Description

I was being given the chance to do the one thing I wanted most in the world. The chance was presented to me by a guy so gorgeous, he turned my skin to fire when he touched me. And joining a band was the one thing I was most forbidden to do, the thing that would ruin my future forever.

I was being given the chance to do the one thing I wanted most in the world. The chance was presented to me by a guy so gorgeous, he turned my skin to fire when he touched me. And joining a band was the one thing I was most forbidden to do, the thing that would ruin my future forever.

Eighteen-year-old Bailey has issues—and not just that she’s lying to her grandfather about playing fiddle in a Nashville bar. There’s how her younger sister Julie’s recording contract makes her family terrified that Bailey will mess the deal up. And why Bailey is acting out. And the way everyone seems mad at her, even Julie. Bailey’s parents don’t want her playing gigs at all, but when they leave her with her grandfather so they can tour with Julie, she lands a job playing old country songs in cheesy costumes at a local mall. That’s where she meets Sam. . . .

Sam doesn’t plan to spend his life playing backup at the mall for his alcoholic dad. He intends to take his high school garage band to the big time, and when he hears Bailey play, he knows she’s what he wants.

Bailey isn’t sure where she stands with this boy who has a lust for music and life, and who may or may not have a lust for her. And yet, suddenly, her life is no longer about what might have been, and a whole lot about what could be. . . .

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 10, 2013 – An award-winning writer of romances for young adults (Going Too Far), Echols proffers an engaging though occasionally hackneyed tale about the sister who gets left behind when her younger sibling is plucked from their country-music duo and set on a path to stardom. After her sister Julie s record company bans Bailey Mayfield from doing anything that might interfere with Julie s career, talented Bailey is forced to give up playing music publicly. Though her parents have threatened to withhold her college tuition should she disobey this order, Bailey scratches her itch by taking a job as a backup musician for an Elvis impersonator at a Nashville mall. There, Bailey meets lady-killer Sam Hardiman, who both acknowledges Bailey s talents and seems to have the hots for her, though Bailey later learns that this may be ambitious Sam s way of drawing her into his band. Some story points seem a touch contrived, and Sam often seems too much like a saint, but Echols manages to keep the occasionally tiresome will-they-or-won t-they seesaw interesting by peppering energetic music scenes with girly jealousy, self-doubt, and revelations from a likable, relatable protagonist.
