About me

Hi I'm Janna and I am a book whore! I started this blog after being a part of another for years. While being a big blog may be nice I like to stay true to me having a love for books, that's why I blog. I love books and I want to share that love with my readers of this blog. I love to read, books are my escape and a huge part of my life besides my husband and two children. I am honest and sometimes sassy in my reviews but never mean. Some of my favorite authors include Kristen Ashley, Penelope Douglas, T.M. Frazier, M.N. Forgy, Rachel Van Dyken, Meghan March and Vi Keeland to only name a few!

ARC Review! Shut Up And Kiss Me By Jessica Lemmon

Cade: I tried. I really tried. I should be out of this small town by now, finishing my law degree and partnering up with my buddies, but I couldn’t resist one last street race. Now I’m sidelined in the hospital, and while my injuries will heal, I’m not so sure my voice will return. What kind of attorney can’t talk? Yeah, exactly. I’m afraid that I won’t be able to come back from this... until Tasha Montgomery reawakens every competitive bone in my body.

Tasha: I nearly watched Cade Wilson die on that lonely stretch of road. He’s damn lucky just to be alive, even if he doesn’t realize it. I know he’s destined for bigger and better things, but I don’t mind helping him get there as he relearns everything he took for granted. Cade’s a good student, a real perfectionist; I can tell how much his stutter bothers him. But when he lets his kisses do the talking, everything else disappears. And one day, maybe he’ll be able to tell me that he wants me—as much as I want him.

Cade and Tasha were interesting. The idea that the hero is not only recovering from an injury that hampers his ability to communicate but that the injury has shown him that he wants to travel a complete different path in his life puts the characters and the relationship into a different light, and it feels like a fresh and different story.

Jessica Lemmon is a favorite of mine for the characters she writes. They are interesting and engaging without being heavy. The characters are dealing with real issues, and real struggles, but this doesn't overshadow the romance. It is a difficult balance, and one that she does very well.

This can be read as a standalone, however the characters from the first Lost Boys book appear in this one, as Tasha and Rena are friends. There is the smallest possible spoiler in the story, but it is not one that will detract from reading this book, even if you haven't read the other.

I liked how real all of the characters felt in this book and I was sorry to see it end...although I am hopeful to see Tasha and Cade in future books, to check in on them.

I recommend this book.
