Belle Montgomery is a small town Carolina girl. She leaves her simple life, family, and friends behind to open for the one and only country music mega star, Jake Bryant. With a break in their tour, sparks are bound to fly when Jake visits the small podunk town of Lattimore. That is until Belle’s long-time friend Chase McSwain makes his feelings known. Will sparks fly between Belle and Jake, or will Chase extinguish them before they start?
Chelly’s Thoughts <3<3<3<3<3
Belle Montgomery has done her share of singing in local country bars but now she’s touring and opening for the “country music god” Jake Bryant and with a voice like hers, she’s bound to hit it big. Admittedly, she fangirled over Jake when she first found out she’d tour with him. I mean, who wouldn’t? He’s a hottie with a perfect voice, he’s a gentleman, and he knows how to rock a pair of tight jeans.
While on tour Belle and Jake have quickly become friends. They flirt non-stop but they can’t go there, not without making things weird, but he’s proving hard to resist. Especially when they find themselves with a few days off during the tour and Belle invites him back to her small hometown and her family’s cotton farm. All Jake wants is a genuine girl that likes him for him, not for his fame, and Belle could be that girl.
Enter Chase and Lindsay, Belle’s BFFs from home. Chase has always been there for Belle, but never more than a friend. Everyone else sees how Chase looks at her, even Jake, but Belle doesn’t see him as more than a friend. Belle misses her family, her home, and her friends, but she loves her singing life and is looking forward to that career taking off. If only she could have the best of both worlds.
What happens when Belle and Jake get a little too close during their downtime? Is the risk of the aftermath worth what she’s feeling in the moment? Jake’s jealousy of Chase could prove what Belle has denied all along, that there may actually be something between Chase and herself. Will her heart lead her in the right direction?

As Jake finishes his finale, he takes a bow and runs offstage toward me. He lifts me off the ground and spins me around.
“Glad to see me?” I ask.
“You have no idea what it’s like to look out into the crowd and find eyes that you know. Really know, Belle.”
“If I didn’t know better, Mr. Bryant, I’d think somebody had a crush.”
“If I didn’t know better, I’d think you liked it.”
“What can I say? I’m a sucker for a country boy in tight ass jeans that knows how to work a stage.”
