I think my heart just stopped and then started again, as I take in the site of Brittan wearing boy short panties and a tight tee. A ghost of a smile creeps across my lips as her eyes land on mine.
Her mouth makes an O shape and she screams, “Holy shit, Jordon!” while trying to tug her very tiny tee down.
I kick my foot up on my knee and stretch my arms out along the bench seat as I relax against in the booth. Her all of a sudden shyness is adorable and making my dick stir to life in my jeans. I let out a low raspy laugh, “I don’t know why you’re all of a sudden all bashful. It’s not like I haven’t been up close and very personal with what’s under those adorable leopard panties of yours.”
Plopping down across from me she furrows her brows as she snatches the latte from in front of me, “Sorry I’m a little more self-conscious when I’m not drunk.”
“Well with a body like that, you should never feel self-conscious because I swear on this blueberry muffin,” I actually got a small smile out of her with that one, “You have the hottest body to ever grace this earth…and believe me I’ve seen my fair share. So you need to take my word for it.”
Breaking off a piece of her chocolate muffin she’s been nibbling on she chucks the chunk of muffin at my head and lets out the cutest little laugh, “You’re such a pig. But thanks, I guess.”
“You’re welcome. Now that you’re caffeinated is it safe to ask you about last night without being kicked in the baby makers and tossed out on my ass?” I ask as I sip my latte, and prepare myself for a Brittan bitch slap.
Brittan doesn’t speak for a few moments; she just stares down at her muffin while scooping whipped cream off of her latte and licking it off her finger.
Fuck. I am trying to be Mr. Concerned but it’s really hard when she is doing shit that’s making mehard.
Now I know why guys and girls aren’t normally ‘just friends.’
Where to even start with how I feel about this book, first of all thank you Danielle Jamie for the heart felt journey I was able to go on while reading Tempt My Heart and adding, yet another book boyfriend, in Jordan. He was purely a dream to read about and made my heart flutter. If you’re looking for a book that will require a box of tissues, then this is the book for you. I cried until my crying shirt (shirt I wear when I know a book will require it) was drenched so please heed the warning do not read at work!!!
The story starts with the love of Brittan and Cane. What a great story the two of them had and were so much in love and had such a great future in front of them, until 9/11 and Cane decided to serve his country and serve it well he did. After he was killed serving, Brittan’s life takes a drastic change and off goes the roller coaster life she now has, while still missing her “one” true love. She joins a band and they hit it big and she gets involved in the drug scene and has stint at drug rehab, when she gets out and rejoins the band is when she meets Jordan. Sparks fly between the two of them and they never get extinguished. She finds that sometimes in life you do get second chances at true love and Jordan is the one to bring that to her. He was once a typical rock guy who messed around his fair share, but he fell in love with Brittan and all that didn’t matter anymore. He never tried to take the place of Cane, but instead, embraced him and what he meant to Brittan. What a great guy!
I contacted Danielle as soon as I finished this book and could not stop gushing about how much I loved it and couldn’t wait for everyone to get their hands on this fab book. I hope we will get more from her with other characters from this story and SOON!!! Thank you for giving me this book to read for an honest review.
If you have not met Brittan and Jordan please do, but only with a box of tissues!
