I really should know better by now. Novellas are short and you can read them quickly. The problem for me is when the author does such a good job grabbing you, making you eager to know what happens next, that I often am not ready for the story to be over when it is. Well, Margo Bond Collins does a great job telling the story of Cole Greyson, country star and Kylie Andrews, owner of a little Fort Worth store in Taming the Country Star.
Cole and Kylie met over one year ago in Mexico. Cole was trying to get away from it all and Kylie was on what was to be her honeymoon. The two shared a great time together but Kylie was blindsided when she learned Cole’s true identity, and it wasn’t from him.
Kylie was used to the public life as her father was a known rodeo figure. She saw the negative impact that life had on her family and she wants nothing to do with it. So when Cole ends up performing back in Fort Worth, and she, to her dismay, is front and center at that show, everything changes. It seems neither of them really got over their time together in Mexico and Cole is determined to make things right.
This story was great. I really enjoyed both of the characters and I enjoyed how Collins was able to put so much into just over one hundred pages. This book contains funny moments, drama, and some awesome chemistry. Definitely worth the read.

About the Book:
He’ll do anything to win her heart. She’ll do anything to keep him away.
Country star Cole Grayson is in town, and Kylie Andrews is less than thrilled. As if months of changing the radio station and tearing down his posters weren’t bad enough, now she has to deal with a town of fans swarming toward the man who deceived her the year before. But when Kylie’s eyes meet Cole’s again, she can’t deny the electric chemistry that drew her to him the first time around.
Cole Grayson is on a mission. Ever since Kylie left him, he hasn’t been able to forget her sweet country smile. After writing a song just for her, he sets off for her hometown to prove he’s not the player she thinks he is. But as much as Cole can’t forget her, Kylie wonders if she can forgive him…
