KATIE ASHLEY HAS DONE IT ONCE AGAIN; ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT!!!!!
Abby Renard heads to Rock Nation to join her brothers band "Jacob's ladder" on tour, she is to replace the lead singer.
Miscommunication and a VERY distracted roadie leads her to the wrong bus.....where she LITERALLY falls into the bed of the infamous, WOMENIZING, DRUNKEN BAD BOY, ROCKER, and lead singer of "Runaway Train" Jake Slater.
this is pretty far fetch from reality right?!? well lets forget reality and take a MAGICAL journey of:
- True Love
- Romance and Friendship.
Abby(Angel) is an Innocent, Naive, Strong, Smart, Witty, Independent young women that can certainly handle herself; she is no damsel in distress.
she is also EXTREMELY STUBBORN which is what lead to her to agree, to stay on Runaway Train's tour bus for the entire week.
Jake Slater is a very Passionate, Over Confident loving, Intensely Emotional Sexy, messed up, mischievous young man with a STUBBORNNESS unmatched until he came upon Abby.
The two are instantly at logger heads with each both unwilling to back down. "So you're saying if you had the chance to get off this bus, you wouldn't?"- Jake
"Are you saying I don't have the courage to say?"-Abby.
As you can see they started pushing each others buttons from the moment they met.
Their relationship started with them both trying to prove a point, but it quickly develops into something much more.
Jake gave me a serious case of WHIPLASH with the way he was towards Abby: one minute he was HOT the next COLD, seeking COMFORT from her then PUSHING her AWAY.
His new found feelings for Abby sent his highly emotional state into overload. He had me in knots anticipating his moods or actions, he was also incredibly sweet at times (And little bit corny) but sweet all the same.
Abby was able to see pass his Bravado, to see the REAL man behind the mask he wears to the world. She dug deep as a result he unloaded a truck FULL of shit on her, but no matter what he SAID or DID (trust me he said some pretty nasty things to her and his actions at times was cruel) she NEVER GAVE UP ON HIM.
she saw something in him that was worth fighting for; she even questioned her own actions and affections towards a complete stranger....but when LOVE take hold you just submit and WORK FOR IT, and that's EXACTLY what Abby did.
Her strength was unwavering. when Jake was a mess but she held everything together.
She was always FOCUSED on the bigger picture.
One week CHANGED EVERYTHING for them both but where do they go from here once the week is over.....well your just going to have to read the book to find out!!!!!
BRAYDEN- Married father of two also mature father figure of group, ensuring everything run smoothly, he takes care of the other guys and Abby. A musical man with so much LOVE and PASSION for his family.
AJ "THE LATIN LOVER"- Dancer and joker of the group; he has some serious one liners. He in-fluctuates between trying to get into Abby's pants and being her friend.
Above all he has a SPECIAL friendship with Jake, which is really sweet they share a few awwww moments (tough rocker way of course).
RHYS- Not too much said or featured about him apart from he is supportive, are cares a lot for his band members also friends with Abby and looks out for her but he remains A HOT, SEXY MYSTERY (cant wait to discover more).
Katie Ashley did a FANTASTIC job!!!! the descriptiveness did not falter I completely lost myself in their world visualizing every moment.
All the characters had chemistry literally leaping off the pages, the chemistry between them was just pure GOLD.....kept me wanting more. They has a wicked flirty banter that kept me entertained right until the end.
A key thing that makes a book five stars is Character development and this book was all about the character development; in the beginning they are one way but by the end they have developed into so much more and the development is so clear.
I love this book because it was written on REAL VALUES AND MORALS showing; how LOVE CAN just suddenly show up, turn your life on its head and take you on a incredible journey when least expected.
You cant help but fall in love with Jake and Abby I laugh when they did and cried even harder for them when they were hurting. I experienced it all along with them.
The storyline fits together perfectly,everything was PERFECT. The music references were to die for, GREAT choices.
this book is a FIVE STAR:
Test and Trials of TRUE LOVE.
