Afraid of falling into the same patterns she decides that having no friends, no life and focusing on school is the way to go, but she didn’t bank on someone like Mac as her roommate or the tall, dark and completely geek hot in his glasses, Zeke Whitman.
Ezekiel (Zeke) Whitman is driven and focused when it comes to school. When he's forced to partner with a tall, leggy blonde with a slight attitude, he's thrown for a loop. With so much at stake, Zeke can’t afford distractions and Ashley is certainly that. From their first encounter Zeke sees more than just another gorgeous girl.
As Ashley grapples with leaving the ‘old’ her behind, she realizes that sometimes changing tunes isn't as easy as it sounds. Sometimes you have to keep a little of the person that you were, in order to become the person that you want to be.
I yank his shirt up and over his head, and make quick work of the button on his pants, pushing them all the way down never breaking eye contact. He senses my urgency and lets me take control. It’s liberating, but different at the same time. Touch is involved; his. His touch makes me feel alive. I walk us backwards until we fall onto the bed. He holds his arms out to keep from falling and squishing me. I wrap my arms around his neck and yank his head to me, kissing him with all I have. My tongue enters his mouth and makes a thorough exploration. I suck on his tongue and then bite it gently. He groans into my mouth, my hands trailing down his muscles and down past that sexy trail of hair. I grip him firmly and feel him jerk in my hands. I pump a couple of times and then swirl my finger across his tip, running my hand back down, repeating the movement again.
“Sweetheart, you’re killing me.”
He kisses my neck and uses his fingers to roll and pinch my breast, making me even wetter.
“God, I need you now.” I push him and roll him over, straddling him. I lean over the floor and snatch his wallet out of his pants pocket, handing it to him. He grabs a condom out then hands it to me with a playful smile. I play back. “What, you want me to put it on?”
His smile grows bigger. “You’re so damn sexy when I watch you tear it open with your mouth. And when I watch you roll it over me, it nearly undoes me.”
I do what I’ve done so many other times, but this is different. It’s intimate and special. From now on, I’ll only ever do it for him.
Changing Tunes by Heather Gunter was an absolute joy to read. I fell into this story and had a hard time pulling myself away. The characters in this story are relatable and written with a perfect combination of emotional issues, redemption and love.
Ashley Davis is starting her new life in college, trying to become a better person, she is going to steer clear of the “bitch” was in high school. This girl has some major problems, she is described as a complete knockout but they way she degrades herself is sad. I felt for her in this story. Her family life is less than desirable and I don’t think she’s ever had anyone really care for her. When she gets to college, she meets Mackenzie “Mac”, her new roommate. I loved Mac and I am pretty sure she is Ashley’s first real friend. There are also a couple of other great supporting characters that form a pretty tight bond, and then there is Zeke Whitman… THE GUY <3 a="" and="" but="" character="" combination="" damn="" funny="" genuine="" great="" have="" he="" hot="" is="" lethal="" may="" nbsp="" secrets="" sexy="" shock="" smart="" some="" span="" swoon="" that="" what="" will="" you.="" zeke="">
This book has everything I love in a good romance: Love, Loss, Friendship, Redemption, but it also has those twists and turns that I didn’t’ see coming. I have high hopes for The Changing Series; I believe it’s going to be a great series from Heather. Can’t wait to see what she has in store for us next.

Riding high on the waves of success, Dove Sinclair, lead singer of Tattered Pieces, has it all - until one fateful night her party hard lifestyle almost costs her everything. Stupid and reckless doesn't even begin to describe her actions. Getting arrested definitely wasn't in the game plan, nor was an enforced stay in the Serenity Lakeview Clinic. If Dove wants to keep her band, her career and her life, then there is no alternative. The question is, will rehab force her to deal with the things that have triggered her reckless behavior or will she continue trying hard to forget and fade further into the dark.
Jasper Phillips is the kind of guy everyone loves. He comes from a good family, works hard and seems to have it all. Friendly, positive and popular are words people use to describe Jasper regularly. Sometimes what’s on the outside is only what we want people to see, while on the inside we’re battling demons that are too frightening to describe. When those demons manage to catch up to you, the whispers of their world becomes a very inviting place.
Dove doesn’t understand how Jasper fits in at Serenity Lakeview Clinic but something about him calls to her, awakening her desire to feel alive and normal again. As Jasper battles his inner darkness he is drawn to Dove, all the while fearing that if she gets close enough she won't like what she sees. As Jasper struggles to stay in the light, can he help Dove see what she has right in front of her?
