My rating: 5 of 5 stars
*I received an ARC from the publisher for an honest review*
TUNED INTO YOU by Cindy Dorminy is a cute summer romance complete with music, horses, softball, and adorable characters. Abe and Lydia aren’t always likable. They aren’t always perfect. They mess up. They say and do the wrong things, but they’re human, and that’s part of the charm I find so endearing about this book.
One of the things I most enjoyed is how Abe and Lydia are thrown together to work out their punishment on Abe’s family farm. They’re complete opposites with preconceived notions about one another, and though the romantic tension is on slow burn, it’s so much fun to watch them go through their paces testing one another and trying to find each others’ buttons.
The Nashville, Tennessee, setting is just perfect for this story. They don’t have to go off to New York or Hollywood to have a brush with fame. Abe is a hot, young country singer who got his start on a popular music show, and he lives in the heart of country music. The author is familiar with this area, and she does a great job incorporating it into the story. It’s more than a setting; it’s almost a character itself.
If you like Sarah Dessen’s flirty, fun summer romances, you’ll love TUNED INTO YOU.
