Acord doar 3.5 stele acestei carti.
Nu spun ca este o carte mediocra,dar parca-i lipseste ceva.
Personajele sunt superficial construite,din punctul meu de vedere,autoarea putea sa elaboreze mai mult acest capitol.
Amandoi sunt in industria muzicala si sunt talentati.
Ceva nu-mi place la modul in care Dex se indragosteste la prima vedere.Nu este prea credibila aceasta varianta,pentru ca el este un muzician consacrat,iar ea o simpla fata.Nu pot sa cred ca dupa doi ani de zile el nu a uitat-o.

3.5 "Fun-to-read" Stars

Sometimes a simple visit to romanceland is all it takes to put a smile on this reader's face. That’s exactly what I found in Bethany Michaels’ “Nashville Heat” and it was a freebie to boot! Quick, short and fun read on a Sunday afternoon with a cast of easy to like characters and steamy encounters set in country music’s exciting city of Nashville. One has already found fame and the other is still striving with every ounce of strength to gain it. A chance encounter puts the

Sydney and Dex had SEXUAL FEVER
The place ignited when they got together
I was like it is getting good baby!!!!

I didn’t like how she was playing hard to get which made Dex reminisce about her more…she was a sexual ,erotic, sex-in-a-public-place STAIN on his brain and downstairs .
Eventhough she was acting up…Becca let her know how it was…she was a saucy character!!! MUY CALIENTE!!!!
I was so GIDDY reading this book…I can’t believe I stayed up all night reading and couldn’t get up for

work the next
good story of falling in love despite trying to avoid it!
I really really really enjoyed this book! it hit like on every point I think a good book should have.
We meet Sydney a girl who is trying to get her foot in the door musically by waitressing at big time celebrity parties and she meets the new and rising country star Dex Wilder. And he is one HOT, smoldering cowboy! the two instantly have a connection and you can feel it radiating through the pages. They hook up one night and Syd runs, she knows what she wants in life and is not willing to sacrif
Despite what the previous Amazon reviewers put, there really were not a lot of editing mistakes though there were a few. However, they certainly didn't distract from the great story centered around the Nashville music scene about Sydney- a trying but not succeeding singer/songwriter, and Dex - a successful country chart topper. Also, this is fiction so when some critics put it was not a believable storyline I disagree -in fictional romance YES it was believable. I liked the characters. Usually I ...more

Sydney Stratton working for a caterer meets Dex Wilder who just signed a record deal at a party she is serving the guests in her toga outfit. Dex and Sydney have an instant attraction but tells him she's not interested. She leaves him in the part and doesn't tell him her name or phone. Sydney only went to the function to give her demo CD to another country singer but ended up in Dex’s dressing room instead. After two years, Dex becomes a country mega star and they meet again but in handcuffs. Th ...more

Full disclosure: I'm a friend of Bethany's, but if I didn't like it I just wouldn't post about it. That wasn't a problem. I LOVED THIS BOOK. Sexy, fun, and--at its core--a sweet tale of a woman who fears being with the man she loves means compromising her own dreams. I could relate. :)
Jamie Rhodes
Cute story about a girl, Sydney, who wants to make it big in Nashville. She doesn't want to sleep her way to the top. She and Dex, a country superstar, have a hot steamy encounter the very first time they meet. Sydney keeps running away from Dex. The reason....she's afraid that people will begin to give her chances because of who she is dating. There isn't much dating in this book. Mostly it's about Dex trying to chase down Sydney. There are steamy scenes in public places. No cliffhanger. Stubbo ...more
It was great to read a story about my home town of Nashville because I could really visualize the different places mentioned because they were all places I've been to several times over the years. Some of the scenes will make me look at Nashville landmarks a bit differently, especially the Parthenon. If you read this you'll see what I mean. Sydney was a bit frustrating but understandably stand-offish about entering into anything with Dex. I loved Dex though! Steamy well written romance. I look f ...more

Waste of time.

NASHVILLE HEAT by Bethany Michaels.

Dex just signed a record deal and meets Sydney. She’s crazy about him but tells him she’s not interested. She doesn’t tell him her name or phone. Two years pass, and Dex becomes a mega star. They accidentally meet again and are drawn to each other, but again she leaves him. Sydney is a hopeful country singer/song writer. She sings in local bars while working for a caterer to pay her bills. After two years she’s still doing the same thi
It was a sweet but hot read. Ultimately, I enjoyed it and would recommend it to a friend, but Sydney's back and forth was frustrating, as was the "omg, I love you" moment. Dex and Sydney had neither a slow-building relationship nor insta-love; it was described as emotional and deep but seemed superficial. It was a really good freebie, but I wouldn't buy it.
When it comes to Romance I will read ANY Kind even the country music romances. Oh boy did I have an enjoying time reading this story. It was interesting, held my interest and loved the story all together and it was also free so that put another plus in the spot. I did not put this book down until I finished it the day I started reading it
I've read alot of short stories that left me wanting more from the characters and more from the story. Nashville Heat was so unlike all of those! Bethany Michaels did an amazing job of giving Dex and Sydney depth and life in such a short amount of time. The sex was hot and the ending was fantastic! Loved this quick read!
We read these stories about musicians and always about the girl being clingy and wanting attention. This story was about Sydney being wary and being chased by the musician Dex. I loved how the chemistry was off the pages. The story seemed simple which is needed since the characters were complicated.
Loved this!! Hot country star who is down to earth and fell in love. Hot girl trying to make something of herself on her own. She didn't believe what he kept trying to tell her. He kept
trying to tell her what he honestly felt. Loved all the characters. Can't wait to read the next
book in the series!!

There is just something about Dex that Syd just can't get over and vise verse. It started racy and making you want to keep reading. It ended with Syd going to the Ophry to watch Dex perform and ended sweetly. This book flowed nicely for me.
Lindsay Wolf
This was a pretty easy read. My only suggestion would be to spell check it since there were some grammatical errors throughout the book that could be confusing. I liked the story line though.

loved the book

I really enjoyed the book. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series. it was fun to fallow the chase.

Donna Porter
This was the first book in the Nashville Nights series and the first one I have read by Bethany Michaels. I really enjoyed the story. It is a little more sexual explicit than I like, but the story was good. It was about Dex Wilder a famous music star and Sydney an up and coming music singer/songwriter. She plays in a band and sings lead at a bar and also waits on tables. When she meets Dex they really click and it scares Syd away. She figures if she breaks it off now she can save her heart.

It was an easy and nice read, but to be honest, I expected the story and the characters to be more "polished".
short fun read although very predictable and spelling errors. Good for a freebee read though.
Rae Ann
It was just what the title said....Nashville heat. a steamy read!

looking forward to reading the next one.

this was a goid freebie and a quick easy read
This isn't a very long book and there are numerous typos like missing words and incorrect words, but the story is fun and the writing is pretty good. This appears to be an ebook that was laid out by someone with very basic skills. There are large spaces between paragraphs, supposedly to make the book fill more pages.
But even with these flaws the story itself is a good one. It's a fun, short read with lots of sex scenes. The characters are a little too flawless, but what romance is complete witho

not so bad ..but dont have enough nervs for all unnecessary drama.

Good one time read. Liked the storyline but felt that their connection was rushed.
