Boyfriend Material

This sweeping, life-affirming tearjerker from Darke tracks a love song as it makes its way around the world, touching lives and hearts as it passes from musician to musician, ultimately offering a grieving man a second chance at love. Darke makes a powerful case for the healing power of music with this vibrant romantic panorama.

The result is a hot, hilarious rom-com sure to sweep readers off their feet.
