Harper Laurence has been jilted on her way to the altar. Desperate for some time away from her friends and family, Harper takes off for Nashville—only to meet a hot, scruffy, tattooed stranger. A man she liked a little too much, and who left her the teeniest bit . . . well, pregnant.
Liam James is an up-and-coming country musician, who just found his muse. Ever since their weekend together, Liam hasn't been able to forget the curvy, vivacious woman who left him wanting more, even as she inspired some of the greatest songs he's ever written. He's determined to convince Harper that he's the guy for her . . . and that the best love songs can never be unsung.
This book was super cute and adorable. I knew from the synopsis that this book would involve the heroine turning up unexpectedly pregnant, which for me can go either way, but in this book it just worked so well. I love the whole musician angle as well, I used to really adore country music, and this book really brought me back to that.
So our heroine is Harper and she is in Nashville visiting her aunt after being left by her fiancee, when one night at a bar she ends up meeting this guy, Liam, who gallantly rescues her from a unwanted dude hitting on her. They hit it off, like really hit it off. I was really impressed out how well the chemistry came right from the beginning. And when Harper’s weekend plans don’t pan out she ends up spending the weekend with Liam. They have no specifics deal, so they just spend time together talking and of course spending time between the sheets. But on the last night things take a deeper more serious turn and Harper freaks out and runs.
Fast forward and we have a pregnant Harper running into Liam at a public function, where she has to tell him she’s pregnant. And did I mention that his entire family is there as well? Talk about an awkward way to meet the family. I actually really thought that Liam handled the unexpected baby news pretty well, yes there was definitely some bumps with the new found news, but hey it came right out left field so he was entitled to be a little lopsided about it.
I liked how the two of them came together throughout the book. They really did have a great dynamic and you knew from before the baby that they had great chemistry and real feelings for each other. I really was pulling for them to work out really early on in the book. Liam is a musician and that means travel as well as dealing with tabloids and all the other trappings of fame, so of course that and obstacle that they have to traverse, but it definitely made for an interesting read. And let me tell you there is one particular person who is set on getting her hooks in Liam and she loves to stir the pot.
Overall I thought this was a really good, cute romance. It was a quick read for me, but enjoyable from beginning to end. The characters were just so likable, and it really made the story all the more better. I look forward to reading more of this author in the future.
