Book Review - Rising Star (A Shooting Stars Novel Book 1) by Teri Osburn (Free on Kindle Unlimited)

ABOUT THE BOOK


Can love survive the bright lights of fame?
A popular DJ at the hottest station in Nashville, Charley Layton is doing what she’s always wanted to do: living in the heart of country music. Charley puts her career first and relationships second, but when a charismatic stranger in a black cowboy hat invites her back to his place, she decides to give herself one night of no-strings fun.
But Dylan Monroe isn’t a no-strings kind of guy. Charley is beautiful, brainy, and brassy as hell—the kind of girl he’s always wanted. When his record label books him an interview on Charley’s show, he’s determined to find out why he woke up alone, and when he can see her again.
With Dylan now the most eligible bachelor in country music, Charley doubts their fling stands a chance, but she’s willing to try. Dylan dreams of fame, but he also craves a life offstage with Charley. Can he convince her that both of their dreams are worth chasing, and that love is still possible, even in the spotlight?

REVIEW

What a great start to a new series.  I love music but I don't always love stories that involve musicians because often the story ends up very superficial about the industry and how the star can never find someone who loves them for them and not their job.  This book was nothing like that.  The characters were very real and easy to love and relate to.  Dylan and Charley are just two ambitious people who love their jobs and what the do and they meet and have amazing chemistry.  The story naturally unfolds and is paced well as we see how their ambitions and hang-ups with relationships are in conflict with the natural chemistry driving them together.  


OVERALL RATING - 4.5 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy
