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....

Review to come!
First person, Dual-POV, First book in Faded Duet.
Don't say I didn't warn you: this story isn't about getting what I wanted. Because I never wanted Ryder Woods. I needed him.
Ugh. Julie Johnson, this is twice now you've ripped out my heart and left it on the floor bleeding and I just DON'T know what to do with you.
(Other than worship you all the live long day)
Uncharted was one thing. Thanks again for that by the way. This, however, was in a league all its own.
Ryder and Felicity, 22 (him) and 18 ...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
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
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
5 Move the Stars CROWNS
Angst and Julie Johnson will now and forevermore be synonymous. Seriously, my heart cannot take it, and yet I always seem to go back for more. Why? Because her prose is beautiful, her stories rich with emotion, and I never fail to get wrapped in her words and her characters.
Her heroes ALWAYS kill me. I love and want to murder them at the same time, and they are sexy as heck. I can honestly say that there has not been one Julie Johnson hero who hasn’t won me over, and Ryde ...more
