Music of The Heart by Katie Ashley
For Abby Renard, the plan was supposed to be simple—join her brothers’ band on the last leg 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?
Flirty and Dirty Book Blog’s Review ~ Music of the Heart by Katie Ashley
Beautiful girl meets sexy Rocker, wrong place at the right time (I dare you not to laugh your a$$ off)… Welcome to Music of the Heart by Katie Ashley!! We all love Rock Star books and Music of the Heart is another MUST add!! This books was AMAZING but being a big Katie Ashley fan I knew it would be! I was hooked right from the start and didn’t want to put it down, if only work and family didn’t keep getting in the way of my reading
Abby is a fun loving young woman who has grown up with older brothers, she’s capable of handling herself around men, all men. She’s career driven but the problem is she’s not sure what career she really wants. Jake is a bad boy (and boy do we loves us a bad boy) rocker who loves the rocker lifestyle, well not really but he doesn’t want to admit it, that is until an Angel comes into his life Jake doesn’t know how to deal with his feelings and it gets him into trouble. Something powerful draws them together but will their friendship be able to withstand the pull between them. All of the characters in this story are brilliant. Jake’s band mates from Runaway Train were hilarious and I enjoyed their quirks.
Katie Ashley knows exactly how to tug at the heartstrings and Music of the Heart was no exception. I loved how Ms. Ashley kept referring to one of my favourite characters/book series/tv series, it made me giddy! Music of the Heart played on all of my emotions; I laughed, got mad and seriously wanted to kick someone in the a$$ and, then I cried because I was in love and my heart was aching. Again, Katie Ashley made me feel completely connected to her characters and the story. Music of the Heart is a beautiful sexy hot love story with a hint of angst and lots of sexual tension… AMAZING. This is one story I would love to read all over again! I really hope that Ms. Ashley gives us more Jake and Abby, I’m not ready to let them go yet! Music of the Heart should be your next read because it’s…. it’s FABULOUS! N. 5/5
