#MFRWHooks 1: Press Play – a Rock Me Baby short read

This week I’ve joined the Marketing For Romance Writers

logo book hooks

group, Book Hooks meme in which authors post 6-8 sentences of their latest works or WIPs. My contribution is a sample of Press Play from the Rock Me Baby series, detailing the stories of 4 band members of Airi Moon.  Check out the details and all the other book hooks below!


Publisher:  Crave  
Genre: Suspense, African-American Romance
Length: Novella   
Heat Level: Erotic Romance  
Themes: Bad girl with a love ’em and  leave ’em attitude meets her match with the sexy doctor
Drummer girl for Airi Moon, Play Baptiste is living her dream, loving life and her hot affair with ER Doctor Preston Stevens. Though they have a long standing no-strings, no-complications arrangement, Play can’t help thinking of what her life would be like if she put down roots with Press.


Preston Stevens is a man who could have any woman he wants, only it’s the bad girl drummer that sets his soul on fire and captures his heart. Their arrangement has worked out well for his chaotic schedule until the night Press is unable to save the woman his brother loves from a tragic car accident. In an instant, he is reminded that life is short and wants to grab hold of what he knows for sure:   his love for Play. 




 I opened my eyes. Things didn’t work like that in my world. Good breaks weren’t natural, but when they did show up, I took off at neck-breaking speed to keep up. There hadn’t been many good breaks, but the greatest would be the moment I was taken in by the Reynolds. And joining Airi Moon.



Who would have thought I’d be here, living and breathing, let alone having hordes of fans dig the band’s music, my music?


I didn’t want to remember how many nights I’d awaken from a cold sweat, heartbeat racing from the nightmares.  I didn’t have to remember, there was only this moment. Music is my solace and everything I thought I’d ever need.

Until I met him.
