Welcome to Colsten Can’t Wait, which is my version of Waiting on Wednesday! Every week, my cat and I pick out an upcoming book we’re excited about to highlight it! This week, we picked out You’d Be Mine.
Annie Mathers is America’s sweetheart and heir to a country music legacy full of all the things her Gran warned her about. Superstar Clay Coolidge is most definitely going to end up one of those things. But unfortunately for Clay, if he can’t convince Annie to join his summer tour, his music label is going to drop him. That’s what happens when your bad boy image turns into bad boy reality. Annie has been avoiding the spotlight after her parents’ tragic death, except on her skyrocketing YouTube channel. Clay’s label wants to land Annie, and Clay has to make it happen. Swayed by Clay’s undeniable charm and good looks, Annie and her band agree to join the tour. From the start fans want them to be more than just tour mates, and Annie and Clay can’t help but wonder if the fans are right. But if there’s one part of fame Annie wants nothing to do with, it’s a high-profile relationship. She had a front row seat to her parents’ volatile marriage and isn’t interested in repeating history. If only she could convince her heart that Clay, with his painful past and head over heels inducing tenor, isn’t worth the risk.
I’ve had this book on my radar for awhile, but I was never sure if I was going to get to it or not. I’ve never been a fan of books where the characters are famous singers. I’ve just never read one that I liked. I’m also not the biggest country music fan, so I thought I wouldn’t be that interested. Though, I have been seeing more and more things about this book that has made it a lot more intriguing to me. Plus, I’m trying to branch out and try things that sound like something I wouldn’t normally read. I’ve heard that it’s full of tropes and it sounds like that’s completely true from the synopsis. I’m a big fan of a lot of tropes, so there is bound to be one that I enjoy in here haha. And I’m also interested in stories where the characters learn and grow. Annie and Clay sound like they have a journey to go on. Annie also sounds like a contemporary version of a reluctant hero, which I think will be awesome to see! And I might just end up liking country music.
Thank you for reading!
