Review: Only The Beginning by Laramie Briscoe...Top Pick...

Princess of Country Music
America’s sweetheart
Survivor of the scrutiny that comes with it all
Hannah “Harmony” Stewart has lived most of her adult life in the spotlight. It hasn’t always been easy. One heartbreak almost ruined her. Some days it’s hard to keep a smile on her face and stay positive, but there are a lot of people counting on her to keep it together. Just when it seems like she’s at the pinnacle of her career, her life takes a turn. She meets a man who challenges everything she knows about herself and makes her question if the life she’s living is for her or for the Nashville machine.
Heavy Metal’s bad boy
Hair trigger temper
Struggling to deal with pressure of the industry
Garrett “Reaper” Thompson is tired. Touring and keeping up appearances with his band “Black Friday” is beginning to wear him out. He’s ready for a change, ready for something different. When he meets Hannah at an awards show, he knows that she’s the one, he knows that he can’t live without her.
The problem?
Their own insecurities, their fans, her ex-boyfriend, and the media themselves. Can they look past it all and come through on the other side? For their story – this is only the beginning.
Laramie Briscoe is one of my favorite authors. Her Heaven Hill series is a series that I cannot get enough of. I was so excited to see that she was writing another series and that it was so different from Heaven Hill.  I loved the concept of this story in how two totally different musical entertainers met at an award show and were instantly attracted to each other. It had everything that I look for in a book and so much more. I absolutely fell in love with not only Hannah and Garrett but the other members of Black Friday and Shell as well. I loved how even though they came for such different worlds they made it work. I love when Hannah sings with Garrett at his show. I am totally gone over this series and cannot wait for more. I am so rooting for Shell and Jared.  Such a great start to a promising series.
