Book 2 and the Winner

The second book I chose for The Artful Readers Club is

My review:
5*

This was a great book. Avery and Marcus are amazing characters and I really loved how their relationship evolved through the story. I was also impressed by the song lyrics the author came up with. The proposal at the very end was a little too much for me but I guess it’s what a reader would expect from the plot. I wish there was a little more backstory to her brother Justin. I would have loved to have read more about that.
 
This is the book's blurb:
"After the death of her twin brother, nineteen year old guitar prodigy Avery Jones finds herself desperate, alone, and out of options. Hope arrives in the form of a job opening with Brutal Strength, one of the biggest rock bands out there. Only problem is temperamental lead singer Marcus Anthony doesn't want a woman in the group. So Avery and her manager Trevor come up with a plan involving a Bieber haircut and men's clothing. No one seems to be onto their little con. But what happens when Avery starts falling for Marcus? Will she be able to continue with the farce or will the whole thing come crashing down around her like a house of cards?"

And now for the winner of my Cotton Candy On-line Workshop giveaway.

  1. Yay, I've been looking forward to ARC day :) Love your journal page and I appreciate the extra effort you have made in providing the step by step video, it's fun to see it come together

    But I don't think your guitar wielding heroine should have given the time of day to her sexist bandmate, let alone fall for him :)

  34. Although I can't see the video (something still wrong with blogger), I loved the girl with the guitar, which seems to have fit well with the synopsis of the book. Your draw so well, and the girl is simply a perfect example of it.
