🔥🔥 NEW RELEASE 🔥🔥

Falling North by Alyson Santos is LIVE and FREE with KU! Who says you can’t fly through the fall?

Alyson Santos has the way of writing about music that makes you feel the words you’re reading. No one writes rock star romance like she does. No one.” Author M.E. Carter

Turner Artist Management Urgent Action Item:

✔ Save Falling Back North from implosion.

When your agency’s newest artist shows signs of collapse, you jump on the problem. When it involves a potential rift between the brothers who form the band’s soul, you throw your Hail Mary.

So I did—by hiring a respected marketing goddess to save them. But when demons run deep and the stakes are extreme, it might prove too much for the band’s drummer and leader who’s been carrying them all since childhood. Enormous pressure compounded by impending heartbreak, what’s an agency to do?

See, I’m just the manager. The story that follows actually belongs to my client Xander Silva and the innocent marketing siren about to blow him to shreds.

Because now that both brothers have their hearts set on the same woman, everyone’s desperate to know:

Who is LYDIA CARMICHAEL??




Christie’s Review

5 STARS

Alyson Santos has done it again. Just when I think she can’t get any better, she proves me wrong! 

Falling North is about another client of Turner Artist Management. This band centers around two brothers, Xander and Matty. They are a unique sound, modern, alternative with a Latin twist. They are on the cusp of success but also on the cusp of imploding. The solution: hiring a marketing firm in the form of Lydia Carmichael to save them. Things get even more complicated as both brothers have feelings for the lovely Lydia. Yeah, things are about to get really interesting. 

Matty is the front man with loads of charisma, but the soul of the group is Xander. He not only carries the load of the band but also that of his brother. He has been Matty’s protector during their nightmare of a childhood. Xander has always put his little brother first and his scars are obvious, especially to Lydia.

Lydia has had issues with her parents but nothing close to what Xander and Matty have had to deal with. Her father is successful and powerful and has a business connection with the band. She doesn’t want to be given anything because of who her father is. She wants to earn everything on her own. She is fiercely independent and driven. Seeing her vulnerable side with Xander was beautiful. 

I could feel the pull between Xander and Lydia during their first meeting, even before they knew they would be involved in a professional sense. Lydia doesn’t want to wreck her career, and Xander knows Matty has feelings for Lydia. But we all know the old saying, “The heart what it wants.” 

It was breathtaking to see Lydia be that rock for Xander. I could almost visibly see him being able to take a breath and relax with her. He could be himself, not Matty’s protector, not the boy who wonders where his next meal was coming from, or if he would have a place to sleep that night. 

I cannot leave this review without mentioning the relationship between Xander and Matty. It was both endearing and heartbreaking. These two loved one another, but their relationship wasn’t equal. Xander was more a father than brother at times, and sometimes missed out on the joy of just being brothers. Matty adored his big brother, but he also yearned for Xander to let him just love him that way. Not only was this a love story between a man and woman but a love story between two brothers.

Santos creates one sexy yet sweet romance, but she adds so much more. Every synopsis of her books in this series just scratches the surface. She knows how to make me swoon, yet she tugs at my heartstrings as well. Her books are so much more than just rock stars and romance. Each word she writes is emotional, and she does a perfect job of combining both romance and emotion while shedding some light on serious issues!!!! I have only just discovered her, and I’m so glad I found out what a writing gem she is!!!!!

New Review: Rising West (The Turner Artist Rocker Series Book 1) by Alyson Santos with Excerpt

🔥🔥 NEW RELEASE 🔥🔥

Rising West by Alyson Santos is LIVE and FREE in KU!

Intensely beautiful, written poetically, and everything I want in a book. This book made my list.” – USA Today Best Selling Author T.L. Smith

Turner Artist Management Urgent Action Item:

Find a new frontman for Burn Card.

When one of your top artists loses their lead singer to a solo career, you jump on the problem. When it also involves a devastating breakup with the band’s queen bee, you drop everything and run.

So I did—run. To the east, where I found a young single father so mesmerizing, his talent almost makes you forget he comes at a price. Enormous potential steeped in personal tragedy, what’s an agency to do?

See, I’m just the manager. The story that follows actually belongs to my client Liberty Blake and the enigmatic heartthrob whose world is about to be blown apart.

Because now that the industry wolves have the scent, everyone’s desperate to know:

Who is MASON WEST??




Christie’s Review

5 Mesmerizing STARS

 

Wow!!! Alyson Santos blew me away with the story of Mason West!!!! He is a rockstar unlike any other!!!! He just made me swoon!!!! I was addicted from the very first pages!

I loved the synopsis, and I knew I had to read it! I love rockstar romances, but this one was quite different from others I have read in the past. Mason was on his way to fame and fortune when he lost it all, and he found himself as a single father, trying to make ends meet. Years later an opportunity of a lifetime comes his way, and it has the potential to change his life both professionally and personally. 

Liberty had her heart crushed when the frontman of their band and her boyfriend left her and the bandmates in the dust, and the band needed a new singer. Enter Mason West….her life nor Mason’s will never be the same. 

Alyson Santos’s writing is just magical, almost poetic. Her words just invoke all sorts of emotions. She truly captured who Mason was, and she made me fall so in love with him. How could I not love him? He wasn’t the normal arrogant rockstar who needs to be taken down a peg or two. In fact, he thought he didn’t deserve any good things in life, but oh my gosh, he deserved it all. He was loyal, loving, and adored his sweet, precious daughter, Brooklyn. She was his first love….ALWAYS!

And Liberty… she was a strong, independent woman, but she had a huge heart. I love that Alyson gave her that name. She epitomized the meaning…”freedom.” She was patient, kind, and loving with Mason, breaking down his walls and helping to free himself from the self-doubts he was plagued with. In addition, I adored the scenes with her and Brooklyn!!!!

I can’t leave this review without mentioning the inclusion of Brooklyn’s mom, Katrina. I thought it was a genius move on Alyson’s part to make her such a big part of the story. She was a character herself even though she was no longer on earth with Mason and Brooklyn. It made the story even sweeter! 

Liberty and Mason’s love story was beautiful and emotional, again, such much of that was because of Alyson’s writing! This is the first novel I have read by her, and she has made me a HUGE fan!!!!

Check out the original song “SAYS WHO” ➤ https://youtu.be/mhcc-fK5OCE

I can’t stop the grin that slides over my lips as I slap the pen back to the table in front of her. Protecting it with my hand, I lean forward with a severe expression. “If I give this back, can I trust you not to attack me with it again?”

Her lips twitch as she fights back a smile. Her eyes lock on mine. “No promises, West.”

“Then I’m not releasing it.”

She raises a brow in challenge and reaches for my hand. I bite my cheek to keep from laughing as she tries to lift my hand, first with one of hers, then with both. When she focuses her undivided attention on yanking my wrist, I can’t hold back anymore. Her death grip is adorable.

“This is a really important pen, huh,” I say casually as she strains with everything she has against my arm.

“The importantest,” she grunts, now jerking with her entire bodyweight. “How the hell are you so strong?”

“If it’s so important, maybe you should stop throwing it at people.”

“It wasn’t my fault.”

“No? How do you figure?”

“You made me do it.”

“Really.” I lean back in a nonchalant stance as she struggles against me, just to piss her off more.

“Yeah. If you weren’t being such a dick, I wouldn’t have had to throw it.”

I’m not sure about the effectiveness of whatever her current tactic is supposed to be, but it involves squatting her cute ass in my direction, so I’m all for it.

“How was I being a dick? Because I wanted you to sing?”

“Yes!”

“I see. So because I think you have a killer voice, you threw a pen at me.”

She freezes mid-lunge and stares up at me.

“You think I have a killer voice?”

“Duh.”

“But…” She straightens, closing the gap until she’s the one gazing down at me now. “I mean…” Her fingers remain on my wrist, and suddenly I feel the pressure of her touch everywhere else as well. Shit.

By the way her gaze drifts from my eyes to my lips, she senses it too. Her grip loosens on my wrist just enough to drag it up my arm where it rests on my bicep. I suck in a breath, praying my brain is strong enough to stop my ravenous muscles from doing something stupid.

“Mason…”

Her other hand reaches for my lips. Two steps closer and she’s almost flush between my legs. Holy hell, I’m suddenly the weakest man on the planet. My only defense is stasis. Don’t move, because once my body gets the signal to react…

Her hand cups my cheek; her eyes search deep. I grip the edge of the chair as my blood pumps with the fury of every pen that’s ever been thrown at a boy by a girl, and freaking hell I’m not strong enough to sit still—

“Um, Ms. Liberty, you’re a-pposed to use your words, not your hands.”

We stiffen and glance over to find Brooklyn studying our strange position with clear indignation. The spoon hangs from her mouth as she cocks a hand on her hip, her expression telling us she’s positive adults are super weird and quite possibly poorly-behaved as well.

I clear my throat and straighten in my chair, finally releasing the pen that started it all. Liberty is fighting to keep a straight face as she scoops it off the table and returns to her seat like nothing happened. Just two coworkers working. No big deal.

“She’s right. I’m sorry, Mason,” she says, her voice trembling from the effort of sincerity.

Brooklyn nods in approval before settling her stare on me. “Your turn, Daddy.”

I clear my throat, clench a fist to hold steady. “I’m sorry as well.”

“And?”

She darts her critical gaze between the two of us.

“And… what?” I ask. Wrong question, judging by the laser that shoots back at me.

“Annnnd… now you sing the friendship song!” She throws up her hands in disbelief at our stupidity. “You know… ‘you say sorry, I say sorry, friends we are again.’” She even directs our symphony with an impatient wave for each beat. It takes us three times through before she’s satisfied with our performance and returns to her show after another huff of frustration.

“Do you think ‘The Friendship Song’ is copyrighted?” Liberty asks, glancing up from her notebook.

I smirk and reposition the guitar in my lap. “I hope not. We could totally sample that for the bridge.”

Title: NEVER LOVE A ROCKSTAR
Author: Sarah Darlington
Release Date: February 5th

IN LOVE WITH A ROCKSTAR?
No, I wouldn’t wish that on anyone.

Rebecca Cooper knows what dating a rockstar is like. It’s late nights, months on the road, and constantly sharing your man with everyone else. It’s coming second. She’s been there, done that, and walked away with a broken heart. So how it is possible she’s put herself in this position again? In love with yet another rockstar. This time, his brother.

Luke Mills is bitter. He’s bogged down by years of guilt and heartache. He goes through the motions. He’s rough with everyone around him. And then Rebecca walks back into his life. Sweet Rebecca. She shouldn’t be here. She shouldn’t have come back. But Luke sees her and can’t help the way his heart wants to respond. But, no, not in a million years—he’d never let her have a spot in his frozen heart again. Not when she was always his brother’s girl.

Christie’s Review

5 STARS

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED, LOVED THIS BOOK!!!!! It had it all…love, chemistry, a swoony rockstar with a heart of gold and a sassy, independent loyal woman who loves him!!!!

All The Forbidden Things is the perfect title for this book because it’s all about forbidden things. Max is in the middle of a nasty separation and now a single father to precious Layla. Billie is returning home to her family after being subject to a vicious attack. The two have known each other for years since Max is her older brother’s best friend. Neither expected the fireworks of seeing each other after all these years, especially Max. He knows he needs to stay very far away from her, but how long can he ignore the pull he feels towards her. 

I not only fell in love with Max but with Billie too! She is an amazing woman despite her mere age of 22. She has witnessed things in her life that not many people do, not only did she survive, but she fought to live a somewhat normal life. I loved her connection not only with Max but with Layla too! She is an old soul who loves deeply!

Billie has known Max all her life, and she has always had a crush on him. 

“He’s known me all of my life, but he doesn’t really know me at all, and yet I still feel entirely at ease and comfortable in his presence.”

Their connection is full of chemistry but also very deep and romantic. 

Max has lived that “rockstar” life, but now he has to think of Layla. He thought he was in love with his ex, but she shattered his idea of what love was supposed to look like. When Billie enters his life again, he is unprepared for the strong feelings she brings brings out, especially when he sees Layla in her arms. He wants it all with her. They definitely have an uphill battle to achieve the dream of being together. He is older than her. She is his best friend’s sister, and he is fighting to be free from his awful ex. 

 I love a flawed hero, and Max is exactly that. He isn’t perfect, but he is perfect for Billie. He loves his daughter, and who can resist a man like that. I know I can’t.

This is my first read by Lesley Jones, but it definitely won’t be my last. I’m so excited when I find a new writer, and I’m so glad I found Lesley Jones.

EXCERPT

It’s at that point I notice Billie climbing from the car. Although, if Mel hadn’t told me, I’d never have recognised the girl standing on my drive as Billie Wild.

She closes the car door and turns towards me.

Silence.

She stares down at her feet as she moves slowly along my driveway. When she reaches the front of the car, she looks up. The bluest of blue eyes meet mine, and she stops moving.

Deafening silence.

No birds singing.

No traffic sounds.

The silence is so loud it hurts my ears.

What. The. Actual. Fuck?

She takes a step towards me, and my hearing returns. The gravel crunches beneath her green biker boots, a pigeon coos, brakes screech, engines rev . . . a bomb could fucking drop, but nothing, not a single thing can divert my attention from Billie Wild as she moves towards me.

 

 

 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Lesley was born and raised in a small working-class town in Essex, just outside of East London. She’s married with three sons and in 2006 they all moved to the other side of the world, settling on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula, about fifty kilometres outside of Melbourne, Australia.

Lesley is currently ‘a stay at home mum’, but in the past, she has worked at ‘good old Mark & Spencer’ for thirteen years and as a teacher’s assistant.As well as writing, Lesley loves to read and has been known to get through four or five books a week, when she’s not writing that is.

Her other interests are watching her boys play football… the round ball version. She’s happy to admit to being an addict of social media and owes a lot to her Facebook and Twitter family in promoting her book. Lesley is also rather partial to a glass or bottle of wine, a nicely chilled Marlborough Sav Blanc being her favourite.

Being a born and raised Essex girl, she will happily admit being a big fan of spray tans, manis, pedis, and is regularly, waxed, tinted and sculpted, although she doesn’t own a pair of white stilettos.

Babe Driven

by Lizzie Chantree

 

Synopsis

Could you ignore the world’s hottest rock stars, if they moved into the villa next door? 

True love, humour and happy-ever-after. A sizzling romance read full of giggles, sunshine and searching for a soul mate in paradise by bestselling author Lizzie Chantree.

Brand new 2019 version!

Driving straight out of trouble and into paradise! A laugh out loud, contemporary romance read full of entrepreneurial women, powerful men and exotic locations.

Harriet’s crazily successful business idea is under serious threat, and the danger seems to be coming from inside her own family. She whisks her sister and her friends away to an exotic location to try and work out whose side they are on. It’s time to start damage limitation.

When the girls arrive at the glorious villa owned by Harriet’s maverick business partner Nikki, they find a gorgeous band and their sexy lead singer Max staying next door, out to entice their new neighbours into all kinds of trouble.

This isn’t a holiday for Harriet and she can’t afford to be distracted. She has to sell her business idea to the powerful resort owner, the elusive Mr Grant, while she is there, or she may not have a business to go back to. Harriet will have to choose between family and friends, business or pleasure. For someone who stays out of the limelight, even though her new company is the hottest ticket in town, she’s going to have to avoid the front pages of every newspaper if she wants to survive the ride!




Christie’s Review

4 STARS

Babe Driven was a fun, enjoyable read!

When I first saw the synopsis, I was excited to read this because I’m a huge fan of rock star romances. However, the synopsis only scratches the surface. The romance is only half of the story. 

The story is told from several POVs, but the main character is Harriet. She has a pretty successful business, but to keep it that way, she has come to a beautiful place to get “Mr. Grant” to invest in her idea. While there, she is also trying to repair her relationship with her half-sister. What she doesn’t expect is to fall in love with rock star, Max!

To say Harriet has a full plate would be an understatement. So many people, especially men, completely underestimate Harriet. When they figure out the powerful woman she is, it’s too late for them! I LOVED that!!!! She isn’t a woman to mess around with!

As I said, her relationship with Max is only a portion of the story. He appears to be the calmer, more stable part of her life. He isn’t your typical, bad boy rocker. He really cares about Harry, and he isn’t shy about letting her know that. 

I was just amazed at Harry’s character. In the beginning, I was just like all the others. I saw her as this woman with not much self-confidence who may let people take advantage of her. So, imagine my shock when that perception was blown out of the water. I liked her in the beginning, but I LOVED her in the end.

About ABANDON:

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken comes a new story in her Seaside Pictures series…

It’s not every day you’re slapped on stage by two different women you’ve been dating for the last year.

I know what you’re thinking. What sort of ballsy woman gets on stage and slaps a rockstar? Does nobody have self-control anymore? It may have been the talk of the Grammy’s.

Oh, yeah, forgot to mention that. I, Ty Cuban, was taken down by two psychotic women in front of the entire world. Lucky for us the audience thought it was part of the breakup song my band and I had just finished performing. I was thirty-three, hardly ready to settle down.

Except now it’s getting forced on me. Seaside, Oregon. My band mates were more than happy to settle down, dig their roots into the sand, and start popping out kids. Meanwhile I was still enjoying life.

Until now. Until my forced hiatus teaching freaking guitar lessons at the local studio for the next two months. Part of my punishment, do something for the community while I think deep thoughts about all my life choices.

Sixty days of hell.

It doesn’t help that the other volunteer is a past flame that literally looks at me as if I’ve sold my soul to the devil. She has the voice of an angel and looks to kill—I would know, because she looks ready to kill me every second of every day. I broke her heart when we were on tour together a decade ago.

I’m ready to put the past behind us. She’s ready to run me over with her car then stand on top of it and strum her guitar with glee.

Sixty days. I can do anything for sixty days. Including making the sexy Von Abigail fall for me all over again. This time for good.

Damn, maybe there’s something in the water.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Excerpt:

“You ready?” I gripped my drumsticks tightly in my right hand as the screaming from the crowd pierced my ears, causing an onslaught of adrenaline to pulse beneath my skin.

Drew, one of the leading frontmen for our band, Adrenaline, rolled his eyes and shot me a middle finger. Then he straight-up tugged his leather pants down below his hips to show off his legendary V.

We get it, bro, you’ve got an eight-pack where there’s usually only six.

With a flourish, I pulled off my simple white tee and shrugged. “What? Two can play that game.”

“Seriously, guys?” Will gave me a shove. “They already gave us shit last time about you two comparing dicks. It’s the Grammys, not the Super Bowl. We have to be clothed.”

I eyed him up and down. “Question. Was it your plan to go out there looking like the dad of the group, or was it just a happy accident?” He was in skinny jeans and a simple vintage tee and wore his typical thick black glasses that somehow still got him action from his wife, actress Angelica Greene. It was confusing when Will got action and I didn’t.

Not that I wasn’t getting any.

I inwardly smirked. I was dating one of our background dancers, while at the same time hooking up with one of Zane’s—both of which were performing with us tonight. Hey, it wasn’t like I planned for them to ever meet! And before you get your panties in a twist and start calling me a whore while chanting things like “I pray your dick falls off,” let me explain.

I have a solid reason for dating both women.

You ready for it?

The truth bomb of the century?

I don’t actually have a heart. You see, a long time ago in a land where my innocence thrived—you know, before the mistakes with the drugs, alcohol, and the time I carried a live chicken on stage and kissed it—I was in love.

Real love.

Not the kind where you say it just because you want to have sex with someone so badly, you’re willing to sell your soul to the devil. Twice.

Real, honest to God love.

Her name? Abigail.

Her current status? Breaker of souls and spawn of Satan.
