Aileen Foster, poor, orphaned, musically gifted, never imagined her life could change so much, so fast, but getting a job as interpreter for boyband UK Crush pitched her headfirst into tumult and a glamorous life she never thought she’d have. Now, engaged to band member Theo Shelley, and having survived her audition to Hamilton Conservatory in Manhattan, she’s off to the Bahamas with the boys while they write their new album. Life has never been easy for her, but she’s trying.More info →
Birdie has met the boys of UK Crush, fallen in love with Teddy, and become engaged to him in the middle of the Brooklyn Bridge. She’s accompanied the boys to the Bahamas while they write their new album, and settled in to her new life as the significant other of a world famous rock star.
Now, due to cataclysmic events beyond her control, she finds herself alone and adrift in a foreign land, living a life she no longer recognizes as her own. She has to learn to love Teddy all over again, not to mention Ronan, Geth, Matty, and even herself. She has to come to terms with a terrible world and the terrible people in it, and learn the dark side of being in the public eye.More info →
Birdie’s life is nearly unrecognizable from what it was when she met the boys of UK Crush. What was once a fairy tale, a love story, a romance worthy of being a movie, has morphed into a nightmare, an unending stream of one trauma blending into another. Her dreams of being a concert pianist, a mother, even a happy person, have been crushed, possibly forever, by the appearance in her life of monsters she didn’t even realize existed in this world. And Teddy, and to a lesser degree the other boys, too, have to deal with the guilt of having brought these people into contact with her.
Birdie has to wake up from the lovely dream which was her life up to this point and deal with the horrible humiliation and publicity of a trial, where even her most private life becomes fodder for the tabloids. The boys, too, have to see their beloved girl through new eyes, and see the real woman she is. Birdie and Teddy have to be strong in ways they never thought they would, and face reality, maybe for the first time ever, and move forward into it together.More info →
Birdie has come such a long way from the shy and introverted young woman who met Geth, Ronan, Matthew, and Teddy on that fateful day in Tokyo so long ago. She’s traveled the world, auditioned for music school, gotten engaged on a world-famous landmark, and been happier than she ever imagined she could be. She’s also endured more suffering and misery than she could have imagined existed in the world.
She and Teddy have adjusted and come to terms with the harsh reality dealt to them, and moved on with their lives. Birdie and the boys have, at long last, come to the end of their youth, and are ready to embark on the journey of being adults, of living the rest of their lives.
This is the last installment of the UK Crush series, and it is filled with the usual love and laughter and tears, weddings, and surprises. There are dogs, cats, toddlers, babies, honeymoons, and new romances to explore. Come along with Birdie and Teddy as they are finally able to come together and live in happiness and peace, and find the joy they have sought for so long.More info →
