Book Blurb:
After losing her mother in a tragic accident, Allison Banks takes on the sole responsibility of caring for her little sister, her young niece, and her disabled grandmother. When her long-term boyfriend walks out, offering little in the way of explanation, Allison is left totally confused and utterly heartbroken. To cope, the 24-year-old closes herself off to any serious relationships and dives into her work as a graduate student.

Needing the extra income, Allison takes a job for the hot, new, reality TV show, Superstardom. Captivated by the competition’s front-runner, the mysterious and sexy singer, Chris Knots, Allison dismisses her attraction as nothing more than a silly, school-girl crush. But, when the hunky performer reveals an interest of his own, Allison must work through her reservations and decide if there’s room in her life for something more.

Tour Schedule: some will have giveaways!

How Andrea K. Robbins Began Writing:
It’s interesting, actually, because I never, in my wildest dreams, thought of myself as a writer. I
wrote my fair share of essays in English classes, and I’ve written a few grant proposals for my
classroom, but writing an entire book, especially fiction, just hadn’t ever crossed my mind. I
don’t consider myself a creative person.

The idea to write first struck me while reading the Twilight series. Like so many people out
there, I devoured those books. The way Stephenie Meyers wrote and told a story seemed so
effortless that I found myself thinking, I could do this.

Inspiration hit one night while I was in bed, somewhere between that place where you’re asleep
yet you’re not. In my head, I watched as Chris Knots came to Allison’s classroom for the first
time. The next night I got out my laptop and started typing. From there, I couldn’t seem to stop.
I wrote every night for over a year. Drove my husband crazy!
