Trials & Tracks by Sarah Biermann Promo


"They think Jeremy murdered her."

Drugs pushed them away...will murder bring them together?

Since losing the rock star love of her life, Harvard Law student Dylan Ackhart is doing the best she can to move on. Now in her third and final year, she's doing well in school and just landed her dream internship in Boston's District Attorney's office. She keeps away from the news so she doesn't hear about Jeremy Mason- about his frequent parties, new women, and apparent drug use.

But when the body of a young girl is found in his home, suddenly Dylan and Jeremy are thrust together in the most difficult and awkward of circumstances. Dylan is forced to choose between the only man she ever loved and the only dream she ever wanted. Will she leave everything behind and be with Jeremy? Or will Jeremy find himself in more trouble than she can help him out of?

Trials is one of those stories where you know you can learn a lot from in the end. Even though Dylan tried to move on from Jeremy by being with Scott, the heart wants what the heart wants. Jeremy thought that he was helping Dylan by pushing her away from him, but once the universe pulls them together he realizes that she’s the one for him. They had their obstacles, but those trials are what made them who they are & it made their love for each other so much stronger. For this being Sarah’s second book, I saw the growth in her writing & the story line was on for the history book. I didn’t want this book to be the end of Jeremy & Dylan’s story but like they say all good things must come to an end. Another thing that I noticed was the sex scenes this time around was a bit more hot & steamy, Sarah kicked it up a notch this time around folks. This was a very good book with an excellent story line that will have you applauding the great job that Sarah did, awesome work, fan-fucking-tastic book & I can’t wait to see what you have in store for us.

I finally reach his big, wooden door at the top of the steps. With my heart pounding, I reach quickly for the doorknob. I’m planning to just bust my way in there. But when I lay my hand on the knob, I pause. Because above the pounding in my ears I can hear guitar chords…a melody playing softly through the thick door. Not just any melody, but the most beautiful and heartbreaking melody I’ve ever heard. It’s a simple song, slow and beautiful, a ballad. The sound makes my heart hum and my mind clear. My blood pressure returns to normal again instantly.
The melody continues and it’s so beautiful that I’m compelled to stand in silence and listen. I desperately need to hear it more clearly. I’m scared to go in; afraid the melody will stop when he sees me. I carefully and quietly turn the doorknob, cracking the door just a slight bit. I stop breathing for a moment, praying he hasn’t noticed. When the melody continues, I put my ear up to the crack.
The song fills my head like a dream, each note breaking my heart with the emotion it coveys. Tears spring to my eyes, and I’m not even sure why other than that the haunting tune.
In my heart’s sequestered chambers lies truth stripped of poets gloss…” I hear Jeremy’s voice begin with the melody. His voice, yet not his voice. His voice because it’s still bluesy and rock and roll, but soft and extremely sad. Devastatingly sad. Beautiful…
“Words alone are vain and vacant and my heart is mute…” His voice breaks on the end of the sentence, but the song continues. “In response to aching silence memory summons half heard voices. And my soul finds primal eloquence and wraps me in song…” Tears fall down my cheeks, his singing changing and warming as if he is actually wrapping me in the music he plays. His voice becomes more beautiful as he continues, pained and tortured.
“Wraps me…in song…If you would comfort me, sing me a lullaby. If you would win my heart, sing me a love songIf you would mourn me and bring me to God, sing me a requiem. Sing me to heaven!” His voice crescendos as he sings the lyrics, ending in a wounded plea, as if he’s begging for relief from pain.
I’m sobbing loudly now, and I can’t wait anymore to be in his presence. I push the door open and see his shocked expression from the couch in the living room where he sits. He’s holding his glimmering silver guitar in his hand, and I spot where my name is written in green cursive along the bottom of it.
He looks surprised at first, his eyes wide and breathing rapid. We lock eyes with each other and tears roll down both our cheeks. His fingers move along the neck of the guitar again, not looking away from me. “Sing me a lullaby. A love song. A requiem. Love me, comfort me. Bring me to God.
I put a hand up to my mouth. He takes a shaky breath and continues. “Sing me a love song. Sing me to Heaven…” He finishes, the last note lingering in the air, soft and sweet and agonizing.
My knees give out under the weight of my stress and pain. My emotions have been all over the place. Here I was, coming to scream at him and tell him that I thought he was a piece of shit. Now I find myself sobbing on the floor of his apartment because of the crushing way that I love him. That I can’t live without him. That he needs to tell me it’s not true.

When Harvard Law student, Dylan Ackhart, moves to Boston with her best friend- the last thing she expects to find is Jeremy Mason. Jeremy is sexy, smart, and passionate- and currently the most famous rock star in the world.

From the first moment Dylan meets Jeremy, she's attracted to him. But she soon finds the fame and press can wear on you. Plus, Jeremy seems to be hiding things from her- including his relationship with the mysterious blue-haired girl.

Tracks takes you on a ride through the not so glamorous side of dating a rock star- sex, drugs, rock and roll.


Tracks, tracks, tracks, there’s nothing negative I can say about this book. These books take the readers on one emotional rollercoaster ride, when the ride starts it is very nice ascending ride, then it descending and it will have you not wanting to put the book down. The relationship between Dylan & Jeremy is one that is not at all healthy. Oh it started off hot & steamy, but once Dylan finds out Jeremy’s skeletons that he is holding on to she needs to make the decision of whether or not she should stay with him. Tracks show us that when it comes to huge issues in our lives we need to try & solve them before it festers & get to a point where you just want to feel numb rather than deal with them head on. I cried towards the end of the book, the emotions that Sarah poured out in this book were phenomenal. I was reading saying how do one do this, I bet she was beside herself when writing this book. Overall this book is a very excellent read, great story line & the meaning behind the whole book is very forth coming.
