Praise for the novel:
“Wow! Wow! Wow! This book had me hooked! I was mesmerized by every aspect.” ~ Goodreads Review (Katy D.)
“This book has all the feels. It will make you laugh and cry all in one!” ~ Goodreads Review (Jennifer R.)
What a great book! So far I have loved every book I have read by this author. What started out as a quick read on a Saturday has turned into devouring every book I can by her! Lola is a much anticipated novel for me. We meet her very early on in another series of hers and after watching her go through what she has, I can honestly say that I was happy for her to get her own book. I was not disappointed.
The plot of this book is nice. It was a good one for these two characters. Ryan is someone we have met before as well. If you have read the authors For the Love of a Good Woman series, then you know all about Ryan. These two characters have a lot of emotional and mental blockades to deal with. This book gave them the perfect chance to do it.
Lola is a strong character. She was always strong, but I feel like her strength was tested in such a big way. She has really struggled with life since some events, but I feel she came out the other side better and stronger. Ryan. Oh my sweet Ryan. My heart is his. He is such a sweet man who has had to deal with something I hope to never have to experience myself. I loved getting to see where life has taken him.
The heat in this book is perfect for this book. These two characters are delicate and I feel the heat in this book reflects that. The characters themselves were written beautifully. I loved their interactions with each other. Their chemistry was different, but perfect for this book.
The writing style of this book is good. The pace of the book is steady. The story is told from a dual point of view. I really liked that we were able to see from some past characters. Lola was someone I was really excited to get to know more about. The author wrote her story in a way that I felt satisfied once it was over.
Overall, this is a wonderful story. I really enjoyed everything about it. There isn't a negative thing I can find to say about it. I have enjoyed every book in this series and cannot wait to see what the author does next.

I'm a stay at home mom that loves to read. Some of my favorite titles are Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Horatio Hornblower. I started writing when I was trying to come up with suggestions on ways I could help bring in some extra money. I came up with the idea that I could donate plasma because you could earn an extra $500/month. My husband responded with, "No. Find something else. Write a blog. Write a book." I didn't think I had anything to share on blog that a thousand other mothers hadn't already thought of. I decided to take his challenge seriously and sat down to write my first book, Jack. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed writing. From there, the stories continued to flow and I haven't been able to stop. I hope my readers enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. Between reading, writing, and taking care of three small kids, my days are quite full.

We all stood around my kitchen as I nervously wiped my hands on my pants, glancing into the other room to make sure James was still watching TV.
“What are we doing here?” Logan asked. “You said it was urgent.” “James wants to know about sex,” I said bluntly.
“So, tell him,” Jack shrugged. “It can’t have been that long since you’ve gotten some. You still know how it works.”
“He started talking about using his hand and knowing that I was screwing other women because I needed a
release. Then he said he didn’t want to have sex for the first time and not know what he was doing.”
“And what did you tell him?” Cole asked. “I fled the room.” I shook my head and started pacing. “I’m not prepared for this shit. My dad didn’t have the
talk with me. I fumbled through it and found my way. I don’t know the first thing about sex talks.”
“What would Cassie say?” Sean asked. “Are you fucking kidding me? She’d yell at me and tell me not to tell him more than he needs to know.” “Well, you can’t just send the kid out into the wild, sticking his dick wherever he wants. The boy has to know how to use it,” Sean huffed. “Come on. His uncles will set him straight.”
They all walked into the living room like this was the easiest thing in the world. I brought the beer. I knew better. “James,” Sebastian jerked his chin at him. James shut off the TV and leaned forward, resting his elbows on his
knees. “Listen, your old man is being awkward about this whole thing. Sex is natural. Ask anything you want and we’ll tell you.”
“Cool,” James nodded. “Okay, so when I want to have sex with a girl, what’s the best way to tell her?”
Sean snorted. “Well, you don’t just go up to her and tell her you want to stick your dick in her. You date her for a while and if you feel a connection, then you start moving on the bases.”
“Which bases?” James asked. “Christ, Ryan. Didn’t you tell this kid anything?” Jack crossed his arms and leaned against the wall. “Bases, like in baseball. First is kissing. Second, is touching her boobs, and third is touching her pussy. I think you can guess what a home run is.”
“No, that’s not the way it works,” Logan said. “First is french kissing. Second is groping. Third is oral sex. A home run is the full monty.”
“Really?” Sean quirked an eyebrow. “That’s not what I went by.” “Of course you didn’t, jackass,” Drew shoved him.
“Listen, it’s really easy. First is kissing and light petting. Second is oral. Third is intercourse. A home run is when you stick it in her ass,” Sean said.
“Whoa!” I held up my hands and shook my head. What the fuck was wrong with these guys? “You can’t say shit like that to my kid.”
“Girls really let you do that?” James asked in wonder. “Kid, if you get that, it’s like going on a fucking world tour,” Jack said. I dropped my head in my hands and sighed. This was not what I had in mind when I called them over. Advice? Sure. This? This was my worst fucking nightmare.
