I received this e-book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
You'd Be Mine is full of swoon-worthy moments, country music, heart-wrenching scenes, great friendships, and some of the best, fun-loving characters a contemporary book can have!
You'd Be Mine has dual POVs. We go back and forth from Clay Coolidge and Annie Mathers perspective. I loved both of these characters from the get-go. They totally contrast each other and I love that. The character development of both these characters is done so perfectly.
One of my favorite things about this book is the friendships. Annie's band members add so much to this story. Kacey is her cousin/fiddler player and Jason is her best friend/drummer. They make the perfect trio. Clay has his best friend/fiddle player Fitz. He is always there when Clay needs him and seems to always know the right thing to say.
I love how country music is incorporated into this book. There are fictional country singers but sprinkled throughout the story are some of the greats in country music. It really made the story feel authentic.
Erin has an amazing talent of making you fully feel the atmosphere in this book. I always felt like I was actually with these characters where ever they were. And any emotion they felt, I felt right along with them.
I definitely recommend reading You'd Be Mine as soon as it hits shelves next spring. I also recommend listening to the playlist for this book. It's perfect. I loved listening to it while writing this up!
Clay Coolidge ~ I liked Clay immediately. He is a mega country singer who is only 18 years old and doesn't handle it the best He drinks and parties a lot. He has lots of baggage but it makes him who he is. The more the story progresses we learn more about why Clay acts the way he does. He is a really great character with great growth and is easy to love.
Annie Mathers ~ I love, love, love Annie! She is an amazing character who is so dang sweet. Annie is the daughter of two famous country singers who does not want to follow in their footsteps. One thing I love about Annie is even though she is super sweet, she has a sassy side and doesn't put up with just anything. I love how her character develops throughout the book and I know anyone who reads this book will fall in love with her!
Kacey Rosewood ~ Kacey is Annie's cousin, friend, and band member. She is a strong side character who is one fierce lady. I enjoyed all the scenes with her in it and wished I could hear her play that fiddle!
Jason Diaz ~ Jason is the drummer in the band and Annie's best friend. Jason was definitely an enjoyable character and such a great friend to Annie. I loved their friendship. He also was pretty funny.
Fitz Jacoby ~ Fitz is a close friend to Clay and band member. He also plays the fiddle like Kacey. He is such a great friend to clay and helps him as much as he can. He is always there for Clay even when Clay doesn't want him to be.
