In Music of the Heart, an unexpected twist of fate caused Abby Renard to fall into womanizer Jake Slater’s bed. What started out as a small spark between the unlikely pair, grew into a deep and intense love. After a year-long engagement, the two have finally been able to set a wedding date. It’s off to Mexico for a destination ceremony on a private beach. After a heated week long honeymoon in a tropical paradise, the two return to the real world of touring and making music together.

As the newlyweds settle into married life, another twist of fate challenges their love. For once, Abby isn’t able to be the rock of strength that Jake needs. Can the two of them hold on to the strong foundation of love they have built, or will it crumble under the pressure?


I really enjoy this series.  They are quick reads and captivate your attention immediately.  Music of the Soul is a Runaway Train Novella is about Jake and Abby.  Of course, you will get to see more of the band and see what has been going on in their lives as well.  Jake and Abby have been engaged for a year and they just can't seem to fit a wedding into their busy schedules.  Finally, there is a break in their touring schedule and they have set a date for their wedding.   Abby loves children, and she has made it perfectly clear that she wants to have children with Jake.  Jake is unsure if he wants to have children.  Is Jake ready to have children?  Would Jake be a good father?  Would Jake repeat some of the mistakes his own father made?  Is Jake afraid to have children because of his relationship with his father?  Will Abby accept that she may never be a mother?  These are all questions that are going through Jake and Abby's relationship.

Abby has always been there for Jake. She has always been his rock.  She has helped him through some of the darkest times in his life.  An incident occurs, and Abby needs Jake to be strong for her.  Can Jake be the strength that Abby needs to get through this tough time? Marriage has its ups and downs, and Jake and Abby will see that first hand.  Marriage always isn't sunshine and roses. 

Jake and Abby have built their relationship on love and trust.  When one of them breaks that trust, can they find it in their heart to forgive each other.  Sometimes we make decisions that we think are right, and we make them because in our hearts, we think we are doing the right thing.  Will it be seen that way? 

I have to say, Jake won me over in this novella.  You can see how much he loves Abby.  There isn't a moment that goes by that he doesn't show her how much she means to him.  Even the way he speaks to Abby, you can feel the love that he has for her.

This is a great series about the bad boy rockers that seem to be reformed since they found love.  The once manwhores, are now settling down after love have crept its way into their hearts. The Runaway Train family is growing and I am excited to see how Rhys's latest love attraction plays out. It could get messy.
