Rock Country Review...

Bobby and June were the best of friends as kids. For two years they spent every waking moment together. And just as they started realizing they had potential to be more, Bobby was unexpectedly uprooted to Las Vegas. 

Fast forward fifteen years.

Bobby is now a guitar hero of a very successful rock band. June is wasting away, working at a local diner, and married to an abusive man. Devastating events send Bobby back to Texas to deal with some unsettled issues. When he runs into June, she’s all grown up. No longer that blonde haired, pig-tailed little girl—now she’s the Queen of the South with tanned legs, sexy curves, and more beauty than all the groupies combined. Problem is, June is a shell of her former self—that is, until—Bobby brings the spark back into her life.

What happens when a typical bad boy rocker comes across a sad country song? Why, you get the sweet sound of Rock Country. 



I am in the middle of the road on this book. I truly enjoyed it after I got about halfway through it. It just took a while to get to that point. The characters are well written and the idea behind the story is kind of interesting as well. My biggest issue was the pacing and timing of the book. The pace went from kind of slow in the beginning to banging things out at the end of the book. It was kind of like there was more to say than was originally intended but there was a goal to not go over a specific word count by much. As for timing you go from a divorce to rekindling an old romance in 2.5 seconds literally! That doesn't happen ever, even in books.

While I struggled with it I am still looking forward to reading the rest of this series as soon as I can get my hands on them. I had to give this a 3.5 out of 5 stars rating!
