Author: Brenda St John Brown is a New Yorker turned Brit who writes contemporary romance novels, and loves to have the occasional American character transplanted to England (much like herself).
One of the wonderful things about being friends with an author is that author introducing you to her author friends and their books. Through her I have discovered so many great writers and, sometimes, I even get lucky enough to be sent an ARC! (If only because she tells me of when a request form is available online for a book I really should read). This is the case for the latest Advance Reader Copy I had the pleasure of receiving:

Then Ben Fagan comes crashing into her life. British and alone in the Big Apple, the struggling actor is looking for an escape—minimum commitment, maximum fun—anything to avoid returning across the pond.

Synopsis: Jesse Kingston is a tall, dark, and gorgeous temptation I find hard to resist. I was twelve when I started crushing on him, and seventeen when I met him by chance. Now here I am, twenty-three, and I’m one of the two actresses in the video for his band’s latest single. It ends up not being as simple as doing a job and going home… There is no avoiding him and, after spending so much time with him, I’m not sure I want to. When he proposes a weekend together I throw caution to the wind and I say yes. The only question is: Will one weekend be enough? Will our time together end up changing this bad boy or will it end up changing me?
