Bridal shoe company owner Lori Hanover is in way over her head. First, her designer sister has fallen head over heels for the rock star fiancé of a client - talk about bad PR! Now her business is falling apart. Lori's only hope in saving her company is making the world believe it was true love, even if she's not so sure herself. Her best bet? A song. For this she turns to the most frustrating musical recluse in America, Dash Mills, a man who could pass for Thor's sexier brother. And even though this former rock superstar agrees to help, it comes at a price…

When Lori agrees to Dash's terms, he thinks she's the one in for a challenge. But the more time he spends with this spitfire bombshell, the more tempted he is to play her—in more ways than one. But Dash left behind the rock and roll life for a reason. And seductive as Lori may be, if she drags him back into that world, this time he won't forgive himself...or her.

Erin: It’s always a bit hard to review a book where you like the plot and you like the characters but there was just a little something missing that keeps it from being a great book. That’s the case with Ally Blake’s Resisting the Musician. I really loved the plot arc of Lorelai tracking down rock star recluse Dash to write a song that will save her business, but unfortunately this wasn’t quite enough for me to fall in love with the story. Lorelai has some good qualities; I always love a heroine that is strong and independent, but when that confidence turns harsh and judgmental, well, then, my enjoyment goes down. Such was the case with Ally Blake’s Lorelai Hanover. I also didn’t quite buy into the chemistry and connection between her and Dash Mills. I wanted to, but I in the end things just sort of fell flat.

I think this was mostly a case of this book just not working for me. The writing was pretty solid and the blurb was enough to pique my interest. Give this one a chance, you might like it more than I did.

Erin is a book addict! She loves books of all kinds, but her favorites are Contemporary Romance or YA (and she reads both boy/boy AND boy/girl, sometimes even girl/girl!) She's been reading since she could hold a book in her hands and doesn't see that changing any time soon. Give her a Coke, kick ass tunes from her favorite playlists, and a book, and she's in reading heaven.

She's a Texan, though she drinks her tea plain and NOT sweet. She loves cheesecake, strawberry limeade's from Sonic and her favorite color is purple. In her books, she loves an HEA, but she never minds if the road is rough to get there, as long as the reward is worth the struggle.
