Stay by Rihanna
This was the song that gave me the title for this book. I was driving one day and I heard the lyrics “You’re the broken one but I’m the only one that needed saving.” Immediately thought of John Boy and Melanie and it became the theme song for this book.
Just give me a reason by Pink
Another song that inspired some great scenes in this book. Especially the lyrics, “we’re not broken just bent and we’ll learn to love again.”
Ho Hey by The Lumineers
This was almost like the couples theme song for John to Melanie. In my head they belonged together. Even in The Only Exception, when I wrote these characters I somehow KNEW they belonged together.
Wont go home without you by Maroon 5
This was a song that initially didn’t mean too much until I heard it a few times. There were a few scenes in which John and Melanie go back to her apartment and these lyrics would play in my head over and over again.
I will wait by Mumford and Sons
You have to love a guy that persistently loves a girl. That’s this song and that’s John Boy for Melanie.
Length: 302 pages
Publisher: Beautifully Broken Books (October 7, 2013)
Honor student, manager at the campus coffee shop, owner of an impressive sweater collection – Melanie Wilder has it all together. Then John “John Boy” Walden strolls into her life wearing nothing more than an impish grin and all-too-revealing loin cloth.
Soon, make-out sessions replace homework, lust triumphs over work. And to further crumble her perfect world, an unexpected phone call threatens to take away everything she’s worked for.
Now, as Melanie struggles to pick up the pieces, she realizes that John may be the only one to put her life back together…unless he shatters it first.
Their differences threaten to tear them apart, unless they can make one another their only exception.
