Summary

He's a country superstar; she's a small town waitress. When the real world slams into their stolen dream, whose heart will be the one to break?

From NYT and USA Today best-selling Texas romance author Jean Brashear, a new and emotional Sweetgrass Springs story...

Jeanette Carson has been a fixture as a waitress in Ruby's Cafe ever since high school. Walker Roundtree is country music's brightest star, known by all for his laid-back charm and irresistible appeal to the opposite sex. Ever since his first visit to Sweetgrass Springs, there have been verbal fireworks between him and Jeanette as she proved to be the only woman immune to his charm.

Now their paths have crossed in the outside world, and they're seeing each other in a new light. Fireworks of a very different sort are sparking the sky - but then Walker's world is upended by a tragedy, and the only one who steps in to help him is the very woman who swore never to put herself at his mercy. For a few days, they have only each other to rely upon, and these two lonely hearts find refuge in each other.

But all too soon, the real world demands its due, and their refuge is no longer private. The days of dreaming, the nights of yearning and hope face the harsh light of reality, and the only question is:

Whose heart will be the one to break?

Includes an original love song, "Never Forever", written and performed especially for this story by Eric Dove.

Walker+Jeanette=Fireworks!

I loved “Texas Charm”. Jean Brashear has a gift of being an awesome writer. When I start a story I am instantly wanting more. They are page-turners and/or hard to stop audibles. Jeanette, small town waitress turned big city fashion designer was a pleasant surprise to heart throb, Walker Roundtree. He saw her in fashionable clothes and certainly liked what he saw! Walker frequently showed up in small town, Sweetgrass Springs for charitable functions and to perform at his friends weddings. When he’d seen Jeanette, it was usually at Ruby’s Diner, where she worked as a waitress for many years. And she was never dressed as he’d seen her in the big city. She was there to design wardrobes for stars. Jeanette was missing Sweetgrass Springs. And wasn’t in her comfort zone in the big city. Walker and Jeanette navigated through life’s unexpected events. One of the life’s curve balls involved Walkers’ young niece, Maisie. She lost her Mom and Walker was next of kin to look after her. He loved her so much, but he had obligations to his Tour, - to his “entourage” and his fans. He employed many people and could not let them
down, yet he also felt very responsible for his sweetheart of a niece who just lost her parent.
To find out how the story unfolds, I highly recommend this book. I know I’ll be listening to this story again.
I received a complimentary copy of this audible and choose to leave an honest review.

Love Eric G. Dove's Narration!!!

This was a first for me in my Audiobook journey. Not only was the narration awesome as usual, but the narrator played guitar AND sang a song. I think I read that he also wrote the song.

This narrator has great material to work with when narrating a Jean Brashear book, but he brings the characters to life! Whether the character is male , female, old, young, or a child, Eric covers all of the bases and never takes me out of the flow of the story as he changed from one character to another. I was thinking as I listened to this book that his narrator voice (reading background info, etc.) is even different from his character voices.

Although Jeanette and Walker completely frustrated me at times, I loved this book. It made me smile. When I read the last page, I was sorry it was over, but I was still smiling.

Walker and "Nettie" both had fears that kept them from communicated. They would get right to that point, and either be interrupted, or pull away from the conversation.

Walter's niece, Maisie, was the sweetest thing and the cause of many of the smiles in this book. I am a real sucker for a romance novel with little kids in it.

Let's not forget the Sweetgrass Springs family. Supportive family, friends, and neighbors who provide love, friendship, advice, and loyalty to each other.

The only person I didn't like in this book was Dusty, Walker's manager. But, both Walker and Jeanette are better people than me. Lol.

I definitely recommend this book. It was hard to review it without giving away too much, and but still trying to convey how much I really enjoyed it.

I voluntarily listened to and reviewed this audio book received from the author.

Walker & Jeanette

Walker and Jeanette are from two different worlds but they could have something huge together. Walker is focused on his career, and he overlooks having a life outside performing. Jeanette does not want to stand in his way of the wandering life he continuously says he wants. I loved the concert and Eric did an awesome job narrating.

THERE'S A SONG...with guitar!!!

Oh my goodness! Jean Brashear did it again. She is one of my most favorite authors for reading and audio. She writes well with great storylines and characters one just has to fall in love with. She has consistently given us a beautiful world to escape into when taking a break from our own.

In this audio/book, Jeanette finally got her story! And it was a beautiful one. I'm so excited that it was Walker Roundtree that stole her heart. Somehow I missed that before now. But that's okay, I'll just go reread/listen to them again to see if/when I missed any hinting.

Eric Dove brought the book to life with his narration. He is SO GOOD at narrating. AND HE SINGS! Well done, Eric Dove. Well Done. He has such a smooth voice.

And this part of my review will be a first. Walker (Eric Dove) SINGS a song WITH guitar in this book. It was well done! I'm unsure who wrote the music and who's playing the guitar, but they get a standing ovation as well.

Captivating!

I found this book captivating from beginning to end. I fell in love with Walker right from the start. Jeanette has been an intriguing character in many of the Sweetgrass stories and it is wonderful to finally read her story and have her get her HEA. She has been a bit of a curmudgeon in a lot of the stories but she drew me in and had me wishing that she would find love and a rewarding & enjoyable way to use her talents. As usual Jean Brashear weaves a wonderful story and keeps us hooked to her series! Looking forward to the next book.
Eric Dove outdoes himself narrating this book. One of the highlights of the book was when Walker sang the song he wrote for Jeanette. I cried listening to it and had to pause the book until I got myself together so I wouldn't miss what happened next. Eric’s voice is rich and melodic, and so pleasant to listen to. He is a talent unto himself and I will definitely be searching out his music. What an amazing combination these two make…Jean Brashear and Eric Dove…what else could you ask for in an audiobook…simply perfect!
