Find on

When 27-year-old pop sensation Brooklyn Heart steps in front of a microphone, her love songs enchant audiences worldwide. But when it comes to her own love life, the only spell she’s under is a dry one.

So when her label slots her for a Grammy performance with the sexy and soulful Jason Monroe, she can’t help but entertain certain fantasies... those in which her G-string gets more play than her guitars'.

Only one problem. Jason is a lyrical lone wolf that isn’t happy about sharing the stage—nor his ranch — with the sassy singer. But while it may seem like a song entitled ‘Jason Monroe Is an Arrogant Ho’ basically writes itself, their label and their millions of fans are expecting recording gold…

They’re expecting The Duet.

The Duet will be priced at $2.99 for two days post-release, then the price will bump to $3.99!


An ARC was provided in exchange for an honest review. Thank you so much R.S. Grey!

I love rom com books! They are fun to read. I love a good laugh every now and then. The lightness of the story is a refreshing change from all the angsty, gut-wrenching books that dominate the market nowadays. 

The Duet is a funny, engaging and sweet romantic comedy. This is gleeful, entertaining and enjoyable to read. Ms. Rachel had captured and enamored the voracious reader in me.

This book is about two famous singers under one label. They were partnered to do a duet in the upcoming Grammy Awards show. Their personalities clash and they're the exact opposite of one another. The challenge lies on how they will be able to come up with a song that will deliver both of their persona.

Jason Monroe is a brooding, hot and temperamental folk singer. At the start, he really grated on my nerves. He doesn't hide the fact that he dislikes Brooklyn, but the situation forced them to work. It's apparent that he's also attracted to Brook. When a few days have passed and still they came up with no song, Brook suggested they have sex to diffuse the sexual tension around them... He readily agreed! They have an agreement though, there won't be anything other than sex between them.

I like how they progressed from thereon. I also love the development of the song. However, the way Brooklyn came up with the end verse is not that favorable for me since it's caused by some misunderstanding. 

This misunderstanding is resolved in the end. We need a happy ever after right? Through the help of some caring persons, Jason and Brook are able to resolve their differences. The way Jason asked for her forgiveness is a real swoony scene!

Brooklyn is a very lovable character. I love her internal musings. She's witty, and never fail to make a come back to Jason's aggressiveness. She's downright hilarious. Not to mention that she's on top of her chosen field, being the famous pop singer. I love that she's not the snotty kind, she's grounded and she loves her sister so much. She's really down to earth and good to her fans.

The Duet captivated me from the start. Brooklyn and her sister Cammie crack me up. Oh! The things they say never fail to draw a laugh from me. Their sisterly bond is endearing. Being orphaned at a young age made them close to each other. They support one another, and they're each other's best friend. I love their interactions and how they show how they truly love each other.

After reading two books (Scoring Wilder and this) from R.S. Grey, I am now a big fan! I like the way she writes, and how she makes her characters real and enchanting. If you want to take a break from emotional reads, look no further, this book is for you.

The M Lounge was the hippest and most discreet club in LA. If there was any hope of me locking down a one-night stand, M Lounge was the place to go.

“I can’t drink much tonight because I have that meeting with my record label in the morning,” I warned as we passed through the back entrance to the club and headed up a set of stairs that were used exclusively for the VIP level. Fun fact: one time I was going up those stairs when P. Diddy was coming down, and he totally touched my ass. Allegedly.

“Just to clarify: if you’re begging me for tequila shots at midnight, threatening to kill my first born if I don’t give them to you, I should still tell you no?” Cammie asked, just to ensure the boundaries were set. Better safe than sorry.

“That was one time and it was in Cabo,” I protested. “What else are you supposed to do in Cabo other than challenge a mariachi band to a tequila shot contest until the lead singer passes out beside a donkey?”

Cammie held up her hands and started listing off items. “I dunno— enjoy the beach, check out the museums and the culture—”

“That was a rhetorical question,” I interrupted as we made it to the top of the stairs.

As if by magic, the black curtain in front of us swept to the side, opening up an entire room of drunken debauchery before us. In one corner, a celebrity who shall remain nameless (we’ll call her Nennifer Janiston) was sucking face with a sexy man, and across the room two of the funniest women in comedy were doing body shots off of a waiter from the club.

“Welcome to the behind the scenes of Hollywood,” I whispered to Cammie.

I am a lover of books, chocolate, reality TV, black labs, and cold weather. Seriously, if I had it my way, I would be curled up on the couch with all of those things... everyday.

I live in Texas where I spend my free time writing and reading. My favorite authors include Mindy Kaling & Jonathan Safran Foer. I'm a comedy geek and love all things "funny". Women like Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Mindy Kaling are definitely the biggest inspirations for my writing, though I think my work tends to skew a bit smuttier than theirs.
