Will wedding bells rock out for Louder Than Love’s most beloved couple in this Love and Steel novella?

Falling in love with rock star Adrian “Digger” Graves was a dream come true for former librarian Kat Lewis. But with a little help from friends and family—including Kat’s adorable daughter, Abbey—Adrian has planned an evening and a proposal beyond her wildest dreams.

The night before, Kat witnessed the triumphant reunion of Adrian’s rock band at Madison Square Garden. Tonight, he will escort her to the elegant, ultra-exclusive Library Lion’s benefit. It seems like a fairy tale, but even fairy tales have a deeper, darker side. When old habits return to tempt her knight in shining heavy metal armor, will Kat’s happily ever after come crashing back to reality?

THIS IS AN EPILOGUE NOVELLA THAT PICKS UP THE DAY AFTER LOUDER THAN LOVE ENDS. This novella is intended to be read after Louder Than Love


Deeper Than Dreams is an epilogue novella that picks up the day after Louder Than Love end. When I obtained Deeper Than Dreams and found this out, I went and picked up Louder Than Love to read first. And am I glad that I did! Without the history of Adrian and Kat, this novella would not have been the same. So…if you have not read book one…I suggest you STOP and go read Louder Than Love first.

This novella picked exactly where the first book ended…the next morning. It was engaging in its naturalness…the reader was able to live a morning in their lives as a family…so mundane and everyday…possibly how life would be for this little family of three?

I LOVED the surprise Adrian bestowed upon Kat…and I will leave it at that for you to find out 🙂

One of the points I do like about this novella is that it does not feel like a novella to me. By this I mean that the story was robust enough with details that kept my interest and I was not left with any unanswered feelings or thoughts. The story came to its natural completion and as a reader; I was satisfied and not left for wanting more. Well…that is not entirely true….I would really like to read more of Ms. Topper’s writing. So I shall begin my read of Softer Than Steel (Love & Steel #2).
