Roman's Holiday was the first book in this series for me. I am and always will be a fan of romance books with the happily ever after. The author did a good job with these characters. It did take me a little longer to get into this book than usual. But once I did it was worth it and would recommend. This is the first romance book that I have read dealing with the rich and famous. That is how this story starts off with Roman being burnt out of his career. He is a country and western singer that is tired of pleasing all the people all the time. He just wants some peace and quiet to think on his future and next move. He decides to jump in his car and just drive to get away and ends up in New Mexico much to the dismay of his manager. He stops at Kachina Cafe for a piece of pie and his whole world is turned upside down when he meets Lottie Beale. She recognizes him but doesn't let on because she has a secret of her own. She was an actor and has a famous family who she has been hiding out from and running a cafe. She likes the simple life. She was tired of the rich and famous life. They end up going on a wonderful adventure together and find out more than they bargained on the way. LOVE Will they be able to overcome all of the obstacles in their lives to be together or will they become another sad country song??? If you are looking for a fun, quick, and clean romance book this is for you. I recieved this book to read and review for an honest opinion.

Roman Kincaid is burned out. He has been touring and acting for four years and desperately needs a break. Since no one seems to understand that, he just leaves, without his manager or anyone knowing. He stops for some food in Rainbow Rock and meets Lottie Beale. She had her own reasons for leaving her old life behind. In each other they find someone who understands. But both are headed different directions in their lives, and it doesn’t look like they can be together. I really liked both Roman and Lottie. They were real, and they wanted to be real. Lottie, so much that she left everything and everyone she knew behind. They were uniquely able to understand each other, which made their relationship more believable. I understood why they connected and why they were willing to share so much with each other in such a short amount of time. I wanted them to figure things out and find a way to be together. And I was very happy with the way things turned out. The setting was beautiful. The research and knowledge that went into the book was extensive. The reader travels with Roman and Lottie to many historical and natural sites and learns some facts about those places and the people that lived there. I learned some interesting things, but it didn’t overwhelm the story. This is the first book in the Rainbow Rock Romances that I have read. It stands alone, but I would love to know the stories of other residents in the town. I am looking forward to reading more books in the series. This is a clean romance, but the characters do talk/think about pre-marital sex, though nothing ever happens. I was given a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

(3.5 Stars) I'm always interested in a good celebrity novel and this one takes place in a fun, unique setting. A few years ago, my family took a big road trip to this area--Northern Arizona, New Mexico, the Grand Canyon, Four Corners, etc and I loved being able to visualize the places where Roman and Lottie explored. Roman is a country music sensation in desperate need of a break. He escapes his demanding manager and ends up in a small Northern Arizona town, where he settles in for awhile, under a fake name, of course. Lottie is master pie maker and runs a little restaurant in town. They both have their secrets and it's only a matter of time until they're discovered. Roman is a contradiction. On one hand, he is so patient, kind, and selfless, but on the other hand, he came off as being conceited. I would think that someone needing a break would avoid his own music, but Roman has ring tones set to his songs and would blast his own music while driving in a car. Lottie is as sweet as the pies she bakes and her newest creation had me drooling. I would love to get my hands on a piece of that pie! She does have issues and secrets, but I wanted to see her overcome them and grow beyond them a little more than she did. I love the friendship and connection the two formed. I enjoyed the story, but at times felt like a little something was missing. There were moments when it felt scripted--like a travelogue or guidebook almost--but I was still entertained. Content: mild romance (kissing, some innuendo); mild descriptions of violence; mild language. Clean. *I received a copy from the tour host in exchange for an honest review*
