Publisher's Summary

Kasey "Tuff" Tuffman just told Nashville to kiss his you know what. After winning Best New Artist at an award show, he knows it's time to head back home to Texas. So after a very public meltdown, Tuff makes his way to Austin, where the Red Dirt music lives large.

Jonah Littlejohn once loved KT more than anything in the world. When KT loses it on national TV, Jonah knows he has to reach out and offer his home studio as a place to heal and make music. A bad relationship has left Jonah broken and wary of romance, but he wants to help his old lover out.

Seeing Jonah again proves to Tuff that he's made the right decision. Now all he has to do is convince Jonah that they're the most perfect duet there's ever been.

Nice comfort book

Best New Artist is a nice contemporary story about a famous country singer, Kasey Tuffman, who decided he was done with Nashville and lucky for him, his ex decided to invite him over to stay at his place to unwind. Little does he know that all he has been missing while in Nashville was in fact his ex-boyfriend, Jonah Littlejohn.

What I loved most about the book was that there were so many times that the author could’ve made it into a vert angsty book, but didn’t. There were so many times that Jonah assumed KT thought a certain way, making it seem like he valued his career as an artist more than their relationship, but KT always ended up pressuring Jonah to talk about why he was closing down right away, making their conflicts short and resolved fast.

I was a bit annoyed about the endearments though. They were too much. KT always using babe and Jonah always using honey. When they were trying to be intimate, every sentence contained an endearment and it became too much for me.

The audiobook is narrated by Brian Hutchinson and his accent fit really well with the premise of the story. The only issues I had with him was that he sounded about the same for both MCs and it was sometimes hard to follow. This especially since he tends to speak really fast sometimes. There were parts where one of the MCs would speak carefully and he would just read over it normally. What further confused me was the fact that the author used many different nicknames, especially for KT, which in the beginning made it hard to follow, switching from KT to Tuff to Kasey...

Overall it was a great comfort read and anyone who likes stories about musicians will definitely like it.

Entertaining story, nice narration

I enjoyed this story of getting a second chance at love. It's a lovely, humourous story that also deals a little with abuse. The narration was solid, loved the Texas twang and the phrases. I couldn't always distinguish between the MC's but this did not in anyway lessen my enjoyment of the narration. The narrator is new to me, but will definitely listen to his narrations in the future.
