      In 2011, during "MM Romance Group's Hot Summer Days" event, S.J. Frost came up with 28k freebie entitled, A Little Bit Country. I really loved that story -- I enjoyed Ash and Jackson's bickering before they finally succumbed to the fact that word-war was a perfect kind of foreplay . However, I also felt their story wasn't finished and was grumbling with how it ended.Now, two years later, Ms. Frost finally added more than 30k words to make it a full length novel. For those who hasn't read the ori [...]

      I've been chipping away at this book for over a month. If you like overly sweet reads, this book is for you. As for me, I'm wishing I had spent the $8 on two boxes of girl scout cookies nstead. ;-)

      (May)Book of the Month"How to Make A Little Bit Country Pie"- 1/2 metric ton of sugar- 1 very forgiving guy who is the Country to His 'Rock & Roll'. He also wears a cowboy heat pretty much EVERY WHERE that I'm surprised he did not wear it while having sex.- 1 rocker big mouth diva who wanted to be the pretty princess in all the land and never got to wear the crown. And tantrum it out for the first half of the half of the book and then stole the attention for the second half. He fucks decent [...]

      2.5I really enjoyed the shorter, free version of this story. It was fun with lots of smexy, snarky times. It was full of SMARK! It was good. So, I guess I don't know what was gained by expanding it. The first half went like this:Fight.Ash looks like a jerk.Ash apologizes.Argue.Jackson looks like the dickwad.Jaskson apologizes.Bicker.They both look douchey at this point.They both apologize.Fight apologize fight apologize bleh.Now don't get me wrong, there were things I did like, (hence, rounding [...]

      UPDATE 5/6/14 - Come check out our Happy Hour Chat on the blog. Just a warning though. Shenanigans abound! UPDATE 4/25/14 - Buddy re-read with my fellow unicorns. :D1st Read 10/5/13 - Aw What a sweet story. Other than the fact that Ash is basically the same person as Jesse from her Conquest series, this was a great read. It was sweet but not saccharine, humorous but not over the top silly. Very enjoyable.

      I really enjoyed this tale of two musicians, a rock star and a country western singer. I usually stay away from this genre, but the reviews talked me into reading this one and I'm so glad I did. The MCs were delightful and the sex was hot as hell. There were deep emotions, which I LOVE and pushed this book up a star since the music business doesn't really interest me.Absolutely recommended for all M/M romance lovers who love some good sex, heavy on the emotion. *dreamy sigh*

      I never read the short story by the same name, so when I started this, I had no clue who the characters were. I know a lot of people had been waiting for this, and so was I. But I wasn't one who had some knowledge about these characters and the basic plot. I'm glad that I hadn't read the short story because I went into this reading a new, fresh, book. And I loved it!A Little Bit Country, A Novel might be deemed as too sweet for some readers, but as most people know, I love sweet books. It has el [...]

      I literally have like TWO fluffy books on my fluff shelf and this is one of them :P I love this chick's writing and her characters and I enjoy the sex scenes so damn much! Ashton was my favorite amongst the two and Jackson made a very sometimes-annoying cowboy who is incredibly hot ;) Watching Ash and Jackson go back and forth was very, um, interesting.

    • Sunny says:

      AwwI liked this story! And I wasn't sure I would, because that beginning? I didn't like it at all. Ash was an ass. He'd be decent, even sweet, for a bit, then he'd be an ass again. I hated the constant back and forth. And Jackson wasn't much better with his snide comments. The constant digs, comments really irritated me. Enemies to lovers is not my thing, because I hate the whole enemies thing.Also, at times the dialogue was offodd, awkward, something. Other times it was very well done. That goe [...]

      DNF 35%DNF isn`t quite right - like with most of the other books from the author I tried in the last years I wanted to finish, but I couldn`t.Reading this felt (for me) like lying lazily on a comfy deck chair on a gently rocking boat - impossible to stay awake.I don`t have any niggles I could come up with, this simply is a case of author-and-reader-don`t-match.I`m saying goodbye to S.J. Frost now, but I`m doing it with a hug.:)

    • Ann says:

      One I've been wanting to read forever and for whatever stupid reason I just hadn't. I do have some awesome unicornian friends who kick me in the ass when necessary and so a tip-o-the-horn to my most awesome peeps. I loved Ash, even while douchey, his self perceived awesomeness cracked me up and Jackson's humble, gosh-golly-darn southern charm was swoony. I liked Ash mostly when he was recognizing his own faults:"I have a tendency to explode over little crap . . . and big crap, too. Well, pretty [...]

      Sexy smooth talking cowboy falls for mouthy, wise ass rockerloved it!I don't generally read MM books, but I love cowboys and I love rockers. So I saw this one on the feed and looked into reviewing it. Then I read the except and I went straight home and paid the money (7.74$) for this baby!Money well spent, my friends. I loved Jackson right from the get go, but I have to say that I loved Ash too. They were just the right mix of country and rock 'n roll! They also talked to each other and worked o [...]

      4.5 stars - This was really lovely. I really liked the short story version, and when I saw that a novel had been released I was so excited to read it! The short story was really fabulous and had actually been one of my favourites in the Hot Summer Days event of 2011. Part of me did worry that the novel version would be disappointing but I really shouldn't have been worried at all. This was a really entertaining and sweet read. I actually ADORE Ash, even if he is a pain in the arse sometimes! He [...]

      Woohoo! Rock-n-roll meets country! :)Well written romance about a country music singer falling in love with a rock star. After years of trading verbal insults through the media Ash Ivers and Jackson Abrams finally come together at a charity event where both are performing. The sparks fly and they realize nothing is as is seemsIt's a sweet and wonderful love story and I had a great time reading it. :)

      I love music,be it Country or rock or any other.So a story about stars of music always have a soft spot for me.When I read this blurb I was excited to find two lead characters Rock singer, Ash Ivers, and country music star, Jackson Abrams grabbing each others throat,I was hooked and another reason I was excited to read the story.It was a great entertaining read and I liked it.Happy readying:)

    • Candice says:

      I don't know how I missed the first one when it came out, but really glad that I got to read when it was now a full story. I really loved this one and the characters. Yes, for some people this would probably be considered a sappy little story. For me, it was a fluffy, angst free story that I really enjoyed.

    • Heather says:

      Honestly, it was hard to picture Ash as his own character. He's Jesse's doppelgänger for sure. I liked the country star vs. rock star battle. I have a thing for a hot gay cowboy. Yum. Jackson and Jesse. Oh. Wait. See. I mean Ash were polar opposites. I wish we would of seen more to that effect. They went from almost hating each other to cozy and in love with hardly any bumps. This story is about Jackson getting outed and his world as he knows it disappearing. But From Ashes is there to help him [...]

    • Valerie ~Varuca~ says:

      I loved visiting Ash and Jackson again. I've been not so patiently waiting to read more about these 2 and I was not disappointed. I loved meeting Jackson's family and seeing how From Ashes really rallied around Jackson (view spoiler)[ when Clint outed him and everyone else turned their backs on him (hide spoiler)]. Even with that, there is not a lot of angst and things were wrapped up very neatly, but I was okay with that. Sometime you just need an angst-free, fluffy read. I will be visiting the [...]

    • Jenn says:

      Sugar puff fluff that I preferred as the short story. Still a totally nice story, likable characters, and nothing truly bothered me. The parts where they were at Jackson's ranch were much stronger than the L.A. parts or any of the press situations.

      I really enjoyed this story when I read it as a short awhile back; the original version, of course, being written for the MM Romance Group’s “Hot Summer Days” event. Now in it’s expanded version it’s even better. I loved the combination of Ash and Jackson in the short and seeing them work through everything together was fabulous!Ashton “Ash” Ivers is the lead singer of the uber popular rock band From Ashes. He’s loud, more than a bit wild, and openly gay. He’s been out his enti [...]

      Overall book rating: 4 Stars Audio book: n/a Book Cover: 4 Stars MC1: Ash MC2: JacksonTo be honest and true to myself, I struggled with the first part of this book even though it made me giggle and I kept picturing Adam Lambert with a yellow Mohawk with red in between. (Like Jackson likes to put it a hotdog stand). The main reason I struggled was because of a previous book hangover and that was unfair of me, after a serious conversation with myself (yeah I do that a lot - I know crazy hey?)After [...]

    • Amanda says:

      4 starsI normally don't go for the whole rockstar/musician thing because I always find it cheesy. I never, EVER like the lyrics the authors come up withwhich is kinda weird I guess but I don't. I always roll my eyes and skip over them anytime I see them. Kinda like when an author tries to describe a character dancing. I always envision them looking like a moron in my head. It just doesn't work for me at all. But when I read another review (or was it the comments on a review?) about Frost getting [...]

    • Traci says:

      Love it! So glad we got another book from this author! This book is about a country singer, Jackson and a Rock singer, Ashton (Ash). They have had a 3 yr rivalry through the media. They finally come together at a charity event where both are performing. Once anger subsides, passion overrides. There is instant chemistry that has been brewing for over 3 yrs and they finally recognize it. Jackson is still hidden in the closet with his fans, band, label and manager. Ash and Jackson learn how to deal [...]

      3.75 starsThis enemies-to-lovers story of a bad boy rocker and a down-home country star is easy, pleasant, and very sweet.At the beginning of the novel, Ash (our rocker) and Jackson (our country music star) have been sniping at each other through the press for the past three years, but they have never met or spent any time together in real life. That changes during a music festival, when they realize that the media feud covered a real desire to know each other in "the Biblical sense." They meet, [...]

    • Kaje Harper says:

      I really enjoyed the original short story about the meeting of rockstar Ash, and country star Jackson, which opens this book. I was pleased to see it expanded into a novel. The longer format allows for more fleshing out of some of the secondary characters, and a view of what happens as the relationship between the two men progresses. It's a fairly sweet, low-conflict opposites-attract story.Ash enjoys his bad-boy persona, and has been out as a gay man from the start of his career. Jackson is qui [...]

      2.5 StarsTwo music superstars from different sides of the track go from friends to lovers. Rock singer, Ash Ivers, and country music star, Jackson Abrams, go from feuding to f*cking after their first face-to-face meeting. While Ash is out, Ivers is not and their story takes a turn when the media gets wind of their love affair. This story was alright. At first, Ash was just a dick. Then he wasn't. I enjoyed the relationship building between he and Jack but it got a little dull around the 65% mark [...]

    • Rissa (an M/M kinda Girl!!) says:

      *Awesome!!*Ash & Jackson are two of my favorite musicians (I had already met them back in 2011 during an M/M write event)I love the country & rock combo that they got goin on. Two alpha male musicians who like to get under each others skin.l thru the media. When they finally meet they realize that they have a bit more in common than they thought.Story was fun, secondary characters were lovable (well except one.) and the sexin was smokin' hott! I really hope that these guys get another bo [...]

      This was a buddy read for the BotM at BMBR. I'd read the shorter version prior to reading this and I enjoyed it. I didn't love it but I liked it a lot. I think the same can be said for this book - it was good, the characters were great, the story line fun. Rather than writing a long review here I'll put a link to our our monthly book chatboymeetsboyreviewsd you can read what the unicorns thought collectively. (Or collectively thoughtwhaatev's, you know what I mean!)

    • Jo * Smut-Dickted * says:

      Loved the original story for the MM Group event - and this was a wonderful enhancement to it. I liked how we got to get additional background and we got to really see the ramifications for Jackson after coming out. I did think it got a little bit drawn out towards the end - but getting all that closure was really nice!
