S.M. Shade introduces a brand new series of Rock Star romances with a twist

See what our review team is saying about Duplicity

Gah... this book was about as epic as rock star romances get! I'm so frustrated right now though because I wasn't ready for it to end, I need S.M. Shade to get busy on book two! Literally frothing at the mouth for more. Kinley and Holt get off to a rocky start but the chemistry and sweet romance that blossoms is swoonworthy. You expect the drama and angst but you can't prepare yourself for this one. Buckle up buttercup, it's about to get bumpy. The title is so perfectly fitting its unreal. Highly recommend this one.


I so did not see that ending coming!!!!! Great story. Kinley is the beautiful young woman that runs a successful hotel resort. Holt is the sexy rock star needing a place to lay low. That’s all I’m saying. The ending of this book was brilliant. Such a great cliffhanger.


Let me start by saying, this is my favourite SM Shade book to date - and I have read everything this amazing lady has written.Holt is oh wow! Like seriously! An arrogant alpha in the beginning but you see him soften with Kinley. Kinley is strong and independent, taking over her father's business and striving to keep it going the way her father would want.This book isn't your typical rock star book and certainly isn't what I thought it would turn out to be. The storyline is amazing and had me hooked from the beginning..And the end I definitely didn't see coming!! I need more!!Cannot wait for book 2!!t


The Title makes complete sense now and I was not expecting it! It's totally one of them endings where you wanna cuss and scream at said author because she just wiped the floor with your expectations. Trust me, I tried to think what could happen but nothing made sense until, well, the end. Kinsley is a successful, strong and independent woman. Holt is your typical bad boy with the attitude to match. You never expect to like him as much as you do, but it's fairly easy when he's behind closed doors. A fab read by this devious author. I am cursing because of the end because I really need book 2 like now!


Will Marcus/Holt be the client Kinley’s hotel needs, or will he be exactly what Kinley needs? These two characters were so amazing together, they clashed at first, but then they came together in such a way you could feel the heat coming off the pages. I was truly rooting for Holt and Kinley, even as I was trying to figure out Holt’s backstory. Both characters have so much going on that you knew something was going to happen. I can’t wait for the sequel to this book to come out. It really can’t get here soon enough.
