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.

This book may be unsuitable for people under 18 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

  KU Eligible Mature Content

Brooklyn Heart and Jason Monroe are the two biggest talents in their music label; while Brooklyn conquered the pop charts with her love songs, Jason won his legions of fans with his soulful music and sexy-mysterious aura. They’ve never worked together and never really thought it would ever happen until the higher ups thought it was a perfect idea. Now they’ll have to write a song together and perform it at the Grammy’s. No big deal.

Review | Act Like It by Lucy Parker

I love this book! A well-written slow burn romance with my favorite trope (hello, fake relationship!), witty banter, and a little Pride and Prejudice-esque feel to it. I wouldn’t go as far as to call it a modern-day Pride and Prejudice, but there’s a lot of influence there, especially with the main characters. And […]

ARC Review | Wrecking Ball by P. Dangelico

  Hmm. This is a hard one. I love fake relationship tropes. I live for it! Same goes for the brooding hero and sassy heroine combination. Add in slow burn and a little sports element, and it’s pretty much a perfect book for me.

Review | Prep and Prejudice by Miren B. Flores

“You’ve spent your whole damn life proving the wrong people right. When are you finally going to do it the other way around?” I guess by now, it’s obvious how much I love Pride and Prejudice. And to finally read a P&P-inspired novella written by a Filipino, woohoo! Hello, representation! […]

Review | A Place in the Sun by R.S. Grey

  A Place in the Sun found a place in my heart. Cheesiness aside, I made the right choice in reading this book as my first R.S. Grey book. This story had a sweet and sexy, friends-to-lovers romance set in the beautiful island of Vernazza, Italy with a brooding Italian hero […]

Giving this a 3.5-4 stars. As a YA reader/lover, I’m giving this a 4, but as a general contemporary romance, I’m giving it a 3.5. “This feels like a really bad movie,” I said. “One where you just know everything’s going to blow up in a huge mess at the […]

ARC Review | Unveiling Chaos (Unveiling #2) by Jeannine Allison

Unveiling Chaos is the second standalone in the Unveiling series told in alternating POVs. You don’t have to necessarily read the first to read this book, but it would be nice to read the first book since  most of the characters were introduced there. There is a subplot involving alcoholism […]
