One wouldn’t expect a sexy-as-sin rocker like Eli Renard to spend time with a woman just as a friend, but that’s exactly what Emersyn Wallace is to him. Just a friend. Even though she’s matured into a beauty, Eli still doesn’t remotely see his childhood pal as a sex-object. When tragedy brings her back into his world, Eli moves mountains to help Emersyn get back onto her feet by finding her a job as a backup singer for Jacob’s Ladder. At first, Eli is thrilled that Emerysn is along on tour, and he sets out to do his best to help her forget her sorrow through a range of crazy friend dates. But after spending so much time with her in such close quarters, Eli finds his feelings beginning to shift. He no longer sees Emersyn as the once awkward young girl he played some of his first songs with. Soon it’s not only his body that reacts to her, but it’s also his heart. He’s about to learn what a dangerous game it is to dry a widow’s tears.
After losing her husband and singing partner in a tragic accident, Emersyn Wallace spent the last eight months drowning in a sea of grief. With the bills piling up and her family and friends concerned about her emotional welfare, she reluctantly agrees to join the Jacob’s Ladder’s tour. While recapturing her lost love of singing and performing, she finds both comfort and healing in Eli’s gregarious personality and outrageous sense of humor. But as the anniversary of her husband’s death approaches, she finds herself in turmoil over her new amorous feelings for Eli.
Can Eli and Emersyn find the perfect melody to transition from friends to lovers, or will their relationship end out of tune?

Jacob’s Ladder: Eli by Kathie Ashley is the second book in her Jacob’s Ladder series, but the first book in the series I have read. I did not feel lost and can be read as a standalone. This was such a sweet story about second chances and hope with all the feels.
Emersyn Wallace lost her husband and is overwhelmed with the loss. Buried in grief and responsibilities that seem too much to bear, an old friend steps in to help her. Eli is determined to help Emersyn in any way he can. As a member of Jacob’s ladder, he convinces her to be a part of the tour. I just absolutely loved Eli. He was so sweet, funny and sexy.
Eli gave Emersyn back her love of music and the support she needed, just when she needed it the most. They were friends for such a long time. They have always been. But now they are spending so much time together, that things are changing for them. But the more time they spend together, Emersyn begins to feel confused and guilt over her emerging feelings for Eli. Can she open her heart again before it’s too late?
I really enjoyed this friends to lovers story that was angsty, emotional and sweet. Emersyn and Eli had great chemistry and a solid friendship. I am very excited to read more of this series!
