Off The Record (Record #1) by K.A. Linde

I didn't like this book. It wasn't for me. I didn't eve finish it, which isn't normal for me. No matter how horrible a book is, I tried to finish it but I just couldn't with this one.

The characters didn't seem that developed and the author didn't seem like she knew where she was going with the characters. The main characters Liz and Brady didn't have chemistry. It is very important for the main character who the book is about to have chemistry and they lacked it big time. Their whole relationship seemed forced. Their sexual encounters weren't that great either. It seemed like Brady was just using her for sex. He wasn't trying to get to know her outside the bedroom. They didn't have any love and it's suppose to be a love story.

The only thing that held my attention for half the book was the forbidden romance thing. They were sneaking around. Liz used a fake name and Brady would only allow them to be together when he said it was okay. Sneaking around and the thrill of being caught is fun but Brady made it seem like a lot more work than it was.

Liz also seemed a little immature for Brady and she had no personality. I didn't see how so many of the guys in the book wanted her when she seemed dull and boring. She alone lacked character. Brady seemed embarrassed of Liz. He is suppose to be a senator. Liz is a reporter for a college paper. Their relationship is bad for his public image. But I think if he loved her and really wanted to be with her, none of that would have matter. Liz also repeated herself a lot. She would talk about the same thing over and over again. It was boring.

I however don't see why the relationship is so bad. She is single, he is single. They can be together if they want. The senator/reporter thing shouldn't matter so much as it did in the book. I couldn't get into the storyline and thought it was weak. The author could have done better.

Twisted (Tangled #2) by Emma Chase

There are two kinds of people in the world. The ones who look first, and the ones who leap. I’ve always been more of a looker. Cautious. A planner. That changed after I met Drew Evans. He was so persistent. So sure of himself – and of me.

But not all love stories end happily ever after. Did you think Drew and I were going to ride off into the sunset? Join the club. Now I have to make a choice, the most important of my life. Drew already made his –in fact, he tried to decide for the both of us. But you know that’s just not my style. So I came back to Greenville. Alone. Well, sort of alone....

What I've come to realize is that old habits die hard and sometimes you have to go back to where you began, before you can move ahead.

TWISTED picks up two years after Tangled’s end, and is told from Kate’s POV.

Teaser 1:
I step into the apartment. The lights are out. I put my keys on the table and take off my coast. I flick the switch on the wall, flooding the room with light.

And that's when I see him.

Drew is standing in the middle of our living room, his dress shirt unbuttoned, exposing the chest that I've traced my fingers over a thousand times. The warm, bronze skin I love to touch. He has a half empty bottle of Jack Daniel's in one hand. And the other hand is hidden. Buried.

Teaser 2:
I physically ached for his smile, his scent, his voice.

Imagine a car's going sixty miles an house down a country road and a tree falls and the cars hits it. Boom- instant stoppage. But if the person in the driver's seat isn't wearing a seatbelt? They're still going sixty.

And that's what love is like.

It doesn't just stop. No matter how hurt or wronged or angry you are- the love's still there.

Off The Record (Record #1) by K.A. Linde

Liz Dougherty has no idea a single question is about to change her life.

Her first big reporting assignment for her North Carolina college newspaper has her covering a state senator’s impromptu press conference. Brady Maxwell may have everything it takes to be a politician—a winning pedigree, devastating good looks, a body made to wear suits—but his politics rub Liz the wrong way. When Liz’s hard-hitting question catches the upstart senator off-guard, it impresses Hayden Lane, Liz’s editor who feels she’s headed for a promising career as a reporter.

But Liz is also headed into a secret romance with Brady that could destroy both their ambitions. Though he’s a bachelor, potential voters might frown on Brady cozying up to a reporter. And Liz isn’t sure sneaking around is enough for her—especially when things between her and Hayden might be less platonic than she thought.

Sleek, sexy, and smart, Off the Record ventures into a high-stakes campaign and an even higher-stakes affair to answer the question: When politics and love collide, can there ever be a winner?

Liz's heart skipped a beat. She hadn't seen Brady in three days. He had been busy in Raleigh all week working on campaign related materials. He hadn't really said much else about it. Now here he was asking to see her when she was busy working on the article Hayden had recommended to her.

She really wanted to, but tonight was not the best night. "Brady, I can't."

"What? Why not?" he demanded. She could tell he was impatient. 

"I'm working. I have this huge article I'm putting together. I've been working on it for hours."

"Then you need a break. I'm already in the car. I'm not turning around," he said simply. 

Liz sighed. "Seriously. I'm worried if I take a step away I'll lose my entire focus on it. This is a big deal for me."

She really wanted him to understand. She had a life separate from him. Her job as a reporter was what she had been striving toward for a long time. She wasn't willing to give up her dreams any more than he was willing to give up the campaign. And in reality, neither of them should have to. They should be able to make this work while still being the same people. She wondered whether that was ever going to be possible.

"Liz, I haven't seen you in three days. That is three days too many. I'm coming to see you. Where are you?"

Nothing New...

I haven't really read anything new in the last couple of weeks. Nothing has spark an interest for me. I did however read This Man Series again which I still love and can't get enough of. Everytime I read it, it feels like its the first time and I can't put the book down. I know what's going to happen and I could probably recite the whole series without the book but I still love reading it. I really hope Jodi Ellen Malpas writes more books. I love her writing style and the characters she writes about.

I did however have a few questions about some of the things that happen in the books. Every time I read the series the same questions always nag me and I can't for the life of me figure them out. 

Beauty From Love (Beauty #3) by Georgia Cates

Beauty From Love was a wonderful conclusion to Jack and Laurelyn's love story. I was wondering what has going to happen to these two and this book fulfilled my curiosity. But at the same time I was also thinking a third book would be too much. I thought the first two books in the series were great and the a third book wasn't really needed. The second book gave the reader a happy ending, however I am glad there was a third. It wrapped everything up for the characters and gave everyone in the series happy ending instead of just the two main characters. The chapters alternate between Jack and Laurelyn. 

This book picked right up where the second book left off. It's the day after their wedding and they are on their way to their honeymoon. The beginning is very lovely dovely and a little steamy. Jack and Laurelyn are enjoying being husband and wife. Jack, however, wants kids soon. Laurelyn doesn't feel the same way. She wants to enjoy each other and not have to share Jack with kids. She is also scared she won't be a good mom considering she doesn't have the greatest role models.

Most of the book is about rather they should have kids, Laurelyn getting pregnant and the complications that come with the pregnancy. Jack's past also comes up. (Why doesn't it seem like every author writes the male character to have a screwed up past that is hard for the female to understand?) Laurelyn stands by her husband, she loves him and wants to be with him even with his messed up past. Laurelyn's best friend also makes an appearance and is pregnant. There is also females that throw themselves at Jack which Laurelyn has to learn to deal with.

The only thing I had a problem with was that there wasn't really one big problem the couple had to deal with but rather several small problems. I would have rather them only have one huge problem.
It seemed like the characters really grew up in a way and seemed way more mature than they did in the first two books. I liked this book but I didn't love it like the other two in the series.

Tied With Me (With Me in Seattle #6) by Kristen Proby

A man whose lifestyle is so different from her own.
Nic Dalton’s cupcake bakery is thriving. She serves both rock stars and locals alike, content with her growing business. But one adventurous night out with her best friend, Bailey, turns her life upside down. She meets a handsome stranger who makes her skin sizzle and her heart race. Their one night together is explosive and unexpected, but when he has to suddenly leave without taking her phone number, Nic resigns herself to never seeing him again.
What will it take to trust and submit to his every desire?

Matt Montgomery is one of Seattle’s finest. He works hard, loves and protects his family fiercely, and is loyal almost to a fault.
And he has a penchant for bondage.
Matt enjoys the way a woman looks wrapped up in his ropes, and makes no apologies for his preferences. When he meets Nic at a fetish festival, the small, beautiful woman catches his eye, drawing him to her. His one night with her was everything he’s ever looked for in a partner, but is cut short because of a family emergency. Even before he sees her again weeks later, he knows he’ll never get her out of his system.
And he’ll do whatever it takes to make her his.

Teaser 1: 
“Oh my God, you really can cook.” I sit back in my chair and push my finished plate of poached salmon and salad away from me and sip my water, watching Matt across the table.

“You doubted me?” he asks with a raised brow.

“Not at all.” I shake my head and laugh. “I’m just offering you a compliment.”

He nods and stands to clear the table, and I join him. “You cooked, I’ll clean.”

“We can do this together,” he offers, but I shake my head adamantly.

Teaser 2:
“Do I look okay?” she asks with a smile.

“It’s not fair to be more beautiful than the bride-to-be,” I tell her with a sober expression.

“That’s an old line if ever I heard one.” She laughs and retrieves her small purse, tosses her phone, wallet and lipstick inside and shrugs. “I’m ready.”

“It wasn’t a line,” I say. “You are stunning. And I’ll have to murder my brothers just for looking at you tonight.”

“Trust me.” She laughs. “Your brothers are completely happy with the women they have.”

I lean in and kiss her neck gently, enjoying the shiver that moves through her. 

“I love it when you wear blue,” she murmurs, sliding her hand down my button-down shirt.

“You do?”

“It makes your eyes look even more blue, if that’s possible.”

Under Locke by Mariana Zapata

Under Locke was not for me. I didn't like it. There were parts of the book that were okay but overall the book wasn't that great. I was expecting a lot with this book and was let down big time. It was suppose to have a motorcycle hottie that is in a motorcycle gang of sorts but it fell short. It didn't even seem like a real motorcycle gang to me. The plot needed a little work and there was questions that were left unanswered. It was too long too. The story went on for too long. Some of the repetitiveness could have be cut out.

Iris was too naive for me to handle. I couldn't stand her at all. I think she is the reason I didn't like the book. She was too young, too in her head, too nice and she repeated everything a hundred times. The book needed a strong female and Iris wasn't it. The author tired to make her strong with her going through so much at a young age but everything that she went through didn't make her strong, it made her whiny. She let everyone tell her what to do and treat her like a child. She needed to stand up for herself. The times when it seemed like she was trying to stand up for herself seemed forced and not right. Iris annoyed me plain and simple.

Dex seemed like an uptight asshole. He was mean, rude and didn't care if he hurt people's feeling. I liked his character's potential but I didn't like how his character was. He needed a little work. He was a hottie and was older but I don't see why he felt so protective of Iris but then was so hurtful towards her. He didn't like anyone else being mean to her but it was okay for him to be.

I don't think the author knew where she was going with this story. Iris would be in her head describing something and that would make her remember something that happen to her. Iris kept saying she had a best friend that she used to live with but she never called her or went to see her. It was like this friend was a ghost or imagery.

Beyond Me by Jennifer Probst

Spring break in Key West with my besties was supposed to be casual fun. But I never expected to meet James Hunt. Sex and frolic? Yes! A relationship? No. But his hot blue eyes and confident manner drew me in. And when he let me see the man behind the mask, I fell hard, foolishly believing there could be a future for us. Of course I never considered our relationship might be based on lies…or that his betrayal could rock my foundation and make me question everything I believed in.
The moment I saw Quinn I knew I had to have her. She hooked me with her cool eyes and don’t touch me attitude. I had it all, money, social status, and looks. I could get any girl I wanted…until her. When my friends challenged me with a bet to get her into bed by the end of the week, I couldn’t pass it up. But sex wasn’t supposed to turn into love. She wasn’t supposed to change me, push me, and make me want more for myself. She wasn’t supposed to wreck me in all ways. And now, if I can’t turn my lies into truth, I just might lose her forever.

Teaser 1:
James. Please.”
He breathed heavily, and when he finally lifted his head, those aquamarine eyes sucked me in, foggy with lust and naked want. I went to reach for him again, but the sound of laughter close by made me stiffen as reality leaked in. Holy shit, I was on a public beach with people everywhere! This was not like me at all; I was an extremely private person. The thought of strangers watching me practically climb on him with my dress exposing my girly parts freaked me out. Shaking, I tried to pull back, but he realized I was upset and tightened his hold. Tucking my head under his chin, he pressed a kiss into my hair, gently caressing my back.

Teaser 2: 
He shrugged. “Usually after break is over, I move on. Sometimes I stay a week or two longer, depending on my plans.”
I hated the doubts that suddenly sprang to mind. He probably seduced a girl each year, kept her for the week, then moved on. And wasn’t my goal the same thing? So stupid. I had gotten attached after one lousy day in his bed. I’d make a terrible casual lover. I stiffened my resolve to make sure I didn’t make it more than it was, or pressure him in any way. Even after his words that this seemed to mean a bit more than an easy roll in the hay. “Sounds perfect,” I said lightly, finishing up my food.

Pretty Little Things by Teresa Mummert

I was young enough not to understand that my life was different. Colin became the one person that I could count on to protect me. He suffered for the both of us by carrying the burden of our secret.
We were the lucky few that got a chance to start over. A fake family, a new home and a pretty little life built on lies. But while our lives continued to intertwine, we were put on very different paths. Now it was only a matter of time before they collide and the beast behind the beauty is exposed.

Teaser 1:
“Change your outfit, or you’re not leaving.”
“Watch me.” I pivoted on my toes, my long blond curls hitting him in the chest. Two muscular arms banded around my waist, pulling my feet from the ground as he held me against him from behind.
“Annie, I’m a very fucking busy man,” he growled next to my ear. “Do not pull this bullshit tonight. This is not a fucking game. Change your clothes, or I will lock you in your room. Do I make myself clear?”

Teaser 2: 
How many of those have you had?” I asked as I looked up at him over my shoulder.
“Not nearly enough.” He tipped it to his lips again and drained the last of it from his glass before setting it on a side table without a coaster. I tried not to cringe at the watermark it was going to leave on a table that probably cost a small fortune.
“Let’s watch”—his long fingers slid over the movie cases—“this one.” He pulled out the case for Flowers in the Attic.
“Seriously? No.” I took the movie and shoved it back in its spot as my entire body felt hot. Why was he acting like this?
“What’s wrong with a little brotherly love?” he joked as he leaned closer to my neck, his breath tickling my skin as his mouth ghosted over the sensitive flesh. I closed my eyes, breathing in the smell of his No. 1 cologne.

Teaser 3: 
He stood up, towering over me as he pulled his plain white T-shirt over his head and let it fall to the ground next to his feet. “Take off your shirt.”
“What? No. You’re out of your mind!” My voice rose as I clutched my sheet to my chest, shaking my head.
“Annie, I promised, and I meant it. Trust me.” He enunciated each word as his hard gaze bore down at me, but I wasn’t sure he trusted himself.

Mr. Beautiful (Up In The Air) by R.K.Lilley

Mr. Beautiful has a cover. I'm not too excited for this book but I have to say the book cover is pretty sexy. It's supposed to released sometime this year.

Maybe Someday by Collen Hoover

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover, a passionate tale of friendship, betrayal, and romance—and the enchanting music that inspires one young woman to put her life back together.

At twenty-two years old, aspiring musician Sydney Blake has a great life: She’s in college, working a steady job, in love with her wonderful boyfriend, Hunter, and rooming with her good friend, Tori. But everything changes when she discovers Hunter cheating on her with Tori—and she is left trying to decide what to do next.

Sydney becomes captivated by her mysterious neighbor, Ridge Lawson. She can’t take her eyes off him or stop listening to the daily guitar playing he does out on his balcony. She can feel the harmony and vibrations in his music. And there’s something about Sydney that Ridge can’t ignore, either: He seems to have finally found his muse. When their inevitable encounter happens, they soon find themselves needing each other in more ways than one…

From the author of the New York Times bestsellers Slammed, Point of Retreat, Hopeless, This Girl, and Losing Hope, Maybe Someday is destined to become another bestseller and long-lasting fan favorite.

Oh, Lord. What is he about to do? Put his hands on me? Does he want to feel me sing this song? Feeling requires touching, and touching requires hands. His hands. Feeling me.
Ridge: Do you trust me?
Me: I don’t trust anyone anymore. My trust has been completely depleted this week.
Ridge: Can you replenish your trust for about five minutes? I want to feel your voice.
I inhale, then look at him—lying next to me—and I nod. He sets down his phone without breaking my gaze. He’s watching me as if he’s warning me to stay calm, but it’s having the exact opposite effect. I’m sort of panicked right now.
He scoots closer and slides his arm under the back of my neck.
Now he’s even closer.
Now his face is hovering over mine. He reaches across my body and pulls the guitar flush against my side, bringing it closer to us. He’s still eyeing me with a look that seems intended to produce a calming effect.
It doesn’t. It doesn’t calm me down at all.
He lowers his head to my chest, then presses his cheek against my shirt.
Oh, this is great. Now he definitely feels how spastic my heart is beating right now. I close my eyes and want to die of embarrassment, but I don’t have time for that, because he begins strumming the strings of the guitar next to me. I realize he’s playing with both hands, one from underneath my head and one over me. His head is against my chest, and I can feel his hair brush my neck. He’s pretty much sprawled across me in order to reach his guitar with both arms.
Oh, my dear sweet baby Jesus in a wicker basket.

Some Good Trilogies

Consumed Series by Skyla Madi

This Man Series by Jodi Ellen Malpas
 Gabriel's Inferno Series by Sylvain Reynard

The Game Series by Nyrae Dawn

 The Fixed Series by Laurelin Paige

 The Beauty Series by Georgia Cate

Beautifully Broken Series by Courtney Cole

The Driven Series by K. Bromberg

Tainted (Torn #3) by K.A. Robinson

Tainted is in 3 parts. The first part is from Drake's POV and tells his side of what happen after Chloe left him. The second part is from Chloe's POV and is about their love being rebuilt after getting back together. The last part one chapter and is about Drake going home to Chloe to see his baby be born.

This book wasn't really my favorite. I only read it because I wanted to know what happen. There was a lot of repetitive stuff. I mostly skip parts just to get it over with. I could skip a whole page and it was still talking or describing the same exact thing. It seemed like the book dragged on.

Drake seemed a lot more whinier than in the previous books. He complained about everything and wasn't happy. I didn't like the whole drug addicted thing. I know that was apart of the book but reading it from his POV just blew my mind. I didn't understand why he just couldn't quit. He had already lose Chloe and she was supposedly the most important person in his life. It shouldn't have been that hard. I was glad that the author described his time in rehab.

Chloe seemed like she had grown a lot. She seemed a lot more mature. I like how she was willing to give Drake another chance since he was clean again. I loved the second part and how they were trying to find their way back to each other and heal their relationship. I was also glad they got married. I think out of the whole book, Drake planning the wedding so Chloe didn't have to was my favorite part in this not so great book.

This book isn't that great but it could have been better. I think the author just wrote it to give readers and fans a conclusion to Drake's and Chloe's love story. There really wasn't a point to this book other than that. There wasn't even a big climax or turning point. It seemed like the book should have been longer just so it could have something dramatic happen.

Forever With You (Fixed #3) by Laurelin Paige

I loved this final book in the Fixed Series. I think it was my favorite of all the books in the series. The author really knows what she is doing. This book didn't disappoint. It answered all the questions I had and all the secrets were finally revealed. This book is different from other romance books I have read in the past.  The book is from Alayna's POV, which is okay but I would have loved to hear from Hudson's mind a little bit. This book picked up right where the second book ended.

Alayna and Hudson loved each other deeply even though they had been through so much and had made tons of mistakes. They say they trust each other but there are so many times when its the complete opposite. They both have messed up pasts that they are trying to get pass. They both want to heal and what better way than with someone just as damaged as you are. They understand each other.

Forever With You begins with Alayna having a nightmare about the question everyone wants to know. What is on the tape that Hudson's sister's assistant Stacy has. Most of the book is about this tape and Alayna not being able to trust Hudson. Hudson constantly tells her to trust him. He's trying to protect her. But things keep happening that make it hard for her to trust him. Hudson decides it's too hard for him to deal with and leaves.

Alayna had a very good reason to not trust Hudson. He was hiding a huge secret that could destroy them and their already shaky relationship. Hudson pissed me off a lot in this book. I just want him to tell Alayna what was going on. I though I knew where this book was headed but I was throw off when it was finally revealed. I always wonder if Hudson was playing a game or did he really like Alayna from the beginning. In the first 2 books, I always thought he was just playing her. I was glad that he cared for her and was indeed playing a game but it was just to protect her.

Alayna's jealousy and insecurity annoyed me a lot in this book. She was jealous and insecure in the first 2 books but it seem liked it was up a whole 100 degrees. I know it can be hard to trust someone you love when their actions are telling you not to but Alayna should have trusted Hudson a little. He was only trying to protect her and he never gave her a reason not to trust him. Everyone else around him was the ones telling her not to trust him. She should have listen to him. She was in the relationship with him not everyone else. I did wish he would just tell her what was going on and put her out of her constant asking misery. Alayna always bring the same thing up pissed me off.

Hudson and Alayna get back together and they decided to get married. Hudson tells her everything and all their dark secrets are out in the open. Hudson's mom gets the help she desperately needed.  I loved how deeply their love ran for each other. They never gave up on each other even when they should have. When they had high moments, they were extremely high but the lows were horribly low. It seemed like they had a hard time finding a middle level.

I loved how Alayna was the one with the stalker past and was always being too clingy with her boyfriends. When Hudson first leaves she does text him a lot but he doesn't seem bothered by it. Once his secret come out and Alayna leaves, he's the one constantly texting her. I liked the role reversal thing. It proved to me he needed her just as much as she needed him.

I am sad that another book trilogy of mine has ended. It is hard to find a good book to read and when I do, I never want them to be over.

Crashed (The Driven Trilogy #3) by K. Bromberg

Life is full of moments.
Big moments.
Little moments.
And none of them are inconsequential.
Every single moment prepares you for that one instance that defines your life. You must overcome all your fears, confront the demons that chase you, and cleanse the poison that clings to your soul or you risk the chance of losing everything. 

Mine started the minute Rylee fell out of that damn storage closet. She made me feel. Made me whole when all I thought I could ever be was incomplete. Became the lifeline I never knew I needed. Hell yes, she’s worth the fight…but how do you fight for someone you know you don’t deserve? 

Love is full of ups and downs.
Heart stopping highs.
Soul shattering lows.
And none of them are insignificant.
Love is a racecourse of unexpected twists and turns that must be negotiated. You have to break down walls, learn to trust, and heal from your past in order to win. But sometimes it’s the expected that’s the hardest to hold on to.

Colton has healed and completed me, stolen my heart, and made me realize our love’s not predictable nor perfect—it’s bent. And bent’s okay. But when outside factors put our relationship to the test, what lengths will I have to go to prove to him that he’s worth the fight?

Whoever said love is patient and love is kind, never met the two of us. We know our love is worth it—have acknowledged that we were meant to be—but when our pasts crash into our future, will the repercussions make us stronger or break us apart?

Teaser #1:
I stand outside of the intensive care unit and prepare myself. Fear and hope collide until one big ball of anxiety has my hands trembling as I turn the corner to stand at his doorway.
It takes me a moment to gain the courage to raise my eyes and take in the broken body of the man I love. The images in my head are worse—bloody, bruised, total carnage—but even those couldn’t have prepared me for the sight of Colton. His body is whole and unbloodied, but he lies there so motionless and pale. His head is wrapped in white gauze and his eyelids are partially closed, the whites of his eyes showing somewhat from the swelling of his brain. He has tubes coming out of him every which way, and the monitors beep around him constantly. But it’s not the sight of all of the medical equipment that breaks me—no—it’s that the life and fire of the man I love is nonexistent.
I shuffle toward the bed, my eyes mapping every inch of him as if I’ve never seen him before, never felt him before. Never felt the thunder of his heart beating against my own chest. I reach out to touch him—needing to desperately—and when I hold his hand in mine, it’s cold and unresponsive. Even the calluses I love—the ones that rasp deliciously over my bare skin—are not there.
The tears come. They fall in endless streams as I blindly sink down into the chair beside the bed. I grip Colton’s hand with two of mine, my mouth pressed to our joined hands, my tears wetting his skin. I cry even harder when I realize the all too familiar Colton scent that feeds my addiction has been replaced by the antiseptic hospital smell. I didn’t realize how much I needed that scent to be there. How much I needed that small, lingering piece of the man I love to remain when everything else has changed so drastically.
Incoherent words cross my lips and muffle against our entwined hands. “Please wake up, Colton. Please,” I sob.

Teaser #2: 
 I smile softly as I lift my head and look at all the reminders of last night. How sweet the gesture was from a man who swears he doesn’t subscribe to the notion of romance, when everything around us screams just the opposite. What man calls in a favor from his dad to get a copy of his not-released-yet but soon-to-be-blockbuster movie so he can have an uninterrupted date night with his girlfriend? And even though I came to find out he had Quinlan’s help, it was all his idea … the little touches here and there, because it’s the little things that mean so much more to me than the extravagant ones.
I raise my head up from where it rests on his chest and watch him sleep, let my love for him warm the parts of me the breeze has cooled. “I can feel you watching me,” he says groggily with a curl of his lip even though his eyes remain closed.
“Mmm-hmm.” I can’t help the smile on my face.
“Whose idea was it to sleep out here? It’s too damn bright.” He shifts, eyes still closed, but brings the arm that rests behind his head down to pull me closer to him.
“I believe the words were, ‘Your voodoo has worked its magic and stolen mine. I have no energy to move,’” I repeat, not hiding the smug look on my face or the pride in my voice.
“Nope, definitely not my words,” he says before cracking open an eye and looking over to me, that salacious smirk I love displayed proudly. “I’ve got magic in spades, baby, it must have been some other guy your voodoo sucked the life from.”
