I need to tell someone about it, I just don’t know how. I’m pushing everyone I love away, including my mom and my best friend Charlie.
Then there is Will. Handsome, sweet Will. We went out on a date a while back, but then the incident happened leaving me crushed and him confused.
How do you tell someone you care about all of your secrets, and will they still want you when the truth comes out?
The story of Jack Henry and Laurelyn continues…
How do you move on when he’s every song you sing?
After Laurelyn Prescott walks away from the love of her life, she returns to Nashville to pursue the only dream she has left. Determined to find a distraction from the pain of losing Jack Henry, she immerses herself in her music. But with her old life comes old acquaintances and new expectations. When Laurelyn refuses her record producer’s outrageous demands, she finds herself without a career—until an unforeseen opportunity presents itself. From there it’s a rocket ride straight to the top where Laurelyn finds the success she’s always dreamed of. Will it be enough to bring her the happiness she so deserves, or will the absence of Jack Henry leave her wanting more?
Jack Henry McLachlan never expected to fall in love with Laurelyn Prescott—but he did. After he foolishly let her slip through his fingers, he spends three months searching for her, but their reunion doesn’t come easy. The woman he finds isn’t the same one who drifted away without a goodbye. No longer an insecure girl on an Australian adventure, this Laurelyn is a successful musician with a promising career. Her dreams are becoming a reality, and Jack is terrified his American girl won’t have a place for him in her new life. With only a month to convince her otherwise, will it be enough time to make her visualize a life beyond the glitz and glamour, a life that includes him?
Laurelyn Prescott’s POV
He holds out a red rose for me. “You have an admirer.”
I take the rose and bring it to my nose. Being given a bouquet of flowers isn’t unusual after a show but I’ve never been given a single rose before. It seems so intimate. “A fan, I suppose?”
“I found this dude standing outside the door looking in here just now. I asked him who he was but he didn’t say. He just told me to give you the rose and this guitar. Oh, and tell you he enjoyed the show—that you were ‘fan-fucking-tastic.’” He puts the case at my feet and the world around me begins to spin way too fast.
It’s my Martin. That can only mean Jack Henry was here. Right outside that door—that cracked door—while Charlie was kissing me.
I dash off the couch and run down the hallway, calling out for him like a maniac. “Jack Henry! Jack Henry!”
I have no idea which way to go, but I run toward the auditorium. It’s empty other than the cleaning staff, so I run toward the lobby and out to the street where I pray I’ll find him standing on the sidewalk.
It’s storming and the raindrops pelting down sting as they hit my face. I reach up to push my wet hair from my eyes and that’s when I see him. He’s getting into a cab up the street. “Jack Henry!” I shout at the top of my lungs but he doesn’t hear me. He’s too far away. “Jack Henry!”
I run toward the car screaming his name and I reach the cab as it’s leaving. I slam my hand across the top of the trunk as hard as I can before watching it pull away, taking him out of my life again.
“Nooo!” I scream so loudly, my vocal cords spasm. I drop to my knees there on the cold, wet concrete. I try to scream, and again, nothing comes out because my breath has been taken from me.
Please, don’t leave. Please, don’t be gone out of my life forever.

Vanessa Carmichael will never forget the horrible day for as long as she lives. With Zane fully on the mend from the brutal attack he suffered right in her very own yard, she knows she should be grateful, which she is. She also knows that walking away from Zane might be the only way to keep him safe. Despite her denial, V knows she can’t trust her own heart, especially when it comes to the youngest Walker brother, but he’s not the kind of man who will walk away when there is something he wants. He wants her even if it isn’t safe for him, and she’s not sure she is strong enough to walk away. Zane Walker might have been brutally attacked and after months in the hospital, walked away with his life spared, but now that he’s out of the hospital, he has only one goal in mind. Getting the girl.
From the first time he kissed her, Zane knew V was the only one for him. He also knew that getting her wasn’t going to be as easy as he hoped. She’s stubborn and the walls she has erected around her heart are nearly impenetrable. However, there’s one thing about Zane – he never gives up. And he’s not about to start now. Can V learn to open her heart to the one man who is desperate to get past those walls she has erected, or will she walk away to protect him? How long will Zane allow her to deny what he knows is growing between them? Or is the only option to obscure the underlying emotions with spine tingling lust?
When V and Zane come together, smoke detectors go on the fritz, but when they bring Zane’s best friend Beau into the mix extra fire extinguishers are needed.

NAUGHTYS’ REVIEW: NAUGHTYS’ RATING: 5 STARS
What can I say about Zane only that it literally took my breath away from start to finish. This is up there as one of my favourite books by Nicole Edwards. Still trying to take it all in…. so much going on in this book. Just when I think I have the Walker brothers figured out my jaw drops once again….love each and every one of them and their escapades. Nicole manages to up the ante once again with Zane. WOW, this ladies imagination knows no bounds. Love the storyline and the way Nicole interconnects the characters from Club Destiny and Alluring Indulgence, and how she has made the two series’ gel together perfectly. If you are looking for a hot steamy read this is the book for you as Zane is off the charts HOT!!! There were times I literally had to walk away from my Kindle, compose myself, and return for more. Just when I think it cannot get any hotter Nicole increases the tempo and my temperature. YES it’s THAT good!!!
The story centres around Zane Walker and his love interest Vanessa Carmichael, V as she is affectionately known. Zane has been the victim of an assault which we learned about towards the end of KALEB, the first in the series ALLURING INDULGENCE. V is falling for Zane(even if she will not admit it to herself), but she will not let him past that wall she has erected around her heart, a wall that Zane is determined to break through. He brings out a sexual side to Vanessa that she never realised she wanted to explore. This book takes us on that sexual journey and makes for a very hot and steamy ride indeed. It also gives us an insight into the lives of the other six Walker brothers which are eventful to say the least! We are introduced to another beautiful man also …the gorgeous Beau who I fell for hook, line and sinker. He is both heart melting and panty melting!! Boy, that guy sure knows how to work a pool table!! 😉
What also impacted on me from this book and Kaleb before it is the wonderful sense of family surrounding the brothers and their parents. The bond they have with each other, and the love that emanates from each and every one of these men for their mum and dad is very special, and gives this series substance.
I don’t want to give away any spoilers, so I will just say if you have never read a Nicole Edwards book I totally recommend that you read this series and THE CLUB DESTINY series. They honestly are amazing!!! I have a huge book hangover after Zane, and I am waiting patiently (yeah right!) for Travis”, (another gorgeous Walker brother) the third in the ALLURING INDULGENCE series, to come out. From what I already know of this hunk of deliciousness I can see I am going to need my oxygen tent at the ready!!! Be still my beating heart!! Sigh!
“Then what’s the problem?” He was getting irritated now. “Are you scared, V? Scared that fucking me might turn into something more?” Taunting her, he continued, “Scared that I might just be able to get past that impenetrable outer shell?”
“That was your first time to give a dude a blow job?”
“Do you want to do it again.?”
“I love you, Vanessa Carmichael. I love you with everything I am.”
Zoey Stranford might’ve had a crush on the sexy boy next door since middle school, but she’s a woman now, and that crush has turned into a full blown case of lust. So why is it that at twenty nine, her libido decides to ramp into high gear and the only thing she can focus on is the intensely sexy, scorching hot boy next door who is definitely not a boy anymore?
The only problem is that Zoey and Kaleb have been best friends for as long as she can remember. Not to mention, Kaleb and his brothers are working on buying Stranford land to build a new resort, and she’s more than a little hesitant about his intentions.
Kaleb Walker has had his eye on Zoey for close to twenty years, but never before has he considered taking their friendship to the next level, no matter how many fantasies he’s had about her over the years. That doesn’t explain why Kaleb is hell bent on having her – in as many ways as possible.
Kaleb finds himself in a precarious situation. His brothers have nominated him to pursue Zoey’s father about purchasing the land needed to get their new resort off the ground. Finding out that Carl Stranford is on the brink of foreclosure and Zoey might just lose her house and the land, Kaleb now has to convince her to put aside her pride and let him help her.
It doesn’t take long before the flames start burning bright and hot, and the two of them burn up the nights and the days as they explore each other’s forbidden fantasies. But can their friendship survive a business transaction or the new friends with benefits clause? Or will they realize that they’ve been overlooking something much deeper that’s been right in front of them all along?

Consider yourself warned! Contains graphic material that is not suitable for anyone under the age of 18.
Book Dame’s Rating 4.5 Stars
So I’ve heard about how hot Nicole Edwards’ books are. I’ve read Temptation and that one is blazing hot!! Then another book stole my attention away and I never got back to her series. Well, boy have I been missing out.
When Nicole Edwards decided to donated part of her sales to the Keith Milano Memorial Page Fund which benefits the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. I picked up Kaleb. I was so excited to finally get to start it and I couldn’t put it down! It was hot but not full on BDSM, but hot!! Did I mention that it was Hot!! It does have m/f/m in it, I’m not one that is bother by it and this one has no m/m but some of you may be concerned. I was fanning my self and going out side were no one could see me blush or look over my shoulder!!
Kaleb Walker is a hot Texan with 7 brothers and the alpha male chromosome! He and Zoey Stranford are both from a small town and have a friendship that they both hide their attraction behind. Zoey is truly the girl next door the one we all know and love. A divorced women running her own business and helping her father. Zoey is the girl who wears comfortable clothing and enjoys her small town. I love that Nicole Edwards was able to intertwine the brothers into the story without any of them stealing away the show. She peaked my interest enough that of course I want to know them all. But happy Kaleb and Zoey got their own full story. Maybe that is easily say since Zane is out!! Can’t wait to fit it in my reading list!! Run out and pick up Kaleb and Zane’s book not only are you getting great books, that are Blazing Hot but your also benefiting American Foundation for Suicide Prevention!!

How do you cope when the people you care for hurt you the most? When the way you feel on the outside, smothers you on the inside. And when you are left to face your demons alone, will you learn that only you have the power to overcome them?
Charlie has never had it easy. Between the constant moving and the incessant fat comments and jokes from her father, her self-worth is nonexistent. Her reflection in the mirror shows her nothing but a plain Jane. Music is the only thing that keeps her sanity in check.
Charlie catches the eye of the town star quarterback, Maverick. With her curves, her brunette hair, and the voice of an angel, Maverick has never met anyone like her. Everything that is different about Charlie just makes Maverick like her more. Unfortunately, Charlie doesn’t see it herself.
Proving it to her may deem harder than he thinks, especially when tragedy strikes and tears them apart.
Now standing on her own two feet she may finally learn exactly who she is, what’s she’s capable of and how very un plain Jane she really is.
Book Dame would give this book a 4 stars in Young Adult to Teen Genre
This book is geared towards a younger crowd, and is true to form. Heather takes a ugly topic and wines a sweet first love into it. I loved how this story stay on track and didn’t use the typical in crowd as added fluff! Its easy to feel for Charlie even if you didn’t grow up in any kind of abusive home, she down to earth and just looking to fit in somewhere. Maverick the all american high school boy, who is a great role model and easy to love. If your a YA fan this is a great book for you, and I plan to get my daughter and niece to read it!!
I turn to Will, “Dude was that really necessary?” Will just throws his quirky smile up and shrugs his shoulders.
“Couldn’t be helped bro. It looked like you were drooling all over yourself. We are talking baby drool bad. And I, being your best friend and all, am here to help keep you from the massive embarrassment you were fixing to bestow upon yourself.”
I hang my head, stare at the floor and smile. “Can’t help it Will. I like her, I like her a lot.”
I knew I wouldn’t catch any ribbing from him, considering his infatuation with a certain red head.
Will starts chuckling, “Yeah, yeah, I know. I could tell. You forget, I’ve known you since diapers. I have to say though Maverick, I’ve never seen you so, so….Twitter painted.”
Nice. A Disney reference.
“You ass,” I laugh, and playfully punch him in the arm and grab him into a headlock. Of course, it doesn’t faze him and he’s laughing like the tool he is. I let go and he finally stops laughing and turns serious, like the switching of a light.
“Nah, seriously dude, I can tell you like her. She’s hot Maverick, and seems really nice. She also doesn’t seem very into herself, which is rare. Plus, I also saw her walking with Tori earlier. So I know she’s got to be cool.”
I instantly feel a pang of jealousy. I must have gotten a look on my face and Will can read me like a damn book.
“Now, now don’t get all territorial and go pissing all over her. That might turn her off,” he says. I simmer down because I know he still has feelings for someone else. It was the fact that he noticed. But then again, anyone would notice. How could you not? I just don’t want any competition. The thought of someone else with her was driving me insane.
