Not all desires are shiny and sweet—and the dark ones might change you forever…

It’s not the kind of obsession a tough Army guy can admit to—a jones for Ava, the pretty-princess pop star. Not just her body, the perfect product that sells all those magazines. Her music.

The critics call her human lip gloss, all style and no substance. To Joe Ivanchan, Ava is the exact blend of reality and fantasy that he can tolerate, the closest he’s willing to get to giving his heart after the injury and breakdown that got him out of the service.

But Ava is real. She’s a flesh and blood woman with a publicity machine and an album deadline, along with a whole team of handlers paid to shellac a pristine sheen over a damaged, desperate soul. A woman with fears, with secrets, with desires.

When Joe finds himself in an interview to join her security team as her driver, his instinct is to get away. But the woman behind Ava’s carefully focus-grouped image is even harder to walk away from. The angry needs tormenting her speak to something within Joe. Something empathetic, protective—and primal…

Besides, even a falling star can light up the darkest night.


~”Shooting Star is a heart-wrenching love story that starts in the dark, but ends in the light.  Though dealing with serious issues, the redemption of self they each find through and with each other is utterly compelling.  Ms. Kennedy surprised me with a dark but passionate story of how even dark desires can lead to healing light; that two broken souls can find themselves whole, together.”

~That’s What I’m Talking About

~”Great sexy scenes and a relationship that developed at a believable pace. I have to admit I was skeptical about a heroine who is a rock star, but Kennedy made her believable and sympathetic, not to mention interesting.
Kept me turning pages long after I should have gone to bed.”

~Happy Camper

~”I always enjoy reading books from this author! Shooting star is a beautifully written love story about two broken people. Ava is a beautiful and tough heroine and the hero is brave and strong. A wonderful read!”


~”Kennedy’s writing brought this tabloid-filled plot line to life. Contemporary romance isn’t a genre that I read often but I couldn’t put this book down. “

~Alexia Chantel on Goodreads

~”Shooting Star is packed with secrets, lies and betrayal. At it’s very core it’s about two broken people who’s jagged edges forge something that I can only describe as ugly-beautiful.”
