Hurt and broken-hearted after a painful divorce, Audrey Blair picks up and moves to Nashville looking for a fresh start. Her faithful German Shepherd, Duke, helps Audrey and her two daughters settle in while Audrey focuses on her work as a vocal coach. Even though she’s currently at odds with her faith, Audrey takes a chance and applies for work at a Christian music label. She’s not looking for a relationship, but a game of fetch changes everything when her dog runs into Troy Jackson.
Troy, the billionaire owner of Arise Music, is too handsome, too busy and too haunted by his past for a relationship. He’s intrigued with the new vocal coach who plays a dangerous game of fetch. Her musical abilities draw out a song that’s long been silent within him.
Taken in by Troy’s kindness and chocolate brown eyes, Audrey’s heart shifts and she decides to give him a chance. Chasing fireflies with Troy changes the way she looks at the handsome billionaire and her heart feels like it’s finally on the mend.
Troy finds himself falling in love with Audrey, but when the truth about his past comes to light, will Audrey’s faith be lost forever? With their love on the line, Troy is willing to accept help from anyone—even Audrey’s dog, but it might require more than just a game of fetch to win her over.

This was a fun, short, clean romance. The way Audrey and Troy met was cute and set the stage for Duke’s involvement in the story. I appreciated that though Duke had a role in the book and was mentioned numerous times, his part was not forced, nor was it over the top.
The relationship between Audrey and Troy was natural and believable. I always appreciate when the emphasis is not on the physical, and did appreciate the way that Troy was such a gentleman he wouldn’t consider doing more than just kissing Audrey outside of marriage.
While Troy was a billionaire and Audrey was not, even the money was not emphasized as a big deal, other than Troy’s friend, Mike, being concerned that she might be a gold-digger. Even Troy wasn’t really concerned with his money other than being glad he could use it to help others.
While there was a Christian element to the book, it was not strong nor was it forced on the reader. The story dealt with trust and forgiving others but was not preachy in any way. I don’t believe a non-Christian would be offended by the story and the elements of Christianity that were there.View Spoiler »(I’m being careful here to not reveal more than I should, hopefully this doesn’t spoil things too much for you) One thing that I wish had been clarified in the resolution of their conflict. Troy mentioned early into their relationship that he was saving himself for marriage, but then the suggestion was made that maybe he hadn’t saved himself . It would have been nice to know if it was just the tabloids who were wrong, or if he made commitment after he started with a clean slate. « Hide Spoiler
