Love Songs for the Road

Happy Wednesday! Here's a book I promised to review. Don't you love it when it turns out to be a sweet read? Please continue on to learn more about this story from debut author Farrah Taylor.


A rock star. The nanny. A love that could rock their world.

The only thing rock star Marcus Troy loves more than making music is his kids. So finding just the right nanny to take on tour with them is important—as is proving to his ex he deserves joint custody. Falling for his employee wouldn’t just be fodder for the paparazzi: it could ruin everything.

Too bad the perfect nanny turns out to be beautiful, vibrant Ryan Evans. Ryan’s never left her small Montana town before, so she jumps at the chance to see the country. And as much as accidental fame doesn’t gel with shy Ryan, what does is her relationship with her capricious, smoking-hot, shockingly good dad of a boss. Marcus is nothing like what she expected. But when the whole world’s watching them, will life in the spotlight be too hot to handle?

My review:

A lovely debut story! Farrah Taylor has done a fabulous job of turning an old cliché into a touching and entertaining read. Her characters are far deeper than meets the eye, and it won’t be long before you’re pulled in and traveling down the road with them.

Marcus is a bad boy rock star, and it isn’t long before we realize it’s what he does, not who he is. And sometimes life just sticks you between a rock and a hard place. How he works to handle some tough situations really made me cheer for him not only as a man, but as a dad.

Ryan is a down-home girl with roots and a plan for her life. When she gets thrown for a loop by her new boss, she handles it in such a frank and realistic way, and quickly comes to understand sometimes things just spin out of control. But that doesn’t deter from doing what she must, and I really loved that about this character. She was sweet and yet very strong.

Once I started reading this book, I really had a hard time putting it down! Well done, Ms. Taylor, well done.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
