Jaded and Faded Blog Tour

I'm Scarlett Ryan.

Yes, THAT Scarlett Ryan.

I live an extraordinary life: millionaire rock star, owner of exotic cars, pictures of me in every magazine, millions of fans, and a name that is recognized world wide. It's supposed to be my dream come true. But, my life IS a fantasy, and I want real. I want exciting. I want... NORMAL. So, I moved from California to Florida, hoping to obtain some normalcy. Instead I find...

Stephan Montgomery.

He's an arrogant jerk. Seriously, I hate him. I swear if he tells me one more blonde joke, I will punch him... again... Unfortunately I can't stop thinking about him, or his gorgeous green eyes. Trust me, I know that he's bad for me. If only my heart would listen.
I also find out that my parents have kept a LIFE CHANGING secret from me. I need to know the truth.

The harder I strive for normal, the stranger things seem to get.

My Review:
As you may have already guessed, Jaded tells the first part of 19-year old Scarlett's story - her attempt to live an almost normal life, despite being a popular rock star, living the high, if not always satisfying, life in California.  The life she had hoped she would be leading leaves her feeling empty and alone, and, in an attempt to get a different, more wholesome perspective, she jaunts off to Florida.  When she meets the irresistible Stephan, and learns that her folks have been less than honest about a major aspect of their lives together, she soon realises that things are going to keep moving farther and farther away from the normal she so desperately seeks.
This is a well-written and entertaining story, with enough twists and angst to keep the reader flipping the pages. One thing I always look for is good editing - it makes a story flow so much better!  Mercy and her editor have done a great job here, with only minor flaws, so the story moves at a good pace, and Mercy keeps you involved in Scarlett's predicaments as the plot develops into the edgy ending that primes you for Faded - the second part of the Rock Star trilogy.

Faded - Part 2 of The Rock Star Trilogy
I left Hope - the only place I've ever felt at home. So now what?  Where do I go from here?
When I left, I didn't just leave my home. I left my friends, my sisters, and Stephan...I just found them. I can't lose them now.
I know that I want to do MY music. I need to remember WHY I wanted to play music in the first place. And the only way to get that is by firing my dad, but that may be harder than I thought.
On top of everything, I now have cameras following me around everywhere. Even my own home isn't safe anymore.
I've come to realize that normal will never be an option for me.
