Take Me Home Tonight - Cover


A rocker gets a taste of unexpected passion in the latest red-hot Rock Star Romance from the award-winning author of I Want You to Want Me.

Calix Bourbon might seem like a free spirit, but that’s all a front. In reality he’s just trying to keep his fractured family together while working as a session musician. When Blue Fire hires him to replace their keyboardist, Calix is determined to make the most of the opportunity—but he can’t help being distracted by the band’s sexy personal chef.

Mimi’s temporary gig is great, but she has her heart set on auditioning for a televised cooking show. There’s just one problem: she only has a week to acquire the skills necessary to survive the competition. Luckily, the band’s new keyboard player can teach her exactly what she needs, in the kitchen and in the bedroom...

My Thoughts:
Okay, the cover totally drew me into wanting to take a chance on Take Me Home Tonight by Erika Kelly. I have seen the other two books in the series at the stories, and they did caught my eye. However, I decided to bypass them. Man that is a mistake I'm going have to rectify soon. I totally enjoyed this book, and it I want to go back read the previous books. Yes, this story can be picked up as a standalone, but since this is a band you might want to go back and read other two books. Majority of Take Me Home Tonight focuses on Calix and Mimi. They are perfect for one another. They both challenge one another to step out of what they have known. 

All right, we have Calix and his family. Yes, we got to throw the family in there cause of a tragedy that happen three years ago, they kind of put their growth on hold. Basically, they are just breathing, sleeping, and eating, and trying to keep his mom content. We have Mimi an outsider sharing her opinions on what they should do. Of Calix doesn't take too kindly about interference of his family. However, his family starts to come alive as they get to know Mimi and even his mother starts to come out her shell. Which is awesome, because she starts living again. It's pretty cool to see how the family dynamics change over the course time. 

We get to know Mimi a little better. She has ambition to work her father, but he makes her jump throw some major hoops. So, she decided to take a chance to go cooking challenge show to prove to her father that she could handle working him. They have some issues with their relationship, and she truly tries to please him. Along the path she discovers who she truly is, granted she knew who she was, but she realized her dream. 

Overall, I truly enjoyed Take Me Home Tonight. It's definitely breath taking and amazing. Love how Calix and Mimi were able to help one another. I liked how we got to watch the change of the Bourbon family change from sleep walking to living again. It wasn't an easy feat, but they were able to do it with the help of Mimi. Now I need to go play catch up with the rest of the series.

Calix wasn’t sure why he was boarding the elevator in her steel and glass high rise, but he’d come this far. He might as well get her to her apartment.

The moment the doors closed, she leaned against the wall, and a slow bloom of satisfaction spread across her pretty features. “I did it,” she said quietly. “I freaking did it.”

Somehow standing so close to her in this dimly lit box made him forget all his reasons to stay away from her. He wanted her. Plain and simple. There was something irresistible about this girl. He caught her hand in his, brought it to his mouth, and kissed her open palm. “You did. You were fantastic.”

“You helped me.”

“Don’t think they’ll be using offal.”

“Not that.” She touched his arm, like she needed his attention. “I meant by being there. In the audience. Every time I started to freak out I looked at you, and your bad-ass energy picked me up. Every single time. I needed that.” She touched his arm. “You made me feel like I could do it.”

“You could. You did.”

She didn’t look tired anymore. Her features softened, her lips parted. A crazy energy spun through him, throwing out images—those sultry eyes looking up at him, her mouth wrapped around his cock. He could picture it so vividly, his fingers touching her lips as she sucked him deep, and an explosion of erotic sensation detonated in his chest.
