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.
This was such an enjoyable book. For me, it had the perfect amount of humor, romance, and lightheartedness. The characters were so likable. I loved the relationship between Brooklyn and her sister Cammie. They’re not only sisters, but best friends as well, and the love, care and protectiveness that they have for each other is shown throughout the book.
Jason was harder to get to know. He comes across as a typical brooding musician at first, but we quickly see that he actually has a tender side and a good sense of humor.
When Brooklyn and Jason first meet and are told that they need to write and perform a duet together, neither of them is thrilled with the idea. When Brooklyn finds out that she will be spending the next several weeks at Jason’s ranch in Montana to work on the song, she is even less thrilled.
Jason and Brooklyn’s relationship develops slowly. Jason tells her that his life is complicated, and he can’t have anything serious. Brooklyn is okay with this at first, but once her heart becomes involved, she wants more. Then a secret from Jason’s past is revealed, and leaves Brooklyn heartbroken.
This was such a sweet story, and Jason’s secret, and his reasons behind it, actually made me like him even more. Highly recommend.
