However, when a PR disaster serves as a wake-up call about his life and lands him in rehab, he finds himself with Lena, a new assistant to keep him out of trouble.

Lena's not willing to take any crap from the sexy rocker and is determined to keep their relationship completely professional, despite their sizzling chemistry. But when Jimmy pushes her too far and Lena leaves, he realizes that he may just have lost the best thing that ever happened to him.

Lead will be out in e-book on July 29, 2014, and in paperback on November 25.

And now for the final piece of today's exclusive excerpt from Lead! Missed the beginning? Here's where you can catch up:

Ready for more? Jump right in with a brand-new peek at Jimmy and Lena's story.

So I frowned straight back at him. Jimmy Ferris, lead singer for the band. Ex-addict. And my heart break in the making.

His glare went up a notch.

I matched it.

“Why, I think she’d make you a fine live-in assistant,” said Mal. “Tell him, Lena.”

“A live-in assistant?” I parroted, clueless.

“Since when did I need an assistant?” Jimmy looked me over from top to toe, lips tight with obvious disapproval.

“Since you can’t seem to keep a sobriety companion.” His brother returned calmly. “But it’s your call. If you don’t want to give her a go, the record company’ll find you another companion. Someone suitable.”

Jimmy cringed. The broad shoulders filling the suit curved inward. I almost felt bad for him.

“They gotta luck out and get someone you can stand being around eventually, right?” asked David. “You been doing good, but we can’t afford for you to get off track now.”

“I’m not going to get off track.”

“We go on the road soon. Your routine is gonna be shot to shit. Sorta situation where you could fall back into old habits easily.”

“All right, Dave. All right. Christ.” Despite his brother talking, Jimmy’s ice cold gaze never left me. “I’ll hire her.”

Beside me, Mal thrust his fists in the air, making muted crowd type noises.

“But I don’t want you getting in my face all the time,” said Jimmy, staring me down.

“You’re offering me a job as your live-in assistant?” I asked, just to be sure.


“What does the position involve and what does it pay?”

“It involves you not getting in my face and it pays double what you make here.”

My brows crept skyward.

“You don’t report back to anyone about what goes on with me unless I go into meltdown,” he said. “Then you only talk to one of the guys in the band or our head of security. Got it? That understood?”

“What sort of meltdown, exactly, are we talking about?”

“Trust me, if it happens, you’ll recognize it. What was your name again?”



“No. Lena. L.E.N.A.”

Adrian made a faint gargling noise like someone was choking him. But it didn’t matter. The only thing that mattered was the way Jimmy Ferris’s forehead smoothed out. The anger or tension or whatever it was disappeared from his face. He didn’t smile. Didn’t even come close to it. But for just a moment, I wondered what it would take to make him.

Curiosity was a killer.

“Le-na,” he rolled my name off his tongue like he was trying it on for size. “Okay. Stay the fuck out of my way and we’ll see what happens.”
