Book Review: "Just Another Love Song" by Kerry Winfrey
“It’s a whole lot harder to pretend someone doesn’t exist when they’re standing right in front of you, wearing a thin gray t-shirt that clings to their chest and low slung jeans that are faded and ripped in all the right places.”
When they were in high school, Sandy and Hank dreamed of getting out of their small Ohio town of Baileyville and chasing their dreams together. Sandy was going to be an artist and Hank was going to be a musician. But when circumstances change that leave Sandy behind, she lets Hank go so he can succeed.
Fifteen years later, Sandy is still in Baileyville, running a business she loves and being highly involved in town activities. Hank is now a successful country singer, and when he returns home, it seems like everywhere Sandy turns, he is there, reminding her of what she could’ve had.
When it seems like Hank is interested in spending more time in Baileyville, it becomes harder and harder to ignore the chemistry that remains between them and the desire to try again. But what happens when Hank goes on tour again? Can Sandy leave the life that she has built or is it easier just to let him go again?
This is definitely a slow-burn romance, even though you know what will happen. But the supporting characters in this book are so fantastic that it almost doesn’t matter that it takes so long for Sandy and Hank to admit their feelings for one another.
I’m a huge fan of Kerry Winfrey’s books and she’s definitely an auto-buy author for me!! Many thanks to NetGalley and Berkley for an advanced copy of the book in exchange for an unbiased review.
