(Bad Habit #1)
Publication date:
July 14th 2015

Synopsis:
Twentysomething Kat Reid is loving life as an in-demand Hollywood makeup
artist. She has absolutely no interest in rock ’n’ roll, but in order to pay the
mortgage, she agrees to work on the set of a rock video for the world-famous
rockers known as Bad Habit…which brings her face-to-face with Nico Nyx, lead
singer of Bad Habit and Adonis in the flesh.
However, the fiercely independent Kat isn’t impressed by the hard-living,
womanizing rock star. But when Nico’s model girlfriend shows up to the set drunk
and Kat is tapped to replace her as the video’s sexy bride, her combustible
chemistry with Nico suddenly threatens to consume the set. Nico feels it,
too—and becomes determined to win Kat over, body and soul. Yet behind his rock
god swagger, Nico hides a dark secret. Can he rock Kat’s world forever, or will
he just break her heart?

Excerpt

I tried to pull away, but he
pinned me to his side. “Nico,” I protested.
He shook his head, all hard eyes
and hard jaw and hotness. “Not lettin’ you run away just ’cause you’re scared,
darlin’. Not how it works when you’re with me.”
“I’m not with you!” It came out as a hiss. If it wouldn’t have ended up
splashed across all the tabloids, I would have slapped him across the face, he
was so infuriating.
“Not yet.” His voice was dark
with promise. He sounded utterly certain, like it was a foregone conclusion
that I would be his.
I would not
be a foregone conclusion.
“Please help me up.”
My tone was cold. Judging by the look on
his face, Nico didn’t like it.
“Kat—”
“Nico, no. Just no. Please stop it. I’m not
a toy. You need to respect what I’m telling you. I’m flattered, but I’m not
interested in anything except getting through today, and getting back to real
life. Okay?”
He paused, gauging my tone. “Okay.”
Relief swept through me. Disappointment,
too, but I ignored that. I shouldn’t have been too relieved, however, because
Nico wasn’t done with me yet.
“I’ll let you up on one condition: prove
you’re not attracted to me.”
I glared at him. “Would you prefer me to
stab you with one of my heels, or gouge your eyes out with my fingernails?”
“Nah. A kiss will do the job.”
Was I on drugs? Had I even gotten out of
bed this morning? Maybe this was all an elaborate dream, and right now I was
snug in bed with the covers pulled over my head. I stared at Nico, at a loss
for what to do.
My body had a few ideas, but my brain
wasn’t on board with any of them.
“I don’t kiss strange men.”
“I’m not a stranger. We’ve been
introduced.” His fingers curled over the curve of my hip. His head dipped
toward mine.
Breathing was becoming difficult. My face
felt so hot it burned. “I don’t kiss men with girlfriends.”
“We already covered that. She’s not my
girlfriend. Next excuse?”
My hands were flattened against his bare
chest as I tried to push him away. My voice came out small. “I don’t want to.”
Nico shook his head, his eyes hot. “Such a
fuckin’ liar,” he whispered.
Before I could react, he lowered his mouth
to mine.

What Makes Rock Stars So Sexy?


If you’re like
me, you find rock stars irresistible. There’s just something fantastic about a
man who can make tattoos and a pair of tight leather pants into an entire
outfit. Here are my top five reasons I find rock stars so sexy, in no
particular order.
1.     
The Strut
Lord save me
from men who know how to swagger. That cocky, you-know-you-want-me walk tells
the ladies that not only does he think he’s the best, he’s got the goods to
back it up. He oozes self-confidence, and you can’t wait to watch him go to
work. On you.
2.     
The Talent
There’s magic in
his voice, his eyes, his fingers…and I’m not just talking about between the
sheets! Rock gods must have talent galore to rise to the top of their
profession. He’s not just another pretty face, he’s a gifted musician and
songwriter, and all that talent is a massive turn-on.
3.     
The Lifestyle
Admit it; his
glamorous lifestyle is a major plus. The parties, the private jets, the fifty-city
world tour…what girl wouldn’t want to hop along for the ride of her life? But
beware if you’re the jealous type; women literally throw themselves at his
feet. You’ll be stepping over swooning groupies everywhere the two of you go.
4.     
The Power
He’s got pull,
and it shows in a million ways, both big and small. Whether it’s a private
audience with the President or a private night at Disneyland (because he bought
out the whole park for your first date), a rock star can get anything he wants.
This Prince Charming really can make
all your dreams come true.
5.     
The Fantasy
He’ll whisk you
off to exotic island locations on a moments’ notice. He’ll shower you in
expensive gifts. He’ll write a song just for you…or maybe an entire album. Every
day with your rock god will be more interesting than any other day you’ve ever
had. And if you’re really lucky, he’ll pop the question and give you that
happily-ever-after you deserve.
