He never noticed her before, but now she’s all he can see…

Miles Carlisle is every teen girl’s fantasy. His rugged good looks and exotic British accent have helped catapult his boy band, Seconds to Juliet, to super-stardom. But after two disastrous and very public breakups, Miles isn’t interested in dating just any girl; he wants The One. And the only girl he’s interested in is not only his best friend’s little sister–and off-limits–but won’t even give him the time of day…

As a kid, Aimee Bingham had a huge thing for Miles…until he made fun of her for always tagging along. Now that she’s outgrown both him and her pigtails, the prospect of spending two weeks on tour with the childhood crush who broke her heart isn’t exactly enticing. Except now Miles seems interested. Very interested. And no matter how hard Aimee tries to resist him, her crush is definitely making a comeback.

But everyone knows that falling for a heartthrob is a backstage pass to heartbreak…

This Entangled Teen Crush book contains references to drug use, drinking, some sexual content, and lots and lots of kissing. Its swoonworthy hero may ruin all others for you.

Need I say more? 🙂

Backstage Pass #4 releases today!

4 down, 1 to go! But you guys are gonna LOVE #4


It’s always the quiet ones…

Anya Anderson doesn’t just need a big break, she needs any break. Living on the streets doesn’t leave a girl many options, so when she scores a gig reporting on the Seconds to Juliet tour, she jumps at the chance to earn enough money to sleep somewhere safe. And the paycheck will get bigger – and keep her off the streets for good – if she can dig up dirt on Will Fray, the irritatingly hot “shy guy” of the band.

Problem is, Will Fray isn’t who everyone thinks he is. In fact, he’s not Will at all. Matt, Will’s identical twin, is actually the guy onstage, reluctantly covering for his brother while he’s in rehab. To make matters worse, Matt’s being shadowed by a cute reporter with troubled eyes determined to get the scoop. On him. And he’s having trouble finding the willpower to keep his distance…

But if the secret gets out, it won’t just be his head on a platter – it’ll be the whole band’s.

This Entangled Teen Crush book contains steamy make out scenes, graphic language, and a love story so hot your copy may spontaneously burst into flames. You’ve been warned.

Daisy & the Front Man

<trumpet blare>

At long last, Daisy & the Front Man, book #3 in the Backstage Pass series is out! This book features Trevin, Miles’s best boy band buddy (from book #1 (my book!) Aimee & the Heartthrob), and Daisy, the girl he done wrong.

Don’t you just LOVE a good revenge story?

DaisyAndTheFrontMan_FINAL COVER

Hell hath no fury like a fangirl scorned…

When Daisy Morris finds out she’s spending the summer with her dad, bodyguard for Seconds to Juliet—the hottest boy band around—she knows it couldn’t be more perfect. But not because she’s a fan. Oh, no. Because ever since front man Trevin Jacobs completely humiliated her by standing her up for homecoming, Daisy is out for a little revenge. Yup, Trevin Jacobs is goin’ down…

When one of his bandmates bets Trevin he can’t make Daisy—the gorgeous but surprisingly ice-cold daughter of their bodyguard—fall in love with him, it’s a bet he can’t resist. Sure, Daisy won’t give him the time of day for reasons he can’t understand, and her dad’s hell-bent against his little girl spending time with a superstar. But the terms are set, and Trevin is determined to make Daisy fall…hard.

But every front man should know never to trust a girl with a pretty face…

This Entangled Teen Crush book contains adult language, sexual situations, and seriously hot boys. It may cause swoony daydreams involving a certain super-cute front man.

Need it now? Sure ya do! Chick HERE!

And don’t forget to check out the whole series HERE.


Blog Post 4 for Daisy and the Front Man: EXCERPT

“Come with me for a minute—I have something I want you to hear.” Trevin ushered her to the deck that wrapped around the back of the house. “Have a seat.” He pointed to a lounge chair.

“What’s going on?”

“Just give me a sec, okay?” He took his acoustic guitar from its case, which was leaned against one of the built-in wooden benches, and tuned it. When he finished, he cleared his throat. “I’ve been kind of playing around with your grandpa’s song.”


“Yeah, it’s got this really great melody. And the lyrics are beautiful. I don’t know how someone hasn’t tried to

remake it yet.” Trevin strummed the chords then started to sing. He watched Daisy’s eyes light up and his chest warmed. At first, he thought this might be a great gesture to win her over for the bet, but seeing how it was affecting her now, he realized he was doing it for her. Not just to beat Ryder. “Haven’t you heard, I’m stuck on you, my heart beats only for you…”  When he finished, she just stared at him. Like she didn’t recognize him.

“I-I didn’t realize how well you played.”

“Did you like it?” He set his guitar back in its case.

She nodded, her eyes welling.

He moved closer to her. “I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to make you cry.”

“No, it’s not you. I just miss him, you know.”

Trevin touched her cheek, wiping away the stray tears that trickled down. His finger pushed strands of hair from her face as he pulled her against his chest. Her body trembled against his as she cried, and all he could do was hold her. “Shh…it’s okay,” he whispered softly.

She clung tighter to him, and he let her. She felt good in his arms. Soft. Warm. Perfect. His palms stroked her back, her bare leg pressed against his. His lips brushed against the top of her head, so lightly, he didn’t think she felt it. But she tilted her large brown eyes up, until they met his. And in that moment, he saw a lot more than he wanted to. Her pain. Her hope. Her trust. And it nearly destroyed him.

Book #2 from the Backstage Pass Series RELEASES TODAY

Guys! MIA & THE BAD BOY, by Lisa Burstein, is fiiiiiiinally here!

Are These The 43 Funniest GIFs Of All Time?

If you like your boy band boys on the smexy bad side, this is the book for you!


Here’s the blurb:

This good girl’s about to meet her match…

Ryder Brooks is living the dream—he’s famous, loved by millions of girls, and miserable. All he really wants is to write his own music, not Seconds to Juliet’s sugary sweet pop. In order to do that, though, the “bad boy” of the band will have to play by the rules. And that includes behaving with his new—and super cute—über-good-girl tutor.

Mia Reyes is in fangirl heaven. Tutoring her favorite member of her favorite band? It’s a dream come true…until it turns into a complete nightmare. Ryder is nothing like she thought. He’s crude, arrogant, and pretty much a total jerk. And the worst part? She’s roped into pretending to be his girlfriend so that no one finds out he’s being tutored. Fake kisses, plenty of PDA, and even sharing his hotel room…

But sometimes even the baddest of bad boys needs a little redemption.


Pick it up for $2.99!


My very truncated history with boy bands…

1) When I first saw “I’ll be Loving You Forever” on MTV (yes, MTV used to show videos)

(Jordan wore a Batman t-shirt, and I had insta-love.)

2) When NKOTB broke our hearts by going all Boston gangsta street.

3) When we all realized that was fricking Donnie in “The Sixth Sense.”

4) When the grunge of the ’90’s had gone on for too long, and then Backstreet Boys burst out in all their sunny, poppy glory.

5) When Nick’s dreamy blue eyes (much like Miles Carlisle’s) and mine met through the TV screen, and I just knew.

6) When I went to the Millennium tour and sat 15 rows back, and Nick flew right over my section. I swear, our eyes met again, and he was totally singing just to me!

7) When I went to the Black & Blue tour and heard “Not For Me” live, and it was super hot and awesome and Nick.

8) When Nsync broke up.

9) When BSB hit those dark days: AJ went to rehab, Nick got soft and doughy, Howie’s hair got all long and weird, Brian went solo, and Kevin left the band.

10) When my sister visited London and brought back McFly’s debut cd, and daaaaamn, so much British boy band love happened.

11) When NKOTBSB became a thing (who know this could be a thiiiiing!)

12) When–because of Aimee and the Heartthrob–I was “forced” to research current boy bands (hello, I feel old), and I fell flat on my booty for 1D, along with the rest of the world.

14) Last but not least, Nick’s smile…
