Overall I liked this story and found the plot engaging. Billy is a country singer and is seeking his fame and fortune. He starts working as a ranch foreman and sings at Open Mic Night at the bar owned by his employers. They are good people and draw the attention of their friend Ian who comes along to hear Billy perform. Ian is a talent scout for a music label and he sees great potential in Billy.One of the main issues faced by the men is Ian's reluctance to put his heart on the line "He had long ago decided that he could never totally give his hear to another man, never totally trust anyone again. The risk of loving, trusting, and possibly losing was far too great. The stakes were too high, and his heart, even after so much time had passed, was still too sensitive to chance it." Plus there is drama caused by someone holding a grudge which injects a bit of excitement.I love a good cowboy and a good musician romance so had high expectations for this story. However it didn't quite achieve the heights of my expectation. This was mainly due to a couple of factors. In the early chapters of the book I felt like the story was being told but it wasn't drawing me in. And some parts of the story had a slightly unnatural feel about them. For example, when Ian finally shares some details of his history and recounts an episode from his past, it has a strange level of really specific detail that I wouldn't normally expect in a memory being shared, recounting every look and touch.I like country music, as in I don't mind listening to it but I don't usually seek it out. so it was really interesting to see the songs sung by Billy. I took the opportunity to look them up and enjoyed being introduced to something new. The songs were:"Moments" by Emerson Drive"Love Me If You Can" by Toby Keith"Find Out Who Your Friends Are" by Tracy Lawrence"Bless the Broken Road" by Rascal FlatsI now publish all my m/m reviews on my blog so if you want to see all my m/m reviews in one place come visit at Because Two Men Are Better Than One!
