Product Description

Fifteen Years…

For fifteen years, Cade Anderson, drummer for the world-famous rock band 7’s Mistress, has been in love with his best friend, the band’s lead singer. Even though it’s been years since they were lovers, Cade still wants the man. When his best friend falls in love with someone else, life as Cade knows it is over. The band breaks up and Cade has to figure out how to move on.

Ten Years…

For ten years, Mal Wilson has hidden who he really is from the small-minded people of Arlo, Kentucky. The family farm is dwindling down to nothing, and the bar he owns is draining him dry. When it looks like he’s going to lose both, Mal has to figure out where to go from here.

Three Months…

For three months, Cade has been drinking and f*cking his way across the country, trying to forget about his former friend and lover. When he finds himself at a redneck joint in the middle of nowhere, he is drawn to the handsome roughneck tending bar. Something in the man stirs Cade for the first time in years.

One Night…

When Mal ends up in a hotel room with the handsome blond man who sat in his bar for hours, the man asks for one night together. When Mal wakes up, he knows that one night will never be enough, but it has to be.

Two men…

One musician, rich and famous, out and proud of his sexuality. One cowboy, poor as the dirt under his boots, hiding who he is from the world. It’ll never work. Or will it?

Release Me is a love story between a hard rockin' drummer and a hard workin' cowboy.

*Release Me, Book 2 from The Music Within series by Faith Gibson is a can’t but down read. Release Me can be read as a standalone but you understand more of the angst and character bonds if you read Deliver Me first. I was given this for a fair review.
Kincade “Cade” Anderson was the drummer and trouble maker in the rock band 7’s Mistress. 7’s Mistress is no more; Cade lost his friends and his way.
Malcolm “Mal” Wilson is dirt poor bar owner and farmer in the closet so deep due to nearly being killed for his choices. He saves this drunken stranger at his bar one night. Neither is sure they want to share their secrets, but life can bring the unexpected just when you need it.
Cade explains to Mal-- “I remember being sixteen. I thought I was grown back then, too. Now I know I wasn’t. I’m still learning s*** about life, about me. Everyday I learn something new, and I know I have a lot more to learn.”
Release Me is a journey of discovery for two men who just happen to cross paths, as it turns out, at the perfect time. The twist and angst in Release Me are wonderfully written; from the two very different life choices and experiences of the main characters and secondary character’s too. Again the secondary Characters are great and fun to get to know. I did not think it was possible to like Cade’s story after his high jinxes and trouble making in Deliver Me, but boy has Faith Gibson made a Cade fan out of me. I have a major Release Me book hangover and can not wait for the next story in this wonderful series.
Thanks Faith Gibson & Good Writing

5.0 out of 5 stars An endearing love story worth reading more than once! 14 May 2016
By Sara - Published on

Every once in a while you’re fortunate to come across a book that embeds itself in your soul. Release Me is one of those books. It captivated me from cover to cover and I was disappointed when the book came to an end – I already miss them! I felt so drawn to Mal and Cade, but I easily became engrossed in the secondary characters, too, because they added so much depth to the well-constructed plot.

First off, not having read Deliver Me, the first book, I didn’t know the back story about Cade, Tag and Eric, and to be honest, I’m ok with that and would almost at this point NOT want to have a different perception of Cade. I loved him and all his layers, his generosity as he opened himself up to knowing Mal, and evolving maturity as he reflected on his former behavior and life before meeting Mal. Gibson makes it easy to relate to Cade as he trudged through the emotions of moving on from the end of his 15-year friendship and relationship with Tag, meeting and falling in true love with Mal, and then facing the possibility of losing that relationship when his efforts to support Mal don’t turn out exactly as he intended – even the best kept secrets administered with the best of intentions usually backfire. Malcolm is a broken man who has a horrific past to move beyond – his father attempted to kill him and his mother after learning he was gay when he was a teenager. He’s insecure, humble and guilt-ridden, and doesn’t believe he’s worth loving. Since that time, Mal has worked himself to the bone to provide for his mother and keep the family farm in operation at the expense of his happiness and freedom; he’s poor and has had to sell the majority of the family’s acreage to pay off medical debts incurred because of his father’s wrath.

Cade and Mal have chemistry on every level. Cade doesn’t want to push Mal too hard, too fast, and Mal is intimidated by Cade’s money and fame. As their friendship and relationship evolves, Cade is exposed to the true meaning of family by spending time on the farm with Mal, Suzette and Walt, and Mal eventually realizes through Cade’s actions once he’s on tour that true love transcends everything. The emotions churning in Mal tugged at my heartstrings, and it was excruciating to find Cade hurting at the possibility that their relationship would end. Cade’s text “love letters” to Mal, especially one of his last ones featuring a video of the ocean and then focusing on his face when he professed that he still loved him, was heart wrenching. One of my favorite things had to be their nicknames for one another, Rock Star and Cowboy. Mal’s and Cade’s love and affection for one another was almost palpable. The thing that clicks in this story, though, is the natural ease at which their relationship develops on all levels – physical, friendship, and romantic. The HEA in the epilogue made me smile. But I still want to know…do Bryan and Andy end up hooking up (hoping for a future story about them!)?

Kudos to Faith Gibson for creating such an endearing love story. This one is worth reading more than once.

5.0 out of 5 stars Faith writes with such humanity, you can relate, and I LOVED every word 30 April 2016
By Loves to Read Romance - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I confess, I hadn't read Deliver Me before reading the beta of Release Me (I did indeed purchase the book - I support indie authors, and I'll be reading this book again!). However, I found it easy enough to follow the plot (having read Deliver Me now, you *don't* have to read it first to be able to understand what happened in the past in Release Me.)
I don't need to provide a synopsis -- Faith does a fantastic job of that on her own. I'll simply tell you that I fell in love with Cade's redemption of himself, crushed on Mal immediately for being the sweet country gentleman who adores his momma, felt the supporting characters did a fantastic job of showing you who the main characters are (our friends do that for us), and felt, by the end of the book, I knew these people.
Faith writes people -- her characters are so dynamic, so real, you *know* them at the end of the book. I feel like I could drive up the highway from Nashville straight to the farm and sit on the porch with Suzette (Mal's momma), while listening to Cade play the piano, and watch the girls play in the yard. (You'll understand when you reach the end of the book. You must buy this book - please go one-click.) Any author who writes people that well is an author I automatically read. I read everything Faith writes. Her other series - The Stone Society series - is the only paranormal series I read, and I sit patiently impatient for the next book immediately after reading the last word of the latest release. And while the characters aren't all technically "human", they are. She just can't not write them that way (except the bad guys.) Her writing is really special.
You'll fall in love with Cade, Mal, Suzette, Walt, Andy, Bryan, the girls, and the entire book. You won't be able to stop it. It's just that good.
(And HOT! Be careful. It's very hot.)
5.0 out of 5 stars You can find love in the most unlikeliest of places 13 March 2017

Although this can be read as a standalone, I highly recommend reading Deliver Me first because then you'll understand the surprise I felt at Cade's story.

Cade has been in love with his best friend and lead singer of the former band 7's Mistress Taggart Lee for 15 years. He knew his love was one-sided yet he held onto hope, until Tag found the man he wants to spend the rest of his life with and it wasn't Cade. Hurt, grieving, upset, and needing time to recoup Cade goes out on his own to drown his sorrows. One night he happens to go to a podunk bar in an equally small-minded podunk town. From that moment on his life changed forever. It was supposed to be one night with the hot bartender but one taste and Cade needs more. Malcolm is gay in a small minded town in the bible belt so he stays in the closet, especially after a horrific event years prior but he can't stop ogling the hot man drinking himself into a stupor at his bar. Mal is a down on his luck rancher about to lose everything when he meets Cade. Although he fights his need for Cade for a while he realizes he can't live without him.

In this rockstar meets small town country boy romance, two men overcome obstacles and teach us that you can find love in the most unlikeliest of places.
5.0 out of 5 stars Best book I've read in a while! Sexy, full of hope! 1 June 2016
By Lilly Darkangel - Published on

I LOVED this book. I couldn't put this book down. What was a plan to read it before bed turned into me staying up for most of the night and well into the day reading this. Faith has done it again with her writing and created a captivating story that pulls you in and makes it hard to let you go.

With this book, we see a side of Cade we didn't get to see in book 1, so it was nice to delve more into the drummer and understand who he is and why he is the way he is. We meet his parents and learn about how he grew up, but also get to learn about his TRUE feelings to Tag. When you have two characters that are just so different, it's hard to see how things can turn out right for them, but it did for Mal and Cade and it was just such a beautiful ending to an amazing tale.

Mal made a point of telling Cade that if you don't hope for what you can't have, then you're never let down. But Cade pushes past the walls Mal built to protect himself and proved that if you don't hope, there's nothing to fight for, and is that really living?

I cannot wait to see what else Faith has in store and look forward to reading more of her work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh my... A Rockstar and a Cowboy... Yum! 3 May 2016
By Nikki k - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is book 2 in the Music Within Me Series and I’ve got to say I love this book. Faith Gibson’s writing and story telling only gets better with each book.
When we left Cade in Deliver Me he seemed broken and unredeemable. In Release Me, we learn that is far from the truth.
Cades story begins three months after the break up of the Band 7’s Mistress and Cade finds himself a drummer without a band. On a chance trip to a honky-tonk in BFE, Kentucky — Cade meets the sexy bar keeper Mal.
Mal has no idea the man he’s been serving drinks to all night is a world famous (even infamous) drummer. He simply sees a man in need of kindness.
As the story unfolds Cade learns of the trials Mal and his family have faced and realizes this is a man worth knowing. He uses every tool on his kit to give Mal a helping hand, from behind the scenes. When the two become more than friends the fear of Cades anonymous generosity lingers.
In the end will their attraction for one another surpass their differences? Does Mal learn to accept Cades deception? Can Cade allow himself the future he wants with Mal? These are all questions to be answered within the pages of this stellar read.
Once again, Author Faith Gibson delivers a love story that transcends labels. The theory Love Is Love exists in this book. Every emotion was extracted from me as I turned page to page and chapter to chapter. I defy anyone to not shed a tear, get tingly, yell at the pages or grab a fan to cool off as you read this tale of love with no end.
I happily give this 5 Stars and urge all lovers of romance and good writing to one-click Release Me today.
