Well that's the story of Collaboration. And with the first chapter it starts off. This dual POV begins with Taryn at the Grammy Awards. Already I am intrigued because I love reading book about celebrities and the Hollywood lifestyle. And this book follows exactly that path.
Taryn, is what the industy calls "America's Sweetheart". Beautiful, young, blonde and a talented self made country music star. She's everywhere and they love her!! And she's up for Best Album...and so is Trace. Trace is a bad ass rapper. Hottest young rapper on the market. And when he wins over Taryn, she's furious. When he gets up on stage in front of millions to except his award, Taryn is expecting some punk kid. And she sort of gets that. But then she sees a different side to Trace. Something more softer when he's up on stage talking about his parents. For a second she's intrigued but it doesn't mean the blow of not winning that award still doesn't hurt. So that's their first encounter together. For her, let's hope its the last.
Let's talk about Trace for a second here. I need to show you what we are talking about.You need to see the gorgeous face and insanely hot body that Taryn is hating right now.
Holy moly!! Are you kidding me dude?? What goes on with that body?? And his eyes?? He is a beautiful black man with blue eyes that stare right through you!!! My god, I am done for. I don't care if you took my Grammy...dude, take my body!! and have at it! Seriously, look at him. You can't help yourself with a face like that.
Okay Trish, focus. Remember there is a review to write. And I haven't painted a great picture of Trace. That's because he doesn't paint such a great picture of himself in the media. He's a whore; Trace and his boys are known for their parties, and girls, and booze. Just coming off of his high and winning Best Album at the Grammy's, he has a reputation to uphold. Why not do a Collaboration with America's Sweetheart and make yourself look that much better. Hollywood!
So that's what happens...Taryn and Trace must collaborate on a song. They both do not want this, but the record company wants it. And they always get what they want. So when they meet up at the recording studio to work on their song, it just goes so very differently then they had imagined. First, of course, there is tension. But more so its sexual, hells yeah!!! But after the façade leaves them and the smoke clears, what you are left with is two very talented musicians. And they are both very surprised by this.
For me this where I fell in love with Trace. He's so different and there is so much more underneath that bad boy persona he gives off to the public. And he's so talented. But aside from the crazy chemistry that they share in the recording studio on a professional level, there chemistry runs way deeper than that.
Trace is left dumbfounded by her talents.
After there amazing time in the recording studio where they bonded in a way they never expected, they both go their separate ways, both touring the country. I love how they keep in touch with each other, via text messaging and late night phone calls. These two are just dying to get in each other pants. I mean I would, she's the purest of pure, sweet; his "Peaches". And Trace, is just a surprise to her. So after time apart and way too much sexual tension these two collaborate in a different way...with their bodies....
Holy crap. Trace is so hot!! And he does this sh*t to her over and over and over again. HMMM, all reasons for my re read!! HOLLA!!
The ways in which Trace seduces Taryn, and her body...She is no match for me. They fall.....hard....and I loved reading all about it. Again and again. Their dual POVs totally worked so well in this book. I needed and wanted to hear from both of them.
As much as you enjoy all the hot, steamy, panty dropping sex, this story is WAY more than that. Between the paparazzi, mixed up stories that are being told in the media, Taryn's overly obsessive mother/manager and Taryn's guitarist/close friend Ryder who is very much interested in her, there are just too many things working against them. And with touring and being separated, all this time apart just isn't not good. And the story becomes very angsty. I LOVE IT!!
So many times I had to speed read to just to get to the end of a chapter to figure out what the hell was going on. Frustrated and OMGing a hundred times....
The authors do such an amazing job of showing the reader their amazing connection, considering they aren't together for such a period of time. That's what I loved about it. You need strong dialog to support this, and I LOVED their dialog. The media just can't seem to accept an African American rap star dating a beautiful southern bell singing country music. So that is part of their struggle as a couple. Too many strikes against them. Can they fight it and survive it?
I have to say, what they go through in this book is heart wrenching, and real, and pulled at my heart, big time. And yes, we do have that "UGLY CRY" moment. Yes Trish had to put the iPad down, have her cry, a hard cry. I wasn't expecting all this emotion. And this book evoked so much emotion from me. Hence the RE read!
I am done telling you about Collaboration because there is soo much more to the story, I think you need to read it for yourself to see. The way in which the authors choose to wrap it all up...the kick ass epilogue....I can't say enough....I will gladly dish out 5 HOLLAS (5 Stars) for this amazeballs story!!
After reading this story of Trace and Taryn, I have to rank them in my top 5 couples of all time. This story was WONDERFUL!!! I love everything about this story except Trace's eye color. (LOL). Come one now, couldn't the brotha have hazel or maybe even gray eyes? Anyway, other than that, I thoroughly enjoyed this story. One of the reasons I enjoyed the story of Trace and Taryn was the fact that they were instantly attracted to each other, but after they were forced to collaborate a song together, they took the time to actually get to know one another. They became friends before lovers. I thought it was pretty cool that even though they were from two different worlds and they didn't think that they would ever have anything in common, they became the best of friends. The texts, the phone calls while they both were on their own separate tours were only making them become closer and they didn't even know it at the time.
Trace, the stereotypical "bad boy" of hip hop, seems to always finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time. He comes off as this arrogant a$$hole, who cares for nothing but where the next party is going to be and what next female he plans to spread open. But once you really get to know Trace, he is none of that. I guess it took the right woman to come along to tame him.
Taryn, she's "America's Sweetheart". She's sweet and innocent and seems to have a untarnished reputation. Soon, we find that Taryn is not so innocent and once her and Trace finally are able to spend some time together, you find out she is very much so the "bad girl" Trace needs. Trace was able to bring out feelings in Taryn that were never tapped into before.
These two together are an explosive couple in entertainment. I only wish there was an update on these two because I for one, could not get enough of them. Thank you Michelle Lynn and Nevaeh Lee for such a wonderful story and hopefully we will get to read Regina's story pretty soon.
