Chasing Dreams (Devil’s Bend #1)- Nicole Edwards

Cooper Krenshaw knows what it’s like to feel the bright lights upon him, the sound of the crowd roaring when he walks on stage; after all, he happens to be one of the biggest names in country music at the moment. And he has knowingly just dropped off the grid. The first decision he has made on his own in quite some time. Cooper only thought he was looking for a challenge when he walked off of that concert stage in Chicago. After finding himself in Devil’s Bend, Texas, he soon realizes that the dream he’s been chasing might not be the one he was after all along.

Now he’s found himself not only starting over in a new town, but he’s pretty sure he’s met the toughest challenge of his life… she just happens to be an angel in blue jeans.

Tessa Donovan hasn’t been the best of friends with Fate for quite some time now. Owning and operating The Rusty Nail, a small bar in her hometown of Devil’s Bend, has been enough to keep her going through the motions of her life. But it’s the only thing she’s got. After losing her husband fifteen short months after they were married, Tessa has spent the last four years chasing dreams in order to maintain her sanity. Only those dreams are soon ripped right out of her grasp by a sexy country music star who claims he descended on her small town by accident.

Coincidence? Or has Fate stepped in once again? Whatever the case, Tessa knows the handsome cowboy might get to overtake her dreams, but she’s bound and determined that he won’t take her heart.


I was so looking forward to this book as I’ve read everything Nicole has written, and i have loved every single one. But this book just didn’t reach the greatness that her other books have done and for me, unfortunately i felt a little let down.
Not to say that this book isnt good because it is, it has a sweet quality but it doesnt pack the massive punch of Nicole’s other books.
I kind of got whiplash from Tessa and Cooper, to start with Tessa was a kick ass take no crap independent woman, then she seemed to be so fragile and needy. Onto Cooper he started off being a calm collected guy then he was like a green eyed monster ready to blow at any time.

I really liked the supporting characters, and i would want to read more of their stories. Dalton and Katie really spiked my interest and i hope they have their own book, also Jack and Adam have a story to tell im sure.

Nicole Edwards always delivers on the hot sexy scenes, she never is a disappointment there, Cooper and Tessa have some awesome hot moments. Over all a good read with a nice plot with some good twist and turns.

One of these fine days i am moving to Texas, Nicole cannot be making all the male hotness up she must have some visual inspiration right? i need to find out for my self!
