Book & Author Details:

Something I Need
by Lena Lowe
(xoxo Nashville, #1)
Publication date: September 14th 2016
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance


Jonte Williamson has a dream: become Nashville’s next big star. Finding herself unexpectedly homeless hot off the plane wasn’t part of her grand plan.

Cash Bellini is a simple man: he loves his twin sister, Dolly, hates country music, and stays far away from anything more complicated than that.

When Jonte stumbles into Cash’s bar, helping out the homeless country music wannabe is the last thing on his agenda. Pity someone forgot to send the memo to his too-big heart and meddling twin. Throw in a pair of baby blue cowboy boots, a pool table and a splash of tequila, and these two are set to ignite in a hot sexy mess! Will either of their hearts survive the tug-o-war between what they want and what they need?

“Sweetheart, did you bother to read the name of the bar on your way in?” He cocked his head to one side, thinking maybe he’d get a better handle on her from this angle.
Her silence spoke volumes and she looked down from his face to the logo on his black shirt: Rock on Nashville.
There you go sweetheart.
He turned around so she could see the slogan plastered across his shoulders: This ain’t no country bar!
He spun back around and noticed she was quick to look up. Had she just been checking out his ass?
“I am in Nashville, right?”
Great, melodramatic too. All these variations of drama. Why was he standing here again?
“Just checking I didn’t manage to get myself on the wrong damn plane too.”
“Fries are up!” Pete yelled, sticking his bald head out from the window on the other side of the bar.
Cash held up his hand and rushed over to grab the basket. He checked the regulars were all boozed up and fine, and then returned to the crazy blonde Aussie.
“Here, you looked hungry.” He pushed the basket of fries towards her.
“Really, you shouldn’t have.”
Cash simply shrugged, agreeing. It was done now.
“Thanks.” Jonte popped a fry into her mouth.
“So, sweetheart, how’d you lose your place to stay? Didn’t you sign a lease agreement?”
“It was an informal sublet arranged over the internet.” She grabbed for another fry. “I’d Skyped with my supposed roommate, Misha, and paid her a deposit, but apparently her sister got dumped by some loser boyfriend and moved into the room this morning. She said she tried to call me, but...” Jonte dangled her dead cell in the air.
Cash let out a nervous chuckle, his insides churning crazily at the thought of what he was about to ask. 
Keep your mouth shut tight. It’s none of your damn business. Walk away. Walk away. Walk away.
“Right. Are you here to go to Vanderbilt?” He knew he shouldn’t give a damn, but he prayed her answer was yes. She seemed like a smart enough chick, and really there was only ever one other reason people came to Nashville. “Maybe the housing officer can help you out.”
Of course not. Disappointment drowned the smidgen of hope that had snuck in. There was only one thing left to ask. “You want to be a country star?”
“Am I that obvious?”
“Actually, no.”
“What does that mean?”
“Well, look at you, sweetheart.” Cash gestured at her messy blonde hair and her simple white tank top. “Where are your cowboy boots, and more importantly, did someone steal your guitar? ‘Cause if they did, you left it off your list of woes just a minute ago.”
“I don’t play guitar.”
That stopped him short.
She doesn’t play?
Christ, how in the hell did she expect to make it in this town without a damn guitar slung over her shoulder? Maybe she wasn’t as smart and determined as he’d given her credit for.
