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 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.
My Review

3.5 Funny Stars!

I had totally forgotten that I had to review this for the release blitz so when reminded I quickly jumped in and hoped this would be good and not a slow read because that would have killed me at this point.I started this and could not stop after reading about Brooklyn Heart and Jason Monroe's awkward first encounter.Simply put its about two different singers who have but put together by their label to write a song for their duet.

This is one of those books that caused me to have a have a smile on my face through out the book, giggle and want to smack the characters and tell them to sort their crap out.I enjoyed Brooklyn's inner monologue but at times I wanted her to stop thinking and get on with things.She was sassy and I loved her sarcasm and attitude. Jason was an arsehole at the start I just didn't get why he felt like that still don't really it was never really discussed.Like I would have asked..hellloooo what was that crap when we first met eh?

"Does your cockiness have a dimmer switch or is it always set to 'high'?"

"Guess you've figured me out, huh?"

One of the parts I loved was the horse riding! I felt like it was the only part where they actually tried getting to know each other on an emotional level.I think that's the main part why the rating is as it is I really wanted them to know each other on a deeper level and I felt it was mainly physical and about their lust rather than love. The ending part did bring the stars up though that was sweet but we don't get to see them in a proper relationship.

This part had me laughing out loud!

"You're supposed to lift your leg up and straddle her,"Jason said as if I didn't actually know that.

"Oh, really? I thought everyone rode with their asses in the air."
"Well, technically it's in my face,"Jason corrected...

If you are looking for a quick light hearted read that will make you smile this is a book for you! I have enjoyed books by this author and I will definitely be reading others she write.I'm actually really excited for Cammie & Grayson's Story!! Grayson is so broody and omg I want to know more!

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.
