Blog Tour Review & Giveaway for I REMEMBER YOU by Scarlett Metal






I Remember You
*I was generously given an ARC of this novella in exchange for an honest review
I Remember You

Blurb:

Lance never got over his teenage love despite years of trying to forget her with alcohol, music, and other women.  

Samantha dated lots of different guys after Lance, guys most girls would love to have even a chance with.  No one can make her happy though; she compares them all to Lance.  

Fate brings them together when Lance is in town for some family business.  They end up spending a passionate night together but can they be more?  Can they finally find their happily ever after?





Review:

Star Rating: 4 out of 5

 Heat Rating: HOT 


Lance and Samantha were high school sweethearts.  They had been together all through high school and were finally in a good place when BOOM! Life throws a curve ball that knocks Lance and Samantha apart.  What happens when two people that love each other can't be together?  This is the question this novella asks and answers.

I Remember You by Scarlett Metal is a novella that has the feel of a full length novel.  You get to know Samantha and Lance in the past and then again in the present.  Scarlett takes two people that were torn apart and throws them back to together ten years later, as a reader I LOVE this story line (old lovers coming back together by happenstance and re-connecting).  Once Samantha and Lance meet up again after so many years apart they can't resist the draw and the heat gets turned WAY up!  

This novella has a little bit of everything: a rock star, the good girl, drama, anguish, hot sex and a love that never stops.  Scarlett Metal did a great job getting the reader hooked right at the beginning and keeping the pace so that you end up settling down until the story ends and you are left with a sigh in your heart and a smile on your face.  (or at least that is what happened to me).  I definitely think I REMEMBER YOU by Scarlett Metal needs to find a home in your e-reader, it is a quick, sweet and sexy read that is worth the price of admission!





Excerpt:


Oh my god, she was here! This had not been part of her plan at all when she bought that ticket, but she had to admit she was thrilled. Samantha watched Lance walk to the front desk of the hotel. God his ass looked amazing in those leather pants. 

She thought back to earlier, watching him during his show, especially during their song. She’d always. Her nipples tightened with excitement as she imagined those fingers moving over her body like they did over his guitar. 

She couldn’t help but laugh when Lance started walking back to her, holding up his room key and a naughty smile. He wrapped his arms around her waist and pulled her against him. His embrace felt amazing now as it did back when they were kids.

“Let’s go upstairs,” he murmured into her hair. 

She buried her face into his chest for a minute. She nodded against him, not trusting herself to speak and pulled from his embrace. She took his hand without a word and led him to the elevator.

She was going to let this happen tonight, but would this be it? Were they still too different? Could they even make a relationship work? Her eyes stung as she fought back tears. She wanted to be with him tonight, to feel his lips on hers and his hands on her body. In a couple of days he would go back on the road and she worried they’d go their separate ways again. He was a rock star anyway; there was no way he would want to be with someone as plain and simple as her. Right?

She pressed the button to the elevator and gave him a shy smile. As much as she wanted him, she was so nervous. She opened her mouth to say something when the ding of the elevator stopped her.

“About damn time,” he muttered, pulling her into the elevator. When the doors closed behind them, he pressed his hips into her, pinning her between him and the elevator wall, his eyes dark with desire as he looked down at her. Her heart skipped a beat. He looked like a lion that was about to attack its prey. 

She gasped, feeling his erection along her thigh. “Oh my god, Lance,” she murmured.

He bent forward, letting his lips blaze a trail from her ear, moving down her neck. He looked up at her and smiled when she let out a whimper. “Still have that spot, huh?” He asked.

No fair he knew her weak spot. “Mmhmm...Lance.” Her hands moved over the front of his t-shirt, pulling it from the waistband of his pants.

His lips continued their assault on her neck. “Yes, baby?” He murmured into her skin.
“I need you,” she whispered, her hands sliding up the inside of his shirt, running her hands over his smooth chest.

“Fuck, Sam, I need you too,” he muttered against her ear. “You keep touching me like that and we won’t even make it to the room.”
