Review: Can't Shake You by Molly McLain

Title: Can't Shake You

Author: Molly McLain


Lovers to friends to lovers…could it get any more complicated?

One thing Carissa Brandt knows: spontaneity always get her in trouble. Still, she’s gone and jumped head first into an impulsive summer renovation project with her fingers crossed. When her contractor turns out to be a cheat, it seems her only lifeline is the proffered hand of Josh Hudson—the sexy Marine who left her aching for more than their single night together three years ago.

Josh has two hard and fast rules: never mix business with pleasure and don’t look twice at women his friends have dated, much less loved. It makes life in a small town simple—or it would, if he wasn’t harboring a secret with the potential to destroy his good name and the reputation of a woman he can’t get out of his head.

When Carissa finds herself in a bind, Josh’s integrity—both personal and professional—won’t let her fail. Will working together finally extinguish the attraction lingering between them? Or will the smoldering embers of their passionate rendezvous ignite all over again and set aflame the friendships they cherish the most?

Warning: This book contains a hella-sexy, inked up hero, a spunky heroine who isn’t afraid to speak her mind, smokin’ hot sex, and enough swearing to make your momma blush. For readers 18+.


5 out of 5 stars

After hearing some good things about Molly McLain's books from some of my most trusted book friends, I decided to read it and that was one of the best decisions I've ever made in my life. I say this a lot but this book was truly perfect for me and had everything that I loved in a contemporary romance novel.

The lovers to friends to lovers storyline really worked. It kept me interested from start to finish and the side mystery about who was targeting Josh and vandalizing his construction sites was also really intriguing. But the best part about this book were the characters. The residents of River Bend really wormed their way into my heart. I really loved Josh and Carissa as well as all of their friends. Hell, the author even made me love Carissa's ex-boyfriend, Reed, which was truly impressive. Lol.

Anywho, the romance in this book was adorable and really warmed my heart. Granted, I did get annoyed by the decision on their part to keep their relationship a secret because honestly they are adults and things could have been solved so easily if they had just talked it over with their friends but that little annoyance didn't prevent me from thoroughly enjoying their story.

Overall, this book was a really great romance and has made me a instant diehard fan of Molly McLain.
