Lips Close to Mine

by Robin Bielman

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: November 20th

 

 

Synopsis:

 

I wasn’t supposed to see Levi Pierce ever again. A few months ago, he charmed the pants off me and we spent one incredible night together.

 

End of story.

 

Only it wasn’t. Pretty soon everywhere I turn, I see him. Our best friends are dating. My mother mistakenly—and happily—thinks he’s my plus-one to my cousin’s wedding. And he’s the guy I have to work with on the most important job opportunity of my life.

Here’s my problem: I like Levi. I like his killer smile and his dreamboat eyes and definitely the way he makes me feel in bed. But I’ve sworn off relationships. So when the sexual tension reaches epic proportions and we fall back into bed together, I tell myself it’s temporary. When I start to feel more, I tell myself it’s over.

 

Only Levi isn’t a forget-it kind of guy. When his lips are close to mine and he swears he’s always wanted me, my defenses disappear. But some things in life just aren’t meant to be.

 

 

Or are they?

 

 

 

 

Excerpt:

 

 

      “What do you say we open that champagne then skinny-dip in the fountain?” I ask, releasing my seat belt. That I’m dying to Harper her naked again might have something to do with my suggestion, too.        

 

She searches my eyes for clues I’m serious. I help her out. “Unless you’re chicken.”

 

        With a straight face, she unclicks her seat belt, picks up the bottle of champagne and proceeds to pop the cork like a champ. She takes a swig, her full lips wrapped around the bottle, her eyes never leaving mine. My dick twitches as I imagine her gorgeous mouth sucking me deep. Full disclosure: I’ve been picturing this every damn night for the past two months.        

 

“Your turn.” She hands me the bottle as her tongue licks across her full bottom lip. If she’s trying to torture me, it’s working.        

 

Our fingers brush when I accept the Dom Perignon, and once again, the small, effortless touch isn’t enough. I take a small gulp of the sparkling drink, mindful I’m driving. When finished, I pass it back. “So, your cousin said something interesting to me tonight.”        

 

“Shit.”         .

 

I laugh. The harder Harper tries to keep me at arm’s length, the more her family tries to draw me in. “Since you’re sitting at the head table during the wedding reception, she wanted me to know I’ll be sitting with your brothers.”        

 

She chokes on the champagne. “What the hell? I never RSVP’d you were my plus-one.”        

 

“Your mom did.”        

 

Harper’s head falls back against the seat, chin up, eyes closed. “That woman is impossible. I’ll tell them you’re not coming to the wedding.”        

 

“I don’t mind.”        

 

“I do.”        

 

All right. Whatever you want.”        

 

“That’s it? Just like that, you’re not coming now?” She shifts positions, drawing her legs up so she’s sitting on them and facing me. I hadn’t noticed that she’d slipped off her shoes.        

 

“I don’t want to make you uncomfortable around your family.”        

 

“You don’t do that.”        

 

“You sure? I think I do.”        

 

“No. You don’t. Not even a little. But…”        

 

“But what?”        

 

“I did tell my mom I had a date so she wouldn’t bug me about it. I was planning to find a random guy to go with me, so I guess since she thinks it’s you…” She takes a drink, extends me the bottle.        

 

I put my palm over my heart. “How magnanimous of you.”        

 

“I know,” she teases. “Don’t you forget it.”        

 

“So I am going to the wedding?”        

 

“Yes.”

Lips Close to Mine (Wherever You Go, #2)Lips Close to Mine by Robin Bielman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #2, in the Wherever You Go series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

Harper and Levi have both sweet and hot history. All she knows now, is she cannot stop thinking about him. How he sets her on fire. The chemistry between them is unreal.

Levi wants another chance with Harper and she seems wary of that. He is consumed with thoughts about her and their time together. Thanks to mutual friends, they see one another often.

This is such a fun series! These characters have remarkable heat. The banter is fun, the pace solid and consistent. Was an easy and delightful read.

Chasing Xander (The Collins Brothers) - Lexi Lawton

This is the 2nd book in The Collins Brothers series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  To avoid spoilers, and have a better understanding of the series, please read this in order.

 

Kylie meets Alexander AKA "Xander" on move in day at her dorm.  He helps her pick up items that have dropped in front of the building.  She is immediately attracted, but does not believe he is interested in her.

 

Xander has a lot going on right now.  Adding a pretty girl who is distracting may not be the best of ideas.  When he cannot get through the day without thinking of her, he knows it is time to make a plan.

 

These characters were so much fun to read.  I loved the banter, and right from the start the heat between them was obvious.  Easy to root for such interesting characters, I could not put this one down until I knew the end!  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Dark Embrace (Dark Gothic Book 6) - Eve ... Dark Embrace (Dark Gothic Book 6) - Eve Silver

I deliberately gave no rating; from a technical point of view: there were a few typos (auto-correct?) but that was not why.

 

I quite liked the first two in this series; the next three were okay but nothing special.  It was my first foray into gothic style romance (okay, other then many years ago Victoria Holt) so I was not entirely sure what to expect. I had already pre-ordered this one and after the last three had meant to cancel the order but forgot.

 

The book (the reader will know early on) took a paranormal turn. Vampire novels just don't do it for me.

A Vampire's Embrace - Caris Roane

The next installment in Caris Roane's spin-off of the Blood Rose series brings us Holly, a college professor that on the outside comes across as uptight and judgmental. She doesn't agree with Rez's desertion from the Vampire Guard. He is a rough-around-the-edges biker type that likes women and hates commitment. He doesn't have time to deal with Miss Lofty College Professor when he is hunting for his kidnapped daughter, the only surviving member of his murdered family. He doesn't care what people think of his actions to leave the Guard and he certainly doesn't seem to like Holly, but when he is injured fighting the Invictus he knows he is moments from death and reaches out to Holly who had healed him months earlier in a bar fight with Mastyr Stone. She comes to his aid because she is drawn to him though she doesn't want to be. That moment of healing him starts the ball rolling on their adventure with looking for his daughter, dealing with their strong attraction to each other even though they don't particularly like each other, and the new development of Holly being a Blood Rose. Sparks fly and they come to know each other better, but Rez tells her straight up that he has no love in his heart to give her and doesn't want a relationship with her. She knows she will have to find a Mastyr to bond with even though she only wants Rez. She refuses to push him for more than he can give and in the end sacrifices herself to save his daughter. Rez of course only needed a push to realize that he loves Holly and he flies to her rescue. I liked them as a couple. They are strong, the conflicts they face to have a relationship are well developed and they come together slowly (sort of). I liked the pace, the passion, Holly's rebellious tendencies that Rez had no idea she had, and Rez was a very strong male lead. The bad guys are formidable but not more than our heroes can handle. I liked this one.
