Tobias Holmes, Toby, is making a name for himself as music manager for Aria Jordan. When a car accident ended his pro-basketball career, the music industry was another passion with which he found a connection. After Aria is chosen to be on a new reality TV show, he turns to an old friend.

Sienna Elaine Culpepper works with Mulholland, Davis, and French, but on Saturday’s she helps her mother with her French Quarter store. She feels no matter how hard she works, or how much she has accomplished, her mother will never be pleased. A bad past with a man makes her wonder if she will ever have a normal relationship again.

Toby is not looking to start any serious relationship. He only wants to focus on his new music career until he is approached by Marshall Kellerman, with Over The Edge Productions, to sign on Aria to the spotlight. Many believe Toby and Aria to be an item, but he is only her music manager. Sienna is not one to dwell on jealousy, thinking it is a wasted emotion that causes pain, but when she notices Toby with Aria, Toby can sense a bit of jealousy in her eyes. She and Toby were inseparable growing up until high school took them to separate schools. After his car accident, they more or less slipped away all together, until years later. Toby would like to know how Sienna feels toward him, but she is often hard to read. When he accepted the job with Mr. Kellerman, he had no idea he would be working with Sienna nor did she know Toby would be her new client. Can Sienna help him to believe in himself again to create a new budding relationship?

Release Me is a captivating read carrying the reader into the setting of New Orleans, as well as into the families of believable people. The in-depth cast all lend to a convincing story that made this reader feel as if she were part of a growing family. I was able to share in Sienna’s joys, and even the moments she felt downplayed when so many people chose to interfere in her life. I liked the banter she and Toby share, especially when she finds a DVD and he tries to explain it. Farrah Rochon sketches events, in New Orleans, with family and friends that this reader will not forget. With great dialogue, some twists and turns along the way, she pens nail-biting drama that unfolds beautifully.
