Michelle Hazen is back with Insatiable, the next standalone in her Sex, Love, and Rock & Roll series. When a sex addict lead singer falls into friendship with a hard rock diva, he must fight their attraction or risk ruining her life. Fans of rockstar romances will devour this angsty yet heartwarming story about a bad boy who’s a good man.
Today, Michelle is here to introduce us to her hero and heroine, and she’s got some pictures to help you picture them!
An Insatiable dream cast
If I were casting a movie version of Insatiable, I would know immediately who would play Ava. But Jax is much harder since (don’t laugh) most movie stars aren’t hot enough to measure up.
However, I did manage to find some pics of a man who could carry off his sharp, masculine beauty and the weight of the shame and uncertainty that follows him everywhere once his cocky celebrity mask falls away.
Here are a couple more of Jax in his backstage persona:
Ava’s easiest to cast because I had the actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw in mind from the second I started writing Ava. When I was partway through the first draft, I found a movie called “Beyond the Lights” that she stars in, and it has a lot of parallels to Ava’s journey in my book. It’s super fun to watch because it’s like watching Ava come to life on screen. Just…with no Jax. Which is a bummer.
This is what I picture Ava looking like:
Ava is a complex person with a lot of sides to her. First, there’s the splashy, talented performer. I picture her like a hard rock version of Lady Gaga or Beyonce. Lots of costumes and different hair styles and colors and insane shoes and costumes.
But she also has a very sweet, funny side with a deep well of vulnerability, and that’s the side of her Jax sees when they start to open up to each other and become friends.
If you’d like to see more of Jax & Ava, including Ava’s crazy shoe collection and the dresses she, Kate, and Jera wore to the Sponsor Ball mentioned in the book, you can check out the Pinterest page for the book here: https://www.pinterest.com/michellehazenbo/insatiable/

Jax Sterling is a sex addict with the heart of a golden retriever puppy.
As the lead singer for the Red Letters, it’s easy to hide his loneliness behind his bad boy lifestyle…until he lands on tour with a hard rock goddess who makes him want the relationship he can never have.
Onstage, Ava’s all chains, whips and guitar licks, but the backstage confessions they share are darker than their leather.
She wants Jax, but he wants better for her than him.
But then, bad news drops that threatens the life of one of his bandmates, and the loyalty of the other. Terrified by how little he has left if he loses his best friends, Jax takes the plunge to let someone else into his life.
Until Ava finds out his ugliest sin, and it’s nothing she can forgive.
