Slow-burn | Small-town | Country Music
What's a girl to do after burning all of her no-good, cheating boyfriend's belongings? Throw a dart at a map and start over in a new town.
I may be new to the small town of Everton, but I'm well aware that I now share a zip code with a celebrity. You'd have to be living under a rock to not know, Knox Bentley, one of country music's biggest stars.
When Knox wanders into my bar-- careful brown eyes and broody attitude--I can't tear my gaze away. A cheating scandal fresh on his heels is just one reason I should stay far, far away, but the closer we get, the more I realize he's not at all what I imagined.
But being a famous musician comes with unwanted attention...the kind that tears people apart, and now it's becoming too painful to stay by his side.
They say love is a choice, but so is leaving...

SMALL TOWN. MUSICIAN (COUNTRY STAR) ROMANCE
Fabiola Francisco is a new to me author and I was really looking forward to reading this book. For the most part, I found it to be very enjoyable. I love the small town vibes, the sense of family, and the fact that our hero is a country music star. However, I didn’t feel a deep connection with either character (hence, the 3.5 stars). I think the reason for this is that we never really got a lot of back story to either one of their lives. We do learn that the hero (Knox) is going through a tough time because of divorce and some scandals within his music career, but I never really FELT the hard time that he was having. I guess with romances I need to KNOW ALL THE THINGS and FEEL ALL THE THINGS but I didn’t quite get either through this story. Not only that, the heroine (who comes off as super sweet and kind) never gave us any information into her life. When she’s with a hero that comes with a lot of baggage I feel like we need to know more about her in order to balence out the story and this didn’t happen. It felt sort of superficial, you know?
Other than these things, I did find the idea of the story to be a good one even though it didn’t quite play out as I would have liked. I do plan to read the next one in the series though as I always like to read at least 2 or 3 books by an author to get a feel for their work and am really excited about it.
If you enjoy sweet, small town romances with minor sex scenes and country music stars then I would recommend giving this book a try. It is free with kindle unlimited (which is the perfect program for those who are trying out new authors).
