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.
There are too many secrets in eighteen-year-old Bailey’s life. Not just the obvious one: that she told her grandfather she was going on a date, and instead is playing fiddle in a Nashville bar. There’s all the stuff that makes it worse. Like how her younger sister, Julie, was offered a recording contract, and her family is terrified that Bailey is going to mess the deal up. Like the way that Bailey has been acting out. Like the way they’re all mad at her, even Julie.
Bailey’s parents don’t want her playing any gigs at all, but when they leave her with her grandfather in Nashville for the summer so they can tour with Julie, he lands her a music job that’s beneath the radar, playing old country songs in cheesy costumes at a local mall. That’s where she meets Sam. . . .
Sam’s got big plans that don’t include playing backup while his alcoholic dad scratches out a living as a Johnny Cash soundalike. He intends to take his high school garage band to the big time, and as soon as he hears Bailey play, he knows she’s just what he wants. That really ticks off Charlotte, the drummer for the band and Sam’s ex-girlfriend, while bassist Ace just wants to keep everyone happy.
Bailey isn’t at all 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. Something tells her that with Sam, there could always be a catch. And yet, suddenly, her life is no longer about what might have been, and a whole lot about where she will choose to go.
From Publishers Weekly
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.
