Tobias "Toby" Holmes was destined for NBA stardom. But when an SUV crashed into his car during his rookie year, his dreams of playing pro-basketball, along with his spine, were shattered.

And when the singing sensation he discovered is pegged to star in a new reality TV show, Toby finally sees light at the end of what has been a very dark tunnel.

However, when Sienna and Toby find themselves working together, feelings arise that has them both rethinking their friendship.

The car accident ended NBA basketball player Toby Holmes¿ career, but he did not mope over what could have been instead since his forced sports retirement he became an entertainment manager concentrating on music talent. He becomes euphoric when Marshall Kellerman of Over the Edge Productions offers his client Aria Jordon a fabulous deal that will make her famous. To help, Toby hires a management company to help promote his star.-------------- His childhood friend Sienna Culpepper is put in charge of the publicity. She assumes Aria and Toby are seeing each other and becomes jealous because she is attracted to him like always. Meanwhile Aria also wants Toby, but turns to his long time rival hoping to generate jealousy. On the other hand Toby heeding his older brother¿s warning is careful with his relationship with Aria and begins to fall in love with Sienna. Chaos becomes the norm for this foursome.------------------ RELEASE ME is an enjoyable contemporary romance starring likable lead characters who forge a triangle of sorts that converts into a rectangle. Although resolution could have occurred faster, fans will relish this fine tale as Toby falls in love with Sienna, who has loved him since they were children, but assumes he will never reciprocate and besides he has Aria. Farrah Rochon entertains with an entertainment romance.------------- Harriet Klausner

Reading the stories of the Holmes brothers is great entertainment. I didn't like this story as much as the other two, but it was still a good read.

I enjoy reading a series when the writer keeps you informed on the other characters in the books I am happy the way things turned out for Toby and Sienna. Toby really didn't have room to talk about his brother's love life when he was a little slow on the uptake of his own. Bonus with Ivanna and Johnathan, disappointed that they didn't have a story of their own. I read a lot of romance, first time with Ms Rochon, things do tend to get a little repetitive, but I enjoy the different writing styles, venus and characters.
