REVIEW: Music of the Heart by Katie Ashley
of their summer tour and decide if she’s finally ready for the limelight by becoming its fourth
member. Of course, she never imagined stumbling onto the wrong tour bus at Rock Nation
would accidentally land her in the bed of Jake Slater, the notorious womanizing lead singer of
Runaway Train. When he mistakes her for one of his groupie’s, Abby quickly lets him know she
sure as hell isn't in his bed on purpose.
Jake Slater never imagined the angel who fell into his bed would resist his charms by promptly
kneeing him in the balls. Of course, the fact she seems like a prissy choir girl makes her anything
but his type. So he is more than surprised when after betting Abby she wouldn’t last a week on
their tour bus, she is more than willing to prove him wrong. But as Jake’s personal life begins to
implode around him, he finds an unlikely ally in Abby. He’s never met a woman he can talk to,
joke with, or most importantly make music with.
As the week starts comes to a close, neither Abby nor Jake is ready to let go. Can a sweetheart
Country songstress and a bad boy of Rock N Roll actually have a future together?
Rockstar + Tattoos + Bad Boy + Good Girl = Amazing. Let's just get that out there on the table right now. I love all things in this book, so I knew it'd be great. I heard about this one several months ago and was really looking forward to its release. It definitely did not disappoint!
I loved a good rockstar romance, but a lot of them are very similar. Katie Ashley brought some unique twists and a fresh new story. I really enjoyed the fact that I didn't guess all of the twists and turns this book would take within the first 5%.
Jake, oh Jake. He comes off as this tough guy who doesn't let anything ruffle his feathers. He initially appears to be your typical rockstar. And then you hear about his mom. Total momma's boy. It is sweet and shows a completely different side to him. He takes that same compassion and love and gears it towards Abby. It is sweet without being over the top!
Abby, sweet Abby. What a sweet, but oh so feisty girl! I loved that she stood up for her values and what she believed in without being a doormat or appearing to be fanatical. She was strong, but not dominating. while she was secure in herself, she also needed love and affection.
Overall, I absolutely adored this book. I'll definitely be reading it more than once! I'd highly suggest it for anyone that loves a good rockstar love story!
