Amanda’s Review – Rising Star (Shooting Stars #1) by Terri Osburn

I’m so glad I fell in love with the cover for Rising Star because it introduced me to a new author and her wonderful writing style. ~ Amanda, Guilty Pleasures 

Can love survive the bright lights of fame?

A popular DJ at the hottest station in Nashville, Charley Layton is doing what she’s always wanted to do: living in the heart of country music. Charley puts her career first and relationships second, but when a charismatic stranger in a black cowboy hat invites her back to his place, she decides to give herself one night of no-strings fun.

But Dylan Monroe isn’t a no-strings kind of guy. Charley is beautiful, brainy, and brassy as hell—the kind of girl he’s always wanted. When his record label books him an interview on Charley’s show, he’s determined to find out why he woke up alone, and when he can see her again.

With Dylan now the most eligible bachelor in country music, Charley doubts their fling stands a chance, but she’s willing to try. Dylan dreams of fame, but he also craves a life offstage with Charley. Can he convince her that both of their dreams are worth chasing, and that love is still possible, even in the spotlight?

Can two career driven individuals meet and not expect to fall in love? That’s what happens when singer/songwriter Dylan Monroe meets radio DJ Charley Clayton. Charley is finally doing her dream job being a DJ at the hottest country station in Nashville. Dylan is getting a second chance at getting his singing career started again and is counting on Shooting Stars agency getting him there. When they meet at a bar and they spend the evening together they never would have thought that they would find that special one to fall in love with. Both would say that the timing was bad but maybe this was meant to be. With each new day they realize they might have a chance at making this work if they have a little faith and trust in each other.

Rising Star is a fun and enjoyable story that I finished in no time. The characters were well developed and the witty dialogue was smart and funny. Charley is a strong and independent woman who wasn’t going to let anyone sidetrack her from her job. Relationships came second and she tried to stay away from Dylan but his charm kept her seeing him again and again. Dylan was the perfect hero and I fell in love with him. He didn’t come on too strong and got to know her and what she liked and really cared for her. All the characters were interesting and added more to the developing romance. The romance that developed between Dylan and Charley developed fast but had its sweet moments and some very sexy times.

I’m so glad I fell in love with the cover for Rising Star because it introduced me to a new author and her wonderful writing style. The story was engaging and the characters very likeable. The secondary characters that were introduced were just as dynamic as the main characters and I hope to see them later. I can’t wait to read more from Terri Osburn and the next book of the Shooting Stars series.
