Her cowboy might just be another broken-heart ballad waiting to happen…
Country superstar Sara Silver has it all: fame, fortune, and a mantel full of Grammys. She also has a string of chart-topping heartbreak songs to go with them—all based on her miserable love life. Now her manager says Sara doesn’t sing with the heart she used to. If she doesn’t come up with another hit album soon, then her label will move on to the next big thing.
Sara heads to a ranch in Wyoming to get back to her country roots and rediscover herself. To keep the press away, she hides her identity and is determined to let nothing distract her. Then she meets Cal: tall, brooding, and all cowboy. Sara falls for Cal and the quiet ranch life, but with each song she writes her time there draws to a close.
Sara will have to choose between the country stars of Nashville or the glittering stars of a Wyoming sky…unless she can find a way to have both.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. This gift did not influence my opinion or review.
Silver Star combines a cowboy with a country music star trying to get her love for music back. When Sara meets the handsome widower, Cal, and his precious princess, Stella, her heart doesn’t stand a chance.
I love the way that Stella is such a princess and the way that Sara relates to her so quickly. One of the cutest scenes was one where Sara gets Stella to eat the broccoli which she has refused to even touch in the past.
The content is clean, though there is a scene where a character is attacked and almost raped. I would not recommend it for a very young audience for this reason.
Parts of the story felt a little stilted and parts made it seem drawn out but overall it was an enjoyable read.
