I've been in a real reading slump lately. It seems like I've been reading the same stories over and over again. You know the ones I mean: billionaire alpha males (kinky and unkinky); rock star/Hollywood drama; college angst (often involving love triangles); biker bad boys; tattooed bad boys, fighter bad boys... oh, and vampires (yummy). Don't get me wrong; I love them all. In fact, if you wrote about a tattooed vampire who rides his Harley to college with a guitar strapped on his back, well, count me in!
"Girl with Guitar" just did it for me. It's as simple and as complicated as that. The characters were well developed and multidimensional. The emotions were real and gritty. The dialogue was good. I loved the whole thing, even the parts that made me cry. Thank you, Caisey Quinn, for making me feel again.
"Kid, you're either crazy or desperate - and you have to be both to make it here. I think you're gonna do just fine."
Both, Kylie thought to herself. I'm both.
Kylie Ryans is an 18 year old aspiring country singer who has dreams of being on the stage with the lights and everything else that comes with it, she is determined to make a name for herself and make her daddy proud. So she does what every country singer does, she takes off for Nashville with everything she has! Once she gets there she sees it truly is everybody's dream but just as she thinks she is done, she walks into The Rum Room and that's where she finds her moment, the one that changes everything, Mr. Trace Corbin.....
Trace Corbin should come with a warning label: highly addictive...
"She was from Oklahoma and she knew a thing or two about storm warnings. Trace Corbin was setting off all the sirens inside her. Kylie was standing directly in the path of something wild and dangerous and a hell of a lot more powerful than her."
"Take Cover, they said, because the storm was here, now. And Kylie wanted nothing more than to hurl herself right into its path."
Trace is a gorgeous, sexy, and the infamous country singing bad-boy who's on his own path of self-destruction. Kylie is asked to join him on tour after she puts him in his place on stage. And that stage banter doesn't end there, oh no these two continue on and off stage and that's what really made me fall in love. The tension between the two was AMAZING and it gives you the butterflies and the angst. Remember those tears I said I had yeah this is the cause!!
"And then she was hit with a wave of panic. Because it was too damn good. The kind of good that ruins you for everyone and everything else. Nothing would ever be this good again."
I don't know if it was the country aspect of this book or if it was just the twist of the love story but I was completely owned by this. I was so connected to these characters and I seriously felt like I was reading a CMT Country Love Story. This story was intense, it was sweet, it was emotional, and it was just PERFECT!!
Oh no. She was becoming a Trace Corbin fangirl. She could feel it happening and she was powerless to stop it."
She wanted to memorize it so she could recall that experience whenever she wanted. It was like riding a roller coaster.
But when it was over, she'd have given anything to do it again.
And this is how I feel now that I have closed this book, I just want to open and memorize every single word so that it never leaves me. I absolutely cannot wait for book 2 and I swear I can't get it fast enough but isn't that always the case with a perfect love story, it always leaving you wanting more!!
Kylie Ryans is an 18-year-old girl who recently lost her beloved father and has nothing left in her hometown of Pride, Oklahoma. Her biggest dream is to be a country music singer so she heads off to Nashville, Tennessee where she starts applying for waitressing jobs so she can make some money while writing music. She signs up to sing at the same place where she ends up getting a job and it's obvious from the moment she sets foot on stage that she's meant to sing and play the guitar. Kylie meets country superstar Trace Corbin after she blows away the audience and she joins the rest of his tour in a business where there are plenty of aspiring singers wanting the same opportunities as Kylie. She just knows that she wants more than anything to pursue her dreams of becoming a country music singer because that will make her dad proud.
For the most part, I really enjoyed this book. The references to country singers, small towns and Nashville made me feel like I was there listening to the music and I was able to escape into Kylie's world. I loved Kylie's enthusiasm and passion for music. I really felt bad for her when she lost her dad but she is able to keep going and stay focused on her dreams, which is very admirable. Sometimes I felt that this book was slightly too young for me since I am nearly twice Kylie's age and, in my eyes, she is pretty immature at times but that is to be expected for a girl who is just barely an adult and left alone to stand on her own two feet. I feel she learns from her mistakes and, by the end of the book, I had pretty much decided that I would be reading the rest of the series. If you like country music and are looking for some books to feed your desire for all things country, I'd recommend Girl with Guitar. The protagonist is young and immature at times, but if you can overlook that, I think you will enjoy this book. I am already looking forward to the other two books in the series!
