I love love love Quinn James and his introverted ways. Part of it could be due to the fact that y son is extremely introverted. I could see many of the same traits in both Quinn and my son. Once Quinn picks up a guitar, he transforms. He comes alive. Music runs through him. He doesn’t have a single memory without music or band life. He grew up on a tour bus, recording studio, or where ever his drummer father was. Quinn loves his quiet life. He plays on open mic nights where he meets Eleanora Boone fresh from college.
Eleanora is from a rich southern family, deeply rooted in traditions. One tradition is unofficial arranged marriages. She was dating Roy all through high school. She thought she was in love with him. But shortly after she left, Roy was dating other women. Sure, in high school there were rumors that Roy was cheating on her with other women. She never had proof. She was in love with him so she believed everything he said. He has been pressuring her to come home so they can announce their engagement. Even though he hasn’t asked her.

She’s expected to come home and marry Roy. Just the thought sends waves of panic through her. When the opportunity arises to drive her graduation present home instead of flying, she takes it. Instead of driving home, she drives to California and shares an apartment with her college friend, Kellie.
