I sat in my room at our family’s tattoo parlor, Forever Steel staring at the phone. I hadn’t stopped looking at the picture of this crazy, quirky, insanely beautiful blonde haired blue eyed siren that invaded the Jersey Shore a month ago.
Carly Smythe was not my type at all. She was a twenty year old student at Stanford University in California, smart as hell, and funny. The shit kicker was she was so awkwardly unaware of what any man with pulse could see, and that was that she was a damn heartbreaker with a body that made me hard the very first time I saw her.
She made me crazy, she snuck out to see me, and then avoided any sexual advances I made on her, until I finally kissed her, and I didn’t wait for an invitation either: I took those pouty little lips and made them mine.
Carly was also an avid reader of those books, you know “Mommy Porn.” So my game had to be stepped up. Who the hell am I kidding? She could see through my game immediately, and it didn’t have the same effect it did on every other girl I hooked up with. And she didn’t go running for the hills, either. I fell hard… and fast.
Abe (her cousin) knew all the shit that had gone down in my life for the past five and a half years and in order to make this work, which I wanted it to… I needed to set the record straight, put it all on the line, give her the 411, and let her decide if after everything, she still wanted to give it up to a guy like me. A tattooed, pierced, f-up, with a past that was sure to send any girl into a tail spin. She was not any girl, she was…different.

review

~~ 3.5 Stars ~~

This is the first book I have ever read by M.J. Fields.  I found this book very interesting and really did enjoy the book.  I found that once I started this book I had trouble putting it down.  With that said I did find this book to be slightly confusing at times.  I found that the timeframe tended to jump without smoothness.  Plus it seems that some of the conversations or situations weren’t complete.  It was kind of like the sentences weren’t always complete thoughts and that is what lead to my confusion.  Maybe this is just the writing style of M.J. Fields, I wouldn’t say that it is bad, just one I am not used to.  I will say that the confused state I was in at times did slightly deter me from fully being engrossed in the story.  With that said, I will most likely continue on with this series, because I really did enjoy this storyline and characters.  I would like to see what happens with the other brothers.  This was a fairly quick read, like I said even though I got confused at times, I still had trouble putting it down.  I will say that if you like a book that is a cat and mouse, or push and pull type story, this is the one for you.  I personally would’ve liked to see the couple together more.

As I said earlier I really did like the characters in this story.  Carly and Jase were really kind of great together.  I enjoyed their weird banter.  Their biggest problem was communication.  They really had a hard time talking to each other without one or both getting mad and then walking away.  Jase was full of secrets, I guessed most of them before they were revealed, but every time a secret was about to be revealed, Jase would pull away from Carly which meant he stopped talking to her and pushed her away.  I have to say, I don’t blame Carly for her attitude towards him a lot of the times.  Carly was a 20 year old virgin who lived with her mom in California, but still had to go visit her dad in New Jersey.  She was kind of a loner, almost sheltered in  a way.  She only hung out with her mom and the book club.  That is until she visits her cousin Abe and meets Jase.  Jase breaks her out her shell.  I will say Carly was a strong and stubborn person.  I loved that she didn’t let Jase just walk all over her.  She definitely put him in his place quite a few times.  I will say that it was great watching both Carly and Jase grow as this book went on.  With all the crap that happened between them I think they came out stronger and better in the end.

As for the brothers…..I have to say that even though they could be pretty crass, I loved them all.  I am looking forward to reading their own stories.

Would I recommend this book to people…..YES.

If you are looking for that quick paced, push and pull ( sexual tension ) type love story, then this is the one for you.

about-the-author
I am very new self published writer,and had no clue what I was getting into, still don’t—but I like it!
My imagination became apparent at age three. Sigma was my very first (imaginary) boyfriend. He lived about fifteen miles from my family’s farm. I took him chicken noodle soup every night on one of our snowmobiles, regardless of the season. Apparently he was very ill and “Thank God” I was able to care for him.
At eight my love for writing blossomed. My cousins and I (of course I was the president) wrote a newsletter and sold it to our family members.
Years later I decided to put it back into print to entertain my cousin on an aircraft carrier on 9/11 and very far away from home during a scary time for our country, (protecting our butts).
Fast forward to 2012. I read 50 shades and thought, I wanna do that!
I have two complete series The Love Series, and Wrapped and two new series Burning Souls and Men of Steel. Thirteen books in sixteen months. CrAzY and wonderful.
I love love! (I would love to reference a Pink song here but I will save my inappropriateness for my books.
I enjoy watching people grow and change with self realization and moments of clarity that sneak up behind you and smack you in the head. I love people and have always been able to see both sides of a story. Each person that comes into our life leaves us with something it is what we choose to do with it that helps us grow.
I live in central New York in the middle of nowhere and am surrounded by family and friend. I ran a small business out of my home and have recently closed my door to pursue this dream full time. I spend time writing and doing the typical Mommy things. Our house is full of pets, friends, and noise ninety percent of the time. I would have it no other way.
I love people,music, laughter, hugs, books, and talking about books.
I’m very excited to share that I have recently signed and am now represented by with Marissa Corvisiero.
