BOOK ONE: New hire Shauna McIntyre joins The Charisma Group, a New York-based talent agency specializing in social media management. Even though she has never been much of a fangirl in her personal life, Shauna expects that her signature professional task is managing the online fandom of her famous clientele. What she didn’t expect was to fall in love with one of them.
R&B sensation King Smith has made a career of singing soulful tunes and strumming his guitar for his adoring fans. King also harbors a secret: he’s in recovery for sex addiction. When King lays eyes on Shauna, the crooner with a craving for no-strings lust decides to change his life in an effort to hold on to her.
Once King is tempted by the admiration of a persistent online fan, Shauna has a decision to make. When professional lines are blurred and relentless love takes hold, will Shauna sacrifice her rising career for an affair with a famous man with a seemingly insatiable thirst for his fandom?
BOOK TWO: “They say walking away from the one you love is one of the hardest things you’ll ever do…”
King Smith is blocked.
The R&B superstar’s latest project is producing the soundtrack for the book-to-film, Everything in the Stars. When the crooner hits a writer’s block, he links up with his former songwriting partner (and former lover) songstress Silk Matthews for inspiration. When the two rekindle their creative spark, the sensual memories of their romance begin to resurface.
Social media exec Shauna supports King, but is struggling with his reunion with Silk. King’s late nights at the studio with the sexy siren begin to take a toll on Shauna. When tensions reach a fever pitch, Shauna finds comfort in an unlikely source: Everything in the Stars novelist Jake Vasquez.
This anticipated sequel to The Follow finds a sensual love affair in peril. Will a shot at a hit song destroy King and Shauna’s love, forcing them to find solace in the arms of new (and old) loves?

The post on IG that started the read. This review was not requested. I read it on KU. This was posted by author @amdavis on her IG feed, and I was intrigued. I had never heard of this author or read any of her stuff before so I reached out to the author that made the post to find out the name of the book with such intense warnings. Some authors called it a marketing ploy, well it worked, I read the book and discovered a new author in the process. Earlier in the week another author mentioned people should try reading a book outside of their normal genre and comfort zone. Challenge accepted. In preparation I strapped on my mental protection helmet, my invisible Kevlar jacket to protect my heart and packed a parachute if it was too much for me and stepped off the precipice of safe reads and free fell into the abyss. My lovelies, it was so worth the journey. First off, I am not going to go over the trigger warnings, they are clearly defined in the picture above. So without any more
