I’m just a girl…
I’m a famous country star who’s spent her life cultivating a good girl persona to avoid bad press, but I’ve reached my limit. I’m going away for spring break with my two best friends from college, and we’ve vowed to spend the vacation seeking out fun in the sun—along with some hot, no-strings-attached sex. The only thing I needed was the perfect guy, and then I met Austin Murphy. He might be totally wrong for me, but the tattooed bad boy is hard to resist. When I’m in his arms, everything just feels right.
And I’m just a guy…
I’m just a bartender who lives in Key West, stuck in an endless cycle of boredom. But then Mackenzie Forbes, America’s Sweetheart herself, comes up to me and looks at me with those bright green eyes…and everything changes. She acts like she’s just a normal girl and I’m just a normal guy, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. My past isn’t pretty, you know. I did what I had to do to survive, and she’d run if she learned the truth about my darkness. But with her, I’m finally realizing what it’s like to be alive. To laugh, live, and be happy.
All good things must come to an end…
"I can't let you go without a fight."

This is one of the books I will be reviewing for a blog tour and the final of the series review will be posted on MARCH 11TH.
AAAH!!! A simple and sweet story about a young, famous country artist with a guy who wants to keep his past and secrets buried. The characters were captivating and I especially loved the storyline and angst! Although it was slightly too fast, but this is a novella so it's understandable. I was definitely so into the storyline and the characters!
EEEE!!! I loved it! The story was your typical adorable romance.
MacKenzie Forbes is just a girl who desperately wants to lose her virginity without being in the eye of the public like she always has. She's tired of having to keep up her "good girl" image. So she takes off with two of her girl friends to Key West for a fun, no-strings-attached spring break.
I love how sweet MacKenzie was. She's so down-to-earth and considerate. She wanted to give her best friends the best spring break of their lives. When she had some trouble with Austin, he thought she was going to leave but:
"Why punish them by making them leave early? If I had left, they would have insisted on coming with me for support. There's no doubt about it, and I didn't want to ruin their vacation."She's generous and beautiful. I really liked her character because she was so chill even though, of course, being famous always kept her in the eye of the paparazzi. It's hard for her and I understand that. Yet, the way she manages to keep her feet on the ground just amazes me.
Then there's Austin. WHEW [fans self while melting to the ground] He's smoking hot, a musician and super protective of his little sister. He's gorgeous and a complete family man. AND DAMN THOSE TATTOOS! I'm a sucker for bad boys.
"But once we're in that bed, I'm in control."Austin can be extremely sweet with his words. He's very grounded and he knows how hard it is to survive in a world like his. He's been through a lot of tough crap that life throws his way but he manages to stay positive. Well, most of the time.
AND GOOOOD, WHEN HE'S BEING SO DAMN SWEET
"I know thinking we can make this work is fucking stupid and impetuous—some might even call it a daydream. But I can't let you go without a fight. I think, if you let me, I could love you so damn good. I could make you happy."It's done. I'm in love with him.
