My Rating: 4.5 Stars





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.






R.S. Grey sucked me in from the beginning. This book was absolutely hysterical and sexy. I was laughing my ass off, literally laughing out loud.

Before we even get to the brooding and sexy Jason Monroe, let’s talk about the hysterical duo that will have you just about piss your pants from laughing so hard. Brooklyn and her sister, Cammie, are a freakin hoot. The things that they say will just literally have you cracking up. I don’t know how many times I laughed out loud and everyone in the room looked at me like I was crazy. I had to keep reassuring everyone that I was reading and to just ignore me because I was sure it was going to continue throughout. The banter between these two, their personalities and sarcastic comments will totally have tears from laughter leaking from your eyes.

Oh and Brooklyn is funny period but drunk Brooklyn will have your stomach cramping from laughing. This was a great story and R.S. Grey wrote these characters so perfectly.

Okay, so now to Jason Monroe. He was brooding and mean to Brooklyn from the very first meeting. I thought he was a jerk from the get go. He was just so rude and really made my heart ache for Brooklyn with the way he treated her but he slowly starting thawing and working his way in. Towards the end he will definitely have you swooning over how sexy and sweet he turns out to be.

I couldn’t give it five stars because it just lacked emotion and passion from the two main characters. And Brooklyn was quite annoying at times with her over exaggerated reactions to certain situations. I did however love the ending. Also the fact that we get some mysterious tidbits about Cammie and Brooklyn’s high school friend, Grayson, which their story will be revealed in book two and I can’t wait to get my hands on that one.  

All in all this was super funny, sexy and a definite MUST read.






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.








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.
