#Tour: Under The Spotlight by Angie Stanton



Under the Spotlight by Angie Stanton
Synopsis:
After an embarrassing stint on a reality-TV music competition years ago, Riley vowed never to sing again. Now she's behind the scenes, working at the prestigious Sound Sync recording studio, and life is looking up. But then Garrett Jamieson, the oldest brother in the famous Jamieson brothers band, crashes into her world.

Garrett has hit rock bottom, and he is desperate to reinvent himself. After calling in a few favors, he ends up working at Sound Sync to learn the ropes of record producing from the industry's best. And he can't believe his luck when he discovers that Riley has been keeping a secret—she is an amazing singer. By producing her album, he's sure to top the record charts again. But Garrett is forced to use every trick in his arsenal to persuade the sassy girl to record.

Riley refuses to sing—or even entertain the thought of it—and sparks fly as Garrett finally meets his match. But in the heat of the moment, one stolen kiss changes everything. Will Riley be the first person to finally rein Garrett in, or will Garrett succeed in getting Riley back under the spotlight?

Excerpt

“This is bull!” Riley dumped her coffee down the drain. Five minutes ago she’d have loved to share coffee with the famous Garrett Jamieson, but now, it was tainted.

Logan jumped out of the splash zone. “Whoa. They throw you out already? That’s got to be a record.”

“No! Garrett Jamieson just hijacked my job. He walked in, tossed around his gold records, and stole my chair. And my coffee.” She pulled a fresh mug from the cupboard and slammed it on the counter.

“That sucks.” Logan frowned.

She pulled out the coffeepot to find it empty and shoved it back on the burner. “Great. Doesn’t anyone know how to make a damn pot of coffee around here?”

She grabbed the empty coffeepot again and filled it with water. “Why can’t anything ever go my way?”

“Don’t be so down. I’m sure Garrett’s only here for a couple of hours and then he’ll disappear with some groupie.”

“I hope he catches something itchy.” Riley poured water in the pot, tossed a few scoops of coffee grounds into the filter, and pressed brew.

Tara walked in. “Are you guys talking about Garrett? Oh my God, Riley, I heard he’s in Studio B with you? You are so lucky.” Her eyes glittered-- she was star struck like a true fangirl.

“Yup. Real lucky.” Riley leaned against the counter, her arms crossed.

“Why aren’t you in there? I wouldn’t leave his side,” Tara said.

“He wants coffee,” she muttered.

“I wonder if he’s looking to put together a new band. Or maybe he’s going solo,” Tara speculated.

“I don’t think so. He’s not good enough,” Logan said.

“How can you say that? I’d buy his music.” Tara sat on the break table and reached for a hard candy from a basket.

“Trust me. He could never make it solo. He might have a pretty face, but his voice isn’t good enough to go it alone,” Logan said.

“Such a pity.” Tara sighed as if she somehow had a vested interest in the superstar.

Riley pulled out the coffeepot, filled up her mug, and then filled the other mug halfway. She splashed some creamer in hers, then filled Garrett’s the rest of the way, turning his black coffee a light shade of beige.

“Isn’t that a lot of cream?” Tara asked, popping a candy in her mouth.

“Just the way he likes it,” she said, smirking.

Riley carried the mugs back to the control room and handed the one that was more cream than coffee to Garrett.

“Here you go,” she whispered in his ear, irritated when she noticed how good his cologne smelled.

“Thanks.” His cocky smile would have brought Tara melting to the floor, but Riley found it patronizing. He took a sip and startled. He looked in the mug. “I said black.”

“You did? I’m sorry, I guess I didn’t catch that.” She smiled.

Garrett narrowed his eyes as she took a seat on the couch at the back of the room and sipped her steaming coffee.
