Dream Maker

Nashville Nights Series – Book 2

By Erin McCarthy

Buy: Amazon / B & N / ITunes


The bestselling author of Heart Breaker returns with another sultry Nashville Nights novel of country hits and stolen kisses, as a one-night stand turns into the beginning of an irresistible partnership.

Shane Hart loves the ladies. Like hit records, he can never have too many. Shane swore long ago never to treat a woman the way his abusive father treated his mother, but his traumatic past has kept him from making any solid commitments—even to a fiery redhead like Avery O’Leery. Shane’s happy enough to rescue her from a tight spot, but that’s as far as their connection goes—until their unforgettable liaison has him rethinking his impulse to love ’em and leave ’em.

Avery has big plans: first, shake the dust of small-town Kentucky from her boots; second, become a bona fide songwriter; and third, keep the truth hidden about her birth father from everyone in Nashville. Nowhere on that list is she supposed to land in bed with a sexy stranger who rescues her off the street at midnight, especially if that stranger is Shane Hart. Avery’s trying not to fall for the dreamy music producer who could make or break her career. But her best-laid plans seem to be no match for a love that feels like destiny.

Michel’s Review

Erin McCarthy has her mojo back.  Dream Maker is the second book in the Nashville Nights series.  It is a winner.  I liked this book much better than the first book in the series and felt that special blend of magic Erin always puts into her books.

Shane Hart rescues a damsel in distress.  The damsel in distress, Avery O’ Leary, was abandoned on the side of the road by her ex boyfriend.  Avery came to Nashville as an aspiring songwriter.  She also brought her secrets with her.  The last thing she wants is to seem like an optunist when music producer Shane Hart rescues her.  The problem is that she really likes Shane as a person.  She wants to be around this dynamic man.

Shane Hart is a great guy even though he is anti relationship.  His childhood left Shane scarred and fearful that he could not live up to commitment.  The heart wants what it wants and he is rethinking his views on relationships.

Shane and Avery have undeniable chemistry, the one thing that makes it even better is they both truly like one another.  Shane has to get over his issues and Avery has to get over her secret before they can move forward together.  They are connected in more ways than a budding friendship.

I truly enjoyed this book and felt the characters come alive off the pages.  It wasn’t loaded down with angst and strife.  It was a genuine romance.
