Idiot

Did all reviewers forget to mention Jake was an A%#wipe? After how he treated her at the beginning of the book, they passed a point of no redemption. D.O.N.E!!! He never attempts to truly make it up to her. AND after saving herself, she deserved someone more worthy. ...
Did all reviewers forget to mention Jake was an A%#wipe? After how he treated her at the beginning of the book, they passed a point of no redemption. D.O.N.E!!! He never attempts to truly make it up to her. AND after saving herself, she deserved someone more worthy. I hate these new storylines that try and baptize manwhores through some symbolism of female virginity. That was the old romance book formula from the 1980s.

    wow, they made Jake really really really hard to like here. He was not a likeable character at all.

    Well

    The beginning was amazing, but after Abby and Jake "fell in love", Abby lost the kickass attitude seen in the beginning and just becomes your common "oh-i-love-him-so-much-even-though-we've-only-known-eachother-a-week"!!

    I seriously did mot like Jake after the two got together. He's just this crying pansy. I know his mom has cancer but really?! The author made him out to be a bad ass bsd boy but he's not. Just a man whore.

    And the sex scenes SUCK!!

    How about that cover? YUMMY, right? I definitely thought so; however, the saying "don't judge a book by its cover" can go both ways. I'm always looking for a new series centering around a bad boy Rock God and a woman worthy of his unfettered attention. When I found this one on Amazon along with an average rating of 4 stars, I thought I'd found my next obsession. I never like saying I'm wrong, but on occasion, it's a must. And Music of the Heart just wasn't for me. At all.




    Sure Jake Slater started out the book being all sexy with all his flirtations and his alpha male ego. His manipulating of Abby to stay on their bus for a week instead of running to her brothers' band where she was supposed to be provided a ton of potential.




    Abby was supposed to spend a week touring with her brothers' band, Jacob's Latter - a Christian rock band, so she could decide whether or not she wanted to live her life in the limelight. Instead, she accidentally finds herself on Runaway Train's bus, in Jake Slater's bed to be exact. Jake is the womanizing lead singer of this hard rock band, and Abby landing in his bed would be the beginning of his metamorphosis into an upstanding one-woman man.

    Ok

    Not as good as the Proposition or Proposal, but kind of cute

    It was OK

    I loved the idea of this story. I liked the perspective from each of them but it just never "popped" like it could of. The characters were interesting but the story became redundant. "Get together....push away...get together....push away"

    I would give the author another shot though.
