After graduating from the University of South Alabama, Scarlett Moore discovers her boyfriend of five months is actually married with a child on the way. Feeling used and heartbroken, she decides it’s time to take her best friend Jules’ advice to move to Atlanta and live with her. There, Jules helps her get a job at Entertainment Atlanta, where she works as an entertainment insurance agent. It’s not Scarlett’s dream job, but it’s better than not having a job at all, and who wouldn’t mind working with famous people, right?

Then she gets assigned to EA’s newest client, Kade Evans, rock star turned actor. Not only is he a drug addict, he’s also known for never dating the same girl twice. He’s tall, dark, and handsome, has an amazing voice, and good acting skills, but he’s also arrogant and intense.

At their first meeting, the chemistry between them is undeniable.

The love that comes later is unexpected.

But Kade’s life is full of secrets. His past has now intruded on his present and when Scarlett finds out what his secrets are, the real deception begins.

Okaaaay. I think the teaser is enough to make you want more!!!

The opening is as explosive as the rest of the pages. J.M. La Rocca didn't waste any time or any pages of the book. 

I don't think Lifeless is an apt title because this novel is everything but lifeless. It's hot, sensual, intense and sexy. I couldn't put it down if I wanted to. Kade was so consuming, like Scarlett, I was instantly drawn to him. I wanted to know him more. I wanted to know what his secrets are. I want him!!!! 

Scarlett wanted to make something of herself. So she worked her ass off during her college days and her love life wasn't really a priority.  After graduating from the university - her supposedly getaway with her boyfriend was ruined when she discovered that her boyfriend is married and his wife is with a child. Feeling heartbroken she decided to go to Atlanta where her best friend Jules live. She got a job as an entertainment insurance agent with the help of her friend. She wasn't really happy about her job but it was better than nothing. She wanted to focus on work, have a little fun but having a relationship wasn't really on her agenda. Until she met Kade. He's the newest client in the company Scarlett is working for. He's a rock star turned actor who is not only using drugs but a womanizer. He doesn't date the same girl twice. Her heart wasn't safe - but you could not really tell your heart whom to fall, right?

No matter how much Scarlett wanted to make their relationship platonic and strictly business, she couldn't help but to be drawn to Kade when he took his time in wooing her - wholesome lunch, flowers, the whole shebang BUT sex. Talk about anticipation. The moment they did - their world (including mine) rocked. #totallyepic!

But Kade is more than just your ordinary rock star. Not just because of his past, but has a lot of secret, and one of them could make her life at risk. He wouldn't even tell what they are. But once she knew,  will she be able to handle it? Or would it be wise for her to just walk away? 

I had a grand time reading Lifeless, more than just the steamy scenes, it had me laughing, swooning, and on the edge with the twists, but I am left wanting for more and eager to know Kade's secret.

I've had a passion for reading and writing for as long as I can remember. It has always been an escape for one reason or another. Now, I'm taking that passion and turning it into a book. My debut book Lifeless will be released late summer 2013. I can't wait for you to read this story that has been brewing in my head for over a year. :)
