Blurb (From Goodreads):
After an embarrassing stint on a reality-TV music competition years ago, Riley vowed never to sing again. Now she's behind the scenes, working at the prestigious Sound Sync recording studio, and life is looking up. But then Garrett Jamieson, the oldest brother in the famous Jamieson brothers band, crashes into her world.

Garrett has hit rock bottom, and he is desperate to reinvent himself. After calling in a few favors, he ends up working at Sound Sync to learn the ropes of record producing from the industry's best. And he can't believe his luck when he discovers that Riley has been keeping a secret—she is an amazing singer. By producing her album, he's sure to top the record charts again. But Garrett is forced to use every trick in his arsenal to persuade the sassy girl to record.

Riley refuses to sing—or even entertain the thought of it—and sparks fly as Garrett finally meets his match. But in the heat of the moment, one stolen kiss changes everything. Will Riley be the first person to finally rein Garrett in, or will Garrett succeed in getting Riley back under the spotlight?

“Have you ever thought about producing records? You like having control of things, and as a producer, you’d be calling the shots. You could select what artists to work with.”

This was a YA contemporary romance about Garrett, the third Jamieson brother.

I felt quite sorry for Riley in this story, her mother was a selfish cow who was totally unfit to be a mother. The way she treated Riley as a thing to be used and thrown away was awful, and she really did make me want to slap her.

“Miss. It’s your vehicles and your responsibility. If you had reported the vehicle stolen before the time of the crash, it would be a different situation.”

The storyline in this was about Garrett wanting to go into producing, and choosing Riley as his first victim. We also found out about the stuff going on with Riley and her mom, and we also got an unexpected death!!

“My mom took all my money.”

There wasn’t really all that much romance in here in my opinion. For most the book Riley didn’t even like Garrett.

“I’m going, but just so you know, this changes everything.”
“How’s that?” she asked.
“I’m going to produce your record.”
And he had the audacity to walk out the door.
“The hell you are!”

The ending to this was fairly happy, but I found this book, and in fact this whole series fairly disappointing.
6 out of 10
