Taryn aka Peaches is America's Sweetheart of country music her mom is the queen of momagers pushing her daughter into a crazy schedule to push her more into fame. Taryn loves singing but not the fame and she hated being called America's Sweetheart like she is an innocent Virginia which she isn't she's been through some stuff which I will not say. But when she gets word about the collaboration she's shock what kind of song can they be doing that will even sound good but after seeing him at the Grammy's where he got an award that she thought was hers she was intrigued.
Trace aka Aster Manning is a rapper who has had a hard life but in that life there are things that no one knows about except his cousin Dre who is the only blood related family member he has. His parents died and he has nightmares about it and since there is no one to tell him otherwise he does what he wants when even though he knows his parents would be disappointed. He can have all the women he wants and drugs and drinks he could wish for but he doesn't do drugs but drinking he does but not all the time like most but women he does due. He's known as a player and they're are pictures to prove it but when he sees this country singer at the Grammy's he can't get her out of his mind even though he thought she was younger than she is. So when his manager tells him he has to do a song with someone and Taryn's name comes up he is against it what do they have in common.
But when they meet in the studio they gell so well it's crazy it stuck from there because they both can't stop thinking about each other. How could they work when they got nothing in common? How can they get by the secrets they both have? We'll read and find out because it's an amazing book and well written by Michelle and Nevaeh.
I have been in a bit of a book slump lately and this story was a very pleasant surprise! Although the story features 2 high profile music stars who are the epitome of opposites attracting, I never felt like this story was a re-tread of something I have read before. Too often recently I have found myself picking up a new book only to feel like I have been there and done that- thank you to the authors for breaking the mold there!!
Trace was hot- sometimes sweet, sometimes a little alpha and always proving he was more than his stage persona. Taryn may have been America's Sweetheart but she wasn't naive, innocent or sugary- I really enjoyed her. Put them both together and there were a few times I thought my kindle would melt!
I really loved Gina in this story and would love to see her get her own book!
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!!
