Jonte Williamson has a dream: become Nashville’s next big star. Finding herself unexpectedly homeless hot off the plane wasn’t part of her grand plan.
Cash Bellini is a simple man: he loves his twin sister, Dolly, hates country music, and stays far away from anything more complicated than that.
When Jonte stumbles into Cash’s bar, helping out the homeless country music wannabe is the last thing on his agenda. Pity someone forgot to send the memo to his too-big heart and meddling twin. Throw in a pair of baby blue cowboy boots, a pool table and a splash of tequila, and these two are set to ignite in a hot sexy mess! Will either of their hearts survive the tug-o-war between what they want and what they need?
This was yet another book from Netgalley that I’ve had for ages, and the time has arrived 😀 !
I wasn’t quite sure what to expect in the beginning, but I ended up enjoying this book more than I thought I would initially. The writing wasn’t totally my cup of tea, as the book is told in the third person, and even though it is told through dual POV, I wasn’t always sure which POV I was actually reading at some points.
I liked Jonte and Cash as characters, there was depth to both of them, and they did have chemistry. There’s also some great character growth and some great friendships within this book.
My main issues were the plot and the pacing. I liked the romance in the book, and the musical element of the plot. But the main conflict happens a bit early, and it takes a long time to get through it. More than anything, I really hated those last 15% of the book is Cash trying and failing to solve the problem, especially because his attempts were so dumb! That really threw me off, because these characters were not having a conversation about what plagued them, and that’s what they truly needed.
The book also dragged a lot in the beginning and then again at the last portion, so the pace was weird, unfortunately.
Overall, it was an enjoyable read, and it still made me want to pick up the following book, to see where these characters are 🙂 .
