On the surface, twenty-two year old Cole Morgan is exactly what any girl would be proud to take home to meet her parents: He’s charming, intensely handsome and goal-oriented…Only he has some secrets of his own, which include provoking bar fights and a former drug-addict of a mother slowly wasting away in a medical facility.

At barely twenty, Violet Lynn is Country Music’s hottest star, until one night of partying gets out of control. Violet ends up in jail and on TMZ. Suddenly, she’s the girl least likely to be invited anywhere. Sick of the drama and keeping secrets, she runs away from the prying eyes of the paparazzi to her grandmother’s home in Forrestville, North Carolina.

A chance meeting knocks Cole off his feet, but he doesn’t recognize Violet for who she is. In fact no one does and Violet plans to keep it that way.

Circumstances, however annoying, keep throwing Violet and Cole together. Unable to stop themselves they give into the inevitable.

But when Nashville is ready to forgive and forget, Violet is forced to choose between Cole and claiming her spot as the new and improved Princess of Country Music.

Will Violet and Cole have the courage to live for their dreams…Or their hearts?


I usually want to know everything NOW but the author did a good job of leaving you wondering for awhile what was Rae’s story and what was she hiding about the accident. I’m surprised that she went for Cole, he seems like your perpetual bad boy, but he did have a soft spot for his sister Kelly. So maybe he just didn’t make wise decisions.

I wasn’t wild about the ending because some things are left hanging…don’t know if this means there might be a second book or we are left to our own devices to figure out how the rest plays out.

We give it 4 paws and since this is supposed to be book 1 that hopefully book 2 will maybe fill in some gaps even though it will be about other characters.
