Changed your thoughts on love and commitment…
And turned all that you believe in upside down...
What if a mirror reflected what you loved…
And what you lost?
As we got closer to home, I decided I had more to say. I gulped in a big breath and said, “Mitchell, I don’t want you to leave me.”
“Waiving your fifth-amendment rights, I see.” We stopped at a red light and he turned to me. His gaze was intense, seeming to look right through me, seeing my soul, my thoughts – my heart.
Finally, he asked, “Why?”
“Not because I don’t want to be alone, because I want to be together. There’s a big difference.”
“Just for the night?”
“What do you want?”
“No, Renie, you started this conversation. You opened this door. I want to know what you want.”
“You, Mitchell. All of you. I want to be together with you.”
“Don’t open a door you aren’t ready to continue through, Renie, because I won’tlet you close it on me again. Make sure what you really want. I mean it. You won’twalk away from me again.”

Rock and Roll Trilogy
Beth Morgan is a young woman who’s just been given the ‘once in a lifetime’ opportunity to meet her favorite band, Traveler. That meeting leads to a chance encounter with her idol, the band’s lead singer, Andy Stevens. What follows is a love story. A journey through the peaks, valleys and trials of a relationship lived in the public eye; the miles they traveled together through his career in the music business, and her struggles to stay obscure in a world she never really settled into comfortably. In the end it’s all about love, fate, and what the heart can’t hold back.
Ralph Waldo Emerson said: “For everything you have missed, you have gained something else, and for everything you gain, you lose something else.” That quote was profound to Carlee.
She’d experienced great loss, but love surrounded her. Andy worked hard to fill any void she experienced. He made sure that what was missing was full. He learned late in life how to live a life based on someone else’s needs. He gave her love and support, his time and his heart.
But nothing she knew could have prepared her for the love she found on a once in a lifetime European jaunt with her Papa…
Andy Stevens was a ‘Rock God’ of the music world in the 1970s and 80s. He lived his life on the road, going from one concert venue to the next. And then he met the sweet girl-next-door, Beth Morgan, his “Bethy”. As a couple they spent many years together traveling life’s highway – a path with many ups and downs, detours, and finally a place where they would spend their forever together, but forever was a brief moment.
Carlee Oliver became an unexpected addition to Andy’s life that changed his direction completely. She taught him how to love – unconditionally – and became the daughter he never knew he needed. But now she was off in Europe, married, sharing her life with a new husband, and for the first time in many years, Andy found himself alone.
Reflections of years past and memories led him on a new journey.
Could he share his heart again…?
