Ok so whilst there were some aspects of this book I loved, generally I found the whole thing a little nauseating I'm afraid. Jake was a better character than Abby, he had complexity, light and darkness, fears, faults, passion, etc. Yeah most of the time I liked him, he was definite book boyfriend material. Abby, however, oh my god! She was sickeningly perfect, never did anything wrong, was good at everything and an 'angel' to everyone. Yawn! Consequently she had next to no personality and when Jake gushed over her I ended up not liking him! He just turned into a bit of a sap.

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.

Abby is joining her three brothers, who are in a successful group Jacobs Ladder. They want Abby to become a member of the band as one of her brothers is leaving to get married.
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.

Okay, so the dialogue was a little disjointed, the story a little far-fetched and Jake's turnaround in character rather quick, but it's a romance novel, so in that sense it gave me everything I could possibly want - a sexy male, hot sex, some cheesy lines and romance. I loved this book and couldn't put it down and was quite glad that Jake became a one woman man quite quickly. I'm not so sure if I was Abby I would have put up with his whingeing and his antics so often, but then I've never had a sexy, tattooed rocker want to take me to bed every five minutes. Buy it you'll love it and the rest of the series as long as you're not looking for a Booker Prize winning, thought provoking story.

OVERVIEW:
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
Lost
Forgiveness
Endurance
Pain
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.
