Macon by Marie James Blog Tour

Today we have the blog tour for Macon by Marie James! Check it out and grab your copy today!

Title: Macon

Author: Marie James

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Tossing a middle finger to Macon, Georgia as I made my way to Nashville was always the dream. Sing country music, go on tour, top the charts—with my popularity growing every day, I was on my way. But then a gust of wind blew up your skirt, and those white cotton panties had me hooked. I didn’t know your name, and you turned down every attempt I tried to throw your way. But I knew you were different, even though you told me I was the same. “Friends” is what you offered, and I played by your rules, but, Adelaide Hatfield, you have to know, from that day, it was only you. I just hope I can make you see how much you mean to me before we both drown in the sorrow of what heartbreak can truly be.

Get Your Copy Today!

Here I go again getting out of my comfort zone.
I am a picky reader. 
I stick to themes/tropes I know.
Romance is a huge one. 
What I am not interested in is Country guys/cowboys.
Look don't get all SAY WHAT BUT THEY'RE THE BEST.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion, it's just the ones I have read,
didn't do anything to help the cause.

Yes, there have been some that made me want to read more and then I did and I was like yup this is why I don't read these tropes.
My reason for not exactly liking the whole country vibe.....
I can't relate.
At all.
Guys in tight jeans who work on farms do nothing for me.
BUT, I wanted to test the waters (again)...
after reading another book about a country singer dude, 
I was like maybe just maybe I can find another book that 
will leave me wanting more like the previous book.

Boy oh, BOY am I glad I found this one.
Macon was everything I had hoped it would be.
The romance was great.
The characters were engaging.
The writing style had me flying through this book.
You all know I love me some push and pull 
and this author nailed it!

Axton Lane is a guy on a mission.
He wants to be the next big star and 
wants to leave Macon behind.
Meanwhile, Addi, is the good girl, 
the MaryAnne (Gilligans island reference)
the preacher's daughter who is focused on school 
because all she wants is to carve her own path. 

One different than what her parents want. (Ya know like most kids)
Addi is the type of character I like.
She is not a whiny heroine.
She is the type that will try to do everything by herself.
When she meets Axton she knows he's just like every other guy.
But is he?
I loved that he was able to bring things out in her that others couldn't.
Of course Axton is a playboy.
I get it, but Addi brings out the softer side of him.

Now I am no country fan so I don't know who Sam Hunt is
but from stalking the author's page I found that he's her muse for this story.
So if you like country and know who Sam Hunt is then this is 
the perfect story for you.

I was not disappointed and I don't think you will be either!
