There's something totally inconvenient about falling for your best friend's brother. Especially when he's turned into a pompous, arrogant, albeit annoyingly sexy a-hole that you'd like to punch or kiss to death at any given moment.

After a stupid favor that blurred the lines from friends to lovers the summer she turned eighteen, Jazz Frazer accidentally lost her heart to Joey Butler. For three years they’ve pretended there’s nothing between them anymore. Jazz is finally ready to move on with the rest of her life. She's determined that experiences and relationships will be fun, casual and easy. After all, she learned the hard way that men just don’t stick around anyway. But when her best friend gets herself into a relationship with a celebrity, Jazz has to do the one thing she never thought she'd do, call Joey and ask for help.

Repeatedly thrown together, Jazz tries everything she can to protect her heart and not fall back in love with Joey. But when Joey finally admits that Jazz is the one he's always wanted, all bets are off.

This is a full length, standalone contemporary, friends to lovers and second chance romance. It is a spin off from the Eversea series and may therefore contain minor spoilers. This book is recommended for ages 17+ due to strong language and sexual situations.







 We all remember Jazz & Joey from the #Eversea books!
Jazz has been Keri Ann's best friend since they were little kids and also since about back then she's been on and off crushing on Keri Ann's brother Joey. But mostly he was getting on her nerves!
Other than an unfortunate (slightly alcoholic) encounter when Jazz turned 18, there never was anything between them. Even though back then, she might've, kinda, or rather, she did fall in love with him...still is.
But he doesn't want her - he's made that abundantly clear back then.

"This was a mistake.
I don't want or need a girlfriend right now. I have work, college, plans, and decisions."


But now he's back home, to check on his sister, who is in the middle of either reuniting with Jack Eversea, or of saying good-bye to him forever....

But before we can find out how their story will end, we go back in time to the summer when Jazz turned 18 and see what and how things happened with Jazz & Joey.

It was the end of high school, and the beginning of the rest of our lives.
Then it was summer.
I lost a lot of things that summer.
That summer changed me forever.


There will be lots of sadness and grief and whatnot to be overcome, before Joey & Jazz can even think of having their HEA!!!!

What will happen to Jazz & Joey?
Will there be a HEA????



I'm not spoiling anything!!! ☺







I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!!

I'm such a huge fan of the #Eversea books, and I'm soooo happy that Natasha has this new Butler Cove story for us now!

It was just adorable!
Poor Jazz, loving and hating Joey Butler with all her heart ever since she was 11 years old.
And Joey...we don't really know what's going on in his mind or heart.
He's all about his studying and wanting to be a good doctor....
We just want them to grow up and be together forever...but it'll take them a while to get there....

There are so many adorable and funny and sexy and sad and frustrating moments in this story.
I cried a lot!!



Especially those moments three years ago, and all those things that happened in Jazz's life....That poor girl!

I loved every word of this story!!!!

ALL THAT JAZZ was such a beautiful & adorable Romance. Fun, sexy & heartbreaking - just perfect!! ♥





ARC received for an honest review
It seems like forever since I read the #Eversea series, and getting back  to Butler Cover felt like sliding on a comfy pair of slippers.  It felt like I was heading home again.
You remember Jazz and Joey from the series - Keri Ann's best friend and her brother?

Well now we get the full story of what happened between them - and boy, what a story.

Jazz has a love/hate relationship with Joey - and it is a fine line between the two.  I can feel her pain through the pages, and my heart broke for her as events occurred.

I just wanted to slap some sense into Joey most the time, tell him to get his act together and do what he needs to do to get Jazz.

All That Jazz ( I feel like I should be using spirit fingers as I type this review!!) is told in the past and the present, and I loved seeing the relationships in the book from grass roots today.

And the parts told in the present follow the time line of Keri Ann and Jack's story, and I loved seeing their story through their friends eyes.

All That Jazz is a sweet, adorable read, with a dose of sexy and heartache thrown in for good measure.

I thoroughly enjoyed Jazz and Joey's story and would love more in the future.

The Summer I turned 18
Joey shook his head. “This is a really fucking bad idea,” he muttered before leaning down and taking my mouth with his.
My heart raced.
He moved in front of me. His hand slid into my hair behind my head and his lower body connected with mine, pressing me against the railing.
Oh, God.
My arms skated up his biceps to his hard shoulders until they grasped at his neck.
I was terrified he’d suddenly raise his head and stop kissing me. The feel of him against me, against my body, the heat of his mouth, the skin of his neck under my fingers was like what I imagined a hit of ecstasy felt like. It was sudden and overwhelming and euphoric. I let out a low moan of need, my mouth opening under his. God, yes.
His hands tightened on me. He lifted his mouth fractionally as if the sound shocked him. His eyes were dark, his brow furrowed. We each took a breath against each other’s mouths.
I licked my bottom lip. Please let him not stop, I want more. I leaned up and nipped at his mouth.
He let out a shallow breath that caught. “A really, really bad idea,” he murmured before his mouth was on mine again. His tongue licked into me. His hands couldn’t seem to find where to hold me as they moved from my hair, to my back, to my face. He held my face, angling my mouth to suit him. Jesus. My body strained against his without me even meaning to. I felt his erection thick and heavy between us. Holy shit. Yes. I pressed closer. Damn, he tasted good. I kissed him back with everything I had like I could imprint the taste and feel of him on me forever.
His mouth pulled from mine, his wet lips and hot breath skating to my ear and down my neck. I held his head, my fingers slipping into his silky hair.
“But really, really … really good,” I whispered, gasping as his teeth and tongue worked down my neck. The sound of his ragged breathing almost did me in as much as the feel of it against my skin.
“Fuck,” he murmured, his tone tortured as if he had no will against what he was doing.
An aching and relentless need had taken root low in my belly. The urge to open my legs and wrap them around him, seeking relief was almost becoming tunnel-like. I could barely think. How had a simple kiss moved from hot to … this … in less than two minutes? This was no kiss for anyone’s benefit. This was no favor. This was pure, raw, unadulterated want. This was what I wanted sex to feel like. This was not even close to how it felt when Chase kissed me. Chase was definitely the wrong choice. Joey. I wanted this with Joey. I wanted him to be my first. The sudden image of him naked on me, my legs wrapped around him as he kissed me like this, went off like a lust-bomb in my stomach and I whimpered—a strange tortured sound.
Fisting my hands in his hair, I pulled his face back to mine. His hips rocked against me, and his tongue sank into my mouth. We kissed, and we kissed. It was like we couldn’t stop. He became my air, and I thought I’d rather die kissing him than ever breathe again.
