Title: Shut Up and Kiss Me
Cade: I tried. I really tried. I should be out of this small town by now, finishing my law degree and partnering up with my buddies, but I couldn’t resist one last street race. Now I’m sidelined in the hospital, and while my injuries will heal, I’m not so sure my voice will return. What kind of attorney can’t talk? Yeah, exactly. I’m afraid that I won’t be able to come back from this... until Tasha Montgomery reawakens every competitive bone in my body.
Tasha: I nearly watched Cade Wilson die on that lonely stretch of road. He’s damn lucky just to be alive, even if he doesn’t realize it. I know he’s destined for bigger and better things, but I don’t mind helping him get there as he relearns everything he took for granted. Cade’s a good student, a real perfectionist; I can tell how much his stutter bothers him. But when he lets his kisses do the talking, everything else disappears. And one day, maybe he’ll be able to tell me that he wants me—as much as I want him.

Holy smokin’ hot, Batman! The long wait is over ladies. We finally got the second installment of the Lost Boys and man oh man, this was so worth the wait! After being left with a twist and cliffhanger in the first book, this picks up a few months later.
Still trying to recover from the street racing accident, Cade’s speech hasn’t returned which means therapy. So what’s the issue? Probably the fact that his therapist is the girl he tried picking up at a frat party, getting shot down. Worse? She actually cares about his well being, is kind, gentle and he can’t stop sneaking peeks at her when he thinks she’s not looking. Oh, did I mention that he’s refusing to actually “do” the therapy? Yep. So every week, it’s the same thing. She comes over, he ignores her and after she realizes he’s not going to cooperate, she does her college homework with her headphones on, ignoring him back. You guessed it, this is totally working….not.
Tasha is Rena’s bestie. You remember Rena from the first one, right? The one that actually gets Devlin. Sorry, I digress. Tasha is the lucky therapist that’s been struggling to get Cade to do “anything” related to therapy. And she’s not even a speech therapist, she’s a physical therapist. But she’s doing Cade’s dad a favor because he’s done her dad favors and, let’s face it, she’s trying to win daddy’s approval, so…yeah. But, she also has an amazing heart and legitimately wants him to get better. Especially after watching his friends bail on him after the race. She becomes determined to get him back to him and is willing to do anything to make that happen.
After months of no luck trying to get Cade to participate in therapy, she’s asked (ok, demanded) to stop helping him by her father. Despite the leverage her father holds over her, she chooses to defy her father’s demands and sticks with the therapy sessions anyway. While trying a different tactic, Tasha comes up with the best plan of attack ever! ORAL THERAPY! Although her definition of oral therapy and Cade’s weren’t exactly the same, the both end up getting what they want…and it’s the beginning of the best anticipation meets reward.
Speaking of anticipation. There is lots of it in this one, and worth every moment. And don’t forget that oral therapy. There’s plenty of THAT going on too. But there’s also an amazing underlining story. Both Tasha and Cade have some personal things to sort out. And through the support they give each other, they’re able to work on their issues individually (which I really enjoyed). One didn’t tell the other how to fix it, they did it on their own, because of the support of each other.
Of course I’d recommend this book. I recommend this series! I’m kind of sad though. Now I’m wishing there was another brother for this to continue. I miss them already.
