Review for Chasing Dreams by Nicole Edwards

Chasing Dreams 
Nicole Edwards
Series: Devil's Bend
Rating: 4.5 Stars

Buy Now: Amazon Link

Cooper Krenshaw knows what it’s like to feel the bright lights upon him, the sound of the crowd roaring when he walks on stage; after all, he happens to be one of the biggest names in country music at the moment. And he has knowingly just dropped off the grid. The first decision he has made on his own in quite some time. Cooper only thought he was looking for a challenge when he walked off of that concert stage in Chicago. After finding himself in Devil’s Bend, Texas, he soon realizes that the dream he’s been chasing might not be the one he was after all along.

Now he’s found himself not only starting over in a new town, but he’s pretty sure he’s met the toughest challenge of his life... she just happens to be an angel in blue jeans.

Tessa Donovan hasn’t been the best of friends with Fate for quite some time now. Owning and operating The Rusty Nail, a small bar in her hometown of Devil’s Bend, has been enough to keep her going through the motions of her life. But it’s the only thing she’s got. After losing her husband fifteen short months after they were married, Tessa has spent the last four years chasing dreams in order to maintain her sanity. Only those dreams are soon ripped right out of her grasp by a sexy country music star who claims he descended on her small town by accident.

Coincidence? Or has Fate stepped in once again? Whatever the case, Tessa knows the handsome cowboy might get to overtake her dreams, but she’s bound and determined that he won’t take her heart.


I am a huge fan of Nicole Edwards other series Club Destiny and Alluring Indulgence, actually Rebecca recommended them to me.  However, the Devil’s Bend Series is very different from the other series. It is a Contemporary Romance, but there are still steamy scenes, that are very hot. I was a little scared going in that I may not like Chasing Dreams like I like the others, but like always Nicole Edwards does not disappoint! With all of her books and characters, I feel myself getting heavily invested in their stories and cannot but the books down (finished this within a day).

The story takes place in Devil’s Bend, Texas. Tessa Donovan is a widower, a middle sister to two brothers, and owner of the Rusty Nail bar. As a teenager Tessa was wild and made bad choices. She believes that everything bad that happens to her later on in life, which is a lot, is because of her past actions. Tessa has a hard time trusting and opening up to others because of her past experiences. She is also afraid to let anything good into her life for a fear of losing it. Copper Krenshaw is a famous country singer, who is unhappy where his career and life are at and with his management. After a concert in Chicago he decides to take off and ends up in Texas, having a college roommate Adam, one of Tessa’s brothers, that lives in Texas he reaches out to him. Adam gets Cooper to preform at the Rusty Nail. This is where Cooper and Tessa first meet and there is an immediate attraction on both sides. Tessa fights the attraction and constantly tries to run away but Cooper keeps trying to break her down. Both characters have a hard time opening up to others and trusting them because they were both burned in the past. Can they learn to open and give love a chance?

Not only were the main characters very likeable, but the supporting characters were too, and I can't wait for them to get their own books. Looking forward to Dalton's book.
