Blurb from Goodreads:
Seattle is in the rearview mirror and Kenzie Daniels wants to start a new life to pursue her musical dreams in Nashville. But it’s harder than she thought trying to make it on her own with no one to rely on but herself. Until a handsome customer shows up at her table and changes the course of her future.
Remy Martins wasn’t looking for anything but a good time and a creative outlet when he stumbled upon Hank’s Diner and discovered his muse. The moment he laid eyes on Kenzie, the beautiful waitress with a chip on her shoulder, he knew his luck had turned around. He’d been in a writing slump for months and she was the spark he needed, breathing new life into his lyrics. Now Remy is determined to have Kenzie and keep her in his life.
When a chance run-in at one of his gigs has Kenzie leaning on him for support, Remy is given the opportunity to make her an offer she just can’t refuse.
Just as their relationship morphs into something more, fueling a deep physical need that neither of them can deny, Kenzie’s and Remy’s pasts collide - threatening to destroy their bond along the dreams they’d hoped to fulfill.
Can Kenzie rely on Remy to be there when she needs him the most? Will both their dark pasts ruin their chances at a bright future?

I am a sucker for romance. I admit it. Can we move on now?
I liked this book. It wasn't perfect due to some spelling and grammar mistakes that made it a bit hard to read but overall it was incredibly good and sweet.
I felt like I could relate to Kenzie's situation with Seth. A few years back similar things happened with my mom's ex-husband and I will not go into too much detail about that because it's still a sensitive subject for me.
The two main characters, Kenzie and Remy were both really amazing. I fell head-first in love with Remy the second I started reading and I remained in love with him throughout the entire book.
I feel like there is so much more I need to say about this but I literally can't. It wasn't one of those books that touched me deeply. It made me feel giddy and happy. Therefor, the four stars. I did enjoy it, I just didn't love it.
I was glad that Kenzie didn't decide to jump head-first into Remy's proposition. But I was still happy when she did after a while. I was also proud (???) - call it whatever you want - when she told him that sex was off limits. It gave us more perspective to what kind of character she was. Often in these kind of books, they jump straight into their friends with benefits relationship and it gets kinda predictable. But they didn't in this one and I'm happy about that.
Seth was mentally crazy, right? I wasn't the only one who noticed that? God, how I hated him and he reminded me way too much about my mom's ex-husband. Ugh.
The sex was steamy and I liked it. I guess after all that waiting it couldn't be anything else rather than steamy.
I feel like I need to write SO much more but I really, can't. There isn't that much I can comment and to try would just be unnecessary.
Thank you so much for reading, I'll talk to you next time. BYEEE
