Learn to Fly by Heidi Hutchinson

Lenny Evans felt like her life was suffocating her. She would do just about anything to change that, which is how she ended up taking a job that landed her on tour with the biggest rock band in the world. The plan was simple: get a job, get out of town, don't get attached. 

But Lenny has never met anyone like the members of Double Blind Study and they easily adopt her into their makeshift family. 

Now, Lenny finds herself caring far too deeply for these tattooed misfits, daily bringing them closer and closer to revealing Lenny's true past and everything she's running from. 

Sometimes crashing headlong into the unknown isn't the worst thing.

WARNING: contains foul-mouthed rock stars, irritating exes, loud music, an overworked tour manager and random shenanigans.

My 4 Star Review:
Very cute love story of strength and finding healing by choosing your own path. With Rockers and a head-strong and guarded girl, we find healing hearts and minds. Sometimes things happen in life and you can choose to deal with or run from it, however sometimes running can help you deal.

Lenny is a head-strong and guarded girl who is running from her past and trying to figure out what her next steps in life will be. She is an athlete to the core, coming from an athletic family, and is looking to leave all that behind to join a group of Rockers as their personal assistant. She had no idea at the time she took the job, that this would heal her as well. 

Luke is the lead singer/guitarist of the band "Double Blind Study" who is used to taking care of his band-mates. He and the group are starting their come-back tour. His manager Carl hired Lenny to be their PA without their knowledge. So when they meet on the plane to the first venue, he is captivated by her and with the group ask her to be their Assistant. But Luke is getting more than he bargained for. 

Lenny and Luke have such good chemistry and its all you can do to not laugh at the way they totally avoid the issue. The band loves Lenny and is quickly taken in by them as the sixth member and nicknamed 'Mama'! You will laugh and laugh and *swoon* and *sigh* with all the flirting and banter between everyone. 

There is so much more to this story...but you will have to read it for yourself! Definitely recommend for anyone looking for a sweet romantic read.

Heidi Hutchinson was born in South Dakota and raised the exact right distance away from the Black Hills. She had an overactive imagination very early on, and wasted no time in getting most of her friends in trouble due to her unrealistic and completely ridiculous ideas. Seeing as she was so lazy and also afraid people would think she was bonkers, she didn't write down any of the story lines that played
out in her daydreams.

During her high school years, she took pen to paper and filled more notebooks than she is proud of with angsty, depressing, self-depreciating poetry. This led to her writing down more things: notes, ideas, character bios, plot twists that had no plot yet to twist. After years of cleaning up her own scraps of imagination with nothing solid to hold on to, she sat down and wrote the story that had been in her head the longest. Fueled by coffee and her unwavering and perfectly normal devotion to Dave Grohl, she discovered a writer living inside of her.

She still lives in the Midwest, though not as close to the Black Hills as she would prefer, with her alarmingly handsome husband and their fearless child. They eat more pizza than God intended and she listens to her music the same way she lives: loudly.
