In this sizzling debut, J. J. Salem relentlessly lays bare the private behavior of public people in the fast-paced media spotlight. From Manhattan to the Hamptons, from Miami to Hollywood, the settings are larger than life, but the intimate realities hit straight to the heart.

Every listener will find some part of herself in the guilt, passions, fears, and longings of these dynamic women. Ambition and talent, sex, and seduction - their lives are full of it all - but they are on a crash course with destiny during one explosive summer.

Liza: She slays rival media commentators with her firebrand feminist spin, enjoying a lucrative career as the millennium's new Naomi Wolf. Yet she's falling into all the old traps she cautions other women to avoid.

Kellyanne: She waits tables and plays mistress to a rich developer, holding out for her big break as an actress. But why are the phenomenal looks that were supposed to take her all the way leading her to the edge of disaster?

Billie: She rocks the indie music scene with her nose pressed against the glass, hoping for a shot at real success in a cutthroat industry. Sex is candy, drugs are fuel, people are disposable, and looking out for number one is the only way she knows how to live.

Tan Lines is an addictive story that exposes the illusions of glamour, the dark side of success, and the elusiveness of love. Thrill by thrill and sin by sin, it's told with savvy insight and searing prose. Listen to it with sunscreen. Download and start listening now!

    " Stop everything your doing and go get this book! This is the must read book of the summer!!!! I read this entire book in two days - literally could NOT put it down! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim Moore | 2/12/2014

    " Great book! I couldn't put it down! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine Gomez | 2/2/2014

    " Pure and utter ridiculous scandal and drama! Really contributed nothing to the betterment of my brain, but it was pure emjoyment. Sometimes you just need that! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shay Noble | 1/23/2014

    " The story is told through three main characters; Liza (a sucessful and fearless feminist), Kellyanne (an aspiring actress) and Billie (a rock b*tch with a drug issue). I found the story compelling and the character's endearing - they provoked emotional reactions in me to the major events in their lives...there have been very few books that have able to reach out to me as a reader like that and it was wonderful to be suckered into the story in such a way. I fell in love with this book. It was a real page-turner and if you're looking for a great chick-lit book with plenty of sex, drama and surprises I'd definitely recommend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gemma Holbrook | 1/21/2014

    " Fab light-hearted read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Crystal | 1/16/2014

    " This book was overwhelming for me at times. Blame it on my Midwestern upbringing if you must. The characters led very shallow lives and only seemed to be interested in things that offered instant gratification. There was enough foul language and sex to make sailors blush. What bothered me about it all was that it seemed to demean each of the three main female characters instead of empower them. They seemed to have no respect for others, each other, or themselves. I think the author did an excellent job in make the characters very real...they just weren't people that I'd want to know. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Molly | 12/13/2013

    " I thought this would be a fun, sexy, little romance to bring some cheer to bring an end to winter blahs....it was just a porn. It started off with a woman doing a 19 yr old who was watching porn while doing the act on his computer and the woman then going across the hall to do the guys in there. Not what I expected. Did not finish. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Lea | 12/11/2013

    " This was a trashy beach novel at it's best. I can't wait for the follow up. I read the review in USA Today's beach reads section and it didn't dissapoint. It was almost embarrassingly trashy... almost. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Allison | 11/27/2013

    " A very raunchy tale of three girls. I did not like the way the author chose to end the book and found one of the characters completely meaningless. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jo | 11/6/2013

    " Definitely a pool or beach book. Actually picked it up at the "library" shelf at the pool. Not my favorite genre but it is a light read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shabnam | 10/20/2013

    " Horrible beginning, horrible ending, but I must admit (not proudly), pretty enjoyable reading in between. All in all, a fluffy, trashy read, but I'm sure there's tons more out there with a better story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Zinzi Graham | 4/12/2013

    " I shamefully enjoyed it but as nothing more than a distraction from the cold, miserable winter weather for a little while. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jodi | 3/16/2013

    " I f you like Jackie Collins, you'll LOVE this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather Smith | 2/28/2013

    " A great beach read. Very smutty and naughty! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Valerie | 11/4/2011

    " Great fast, summer read. Full of sex and drugs. Look forward to Bikini Wax! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shannon Coleman | 9/15/2011

    " This was easy reading and total trash, but I have a guilty pleasure for trashy novels. The ending seemed rushed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heidi | 8/16/2011

    " solid summer beach book. a little trashier than what i usually read but enjoyable. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lyndy Massoth | 5/4/2011

    " Not nearly as good as Jackie Collins. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 9/6/2010

    " I really enjoyed this book. The beginning too a little while to get going, but once it did it was really awesome. I loved the story and I loved how Salem wrapped it up at the end :) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ivy | 7/24/2010

    " Possibly the most misogynistic thing I've ever read. This book made me want to vomit. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 3/23/2010

    " Light beach read. College friends who come back together in the Hamptons. The intertwining of their lives and adventures. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trisha Hoskins | 7/29/2009

    " Great book. Sad ending. This book is a page turner. One of my favorites. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nickie | 5/29/2009

    " If you are into major celebrity drama and hard core drugs...this is the book for you. It was just not my thing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Connie | 3/7/2009

    " Perfect beach read. This author's style reminds me of a younger voiced Jackie Collins. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Heather | 2/16/2009

    " Terrible!! The book was terrible!! It took me 3 months to read. It started off slow and the book was rushed at the end. I would not read it...BAH! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gisela | 1/19/2009

    " This is a great beach read full of sex, drugs, and killer lines. The first line in the book is awesome. The book has a dark "Valley of the Dolls" feel to it. The author was inspired by Jackie Collins & Jacqueline Susann, and I can see that in his work. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Emma | 9/25/2008

    " Very trashy read, a la Jackie Collins, but good for an easy holiday read that you don't have to think about too much "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shelli | 9/24/2008

    " Silly beach read. Completely predictable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Helen | 8/19/2008

    " good beach read, seems like j.j. salem was over writing the ending was pretty lame & predictable. "
