Amanda Lawson had changed from the young, innocent Mandy…the teenager madly in love with the bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks. Heartbreak and tragedy would do that to a person. She was determined to keep her well-ordered, work-driven life on the successful path she had fought to achieve on her own. No singing cowboy with a devil’s smile in his green eyes and a sexy body in tight jeans was going to be allowed close enough to break her heart again.
My Book Review:
When J.D. Sterling left his central Texas hometown of McKenna Springs to chase his dream of becoming a country music star, that wasn't all he left behind. He left a part of his heart with Mandy Lawson, a sweet young girl who he left brokenhearted. Now a successful country music star, J.D. comes back to his hometown, and wants to rekindle the love he once shared with Mandy, but she now goes by Amanda, a strong independent woman who isn't going to let the sexy cowboy singer break her heart again. Can J.D. and Amanda let go of the past and rekindle their love Under Texas Blue Skies?
Every now and then I come across a delightful contemporary romance story with a country theme that just makes me smile and believe in true love, and that story is Under Texas Blue Skies! Author Debra Holt weaves a sassy fun romantic tale that transports the reader to central Texas as they follow J.D. and Amanda's love story. What's not to love when you have a country music star who also happens to also be a sexy Texas cowboy; and a strong, independent, and determined woman who knows what she wants?!
I really enjoyed reading this wonderful romance story about true love and heartbreak, and how two people can let go of the past in order to rekindle their undeniable love for each other. You can't help but get drawn into J.D. and Amanda's story, it's got a great mixture of country sweetness, sass, and humor that will keep you turning the pages to see if they will get a second chance at love.
With a realistic cast of characters who will melt your heart; engaging dialogue and dramatic interactions; and a richly descriptive setting of central Texas; Under Texas Blue Skies is a fast paced good old fashioned love story that will put a smile on your face and leave you wanting more!
