Nineteen-year-old Gina Kelly is used to working hard for everything in life. Despite her challenges, Gina has dreams and one of them is to become an actor. One day when she sees an ad in Playbill for open auditions, she heads to New York where she surprisingly secures the lead role in a Broadway production. But little does she know that acting on Broadway is just the first step in what is about to become an adventurous new life.
The play is ready to end when Ginas theatre director introduces her to the manager of one of rocks biggest bands. He is desperate to find a backup singer before the band goes on tour and Gina is thrilled when he hires her. The chemistry between Gina and lead singer, Sebastian Roland, is instantaneous. Unfortunately, Sebastian is a married, pill-popping addict. As the group sets out on an adventure fueled by sex and drugs, Gina quickly falls in love with Sebastian. But when his drug use escalates, Gina is forced to make a decision with the power to change her future once again.
Tell Me You Want Me shares the tale of a young womans journey of self-discovery as she follows her dreams to New York, falls in love, and realizes that she is the only one in charge of her destiny.

Sex, drugs and rock-n-roll – that’s what makes Tell Me You Want Me so engaging. A young girl sets out to pursue her dream, but will it turn into her nightmare? Will she maintain her sense of self while trying to help the man she loves? Those are the questions asked and answered in Kris Embry’s debut novel. Not for the faint at heart, the language can get a bit graphic. But if you like to read about life as it really is, this is the book for you. I enjoyed the characters and the story line. I could see this actually happening to someone (and it probably has). Embry keeps the story moving and her main character, Gina, is someone you feel close to. This is a wonderful beginning to what I hope is a very successful writing career and I eagerly await Embry’s sequel.
This is my book review for Tell Me You Want Me by author Kris Embrey. I received a copy of the book for an honest review. The book contains, sex, with consent and dubious consent, date rape, tons of swearing, drinking, drugs and pill addiction. If any of these things are triggers then I would advise to read with caution. This whirlwind rock and roll romance is told in first person and supported by a cast of dynamic characters. This is a story of two people trying to make a relationship on the road in between the spotlight and the music, amidst drugs and rock and roll. The immediate attraction they shared and the rocky relationship between Sebastian and Gina was palpable. You watch as Gina loses herself, makes compromise after compromise as Sebastian's needy, damaged, persona over shadows her. Like most relationships of this caliber you see glimpses of the good person they can be and those are the strings you hold onto. Overall a good story.....see my full review on www.whoshereads.com goo.gl/nXGxuA
