VAUGHN (Love Under the Lights #2) by Ella Fox & Rochelle Paige
Release Date: September 16th
Add to Goodreads:
Gorgeous, charming, and funny, Vaughn Corbett rose far above his less than optimal beginning to become a household name. Known for being a dynamic and unflappable interviewer, no one was more surprised than he when he got tongue-tied over a gorgeous blonde in the middle of a live interview.
Allie Henderson was so focused on her career that she rarely thought about men or dating. That all changed when she came across a silver-tongued devil on the red carpet. The moment his deep blue eyes met hers, something inside her shifted.
Allie was there to support her best friend. Vaughn was just doing his job. Neither of them expected the instant, magnetic attraction that couldn’t be denied.
Would a surprise that neither of them planned on end things before they really began?
Whether it had been her intention or not, Allie had put me further under her spell in the darkened car on the way home. As soon as we’d pulled out of the parking lot, she’d opened the bag of red velvet popcorn and started to eat it. Her sounds of pleasure were enough to drive me wild, but when she started feeding me the popcorn one piece at a time, I had to force myself not to pull over and fuck her on the side of the road. The little minx knew exactly what she was doing, too.
Each time she fed me a piece, she’d trace my lower lip with her thumb, run her fingers down my neck, or tickle my jawline with her fingers. Those little touches were the equivalent of adding an accelerant to something that was already ablaze. All I could think about was her—touching, tasting, fucking, and claiming her in every way I could.
By the time we got home, my cock was so goddamn hard; I could hardly think.
As soon as the car was securely inside the garage, I threw it into park, pressed the button for the garage door to go down, threw off my seat belt, unclicked Allie’s, and hauled her into my arms. I kissed her like the desperate man I was, pouring everything I was feeling into it so that she’d know just how much I needed her. Allie moaned as she shifted in her seat so she could wrap her arms around my shoulders, holding on as I plundered her mouth, the flavor from the red velvet popcorn making her taste sweeter than ever. Only when she set her hand on my cock through my jeans did I tear my mouth away. Breath coming in gusts, I cupped her faced in my hands.
“You’re playing with fire,” I rasped.
She bit her lower lip as she rubbed at me through my jeans. “I’m ready to feel the burn.”
I kissed her once more, quick and hard before I forced myself to stop. Getting out of the car, I raced around to the passenger side and opened her door. As soon as she was out, I pulled her into my arms and kissed her again. We kissed our way from the garage into the mudroom. The door hadn’t closed behind us before I lifted her off the ground.
Taking my lead, she wrapped her legs around my waist and buried her face in my neck. The feel of her lips and her soft breath against my skin made me crazy. I held her waist to keep her steady as I raced through the house and up the stairs to my bedroom.
When I crested the top of the stairs, she lifted her head and kissed me again. I was so wrapped up in her, so desperate to maintain our connection, that I made it to my bedroom by memory alone. I only realized that we’d arrived when we bumped into one of the double doors. I took my right hand from her waist and used it to fumble blindly for the door handle. Eventually, I got lucky and found it.
I didn’t stop kissing her as we stumbled through the doors. I kept right on going as I made a beeline for my bed. Only when we got there did I pull away. We were both breathing like we’d run a marathon as I set her down on the edge of the bed.
I was hoping to get myself under control so that I’d show some finesse, but the chance of that happening went out the window when she gripped the hem of her sweater and pulled it over her head. The sight of the peach-colored lace bra that covered her tits but not enough that I couldn’t see her puckered nipples was like waving a red flag in front of a bull.
A tortured sound emanated from my throat as I stepped between her legs, set my hands on her shoulders, and gently pushed her back. Her green eyes were wild as I got closer, and I missed being able to see them as I leaned in and kissed the spot where her shoulder met her neck.
I loved the sounds she made as I kissed, licked, and nibbled on her neck. Lifting my head, I captured her lips with mine again. She threaded her fingers into my hair as she met my passion with her own. The desperation for her was so sharp that I had to force myself not to strip her bare, unzip my jeans, pull my cock out and fuck her until neither of us had an ounce of energy left. I’d never felt anything like it in my life.
I silently scolded myself to find some fucking control. Being jackhammered in the mattress by a desperate idiot wasn’t even hot in porn.

About Rochelle Paige:
I absolutely adore reading—always have and always will. When I was growing up, my friends used to tease me when I would trail after them, trying to read and walk at the same time. If I have downtime, odds are you will find me reading or writing.
I am the mother of two wonderful sons who have inspired me to chase my dream of being an author. I want them to learn from me that you can live your dream as long as you are willing to work for it.
When I told my mom that my new year’s resolution was to self-publish a book in 2013, she pretty much told me, “About time!”

For the second book of the Love Under The Light series, it’s time for Vaughn to be struck by the lightning… of love.
I liked this instant and power connection and how the main characters were going to the flow, even if it was a bit sudden. They seized the moment, learned about each other and not ignoring their feelings.
Things were moving fast but I guess you knew when you felt something right. Vaughn and Allie were perfect together, so cute and smoking hot.
I really appreciated their bluntness and banter, with a strong hint of sugary sweet that made me smile so much.
However, I enjoyed a lot the beginning until that moment of drama that ruined a bit the story to me. It felt a bit too predictable somehow and out of the blue when you could see how strong they were even if they didn’t know each other for so long. I got it, they needed this little drama to see that they were serious and for the long haul. But still it annoyed me a bit but once I get towards the ending, it was so much better.
Anyway, it won’t stop me to read the next one.
I appreciated reading this Hollywood romance with down to earth characters, sexy and swoony.
