Broken Down by Amanda K. Byrne

Book Description

The one thing he could do for her was let her go. Until he couldn’t.
When Thieves’ guitarist Shane Jones lost his close friend to a freak accident, Krista Conner helped him through the worst of his grief. He kept their late-night trysts a secret to protect her from the tabloids, and when she broke up with him, he let her go.

But he never got over her.

Months later, his world is rocked again by the death of his brother mere weeks before the biggest Thieves album yet. Grieving and desperate for peace, he tracks Krista down, craving the salvation he found in her sweet spirit. Only this time, he’s determined not to leave.

Krista left Shane because her life was a mess. She’s rebuilt it, piece by challenging piece, making some hard decisions along the way. She’s settled into a new city and a new life, and for the first time in a long time, she’s content and happy. Then Shane turns up, promising to stay, promising to care. Promising everything.

Shane’s the one she wants, but the toughest choice she made could drive him away for good.

Shane Jones has suffered a lot of grief in the last year.  When he lost his close friend to a freak accident, he turned to Krista Connor.  Shane refused to take their "relationship" outside the bedroom in order to protect her from the tabloids.  And when Krista gets tired their "relationship", she leaves.  And Shane lets her walk away.

When Shane's brother dies of an overdose, Shane, once again, wants to turn to the one person that was there for him before: Krista.  He wants her in his life for the long haul and he is determined to show her what she means to him (before and now).

Krista left Shane and her life in LA because her life was a mess.  She wanted more than a "friends-with-benefits" relationship with Shane, but he didn't seem to want it.  Her job was uber-stressful and causing her additional health problems.  And her family life was weighing her down with her brother in and out of rehab.  So she packed up her life and moved up to Portland.  
She is FINALLY getting her life and health back in order when Shane shows back up in her life.

But choices were made that can hurt them both.  Will they be able to actually communicate and break through their walls to build a REAL relationship?
