MY LIFE AS A MIXTAPE
"One mistake doesn't make you a failure.”
I always saw relationships as a burden instead of a gift…until my world imploded…until Wynn showed me their true value. Now, I have to find a way to convince her that I’ve changed my tune.
Bass player, Lonnie Brennan, is known as the band’s overgrown jokester. He came to Tennessee to make sure his best friend and bandmate didn’t disappear after falling in love and moving across the country in just three short weeks. What Lonnie doesn’t expect is to fall in love himself…with the Southern charm and sweet-tea lifestyle of the small town he’s landed in. He certainly isn’t in the mood to be attracted to a tall Strawberry Shortcake who is entirely off limits.
Wynn Nichols is known as the conscious of her friends. She’s always been the stable one—until both her marriage and her job drift away. Now, she’s come home feeling like a disappointment and a failure. With divorce papers in hand, she certainly isn’t looking to be attracted to anyone, and certainly not the redheaded lumberjack who treats life like a series of jokes.
But when Lonnie finds himself saving her more than once, and Wynn finds herself helping him shoulder responsibilities he never expected to have, they form an unlikely friendship that gets them through the darkest days of their lives.
Question is, will they risk that friendship for a chance at something more?

“My Life as a Mixtape is a beautiful addition to the series, it includes everyone we fell in love with from the previous books and gives us a wonderful new story in Wynn and Lonnie. It's a slow-burn, a nice long one that is well worth the wait." -Goodreads
