You'd Be Mine Reviews

  • Karen McManus

    I was fortunate enough to read an early draft of this book and I absolutely loved it!

    You’d Be Mine is my favorite kind of YA contemporary: witty, charming, uplifting, and off-the-charts swoony, but with enough tension and challenges to keep the story grounded in reality. Annie is country music royalty and a reluctant rising star, signed to Nashville party boy Clay’s summer tour to help rehabilitate his image. They’re both playing a role, but their hidden depths, dreams, and complicated back stor

    You’d Be Mine is my favorite kind of YA contemporary: witty, charming, uplifting, and off-the-charts swoony, but with enough tension and challenges to keep the story grounded in reality. Annie is country music royalty and a reluctant rising star, signed to Nashville party boy Clay’s summer tour to help rehabilitate his image. They’re both playing a role, but their hidden depths, dreams, and complicated back stories give them crackling chemistry that’s incredibly fun to read. And the secondary characters are so razor-sharp and well-drawn, you’ll wish they had their own book (can they? please?). This is Erin Hahn’s debut, and I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us next.

    Obviously, I've already written, read and loved this book... but I just wanted to say that I sincerely hope everyone who takes the time to read Annie and Clay's story finds something of themselves in it. You honor me with your support and curiosity and I can't wait to share my country music kids with all of you! <3

    I don't know much about music. And while I do have a

    , I'm not too into music. That said, I, like most people, have quite a few favorite celebrities. It was so fun to get a peak, even if fiction, into the broken, beautiful world.

    follows a wide array of characters but mainly Annie and Clay, two talented artists on the glow up. Much to the industry's dismay, Annie and Clay aren't on good terms. But they are forced together on a summer-long tour around the US. That's this book in a nutshell. Basically,

    meets

    . It was charming, funny and emotional.

    - Every story about country music needs a cocky cowboy, right? Wrong. Not to say that I didn't like Clay. That's not true. I hated him. For a good half of the book, I really didn't like him. I felt bad because I don't know if that's what the author meant to happen. Towards the end, I did warm up to him but that was mainly because of the character growth as is usual in most YA novels.

    - Our second lead, Annie Mathers, is also a singer but is a lot kinder and a lot more humble about it. (*cough* Clay *cough*) As I mentioned earlier, Annie has reservations about going on tour with Clay. It was for a few very understandable reasons. One, she was having a hard time with Clay (Girl, I don't blame you). Two, she was feeling very hesitant to join hands with the "industry" because… Three, her parents were "killed" by it. I won't go into this because it is potentially triggering but I also want to avoid spoilers. Annie didn't have much character growth but that was mainly because, in my opinion, she didn't need it. In fact, I felt like Annie was a bit of a role model as far as celebrities go. Of course, she wasn't perfect but she handled the pressure well and was very humble about her privilege.

    - Trina Hamilton is by far, one of the funniest characters I've met in a while. Partly because her last name is Hamilton which reminds me of the musical but she does not have the decorum or grace but in the best possible way. Trina is like your loving but pissed Teacher who is sick of you zoning out in class but loves when you share smart answers. And it's not like she tries either. She's is so open and brutally honest but instead of making you dislike her, it makes you want to laugh and sit down and have a chat with this woman. Even funnier, I got "villain" vibes from her. I thought maybe she was supposed to be the villain or at least a partial antagonist. I feel so weird. My character senses are broken. Great.

    - Honestly, I felt like Fitz was Clay's babysitter. No joke. He was really only brought into the story to keep track of and "protect" Clay. Not to say that he wasn't unlikable but he was likable either. He was just a medium. I guess I can be grateful that he basically kept all the characters from hurting each other. Or themselves. Or that squirrel over there- Wow, I just realized how crazy this band is.

    - errrrrrrrrrrmmmm. I don't really remember anything about Jason. This could be for two reasons. One, he was forgettable and didn't add anything to the story. Or, two, he wasn't included enough in the story. Two is most likely. It does kind of frustrate me when authors introduce characters and then don't use them. I'm not saying Erin Hahn did this on purpose but sometimes authors bite off more than they can chew.

    -

    And now, the part of my review where I talk about psychology! Yay! I know I sound like a broken record but this topic is very, very important to me. Anyway! A big theme in this novel is how being famous can take a toll on your mental health. I wholeheartedly believe this to be true. I don't claim to be famous but I am blessed enough to have a relatively decent following on Goodreads and my blog (Thank you guys for that! Every day, I feel so blessed to have such a large, kind community to interact with! I greatly appreciate and realize my privilege!). Even with my small audience, I do feel the stress of performance. Because it is stressful. There are some days where I just don't feel like reading or writing my reviews. But because most of the books I read are review copies, meaning I am obligated to read and review them, I don't get a break very often. Now, I know you must be thinking:

    Again, I appreciate the privilege but with privilege comes responsibility. Because when you have an audience, suddenly you're not alone anymore. You have hundreds of eyes watching you every moe. There is so much unspoken pressure to get everything right. All I'm saying is being under the spotlight has its perks but also has its downfalls.

    Another big theme in this novel is country music. Now, I'm not a big fan of country music. I don't mind it but it's not my favorite. Even so, I loved how it is shown that not just country music but music and art, in general, can move the world. Music can show passion, joy, love and release pain, anger, and sadness. This book truly shows the wonder of music.

    At the same time, we, as the reader, get a really interesting look into the ins and outs of being a musician and singer. I found it so fascinating to read about everything from paperwork to tour buses. It a side of fame we don't get to see much and I really appreciated the inclusion of that aspect.

    On the other hand, a big issue at play was the "industry". I put industry in quotation marks because industry is very broad and rather vague. What I mean by industry, and I don't know much about the music industry, is things like record labels and all that stuff. Do I have this right? It's record labels, right? See, I told you I don't know much. The point I'm trying to make is that sometimes it can be scary to be an artist when you feel like people are trying to buy not just your music but you.

    On that note, I loved how Annie and Clay, even though they were working with the industries, stood strong. They stayed true to themselves and to their art. They were independent and strong-willed but were also smart about it. I think the reason big companies get this way is because it stops being a group of people working together with a shared goal. It mutates into rules, codes, and schedules. Soon, the only goal is to get more money. I think that if companies can be aware of this, they can do better at avoiding it.

    On a lighter note, I enjoyed the little romance side plot between Clay and Annie. It provided a welcome distraction from all the emotions of the celebrity world and the stress of being on tour. I really hope we get another book so we can see more Clay/Annie action!

    Overall, I really enjoyed this novel! It was cute and funny while being tense and serious all at the same time. It was a beautiful combination of expertly crafted plot and writing that of someone who really knows what they're doing!

    This book was way more than I expected. And it was so much more than I could have hoped for. I was feeling this giddiness, happiness, and an all around enchantment I haven't felt in a long time.

    2018 has been a year of wonderful debut novels. I found so many new authors to keep an eye on, and I'm thrilled that Erin Hahn is one of them.

    The rockstar genre has been a favorite genre of mine, and I think a young adult novel about two country singers fits nicely into this category.

    Besides its being a wonderful young adult novel, with an highly emotional plot and fantastic characters, there was a certain amount of raw emotions that shone through it. It gave this book an emotional punch that was unexpected.

    You'd Be Mine truly had everything a music centered novel should have.

    Swagger, swoon, an over abundance of feelings, lots of music, a little bit of star crossed lovers, and a love story that without a doubt spoke to me.

    I loved the entire cast. They were sweet, charming, relatable, and so very likable. They cared for each other, supported and teased one another, and just had an amazing time together. Of course such a book doesn't come without a good amount of emotional turmoil, but I was wonderfully pleased by the way the author decided to go about it. It was a truly amazing debut novel.

    But the writing was what really won me over. I absolutely LOVED this author's voice. Smart, witty, charming - it all worked for me. Nowadays it's really all about the writing for me. Plot alone won't win me over if the writing doesn't grip me. Reading You'd Be Mine was a true pleasure. From the very first page on, I was HOOKED!!

    If you love young adult love stories that make you swoon, laugh and FEEL - this novel is a MUST READ!!! I'm truly in love with this story, and can't wait to read her next book, I already put it on my GR tbr. 2019 can't come soon enough.

    This was a wonderful romance! I went into this book without a whole lot of expectations. I picked this book up largely because it sounded somewhat original. I don't remember ever seeing another book about a pair of young adult country music stars so I decided to give it a chance. That risk worked out pretty well. This was one of those books that sucked you in and didn't let go. I just had a great time with this book.

    This was a wonderful romance! I went into this book without a whole lot of expectations. I picked this book up largely because it sounded somewhat original. I don't remember ever seeing another book about a pair of young adult country music stars so I decided to give it a chance. That risk worked out pretty well. This was one of those books that sucked you in and didn't let go. I just had a great time with this book.

    Annie is the daughter of country music superstars. Her parents are gone so her grandparents are her closest family. She is leary of walking in her famous parent's footsteps but she has a gift. When Clay knocks on her door to recruit her for the opening act on his tour, she decides to go along with the rest of the trio, which includes her cousin and close friend.

    Clay is headlining the tour and has been on the music scene just a little longer. Even though he is underage, he has spent a lot of time on the road drinking or hanging out with girls. He has some things in his past that he is also trying to deal with and he isn't always dealing with them all that well.

    I loved Annie and Clay together. From the very start, I thought that the scenes between them were the times when they were completely real. Clay wasn't always such a nice guy when other people were around but Annie seemed to bring out the best in him. I loved their chemistry both on the stage and off. I really thought that these two were good for each other and it was a ton of fun watching them find their way.

    I would recommend this book to others. It was a very well done story about two people working to get over their pasts while they fell for each other. I look forward to reading more from this new author.

    This was a wonderful book! I loved Annie and Clay more and more with each chapter. They both had demons from their past to deal with and it was interesting how differently they chose to do it. I thought that they were great together and I loved seeing how everything wrapped up.

    You’d Be Mine by Erin Hahn is a young adult contemporary romance that takes readers behind the scenes of the world of county music. It’s a bit of an opposites attract where the bad boy isn’t really as bad as he pretends to be.

    Annie Mathers isn’t too sure of stepping into the spotlight in the country music industry after what happened to her parents. Both music legends themselves Annie’s parents fell victims to the dark side of the industry and it cost them their lives leaving Annie alone in the world. However, Annie’s talent surpasses that of her parents and the labels are battling over getting her to join.

    Much like Annie, Clay Coolidge was born with a natural musical talent that stood out from the rest. Clay however jumped right into the business and hasn’t looked back. When Clay’s label wants to sign Annie to open for his next tour they give him the task of having to convince her to join him on the road, will Annie be able to resist his bad boy charm?

    You’d Be Mine is a cute little contemporary romance that reminded me a bit of the television show Nashville. This has all the ins and outs, the ups and downs and intrigue of the behind the scenes of the music business. The characters were likable and fun to root for and the story felt as if heading right out on tour along with them giving all the emotion of their journey along the way.

    I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.

    selective when it comes to reader copies and only request/accept things I think I’ll love. YA romance? Yikes. I’m not always so good at reading those. Buuuuuuuuuuut, sometimes you just know you’re gonna be okay right from the jump. The cover and title of this one were appealing, the name dropping of other authors worked great because my mind kept thinking they wrote

    (so sorry Heather Demetrios – but people should really name drop you because you write some good stories) and the plot????

    So here’s a little confession: I have become a super hardcore fan of what I call “pop country” music. I grew up on Waylan and Willie, rebelled with the likes of Eddie Vedder and other soothing song stylings of Seattle grunge, and now thanks to my kid (who also introduced me to 21 Pilots – a duo that never fails to make me feel like a dirty pervert who will have Dateline showing up at the door any moment) I am a lover of Top 40 country music. THIS is a book about Top 40 country music. And I loved it. Kudos to you brave little marketer for rolling the dice on me!

    The story here starts with Clay Coolidge. He’s the hottest thing in country music and makes all the girls want to take their underwears off by singing them songs like . . . .

    Unfortunately he also has a rep for being a real bad boy to the point where his underage drinking shenanigans might cost him his contract. The potential solution to his problems? Get himself an opening act that will tidy up his image. That’s where Annie Mathers comes in. A legacy to country royalty and 100% good girl who sings songs like . . . .

    Annie always keeps her eyes on the prize – especially after seeing what the darker side of fame did to her parents. Their job is simple. Tour the summer State Fair circuit and make America fall in love with the new version of Johnny and June . . . .

    Heavy on friendship and country music – light on romance,

    is sure to be a hit. If an old grouch like me can fall in love with these kids’ love, surely actual kids who are in the target demographic for this book will too . . . .

    Erin Hahn’s debut is a lively heart warming contemporary YA romance. The kind of book that puts a BIG smile on your face! The thing I really like about young adult romance is how innocent it is; how everything is just so exaggerated, because it is the first time these characters have ever felt this way. I guess I appreciate that the characters have not been jaded yet and I can forgive them their naïveté because they are young. Perhaps I long for

    Erin Hahn’s debut is a lively heart warming contemporary YA romance. The kind of book that puts a BIG smile on your face! The thing I really like about young adult romance is how innocent it is; how everything is just so exaggerated, because it is the first time these characters have ever felt this way. I guess I appreciate that the characters have not been jaded yet and I can forgive them their naïveté because they are young. Perhaps I long for the days when I was a little more naïve and a little less jaded.

    Annie and Clay are up-and-coming country stars. Clay has a bit of a bad boy reputation, his label insists he gets Annie to tour with him to help repair his image. Annie is the daughter of two major country legends who died tragically, determined not to follow in her parents footsteps she is extremely hesitant to step into the spotlight. The two end up touring together and what follows is a Sweet relationship, that I am sure every reader and fan was rooting for. Of course as in all good teen romances this book had plenty of drama, angst, and emotion. I believe Miss Hahn did a wonderful job handling the drama, and the ending... perfect!

    Annie and Clay were great characters and I loved the relationship between them. Annie had such a quiet confidence and a sweetness about her. Clay was really a good guy in and boy clothing. The two of them together were quite magical, especially when it came to the music. Erin Hahn brought such strong voices to these characters that I feel as though I’ve heard them sing.

    A lovely little gem of a book, perfect for readers of all ages who love the love.💕
