Four years after leaving her friends and disapproving family behind to pursue her music career she is one of the most famous pop stars in the world. She has almost everything she could ever have hoped for, however Danielle has learned that to reach your dreams sometimes you have to let certain people go. 

Flying home the day before the benefit concert for the new Harrington Foundation's mental health scheme, she decides to try and take the night off, dragging her best friend to the town's biker bar. There she finds the perfect distraction to the life she had always strived for, yet once achieved never felt happy with, and his name is Mike. 

He is young, sexy, demanding and kisses Danielle in a way that has her weak at the knees. He is the perfect distraction for the night. Things turn complicated however, when at the concert she sees Mike, not just in the crowd but up in the Harrington family booth. He was no biker boy. He was Mike Harrington, one of the five Harrington boys. 

Over the next four weeks, one of which is to have publicity shoots for the Harringtons and the other three spent trying to reconnect with her parents, she finds Mike not just be the key to helping her feel like a normal girl again, but might actually just be the key to helping her reconnect with her parents and even help her discover the problem with her music at the moment and why she isn't as happy as she thought she would be. 

Sometimes, the lies we tell ourselves are the ones that require help to see what the truth actually is.

@audreybrewer_ hi, thanks for your feedback! I see what you mean and that definitely isn’t what I meant! I have changed it for that reason, do you think it sounds better now? Thanks again X

Hi! You’re writing is great! But just a thought, maybe “permission” per say isn’t the right word. When I read it the first thing I thought of was oh this guy doesn’t ask for consent. But it’s up to you! I might just not be reading it right. Have a good day!
