Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Jonte Williamson has a dream: become Nashville’s next big star. Finding herself unexpectedly homeless hot off the plane wasn’t part of her grand plan.
Cash Bellini is a simple man: he loves his twin sister, Dolly, hates country music, and stays far away from anything more complicated than that.
When Jonte stumbles into Cash’s bar, helping out the homeless country music wannabe is the last thing on his agenda. Pity someone forgot to send the memo to his too-big heart and meddling twin. Throw in a pair of baby blue cowboy boots, a pool table and a splash of tequila, and these two are set to ignite in a hot sexy mess! Will either of their hearts survive the tug-o-war between what they want and what they need?

Lena lives in Melbourne, Australia with her husband and three daughters. She completed a MA in Writing in 2013 and has been working on a New Adult series based in Nashville. The first book in the series, Something I Need, was a 2014 RWA Contemporary Romance Stiletto finalist in the New Adult category.
In early 2015, Lena and her family spent 5 weeks road tripping across the US. It was an amazing once in a lifetime family holiday and research for her debut series all rolled into one!
Lena is an avid reader, especially in the New Adult genre. She is a mad Colleen Hoover, Samantha Young and KA Tucker fan, and is more than a little bit in love with Becca and Krista Richie’s Addicted series, Jay Crownover’s Marked Men series and Kylie Scott’s Stage Dive series.
5***** Great standalone novel
I love discovering new authors and this talented one was a pleasant surprise. I also liked the fact that I was able to read the first book in a series that looks so promising. If you, like me aren’t a fan of cliffhangers, don’t worry. This is a standalone. However, you’ll be introduced to so many great characters you’ll want to know more about them. I can’t wait for the next installment.
Lena Lowe’s debut novel has it all: laugh-out-loud comedy, heart-warming romance, soul-searching drama, and great music. She also does a great job with characters’ development and background story; the plot is engaging and realistic; and the writing style is brilliant. What’s there not to like?
I recommend this book for readers looking for a talented new voice in an old and sometimes repetitive genre such as contemporary romance.
