*Graphic sexual content – readers advised.
“Race ya there,” I snicker, darting towards the bedroom I moved our clothes into, tossing his bag into the hall.
Let the games begin.
Somehow, he beats me down to the water – imagine that. With steeled armor, I keep my face stoic, my gait and candor unfazed, as I approach, despite the urge to snicker at his bulged-out eyes and jaw dropped into the ocean.
And yeah, I noticed his hand dip below the surface to adjust himself; doesn’t always shrink in cold water it would seem.
His head jerks left, right, then back to me as his eyes narrow to accusatory slits. “What’re you thinking, Trouble? Public beach,” he sputters.
Doe-eyed innocence, my lips twist cleverly. “Not for two miles either direction it isn’t. Besides, what’s the problem?” Surely it’s not my string-thong bikini bottoms and lack of a top?
If you told anyone, even Lys who’s known me forever, they’d bet on hell freezing over twice before believing I’m capable of such audacious, brazen antics, but I’m embracing it, rejoicing in the Jocelyn he brings out. Alive; seeing clearly, smelling flowers miles away, hearing the faintest of sounds – like I just started partaking in, and enjoying, the world that’s surrounded me my whole life.
His mouth curves upward at the corner, a twinkle in his eyes reflecting off the water as he beckons me to him with the leisurely crook of his finger.
“Moi?” I mouth, pointing to myself. My whole body’s buzzing, sexy satisfaction razoring through me as he slowly nods. “Alright,” I huff in feigned inconvenience.
I walk into the water as he walks out, hoisting me up as we meet, wrapping my legs around his waist for me.
“You’ll be my end, Jocelyn Craig,” he says, almost demurely, almost a frown, heading us backward into the deeper water.
“The ending’s supposed to be the best part.” I smile, leaning in to rest my forehead on his. “Do I win the game?”
He glances down at my breasts – nipples hardened from the cool water, his tongue lazily tracing his bottom lip. “I’m afraid you just might.”

The search is over…when they Conspire.”
I have read a few books By SE Hall and now addicted but this this is the first I have read By Erin Noelle and I need to read more! I was hooked to Conspire from the very start….Graham has to find out what really happened to his brother, Devon. And to do this, he has to put his skills to work and go undercover. To get his answers he has to change his name to Bryce and do whatever it takes to be close to the people Devon was surrounded by. He notices that Devon’s roommate might just have some answers but doesn’t quite know it yet so he brings her into mix and she is a real asset. And when he goes to a job interview he has found something he did not expect….A spark and her name is Jocelyn. Jocelyn is tired of living under her Daddy’s thumb and doing whatever he wants he to do including being with an asshole of a boyfriend. She wants to be her own person and be the careful person she knows she could be and maybe even once was. She is the PR Director at her Daddy’s Pharmaceutical Company and when they have a position to fill, she decides to fill it herself, a sort of rebellion. And when she sees Bryce walk through her door, she is ready to hire him on the spot. She had never felt whatever it was she was feeling when his eyes met hers…..
Bryce has to hide his identity but he never hides his true self when it comes to Jocelyn. He was not excepting her to be so honest, witty one hell of a flirt and so much more. He has to focus on the task at hand and also connect to this woman that he feels so close to. Can he balance between getting the answers and being with Jocelyn? Will he find the truth? Can Jocelyn become her own person and go against her Father.
Bryce and Jocelyn’s chemistry is so sexy! He brings out her inner minx and she feels so alive. She knows he is hiding something but he makes sure she can trust him, fully. I love a good mystery and love story and throw in some humor, well then it’s a perfect mix. The friends in this book are so fun and supportive and I loved them. I am like a detective while I read….you can ever ask my blog partner, she knows when my wheels are turning.
For tomorrow, the games begin, and I don’t mean the ones someone had sloppily played on my brother. No, I mean the kind I play….and win.
However, I’m afraid this gentlemen is lost- having wandered from the GQ shoot nearby perhaps? Unless he’s applying for the starring role of my most lewd and erotic dreams, in which case , he’s hired. In fact, I may give him a raise.
When I’m with him, I can be myself – my opinions, likes or dislikes, and voice them – with no fear of harsh reprimand or insistent redirection.
AND since I loved her Best friend Alyssa, here is one from her.
“Maybe he remembered he forgot to manscape me didn’t want you to see his jungle crotch.”
SE Hall is one of my go to authors. I sit patiently and wait for her to write new books. She’s an amazing writer; funny, emotional, sexy, sassy, serious. Whatever it is, she can write it. What’s even better than SE Hall? Her with a writing partner! Somehow they just meld perfectly together. That’s not always the case, so I get super excited when she writes with someone else and she and Erin together are magic! Erin has her own unique way of writing and I’ll be reading more of her books! This is a unique story of Graham who becomes Bryce to investigate his brother’s death. He stumbles upon Jocelyn and is hit with her beauty, wit and smile. He wasn’t expecting her but now he can’t stay away. He has to be Bryce. He has a mission. Jocelyn has always done what’s expected of her but she’s done with that. She wants Bryce and she plans to get him. Will she learn his secret and walk away. Can he convince her that his feeling weren’t part of his ruse. Can they work together to solve the mystery or will it tear them apart? Graham and Jocelyn have amazing chemistry. I was fanning myself then laughing. This story has it all: passion, love, loss, pain, humor and steam. Don’t miss it!
Turning around, I float off to the elevators, thinking, I’d open more than just doors for that man.
Knowing so little about her, but feeling something insistently guiding me toward her like a light, I’m leery yet hopeful of where Jocelyn will end up standing. Next to me?
“Now I’m gonna kiss ya goodbye like a man who’s known you forever.”
The minute five o’clock strikes, I rush to my truck on an immeasurable high…in a mannish and stud-like manner, of course.
Feeling surly, yet consistently, unavoidably captivated, I throw both fucks I still gave out the window.
“Be my spark, Bryce. Set me on fire.”

Cannon is stranded in the middle of nowhere with a duffle bag and his guitar, when he is approached by Liz, the lead singer of a band in desperate need for a new bass player. He’s instantly drawn to her and she to him. He agrees to join them after jumping though a few hoops which had me laughing out loud! The band consists of Lizzie’s two best friends Jarrett and Rhett and her brother Conner. Cannon becomes part of the family and is bewitched by his Siren, Lizzie. He has some baggage which Lizzie has a hard time getting over, and she has ghosts in her past that make her question everything. He’s sure of himself and what he wants. He’s sexy and talented which is what drew her in. But, he’s smooth and sincere and wears his heart on his sleeve. I haven’t wanted to be a leading female character as much as I wanted to be Lizzie. I wanted to hear Cannon say those things to me. Sing to me. He’s just amazing. Period. She thinks they are moving too fast, but he’s sure it’s fate. Can he convince her? Will she let go and finally be free?
Rhett is the sensitive, brooding drummer and Jarrett is the funny, mouthy guitarist.The secondary characters are almost as loved and Lizzie and Cannon. I loved their banter and their obvious love for one another. They have a bond that can’t be broken. I laughed, cried, smiled, laughed, cried some more. I sighed a lot. I hugged my kindle when it was over wanting more. More Cannon! Oh, did I mention that SE Hall loves to add her street team members to her book? Their names or something important to them. I got a shout out in this one. Who wants to go eat at Hildebrand’s Hickory House? ME, ME, ME!!Hello miracle. The glint of the sun reflecting off the guitar slung across his back is what first snags my attention, but the favors he’s doing that pair of Levi’s is what’s keeping it.He smiles; well, his mouth does some upturning, mind-fuckery type thing. Guys may be oblivious to, well, almost everything, but you can’t tell me they don’t know what the shirtless, barefoot thing does to a woman. They know. Sneaky bastards.I mentally scratch my pseudo-balls and raise my glass, sit straighter in my chair and click the cheers. “Bring it on, penis-packers!”“What you do to me, Lizzie, your song, your smile, a look…you draw me in and I’m captivated, willing to sell my soul to know more. I can’t wait to hear what you’ll say next, what you’ll wear each day, what will make you smile and laugh. I watch the way you love and take care of Conner, Rhett and the others and all I can do is envy them, try to figure out how to get your to pour all that Lizzie love over me. Then let me give it right back.” (see what I mean? Sigh)One jump and he catches me, holding me close as I wrap my legs around his waist and dig my trembling hands through his silky hair. I kiss him like I do in every dream I’ve ever has about us – untamed, hungry, and confident – tangling our tongues in a battle of want vs. fear, need vs. brave enough to try.“You were instantly, are now and will always be, my prettiest instinct.”
Cannon had no idea he would be on a bus full of strangers just a few hours after being dumped on the side of the road. He and the band, well most of them got along instantly. He knew from the start that Lizzie was special. He wanted to get to know her better but he had to work on that wall of hers and he would not give up.
Cannon and Lizzie are amazing! I love the way Cannon handled Lizzy and her moods. Even with all of her witchiness he could get her back to the Lizzie he knew was inside. And they are steamy! She needed to let go of her anger about the past. I can seriously write a novella about this book! I laughed, I cried, I blushed and I laughed some more. I need humor in my books and this has it. The perfect amount and some great new sayings.
I highly recommend this book. I need to make room for Cannon Blackwell on my Top Boyfriend Lists. And I also love the rest of gang and hope to see them in more books. And on a side note: Best fight in a Book Ever!
My dry wit isn’t for everyone, almost no one, in fact, but he’s confirmed what I’ve suspected all along…I’m funny as fuck.
“You are definitely bitchy, in the most adorable, protective way possible. But if you call yourself mundane again I will spank your delectable little ass. Twice. Until a Tomorrow. Sleep Well, my bewitching siren.”
” I will never be able to pick a favorite part of you, each more flawless and beautiful than the last. You’re absolutely perfect, Lizzy. Without a doubt, the most exquisite woman in the world, inside and out.”

SE Hall’s New Release
Entice is the perfect name for Sawyers book: Lure, tempt, seduce, attract = Sawyer.
SE Hall is amazing yet again. I’ve been a fan of Sawyer from the first time we see him in Emerge and we find out he’s tall, bad-ass looking with short hair and dark blue eyes, a killer smile and big muscles. He just stole my heart and I’ve been waiting for his story for a long time. The wait was totally worth it and this is the best book of the series for me! We’ve all grown to love smart mouthed Sawyer but we get to see inside the real man now. He’s just amazing. I literally laughed out loud through the entire book while my heart was melting. I finished the book in less than a day and I can’t wait to read it again. He sets his sights on Emmett, a girl who is a perfect match for Sawyer but she’s resists him. Their story is funny and heart warming and happy and sad and frustrating and beautiful. If I could give it 10 stars I would!
Sigh…thank you for giving me more Sawyer! I can’t wait for more!!
