★ About the Book ★
ONE NIGHT IN NASHVILLE
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.
★ Pretty Little Review ★
“Panties hanging from a knob on the dresser. Check. Shirt at the foot of the bed. Check. Pants on top of a chair in the corner. Check. Boots: the right was in the middle of the floor. Check. Purse: sitting in the entryway of the bedroom and miraculously still zipped up…unlike her pants. Check. Bra…bra…nope, no bra. Where the hell was it?”
This book is the 5th book in the Country Roads Series by Shannon Richard. While it is part of the series, it can be read as a standalone novel as each book centers around new characters.
Shannon Richard really knows how to write a good romance. I found myself pleasantly surprised through most of the book because it wasn’t centered on drama. Ahh, what a breath of fresh air! Don’t get me wrong, there is a little drama, but it doesn’t make up the entire story. I really like this. This allows the readers to really connect with the characters in a deeper level- something that a lot of books cannot do. This in itself makes it fabulous read. In addition to this, I really enjoyed the plot: boy meets girl, boy and girl hook up, boy and girl fall instantly in love (even though these feelings are denied at first), boy and girl get pregnant, and more… I don’t want to spoil the story so we will leave it at that. As for the characters, Liam is definitely book boyfriend material. He is the epitome of what girl’s want- he’s sweet, charming, and a country singer. He is also a good man (not the jerk that most of these other romance novels are writing about). He takes responsibility for his actions and loves deeply ::swoons::. Harper is also a great character- she is smart, knows what she wants, and loves deeply as well. While I did get frustrated at some of her actions, her decisions ultimately make sense. They also make her seem more real. This is a good quality to have for a character in a book. Overall, the book is the ultimate romance and it is worthy of the time being spent reading it.
Not only is this book totally romantic and swoon worthy, but it is sexy as hell! I blushed quite a few times at the interactions between Harper and Liam… Eeeek! Yup, I will take Liam James ANY DAY! This book is definitely a must read. The plot is great, the characters have a real life quality to them, and the writing style is phenomenal. Maybe it’s not my favorite book in the world but it is in my top 20! Check this one out readers, you will NOT regret it! I cannot wait to read more books by Shannon Richard.
★ About the Author★
Shannon Richard grew up in the Florida Panhandle as the baby sister of two overly protective but loving brothers. She was raised by a more than somewhat eccentric mother, a self-proclaimed vocabularist who showed her how to get lost in a book and a father who passed on his love for coffee and really loud music. She graduated from Florida State University with a BA in English Literature and still lives in Tallahassee where she battles everyday life with writing, reading, and a rant every once in a while. Okay, so the rants might happen on a regular basis. She's still waiting for her Southern, scruffy, Mr. Darcy, and in the meantime writes love stories to indulge her overactive imagination. Oh, and she's a pretty big fan of the whimsy.
