Nancee Cain
Apr 14, 2017 Nancee Cain rated it it was amazing  ·  (Review from the author)
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.

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 a

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 alo

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 chang

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 t

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 n

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

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 i

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 awa

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 received a copy of this book from the author, my review has been voluntarily submitted.

Nancee Cain has written a gem of a book in the Resurrection of Dylan McAthie. Rock star Dylan and his young nurse Jennifer are so far deep in their own heads that despite attraction for each other, they can't help but sabotage themselves at every turn. One is young and naive, the other jaded and cynical; together they are a hot freaking mess....but they are hot. I really enjoyed this book and always love the relationship driven approach Ms. Cain has in her writing.

It's a joy when this author releases a new book and I as a reader was particularly excited for this this one! This tale of a broken rock star Dylan McAthie and the young innocent pastors daughter Jennifer does not disappoint. It's edgy, romantic and sizzling, a definite page turner. Some of the witty one liners will have you rolling with laughter.
For me this a definite 5 star read.

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 be ...more

During the day, Nancee Cain works as a nurse/counselor in the field of addiction to support her coffee and reading habit. Nights are spent writing paranormal and contemporary romances with a serrated edge.

Authors are her rock stars, and she’s been known to stalk a few for an autograph, but not in a scary, Stephen King way. Her husband swears her To-Be-Read list qualifies her as a certifiable book
