Firstly i’d like to say sorry for the irregular posting , the large amount of school work on top of a chronic pain condition makes reading time very short during the week. Think I need a holiday so i can mass read haha!
Today i am reviewing You’d be mine by Erin Hahn as part of the Book Tour as i was lucky enough to be approved for an e arc on Net Galley. It is a great ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.5
I had been very excited about this release due to the country romance. I love country music and felt this was a new and fresh idea for a YA book.It definitely lived up to my expectations. It explores great friendships and family dynamics as well as teen love.
Annie is a character who you automatically love as she’s friendly, talented and charismatic. Some of her background is sad and is written in an impactful emotional way, exploring grief realistically.
Clay is the bad boy you wish you hated but secretly like which i think as a reader i felt and so does Annie to. He is quite mysterious with obvious problems but is also sensitive towards others. He puts on the bravado of being tough and care free which i think was great to have and portrays what fans see in the media of real pop stars.
The group of friends Kasey, Jason and Fitz provide the humour and support to their co-stars throughout the book. I also enjoyed the bond they all make as a group with their life on tour, late night antics , fights and make ups all of which makes the story engaging.
I loved the tense atmosphere throughout which made me so desperate for them to get together after all the turbulent times of drugs, alcohol and fame. The ending was the perfect swoon worthy romance.
Everyone should definitely go and pick this book up, its a fabulous new release written beautifully.
Please show this some love and my social medias as it really mean a lot and i would love to grow this year. Thanks for reading!
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Erin Hahn started writing her own books when her little sister gave her shade about a country music-themed Twilight fanfic. By day, she likes to help kindergarteners make snakes out of playdoh. By night, she writes swoons. She married her own YA love interest who she met on her first day of college and has two kids who are much, much cooler than she ever was at their age. She lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan, aka the greenest place on earth and has a cat, Gus, who plays fetch.
ABOUT YOU’D BE MINE: Annie Mathers is America’s sweetheart and heir to a country music legacy full of all the things her Gran warned her about. Superstar Clay Coolidge is most definitely going to end up one of those things.
But unfortunately for Clay, if he can’t convince Annie to join his summer tour, his music label is going to drop him. That’s what happens when your bad boy image turns into bad boy reality. Annie has been avoiding the spotlight after her parents’ tragic death, except on her skyrocketing YouTube channel. Clay’s label wants to land Annie, and Clay has to make it happen.
Swayed by Clay’s undeniable charm and good looks, Annie and her band agree to join the tour. From the start fans want them to be more than just tour mates, and Annie and Clay can’t help but wonder if the fans are right. But if there’s one part of fame Annie wants nothing to do with, it’s a high-profile relationship. She had a front row seat to her parents’ volatile marriage and isn’t interested in repeating history. If only she could convince her heart that Clay, with his painful past and head over heels inducing tenor, isn’t worth the risk. Erin Hahn’s thrilling debut, You’d Be Mine, asks: can the right song and the perfect summer on the road make two broken hearts whole?
