I was never supposed to be famous. I was a lyricist, not a singer. Certainly not a star. Too bad none of that seemed to matter to a rock-god like Ryder Woods. He didnt just want my words he wanted everything. And he took it. My songs. My voice. My goddamned soul. Between those haunting bedroom eyes and that heart-stopping grin, I never stood a chance. I was pulled into his orbit like a rogue meteor passing a sun. The problem is, if you get too close to a starYoure bound to get burned. FADED is the first installment of a sexy, emotional duet about a jaded rock star and a starry-eyed songwriter. UNFADED, the second installment, will be released on May 2, 2018. Pre-order it now! Please note: due to sex, drugs, and rock & roll, this duet is recommended for readers ages 16 and up....

Faded (Faded Duet #1) Reviews
Review to come!
I thought it had a great start, but then it lost me. After 50%, I found myself skimming.
The switch in POVs did not work for me. Everything became predictable. Blah.
Reading is subjective. You may love it.
4.5 “Big Changes” Stars
I binged this book from start to finish without moving from my spot on the couch. And now I wait in eager anticipation for book two. Ms. Johnson wrote a bit of a grittier tale with two imperfect characters with very different outlooks on life but find a connection they never expected. It made my heart race, had me questioning everything and on the edge of my seat.
In Faded we find Felicity moving to Nashville to start over. She’s on her own and likes it that way. She’s no ...more
One of the most poignant stories Julie Johnson has ever written.
With Faded, she managed to ruin me (again).
She punched me in the gut, blew my sanity to pieces and wrecked my soul. Everything I was, it was simply fading, until all I could breathe were her words, until every molecule was filled with Ryder and Felicity, until eyes were brimming with tears and my blood was chanting her name, its pounding deafening my ears. It was a tangled web of music and heartache, and I cherished every minute of ...more
To think I was delaying reading this since the second book isn’t out yet. Good thing I didn’t order the second one yet because this one was not good. As much as I don’t want to be persuaded by raving reviews, I can’t help but unconsciously believe all the great ratings. Well, I don’t know if I read the same book as the rest but I hated this one. I honestly wanted to DNF this at 10% when the ridiculous insta-love scene happened. With just one glance at the h, he’s suddenly a changed man and not a ...more
Faded Duet by Julie Johnson
Book 1: Faded
Book 2: Unfaded
“Whether we’re on stage singing or a thousand miles apart… we’ll always have the music.”
I adore this authors words, no matter the subject she never fails to captivate me and this duet was no different. From start to finish of both books, I couldn’t put them down. I was totally engrossed; my emotions were all over the place and my connection to these characters was intense. I lived and breathed their story and while you won’t ...more
I couldn't wait to DEVOUR more words from Julie Johnson. She NEVER ceases to amaze me. Faded hooked me completely from page one. Ryder and Felicity were complex characters that I couldn't get enough of!! I'm looking forward to learning even more about them in Unfaded.
The reason why I rated it 4.5 stars instead of 5 was because of the last few chapters of the book. It has a completely different feel than the rest of the book and it didn't help that Ryder REALLY pissed me off.
I'm SO t ...more
Phew. I inhaled this book. I finished it in one sitting. I was addicted and had to know what happened. I cannot wait for the next one!
This is the story of Felicity, a young songwriter from the middle of nowhere moving to Nashville to chase her songwriting dreams, but also to run away from....something. We never really find out the full story of what she is running away from, but it is clear that she had a less than perfect childhood and wants a chance to start over. Enter Ryder. A sexy ...more
