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.
A fun & sexy Romantic Comedy.
A lighthearted, sexy read that’ll have you laughing from the gut, and melting at the heart. R. S. Grey delivers a truly entertaining read that romantics will fall in love with and read over and over again.
I can’t tell you the last time a book made me laugh so hard I teared up. Lately I’ve been reading a string of emotional love stories, and this book was a refreshing break that I didn’t realize I needed. The Duet is a rom-com that hit all the right spots, and it left me feeling so light and rejuvenated.
This story is about two musical superstars who are forced by their record label to perform together. Brooklyn Heart is a sparkly pop star and Jason Munroe is a deep, singer/songwriter. She embraces the limelight and he avoids it. She’s stilettos and he’s stetsons. They’re both talented, they’re both hot, and when the two of them are together, the sparks shoot off the page. I’ve never read this author before, but I just loved how she told this story. Her writing is very engaging, easy, free, and most importantly entertaining. I think I laughed from the very first paragraph, and stayed completely in love with the story all the way through.
This story was humorous, but I still think that it had depth. The push and pull between Brooklyn and Jason was pretty intoxicating – it’s the kind that had me dying for them to hook up, but still loving the tease of the slow burn. If you love enemies-to-lovers stories, you’ll love this one. Watching these two peel back their layers with music and lyrics was so much fun. Not only that, this story had great secondary characters who I definitely want to know more about.
With The Duet R.S. Grey soothed and relieved my fried nerves leftover from some dark and angsty reads. Put this one on your shelf labeled ‘make me happy’ and read it when you want something refreshing to take you out of a funk; it’s that type of book.
The Duet is a sweet, sweet standalone.
