More Than Music

#1, Chasing the Dream

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


The first book in a steamy series by a NYT bestselling author! 

They can't resist each other, but their secret romance might tear their band apart...

Classical musician Maddie Taylor secretly dreams of a louder life, but geeky girls like her don't get to be rock stars. That is, until tattooed singer Jared Cross catches her playing guitar and invites her to join his band on The Sound, a reality TV show competition.

Once on the show, Maddie discovers there's more to Jared than his flirty smile and bad boy reputation. With each performance their attraction becomes impossible to ignore, but when the show pressures them to stay single they're forced to keep their relationship secret.

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.

"Sexy, fun, and heartfelt, More Than Music will bring out the rockstar in anyone. A truly passionate love story--both in music and romance. Jared and Maddie's story is a great example of how important it is to be true to yourself and step out onto your own stage." - Julie Cross, NYT Bestselling author of the Tempest series and Third Degree

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 01, 2014 – Predictable but sweet harmonies characterize Briggs's new adult debut, the first in the Chasing the Dream series. Maddie Taylor is a rising college senior with a particular gift for nearly flawless musical recall. She joins a friend's band for a reality-show audition, thinking it's a temporary arrangement until they find a new full-time bassist. The fine print, however, has her staying for much more than one song. She reluctantly gives up a prestigious internship to follow her rock-and-roll dream and soon she's falling for the band's intense lead vocalist, Jared. Will they be able to traverse the quagmire of a televised music competition while maintaining their integrity as a band and as individuals? The scathing indictment of reality-show consumerism and the well developed characters carry an otherwise unexceptional plot. For all its music-scene edginess, the tale is a well-worn standard that gets lost in overplayed details and manufactured intensity.

Great book! I finished reading it in one day.
I think it's every geek girls dream to tame and get the wild bad boy. And to have to keep the relationship a secret adds to the fun & excitement.
Jared & Maddie are my favorite characters & I can't wait to read more about them & their friends.


Sweet, edgy, and captivating... I could not put it down! Gotta love it when the bad boy gets tamed!
