Pants Cafe Series…
It Only Takes One
Hot Rock Star To Ruin Your Life…
The youngest woman to ever sit on the bench, the
Honorable Sarah Rae Alma has busted her butt to get where she is. No fun. No
distractions. And definitely no bad boys. In fact, she takes a certain pleasure
in crushing their souls—yes, she has her reasons.
So when rock-n-roll’s most famous bad boy, the
legendary Colton Young, enters her court, looking hotter than sin and smugger
than hell, she’s just itching to serve a little justice.
But Sarah’s about to make the biggest mistake of
her life. And her fate will land squarely in the hands of the world’s most
notorious rock star rebel.

 

Will he crush her? Or will he tempt her to take a
walk on the wild side?

Feeling woozy, Sarah took her seat behind her immaculate desk in her pristine office—floor-to-ceiling bookshelf on one side, big window on the other, walls covered in her degrees and recognitions for public service—all overlooking the back alleyway of the building.

 

Colt’s lawyer entered her chamber first, followed by the DA, who quickly informed her about a video that had just come out. It showed that Colton Young had been falsely accused of grabbing one of the officers’ guns and striking him in the face.

 

The DA tapped on his phone and showed the screen to Sarah. “The video does show, however, that Colton Young urinated in public and relieved himself on the other officer’s leg.” The video looked to be filmed from behind a pile of boxes in a back alley, possibly behind a restaurant or something. How lucky. Maybe a fan had been following him.

 

“Well,” Sarah said, lacing her fingers together on top of her desk, “this certainly changes things.” No trial. Yes! She held back the urge to do a victory tap dance. Not that she could tap dance.

 

“We’ll be dismissing the felony charges,” said the DA, “but the defendant is a public figure and must be held accountable for his actions against the other officer. Especially in light of his track record.”

 

He referred to Colton’s auto theft trial from three months ago. The jury found him innocent after the owner of the vehicle came forward, claiming he’d been drunk and had forgotten that he’d actually given Colt permission to borrow the car. Wanting to make a name for himself, the DA tried to make the charges stick by discrediting the owner of the car, who’d contradicted himself in the police report. A big fail. The jury could only find Colton Young guilty of wrecking a tree on public property, for which Sarah sentenced Mr. Young to pay a small fine. All this meant that the DA wasn’t going to let this go.

 

The DA went on, “We want to continue with the trial and ensure justice is served for the fine people of California, who are tired of the entitled few getting away with this kind of illegal behavior.”

 

Sarah wanted to roll her eyes. This guy acted like he was on TV, trying to impress the world. Idiot. Who had time for showboating? Their courtrooms were bogged down with so many cases—murders, rape, drug charges—it would be a waste of taxpayer dollars to hold a juried trial for a misdemeanor moistening of an officer’s pant leg, famous defendant or not. Especially when one policeman had brought false charges under very suspicious circumstances, a much, much bigger issue for the DA to spend his time on.

 

Sarah looked at the DA. “While I am a devoted supporter of our police force, I suggest you do the world a favor and drop all charges.” In all likelihood, the charges wouldn’t stick anyway. Colton Young looked sauced and the jury would find said peeing infraction an accident.

 

“I can’t do that,” replied the DA. “It sends the wrong message to the public.”

 

So he’s worried about looking weak. Some days the politics of this job drove her insane. They were here for one thing and one thing only: to serve justice.

 

Sarah looked at Colt’s lawyer, a very handsome man, and noticed he looked familiar. She’d probably had him in her court before. “Well?”

 

He gave her a nod. “I’ll speak to Mr. Young. He’ll be changing his plea to guilty.”

 

Strange. “Don’t you want to talk to your client—”

 

“No. My client will plead guilty.”

 

Normally, the defendant’s lawyer would want to discuss the situation with their client. On the other hand, the sooner this ended, the better. She wouldn’t have to stare at Mr. Hotti-hotastic in his smokin’ hot leather pants for a week and risk looking like an idiot—correction—a bigger idiot. The public would be served by eliminating a costly trial. Mr. DA would feel like he’d served his fat ego. Everyone would win.

 

“Excellent.” She looked at her watch. “We’ll reconvene in five minutes.”

 

The two attorneys left and Sarah plopped her forehead down on her desk. Thank God. All she needed to do now was accept Colt’s plea without fucking that up, and then she could worry about sentencing in three or four weeks.

 

God, what was all that in there? I can’t stand his type. And she hated pompous jerks who reeked of entitlement even more. But that man…that man…

 

She would never forget the first time she’d seen Colton back in college, when he had his first hit record. Her roommate kept playing this song of his—“A Love Song”—about a man who kept trying to find love, but every woman who walked into his life refused to see the real him.

 

You want the money

 

You want the fame

How about wanting me, baby?

 

After hearing the song five hundred times, Sarah began plotting to make sure her roomie, Melissa, and that damned boom box disappeared. Quicksand. Deep well. Accidental fire. She’d go mad if she had to hear that tune one more goddamned time!

 

And then it happened.

 

Sarah caught a glimpse of Colton Young in a music video. She remembered being unable to look away. Those sensual lips, those hazel eyes. She’d never seen a man like that. And the way he moved those hips and that body? So sexy. So confident. A complete badass.

 

Sarah like. Sarah want. Sarah neeeed…

 

Which was why she’d remained a fan all these years until he walked into her courtroom a few months ago for that auto-theft case. His empty gaze and lack of emotion instantly shook her. He didn’t seem to care about anything around him or anyone.

 

Not at all the passionate alpha stud I thought him to be. Still, she couldn’t help getting all flustered in his presence—a mental hangover from years of being a huge fan.

 

Sarah cringed, resenting the effect he had on her. I’m going to enjoy the hell out of throwing him in jail for two months. Wait, make it three. Because regardless of the current situation, Colton Young was not innocent. He’d been given every chance to live a very privileged life. He had the sort of money and opportunities given only to a handful. Yet he wanted to piss it away—literally—by acting like a lawless rebel and getting arrested every few months.

 

Yes, Colton Young waved the bad-boy flag high in the air. And he definitely fell into her “throw the full book at him” category.

 

Hot or not. She would serve justice and make that man cry.

Book Review: WHISPER OF LOVE by Melissa Foster #BookReview @TastyBookTours @Melissa_Foster

For the first time in years, Nash wants to let a woman into his world, 
but while his loss made him stronger, that strength came at a price.
WHISPER OF LOVE
The Bradens – Peaceful Harbor, MD #5
Melissa Foster
Releasing Feb 22, 2017
World Literary Press

 

Tempest Braden adores her family and her small hometown, but sometimes too much of a good thing can be confining. At almost thirty, having watched most of her siblings find true love, she’s anxious to experience her own happily ever after, and the move to Pleasant Hill, Maryland, is just the change she needs. When she rents a room from ruggedly handsome, and closed-off, artist Nash Morgan and his adorable son, Phillip, she thinks she’s found a little slice of heaven on the outskirts of town, where she can concentrate on building her business. That is, if she can ignore the undeniable heat between her and the sinfully hot single father.

When Nash bought his farmette, he had one goal in mind—to provide a loving, stable home for his son. He never imagined he’d be raising Phillip alone, or renting out a room to keep their heads above water. Then again, he never imagined losing his brother, or spending two years sailing around the world with parents who seemed to forget one son was still alive. 

Sparks fly from the moment Tempest moves in, and her positive energy and inquisitive nature brings new life into Nash and Phillip’s quiet, confined world. For the first time in years, Nash wants to let a woman into his world, but while his loss made him stronger, that strength came at a price, leaving him walled off and wary of opening his heart again.

Every time I read a new book from Melissa Foster, I am amazed. She seems to come up with so many fantastic stories.  This story is about Tempest and Nash.

First of all, I love when the author adds a sweet child to the story. I love kids and I really felt the love here. This story is written so well and just makes me want to be there. I can picture it all.

Tempest has moved away from Peaceful Harbor to try to make it on her own, of course she is living with her cousin Jillian. Jillian doesn’t sleep and Tempest needs her sleep. I can relate I need my sleep. Anyway, she decides to find a new place to live and saw an ad for a room for rent. Of course, Jillian says to wait till her cousins can go along to check it all out. But Tempest decided to meet up with this man offering his room without her cousins.

Nash and his young son live on a small farmette, they have chickens and goats. His son Phillip who is 3 follows his dad and helps out. To make a living Nash builds furniture but he is really an awesome artist. He has had some tragedy in his life but right now his life is focus on Phillip. Nash wanted to rent the room to get some more income to live on. He didn’t want any strange type people because he did have his young son.

Tempest went to check out the farmette and met Nash and his adorable son.  Tempest loved it there and loved how Nash treated his son. She could tell he was a very loving and protector of his son.

The story is awesome, really worth reading. The romance is there, the chemistry is there. Most important the love is there. I had goosebumps and felt the love throughout this story. There is such much in this story. I can also relate to the tragedy that Nash had to endure.

This is a 5 star book.

There is romance, lots of sweet moments, and steamy hot sex. A few swear words.

I want to thank Tasty booktours, the author Melissa Foster and Netgalley for letting me read this book and to review.

As LA’s
hottest up-and-coming chef, Alexa Montoya is known for her ruby red lipstick,
award-winning arroz con pollo and a penchant for falling for the wrong kind of
men. And when a confrontation with a loser ex-boyfriend lands her in some legal
trouble, she’s forced to call her long-time friend, Dante Perez, to bail her
out. Only this time, Dante seems different, somehow. More gorgeous, more sexy,
more…mouthwateringly irresistible. Suddenly she’s tempted to give the lawyer
much more than a simple thank you…
Dante is tired of seeing Alexa with guys who only know how to steal her money
and break her heart. He’s watched–and waited for–her long enough. Helping
with her legal situation will finally give him a chance to win her over for
good. His plan? He’ll seduce her into finally believing that there’s something
deliciously right between them…

Despite their chemistry, Alexa can’t trust that Dante won’t leave. But Dante
knows how to win a case. And he’ll do whatever it takes to convince Alexa that
she’ll always leave him hungry for more…

“It’s just a massage, Alexa,” he said with a smirk. “Or do you not think you can handle it? I know I can.”

A challenge had been issued—triggering the reaction to prove him wrong. He knew her so well.

“I can totally handle it,” she said as she scooted her ass to the edge of the couch and turned around.

He sighed. “That’s not going to work. Stop being silly and let me do this right.” His hands gripped her arms, and he pulled her closer to him as he sank back into the corner of the couch and positioned her between his legs. “There. That’s better.”

It was better. It was also dangerous.

Her heart raced when his fingers rested on the tops of her shoulders. Gently, he began to squeeze and knead the taut muscles and nerves. His touch burned through the thin fabric of her T-shirt, and she swallowed her breath.

“You are tight,” he murmured as he spread his fingers up and down her arms and then back up to her shoulders.

It felt good. No, better than good. So much better than good.

“Mmm,” she mumbled.

“Just relax. Let all the tension melt away.”

She closed her eyes and leaned farther back until she was totally resting against his broad chest. With one deep breath, she inhaled his scent: woodsy, clean, manly. Her skin heated up a million degrees in response.

He deepened the pressure, and she melted even more.

“Oh, yes,” she moaned at the mix of pleasure and pain. His expert fingers worked the tightness steadily, and it began to dissolve into desire. It had been so long since he’d touched her like this. God, it felt amazing.

“Just like that,” she said on a sigh. “Please. Don’t stop.”

She felt him move behind her until his breath was hot against her ear. “Jesus Christ, Alexa,” he rasped.

A hardness poked against her hip, and she realized she wasn’t the only one on fire. Her hands moved from her own lap to his thighs, and she dug into the fabric of his pants. His breathing became more ragged, and she knew this was no longer just a massage.

He slid his fingers down her arms again, but this time they brushed the sides of her breasts. Her own breath hitched, and her nipples pebbled in response.

That was it. She was gone.

Meet
the Kincade brothers: they’ll do what it takes to protect their legacy–but
what happens when love gets in the way?
Declan
Kincade has spent so much time chasing success he’s almost forgotten how to
just live. Lately though, his all-business routine has been thrown into
disarray. Brooke Hastings is the best employee Dec’s ever had: polished,
capable, and intelligent. After four years, he’s just realized that she’s also
smoking hot. But their working relationship is too valuable to stake on a
fling, no matter how mind-bendingly pleasurable it promises to be.
What’s worse than never meeting the right man? Finding him, and then working
side-by-side every day while he remains absolutely blind to your existence.
That is, until one temptation-packed road-trip changes everything. Teaching her
gorgeous, driven boss how to cut loose and have fun is the toughest challenge
Brooke’s ever faced. But it’s one that could give both of them exactly what
they need, if Dec will take a chance on a perfect—and perfectly
unexpected—love.

The sunlight caught like spun gold in the wavy strands of her hair. He liked that her face was makeup free, but mostly he liked that she didn’t need a mask to feel confident. Not that he ever planned to date Brooke, but he’d dated a lot of women who’d refused to leave the house until their makeup had been perfectly applied and every hair was in place.

In his mind, all that preparation took away an opportunity for spontaneity. With his busy schedule, sometimes that’s all he could manage—a last minute invite. Brooke had so much sexy going on she didn’t need all that stuff. And today she’d pretty much proved that she was game for the whole spur-of-the-moment thing. Impressive.

 “How many business lunches and dinners have I sat through with you, Mr. Kincade?”

 He shrugged. “Too many to count.”

 “Bingo.” She pointed. “And do you know what you order almost each and every time?”

 “No.”

 “Seared ahi.”

 “And the problem with that is?”

 “Boring.”

 “I like ahi.”

 “Good for you. But why not expand your horizons? Eating the same old same old every day is like having missionary sex every time the mood strikes.”

 And why did she need to bring that up? Because his imagination definitely didn’t need a push in that direction.

 “Shake things up.” She waved her hands upward like she was about to take flight. “Be daring. Live a little.”

 Damn she was animated. How the hell did someone get like that?

 “I’m happy with things the way they are.”

 “Are you really?” As she leaned into the table, the unyielding fabric of that tight white tank top across her breasts dominated his attention.

 He didn’t respond.

 Couldn’t.

 He was too . . . distracted.

 “You know what they say; all work and no play . . .” she said with a shrug, leaving the remainder of that statement hanging like a noose.

 “So you’re saying that eating fish tacos is suddenly going to shake things up in my life?”

 “Breaking your same old song and dance routine will. After you’ve opened up the door, anything can happen. Aren’t you the least bit curious?”

 The server interrupted them to deliver a large plate of steaming soft tacos, bowls of salsa and sour cream, and two giant froufrou drinks with slices of pineapple and maraschino cherries speared by pink umbrellas.

 Oh hell no.

 He was not going to drink something that would immediately revoke his man card. But when Brooke plucked the cherry from her glass, dangled it in the air, and captured it with her tongue, he had second thoughts. By the time she settled the bright pink straw between the soft cushion of her lips and sucked the orange frothy drink into her mouth, he figured he’d be game for just about any damn thing. As long as he could watch her do that all day long.
