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.

The Duet will be priced at $2.99 for two days post-release, then the price will bump to $3.99!

Review By Heather 

Brooklyn Hart is a pop sensation.  Down to earth, close with her sister and funny as hell.  Jason Monroe is a broody singer/songwriter sexy as hell but keeps to his ranch rather than hang out in flashy LA.
What happens when the record label are both signed to forces them to collaborate on a duet for the Grammy Awards? A whole lot of hot!!!
Jason doesn’t want to to do this with Brooklyn. At first, he didn’t even think she wrote her own her owns songs. He wanted to just write it and have her sing it with him but Brooklyn wasn’t having it. Jason arranges for her to come and stay on his ranch and they two become close but Jason is keeping a huge secret.
When the attraction between the two is too much to ignore they start to have a sexual relationship but how long can that last before feelings start to surface? Will the secret Jason is keeping tear them apart?
I seriously LOVE this book….HARD! Rachel did an amazing job (as always) at keeping me interested from page one and developing her characters. I really felt like Brooklyn and even her sister would be people that I could be friends with in real life. I loved Jason so freaking much! I cannot pinpoint exactly one thing because he had the entire package- the looks, the humor and the mystery.
The Duet is a light read with not very many plot twists but definitely gives you the warm and fuzzies. The way Jason finally reveals his true feelings for Brooklyn is epic. I have read quite a few books with this trope and this is definitely in my top five.

I give this 5 singing to the heart stars!



Review By Rose 

WOW I haven't laughed so much while reading a book. What an awesome read, RS did such a great job with the one liners. I loved how different it was...Hey let's have sex to get in the mood to write a song!! lol 
The banter between Jason and Brooklyn is hilarious and keeps you entertained. Two musicians paired together by their record company neither one wants to do The Duet. We get to read how they come up with a song and ways for them to write the song. 
I personally would have liked to get to know the characters a little more, it was touched on but not in depth, in saying that it is a light hearted, funny read. I truly enjoyed. 

4.5 Stars 


Review By Tracy 


This book is a must read! When the record company put Brooklyn and Jason together for this duet I was able to predict what the outcome was going to be. I however did not predict how funny Brooklyn was going to be. I found myself laughing in many parts of this story. I am not talking a small chuckle, I am talking laughing so hard I was crying. R.S. Grey did a great job making Brooklyn so relatable . 

So why 4 stars? The story was predictable but hilarious. Great for a funny romantic read. Can't wait to read the next one in the series!

The M Lounge was the hippest and most discreet club in LA. If there was any hope of me locking down a one-night stand, M Lounge was the place to go.
“I can’t drink much tonight because I have that meeting with my record label in the morning,” I warned as we passed through the back entrance to the club and headed up a set of stairs that were used exclusively for the VIP level. Fun fact: one time I was going up those stairs when P. Diddy was coming down, and he totally touched my ass. Allegedly.
“Just to clarify: if you’re begging me for tequila shots at midnight, threatening to kill my first born if I don’t give them to you, I should still tell you no?” Cammie asked, just to ensure the boundaries were set. Better safe than sorry.
“That was one time and it was in Cabo,” I protested. “What else are you supposed to do in Cabo other than challenge a mariachi band to a tequila shot contest until the lead singer passes out beside a donkey?”
Cammie held up her hands and started listing off items. “I dunno— enjoy the beach, check out the museums and the culture—”
“That was a rhetorical question,” I interrupted as we made it to the top of the stairs.
As if by magic, the black curtain in front of us swept to the side, opening up an entire room of drunken debauchery before us. In one corner, a celebrity who shall remain nameless (we’ll call her Nennifer Janiston) was sucking face with a sexy man, and across the room two of the funniest women in comedy were doing body shots off of a waiter from the club.
“Welcome to the behind the scenes of Hollywood,” I whispered to Cammie.

I am a lover of books, chocolate, reality TV, black labs, and cold weather. Seriously, if I had it my way, I would be curled up on the couch with all of those things... everyday.
I live in Texas where I spend my free time writing and reading. My favorite authors include Mindy Kaling & Jonathan Safran Foer. I'm a comedy geek and love all things "funny". Women like Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Mindy Kaling are definitely the biggest inspirations for my writing, though I think my work tends to skew a bit smuttier than theirs.
