Book Review: Live For You (Boys of the South Book 1)

Live For You (Boys of the South ~ Book 1) by Marquita Valentine: ***Mature New Adult/Adult novel - suited for ages 17+***

On the surface, twenty-two year old Cole Morgan is exactly what any girl would be proud to take home to meet her parents: He's charming, intensely handsome and goal-oriented...Only he has some secrets of his own, which include provoking bar fights and a former drug-addict of a mother slowly wasting away in a medical facility.

At barely twenty, Violet Lynn is Country Music's hottest star, until one night of partying gets out of control. Violet ends up in jail and on TMZ. Suddenly, she's the girl least likely to be invited anywhere. Sick of the drama and keeping secrets, she runs away from the prying eyes of the paparazzi to her grandmother's home in Forrestville, North Carolina.

A chance meeting knocks Cole off his feet, but he doesn't recognize Violet for who she is. In fact no one does and Violet plans to keep it that way.

Circumstances, however annoying,keep throwing Violet and Cole together. Unable to stop themselves they give into the inevitable.

But when Nashville is ready to forgive and forget, Violet is forced to choose between Cole and claiming her spot as the new and improved Princess of Country Music.

Will Violet and Cole have the courage to live for their dreams...Or their hearts?

My thoughts: I enjoyed this book immensely and the characters were a lot of fun. Cole is just hot as can be. Violet (Rae) is extremely likable. This is the first book in a series and I know the next book will continue with Violet and Cole's story. But this book is a standalone with no awful cliffhangers. It just ends quietly and leaves you wanting to follow Cole and Violet on wherever the road takes them next. I can see future books in this series written about some of the other side characters in the book. Like Cole's brother, Parker. Violet's new friend Lacey. There's going to have to be something more about Cole's little sister and his mother, too. And I absolutely adored Nana. There are lots of possibilities in this series and I look forward to reading more Boys of the South books!
