Spotlight: One Kiss With a Rock Star by Shari Slade and Amber Lin

Title: One Kiss with a Rock Star (Half-Life #2)

Authors: Amber Lin, Shari Slade

Date of Publication: November 6th 2014


Half-Life bassist Krist Mellas is caught in a PR nightmare after his dirty sex video blew up online. His agent has the solution: a fake engagement with sultry pop princess Madeline Fox. Krist can’t think of anything worse than a charade with the bubblegum bombshell…except losing the band.

Madeline knows better than anyone what it means to live a lie in the spotlight. She’s determined to help Krist without ever letting him find out what it costs her—or about her girlhood crush on him. But after a smoking hot back alley encounter with him leaves her breathless, she can’t deny she wants the snarling bad-boy rocker.

In a world of glitter and diamonds where the kisses are fake but the climaxes are real, their facades start to crack. And the publicity storm may shatter them both.

WARNING: This book contains a scorching threesome, a dirty talking pop princess, and a surly rocker who hits all the right notes.

Three Nights with a Rock Star (Half-Life #1)

When Hailey crashes a Half-Life after party, she expects to find the bastard who knocked up her little sister. Instead she meets the sexy front-man who agrees to give her access to his crew if she gives him access to her body.

All Lock demands in return is three days of complete control over the Sunday School teacher. With a contract, because he’s been burned before. One misstep could send the band—and his tenuous sobriety—up in flames.

Hailey and Lock push each other’s limits… Against the penthouse window. Backstage. In the limo and on the elevator. But as the contract counts down, neither are ready for the party to end.

What people are saying about Three Nights with a Rock Star

“This book will ROCK YOUR SOCKS RIGHT OFF!” – Red’s Hot Reads

“Three Nights with a Rock Star has the love story, the push you up against a door sex, and the holy hell I can’t believe they’re doing that ménage sex, but it also has the sweetness of family and the heartbreak of possible betrayals, broken friendships, and leaked sex tapes. I cannot wait to read Krist’s story, One Kiss with a Rock Star!” – Hines and Bingam’s Literary Tryst

“The chemistry between Lock and Hailey is blistering. Sparks flew the first time they saw each other. It was nice to see that both main characters had issues to work through to be able to maintain a relationship between them.” – Cocktails and Books

“Three Nights With A Rock Star was right up my ally, I loved every minute of it! From the sexy lead singer Lock, to the cute mousy Hailey. I’m more than looking forward to the next book One Kiss with a Rock Star.” – Books Unhinged

How do you decide who writes what?

Shari Slade: Co-writing with Amber is like call and response, or a really good game of ping pong. I have an idea and bounce it to Amber. She puts her spin on it and serves it back. Then Amber comes up with something and I whack it with my idea paddle. Fun. Bouncy. Whoa, where did that ball come from? Hey, watch out for my eye! Just kidding. It's a lot of really great back and forth. I don't know if I would say it's easier or harder writing with a partner—it has its own unique challenges—but it sure is a lot less lonely.

Amber Lin: Now I just want to play ping pong.

Do you get together to write or do you do it solely through the internet?

Shari Slade: Our process involves lots of instant messaging and emailing and wishing we lived close enough to write together in person more than a few times a year.

Amber Lin: I’m super excited that Shari is visiting me soon! But yes, we live far apart so our collaboration is online. We try to meet at writing conferences a couple times a year, but we don’t really write when we’re together. We just get into trouble ;-)

Shari Slade: We DO brainstorm at conferences and that totally counts as writing time.

What do you do to decompress when a scene is giving you trouble?

Shari Slade: When is a scene is giving me trouble I have a very professional way of handling it. First I have a temper tantrum. Then I break out the candy and booze. Filled with sugar and alcohol, the fuel of
both terrible and wonderful ideas, I scroll through tumblr for *cough* research. When all else fails, I cry in the shower.

About the Authors:

Amber Lin writes erotic romance with damaged souls and deep emotion.

Her debut novel, Giving It Up, received The Romance Review’s Top Pick, Night Owl Top Pick, and 5 Blue Ribbons from Romance Junkies. RT Book Reviews gave it 4.5 stars, calling it “truly extraordinary.” She has been published by Loose Id, Carina Press, and Entangled.

Amber married her high school sweetheart, birthed a kid who’s smarter than she is, and spends her nights writing down her dirty thoughts. In other words, life is good.

  Shari Slade is a snarky optimist. A would-be academic with big dreams and very little means. When she isn’t toiling away in the non-profit sector, she’s writing gritty stories about identity and people who make terrible choices in the name of love (or lust). Somehow, it all works out in the end. If she had a patronus it would be a platypus.
