Back Cover Blurb:
The bestselling author of Heart Breaker returns with another sultry Nashville Nights novel of country hits and stolen kisses, as a one-night stand turns into the beginning of an irresistible partnership.
Shane Hart loves the ladies. Like hit records, he can never have too many. Shane swore long ago never to treat a woman the way his abusive father treated his mother, but his traumatic past has kept him from making any solid commitments—even to a fiery redhead like Avery O’Leery. Shane’s happy enough to rescue her from a tight spot, but that’s as far as their connection goes—until their unforgettable liaison has him rethinking his impulse to love ’em and leave ’em.
Avery has big plans: first, shake the dust of small-town Kentucky from her boots; second, become a bona fide songwriter; and third, keep the truth hidden about her birth father from everyone in Nashville. Nowhere on that list is she supposed to land in bed with a sexy stranger who rescues her off the street at midnight, especially if that stranger is Shane Hart. Avery’s trying not to fall for the dreamy music producer who could make or break her career. But her best-laid plans seem to be no match for a love that feels like destiny.
This is my first novel by McCarty and I found it to be a decent introduction to her writing. He descriptions allowed me to picture the tale and see the world from the eyes of her characters that she's created. The plot was much sweeter than I'd expected but also quite angst-y at times as well. The plot development was intriguing and unique.
I'll admit that I did find he characters to be a bit over the top at times, their reactions being a bit hard to swallow. It made the characters seem quite extreme and the story slightly less believable for me.
As a whole, this was a cute, sweet story. It was a fun, enjoyable read.
