Title: The Duet
Author: R.S. Grey
Release Date: Nov 8, 2014
Find on

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.

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.


I haven’t met a book by R.S. Grey that I didn’t like… and I still haven’t!
Great story, wonderful characters. Two completely opposite styles of music and their record label tells them to collaborate for a Grammy performance. What could possibly go awry? Nothing you say? You’d be wrong!
I love the funny lines in this. Loved them so much, I had to read out multiple sentences and even whole paragraphs to the hubs, and this is a man who rolls his eyes at me for reading out funny bits from books, giving me a distinct look of “Why me? Why did I get stuck with a book nerd?”  And, you want to know something? He laughed at every single one I read out. Amazeballs!! Oh, wait, all except one, but then I think he was too busy perving on the chick in ‘Cowboys and Aliens’ to pay attention to me. *shrug* There’s always the next line!
If something can make my not-a-book-fan partner  laugh, then it’s a hit as far as I’m concerned.  In addition to the funny parts though, are solid characters, a great storyline and a feeling of contentment when Brooklyn gets to Jason’s ranch in Montana. (I know, I know, it’s a book, but it just makes me want to jump on a plane and fly for 20 hours to get there)
The only thing that stopped me from finishing this in an all-nighter read, was the fact the battery on my tablet went flat (there’s something special about a paperback, isn’t there?!). This is definitely one I could’ve stayed up all night reading, simply for the enjoyment and the laughs. It was a “what’s she going to think or say next?” type page turner for me.

Now that I’ve finished my babbling, it’s time to scroll back up to the BUY NOW link, and click that sucker. I dare you!
