My name is Hunter Jordan, lead singer of Hammered and no, I didn't name my cock Manaconda.

Rolling Stone did.

On the front cover of their damn magazine.

I still haven't lived it down. And now our record label wants to maximize the frenzy.

So, I have a brand new PR person–Kennedy McManus.
And she's making me insane.

I don't know whether to ignore her, yell at her, or push her up against the wall and kiss her smart mouth shut.

BEYOND OBLIVION - A Rockstar Romance full of sexy fun set within the world of our Lost in Oblivion series! You never know who you'll see show up in the books.

**** Warning: book does end on a cliffhanger ****

Review manaconda

Well, damn! I am choking on my words. I really liked Manaconda… despite it having one of my pet-peeves ~ insta-love/attraction – whatever you want to call it, there was insta and it didn’t bother me. WHY?!? Because these authors can write! This is the first I have read from them, and won’t be my last. What an awesome duo. I found their writing to be engaging and strong and kept me entertained. The only thing that kept me from reading this in one sitting was real life.

Kennedy McManus is a 28-year-old PR whiz. Her job is to clean up the image of her clients, to flip the script and to get her clients on the good side of the public. She was given a one-day job of capitalizing on the ‘Rolling Stone’ article about Hammered’s lead singer, Hunter Jordan, aka – Manaconda. He had a history of fighting  and a long list of girls he liked to entertain. So despite the flattering article on the inside, when the magazine posted a picture on their cover which declared he had a manaconda in his pants, the public went wild. Kennedy needed to figure out a way to ride the storm of publicity.

Manaconda 2

Hunter Jordan is the 32-year-old lead singer for the band, Hammered. Despite his past, he has grown up and the Hollywood scene is growing old. He’s tired of feeling like a commodity, a means to an end. So when the focus is switched off the band and onto his ‘manaconda’, he doesn’t like it. The only bright side is the sexy PR girl sent to ‘handle’ him. He wanted to get to know her, wanted her. So, if he had to sign a few autographs to keep her at his side, he would. He would even pretend to be her boyfriend.

As you can imagine, being the “it girl” in PR, having an affair with a client, yeah, not good. Especially when it is started soon after the meeting with said client. (This part had me a little uneasy, because she is a high-powered PR person and would NEVER put herself in that position – but, as with the insta, I was able to overlook this due to the writing.) But Kennedy’s attraction to Hunter was not to be denied, the magnetism between them too strong.

Manaconda 3

Was Kennedy putting her career at risk by being with Hunter? Could she ignore his past? Further, can he ignore her job? It perpetuates the thing he hates the most.

❝She steered the ship and showed people how to act, how to play, how to become the super famous.❞

Well, we don’t find out the answer to those questions… the damn cliff-hanger, why could they not have made this one book?!  Manaconda was a fun, light-hearted, steamy book. I can’t wait to read the next in the series!
