Book Review

A Review of Macon by Marie James – NOW AVAILABLE

Cover Design: TE Black Designs

Release Date: September 14, 2017




Tossing a middle finger to Macon, Georgia as I made my way to Nashville was always the dream. Sing country music, go on tour, top the charts—with my popularity growing every day, I was on my way.

But then a gust of wind blew up your skirt, and those white cotton panties had me hooked. I didn’t know your name, and you turned down every attempt I tried to throw your way. But I knew you were different, even though you told me I was the same.

“Friends” is what you offered, and I played by your rules, but, Adelaide Hatfield, you have to know, from that day, it was only you.

I just hope I can make you see how much you mean to me before we both drown in the sorrow of what heartbreak can truly be.

My Thoughts

This was my first book by Marie James but I have heard and read great reviews on her books so I was going in without any expectations other than it would be a good read. I read the synopsis and it sounded like it was going to be a roller coaster of emotions and I was not disappointed at all.

I don’t know which character frustrated me more – Axton or Addi. I tried not to get upset while reading this but both of them kept coming up with reasons, or causing reasons, of why they couldn’t be together when we all knew they were meant to be. Axton gave up to easily and Addi was being stubborn. Ok not really but when you’re rooting for a couple to get past their personal reservations it makes it hard not to get frustrated. That’s how good this author’s writing was – I was so emotionally invested in this couple that there were moments when I thought they weren’t going to make it that I was close to tears.

If you want to read a book that will grab your attention at page one and keeps it til the end, with a super sexy up and coming country singer & a sweet young girl who catches the playboys attention, this is a great book for you!
