Newlywed author Shontae Nichols Burke is trying to adjust to her life in Hollywood as the wife of actor Devon Burke, one of the film industry’s brightest upcoming stars. She’s left her home and her friends and moved to Los Angeles.

They both have blossoming careers. She’s attending movie premieres and living a life she only dreamed of.

Unknown to Shontae, someone else also believes Devon Burke is the love of her life. When this disturbed woman insinuates herself into their lives, Shontae learns that all Hollywood drama isn’t scripted and finds herself in a fight for her marriage that’s worthy of the big screen.

Leaving her family and all she’s ever known behind her, Shontae Nichols Burke heads to Hollywood with her actor husband Devon Burke. She's living the dream many want and only few have. That is until someone else, Monica- a deranged woman who believes Devon loves her as much as she is in infatuated with him. Even worse, Shontae is responsible for introducing her husband to Monica- or so she thinks. The tangled web is weaved and Shontae is not only dealing with Devon's odd behavior but his mother's distaste for her.

Is it time for Devon's past to catch up to him? Will Monica wreak havoc on the newlyweds and their recent move to LA?

Brown's writing grabbed me form the get-go immediately. I was drawn into Brown's writing, dialogue and believable characters and their interaction. She made ever word count. I found no missing elements in Hollywood Swinging. Brown used her writing talent to its best abilities and I was enthralled with her style. The realization that this storyline could be anyone, anywhere at anytime made me enjoy it more. Kudos to Brown.
