Hair stylist Lindsey Ballard hates answering questions about her family’s country music roots in Nashville. She’s been avoiding music producer, Myles Emery, at all costs, who’s trying to write a book on her famous relative. But he can’t get to her today. It’s her wedding day. Or so she thought…
When Lindsey suddenly needs to call off the ceremony to Atlanta’s popular mayoral candidate, she makes her getaway with the persuasive producer, all the while trying to ignore the chemistry between them that had never existed with her ex.
Myles Emery has his own reasons for needing the truth about a country music legend–secrets the Ballard family keeps closely guarded. But when he happens to catch Lindsey running out on her wedding, he knows his luck is about to change. Too bad Myles wants Lindsey on first sight and the attraction is making it complicated to stay on task. “Uncovering her secrets” begins to take on a whole new, delectable meaning…
This was a fun, light hearted story, with family drama, lots of relationships ending, and very much dated to today's world with references and the use of the social media and internet news.
At the beginning of the story, you can actually feel the panic of the breathless bride-not-to-be. The runaway part was heartfelt, and humorous. There's an obvious physical attraction between Lindsey and Myles, they are hot for each other, and the love scenes are burning the pages. But I didn't really feel any other connection between them, and even the ending left lots of things open between them.
The drama in Lindey's family was painful, the mother's constant rejection, and the problems between the sisters seemed to be carried a bit too long time.
Overall the story was fun read on a sunny day in the park, entertaining and lively
