Title: In the Lyrics
Author: Nacole Stayton
Publication Date: February 7, 2014
Hensley Bradley is the definition of the girl-next-door. She’s kindhearted, beautiful, and talented. Bored with her mundane life, thoughts of fleeing her small town begin to consume her. With aspiring dreams to use her voice as a one-way ticket, she suddenly discovers that music might not be her only passion.
After a fallout back home, Colby Grant decides to leave his family’s farm, determined to show his father he’s more than just a wanna-be country singer. With his All-American good looks, it doesn’t take long for girls in his new town to focus their eyes on him. But things aren’t what they appear from the outside, and it isn’t long until Colby feels he doesn’t fit into the perfect world that so quickly embraced him.
A chance encounter places Hensley in Colby’s path, but it isn’t her natural beauty that first captures his attention – it’s her voice.
When love and music mix, will the combination blossom into a beautiful melody or wither into a heart-wrenching tune?

First off I need to say that I absolutely adore Nacole Stayton!! Having met her is Vegas last year, I must say she is an absolute sweetheart and was such a pleasure to meet.  That being said, her sweetness comes through in this book.  It was a nice, sweet book.  Very innocent and heart warming.  Nacoles writing style always draws me in from the very beginning and I always want to read more.  This story however was not my favorite of hers .  I liked it but I think it was a little young for me. It was almost too sweet at times. Am  sorry I read it….absolutely not.  Would I recommend it….yes.  I liked it, I just didn’t love it.

Colby was an absolute doll.  I loved his character.  Perfect young southern gentlemen.  Hensley is a different story.  I liked her at first….I could see why she acted the way she did in the beginning and liked her.  Then she does something that totally ruined her for me.  I wanted to slap her silly at times.  And for the last half of the book I really did not like her.  But that is my personal opinion.  And then there is Dusty.  I loved him and would love to see a book about him.  I think he could have a great story.

All in all this is a good book.  Like I said I did like it, just not love it.

Excerpt 1

“Do you know the first thing that I noticed about you?”

         She shakes her head no.

“It was your confidence. I had just gotten to town and was going to grab a bite to eat and then call Dusty, but I saw this girl sitting on the street corner.”

                “I felt like you were staring holes in my head,” she says softly.

                “Truthfully, I was. Anyway, once you started to sing…it was like…ya know when your favorite song comes on the radio and you’re jammin’, listening to every word, your heads bobbin’, and you’re just feeling the music, but then your phone rings and you know it’s a call you can’t miss? There’s a split second where you debate on pressing forward to voicemail so you can finish the song, but you’ve been waiting for this call, so you turn down the radio knowing you’ll miss your favorite part just to answer it. It was like you were my favorite song, and I was forwarding my calls to voicemail. In that moment, I didn’t care who was standing around me. All I was worried about was tuning in to you, listening to your voice.”

                “I love you.” Those three simple words are spoken, and much to my amazement it’s Hensley that says them first.

                Clutching her face hard in my hands, I kiss her. I kiss her for being so darn dumb and insecure, for acting like a jealous girl, and more importantly, for loving me through it all.
