Now is not the time for Carmen to fall in love. And Jeremy is hands-down the wrong guy for her to fall for.

About the Author
Jessica Martinez was born to two music lovers in Calgary, Canada. When she was just three years old, they put a violin under her chin. Miraculously, it stuck. She went on to play across Canada and the United States, perform as a soloist with professional symphonies, and travel the world over for music. Jessica studied English at Brigham Young University, and now lives in Florida with her husband and two children. Her days are spent writing, running, and teaching her children to be music lovers too. She loves strawberries and crossword puzzles. She hates the last bite of dessert and having to apply sunscreen several times a day. Her greatest hope is that someday her five siblings will quit harassing her about ruining their childhoods with her violin-ing. Virtuosity is her first novel.
