About me

Hi I'm Janna and I am a book whore! I started this blog after being a part of another for years. While being a big blog may be nice I like to stay true to me having a love for books, that's why I blog. I love books and I want to share that love with my readers of this blog. I love to read, books are my escape and a huge part of my life besides my husband and two children. I am honest and sometimes sassy in my reviews but never mean. Some of my favorite authors include Kristen Ashley, Penelope Douglas, T.M. Frazier, M.N. Forgy, Rachel Van Dyken, Meghan March and Vi Keeland to only name a few!

ARC Review! Dream Maker by 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.
I liked this book, but I didn't love it. I liked both of the main characters. I thought Shane was interesting and I really liked Avery. I believed the characters, I also believed their attraction and their motivation. I liked that some of the secrets that were revealed were handled in an adult manner...no extra drama. I also liked the supporting characters and the addition they gave to the story.

So, why the 3? There wasn't enough of their relationship. They were apart a lot more than they were together. Most of the book was spent with them not a couple and not really spending time together. This made it difficult to invest in their relationship because it really didn't have a developed story ARC.

I do recommend this book, but with some reservations.
