Loving Dallas

Finished Loving Dallas by Caisey Quinn.  I received a copy from the publisher for review.

Summary (from Goodreads):

In the second novel in bestselling author Caisey Quinn’s Neon Dreams series, a country rock band and its members embark on the rocky road to fame and find love along the way.

Dallas Lark is so close to achieving his dream of making it big in country music that he can taste it. Arriving in Nashville after signing with sexy, successful manager Mandy Lantram, his life goes from tragedy and turmoil to one lucky break after another—except it isn’t really luck because Dallas has sacrificed everything for his career, leaving behind his band, sister, best friend, and high school sweetheart, Robyn, in the pursuit of fame.

Robyn Breeland is a successful marketing coordinator and promotions specialist for a thriving liquor distributor out of Texas. She loves every aspect of her job: coming up with new ideas, traveling, hosting promotional parties and exclusive events—until it brings her face-to-face with the man who broke her heart, prompting her to erect a steel cage around it.

When their paths collide and they’re forced to work together, Dallas and Robyn realize that the old spark they thought they’d extinguished might still be a burning flame.”

Okay, so I am officially obsessed with this series. (I loved Leaving Amarillo, the first book in the series, and this one was even better.  I cannot wait for the third/last book, Missing Dixie.  It’s out in October, and that is so far away.)

I didn’t get much of a sense of Dallas in the first book (not surprisingly, because it’s Dixie and Gavin’s story) and what I did see of Dallas, I didn’t particularly like.  Fortunately, he overcame that almost immediately in this book.

And I LOVE ROBYN.  It’s so obvious that they’re meant to be, and that circumstances (pride and a refusal to talk openly with each other—which makes sense, because they were so young at the time) kept them apart.  And now they’re older and wiser and better…and, yes, hotter.  So basically, OH THIS BOOK. :)

I also want to point out that this book is basically a bridge between Dixie and Gavin’s story, and there is a development for them in this book that I do not like. I’m trying to give Gavin the benefit of the doubt, but I just want this new book so I know what’s going on.

Highly recommended.
