“His eyes settled on her…piercing green embers of flame that revealed the ferocity of his pain and passion, yet still shrouded him under veils of ever deepening mystery that made every ounce of her ache to unravel him.”
Tegan Lockwood’s dreams were dead, sacrificed on the noble altar of duty before they ever had a chance to live. Her entire existence was disappearing into the abyss of apathy as she labored her days away keeping her family’s struggling business alive. There would be no emotion, no color, no beauty in her life. That is, until a mysterious visitor begins to draw her out of the darkness of her past towards something that will challenge the boundaries of her world, and unlock the most deeply held secrets of her heart.
Dallas Coryell is a musician and author residing deep in the untamed wilds of Michigan, USA, where he desperately attempts to assign meaning to his world through bouts of maniacal creative catharsis and pitifully doomed hopeless romantic fantasies.

Sometimes all you need is someone who believes in you and teaches you that love can heal all wounds. 'Melody's Key' is a story about growing up, learning that people are more than just what you can see at plain sight and that life is full of surprises.
Tegan is a lovely girl, she gave up her dreams of attending college to stay home and help her family with their business. One summer a famous singer arrives at their place and at first she thinks he's all that magazines says. Of course, Mason is more than just a sexy singer and has demons of his own.
I adored the characters, Tegan is really human and feels like a real person. Her bunch of brother and sisters are all great and hilarious. Her friend, Simon is adorable and I think was one of the best from the book. I liked how Mason is portrayed and his evolving is natural.
The romance is sweet and innocent at first. Both of them are broken somehow and they need to trust each other before move on beyond a friendship. Their pasts hide many secrets and suffering. Then, little by little they help to heal and let go of the fears, doubts and the what if?.
Overall, I really enjoyed the book and as a romance, it's a really good choice.
