Macon by Marie James

Title: Macon

Author: Marie James

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: September 14, 2017


Tossing a middle finger to Macon, Georgia as I made my way to Nashville was always the dream. Sing country music, go on tour, top the charts—with my popularity growing every day, I was on my way.

But then a gust of wind blew up your skirt, and those white cotton panties had me hooked. I didn’t know your name, and you turned down every attempt I tried to throw your way. But I knew you were different, even though you told me I was the same.

“Friends” is what you offered, and I played by your rules, but, Adelaide Hatfield, you have to know, from that day, it was only you.

I just hope I can make you see how much you mean to me before we both drown in the sorrow of what heartbreak can truly be.

Marie James captured my attention from the first chapter until the very last sentence. This book is about college, the country music scene, and friends who want to more but things are preventing it from happening. It’s told in a dual POV, which is a great way to see both sides of Adelaide and Axton’s story.

Adelaide is dedicated college student, who also is the one her parents are pushing to find the right man to marry. She has a lot of pressure on her right now and she wants to find her way through it. She comes off shy, but once you get to know her she is extremely full of banter and sometimes goofy.

Axton is a local Macon country singer. He is known throughout the town for his swoon-worthy voice and his way with the ladies. Axton also “attends” college, but hasn’t been there in a long time. He was more into pursuing his singing career than school.

Adelaide meets Axton when she gets a flat on the side of the ride. She immediately recognizes him, because she is a fan of his voice. He sees a beautiful woman and doesn’t know why he is so drawn to her. They have a few run ins at places that Axton is singing at. Adelaide can’t help but feel an attraction to him, especially when he is singing songs directly to her. Axton sees an opening and tries to go for it, only to be put into the friend zone. Adelaide sees the potential Axton has to be a great and very popular country singer. Axton just wants to be with her, no matter what.

Can Adelaide show Axton that she really does love him? Will Axton do what she is worried about when he does leave for a tour? Do they find there way back to each other or will it always be just friends for them?

I loved this book for so many reasons, the country music references, the friends who want to be more, and the secondary characters who played a big role throughout the whole book. I highly recommend this book to anyone who appreciates music or looking for an epic love story.
