Leaving behind a shadowy past marred by a drug-addicted mother, her mother's abusive drug dealer boyfriend, and the torment of a truck driver exploiter named Rick, Isla Frank is bound for the vibrant lights of New York City as a new fashion design school student with the love and support of her adopted dads.

Fate intervenes when her roommate persuades her to attend an off-Broadway audition. Little does Isla know that this single decision will alter the trajectory of her life. Caught in the crosshairs of the captivating and eccentric playwright Travis Jackson, she becomes the subject of his intense fascination. Drawn to her petite frame, the soft hues of her eyes, and her demure presence, Travis yearns to sculpt her into his next Broadway star and lover.

The enchantment of her playwright boyfriend’s affection and the whirlwind success of her breakout role in his latest theatrical masterpiece is an intoxicating spell. Bliss reigns until an ominous night shatters the facade. Amid a drunken rage, Travis's hand strikes her delicate cheek, leaving a mark not just on her skin but on their relationship. Amid apologies and forgiveness, a pattern emerges — a relentless cycle of abuse that threatens help, even though his intentions might not be as noble as they should be, considering their significant age gap.

However, an unforeseen injury sustained in the line of duty thrusts him into a realm far darker and more illicit than his father ever confronted.


Amidst the outskirts of town, Molli Sitara finds herself entangled in the gritty world of illegal and illicit activities. The allure of quick money and easy access to drugs draws her into a life of loveless transactions.

With his piercing green eyes and a tangled history, Hamilton's presence stirs up memories of their shared past, where love and passion were once shared.

"Oh my gosh, this book!! I love Dani and Tomlin. I think they are one of my new favorite love stories! Gigi came to play! This book is a quick burn with lots of spice. Dani is sassy and feisty, which I love about an FMC. This book will give you ALL the feels....angst, happy, anger, laughter, and tears. Gigi's characters are loveable and stick with you. I loved this book." Sally W., Amazon ★★★★★

"Another fantastic read from Gigi Meier, who is starting to become another Queen of Slow Burns right alongside Mariana Zapata! Told entirely from Dani’s point of view, which two bonus chapters at the end from Tomlin’s point of view, this is a deeply romantic story where she appears to fall first but he truly did and he fell harder. Slowly sweat as you wait for them to finally take the final step in the bedroom, and hang on tight as the final chapters unfold." Robyn H., Goodreads ★★★★★


"Book 1 left us desperate for more, but book 2? it gets straight into business! After some more slow burns they finally “connect” and boy is it 🌶️ 🌶️🌶️🌶️ I loved reading these two and secretly hope for a novella maybe a 5-10yr fast forward @gigimeiermedia just a suggestion 😉😉😉. 5⭐️ must read book 1 before reading this.
Dani quote: “All you've been doing is that cheesy making love stuff and sometimes a girl needs to be rammed from behind." 👏 👏 
" Kacie W., Goodreads ★★★★★

"Takahashi is book #2 in the Canon series and picks up where Tomlin left off. I really enjoyed Tomlin’s and Dani’s story. It’s very entertaining. I loved the character development of these two. They are so different, yet they have so much chemistry. The story was well written and held my attention. Well done!" Sammye, Amazon ★★★★★

I just could not get enough of it and once I started reading it I could not put it down. I recommend that you read it." Di, Goodreads ★★★★★

"This second book in the Cañon series starts where the first book "Tomlin" ends. I love the way that Gigi Meier writes and are keeping the reader to the book. It's a page turner and you just want to know what's happens on the next page and the next chapter. You will not be disappointed when read this series." Marianne W., Goodreads ★★★★★

"This was well written and definitely finished the right way. Their many ups and downs were to their benefit. They had to learn to forgive, how to love and how to move on. Hard lessons but they got it. Dani was a hard case to crack. I understand now why he did things that way." Celicia, Amazon ★★★★★

"Seriously loved this book. These two together were really electric and it was so nice to read them together. They grew so much in this book, more so Dani. It was really pleasing to see her growth especially as I felt she needed to grow up from the last book and she did. How she dealt with a majority of things in this book was a huge jump from how she was in the first book. Thank goodness. I love me a good juicy epilogue and we got this here. Now we just need a novella with a couple more years down the track with baby Tomlins running around hahaha." Michelle B., Goodreads ★★★★★


"I've loved reading about these two and their journey to their HEA,the writing style, is casual, and keeps the reader interested. There are a lot of interesting characters to meet, and maybe , if we're lucky, repeat at a later date!?" Kathy, Goodreads ★★★★

"OMG!!! 😍😍😍😍😍 I loved Dani and Tomlin since the beginning! The tension between these two is atomic💣 level tension. In this thrilling second book, you get to ride another rollercoaster 🎢 of emotions. I was scared, worried, angry, LOLing, happy and even twitterpated at times. If you haven't already I highly recommend reading The Canon City Series! Tomlin is easily my favorite book boyfriend now!!🥰🥵" Candace, Amazon ★★★★

"This duet did such a good job of showing more than just the love and chemistry it showed the ins and outs of relationships and how trauma affects it. The plot was really developed and because of that, I did want more about them and their lives after the big stuff after the first I love you.   I know that in life we don't always get that but because the story is so developed a huge part of me wished this was a triology the 3rd book showing what happens with the garage,  Olympics, and their lives as life partners." Katelyn B., Amazon ★★★★

"**Dreamily Sighs** Tomlin...This book. I love it. Tomlin's personality is adorable, at time I just want to squish his cheeks. Dani. I like Dani. She's weird and crass and I love it. Normally characters like this seem over-the-top but her personality blends really well into the story. I love how the story wasn't just linear and predictable. It kept me on my toes and kept my interested. I started it last night and finished it this morning so that says a lot about it. I highly HIGHLY recommend this book." Shelly U., Amazon ★★★★★


"Oh my, I loved this book! It’s been a hot minute since I found myself invested in a characters story and begging for the slow burn to move faster, but I flat out yelled at Dani and Tomlin in this book. Dani’s character- she’s crazy independent, mouthy, with street smarts for days, but she’s also a little broken from her fathers death. She has a vulnerability to her that she hides beneath her sailors mouth and her double D’s. Tomlin- the two bonus scenes from his POV at the end gave me the greatest insight to his character because he seems so indecisive throughout, like he’s afraid of making a commitment. He’s rich, strong, and smart, but he’s afraid of being hurt. The supporting characters!!!! Anna, Isla, Hamilton, Eli, Lars. I LOVE them. I feel like they are Dani’s found family and I can’t wait to see more of them in the second book. 10/10 would recommend!" Robyne H., Amazon ★★★★★

"Fantastic! This book! This story is incredible! Gigi knows how to write characters that are the underdogs of their story, easy to love, and become a Phoenix rising from the ashes. The story of Dani and Tomlin is fantastic and so endearing. I love that Dani is written as a sassy and salty character with a soft side. Tomlin is pretentious and arrogant with his own demons." Sally., Amazon ★★★★★


"I absolutely loved this book. For me, It is their constant banter that I find absolutely hilarious. The sexual tension is just their hanging out in the open for everyone to see but them. There are also some deeper more heartfelt moments when they discuss their past traumas, that almost had me in tears. I love Dani's feisty nature. She never backs down from a fight. Tomlin is laid back but is willing to challenge Dani in every confrontation. Quick easy read. I definitely recommend this book. Book #2 release date 4.24.23." Candace N., Amazon ★★★★★

"I really liked reading this book. So much that I already pre-ordered pt 2. She had a lot of sass where he was calm and well mannered. Great combination fora couple. They actually balanced each other out. They learned from each other. She learned to calm down and not take everything as a criticism. He learned to open up. Their paths met for a reason. I can't wait to read more about them." Celicia., Amazon ★★★★★

"This is an emotional enemies-to-lovers story. I felt like Dani was the main character rather than Tomlin. I loved them both. She has a fiery attitude and he’s hot! I loved this book and highly recommend it." Sammye., Amazon ★★★★★

"I absolutely loved this book. It was gifted by the author and I am seriously going to have to get it in print too. The girl Dani has so trauma she is working through then there is Tomlin who is part of the reason for her stuff. This is one of those push and pull romances and I love that. This was seriously a great book." Angie R., Goodreads ★★★★★


"I LOVED this book. Thank you again GiGi for letting me discover my new favorite romance! I am so excited for the next release and best believe I'll get the sequel on the day of the release no matter the cost. I need to know how their story progresses." Sarah., Goodreads ★★★★★

"The rich, fully fleshed out characters jump off the pages and into your imagination. Tomlin is full of surprises, it is an unexpected, weird but very addicting story." Di., Goodreads ★★★★★

"The characters are so dynamic and, even though Dani is a difficult person to love, she grew on me. I love her sailor mouth and her willingness to fight for the weak and downtrodden, for anyone who can't fight for themselves. Tomlin, on the other hand, I adored from the start. Excellent writing and great story." Emily., Goodreads ★★★★★

"4.5⭐️ So many awesome characters, our Hero and Heroine, having been through a lot in their young lives, and more keeps getting thrown at them! Most of the side characters are just awesome, and some of them really need a story of their own. I loved the banter that they threw at each other, right from the word go. The chemistry was there, they just denied it all the way through!" Kathy, Ahmazing Book Fairy ★★★★★

"4.5⭐️ I really wanted to give it 5 star but the sexual tension was soo close to being acted on but wasn’t and left ME frustrated 🤣🤣 bring on book2!!!" Kacie W., Goodreads ★★★★

"Gigi Meier is a wonderfully talented author. I love her writing style, I love her characters and I love her plot development. Dani is a very strong character, the perfect protagonist. She is flawed and damn I felt her pain. When Meier writes a character, you feel like you really know them, inside and out. Tomlin was another interesting character, but so were the other minor characters; Eli, Hamilton, Isla, I am so invested that I want to learn more about them all." Cathryn, Goodreads ★★★★

"The ending of this book had me so on edge and I cannot wait for book two to see the continuation of what happens. I loved the bickering, attitude and humor between these two. It all worked so well. There is so much sexual tension throughout this book." Kimmy, Goodreads ★★★★

"Tomlin was a wonderful first installment to this duet. It is an opposites attract romance about Tomlin, a rich, successful, professional athlete, and Dani, a sailor-mouthed car restorationist. They're polar opposites with shared emotional traumas. As different as they are, like calls to like, and pain calls to pain." My Romance Bookclub, Goodreads ★★★★

"This is my 2nd read from Gigi Meier, and I'm thrilled I decided to read this one. Gigi does an excellent job of creating a world for her readers. Dani's character reminded me so much of myself; loud-mouthed, tells how it is, and swears throughout every other word. I really liked her character. The banter between the two was great, and the sexual tension was aching. I am definitely ready for book two!" Jane., BookFlutter, Goodreads ★★★★

"Dani and Tomlin had a lot of really great banter back and forth between then and they kept denying their feelings for each other , which did portray a realistic relationship and I really enjoyed reading that story line. I found myself sucked in and wanting to know more about Dani and Tomlin and the rest of the great supporting characters. This is the first book of a series. Definitely would recommend." Sherri, Goodreads ★★★★

"Thoroughly enjoyed this story and the cover…. wow….Straight off the bat the chemistry between Tomlin and Dani was scorching hot.  Very easy to read story. Great secondary characters which I hope are in the next book.." Michelle B., Goodreads ★★★★
