Brought up in a traditional family Carrie Stevens fights the bounds of propriety and flaunts her deviance with no regard to personal consequences. With one exception…her big brother’s wishes where his band is concerned. The sparks that fly when she’s around the one taboo she’d love to date are only a tempting siren’s song, until she sees there’s more to Shea than she’d originally thought. The sexy drummer might just make her lose her heart, if he can put her past to rest.

Shea McNamara has been in love with Carrie Stevens for years. Running in the same circle as her isn't easy. Her choice in men irks him but she's in his blood as much as the drums he loves to beat. All he has to do is convince her there’s more to life than the fast lane. With her flirty attitude he refuses to allow her to call the shots.


This story gives the reader a great view as to what the rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle for men might be like.  Carrie and Shea are the main characters with a wonderful supporting cast.  Carrie is a quirky girl that acts out a lot for attention and to stand apart from her family and twin sister.  Shea on the other hand has found his path and knows what he wants in life.  The two share sparks and fire, igniting each other’s passion.

Shut Up and Kiss Me is an erotic story that is light, humorous, and sexy.  Any man that can cook is definitely sexy and Shea fits the bill.  Carrie and Shea have many humorous moments that will leave the reader smiling.  There is a great balance between these two characters.

The supporting cast of siblings, parents, and friends all bring something unique to the story and help it feel realistic.  There are so many possibilities that could follow from the set up at the end of the book that I will definitely be looking for Ms. Levey’s next instalment of this series.
