Product Description

Product Description

The rules are simple in the entertainment industry: Play the game, get burned!

Talented and hedonistic, British rock star Wolf Taylor is in rehab to garner publicity for the new album and doesn’t see why he shouldn’t have a little fun while taking one for the band. Love doesn’t figure in his long-term plans, so the last thing he banks on is developing feelings for a fellow patient, Luna Halliwell.

Falling for Wolf, Luna finds herself spun up in his hectic lifestyle and pressured by relentless media scrutiny. Wolf's friend, Lexie Hunter - a tabloid favourite for her bad behaviour as much as her fashion editorials – leads the merry motley crew, gleefully mentoring Luna in her struggle for perfection.

But when the press drop a bombshell about Wolf's past, Luna realises being half of a hot celebrity couple isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

Observational comedy with a romantic twist.

About the Author

I am a creator, the created, transient and fixed. I like playing with roles and directing my own theatre. Ilyria Moon is my pen name for the novels I write - there is another author with my birth name. I enjoyed writing since childhood and when I began songwriting in my teens - I played music since I was three years old - this love translated into lyrics. While I'm not writing, I work as a musician and voice coach, and appear on numerous international releases. Through my experiences in the music industry over the past sixteen years, I decided writing 'fiction' would be a healthy outlet for the odd - and, quite frankly, bizarre - scenarios I've been in, and the colourful characters I've encountered along the way.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sassy and slick... 12 Oct 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
At first glance, a book entitled 'Swallow' with a pouting girl emblazoned on the cover isn't the sort of book I would normally choose to read. However, the one thing that the e-book revolution has taught me is not to jump to hasty conclusions about any book. I was glad that I shed my inhibitions and dived head-first into this story - sex, drugs and rock n'roll all the way.

Whilst undoubtedly raunchy, this book is extremely slick, well written and explores most graphically the disfunctional and excessive existence of the wilder elements of the 'celebrity' and 'groupie' culture. The contemporary dialogue is excellent and keeps the story moving at an appropriate rate. I wondered several times whether the author, Ilyria Moon had indeed bought the 'tee-shirt' such is her apparent insight into the characters and lifestyles depicted in the story - but that's for other readers to judge or for Ilyria to kiss and tell, not for me to spoil.

I think this book is cracking value and well worth the time spent reading it...

4.0 out of 5 stars Loved It! 12 July 2011
By Davina
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was recommended by a friend and possibly not one I would have chosen. However, I really enjoyed following the lives of the characters and how their individual stories came together. The story gives the reader a taste of the rock & roll lifestyle although I did shout 'don't do it!' at my Kindle when Lunar was enticed into drugs. The story finished with a perfect lead into the next book .... so please HURRY UP and publish it as I need to know what happens next!

A rollercoaster ride around the seedy underbelly of the pop "industry". I enjoyed it very much and look forward to more.

5.0 out of 5 stars I really liked it. 1 Oct 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed this book and did not want to put it down and was disappointed when I had to, but I still managed to read it within 2 or 3 days. I could picture the characters in my head and it all played out like a movie. The dialogue and interactions were believable and it was as though they were real people. The character of Wolf was portrayed perfectly as the stereo-typical rock and roll bad boy.

I highly recommend this book. I will certainly be looking out for more from this author, especially a sequel to this particular story because I am dying to know what happens next as I have grown fond of these characters and the cliffhanger really gets you wanting to pick up the next book.
