Becks:

How does a straight
guy accidentally come out as gay to the entire country music world?
I’ll get back to
you when I know the answer.
It all happened so
fast. One moment, my best friend’s little brother is standing in a sea of
people as his boyfriend breaks his heart. Again.
The next, I’m
jumping off stage mid-concert to give him the kiss of his life–or maybe the
kiss of my life.
I’m Beckett
Anderson. Yes, that Beckett. The one who never does the smart
thing, messes up daily, and somehow ended up with millions of screaming
fans.
Fans who now think
I’m dating Nicky St. Germaine.
The label says I
can’t come out as straight (Is that even a thing?), that I can’t tell the world
I lied.
But this lie of
mine… it doesn’t hold a candle to the one I tell myself.

Nicky:

How does the quiet
gay guy end up kissing the straight country music star in front of thousands of
his screaming fans?
I still can’t
fathom what he was thinking when he jumped off that stage, but that kiss… None
of it was real, but it felt like it. At least to me.
I’m Nicky St.
Germaine, son of a football Hall of Famer, best friends with rock star, Nari
Won Song–and whatever I am to Country Music sensation, Beckett Anderson. The
jury’s still out on that one. What does a small town kid do when so many of his
friends and family are famous? He hides. Frequently.
Now the spotlight
is on me, and there is nowhere left to hide. I’m supposed to pretend to be
Beckett’s adoring boyfriend for a few weeks, but that’s not so easy when I’d
give almost anything for it to be true.

 

Ari’s 🎩🎩🎩🎩 hat review:

Dating Nashville kicks off with a straight country music star kissing the hell out of his best friend’s gay younger brother to try and help him. From there a chain reaction of confusion and problems is set off.

I liked these characters and story, but I was a bit confused when it came to their romance in the story. So much of it felt glossed over and like I was missing some of it. Perhaps because this is a spin off of a previous series which I wasn’t aware of until after I had read the book.

All in all it was a sweet MM romance and I enjoyed their story and journey. I enjoy books that spotlight inclusion, self discovery, and explore issues of identity respectfully. Dating Nashville did all of the above. 4 stars.
