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
Julie Johnson AGAIN shows me why I fall so hard, so fast, so unhealthily in love with her words.
Did all of those things just happen? Did I just crawl into a hole with that incredible ending?!
Yes. I did.
You meet Ryder the artist. Ryder the playboy. Ryder the bad boy. Ryder the lover. Ryder. Ryder. Ryder. Than there is Felicity a girl who is running from a dark child hood past. Trying to make it on her own. Her own way. The only way. Felicity was strong, yet gentle. Broken yet fixed. Felicity ma ...more
"I want to make things with her-- music she won't sing, promises I can't keep, love that won't last. I want to know her. To unravel her secrets, layer by layer. To strip her bare."
In the first installment of her next showstopping duet, Julie Johnson spins her thread and weaves together a whirlwind romance novel filled with whiskey, drugs, and broken hearts. It's a classic country song come to life about two souls that fell, burned bright, and were snuffed out by misunderstandings and questionabl ...more
Oh fuck. Didn't expected this. I HATE cliffhangers. The writing was so much better from a previous book of hers I read before. I read it in one breath. So i'll have to wait. But it's a dirty play to divide this book in two. At least we have less then a month to wait...
5 Can't Wait for the Sequel Stars
Holy cow did I devour Faded, and I can't wait for Unfaded to release next month! I love Julie Johnson and expect her books to provide the perfect mix of drama and heart with some steam thrown in. Boy does Faded deliver! The story is told in duel POV, and we get to know both Felicity (a song writer intending to avoid the limelight that's literally just gotten off the bus in Nashville) and Ryder (singer, songwriter, and guitar player) quickly. I was attached to bot ...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
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
Fast-paced and entertaining rock star themed storyline. A little bit on the far-fetched realm, but still a solid and fun-to-read romance. The lyrics to the music are really good and the history related to Felicity's grandmother was an added plus. I liked both of these worn and torn characters who had faced some bad times in both their short lives. Beware - major cliffy ahead. Luckily, it's only a few more days until the release of the second book in this duet, "Unfaded" to find out if the relati ...more
