The Duet by R.S. Grey
Publisher: Self published
Publication Date: October 2014
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 story revolves around sweet and sassy pop star Brooklyn Heart, who is being forced by her record label to write and perform a duet with the enigmatic Jason Monroe for the Grammy’s. Jason is a famous, country singer, who is not on board this collaboration. In a bid to make Jason see that she’s not as bad as her first impression made her seem, she agrees to spend a few weeks with him on his ranch in Montana. Despite Brooklyn’s efforts, Jason is still as rude as ever.
Their time together is charged with tensions (of all kinds) a few preconceptions, and some misunderstandings. They tease each other non stop, and eventually come to a sort of understanding (one that includes getting naked). 😉
Later on, we find out that there is more to Jason than meets the eye and he is obviously not going to tell what. Secrets soon become revealed, and Brook’s already fragile heart is broken.
Stories like The Duet make me happy, and that’s the truth. It’s filled with wit and humour; is fast paced and romantic. R.S. Grey portrays the “opposite attract” factor so well, without making the story seem unrealistic. I love the way the story ended, I love the characters, and I love that there is a second book in this series!
