4 stars – Contemporary Romance

This is a pretty cute, light, and entertaining contemporary romance about a sweet, quirky, spunky former teen pop princess, who returns to her Tennessee hometown lakefront property and country girl roots in attempt to find the inspiration she needs to revamp her image and restart her washed up career, and a big, bad, broody, injured, scarred, ex-bull riding world champion rodeo cowboy, who’s hiding from life and mourning his long gone glory days, finding the healing...more
Okay...did not any of my GR friends see that I love cowboys!!! That I love a fun, hot loving book??? That I love Cowboys???

Gosh, this was the find of the month and it was only November 1! I was on my way to grocery shop when I popped into my local second hand book store. As I browsed (looking for the 2 Pamela Clare books still TBR) I found the one and Dark Roots and Cowboy Boots. So, I took a chance. The bill was 5$, but with a 4.50$ credit...I got this hot little romance for 0.50$. Christmas sh...more
I liked it, but not enough that I'll remember it much a year from now. The secondary romance in this one is awesome and alone would be at least 4 stars. :D

The story, in a nutshell.
Former teen pop princess Dakota Dunn butts heads - and body parts - with Trace Coleman, the ex-rodeo star who now manages the marina/fishing camp that she owns. She moves back to the area in an attempt to find new musical inspiration and to reinvent herself as a country star, and, in the process, she turns life upside...more
Quite liked this story.

You've got your spunky heroine, your great subplot, steamy romance, and a brooding hero. The story centers around self development and I loved how the characters developed, grew and changed.

The one thing that didn't sit well with me was the outrageous clumbsiness of the heroine. It was like watching Anne Hathaway in the Princess Diaries as she walks into stuff to show how "cute" she is. Common now! I clumbsy episode or two is always entertaining but this girl was always fa...more

Two broken souls come together and find love....

So corny!


Trace, former PCB bull riding champ, "former" because of a debilitating accident that left him scarred both physically and emotionally... (Awww, a big bad tough guy that needs fixing. For whatever reason, we women love to fix a man)

Dakota, former "bubble gum pop star", as they called her. She was a teen sensation whose starlight fizzled just as quick as it beamed. Here she was at 25 trying to revive her career... She...more
I feel like this book should have come with an instruction manual, something like: Take out brain, grab a beer (several may be required), insert self into hot tub (take care not to get book wet) and enjoy. At the very least "book best enjoyed with beer" should appear in small print below the book praises on the back cover. Under these circumstances, I may have rated this 4 stars...

While cute, 'He's No Prince Charming' definitely falls under the "fluff" category - there is absolutely nothing ser...more
A sweet, cute, bubbly romantic comedy of an ex-teenage pop-star attempting to reinvent herself back home, but her klutzy attempts at turning herself into a cool redneck chick only succeed in gaining the attention of former bull-rider turned fishing-camp supervisor.

Nothing special about it, it was fun and light. The only problem was the fact I actually liked the secondary romantic plot (between Grady and Sierra) a lot better than the budding romance between Dakota and Trace. Oh, well.
This book is a great easy read. The two main ladies in the book have some great adventures. Laugh out loud funny. Overall I thought the book was fun. Although the end of the book seemed rushed. There were a lot of pages spent developing the relationships of the characters then all of a sudden it's the end.
Cute easy quick read! Made me smile :)
At sixteen Dakota Dunn was a pop princess and at twenty five she was all washed up. She heads to her last piece of property Willow Creek Fishing Camp and Marina in Tennessee to do some serious song writing and contemplate salvaging her career. Her father had turned the camp over to be run by a cowboy, Trace Coleman a former Bull Riding Champion who's serious injuries had forced him from the sport. He sees her as troublesome pop princess not as a person who is struggling to transform her image fr...more

I read this book in a day and was glad for the quick, predictable distraction. I would have liked a lot more edge to the plot but the character were likable enough to keep me turning pages. Dakota, a washed up pop singer, goes back to home town to reinvent her career. She falls for (really fast) a former champion rodeo cowboy whose injury in a bull riding competition left him unable to compete again. It was a flirty and fun read.
This book was just OK for me. I was a bit annoyed by the slap-stick in this, felt it was not necessary. I got tired of the heroine falling down all the damned time, necessitating a rescue by the hero. I think the romance could have happened without all of that. I did like the secondary romance in this one- that seemed more realistic to me than the primary one did.
that was nice. but not much spark. and the end was rushed in my humble opinion.
and I'm not a fan of the "oh my suddenly I'm so clumsy"heroines...
i loved this book. trace drove me crazy always second guessing himself and being selfish but i love how it ended.
LOVE THE COVER :) but I just felt it was lacking plot. It was an enjoyable frivolous light read but not a keeper.
This book was a quick read for me it was very funny and light hearted. I loved all the characters.
Very cute. Luann Mclane created her own style and doesn't disappoint. Nice secondary romance too !
Cute and read this pretty fast.

The last part felt rushed though.
