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?

I was needing a read that was not to heavy with a bit of heartbreak and this fit the bill perfectly for me.
It is about a girl who made mistakes and unfortuntaley was in the lime light so it made it so much worse.
For Violet Rae & Cole there connection was perfect right from the start even though Violet Rae kept putting her foot in her mouth.
Individually they didn't know that they needed hope, forgiveness, friendship and love but together that is what they got.
Together they found that they were stronger as a unit than individually and they both found love when and where they least expected it.
In the end I really did like this book. A sweet story about family, friendship, loss, hope and love.
I was left with a few answers in this book about what really happened to Rae as it was alluded that there were pieces of the truth missing but I am hoping that more of the truth of her past will be made clear in the next couple of installments of the this series.
4 thumbs up!
