Spotlight: Brothers of Rock Series by Karolyn James

 Hi guys!! I have a great guest post from Karolyn James about her Brothers of Rock series.


Guest Post

My latest book release is titled Broken Sound and it’s the second book in the Brothers of Rock series. For those who haven’t read the first book (All Access) and don’t know much about the series, here’s a quick breakdown.

Brothers of Rock follows rock band, Chasing Cross, and each band member’s life on and off the stage. Each band member gets their own book, allowing me to explore each band member and create romantic rockstar love stories. See, on stage, they’re a band of brothers, but off stage, they’re individual people. They have lives, problems, and through it all, they have each other, the band, and the music. Plus romance. 

Part of the fun of the series is the ability to take the band members to different places and coordinate their shows and tours along with it. In the first book, lead singer Johnnie slips away on a break to take his new love interest to a secret cabin high in the mountains. It’s where he goes to write music, record lyrics, and unwind. It’s the perfect romantic spot.

In the second book, Broken Sound, Davey stays local because he has to. His original plan during a tour break was to write music with fellow guitarist, Danny, but his plans are thrown upside down when a woman shows up with a child and claims he’s the father. It keeps all the emotion right there in one spot… and the drama only gets worse when Davey falls in love with a woman and it’s not the woman who has his supposed child.

Now that I’m putting the finishing touches on the third book in the Brothers of Rock series, I’m taking things to a different state. I can’t give away too many details, but Danny must face not only a loss in his life but also a lost life coming back. He’s going home to take care of some personal matters and the last thing he expects to do is fall in love.

It’s such a blast writing these different rockstars (these sexy men!) and being able to take them to different places in each book. I hope everyone enjoys the settings as much as I do!
 
 
***For fans of Nashville the TV show and Bella Andre, the BROTHERS OF ROCK series is dramatic, sexy, romantic,and entertaining. It sizzles!***

With ALL ACCESS, a contemporary romance series begins that explores, life, love, and music. Join the five band members of Chasing Cross as they find that there's more to life beyond the stage.

BOOK DESCRIPTION:

Jess is caught off guard when a sexy stranger buys her a cup of coffee and asks her to sit with him. He's mysterious, nice, and even though he says the right things at the right time, Jess can sense that there's something hidden about him.
*
As Johnnie sits across from the beautiful woman, he can't believe she doesn't recognize him. Everyone does. It comes with the territory when you're the lead singer of one of the hottest bands in the world, Chasing Cross. With one more show to go before taking a small break in touring, it feels like luck is on Johnnie's side. That is, if he can find a way to tell Jess who he is, without scaring her off.
*
After her best friend begs her to come to a concert, Jess finds herself standing in the middle of a crowd. The lights are off, music begins, and the crowd erupts in cheers. She doesn't know much about the band, but that's all about to change. When the lights come on, Jess can't believe her eyes. The lead singer of the band is the man from the café.
*
Plucked from the crowd during the show, Jess makes her way backstage. The encore may have ended on stage, but the real show is just about to begin. Johnnie's passion quickly turns to romance but the more time he and Jess spend together, the more things get complicated. Johnnie has a big decision to make about himself and the band, testing his loyalty and love for the music, and when Jess's dreams start to come true, she starts to realize that true love exists, but it's not always an easy path to take.

Anna is a teacher and part-time waitress, desperate to make enough to pay off debts left to her by an ex-boyfriend who made her life a living hell.

The second Anna meets eyes with Davey, she feels something she's wanted for a long time. But with someone famous? That's impossible. Besides, Davey is there with a date.
