Story Overview:
Emily Young had two goals in her life:
1. Make it big in country music.
2. Get the hell out of Bell Buckle.

She was doing it. She was on her way, until Cooper Townsend landed backstage at her show in Dallas.

This gorgeous, rugged, man of few words was one cowboy she couldn’t afford to let distract her. But with his slow smile and rough hands, she just couldn’t keep away.

With outside forces conspiring against them, Cooper hires the McKay-Taggart team to protect her. Emily refuses to let Cooper get hurt because of her. All she wants is to hold onto him, but she knows the right thing to do is to let go . . .
My Review:
This is a short novella, but it's not short on story. Emily and Cooper know each other from Bell Buckle, TN, but they meet up in Texas, where she's touring and he's there for a cattle rancher's association meetup. They've known one another for years. For Emily, those are years when she's been crushing on Cooper, but he was infatuated with her best friend. Until this trip, which changes everything. Suddenly, they see one another in a different light. The thing is...Emily is on the verge of big stardom and that's drawing some "unwelcome" attention. 

This kind of quick love story works because Emily and Cooper basically grew up together. They have a history that quickly evolves way past friendship. 

I liked the book. It's a quick, but satisfying read with even a bit of action and suspense thrown in that made it really very good. 

I definitely recommend the book and it works perfectly well as a standalone read, even though it's officially part of two different series.
