❝ Holy hell! Fuck a duck and shit on a goldfish cracker! My fingers grip the blanket beside my naked body as Mason and his gloriously talented tongue continues to attack my wet pussy. Yes! I just said the word I hate, but right now at this very moment that is what it is. A pussy! Even though I had one orgasm already, he is working on number two. Thank you men everywhere who love to do this for a woman. What have I been missing? Why didn’t I ever let myself do this before with Ollie? Oh fuck him. He has nothing on this sexy guy between my thighs. I feel the same tension in my body that I did a few moments ago start to build. The lapping of his tongue as he tells me how beautiful and sexy I am is addicting. If death is going to knock on my door, then please let me die after this next orgasm. Biting my lip, my hips thrust up on their own because I have lost all control of my body tonight. My moans even sound sexy to me, like I’m made to do this in life. Maybe I can be a voice over in a porno one day. “Ahhh!” His finger slowly enters me as he sucks my clit and I lose my shit. My body thrashes against his mouth and I might have possibly ripped some of his hair out. But I can’t care at the moment because I’m once again in sex Heaven as I yell his name until I feel relaxed and like a marshmallow. “Say it again.” His voice is close and the shift of the mattress causes me to open my eyes. “Say what?” He’s above me again and the feel of his bare chest against my sweat covered one is glorious. Returning his smile, I run my finger over his full lips and watch as he sucks it into his mouth. “My name. Say my name again.” He’s so easy to please. “Mason,” I whisper. “Mason. Please make love to me.” I feel his shiver or maybe it’s mine. I meant to say fuck me, but I realize that Mason is better than just a fuck. He’s a guy who will devote his whole heart into anything he does and sex is one of them. He’s very thorough and ready to conquer whatever quest he’s on. Before I know it he’s nestled between my thighs and I feel his mouth on my neck and the head of his dick against my opening. Instead of just diving in, he kisses his way down to my breast before returning to my mouth. Squirming under his weight, I wrap my legs around him, desperate for him to enter me. Torture is the only term I can come up with. He just continues to assault my mouth and breasts affectionately. “Damn it, Mason. You’re killing me.” My words come out in quick pants because the feel of his teeth scraping across my sensitive nipple is achingly wonderful. He comes up and smiles again before he kisses me heatedly, doing all the things he just performed between my thighs to my mouth. Then he plunges into me and I moan from the feel of him.❞


Well this was another delightfully surprising series I didn't even know existed. While reading, I got the impression that there was something I was missing from the secondary charters, Tru and Jax. Then I find out that there was a book before this one called Learning to Live, which was Tru and Jax's story. Oh, and there is still more books to come in this series. The story told in this book is the relationship of Jazz and Mason. Mason was so sweet he could have given you a serious tooth ache. Despite the relationship being one-sided at first, with Mason loving and fawning over Jazz secretly from a far, Jazz soon comes to meet an unsuspecting new sexy Mason she never knew existed. This is a solid passionate story of Jazz and Mason's journey to find love in spite of all the obstacles thrown their way in the process.

"Geez. He's becoming like fuckably sexy to me. Okay? Every time we're alone I just want to...to. Shit, I don't know. Fuck him." -Jazz

Jazz is a student struggling to find her place in life. Unfortunately, she tries to find it in all the wrong places. She has an affair with her professor, whom she thought was just hiding their relationship because of the student/teacher social taboo. Little did she know that he was hiding for more reasons than that. He was married and had children of his own. She came across these details while hiding in his car attempting to surprise him with the news that she herself was pregnant with his child. She got the surprise of a lifetime that threw her world upside down. Instead of getting her happily ever after with the man she loved, she was to become a single mom. Not the fair tale ending one would hope for. Now she has the unbearable task of telling her family the disappointing news. Something she dreaded more than being alone. Mason was a hard working, honorable, and pretty timid guy. He held the burden of being the man of the family, since he didn't have a father in the picture and his mom needed help with his autistic sister. He was friends with Jazz's brother Jax, and had been there for her as if they were all family. The timid Mason shocked not only Jazz, but the rest of the family by declaring he was the father of Jazz's baby.

"So I'll be her shoulder. I'll be her warmth. And I hope one day I can be her hero." -Mason

Jazz had no idea why Mason would do this unbelievably stupid selfless deed. She eventually reluctantly gives in and accepts his help. They develop a stronger bond that evokes some surprising sexual tension between the two. It is nothing new to Mason of course, but Jazz finds herself confused as she becomes overwhelmed with thoughts of attacking him with her womanly bits. She decides that it must just be her hormones running a muck and devises the ol' friends with benefits plan. This plan seems to back fire, as the little green monster of jealousy rears it's ugly head when his ex fling, Chanda, shows she is still into him. Jazz's feelings escalate more towards the love side due to Mason's faultless devotion to her and the baby that isn't even his. Jazz has her own demons of insecurity that stem from her two open heart surgeries when she was just a baby. She struggles to feel beautiful because of the scars left behind. Mason is there to show her just how truly beautiful he thinks she is. The sexual tension mixed with the undeniable dedicated love that they have for each other....makes for a great mix of passion and devotion.

"I'm terrified that last night was a onetime deal, and I seriously think I'll go fucking insane if that's the case. I mean, she's like my drug now and for her to just take it away after months of wanting will kill me."- Mason

Chanda is not the only wrench that tries to force her way in to derail their smooth flowing machine. Jazz's ex lover, professor douche bag, is suddenly struck with a determination to become a part of his baby's life. The lengths that he goes to are far beyond logical or humanly sane for that matter. Other factors also will themselves to destroy the future that looked so bright for them. Can they conquer these mounting obstacles to finally reach their happy future? Or will they become too trampled to pick up all the pieces?

"The only thing bad for me is you not loving me or you trying to leave me. So don't you ever pull that shit again? Because we're yours and I would never hurt you." -Jazz

This story has action, heart ache, and inspiring soul-mate passion. I enjoyed the development of Jazz and Mason's connection. The only thing that tended to bug me a bit, was that at times it gave off a bit  of an immature vibe. They are in college so it's fitting the majority of the time, but at certain points it was a little too much.  Despite the occasional tiny eye rolls it caused here and there, it didn't take away from the overall story. I enjoyed the journey and the characters. They both find ways to heal each other and finally become whole. The epilogue gives you a sneak peek into the next story in the series. Way to make a girl sizzle with the hot mysterious alpha rock star, Lyric. Ms. Cole definitely left me wanting more. I recommend this book and this series to my fellow readers. I will be on the look out for the next book.

3.5 out of 5 Love Inspiring, Passionately Resilient Stars!

My name is Robin and I live in Alabama. I grew up an army brat and traveled a lot until we finally settled down along the Gulf Coast when I was 4. My husband is 9 years younger so I guess that makes me a COUGAR. I have a little girl who is 9 and is blind as well as autistic. My life is not boring with them two in it. Believe me.
I have always loved creating and I would constantly draw on my walls. I love painting and reading. Writing is something I wanted to do but didn't think I could, until I woke up at three a.m. a few months back and started writing. Life has a way of throwing rocks at you and putting cracks in your soul. Either you can duck and cover or you can make something beautiful from the cracks.
After that, the story took over. Even though some pieces of my life experience are within it, it is Tru and Jax’s story now. I have truly fell in love with this story and hope you all do too.
