My Opinion  2.5 STARS
**Provided by Netgalley and Entangled Publishing, LLC for an honest review**

I really struggled to connect with this book. The story in itself was promising, but I couldn't relate to the characters or really feel the relationship between Billy and Lacey.

The whole relationship between the two just felt wrong, especially at the beginning. Billy's ex girlfriend was just annoying and Chip in his way was nice enough.

So with have Billy a Country singer who has been off the radar for ten years and aiming for a comeback.

Lacey has just opened her coffee house and has got Billy scheduled to help with the opening for the first four nights to boost sales. He was also her college crush.

Things go well opening night and there is chemistry between the two, the is also a potential investor who comes to visit.

The second heralds where Billy doesn't want to go back to his hotel because of fans so Lacey offers her spare room in her flat above the coffee house. Needless to say they don't end up sleeping in a separate bed. Billy also finds his muse again and starts writing new songs for the first time in ten years.

He has to return home after the contract is over for a recording and doesn't like leaving her behind. He sends her a ticket and plane ticket to a charity show he is participating in.

She leaves halfway through his third and last song, a song he has written and dedicated to her. Of course he ends up following her back, where they decide they want everything.
