About the Author

Debra is a native New Yorker who made her escape to the suburbs. She often returns to her hometown to visit her favorite deli for a bagel with butter, because there’s no better bagel than a New York bagel. When not in search of bagels, Debra spends her time running Book Enthusiast Promotions, an online promotions company that helps indie authors spread the word about their books. She’s also the owner of The Book Enthusiast blog. She started writing lyrics in her wall-to-wall NKOTB bedroom at the tender age of thirteen while dreaming of the day she’d become Mrs. Jordan Knight. That dream never came to fruition, but she has continued to write. Now she’s working on her first novel.

New author alert, debut novel from Debra Presley who many
already know from the blogging world.
Abby Murphy, pop star, fashionista is who every girl wants to be.
Her boyfriend, Sean Haken is the seductive guitarist in her band.
He’s also what every girl wants.
She should be on top of the world only Abby's life isn't as perfect
as it looks.

Her conniving mother Vivien is her manager and controls every
aspect of her life from what to wear, who to date and even what
songs she sings.

Sean is a cheating snake who sees Abby as his way to the top.
To make things worse a reporter from a celebrity tabloid makes it
her business to uncover all the dirt in Abby’s life.

A story of lies and deception soon turns dangerous for Abby and
it is up to Danny Nuchie head of her security to keep her safe.

Well developed characters, a plot that flows through the entire
book and a physical attraction between Abby and Danny
will keep you entertained until the end.
Danny struggles with the loss of his ex and he won’t allow
distraction to get in the way of keeping Abby out the hands
her possessive ex boyfriend .

Deception from someone close to Abby puts her in grave danger.

Ugh, Vivien, Abby's mother was a piece of work. You’ll know what I
mean as you get to know her.

Between her sleazy mother and the over- zealous tabloid reporter
Danny was the only person in her life that didn’t want something
from her.
Abby leaned on Danny for strength, she trusted him and soon that trust turned into lust.

I was eager for a steamy night of oohs and ahhs but the author kept me waiting, baiting, teasing and I became frustrated wondering if it was going to happen.
It does but not as soon as I would have liked.

All in all a good debut for Author Debra Presley and I can’t
wait to find out what’s next.

~this review may contain minor spoilers~

“Abby, baby, I'm sorry. She followed me back, and I had a couple of drinks. It was stupid, I know. Please, please, baby, I'm sorry.”
“Don't. Don't you f****** come near me. Get out. We're done”
“Baby, you can't do this. You don't mean it. You know I love you. I made a mistake. Let's talk about this. You're tired.”
“You love me? That's f****** rich. I saw exactly how much you love me just now. Get out.”

Abby Murphy lives a life of glitz and glamour. For all appearances, she has everything a girl could ever dream of – fame, fortune and a loving relationship with her guitar player/boyfriend Sean – until the night she finds him in the arms of a groupie and calls things off. But Sean will not walk away easily. As it turn out, he has had ulterior motives for quite some time, motives he is in no way willing to give up on. Overnight it seems, Sean makes the change from smitten boyfriend to psycho ex bound and determined to get what he wants regardless of who gets hurt in the process. When even Abby's manager seems to side with her crazed ex, and having no idea who she can trust anymore, she turns to the only man who has ever made her feel truly safe – her head of security. All too soon she starts to develop feeling for the only man who understands her and just allows her to be herself, but he makes it clear he is just doing his job. When Abby finally takes control of her life, will she have the courage to lay it all on the line for him?

Danny Nucci knows he has allowed himself to become too emotionally attached to his client, but it is too late to turn back – he doesn't trust anyone else to keep her safe. But getting involved with the starlet is out of the question.

At the age of twenty-three, Abby Murphy is a famous pop-star with no say in her life, everything is decided for her in terms of what can further her career and she’s not a happy woman. She’s lost the passion for the music. Her manager is her mother, who controls every aspect of her life, including who she’s romantically involved with. When she catches her boyfriend cheating, confirmation of the many rumors that she’s ignored, she dumps him and neither he nor her mother takes it well. Now besides an unsupportive mother she has a stalker ex-boyfriend. Abby looks to the only person that she feels she can trust for protection, her bodyguard, who she has been finding herself attracted to.

Though he owns Nucci Securities, Danny Nucci personally took on the popstar’s protection. They’ve developed a friendship that is more than the employer employee relationship after a year of working together. He genuinely cares for Abby’s welfare and will support her decisions, he’ll do anything it takes to protect her from those that would harm her physically and emotionally, including going against her mother. That he feels for the popstar more than he should he tries to hide, emotions are distracting to the job and there are reasons from his past to not get involved. But when she’s put in danger he has a hard time controlling his feelings and keeping them from showing.

This romantic suspense book was also a coming of age story. There’s lots of action and suspense, angst, and drama. The romance was slow to develop and I would’ve liked to have felt the buildup more during the first two thirds of the book, to really have felt the burn increasing between them. The romance was overpowered by the storyline until the last third of the book.

The main protagonists were likable characters.
