Will Ashton
Music is my motivation. I’ve always believed that, because of it, I would be somebody. Somebody to someone, and something to myself.

At age four, I picked up my grandfather’s acoustic guitar and, up until three weeks ago, I’ve never put it down. From a single chord to a full arrangement, music fed my soul. I craved it with every fiber of my being, but now, I jus

This isn't your typical rock star romance. In fact, it's far from it. Will Ashton & Ava Layne are both hugely successful within the music industry in their own rights, but success comes at a cost. For Will, it's his integrity—it used to be all about the music, but he's finding that these days, it's not so much. Ava is struggling with her own demons. Like any fascinating romance heroine, she has a past, and it's one that haunts her every day, and impacts on all aspect of her life, including her c ...more

ARC gifted by author in exchange for an honest review

~ Full review now posted ~

Kathryn Andrews' Blue Horizons is one of those books which is filled with loads and loads of fluff with just the right amount of angst that you can't help but smile from the beginning to the end.

This novel though based on the rockstar 'genre' is so different from the others in its category. This story is about Ash and Ava and their emotionally filled story that is bound to stay with the r

Blue Horizons by Kathryn Andrews
4.5 stars!!

“Life isn’t about how many breaths we take, but how many moments take our breath away.”


I have been a fan of Kathryn Andrews since her first book. Anyone who knows me knows that I am an emotional reader, I am all about character connection and I relish when an author can pull me so far into their story that I feel every emotion that the characters feel and Kathryn Andrews never fails to deliver.

Copy gifted by the author in exchange for an honest review.

It was my first book by Kathryn. And I'm ashamed to admit that. I own all of her books but there is always something that is more important. But after reading this book, I couldn't wait any longer and started to read her previous books. I want to kick myself that I have always pushed them away. But anyway... let's concentrate on Blue Horizons.

In here we meet Will Ashton. A successful musician who appears to have everything. Money, fame a

I became a fan of Kathryn Andrews when I read her Hale Brothers series. I'm definitely remaining a fan after reading BLUE HORIZONS.
Andrews has a way of making my heart smile with her stories. Somehow she manages to maintain a sense of courtship for lack of a better word. Her characters aren't in love by the end of the first chapter or ripping off their clothes three pages in. It's almost a sense of old fashioned love where the feelings build and the couple really get to know each other. Don't g

This was my first Kathryn Andrews book, but let me just say that it certainly won't be my last. Andrew's writing is elegant. Blue Horizons was a slow burning love, packed full with healing and sparks. It was filled with the best kind of passionate tension and all of the emotional depth I look for in a book.

I walked into this story blind, but I know now that this book would have exceeded my every expectation I could have had. It was a stunning story of finding love and healin

You GUYS! I LOVED this book!!! Going into this book I was already very aware of what an amazing storyteller Kathryn Andrews is. Her stories are uniquely crafted with the upmost detail and precision. She knows how to put a different twist on the everyday romance plot which makes her books stand out from the crowd. Blue Horizons did not disappoint me in any of these aspects.

This book blends together two of my favorite things: music, and romance. Ash is a 30 year old extremely successful musician.

Holy wow... This book was so amazing. I can't even begin to describe the awesomeness of this book. Kathryn has this amazing gift of not just writing stories that hook you but grab ahold of your heart and just like her other books this one did the same. I knew before going into it I wouldn't be the same after. We meet Will 'Ash' Ashton who is beyond amazing and Avery Layne. Two people who are more alike than they even know. Will is a country superstar that is lost and tired of the fame. Avery who ...more

Each new novel I read from Kathryn leaves me all warm and fuzzy. Her novels have a journey in each of them that  leaves you broken at some points and healed at others. It is a beautiful thing. This novel has a few of those journeys in it  and you won't be able to forget it anytime soon.



Will and Ava are both famous in their own, but in the same way they are both broken. To escape reality and the life that has pulled them both down deep different ways. Throw in some

Flame level: 1
POV: Dual (Ava and Ash)
My thoughts: I kind of rolled my eyes when I first grabbed this book. Another book with a famous rockstar (country singer) who hides his identity. READ IT. However, I decided to push through a few chapters and then before I knew it, I was totally hooked. Ash was more that just a famous guy trying to hid his identity. And, it worked really well that Ava/Avery had things she was hiding too. That made the story have a bit more depth than I expected. Ava

When music is your motivation, you depend on the love it brings, the intensity, the calling.
For Will Ashton this seems to be gone.
When you think you've had enough...have you really?
Ava Layne has found herself, her place among her friends.
Her piano and new life complete her...almost.

Fear...it is an all encompassing feeling.

Love is too, but once you've felt fear, it is harder to allow love.

What will the Blue Ridge Mountains bring?
What demons will surface?

Absolutely wonderful!

Wow...just...wow! I read this book in one sitting. I haven't been so captivated by a book for a long, long time. This author is a favorite for a couple of reasons; first because the writing is clever, witty and engaging, and second because she writes of unique but plausible people and events.

Ava is a woman with a past, a past that is still haunting her. Ash just wants to feel again. Somehow their paths cross and suddenly they become much aware of each other and realize that

romance. Will Ashton and Ava
Layne are both struggling with
what they want, and who they are
in life. Will is struggling with his
integrity and how that plays out
in his music. He is tired of this
lifestyle and is wanting a change.
Ava is struggling with demons

What an amazing book! I loved every page of this and devoured it from beginning to the end. Kathryn does an excellent job in painting the scenes between Will and Ava, two people looking for something they lost and are unsure of how to get it back. Will plays the perfect hero: observant, patient, kind and sexy. Ava's life has been revolving around her tragic past, but with the help of Will, she begins to learn how to deal with it. An absolute must-read for those who enjoy sexy singers with big he ...more

I absolutely loved this book from the first page to the last. I couldn't tell you if it was the sexy Ash, the heartbreaking Ava or the combination of them both, but whatever it was it worked. Kathryn Andrews gives her readers a romance like I haven't read in a long time. Not a whole lot of steamy sex, however a story like this didn't need it. These characters needed baby steps moving forward and that's exactly what she gave them.

Kathryn Andrews has done it again with a truly beautiful,heartbreaking and healing story! After being a fan of Kathryn’s from the very start with the Hale Brothers’ series I was looking forward to reading Blue Horizons, as a stepping stone of a new chapter of characters; and boy wasn’t it a gut-wrenching tear-flooding heartbreak pull of emotions to read.

Will Ashton is disillusioned. Having dreamt of making it big in the music industry since picking up a guitar, he has spent the last 5 years riding the waves of success that have catapulted to the top of the country music scene. But at what cost? Compromising everything he wanted when he started making music with his best friend Clay all those years ago, this isn't how he envisioned it to be. Lost and lonely, he makes a decision that will give him the break he so desperately needs, but th

Will Ashton has lost the feeling. The rush that comes from being on stage and performing his music ... its just gone, and with it has gone his desire to keep doing what he's been doing for years. Singing, playing, performing, all of it, and so he retreats from the world to his house hidden up in the mountains to be alone, relax, and work out what his next move will be.

Slowly coming out of his funk, he ventures out to a nearby bar, the very place where he, and best friend got their start so many

I'll be the first to admit that I love a good rocker romance. Blue Horizons, though? It was SO MUCH MORE!

Will Ashton is disillusioned by the continued fame and pressures of being in a band that hit "the big time." He longs for days of simplicity, where he could play music purely for the love and joy that it brought him. Feeling a bit like a sell-out by catering to what the fans want to hear, Will decides that he needs to disappear to reevaluate his life direction- will he continue on with the wa

Blue Horizons isn’t just a story about music and love, it is so much more. It was an emotional read for me; which I love. The emotions that Ms Andrews made me experience only heightened my connection to these amazing characters. Will is a successful musician but he is learning that fame and success come with a price and he isn’t willing to give up his integrity in the process. When he started it was all about the music but now he isn’t feeling it any more. So he escapes to the Blue Ridge Mountai

Will Ashton is at the top of the country charts. He never imagined he and his band would make it this far. Music is his passion but the grueling schedule of tours and the control of the label with his music has left him feeling worn down. He needs a change and heading back to the place he grew up is where he is going to start.
