Synopsis from Goodreads
There are a million reasons why I need to stop thinking about Taylor D’Angelo naked.
She’s too young for me, for starters.
She’s too ambitious.
She’s my job.
Romance was the last thing on my mind when I agreed to look into her stalker as a favor.
Now, she’s all I can think about–and in every position, I can imagine.
I’m not the only one obsessing.
The threats against her are intensifying along with our connection.
If I give in, if I let our bodies take over, it could draw her stalker out.
Our passion could save her.
Or it could destroy us both.
Meet Mr. August – He’ll do anything to protect her.
**Shake It Up is part of a binge read series by New York Times, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, Publishers Weekly, and #1 International bestselling author of the million-copy Stark series, J. Kenner.
Each book in the series is a STANDALONE novel with NO cliffhanger and a guaranteed HEA!
Taylor is the stage manager for The Man of the Month competition at The Fix; following the dramatic events at the end of Turn Me On it is obvious Taylor has been keeping secrets and now those secrets have caught up to her. threatening everything she has worked so hard to build.
Landon is a police officer and close friend of The Fix’s resident security Brent. Sparks have flown between Landon and Taylor for a long time. However, the age difference and Landon’s own baggage have prevented him from making a move. Taking on the role of protector comes naturally for Landon although he has a personal interest in making sure Taylor remains safe.
Tension runs high throughout Shake It Up form the incredible chemistry and fireworks between Taylor and Landon to the thriller element of the skeletons in Taylor’s closet rattling the future she is trying to build. Unable to deny the current flowing between them the relationship and connection between Taylor and Landon progresses quickly.
I really liked the way in which both Taylor and Landon were able to work through the emotional baggage that has been holding them back in all aspects of their personal lives. I especially liked how Taylor was determined to take control of her life when she has spent most of her life having her actions dictated by the specters that have constantly haunted her. Some things are worth fighting for – love, friendship and a magnificent support system are high on the list 🙂
