Music Notes Synopsis:

That’s what I came to do.

I was prepared to do just that until I walked into my audition and saw him. Tall, mysterious, and gorgeous to boot, he was sitting at the coaches’ table with three others, ready to judge my performance, and decide my future. Yet, since I’d walked onto the stage, he continued to look at anything but me. So, I did the one thing I was there to do: sing. When I opened my mouth and let those words spill from my lips, he finally looked up. Those startling, dark eyes collided with mine with such intensity that I knew one thing for certain: I would never be the same.

I am Layne Carter, newest contestant on Rising Star, the biggest singing competition on reality television. Nothing can stop me from giving this show my all. Not my horrible diva roommate. Not the fact that I'm terribly homesick and miss my family. And certainly not my uncontrollable growing attraction to my coach, Beau Tanner, award winning country superstar. Nothing will stand in my way.

And I’m wrong.

Music Notes is a great book if you love reality TV shows that are like The Voice. If you can believe it, I have never seen The Voice and don't really like reality TV. This was a fun way to get to know the behind the scenes of shows like this, while having a great love story to go with it. 

Layne is a single mom, and one heck of a singer. Her family and friends force her to go on the TV show Rising Star. They sent in her tape, and she got in. Now, she just needs to win over the audience and America. 

Beau is a judge in Rising Star. He is also a super hot country star. Nothing that is on Layne's line of interest. She is a rocker chick. For some reason, she chooses Beau as her mentor and feel something right off the bat with him.

Beau's feeling are pretty much the same as when it comes to Layne. He is her mentor, so there is some silly rule they can't be involved. And, there is the fact that Layne doesn't know why a hot shot like Beau would be into her. Kayne has her own issues. She has not had it easy in the love department and now she is a single mom who needs to put her son first. 

The ending of this book was pretty cool. There is 2 ending and you got to choose the path Layne takes. I am a sucker and read both.

This was a cute story if you love reality TV shows. A must read for lovers of all reality music TV!
