Julie Adams is a personal stylist to Nashville’s hottest music stars. With her career exactly where she always dreamed of being, and an amazing group of friends, her life is perfect… Kind of. She’s just missing one thing. Love. She fell head over heels for Justin at a friend's wedding, but he wasn’t willing to commit, leaving her wondering if she will ever be the one saying ‘I do’. But a drunk night in Vegas lands her in bed with Justin, which threatens to shatter her heart once more.
Justin Miller is one of the hottest agents in Nashville. And by one of the hottest, I don’t just mean most in demand. I mean hot. Like pinch yourself to see if you’re dreaming hot. But every seemingly perfect guy must have at least one flaw. And Justin’s is he refuses to settle down and commit to anyone. He fell in love with Julie, but his fear of commitment sent her packing. So when he wakes up after a very drunken night in Vegas, married to the woman he knows is meant for him, he has a decision to make; fight for love or end the best thing that ever happened to him.
With the baggage both bring to the table, the journey is guaranteed to be a rough one. Getting married when drunk was obviously a mistake. Or was it the only way they could see through the hurt to the possibilities that lie ahead? Can an accidental marriage bloom into a lasting love, or will it be doomed from the start?
My Accidental Future is book 3 of the Hearts of Nashville series. While it can be read as a standalone, reading the other two books first will give a lot more context and background to the main characters.
Plot: The plot ties up all loose ends, but could be made more realistic – all mistakes are forgiven easily, and everyone meets their happy ending. The storyline follows one couple through a break-up, instant marriage, the loss of a premature child and the adoption of foster children.
Prose/Style: The prose is quite clear and well-written, with the exception of too few commas, and a few grammatical errors. The dialogue seems mostly realistic. A medium copy edit and proofread would be very helpful here.
Originality: While the plot might be realistic for some individuals, the idea of getting married to an estranged partner while drunk, not remembering that action, and then making this marriage work out may indeed be a bit far-fetched – nonetheless, it’s original.
Character Development: The two main characters could use more emotional growth and development to seem more realistic. Justin has the ability to seemingly change overnight, despite his previous debauchery. Because these characters are country musicians in Nashville, one expects some rowdiness, late hours, and partying behavior, rather than immediately settling down into a fairly suburban existence.
