Best fit
True Souls (The Soulmates Series Book 2) - Michele Gantz

This story is a prequel for the acclaimed Entwined Souls.  I recommend reading them in order, if possible.  Prepare for a burning hot read!

 

Michelle AKA Belle meets Jax after school from a new friend.  The instant connection is off the charts.  The air literally sizzles when they are in the same room.

 

Jax wants to stay away.  She is young, a friend to his sister.  The urge to be with her is clawing under his skin.  He wants to protect her.  The kisses are molten.  She is his.

 

This was such a fast paced read!  So much going on, and bless this author, with the flashbacks - it is easier to understand.  I loved the chemistry, even though it was quick.  Sometimes love just is.  I give this book a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

"Ryan continues her streak of amazingly accessible and authentic romantic fiction. Grip is a bold and unapologetic look at interracial romance and does not shy away from any of the ideals and prejudices that most of us are too polite to acknowledge - head on- amidst one of the sexiest, and provocative true love romances Ryan has penned to date. Break out the fans folks, Grip is aptly titled and sure to make you need a grip! -- Sheena, Smexy Books

 

 

 

FLOW, The GRIP PrequelFLOW, The GRIP Prequel by Kennedy Ryan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Marlon AKA Grip, meeting Bristol is full of laughter and tears. Right out of the gate, this prequel for the upcoming story in Grip is moving. Bristol comes to visit her brother, and Grip's best friend in California while she is on spring break.

Bristol wants to repair things with her brother. Since his best friend is interesting and makes her think, they get to know one another. The chemistry between these two - it's off the charts!

I really loved these characters in the previous Soul series books. I am thrilled to see their story come alive. I enjoyed reading it and eagerly devoured each page. This book is the prequel and I am really excited to read the next book!

Blurb:

 

In 8 years, Marlon James will be one of the brightest rising stars in the music industry. Bristol Gray will be his tough, no-nonsense manager. But when they first meet, she’s a college student finding her way in the world, and he’s an artist determined to make his way in it. From completely different worlds, all the things that should separate them only draw them closer. It’s a beautiful beginning, but where will the story end?

 

FLOW is the prequel chronicling the week of magical days and nights

that will haunt Grip & Bristol for years to come.

 

GRIP is the full-length conclusion of their story available March 2 here: http://kennedyryanwrites.com/grip/

Blurb:

 

Resisting an irresistible force wears you down and turns you out. I know. I’ve been doing it for years. I may not have a musical gift of my own, but I’ve got a nose for talent and an eye for the extraordinary. And Marlon James – Grip to his fans – is nothing short of extraordinary. Years ago, we strung together a few magical nights, but I keep those memories in a locked drawer and I’ve thrown away the key. All that’s left is friendship and work. He’s on the verge of unimaginable fame, all his dreams poised to come true. I manage his career, but I can’t seem to manage my heart. It’s wild, reckless, disobedient. And it remembers all the things I want to forget.

On my mind
Love's Back Pocket - Heather C. Myers

Holly agrees to go to a concert with a friend, and meets Tommy.  He calls her on her studying and has her go backstage.  Then he invites her to tour for the summer.

 

Tommy is attracted right from the start.  He is a bit selfish.  He is very talented.  He also has a way with women.  Holly cannot stand the man and she almost gives up on him.

 

This book reminded me of the original series romances.  Very old fashioned in its pacing and style.  You might even call it a modern My Fair Lady.  I thought the characters development was good to see.  Music and a hot guy are always a thrill to read also.  I give this story a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Blurb:

 

A new standalone romance from Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author Ilsa Madden-Mills...

 

They say nothing compares to your first kiss,

But our first kiss was orchestrated for an audience.

Our second kiss…that one was REAL.

He cradled my face like he was terrified he’d f*ck it up.

He stared into my eyes until the air buzzed.

Soft and slow, full of sighs and little laughs,

He inhaled me like I was the finest Belgian chocolate,

And he'd never get another piece.

A nip of his teeth, his hand at my waist...

And I was lost.

I forgot he was paying me to be his fake fiancée.

I forgot we weren’t REAL.

Our kiss was pure magic, and before you laugh and say those kinds of kisses don’t exist…

Then you’ve never touched lips with Max Kent, the hottest quarterback in college history.

 

Get ready for breathtaking kisses and dreamy football players…



 

EXCERPT:

 

Max stalked over to the barrier that divided the stands from the football field and jumped it. The fans went nuts as he brushed past them, some not even realizing it until he was down the aisle. The Jumbotron followed him.

 

“Good Lordy, what’s he doing?” Mimi asked, clutching at her chest.

 

“I don’t know,” I said rather weakly, taking the chance to study him the closer he came. He was beautiful, his shoulders impossibly broad. To add to the distraction, his helmet was in his hand and all that dark brown hair was flowing around his chiseled features as if he had a fan in his face. My Viking.

 

“He’s coming over here,” Mimi commented.

 

He was. But why?

 

I stopped breathing . . .right when he came to a halt in front of me and knelt down on one knee.

 

Eyes the color of a wild ocean gazed at me.

 

He took my left hand in his right one.

 

“Max,” I breathed, my heart fluttering.

 

He gazed up at me. “Sunny Blaine, will you marry me?”

 

The stadium went wild. In a daze, I looked up at the Jumbotron and felt like I was watching this happen to someone else. Camera phones flashed all around us.

 

My first clear thought was I’ll kill him.

 

Aloud, nothing came out but a faint wheeze. Clearly someone had stuffed a giant wad of cotton in my mouth. Clearly I needed something a lot stiffer to drink than this Diet Coke. Clearly my fake boyfriend was a freaking raving lunatic.

 

He sat his helmet on the ground next to my feet, reached inside it and pulled out a small black box.

 

No, no, no!

 

The box opened, and my stomach churned at the sight of the large round solitaire diamond ring that was nestled on the black silk. I blinked repeatedly to clear my vision.

 

With deft fingers, Max eased it out of the lining and slipped it on my left hand.

 

I stared down at it. Then back at him.

 

I was going to murder the hottest quarterback in the country.

 

Kiss her, Kiss her, the crowd chanted.

 

We were the focal point of the entire world.

 

Max stood and tugged me up with him until we were standing. He slid his hand around my neck and pulled his face to mine. The sky was blotted out as he kissed me.

 

But I hadn’t said yes!

 

I wouldn’t say yes.

 

Not to a fake engagement.

 

The applause of the stadium was deafening. And his kiss—it was deadly. Despite my rage, my body craved him. His lips were hot, so hot, and my tongue met his with a vengeance. We kissed hard, and I nipped at him, my teeth scraping across his lips. But the only one who’d end up bleeding in this scenario was me.

 

He eased back to take me in, and with a final look at my face he gave a thumbs-up sign to the entire stadium. They went nuts, chanting his name.

 

“I’m sorry,” he whispered in my ear, letting his hand trail down my arm as he stepped back from me. He walked away backward, eyes on me the entire time. The announcers for the game told everyone who might have missed it that Max Kent had just asked his girlfriend to marry him, and she’d said yes. More cheers came as they replayed him on his knee in front of me with a giant YES written across the top.

 

I plopped back down in my seat. Frozen.

 

“. . . did you see her face? Shocked . . .”

 

“. . . most romantic thing in football . . .”

 

“. . . luckiest girl in the world . . .”

 

My face went hot. Even my ears burned. I wanted to crawl under a seat.

 

God.

 

What a lie.

 

The half ended and our offense came out to the field, snapped the ball, and Max threw it straight to Tate who ran it in for another touchdown. My chest constricted and anger churned in my gut.

 

I didn’t care who won.

 

I hated football right now.

 

Most of all, I hated Max Kent, and I was going to make him pay.
