Can their love survive the limelight?


With nothing but her dog, her guitar, and her cowboy boots, songwriter Riley Marion arrives in Los Angeles on the run from her abusive ex. A quiet job teaching music sounds perfect, but her low-key lifestyle is threatened when she reunites with a sexy old flame—now an up-and-coming celebrity who’s constantly dogged by paparazzi.

Charming and driven, Jack Lamont is a Hollywood actor on the rise to stardom. Ready to outgrow his playboy reputation, he’s happy to leave the hard partying to his entourage. Romantic entanglements? Jack’s not interested. At least, not until he gets tangled up with the one who got away—a smoking-hot woman whose memory has haunted him for the last ten years.

about Hollywood Honkytonk! 

"I thought that the author had a really relaxed writing style that flowed well. I read the book quite quickly and it held my attention the whole way through. I would definitely recommend this story – it has good characters that you want to be happy, fabulous descriptive writing so you can envisage what you are reading and a few steamy moments that will get you hot under the collar!!"
2 GIRLS WHO LOVE BOOKS

"There is a sweetness to it. The romance is there. The trope, friends to lovers is there, too. But what really sold me on the book were Riley and Jack. These are the types of characters that I love in a contemporary romance. I sighed and swooned throughout the book. The length that Jack went through for Riley one time. Oh my…best part of the book."
HARLIE'S BOOKS

"Mia Hopkins has a knack for drawing the reader into her stories with true-to-life characters, realistic world building and a tale that keeps you riveted till the very last page."
GOODREADS REVIEW, 5/5 STARS

"
I brought this with me on vacation and found it a perfect, fun beach book! I loved everything about this book! Jack and Riley's story is a true-to-life love story with crazy-good-sexy fun! Riley is a girl I would be great friends with and I'd love Jack and be totally jealous of her."
GOODREADS REVIEW, 5/5 STARS

"Mia’s descriptive writing isn’t the only reason why you should fall in love with her work. Her talent for writing characters that deal with everyday problems will melt your heart, most likely steam up your late night reading, and well, you just can’t help but root for them to fall in love."

Sex, drugs, and spicy tuna rolls?


Resilient and disciplined, tsunami survivor Eve Ono moves to California from Japan looking for a position as a sushi chef. When she’s suddenly fired from her restaurant job, desperation drives her to find work on a fishing boat despite her fears of the ocean. To make matters worse, she’s stuck in close quarters with her new captain—a man whose raw physicality drives her out of her mind with lust.

Free-spirited and roguish, Sam Lamont is a commercial fisherman aboard his own dive boat, the Bravado. When he makes a bad deal with a deadly loan shark who threatens to take his boat, Sam is in danger of losing both his business and his way of life. On top of that, he’s got to train his new deckhand—a beautiful hard-ass who just so happens to be sexy as hell.

A female sushi chef with mad knife skills. A deep-sea diver who's pissed off a Mexican drug cartel. Together, they're in trouble, and the only way out is down.

BOOK BRIEFS

"Deep Down is sassy,sweet and sexy. While Sam might charm readers into liking him, its Eve who steals the show. She's resilient, sexy and smart. Their chemistry is subtle at first but easily bursts into flames. The plot line is engaging, the writing is on point, overall a great book."

DELUGED WITH BOOKS CAFE

"This was a VERY sexy, exciting read. The heroine was feisty and relatable. The hero was a down on his luck sea urchin diver who needs her help when she walks into his life at JUST the right time.
These two had amazing chemistry and I love watching them growing, moving forward and conquering their fears in the book. Mia Hopkins is a new to author, I am certainly looking forward to reading what she writes next. And once again, YAY for diversity! This genre needs it desperately."

WORDS WE LIVE BY

"This was my first book by Mia and I have to say I was pretty happy with the style of writing the way the story flowed and how Mia managed to create great sexual chemistry / tension between the characters...Eve & Sam I enjoyed them, their development and I felt like they were really every day people which made them easier for me (personally) to relate to! I am definitely excited to check out more of Mia Hopkins work in the very near future."
