    4 Gorgeously Romantic Stars Friends to lovers and other complications This is the story of Carissa and Josh their paths crossed 3 years before time passed things and other people happened What will happen now???Carissa impulsively takes on a summer renovation project but things don't uite go to plan with her contractor Luckily for her ex Marine Josh has his very own contractor business and offers a helping hand Is that all that's on offer??? Josh and Carissa are drawn inexplicably to one another but they have one big stumbling block A code of honour A pact Do not mess with your friends exes Neither of them wants to lose a valuable friendship or risk the wrath of their close knit communityOur Hero and HeroineCarissa’s a good girl at heart She tries to do the right thing and avoid situations that will cause unease And she believes she SHOULD NOT be fantasizing about Josh No No NoI love her sassy personality her feistiness She doesn’t just fall into his arms Josh has to work for it and this makes us the reader want it even Anticipation and longing is wonderful Josh's moral fibre is admirable He’s such a good man and incredible sexy It was a refreshing change to read about him and it helped that he's as sexy as hell He wants to do the right thing by everyone But Josh has a secret A secret that could ruin his friendship??? Maybe?? And Carissa could suffer from small mind mentality?? They needed to keep things uncomplicated NO emotional involvement Are some things worth the risk? Drama dramaHer emotions were slightly contrary at timesI kept having a slight nagging uestion in my head but why??? Why can't you be together???The situation with the ex boyfriend seemed amicable They're friends so the 'drama' and reason Josh and Carissa are off limits to each other is a tad unnecessary if I'm absolutely 100% honest but at the same time for some reason I found it plausible??? I believed that the characters believed it however misguided they were if that makes sense? For me character motivation and believibility are very important so I did give this aspect of the story some thought There's a whole lot of drama with Josh's building company that added further layers to the story and the budding relationship of Josh and CarissaLovely feelingsMy heart hurt a little each time he thought a relationship with Carissa was not possible he was just so lovelyTheir intense attraction to one another became palpable I love stories where the main characters have such an intense pull towards each other There are some incredibly HOT times Smoking I enjoyed that a lotThe story is told from a dual point of view which is always luscious and it occasionally went back in time to cover key events from the past I loved that because it gave me so much understanding and meaning And in the end after all the drama view spoiler “She’d give him forever if he wanted her to” hide spoiler

    3 Bros Before Hoes StarsWhat can I say?? I didn't love it but I didn't hate it I think my biggest problem was with the conflict So three years ago Carissa was in town visiting her friend Maddie when she meets Josh It's love at first sight and all that jazz and they end up spending the night together and having the best sex of their lives Only for Josh to be deployed a few weeks later While Josh is gone Carissa ends up dating Josh's best friend Reed aka Fletcher They break up shortly after Josh returns but now things are all weird for everyone Apparently Josh Reed and all of their buddies had this big Bros before Hoes clause But Josh and Carissa never told anyone they slept together Carissa is flipping a house and it turns out she's getting screwed over by her contractor and so Josh swoops in and saves the day So naturally things between Josh and Carissa heat back up againwhat with the off the charts sex and all But hooking back up would be a direct violation of the bros before hoes clause But she had to realize that giving in to their primal urges was wrong in every way imaginable And the repercussions for getting involved again if anyone ever found out would be nothing less than nasty for both of them I mean FFS these people are in their mid to late twenties who gives a shit who sleeps with whom You people are adults act like it Talk to Reed No instead they act like they are still in high school and keep it a big secret So of course it all blows up when it could have been avoided by a simple conversation Sadly I also thought the side story of someone targeting Josh didn't add anything to the story Not to mention I figured out who done it right away The writing was pretty good and it was steamy I just didn't get the whole conflict Bros Before Hoesreally?

    4 Surprisingly Good StarsWhen I read the description of Can’t Shake You and reuested the ARC I honestly wasn’t sure what to expect On its face it seems like a cute little contemporary romance with a convenient plot device thrown in to insure our MCs don’t get to ride off into the sunset together too easily While it’s most definitely both of those things it’s also at times funny heartbreaking and sexy as hell Josh and Carissa met three years ago through Josh’s brother Dan and Carissa’s bff Maddie who also happen to be a couple The sexual tension between Josh and Carissa was undeniable and even though Carissa lived a few towns over and Josh was set to deploy to Ira the two spent an unforgettable night together Fast forward a couple of years when Josh returns home with thoughts of exploring a relationship with Carissa on his mind only to find out she’s moved to his hometown and is now dating one of his best friends Since Josh never claimed Carissa as his before he left and she’s now dating his friend apparently he can NEVER ask her out or pursue her romantically You know bros before hoes and all that jazz Now a year later finds Carissa and Josh both single and both wanting a relationship that can never be Damn the small town “rules” they’re forced to live by Yep this was my biggest and really only problem with the story What the hell kind of sorry excuse for not pursuing a relationship is that? You’re telling me that in a small town that often lacks fresh dating prospects once a girl’s taken her shot with one of these guys who’ve been friends since high school and the group of friends is large that’s it for her and any hopes of dating an attractive successful man? No nuh uh I don’t think so Suffice it to say this story would’ve been much stronger with a conflict that didn’t seem so easy to overcome simply by saying “We’re dating now You got a problem with that bitches??”Story problems aside I absolutely loved Josh and Carissa together The dialogue and banter was always natural and there was real affection between the two and they actually liked each other as friends beyond the sexy times Carissa and Josh both find themselves dealing with life and work related issues and I enjoyed seeing them rely on each other for support even with the lack of a real “relationship” And the sex? The sex between these two was hot as hell from the very beginning The appreciation these two have for each other’s bodies and what they can manage to accomplish with them made Josh’s decision not to pursue a relationship piss me off all that much Sheet burning sex isn’t always easy to come by especially when your buddies keep claiming all of the available womenWhile I did have my obvious issues with this story I also had a fabulous time reading it Can’t Shake You could’ve easily been a 3 Star read for me but I found it to be an entertaining and sexy read that's most definitely 4 star worthy ARC provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

    45 – Shaken and Stirred StarsIf “Can’t Shake You” is truly Molly McLain’s first book then all I can say is This book was a joy to read from start to finish I honestly have not written one negative thing in my notes Josh was swoonworthy tattooed and a soon to be ex marine Carissa is smart sassy and not afraid to go after what she wanted their friends and family likeable and easy to read No major angst or off the charts sob stories Just a group of people going about their lives in River Bend and dealing with the problems that are thrown their way I loved that they had a little history between them and we got too see glimpses of it as the story unfolds there is also a little suspense thrown in just for good measureThis is the type of book that when I have finished reading it leaves me fluttery tingles in the bottom of my tummy The flutters are for the excitement that I may have just discovered my next drop everything for to read series and the tingles are for that feeling you get when you know you have discovered an author that has the potential to blow you away with each and every book they releaseWhat I loved about Can’t Shake You most is it’s the foundation stone in what I believe could be absolute series gold we are introduced to enough secondary characters in the book that there is potential for uite a few to follow on I love that Tony is getting his story next and I CANNOT wait until June to read Can’t get EnoughARC provided via Netgalley and it was my absolute pleasure to provide the above honest review

    4 stars ”Ain’t no future in the past” It’s been three years since Carissa and Josh has shared a secret night one that forever changed their lives too bad that night came at the wrong time A lot has happened since then Josh came back to find “his girl” in a relationship with his best friend and since he never laid claim to her before he left according to the man code she was Fletcher’s and not his Avoiding each other at ever possibility pretending that they are just friends is getting harder and harder to do especially now that she is a single woman again Plus it doesn’t help that Carissa is in a bind when her spontaneous summer renovation project is in jeopardy and she has no choice but to accept the help of Josh “I want you Josh And I’m sick and tired or pretending I don’t” Josh never mixes his business with pleasure but even after all these years he can’t forget what it’s like to have her under him Josh has been all work and no play and Carissa is too much of a temptation just by simply breathing Thinking this is their chance to finally put out the fire between them once they give in to their desires but deep down they know there is no chance they both are gonna come out unharmed “You’re in my head every goddamn second of the day II can’t shake you baby girl And I sure as hell can’t forget how damn good we are together” Between keeping their naughty little secret Josh’s work Carissa’s hang ups a nosy small town they have their plates filled How long can it all lasts before everything starts to crumble ???Can’t Shake You was a great steamy read dealing with the small town life The whole lovers to friends to lovers thing was complicatedly delicious it made their prepost interactions even entertaining because you were in on the secret Josh had a heart of gold wanting to do what is right even though he probably will end up on the Carissa’s shit list Carissa wants to prove she can handle things on her own but the thing about a small town you are never really alone someone is always there to look out for and take care of you Their story is told from both their POV with plenty heat and a lil mystery that had me devouring the book in one sitting One thing that I had to get used was the man code I was yelling at the book for them to man up and shout their secret out but in the end I understood where they were coming from small town dynamics and all I can’t wait for the next book in the series something tells me Tony’s story is gonna be a sweet steamy read ; Another thing the warning that came with the book for me it wasn’t really a warning like a welcome sign lol Warning This book contains a hella sexy inked up hero a spunky heroine who isn’t afraid to speak her mind smokin’ hot sex and enough swearing to make your momma blush For readers 18 ARC kindly provided by MJM via NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewuotes were taken from the ARC version of the book and may change upon publication

    02212014 1 Star I knew immediately I wasn't going to like this one The dialogue fell flat for me I really don't like when women dialogue like men about sex They don't and to portray them as they do just sounds off The touches of humor didn't work either It didn't get any better for me as the book progressedMy husband said I had a puzzled look on my face when he saw me reading this one Wanted to know why? Well this one just doesn't come together The humor isn't humorous and then I read him some of the dialogue Hmm why are you reading that? Don't you have something else you can read? He's right Time to move onYou may like it better than I If so I'm very glad good for you Just didn't click for me In a huge way it didn't work For meHappy Reading ARC provided by the author via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

    45 Sweet n Sexy StarsWow what a GREAT read My only issue hence my half star deduction was for the main issue that had kept them in hiding I didn't buy it and thought it was absurd and the fact that t went on for THAT long without anyone knowing was complete BS lol sorry just calling it like I sa it Other than that issue I LOVED itThe storyline outside of the issue that I had I feel was very good the characters were great and I enjoyed them all immensely and the build up with the H and the h was HOT This was a great easy read flowed very well had some suspense and really HOT sex lol and it was simply the perfect afternoon in the sun readI loved Josh but Carissa stole the show for me I absolutely LOVED the fact that she took the initiative when the time was right I loved that she went with the flow of things throughout there was no wishy washy she went after what she wanted and I LOVED that about her I cannot wait to read by this author and MORE of this series

    This was a good sweet romancesolid debut for Molly McLainCarissa and Josh had a connection three years agothe timing off situations making it a fleeting momentonly it wasnt Time has passed and Josh is home from Afghanistan a sexy marine running his own successful contracting company Carissa moved on with his best friend and although it didnt really work out for them it still makes for a tense atmosphere every time Carissa and Josh are nearThis book had a lot of fate like moments It was as if the world was conspiring to make Josh and Carissa whole again From wedding party partners construction needs and small town meet upthese two could not get away from one another This was ok since neither could deny the connection between them When the tension was too much and libido won over the mind it was sesual and so right Now if only the rest of the world would get on the Josh and Carissa train all would be wellFor the most part this book was predictable From the finally moment when the panties dropped to the off story of vandalism at Josh's company everything was easily seen The angst factor was minimum and honestlythe whole bros over hos as the crux of drama was a bit weak I did take issue with Maddie and Dan and Mark's POVhonestly who cares what they hell they think Geeze way to not be supportive Oh wellJosh Hudson is enough to keep you reading He is very noble and good heartedhe is a Marine Josh and Carissa are pretty special and they make a good romantic tale
