Starstruck Standalone Series
By- Elle J Rossi
Publication Date- May 2015
Genre- New Adult Contemporary Romance
Welcome to STARSTRUCK, a showplace for talent, a playground for love.The hot nights amp up with Rossi’s novella JADED, part of a new contemporary continuity series by Beth Ciotta, Cynthia Valero, and Elle J Rossi. Three authors. One world.
Four years ago Brooklyn ran from that plea and straight toward what she dreamed would be a better future. An aspiring fashion designer destined for more than the boredom of small town life and the strain of a whiskey-saturated family, she launched herself toward the runways of New York.
Emmett couldn’t compete with the glitz of the big city, let alone erase Brooklyn’s emotional scars. When she turned down his proposal and left him behind, he poured what was left of his heart into his music. He got through with three rules: Play the guitar. Play the field. Forget about Brooklyn.
Now Brooklyn is back and the past and present collide inside Starstruck when Brooklyn fills in as lead singer for Emmett’s band. Night after night of thumping bass and passionately sung lyrics reminds them of every delicious memory they ever shared. But a sizzling attraction can only go so far when emotions are raw and trust is fragile. Emmett still wants forever. Brooklyn is only good at temporary.
Can two hearts find a way to truly connect off the stage, or will they stay forever jaded?

Share 5 things people might not know about you with us.

  1. I used to sing professionally for a living.
  2. I hate cold food.
  3. I’m a country girl at heart.
  4. I choose to believe in the unbelievable because who knows what’s really out there.
  5. I am very opinionated and often forget to turn on the filter.

What’s your favorite part of being an author? Definitely the escape. I love getting away from reality for a bit, creating new worlds, and getting to know the characters.

You write in several genres; do you have a favorite? I think that would be a toss up between paranormal romance and urban fantasy. Often the lines between those two are blurred anyway. Why?I love diving into a world of fantastical and supernatural beings. World building creates so many opportunities and really stretches the limits of my imagination. And, well, maybe part of it is because “others” are crazy sexy!

How does music affect your writing? To me, music is heart. Every song tells a story. Those stories evoke emotion. Emotion is the core of everything.

What do you have to have right at hand in order to write? Three things: books, music and coffee. I’m surprised I can sleep at all with the amounts of caffeine I consume in a day. I’m a better writer when I read. I try to read at least two books a week and this keeps me excited and fueled.

What one word would you use to describe your life? Gypsy.
