Despite both being contestants on the country music singing show, Starmaker, Sadie Hunter and Max Brody could not be more different. Having quit her waitressing job and small gigs to take her big chance on winning a recording contract, Sadie is laying it all on the line to win or face having to go back to Wisconsin. Max grew up having it all and is out to prove that he can make it in the music industry on his own without the influence of his hall-of-fame country star father. After their pairing on duet night, their hot vocals and sizzling chemistry have the producers telling them they must fake a relationship—or leave the competition. Sadie and Max have to put aside their animosity and figure out how to work together before they are exposed as fakes while fighting a growing attraction to each other that is hard to resist.
VERDICT Knox’s (the alias of writing duo Karma Brown and Marissa Stapley) latest holiday novel after The Holiday Swap is an enjoyable read with the perfect mix of country music, romance, family, and heart.
