    4 Stars! “...can’t you see, you’ve brought me to my knees..." The Duet is book one in R.S. Grey’s new series entitled Heart. This romantic comedy has a sassy pop singer pairing with a broody lone wolf solo artist to compose and write a duet for a Grammy performance. Two very different personalities and musical styles that will leave you wondering if it really is a good idea to pair polar opposites. “Brooklyn Heart, you are one sexy m...

    Now live on Amazon!4 stars!Though I don’t read many of them, sometimes it’s great to unwind with a lighthearted, humorous read and when I picked up The Duet it hit the nail on the head with light and funny. Though the premise isn’t anything I haven’t read before, the witty banter, nearly drama-free plot, the close camaraderie between the two Heart sisters and the two very charming main characters totally won me over and I had a blast read...

    4 Stars!RS Grey and I...we just get along! I've read and enjoyed all of her books and The Duet was no exception.I love that all of her books are completely different from each other. I love that not every book turns in to a multi book series. They don't have cliffhanger endings. They aren't filled with juvenile drama and annoying MCs. And best of all, they make me laugh.Brooklyn was a great heroine....maybe a little in her head too much. Despite ...

    4.5 "Sing to me" starsAfter reading The Duet,I was led to a huge,life-changing revelation.One that was formed in the back of my mind since V is for Virgin,one that started putting down roots after Like Gravity,and now will be my downfall:I want to marry a singer.A cocky,sexy as hell singer who writes songs about me because is there anything hotter than this?Thank you R.S. Grey for narrowing down my chances of finding a real life book boyfriend fr...

    4 Stars.Brooklyn and Jason are both very famous a successful country singers, both nominated to the Emmy’s. But as they attracted different groups of fans, their agents have a brilliant idea: bring them together to perform a duet during the Emmy’s that join their public.Jason immediately rejects that idea and is pretty vocal about it and Brooklyn doesn’t understand why she attracts such a cold front from him. Since they have no other choice...

    3 stars! Review at Of Pens and Pages.Brooklyn Heart and Jason Monroe are the two biggest talents in their music label; while Brooklyn conquered the pop charts with her love songs, Jason won his legions of fans with his soulful music and sexy-mysterious aura. They’ve never worked together and never really thought it would ever happen until the higher ups thought it was a perfect idea. Now they’ll have to write a song together and perform it at...

    3.5 StarsThis story is light and fun. Brooklyn and Cami are hilarious but the love story between Brooklyn and Jason was just okay for me.

    4 duet stars!I was a little hesitant to read this book since I wasn't that impressed with my first RS Grey book. But after seeing some of my trusted friends' positive reviews -- friends that don't usually care for this type of stories -- I knew I just have to read this. And I loved it!Sure it wasn't super deep or super emotional but it was super fun and the characters were endearing and relatable despite the fact the MCs are both celebrities. The...

Everything I've read from her has been 4-5 stars in the past. Going in, I think I had anticipated a more serious tone based on my past reads. However, Scoring Wilder did have more humor than the previous books. This one right here I would defin...

    I'm reading the books in this series backwards. I read The Design last month and loved it. After seeing Brooklyn Heart in Cammie's book, I knew I wanted to read her story too.Brooklyn Hart and Jason Monroe are both successful and popular singers. They are both beautiful professionals, but they sing different genres. To bridge the gap, their record company came up with the idea that instead of performing two independent songs at the music awards t...

    ”It’s just…have you ever had sex with a Brazilian underwear model and thought, ‘Seriously, I thought this would be better’?”“Can’t say that I have.”I laughed at her dry retort. “Okay, well, it was terrible. No tingles, no fireworks, and definitely no happy ending.”“Are you serious?”“Dead serious.” I shrugged. “I’m over it. From now on, I’m just going to think of other things to do with my vagina.”“Yeah, you...

    Loving you would be easy as taking a breath.A pretty enemies to friends with benefits to lovers romance. I enjoyed the whole musicians having to work together plot. It was interesting, and it’s always fun to see emotions coming out through music.Brooklyn was a fun character. I liked that she wasn’t over the top with her personality, she just was her fun, confident yet unsure self. I liked her relationship with her sister Cammie as well. Jason...

    “He must be a kicker when he slept…or maybe he slept spread eagle. In the nude. With whipped cream.” There is nothing quite like a book that makes you smile so many times your jaw literally starts hurting! I went into this story somewhat blindly, drawn to the ‘opposites attracting’ type of scenario, but I never expected to become so easily captivated by the characters, or that the mere thought of them even a week after finishing this b...

    3.5 Funny Stars!I had totally forgotten that I had to review this for the release blitz so when reminded I quickly jumped in and hoped this would be good and not a slow read because that would have killed me at this point.I started this and could not stop after reading about Brooklyn Heart and Jason Monroe's awkward first encounter.Simply put its about two different singers who have but put together by their label to write a song for their duet.T...

    A hilariously clever heroine with a good dose of brooding male sexiness made this book a wonderful delight. It’s funny, witty, hot and endearing. When pop phenom Brooklyn Heart is programmed to write and perform a duet with soulful singer Jason Monroe, it’s more probable that they’ll end up writing an “I hate your attitude, let’s never see each other again” song, than the collaboration ballad their label is hoping to get. But between ...

    I Loved this! Super cute and sexy and refreshing! A pop princess and a brooding sexy solo artist... it was so funny at times and the sexual tension was boiling. I loved Brooklyn.. she was so hilarious and confident. No serious emotional baggage weighing her down... her and her sister did lose both parents several years earlier but it only made Brooklyn stronger. I do wish we would have got Jason's POV.. but besides that.. this was a page turner f...

    Now we're talking. You have no idea people how much I itch for this kind of read for a while now.. well, like a hormonal prego craving for chocolate ice cream with sprinkles on top that is. Light, funny and not overtly heavy with the drama. I lurve Jason. But Brooklyn is the icing on the cake, she is really hilarious but feisty. I love her. I am really a happy reader right now. Squeeee!

    Okay, so this is one of those lazy days when I'm just going to lay my thoughts out here without any introduction about the characters or the story. Everything seems to be fine - I was happy about the way the story's progressing, and the male lead (Jason) made me swoon even if he was one hell of a complex case, brooding, and alternating between hot and cold. But then his "secret" came out (don't worry, as it's going to be fine in the end, though i...

    I'm so disappointed that I didn't love this! I tried, I really did but I just couldn't! I liked it, yes, I did but I hate to say that I didn't love it! I made this weird connection between Brooklyn Heart and Keatyn Douglas (from Stalk Me). I really did not enjoy the Keatyn Chronicles - so Brooklyn was kind of set up for a loss. As I got more into the book, I disliked her less, but still didn't feel a great connection with her. Argh! I really didn...

    Definitely liked, but didn't love this one. I feel like I never really got to know Jason. He maybe had a total of a page worth of dialogue. Since character connection is such a big factor for me, I'm a little disappointed in this story. I wanted more from Jason but never really got it. Also, the humor is so forced when it comes to Grey's books, which is kind of annoying. Overall, I loved the idea of the book, but the delivery fell short. But it w...

    'What if the lights cut out? What if my microphone breaks? What if I forget my lyrics during the song? What if a bear gets set loose inside the Staples Center?'A hilarious fun quick read, a light love story. Loved the epilogues, laughed a lot. This is my first book of this author, and could become my to-go-writer when I need something light & LOL.
