Girl in Love by Caisey Quinn

Girl in Love (Kylie Ryans #3)
New Adult Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 4, 2014


She’s living her dream…

Kylie Ryans is the biggest thing to come out of Nashville since, well, since Trace Corbin. With a hit album and a powerful label behind her, she appears to be the girl who has it all.

But appearances can be deceiving.

Fresh out of rehab, Trace Corbin is ready to take on the world. Just not the girl he walked away from. Because if there’s one thing he knows for certain, it’s that the people you love are the one’s who have the power to destroy you.

As their worlds collide, they’ll have to make the ultimate choice. Follow their dreams, or give it all up for love.

They say love conquers all, but for Kylie and Trace, it just might wreck everything they’ve worked for. 

Deleted Scene

Chapter 9
 A deleted chapter from Claire Ann's POV - Only available in the deluxe paperback version of GIRL IN LOVE.
Claire Ann rushed into her brother’s bedroom and shut the door behind her. Her heart broke wide open at the sight of him sitting on his bed with his head in his hands.
“Rae invited her, Trace. She contacted someone at the label and pretended to be me. She’d overheard us stressing about the event on the phone. She thought it would help.” His sister reached out and rested a hand on his shoulder. “Trust me, I don’t want her here any more than you do. But Pauly called around and apparently the label was pushing for it too. They asked her to attend and maybe perform. Apparently her attendance drew in some of the last-minute sponsors. I’m sorry I didn’t make the connection sooner. I thought—”
“Did she bring anyone?” He looked up, and his eyes were full of an emotion she didn’t have a name for. A mix of pain and longing and desperation.
Claire Ann knew he was asking because Kylie had a boyfriend. According to the tabloids anyway. A rocker dude with tattoos all over the place that was from their area. She’d been too many years ahead of him in school to know him, but she was pretty sure Trace did. Rae wasn’t the only one guilty of sneaking a peek online now and then. 
“Just the American Idol girl.”
“Right. Okay. Is she going to sing or what?” His eyes hardened and he stood. Claire Ann knew this meant he was patching up his wounded heart and resuming with business as usual.
She cleared her throat and checked her watch. “Yeah, um, as long as it’s okay with you she’ll go on right after the auction. She’ll sing first. Then Gretchen. Then you. After that, we’ll wrap up and you’ll thank everyone for their contributions. Some people will want autographs and photos and then we’ll shut it down. We could head out now and try and get some of those handled so we can wrap up even sooner. Sound okay?”
Her brother nodded and headed towards the door. “Is she—” He cut himself off with a deep breath. “Is she still in the house?”
“No. Rae just escorted them out.”
Relief smoothed his features. “Good.”
She wanted to hug him. To soothe him like she’d tried to do when he was a little boy. Tuck him in bed and sing him a song until he fell asleep. They’d grown up in hell, but they’d gotten each other through it. He was going through his own personal hell now and there wasn’t a single thing she could do about it.
“Stop.” He shook his head before she could say anything. “Stop looking at me like that. I’m a grown man. I’ll live.”
She sighed. “I’m sorry things didn’t work out for the two of you, Trace. Everyone deserves to be happy.” Claire Ann bit her lip. She sincerely hoped he believed that too. Her biggest fear was that he wouldn’t approve of her relationship with the man who made her happy. “Did she make you happy?”
“She made me…” He closed his eyes, and she watched as her brother swallowed hard. “She made me crazy. She made me want a life I could never have. Made me think I could be a man I could never be.” He smiled, but she knew him well enough to know it was forced. “I’m good. I swear. Let’s go.”
She tried not to be obvious about how closely she was watching him as they headed outside. But she could barely see his face. It was dark now and the lights she’d ordered were mostly focused on the buffet in the tent and the shiny black truck a local dealership had donated to be raffled off. They were using it as a stage tonight. She threw up a silent prayer that once Kylie sang she’d get the hell out of there so Trace wouldn’t have to see her again.
Cars were beginning to fill the drive like cattle. They had to maneuver in between them to get over to the area where the sponsors were being seated. Her brother smiled and shook hands like a champ, joking and laughing with high-powered professionals even though she was pretty positive he was dying inside.
Glancing around the tent, she saw Pauly doing pretty much the same as Trace. When he looked up, their gazes met. He smiled apologetically. She looked away.
A girl could only deal with so many broken hearts at a time. She’d have to put her own away for later.
