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?


What a story, capturing my attention from the beginning with questions and concerns.  I wanted to know more from the very beginning.  The characters were amazing, the romance unbelievably sexy.  The two main characters of the story with backgrounds completely opposite of one another, the way they come together and bond, is every woman's fantasy.

I loved Violet (Rae) from the start, feeling her emotions all wrapped up, her personality fit her character perfectly.  Cole, 'Oh My' dreamy, sexy and utterly hot, captured my attention with his bad boy personality.  I was fascinated by him, caught up in his life story and connected with him.  There couldn't be a more charming male character than Cole Morgan.

I loved the story line, the plot and the characters.  The author took me into another time and place with her descriptions and telling of the story.  I didn't want the story to end, much less the romance to stop!  Definitely a book I would recommend and give five dandies.  If you are looking for a good romance, with amazing characters, plot, personality and love this is the book for you.
