Rifts and Refrains (Hush Note #2) by Devney Perry

Rifts and Refrains by Devney Perry is now live!

(Hush Note, #2)
Publication Date : September 29, 2020
Publisher : Devney Perry LLC


From the moment Quinn Montgomery sat behind her first snare and cymbal set, she was destined for fame and glory. As Hush Note’s infamous female drummer, she sets the rhythm for the band’s chart-toppings hits. When people tap their feet to their music, it’s to her pulse.

Quinn is content to live in a world away from her family and the cage of her youth. Her only regret is leaving Graham Hayes behind without a goodbye. No matter how many sold-out stadiums she plays, no matter how many crowds sing her songs, his voice haunts her when the music stops.

When a family tragedy forces her to return home to Montana, she plans to leave the second she’s paid her respects. But seeing Graham again turns her life upside down. As a boy, he wasn’t able to make her stay. As a man, he might be her future.

If they can mend their rifts and find solace in the refrains.

She took one step before stopping. A smile tugged at the corner of her mouth, the same corner I’d kissed earlier, and I fought the urge to stand and capture that mouth again. Her smile broadened, though there was pain in her eyes.

“Colin is a cool kid. You’re a good dad, Graham. I always knew you would be.”

She might as well have stabbed me in the chest.

“Thanks,” I said, watching as she walked away.

Fuck me.

When had I never loved that woman?

Maybe that kiss had woken me up. Maybe it had made me realize how goddamn lonely I’d been without her. I had Colin, but there was a corner of my heart that would always belong to Quinn.

I should have followed her nine years ago.

Because now it was too late.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Back in May of this year I read my very first Devney Perry book and I haven’t looked back since. This woman has talent. She has a way of reaching into your soul and squeezing tight while at the same time showering you in hope. #WordWizardry. I haven’t yet read every book she has ever published, but I am confident in my assessment. She is magic.

Once again, I have to tell you that I cried a lot. There’s a depth of emotion that surrounds this story that left me breathless in many places. It wasn’t just the slow-burn, second chance to get things right journey between Quinn and Graham, it was everything. I’m crying right now remembering and feeling everything. This is a special story. It’s a story of coming home, of family, of forgiveness, of peace, of overcoming, of acceptance, of … everything; and it was all so beautifully unfolded that my heart literary hurt. I don’t have any other way to put it. I ached for the girl that was and the girl that is. I ached for the family that was and the family that is. I ached for the boy that was and the boy that is. I ached so badly for the loss and I ached for the gain. I just ached. And it was gloriously beautiful.

This story is a second chance romance that will have your heart breaking. It’s emotional, raw, and quite frankly a little depressing. It was different then I imagined it was going to be. I thought it would be more about the rockstar life, but it wasn’t. It was more about Quinn’s personal life outside of the band and outside their fame. Although, there is plenty of music throughout the story.

I did not read book one of this series, so I didn’t have any prenotions when it came to Quinn. She does come off as a [email protected]$& at the beginning, but she just has years of built up hurt and heartache. Her walls are built a mile high and she protects herself by deflecting her actual feelings and emitting anger and annoyance. Quinn is not just musically talented, she’s kind, caring, and somewhat insecure (at least when it comes to her family and hometown).

Graham is kind, caring, strong, manly, and smart. He too, is musically talented which I think is part of the reason he had such a connection to Quinn. But he is also somewhat bitter, and full of resentment as well as guilt when it comes to Quinn. He has new priorities and responsibilities that are in the forefront, leaving him little interest in rehashing old wounds.

Graham and Quinn cannot fight fate, they were made for each other. Their journey is emotional, but it’s also beautiful. They were both forced to face the past and confront all the years of built up hurt, mistakes, and misunderstandings. As the saying goes; “things happen for a reason.” They both come out stronger then ever and in the end it was all worth it to get their happily ever after.
