DREAM MAKER (Nashville Nights#2)

DREAM MAKER                                              ERIN McCARTHY

                                  Shane Hart loves the ladies. Like hit records, he can never have too many. Shane swore long ago never to treat a woman the way his abusive father treated his mother, but his traumatic past has kept him from making any solid commitments—even to a fiery redhead like Avery O’Leery. Shane’s happy enough to rescue her from a tight spot, but that’s as far as their connection goes—until their unforgettable liaison has him rethinking his impulse to love ’em and leave ’em.

Avery has big plans: first, shake the dust of small-town Kentucky from her boots; second, become a bona fide songwriter; and third, keep the truth hidden about her birth father from everyone in Nashville. Nowhere on that list is she supposed to land in bed with a sexy stranger who rescues her off the street at midnight, especially if that stranger is Shane Hart. Avery’s trying not to fall for the dreamy music producer who could make or break her career. But her best-laid plans seem to be no match for a love that feels like destiny.

This book opens with the two lead characters meeting like a country music video. Shane Hart one of the top record producers and the brother to Jolene which the first book in this series is about, who is also a top female country music star. Shane leaves the bachelor party that was being thrown for Jolene’s husband, and while walking he hears a female yelling down an alley. He then sees this short little red head jumping out of a four wheel drive pick-up and is yelling at the driver. When he gets closer he finally sees her and is taken back by her beauty, and wants to help her. Avery O’Leary is mad and frustrated and now she cannot talk because of the good looking man who is talking to her asking her if she is okay. It is then that she realizes that she left her purse and phone in her ex-boyfriend’s truck. Shane always wanting to help takes her to a diner nearby and lets her use his phone to try to get a hold of her ex. This begins a night of firsts for both of them because later he gives her a ride on his Harley and she is attracted to him, and him to her. The next morning when his phone is blowing up with text messages she starts to put two, and two together realizing who she spent the night with and feels she needs to get out of their ASAP. When he finally wakes up and realizes that Avery is gone he feels strange and does not know why. It is not until he talks to his brother in law that he figures out that he has feelings for her. The problem is he does not know where she is. Weeks go by and one day Shane goes into a song writing office in Nashville when he hears a song that would be good for his sister. Turns out Avery wrote it and was singing it as well. Now he wants to be with her but she is not so sure because of what other people might think of her dating a record producer. Meanwhile they each have issues from their own past that they must deal with if they even might think they would want a future. The part in the book where Shane goes to confront his father is very moving and the father is still and a hole, but Shane must do this to move on from the past and all of the hurt that man caused him. When Avery comes to her past hers works out. Now it is up to them to see if their might be a chance. This is a very good story with very good characters.
