Mags O'Brien lives on the alcohol-soaked, drug-enhanced concert circuit, managing out-of-control rocker Julian MacAvoy. She helps him spread his musical gospel to his adoring followers, despite the fast-spinning turnstile on his bedroom door, and the broken hearts he leaves in his wake.

Mags believes she’s immune to Julian’s magnetic personality but when controversy hits the tour, she finds herself in danger of falling at his feet, slave to his appetites and her own desire and need.

Julian refuses to be tamed, but the pressure of the ravenous crowds clamps tighter and tighter around him. His chaotic world starts to crumble when he realizes his motivation to continue touring comes from an unobtainable woman. Can he force her to make the agonizing choice between himself and her estranged husband?

An erotic and candid look at life on the road.

At some point or another, most people have lusted after someone they know, perhaps a co-worker, or even the boss; and Mags is no different. The trials and stresses of being on tour, have stretched her marriage to breaking point. Her husband has become more of an annoying friend than lover, and her annoyingly charming boss is getting her hotter by the day.

I loved Mags - all things considered, she is an incredibly normal woman in an unreal world fueled by booze, drugs, and overinflated ego's. She's struggling to keep herself sane, while pandering to the every need of her crew and her 'star' boss Jules.

Jules is a great leading man. He's cheeky and funny with just the right amount of sarcastic flair - although he does have a tendency to sulk, but he's sexy and alluring, and knows that Mags has the hots for him.

A great cast of characters to both love and hate, Private Love in a Public Place has been expertly written, drawing the reader in right from the start. The life of this on-tour band was both descriptive and entertaining, perhaps a little predictable in parts, but it was definitely shaken up with some really unexpected twists and turns - and lets not forget the hot sex! While there are some really tender and heartfelt moments of aww, there is a decent amount of hot blooded, I-want-you-right-now sex :)

Right out of left field, the author spun this story on its head and had me gasping with shock and excitement. I was not expecting that at all, a great turn of unexpected events :)

Toni Kenyon has written a really great story around a life we usually only hear about through trashy magazine articles using mysterious sources and telescopic photo lenses. But instead of just your typical hype, the author has brought to life the real story behind the scenes; she has made her celebrities human, fallible, and extremely likeable - warts and all.

A thoroughly entertaining and pleasurable 4 star read.

memorable line...
"He whispered pacifying words to me through my hair; they ran like warm treacle down the long strands, taking eventual residence in the small caves of my ears."

"Have you ever lusted after a famous musician? Or maybe you've fantasized about being 'the one' to be plucked from the audience. What really happens when the lights go down?

With a fast-spinning turnstile on his bedroom door, Julian MacAvoy spreads his musical gospel to his adoring followers, leaving broken hearts in his wake. What did happen between Julian, Barbie and Young Elvis that one night after the gig?
THE FAN is a short explicit romp - written for those of you who desperately need to know what happened in that bathroom - or for anyone else who has lusted after a famous musician!"

Having faked his own death to escape his out-of-control lifestyle, Rocker Julian MacAvoy and his beloved Mags are lying low in the Far North of New Zealand.
Enjoying their newfound anonymity, Julian has to come to terms with the prospect of discovery when Mags turns their new life upside down by announcing that she's pregnant.
Will this reformed bad-boy be forced to return to his rock star roots?
Romantic, erotic and awash in the beauty of the Far North of New Zealand, PUBLIC LOVE IN A PRIVATE PLACE captures the essence of the rock star's dilemma: The Band or The Girl.

Toni Kenyon lives in Auckland with her husband (and their two dogs) the goldfish are just squatting! She writes romance by day, sings in a band by night and in her spare (yeah, right) time she wrangles difficult heroes into line, so they can star in her next novel. Toni also loves the garden and has a special place in her heart for her fruit trees and her veggie patch. A keen amateur photographer, Toni posts “Mood of the Suburbs” shots across most of her social media profiles. She loves to hear from like-minded people, so pop on over and say 'Hi' any time.
