The Book: Heart’s Strum
The Author: Charity Parkerson
The Story: For a moment, Jamie held the world, even though it wasn’t his to hold…
Jamie has spent his entire life playing the good twin. Now, he’s the one standing out after signing with Guillotine Records. Two years of being on his own in California hasn’t lessened his desire for the man who made it happen. Too bad that man belongs to one of Jamie’s oldest friends.
Fate is about to hand him an unexpected chance.
After losing everything, Hawke needs a break from reality. Too many lies and heartaches have left him with nothing except nightmares he can’t escape. Seeing Jamie again reminds him of a different time—one where Jamie made him feel a spark of something pure.
Can Jamie undo the years of damage caused by his so-called friend?
In the face of everything Maddox has done to Hawke, Jamie can’t let this chance pass him by. No friendship in the world is strong enough to overlook the pain Maddox has caused. Jamie can’t think of a thing he’d rather do than pick up the pieces of Hawke’s life, but will Hawke let him?
Sometimes the most beautiful relationships spring from the most broken places.

Review by Robin:
I do love this series and the characters in it. Hawke has been a favorite of mine since he first came on scene. There is so much packed into this story, that it’s very hard to write a review that isn’t full of spoilers.
I will say that it made me laugh, made me cry, and made me very mad… sometimes all at once! With all the lies, betrayals, misunderstandings, and miles between and around them will Hawke and Jamie even have a chance for a true Happy Ever After? You’ll have to read the book to find out!
Review by JustMe:
Thank you, for giving Hawke the happiness he deserved. And in a quite inventive way, too. The reader should have read the previous book to be able fully to appreciate this one.
Hawke has been in a destructive relationship with Maddox for a while. Hawke is the kind of man that makes everybody love him. He is so “clever” in giving people what they need, never demanding anything for himself. Hawke is easy to get attached to. It is probably why Maddox can never let go, even if he neither can stay faithful. Strangely enough I pity Maddox, because he had something potentially beautiful and still let it slip away when a temptation arose.
Jamie got the opportunity to get out into the (rock) world thanks to Hawke. Hawke was the man he has loved for ages, but the one not his to pursue. Until Hawke came to visit. There has been a development Jaime had not known about. One that made it possible for Jamie to snatch Hawke away and bring him on Jamie’s tour to Europe. Gretna Green was an important part of it (google it, if you do not know what it’s about).
I liked the way the author let the twins to look out for each other. Joss has done his, will Jamie help so Joss get his? I hope the author will solve it in a satisfactory manner, too.
