He's a country superstar; she's a small town waitress. When the real world slams into their stolen dream, whose heart will be the one to break?
He's been leaving all his life…
From NYT and USAToday bestselling Texas romance author Jean Brashear, a new and emotional Sweetgrass Springs story…
Jeanette Carson has been a fixture as a waitress in Ruby's Cafe ever since high school. Walker Roundtree is country music's brightest star, known by all for his laid-back charm and irresistible appeal to the opposite sex. Ever since his first visit to Sweetgrass Springs, there have been verbal fireworks between him and Jeanette as she proved to be the only woman immune to his charm.
Now their paths have crossed in the outside world, and they're seeing each other in a new light. Fireworks of a very different sort are sparking the sky—but then Walker's world is upended by a tragedy, and the only one who steps in to help him is the very woman who swore never to put herself at his mercy. For a few days, they have only each other to rely upon, and these two lonely hearts find refuge in each other.
But all too soon, the real world demands its due, and their refuge is no longer private. The days of dreaming, the nights of yearning and hope face the harsh light of reality, and the only question is:
Whose heart will be the one to break?
An original love song, Never Forever, written and performed especially for this story by Eric Dove, is available at online music stores as well as in the audiobook.
Jean Brashear's distinctive storytelling voice instantly draws in the reader. She writes with warmth and emotional truth." ~ #1 NY Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber

Wow another Sweetgrass Springs story.....and what a way to continue this series! ! Jean Brashear, you know just how to take another long time town person and give them a chance at finding their HEA! ! This story is about Jeanette Carson, a home town waitress at Ruby's Cafe and fashion designer by night (but nobody really knows that except Ruby) . Ruby tells Jeanette to show her designs and finds everyone loves them and wants her to spread her wings. She goes to California but finds that she doesn't like how the upper crust treats her fashions and feels she doesn't belong there until she goes to a country concert and meets up with Walker Roundtree again....Walker came to Sweetgrass Springs to help build the town and to play at one of his friend's wedding and the sparks between him and Jeanette were off the charts. When these two meet again the sparks are still there but Jeanette thinks she can never fit into Walker's world....will these two make a match and find there HEA or will she just go back to Sweetgrass Springs and back to the job at Ruby's????
Although Jeanette and Walker completely frustrated me at times, I loved this book. It made me smile. When I read the last page, I was sorry it was over, but I was still smiling. Walker and "Nettie" both had fears that kept them from communicated. They would get right to that point, and either be interrupted, or pull away from the conversation. Walter's niece, Maisie, was the sweetest thing and the cause of many of the smiles in this book. I am a real sucker for a romance novel with little kids in it. Let's not forget the Sweetgrass Springs family. Supportive family, friends, and neighbors who provide love, friendship, advice, and loyalty to each other. The only person I didn't like in this book was Dusty, Walker's manager. But, both Walker and Jeanette are better people than me. Lol. I definitely recommend this book. It was hard to review it without giving away too much, and but still trying to convey how much I really enjoyed it. I voluntarily read and reviewed this Advanced Reader Copy.
