Starling (Love in Los Angeles Book 1)


February 14, 2017


Hollywood’s newest star, 21-year-old J. Alex Cook never wanted to be famous, he just wanted to get out of Indiana. When he hooks up with Paul, a writer on a hit TV show, Alex is thrown into a web of relationships involving friends, lovers, and everything in between.

Forced to figure out what it means to live — and love — in the public eye, Alex’s quest to find his own happily ever after will make you believe love is possible… even in Los Angeles.

“A reader’s treasure that completely engaged me from the very beginning. I found myself talking to my kindle, offering advice, yelling, cringing, cheering and processing each emotional experience as if it was my own. The realities of life, love and self discovery that are presented in this highly character driven story are exceptional.”

– Review by Carly’s Book Reviews, September 11, 2014.

“This book is an absolute favorite of mine: it’s romantic and sexy but completely fresh and unique to the genre. The characters are complex and beautifully flawed, the writing is excellently crafted — both accessible at first read but subtle and nuanced. It takes very skilled writers to create characters you connect with instantly but who also unfold and reveal more about themselves with each additional reads. And you’ll want to read multiple times; this is a story and these are characters I absolutely did not want to let go.”

– Jude Sierra, author of Idlewild




Please note this is a high-heat, high-angst book and contains a character with a past history of a suicide attempt and self harm.
