Blog Tour: Review and Giveaway for Ready to Reach (Nashville #1) by Inglath Cooper

I love stories featuring musicians and it was impossible not to fall in love with CeCe as she begins her journey in Nashville!

Ready to Reach by Inglath Cooper 
(Nashville #1) 
Publication date: October 4th 2012
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

Ever thought a dream might pass you by?
Nineteen-year old CeCe Mackenzie is determined to make her dreams come true. She heads for Nashville with not much more to her name than a guitar, a Walker Hound named Hank Junior and an old car she’d inherited from her grandma called Gertrude. But when Gertrude ends up on the side of I-40 in flames, Nashville has never seemed farther away. Help arrives in the form of two Georgia football players headed for the Nashville dream as well. When Holden Ashford and Thomas Franklin stop to offer CeCe and Hank Junior a ride, fate may just give a nod to serendipity and meant to be. Because while CeCe is chasing after her dream, she might find love as well.
New Adult Romance where “the characters are so alive you can almost hear them next to you.”


★★★★ stars

This story starts off with an explosion (literal) and just goes from there. I've got to say the beginning really caught my attention. I liked CeCe from the moment I met her. She's got guts going after her dreams. I liked how she was so strong even when the odds were stacked against her. She's proud, but not too stubborn to take help when it's offered. She's talented but humble and truly has a good heart. I loved her and Hank Jr., her dog. He was just so adorable. I loved how she cared for him and how much he meant to her.

I loved how the story wasn't just about CeCe and her journey to become an established musician, but also about the people she met along the way, in particular the two boys who stopped to help her when she was in need. I loved that they were also musicians but also great people. In a world where people could be cut throat, Thomas and Holden really didn't have to help CeCe, but they did, even if Holden totally resisted it at first.

The chemistry between CeCe and Holden is palpable, but not is as clear cut as they'd like it to be. I loved the sense of feeling that things aren't over between them yet. I also loved how once Holden got over being grouchy he was there for CeCe when she needed him.  This first part of the serialized novel is a great start. It has laughter, action, lots of emotion, and lots of chemistry. I have a feeling this is going to be a great story and I can't wait to read more.
