2.0 out of 5 stars You won't know who to hate more.... May 15, 2012

I started out really liking this story. I was immediately pulled into all the angst and suffering from all the characters. But after the first couple of chapters I could not stand any character in this book. For the life of me I cannot fathom why authors think it is romantic to have a h chastely await for the H to come back to her while the H is having sex with anything with a skirt. That was my first problem with this book. In this case the H even publically declared how happy he was to be rid of the h and had sex with all willing females he came across yet the h still could not move on. She was just pathetic.

The H wasn't great either. I probably would have felt a little more endearment for the H had he actually acted more like he loved the h as much as he loved himself. He said he loved her, but their relationship was never a priority in his life. Even when the H and h were married, the H was involving himself in sexually inappropriate behavior with other females. He never mourned their relationship instead he jumped into bed the same night his wife left it. Essentially, the H is a weak character who always put his needs above everyone else, never loved the h enough to be a husband to her but whined about the marriage when he didn't have it. Normally a reader can get over such betrayals if the H shows enough remorse and growth. However, he acted just as apathetic when the h and his girlfriend were in the same room together. This would have been a great opportunity to see the H reject unwanted advances and reassure the h that he would always act with her feelings in mind but that never happens. Where is the growth that this character supposedly had? Even taking all this into consideration the worse part of this book was when the h apologizes TO HIM. TO HIM!

2.0 out of 5 stars Annoying characters May 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story was an irritating read. The main characters, Trey and Sierra, seemed so immature and selfish. Trey focused on himself above all else costing himself his marriage and everything he supposedly held dear. Sierra didn't share her feelings and expected Trey to be able to read her mind to know how she was faring. They lost a child the year prior to their divorce and went their separate ways in dealing with the aftermath. Trey chose a more destructive path, but Sierra brooded over the loss and didn't try to talk to Trey. Of course this was a recipe for drifting apart.

Sierra looks for Trey in a bar they sing at occasionally and finds him taking body shots off another woman. She gets furious with him, but he's able to woo her into having sex with him in a dressing room to try making up. She immediately tells him it was a mistake and that she's leaving him regardless of the "amazing" sex they seem to have. Supposedly, they still love each other but can no longer remain together because of the hurt. He handles his hurt by immediately having sex with someone else when Sierra walks out.

After the divorce Trey goes into a depression and drinks heavily and sleeps around with many women. His sister contacts Sierra five years after the divorce to ask if she will come back and try talking him out of relying on alcohol so much. She of course agrees to this, and the old feelings that never went away between the two ignite once again. From this point we have a few gratuitous sex scenes between Trey and Sierra. It doesn't seem to bother Sierra too much that she is now engaged to another man. She seems to fall quite easily under Trey's manipulations.

1.0 out of 5 stars Got it free...and it still wasn't a good deal June 12, 2013
By Susie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
So many characters to dislike, where to start?

Trey, who even though he slept with another woman the day Sierra informed him she wanted a divorce (after, of course, they had sex), maintained that he had never cheated on Sierra. If you are married to one woman and are having sex with another one, trust me, that is the definition of cheating.
And how could he not know that his lawyers (and Luc, I think) shafted Sierra so badly that she had to work nights and put herself through school after the divorce.

Sierra, who tried to get over Trey by getting engaged to a man that a baboon could have seen was completely wrong for her, but refused to have sex with him because....I'm not sure why she was saying no.

Eric. Let's just put a big, black cowboy hat on him because he was so obviously the 'bad guy' from the start. One dimensional and cardboard would be a compliment to describe this character.

Luc. I hate characters who are terrible to the heroine throughout the whole book but then profess to admire and like them in that last chapter. He was a jerk and a bully.

I couldn't for the life of me understand why anyone would want to put up with Trey for any length of time. It took me an afternoon to read this book and I pretty much hated him by the end of it.

And the notion that a male country star cannot sell records unless he is a hard-drinking, hard loving poopyhead (I cleaned up my language for that one) is an insult to men and country fans.

More About the Author

Cheryl began her professional career as a nutritionist, but her love of books started at an early age. She studied writing for many years before she decided to pursue her passion as a full-time career. After receiving constructive criticism from several well-known authors, Cheryl finally had the confidence to write her first romance novel.

The first book in the Nashville Nights series, Shameless, was a book that had been dwelling in Cheryl's subconscious for years. For her, the surprise came when the manuscript began taking on a life of it's own. Characters came to life, secondary characters became more prominent, outlines were forgotten, and a single title evolved into an eight book series, and another eight book spin-off series entitled Nashville Nights, Next Generation.

One word would aptly describe Cheryl: workaholic. She lives and breathes her writing, when she's sleeping, watching TV, driving, reading... it's always in the periphery of her mind. Her imagination rarely takes a holiday, even when she escapes to a sandy beach with her husband and son, she's planning, plotting, outlining, and daydreaming.

Cheryl feels blessed to be able to get up every day and do something she loves. The thousands of fans who have embraced the Nashville Nights have made that possible. She writes for the readers who ask for more, she writes to satisfy the muse residing inside of her, but most of all, she writes because she couldn't imagine doing anything else with her life. It took her thirty-seven years to decide what she wanted to be when she grew up, but now that she knows, she's convinced she's found her purpose.
