I’ve been had, dear readers. Big time. Here I was thinking that super-talented J.J. Salem—whose past bonkbusters were huge best-sellers in the UK (one of which I even reviewed here)—only had two books under his belt. Not so it seems. Words on the street is that Mr. Salem has been writing for quite some time using pen names such as Kylie Adams or Jona Jeffrey, just to name a few. Now Salem is back to deliver not one, not two but six glam-oriented digital novels this year, starting with REUNION GIRLS (March 31st from Saturn Girl Media), the tale of three exes who certainly have more than revenge on their minds for a certain little hottie.
"Dean Paul Lockhart is America’s fairytale prince. His wedding to a reality starlet is sending shockwaves through the celebrity gossip trade and rocking the worlds of three Brown University graduates who once dreamed college love would last forever . . . For Lara Ward, it’s a reason to go wild. By day, the class act and society fixture oversees a glitzy event planning firm. By night, she scorches the sheets with a fireball Latin polo player in an all-out bid to ease her heartache. For Babe Mancini, it’s a reason to get revenge. Snapping candids of the rich, famous and glamorous for glossy mag 212 has taught her the power of the right image. And she’s got some very personal photos of Dean Paul that could crash the TMZ server faster than you can say full-frontal. For Gabrielle Foster, it’s a reason to panic. Her reinvention as take-no-prisoners rap priestess Brown Sugar meant burying her privileged past. But now the ambition of rival rapper Queen B and the renewed media interest in Dean Paul’s romantic past just might blow her cover. When three ex-girlfriends reunite for the wedding of the century, old wounds trigger new problems in ways that change their lives forever in this funny, dramatic and poignant page-turner."
