Mac shares a loft in Nashville with her twin brother, Micah who designs video games. Mac has watched her five bandmates met their soul mates, but she has her doubts that the right man is out there for her. Then she meets Derek Blakemore who happens to be the best man in her brother, Andy’s upcoming wedding. Derek is taken with Mac and likes spending time with her. He is not enamored with the press and having their dates being besieged by fans. While Mac is out on tour, they keep in contact via late night text messages and Facetime. What does the future hold? I enjoyed getting to know Mac and her siblings. I liked the romance between Mac and Derek. We get to see how people have relationships in this modern age. We also get updates on the other ladies in the band and their relationships and I was happy there was an epilogue. Mac’s Daring Heart is a lighthearted romance that is a fitting conclusion to the series.

    An amazing story of a strong girl who knows what she wants in life. Mira is doing fabulous. Was romance in the cards for her? You won’t want to stop reading until you find out.

    The last story in this wonderful series. But not the least. I loved all 6 of them! It always amazes me how multiple authors can write a series together that fit perfectly. This one, too. All 6 books are different, about 6 different characters, by 6 different authors. But together they form a great melody. I'm really sad that I now have to say goodbye to the Lipstick Outlaws and their friends and families. I wish they were real, so I could follow them and buy their cd's!

    Great book! I have followed this series since Rissa first started the band with Val. I have enjoyed each and every one. Mac falls for Derek and is determined to see 👀if a relationship between the two of them could work. After several long distance texts and phone ☎calls, Mac and Derek have a few dates. This is a sweet romantic book with a HEA.

    Mac's Daring Heart What a great story on life and love and family. The music world is a very hard world to break into and when you do you need to work hard to make a go of it. The music that Mac played on her guitar had to balance withe rest of the crew and they had to balance with her. This was a great read and a free read and thus is my review and in my words only.

    Amazing loveable characters both old/previous; CC, Rissa, Taylor, Katie Lyn, Cinnamon, Mac, their significant others as well as Val, Jack, Emmylou, Madison. Then we meet new ones, Bethany, Lynda, Derek, his parents Blake & LeeAnn and the fun continues for everyone. More concerts, road tri[s, wedding with a great proposal from 1 of them, new boots, dinners, get togethers and so much more. I'm going to miss Sweethearts of Country Music Lipstick Outlaws and their families.

    Mac is the bass player, or the blood flow as she likes to think, of the Lipstick Outlaws. Although she grew up playing classical violin, that's just not where her heart was. Derek, a Nashville businessman, is taken with Mac and her boots, from the very first time he saw her in concert. Although their very differing schedules don't allow them much time together, this author has them texting each other nightly which allows the reader a glimpse into their ever growing, delightful relationship fille Mac is the bass player, or the blood flow as she likes to think, of the Lipstick Outlaws.

On top of this, Mac has a twin brother who adds much levity to the story. Sandi Layne does a fabulous job of referencing each bandmate and bringing their stories to a successful and happy conclusion. I'm going to miss these ladies and the entire Sweethearts of Country Music series. Brava, Sandi, and all your fellow authors. I heartily recommend this entire wonderful series!!!

They are opposites in a lot of ways. It was interesting watching their relationship grow in such a short time. I really liked the ending to this story because it surprised me in several ways. I am sad this is the last book in the series but there are not any more outlaws to write about. I received an advance copy of this book and I willingly chose to write an honest review.

    Can you imagine getting to fulfill your dream without having to worry about the curveballs that life can throw at you. Mia came from a family where she never wanted for nothing so getting to pursue her dream is easier than most of us go through to have that.

    I liked this sweet and emotional romance so much. I thought that Mac and Derek's story was not only very fun but that it had a real genuineness to it. As we all live our busy lives sometimes thoughts of love fall to the wayside and that is the situation Mac finds herself in. I really felt that these two were perfect for each other and I simply loved their banter. This was a delightful read and a wonderful end to this series, although I am very sad to say goodbye to it.

    This story has many emotions, humor, wit, romance, and an amazing plot. This series is awesome and each book is different but somehow all come together. The author keeps you reading until the very end.

    This is the last of the band members to get a love interest. Mac is content being the bass player. She likes to be in her spot, not in the spotlight. Derek is in the family business of real estate. The story has a few surprises and twists that makes it perfect. This story raps up the romances of the other girls while still making you want to continue following their lives. I hope there are more to come.

    Mac's Daring Heart is a sweet, fun romance. Mac and Derek are perfectly suited and their banter is a lot of fun. Both busy, successful people, they are not often in the same place so they text and Skype a lot. There is such a feel good vibe in this story. I liked how they made the most of their time together. I am so sad to say goodbye to the Lipstick Outlaws, but this book was a fitting ending. Mac's Daring Heart is a sweet, fun romance.

    I received a free advance review copy of this book and am voluntarily providing my honest review. Mac and Derek get to know one another through texting, after meeting at a wedding. Because she is touring a lot and they can't get together for a date. But this is enough for them to fall for each other. I really enjoyed this book and recommend it..

    LOVED IT!! The characters were awesome––both the main characters, Mac's twin and Derek's folks. I loved getting to see the girls in the band interact some more in this. This couple was so lucky to be surrounded by so many supportive people, even though they still felt the sting from those that should have been there but weren't. LOVED IT!!

    I love the twinship between Mac and Micah and that Derek understands that Micah must be part of the equation. Mac and Derek have a difficult courtship considering their schedules. Their phone conversations/texts cracked me up. This was a very enjoyable book.
