Resisting the Musician
(a Head Over Heels Novel)
by Ally Blake
Pub Date Jul 28 2014
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.

This was fun! Just the description of Dash, "Thor's sexier brother" was enough to pull me in. And it was enough to pull Lori in, too. Even if she did ruin at least one pair of high fashion shoes getting from her car to his porch.
Both Lori and Dash have issues. And the issues were reasonable ones, not far-fetched. It was enjoyable reading how they got past them, to find that HEA. I also enjoyed reading about the shoe designs and the process of learning the guitar.
The supporting cast of her sister, his best friend, his mentor, and his DOGS made for a lovely afternoon of reading pleasure. I will certainly be making a point to read more by Ally Blake.

EXCERPT from RESISTING THE MUSICIAN:
His rumpled T-shirt lifted at his belly to reveal a happy trail and the fact that the top two buttons of his jeans had been left undone, as if he’d rolled out of bed, tugged them on, and headed off into the wilderness.
Also leaving her with the pretty sound impression that he wore nothing underneath.
When Callie had mentioned meeting Jake’s illusive reclusive ex-band-mate a few weeks before, Lori had briefly imagined an overweight, overly-tattooed guy who reeked of bourbon and past glory.
Instead, she’d found Thor.
