Rising Star by Terri Osburn

Can love survive the bright lights of fame?

A popular DJ at the hottest station in Nashville, Charley Layton is doing what she’s always wanted to do: living in the heart of country music. Charley puts her career first and relationships second, but when a charismatic stranger in a black cowboy hat invites her back to his place, she decides to give herself one night of no-strings fun.

But Dylan Monroe isn’t a no-strings kind of guy. Charley is beautiful, brainy, and brassy as hell—the kind of girl he’s always wanted. When his record label books him an interview on Charley’s show, he’s determined to find out why he woke up alone, and when he can see her again.

With Dylan now the most eligible bachelor in country music, Charley doubts their fling stands a chance, but she’s willing to try. Dylan dreams of fame, but he also craves a life offstage with Charley. Can he convince her that both of their dreams are worth chasing, and that love is still possible, even in the spotlight?

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is a very enjoyable book – and I am looking forward to more installments. Ms. Osburn does a great job of introducing us to a new set of interesting people and the Nashville scene. There were plenty of side stories which could develop in the future, and a very satisfying core too.

This book does a really good job of getting us right into the music world, and unusually also brings in radio – which is of course an excellent complement and gives Charley a good career to fit with Dylan's; win win. The fact that it is country music also tones down the expectations of crazy; although fans will be fans!

I don't know where Ms. Osburn got her inspiration for Elvis, and especially his full name, but it was unexpectedly funny and throws naming rules out of the window! I am looking forward to finding out more about his little entanglement too.

Really a well-crafted, sexy, fun, and entertaining read, roll on book #2!
