In the second novel in bestselling author Caisey Quinn’s Neon Dreams series, a country rock band and its members embark on the rocky road to fame and find love along the way.
Dallas Lark is so close to achieving his dream of making it big in country music that he can taste it. Arriving in Nashville after signing with sexy, successful manager Mandy Lantram, his life goes from tragedy and turmoil to one lucky break after another—except it isn’t really luck because Dallas has sacrificed everything for his career, leaving behind his band, sister, best friend, and high school sweetheart, Robyn, in the pursuit of fame.
Robyn Breeland is a successful marketing coordinator and promotions specialist for a thriving liquor distributor out of Texas. She loves every aspect of her job: coming up with new ideas, traveling, hosting promotional parties and exclusive events—until it brings her face-to-face with the man who broke her heart, prompting her to erect a steel cage around it.
When their paths collide and they’re forced to work together, Dallas and Robyn realize that the old spark they thought they’d extinguished might still be a burning flame.
Caisey Quinn, WHYYYYYY? Loving Dallas is raw as hell and it left me lying on the ground. I felt the pain, and all the emotions, Robyn and Dallas were feeling. I was with them throughout the story and felt like I was part of it. It was definitely something different from what I usually read. It was a second-chance romance but it felt like so much more. Like those once-in-a-lifetime loves and because of that factor, its meaning was a punch to the gut and ten times more powerful.
Things that I loved:
- The strong love and emotions that these two had for each other.
- The whole rockstar thing Dallas had going. I haven’t read a lot of books about singers/artists like that (if I remember correctly- maybe I haven’t read one at all), and it was interesting to see the kind of life they had and how it all goes on the road. All the obstacles Dallas had to face and all he wanted out of it.
- The ups and downs Dallas and Robyn had to go through.
- Dixie Lark.
- Plot twist after plot twist. Thank you very much, Caisey!
Some things that I didn’t like:
- Sometimes Dallas acted really douchey and I felt myself cringe internally. (This is pretty much why I put 4 stars)
- Their fights were so hurtful at times and I was so afraid of them not going back to one another and that they would just end everything.
- ….That’s pretty much it. All the other stuff I loved and liked and adored.
I’m CRAVING Missing Dixie. I need my fix of this and I can’t wait for the actual book. *eeep*
