Pine Bluff #1

The Resurrection of Dylan McAthie

Rate this book
At seventeen, music legend Dylan McAthie ran away from his Alabama home to chase his dreams. Years later, he’s forced to return—coming full circle to escape the nightmare his life has become. Hounded by paparazzi and plagued by the aftermath of personal and professional loss, Dylan craves some quiet anonymity so he can regroup and sort out what lies ahead.

Hired by his estranged brother, Jennifer Adams knows exactly who Dylan is. She grew up next door to his family and has followed his career. But the surly, overbearing man she’s caring for as a private-duty nurse is far from the charming boy she remembers. Nevertheless, she’s determined to be professional, do a good job—and not fail at her first time getting away from home.

As her patient heals, his demeanor softens, and their interactions grow less antagonistic. Soon their chemistry is undeniable—and inappropriate—leaving the inexperienced Jennifer thoroughly confused. Adding to the turmoil, scandal finds Dylan once again, threatening all the progress he’s made and putting Jennifer at risk as collateral damage.

It’s up to Dylan to fix what his fame has so easily broken and find a way to move forward with his life. But will his resurrection mean the death of any relationship with Jennifer?

He Lives?

After falling for Nancee Cain's spunky heroines and complex heroes in her supernatural novels, I was excited to learn she wrote a contemporary romance. She sticks to her Southern settings in this story, which takes place in Pine Bluff, Alabama.

Dylan McAthie is a rock star who has fallen on hard times. The lead singer of his band as well as his pregnant ex-girlfriend have died from drug overdoses. He's alienated from his family. And, he has sustained severe physical injuries from a car accident.

Enter nurse Jennifer Adams, ten years his junior. The fact that Dylan's physician brother hired her does not endear her to Dylan. She bears the brunt of his misplaced anger for his screwed-up life.

I was intrigued and amused as the two sassed each other and got under each other's skin. It's quite a case of opposites attract. I also was horrified by something that happened to Jennifer.

The church old bitties are a lot of fun! Jennifer has to deal with being the preacher's daughter, which makes it hard for her to find her own path. I liked her awesome nursing skills how she handled the situation with David.

There are plenty of obstacles and misunderstandings between Jen and Dylan. Jen becomes a bit ditzy due to some events that happen to her, and Dylan constantly takes one step forward and two back. At times he's thoughtful (like with the amethyst ring) and at times he's self-absorbed. He's not sure if he wants to be a good guy or bad guy, and he often hovers somewhere in between.

I would've liked to know more about Dylan's music. What inspired him to learn to play guitar? How'd he go from a local home-grown band to international rock stardom?

I think I also wanted more healing for Dylan to consider this a true resurrection. It's realistic that he keeps returning to cigarettes and booze (preventing resolution of conflict with Jennifer) but it frustrated me all the same. When he starts treating Jen with sweetness, I felt a little taken by surprise.

I look forward to the next novel in the Pine Bluff series!

After a near-death accident—not to mention the death of his musical career—Dylan McAthie finds himself in the care of a private-duty nurse. He’s hoping she’s the naughty kind, but his brother hired her, so she’s probably an old battleax. Turns out Jennifer Adams is neither; she’s the one who will rock his world.

Nancee writes amazing stories about angels and she didn't disappoint me with her new romance story. Our hero? A rock star. I love rock stars!

It's a sweet, beautiful stories with a hero with a lot of issues and our heroine with issues of her own but not as big as Dylan's. This story is about fate and second chances. The second chances you give yourself. Re-discovering who you really are and finding out the person who helped you was there all along. From the beginning. Before you even knew you needed her.

Just a very concise review simply by mentioning the kindle collections I have filed this book in:

*Rock stars*

*Mental health/Abuse/Addictions*

*Big age difference*

*Frenemies to lovers*

*Bad boys and virgins*

*Marriage of convenience*

*Stupid misunderstandings*

*No cliffhanger*

I did enjoy it very much. It was my first book by this author, who had been under my radar for a while because of recommendations from book bloggers and GR friends. I will come back for more in her back catalogue at some point.

A contemporary romance from Nancee? Hell yeah! Sorry Angels... althought we can't see them, they do try to do their job.

Dylan McAthie was a rock star who didn't know how to deal with fame. Rock stars never do. Unless they are driven toward the right direction. With family and friends.
If not they would probably die or try a near death experience. That was what happened to Dylan. But he was lucky it was not his time to go.

Young nurse Jennifer Adams, was hired to help him. His behavior hasn't changed so she bears the misplaced anger for all his misfortunes in life...

I was amused with the two.

Jennifer has issues of her own, not only rock stars have problems and has to deal too with being the preacher's daughter...

Some addictions are replaced with another, they say.

For Dylan alcohol and cigars... which prevent him to solve most of the misunderstandings.

Not sure if it is a real ressurection, but I was captivated with his sweetness.

I look forward to the next book in the series!

Looking for an angsty rockstar romance mixed with sweet southern charm?  The Resurrection of Dylan McAthie by Nancee Cain is the perfect book to rock your heart southern style.
Dylan McAthie's world has imploded.  His professional life and personal life has collided and left him wounded mentally and physically.  He has returned home to Alabama to heal after a serious car accident and life altering events.  Little does he realize that sometimes the healing process, both physically and emotionally, is more painful than the actual injury. Facing his past and redirecting his future is more difficult than his climb to fame.
Nineteen year old Jennifer Adams has led a sheltered life.  She is the daughter of a prominent minister in the Birmingham area and has had to live by a strict moral code. When the opportunity to become a personal nurse to her former neighbor, Dylan McAthie, arises, she jumps at the chance.  It's her time to gain a little independence from her father and learn to make her own life choices.  She never imagined that her patient would be as moody and difficult as he was.  She remembers the sweet older boy who was kind and compassionate.  She doesn't recognize this jaded and bitter man Dylan has become.
Both Dylan and Jennifer are searching for something more in their lives although neither really knows what that something is.  Dylan's no longer a young man enchanted with fame and the glamorous life style.  Jennifer has always done what's right and toed the line.  She's trying to find where she fits in life.  Everything she thought she wanted in life doesn't seem like quite enough.  She wants to make her own choices even if they are the wrong ones.
This is more than the typical rock star romance.  This is the story of man who ran from his roots only to discover that those roots are the foundation of the man he wants to be.  This is a story of a young woman finding herself and learning to reach out for what she wants in life.  For both of them there are hard lessons to learn but together they may learn something new about life.  They both will learn the true meaning of love, the importance of family, and the healing power of forgiveness.
Once again Nancee Cain delivered an emotional novel that taps into the complicated core of humanity.  I would highly recommend reading The Resurrection of Dylan McAthie.

Nancee Cain does it again. I enjoyed getting to know the characters of her Pine Bluff Series. Great love story of the two main characters Dylan and Jennifer. I love reading about the bad boys who aren't really bad. Can't wait for the next book in the series.

Opposites Attract in this Steamy Southern Romance

Dylan McAthie arrives in Pine Bluff, Alabama broken physically and mentally. Thirteen years ago, Dylan left his home town when he rose to rock star fame. Following a horrific accident, he seeks rehabilitation in familiar surroundings and a safe haven from paparazzi.

Jennifer Adams is the girl next door who has had a secret crush on Dylan since she was a kid. She is the daughter of a preacher and has had a very strict upbringing. Jennifer has just gotten her nursing degree and her first job offer as a private nurse. She accepts the job, much to her father's chagrin.

Dylan has turned into a foul-mouthed, heavy drinking chain smoking bad ass. Certainly not the kind and gentle Prince Charming that Jennifer dreamt about.

As the story develops, personalities clash and raw emotions are brought into light drawing the two together.

Nancee Cain is an artist who illustrates her words with great vision and wit. You can easily imagine the settings and relate to the characters in each chapter.

Nancee does it again! (Read her books if you haven't!)

I will be honest, I wanted to strangle in this story, but I found a soft spot for him. I want to squeeze Jennifer though. She is sweet and an interesting dichotomy in this story.

Without giving away plot, I suggest you read this rock star story with a sweet romance!

I will admit I had some ups and downs with this book, but overall it is a very solid read. The book starts with Dylan McAthie, rock god, sneaking out of a hospital he has been in for 6 weeks, with a fake toe tag into a waiting hearse. He certainly acts like your stereotypical, spoiled rockstar to start things off, especially unhappy to be hiding in his Alabama home, an inheritance from his beloved grandmother, with a private nurse hired by his estranged brother. There seems to be no love lost between the brothers, one a respected physician and the other a deadbeat rockstar.

Getting to know Dylan better is a joy. Under the gruff exterior is an intelligent and sensitive man who has had too many shitstorms in his almost 30 years, and very few silver linings. His complex character is an absolute joy to read, even as he fights his growing attraction for his nurse. Jennifer, other than her inability to carry a tune in a bucket and her complete lack of rhythm, was a hard character for me to connect with for the most part. A genius, virginal, 19 year old daughter of a prominent pastor, she was written to have some quirks, but they didn't always seem to be the ones we were supposed to believe of her. I don't want to sound like I am completely shredding her, she certainly can be quite charming, not to mention a bit of a snarky saint in the early days of caring for her difficult patient. There was just something, or a few somethings if I am being completely honest, about her that I couldn't fully embrace and I think that comes from some perceived incongruities in her personality that could be all on me. At times she seemed much more mature and worldly than her life experience should have made her, and at others it felt the exact opposite. But, again, that could be my perception and my goal is not to taint anyone else's understanding and enjoyment of the story, because there are a lot of things to enjoy here. And I certainly won't deny there is chemistry between the hero and heroine.

I was truly moved by Dylan's backstory as it came out bit by painful bit throughout the story. The timing of the reveals was nearly perfect, slowly but steadily peeling back the layers that made him the man he was when we were thrown into his hospital room as he recovered from a nearly catastrophic car accident. Watching him grow and try to work through his past, and his past mistakes, were the best parts of this story in my for me.

Great editing and proofing, for the over 18 crowd for a few explicit scenes. It does tell of a next book in the series at the end, but it will be focusing on different characters and there is no cliffhanger.

This is the third book of Nancee’s that I’ve read, but the first of her stories that wasn’t set within the supernatural genre. Having met and spoken with the author numerous times, I can attest to her true southern charm, and the first book of the Pine Bluff series does an excellent job of immersing the reader into the rural life of Alabama, so much so that I was yearning to take her book and sit out on the porch with a cool glass of lemonade.

I enjoyed the sassy banter between Dylan and Jennifer, as well as the fast wit amongst all the characters. There is great chemistry between Dylan and Jennifer, especially when they are far away from the prying eyes of Jennifer’s church congregation and Dylan’s entourage and paparazzi stalkers. Even if the characters are dealing with some larger than life dilemmas, there is plenty of heart to offset the extraordinary circumstances.

There are still things I would have liked to learn about both Dylan and Jennifer’s backstories – things I felt would have connected me more to them, but overall I enjoyed The Resurrection of Dylan McAthie. Once I crossed the halfway point of the book, I found it harder to set the story aside and I finished the book much quicker than I started it.

I’ll definitely return to Pine Bluff to see what happens to some its other interesting residents. There are a multitude of possibilities with this series, and I’d happily recommend this book to those who enjoy celebrity, sweet, and southern romances.

I loved this author's previous work, so was very excited to read this new contemporary romance by Nancee Cain. I was not disappointed. I was engrossed in this well written story from the very first page.

Dylan McAthie is a rockstar who is somewhat broken after having endured tragic and life changing events. He is also a bit of an ass, but a loveable ass all the same. Jennifer is a sweet, innocent young girl (with some spunk I might add) who is employed to nurse the broken rockstar back to health after he was involved in a serious car accident. It could be said that they are an unusual match, but you will love the interaction between the two. And, Dylan WILL make you swoon.

This story had me feeling very emotional and teary at times, it made me smile and chuckle at other times and it made me laugh out loud.

The Resurrection of Dylan McAthie is a wonderful story and I highly recommend it. 5 fabulous stars!

Couldn't put it down! Humor, sarcasm, love, it has some steamy moments without the graphic details. It will make you cry with grief and with love. It will also make you wanna yell.

Dylan is a righteous ass that has had his fair share of grief and pain. Lonely yet afraid to get attached, At 30 years old, he is still struggling with the ideas of being an adult. But, as a rockstar and the burdens that brings, why would he? He has money and fame. What else could he need? A car accident and a young nurse, changes everything as he realizes what he has been missing.

Jennifer is determined to prove her daddy wrong. At 19, a recent nursing graduate, she takes a job as a private nurse that she wasn't truly prepared for. She wants to quit but doesn't want to face her daddy for the "I told you sos." Being a preachers daughter, she has to walk a fine line. Believing that all her choices are a direct reflection of her daddy and the church, sometimes the simplest choices seem impossible.

They both have some growing to do, if they are going to prove everyone wrong.

I'm pretty fussy about romance series I start. I want messy, genuine heroes and heroines who make mistakes. I want a bit of glamour but not a lot. I don't want to have to remember who a thousand supporting characters are. And I really, really don't want thirty pages of backstory in the first thirty-five pages.
I'm happy to say I'm committed to Nancee Cain's romance series. I love that Dylan has flaws, and that Jennifer is an awkward home-town girl. But what I love even more is how they work through their issues. The author takes you inside their heads and shows you how they make each other better. It's sweet (but pretty spicy) and satisfying.
This is not War and Peace. It is not The Sound and the Fury. It is perfect, engrossing, escapist fare for when life demands all your attention and you need a break.

My new book boyfriend

Dylan is everything you want in a book boyfriend. Musician, bad boy, brooding, checkered past. Jennifer is the preacher's daughter and nurse trying to make her way in the world. Bring them together and see iron really does sharpen iron.

There is undeniable chemistry between these two.
And I love how the secondary characters are so necessary to this story. Nance Cain's writing encircles you when you are reading and puts you right into the emotional states her characters are in. This book was a perfect balance of angst and romance and reality. I loved being part of the world around Dylan McAthie.
My only complaint is I want more.

I love the good girl falls for bad boy storyline.
Dylan can be an exasperating ass at times and lets his past get in his way too many times, but when he falls for Jennifer....... he falls. It takes him...... AWHILE to get his head out of his ... (lol) but he does eventually get there and loves her right.
Jennifer is young and a bit naive, but she sees the potential in Dylan and falls for the bits of goodness he lets slip now and again. She's not quite the pushover he expects and keeps him on his toes at times.

Their road is long and bumpy but they do find their HEA.

Loved, loved this book! Such a sweet story and I found myself in Alabama with the characters watching it all unfold. Most definitely looking forward to the next book in the series. This story reminded me why I fell in love with Wuthering Heights so long ago. Thank you Nancee!

I really enjoyed this book. The author has created a story with complex characters trying to navigate their way through new chapters in their lives. There is a rollercoaster of emotions that are wonderfully portrayed within the pages of the book. This is the first book by this author I have read and it won't be my last.

I love a story about a crash and burn rock star and Dylan was exactly that. Not only was his band falling apart around him but he had literally crashed his car. He was trying to hide out and recover with a private nurse back home at his grandma's house.

Dylan was dealing with so much pain both physically and mentally and he was taking it out on everyone around him. Jennifer, the nurse, turns out to be just what Dylan needed. She stands up to him and doesn't let him push her around or push her away.

The connection and chemistry grow between the two and then drama and the paparazzi that Dylan has been trying so hard to avoid get in the way. It's hard to make a relationship work surrounded by drama. They wonder if it is worth it.

The Resurrection of Dylan McAthie is emotional, romantic, and sexy. Get your copy today and get your hands on this hot rock star.

Great read!

I really enjoyed reading Dylan and Jennifer's story. I'm not going to lie, there were several times when I wanted to reach inside my kindle and smack both upside their heads and scream TALK TO EACH OTHER lol I am excited to see what else Nancee Cain has in-store for us in Pine Bluff.
January 2, 2018
First things first: This review won’t contain any spoilers. Because I’m nice like that… contrary to what my husband might say.

I was gifted a digital copy and, after reading it, I ordered a hardcopy (get building more shelves, Husband). If a book’s good I like to own a real version… one that I can sniff when the mood takes me (ever tried sniffing a Kindle? It’s very disappointing and people look at you like you’re crazy).

I have to admit, I dip in and out of contemporary romance because I get a teeny-weeny bit tired of certain character traits and predictabilities that seem to be synonymous with many contemporary romance stories. You know the ones… a testy Alpha male starts off broken and troubled, only he meets a girl and ‘BAM’ (through the use of unrealistic feminine powers none of us mere mortals can ever attain) she changes him into a perfect, poetic Adonis who is unrecognisable from the man he was at the beginning of the story. Please, don’t shout at me for saying this. I will cry. And it won’t be pleasant. Sure, books with idealistic perfection will always have a place (and rightly so). But there are so many to choose from. The Resurrection of Dylan McAthie takes that trope and gives it a good pounding (like tenderising a tasty steak or, for the vegetarians reading this, pestle and mortaring an incredible flavour into a piece of soy).

Dylan’s life is a bit of a car crash; he’s been through the mill (and then some). But. I don’t think I have ever read a more realistic, funny, flawed, endearing and (at times) enraging character as Dylan within the contemporary romance genre.

Yes, we read for escapism from this horribly hectic world. And let’s face it, no one wants to read about ‘real men’— they fart, they constantly fiddle with their balls, and they forget important dates… like your ANNIVERSARY. But. I have to say the bar for fictional male leads (in my humble opinion) is often set so unrealistically high, I can’t always immerse myself fully in the story world (call me cynical and unimaginative). That didn’t happen with The Resurrection of Dylan McAthie. The author clearly knows her men and knows how far she can push realism without stepping over into the unappealing. And that was so much fun to read. Dylan has the perfect amount of charm, flaws and sex-appeal; he is one of my top ten book boyfriends to date (shhh… don’t tell my husband).​

  "I know that you don't care if you get cancer, but haven't you heard of second hand smoke?"
​  "Misery loves company, angel. You can join me in an early grave."

Jennifer Adams is relatable, and a girl you’d happily have as a best friend. She might be sweet, kind and a naïve preacher’s daughter, but she’s by no means a fool (sure, she might not always make the most sensible decisions, but there is always a plausible and justifiable reason behind them). She has just the right balance of vulnerability and sass.

   "He's not that bad, Daddy. He even has a Bible verse tattooed on his ribcage."
​   "I hardly think that makes him a Bible scholar, Jennifer."

The combination of the two characters makes for the most hilarious, sexually-charged and interesting journey. I read this in two sittings. It was fast-paced and had twists and turns I did not see coming or anticipate the outcome of. The ending left me settled, satisfied and complete.

  "You're supposedly the world's sex-uh, I mean, talented lead guitarist. But I've yet to hear you play." She could feel herself blushing.
​   "I'm a sex-talented lead guitarist? Do you think I play with my damn dick?"
​   "Don't most men?"

Thoroughly enjoyed this story. I've got a thing for an older man romance at the minute and this one has topped the list.
At points, I could swear I actually felt my heart breaking. Loved the characters, although sometimes I wanted bang their heads together, hitting Jennifer a little harder!
On to the next in the series!

This is my first read by this author and I was glad I gave her a chance. Her characters and the blurb drew me into what I hoped wouldn't be the sex filled rocker book but an emotional journey instead. I was happy that I was correct. This emotional roller coaster was just that, Dylan although the older of the two sometimes felt just as emotionally young. Never facing up to issues just running and letting others handle the fallout had been his norm. Having her as his nurse, well she might be enough to finally cause him to stop running and face things head on. She knew him and had dreamed of more than that one moment in time imprinted on her memories and now she was his nurse. Hiding from a life that was less, she finds herself immersed in a tornado of Dylan. I have to admit while it is a well written and great story her over the top reactions and their inability to have open communication almost did me in at one point. However I did truly enjoy this introduction to this author and plan on reading more of this series.

Many lives have moments so broken there seems no hope.

The dream each one could find the exact person that frustrated & inspired to heal is beautiful. Sweet innocence to the jaded soul. Steamy and full of all lives most inconvenient misconceptions. Blessed are those who live out these circumstances in the humble peace of privacy.
