He’s the one person I shouldn’t want…

And the only person I can’t live without.

I’ve always made the right decisions, been the “good girl,” careful to never step over that line. But, when that line begins to blur, my path, my future, changes course.

It was supposed to be a secret - one no one would ever know.

There’s just one problem: How can true love be kept quiet?

It can’

If you have not read Book 1 in the Nashville Nights series, do not read this review!

This is the second book in the Nashville Nights Series. Although I had a few issues with the first book, I did like it. There were some things left hanging at the end of book 1, which was about David and Lyric, and I was hoping they would be addressed in book 2. Unfortunately they were not. Everything I Shouldn’t revolves around SarahBeth and Jeremy. Two of my least favorite characters from Book 1. Jeremy is Davi

I absolutely love the Nashville Night Series, I loved David and Lyrics story in Saved Me From Myself. When I found out the author was releasing Sarah, Beth and Jeremy’s story I was ecstatic. If you read the first one then you know that big WTF moment we had which is the back story of Sarah Beth (SB) and Jeremy. I really loved that we were taken back in time to the accident of David and Sarah Beth’s parents.

I am just going to say it I loved SB and Jeremy so much m

Who doesn't love an older brothers best friend book? Sarahbeth and Jeremy have done life together so it only makes sense that as she got older, he would begin to notice her differently. Unfortunately they go about it the wrong way and others get hurt. Bringing others into a twosome can destroy what you have. If you want it bad enough, then you have to fight for it. Sarahbeth's immaturity throughout the book bugged me. I feel like she should have grown a bit more throughout the story. It was stil ...more

I did not think it possible….but the excellence in the series just continued on from the first book. So much so that I would have given it a 4.5, if we could do half stars!!! I was captivated from the beginning and just kept on going. The storytelling is engaging, entertaining and just downright good!

I love how the story adds depth to the series by re-visiting storylines brought up in book one but from the perspective o

I absolutely loved this book. I read the first book in this series awhile back, and I was very excited to dive back into SarahBeth and Jeremy's story. I wasn't disappointed one bit with this book.

Everything I Shouldn't gives so much backstory into SarahBeth and Jeremy, and that backstory explained so much to their relationship and how it came to be. Reading that also made it very easy to understand how things came to be in the present tense of the book. Reading the past of SarahBeth and Jeremy a

Hmmm, I do so love a forbidden love story, especially when the forbidden love is best friend’s little sister love. There’s just something about those that really suck me in and I don’t know why. I mean, it’s not like I ever hooked up with my big brother’s best friend... When I finished Save Me From Myself – book one in the Nashville Nights series – and read the synopsis for Everything I Shouldn’t, I could barely contain my excitement. I knew, I just knew, that I was going to enjoy watching Jerem ...more

I’m saving my judgment until later – I really wasn’t a fan of SarahBeth when the first book ended. She did some things that she should be ashamed of. But since she’s going to get her side heard, might as well read it, right?

This is why I was excited to get a hold of a copy of the second book in the series, much as I wanted to know what in the world is SB’s problem, I wanted to know what will happen to her and Jeremy. Will they have their HE

Everything I Shouldn't is the second book in the Nashville Nights Series.

When I finished reading Save Me From Myself (Book 1 in the series), SarahBeth and Jeremy were not my favorite people in the world. After all that they did to Lyric and the lies they told to keep their relationship a secret from David, one would think that they deserved what they got in the end. But having read their story and learning how their relationship spanned the course of many years, I began to understand why they to

Considering I'm an southern girl from Tennessee I just had to read this book because it takes places in Nashville and I was not disappointed at all. This was a book on forbidden love that you couldn't help but fall in love with. SarahBeth had been in love with Jeremy all of her life and he basically felt the same way. I was so caught up in this book that I couldn't put it down and I was so caught up in the story line that I just ate this book up. I loved the characters and especially the support ...more

Jeremy helped raise Sarabeth along with his best friend & SaraBeth's brother, David. Jeremy was the one that was there for her while David sorted out his life and started a new business. Jeremy always knew Sarabeth had a crush on him and over the years his feelings changed for her as well. As much as he tried to fight it her knew deep down there was only Sarabeth for him. When he finally gave in to her advances and decided he had to be with her it was everything they both could have imagined and ...more

This series has me gripped. I went onto read this after save me from myself. I hated SB for what she had done with lyric and I wasn't really looking forward to reading about her but once I picked up this book I couldn't put it down. We started back before the events that happened in SMFM it was good to get the whole picture of her life with Jeremy and also it made sense why she acted the way she did within the first book. I still maintain that she is a very spoiled little girl even after the tra ...more

I loved where Save Me from Myself left off and this book took off. I was so upset at SB and Jeremy in the last book I could have strangled them, but they redeemed themselves. Jeremy growing up in a family who never really wanted him, found a best friend in David (SB's bro). SB raised and loved by great parents then tragedy strikes. There are many years and many layers to Jeremy and SB. They built such a s foundation I literally felt I was in the moment with them. Get ready to get down and dirty!

Oh SB & Jeremy,
I adore David & Lyric, but you two? You're giving them a run for their money. Having met them in save me from myself, I was glad to find out they were getting their own story, the snippets of them had me intrigued.
Clearly I wasn't disappointed. This book is the perfect mixture of romance, angst and the steam... Jeremy has a pretty dirty mouth ;-)
I felt for them, the longing, the desperation in wanting to be together but they're stuck in a hopeless situation, then when it all co
This book starts off as Sarabeth and Jeremy , family friends that have known each other since children. This story had me captivated since page one. I read it in a few hours and could not put the book down!

The first book had me so mad at SB and Jeremy, the way they treated Lyric/David, but you get a better understanding in this book on why they handled it they way they did.

Just FYI, the chemistry between the two is down right HOT!!! Of course, there is a HUGE cliffhanger that will leave your he

Stacey is kicking ass and taking names!

David and Lryic love them. So glad things worked out for them. Jeremy and SarahBeth were not my favorite couple. The lying and all the stuff they did in book one got to me. I did not think they were redeemable... Like what happens a lot I was wrong fell in love with them. I really wanted to kick Jeremy's ass a few times but I still fell for him. I never heard of Stacey until a friend told me about her, I am so glad she did. This is a great story and heads u

I have been anticipating this story for since I read Save Me From Myself. Mosteller didn't disappoint!! It started and answered a great deal of my questions about SB and J's relationship. I really liked that it showed the growth of their love and exactly why SB acted like such a nasty...lady in Save Me From Me. J is just..hmm... lawd... he is a man that doesn't mince words.

I loved the first in this series enough, to jump to the this one #2, Everything I Shouldn't. I am not a fan of the "other side of the story" where we get another point of view. I did like SOME of the back story to Jeremy & SB. I enjoyed it more when it was stuff we hadn't heard of. I REALLY loved when we got to the very END and we were current. Therefore, I just downloaded #3 Everything I Need to see what happens with SB and Jeremy.

Of course, I also loved seeing David & Lyric working on their re

Speechless! I'm in love with Stacey Mosteller's writing. The friendships and bonds that are shared. The secrets and heartbreak that can destroy a family. It's all there subtle yet prominently the elephant in the room! Will SB outgrow her crush on Jeremy? Will Jeremy take advantage of his best friend's sister, the woman he's known forever.
