My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This quirky and fun read was just a great addition to a lazy afternoon. I really enjoyed the pacing and the flow of the story. I tend to be easily drawn to stories that involve music and this was the story my heart needed to just enjoy the afternoon. Very enjoyable.

Such a fun read!

Nikki Lynn Barrett creates fabulous characters that really surprised me but who I loved! As she puts it, a modern fairytale!

One of the characters talks about writing a fanfiction about Tucker and Quinn and that description is perfect as it that ultimate dream of a gorgeous, handsome star helping the heroine!

Looking forward to the rest of the series.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Queen of my Heart by Nikki Lynn Barrett is book one of the Life Won’t Wait series.

Quinn is tired of acting. She wants to reinvent herself as a country singer. Quinn didn’t anticipate the demands that would come with this career change. Those demands come in on top of family demands and things have gotten complicated for Quinn. Tucker is struggling a bit after a whirlwind beginning to his career. Once he hears Quinn audition with his song, the most personal one to him, he’s hooked. His offer to help Quinn with her career ends up turning into so much more. Will Quinn and Tucker trust each other as things move forward for them or will the past always get in the way?

I really enjoyed reading this book. I enjoyed that it was set in the country music world as I haven’t read too many books like that. Quinn and Tucker were fun to read and to follow their development. I can’t wait to read more!

Queen Of My Heart (Life Won’t Wait Book 1) by Nikki Lynn Barrett

This is not the first book I’ve read by Barrett. Queen of my Heart is an amazing read. This page turner is amazing. It combines my favorite things. Country music, books, fairy tales, and Nashville.

Quinn moved to Nashville after the last time her character was killed off. She moves in hopes of getting a music deal. She wants to provide a better life for her niece. The quote I chose for Quinn is: “For once, I wish I could live a fairy tale life. You’re saving me so I can help my family, and now that I’m here around yours, I wonder how I can walk away after this is said and done without a broken heart. I’ve never had this kind of family togetherness time. Never. And I’ve never wanted anyone to sweep me off my feet before. I still don’t, but you’re slowly changing my mind.”

Tucker is the next country music star. He has had a horrible past. When he meets Quinn it’s after she sings one of his songs. He helps her out when things get tough and falls in love. The quote I chose for Tucker is: “Seems I have a big star in my presence. I’d be honored if you’d let me be your tour guide through Music City. The tour includes some ins and outs of the music scene, lunch with a country star whom you might have heard of- Tucker McGinnis? I might be able to get him to meet you. Oh, and there might be some flirting involved. But in the end run, I’m hoping for a great day and a yes from you. Maybe a little one on one on a six string.”

Highly recommended for Contemporary Romance lovers.

Oh wow great story. The love between Tucker and Quinn is undeniable. The flirting and sass between Tucker and Quinn I loved. The stories of their past….wow….very real and just gut wrenching. Quinn is a very strong, independent woman and I love that about her in this book. Tucker just made my heart ache at times with his past. I recommend this read and it is a fantastic book! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Queen of my Heart is the first installment in author Nikki Lynn Barrett’s Life Won’t Wait series. It is a Contemporary Romance, and I found it to be delightful. This is the first book I’ve picked up by this author, but I know it will by no means be the last. The author has a wonderful way of threading together the character’s lives along with meaningful, real-life situations that make this book a page-turner. I was engrossed from the very beginning with Quinn Winters and Tucker McGinnis. Quinn is an actress who is making the career shift to the country music stage. Tucker is already the King of Country who has lost his zest for the music. When the two get together, will they become the next King and Queen of Country? Will they make sweet music together? I had to find out for myself, and those pages kept turning. I love a good story that has a lot going on to keep me interested, and this definitely is one of those stories. I am looking forward to book 2! 5 out of 5 stars!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Queen of My Heart by Nikki Lynn Barrett is the first book in the Life Won’t Wait series. This is a sweet contemporary romance featuring the characters Quinn Winters and Tucker McGinnis. Set in Nashville, the story focuses on Quinn, a former actress, wanting to start over as a country singer. Tucker, a reality singing show winner, needs a muse. The two meet and Tucker offers to help her through all the obstacles in the singing world. I enjoyed these characters and enjoyed the emerging romance as they worked together. Also, there are some obstacles they have to overcome. Music City is a great setting and gives a different flavor to New York or L.A. and lends itself as a background character. I enjoyed the characters and appreciated Quinn starting her career over to follow her dreams. I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more in this series.

This book is very unique. I’ve never read a book with this story line. I loved it! The characters are unique and broken, and use each other to heal. This just goes to show, we don’t know what famous people’s lives are really like. It helped me remember that everybody has troubles.

I very much enjoyed this book and would definitely read it again! I adored the relatability of the familial relationships and empathized with the real life struggles that were happening. The relationship building was extremely realistic and made me wish for a love like theirs. All of the songs were extremely well written and made me want to look them up so I could hear the melody and harmonies. Music is such an amazing way to say the words you sometimes don’t have the words for in normal conversation, and I love that she used that as a platform for communication within the story as well.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

For Quinn Winters, life had dealt her a bad hand when it came to family. She started off as a model, then commercials, and then a made-for-TV movie actress. After being killed off in every role of a movie, Quinn had enough of the Hollywood scene. She took off for Nashville to try her hand in music. Little did she know that it was more difficult to make it in Music City than she thought.

Tucker McGinnis is Nashville’s hottest country music star. That is until a tragic accident changes the course of his music career. Now he’s experiencing a problem of his own as his past is rearing its ugly head.

Tucker is distraught when all of the sudden he runs into Quinn at Bellamy Records. Being a kind man, he offers to help her get her music career in motion by teaching her the guitar. Little do they both know that this will change the course of both their lives.

How will Tucker and Quinn handle their new friendship? How will Quinn’s niece play into their lives when Quinn’s sister falls into trouble again?

From start to finish this book held me on the edge of my seat. It’s a wonderful story of life, hidden pasts, and finding something that you never thought you deserved.
