Blurb : Hailed by Katee Robert as “an author to keep your eye on,” Jessica Lemmon brings her heartfelt storytelling to a sizzling novel about a steamy kiss—and a relationship that only gets hotter from there.

 

Cade:

 

I tried. I really tried. I should be out of this small town by now, finishing my law degree and partnering up with my buddies, but I couldn’t resist one last street race. Now I’m sidelined in the hospital, and while my injuries will heal, I’m not so sure my voice will return. What kind of attorney can’t talk? Yeah, exactly. I’m afraid that I won’t be able to come back from this . . . until Tasha Montgomery reawakens every competitive bone in my body.

 

Tasha:

 

I nearly watched Cade Wilson die on that lonely stretch of road. He’s damn lucky just to be alive, even if he doesn’t realize it. I know he’s destined for bigger and better things, but I don’t mind helping him get there as he relearns everything he took for granted. Cade’s a good student, a real perfectionist; I can tell how much his stutter bothers him. But when he lets his kisses do the talking, everything else disappears. And one day, maybe he’ll be able to tell me that he wants me—as much as I want him.

 

Review : Stumbling over the advanced reading copy of “Shut Up and Kiss Me” (Lost Boys #2) by Jessica Lemmon I thought it might be up my alley because of the plot that it described. Me liking the tortured bad boys guessed that Cade was a prime example of that species.

 

It was only after I received the book that I noticed on GR that in fact I had read the first book (Fighting for Devlin) in that series too AND I liked it . Interesting coincidence that indicates that this is an author I should look out for.

 

About the Plot, well the storyline is not too complicated and while I started reading I actually remembered parts of the previous book and the plot came back to me. Which is also a good sign given the amount of books I read in a year and the fact that it has been at least a year since I read the other book.

 

But even given the fact that it is not a complicated story it is still a very intriguing one with very interesting characters.

 

Unusual for me was the fact that even though I am partial to the tortured hero/bad boy It was this time Tasha – the female lead – that captured my attention. She was quite different from other leads, when placed in a certain situation.

 

I liked her spunk a lot and the way she stood up against everybody. Having said that – I have to say her father was a kind of strange figure with a difficult attitude.

 

Poor Cade … in some moments the poor guy felt like a scientific experiment but that was really part of the fun reading that book too. Yeah – so I liked the chemistry between them a lot …

 

And now – I will be sure to pay attention to the next book of this author for sure.
