MARRY ME, BROOKLYN.
Four years ago Brooklyn ran from that plea and straight toward what she dreamed would be a better future. An aspiring fashion designer destined for more than the boredom of small town life and the strain of a whiskey-saturated family, she launched herself toward the runways of New York.
Emmett couldn’t compete with the glitz of the big city, let alone erase Brooklyn's emotional scars. When she turned down his proposal and left him behind, he poured what was left of his heart into his music. He got through with three rules: Play the guitar. Play the field. Forget about Brooklyn.
Now Brooklyn is back and the past and present collide inside Starstruck when Brooklyn fills in as lead singer for Emmett’s band. Night after night of thumping bass and passionately sung lyrics reminds them of every delicious memory they ever shared. But a sizzling attraction can only go so far when emotions are raw and trust is fragile. Emmett still wants forever. Brooklyn is only good at temporary.
Can two hearts find a way to truly connect off the stage, or will they stay forever jaded?
About The Author-
Elle J Rossi is a writer of Dark Paranormal and Fantasy Romance. Overly fond of the happily ever after, Elle lets her characters take control as they lead her down dark and twisted paths on their haunting journey toward love.
When not writing, you'll more than likely catch her hanging with her husband, two kids and a cat who truly does rule the roost, or stealing the mic from her friends as the duel over country karaoke.
Tears brimmed her eyes. His fingers itched to brush them away. But she wouldn’t want that. She’d been in town for less than twenty-four hours and he’d already fallen back in love with her. Hell, he could at least be honest with himself. He’d never fallen out of love. Maybe that made him a punk. He’d been called worse.
“They don’t have any food at the house. I have to buy them food. They need to eat. I have to feed them. I have to…”
Emmett pulled her to him, wrapping his arms around her shoulders and holding tight. He heard one hitched breath and knew the tears had spilled over, but he wouldn’t mention that. He’d never say a word about her tears. “You remember how to drive the truck, right?”She nodded against his chest. He lifted her chin with one finger and pressed his lips to her tear-wet mouth. She sighed, leaning into him. He could have taken it further, his body wanted to. But his heart told him to stop. She wasn’t his, no matter how much he wanted her to be. Not yet, anyway.
