Back to country music! What is it about Rock Fiction featuring country stars that I like so much? This one’s got the added benefit of also being a movie star. Talented dude!

Four years after Roman Kincaid was catapulted into stardom as a country-western singer and A-list movie star, he is burned out: exhausted by a grueling schedule, drained by the ceaseless demands of producers and managers, weary of meeting the needs of others at the expense of his own. Leaving a sold-out show in Phoenix, he rents a car and drives north and east, landing in the Painted Desert town of Rainbow Rock.

Nearly three years after leaving her old life behind, Lottie Beale is feeding people and baking pies, managing the Kachina Café and tending secrets of her own. When circumstances conspire to give two attractive people some time alone together amid the world-class vistas of the Four Corners, they discover more than either had bargained for.

I don’t even want to think about the shitstorm this guy just stirred up by walking out on a sold-out show. I really hope he waited until the end ’cause baby? That’s one ugly scene I don’t even want to go near — but if it needs to happen, I want to see our buddy Roman deal with it. Because baby, you made that mess? You fix it. We don’t see that often enough, I don’t think.

Beyond that, this sounds like … a typical romance. Which is fine. I like ’em that way, more than when they follow some of the usual tropes we see too much here (hello, working for the band trope. I’m looking square at you). But two people with secrets… that’s just how life is, baby.

This one can’t land in my hands fast enough.
