    I'm a reader, not a writer, so my reviews tend to be quick and painless. I buy a book, read it, love it or hate it. Leave a review.

    I loved Jude and Derek's story. I absolutely, positively want a Derek Wolfe in my life. And even though I'm not a country music fan, I think I really want Jude's next album :)

    This is the 3rd book in the series, and quite possibly my favorite. Highly recommend!

    I started off liking this one even more than Borrowing Blue, but just like BB, this one dragged at about 60%. A lot of the sex was fade-to-black at that point and I'm pretty sure there was only one more steamy sex scene after that.

    Jude turned out to be one of those sweet, charitable men with a heart made of gold, which I dearly love, and there was a promise of healing/comfort, but it never happened.

    The sex during the first half was smutty and dirty and super fun to read. Stars for first half: 4

    I can still recommend this one to my fellow smut-lovers!

    This is the third book in this series and I enjoyed it more than book 2, though not as much as book 1, which is still my favorite.

    This is the third book in this series and I enjoyed it more than book 2, though not as much as book 1, which is still my favorite.

    Jude is a famous country singer and he has been deep in the closet for his whole life. His last relationship was 6 years ago and he has been celibate ever since, because he's too afraid someone will out him....being famous and all. The only one who knows that he's gay is his brother Blue and his ex boyfriend. Jude is also very lonely.

    When Derek enters Jude's life as his new bodyguard, things get even harder (<- see what I did there) for Jude. There is an instant attraction and Jude would love to climb his new bodyguard like a tree.

    What Jude doesn't know is that Derek is also gay and he's hiding even deeper in the closet than Jude.

    A sudden threat from Jude's ex boyfriend, makes things very clear between the two of them and they start jumping each others bones....in secret ofcourse. These two were very hot together.

    After a while though, Jude doesn't want to hide anymore. He knows his family will stand by him and he just wants to be himself. Problem is...Derek is not ready to leave the safety of his closet.

    Derek pissed me off a bit. He was ready to let the love of his life go, because he didn't want to upset his family. I would have understood his reasoning better, if he would have been close with his family...but he wasn't. The only person who actually gave a shit about Derek was Jude. So yeah...

    I enjoyed this story, but for me book 1 was still better. It dragged a bit in the second half and it wasn't as funny as book 1. I'm very curious to see who's book will be next.

    I just can't help it... I love this series. Jude was my favorite so far.

    Sure the second half was not as good as the first but still highly enjoyable for reading during the holidays.

    Gimme me the next.

    I really like this series. Skipped book 2 as it wasn't calling to me and some of the reviews had me a little worried. Plus after meeting Jude in book 1 I've been wanting to read his story.

    All of these can be read as standalones IMO, even though there's some character cross-over.

    These are very easy reads. Low angst. At times a little cheesy (though I didn't think this one had as many cheesy lines as book 1). Very sweet. Nice steam.

    This one has a stalker-ish storyline but honestly it wasn't overdone and wasn't the sole focus. It was more about Jude and Derek falling in love and being in the closet. The stalker bit shows up here and there.

    There's lots more gay Marian boys so I'm excited to see who's next and I really hope it's Griff!

    Superstar Country Singer, Jude's life

    requires a lot of security. That's where Derek, with his huge muscles, 6'6" frame, ex-Marine comes in, as Jude's new bodyguard.

    The men have instant chemistry, snarky banter, and sassiness. There a a few people trying to get to Jude, including an ex from 6 years ago, but Derek keeps him safe on tour and at home on break, when Jude sees his family. We have loved the big Marian clan previously, and here again they shine. When the ex shows up, it shakes Jude. Derek wants nothing more than to hold Jude close and comfort him. They each get their wish when a kiss turns into an explosion of want, need passion and deep emotion.

    Neither Jude nor Derek are "out", so their heated times with each other are private. Finally they each admit to the other they have fallen in love, and the men are so happy, totally dedicated, and caring. We even get some first times. After a stalker and the creepy ex continue to taunt, Jude decides to come out, but Derek's not ready.

    This is beautifully written, very engaging, and super sexy ! You will be happy you read this lovely story !

    This author rocks !

    Highly recommended. ENJOY !

    I liked this book better than the first in the series, even though it was still heavy on the melodrama and random plot points that went nowhere. What can I say? I'm a sucker for the bodyguard falling in love with his client trope.

    The last half kind of dragged, but the ending was a really cute HEA, puppies and all.

    Closer to 2.5 stars rounded up because smex.

    3.5 to 4* My first read of 2017

    Having found 'Borrowing Blue' a breathe of fresh air with it being both funny and sweet yet hot and sexy I obviously wanted to continue on with this series. Jude and Wolfe had intrigued me in 'Blue' and I'll admit I was hoping their book was next but it was James's instead which turned out to be a nice easy read but missing the spark and humour of 'Blue' but now it's Jude's turn.

    3.5 to 4* My first read of 2017

    Having found 'Borrowing Blue' a breathe of fresh air with it being both funny and sweet yet hot and sexy I obviously wanted to continue on with this series. Jude and Wolfe had intrigued me in 'Blue' and I'll admit I was hoping their book was next but it was James's instead which turned out to be a nice easy read but missing the spark and humour of 'Blue' but now it's Jude's turn.

    Despite the title (I mean seriously Jumping Jude?) I enjoyed this book, I loved both Jude and Wolfe two men living a lie who find each other and when it's just them it's perfect but when life intrudes Jude is the superstar once more and Wolfe the bodyguard relegated to the back of the room putting so much distance between them.

    Jude is hiding his real self for several reasons, his status and a terrible breakup that hurt him to his core are the main ones.

    Wolfe however has a homophobic family and always envisaged living the lie, never being able to openly love someone. He can't imagine coming out to his family or the media intrusion that would follow any hint of a relationship with Jude.

    The question is can these two conqueror the insurmountable odds and find a way to make their relationship work?

    This is a lovely sweet and yes hot romantic read, I still didn't like it as much as 'Blue' but I'm looking forward to seeing which Marion is next.

    I have to add (just because it will bug me if I don't) that the 'baddie' part was a bit bizarre, I know it was just a means to an end but I still needed a bit more for it to work, I know I'm being picky here but still....

    An enjoyable read but I think book 2 was my fav in this series. Jude & Derek were great together but it almost felt like the story was going through the motions and I was able to predict the plot and watch it unfold. This is not to take away from the characters- I liked Jude for all his vulnerability and Derek was smokin, but how does a big Alpha bodyguard stay so closed in the closet ? That annoyed the heavens out of me ! Worth the read if you enjoy sweet & fluffy with relatively low an

    This book had me in a book hangover for over a week and I still don't know what to say.
