Release Day Blitz - Girl in Love by Caisey Quinn | #giveaway & #review

The highly anticipated conclusion to the Kylie Ryans series is 


Coming soon to iTunes and Kobo!


She's living her dream...

Kylie Ryans is the biggest thing to come out of Nashville since, well, since Trace Corbin. With a hit album and a powerful label behind her, she appears to be the girl who has it all.

But appearances can be deceiving.

Fresh out of rehab, Trace Corbin is ready to take on the world. Just not the girl he walked away from. Because if there's one thing he knows for certain, it's that the people you love are the ones who have the power to destroy you.

As their worlds collide, they'll have to make the ultimate choice. Follow their dreams, or give it all up for love.

They say love conquers all, but for Kylie and Trace, it just might wreck everything they've worked for.



“I don’t want to be involved in anyone’s game. Not his and not the label’s. That’s how I started out, and I’ve put it behind me. My career is about me. Not about him and not about whatever the label wants to spin us as. He and I are nothing and it’s going to stay that way.”
“He who?” Maude Lowenstein prompted. “If your feelings for him aren’t an issue, then how come you haven’t said his name? He’s not Voltemort, last I checked. Saying his name won’t conjure him out of thin air.”
Kylie resisted the urge to fold her arms and glare at the surprisingly sharp and callous woman in her late sixties. And to storm the hell out. She took a deep breath and shrugged.
“Trace. His name is Trace. And while I fully support his A Hand Up charity-thing, I have no interest in being involved in his benefit concert. I’ll donate a signed guitar or something. But I’m not going to it. I wasn’t even technically invited. We done here?”
She began to scoot out of the booth, but her manager reached out and put a hand on her arm.
“You were invited, Kylie. He’s having a hard time. The venue pulled out because of his rehab stay and so did some of his family-friendly sponsors. The event’s been moved to his property in Macon and his sister called me personally and invited you.”
He’s having a hard time.
The words wrapped around her heart and squeezed. Kylie swallowed and looked up at the ceiling. She sucked in a lungful of air and glanced from her agent to her manager.
“All I have to do is show up?”
The other two people at her table exchanged glances and Chaz cleared his throat.
“Um, not exactly. The label was hoping you and Trace would sing The Other Side of Me. On the tailgate of some truck that’s being donated to his charity.”
Kylie’s eyebrows shot up in surprise. “Why do they want us to sing it at some benefit? I don’t see how that would make any difference to them.”
“We don’t know for sure,” Maude answered. “But if I had to make an educated guess, I’d say they’re playing with the idea of sending you two on tour together. Again.”

My Review....

So I have mixed reviews on this because 1) I love this series and all things Trace Corbin and Kylie Ryans but for some reason in this book I wanted to throttle Kylie throughout most of the book for being so damn daft and stubborn.
"I'm still just a girl with a guitar, Tonya. Not much has changed except that people actually pay to hear me sing now."
Kylie thinks she is the same person but NOPE she has changed and maybe not for the better. This has nothing to do the the writing or the author but it is one of my biggest pet peeves lately when the majority of the storyline is one big ass assumption after assumption.

"He doesn't love me. Regardless of how I feel or felt about him, he never loved me." 

I wanted to pull out my hair or throw my kindle out so many times when either of them jumped to the wrong conclusion over and over and over again. 

 "Did you even listen to the lyrics to his song tonight? The whole damn thing was about how much he loves you..."

Then FINALLY they both get their heads out of their asses especially Kylie where her head was firmly planted, I'm finally loving it again and for all the reasons that I love this series but then wait for it..... Kylie does the unthinkable and jumps to another bloody conclusion WITHOUT waiting for an explanation and runs a friggin' again.

I think I read too many books which causes me to be jaded sometimes since I run into this particular storyline so much that it drives me mad. My husband asked my why if I get so frustrated do I keep reading it and my answer was simple because even with that frustration I still love the characters and the potential of a story and of course I am chasing for my HEA and once Kylie finally got her shit together I got it in spades.

This book is about the effect of Trace's choices of going to rehab and the aftermath of those choices.  Kylie and Trace are a hot dysfunctional mess individually but together they are something magical.  Trace so sold me this whole book. I have loved him through the whole series but this book by far showcases him and his awesomeness.  Where the first two books was about the hot head that is Kylie Ryans whom is strong and passionate and so full of love for music and all things Trace Corbin.  In these books she is the strong one while Trace is breaking and trying to heal and become the man he believes Kylie deserves.  In this book Trace is that man and then some where Kylie is now the broken one who needs a hand that only true love and music can help her.

This series is an emotional roller coaster about love and music featuring two very dysfunctional but beautiful characters who in the end get the HEA and success that they deserve.   Even though a big part of this particular storyline didn't jive with me I still loved the book, the series and the author.  In the end it is a definite must read for me.

4 Frustrating but still loved it thumbs up!
