The second Jenna Quigley turns eighteen, she’s headed to L.A. to extend the timer on her fifteen minutes of fame. Too bad her dad made her promise to graduate high school first. Silver lining? Her new school has a serious talent competition with a $25,000 cash prize, which would go a long way in L.A. Jenna’s got plenty of talent—she didn’t almost win America’s Newest Sensation for nothing. But it’ll take everything she’s got to bring down the music nerd with a stick up his butt…no matter how cute he is in those glasses.
Miles Cleveland needs to win that talent contest. When some hot girl stole his audition spot on America’s Newest Sensation, his chance to study music flounced off to New York with her. Now, not only can he win enough money to pay for his education, he can get revenge on that very same girl. He can’t start to question his plan, though…no matter how deep Jenna buries into his heart.

How fun is this? A look at my writer desk. Thanks, BookHounds, for the opportunity to share!
So from all the junk on my desk, you can probably guess I’m not the sleek and sophisticated type. We should probably just get straight right now that I’m a total teenager in my brain. In fact, a few of the things I have here are from my teenage years, one literally!
I have had the pink clock you see on my wall since I was like fifteen. I had white wallpaper with little pink hearts all over it like polka-dots, with one wall pink and white striped. I thought that was pretty much the coolest thing ever. Of course, the walls were covered with pictures of bands and solo artists I loved that I had cut out of magazines. I represent a few of those now on my tennis ball corkboard, but I need to add more!
Also from my teenage years is Lloyd Dobbler. He’s the guy holding up the “jam box” a la the iconic scene from Say Anything. I’ve not had him since I was a teenager, but he represents that era in my life. Also representing my teen years are my Rubik’s Cube and the bottle of black cherry New York Seltzer. I used to love that stuff when I was young, but it disappeared from store shelves in Nashville forever ago. So when I was in L.A. last year, I saw a bottle at the airport and snagged it! So yes, I have a bottle on my desk from last year. #sentimental
Not sure how easy it is to spot, but I have two bars of Lindt chocolate. One is 70% cocoa and one is 78%. Oddly, I can tell the difference. I prefer it with almonds, but I’m not complaining.
Around my lamp is my assortment of Essie nail polish colors. Is Essie better than other brands? I really don’t know. I feel like it is. I’m probably just suckered into the marketing.
Eos lip balm. I’m not exaggerating when I say I keep a sphere of this in like ten different locations around my house and in my purse. I have a lip balm problem.
Assorted Nashville paraphernalia. I’m from Nashville and am sort of proud of my hometown. That being said, I would rather clean toilets than go downtown these days on a weekend. It is madness down there. Like seriously! They block off the streets and there are a ton of bachelorette parties and people be crazy! But we have little pockets of town that are cool and trendy, and I’m absolutely fine to go to those areas and get a yummy dinner any night of the week.
My “Please do not annoy the writer, she may put you in a book and kill you.” mug. I snagged this at the dirty Santa book exchange my local writers’ group, the Music City Romance Writers, had last December. I also got a shower board for jotting down ideas and three Maya Banks books. I pretty much cleaned up.
Gifts! The Writer’s Block was a gift from one of my teen advisors. I have two fourteen-year-old girlfriends who are invaluable to me and my writing. I text them constantly for help. The You Got This paperweight was from a very sweet writer friend who came to my first signing at Barnes and Noble…she brought me that along with a box of Godiva chocolates. It was so precious to me! And finally, the red heart was a gift from my writers group for making my first sale. *Sniff sniff* These gestures mean so much!
I guess that covers it. This was super fun! Thank you for letting me play! Happy reading, y’all!
