✪ Blog Tour ✪ James Black ✪ Skye Turner ✪

James Black, the hottest name in Hollywood. Blockbuster films, tabloid headlines, and broken hearts surround this golden playboy.

Avangeline Price, a strong willed, tough as nails, zero tolerance for games woman who believes love only exists in books and movies.

James is accustomed to women falling at his feet. Avangeline has an intense dislike of celebrities and an even bigger dislike of James Black.

She's unimpressed. He's intrigued. Both have preconceived notions.

sometimes the unscripted territory is what matters most. 

When Hollywood meets Louisiana, can real life rival the movies?

***This book contains explicit sex and graphic language. It is NOT recommended for readers under the age of 18 OR those who do not read this type of book. 

ARC received for an honest review.

I have read and enjoyed Ms Turner's Bayou Stix series so the chance to read the first in her new series James Black was a no brainer for me.

James Black is the Hollywood superstar that every woman wants - except one.

AJ - who he thought was going to be a man - takes an instant dislike to the man when she first meets him.  And I have to say I don't blame her.

He is an arrogant man when it comes to women, and I cheered for AJ as she gave him what for.

You know where this is going right?  Dislike turns to lust turns to like turns to love.  There is nothing new or exciting in the plot line.  We have all read the rock/movie star-wins-normal-girl/guy story before.

AJ is the star of this book, not James Black.  I could love him or leave him.  AJ is sassy, smart mouthed, but stronger than she looks.  I cannot blame her for her anti-man feelings, why she has trust issues with people. 

So, can AJ and James get over their differences and their issues and make a go of a relationship?  Will they find love?  Can they have a HEA?

Nope for that you need to read for yourself.

I love the imagery that Ms Turner puts into her writing.  I could imagine myself looking over the river and the swamps, looking at the Capitol building in Baton Rouge (this little Aussie was there a few months ago!), the sights and sounds of a sound stage.

There is another James Black novel coming (Becoming James Black) but you can read this as a standalone.

Bright lights, big city the perfect place to lose yourself.
Thats the impression I first got of Los Angeles and its the impression I still have today. The city of Lost Angels. I fit right in here, though Id call myself more of a devil on any given day. 
This is where I started over. This is where the boy with nothing took on the world and became the man who has people at his beck and call for every little whim. 
As I look around at my hillside mansion overlooking the city, I laugh cockily at the way life has panned out.
Do I have love? No, but I have money. I have adoring fans and people follow me wherever I go. It works. Is it a perfect life? Of course not. Being in the public eye, never having any privacy... But, it is what it is and it
s the life Ive chosen. Its the life for me. 
 The large clock chimes in the foyer and I glance at my bags near the door. The limo driver should be pulling up at any second. 
Next stop Louisiana. Not at all where I want to spend the next year and a half of my life, but its where filming is and filming keeps my bank account happy. All of them. This three movie deal should easily drop another chunk of change into them. 
Not that I money is something I really need more of. 
Smiling at the thought and the irony of that logic, I open the door just as the bell rings. 
Mr. Black. Good morning, Sir. Ill get your bags into the car and in just a few minutes, well be off. Is there anything else you need before we head to the airport? 
I think about that 
No, I think Im good. 
He nods, Very good, Sir. Let me take these.
