The early life of Dixie Lark was not easy. Losing her parents and becoming an orphan along with her brother, Dallas Lark at such a young age where they had to grow up on a dirt road in a run down house with their grandparents. When she is in the presence of a fiddle she is in a whole new world of her own that gives her a place that seeks solace and has dreams of becoming more in the country music world.
Leaving Amarillo is the band that Dixie, Dallas, and Gavin Garrison that they created together. When a possible rise to fame opportunity comes up the band takes their show to the Austin Music Fest and they perform their best in hopes to get signed.
Gavin Garrison, our drummer and my brother’s best friend, was the first boy I’d ever had a crush on.
Caught in the middle between two important guys in her life one blood and one that has her blood igniting whenever he is around. After finally deciding to lay it all out her feeling to Gavin while they are at the Austin Music Fest, she is seeking that something more will come out of her declaration. Gavin is holding back due to a promise to his best friend that they strictly be nothing more than a band member and friend to Dixie, however; both are in a dilemma of emotions of whether to give in and risk it all &/or just leave things as be. The resolution that Dixie proposes to Gavin is one night with each other no strings attached in hopes it will be a way to get it out of her system.
“Oh, and Gav?” “Yeah?” I make eye contact, making sure he hears me, that he feels the full weight of my words. “For the record, I don’t make my decisions based on what my brother would say.” He cocks his head to the side and crosses both mouthwatering forearms over his chest. “That so?” Yes. Unlike You.
Wanting more I was pleasantly surprised to see how Dixie was finally determine to not play it safe and go after what she wants. A 4 stars refreshing read to see that this heroine was the one calling the shots and hoping that Gavin goes along and in turn to see where things lead. But just as things looks promising for the band we get hit with obstacles that get in the way of their dreams and goals. Get ready for a twist of love and music!
