Okay first off, I love M.L. Stephens! She never disappoints me no matter what genre she is writing in! That is hard to do! This book takes them all! I absolutely loved it! If I could award more than 5 stars I would gladly! This is a stand alone book and has NO cliffhanger!
Cutter is trying to forget heartbreak and dives into his music, the farm and booze and one night stands. Oh I love him.
Holly Avery, well she is not looking for any relationship! She is a talent scout out looking for her next Nashville star. Who would have thought she would have chanced upon Cutter in a field of all places! I love her sass and brass! That woman has balls of steel and she is fantastic!
Now the question is.... Where will it go from there. They both have secrets along with personal baggage to get over. Will they make or break each other? You will have to read it to find out! You will NOT be disappointed!
Thank you so much M.L. Stephens! I am looking forward to your next novel! Keep up the excellent work. Lots of love!

ML Stephens has earned the title of "Master Yoda" she's one of those gifted people that have the all round "Midas Touch" ! Whether it be paranormal, erotica or good old fashioned romance , whatever she touches turns to gold ♥

Holly , a talent agent , discovers Cutter by accident and the chemistry between them is instant! Having been burnt before Holly is careful with her heart and tries to keep their relationship professional but Cutter's not going to give up easily and unknown to him he proves himself and his intentions while on tour and then there's no stopping the love train !

Where I come from country music and cowboys aren't big so my exposure is rather limited to Dixie Chicks, Shania Twain, Keith Urban and a dash of Dolly but Cutter had me wanting a John Deere , guitar player man of my own ♥

I think alot of Cutter's appeal is he's a gentleman but  he wants what he wants ! He'll have you screaming his name with lust ,passion and desire!I can carry on and on but it would spoil it for those are yet to meet Cutter :)

A well "strung and sung" ★★★★★

I have read pretty much everything by M.L Stephens so far and she never disappoints. Holly Avery is a talent agent who goes all over searching for the next big musician. She discovers Cutter by accident and the chemistry between them is instant! Cutter has lost everything important to him and has himself determined to not let that happen again. I have to say this story is so heart felt and is nothing but sweet. This story reminds me of a Lifetime movie that I would for sure love to watch. I highly recommend and can't wait to see what else this AMAZING author has to bring us.

Ok I have 3 things to say:
1. M.L. Stephens has never failed to take my breath away! It doesn’t seem to matter what genre, I always fall in love with her characters. Now, after reading Bare Essentials I have come to the determination that Cutter is mine! I am normally happy to share my book boyfriends, but I think that with Cutter I am going to have to be completely selfish and say he is mine and only mine!
2. This book has characters (Holly and Cutter) who make you feel like they could be people you really know! They are not over the top, extravagant, or just unnatural. They are real people with real problems! Through all of their problems they wonder… Can there be more?
3. CUTTER IS MINE!
Seriously though, Cutter and Holly’s story made me want to cry! Not because it was so sad, but because it made me mad and happy at the same time!
M.L. Stephens I tip my hat to you! I have not read a book written by you that I have not been completely in love with! Please write faster so that I can satisfy my need for instant gratification!

A sweet read that, once started, I could not put down until the last word had been read. This story will leave you with a smile and a happy heart. It is a love story that captures the heart as you follow Cutter and Holly on their journey.

Cutter is a cowboy with the sexiest voice and, damn, he can sing! He is a love and leave them type of guy, not looking for any type of commitment. Being burned twice has made him feel this way with his first love slipping away from him and his second turned into psycho wife (now ex-wife). For Cutter, his music is his way of expressing himself, taking away the pain, his escape.

Holly is a music agent looking for the next big country star, when she stumbles across Cutter and his sultry voice. Instantly drawn to him, she sees the star quality in him and much more. She finds herself drawn to him but won't allow herself to act on her feelings. Her heart has been destroyed by her ex-husband and won't allow herself to get hurt like that again but Cutter starts to break down those walls.

Together they burn for each other and they slowly break down the other's walls around their hearts. They bring out a degree of vulnerability in each other and the best in each other when they are together. The sparks fly as they trade verbal spars and they try to get the better of each other. Cutter finds himself wanting to break all his rules for Holly, while Holly's cool, professional demeanor she has worked so hard to build comes tumbling down.

It is a gentle exploration of a developing love and the reader gets taken on the journey with them. It is heartbreaking and it is heartwarming; it is frustrating and it is beautiful; it is about their strength and confidence and it is about their vulnerability and uncertainty. It is a feel good story that gives you a pure love story without all the unnecessary drama. It is stripped bare and genuine.
