She's finally found a place that feels like home...

When Cathy O'Dell buys the Honky Tonk, the nights of cowboys and country tunes come together to create the home she's always wanted. Then in walks a ruggedly handsome oil man who tempts her to trade in the happiness she's found at the Honky Tonk for a life on the road with him...

He lives the good life...

Gorgeous and rich, Travis Henry travels the country unearthing oil wells and then moving on. Then the beautiful blue-eyed new owner of the Honky Tonk beer joint becomes his best friend and so much more. When his job is done in Texas, how is he ever going to hit the road without her?

"Ten, hell yeah!"

Cathy has taken over the Honky Tonk from her cousin Daisy and is enjoying being a new bar owner. In walks Travis one New Year's Eve, who knocks her socks off with a kiss at the stroke of midnight.
Both were deeply affected by the kiss, but Cathy tended to fight it more than Travis. She tended to be more rude and harsh toward Travis as a way to fight her growing feelings for him. Hell, Yeah felt like a re-hash of I Love This Bar. It was pretty much the same premise with just a changing of the character names.

Just like in the previous book in this series, I Love This Bar, Hell, Yeah is overrun with references to every country song imaginable. I don't feel like there was a whole lot of anything going on between Cathy and Travis. In the end, I ended up skimming most of it.

So glad you posted this review! I didn't enjoy this book either.

The idea about the songs is cute, but after the 30th song, it becomes annoying and interrupts the storyline!

I thought the tragic event that happens to Cathy in the middle of the novel should have been cut out all together or dealt with in a more serious manner. It was like it happened and then in the next moment Cathy was perfectly fine again!

I have to say this is probably the first and last Carolyn Brown novel I'll ever read...
