What chance does a small-town girl have with a world-famous rock star?
Two years after his wife’s death, rock star Garrett Hayes hasn’t moved on. But he has moved out of L.A. Where better to escape his past than a small town in the northern California mountains? If only he could get the townsfolk of Wildwood to leave him the hell alone.
Ani Bennet returned to her hometown for some much-needed serenity. The last thing she needs is a grumpy, too hot for his own good, rich and famous rock star living next door—and rent-free in her brain.
She set her fangirl tendencies aside and deleted his photo from her cell when they became neighbors. But when Garrett asks for help, she can’t say no. The problem is, spending time together is making those fangirl feelings resurface—and bringing them to a whole new level.
What chance does a small-town girl have with world-famous rock star? It’s time for Ani to set her fears aside and find out.
Garrett and Ani both have had trauma and have sought out peace in the town of Wildwood in Northern California. Ani has returned home after having lived in LA, while Garrett moves into the home he and his late wife bought and redid, but which she never lived to see. As these two come to know one another, and learn how to deal with an attraction neither wanted or expected, the world catches on and descends upon the town. Bring in Smith, his former band mate, the mix of colorful local towns people, and paparazzi and you have a rather complicated romance. But Garrett and Ani are somehow just what each other needs.
I really enjoyed this book. I wish it was a little bit longer, but I love this author. Both main characters have been through some traumatic events and neither is looking for someone to add to their lives. There is a little bit of angst, but the book gave me all the feels.
Too good but too short!
There is nobody who writes a rock star romance like Kylie Scott and I’m so glad she gave us another one (hopefully the start of a new series). Wonderful relationship between a damaged but resilient small town girl and a widowed shut down rock star. Great banter, heady emotions, quirky small town vibes that managed not to be twee. My only complaint is it was too short because I just want to keep living in this world and watching these character’s relationship develop. So good!
