You'd Be Mine by Erin Hahn (Review)
A love story themed after country music stars, You'd Be Mine tells the story of a drunken playboy super star Clay Coolidge and daughter of two of the most famous country stars ever, Annie Mathers. They both have a past with the industry, both wanting fame but in completely different ways for completely different reasons. She to prove to herself that she is nothing like her dead and broken parents, and him to escape the tragic loss of his beloved brother. Together they try to reach stardom, becoming a team, rivals, friends and even more... Clay needs Annie to fix his image, and she needs him to jump start her career. This means they are stuck on tour together for the foreseeable future, no matter what they think/feel for each other.
Meh, it was okay. I feel quite neutral to this story. It was neither good nor bad. I found the romance uninteresting and rather bland. Annie wasn't bad as a character, she had interesting motives and pains, but she also didn't consistently make sense. She felt inconsistent to how she was described most of the time. She was built up as a paragon of restraint but she didn't seem to show much restraint at any point in the story. It made her hard to visualize. Also, the story just did not resonate with me in any way, but I could see it being fun for country music fans. All in all, You'd Be Mine was fine and I give it the rating of THREE AND A HALF STARS OUT OF FIVE!!!
