Falling in love with your best friend isn’t always a great idea, especially when he’s Noah
Lockton - the sexiest, most famous new talent on the planet. When 21-year-old small-
town photographer Chloe Campbell is offered the chance of a lifetime – to join her
celebrity childhood friend Noah on tour as an exclusive blogger for a New York magazine
– she’s certain both have put what happened four years ago behind them. But his eyes
still burn; his voice is still a jackhammer to her heartstrings; all his songs are about her.
Is it possible that that night still haunts them both?

The music industry is a machine, spinning hype and rumors as much as his records. It’s
not just Noah’s girlfriends who’ve got it in for Chloe (there’s no stopping the Twitter-
obsessed, cat-loving pop-star Courtney Lentini for starters). Pretty soon, the jealousy
and media frenzy surrounding these so-called-friends takes a life-changing turn and it
seems making love means making enemies at every turn. When tragedy threatens to
pull the final curtain on their relationship, both Chloe and Noah must make a choice.

As much as this world leaves them starstruck, is living their dream really worth living
without each other?

A story of lifelong friendships, love and hope, set in a world of celebrity, fame and social
media gone very, very wrong.

Author Bio

all over the world since leaving England at age 21, including NYC, Sydney, Bali, South
America and Dubai. Right now she’s scribbling the second book in the HotFlush series
in Vietnam, and will soon be in Vancouver if any hot Canadian men want to make her a
cup of tea?

Lola Salt, called The Extraordinary Life of Lara Craft (not Croft) which should raise a
giggle or two... think Bridget Jones if Jackie Collins had written it!

Excerpt:
Let me guess. When you say the name Noah Lockton, you see him standing with one
of a hundred guitars around his neck, glistening with sweat in the glare of the stage
lights.

You see him grinning, maybe on a pap shot, maybe snapped on a red carpet,
smiling at you from the middle of a magazine. You see him in the spotlight; hot in
more ways than one, right?

You see shouting headlines, hear the shrieks of infatuated fans, visualize
the vacuous presenters buffing up his ego on all those TV channels and him batting
away compliments like they're bees. You see bulbs flashing, neon flickering,
videos playing on loop everywhere. They're in the gym, on the seatback screens of
airplanes; in your Facebook sidebar when you're messaging your friends.

You hear his music, obviously. How could you not? It's everywhere. His
voice is everywhere. You know the stats. Noah Lockton. Twenty-three. Five-foot-
eleven, messy brown curls and steel-gray eyes. Pisces. You think you know him, this
superstar, guitar-playing rock star.

But there are some things you don't know about Noah Lockton.

You don't know how proud he was that time, to have made me a cake out of
Lego, mud and toothpaste. How when he was eight, he sat up in the tree house for
three whole days after Prairie died. I was freaking out that if the dog fell down from
heaven no one else would be as close to the sky to catch him. Noah just didn't want
anyone else to see him cry. So we sat up there together, neither of us saying a word.

Just holding hands.

You don't know how crazy he made me, teaching me guitar till my fingers
bled. How we perfected the art of burping the entire first Britney Spears single
together after four cans of Diet Coke and convinced a radio station to put us on air.

You don't know how his arms felt wrapped around me when my world came
crashing down; how I clung to the feeling of him inside me, filling me up; bringing
me back to life again when all I could feel otherwise was numb.

You don't know how we avoid the subject now.

When we were kids, his dad said his eyes were so shiny in all my photos
because of all the stars inside them.

Noah was always going to shine.

He was always going to be mine.

But sometimes even I forget the way things were before he was famous.
