Release Day Blitz with Review: Can’t Walk Away by Sandy James

In Nashville the stars shine a little brighter, songs sound a little sweeter, and love lasts a lifetime.

Young, rich, and better looking than a man has a right to be, successful songwriter Brad “Hitman” Maxwell was once Nashville’s biggest celebrity. Then a heartbreaking loss and a shocking betrayal caused his light to go out. Now, instead of pouring his soul into song, he pours beers at Words & Music. His bar is the perfect escape–a place to forget his past–until the night she takes the stage…

Savannah Wolf used to dream of becoming Nashville’s hottest star. Now, as a young single mom, she dreams of a steady income and being home to tuck her daughter into bed. So when Brad Maxwell offers her the gig of a lifetime–playing as the headliner at Words & Music–Savannah discovers the best of both worlds. And she refuses to ruin this opportunity by falling for her sexy boss. Except that Brad suddenly starts writing music again… music inspired by her.

My Review

Unexpected. Sweet. Sexy. Down Right Heartwarming. Those are the words that I’d choose to describe Can’t Walk Away.

Can’t Walk Away follows the story of Brad and Savannah. Once upon a time, Brad was one of Nashville’s biggest stars. That was until life threw him an unexpected curve ball, taking all if his passion with him. Now instead of writing and singing music, he finds himself tending bar, trying to escape the pain of the past. All is going the way that Brad has planned…that is until Brad meets Savannah…Savannah always dreamed of singing for a crowd, but being a single mom has kept that one dream out of her reach. So, when Brad offers Savannah her golden opportunity, she can’t help but jump at the chance. The only problem, her scorching hot chemistry with Brad. She tells herself not to fall for him, but that might just prove to be easier said than done….

Overall, I thought Can’t Walk Away was a quick and easy read. I thought the characters were likable and couldn’t wait to get into their story. I loved the pull between Brad and Savannah. Brad had the worst reputation, but you could tell that there was more to this bad boy than meets the eye, he’s just got to open his heart and mind to it. I liked that Brad took things slow with Savannah. Yes, their pull was undeniable, but I enjoyed seeing these two get to know one another and ease their way into something more.

Can’t Walk Away was unexpected in the best way. This story is well written and is one that you can easily finish in just one sitting. I thought this story had just the right mix of sweet and sexy with a little drama along the way. This is my first book by this author, and I look forward to checking more of her books in the future.
