Made in Nashville

Made in NashvilleMade in Nashville by Mandy Baggot
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

An on-stage attack left Honor Blackwood with more scars than just the one on her face. It’s been ten years since she left her spot as Nashville’s brightest country music star. Is now the time to return? And is she brave enough to do it?

Country rebel and rock star, Jared ‘Jed’ Marshall is hot property on the Tennessee music scene in more ways than one. He’s wild, he’s sexy and everybody wants a piece of him. But when he sets his sights on Honor, is it pure attraction or just distraction on his mind?

Honor’s record label sign the ex-boyfriend that dumped her and suddenly going back to her old life is harder than she thought. Can she get a new contract? Will she get to perform at the Marlon Festival? Or will Dan Steele destroy everything?

When a secret from the past becomes public knowledge it’s no longer just about the music. Are all the people in her life lying to her to get what they want? And who is really behind the anonymous gifts she keeps getting sent?

Join the country scene to find out!

My review:
This book is about the love of Country Music and the love music can be built from it.

Jared is a fighter. He believes in fighting for what he wants and taking a stand. He is talented and does not follow the norms of Country Music.

Honor currently lives in a shell outside of the public eye due to an incident that occurred ten years ago. She does not want to be recognized because of the injury that resulted from the incident. She loves Country and at one time, she breathed it. Now she enjoys it in private. But that changes one afternoon when Jared hears her play.

He finds her to be fascinating and is weaken by her talent.

Jared will fight to have her come out of retirement and play with him. He will fight to help restore her to the person she was ten years ago. He wants to be her strength.

Honor is too afraid to be involved with the music business. She is so out of the loop with music due to her past trauma that she doesn’t even know who Jared is, which is actually quite humbling to Jared.

I really enjoyed the story and how it lead me to learn more about Country and about the characters.

Mandy created two characters that were damaged and music was their salvation.

The playlist with this book is awesome.  I listen to many of the songs while reading. The ending song is perfect for the conclusion of this story. Hope you enjoy this read.

Happy Reading.
