Blog Tour: Starlight


So, I fly my rockin' curves off to LA for the big Peaches Monroe (that's me) underwear shoot.

I'm nursing a broken heart from you-know-who, when along comes Keith Raven. Sexy, tanned, and nearly naked. He's my new co-model, and let me tell you, Keith is the full package with a big package (wink, wink).

My new bestie Mitchell warns me that all male models are walking disasters, but I think Keith's different. He meditates, for example. And, unlike some people, he doesn't toy with my affection.

Staying at Keith's apartment in LA and swimming in his pool is heavenly, not to mention the more intimate details of our Rebound Arrangement. What's a Rebound Arrangement, you ask? It's a fixed-length romance and a great way to turn your world upside-down.

Meanwhile, Dalton Deangelo is trying to redeem himself and win me back. He sucks at redemption, but he is charming.

Somebody please stop me, because if I keep slamming my heart like this, it's going to break.

Book #1, STARDUST will be ON SALE for 99 cents during the blog tour, and is available now at:
Barnes & Noble


Q. Wasn't the first book originally called “We are Made of Stardust?” Why did you change it?
A. I love weird titles, but it was too weird, even for me. Even I kept mistyping the thing, so I knew readers were having trouble with that mouthful.

Q. Where did you get the idea for this series?
A. Part of the inspiration is from that great romantic comedy movie, Notting Hill. Also, about a year ago, I wrote a book about a smart mouth waitress, and people loved the character so much. It was a YA book, and I had this weird psychic feeling (ha ha) that people might like a sassy character like that in an adult book, along with lots of sex and romance and great banter. I knew that I'd love to read a book like that, so I figured it would be fun to write, and it is!

Q. How many Peaches Monroe books will there be?
A. After Book 1 came out, I asked my readers how much Peaches they wanted. Everyone said they loved Peaches, wanted the experience to never end, and wanted many, many books. I don't usually write long series, so I decided to make it 4 books, total. That's a quadrilogy. Each one is a full-length novel with its own storyline, and the books are inter-linked.

Q. When people find out you write erotic romance, do they treat you like a freak?
A. Yes, but I am a freak, so that's okay.

Q. What's the hardest part of writing?
A. Usually I say it's the words. But today I'll be serious and give you a serious answer: fear. Always the fear. I'll be typing a sentence and imagine a specific person reading that sentence, and it stops me cold. It's a huge mind game to get over that stage fright. Some authors drink. I've tried a beverage or two, and it doesn't help at all, so I just have to stare down the blank page and the fear, totally sober, like a good role model. (You're welcome!)

Kath's thoughts:  We all know Peaches Monroe for her ever so charming humor, right? But there’s more into it in this story. What I mean is Peaches isn't all about her jokes coming out from her mouth that can’t be shushed. Anyways… wow! Peaches did it again. 

Two boys fighting over her! And when I say boys it comes with the description of H-O-T. One is a famous vampire actor and the other is a model, an underwear model. Yes, Peaches doesn't deserve to be used as a researcher for Dalton’s next project but she doesn't deserve the rebound set-up with Keith, either. 

But I liked how Peaches enjoyed herself in Los Angeles even with a broken heart. She ignored it and modeled underwear and flaunted her ‘peaches’ and that’s how she met the ever so beautifully sculpted Keith Raven. Okay… I admit the let’s-be-rebound-buddies of her and Keith is quite awesome but sometimes you can’t help it when shit got real and you’ll find yourself getting jealous over the ex-girlfriend. 

I think Peaches deserves more than just being a rebound and so is Keith because just like peaches said I didn't want to be with Dalton, but I didn't want to be with anyone who wasn't Dalton, either. So… Team Dalton or Team Keith? Well I say Team Peaches all the way! Oh! And let’s not forget Adrian Storm the one that’s left in Beaverdale, Washington. 

Too many guys for Peaches! Which one would she choose? Well it’s a four book series so I really can’t wait for third and fourth book. And about this book, I liked it. I understood more of Peaches overcoming in life and I liked that there’s some flashback from her past. So like I said in the beginning there’s more to the story! Find out what’s Peaches secret. And I tell you the ending is oh so… Shocking? Naaahhh… Just Epically Peaches ;)

Emma's Thoughts: I was given an ARC of Starlight in return for an honest review as part of the blog tour.
5 Hearts!!!

Oh my Mimi Strong does it again.... Starlight is a brilliant book and I loved it!

First of all let me say that you need to read Stardust first before this one otherwise you will not have a clue as to what is going on.

I’m going to keep this review as spoiler free as I can which maybe a tad tricky but here goes..... Peaches – who wouldn't love her, she is amazing and what comes out of her mouth is pure gold, being a curvy girl myself I can relate to a lot of things in this book but she doesn't half make me chuckle :) then we have Dalton, man did he make me swoon in Stardust, he’s hot and it all went a bit wrong so as u can imagine I was expecting them to get back together and everything would eventually be rosy but no Mimi is very clever and we meet Keith..... who happens to be extremely hot and the perfect man – every woman should have one and I’m hoping we get to see more of Keith in book 3 (hint hint) and then there’s Adrian, not sure what to make of him as yet and am gonna keep my options open on him, I reckon he might appear more in book 3. So all in all Peaches has a very interesting life... I wanna see her photo shoot pictures and advert, it all seems that real to me.

So, all I’m going to say is read it, you won’t regret it and a huge congratulations to Mimi on Starlight and can’t wait for book 3, just don’t make us wait too long, lol.
