Book Review: Shut Up and Kiss Me by Jessica Lemmon


Shut Up and Kiss Me

by Jessica Lemmon




Releasing December 6, 2016



Jessica Lemmon’s heartfelt Lost Boys series returns as a steamy kiss stirs things up between a cocky college boy and the girl who won’t give him the time of day.

Caden Wilson is away at school chasing a bright future when a car accident rattles his brain and takes his voice away. Now he’s living at home again, faced with the prospect of losing his speech forever. Worse, his therapist just so happens to be a girl he knows… and despises. But as her gentle touch breaks down his barriers, Cade can’t deny feeling the heat.

Tasha Montgomery nearly watched Cade die on that lonely stretch of road. She knows how lucky he is just to be alive, and how grateful he should be that she’s helping him. But he doesn’t need words to express his distaste for her. Which is why Tasha’s caught off-guard when Cade lets his kiss do the talking—and puts a smile on both their faces.

Before long, Tasha’s falling hard. She just hopes that, once he’s recovered, Cade has the courage to speak up for the promises their bodies have made.



My Rating:

Favorite Quotes:


If memory serves, you used the words ‘mind-blowing,’ ‘tooth-tingling,’ and ‘knee-numbing.’


My ex-boyfriend didn’t use a bat, but he did start playing the field. There were a lot more girls in that field than I first realized.


Cade was as immune to me as if he’d been vaccinated.


I didn’t see the point in being so in love with him I couldn’t see straight. But I was.   My heart needed a lobotomy.



My Review:


My infatuation with Jessica Lemmon continues – I just can’t help myself, I love her style! I have now read five of her mouthwatering books, and have adored each and every one.   Tasha and Cade’s story was engaging, relevant, and sweet. It was brimming with humor, delicious steam, and heart squeezing exchanges. As with all Ms. Lemmon’s stories, these characters were uniquely flawed and stubborn – while at the same time they are also highly endearing and scrumptious. I fear I have an addiction, I want to read every word this talented author cares to scribble.
