Cooper Krenshaw knows what it's like to feel the bright lights upon him, the sound of the crowd roaring when he walks on stage; after all, he happens to be one of the biggest names in country music at the moment. And he has knowingly just dropped off the grid; the first decision he has made on his own in quite some time. Cooper only thought he was looking for a challenge when he walked off of that concert stage in Chicago. After finding himself in Devil's Bend, Texas, he soon realizes that the dream he's been chasing might not be the one he was after all along.
Now he's found himself not only starting over in a new town, but he's pretty sure he's met the toughest challenge of his life... she just happens to be an angel in blue jeans.
Tessa Donovan hasn't been the best of friends with fate for quite some time now. Owning and operating The Rusty Nail, a small bar in her hometown of Devil's Bend, has been enough to keep her going through the motions of her life. But it's the only thing she's got. After losing her husband 15 short months after they were married, Tessa has spent the last four years chasing dreams in order to maintain her sanity. Only those dreams are soon ripped right out of her grasp by a sexy country music star who claims he descended on her small town by accident.
Coincidence? Or has fate stepped in once again? Whatever the case, Tessa knows the handsome cowboy might get to overtake her dreams, but she's bound and determined that he won't take her heart.

Good Books Don't Promote Violence
Tessa (29) and Cooper (early thirties) could have been likeable characters but they were just too insecure to be truly interesting. "I'm not good enough for someone to love me" would have been understandable in high school, maybe college; however I thought it just annoying at their ages.
The plot could have been engrossing (2 very different people with the same dream of building a equestrian center for therapy purposes), the small Texas town was homey, the narration was excellent and the author was talented. Unfortunately, I found it hard to care about characters who don't like themselves.
FYI, medium hot sex scenes, some explicit language, no BDSM violence, suitable for 18-25 age group
I would say that any book is well spent time.
Maybe not have that Texas drawl so much (I am from East Texas) ... we don't all talk that way.
I think it was a good romance story as written.
It's my fault , really. I didn't realize I was buying porn.
Nope she is too crude for my taste. I'm sure she has a fan base though. Tattoo covered bleach blonds that yell Woo Hoo a lot and drink daily.
Boredom, and a sore finger from fast forwarding through the sex
This book Probably appeals to some, it's just too crude for me. If you took the sex out there wouldn't be enough plot for a commercial. I realize a lot of people worked hard to make this book happen, and I feel bad for them.
I felt like I could see everything coming in this story and it was so played out and boring.
I really didn't like this story and female narrator really irritated me, I ended up but this on the highest speed possible as I wanted to get it over with as soon as possible.
"great follow on with the Walkers"
when Cooper decides to fight for what he wants
they both did a good job
yes when Tessa's ex embarresses her
really loved this one can't wait for the next
