Collaboration - Review

This is not your typical rock star romance. For one, the “rock star” is a rapper. And not just any rapper. Trace is the hottest ticket in the music industry right now, regardless of which definition of ‘hot’ you choose.

Taryn Starr is not the girl-next-door who unknowingly meets a celebrity. Known as “America’s Sweetheart,” the reigning country music princess and world-renowned superstar knows exactly who Trace is…or does she?

Their worlds collide when the musicians whose paths were never destined to cross are forced by their joint record label to collaborate on a song. The sparks fly and ignite a fire that blazes hotter with every minute they spend together—for better or worse. One thing’s for certain, the two media magnets can’t deny their explosive chemistry, but will life in the spotlight ultimately bring Trace and Taryn together or force them apart?

***This contemporary romance new adult novel is for mature audiences. The language alone would make a sailor blush (the guy’s a rapper, remember?) so 18+ only, please.

Michelle Lynn
Michelle moved around the Midwest most of her life, transferring from school to school before settling down in the outskirts of Chicago ten years ago, where she now resides with her husband and two kids. She developed a love of reading at a young age, which helped lay the foundation for her passion to write. With the encouragement of her family, she finally sat down and wrote one of the many stories that have been floating around in her head. When she isn’t reading or writing, she can be found playing with her kids, talking to her mom on the phone, or hanging out with her family and friends. But after chasing around twin preschoolers all day, she always cherishes her relaxation time after putting the kids to bed.
Nevaeh Lee
Nevaeh’s first exposure to writing began in a middle school creative writing class. She was reprimanded for composing a politically incorrect story and forced to re-write about a “safer” topic. Being the writing rebel that she is, Nevaeh always likes to push the envelope a bit and never re-writes, unless her editor insists on it.
When she’s not writing, Nevaeh is a freelance book editor ;).  And though she spends a good chunk of her time reading, writing, and editing, she can also be found hanging out with her family and taking road trips, exploring the area around wherever she happens to be living at the time. Even though “home” will always be Texas, she has lived in several different states and countries, but currently resides in the DC metro area.

My Review

 4.5 Music Award Winning Stars!

 Country Music sensation and Hot Rapper….. two opposites but the attraction in INTENSE!

 The story was phenomenal and I enjoyed it so much!!! I am so use to reading about the hot rock stars that it was nice to have a change of pace with a rapper and country singer. (Don’t get me wrong though I still love my rock stars) 

Taryn is going for the image of ‘America’s Sweetheart’ and is BIG right now in the industry. Trace is a man whore who has a different woman every night and is also big but is known for his rapping abilities. Totally different styles of music but signed on at the same label and are put together to collaborate on a single. Sparks fly from the very beginning of their meeting each other (although it wasn’t the best of circumstances considering he just beat her for an award). As they begin this journey of making the new single they get to know each other and the passion only grows.

 I enjoyed how it started out with only little texts to each other. Then eventually it developed into phone calls and soon they went out on a date. (In disguise of course!) I loved watching the development of their relationship. They had trials they had to go through and survive as a couple. Being in the spotlight already makes things difficult but they had other forces that were against them.

 This started with a slow build of passion until it caught fire and left you blazing! Amazing job and great read!!! Definitely a favorite so far of 2014!
