Availability: Ready to download

What if you had everything in the world you wanted...except the man you never knew you needed? Shaw Jennings, the seductive, enigmatic owner of Body Electric Tattoo works hard and plays even harder. He’s built a life he’s proud of, and though that doesn’t include a significant other, he’s got plenty of sexy men to keep his bed warm at night. None of them have ever made Sha What if you had everything in the world you wanted...except the man you never knew you needed? Shaw Jennings, the seductive, enigmatic owner of Body Electric Tattoo works hard and plays even harder. He’s built a life he’s proud of, and though that doesn’t include a significant other, he’s got plenty of sexy men to keep his bed warm at night. None of them have ever made Shaw sit up and take notice for long, though. But that all changes when a famous rock star walks through his door. Trent Knox had the world in the palm of his hand as the lead singer of TBD, one of the biggest rock bands in history…until the day he walked away. A getaway to South Haven Island seems like the perfect place for Trent to find himself again and reignite his passion for music. But what he never expects is to find his muse in a six-five, tatted-up badass whose sinful smile he can’t get out of his mind. The only problem? Trent’s a notorious womanizer, and Shaw isn’t interested in being someone’s experiment—muse or otherwise. But in a town as small as this one, Shaw is finding it more and more difficult to keep the persistent rocker at arm’s length. As the tension between them builds, maybe it’s time to finally give in and get carried away with something a little bit like...desire. The novels in the South Haven Series are m/m romance standalones that focus on different couples. While each can be read out of order, reading A Little Bit Like Love (Book 1) first is recommended for maximum reading pleasure.

My apologies to Jackson and Lucas, but I even liked it more than A Little Bit Like Love. Shaw and Trent were on fire this entire book and it was just amazing. Their sexual tension almost drove me absolutely insane, but in the best way. Their story was electric with the heat, the romance, the gripping tension between them. There wasn't a ton of angst or drama thrown in which I found really wonderful. Because instead of having a lot of drama pulling them apart we got to see the sizzling chemistry that was pushing them together instead. Which had me going mad! I was legit screaming at my Kindle for them to just get it on already. All I can say is that Shaw has a lot more strength than I would if I had Trent. I loved it though. That crazy feeling it gave me when I was reading and hoping with all my strength that they would get together already. That tension was my favorite part of the story and the reason I know I will be re-reading this many times in the future. Overall, if you're a fan of MM this is the book you need to be reading. Brooke Blaine knows how to do some hot man on man loving so if you're not reading her yet you're missing out. ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review.

Brooke Blaine is one of those authors who remind me why I love MM romance. If you have read A Little Bit Like Love you will definitely feel the difference: While that one was on the angstier side A Little Bit Like Desire is completely drama-free - and I'm not complaining. Shaw's and Trent's story is lovely and sexy. Both of them are pretty easy-going and laid-back. They communicate, especially Shaw has a gift to grasp the essence of a problem and offer a quick solution or knows what to say to comfort or give advice. His thoughtfulness is one of my favorite things about him. Shaw doesn't even realize his appeal and that makes him even more attractive. Also, the whole slacks, vest and tattoos getup? Sexay! For being a rockstar, Trent is very balanced and even-tempered, yet he has this allure and charismatic pull that draws me to characters like him. He didn't have any major freak-outs, was sweet and cheeky sometimes, smoldering hot and sexy at other times and very, very lovable. Even more so because he didn't capitalize on his rockstar status or his good looks. Many times he felt like the cute boy next door. “Wow,” “Oh,” he said. “That was a good ‘wow.’” “A very good wow.” “Thank you,” he said. “You look seriously fucking ‘wow’ yourself.” What this story has in spades is sexual tension. It builds deliciously slowly between Trent and Shaw and I read this book holding my breath, waiting for them to finally, FINALLY get on with it...only to get the equivalent of blue balls for the umpteenth time. I sang a quick Hallelujah when they finally made it to the home run. TEASER COURTESY OF THE AUTHOR I loved seeing Lucas and Jackson again but the one person who never fails to capture my affection is Bash. That guy has a heart of gold and his mischievous personality is so freaking adorable I want to hug him whenever he's in a scene. Ahhh! I can't wait for his story! I was sold on this story when I heard that Shaw would be matched with a rockstar, which coincidentally is one of my favorite sub-genres. Brooke Blaine made the best out of it. A Little Bit Like Desire is a fast-paced, quick read and has a very pleasant flow and Brooke's trademark cheeky and naughty humor. If you have never read MM Romance before but want to pop this particular cherry, I can't recommend this series enough. It has everything - emotional depth, excellent story-telling and characters you can't help but fall in love with. I’d fallen in love with Trent slowly and without warning, so completely that I felt like I couldn’t breathe when we were apart. Maybe that was why I’d shied away from falling for someone for so long. Because I knew that once my heart attached itself to another, there would be no way of tearing them apart.

    The rock star and the tattoo artist trope gets the Brooke Blaine treatment in this delightful second instalment in the South Haven series. I absolutely loved this one, no angst, no drama, just a great romance with two people who connected with each other on an emotionally satisfying level and who had chemistry enough to burn the pages.

The whole story really just is a pleasure to read as Bash does a wee bit of secret match making to put two guys who are polar opposites on the surface in each other's orbit. Their initial encounter opens the book and be prepared for the temperature to hit boiling point, man the scene is scorching hot. But it's way more than just physical. They connect on a friendship level too and everything is just an easy extension of that into a relationship. Lots of humour and appearances from the rest of the gang all made this a thoroughly deserved five star read. #ARC kindly provided by the author in return for an honest and unbiased review.

I was waiting for a conflict of some kind, but it never came. This book works as a standalone. I'm so ready for Bash's story!

    3.5 stars. I enjoy Brook Blaine's books a lot and it pains me to say this but this is probably my least favorite from her. And that just sucks because Shaw's book was one of my most anticipated books. The reason is that I had a hard time connecting to the characters. And I was hoping that we saw more of a development as a couple between Shaw and Trent. Otherwise the chemistry was hot and of course, I loved all the characters.

    It was so good to be back in South Haven and with all the boys. A Little Bit Like Desire was fabulous. Shaw and Trent has amazing chemistry and the build up to them finally caving in to one another was absolutely delicious.

They’re very comfortable together doing very mundane things which only made me enjoy their growing friendship and I was just waiting for them to give in cause they both wanted one another.

They’re very comfortable together doing very mundane things which only made me enjoy their growing friendship and I was just waiting for them to give in cause they both wanted one another. Big time. Shaw’s friends from South Have were there too. Bash, Lucas and Jackson were terrific and added humor to the story. These guys have so much fun and are loyal to one another. Whenever Shaw needed to vent or some support Bash and Lucas was there. A Little Bit Like Desire is a wonderful and easy to read MM romance. I’m not nearly done with these incredible South Haven guys. I’m ready for Bash’s book!

I literally flew through this book, devoured every word, threw my panties to the wind for Trent and Shaw like a cat in heat, giggled and smiled like a darn love-sick teenager; I did it all and it was GREAT! This is definitely one of those "read it in one sitting" book. You'll devour it too, I just know you will. I truly loved both main guys. I adored Shaw's big bear ways. He's so big and protective and tough and tattooed but that man has such a tender, loving heart. I love how much he cares for his friends and his brother (and of course Trent, duh). I need me a Shaw, damn it!!! I just want to climb him like a tree and snuggle close (and I'm really not a touchy-touchy person so that should tell you how much I love that man). As for Trent. GAH! Literally "Gah" isn't even a word but it's truly all I can muster when I think about that man. Gah!!!! Trent was so sexy and edgy and mmmmmmmm just real delicious, ya feel me. From his leather pants to his raunchy rock songs and totally indecent performances, hot DAMN! *waves panties like a white flag* I canna take no more ⚰🤤💦 Together, Shaw and Trent were serious fiya (🔥). There was so much sexual tension between the two it was amazing. All in all, I clearly enjoyed the heck out of this book. The plot, the characters, the setting, the friendships, the sexy times, all of it!!! If I wasn't so worried for the survival of my ovaries, I'd definitely be screaming "ME NEEDS MORE" right about now.   I honestly love this South Haven series so much. I wasn't too, too sure I wanted to read Bash's book at first (which is the next book in this series) but by the end of ALBLD I was convinced. I love this group of friends too much to pass it up. I might actually reread A Little Bit Like Love now because the few times we saw Jackson and Lucas in this one made me miss them so darn much 😭🖤

    I absolutely loved this! I couldn't put it down last night until like 3AM, it was so good. I loved Trent and Shaw's chemistry so much, from their first meeting in that dark room. They perhaps fell a little too quickly, but their connection was so great and intense that I didn't mind. I thought the fact that they were just strangers and didn't know what the other looked like in their "dark room" encounter and when Shaw finds out, that it would be this whole source of drama, but thankfully this bo I absolutely loved this!

I thought the fact that they were just strangers and didn't know what the other looked like in their "dark room" encounter and when Shaw finds out, that it would be this whole source of drama, but thankfully this book didn't fall into that manufactured pit fall. In fact this book was pretty light on the angst because honestly aside from worried from Shaw and some doubts for a little bit, there was no miscommunication or major drama when there didn't need to be. It was so refreshing just reading these two falling in love and being able to figure out any potential problems - with some help from Lucas, the MC from the first book. With the way big record companies are portrayed in books - and movies and tv shows - It makes me wonder how big celebrity singers put up with it...well, i guess some might just like the fame and the money, but they seem to like to control their singers and bands, and that doesn't sound fun. I'm sure there are some big record companies that aren't bad...but I don't doubt that a lot of the big ones don't allow a lot of creative (and personal sometimes, if a person isn't straight) freedom. This was fun and entertaining to read and I loved Trent and Shaw, individually and together. They just had that instant connection from the minute they touched each other in that dark room, not know who it was but still feeling something more with each other. So much that they couldn't get the "dark room guy" out of their heads. Loved this. And I can't wait for whoever the next book will be about - maybe Bash, who is a sweet, funny, interesting character. (view spoiler)[Also at the end I noticed how he wasn't there when Trent had his concert with the others and I wonder why that is...hmm. (hide spoiler)] Definitely recommend for those who enjoyed the first in this series. I dare say this one was even better than the first, I think. Two thumbs up from me :D

    4.5 ⭐ Rounded up because usually I don't like books with mcs in the showbitz, but this one worked really well for me. I liked the plot, the steamy scenes, the characters and their relationship development (they talk a lot! There's more talk than steam and it works just fine). I also loved that there were the characters from the previous book 😊 Can't wait to read Bash's story! 😍

    Some things were too cliche (i.e., the band members nicknames, their style of dress) and I have to admit it bothered me enough to point out. Also, there was more telling than showing. The relationship development felt off. Overall, I enjoyed it though, just wasn't a slamdunk. -Rockstar and tattoo artist -Romantic -Low angst -Good chemistry -Alternating POVs -Feel good vibe. 3.5 Stars 3.5 Stars

I LOVED the way these two experienced each other for the first time, the way they are so completely comfortable together from the start, the way they both kind of dive in head first and can’t believe how the other one makes them feel, and the easy way they make it work.

I LOVED the way these two experienced each other for the first time, the way they are so completely comfortable together from the start, the way they both kind of dive in head first and can’t believe how the other one makes them feel, and the easy way they make it work. If you are looking for tons of angst, drama, and a book ripping your emotions apart, this is not the book for you; A Little Bit Like Desire is fun and fresh but also smart and sexy and I loved every minute of it. Months after he walked away from his lead singer gig with TBD, a highly successful rock band, Trent Knox is in South Haven trying to write some music and figure out what happens next in his life. What he doesn’t expect is to feel something so deeply for Shaw Jennings, the tattoo artist he has hired for his next ink or the fact that they’ve met before. Sometimes you read a book and it simply takes you away to a happy place and makes you forget everything going on around you and that is exactly what happened with this book. I was immersed in this world, with these people, and it was a very happy place to be. I hated watching Trent struggle and know that he was questioning everything that had gone down and his own talent, but I loved that Shaw was there to lift him up and make him believe in himself once again. While Shaw did have a few moments of self doubt, he was a rock and definitely helped Trent see there was life after TBD. I loved how Shaw’s friends jumped in to make Trent feel welcome and how Trent was finally able to show the world his true self. My one complaint is that the characters weren’t fully developed; we didn’t see much in the way of what shaped them into the men they’ve become, but because I loved the story of their relationship so much I was able to put that aside for the most part. For me there is nothing better than two people finding love when they least expect it and author Brooke Blaine delivered that big time in A Little Bit Like Desire.

He left his band. He is trying to find inspiration and purpose. And he had no clue that he would find it in the most unlikely of circumstances. Shaw Jennings owns a tattoo shop and he is a playboy that keeps men at arm's length. He's always just been about a good time and nothing more. But when their two lives collide, it is more than either of them expected. There is sexual tension, confusion, and misconceptions. Friendship. Desire. Lust. Teasing. Kisses. And they just can't seem to get enough. These guys were scorching hot together! They seriously had chemistry, but neither were perfect candidates for a relationship. Trent was just on vacation and has to deal with social media scrutiny and trying to figure out what he wants to do with his new life. And yeah he is a famous freakin' rock star! And Shaw has never really found anyone interesting enough to actually let in and get in deeper with. It was totally unexpected, and neither are quite sure where it is going. But what happens when real life encroaches and decisions need to be made? This is one brings the sexual tension, steam, and humor, but it is also about hope, trust, faith, inspiration. They both needed to believe in themselves to have a chance at anything more...if they are brave enough to even try. I really loved both Shaw and Trent's personalities and their dynamic together. This also brings back Lucas and Jackson from A Little Bit Like Love and the other side characters including the vibrant and outgoing, Bash, Shaw's twin brother, Kevin, and his employee, Kyan.

Wait. ~ Missy, 5 stars *** I was promised that A Little Bit Like Desire started off with a bang, and -- hoo boy -- did it ever! *fans self* The chemistry between Shaw and Trent lit up this story immediately, and kept sparking and flaring throughout the entire book. And, what can I say? I could not put it down. I mean, can you blame me? The inked badass tattoo artist meets rootless famous rock star - combined with Ms. Blaine's engaging, heartfelt writing - there was no way this was going to be anything less than a completely compelling read. And, of course, it was. I was sucked in immediately - first by the undeniable sexual chemistry between Trent and Shaw, and then by the slow, careful emotional development of their storyline. It was a perfect balance of dead sexy and seductively sweet and it effortlessly stole my heart. I loved the role of secondary characters here, and the glimpses of bromance that added a fun extra layer of depth to this story. I appreciated that this story is pretty low on angst, which allowed my heart to enjoy the ride and really attach itself to these fantastically easy-to-love men. A Little Bit Like Desire is a quick, easy read that sizzles with sexiness and is jam packed with the exact sort of sweet emotion I need to leave my heart full and sated. Another South Haven hit! ~ Shelly, 4.5 Stars

    I kind of really loved this one! This was almost perfection for me, almost. I loved how easy it read. I loved that there was no drama and it really just read as a meet and fall in love kind of story. Sometimes that is all you really need right? Right. The only thing holding me back from that full on 5★ rating is I needed just a bit more something. Not drama, no way, I liked that there was none. Maybe a bit more romance?

I love the setting and I love the friendships. Bring on Bash!!

But, lo and behold, Trent Knox finds his muse in Shaw Jennings. That was one of my favorite start for a book. The love story wasn't insta-love. Shaw and Trent start forming a great friendship. Shaw treats Trent like any normal guy and it is such a breath of fresh air for Trent. They have so many great little moments together that brings real intimacy at the fore-front. I truly enjoy reading about these little things that makes a relationship special. This book had a ton of such scenes. The story was: - told in a Dual POV - Very little angst - Sarcasm humor - Rockstar and Tattoo artist romance - All the fluff and Unicorn WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT FROM A GAY ROMANCE...???

    This is simply deliciously sweet romance between tattoo artist Shaw Jennings and rockstar Trent Knox. Shaw is the tattoo shop owner and friends of previous heroes Lucas and Jackson. Shaw is in his early 30s and never plan to have a relationship. He is such a nice guy and I can't believe he never have a boyfriend ever.

Shaw is the tattoo shop owner and friends of previous heroes Lucas and Jackson. Shaw is in his early 30s and never plan to have a relationship. He is such a nice guy and I can't believe he never have a boyfriend ever. Trent just left his band due to artistic restriction and decided to do something on his own. He ended up at South Haven and rented a house from Bash, who is also one of Shaw's buddies. The secretive first encounter between Shaw and Trent was mysterious and titillating. I like that when they finally figure it out, it was all smooth and natural without having the dramatic reveal. The relationship between Shaw and Trent is just so sexy and hot without angst or drama. Shaw admire Trent very much as he himself is a big fan of the band, but he didn't went all fanboy. Trent is bisexual but is not public knowledge. Now that he find himself attracted to the sexy tattoo artist, he might need to do come to terms with coming out publicly. I thought i will have to endure seeing Trent being in the closet and trying to figure out his feelings, so I'm glad that it isn't such a big issue to Trent. In fact, it was Shaw who is the one who wanted to protect Trent's image and worry about him. I'm just in awed of Shaw's protectiveness towards his lover. Shaw also very supportive of Trent's career. He's definitely a keeper. One of the things that I really enjoyed in this book is all the dialogues and playful banter between all the characters, not just between Shaw and Trent. I can listened to Bash, Jackson and Lucas talked all day long. I definitely looking forward to our very own diva Bash's story. I wonder what kind of man will finally capture his heart.

First it was Lucas and Jackson in A Little Bit Like Love, and now it is Shaw and Trent in a Little Bit Like Desire. Everything from the romance to the friendship among these quys is sweet as can be with a little bit of sexy behind the doors. Readers are going to love Shaw. He is the perfect friend, the level headed voice of reason. There isn't really anything about his character that readers will not adore. His counterpart, Trent, is a bit more lost, floundering in the new sudden path he has found himself on. Although he is incredibly different from Shaw, readers will fall in love with his level of innocence and his passion for music. The chemistry between these two, like all Brooke Blaine couples, is off the charts, and she doesn't make you wait for the good stuff. This novel starts off with a bang and the sexual tension between these two is HOT. The story progresses pretty quickly, but the relationship between the two is natural and fun. Readers get time with the guys, the romance between Shaw and Trent, and the development from lust to love. I do wish there would have been a bit more conflict, more trial and tribulations for the two, but I still found myself loving these two and the home they create. Brooke Blaine has a created another MM couple I adore. She has a way of making me fall in love with the romance (I'm not going to lie, though, the time between the sheets doesn't hurt) of it all. My heart becomes wrapped up in these men and their love. It is a bit like coming home each time. ARC received in exchange for an honest review.

This book works fairly well as a standalone, but there are scenes with Lucas and Jackson and I appreciated knowing all the connections and the full story. The book immediately jumps into some heated action, but then eases off and lets the chemistry and attraction smolder between these guys. Blaine does that well as both men are incredibly attracted to each other, but haven’t figured out where they stand with each other as neither thinks the other is interested in men. Shaw doesn’t hide who he is, it’s just that Trent doesn’t know him well, and Trent was encouraged by his record label to keep his bisexuality under wraps. But the attraction sparks along between them throughout the entire book. Read Michelle's review in its entirety here.

    The chemistry between Shaw and Trent is very hawt but the connection between them...I don't know. It felt like hero worship/gratitude mixed with a little bit of mystery and insecurity by two men that had no reason for any of that to cloud their relationship. Just as I was starting to get a feel for them as a potential couple without any of the "is he/isn't he", "sober up, dude" and "oh, it was you" the book ends and cuts to an epilogue that robbed the readers of the meat of their relationship.

They barely got to the "are we an "us"?" discussion and suddenly we jump ahead six months. It was wholly unsatisfying. I hope Bash gets more than Shaw and Trent did in his book. Oh, and I'm leaving out the part where you have to suspend disbelief that Trent could have done what he did and not be embroiled in so many lawsuits that he would have time to write music...

    Wow, this book started off HOT with an encounter in a dark room with a stranger! Shaw and Trent had amazing chemistry together, and the way their friendship/relationship built was sweet and believable. It was fun seeing the other guys, and I'm excited for Bash's story. One thing that bothered me a little was (minor spoiler) that Trent said his reason for not being openly bi was worry over how it would affect his future career, and then when they actually got together, that was never really addres Wow, this book started off HOT with an encounter in a dark room with a stranger!

One thing that bothered me a little was (minor spoiler) that Trent said his reason for not being openly bi was worry over how it would affect his future career, and then when they actually got together, that was never really addressed or discussed again, other than obviously not being an issue. Still, it was a solid addition to the series and made for a fun few hours of reading.

    Let me start by saying that the opening scene of Brooke Blaine’s newest release, A Little Bit Like Desire, is one of the HOTTEST scenes I have ever read and the fact that the encounter happens completely in the DARK, with no names, no preconceived notions, and no words just makes it that much hotter. The entire scene is shown through Shaw’s point of view, and because his friend, Bash, is the one who set up this rendezvous in total darkness, there are no thoughts of doubt or fear; in fact, the my Let me start by saying that the opening scene of Brooke Blaine’s newest release, A Little Bit Like Desire, is one of the HOTTEST scenes I have ever read and the fact that the encounter happens completely in the DARK, with no names, no preconceived notions, and no words just makes it that much hotter. The entire scene is shown through Shaw’s point of view, and because his friend, Bash, is the one who set up this rendezvous in total darkness, there are no thoughts of doubt or fear; in fact, the mystery of it…the erotic nature of the situation only amps up the pleasure felt and the exploding release that occurs. As an avid reader of Blaine’s books, I was introduced to Shaw Jennings, the hot tattoo artist, in Jackson and Lucas’ story, and with the insight provided in A Little Bit Like Love, it was clear that Shaw was not a man who needed or even wanted to settle down. He was up for no strings sex but there were never repeats in his bed, so the fact that he can’t get a certain mystery man out of his head, constantly replaying every sensual touch and arousing caress. But never in his wildest dreams would Shaw have expected his unknown partner in the dark to be someone who would change so many aspects of his life. Trent Knox may be a famous rockstar but he walked away from that life 6 months ago, needing a new direction for his career that stretches him as a musician and gives him the independence he craves. As a bisexual man, he has had to hide one side of himself from the world, making him feel incomplete, so taking Bash up on his ‘dark room’ experience is a no brainer for Trent; he just never thought that, that encounter would lead him to a man who not only helped him music but also allowed him to be himself in every way possible. Trent is absolutely a game changer for Shaw, just as much as Shaw is one for Trent. They’re both pretty intense guys - ones who commands a room and attract stares from from everyone who cross their paths, and while their pairing may not seem like it would work due to the fact they are both dominant men, they fit perfectly together and experience something with each other that they’ve never felt with anyone else. I absolutely adored Shaw and Trent’s story. The way that Brooke Blaine crafts their storyline perfectly illustrates their mutual attraction and once they both realize who the other one is, it further drives up their desire for each other and leads to some extremely steamy scenes between these glorious men. I was beyond thrilled that Blaine didn’t make things more difficult than they needed to be for Shaw and Trent. It was clear that Trent never explored the side of himself that desired men due to his image as a rockstar, but that doesn’t mean he wants to hide it or make anything between him and another man a dirty little secret, and I love that, that stigma wasn’t an issue anymore than it needed to be. A Little Bit Like Desire is one hot read but it’s also more than that…it’s about friendship…about having faith in oneself…about going after someone or something that a person wants, even if it’s scary and new, and after seeing Bash as matchmaker in Shaw and Trent’s story, I’m beyond excited that his story is up next. 4.5 Poison Apples (The Fairest of All Book Reviews)

Shaw is this... *sighs dreamily* sorry, got distracted for a moment :) he owns his own tattoo studio and he's definitely not looking for a relationship... so far, no one interested him enough to result into something more serious... but that changes when Trent shows up... he's a rock star :) literally :) ex-lead singer of one of the most popular bands, he finds his way into that small town to catch some much needed breath and hoping it will help with his writing block... and even though there are definitely some sparks between them from the start, Shaw is hesitant to act on anything, thinking that Trent is straight... so they start with sort of friendship that pretty quickly evolves into something more :) I don't want to get into more details, because this book is not super long and things move forward pretty quickly ;) so I want to avoid any spoilers whatsoever :) instead, let me jump into all the reasons why I adored this novel :) I am a huge fan of Brooke Blaine's writing style :) so naturally I was excited to read her newest story, and I was not disappointed :) written in 2 POVs, which means we have chapters from Shaw's perspective as well as chapters from Trent's point of view, it gave us a great way to see inside the heads of our main couple :) and you could really see how different they are and how they react to things changing between them... not to mention that the chemistry was off the charts hot... *fans herself* trust me, I was close to combustion from the very first chapter... yep, this one definitely starts with a bang ;) but as much as I expected a sizzlingly hot book, I was surprised by the amount of absolutely cute and adorable scenes between them... *sighs dreamily* those vulnerable moments were probably my favourite ones from the whole book :) this is the second installment in the series, so even though it works perfectly well as a standalone, we have appearances of the couple from the first book and our hero from the next installment... all those scenes do is make you more curious... to pick up the first book if you haven't already or to re-read if you inhaled it in the past and to count down the days to the release of the third one :) because let's be honest, we need Bash's story like ASAP :) like I mentioned before, I inhaled this book in one day... I started it in the morning, then were completely crushed that I have to put it down and go to work... ugh ;) but as soon as I got home, I read the rest in one sitting :) yep, it was that good :) I needed to know how it ends ;) I loved every part of it, and can highly recommend it to you guys :) definitely go grab this gem immediately :) XOXO A for more book-ish stuff visit: my blog -> https://bookworm8619.blogspot.com/ my facebook page -> https://www.facebook.com/bookworm8619/

    #SHOX left my heart bursting with love! A Little Bit Like Desire is an amazing romance, well written with hot men, some lovely secondary characters, funny scenes and a beautiful story. Shaw is definitely my kind of man! Holy freaking hotness....tattoos and with dress pants and shirts and a vest? Hell yeah! Sign me up for it! He is so cool, calm and collected that you don’t get why he is still single. But just like every man, there’s more than the eye sees and he has some more layers to uncover.

He is so cool, calm and collected that you don’t get why he is still single. But just like every man, there’s more than the eye sees and he has some more layers to uncover. I love that he knows who he is, doesn’t hide and knows what he wants. He’s that easygoing friend you can call whenever you need someone. Trent is a famous rockstar on the edge career wise. To find himself again and to think about his future, he hides in South Haven at a place his friend Bash owns. Because of his life in the spotlight he is a lot more guarded than Shaw. It’s his lost soul and the inability to do any domestic stuff, that speaks to Shaw on a deeper level. I loved the way they easily connected right from the beginning. The chemistry between them was boiling hot and rose with every page. You could feel it sizzling on your skin. A Little Bit Like Desire started with one hot scene that left my absolutely breathless and giddy for more! Definitely the bang this book is worth off! But also the thoughtfulness behind the character that Trent is, the doubts, the need, the passion, ALBLD is a little more than just romance. Brooke Blaine once again made me needy and swooning and sighing and wanting her men with her amazing writing talent. She created this South Haven community as one you want to live in. She touches me time and time again on so many levels that I can’t even put in words. I so can’t wait to see what Bash’s story will reveal, because that man is a troublemaker like no other. And I’m sure there’s also more to discover. ******ARC provided by the author for an honest review******

I adored Shaw in A Little Bit Like Love. ADORED. And this book just backed up all the reasons I adored him. Honest, blunt, sweet, charming, protective, can cook and is smexy as all get out. Add in the man is a tattoo artist and I’m just done. Trent was definitely a pleasantly hot surprise. Sweet, charismatic, talented and smexy with just the right blend of self confidence and vulnerability to make you swoon. This man was simply nummyness. From the first time Shaw and Trent collided to where they ended up at the end of the book, their journey was just all kinds of goodness. It was smexy as hell (I know I’ve already said it, but it needs to be repeated) sweet and swoon worthy with a lot of heart and low on the drama and angst. It was really all about two people colliding, finding that they connected on every level and realizing that their futures could be intertwined if they wanted it to be. As much as I adored Shaw and Trent aka SHOX, I cannot be remiss in giving props to Jackson, Lucas and Bash for the doses of friendship, heart, humor and sneakiness into the story that took it to the next level for me. I loved catching up with Jackson and Lucas and seeing how their relationship has evolved and Bash. Well, Bash is kind of everything and I cannot wait to get my hands on his book and see who is strong enough, and cunning enough, to capture his heart. ~ Copy provided by the author & voluntarily reviewed ~

    Another 5 star read from Brooke Blaine. I’m really loving this series and Trent & Shaws story is a great addition to it. I mean, who can resist a hot rocker and a sexy tattooist? Lucas and Jackson from bk 1 feature in this bk as does Bash, whose story I’m looking forward to reading next.
