Ever thought a dream might pass you by?
Nineteen-year old CeCe Mackenzie is determined to make her dreams come true. She heads for Nashville with not much more to her name than a guitar, a Walker Hound named Hank Junior and an old car she'd inherited from her grandma called Gertrude. But when Gertrude ends up on the side of I-40 in flames, Nashville has never seemed farther away. Help arrives in the form of two Georgia football players headed for the Nashville dream as well. When Holden Ashford and Thomas Franklin stop to offer CeCe and Hank Junior a ride, fate may just give a nod to serendipity and meant to be. Because while CeCe is chasing after her dream, she might find love as well.
New Adult Romance where "the characters are so alive you can almost hear them next to you."
The author introduces you to college-aged Cece, who is bound and determined to make a career for herself in country music. When her car essentially explodes on the side of the road, she's stranded and winds up trailing along with Holden and Thomas who also happen to be on their way to Nashville to make a go of becoming country music stars. Holden, nursing a wound from a not quite ex-girlfriend he left behind is gruff toward Cece, but soon we see the attraction between them build even as they resist it.
I loved this book. I flew through it in one day. It seemed a little short, so I'm guessing it's closer to novella length, especially since there are around 9 installments. The characters were believable and the dialogue and writing so strong. I found myself smiling and laughing at parts and when the book ended I was SO bummed!! I absolutely loved it and recommend it to anyone who enjoys romance, NA, or even YA fans. The only downside to this book at all is simply the fact that there are so many installments and so to read them all you have to shell out $20+. For those on a budget this might be a problem. Normally, I would spend the money, but right now my home is undergoing major renovations so there is no dough to buy the series. :(
