Review: Tone Deaf by Olivia Rivers

Tone DeafHis world is music. Her world is silent.

Ali Collins was a child prodigy destined to become one of the greatest musicians of the twenty-first century—until she was diagnosed with a life-changing brain tumor. Now, at seventeen, Ali lives in a soundless world where she gets by with American Sign Language and lip-reading. She’s a constant disappointment to her father, a retired cop fighting his own demons, and the bruises are getting harder to hide.

When Ali accidentally wins a backstage tour with the chart-topping band Tone Deaf, she’s swept back into the world of music. Jace Beckett, the nineteen-year-old lead singer of the band, has a reputation. He’s a jerk and a player, and Ali wants nothing to do with him. But there’s more to Jace than the tabloids let on. When Jace notices Ali’s bruises and offers to help her escape to New York, Ali can’t turn down the chance at freedom and a fresh start. Soon she’s traveling cross-country, hidden away in Jace’s RV as the band finishes their nationwide tour. With the help of Jace, Ali sets out to reboot her life and rediscover the music she once loved.

Kerry's 4 of 5 star review

I was asked to review this book by the author and I'm so glad I said yes! I love a typical romance. Girl meets boy, fall in love live happily ever after. This is what tone deaf is but with an added layer.
I have only read one other book where the main character has a disability and it takes a lot of guys for the author to write about it. Ali is deaf but that doesn't stop her wanting to live, what stops her is her abusive father. Jace is your typical rock star arrogant thinks he can do whatever he wants when he wants until he meets Ali that is.
I loved all of the band. Killer and Arrow are amazing another thing I don't think I have read about in a rock band is gay members this book is just throwing out what's acceptable and making it work so well. We didn't really get to know Jon to well so I'm holding out hope for a book for him or maybe killer and arrow.
This book made me laugh cry made me so angry at times but the ending made it all worth it.
