We are so excited for this Promo Event for J.L Brooks’ Falling Stars Volume #1.
Drugs, Sex, & EDM
It had all the makings of a perfect plot, and for bestselling author Lila Keaton-it was a hedonistic past she kept hidden far away. Many nights were spent crossing the velvet rope, dancing until dawn and bedding one of the worlds biggest DJ’s, Hunter Michaels AKA Arial Assault.
When Lila’s agent uncovers her thrilling secret, it appears as if nothing is off limits when it comes to pitching the story, whether Lila wants to tell it or not. Despite knowing her reluctance is career suicide, she cannot bring herself to open her heart once more to the man who nearly destroyed it.
Given the opportunity to escape her predicament, Hunter attempts to reconcile the pain he has caused, and rekindle the passion that was abandoned long ago. When a series of events causes history to repeat itself, Lila sets off unaccompanied through out the west to test her boundaries with the sensual and surreal, and ultimately come face to face with the only thing that can keep her from falling.
My chin quivered hearing the regretful confession. The chasm of humiliation
grew wider with every passing second. The words poured out of my heart without any levee to hinder their impact.
“It’s fitting you know. Everything about us has always been a mistake. One or the
other has always been doing something careless or with poor reasoning. Do you know
why I won’t write the story? Because there isn’t a happy ending.
I don’t know how to finish it. No one wants to buy a book where the characters go their separate ways, hurt and broken. Unless they know there is a possibility at some type of reconciliation and the fairytale ending. Our story doesn’t have that, and writing it otherwise would feel forced,
because I knew it was a lie.”
JL Brooks is a former columnist turned novelist. What started as a bet changed her entire
course in life. With a passion for adventure, she believes everyone has a story to tell.
Chances are she will try to convince you to tell yours.
