    10. This book reminded me why I love reading so much Ms Briggs has brought back a style of writing and story telling that has almost turned into a lost art It s not overly angsty or sexual, the writing sells itself without the need of flashy gimmicks and over the top antics This first full length novel in the Chasing the Dream series contains, dare I say it, good old fashioned writing that has become quit hard to find as of late The morning after I finished reading More Than Music I actually woke up [...]

    11. Anyone that knows me knows that I love rock star romances So when I found myself with no ARCs to read and some unexpected free reading time, I couldn t resist the draw of this Maddie was my type of girl She was shy and loved music And she was so real She wasn t a complete klutz which is often popular and she wasn t model perfection personified either She was real She was awkward with Jared who was beyond hot and a good friend and yes, a little klutzy at times we all are but there was no tripping [...]

    12. Review of More than Music by Elizabeth Briggs 4 1 2 StarsI enjoyed More than Music by Elizabeth Briggs a lot I thought it was well written I liked the author s writing style and voice, and the story line was a nice change of pace from the typical new adult books where the female main character is running from a secret, or the male character has a secret, or both.I really liked the game show idea It made the story very relatable since most people have heard of the various singing reality show com [...]

    13. I am not a writer I have no idea how does that feel like or how hard it might be.But I am a reader and as a reader I do have expectations.When I read a book I want to live in it for a while, I want to be the main character through it all, to have that life and make the best out of it And every now and then I read a book with so, but sooo much potential that I wish from the bottom of my heart I had enjoyed it a lot , because I know that it would have been possible.This being said, what you will f [...]

    14. 4.5 starsI think this is my first ARC ever and I m so glad I had the opportunity to read because it was AMAZING I LOVED IT The first thing that happened in the book that made me think OMG I LOVE YOU ALREADY was that one of the characters was half Portuguese I was so happy because usually Portuguese people or the country aren t mentioned in books so when a book mentions my country I start jumping around and screaming OMG THERE S PORTUGUESE WRITTEN IN THIS BOOK faints Well I think this was a bit o [...]

    15. A sweet 4 stars for Elizabeth Briggs s More Than Music This novel is very much a new adult sweet fest with the way the story plays out Having said that, it is a really good read The writing is much better than I thought it would be and am happy to say that The story has a very redeemable male character and a female character trying to really come into herself They are both music lovers while he s in a rock band and she s been walking the classic line for years Jared and Maddie have never actuall [...]

    16. 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.

    17. I loved this book My assistant, Sullivan McPig, sent it to me for Christmas as one of her favorite finds from this year, and she was spot on that I d be into it, too A super fun contemporary romance set in Los Angeles, with a framework plot of bands competing on a show like The Voice The competition gave a terrific acceleration of anticipation as I rooted for MY band to make it and also provided convincing and effective conflict to escalate the sexual tension between the hero and heroine I loved [...]

    19. ARC provided in exchange of an honest reviewReview original post collectorofbookboyfriends ok review 4.5 stars Well, with this book, I definitely claimed the title FREAK since, the first day that I started it, I reached the 70% of the book in less than 6 hours Crazy, huh Tell me about it From the first chapter, I was deep deep into this story and without realizing how much time had passed, I was over the half of it I was reading and reading and reading with hardly any break I was just flowing wi [...]

    20. 3.5 starsAt A GlanceFun and interesting, but not the best read ever.The GoodI have to be honest, I might have liked this book than most because A my obsession with rock star romances and B I loved seeing a possible version of what it s like behind the scenes of shows like The Voice or X Factor It was crazy I would hate dealing with all that drama and cattiness, so I am happy I got to experience it through Maddie s eyes.Maddie is a music and comic book geek who gets pulled into a band and then a [...]

    21. I didn t know what would happen with the band, but I knew we d get through it Because what we had together was than music It was love Like some of the books I read, I have no idea what to expect in More Than Music I am quite picky when it comes to books about music because I don t want it to be used as something that will make the character cooler Good thing, Dianne once again spazzed about this What I love most about this is the characters because they re easy to read and quite relatable Maddi [...]

    22. Read full review HEREThis is the only book from the bundle Banged Rock Stars, Bad Boys Dirty Deeds that s I ll review alone, and that is because I requested this bundle only because of this book And because this is the fourth book I read in this series, having previously read More Than Comics, More Than Once and More Than Exes now I just need to get my hands on Julie s story.I already said my praise for Briggs writing in previous reviews, so I m gonna skip that I already loved Maddie and Jared a [...]

    24. 1 barely there star and I am PISSED I cannot believe I wasted 3 whole hours to conclude that this is one of the worst books I ve read.First 60% Jared, you re so sexy, please notice me Jared, you re so different than anybody else but we ve barely talked at all At this point I wanted to send the main character in the pits of hell This continued so long and the whole show they were starring in came and went so quickly just like the story , that I couldn t wrap my head around it.I was pretty much pi [...]

    25. Oh my Oh my my my I ve had mixed feelings about New Adult as a genre for quite awhile, simply because it seemed as though most stories were so dark, twisty, and filled with overly dramatic turmoil More Than Music is such a breath of fresh air An NA book that s fun and romantic that I ended up reading in one sitting because I just had to know what happened with Jared and Maddie Oh and speaking of Jaredyone with a rocker fantasy needs to read this book asap, because Jared s hotness can only be exp [...]

    27. This was just okay for me The premise of the book reminded me of the tv show The Voice The ending felt really rushed You re given Jared and Maddie s story and their sexual attraction for one another and you know it s working up to something and then THE END

    28. Also posted at Oops I Read A Book Again Thank you to Elizabeth Briggs for the review copy This in no way affected my views of the novel.I remember anticipating this book so much last year When I first read the plot, I was so sure that I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE I M GOING TO LOVE IT that I practically begged Liz for an ARC I practically begged her to tour the book with me too because PEOPLE ARE GONNA LOVE THIS BOOK I MUST GET THIS BOOK TO EVERYONE PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE That was how my mind was work [...]

    29. I absolutely loved this book It contains so much fun, so much swoon, and so much character development Our main character Maddie is a classically trained pianist She s a self proclaimed nerd who doesn t see herself as anything special, except that she has a secret talent for playing guitar Maddie s love interest is Jared, a tattooed bad boy and the lead singer of a band You might think based on these characters that you ve read this story before, but you definitely haven t Sure, More Than Music [...]
