New Release, Excerpt & Review of Seeing Stars by J. SterlingWhat a cute quick read. I really enjoyed this one by J. Sterling. It was enjoyable and I will definitely be reading the next book in this series. Listen up, there is NOT a cliff-hanger (I know you will like to hear that) and it sounds like we will be meeting many more celebrities created in this world of J. Sterling.Walker Rhodes…. He is ummmm Yummy… he certainly has his appeal and I for one would certainly be a fangirl. Madison (a/k/a Sparkles… you’ll see) is a strong-willed female with a backbone in a cut-throat business – I wanted to join in and give her a high five or a fist bump at a certain part of this book.Sometimes you just want and need to change the pace of the books you read. This book was NOT heavy, over-the-top, did not have dominating sex and was not a big tear-jerker, all of which seems to be my trend in reading lately and it is really refreshing to be able to just read and enjoy the sweet ride with Seeing Stars.
Walker sat on one of the stage steps, his chin in his hand as he spoke to the screaming crowd. “I need a volunteer for this next part.” His head raised slowly, his eyes scanning the crowd.Keri jumped up and down like a crazy person, waving her arms and screaming his name. I laughed at her antics and sat perfectly still, not wanting to bring any more unwanted attention to myself.Another tap on my shoulder caused my irritation to bubble as I turned to what was sure to be that annoying overly made-up stupid girl again.It wasn’t.I came face-to-face with a giant of a man wearing all black and holding a walkie-talkie. Intimidated, I took a half step back and looked around for Keri.“Come with me.” His tone implied a demand, not a request, and I suddenly wondered what I’d done wrong.Who the hell was this guy? He’s not the boss of me. He’s not going to tell me to come with him and think I’ll just obey. I frowned and said quickly, “Uh. No, thanks.”He flashed his VIP backstage pass in my face as if it were the only credential he needed. “Miss. It’s part of the show. Can you come with me, please? You’ll be onstage with Mr. Rhodes.”Oh.Well, shit.I guess he could be the boss of me, after all.I shot Keri a surprised look before I was quickly hauled off in the direction of an almost completely darkened backstage area. We walked through a black curtain before we were hit with lights and blaring music.“I’m going to bring you onstage.”“And then what?” I asked, suddenly nervous. Not to be around Walker Rhodes, but nervous at the thought of standing in front of thousands of screaming people with cell phones ready to record my every move.I started to tremble. Afraid my legs wouldn’t hold me up any longer, I begged the security guy to help me out there. He smiled at me and gave me a little shove.Thanks, you dick.Next thing I knew, I was standing onstage, my face mere inches from Walker’s. Walker no-human-being-should-be-anywhere-near-this-gorgeous-in-real-life Rhodes.I got fired from my last job.It’s true.I know you’re sitting there thinking, “Jenn, how could anyone in their right mind fire someone as amazing and awesome as you are???” And i’d love to give you a good reason, but the truth is… being This! Awesome! is clearly very scary to other less awesome people. 🙂So I said screw them and started writing my first book. And you know what I realized? Writing books that mean something to me is a million times better than working my ass off for someone who doesn’t really care about anything other than the bottom line.My soul feels more satisfied.My heart, more full.So thank you for reading, loving and recommending the stories I write.I think you’re awesome- and not only am I not scared of other awesome people, I want them on my team!Click HERE to read a post where I talk about how you all have changed my life.
