BOOK BLURB:

Music . . . the heart’s greatest librarian.

The average song is three and a half minutes long; those three and a half minutes could lead to a slow blink, a glimpse of the past, or catapult the soul into heart-shattering nostalgia.

At the height of my career, I had the life I wanted, the life I’d always envisioned. I’d found my tempo, my rhythm. Then I received a phone call that left me off key.

You see, my favorite songs had a way of playing simultaneously. I was in love with one man’s beats and another’s lyrics. But when it came to the soundtrack of a life, how could anyone choose a favorite song? So, to erase any doubt, I ditched my first-class ticket and decided to take a drive, fixed on the rearview.

Two days.  One playlist.  And the long road home to the man who was waiting for me.

I won’t give storyline details because I truly believe that this book should be read with only the information supplied in the blurb for the best reading experience.

In his warmth, I was forgiven, desperately in love with the love that was embedded before I knew the meaning. The love that waited for me; the love that showed me the way home. Complete.

HOLY HOT DRUMSTICKS!  Drive delivers an ecstatic rush.  Utterly compelling and masterfully written by Kate Stewart.  You’ll meet three dynamic characters in Stella, Reid and Nate, all sharing a passion for music in their own personal way, and thrown together in a story that rocks them to their very souls.  A second chance at love with a third-party triangle.  Adding to the already spectacular vibes is the aura of the Austin, Texas music scene.

Love triangles – fan or no?  They can be risky and tricky to pull off.  This well-constructed triangle will assuredly throw you off pitch and out of sync.  Most of the time there is always a “bad choice” and a “good choice.”  Here, you couldn’t lose.  That’s what made this one so deeply emotional.  I totally loved both heroes, and never once felt disapproval in any of their interactions.  Nobody cheats.  It’s simply a case of meant to be.  I’ll admit that I don’t mind a good three-sided love story ever so often.  I don’t want a steady diet, but I believe in that old adage, variety is the spice of life, and I’m always looking for something to change things up a bit.  Otherwise, I get bored easily.  I hardly put this book aside to take a much-needed break.  

I used to think I was cursed for having fallen in love with two men. But, in hindsight, I realized what a gift it was. They were my lovers, my teachers, my best friends, and I would love them both until I took my last breath.

From an author who is quickly becoming a favorite, Drive is a long and winding road filled with missteps, misunderstandings, soul-searing emotion using lively dialogue that has that “show me the money” feeling rather than just telling me all about the moolah.  Here, the author brings these characters to life on the pages, thereby a sense of realness to the overall effect in their feelings and interactions.  Kate Stewart excels here and managed to tear my heart to shreds and somehow paste each piece back together. She has topped the chart with this rock star romance. From the characters to the storyline, to the exquisite presentation — it hits the charts at number one!

I can’t begin to do this amazing story justice because it’s impossible.  Suffice to say that this book made a big impression, the beat still goes on and has me thinking about it two weeks later.  I’m still re-reading my highlighted passages over and over again. From start to finish Drive was stunning.

And that just about says it all.
