Shaft On Tour #5
by Cat Mason
Henry Richardson is the man in the shadows. He’s the calm and cool protector that everyone relies on to restore order among the chaos that is Shaft.
After having his heart broken, not once, but twice, Henry is determined that it’s safer for everyone involved that he remain on the sidelines. He is content to hide behind his trademark shades and watch as his adopted family thrive in the limelight. When the live-in nanny for Shaft quits with no notice just before a much needed vacation, her replacement is nothing like Big Man expected.
Rae Sloan is sassy and independent. She loves kids; working at the daycare center inside Ironsound Records was her dream job until she was offered something more.
A live-in position with one of the hottest bands in the country.
When Henry and Rae collide, the tension is through the roof. Neither one of them are emotionally available, but what happens when those layers you have to protect yourself are suddenly stripped away? When push comes to shove, Henry will have to make a choice that will change his life forever. Can Henry find love, or will he lose everything while fighting the demons within himself?
“X-rated Scrabble around here is serious business. One wrong play, and it can turn into pandemonium.”
“Hunter’s damn near foaming at the mouth watching me plate up the last slices. If I didn’t know any better, I’d think he was rabid.”
“I get that I said something that I shouldn’t have, but we all have dark pieces in our pasts, Henry. If not, the light wouldn’t be worth fighting for.”
“Don’t try to understand Bitchenese… One false translation is all it takes for all hell to break loose.”
“‘He’s your beau?’ she asks, waggling her brows suggestively. ‘Well you should’ve said somethin’ before I got my hopes up. I thought you brought me home a hunk of the Florida Keys. You really shouldn’t disappoint an old woman like that, Rae Marie. If we weren’t in front of the stud here I’d take my spoon to your ass.”
“Placing her glass of chocolate milk back on the table, she scrunches up her nose. ‘If a boy even breathes on me, I scream and tell him that my daddy will whoop his ass.’”
“Sitting back on her walker, Iva rests her elbows on the handles. ‘I don’t know what happened, and for your sake, Hunk, I hope it wasn’t your doing. I’m old. My back and legs hurt, so I can’t kick your ass, but I’ll shoot it if you hold still enough,’ she chuckles.”
I am so grooving on this series, Book 5 in this series and Ms. Mason just keeps getting better as a writer. The plot was well paced and entertaining, the humor bubbled, and the story line continued the seductive and addicting lure established in the previous volumes. The sensuality is beyond hawt! In addition, I was overjoyed to see the Big Man get his chance at a HEA. One more book to go.
