The romantic…

When her boss offers her free tickets to the CMA Fest, Ava Trent jumps at the chance for a weekend in Nashville with her best girlfriends. Great music and new opportunities to look for Mr Right? What more could a former country girl ask for? Well, maybe not to literally fall at the feet of the hottest guy she’s ever seen.

And the superstar singer…

After becoming an overnight success, fame doesn’t rest easy on Chase Hudson’s shoulders. It’s hard to tell who’s interested in him and who’s interested in the star. So when he and Ava collide, and she has no idea who he is, he’s immediately intrigued. Something about Ava calls to him – even though he’s convinced she’s a city-type who couldn’t handle his Nashville life.

Are about to get their country on.

What starts as a light-hearted bet to test one another, becomes something much deeper as Ava and Chase can’t stay away from one another. But with so many differences between their lives, will they win the relationship they’ve been dreaming of? Or lose each other?

Each book in the Girls Weekend Away series is STANDALONE:
* What Happens in Vegas
* Meet Me In San Francisco
* The Nashville Bet


Oh dear.  I had hopes for this book based on the story we got from book 2.  They were not met.

Here, we are back to a relationship that, for me at least, felt forced and rushed.  Even making allowances for Ava’s romantic take on everything and the apparent strength of reaction from Chase.    And, although I usually have my rose tinted glasses on that allow me to escape into these stories,and accepting the fiction woven around them, this time they didn’t work.

I’m afraid that this missed the mark for me.

I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book.
