Release Date: November 24, 2015

Amelia London is America's sweetheart. Noah Sloan is America's bad boy. Both are former child stars and once were lovers. When they are cast as the leads in the upcoming erotic suspense blockbuster—Sinners Like Us—they are forced to come to terms with the issues that tore them apart to begin with.

As the whole world watches, can they keep their secrets hidden? After all, everybody is a sinner…

As per the title, the story revolves around two childstars who are now grown up to be quite a disappointment. Amelia London is trying to maintain her good girl image, while Noah Sloan is maintaining a bad boy image. Both of them used to be each other first love. Now they can't even stand to see each other eye to eye, so how the fuck are they going survive in the same movie. 

But the main event is not whether are they gonna bang each other again. There is a whole other kind of craziness happening in the background that lead to their break up in the first place. I'm bracing myself for more of JJ's kind of bizarreness coming up. Can't fucking wait.

"How do I look at you, let alone love you, when I can't even love myself?"

What I like about Childstar is the short and straight to the point way J. J. McAvoy told the story. Non of the draggy scene and filler plot. Even though the story is short, I felt the connection between the main characters. They both have fireworks when they just look at each other. 

As the story progress, we get a healthy dose of love between Amelia and Noah. Is great to see them together and posing an united front. Even with Noah's little hiccup with the law, it just make them stronger than ever. The only problem I have is I felt sometimes they gone to far while in front of the rolling cameras. I can accept making out and dry humping, but more than that? Hmm... I think there are things that are better reserve for behind close door.

I'm anxious to see more about what would happened after Amelia knew of the secret that Noah had been hiding. A whole load of clusterfucks await the reader to uncover. Brace yourself for a suspenseful right filled with bullets and blood. 

In the end, Noah might just need to make a deal with the devil or sell his fucking soul in order to keep Amelia safe forever.

Honorable mentioned for the best cameo ever would be non other than The Callahans. Is great to see Liam and Melody Callahan again, plotting others death, while playing with their son and eating steak. 

For those who have not meet the Callahan from Ruthless People trilogy, you don't know what you are missing, especially if you into the whole violence crime and suspenseful plot and not afraid of rooting for the bad guys.

J. J. McAvoy first started working on Ruthless People during a Morality and Ethics lecture her freshman year of college. X number of years later, she is an insomniac who has changed her major three times, and is a master in the art of procrastination. If you ask her why she began writing, she will simply tell you “They wanted to get their story out.”

She is currently working on her next novel . . . so please bug her on Twitter @JJMcAvoy
