Open Road Summer
by Emery Lord
Coming April 15, 2014
Walker / Bloomsbury

After breaking up with her bad-news boyfriend, Reagan O’Neill is ready to leave her rebellious ways behind. . . and her best friend, country superstar Lilah Montgomery, is nursing a broken heart of her own. Fortunately, Lilah’s 24-city tour is about to kick off, offering a perfect opportunity for a girls-only summer of break-up ballads and healing hearts. But when Matt Finch joins the tour as its opening act, his boy-next-door charm proves difficult for Reagan to resist, despite her vow to live a drama-free existence. This summer, Reagan and Lilah will navigate the ups and downs of fame and friendship as they come to see that giving your heart to the right person is always a risk worth taking. A fresh new voice in contemporary romance, Emery Lord’s gorgeous writing hits all the right notes.

Why I want it:
I am obsessed with all things celebrity. It's my big guilty pleasure. So a book that goes behind-the-scenes of a music tour makes my inner famewhore really, really happy. In my head, Taylor Swift is my best friend, and you better believe this book is going to enable my fantasy of being on a country tour. Also, I've really been on a contemporary kick for a while. I'm just really into real life happenings and how varied it can be without any extra science or fantasy or supernatural goings on. This looks right up my alley!

Why I think you should want it:
Early reviews are super good for this debut, saying it's a perfect romance, but it also showcases an awesome friendship. Also, guys, seriously. That cover. I want a physical copy of this book just so I can snuggle with it because it's gorgeous.
