Dirty Little Secret by Jennifer Echols Blog Tour Stop

From the author of the “real page-turner” (Seventeen) Such a Rush comes an unforgettable new drama that follows friends-turned-lovers as they navigate the passions, heartbreaks, and intrigue of country music fame.
Dirty Little Secret Bailey wasn’t always a wild child and the black sheep of her family. She used to play fiddle and tour the music circuit with her sister, Julie, who sang and played guitar. That ended
 when country music execs swooped in and signed Julie to a solo deal. Never mind that Julie and Bailey were a duet, or that Bailey was their songwriter. The music scouts wanted only Julie, and their parents were content to sit by and let her fulfill her dreams while Bailey’s were hushed away.
Bailey has tried to numb the pain and disappointment over what could have been. And as Julie’s debut album is set to hit the charts, her parents get fed up with Bailey’s antics and ship her off to granddad’s house in Nashville. Playing fiddle in washed-up tribute groups at the mall, Bailey meets Sam, a handsome and oh-so-persuasive guitarist with his own band. He knows Bailey’s fiddle playing is just the thing his band needs to break into the industry. But this life has broken Bailey’s heart once before. She isn’t sure she’s ready to let Sam take her there again…

I loved books about music and bands, so Dirty Little Secret sounded great! Unfortunately, I was let down when I read Such a Rush last year, so I tried my best to go into Dirty Little Secret with no expectations. I ended up loving this so much more and each page was filled with awesome.

Bailey was a character pretty closed off from the world. She had a pretty lame job and most of the first part of the book involved her pitying herself. Although that would sometimes rag on my nerves, with her I understood where it was coming from. Her parents were so unfair towards her. She ended up growing on me over the course of the book. 

The guy, Sam, was amazing in his own way. I loved his determination towards Bailey and how confident he was. The music group Bailey’s a part of had such an interesting group of people and the plot flowed so smoothly. Also, the relationship between Bailey and Sam was a big part of the plot and they were both so great together. They brought out the best in one another, for sure. There was definitely a steamier part to their relationship, but the emotional connection they shared was so sweet.

The writing was great and as of now, I’m a fan of Jennifer Echols, lol ;) I’m looking forward to see what other books she puts out. The music industry and the relationships all the characters shared in Dirty Little Secret were great.  It told a great story and a fun, fast plot with a more serious side and an awesome romance! I’d give it 4 out of 5 flowers.
There's also a great giveaway! :)
