Blog Tour: Sound Bites by Rachel Burke Excerpt & eBook Giveaway!

About Sound Bites: A Rock & Roll Love Story:

Renee Evans has a knack for trouble. After walking in on her best friend and boyfriend in bed together, twenty-five year-old Renee flees sunny Los Angeles and her dream job as a music journalist and returns to her hometown of Boston – only to meet Dylan Cavallari, the mysterious, aspiring musician who lives in her apartment building. Dylan’s piercing gaze and womanizing demeanor make him exactly the type of guy that Renee should steer clear of – which is most likely the reason she falls for him. But when Renee’s troublesome ex comes back and threatens to drive her and Dylan apart, Renee is forced to face her past and save her relationship with Dylan before it's too late.
Sound Bites dramatizes what happens when Renee finds herself caught between a painful past and an uncertain future. Happiness turns out to be within her grasp, but it all depends on whether she can trust herself enough to make the right decisions. Sound Bites is a novel about love, friendship, betrayal, forgiveness, and the power of music to help you find your way.



Four days had officially passed with no word from him. His cell was still shut off, my messages continued to escalate to higher levels of desperation, and my nerves made it barely possible to even function.
Every day that went by without him was like a blur. It was as if reality had finally set in. I was lost. I had become completely accustomed to spending every waking, non-working hour with someone, and then one day, he was gone. Work helped distract me temporarily, even though it was hard to concentrate on resume writing when he was all I could think about. But I knew that if I stayed home, I’d be permanently glued to my window, dying a slow and painful torturous death. I tried my hardest not to stress and told myself that Dylan just needed some time to cool off and when he was ready to talk, he’d come home.
The truth was, every day spent without Dylan felt like a part of me died.
