Steam: Steam Level 4
A sexy and sweet romance, set in Sydney and LA, On Our Own Terms is perfect for anyone who’s ever wondered what happens to boybands when they’re all grown up.
When English boyband 4G won the nation’s biggest television talent quest, Ned Smith shot to instant fame. He soon learnt it wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. Fifteen years on, he’s a successful songwriter in LA. But about to turn thirty, he finds himself struggling with regrets. When the smart and beautiful Harriet Jones movies in next door, can the lads convince him he deserves to find love? Or will the secrets and lies of the celebrity world continue to haunt him? Facing the harsh glare of the spotlight, Harriet runs scared, knowing her fragile heart can’t take any more heartbreak. Will they be able to overcome their fears? Can they find a way to make it work, on their own terms? And with a life hanging in the balance, will they get their chance?
Adelaide Hipwell’s debut novel, On Our Own Terms is a very steamy read, full of humour and heart. The book has an important message about using the power of celebrity for good and readers will delight in seeing that celebrities are real people too. And sometimes, just sometimes, they are lucky enough to get second chances.

Notes for romance readers: 75K words full length novel, 1st in intended series, can be read as standalone, HEA, no cheating, dual POV, epilogue, multiple sex scenes
