Music of the Heart by Katie Ashley

Music of the Heart by Katie Ashley

Goodreads 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 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?

While I'm sure that many will love this book and series, I have decided that it is not for me.

It was at the end of chapter 2 when the thought came to me that this story was kind of a mash-up of Backstage Pass by Olivia Cunning and Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire. This is the story of Abby, who accidentally ends up on the wrong tour bus and in the bed of Jake Slater. While trying to set things right and get to her brothers' tour bus, Abby gets into a verbal pissing match with Jake. He bets her that she wouldn't last a week on their tour bus and she accepts.
The writing is good and the characters are likable, which is why I didn't give just one star. But I just couldn't get away from the thought that this story had already been told. 

Many times. 

2 out of 5 Stars.
