Love that Rock Star!

This was an entertaining love story between a single Mom who is a rancher and a rock star Father who is looking to connect better with his son. Really FIND his son, since his son ran away.

I'm not normally a fan of westerns and when I read the title, I was a little worried because I don't enjoy the ranching/farming/western stuff. However, this really wasn't a story about ranching - it's a horse farm and the focus was not really all about farming at all.

Have I also mentioned that I LOVE books about rock stars?

The Rancher and The Rock Star was a sweet love story. I say sweet because it really WAS. There was slow tension growing between the adults that kept you entertained. When they finally connected though... whew! Hot!

I loved the kids in the story. Kim and Donovan almost stole the show.

The plot was very well done. There were a lot of twists and turns relating to their romance, the connection between Gray and his son, a mystery about the paparazzi finding Gray, and the problems that Abby was having with her horse farm and simply surviving in a small farm.

There were so many parts in this book that made me smile.

The only problem that I had with the book and want to mention is the religious overtones. There were not that many but they were thrown in there at different times. I felt that it added to the character of Abby but I personally didn't love it. :)

This was a great read though and I really enjoyed spending time with Abby and Gray! ** I received an advance copy as part of the Avon Addicts.

This a very sweet book. With the religious overtones it might not be for everyone. I enjoyed watching a father learn to be a better father and a widow learn to love again. I also liked how well they were able to mesh the families together. At times you wanted to shout at Gray that he needed to pay more attention to his life. I also enjoyed the town people. I will say that the beginning of the book was slightly slow going but picked up quickly.

    Pleasantly Surprised! For a first time a

    Pleasantly Surprised! For a first time author this well-written and entertaining story. It was not your standard story. Although I must admit I guessed correctly whom the bad guy would be. The storyline was poignant and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I highly recommend it. I was disappointed that there was not another yet from this author because I was ready to buy.

    Wonderful

    I really enjoyed this story. It had just enough sexual overtones in it to keep it interesting without being too much. It also managed to sandwich in some family values and christain beliefs without getting dull. I was sad not to be able to find anything else by this author.
