Cris: *hands on knees, head down taking deep breaths* Tell. Me. Again. Why. Are. We. Running!!
Pam: *running in place* Come on Cris! Running is fun and you never know we may see the one any only Leo Nash running these streets!
Cris: So you are telling me that by making me run 5K that we will run into Leo Nash. *snickers*
Pam: No! I am saying that we may be able to find our own hottie. *cheshire cat grin*
Cris:: Ok I will run but you are SO buying me cupcakes after this! *stands up and cocks one eyebrow up and puts ear buds back in*
Pam: *yanks ear buds out* Cris!! If we are running we can at least talk about the book. Two birds one stone!
Cris: Right! It was SOOO good! Leo! Licking stars! I guess I can see why you want to run. Ok ready?
Pam: Yep! Water bottle is full and ready to rock and roll!
Cris: Shall we recap?
“Front Man Leo Nash from the world-famous rock band, Nash, is the last person on earth Samantha Williams would trust. She’s already learned about loving a celebrity the hard way and isn’t signing up for another lesson.
Every time Sam gives Leo attitude, he wants to knock that chip off her fragile little shoulder. What the hell did he ever do to her, anyway? He’s not used to women treating him like he’s poisonous, and he isn’t about to let her run away every time he gets close. He’s had enough of people running away to last him a lifetime…when this one runs, he gives chase. But, catching Sam isn’t as hard as he thought.
The sexual attraction between them is so thick, Sam can practically hold it in her hand. There’s no way she can deny herself the promise of pleasure being with Leo would provide.
But, pleasure always comes with pain and when secrets are revealed and trust is challenged, who will run and who will chase?”
Pam: Ok I have to start by saying this series has proven itself not only as a single book but a collection of stories that encompasses a view on todays modern family. These characters are the modern family! With Sam and Leo Kristen has added to this family in a big way. I love both Sam and Leo!!
Cris: Same here. Leo specifically! I didn’t expect much from him since we only heard a few things about him from the last book. But damn Kristen was able to reveal a lot of him here. A different kind of revelation I almost wanted to snatch someone with tattoo stars and lick them! (LOL)
Pam: You know what else I loved about this book? I love that we a see a different side to a “Rock & Roll God”! Leo has a softer side and after years in the business he knows what her wants. One word *sips water bottle* Sam!
Cris: Yeah, its pretty unique and I gotta say I love how Kristen has introduced him to us. He has his own issues but he never let those issues get in the way between him and Sam. I get that he is afraid to commit, too, but as his feelings grow, he knows he won’t be able to resist Sam so instead of pushing her away, he embraced the fact that she is someone he knows he can’t live without so he had overcome his fears and just let his emotions go with the flow.
Pam: And how about Sam? I so was not a fan in Come Away With Me! But I feel that she has grown and I enjoyed seeing her interact with Natalie and Luke as well as baby Olivia! I will never look at a dirty diaper again without a chuckle! *Trips and falls flat on butt*
Cris: *uncontrolled laughter* Are you ok?
Pam: Ok maybe running and talking wasn’t one of my better ideas? *shakes head*
Cris: Maybe we should get a head start on the cupcakes?
Pam: Agreed! Lemon or Chocolate?
Cris: *smiles* Both! Let’s go and we can eat and talk!
Pam: Cupcakes were a great idea! *pulling the wrapper off the cupcake* Yummy! So Sam had some heavy issues in this book. She has been burned by the celebrity world once before. It was really hard for her to open and trust. What did you think?
Cris: I hated her until half of the book either! LOL. I mean who says no to LEO and his stars? She nearly broke my heart in chapter five, I wanted to scream and say NOOOOOO!!! Don’t do that to him!
“You knew the score. It was just sex. Really good sex! I finally fucked a rockstar. Thanks.”
Well its everyone’s dream to be able to f*** a rockstar, I know! But Leo doesn’t deserve to be treated like that considering his intentions are pure and he’s always good in showing her how much he wants her. I can tell the man was really hurt…
“You wanna fuck a rockstar, sugar? I didn’t fuck you last night. But I’ll sure as hell fuck you now! He spanks me again and then grips my hip, bruising me, and does exactly what he promised. He fucks me. HARD…ANGRY…HURT…
Pam: Sometimes you don’t know where your heart will lay and Sam’s happen to fall at Leo’s side. *sigh*
Cris: Well I’m happy that she realized it sooner rather than later!
Pam: I also come to adore the family interactions! Game night was too funny! It was like a Hasbro commercial waiting to happen! The family that plays together stays together!
Cris: That’s what I love about Kristen! The humor and fun is always there. She knows how we love the Montgomery clan and their extended family members so she always make sure to include them and give each a spotlight without overlapping the others. Remember the scene with Will and Meg??? OMG! I didn’t really expect him to do that! And I fell for him even more!
KRISTEN and ORIGINALITY? Goes well with each other!
Pam: All fun and jokes aside Kristen has done a remarkable job of interlocking characters that leave you wanting more. As the books progress so do the characters. It is truly genius on Kristen’s part because not only is she creating a series that funny, warm, and entertaining she has made it so we want more. All I have to say is CELEB!! Safe With Me is going to be amazeballs!! Bring it on!! I am ready for some action!
Cris: What crazy thing are you going to make me doe next? *shakes head* Join the police academy?
Pam: *snickers* Well…maybe! You never know! Could be fun! You know you love my crazy ideas! *winks*
