Overview

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 fifteen 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.

Nicole Edwards is known for her ability to give her readers erotic romance that will have you re-reading scenes over and over, it will have you wake the hubby (or wish you had one). I LOVED this book, it was a beautiful and touching story. In true Nicole Edwards fashion, the love scenes did not disappoint. I was in love with these characters and the story that made me hope they find the dreams they are chasing. I wanted Cooper and Tessa to have their happily ever after. I went through a range of emotions while reading, I even had a scene that I was so touched, I cried. In this book, you aren't left with a cliffhanger that makes you want to throw your kindle across the room... to me, that's HUGE! One thing I look forward to in a book is the supporting characters, as I was introduced to other characters, I was wondering which one she will write about next because I know I will learn more about them in future books. I was sad to finish this book, but I know, more is to come. Thank you Nicole Edwards, for this beautiful story. Chancy

Another great story from this author. I wrote a review last October when this book first came out. Don't know where all the other five star reviews are with all these books being re-issused. A lot of this author's books have new issue dates and you have to go back in your author file to see if you already bought and read these books. I have read all of her books and can't wait for new ones.

Nicole Edwards has done it again. Nicole Edwards has done it again. Her venture into contemporary romance with Chasing Dreams shows the versatility and talent of this author. Tessa and Cooper steam up the pages of this book as you ride with them while they chase their dreams. I recommend this book for its heartwarming view of love and a story well told. Susanne Lovely

I can't wait for the next one. This is a series I'm going to love. Great characters, hot sex, true love and music. Who could ask for anything more. If Nicole writes it I will buy it, although I hope there aren't many novellas.

5 Hot Southern Stars!! TITLE~ Chasing Dreams (Devil's Bend #1) AUTHOR~ Nicole Edwards  GENRE~ Adult-Erotic Romance-Music-Contemporary PUBLISHED~ October 5th 2013 by SL Independent Publishing LLC PURCHASED/COST~ Amazon/$1.99 MY RATING~ 5/5 MY THOUGHTS~  I chose to purchase and read this book because Nicole Edwards is one of my favorite authors and I love her work.  For starters, to say I fell in love with this Nicole Edwards series would be a drastic understatement. I jumped into Chasing Dreams and was blown away! As much as I couldn't put it down and was anxious to see what happened, I found myself reading it really slowly. I really didn't want it to end and I didn't want to miss a single thing. Even with that said though, it still immediately jumped onto my "to re-read" list! I loved it! As I've come to expect with any work done by one of my all-time favorite authors, Chasing Dreams is very well written and it flows so well. The characters have depth and are beautifully developed. Nicole never disappoints in these areas. She's just THAT good! I can't wait to start the second book in the Devil's Bend series, Vanishing Dreams and read about more hot cowboys and singers as well as the down-home, southern, country locals!

I absolutely loved Nicole Edwards’ new book “Chasing Dreams” (Devil’s Bend). The story revolves around a huge country music star, Cooper Krenshaw, and a hometown girl from Devil’s Bend, Texas, Tessa Donovan, the owner and operator of a small bar called “The Rusty Nail.” Tessa’s life has been filled with ups and downs. She lost her husband, Richie, after being married only 15 months. He was a policeman and died in the line of duty. As if that was not enough, Tessa got herself mixed up with a man who treated her terribly and spread false rumors about her. Cooper feeling unsettled and disconnected in the height of his career, decides to make a big change in his life and to start chasing a dream of a completely different nature. He walks off the big stage and travels to Devil’s Bend to help out his old college friend, Adam, find talent for the family’s bar. Upon Cooper’s arrival at the Rusty Nail, the sparks begin to fly between Cooper and Tessa. Each of them, however, have secrets that they are hiding. Cooper is immediately attracted to Tessa, secretly calling her “his angel in blue jeans!” Tessa feels the attraction to Cooper, but decides love is not in the cards for her, and considers having a “sexual” relationship with Cooper, without becoming attached. The chemistry is hot between these two, but it is definitely not a smooth sailing road. There are many obstacles which continues to pull them apart. What will the future hold for this dynamic couple – well you will just have to read this book to find out. I promise you, you will not be disappointed!

This book was awesome! I loved Tessa and Cooper. Nicole's books are always a great read. I love how she intertwines her characters in her books. I highly recommend this book.

One thing I don’t normally like is when authors switch genres. You know what I’m talking about, where they have written in one genre and you just LOVE their books, but they switch to something completely different. And then you have the mixed feelings about their new books, are you going to like them because they are so different from the past books? Or will it be even better than the other books? In the case of Nicole Edwards, when I first started reading this book, I was unsure if I was going to like it because she has primarily been an erotica author and here she is releasing a Contemporary Romance? Talk about strange! (At least from my view of things.) But I do have to say this, I honestly think that I enjoyed this book much more than the other books she has written. Don’t get me wrong I still love them, but there was something about this one that I enjoyed. With the characters in the book, we have Cooper and Tessa. I have to say that I am completely glad that even though Cooper is a huge country music star, he doesn’t have the cocky attitude that you see in most of the celebrity books. He was very calm and laid back, until he went after what he wanted, Tessa. Then we have Tessa, who has been heartbroken in her past and is trying to resist the feelings she has for Cooper. All of the characters in this book have strong personalities and play off of each other very well. While the story itself was very well written, and yes for all you Nicole fans, there was quite a few smutty scenes for you! But I enjoyed how “real” those scenes where, there wasn’t a bunch of stuff added, it was just two people being together. It was great to read just a regular romance. Overall, I think that this is a great start to another series by Nicole and I can’t wait to read more and find out more from the couples we were introduced to in this book.

Not what I was expecting from Nicole Edwards but it was a good read with solid characters. Tessa could have been a bit stronger. Ms. Edwards' females are usually very strong but Tessa was still believable. Was disappointed that while BN shows the book at 502 pages (which is less than a normal Edwards book) it was actually only 250.

The ENTIRE book I kept thinking: Nicole Edwards wrote this? Seriously? I hated Cooper - he's not the tortured soul he's attempting to be. Seriously grow a pair, geesh. Tessa - I hated more then I hated Cooper. Whiny. Annoying. And down right pathetic at times. I did not feel the connection between these two. The supporting cast also wasn't that interesting. I think I'll stick to rereading Ms. Edwards other books and archive this one forever.
