Review: A Little Bit Country by S.J Frost

Genre- M/M Erotic Romance
Publisher- MLR Press
Cover Artist- Jared Rackler


Rock singer, Ash Ivers, and country music star, Jackson Abrams, have intense passion that brings them together, but will they be able to overcome all their differences when Jackson's career is threatened?

Ash Ivers says and does what he wants, and with being the lead singer of the world famous rock band, From Ashes, he gets away with both. Three years ago, his mouth got the better of him, and he started a media feud with county music star, Jackson Abrams. When they’re both booked to play a charity concert, he sees his chance to finally confront Jackson in person. Though, he’s uncertain if his anger will hold against his attraction to the singing cowboy.

Jackson Abrams is the darling of country music. He’s polite, charming, handsome… and he has a secret that he fears could jeopardize his career. When it comes to the cocky rock star, Ash Ivers, he’s infuriated and intrigued by him. He wants their feuding to stop, but he also doesn't want to lose the attention it gives him from Ash.

As Ash and Jackson meet, the heat of anger turns to passion. But when Jackson’s world starts crumbling around him, will their differences make them stronger, or drive them apart?

***Author's Note*** This is the expanded, full-length novel. The original novella, "A Little Bit Country", was approximately 28k. This book is approximately 60k. It takes the original novella, and where it ended, this one continues on to complete the story.

My Thoughts:

I expected this book to be excellent and I was not disappointed. S.J Frost is one of my favorite authors and she never ceases to amaze me. Everyone who knows me knows that I rant and rave over S.J's Conquest series. This book was just as good, the characters just as loveable and the storyline just as captivating.

Ash is a headstrong, outspoken rock God. He doesn't pull any punches; always tells it like it is. His hair is wild and he has a body (including pierced nipples) that just won't quit. ~See where I am going here...~ Basically Ash is a bad boy that oozes sex appeal. Oh and he is openly gay.

Jackson is more like the boy next door. He is calm, cool and collected. Always seems to think before he opens his mouth. At the same time he rocks a white Stetson and cowboy boots! That's right, he is a good ole boy through and through. Unlike Ash, Jackson is still in the closet about his sexual preference.

You know that saying "opposites attract"? Well that certainly proves true in this case. Bad Boy rocker meets Down Home country boy rancher and the passion ignites.

One of my favorite things about this couple is that once they get together, they stay together. They have enough drama hitting them from the outside they don't need anymore.

The Other Characters...

Chad, Jeremy and Devin are the other members of From Ashes. By the end of this book we can see who Devin may end up with. What about Chad and Jeremy? Could we maybe get a story or stories for them at some point? Then there is Charles Benson he needs a book too! Hopefully S.J Frost will return to these guys at somepoint in the future, but according to her website as of now it is a stand alone title.
