5 Feathers

Laced with secrects and sin, The Monday Girl by Julie Johnson piques your interest from the first line…

“To those who would love me – I offer you a warning. Don’t get too close. You won’t survive.”

The City of Angels is a rough town to even the prettiest of faces and Kat Firestone is no exception. Hungover from the night before she hopes and prays that she makes it to her audition, an adution she doesn’t even want to be at but was forced to go by her mother. Plus she’s broke and desperately needs the money. As you might have guessed… the audition didn’t go as planned but that doesn’t mean fate didn’t step in and work it’s magic for her in other ways. And when I say fate I mean a devestatingly handsome man named Wyatt Hastings who could change everything for Kat…

“I arch a brow. ‘You’re going to help my career?’ 

‘No.’ His eyes gleam. ‘I’m going to change your life.”

The Monday Girl was everything and nothing like other Julie Johnson novels we have read in the past. It held all the passion, drama, and witty humor we have come to love, but this novel… WOW… this novel was all of that times ten. Julie Johnson held nothing back as she ignited the tip and dropped the match. The characters are kind, flawed, selfish, hilarous, and self-destructing. In a word they are real, so real in fact I related to them, especially Kat, on a personal level and that’s what makes this story so intersting. It’s about a girl who hides in the shadows of self-doubt and destruction, but is truely a selfless person who thinks of others before herself. And the cliffhanger… well let’s just say prepare yourself. It’s a heart stopper. But DO NOT let that scare you. I truely believe for the way this story is being told the cliffhanger was the only way to go. It leaves you both satisfied becasue it was such a freaking amazing book and deserves high praise for the unbelievably talented author who wrote it, but at the same time leaves you wanting more becasue OMG I NEED ANSWERS! LOL but serisouly, Febuary 1st is tomorrow right?

Julie Johnson’s talent as an author shines bright around all the shadows this novel holds, and showcases her beautifully written words that read like poetry. It’s without a doubt the best book she has written thus far…and the sexist! *fans self* It will leave you giddy and swooning but it will also make you want to throw your kindle across the room out of frustration, and lets be honest, only the best novels get that reaction out of readers!

Katharine Firestone is a bit of a mess.

Between an acting career that’s never quite made lift-off to stardom, a pathetic love life of online-dating-app losers, and a maxed-out balance on every one of her credit cards, things can’t get much worse. So, when she’s plucked from relative obscurity to land a lead role in Hollywood’s next big blockbuster, Kat is sure she’s finally on the right track.

Until she meets her co-star, Grayson Dunn… and all her plans are completely derailed.

Grayson is everything you’d expect the hottest actor alive to be — charming, disarming, and cocky as hell. As their characters slowly spiral into love on screen, Kat struggles to keep herself from falling for real. She knows handing Grayson her heart and expecting him not to break it would be the biggest mistake of her life. Yet the deeper she’s immersed in his glamorous world, the more blurred the boundaries between scripted affection and sincere passion become… and the harder it is to deny that their on-camera chemistry has crescendoed into a behind-the-scenes love affair…

What happens when you fall for someone who’s guaranteed to shatter you into pieces? Do you walk away? Or do you let him break you because, even broken, there’s simply no way you can’t stay?

THE MONDAY GIRL is a messy contemporary romance about a mixed up girl who falls for the wrong boy. It is the first part of a duet. The second installment, THE SOMEDAY GIRL, will be released a few weeks later, in early 2017. Each installment is approximately 95,000 words. Recommended for readers ages 17+ due to strong language, sexual situations, drug use, and other mature elements.
