Book Review: Dream Maker by Erin McCarthy

Dream Maker (Nashville Nights #2) by Erin McCarthy 
Genre: Adult Fiction (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: October 18, 2016
Publisher: Loveswept

The bestselling author of Heart Breaker returns with another sultry Nashville Nights novel of country hits and stolen kisses, as a one-night stand turns into the beginning of an irresistible partnership.

Shane Hart loves the ladies. Like hit records, he can never have too many. Shane swore long ago never to treat a woman the way his abusive father treated his mother, but his traumatic past has kept him from making any solid commitments—even to a fiery redhead like Avery O’Leery. Shane’s happy enough to rescue her from a tight spot, but that’s as far as their connection goes—until their unforgettable liaison has him rethinking his impulse to love ’em and leave ’em.

Avery has big plans: first, shake the dust of small-town Kentucky from her boots; second, become a bona fide songwriter; and third, keep the truth hidden about her birth father from everyone in Nashville. Nowhere on that list is she supposed to land in bed with a sexy stranger who rescues her off the street at midnight, especially if that stranger is Shane Hart. Avery’s trying not to fall for the dreamy music producer who could make or break her career. But her best-laid plans seem to be no match for a love that feels like destiny.

Dream Maker is the second book in the Nashville Nights series by Erin McCarthy. This book is told from the point of view of Shane, Jolene's brother, and  Avery, someone we haven't met until now. Avery is new to Nashville. She wants to make it as a song writer as well as find some of her family who doesn't know she exists(and she wants to keep it that way). I felt like her character was easy to relate to and was fleshed out well. Shane is a bad boy. As we get to know him, we learn why he's such the bad boy. Just a jerk or is it a defense mechanism? I felt like I got to know both of these characters well. They were fleshed out nicely and easy to relate to. I think this story was a littler bit more entertaining than the first one, plus I enjoyed getting updated on the lives of Jolene and Chance, as they are now fun supporting characters to this book. Who's story will we get next?

The ARC of Dream Maker by Erin McCarthy was kindly provided to me by the publisher through NetGalley for review. The opinions are my own.
