If Can't Let Her Go Were a Country Song, I'd Play it On Repeat! (Review)

In Nashville the music is louder, the dreams are bigger, and love can bring a cowboy to his knees.

Ethan Walker is Nashville royalty. Born to the King and Queen of Country Music, he's spent his life trying to escape the spotlight of his parents' fame, even walking away from his own promising singing career. He's the kind of cowboy who prefers flannel to flashbulbs, hay fields to hit records, and the solitude of his horse farm to the nightlife along Music Row. The last thing he wants is attention, especially when it comes from country's latest star...

Chelsea Harris's meteoric rise up the charts and string of celebrity boyfriends mean that wherever she goes, the paparazzi follow. A duet with Nashville's favorite son is exactly what her new charity album needs, but when she approaches Ethan, he turns her down flat. To win the camera-shy cowboy over, Chelsea will have to approach him on his terms. Trouble is, the more time she spends on his farm, the more Ethan wants to keep her there.

Sandy James writes to country music fans in Can't Let Her Go, the second book of the Nashville Dreams series. Chelsea Harris is putting together an album of duets to raise money for cancer research. Ethan Walker, partial owner of Words & Music and son of the King and Queen Country Music, would be the perfect addition to the album. However, much to Chelsea's disappointment he refuses to sing with her.

Chelsea devises a plan to get closer to Ethan but instead gets pulled into his orbit. As they bond over horses, Ethan allows Chelsea in bit by bit. Chelsea is a world class star and Ethan wants nothing to do with paparazzi and the limelight. On the outside it's like the two of them are the perfect match, except for Ethan's distrust of celebrities and their lifestyle. Ethan is a bit stuck in the past in regard to his experience with the press, but that doesn't keep him away from the top country music star who is open with her fans and stays on top of rumors from the press.

Through misunderstandings and genuine personal revelations, Chelsea and Ethan try to work towards a real and honest relationship. I love how these two put their hearts on the line even though they are at first unwilling to change for one another. To see them move past their insecurities and find what really is at the heart of their fears, and then deal with those fears, is amazing to witness throughout the novel.

Can't Let Her Go is a fun romance filled with passion and devastatingly real characters. Chelsea and Ethan have opened my eyes to a type of romance that I'll be seeking more of in the future!
