  2. One word Cheesy.I really wanted to like this book Needless to say, I was disappointed I had a handful of issues with the story, but the most glaring travesty took place with Abby s character 1 The giggling Abby is always giggling Besides being repetitive and annoying, it lowered my esteem for Abby s character I couldn t take her seriously.2 She faints Within the first few minutes of being introduced to her character, Abby faints Yes, it is supposedly due to hypoglycemia however, it s never reall [...]


  3. 3.5 Musical Stars Music can inspire and give hope It can show adulation and worship and praise love and people A feel good kinda book, a sweet story about two young, musically talented people, beautiful inside and out A story about the melodies we play and how our hearts respond to them About the actions that don t have to define us and redemption In the eyes of the person that means the most.Abby Renard grew up as the baby girl to a family of missionaries Innocent, funny, adorable and sassy, sh [...]


  4. 2 StarsI ll admit, I have a huge weakness for rock star romances and I m always on the lookout for good one to read, but I didn t find it with this book From the reviews, it s obvious many loved this story but for me, it fell short I had a difficult time staying interested in the plot and the prose lacked intrigue and depth The characters were somewhat clich d and unsubstantial There was a splash of steam but even those few scenes lacked a curtain amount substance Simply put, I was BORED often [...]

  8. I had such high hopes for this book I had been waiting for it to be released and was excited to read it when it came out I am so sad to say that it wasn t what I was hoping for I never really liked Jake and I felt like Abby was just way to forgiving I wanted to love it I honestly did because I have loved Katie Ashley s other books but this one just didn t work for me Although I wasn t a huge fan of this book I will still read anything written by this author On to the next good book.


  9. It KILLS me not to rate this higher I LOVE this author and I LOVE the idea bad boy reformed whore rock star with tattoos I just felt this book wasallow I can t really put into words why I didn t like that Abby is willing to try to be in a relationship literally hours after he has had sex with Bree I didn t understand his emotional freak outs I feel like they were not fully developed or explained apart from the first one I HATE it when everyone is immediately enad of the female character friends, [...]


  10. This was a nice reading I liked JakeAbby, they were good together and really funny Abby was very smart and she didn t get shy and fall in bed with Jake.She liked him but that doesn t meant that she would follow him around like a love sick puppy Jake on the other hand was what a rock star should be a womanizer with a great look and an even better voice They were good together.t friends creating musicd knowing each other then loversI liked the whole band but I think my favorite was AJ, he was real [...]


  11. So I knew I was probably going to like this book because 1 It is written by one of my fave authors Katie Ashley and 2 Rock Stars Do you really need than that Well, she provided so much This book is such a fantastic read It has everything It is funny, emotional, romantic, heartbreaking, angsty, and uplifting I felt every emotion I cried numerous times, sometimes because I was happy, sometimes I was a little sad, and one time I even did the big ugly cry.Music of the Heart is the story of a 21 ye [...]


  12. Even after thinking on this for about 3 days, I feel just as strongly Was Jake schizophrenic or something I mean one minute he s saying some pretty mean things driving home how much of an a hole he is, then the next minute he s spewing how different this girl is and how much he needs a girl in his life The whole time i m shouting make up you mind already I mean Katy Perry s Hot n Cold was written just for this guy And the heroine, can you say doormat I mean, they write saying how she is this tou [...]



  13. SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER A childish, doormat heroine Slut shame, manwhore, sex and religion Not a good combination A virgin sexy vixen heroine So ot And to make it short hero gotta a blow job from a random waitress after heroine made him hard and heroine saw them leaving the back room at restaurant Then next day she saw him going to the bus bedroom with his frequently hook up and heard them have sex After the heroine comforted him the day before and slept just sleeping with him so he woul [...]


  14. Whistle Hum tap your foot and sing along to the music.Music of the Heart by Katie Ashley is a sweet, sexy treat that will have you smiling and turning up the radio We jump right into the fun when our heroine, Abby, ends up on the wrong bus of rockers Add in a knee to the nuts, instant chemistry, and a dare sparks start flying These pages are filled with hot tattooed rockers, music, sex, banter, and blow jobs All the right ingredients to sweep me off my feet Hell this story even had one of my all [...]


  15. 3,5 Stars.Well i m not gonna lie It was good and i loved all the secondary characters, but i had a huge problem with Abby s naivety and Jake s assholish ways.Thankfully though that changed later on when we were lucky enough to be adorned with crazily sexy or cute scenes, entertaining dialogues and laughable situations as much as deeply sentimental develpoments and bittersweet plot twists.However not everything was fine, my main problem never stopped bothering even when it seemed irrelevant, yes, [...]


  16. 2 Stars HUGE SIGHI really really really wanted to like Music of the Heart It had a lot of elements in a novel I enjoy, such as bad boy rocker with tats, sweet na ve virgin Heroine and crazy love tension, HOWEVERI JUST COULD NOT GET INTO IT.I see the reviews and I just don t get it I am highly disappointed since I like Katie Ashley and The Proposition was fantastic So What went wrong So you have sweet virginal Abby, who is tagging along her brother s band tour, but doesn t know if she wants to be [...]



  17. 4.5 stars I love Katie Ashley writing style.Abby, a Christian good girl, ends up on the wrong tour bus on her way to meet her brothers Christian rock band She ends up making a bet with the notorious womanizer, Jake To win the bet she must stay on the tour bus with him and the band for a week.This story dealt with wrong doings and forgiveness Jake s mom, Susan, summed it up best, Just remember that forgiveness is so much easier than regret I still want to know what happened to Abby getting a tatt [...]


  18. It was a charming read, I enjoyed it.This was a solid 3.5 stars.There were a few moments of head shaking regarding the whiplash speed of mood swings between the two main characters, but quite honestly, it must be a challenge for an author to wrap up a love story in 600ish pages rather than a three or four book series Other reviewers were unhappy with the speedy pace of their relationship, mostly claiming that it was unrealistic Are we really reading this genre for the realism and probability of [...]


  19. 3.5 Stars for this Sweet, Music of the Heart, read I had made a bet with the notorious womanizing lead singer of Runaway Train to stay on their bus for an entire week What the hell had I been thinking My experience with guys was pretty much non existent Our leading lady is Abby, she s 21 and innocent a singer, guitarist, and training to be a nurse A hard working sweet, beautiful girl who s sassy and feisty You re like a guy s wet dream Jake Our hunk of a man is Jake, xy as hell, and a complete, [...]


  20. 3.5 StarsI have been waiting in eager anticipation for Music of the Heart ever since I laid eyes on that delicious cover just look at it drools and read the description This was such a fun and intense read, full of emotion and ups and downs Abby is about to join up with her brothers rock band on their tour as their new lead singer When a miscommunication lands her on the wrong tour bus and in the bed of Jake Slater, the lead singer of the famous band Runaway Train, Abby is shocked out her mind T [...]



  21. O.M.G Katie has hit another home run This story wasn t good It was amesomely fantastic Oh where to even begin with this book Abby is all set to meet up with her brothers The Christian Crossover Group Jacob s Ladder to start her life as part of the band She flies out to meet up with her family at a Mega Concert, much like Woodstock, and finds herself rushing to catch their bus before they take off for the next town Weaving her way through hundreds of buses that all look alike, she asks a Roadie w [...]


  22. 3.75I ve gone back and forth with my rating for this one hence the funky rating There was a lot to like about this book It was very much what I would describe as a rock star fairytale a la beauty and the beast You have Jake the bad boy rock star although, to be honest, while he was no choir boy, he was pretty darn mild for a rock star , who gets the sweet innocent girl, Abby, to stay with him She ends up seeing the good man behind the fa ade, falls in love, and changes the beast into a prince.I [...]



  23. Finished In one day Didn t even like that I had to put it down to eat For those of you that might actually see my reviews, you should know that character development is HUGE with me I also need to be able to visualize I m sure I m not the only one and that s not why I m saying this I m saying this because this book right here Music of the Heart I was right there I WAS Abby Jake was wooing me Every emotion, every second of angst every second of pleasure, they were MINE Within the first chapter of [...]


  24. Has good bones, but strangely feels flat to me I got a little frustrated with some basic contradictions For example, how can she keep claiming that she will never leave him WHILE she is running away Plus, every time I read about a dark haired rocker with a lithe body and tats, I can t help but picture Adam Levine even though he gets dissed big in this book


  25. another romance with a douchbag hero and a doormat heroine I swear I m gonna make a shelf for this review show


  26. DNFI am not rating this one, because even though I tried really hard, I can t finish it Far too many inconsistencies, a so called bad boy who just isn t bad, plus a little preachy for my taste.I did enjoy Katie s other books, so I know that I can read books she has written but this one really wasn t for me I hate not finishing things, but I just can t make myself do it this time.
