Music City Dreamers By Robyn Nyx




⭐⭐⭐



This book is about homophobia and racism written within the framework of a romance.

Heather King had come to Nashville to realise her dream of becoming a singer. However, she finds that rather than singing her real talent lies in discovering talent and becomes a part of a record label. Fearful of her career being derailed, she is firmly in the closet. She dreams of starting her own indie label and not hiding any more. This dream seems to be within her reach in a couple of years.

Louie Francis, a masculine presenting butch, wants to become a songwriter and comes to Nashville in search of her break. Gabe is a magical singer, with one drawback – he is not white.

Heather, a high femme, falls into lust with Louie on sight – much to her own surprise because she always thought that she preferred women like herself, femmes. The lust is returned (and then some) by Louie.

The entire book is about their struggle to actually act on their attraction within the boundaries set by Heather who is certain that she doesn’t want to toss away everything that she had worked so hard for.

You can completely empathise with Heather even when she is sending mixed signals or is faced with a Sophie’s Choice kind of situation and chooses to let Louie down. The pressures of being gay in a world that destroys alternative lifestyles can be felt keenly.

These were tough topics for the author to deal with and fit into the structure of a romance and is a fairly good effort.
