Review: Shut Up and Kiss Me by Jessica Lemmon

Jessica Lemmon’s heartfelt Lost Boys series returns as a steamy kiss stirs things up between a cocky college boy and the girl who won’t give him the time of day.

Caden Wilson is away at school chasing a bright future when a car accident rattles his brain and takes his voice away. Now he’s living at home again, faced with the prospect of losing his speech forever. Worse, his therapist just so happens to be a girl he knows... and despises. But as her gentle touch breaks down his barriers, Cade can’t deny feeling the heat.

Tasha Montgomery nearly watched Cade die on that lonely stretch of road. She knows how lucky he is just to be alive, and how grateful he should be that she’s helping him. But he doesn’t need words to express his distaste for her. Which is why Tasha’s caught off-guard when Cade lets his kiss do the talking—and puts a smile on both their faces.

Before long, Tasha’s falling hard. She just hopes that, once he’s recovered, Cade has the courage to speak up for the promises their bodies have made.

Kristine's Thoughts:

** I received an advanced readers copy from Loveswept via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!**

Shut Up and Kiss Me is the second book in the Lost Boys series but it can be read as a stand alone. In fact, I thought this book was a lot better than the first in the series.

The storyline was really cute. Tasha attempted to help Cade recover his speech after his accident left him with a stutter that stopped him from speaking at all. Of course, Cade refused and resisted her help at all costs, not wanting to be her charity case. It was no surprise that there was an underlying attraction on both sides which then lead to an unconventional and somewhat inappropriate method of treatment and therapy. Perhaps not the most original storyline but cute as hell and well delivered.

I really, really liked both Cade and Tasha. I was a little surprised by this because I was not a fan of Cade at all in Fighting for Devlin. It really is interesting how a different perspective and insight can change your opinion on someone. He was damaged but sexy and drool worthy in a bad boy kind of way. Tasha on the other hand was sweet, caring and committed to helping Cade at all costs. I wanted them to find their way to each other and I was routing for them the entire time.

Every good romance has its angst, complications and misunderstandings and Shut Up and Kiss Me was no exception. There were plenty of factors working against Cade and Tasha that made their path difficult. There was also enough heat to burn up the pages and satisfy readers who enjoy a little between the sheets action.

As I stated above, I enjoyed this book even more than the first so it leaves me quite excited to see what comes next. This book was pure entertainment that satisfied all of my romance needs in a book.
