When 27-year-old pop sensation Brooklyn Heart steps in front of a microphone, her love songs enchant audiences worldwide. But when it comes to her own love life, the only spell she’s under is a dry one.
So when her label slots her for a Grammy performance with the sexy and soulful Jason Monroe, she can’t help but entertain certain fantasies... those in which her G-string gets more play than her guitars'.
Only one problem. Jason is a lyrical lone wolf that isn’t happy about sharing the stage—nor his ranch — with the sassy singer. But while it may seem like a song entitled ‘Jason Monroe Is an Arrogant Ho’ basically writes itself, their label and their millions of fans are expecting recording gold…
They’re expecting The Duet.
The Duet will be priced at $2.99 for two days post-release, then the price will bump to $3.99!
The M Lounge was the hippest and most discreet club in LA. If there was any hope of me locking down a one-night stand, M Lounge was the place to go.
“I can’t drink much tonight because I have that meeting with my record label in the morning,” I warned as we passed through the back entrance to the club and headed up a set of stairs that were used exclusively for the VIP level. Fun fact: one time I was going up those stairs when P. Diddy was coming down, and he totally touched my ass. Allegedly.
“Just to clarify: if you’re begging me for tequila shots at midnight, threatening to kill my first born if I don’t give them to you, I should still tell you no?” Cammie asked, just to ensure the boundaries were set. Better safe than sorry.
“That was one time and it was in Cabo,” I protested. “What else are you supposed to do in Cabo other than challenge a mariachi band to a tequila shot contest until the lead singer passes out beside a donkey?”
Cammie held up her hands and started listing off items. “I dunno— enjoy the beach, check out the museums and the culture—”
“That was a rhetorical question,” I interrupted as we made it to the top of the stairs.
As if by magic, the black curtain in front of us swept to the side, opening up an entire room of drunken debauchery before us. In one corner, a celebrity who shall remain nameless (we’ll call her Nennifer Janiston) was sucking face with a sexy man, and across the room two of the funniest women in comedy were doing body shots off of a waiter from the club.
“Welcome to the behind the scenes of Hollywood,” I whispered to Cammie.



REVIEW

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.

I don't think I laughed this much, while reading a book, in a long time. The thing is, all while laughing, the angst in this book almost made my head explode.
Brooklyn Heart is expected, by her record label, to write a duet with the sexy (and always brooding) Jason Monroe. They clash right from the start with their opposite personalities. They need to put their differences aside, but some things just aren't that easy....

R.S. Grey has seriously done it again!! She somehow combines humor and sexy, into a novel, that will make you unable to put it down until the last page. I laughed out loud so often, that I got strange looks from family members. Finally, all I could say was 'Don't eat the grapefruits'.
You'll want to dislike Jason for.. well... most of story. But yet, you'll find yourself attracted to his quiet sexiness. It's that love/hate relationship between him and Brooklyn that will keep you at the edge of your seat. And Brooklyn... her and her sister have the sort of relationship that makes people jealous. The banter between the two of them is refreshing and hilarious.

Not sure if you should read this book or not? RS Grey has proven, yet again, that writing is what she should be doing for the rest of her life.

5 out of 5 stars

I am a lover of books, chocolate, reality TV, black labs, and cold weather. Seriously, if I had it my way, I would be curled up on the couch with all of those things... everyday.
I live in Texas where I spend my free time writing and reading. My favorite authors include Mindy Kaling & Jonathan Safran Foer. I'm a comedy geek and love all things "funny". Women like Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Mindy Kaling are definitely the biggest inspirations for my writing, though I think my work tends to skew a bit smuttier than theirs.
