Welcome to STARSTRUCK, a showplace for talent, a playground for love.The hot nights amp up with Rossi’s novella JADED, part of a new contemporary continuity series by Beth Ciotta, Cynthia Valero, and Elle J Rossi. Three authors. One world.
MARRY ME, BROOKLYN.
Four years ago Brooklyn ran from that plea and straight toward what she dreamed would be a better future. An aspiring fashion designer destined for more than the boredom of small town life and the strain of a whiskey-saturated family, she launched herself toward the runways of New York.
Emmett couldn’t compete with the glitz of the big city, let alone erase Brooklyn's emotional scars. When she turned down his proposal and left him behind, he poured what was left of his heart into his music. He got through with three rules: Play the guitar. Play the field. Forget about Brooklyn.
Now Brooklyn is back and the past and present collide inside Starstruck when Brooklyn fills in as lead singer for Emmett’s band. Night after night of thumping bass and passionately sung lyrics reminds them of every delicious memory they ever shared. But a sizzling attraction can only go so far when emotions are raw and trust is fragile. Emmett still wants forever. Brooklyn is only good at temporary.
Can two hearts find a way to truly connect off the stage, or will they stay forever jaded?
I totally loved this book from beginning to end, you're rooting for this couple to get back together and have the HEA that they missed out on. Four years ago Emmett asked Brooklyn to marry him and she turned him down because she was tired of small town living and wanted to get away from her craptastic upbringing. Brooklyn returns after a phone call from her brother saying that she is needed. She knew returning that there was a chance that she would run into Emmett. The moment these two locked eyes on one another again the attraction was back and hotter than ever, and I just LOVE IT when that happens. I'm a huge fan of flirty second chance romance reads, and this one had me going. I felt the vulnerability and the strength from Brooklyn when she was experiencing a lot of turmoil in her life. I felt the warmth and the love from Emmett when he was around Brooklyn. The chemistry whenever these two were together had me quickly turning the pages. You get pulled in to these characters lives and you start to feel protective over them. With a well written plot and swoon-worthy characters that makes you hope that they get their own story (hint Jenna & Quinn). This book captivates you and makes you realize that you should relish in the good, and be the rock the other one needs when going through the bad.
