Boys of Bishop, book #3
We are very happy to bring to you the latest release by the talented Molly O' Keefe "Between The Sheets" the third book in her Boys of Bishop series. I simply loved this story and gave it 5 cups (review here) and the characters were simply amazing. To celebrate the release of Between The Sheets we asked Ms. O' Keefe for her playlist, the songs that reflect what her characters are all about and she kindly provided it for us today.
Play List for BETWEEN THE SHEETS
This is the playlist for Ty, my hero in BETWEEN THE SHEETS. Ty's got a lot on his plate dealing with his son and a new life, but he is at heart - utterly a good guy. And his love affair with Shelby baffles him in so many ways, but when he falls, he falls hard. And this play list is sort of the progression of his feelings.
After they get over their intial animosity towards each other, he's impossibly intrigued by her, but she does not give him much to go on.
Arctic Monkeys - Do I Wanna Know?
Have you got colour in your cheeks?
Do you ever get that fear that you can't shift
The type that sticks around like something in your teeth?
Are there some aces up your sleeve?
Have you no idea that you're in deep?
I dreamt about you nearly every night this week
How many secrets can you keep?
'Cause there's this tune I found that makes me think of you somehow and I play it on repeat
Until I fall asleep
Spilling drinks on my settee
(Do I wanna know)
If this feeling flows both ways?
(Sad to see you go)
Was sort of hoping that you'd stay
(Baby we both know)
That the nights were mainly made for saying things that you can't say tomorrow day
As Ty slowly starts to understand what Shelby's all about, his better sense tells him to run, but still he stands there, waiting for her. Because he understands pain better than most.
The Lumineers - Stubborn Love
It's better to feel pain, than nothing at all
The opposite of love's indifference
So pay attention now, I'm standing on your porch screaming out
And I won't leave until you come downstairs
And I don't blame you dear for running like you did all these years
I would do the same, you'd best believe
And the highway signs say we're close but I don't read those things anymore
I never trusted my own eyes
When Ty decides, he's in. He's so in. And he believes that he can love her enough for the both of them. That she will be able to trust him, to love him, to see him.
One Republic - Love Runs Out
I'll be your light, your match, your burning sun,
I'll be the bright, in black that's makin' you run.
And we'll feel alright, and we'll feel alright,
'Cause we'll work it out, yes, we'll work it out.
And we'll start a fire, and we'll shut it down,
'Til the love runs out, 'til the love runs out.
'Til the love runs out.
In the big terrible black moment of the book Ty realizes that he can't love her enough for both of them. She will not let him. Shelby's been so wounded, it's possible she may never be able to love and trust another person and he is forced to let her go.
Great Big World - Say Something
Say something, I'm giving up on you
I'm sorry that I couldn't get to you
Anywhere I would've followed you
Say something, I'm giving up on you
Perfect for readers of Susan Mallery and Rachel Gibson, Between the Sheets is Molly O’Keefe’s final book in the Boys of Bishop trilogy, featuring a sizzling romance between a sexy motorcycle bad boy and the girl next door who can’t resist him.
After years of running, Wyatt Svenson has now parked himself in Bishop, Arkansas, trying to do the right thing and parent a son he didn’t even know he had until recently. Over six feet tall and packed with muscles and power, Ty likes to get his hands dirty, fixing his motorcycle at night and keeping his mind away from the mistakes he’s made. Then his pretty neighbor shows up on his driveway, doesn’t bother to introduce herself, and complains about the noise. First impression? She should loosen up. Funny that she turns out to be his son’s elementary school art teacher—and the only one willing to help his troubled boy. Ty needs her. In more ways than one.
Though Shelby Monroe is safe in her structured life, she is drawn to Ty’s bad-boy edge and rugged sexuality. What if she just lets it all go: her worries about her mother, her fear of heartbreak, and her tight self control? What if she grabs Ty and takes a ride on the wild side? “What if” becomes reality—intense, exhilarating . . . and addictive. But Ty wants more than a secret affair. He wants it all with Shelby. But will she take a chance and open her heart? Ty is determined to convince Shelby to take the biggest risk of her life: on him.
