James Black Tour~ Skye Turner

JAMES BLACK BY SKYE TURNER BLOG TOUR



James Black, the hottest name in Hollywood. Blockbuster films, tabloid headlines, and broken hearts surround this golden playboy. 


Avangeline Price, a strong willed, tough as nails, zero tolerance for games woman who believes love only exists in books and movies. 



James is accustomed to women falling at his feet. Avangeline has an intense dislike of celebrities and an even bigger dislike of James Black. 



She's unimpressed. He's intrigued. Both have preconceived notions.



But… sometimes the unscripted territory is what matters most. 



When Hollywood meets Louisiana, can real life rival the movies?
***This book contains explicit sex and graphic language. It is NOT recommended for readers under the age of 18 OR those who do not read this type of book. 


Prologue
James
            Bright lights, big city… the perfect place to lose yourself.
That’s the impression I first got of Los Angeles and it’s the impression I still have today. The city of Lost Angels. I fit right in here, though I’d call myself more of a devil on any given day.
This is where I started over. This is where the boy with nothing took on the world and became the man who has people at his beck and call for every little whim.
As I look around at my hillside mansion overlooking the city, I laugh cockily at the way life has panned out. 

            Do I have love? No, but I have money. I have adoring fans and people follow me wherever I go. It works.
Is it a perfect life? Of course not. Being in the public eye, never having any privacy... But, it is what it is and it’s the life I’ve chosen. It’s the life for me.
The large clock chimes in the foyer and I glance at my bags near the door. The limo driver should be pulling up at any second.
Next stop… Louisiana. Not at all where I want to spend the next year and a half of my life, but it’s where filming is and filming keeps my bank account happy. All of them. This three movie deal should easily drop another chunk of change into them.
Not that I money is something I really need more of.
Smiling at the thought and the irony of that logic, I open the door just as the bell rings.
“Mr. Black. Good morning, Sir. I’ll get your bags into the car and in just a few minutes, we’ll be off. Is there anything else you need before we head to the airport?”
I think about that…
“No, I think I’m good.”
He nods, “Very good, Sir. Let me take these.”

REVIEW

I loved this book! James Black was my first Skye Turner read but is just the beginning of a love afair with her books for me. This book captures your attention from the very start and reels you in to make you keep reading it. 

AJ is a native Louisianian and favorite driver to the stars when in town and James is a Hollywood screen legend with a mouth that tends to set people on edge. He thinks people should all know and love him and sometimes that just isn't the case....


AJ (Avengeline) is spunky, fiery and takes no prisoners. Her quick response to anything James says to get her goat just eggs him on further- he cannot resist engaging that red hot temper of hers. This push and pull between them makes for a very entertaining and awesome read. It was a quick one for me, as I was unable to put it down when I opened it, and thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish. 


Something else to love about James Black, aside from the chemistry and fabulous character development of not just James and AJ but also Scarlet (loved her!) but that you are allowed a history lesson on the great state of Louisiana several times in the book when AJ takes James around to view the sites. You get some great insight and background about the Capital and other Baton Rouge monuments and I did not know Le Bon Temps and vampires were made up! Damn you True Blood! ;) 


Honestly, it makes a huge difference in the enjoyment of a book to have it well thought out, well developed, a great plot and good editing and this one had all of that to me. Looking forward to book two and the continuation of this series. I would highly recommend James Black and anything Skye Turner going forward. Five stars.
