They’re both back in Red River for good, and the chemistry is stronger than ever. But will her secret tear them apart all over again?
Dylan McCoy is restless to take over Red River’s favorite watering hole—Cotton Eyed Joe’s—when his Uncle Joe retires. First, he’s got to prove he has what it takes to carry on Joe’s legacy. Finally able to put the painful scars from his days working in L.A.’s trendy music scene behind him, he sets out to host a weekend workshop for songwriters. He calls in a favor and lines up some of the biggest musicians in the biz to attend. Life is good. Until the business owners who occupy the commercial space next door threaten to ruin his establishment right before the rock star lineup of attendees are scheduled to blow into town.
Hailey Hicks left Red River six years ago with a secret. Now—as a seasoned hairstylist who’s made her own way in the world—she’s back in town to help her cousin expand her salon. Unfortunately, the renovations aren’t going as planned and draw fire from the saloon next door. When she comes face to face with her ex, Dylan McCoy, sparks fly. Can they mend the damage done because of how they parted ways? Or will her secret cause them both to get burned again?
“I like the look of this place. It’s very swanky.” The modern design of chrome, white, and black gave it a chic look. “Doesn’t really fit Red River’s norm, but it seems to work.”
“Kind of like your long hair. If you want the norm, you’ll have to see if Bill’s Barbershop has any openings.” Hailey had him lean back, and she turned on the water. It gurgled to life. She stood over him, holding the sprayer in one hand and testing the water temperature with the other. “The earrings aren’t the standard look around here either.” She finally looked him in the eye. “I only remember one earring when we…” She hesitated. “Before you left for L.A.”
“The other earring was an addition once I moved to the West Coast. It was a thing there.”
She stayed rooted in place and didn’t move again.
“What?” He scrunched his brows.
“I saw all the things happening for you as a new face in the music world. The tabloids went crazy over every move you made.” She focused on his hair, went to touch it, then froze. Her fingers lingered a fraction above his head.
“You read about me?” He couldn’t help it. He really couldn’t. He had to ask. Had to know if she’d been thinking about him.
“No.” Her gaze snapped to his.
“Then why is your ringtone one of my old songs?”
She blanched. “That’s one of your songs? I had no idea.”
Bullshit, but whatever.
“I saw the magazine covers while I was standing in the checkout line at the grocery store,” she said.
“So, you read what those covers said about me?” Now he was just teasing her for fun. How could he not? Pink tinged her cheeks, and he wanted to brush his fingers across them to feel the warmth.
“They were a little hard to miss. Every rag in the country put you on the cover for a while.”
“Don’t believe everything you read.” The stupid shit that had been printed about him when he was still with the band, then after he left L.A. and headed back to Red River was so far from the truth that it had been too ridiculous to deserve a response. Which was exactly what he’d told any of the locals who’d been bold enough to ask.
“Interesting that I never heard much about you. You’re one of the few people no one knew much about in this town.” He studied her expression.
Something flashed in her eyes. She didn’t offer any information, so he left it alone.
She pulled her top lip between white teeth. Still hadn’t started washing his hair.
He let one side of his mouth quirk up into a sly smile. “It’s okay to touch it.”
Her pretty eyes turned to saucers. “Wh…what?”
“My hair. You look almost afraid to touch it, but it’ll be a little hard for you to cut it if you don’t.”
The muscles in her slender throat moved as she swallowed. “Oh. Right.” Finally, she dove in, running fingers through his hair and wetting it with the sprayer.
It felt spectacular. Stupendous. Shockingly sensual.
