Jared surveyed the room with a line of worry across his forehead. He wore a black button-down shirt with the sleeves rolled up to his elbows, showing off his inked arms. His face had the perfect amount of stubble brushing his chin and framing his mouth, and even in this crowd, I couldn’t help but be drawn to him.

“You okay?” I asked, after he sighed for the fifth time.

Jared ran a hand through his hair, making it stick up more. It made him look even better somehow. “I didn’t think there would be so many people here, you know?”

“Yeah.” I didn’t mention that there were probably dozens more on their way or auditioning on other days because I understood how he felt. This was his chance to follow his dream, to make it big with his band, and now it seemed impossible in the face of all this competition. Villain Complex was good, but we’d only spent one night practicing together, and there were so many bands here, and oh god, the more I thought about it the more I might throw up.

“How about you?” he asked.

I pressed my hands to my stomach, willing it to be calm. “Honestly? No, I’m not okay.”

He laughed and sang my words to the tune of “I’m Not Okay (I Promise)” by My Chemical Romance. He continued with the next lines in the song for a minute, and some of the other people around us turned to watch him serenading me. It should have been embarrassing, but instead it made me smile and some of the tension in my shoulders relaxed. It wasn’t every day a hot guy sang to me, after all.

He finished with an exaggerated bow, and I laughed. “Yes, that song popped into my head, too,” I said. “Unintentional song reference, I promise.”

“It got you to laugh, so my work here is done,” he said, and I melted even more.

La estudiante de música Maddie Taylor parece tener su vida segura. Acaba de terminar su primer en la Escuela de Música, tiene prácticas en la Filarmónica de Los Angeles y planes de ir a una escuela superior de música para componer sinfonías para películas. Solamente sus compañeras de piso saben que practica con la guitarra cada noche y que secretamente sueña con una vida de mucho ruido. Pero las chicas geek como ella no llegan a ser estrellas de rock.

El cantante tatuado Jared Cross tiene una nueva chica cada semana, pero cuando encuentra a Maddie tocando una de sus canciones, ella atrae su atención de una forma inesperada. Su banda necesita un cuarto miembro para The Sound, un reality Show de competencia... y él la quiere a ella. Aunque Maddie se niega a ser otra marca en la cama de Jared, ella acepta arriesgar todo por la oportunidad de convertirse en una estrella de rock.

Una vez en el programa, Maddie descubre que hay algo detrás de la sonrisa coqueta de Jared, y con cada presentación su atracción se vuelve imposible de ignorar. Cuando el programa presiona a Jared a reforzar su imagen de mujeriego, son forzado a mantener su relación en secreto, pero Maddie no pueden evitar querer algo real.

A medida que la competencia se hace más difícil, Jared hará lo que sea para que su banda gane, y Maddie deberá decidir si seguir sus sueños vale un corazón roto.
