Excerpt:

Note: This is an unedited excerpt and the final published version will be slightly altered.

Ax and Izzy are ascending the walkway into the belly of the ship, and I trail behind them. A welcome, familiar face is waiting to greet me at the top of the steps. Fern leans against the railing, her usual sunny face obscured behind a blanket of worry. Spotting me, she brightens for a nanosecond until she takes in my transparent ‘prisoner’ status.
She skips toward us with purpose. “What the hell?” She pierces Haydn with a murderous glare, planting her hands on her slim hips.
“Don’t. Interfere.” He growls out a warning as he pushes past her, hauling me along for the ride.
I shrug my shoulders as I eyeball my friend. “Don’t ask me for an explanation. No one is even speaking to me.”
“This is completely ridiculous, and totally unnecessary,” Fern yells as she stalks behind us like a miniature tornado.
“Babe,” Rylan says, stalling on the steps above us. “Let’s just get to the cabin and we’ll clear everything up.”
Haydn snorts and shakes his head. I deliberately impale him with my penetrating gaze, willing him to look at me so he can absorb the full glare of my frustration. But he’s as stubborn as ever, and he pretends not to feel my eyes burning a hole through the side of his skull. As I continue to stare at him—noting the ashen pallor of his skin, and how his once shorn hair has grown out, now curling and twisting around his ears and over his neck—I wonder if I’ve ever really known him at all. Or if he has ever truly known me.
Because if he did, he would know not to fear me. That there’s no need to treat me like this.

Blurb (from Goodreads):

In this pitch-perfect novel from the author of When Joss Met Matt (“One of those books that make you forget everything around you.”—Sophie Jordan), a rock ’n’ roll diva must choose between her career and her heart.

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.

This is the second book I read by Ellie Cahill after Call Me, MaybeThis was a fun and lighthearted read which I enjoyed but there were a few factors which stopped me from enjoying it fully.

Presley is a famous rockstar but after getting kicked out of her own band and by her own boyfriend, she returns to her native town, to her ever fun loving parents. There she meets Paul at her parents’s music store where he teaches guitar. Both of them are instantly attracted to each other but Paul is in a band and Presley swore to herself that she would never she involved with a musician again and then she gets offered to be a part of the band when their lead singer goes away. Would she be able to handle everything once again or will she mess it up before everything begins?

The plot was pretty good but it could have executed in a much better way. One thing bothered me from the start was that when Presley got kicked out of her own band, why didn’t she take any legal action or state the truth to everybody? I don’t know… this thing is not even explained. Other than this, I liked Presley but her parents were super cool, I loved how everything was with them. Presley tried to stay away from singing as well after that incident but I liked how Paul managed to make her fall in love with music once again. The relationship between Presley and Paul was kind of insta-attraction, I would have liked more if they had taken a bit more time to know each other before jumping each other’s bones.

I liked Presley as a character but I couldn’t understand some of her decisions, like the first one I mentioned in the above paragraph. Another one was totally stupid when she decided to break up with Paul when she decided she was going to join their band, she didn’t even give a thought about his decision which was a pretty crappy thing to do. I liked Paul but he had some serious anxiety issues, I was glad when he finally decided to get help. All the other characters were pretty fun and I liked all of them.

Overall, Just a Girl was an okay read. I enjoyed some aspects of this book and some I didn’t. The characters were okay and I had a little difficulty in connecting with them. Nonetheless, I liked the romance between Paul and Presley. The writing was easy to read and the pace was even throughout the book.

Recommend it?

Yes.
