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?



Emmett came to a dead stop at the kitchen doorway. She felt the heat of his gaze as it skimmed over her body, from the tips of her sock-clad feet to the top of her head. Maybe her shirt was a little snug, her shorts a little tight. That didn’t mean she’d dressed this way with Emmett in mind. Except she had.

His smile came slow and screamed sexy as hell. She tried to contain her shiver and failed.


She shook her head, popped another chip in her mouth.

“Wanna share?”


He leaned against the doorframe. “Let me get this straight. You’re in my kitchen, sitting on my counter, devouring my chips, and you’re not gonna share with me.”

“Three out of four. Not bad, Tyler.” Licking the salt from her lips, she stuck her hand in the bag and grabbed as many chips as she could hold.

“You sure about that? Only three? Which one did I get wrong?”

“Number three. I wasn’t devouring. I was savoring.” She crammed a handful of chips in her mouth. “Now I’m devouring.” She could hardly get the words out around the mouthful of chips.

Emmett shoved off the wall and moved toward her, his movements precise and deliberate.
