Annie Mathers is
America’s sweetheart and heir to a country music legacy full of all the
things her Gran warned her about. Superstar Clay Coolidge is most
definitely going to end up one of those things.
unfortunately for Clay, if he can’t convince Annie to join his summer
tour, his music label is going to drop him. That’s what happens when
your bad boy image turns into bad boy reality. Annie has been avoiding
the spotlight after her parents’ tragic death, except on her
skyrocketing YouTube channel. Clay’s label wants to land Annie, and Clay
has to make it happen.
Swayed by Clay’s undeniable charm and
good looks, Annie and her band agree to join the tour. From the start
fans want them to be more than just tour mates, and Annie and Clay can’t
help but wonder if the fans are right. But if there’s one part of fame
Annie wants nothing to do with, it’s a high-profile relationship. She
had a front row seat to her parents’ volatile marriage and isn’t
interested in repeating history. If only she could convince her heart
that Clay, with his painful past and head over heels inducing tenor,
isn’t worth the risk.
Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review. No payments made between me and the publisher.
The first time I saw this book on NetGalley, I didn’t expect too much, I might be disappointed but then as I continue reading, I slowly got hooked. Then, I saw a friend’s comment via Twitter that he enjoyed reading this book a lot. I was like, “Hey! Me too!” This book put me in a good mood because of all the music mentioned. There were times that I do search the song on my Spotify just to add more feelings on what I am reading. One more thing that adds up to why I liked this book is that, they’re all talking about Country songs! I do love this genre!!! This one is on my top three genres. There’s something in Country songs that is relaxing and fun to listen to.
I also love the concept of the book. Concert tours? I always wanted to watch a concert that would feature a country icon (one day hopefully). Anyway, I loved how things evolved here. You’ll know more things about Clay and Annie. I loved their up and down relationship and self discovery. It reflects the real things that is happening during concert tours and the young fame.I liked Clay, in my head he’s like Luke Bryan, handsome and all. Annie is like Taylor Swift because of how her hair was described here. These two characters have a very deep background that I don’t want to spoil in this review. Both characters have issues and they showed how they handled it in their own ways. Both of them wants to escape from the past. Both characters grew as two different people but what I’m sure of they became more interesting at the end of this book.
I listed some of the songs and I listened to it while on my way to work or home while reading the book on my Kindle App. What I would like to do some other time is that, I’ll review the book again and make a playlist to share with you all. I could say that I enjoyed reading this book a lot. Took me a long time to finish due to work stuff (apologies!!!) imagine… they even get to CMA! I was like.. wow.. just wow.. I loved every part of it. And it makes me fall in love to Country more.
I hope other readers will enjoy the book as much as I do. Also, I am looking forward to read other books from Erin Hahn. I liked how she writes, no dull time though. I just continue reading and I found myself that the book is almost over. It was simple and fun to read.
PS. While writing this review, I am listening to country songs. It feels appropriate.
