So my book boyfriend for the week is


A Connection Series Novella featuring Aerie Daniels and Jagger Kennedy (River Wilde's cousin)

Jagger Kennedy never went looking for fame, he just fell into it. After scoring a major modeling contract, his clean-cut good looks and charm catapulted his career. But when his actress girlfriend breaks his heart, he moves to L.A. to try his hand at acting. He needs to make a change, and the last thing he’s looking for is love…

Aerie Daniels is a woman in control … until she meets Jagger. Her surprising connection with him leaves her stunned, and it’s unlike anything she’s ever felt. But just when she lets her walls fall, she makes a startling discovery about him that breaks her fragile heart into a million pieces.

To keep from losing the one woman he can’t bear to be without, Jagger is willing to give up anything—including his career. But even that might not be enough to regain Aerie’s shattered trust…


He's a cupcake thief!

The corners of the cupcake thief's mouth lift up when he looks in my direction and a low chuckle leaves his throat.  "Alice?"

I can feel heat rising up my body and would venture to guess that my skin color almost matches my dress.  At the same moment that the flush is creeping up my throat, his pure steady gaze somehow sets me at ease.

 He asks forgiveness! 

He puts his hand over mine and again I shiver.  "Hey, I didn't know when I bought those that you were upset, but I know now.  So, Alice, please forgive me for stealing your cupcakes."

Oh my God.  The things his touch does to me.  I don't know if I should melt away out of embarrassment or jump for joy out of elation.

He smells good

He leans down and braces his hands on the door.  Again he is so close, I can smell his unbelievable scent.  I can see how his dark hair shines in the moonlight.  I notice the fullness of his lips -- I could kiss him if I wanted.

He knows how to greet a women

"Hi, he says, his voice as smooth as molasses. His tone sends electricity through me in bolts.

"Hello," I say back. My voice sounds high, almost squeaky. He doesn't move. He doesn't say another word and neither do I. Hours of flirting and dancing around this seduction have left me unprepared to face him now. My pulse races out of control as he steps toward me. I take a deep breath and the moment his lavender and sage scent graces my senses, I begin to tremble. Our eyes share a silent conversation and then his mouth is on mine in a heartbeat. And this, our second kiss, is just as satisfying as the first. No, it's so much more.

He's interested in pleasing

"What do you like?  he asks.
I stop breathing.  "I don't know."
I can feel the corners of him mouth curve upwards as he moves to kiss my stomach.
"Well let's find out," he smirks.

His kisses are not patient

The deserted winding canyon road seems to go on for miles before he suddenly pulls the car off to the side.
"Everything okay?" I ask, somewhat alarmed.
With the car in park, he leans over the console and presses his hard body against mine.  His soft lips kiss along the tender skin of my neck and once they find my lips, our tongues entwine in the most erotic dance.  Breathless, he sits back in his seat.  "Everything is fine.  I just realized I hadn't kissed you in a a while."

Mini Review

I have loved this series.  River and Dahlia's story was so satisfying.  I was excited to see more.  When I met Jagger in the epilogue to Torn, I liked him right away.  So reading his story was a given.

And I love Jagger.  Falling into being a model was a given considering just how sexy gorgeous he is.  Dating the actress brought him pain and getting out of New York was his solution.  He's trying his hand at acting while he stays with is cousin, River, in California.    But what I love about his has nothing to do with any of that.  I love that he brings Aerie out of her shell.  He gets her to try new foods and explore new places.  He teaches her to enjoy her life and do accept herself.  He brings the best out of her and she him.  They were adorable together.

I do like Aerie even if she come to some strange conclusions at times.  I get it but I wanted to smack her twice.  Luckily, she figures it out too and then I just smiled.

Love this series?  Don't miss this one.  Can't wait for more.
