Waves of Sunday #12

Welcome to our weekly edition of Waves of Sunday where each Sunday we spotlight a book that has been making waves in the book scene or has simply caught our attention causing a riptide on our TBR.

Today we are spotlightling:
Music of the Heart
Music of the Heart by Katie Ashley
Expected Publication Date: March 15th 2013
About the book:
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?

Rachel's Thoughts:
 I love the sound of this story.  I think Jake has met his match in Abby. I like the fact that Abby is in a band herself (or will be), so she'll be able to understand and relate to the same problems and issues that Jake faces.  That sets it apart from the usual rocker romance that I'm accustomed to reading.  Also, I love that Abby doens't fall for him like one of his easy groupies!  I can only imagine the sparks that will fly when she's stuck on his tour bus for a week! I can't wait to read this!

Arlene's Thoughts:
Rachel, what an awesome find!! This made a quick fast track to my TBR and from the sounds of it, I'm moving it straight to the top! I agree with you! I think Abby will not only be able to relate to Jake, but also show him she's not going to easily fall for him, which I bet he's grown accustomed to... being a rock star and all. I've recently become attracted to "Rock Stars Need Love Too" type stories, heck I even created a shelf specifically for them on GR and I think Music of the Heart will make a nice addition. Can't wait to read it either.


  1. This book sound amazing! I have to admit I have been reading quite a few books here lately with rockers in it but I haven't come across this dynamic yet! Adding this to my list to read!

  2. I know, Dione! It's different than the usual rocker story, which is why I'm drawn to it even more. :)
