Release Blitz + Review: Face the Music by JB Salsbury

Series: Love, Hate, Rock-n-Roll #3

Pastor Ben Langley is irresistible.

His wife died giving birth to their daughter five years ago. His tragic past doesn’t keep me from wanting to unravel him, strip away his buttoned-up goodness, and discover what kind of man lies beneath. If that makes me evil, so be it. I’m far beyond redemption anyway.

Ashleigh Kendrick is freedom personified, an unpredictable wind I want to grasp hold of.

Every Sunday she watches me preach from the front row, wearing her halter tops and tiny skirts, a dangerous temptation. Her favorite words are the four-letter variety, and her smile lights up the darkness inside me. I vowed to love one woman forever. I never realized that vow would be impossible to keep when confronted with a chance to love again.

Face the Music is an opposites attract romance with emotional ties to the past that run so thick they feel impossible to overcome.

"I haven't touched a woman in over six years. Haven't even had the slightest desire to. Until you."

I was really looking forward to Pastor Ben Langley's story after meeting him in Playing by Heart, and JB Salsbury didn't disappoint. Face the Music was a great opposites attract contemporary romance. It was clear that Ben after losing his wife six years ago, still wasn't completely over her. However, there is one woman that makes him question his loyalty. Ashleigh is funny, free and wild. At least that is how everyone perceives her to be. She has been lusting over Ben for three years, but he hasn't really been getting the hint. She has been around Ben for a long time because his brother Jesse is together with her best friend Bethany, who also was Ben's daughter Elliot's babysitter. When Ben is left without a babysitter he asks Ash if she could take care of Elliot until he finds someone else. The scenes with Elliot were my favorite, she is such a curious and smart little girl and her interaction with Ash were super cute.

"I am in way too deep. No turning back. Heartbreak is inevitable."

I was expecting a light and fun contemporary romance, but JB did a great job in having it be emotional at times. She is great in elevating and hooking the reader to the story. I loved the characters and seeing the relationships grow. The attraction and chemistry was great and very sexy. I also liked that the characters stayed true to themselves. Which I find very important. Of course they went through changes, but their decisions made sense. Seeing both Ash and Ben struggle internally with their demons was heartbreaking but it was time to deal with them if they wanted to pursue a relationship with a future. I really loved this book and enjoyed seeing what the rest of the gang were up to. I am so happy with how Ben and Ash' story ended it was just perfect seeing them both be so happy. I hope Ethan (Jesse Lee's band member) is getting his own book, because the last part with his POV has me very intrigued.

"You give me nothing. Your walls are firmly in place while I'm bleeding out at your feet."
