Made in Nashville

If you are a fan of country music, Nashville or just hot guitar players, then Made in Nashville is perfect for you!  Check out the blurb:

Synopsis:
An on-stage attack left Honor Blackwood with more scars than just the one on her face. It’s been ten years since she left her spot as Nashville’s brightest country music star. Is now the time to return? And is she brave enough to do it?

Country rebel and rock star, Jared ‘Jed’ Marshall is hot property on the Tennessee music scene in more ways than one. He’s wild, he’s sexy and everybody wants a piece of him. But when he sets his sights on Honor, is it pure attraction or just distraction on his mind?

Honor’s record label sign the ex-boyfriend that dumped her and suddenly going back to her old life is harder than she thought. Can she get a new contract? Will she get to perform at the Marlon Festival? Or will Dan Steele destroy everything?

When a secret from the past becomes public knowledge it’s no longer just about the music. Are all the people in her life lying to her to get what they want? And who is really behind the anonymous gifts she keeps getting sent?

Join the country scene to find out!

I have been a fan of Mandy Baggot for a couple of years and have many of her books on my Kindle just waiting to be read.  After reading the synopsis for Made in Nashville, it was quickly pushed to the head of the list.  I was hooked after the first chapter and had a hard time putting it down when life seemed to get in the way.  It's okay to forget to feed your kids, right?? Just kidding!(maybe...) As I read Made in Nashville I felt as if I was watching a really good television drama and the visions were perfect in my mind.  While I'm a more traditional country music fan, I found myself head over heels for Jed Marshall.  He's a wild alpha male who loves his family and a true southern gentleman with a few rough edges.  Honor, a quiet, more conservative country music artist, was a perfect balance for this bad boy.  Their relationship was hot and sweet from the beginning and it only grew as the story progressed.  The angst was light, their relationship was mature, and their struggles were real.  I felt Honor's transformation was quick, but it worked well in the story.  My only complaint is that the name Vince Gill was a little over used.  It was funny in the beginning, but the joke went a little stale.  Steamy-ness is hot, with one very tasteful scene.

  1. Thank you for this great review! Sorry about good ol' Vince! I did a competition where people had to guess how many times he was mentioned in the book. Maybe I'll do another one and get some more mileage out of it! Everyone is fighting over Jed!
