On the surface, twenty-two year old Cole Morgan is exactly what any girl would be proud to take home to meet her parents: He’s charming, intensely handsome and goal-oriented...Only he has some secrets of his own, which include provoking bar fights and a former drug-addict of a mother slowly wasting away in a medical facility. 

At barely twenty, Violet Lynn is Country Music's hottest star, until one night of partying gets out of control. Violet ends up in jail and on TMZ. Suddenly, she’s the girl least likely to be invited anywhere. Sick of the drama and keeping secrets, she runs away from the prying eyes of the paparazzi to her grandmother’s home in Forrestville, North Carolina.

A chance meeting knocks Cole off his feet, but he doesn’t recognize Violet for who she is. In fact no one does and Violet plans to keep it that way. 

Circumstances, however annoying, keep throwing Violet and Cole together. Unable to stop themselves they give into the inevitable.

But when Nashville is ready to forgive and forget, Violet is forced to choose between Cole and claiming her spot as the new and improved Princess of Country Music.

Will Violet and Cole have the courage to live for their dreams...Or their hearts?

My review:

From the first moment I started this book I was intrigued. At first when I started this book I expected Cole to be a perfect man who you could marry and introduce to your parents and have the perfect life with boy was I wrong. I absolutely loved this story I thought it was cute and it was great and I look forward to reading the other books in this series because if they are anything like this book they will earn another 5 star review from me.

In this story we meet Violet Rae or as she is better known in the country music world Violet Lynn. But Violet had a terrible accident and has had enough of the spotlight and the accusations about what happened to her late one night so she chops off her hair and goes to hide at her Grandmother's house in North Carolina. By chance she runs into Cole in the supermarket one morning with his younger sister in tow. Things quickly go south when Violet unknowingly hits a nerve and sends Cole running the other direction from her. Try as they might Cole and Violet couldn't stay away from one another bonding a friendship over time. But Violet has been hurt before by a man her ex Jaxon Hunter and she's reluctant to let Cole near her physically but more so emotionally since she's dated his type before and it ended with her finding her boyfriend in bed with her best friend. She finally gives in and learns to trust Cole but with every relationship there are secrets and in this relationship there are secrets on both sides that could tear them apart.

This book kept me up late at night reading. Once I started I couldn't stop and just had to know what was going to happen next. One of the things I absolutely loved is that the characters were so well thought out and developed and they don't fit the mold you expect them to which is a welcoming surprise. I highly recommend reading this book!
