When you have the opportunity of a lifetime, what would you do?


Two worlds, 4,000 miles apart. Is their love strong enough to keep them together?

Rachel Hardy dreams of being a successful country music singer in Nashville’s Music City, four thousand miles away from her lonely life in Dorset.

But when she starts to fall in love with Jackson, the stakes suddenly get higher and she finds herself with a great big dilemma on her hands. Should she abandon her dream and take the easy way out or should she leave the life she has always known behind and take a gamble on a man who has personal demons of his own?

Follow Rachel and Jackson as they learn to trust in love again to see whether their music really can unite them.

My review

Rachel lives in Dorset, but her big dream is becoming a famous country music singer. So together with Matt and Sam she form the band ‘Three’s Company’ and go to one gig after the other.
Encouraged after a meeting with Jackson Phillips, she decides to participate to a nationwide ‘Open Mic’ competition.
Rachel and Jackson see each other more often, and they soon realize there are feelings surfacing that are hard to resist.
When then Rachel finds out that Jackson is not just a simple American man in Dorset for a wedding, but a record label owner living in Nashville, she’s not sure of what to do: follow Jackson to Nashville, trying to realize her dream of becoming famous, and give their love a chance? Or just be happy with her current life and just singing at gigs with Matt and Sam?

I didn’t know what really to expect from this book, but I was pleasantly surprised!

What would you do if you have the opportunity of a lifetime? But going for it, would mean to leave everything you know behind…
Rachel is having this chance, but it’s logical that she is doubting every decision… is it the right thing to do? What if she’s not that good and her career never lifts off? And is being in a relationship with Jackson also the correct thing to do? Because Jackson is not the only one in love with her, so is Sam, who has always been there for her…

Once Rachel takes this leap of faith and goes to Nashville, she finds everything is harder than expected.
Jackson has his own demons and Rachel feels he is not being totally honest. How can their relationship succeed?

The emotions and doubts are so real and recognizable. Putting your complete trust in someone you do not know that long, can be terrifying. Having a relationship is already not the easiest thing, but when you are not at the place you once called your home, it’s even more difficult.

Both Rachel and Jackson are struggling with trust issues, and together they have to find a way to find the so much required unconditional trust…

This is the story of Rachel and Jackson, but while I was reading this beautiful story, somehow I kept feeling sorry for Sam… the love of his life is moving to another continent with another man… But I hope that he also will find his better half!

It’s a beautiful story about taking a leap of faith, chasing dreams, daring to trust and love!
