Overview

To the world, Gray Covey is a rock superstar. But to his runaway son, he's simply the father who never has any time for him. To prove that he's more than his rock star lifestyle, for the next few weeks Gray must put aside his fame and become...a farmhand?

Abby Stadtler has built the perfect, quiet life for herself. Neat and orderly is the name of the game for her and her beloved farm. When Gray shows up on her doorstep, looking like he stepped straight off the front cover of a magazine, she is determined that he won't upset her routine.

But what neither counts on is the love that springs up between them. Abby knows that life on a ranch in Minnesota can never compete with an exciting world tour. But for Gray, it's time to decide what's really important. With Abby's help, will he be able to decide, once and for all, that love and family are the answer?

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.

The plot was decent. The characters were delightful. However, the book is a lot of dialog, and it is really hard to follow who is saying what. It did not flow, and I found myself going back to previous pages to see who was speaking what lines. Hopefully the author develops an easier style to read with future books. It was confusing and tedious to try to get through. Had I not liked the story line, I would have quit a few pages in.

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.

This is the best 99cents I have spent in a long time... Home sick with the flu I needed something to read and this was perfect... Maybe the life of a celebrity isn't so great after all... The storyline was believable.. The characters were well developed and likeable... Just enough of a PLOT to keep you guessing... I would definately read a second book if one follows... If you want a quick, entertaining read I recommend this one.

This was the first I had read this author and I loved her story. It centers on Abby, a mom, who has a failing ranch and she hires Dawson a young man to help her out. Her daughter Kim and Dawson are friends and when he traveled there, Abby hired him thinking it was okay. Little did she know he ran away from school and is only 16. She finds this out when his rock star dad, Gray, comes searching for his son. Abby is drawn to Gray from the start and sees he has problems communicating with his teenage son. There is a lot of things that go on in this story. Gray takes Dawson on the road and he runs back to Abby. His mother gets involved and the feelings between Gray and Abby grow. Abby is struggling to keep her farm and doesn't want Gray to know how bad it is. You'll love this book. I really had a hard time putting it down. It keeps your interest and I know you will love it also. Its a great read
