Simon & Schuster gives the Queen of VH1 her own book imprint called Monami Books. The debut book is set to be released this fall ‘Blurred Lines: A Novel’ written by none other than Mona Scott-Young herself and Courtney Parker. Blurred Lines is set in the music industry.


From the creator of the VH1 series Love & Hip Hop, the first novel in a new series inspired by the hit reality show which follows three generations of women whose lives are at odds when their music careers and personal relationships become closely intertwined.

Carys “CeCe” Reece is the only daughter of Atlanta hip-hop royalty: the top producer and singer Alana Reece. She lives a life of comfortable privilege but when she agrees to marry LA-based rapper Nicholas “Nikko” Anderson, all hell breaks loose.

Not only is Nikko the son of Alana’s archrival Nia Simon, Nia is also the ex-girlfriend of CeCe’s father. Old feelings ignite and new ones emerge in this sizzling and torrid novel set against the backdrop of the music world. Using real-life situations inspired by all three Love & Hip Hop shows, Blurred Lines is a scintillating debut novel that sheds light on what it takes to live, love, and thrive within today’s music industry.
