About the book:
Annie Mathers is America’s sweetheart and heir to a country music legacy full of all the things her Gran warned her about. Superstar Clay Coolidge is most definitely going to end up one of those things.
But unfortunately for Clay, if he can’t convince Annie to join his summer tour, his music label is going to drop him. That’s what happens when your bad boy image turns into bad boy reality. Annie has been avoiding the spotlight after her parents’ tragic death, except on her skyrocketing YouTube channel. Clay’s label wants to land Annie, and Clay has to make it happen.
Swayed by Clay’s undeniable charm and good looks, Annie and her band agree to join the tour. From the start fans want them to be more than just tour mates, and Annie and Clay can’t help but wonder if the fans are right. But if there’s one part of fame Annie wants nothing to do with, it’s a high-profile relationship. She had a front row seat to her parents’ volatile marriage and isn’t interested in repeating history. If only she could convince her heart that Clay, with his painful past and head over heels inducing tenor, isn’t worth the risk.
Erin Hahn’s thrilling debut, You’d Be Mine, asks: can the right song and the perfect summer on the road make two broken hearts whole?
You’d Be Mine by Erin Hahn is a young adult contemporary romance that takes readers behind the scenes of the world of county music. It’s a bit of an opposites attract where the bad boy isn’t really as bad as he pretends to be.
Annie Mathers isn’t too sure of stepping into the spotlight in the country music industry after what happened to her parents. Both music legends themselves Annie’s parents fell victims to the dark side of the industry and it cost them their lives leaving Annie alone in the world. However, Annie’s talent surpasses that of her parents and the labels are battling over getting her to join.
Much like Annie, Clay Coolidge was born with a natural musical talent that stood out from the rest. Clay however jumped right into the business and hasn’t looked back. When Clay’s label wants to sign Annie to open for his next tour they give him the task of having to convince her to join him on the road, will Annie be able to resist his bad boy charm?
You’d Be Mine is a cute little contemporary romance that reminded me a bit of the television show Nashville. This has all the ins and outs, the ups and downs and intrigue of the behind the scenes of the music business. The characters were likable and fun to root for and the story felt as if heading right out on tour along with them giving all the emotion of their journey along the way.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
