Review: Ellie Cahill's "Just a Girl."


After getting kicked out of her own band—by her own boyfriend—Presley Mason finds herself back in Wisconsin, helping her parents run their renowned music store. Instead of belting out powerhouse vocals to sold-out crowds in L.A., she’s stocking shelves and inspecting rental violins. But the shop isn’t all bad: When she’s vacuuming up late one night, she bumps into the guitar teacher with the smoldering amber eyes and the killer tattoo. And that’s when things take an interesting turn.

Presley soon finds that Paul Kellerman is as good in bed as he is on guitar. So why isn’t he stoked to share his band, Jukebox Bleu, with her? Turns out Paul has crippling stage fright, which he’s been self-medicating without much success. But when Jukebox Bleu’s lead singer gets called for military service, the other members beg Presley to front them. Even though she swore never to mix men with music again, the temptation to perform is almost as intense as her chemistry with Paul. Now Presley must decide what’s more important: a second chance at love . . . or rock stardom.

Review: Jo 

Having been impressed by my first book from Ellie Cahill, I was very much looking forward to reading this one and I wasn't disappointed. I loved "Just a Girl." It was an entertaining story all about love and music. I was so glad that I took the time to read it. The story followed music loving Presley. After being made to leave the band where she was the lead singer, Presley returned home for a fresh start and met Paul who just happened to be a guitarist of another band. 

Presley was a brilliant character, she was warm and funny and I enjoyed getting to know her. Even though some of the choices she made drove me a little crazy, I loved that she redeemed herself in the end, making me love her even more. I loved Paul, although he wasn't the usual kind of book boyfriend I go for. Paul was far from being the strong hero, however I liked that he was different and he was just so lovely to Presley. Paul was just a nice, chilled out guy. It was impossible not to fall for him. 

I adored seeing Presley and Paul together, their relationship made me happy. With their shared love of music, they seemed to be perfect for one another and Presley's energetic personality complemented Paul's quiet nature. The couple's attraction to one another resulted in a gorgeous romance that had me grinning from ear to ear. 

"Just a Girl" was brilliantly written and kept me engrossed from start to finish. I would wholeheartedly recommended one-clicking this one. It gets 4.5 hearts from me
