Marguerite is on holiday in London, finally free after 27 years of feeling like a hostage to her strict and overbearing parents. Also in London, and struggling with his thoughts of freedom, is Chase Martin?one fourth of the most successful band on the planet?who knows that freedom can only come at the expense of his band-mates.

They come from completely different worlds, but when those worlds collide?on a rainy night in a small coffee shop?nothing will ever be the same again. Before ever laying eyes on him, his pain and anxiety somehow reaches her, and she feels moved to alleviate it... to offer comfort, which he desperately needs. After years of performing with his band-mates, they are closer than brothers. They are a part of one another, and the compulsion he is feeling to separate from them, is tearing him apart.

The strange bond Marguerite and Chase discover goes beyond attraction or desire. It goes beyond love or lust or anything either of them have ever experienced. It is absolutely terrifying, but to walk away from its pull would be like choosing not to breathe.

This is a story of love, loss and heart-break... of family and friendship. This is their story....
Inspired to write this story by a dream she simply couldn't get out of her head, Marguerite Nardone Gruen has enjoyed every step of this journey, laughing and crying along with her characters as they slowly took shape and came to life. While writing the final line was bittersweet, she is thrilled to share this dream, and its heart, wit...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Nice Love Story Marguerite & Chase come from two different backgrounds. Marguerite is grieving the loss of her parents, and Chase is a member of The Band 4. They meet through a not so unusual way, and that is when slowly but surely this romantic novel begins. This book is rebelliously not for the cynical or the realistic minds. It is a fluffy version of what you really wish love to be and to find someone that loves you back in return. They are the yin and yang for each other. Marguerite & Chase felt things before it even was said or sensed things before it was even happening. They completed each other in a way that you envied and wished that this could be in real life. If you are looking for a beautiful and warm read on cloud nine, then this book is right up your alley. There are some tensions, separations, and tiny stress related issues that come up in the relationship, however, nothing beats these two and they overcome every obstacle. The author has great potential in adding a sequel to this story. The plot and summary for this book were all well thought out and good however, lacked a punch. The entirety of the book was splendidly written, romantically inclined and deliciously fed the mind with passion. There was not an overload of characters in the book and the plot emphasized more on the two lovebirds rather than the friends. I enjoyed Marguerite & Chase having a beautiful relationship together. Each of them had a personality that could erase the faults of the other. There was just enough sexual content to make it a good read for any taste and pleasant for its reader. I really liked how everyone had each other’s back and they supported each other in laughter and sorrow. I believe that there is more to come and maybe that was the reason for the story to lack the “Oomph” factor. The pace of the story was well written and the literary standard was satisfactory. I look forward to reading more from this author. I recommend this book to everyone that likes a sweet love story. Written by Jeyran Main
