Ashley Davis is over her high school 'bitch' label and has decided to reinvent herself. College offers a new beginning, a chance to be different. After being assaulted, she's realized that she needs to change and college is just the place to do it. Nobody knows the Ashley she used to be and she'd like to keep it that way.
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.

4 Star Review

Changing Tunes was the first book I have ever read by Heather Gunter. I will definitely be reading her first two books to better understand Ashley's past. I didn't care for Ashley in the beginning of this book but she definitely redeemed herself by the end of the book.

Ashley is on her way to college to get away from her past and her overbearing father. She wants to start fresh in a place where she doesn't know anyone. She just wants to focus on school and getting good grades to make her dad happy.  On her first day there she meets her roommate Mac who quickly becomes a close friend to Ashley. She is always pushing Ashley to stand up for herself and to not let her father control her. The only control Ashley feels she has in her life is in the bedroom with the many men she sleeps with. On her first day of classes Ashley is partnered with Zeke in chemistry class. They are immediately attracted to each other but Ashley is afraid to let anyone get to close as she feels she is not worthy of love because of things that have happened in her past.

"Control is a hard thing for me to relinquish, and it's something I've always craved. For some reason with you, I don't feel that need. I think with you, I can let it go."

Zeke is a sexy, nerdy, intelligent guy who sees something special in Ashley. He spends as much time with her as possible and feels a need to protect her. They both decide from the beginning that neither one has time for a relationship but they can be friends. As time goes on, staying just friends becomes difficult and they decide to give a relationship a try. Zeke is always going back home on the weekends and never asks Ashley to go with. She starts to question if he has another girl in his life. Zeke is hiding a huge secret from Ashley. Will it tear them apart once he confesses or will they be able to work through it?

"You aren't just a piece of ass to me. God, you are so much more. Let me show you what you mean to me. Let me make you feel good. I don't just want this with you, I want so much more. I want all of you, Ash."

The chemistry between Zeke and Ashley is beautiful. I loved all the side characters in this book and I hope to see more of them in future books. This book will take you through every emotion possible. I did feel that certain scenes were a little rushed but overall Heather did an amazing job with this one and I can't wait for the next one!!

Heather is a devoted mother of three gorgeous boys.  She balances spending as much time with them as possible with writing, updating her Into the Night Reviews book blog and her day job.  Her love of animals sees her home in Canton, GA bursting with numerous dogs and ferrets.

Heather campaigns passionately for anti-bullying initiatives and has a strong conviction to reduce peoples suffering at the hands of bullies.

A talented singer, who once dreamed of pursuing a career in that field, she has put that goal aside in exchange for her writing.  A self proclaimed geek, whatever spare time she has is spent curled on the couch reading and listening to music.

Look for Tattered Pieces by Heather Gunter - Coming Soon

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?
