Publisher's Summary

Twenty-six-year-old Gaby Barreto might be a lot of things (loyal, sarcastic, one of the guys, and a pain in the butt, depending on which family member you ask), but dumb isn't one of them. When her twin brother invites her to go on tour as his band's merch girl, she isn't exactly screaming at the top of her lungs with joy. But with no job opportunities pounding on her door, an ex-boyfriend she would still like to castrate, and no end in sight to moving out of her parents' house in Dallas, it would be dumb to say no to the chance of a lifetime.
Two bands, three continents, one tour. Spending the next 90-plus days with three beloved idiots and eight complete strangers shouldn't be a big deal, right? If only the singer of the headlining band didn't have tattoos, a great personality, and a fantastic body, and if he weren't so funny.... Let's be real: Gaby never had a chance against Sacha Malykhin.

Solid Love Story...narration was not the best ....

Mariana Zapata is an author I admire. I believe Kulti was one of the best books written in 2015. This story is not one that you have the urge to continue into the wee hours listening to. You can walk away and pick it up later.

Rhythm, Chord & Malykhin is witty and humorous as is MZ's style. The developing relationship between Sasha and Gabby evolved slowly and lends itself more to a real life romance rather than a fictional character romance.

The back drop of touring with her brother's band as Gabby tries to put her life together is light hearted and funny. Despite the talent of this author I found that I thought the story lagged. I think perhaps this particular story would have been better for me if I had read it rather than listened. I did not care for Ms. Robbins performance of male voices .... and I found her voice was grating at times.

While I am not overwhelmed with this story as I have been with some of her other works, I do believe this book to be credit and/or sale worthy.

The characters are underdeveloped and the storyline is flat. Building a character is one of Zapata's strengths but she missed this time. The performance din't help. Sticking with Callie Dalton to do the performance instead MAY have helped it some. Disappointing.
