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

blurp

“Music major Maddie Taylor seems to have her life all figured out. She’s just finished her junior year of college, has a summer internship lined up with the LA Philharmonic, and plans to go to grad school to write movie scores. Only her roommates know she practices guitar every night and secretly dreams of a louder life. But geeky girls like her don’t get to be rock stars.

Tattooed singer Jared Cross has a new girl every week, but when he catches Maddie playing one of his songs, she attracts his attention in an unexpected way. His band needs a fourth member for The Sound, a reality TV show competition—and he wants her. Though Maddie refuses to be another notch on Jared’s bedpost, she agrees to risk everything for the chance to be a rock star.

Once on the show, Maddie discovers there’s more to Jared behind his flirty smile, and with each performance their attraction becomes impossible to ignore. When the show pressures Jared to flaunt his player image, they’re forced to keep their relationship secret, but Maddie can’t help but want something real.

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.”

First of all, just look at that cover.
Look how freaking pretty it is!!

More than Music

Gorgeous.
I got this book as an arc, from NetGalley,and I read it pretty quickly,considering I was going through the most terrible part of the year.
Exams season.
Anyway this one really got my attention after propably 30% in, where the romance between the two characters begin.
Obviously it is a rockstar kind of book, but what differentiates it from the other rockstar themed books, is that the rockstar doesn’t act like an asshole at first because he has soooooo many deep problems that after he meets the girl of his dreams magically dissappear,No.
This guy -Jared- is actually a really nice dude. He just has that “heartthrob,ladies man” reputation, cause he sleeps around.But that’s pretty much what every other rockstar does anyway, so that’s realistic.
I loved the way the story progressed, the pace was really good,kept me wanting more and the author’s writing style was lovely.

What I didn’t like was that somewhere towards the end, it became a bit predictable in the sense that you count the pages and you knew that there are enough pages for something dramatic to happen and for them to make up and live happily ever after.
I was just expecting something else to happen, anything different from the other rockstar books and it didn’t. But that’s alright because it still was pretty damn good.
I gave this one 4 stars!
