Synopsis

Liam Collins is in way over his head. He’s been hired to act as the face of the hermit author, Chase Preston, by attending events and interacting with the fans. At first, it doesn’t sound that bad at all.

But Chase can’t seem to keep his hands to himself. And Liam can’t stop himself from getting turned on. Is Liam merely Chase’s play thing? Is this the real reason he was hired?

The more Liam struggles to resist the sexy author, the more curious Liam becomes. Who is Chase, really?

A little harmless snooping is about to put Liam in a lot of danger.

Macky’s Review

So... If you read the first in this intriguing series, Being Chase you'll remember exactly what 'position' Liam was left in with PIA, sex on legs Chase Preston and if you were anything like me you'd be dying to see how that little scene played out, and no ... I'm not telling! Haha!

Thankfully it wasn't a long wait, so I was all geared up to see where Ms Scotts was going to take Liam and Chase's story and I can tell you I truly wasn't expecting what happened in this instalment. Let's just say I didn't see that end coming!  Be warned this one also leaves you with a cliffy but this time it REALLY is edge of the seat stuff! I've got to say though, that this is all part of why it’s keeping me intrigued and why I'm enjoying it so much. I guess cliff-hangers either work for you or they don't, the choice is yours! Personally I'm quite partial to having my stomach left in knots... Go figure! LOL.
Luckily though a little bird told me that once again we don't have too long a wait for book 3... and boy are my nails and I glad to hear that.

What I can tell you is that we get to see Liam do his first official outing as Chase Preston and once again he's thrown in the path of good cop/bad cop duo, Landon and Eli and I am SO hoping that one day Liam gets the chance to tell that smug bastard, Landon 'Snobby Pants' exactly where to go and what to do with himself when he gets there!  Oooh he is just soooo slappable...if anyone could turn me green and make me say “You won't like me when I'm angry" then he's the guy! Grr!

Luckily Liam has backup from Nicole, Chase's sister, another family member who he finds himself warming too, as well as Chase's younger brother Josh, who also makes another appearance. She drops some hints about her annoyingly arrogant brother that, for a split second, makes Liam think a bit more sympathetically about him. In fact it’s because of a scene Liam witnesses, between the two brothers (again showing a possible 'nicer' side of Chase) that leads to another yummy sexually charged confrontation between the two MC's.

11

Inadvertently all this leads to the books "Oh crap!!" conclusion, when a wound up Liam does exactly what it says in the books title... he follows Chase to a mysterious club ... the rest you'll have to find out for yourselves!

I'm really having fun with this series. I just love all the delicious push and pull between the two main guys. It’s racking up the sexual tension very nicely, and love him or loathe him Chase is not just getting under Liam's skin, he's getting under mine too and the mystery surrounding him is intriguing enough to keep me wanting more. There's just enough hints creeping into the story now to make you realise that there's obviously reasons why he plays the bad boy, and to me, that makes him, and the on-going plot, all the more interesting. Plus he's one hell of a sexy piece of work, so that's no hardship! Yeah, he's still an arrogant prick and the sexually charged tension between them is still kicking off big style but there's definitely glimmers of a different side to Chase coming through... Admittedly at this stage, they're still fleeting, but they are there! And that cover... OMG! I just want to frame that and stare at it all day! Kudos on that JJ!

I'm definitely in for the long run now and I suspect most of you will be there with me. Now we wait.... Cue the menacing music... DUN DUN DUNNNNNNN!!!

A Word from J.J

About Liam

 

There was a young man standing at a bus stop.

He was tall with a boyish looking face. He kept checking his watch like he was in a rush. Maybe checking more often would make the bus come sooner. He was wearing a blazer that was too big for him and mismatching slacks. He tugged his collar like he couldn't stand wearing it and paced back-and-forth a few feet every minute or so. Sweat collected on his brow.

This was probably his first interview.
He didn’t know that he should have been holding a portfolio or something to take notes with. He should have looked more confident. He should have taken more care with his appearance. He should have been reviewing possible interview questions and going over his resume.
Poor guy. He wasn’t going to make a good impression. It wasn’t hard to see that.
What if he had a lot on the line? What if he desperately needed this job? It was either this or he'd be out on the streets. He was screwed if he thought he’d get a job looking like that.
But what if...he mysteriously got that job? What if he was handed the offer on the spot? Who would give him such an outrageous offer?
He didn’t notice me standing behind him at the bus stop, but I liked him. I think I’ll call him Liam.
