✱✱Audio Book Review✱✱ King of Country by C.W. Farnsworth


King of Country
By: C.W. Farnsworth
Narrated by: Zachary Webber & Andi Arndt

Kyle Spencer is the king of country music.
She’s the city girl, sent to talk him into returning to the stage…

Piper Egan landed her dream job straight out of college—working at Empire Records. But instead of discovering new talent and changing lives, like she’d hoped, her time is spent taking meeting notes and catering to spoiled celebrities. When the chance to change that finally appears, she should be thrilled.

Unfortunately, Piper’s promotion involves the charming cowboy she’s spent years attempting to avoid. And flying to middle of nowhere, Texas, in a desperate attempt to talk the king of country music into returning to the stage.

It’s a work trip with no boundaries. Piper is determined to head back to New York with a signed contract in hand, no matter what it takes. But that plan becomes complicated when she’s greeted by a scowl instead of Kyle’s trademark grin. Becomes challenging when she glimpses the genuine guy beneath the superstar. Becomes impossible when she learns the reason he walked away from the spotlight.

When she realizes…her only plan should have been to protect her heart.

Momma Says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐

King of Country is my first read or listen to CW Farnsworth's work, and now I'm gonna have to check out more because this book convinced me that I've been missing out. The story is emotional, and it touches on some serious stuff, but the romance is pretty low-angst, which is just what I needed this weekend. The characters are well-rounded and personable, and I was rooting for Kyle and Piper from their first bit of banter. I like that the author didn't rely on the usual problems you see in celebrity romances. This pair is not without baggage, but Kyle is not the conceited performer who needs his head shrunk a size or two, and Piper is most definitely not a groupie. Instead, they face real-life issues, things that have touched most of our lives in one way or another. I'll stop there before I get into spoiler territory. What I will say is King of Country is a must read/listen.
The narration was done by Zachary Webber and Andi Arndt, and they did a terrific job on this one. I've listened to and enjoyed both narrators before, so I fully expected good things, and they delivered. These narrators were exactly right for this book, in my opinion, and they only enhanced an already great story.
