Review: More than Music (Chasing the Dream #1) by Elizabeth Briggs

Image & Description from Goodreads.com

Classical musician Maddie Taylor secretly dreams of a louder life, but geeky girls like her don't get to be rock stars. That is, until tattooed singer Jared Cross catches her playing guitar and invites her to join his band on The Sound, a reality TV show competition.

Once on the show, Maddie discovers there's more to Jared than his flirty smile and bad boy reputation. With each performance their attraction becomes impossible to ignore, but when the show pressures them to stay single, they're forced to keep their relationship secret.

As the competition heats up, Jared will do whatever it takes for his band to win, and Maddie must decide if following her dream is worth losing her heart.

My Thoughts:
This book was a fun, quick read.  I'm an avid viewer of the tv show The Voice.  Much of the book was set in a setting similar so I loved reading what it could possibly be like for the contestants on that show.  Maddie is a self-proclaimed music geek who doesn't see her own beauty.  What I liked about her was that she wasn't miss prim & proper who's just waiting for the bad boy to come steal her innocence.  She is a little naive about the music industry but what she lacks in that knowledge she makes up for by being a bad-ass guitarist.  Jared is a guy who finds it easier to play the part of the bad guy who breaks hearts than to risk getting hurt in a relationship.  He has decided his dedication to his music & his band are the only things worth committing to.  When the band needs Maddie to fill after the guitarist bails, she finds herself & her feelings in uncertain waters.  She discovers there's more to Jared than his reputation and he finds out there's something more to fight for.  I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

Recommended for 16 & up.  Moderate sexual content.

I purchased this book from Amazon.
