Clay and Katie Parker, love them! I felt like I was right there in this book with them. Georgia Clay is so entertaining, and the characters are amazing. I can’t wait to read Georgia On My Mind!

Cute little book

Georgia Clay is about a high school crush that became a fairy-tale.. sort of. In it, you will meet Katie and Clay. Now Clay had the biggest crush on Katie when they met their senior year. He also saw her as the beautiful angel that was always out of reach. However, things definitely change between the two at their high school reunion.

They both love their jobs: she's an insurance executive and he's a songwriter. After a hot night filled with so much smut, they decide to try a lon

Katie and Clay are reunited at their high school reunion. He is a songwriter, she an insurance executive. They admit they had crushes on each other back then and hit it off and proceed to have hot steamy sex all weekend. They then attempt to have a long distance relationship. Clay's career begins to go in a new direction, and they both struggle to cope.

I've got mixed feelings about this book, and I think it stems from how their careers are the only source of drama in the book. Realistic, perhaps

I really loved this book. I loved Clay and I really liked Katie. It was such a sweet minimal drama. I love how they came to get together, how they just fit so perfectly together. It was literally like a fairy tale. I really liked Katie's "work husband" Dale, he was a great secondary character. So was Buddy. I also loved the country part in this book. I loved reading about things in Nashville - when I visited I wish I had more time there. Overall this book had little to no drama which was great t ...more

Oh man! I ADORED this story and I LOVE a feel-good, love story! I was quickly consumed by Katie and Clay. Katie wasn't aware of who he was as a songwriter, but she was drawn to the man himself. When they bumped into each other, there was a pull between them. The relationship was realistic, the chemistry palpable through the pages. They weren't looking for love, but soon had to navigate a long-distance. This book

Clay and Katie... reunited at a class reunion. Clay's always had a crush on Katie. Their friendship growing into a relationship was pretty steamy. Both of them work a lot. Clay has a little insecurity from his childhood. Hopefully Katie can help him with that.
These characters were written in such a way that you just want to know them. The story line was believable. I cant wait to see what happens with the next book.

A five-star read for me is a book where I am hooked on the characters and storyline from the first chapter. It is a book that I can't put down and one where I don't have a choice but to ignore everything else going on around me. Georgia Clay was that for me, and it has instantly added KG Fletcher to my 1-click author list. ...more

Georgia Clay is the first book in the Southern Promises Series by K.G Fletcher. First of all, how have I not discovered this author before now? There are books I have missed out on until now…. If this book hadn’t have shown up in my feed, I may not have discovered a whole new source of wonderful reads. This may have been my first book by Ms. Fletcher, but it certainly won’t be my last.

This is the first book in the Southern Promises series.

We start with Katie going to her 10 year class reunion. This is where she runs into Clay. Clay is now a songwriter living in Nashville and Katie works in insurance. Clay has had a crush on Katie since high school. They reconnect and catch up at the reunion.

When Clay calls and invites Katie to Nashville she is thrilled. Watching his performance moved her deeply and she got very emotional. It even gave me

Georgia Clay by KG Fletcher is the first book in her Southern Promises series and it was definitely a HOT HOT HOT read! Following the story of famous song writing country star Clay and Katie, was such a fun read. Clay has become a famous song writer to the biggest country stars, but anytime someone says that he would be even better in front of the spotlight he balks at the idea. Skeletons from his past keep him hiding his true talent in hopes that he can achieve happiness without having to bring ...more

Georgia Clay is the first book in my very first series, Southern Promises. I was excited to write a series of standalone Southern romance stories that featured my hometown of Atlanta, GA and living in the South. This book is an homage of sorts to my time living in Nashville as a singer/songwriter. Much of what I write about in this story is from experience. As a professional singer, I have had the privilege of being behind-the-scenes in some pretty famous places, as well as performing in them.

This is the first book I've read by KG Fletcher. It is a cute romantic story. The characters are believable. The two lead characters, Katie and Clay, are on the fast track to love. It seemed like they fell in love quickly and turned their lives upside down in a short amount of time. This story was short and easy to read. It is a feel good romance with a HEA. It has country music in the forefront of this story and talks a lot about pas

After several months of a good-book draught, I finally found a novel that made me swoon. This book was amazing.

If you love country music.
If you love hot cowboys.
If you love Nashville.
If you love romance with a bit of spice.

Then you will love Georgia Clay, the story of how two people from separate worlds were brought together through country music. I loved everything about this story, from the detailed glimpses of the country music industry, to the romantic settings (the moonlight kiss in the bac

This is a great easy to read book. I really enjoyed it. The story flowed nicely. The characters are interesting. I loved Clay. Seriously what a gentleman! Finally getting his greatest wish! He seems like a nice southern guy who just happens to be famous. His family values are an attractive quality about him. I love the times when he is with Katie. It’s like I can really “feel” the emotion each one has for the other.

Her writing was so beautiful and I loved every second of this book! If ever a book gave me all the feels it was this one!

Old feelings resurface and the couple spend until the early hours talking in Clay’s pickup truck. The pair then start a long distance relationship but Cla ...more

I wasn’t sure I was going to enjoy this book but it turned out to be really good. It even had me tearing up at certain points. I’m not really into cowboys but Clay Watkins took my breath away. It wasn’t his fit form that attracted me either, it was that he was a true southern gentleman with a heart of gold. He had a major crush on Katie Parker in high school and when they bumped into each other at their high school reunion, he realized he was still crushing.
