What if you had everything in the world you wanted...except the man you never knew you needed?

Shaw Jennings, the seductive, enigmatic owner of Body Electric Tattoo works hard and plays even harder. He’s built a life he’s proud of, and though that doesn’t include a significant other, he’s got plenty of sexy men to keep his bed warm at night. None of them have ever made Shaw sit up and take notice for long, though. But that all changes when a famous rock star walks through his door.

Trent Knox had the world in the palm of his hand as the lead singer of TBD, one of the biggest rock bands in historyuntil the day he walked away. A getaway to South Haven Island seems like the perfect place for Trent to find himself again and reignite his passion for music. But what he never expects is to find his muse in a six-five, tatted-up badass whose sinful smile he can’t get out of his mind.

The only problem? Trent’s a notorious womanizer, and Shaw isn’t interested in being someone’s experimentmuse or otherwise. But in a town as small as this one, Shaw is finding it more and more difficult to keep the persistent rocker at arm’s length.

As the tension between them builds, maybe it’s time to finally give in and get carried away with something a little bit like...desire.

We remember tattoo artist Shaw from the first book. He's best friends with the Lucas and Bash.
And he's a happily single serial dater. He never really had a boyfriend. He loves his life and as long as no one looks like a forever kind of guy he can keep on living the way he's always lived.
And then this guy arrives on the island. A guy he has some kind of one-night stand with. But it's not really a gay guy. And he's also kind of a rock star hiding on the island while finding out what to do with his life after leaving his band.
Both Shaw and Trent first think the other guy is straight. But once they realize the truth it's not all insta happy endish.
But we'll get there!




You start reading and BAM! You're right in the middle of a very kinky and sexy and mysterious one-night stand kind of thing. Grrrrr!

And after that night it only gets better.

We have all those funny and adorable and frustrating and sexy moments. Shaw and Trent don't know that they're attracted to each other. Bash has to throw them together every chance he gets. Adorable!
But once all the gay truths are out in the open .... Let the fun times begin.

I adored this book!
It's so very erotic and sweet and sad and fun.
I loved every word of it!!!!

Now I NEED to see what Bash will have to tell us in the 3rd book:
A little bit like Heaven - coming soon! GIMMMMMEEEEEE! He's gonna have such an amazing story - I can't wait to see who he'll get to fall for.

Oh ... a tiny little thing I didn't love-love. Shaw's hair. Uhm.... wasn't the frosted tips look an early nineties never-to-be-done-again thing?? I just can't imagine a hot guy having that kind of hair today. Ew! ☺

And I also kind of wanted a bit more family. Trent says how amazing his parents are, but we don't meet them. And Shaw's mom. I wanted a bit more - maybe even have his real dad appear. Something a tiny little bit more family moments. BUT ... it was totally amazing the way it was!

A LITTLE BIT LIKE DESIRE was such an adorable & sexy tattooey-rock star romance! Hurry to your nearest amazon for your own #Shox!!! These two are MINE! ☺

ARC received for an honest review

That right there ^ is me after reading just the first chapter of A Little Bit Like Desire.

And after reading the rest of it too!

This book sure does start out with a bang, not a whimper, and I was hooked right to the end.

If you have have read A Little Bit Like Love, you will have met Shaw Jennings (and if you haven't read it, why the heck not?)

This book has a lot of my favourite things - tattoos (and sexy AF tattoo artists), rock stars and m/m.  How could this possibly be wrong for me?  That's right, it couldn't!

Enter Trent Knox - rock star who is a little lost at the moment, but finding his way in South Haven.

And things sure do get hot down south- yes, that "down south" too :P

The sexual tension between Shaw and Trent is off the charts. I leaps off the pages! Along with sexy and hot moments, we have plenty of sweet and tender moments, sad moments and OMG this is amazing moments.

I couldn't help but fall in love with #Shox as they were falling for each other.

I loved that we got more of Lucas and Jackson (from A Little Bit Like Love) and I am absolutely enamoured with Shaw's best friend Bash right now.  Oh, he is a cheeky one, and I can't wait to find out more about him in the next book.

Please don't keep me waiting too long Ms Blaine, I need more!  But until then, the boys say bye!

Book #1

Book #2

Brooke's L.A. Liaisons series:





You could say Brooke Blaine was a book-a-holic from the time she knew how to read. She used to tell her mother that curling up with one at 4 a.m. before elementary school was her quiet time. Not much has changed except for the espresso I.V. pump she nowcarries around and the size of her onesie pajamas.

Brooke enjoys writing sassy contemporary romance, whether in the form of comedy, suspense, or erotica. The latter has scarred her conservative Southern family for life,bless their hearts.

If youd like to get in touch with her, shes easy to find - just keep an ear out for the Rick Astley ringtone thats dominated her cell phone for ten years.
