This book can be read as a standalone but it is a continuation of characters we meet in Forever Red.

Mike has had feelings for Lia almost all his life and after she marries his best friend and employer, he decides to move and take a job as security at a country bar. It’s here that Lia finds him again after months of absence and asks him to take on the security for her new client, Molly.

Molly is a rising country singer and deemed the bad girl of country. Labelled a slut by false rumours spread i

Ahhh!! YEEESSSSS!!! Mike’s story! I was so excited to read this book. I loved Forever Red, Nate and Lia’s story, and so wanted for Mike to get his own. And Ms. Adams has answered those prayers!

We met both Mike and Molly in the first book. Mike is Lia and Nate’s best friend, and head of Nate’s security. Molly was a young country star, just starting out when Nate took her under his wing.

After Nate and Lia got married, Mike had a hard time so he left the tour. He couldn’t be around them every day,

Simple is boring...

Hello, my name is Rosa, and I'm a 'Bama Boys addict. It all started when I saw this sexy tattooed bad boy on the cover of a book. I couldn't resist the temptation. They pulled me under, convincing me that they were more important than my house work or my sleep. Once I started, I couldn't stop. Don't worry though, I don't need intervention or a 12 step program, I just need another fix. Carina Adams is my dealer and I'll be stalking her, waiting.

Loved this one.

This is Molly and Mike's story. All of the action took place in the now so this was a much less angsty read than Forever Red. He's her bodyguard and someone's been sending her threats so there was some delish chemistry simmering between them as they both tried not to cross the line, then they were trying to keep things secret. Loved that.

Complete story, recommended.

Out of the Blue is the second book in the Bama Boys series and in all honesty the series name was the one thing that had me hesitating to read it. I’m not a country kind of girl… at all. But, I also thought the story sounded interesting so I wanted to give it a try. Now, maybe something you don’t know about me is that I cannot EVER jump into a series mid way through. I have to read every other book in the series. It just won’t happen unless it was totally by accident. So, I picked up Forever Red ...more

I enjoyed the first book in this series 'Forever Red'. However, that book had a few plot holes but I'm glad to see the author has written a much better story for Mike and Molly.

In the epilogue of Forever Red we realised Mike has been in love with Lia for years...even though she is now happy and married to his best friend. This book starts with Mike having taken a different job (he's in Security) so he doesn't have to spend too much time around the Newleyweds. But Lia tracks Mike down an

I absolutely loved Forever Red and absolutely LOVED Mike in that. So as always with a follow up I was a little nervous it wouldn't live up to expectation. And obviously I needed a perfect heroine for him.

Did it live up to expectation - no. It exceeded what I could have hoped for. I was hooked from page one. Molly is definitely one of my all time favourite heroines. She is a mixture of sassy and insecure. She is absolutely amazing. Total girl crush.

And all I need to say about Mike is AMAZING!

I think I missed something…

I mean, the book has incredible ratings.
The summary pulls you in.

I didn’t even bother reading the first book of the series because I assumed I would get the gist of it all.


This story confused the living heck out of me. Definitely not what I was expecting. The H (Mike) seemed to be more obsessed with the “one who got away” (Red/Lia/Lee – the h in the first book). He was in love with her – past and present. There was way too much focus on that, too little f

When I read Forever Red I completely fell in love with Nate Kelly. But there was also the man behind the scenes that I could not over look or forget about. He is the man that everyone loved, the man that everyone wanted to see happy, and the man that we all wanted a story for. He is Mike Carson, and my God did I fall in love with him.

I think anyone who read Forever Red wanted Mike’s story just as badly as I did. When I first read the blurb for Out of the Blue I wondered who

I first fell in love with this series when a friend told me that Forever Red was a must read. I was new to Carina Adams so I wasn’t sure what to expect in the writing but being a second chance romance, I knew I couldn’t go wrong. I fell in love with Nate and Lia’s story but I also fell in love with the author’s writing. So when I saw we were going to get Mike’s book, Nate’s hot as hell best friend and body guard, I couldn’t wait.

Once I read Forever Red, I knew I needed Mike's story and was thrilled we were getting it. In Out of the Blue we get Mike and Molly's story, and find out so much more about the protective best friend, and the wild country singer.

After Lia and Nate's wedding, Mike took some time off, not able to see them together in wedded bliss all the time, but when Lia calls stating she needs Mike back on tour protecting Molly, he jumps at the chance to help his friends. Molly is the wild child, and ge

Earlier this year I was introduced to Carina Adams. And by introduced, I mean I agreed to join on for a blog tour by an author I’d never heard of. When I received my copy of Forever Red, I literally groaned. Then proceeded to complain to Sarah about how long the book was and my uncertainty about finishing it. The joke was entirely on me. I didn’t just read Forever Red, I devoured it. I told Sarah no less than 50 times that she NEEDS to read the book as my eyes gobbled up each page. Now I’m telli ...more

5 star Review of Out Of The Blue (Bama Boys #2) by Carina Adams

Having read the previous book in this series, Forever Red, I was more than excited to see what Carina Adams had in store for Mike Carson. Please note that although a standalone, I would highly recommend you read Forever Red first as Out of the Blue continues on from where it left off.

I love that Ms. Adams paired Mike with Molly Ray. It was totally unexpected, but these two characters apart are great, but together, they are totally a

Out of the Blue was a difficult read for me. I haven’t read the first book in the series so maybe that’s why I wasn’t all in. I wished I had known more before reading and maybe it didn’t make too much of a difference but I felt unattached to the characters. In my opinion that isn’t the best.

Book 2 in the series focuses on Mike. There are other characters involved of course specifically Lia who is Mikes long lost love and best friend. That was w

OMG Mike & Molly's story was sooooo good! I loved that they were friends who found comfort in each other. Loved that they could talk about anything like best friends would. They were funny but yet sweet too. They also melted my heart at times. This book wasn't without some excitement though. There were some secrets from Molly's past that reared their ugly head & boy did things blow up. I absolutely LOVED this book & can't wait to read more of the Bama Boys! ...more

This is Mikes story...and what an incredible book it is! I absolutely loved it!
You should read Forever Red prior to reading this book, however Mike does give you some back story part way in!
I loved the way he cared for his friends and family! He was a kind, caring, strong man as well as a protector! Lia asks him to come back to be singer Molly Rays bodyguard! He does, of course, having missed his frie

Two things come to mind when I think about this book... great book and intriguing storyline. This is a brand spanking new author for me and I am so glad I took a chance. While this is book two in a series, it can be read as a standalone though it is preferred by the author to read book one. Nonetheless, I did not read it and found no issues diving into this book and devouring it.

This book was complicated, emotional, intense, angsty, passionate and gave me a lot of feels along the way.

Carina Adams did it again!!! I finished this book about a week ago and am still thinking about it. Amazing!!

I think anyone who read Forever Red wanted Mike’s story just as bad as I did. When I first read the blurb I wondered who his love interest could possibly be. And then Carina sent me the first few chapters to beta read and when I found out who it was all I could say was no freakin way!

Loved book one in this series, but this one might have topped it. Mike and Molly's story is a wonderful blend of two people who've been hurt in the past. When they get together and share, her secret and his heartache, it's amazing to see how they heal each other. They've got great chemistry which leads to some pretty hot scenes. We are lucky enough to catch glimpses of the other Bama Boys--enough to peak curiosity for the rest of the series. Well done Me. Adams!
I love this series! Mike is still carrying the torch for Lia, his best friend's wife. In order to avoid seeing Lia with her rock-star husband, Nate Kelly, on a daily basis, Mike quits as head of Nate's security. Now Nate's opening act, country-singer Molly, needs protection and Lia wants Mike to be Molly's bodyguard. Can Molly convince Mike that Lia is not the only girl that can rock his world?
Nicely Done!

I downloaded and started this book immediately after finishing Forever Red (book 1 in the 'Bama Boys series). It is every bit as good as the first one but told in a completely different type of format, which is great if reading back to back. Still dual POV though! Again, these characters are so likeable that it is hard to put the book down! I can't wait for book 3 to come out!

Out of the Blue is the second book in the Bama Boys series by Carina Adams. It focused on Mike Carson and Molly Ray. Molly was a rising country star and Mike was hired as her security guard while on tour.

We were introduced to both Mike and Molly in book one. I loved hearing Mike's perspective in a nutshell to how we got to the present. The story was the same as demonstrated in book one, Forever Red; however, the perspective was much different with a few holes filled in as well. Adams then built

“When you want something so badly enough, you find a way.”

When I read Forever Red I fell in love with Nate Kelly and thought, “boy it’s going to be hard for her to top him.” We get Mike Carson in Forever Red. They were a threesome growing up, Lia, Nate and Mike. But it was Lia and Mike that go back even farther, before Nate even came into the picture. He was as sweet as ever. You couldn’t help but fall in love with him either. He was always there for Lia when Nate couldn’t be. He always looked o
