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.

Hi Jeri and Angie,
Sorry! Just seeing this. Yes, Cade's book is being released December 6, 2016. The reason behind it is because the publisher wanted to release Forgotten Promises first (a standalone), and then my Billionaire Bad Boys schedule took up the summer/fall. I hope Cade and Tasha are worth the wait for you! Thank you for the question.(less)

Cade Wilson is a Law student who has dreams in life but when a street race gone bad, he suffered with numerous physical injuries. One thing he needs to work on is his speech. He tends to stutter, it frustrates him and feels less confident. His father decided to hire Tasha Montgomery to help him recover. Her determination, patience and dedication as a Physical Therapist is admirable. Though Speech Therapy isn't her specialt

The second book in the Lost Boys series by Jessica Lemmon features two new main characters whom we meet in book one, Fighting for Devlin. I read this story on the heels of book one and found it just as entertaining.

I am going to be in the minority here, I did not like this book. I almost threw in the towel and didn't finish it. Sex cures everything by the way.

Shallow...totally shallow characters. I didn't like Tasha at all. Doormat city with daddy issues. She let everyone treat her like crap and just turn around and say oh well. Wanted to be independent in one breath but taking everything from her dad. She did represent the little rich girl the Cade accused her of being. Yuk...

I mentioned in my Instagram post before, it has been such a long time since I read a story about a man having difficulties with his speech. Last time I read one was years ago, with Colleen Hoover's Maybe Someday, which is my all-time favorite book by CoHo. Ridge and Sydney's unforgettable romance got me speechless in the end.

We all remember Cade & Tasha from Devlin’s book. You don’t have to read the first book to understand what’s going on here – but you should. ☺ Devlin’s a really great guy! He’s the half-brother of our darling Cade.

Cade’s been in a car accident at the end of the last book, and now he’s still trying to deal with his new life.
He’s no longer studying to be a lawyer. He’s living on his dad’s couch and bussing tables at his brother’s restaurant.

Wow, Shut Up and Kiss Me by Jessica Lemmon was such a powerful book in that one night changed both of these characters lives forever. I'm always intrigued by romances where they couple has a less than stellar history and that's the case in this book, but one puts that aside in the other's time of need and out of that comes a friendship and more.

Cade and Tasha were interesting. The idea that the hero is not only recovering from an injury that hampers his ability to communicate but that the injury has shown him that he wants to travel a complete different path in his life puts the characters and the relationship into a different light, and it feels like a fresh and different story.

Jessica Lemmon is a favorite of mine for the characters she writes. They are interesting and engaging

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.

Although this book was an easy read with a lighthearted plot, it wasn't as I expected. In the past I have really enjoyed Jessica Lemmon's work, but this book just fell short. The plot was told from duel perspective- Cade and Tasha- and I didn't really hear a distinct voice between them. Instead, the characters sounded too similar and at times I forgot who was talking.

Cade Wilson is the perfect mix of bad boy/good guy. Until a street race left him injured, he was a law student with a plan. He is recovering from his physical injuries and has had time to reevaluate things. The accident left him with a speech problem that includes a stutter. He hasn't exactly been the ideal patient. His Dad hires Tasha Montgomery, a friend and student working towards her physical therapy degree since Cade seems to at least connect with her.

Dear Reader,

Silver-tongued, cocky, confident Caden Wilson has a problem. His tongue. Oh, he knows how to use it, but see, he just can't. A street-racing accident has stolen his voice, and there is only one friend who has stuck around to help him figure out why he can't talk without tripping over his palate. And, of course, it's the one girl he'd rubbed the wrong way once before in his past.

While this is book two in the series, you don't need to read book one first. Although, it does help to have some background information on the characters.

Then when she hears he's chased off multiple speech therapists, she tries to help. Only she is going to school to be a physical therapist, not speech. It's worth a try, though. She

An accident caused him an injury that makes it so that he has to relearn how to talk. This is an alpha man, who had a silver tongue, and now he has a difficult time getting the words out. He had a specific goal in life and now that has changed. This couple has a connection that neither can avoid for long. He's broken and only her brand of love and care can fix him. They have some strong sexual chemistry that comes off the pages and are written well. This was an enjoyable read.
