Fighting for redemption . . .
I've lived most of my life in darkness, beneath the shadows of secrets and addictions. The last thing I ever wanted to do was hurt the only girl I'd ever loved—the one who brought me into the light. In my entire life I'd made one promise—a promise I'd intended to keep. I've broken that promise and now I have to live with the fallout. Dixie Lark hates me, and I have to tell her that I love her. I also have to tell her a truth that might destroy us forever.
Can she love me, even if she can't forgive me?
Learning to move on . . .
Gavin Garrison broke his promise to my brother and he broke my heart in the process.I may never love anyone the way I've loved him, but at least I won't spend my life wondering "what if." We had our one night and he walked away. I'm beginning to move on, but my brother's wedding and a battle of the bands are about to throw us together again.
Our band is getting a second chance, but I don't know if I can give him one. How do you hand your heart back to the person who set it on fire once already?

 His mouth is so close, he’s so close. He seems taller or something, and even though I know the likelihood of that is ridiculous, I don’t remember ever feeling so very aware of his presence. Or maybe I just blocked it all out. But here, now, in the room with him, everything is coming back.

All of it.

Every single second we spent connected on a physical level. His mouth on me, his lips, his tongue, his body inside of mine.

“You’re good at this,” I say, barely able to get my voice to go above a whisper.

“I’ve had a lot of practice.”

I don’t know if he means with first aid, which is likely since he’s had to perform CPR on his mom more times than I can count, or seduction, which I also happen to know he’s well versed in. Either way, I am in danger of losing my grip on my ability to remain up- right.

It’s as if my brain has been doing me a favor for the past few months, allowing me to focus on being pissed at him instead of . . . this. But clearly my brain has left the building and I am completely on my own. This is dangerous.

I am weak.
I want him.
I need him. 
Screw it.
“There,” he says gently, lowering my dress back down over my thighs. 
“That might help a little but you should still—”

My mouth captures his midsentence. His lips are slightly moist and even fuller than I remembered. I tense and a dull ache hits hard

as my heart drops a few inches in preparation of being rejected. Much to my surprise, Gavin doesn’t stop me. He doesn’t reject me. He doesn’t spew some bull about my brother or our friendship or seeing anyone else or anything.

He only makes one sound—a soft, pained groan. His hands grip the skin just beneath my ass and he lifts me onto the counter. The dress is tight but I manage to part my thighs far enough to accom- modate his broad figure between them.

My fingers press into his back, urging him closer even though it’s not exactly possible. I try to catch his tongue but he’s sweeping it deeply inside, then pulling back to suck on my lips. A muffled moan escapes my mouth and slides into his.

“You taste like whiskey, Bluebird.” He chuckles lightly, then cuts off any chance I had of verbalizing a response by slipping his fingers between my legs and into the waistband of my panties.

“I’ve come a long way since strawberry ice cream.” 

                                                                                       (My Thoughts)

Wow, what an awesome conclusion to Gavin and Dixie's intense love story. Quinn did an outstanding job giving readers an amazingly beautiful ending to Gavin and Dixie's love story. Gavin and Dixie have definitely become one of my favorite book couples. Their love for each other touched my heart with so many wonderful, raw emotions. And what had my heart really emotional is the surprise character that Caisey Quinn brought into Gavin and Dixie's life and their romance. This person was a real eye opener for Dixie to finally understand the beautiful, tortured man that she loves and wants more than anything else in life. Also, an eye opener for Gavin, too.

The other thing I enjoyed was Dixie’s growth. How she finally became her own strong, independent person, free from the people that have always dictated her life and feelings, even her mood. And that includes Dallas, her older brother. Not that Dallas was an awful brother, but because of their situation, Dallas easily took on the responsibility of protector in Dixie's life. But he became too overprotective of Dixie, and she felt like she didn't have any say in her life. So yes, I loved seeing Dixie finally stand on her own two feet. Gavin also did some growing of his own, but his was more of the healing kind and being able to let go of the one person who has been holding him down.

I'm going to stop here, because like they say, less is more. And plus, I don't want to spoil Gavin and Dixie's story. But, I would like to say that I was totally blown away with the strong in depth heartfelt storyline of Gavin and Dixie's feelings for each other in this last book of Neon Dreams. Caisey Quinn never fails me with her talent as an awesome storyteller and the beautiful romance between her characters. I recommend Missing Dixie and the Neon Dreams series, which also includes Dallas' story (Loving Dallas book two) as a must read.
