Review: Music of the Heart (Runaway Train Book 1) by Katie Ashley

Book Blurb

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 groupies, 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 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?

Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

Abby is supposed to meet up with her brothers while they are on tour.  There is a mix up and she ends up on the wrong tour bus which will forever change her life.  She ends up on the bus with Runaway Train.  It is interesting how she finds herself there and with who.  Jake Slater is such a jerk but the rest of the band instantly likes her.  At first I thought she would be a bit innocent and judgmental.  However she went with things and didn’t let Jake get away with stuff.  She called him on it a majority of the time.  I like how Abby showed the guys her big heart and eventually won Jake over.  It was realistic how she scared him.  She represents more in life and he really didn’t think he could have that.  I like how he really battled himself.  He pushed her away at several instances that the author made painful and confusing for Abby.  It wasn’t a perfect pairing.  Abby had to forgive Jake and see past his walls.  Jack had to understand what he could ultimately have.  It was a great read.  I loved the way things evolved and how both realized what they truly wanted.

The fact that Runaway Train was a famous band gave the story a cool twist.  The life on tour was a back drop to the story.  Things that come with the fame and the tour added to the issues that Jake and Abby had to contend with.  It was a great read and I really liked it.  I give it a 4.5 out of 5.
