NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY RT BOOK REVIEWS
Sure to thrill readers of Susan Mallery and Rachel Gibson, Molly O’Keefe’s sizzling series cranks up the tension as a bad boy rides into town on his motorcycle—and teaches the girl next door to lose control when it comes to desire.
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.

O'Keefe brings together a good girl and a bad boy in the phenomenal third installment (after Never Been Kissed) of the Boys of Bishop series, set in tiny Bishop, Ark. Even after Shelby's ex-lover proclaims on national television that she's a wildcat in bed, no one believes that the preacher's daughter and upstanding citizen could have a secret dirty side. And although people who look at Ty tend to see his tough-guy exterior, he's hardworking, generous, and trying his best to build a life for the 11-year-old son he only just met. Ty and Shelby start out with a clash, but as they take turns extending helping hands, their relationship moves from simple lust to an attachment much more intense and unexpected. The story is deep, complex, and rich, with emotional tones of hope, loss, regret, pain, and so many flavors of love. Shelby and Ty's romance is dark, erotic, and gloriously full of joy, a total must-read for any romance fan who likes their sex scenes raunchy and their heartstrings plucked.

Review: Boys of Bishop #3: Between The Sheets
Between the Sheets by Molly O'Keefe is the third book in her Boys of Bishop series. This book focuses on Shelby Monroe, the art teacher with the disastrous and embarrassing moment of fame thanks to a jerk named Dean outing their sexual activities on morning daytime TV. Coming from a small town like Bishop and the fact that she is an art teacher, this was devastating for Shelby.
Shelby has a hot new neighbor and a new student in class that she's concerned about. Turns out the inconsiderate neighbor who keeps her up at night loudly working in his garage is the father of the new student.
Despite her best efforts she can't keep Ty out of her heart for long but will she ever actually let him in completely.
Ty is looking for a fresh start and a clean slate for him and his son Casey. He's only known about Casey for the past 5 months and wants to be a good dad but lacking a role model himself worries constantly he's screwing it up. When he meets Shelby it is not love at first sight by any means but she certainly captures his attention even while berating him for his inconsiderate loudness at night in his garage.
When Shelby goes out on a limb to help Casey, that's when Ty realizes he may have been to rash to judge her and very quickly becomes captivated by the opinionated neighbor.
The journey these three take is deep, emotional, and powerful. Another fantastic book from this author with flawed people making the effort to be better. LOVED IT!
