As for the plot. Well, I found the whole rock star business completely ridiculous and cliché, but otherwise I liked it. I thought the family feel of the band was nice and the themes of family and grief were well dealt with. I ultimately loved how the story ended but I couldn't help but find the whole thing a bit cheesy and Abby rather nauseating.
When she arrives at the Rock Nation Festival she's trying to find hers brothers tour bus, but gets on the wrong one. Instead of her brothers, she's managed to land herself on Runaway Train's tour bus. Jake Slater lead singer and all round bad boy, does not make a good first impression on Abby. But despite that there is an underlying attraction there.
After a bet is made Abby finds she has agreed to spend the next week with Jake and the rest of the group. Her brothers are not only furious, but worried as Jake Slater has a reputation with women, and it's not good.
The premise of this story is good, and for the most part I enjoyed it. Though I have to say that the flow of the story varied between clean and homely one minute to crude and raunchy the next. I liked Jake even if he was at times an idiot. Abby just seemed too perfect, and so forgiving. Quite frankly some of the things that Jake said to her were crass and really quite unforgivable. But no matter what he said or did Abby was right there with I forgive you. I'm not sure I bought into their relationship. As to the other members of the group, we only really get to know Brayden and AJ. Of course there is a rival for Jakes affections which provides some drama. The story is told from both Jake and Abby's POV. Overall a nice read. A solid three and a half stars for me.
Would recommend this book for you start to feel these people and hoe their lives are really like loved it
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:
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.Read more ›
