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 really mentioned again Her hypoglycemia plays no further role in the story.3 Her personality I couldn t reconcile the different aspects of her personality Is she a deliberate temptress with a potty mouth or, is she the wholesome goody two shoes whose daddy is a minister The book tries to make her both, buthoney, it don t work.Other issues 1 Bree s attack on Abby Seriously 2 The members of Runaway Train except Brayden are supposed to be womanizers Don t see it Throughout the whole book, they re portrayed as the golden boys Too pure.3 Jacob s Ladder I wasn t really exposed to Abby s family that much Sad Definitely a missed opportunity Another opportunity was wasted with Garret s character and his attraction to Abby.4 Jake Slater The resident male protagonist Too mushy Didn t appreciate the story arc with his mother, either When he wasn t crying or spouting inane lovisms, he was a general d bag Could not get behind him He wasn t a strong character A failed depiction of the naughty boy good man theme.5 The fast track Abby and Jake fall in love and admit it in under a week I hate it when authors try to pull this off It is extremely difficult to attain credibility with this sort of love connection Also, if the male protagonist is supposed to be a womanizer or a lady s man, it just doesn t work The transition from equal opportunity lover to monogamist is too abrupt To be fair, Jake is depicted with a couple extra women i.e the waitress and Bree The encounter with the waitress was a token one Jake s sexploit with Bree was silly and mostly surface due to her character s lack of development.My other complaints revolve around the split first person POV style and the juvenile dialogue Another issue, the incorporation of God I m not religious, so I couldn t really connect to this aspect of the story Also, it seemed unnecessary In the end, it s not a story about Jake s redemption or the glory of God If it was, I wouldn t have bought it Therefore, it didn t seem relevant to the story It only annoyed me As it is, I stopped reading and started skimming about 60% into the book.I will say, I quite enjoyed the fountain scene between Abby and Jake However, this scene failed to redeem the rest of the book, in my eyes flag 91 likesLike see review View all 17 comments Dec 17, 2012 Georgia Team Dex rated it really liked it review of another edition Shelves buddy read, 2013,

most.Abby Renard grew up as the baby girl to a family of missionaries Innocent, funny, adorable and sassy, she goes on tour to make some appearances with her brothers band, Jacob s Ladder A mistake lands her in bed with the infamous Jake Slater, bad boy extraordinaire and lead singer of the famous rock band, Runaway Train Jake is the classic rockstar persona I m Jake Fucking Slater, and I can do whatever the hell I want Tattoos, groupies and an ego to fill a whole stadium But, he is just a tortured soul in hiding and a romantic in the making He just needs the right nudge in the nuts Most of all, it s that I want someone like you to want me just for me, not for Jake Slater the singer of Runaway Train I smacked my hand hard against my chest For what s really inside me These two will fight, fall, hurt and need each other They will come to realise that love can overcome any obstacle and flourish into the most beautiful of HEAs I see every single imperfection you have, and I still love you There s no one else in the world for me but you And when you re hurting, I want to be with you When you re broken and shattered like you are right now, I m going to help you pick up the pieces That s what love is, baby Overall, I can assure you, that I enjoyed this story It s easy and Katie Ashley s style is effortlessThe problem is with the characters themselvesAt first, let me tell you that it is unusual for me to really admire a female lead But in that case, I did A girl unafraid to speak her mind, with an actual, working backbone And finally, a woman that doesn t bolt at any given chance YAAAY But Jake is a whole other story He makes it a little too difficult to even like him.I mean, his actions are really indicative of a well known medical conditionAll the Jake mess aside, the book also had what I m starting to call the expected Katie Ashley moment When everything falls apart, relationships are tested and people break down She always manages to pick up the right pieces of her heroes and glue them back together, stronger than ever.Good, expected, no WOW factor story, with a music background and funny banter.Keep an eye out for Katie Ashley Buddy Read, this weekend, with my

meeting Abby, Jake gives her the name Angel Jake bets Abby that she couldn t make it a week on the bus Abby is not one to back down from a challenge Her family is not happy, but she decides to stay on the bus for a week with the band The band see s how talented Abby is, for the first time, Jake makes music with someone He and Abby grow close in a short period of time Jake is going through a lot in his life And he screws up a lot Over and over again I really liked Jake, but I think Abby let him off the hook way to fast for some of the things he pulled in the beginning After the week is up, Abby and Jake make the decision to give their relationship a go She has feelings for Jake she has never had before, and he is breaking all of his rules about not dating for her They have a connection and chemistry I loved the two of them together Jake constantly feels like he isn t good enough for Abby, which is part of the reason he acts out so much Abby is always telling him how much he means to her

that he is worthy of her love I love Katie Ashley s writing Even though Jake aggravated me at times pulling all his shenanigans as did Abby always letting him off the hook easily I liked them both A sweet and emotional read with an ending that left a huge smile on my face I want from this book, I loved a lot of the secondary characters maybe a AJ book, or Rhys, or one of Abby s brothers hint hint

Heart is the 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 year old singer on her way to meet her 3 brothers on tour with their Christian rock band, when she inadvertently gets on the wrong bus and ends up with the tattooed, pierced, rock band Runaway Train.Abby is smart, spunky, sarcastic, and very strong She grew up all over the world in a very upbringing with 3 protective older brothers She has a big heart and is a caring, nurturing person.Jake issighswoonso hot He is the lead singer of the band He is sarcastic, egotistical, arrogant, and has a bad rep and a string of women He doesn t do relationships or open up to women But he is a Mama s boy and would do anything for her.Abby and Jake spark off each other immediately and are both sarcastic and stubborn Before they know it, they are making a bet that she cannot make it on the tour bus for a week Challenge accepted I loved seeing them play off each other She pushes Jake and he pushes her right back Together they are fun, flirty, and hilarious Jake has been broken in the past and he is having a rough time dealing with some situations in his present He is terrified at the thought of letting his guard down, but Abby Keeps breaking down his walls brick by brick And she is such a caring person that she is there when Jake really needs her Even if he does not want to need anyone I just meant that you re a musician s dream girl a complete and total package You understand what it s like to deal with the industry and what a gift and a curse the Muse can be Plus you know all about music and singing To top it all off you re someone a guy could just hang out with and watch stupid comedies Do you know what it s like to have a beautiful girl in front of you that totally gets you You blow so hot and cold with me that I m not sure which way is up It s a wonder I don t need a chiropractor from your emotional whiplash.You re really good at charming the panties off girls at ten paces, but you can t even tell a girl how you really feel when she is up close and personal But Jake is no angel and does not always make the best decisions I wanted throttle him multiple times for being an ignorant ass and doing some pretty crappy things But sweet Abby has such a generous heart and a forgiving nature And Jake is not stupid, he sees how great Abby is But that is a problem in itself because he feels unworthy Abby is one of my favorite female characters I have read in awhile She is young, but knows what is really important and is not afraid to face challenges and go after what she wants She has the perfect balance of having strength but also being forgiving But don t you see, I ve never met a girl who really cared about me and not because I m Jake Slater from Runaway Train Then that s sad because in spite of some of your faults, you really are worth knowing and caring about Their time together is intense and as they get closer they face challenges There were many things that stood in their way and made a relationship difficult But through it all, I totally loved this couple They balanced each other out in a good way As Jake, opened up you could see his vulnerable, insecure side and it just made you want to hug him at least when you were not wanting to whack him for doing something stupid And despite Abby s inexperience, they had serious chemistry together and she was not always so pure and innocent And I swear to God that I do love you I ve never loved any girl like I have loved you You are the most amazing thing that s ever happened to me in my life It s just I don t know what to do with all thisI barely know how to be with someone when I m whole How the hell am I supposed to be with you when I m so fucking broken I may be fifty percent angel, but I m fifty percent hellcat tooI ll be your holy water I ll purify you and wash away the past The secondary characters were also very well developed and I cannot wait to see of some of them in future books AJ and Rhys from the band need to find good women for themselves They were so much a part of the story of the bus and provided a lot of comic entertainment I would like to get to know about her brothers too especially the twins Gabe and Eli And the married band member Brayden and his wife Lily were so sweet and supportive of Jake and Abby and I really liked them Jake s mother was a beautiful character I loved her relationship and support of Jake Their bond was very tender and heartfelt.This book made me laugh, made me swoon, and made me cry both happy and sad tears I felt like I had been on a ride that had it s ups and downs But I thoroughly enjoyed it Thanks to Katie Ashley for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.Blog Tour on April 3, 2013 at Reviews by

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, you guessed it, it was the insta love And not just an insta love, no, not even close, here we are talking about the mother of them all There was absolutely no built up or at least a semblance of chemistry Just a corny, overused super nova of hearts and flowers that smacks you right in the face when you open the book.But Jake being jealous and unable to express himself was funny and almost adorable So it s partly forgiven That and of course what a manwhore he was at the beginning.All in all, even if i had my share of problems initially, that started to fade away, mostly at the last part which is exceptionally written with dramatic and sentimental innuendos It was really good, and made me feel like i was reading a whole new story Very heartwarming and interesting, exceedingly so i might add THOUGHTS ABOUT THE BOOK I liked how much Jake loved his mama Abby showed a great deal of character towards the end The writing is good I liked how Abby stayed like a rock on Jake s side and at the same time, true to herself Jake s vulnerability was so important to the story s progression I loved the sleeping arrangements Hehe At many points the predictability drove me crazy AJ was

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 a singer Really Then you have Jake who is the lead singer of another band and of course he is a man whore Don t get me wrong, I love me my man whores, but Jake, oh I had so many issues with him.Abby and Jake strike up a ridiculous bet, Jake doesn t think Abby could stay on the same bus as him, but Abby disagrees and joins Jake on the bus for a week Does this sound familiar to you It s silly, but I move forward First off, Jake is just awful Who could be attracted to that He keeps on screwing women Let me give you my version of the story Abby and Jake fightJake flirts with AbbyAbby says no way you can t get past first baseJake screws a girl because he s hornyJake says sorryAbby forgives but still won t let Jake get past first baseJake screws a girl because he s hornyRinse and repeat The story was told in alternating POV s and honestly I couldn t tell a difference between Jake and Abby s voice I mean, can Jake cry any I think when the Hero cries in the book, it has to be a very important part of the story a shifting point , but to me, Jake just cried because he was upset or the sake of crying Jake did a lot of horrible things while he was upset Oh I really wanted to like him, especially when he was trying to redeem himself, BUT he kept on messing up Abby is twenty one, but she acts like a seventeen year old Her inner dialogue was very immature and she was just too forgiving I mean how many times can you forgive a guy I ll admit she kind of got confident towards the middle end, but then she reverted back to her old self soon afterwards I did not like Abby Music of the Heart was too long and had unlikeable characters The plot was subpar and unoriginal I felt like I was reading a combination of many other great reads but was getting a very bad knock off It PAINS me to write a negative review, because I am a fan of Katie Ashley I just don t understand what went wrong I m will not move forward with this series BUT I will give Katie Ashley s Net and Lies a go because I truly believe this was just a one time mess up flag 17 likesLike see review View all 10 comments Aug 21, 2013 Shurrn rated it really liked it review of another edition Shelves

for sex and sex only but is this what he really wants There are times in the book where Jake shows his vulnerability, his caring side he s afraid he s not good enough for Abby and this is when you fall in love with him and swoon So we ve established this story is about your innocent girl meets bad boy rock star, the leading characters have interesting back stories and a fabulous supporting cast Music of the Heart has all the elements for an enjoyable sexy read and that s what it was for me, light, sweet, nice and enjoyable To make it epic and amazingly fabulous it needed , for me personallyWhy At times the conversations between characters were a little unbelievable and even unnecessary, in my opinion Sometimes you don t need a big signpost to know something savvy readers can deduce the obvious I found it difficult to truly believe parts of the story view spoiler how much she still wants and desires Jake 2 minutes after hearing him have sex with another girl Also the drama at the end, where he rejects her, was again not really plausible for the character or situation, imo hide spoiler all that said I still enjoyed it and even loved it in places, I found myself smiling through most of it, apart from when it made me cry feeling is good.I just needed something angst truth in the writing showing and less telling.Sometimes it warmed my heart, made it swell and was 4 star worthy and then at the other end of the spectrum I found I was cringing at the cheesinessI guess it comes down to Do I think the character would actually say that and in a lot of cases, in this book the answer was no sorry There were some truly beautiful lines and sentiments. she taught me about the gift of giving your heart to someone Jake about his Angel He has a tender heart and a giving soul forgiveness is so much easier than regret Jake s Mum There were some delicious sexy times body hummed in response to his closeness Mmm, you have magic fingers Jake chuckled You have no idea, babe view spoiler In the end of course they lived happily ever after, which was lovely As a self respecting dude, I d never believed in fairy tales, but in that moment, I did I d found my angel to live happily ever after with. hide spoiler I don t think it s a bad read, just not my perfect book in this space in time I liked it I just wasn t in love with it, maybe another day and my thoughts may have been different I know many others have loved it , so if you like Rock Stars, a sweet love story and fancy a nice light read then pick up this book, I think you ll enjoy it flag 15 likesLike see review

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 This leads to a fun bet in which Abby stays on the bus for one week I know, convenient, right But suspend reality for a bit and have some fun Jake is so full of passion but I would expect nothing less of a great performer I think it takes someone full of intense emotion to be really good at entertaining, and it just pours out of Jake While he did a few things at first that I thought we re brushed aside too easily, I was able to forgive him and move on I couldn t help but fall for Jake even though he had some real highs and lows That boy was all over the place Angel, you re going to have to get used to me wanting my hands and lips on you It s hard for me to hold back, and frankly, I don t give a shit who sees or what they think When you showed up, I thought I would die, and I couldn t think of anything but driving you away So I said and did all that shit just to hurt you, so you d run away You re right when you called me an unimaginable asshole When I gasped, he stared up at me, tears shimmering in his eyes But the moment you slapped me, it was like I saw everything so clearly again I couldn t imagine not having you in my life, and I hated myself for doing that to you Yes, that boy gave me some whiplash It took me a little bit to warm to Abby I felt she was a little too self righteous and na ve, and a little unbelievably so, but I ended up liking her as well That s not to say I didn t roll my eyes than a few times and the corny and unrealistic things that came out of her mouth at times, but I m going to chalk that up to inexperience The fact that she didn t hold grudges, and tried to see the big picture made me like the girl She was all about trying to see the good in people and forgiveness, very admirable IMO This was a whirlwind romance with strong feelings on both sides right from the beginning I d always scoffed at the notion of love at first sight Stuff like that didn t happen Sure lust at first sight, but love Never But now as Jake stood before me, I wondered if it could be true. I think this was of a wild ride than a study in real life here, and usually stories that revolve around rockers are, but who can resist I know I certainly can t, lol Usually, I like my romance to be a slow build, but this seemed to work here Plus, their feelings came first before anything on the physical side happened On that front let me just tell you, Katie Ashley knows how to write some scorching scenes Whoa This was my first Katie Ashley but it won t be my last She had a talent for writing chemistry filled scenes and wicked and flirty banter I m excited for the next book in the

and Abby had going on in the beginning of the book I loved all the band members, though none of them struck me as bad boys either Abby for the most part stayed on the good side of being too good , but there were occasions where she came off as almost too na ve There were times when I just couldn t imagine a 21 year old, no matter what their background, being quite that innocent view spoiler I had to roll my eyes when she thought that seeing Jake soap up in the shower would be like something out of a bad porno really Or when she was constantly calling him a horndog it just seemed silly hide spoiler I liked Jake most of the time too He was charming and sexy, and it was easy to see the soft heart beneath the rough exterior I do have to admit to being blown away at some of his douche moves though When he went for it, he could certainly bring out his inner asshole I was really frustrated with his last outburst view spoiler when his mom was dying hide spoiler because, honestly, at that point he should have figured out a better way to deal with his issues then doing whatever he could to push Abby away I also thought that Abby was perhaps a bit too forgiving Jake would be a jerk a BIG
