About YOU’RE STILL THE ONE:
Love is one dare neither of them can take…
Arabella Stone, Nashville’s darling, is eager to shuck her prim-and-proper rep, and a few wild months spent checking items off her ” summer bucket list” is the way to do it. First up: kiss the man she’s crushed on since she wore a training bra, the bad boy of country himself, Blue bassist Charlie Tucker.
For Charlie, a beautiful woman flirting with him isn’t out of the norm–but a beautiful woman bolting after the hottest kiss of his life sure is. And when he finds out his kiss-and-run Cinderella is none other than Arabella Stone, daughter of his label’s CEO, he knows he’s in trouble. Because not only is she a Stone, she’s also his employee for the next few months at the recording studio he just bought.
Over the course of one thrilling summer, Arabella and Charlie chip away at her bucket list and fight the simmering attraction between them…knowing that once it’s all over, so is their time together.
She was totally stressing.
This wasn’t anything like she’d imagined. First of all, Tyler and Sherry’s neighborhood was darling, but when Charlie had suggested their home as the ideal location to go skinny-dipping, she’d envisioned a huge estate with a pool to rival the Playboy Mansion. What she got was a cute, modest, old-style, southern home on a quiet cul-de-sac.
Charlie had explained that this was typical Magnolia Springs. Here, they didn’t need a huge gated community or acres and acres of land. People didn’t care about money or celebrity. The only things that mattered were how kind you were, what team you rooted for (hint: always say the Saints), and how spicy you seasoned your seafood.
While that was all well and good, and Arabella appreciated the charm of the neighborhood, he was overlooking a huge benefit from the sprawling acreage of most celebrity homes:
Tyler’s neighbors surrounded him on three sides. The so-called privacy fence bordering the property didn’t do squat for those towering second-story windows. And while said windows currently all sat dark, the moon was heavy and half full in the sky. There was more than enough light reflecting off the surface if a wandering eye should awaken and decide to catch a peek.
As for the pool in question, it was absolutely adorable with its rushing waterfall and soothing, blue-tinted underwater lights…but it was a whole lot smaller than she’d anticipated. Like, so small it could be considered a lap pool. As in she’d be practically sitting on Charlie’s lap. Naked.
“How about this?” he said, voice low and husky in the dark. “I’ll go first.”
The rustle of fabric in the otherwise quiet night told her he was stripping down, and Arabella squeezed her eyes shut against the sudden whirlwind of emotions. That was the other thing about this little adventure of hers. It was no longer a solo dip.
Charlie would be naked, too.
A hiss of fabric sounded behind her, and Ella’s heart pounded in her ears.
Correction: Charlie was naked. Right now. Just a few feet away. Swinging free in the nonexistent breeze.
Heaven help me.
Soft footsteps crept toward her, and Arabella almost swallowed her tongue. Touching his bare skin would be easy—so easy—as easy as stretching a hand back and extending her fingertips. Her hands clenched at her sides.
How many nights had she lain in bed, dreaming of this very scenario? Or if not this scenario, one almost identical? Sexual tension crackling in the air, a naked Charlie within reaching distance and breathing heavily, waiting to see what she’d do next.
Of course, there were two major differences between fantasy and reality. In those dreams, Ella had also been naked…and Charlie had wanted her, too.
Charlie tugged at my heartstrings in Accidentally Married on Purpose, so I was excited to learn that Sexy Charlie was getting his own book.
Charlie Tucker is well known for his crazy antics as bass player for Blue. But as Charlie well knows, even when he tries to be good the tabloids show up at the wrong moment and twist things around to their desire. He’s sick and tired of the CEO of his record label not taking him seriously. He has an idea that could change the lives of many who need it and he thought he had found the right person to help him make it a reality. Then boom! Tabloids. While his mind is racing about how to overcome this obstacle, he notices a beautiful woman headed his way. After a very cute and hilarious meeting, they share a mind blowing kids and then she leaves. No name, no number. Just gone. Soon after the CEO he so desperately needs to impress offers him an exciting opportunity. He wants Charlie to buy his portion of a record studio in Louisiana and watch over his daughter who has just been hired as an intern there. Piece of cake, until the intern that walks in just happens to be the same woman he’d experienced the kids of a lifetime with. The kiss he still thought about.
Arabella Stone was known as Nashville’s darling. She had a job with her father’s record label all lined up, but all she really wanted to do was prove she could make it on her own. Even if it was just for a summer before she took her place at her father’s side. Always the agreeable daughter, she stayed out of trouble. Or was boring as some may say. Once she had applied for and was offered an internship at a recording studio in Louisiana for the summer without any help from her father, she was ecstatic. She promised him it would just be for the summer but something she had to do. Another thing she had to do? Make a list. It’s what she did. Miss List Maker. But this list was different. This was a bucket list for the summer and sown of the items surprised even herself. First on the “to do” list was Charlie Tucker. She had had a crush on Charlie since she was a kid. She’s determined to kiss him just one time before she leaves for the summer. She’s able to mark this one off after realizing he doesn’t recognize her at a record label event. Kiss Sexy Charlie-check. But everything changes when she walks into her internship and find out he is her boss
Charlie was instructed not to tell Arabella that he is supposed to be looking out for her, but it shouldn’t matter. They don’t have a relationship. It was just a kiss right? He’s used to one nighters and women throwing themselves at him. This isn’t any different. But if that’s the case, why can’t he get her out of his mind? He knows nothing can come of this. He is her boss and she’s an intern. Period.
This story is so much fun. Charlie and Arabella mesh perfectly. I love the cute rhetoric between the two. Rachel has a tendency to make me change my favorite book of hers every time she writes a new one. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series. I absolutely love the way she brings people in from previous books. It feels as if I’m part of the family she’s writing about and we never truly have to say goodbye to a character we love.
