As the lead songwriter for Jacob’s Ladder, the last thing Gabe Renard needs is a debilitating case of writer’s block. After years of meaningless one night stands, he's finding it hard to pen the love-filled ballads the label is requesting. In an effort to clear his mind, Gabe takes his jeep off-roading in the North Georgia Mountains. When a wrong-turn leads to him getting stuck more than just creatively, he’s forced to call for help. To his surprise, the “Ray” who has been sent by Hart Wreckers to his aid is actually “Rae”—a sexy-as-hell spitfire in a pair of tight-as-hell jeans. The combination of Rae’s sassy mouth and rocking body might be the inspiration Gabe needs. But for the first time since becoming a rock star, his advances have been shot down.
Reagan Hart has never been a fan of musicians. In fact, just the mention of one might cause her to throw a tire tool. Her disgust for them started when she was just eight and her mother ran off with a traveling country singer, and it only worsened when at seventeen, her rocker boyfriend knocked her up before blowing out of town. As a single mother taking care of her family's collision business, Rae doesn't have time for hook ups, much less a relationship. And if she did make time, a musician would be last on her list, even one as good-looking as Gabe Renard.
Can Gabe find the words to prove not only to Rae, but himself, that she’s the only one for him?
A wonderful single mum romance by Katie Ashley.
I finished on a heartwarming high.
I loved the characters Gabe and Rae and extended characters too.
Jacobs Ladder truly is a feel good read that you can get immersed in.
Gabe is the drummer and songwriter in the famous band Jacobs ladder and while struggling with writers block Gabe goes out of the city for peace and quiete to find the words.
Gabe gets stuck in mud in his truck after driving of road and is rescued by Rae who owns a recovery business.
When Gabe and Rae first meet Gabe's sexist remark's don't go down too well with Rae who is a feisty character and gives as good as she gets.
Rae lives in a small town with her sisters and dad and runs the business her father started before he fell ill.
Rae is a mother in her late twenties and has had a bad experience with musicians. First her ex who was in a band left her when pregnant at 17 and before that her own mother left when she was just a little girl to run away with the singer of a band on tour leaving her dad and sisters behind.
It's an icy start for Rae and Gabe but Rae's sass sparks something in Gabe and his writers block is lifted, Gabe is determined to spend more time with Rae which takes a lot of persuasion.
Rae becomes Gabes muse. A friendship develops between Gabe and Rae along with her son Linc.
Jacobs Ladder is a heartwarming romance that tackles insecurities and trust before leading to a romance filled with hot chemistry.
Gabe is a swoon worthy guy who has insatiable appetite and the sex scenes are hot!.
I loved Jacobs Ladder and looking forward to more from Katie Ashley. The cherry on the cake, Gabe has a twin brother. I would live more in this series to also see how Gabe and Rae are doing.
