It shouldn't be a secret that I adore Karina Halle's contemporary novels. I was so excited and intrigued when I learned she had written a novel with her husband, Scott Mackenzie! (As they say in their author bio for this book, it's like her novel Smut come to life! And if you haven't read Smut, you should.) Rocked Up is set to be released on April 12th.
Here's what the novel is about:
Rocked Up is a STANDALONE rockstar romantic comedy and the fun and sexy brainchild of New York Times bestselling author Karina Halle and her husband Scott Mackenzie.
I have been watching him since I was a child.
He didn't notice me back then and it didn't matter. Brad Snyder, guitarist and singer for one of the world's greatest bands, was my entire life.
My father, the CEO of Ramsey Records, takes credit for all of Brad's success, trying to control him in the same way he's controlled me.
But I finally get an opportunity to prove myself.
To be wild.
To be free.
Today I'm auditioning to be the replacement bass player for Brad's band. If I get the job, I'll go on tour and work with Brad every day, in very close proximity.
There's only one rule: he's not allowed to touch the boss's daughter.
Remember when I said that Brad never used to notice little ol' me?
Well, Brad's noticing me now.
In a way that's going to get us both in trouble.
My name is Lael Ramsey and we all know how this will turn out.
Doesn't that sound great?
Hang Le has designed many of Halle's covers in the past and I adore her work. Ready to see her latest work? You bet you are!
I'll admit that I hadn't realized the play on words until I saw the pregnancy test on the cover. Knocked up, rocked up. It makes me even more intrigued about this book - and I hope you are too!
Karina Halle is a former travel writer and music journalist and The New York Times, Wall Street Journal and USA Today Bestselling author of The Pact, Smut, The Artists Trilogy, Heat Wave and over 20 other wild and romantic reads. She lives on an island off the coast of British Columbia with her rescue pup and her husband Scott Mackenzie, who co-wrote Rocked Up with her. That's right. It's like the book SMUT come to life! This is their first venture as a writing team. A lot of music was played. A lot of laughs were had. A lot of sex was...put in the book!
