Billy tried to live his life for everyone else. Only after almost committing suicide did he learn he could only live for himself. That meant heading for Nashville, with hopes of having his dream. But does that include Ian or will Billy have to choose?

Final Encore is a great read that will be sure to bring author Scotty Cade many fans. The story is set in the music world of Nashville, yet, the music aspect of the story does not drown out the romance between Billy and Ian. Both these characters are easy to fall in love with. The men have suffered personally and the issues they faced have strongly colored their lives. The difference, however, is how the men have dealt with the issues. While Billy has tried to learn from the events in his past, Ian decided to hide from them. Unfortunately, this ends up causing problems in their relationship. While the sexual chemistry between the two men is strong, the author was also able to portray the non-sexual aspects, just as well. The love and care the two show each other throughout the story is just one of the things I loved about this story. There are several secondary characters that help flesh out this story and eventually help bring the story to a proper conclusion.
