Made in Nashville by Mandy Baggot
Genre: Adult (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: February 6, 2014
Publisher: Harper Impulse

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!


Made is Nashville is the first book that I've read by Mandy Baggot, and it made me curious about her other books. Honor had something very traumatic happen to her on stage, and this caused her to leave the music scene and all but hide from the world. Then Jared "Jed", the hot new country superstar, walks into her life and tries to pull her out of hiding. The story flowed nicely. The characters had chemistry and personality, making this a hard book to put down. I really enjoyed Jed's character. He was there for Honor. He supported her, had endless patience, and protected her. What more could a girl ask for, right? I liked Honor too. She has a lot to overcome, and Jed plays a big part in her return to humanity, but her reaction to some breaking news about him disappointed me quite a bit. After everything he did for her, she really dropped the ball when it came to returning the favor. Jed deserved so much better. It would be hard for me to get over that. Does he get over it? You'll have to read to find out!

The story was very entertaining from start to finish. I love that it takes place almost entirely in Nashville. There are a lot of reference to Vince Gill. A LOT! The author must be a fan of his. If you're a fan of the TV show, Nashville, you will definitely love this!

Book Blitz! Losing Track by Trisha Wolfe





Losing Track (Living Heartwood #2) by Trisha Wolfe
Genre: New Adult (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: October 15, 2014
Publisher: Self

Sometimes you have to lose your way before finding the right track.

The roar of a bike engine. The vibration between her thighs. The feel of cool darkness kissing her skin as she coasts along twisty back roads at night—Melody Lachlan lives for these things. Ever since Mel and her best friend Darla escaped their small, backwoods town, they’ve traveled the countryside in search of fast rides, tatted bikers, and good times.

A self-proclaimed poet and lover of all things free, Mel views her life as one long bike ride—with pit stops along the way to numb the pain. But she never saw herself as a junkie. Party as hard as you ride. That’s her motto…until a tragic night steals her soul. Then she’s forced to delve below the surface, to where her demons rage.

When she meets recovered drug addict Boone Randall, she’s more likely to deck him than kiss his dimple-adorable face. She doesn’t want his help; doesn’t want to own up to her part in that night. She just wants to do her time and keep her promise to her friend. Yet Boone challenges Mel, and soon she doesn’t mind sharing the road. Only when Boone’s own secret demons threaten their newfound, fragile security, Mel’s course becomes rocky, and she must decide if letting her well-worn track marks fade is worth finding a new path. 

Told from Dual point of view from Melody and Boone, this is a New Adult Contemporary Romance intended for readers seventeen years of age and older.
