Ex-this, former that. Noah Seymour has a second chance, having been ambushed by Bands Back Together, a reality TV show that reunites once-popular bands for a televised concert.

Pondering whether to take the stage again, Noah daydreams about his past in The Vows: his first tour (a disaster), his first album (nominated for a Grammy), his first love (a fellow musician already in a relationship), and his final betrayal.

Now a high school teacher in New Orleans, maybe Noah can use The Vows’ reunion as a means to bed flirty guidance counselor Chloe Sorensen? Or maybe it’s his ticket out of writing lesson plans, unjamming copy machines, and loosening neckties at three o’clock? But can Noah in good conscience abandon Miles Lafayette, his hipster student who follows him everywhere, seeking his advice? Furthermore, is it even possible for an ex-rock star to improve the second time around, like a song in reprise at the end of an album?

Dizzying chord changes, bright lights, band mates, and a ex-lover come crashing back into Noah’s life, whether he’s ready or not.

INDIE DARLING is a novel about a man who has lost the luster of his life—and the choices he makes to get it back.
