Aria is a story about music and musicians, but at its heart it’s a story about human beings with real challenges. Of all the novels in the Blue Notes Series, Aria is perhaps the most realistic. For Sam Ryan, who lost the only man he thought he’d ever love, the idea of taking a chance on a new relationship is overwhelming, frightening. Aiden Lind doesn’t want to admit that Sam broke his heart when they first met five years before, but when he meets Sam again he’s understandably hesitant to take another chance on Sam. Aiden believes that his career ended their relationship the first time around, and he’s afraid to believe that anyone would want a long-term relationship with someone who is on the road more often than he’s at home.
But at the heart of Aiden and Sam’s problems is lack of communication. Fear, misunderstandings, and mistaken assumptions threaten to tear them apart for good. They both sense the growing distance between them, but neither is sure of how to begin to talk about the issues that stand between their love. And really, what human being hasn’t experienced just the same fear. How many of us haven’t asked ourselves what someone else will think of us if we’re honest about our feelings?
I hope you enjoy Aria! -Shira
