After getting kicked out of her own band—by her own boyfriend—Presley Mason finds herself back in Wisconsin, helping her parents run their renowned music store. Instead of belting out powerhouse vocals to sold-out crowds in L.A., she’s stocking shelves and inspecting rental violins. But the shop isn’t all bad: When she’s vacuuming up late one night, she bumps into the guitar teacher with the smoldering amber eyes and the killer tattoo. And that’s when things take an interesting turn.
Presley soon finds that Paul Kellerman is as good in bed as he is on guitar. So why isn’t he stoked to share his band, Jukebox Bleu, with her? Turns out Paul has crippling stage fright, which he’s been self-medicating without much success. But when Jukebox Bleu’s lead singer gets called for military service, the other members beg Presley to front them. Even though she swore never to mix men with music again, the temptation to perform is almost as intense as her chemistry with Paul. Now Presley must decide what’s more important: a second chance at love . . . or rock stardom.
Just A Girl is the first book by this author I have read and while it was cute and funny, I am still not sure if I loved it or if I hated it. It could be that the author’s writing style and I don’t mesh or it may be something else. Don’t think that I didn’t like it, I did but I just didn’t love it nor was I so impressed by it that I am screaming to everyone I know that they must read this book. I just can’t put my finger on it, maybe it was the connection between Presley and Paul that I didn’t feel, or maybe it was that through the entirety I felt like there was something missing overall throughout the book. I liked the premise of the book, but for some reason if just wasn’t one that worked for me.
