For Never and Always

Offstage Book 1 · Rica Grayson

About this ebook


When he knocked on my door seven years ago to tell me he wanted to follow his dreams, I let him go. And I learnt one thing— some things just aren’t meant for you.

I didn’t think I’d ever see Clay Lyons again, but I’m proven wrong when a lucky trip turns out to be a set-up. He may be one of the biggest country stars now, but he hasn’t changed at all. I just need to remember one thing: best friends—it’s all we ever are. But when we meet again, it’s hard to remember that.


I may be getting a break after my tour, but there’s one person I want to see, and I’ll do what it takes to make it happen.

But things are different this time.  

I shouldn’t want to kiss my best friend. 

I shouldn’t want to hold her. 

But I do. And when the truth comes out, I might just lose the one person who means the most to me.
