Synopsis courtesy of Goodreads:
All publicity is good publicity, right? Unless you’re recent college grad Ellie Wagner and an embarrassing video of you and your boyfriend goes viral. Every man in your life abandons you, but who knew a one-minute clip of your latest doomed relationship would brand you a slut, prevent you from getting your perfect job, and force you to keep doing the one thing you swore you’d never do again…live with your mother. But staying with mom and her latest boy-toy (is this husband number four or five?) until your life turns around might not be all bad. Especially when you fall – literally – at the feet of a sexy, green-eyed stranger who offers you freedom and a life of luxury on a gold-rimmed platter. There’s only one little problem – the man of your dreams is none other than Mason Nash, the latest hip-hop star busting up the music charts. Fame and fortune are his calling cards and he’s vying to steal the show on a new reality TV series that will catapult him into mainstream stardom. Hello spotlight. The man behind the famous persona is perfect for Ellie in every way, but can she overcome the ugly pitfalls that come with Mason’s celebrity status? Or will she be forced to choose between the man she loves and the independent life she longs for? After all, fame and fortune aren’t always what they seem and not all publicity is good publicity…
I have a soft spot for romance novels with happily ever afters and a HOT spot for alpha males! I currently live outside Toronto, Canada with my hubby, two small children and cat spawned by the devil. Life is busy, but never to busy for a good story and to share my love of reading and writing with others. Things I can tell you that sum me up...I'm a sugar and carb addict, self-professed Gandy Girl, a disaster in the kitchen, a LOVER of all music, I enjoy reality TV and I'm an early riser! When I have a moment to breath you can usually find me typing furiously on the keyboard to get my next story on paper, or curled up reading about someone else's HEA. The second book in my Limelight series, Picture Perfect, is set to release at the end of March 2014.
TED – Most people have probably heard of the TED talks. They bring in experts in their field and have them speak for twenty minutes on a topic. Topics range from advances in science, to David Blaine discussing how he held his breath for seventeen minutes, to achieving world peace. Whatever the topic I can almost guarantee you’ll be interested in it for the twenty minutes because the person talking not only knows their stuff but is passionate about their topic. I’ve thought of a lot of things differently after watching some of the lectures. Worth checking out!
Big Think – This channel gathers the world’s visionaries and they discuss different topics that will help you succeed in life. The videos are just short snippets of longer conversations with well-known people…usually two or three minutes at the most. They are great for really for quick pick-me-ups!
Self-Publishing Podcast – If you are an indie writer you should really check this one out. These three guys are not only hilarious but have a wealth of great advice to offer. Sometimes they’ll have guests on their show and pick their brains but I always get something useful from each episode I watch. Side note though, it’s not a PG13 show.
Jimmy Kimmel – If I could stay up later I’d just watch the show but I’m not a night owl so I just watch snippets of my favorite features from the show. He always does some hilarious stuff on there and there’s a lot of self-deprecating skits where the celebrities make fun of themselves like Celebrities Read Mean Tweets, Three Ridiculous Questions With…, and music videos like I F&*%ed Matt Damon!
