An up and comer trying to make a name for herself...
KYLIE never expected to be stuck on a tour bus with a pampered princess and her boyfriend’s ex.
A troubled artist struggling to hold onto his career...
TRACE thought he was finally getting to do things his way. Until the label added co-headliner Gretchen Gibson, the only person in country music with more issues than him, to his No Apologies tour.
Surrounded by tabloid rumors and people they can't trust, Kylie and Trace need each other more than ever. But the choices they make will change everything.
Because chasing your dreams and following your heart don’t always lead you to the same place…
Ok we pick up with Kylie and Trace right where we left them in “Girl with Guitar”. They are exploring new territory for both of them… a relationship. A kinda sorta secret relationship. See they are both about to go on separate tours and neither wants the media attention of going public. Might I add it’s a HOT relationship… I mean the prologue alone… my goodness *fans self*. Needless to say both of them are apprehensive. They just found solid ground together and now they are going to be apart for weeks and to make it worse Trace is forced to tour with the hot mess that is Gretchen Gibson. Picture Shania Twain on crack … she is a drunk… a mean drunk and a ticking time bomb! How is Trace supposed to keep her in line and keep a hold on his own sobriety at the same time? Couple that with the fact that he and “Gretch” use to be a little more than friends and Kylie’s insecurities start running wild. Who can blame her? Trace was teetering on a slippery slope before the devil was added to his tour. Then there are Kylie’s tour-mates. The pampered and neglected Lily & the just plain bitchy Mia. You guys remember Mia from “Girl with Guitar” right? Let’s just say Kylie isn’t her favorite person and she has no intention of pretending otherwise.
I think Caisey Quinn nailed it here. This book seems like a perfect representation of the challenges celebrity couples must face. It seems like everything is against Kylie and Trace from the start and in this day of iPhones & social media any situation can be skewed to look like something all together different. It would take a thick skin and a lot of trust to make it through that and let’s face it Kylie and Trace don’t have either of those.
Let’s talk about Trace for a minute. He really grew for me in this book. In “Girl with Guitar” he was just a spoiled, bratty superstar who was drinking his talent away and throwing his career down the toilet… but here we get to see how he loves Kylie and tries with all his might to be deserving of her. I love the way he loves her and I love the way supports her and her career. We also get to see that his problems go beyond being a hard partying jerk… he really struggles with his addiction. He fights it and it’s just too big for him and it breaks our heart.
Kylie is a fighter too. I love the “feel first think later” personality that she has. It may get her into trouble but it’s honest and I think that’s refreshing in a rising star. I hope she never changes. I hope her journey with Trace and stardom doesn’t jade her. She is perfect the way she is. Do I want her to lose everything because she wears her heart on her sleeve… No! Do I want her dreams to come true… Yes! BUT Do I want her to believe that your career is the most important thing in life and everything and everybody should come second… HELL NO! ***People are always more important and there is nothing wrong with having a heart… even a broken one!!!***
I can not wait for the next book in this series. I can’t wait to see where these characters go and how they grow from here. I CAN’T WAIT! Did you hear that Caisey???? ;)
