After Kylie’s dad dies in a freak accident, he leaves her with nothing other than her crazy step-mother, Darla, and the ability to play guitar. When Darla kicks Kylie out and she loses her job all in the same day, she hops a bus to Nashville determined to make her late father’s dreams come true. Waitressing and saving her pennies to record a demo, her big break comes when she’s asked to join a tour going down the tubes with once platinum album-selling country music superstar Trace Corbin. But touring with Trace is hardly a dream come true since he’s pretty much drinking his career down the drain. If Kylie can’t pull Trace out of his rut, he’ll pull her and her dreams down with him.
So so so so soooo good!
I absolutely loved this book. It was totally what I was in the mood for and it hit every spot.
Let me start by saying that Kylie is the best female lead I have read in aaaages! At just eighteen, she is still young and vulnerable but she has such a great attitude. She isn’t afraid to speak her mind and make heads roll when necessary and it was so refreshing.
“You probably have about fifteen minutes until some guy with deeper dimples and tighter jeans, if that’s possible, comes along and steals your thunder because really, you’re not all that damned special.”
All too often, our book heroines lack balls and hold back when they should be ranting their pretty little asses off and not just sitting back and taking shit. Kylie does just that! So, for that, Caisey Quinn, I applaud you. Girl power!
And then there is Trace. Arrogant, cocky, drunken country music star! Hot as hell but broken and on a path of self destruction.
She was from Oklahoma, and knew a thing or two about storm warnings. Trace Corbin was setting off all the sirens inside of her. Kylie was standing directly in the path of something wild and dangerous and a hell of a lot more powerful than she.
Yeh, you guys can put two and two together and come up with four pretty easily… you know the drill. Bad boy meets good girl and all mother of hell breaks loose. 😉 The best kind of hell, though!
So, what really did it for me was the sexual tension. I LOVE a book with a heavy dose of sexual tension. The will-they-won’t-they, the love-hate-love-hate, the for-christ-sake-kiss-her, the stolen touches, the innuendos…. *groan* I luuuurve it! Well written sexual tension, for me, is even more effective than well written sex. And don’t let the cover of this book fool you, Girl with Guitar delivers on the spine tingling, toe curling, panty dropping sexual tension!
“Kylie, if I ever again see you in a place like The Player’s Club, or alone in a bedroom with a musician who wants nothing more than to fuck you, then I can’t be held responsible for what I might do.”
“Does right now count as being alone in a bedroom with a musician who wants to fuck me?”
“Yes, it does. Which is why you should run back to your room as fast as those pretty little legs can carry you. And lock the goddamned door.”
And then there is also a very yummy sex scene to boot. I know, we’re spoilt, right?!
“When I’m finished, you’ll barely be able to stand me not being inside of you.”
So, what more do you want me to say??? You’ve got a hot, tortured guitar player, a delicious side order of steam, a ballsy, spitfire of a female protagonist and lots of drama to spice it all up. Do I need to spell it out? I highly recommend Girl with Guitar
“Just don’t forget that you can say no because if you change who you are for them, then Kylie didn’t really make it, someone else did.”
