Skyler’s floored when he sees his best friend Jonnie after being gone all summer. Growing up, she was the tomboy he chased around the playground, but now? His connection with her off the field runs deeper than a long pass into the end zone.
There’s just one problem. If your best friend is a girl… doesn’t that make her your girlfriend?
Football is easy. Falling in love with the wide receiver? Things couldn’t be more complicated.

Billionaire rock star, Ian Taylor, controls everything in his life… except love. His girlfriend dumped him on New Year’s Eve, and everyone else gets close to him for his money and fame. His best chance at finding love is to meet a girl who has no idea he’s a rock star.
Quiet, unassuming Megan wants nothing to do with love. Her goal is to finish her last year of college, focused on her studies. Having a boyfriend can wait until after graduation.
When they meet in the most unlikely place for romance, Ian’s ready to win Megan’s hesitant heart, but not ready to reveal his superstar identity. Once she learns the truth, Megan finds that she doesn’t fit into Ian’s world of private jets, backstage parties, and star-crazed girls throwing themselves at him.
Can Megan see past Ian’s dishonesty and lifestyle? Or will their love song end before it’s begun?
Note from Julie: Thank you for taking the time to get to know the rock stars from Buxton Peak. I hope you love them just as much as I do. Even the bad boys still have good hearts. They are raw, real, flawed, down to earth characters and, although the books are clean, they have been described as edgy. Multiple times. That’s why I included edgy in the title. I want you, the reader, to know what you’re getting. I mean, what could possibly go wrong when you throw together a youth pastor from an inner-city church, an atheist womanizer, a Christian boy who served as a missionary for two years, and two recovering addicts, one of whom experiences a heartbreaking overdose. Cry with them. Hate them. Forgive them. Walk beside them as they fall in love, and sometimes out of love. And let me know what you think. I love feedback from my readers, and I look forward to hearing from you.
Sincerely, Julie L. Spencer

A schoolteacher navigating a midlife crisis, a romance author with an inferiority complex, and a seventy-hour road trip across the United States. What could possibly go wrong?
Although not autobiographical, I wrote this little romantic comedy sitting in my Subaru Outback beside my best friend and eternal companion, Clayton as we drove from Michigan to Las Vegas and back.
We brainstormed together, drew upon everything we loved about each other, and everything that annoyed us about each other. We even stole tons of moments from our actual experiences while travelling. Which parts of the story actually happened? And which are made up? That’s up for the reader’s imagination.
I will tell you this: no Corvettes were destroyed in the creation of this book!
