Take Me Home Tonight - Cover


A rocker gets a taste of unexpected passion in the latest red-hot Rock Star Romance from the award-winning author of I Want You to Want Me.
Calix Bourbon might seem like a free spirit, but that’s all a front. In reality he’s just trying to keep his fractured family together while working as a session musician. When Blue Fire hires him to replace their keyboardist, Calix is determined to make the most of the opportunity—but he can’t help being distracted by the band’s sexy personal chef.
Mimi’s temporary gig is great, but she has her heart set on auditioning for a televised cooking show. There’s just one problem: she only has a week to acquire the skills necessary to survive the competition. Luckily, the band’s new keyboard player can teach her exactly what she needs, in the kitchen and in the bedroom…

Exclusive Excerpt
She started to pull away from him, but the loss of her touch made him tighten his grip. When he didn’t let go, she lifted her head to look at him.
They’d never been this close. Close enough to see the pale nick of a scar right at her cheek bone, that expressive mouth, and the question in her eyes. Need burned through him, sending electrical impulses down his spine and through his dick. He needed her bare, warm skin against his. Needed the wet heat of her mouth, the slick tangle of her tongue. He needed…oh, fuck him.
His mouth settled over hers, and sparks fired in his blood. Her body turned toward him, fingers gripping the back of his shirt. The hunger took over, and he swept his tongue across her lips, licking inside her mouth.
With a sharp intake of breath, she was kissing him back. And, holy fuck, this wasn’t some gentle exploration. This was mouth-fucking.
She clutched the back of his neck, her tongue stroking his, and raw desire streaked though him, setting him on fire.
Keeping his arm firmly around her waist, he set her down. But if she thought he was letting her go—not a chance. He just repositioned her so he could lift her against the wall and spread those legs around his hips. Nothing could stop his body from pressing into her and taking that mouth he’d fantasized about for months.
Her tits, her hands, the way she writhed against him, made him frenzied. “Jesus, Mimi.” And then she was making noises, hot, hungry purrs deep in her throat. He ground his cock against her stomach. Heat blistered through him.
“God.” The back of her head hit the wall, and she fought to pull her legs out of his grip.
It took him a moment to shift gears, but he slowly lowered her to the floor. She looked as shaken as he felt. His knees barely supported him, so he braced both arms against the wall to hold himself up.
He needed a moment to cool down. Jesus, he’d never had a kiss like that.

Rating: ★★★★
Reviewer: Melyssa
I’ve never had the pleasure of reading this author before, but now that we’re all said and done with this story, she’s definitely one I’d like to check out more from in the future (as well as previous released books).

Now before I go into my thoughts on this story, it should be said that while this book does stand as part of a series, it does pertain to a different couple, much like the two before it (I’ve come to learn since taking the story on) and for this reader, having no real background on these characters going in, I can safely say that you don’t need the other two stories to follow along with this one. But I’m sure it can’t hurt.

I pulled more than just a romance from this story. I pulled more than just a rock star romance from this. In fact, while I did love that aspect to this story, and the growth and progression that Calix and Mimi take in order to reach the ending that works best for them, both together and individually, I was more taken by the family aspect here.

The bond was very real here. The emotion very raw, especially as it pertains to Calix’s family. I did manage to feel quite a lot as it pertained to Mimi’s too and I think a lot of that in the beginning read very real as well, but the ultimate bond was with his. His sister and brother had me in stitches right from the beginning and the love that was present there, even though they’d been crippled by tragedy was strong, very alive and beautiful. You could tell how they felt about one another, feel it even and moving away from the romantic angle here, that is going to stick with me for a very long time.

But it wasn’t just the family that the emotion was thick with. It was Calix and Mimi too, and the slow progression into them finally giving into what started as an attraction and became something more, was very well done. It wasn’t just dropped on us quickly and it wasn’t an easy ride to happiness by any means and those are the kinds of stories, especially ones of the romantic variety, that I love most.

Both of them were more than the sum of their parts and it was nice seeing that come to life. Mimi wasn’t just a girl wanting to break free of her father and prove herself and Calix wasn’t just a guy in a band. They were very real, very vibrant people with so much to give once their walls were inevitably broken down and I’m glad that I took the chance and got to see that.

If you’re looking for a story that’s not quite like the others, one that stands out and doesn’t scrimp on the emotion, this one may be the one for you.

My thanks to the author and all others involved for letting me read this story before its official release. It was a journey (with all the characters) that I’m glad I took.
