Goodreads Synopsis: Annie Mathers is America’s sweetheart and heir to a country music legacy full of all the things her Gran warned her about. Superstar Clay Coolidge is most definitely going to end up one of those things.
But unfortunately for Clay, if he can’t convince Annie to join his summer tour, his music label is going to drop him. That’s what happens when your bad boy image turns into bad boy reality. Annie has been avoiding the spotlight after her parents’ tragic death, except on her skyrocketing YouTube channel. 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. She had a front row seat to her parents’ volatile marriage and isn’t interested in repeating history. If only she could convince her heart that Clay, with his painful past and head over heels inducing tenor, isn’t worth the risk.
First of all, anything you say is in the vein of Emory Lord...I'm gonna read it. I haven't seen A Star is Born, so I don't know if it's like that at all, but I first saw this book compared to Open Road Summer and here we are.
I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I pretty much loved Annie instantly. I don't often love characters right away, but Annie is quirky and smart and talented and I loved her. Annie has also had a not-so-easy life, so you feel for her.
Clay. Well. You can tell Clay needs help. He's a jerk, but it's all an act. He needs help. Love. Someone to set him straight.
The chemistry between Clay and Annie is instant and that's just fine with me. I loved their interactions and how they were constantly challenging each other. The descriptions of them singing together made you feel like you were out in the crowd watching it all go down. Erin did an great job making us all feel like we were there.
I loved pretty much everything about them. It wasn't too fast or slow. It all kind of felt just right. The way they shared things with each other that no one else knew let you know their true feelings and it was so sweet and innocent.
Even the drama and the ending was a perfect way to sum it all up. I'm definitely looking forward to more from this author!
