Blog Tour: Loving Dallas by Caisey Quinn

~ Synopsis ~

In the second novel in bestselling author Caisey Quinn’s Neon Dreams series, a country rock band and its members embark on the rocky road to fame and find love along the way.

Dallas Lark is so close to achieving his dream of making it big in country music that he can taste it. Arriving in Nashville after signing with sexy, successful manager Mandy Lantram, his life goes from tragedy and turmoil to one lucky break after another—except it isn’t really luck because Dallas has sacrificed everything for his career, leaving behind his band, sister, best friend, and high school sweetheart, Robyn, in the pursuit of fame.

Robyn Breeland is a successful marketing coordinator and promotions specialist for a thriving liquor distributor out of Texas. She loves every aspect of her job: coming up with new ideas, traveling, hosting promotional parties and exclusive events—until it brings her face-to-face with the man who broke her heart, prompting her to erect a steel cage around it.

When their paths collide and they’re forced to work together, Dallas and Robyn realize that the old spark they thought they’d extinguished might still be a burning

5 Stars 

As usual, Caisey Quinn is amazing! This story is a continuation of Leaving Amarillo. At first, I was confused about why the story didn't continue with Gavin and Dixie, but once I started reading I understood it all.

Dallas is finally living his dream on the road, or is he? He lost his love Robyn back when they were teenagers. Dallas is realizing that he wants that love back. He has a chance run-in with Robyn, who is the promotions manager for the tour Dallas landed.

Robyn has secrets and is completely floored when she finds out Dallas Walker is really her Dallas Lark. She knows she still has feelings for him, however, if they are ever to move on from the past she must tell him why she let him go all those years ago.

This story is a beautiful second chance. I am very excited to read what Caisey has in store in her next book!

 ~ Excerpt ~

The universe must hate me. No, it must downright fucking despise me.
Of all the concerts in all the world, she has to be at mine. In fucking Denver of all places. Literally the last place in the universe I would expect to see her.
My mind can’t stop replaying our exchange. Or how lovingly that dress clung to her mouthwatering curves. Seeing her conjured up memories I keep firmly locked in the box of Robyn that I never open. Ever.
Seeing her unexpectedly reminded me of the first time I ever laid eyes on her and practically transported me back in time.
“God, I love this song,” she’d announced the night we met. “Come dance with me.”
She’d grabbed my hand with surprising strength for a petite redhead who couldn’t have weighed a hundred pounds soaking wet. She had the kind of raspy voice that instantly made you think of dirty talk. Or maybe that was just me. I had just turned sixteen and was basically a hard-on with a pulse.

Gavin had raised his eyebrows and smirked as she dragged me closer to the truck blaring the music. She shook her sexy ass and sang at the top of her lungs, off key, but proudly off key. I couldn’t take my eyes or my hands off her. For several years.

5 Stars 

I loved this book.  I didn't want to put it down.  I had to know what was going to happen.  This book had my hooked from page one.  I was drawn to Jax in Fragile Lies and I couldn't wait for him to find his HEA.  It was a battle getting there and at times I wanted to jump in there and smack some sense into him and  others I wanted to be there to comfort him and tell him that everything would be alright.

Cassie is struggling to work, be a single mom and make sure that her son Ben has everything he needs.  She doesn't have time to date.  Though Jax is trying to change that.  He wants to get to know her.  She's hesitant because she doesn't have a lot of time and she doesn't want to spend any more time away from Ben, but she can't introduce Jax and Ben yet.  Will she let Jax in?  Will Ben and Jax be a good fit?

Jax is what everyone thinks a twenty year old college kid should be like.  He goes to school, hangs out, drinks and has a great time.  He is having issues now that his best friend Will and his sister Ryanne are living together.  He found himself out of a roommate and living with his mom.  He doesn't mind living with his mom because it gives him time to get to know her more.  He doesn't like that he feels like he lost his best friend though.  He knows the minute he sees Cassie that he wants to get to know her.  Can he fit her into his life?  Will he be okay with her having a son?

This book is amazing.  It deals with real life issues.  Ones that I'm sure most of us have had to deal with.  Not all of us get the same results as this book.  I cannot wait to read Roxy's story.  I know there is a story in Roxy's past that is going to break our hearts, but I can't wait to see who is there to help her pick up all the pieces of her heart and make it whole.

~ Excerpt ~

“Jax,” I breathed. I reached behind me, grasping for the door handle to my backseat. When it opened, I pulled his face away from my chest. His lips were red from thoroughly kissing me. His chest was heaving and his eyes were glazed. I smiled and tugged on his hand. I climbed inside my car, lying back on the seat. He crawled on top of me and shut the door behind him. Without pause, he helped me out of my light jacket and tossed it in the front. He pulled my shirt over my head and went back to attacking my breasts. I wrapped my arms around him and ran them over his back. He had never been skin and bones, but now he had more definition. He wasn’t too bulky, there was just enough there that my arousal kicked up another five notches. I pulled on his shirt, whipping it over his head. He smirked at me, taking my bra off. “Cassie,” he said, his voice reverent and so full of want that it almost hurt to hear it. “Fuck. I never thought I’d be able to touch you, kiss you again. Now that I started, I’m not sure I can ever stop.” “Don’t stop. Don’t ever stop.” He leaned down and pulled a nipple into his mouth. I cried out. His hand slid down my abdomen, my muscles twitching as he moved over them. He popped the button of my jeans and slid down the zipper before slipping his hand inside. He traced his finger over my panties. He groaned. “Fuck, Cassie.” His whole body went still and stiff, his head buried in my neck. “I think I’m going to die. Right here, right now. If I wake up tomorrow and this was a dream, I don’t think I can go on with life.” “It’s not a dream, Jax. I’m here, with you.” He regarded me and the pain in his eyes caused my heart to squeeze painfully. It seemed as though he was about to say something, but instead, he devoured my lips and slipped a finger inside me. I arched my back, ripping my lips away from his. The sensation, the feeling, it was so much. Too much. “God, you feel so good.” He buried his face in my neck again and kissed, licked, nibbled it. My mouth was wide open, as were my eyes, as he moved his fingers inside me magically. I couldn’t think about anything but the feel of his fingers and the way he was playing my body like a guitar. He still knew exactly how to touch me in such a way that, before long, my hips were bucking against his and I screamed out his name. He slipped his hand out of my jeans, moving up to brush my hair out of my face. He studied my face as though he’d never see it again. My mind was still coming back down to Earth as he helped me put my bra and shirt back on. Before I knew it, he was sitting next to me, pulling his shirt on. He kissed my lips, long and passionate and so amazingly. I wanted his hands on me again, even though they’d been gone only been a few minutes. “I don’t want to leave you, Cassie, but if I don’t leave now, we’re never leaving this parking lot,” he said, then pressed a kiss to my forehead. I wrapped my arms around his neck, kissing him. I never wanted this feeling to end.
