As "Love Me Tender" plays in the background, Debbie Carmichael determines to salvage her family's restaurant, Sweet Sal's Soda Shoppe, after her father's health fails. Teen heartthrob Bobby Conrad agrees to perform at a fundraiser concert. But just two weeks before the highly publicized event, Bobby backs out of the benefit. Enter Johnny Hartman, a young, unknown singer. Debbie soon realizes the twists and turns leading up to the concert have been divinely orchestrated. And it isn't dreamy Bobby Conrad who has stolen her heart - but the tender Johnny Hartman.

American Band Stand! Elvis Presley! Bobby Socks!
Love me Tender is a fun story for those who would like to reminisce about the past. The fun part of this story is that at the beginning of each chapter we get some fun bits of info about the 50s. Just before we see the story unfold in each chapter, an announcement is made in the Heart Throb Magazine telling about the movie stars from Hollywood along with their love affairs, divorces and marriages. I even got to hear about the clothes and hair trend of the era, while gas prices were 50 cents a gallon. Each announcement kept me up to date as I followed the fun story about a young man who makes it big as a star. American Band Stand! Elvis Presley! Bobby Socks!
