20 Books Of Summer – Book 1 – You’d Be Mine

Well here is the first book from my summer challenge! Whilst I finished this one within a few days of the challenge starting I haven’t had a chance to sit and write a proper review. Things are looking to be going good on the reading front at the moment, lets hope they continue that way…


Annie Mathers is America’s sweetheart and heir to a country music legacy full of all the things her Gran warned her about. Superstar Clay Coolidge is most definitely going to end up one of those things.

But unfortunately for Clay, if he can’t convince Annie to join his summer tour, his music label is going to drop him. That’s what happens when your bad boy image turns into bad boy reality. Annie has been avoiding the spotlight after her parents’ tragic death, except on her skyrocketing YouTube channel. Clay’s label wants to land Annie, and Clay has to make it happen.

Swayed by Clay’s undeniable charm and good looks, Annie and her band agree to join the tour. From the start fans want them to be more than just tour mates, and Annie and Clay can’t help but wonder if the fans are right. But if there’s one part of fame Annie wants nothing to do with, it’s a high-profile relationship. She had a front row seat to her parents’ volatile marriage and isn’t interested in repeating history. If only she could convince her heart that Clay, with his painful past and head over heels inducing tenor, isn’t worth the risk.

Erin Hahn, is a debut author and I was thrilled when I was contacted about reading this book as I always love to find new authors to shake my reading up. Whilst my go to genre is usually crime after reading the blurb I really fancied a bit of romance for a change.

Our two main characters are both struggling for different reasons. Clay in my opinion found fame too young and succumbed to the pressures we usually see in teen fame whilst Annie is doing everything in her power to avoid making the same mistakes her parents did. She is also trying to make her mark in the music industry with her parent’s (particularly her mum’s) reputation to live up to.

From the start it is clear that this is a good old boy meets girl romance and there is nothing wrong with that. Yes some of the storylines were a bit predictable but I still enjoyed this story and found myself intrigued to read the next chapter, which for me is a sign of a good book. The inclusion of the song lyrics is original and in my opinion, added more depth to the story. I also liked that the story was told from both Annie and Clay’s point of view rather than it being one sided.

Whilst our two main characters are important I felt the Hahn had done a great job of making the sub characters integral to the story. Fitz, Jason and Lacey each provided support, advice and a lot of love and without them I don’t know if the story would of had the same flow or enjoyment.

Overall I enjoyed the read and shall add Erin Hahn to my list of authors to look out for. This is the perfect summer holiday read and I found it hard to fault it, which is why I am giving it 4*’s.

Book 1 done only 19 to go…
