Annie Mathers is Country music royalty. Her parents were Cora and Robbie Mathers–the most tragic couple in country music history. Annie has the talent of both of her parents and the drive to avoid their demons.
Jefferson “Clay” Coolidge is an orphan who recently lost his brother in the war; he’s also Country music’s favorite bad boy.
When their record label shoves Clay and Annie on tour together, sparks fly, and both singers realize that they have to face their own inner demons before they can accept the love in front of them.
First of all, I have a hard time reading romance novels sometimes—especially YA romance novels because I feel that they are usually too predictable. I picked this book up only because I’d been binging a lot of horror and thrillers lately, and I thought I would like to read something light an happy.
This book is light and happy. That said, it is also predictable.
The protagonists are likable—Clay Jefferson Coolidge and Annie Mathers have definite chemistry from the outset. Their personal histories are traumatic enough to make them compelling (if not relatable), and it gives them a good reason to take over 200 pages to finally get together.
The truth is, there is nothing wrong with this book, it just wasn’t for me. If you want a cute story about teenage country music singers falling in love, this is for you. Also, I do appreciate the playlist I’ve compiled from the songs in this book.
