You Really Got Me (A Rock Star Romance)
Penguin / January 6, 2015 / $7.99 print & digital
Emmie Valencia has what it takes to be the music industry’s hottest band manager. She just needs to prove it. Determined to discover a killer new band, Emmie is ready to make her move. First stop: Austin, Texas.
As a sizzling-hot lead singer, Slater Vaughn has no trouble raising heart rates—but his band’s been flat-lining for years. When Emmie, his bandmate’s sister, crashes with them in exchange for some free management, her industry know-how lands them a spot in the biggest music festival in Texas. But it isn’t just her business acumen that catches Slater’s attention. Emmie is sexy and warm, and—for the first time in his life—he wants more.
But as irresistible as Slater is, Emmie is done with musicians. In her experience, a man can’t be a rock star and someone to trust with your heart—but Slater is determined to show her he’s both.
The first in a new series, You Really Got Me is the story of Emmie and Slater, two tortured characters, both working towards their dream jobs but finding that their pasts hinder them from fully enjoying their successes. Both have emotional scars from their childhood that they’ve barely come to terms with. Erika Kelly weaves a poignant tale about uncompromising love. It gives a realistic, unfiltered look into the making of a rock band and all the turmoil that entails.
