In the Lyrics Blog Tour: Review + Giveaway

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?

At first, I was sorta apprehensive about this book. It seemed like your typical, boy meets girl, they fall in, and everybody achieves their dreams and gets a happily ever after. But In the Lyrics is so much more than that.

Hensley has always felt pressure from her mom to become a country music star. Sure, Hensley loves singing and playing guitar and this is her dream too, but her mother sometimes makes her feel unwanted as her pregnancy with Hensley is what ended her career. Still, Hensley will do anything to achieve her dream, even leaving behind her boyfriend and best friend.

Colby just wants to escape his home riddled with memories. Memories of his brother and his now alcoholic father. So Colby heads to Nashville where he's most likely to become a country star. There he meets Hensley, his new roommate's best friend. And while Colby yearns for stardom, he has limits, like being close to the people he loves.

I absolutely fell in love with Colby and Hensley on their journey. It definitely wasn't easy for them. I loved that Hensley became a star, but everything wasn't fine and dandy after that, there was a lot of things she needed to realize about herself. The person she grew to be journey the book was sometimes someone I hated, but in the end, was someone I admired.

I hope you'll enjoy In the Lyrics as much as I did.
