Getting Over Jesse Franklin
If you found your nineties boyband crush on Facebook, would you add him?
Years ago, Cassie loved Jesse. But he was the bass player in her favourite band and didn’t know she even existed. Fourteen years on, the band has broken up and she’s found him on Facebook, and it turns out that after finally meeting in London, he quite likes her, too. Their relationship quickly intensifies and Cassie and Jesse find themselves in a long distance relationship spanning five thousand miles. But just as she’s beginning to think all her dreams have come true, a misunderstanding tears them apart and as she tries to piece her life back together in London, Jesse is planning a way to win her back.

Two years ago Cassie Banks lived in West London, had a thriving career, and her lifelong best friend living just the other side of town. Then she met Jesse Franklin, the bass player from her favourite band, and her life turned upside down. She gave it all up in a heartbeat to be with him, moved to America and now they’re hitched. But things aren’t quite as she expected them to be, and she quickly learns that life can get pretty lonely when you’re thousands of miles away from your friends and you’re waiting for your green card.
When Franko broke up in nineteen ninety-nine, Jesse swore he’d never play in a band again, and has worked as a freelance session musician ever since. But now, Travis, his brother and former band mate, has asked him to start something new, and there’s something about it that just works.
Just as the band begins to take off, things take an unexpected turn. How will Jesse juggle life at home with an upcoming US tour? How will Cassie settle into life as an expat in California? And just who is Edit Ellström, and what does she want?
