Since finishing with the Walkers I've been quietly going through Nicole's other books. Have since read Conviction and Temptation which books one and two of her Club Destiny Series. I'll be getting back to those soon. Have gotten a bit side tracked with things (Blog Tours coming up).
Anyway the other night I figured was a good night to pick up Chasing Dreams. It's been sitting patiently waiting for me to finish a couple of things. I finished it yesterday afternoon. Again I'm plotting my imaginary trip straight to Texas as to meet some of these hot cowboys (Sorry Mr E, Still love you xox hehehe).
I posted this a little while ago on Facebook in reference to the Walkers but really I think this belongs to Cooper.
Ok so now I've gone gushy, I better get on with it huh :).
Synopsis - 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
Where to start? I wish I had half the determination and sheer will power that Tessa has. She's a inspiring heroine in this story who almost always doesn't back down when shit hits the fan. Love reading stories where the leading lady isn't the "damsel in distress". Yeah she's got her issues and walls up that make the great wall of china look like a wire fence and I really don't blame her. Her past is pretty hard and I'm sure anyone who has been through what she has been through and is carrying on their shoulders what she is then they would be that way to.
This is where Cooper comes in. Now I'm not a Country Music fan normally. I'm normally the rock chick who loves the Foo's and Pearl Jam and all the good stuff like that but Cooper makes me want to find a pair of cowgirl boots and a cowgirl hat and head straight to Texas praying that theres a Cowboy out there just like him. Yeah he's got some issues but from the start He's got a heart of gold.
Also I really want to go to the Rusty Nail, especially if the likes of Dalton, Adam and Jason are going to be there.
I loved this story and can't wait for the next installation of the Devils Bend.
