“Just because your family is gone doesn’t mean that you are. Your identity is tied to who they made you into, not who they were. The way I see it, you can honor them by becoming the best possible version of who you are meant to be, or you can wither away to nothing with no one to remember you.”– Erin Hahn
Annie Mathers is America’s sweetheart and heir to a country music legacy. Clay’s label wants to land Annie, and Clay has to make it happen. Swayed by Clay’s undeniable charm and good looks, Annie and her band agree to join the tour. From the start fans want them to be more than just tour mates, and Annie and Clay can’t help but wonder if the fans are right. But if there’s one part of fame Annie wants nothing to do with, it’s a high-profile relationship. If only she could convince her heart that Clay, with his painful past and head over heels inducing tenor, isn’t worth the risk.
This book filled my country loving heart and left me swooning.
This was a very sweet romance that is budded in the face of a tragedy.
To me this was a very deep book for being a YA book. But oh my goodness was it absolutely beautiful and I enjoyed every word of it. It’s very heartwarming and will definitely put a smile on your face!
There is a lot of Johnny and June going on and it really puts into perspective how exaggerated everything is, especially at such a young age, from raw emotions, to communication and how it is not exactly the best. The secrets that we like to keep when we are young and how strong and grown up we want people to think we are.
Just like any great YA romance, there is also plenty of drama and emotion tied in as well. From the tragedy of Annie’s parents, to Clays own family tragedies and trying to cope with the feelings attached to that.
Overall the author did an amazing job handling all the drama and angst as well as providing absolutely beautiful writing and tying it all up with a perfect ending.
