What it’s about?
Enjoyable romance set in Nashville.
Jared ‘Jed’ Marshall is the newest star of country rock. His bad-boy reputation and country rock god status mean women are throwing themselves at him. About to embark on a new tour he’s looking for a support act that he’s not going to fall out with.
Honor Blackwood hasn’t song on stage for 10 years. A teen star with the world at her feet, a terrible incident has changed her life and ended her career.
Jed offers Honor an amazing opportunity bit is she brave enough to take it? Is she ready for everything Nashville offers and the pressures that it brings.
What I think?
Romance and music combine to create the Nashville atmosphere. Jed and Honor’s relationship has the usual romance high and lows, and it’s well done. They really connect through music and it is when writing together that chemistry between them is strongest.
Jed’s extreme personality and the arguments he gets into felt a bit too extreme for me. And Honor makes some judgements that seem out of character as the tension reaches its climax.
But you don’t read romance for realism. This is a great escapist book with a happy ending perfect for beach reading. I loved the Nashville TV show and this would not be out of place as a storyline.
This is the first of book by Mandy Baggot that I’ve read and I will definitely keep an eye out for more. Thank you Netgalley for the advanced copy in return for an honest review.
