All you have to do is:

5) Share it! And shout it out it using #Reading and Things.

This week my book boyfriend is Cole Morgan from Marquita Valentine's Boys of the South Series:  Live For You(Book #1) and Only For You (Book #2).  He's a heartbreaker, sometimes he can be a jerk, but he's really hot, sexy, and can be romantic when he wants to be.  

Book Description:
On the surface, twenty-two year old Cole Morgan is exactly what any girl would be proud to take home to meet her parents: He’s charming, intensely handsome and goal-oriented...Only he has some secrets of his own, which include provoking bar fights and a former drug-addict of a mother slowly wasting away in a medical facility. 

At barely twenty, Violet Lynn is Country Music's hottest star, until one night of partying gets out of control. Violet ends up in jail and on TMZ. Suddenly, she’s the girl least likely to be invited anywhere. Sick of the drama and keeping secrets, she runs away from the prying eyes of the paparazzi to her grandmother’s home in Forrestville, North Carolina.

A chance meeting knocks Cole off his feet, but he doesn’t recognize Violet for who she is. In fact no one does and Violet plans to keep it that way. 

Circumstances, however annoying, keep throwing Violet and Cole together. Unable to stop themselves they give into the inevitable.

But when Nashville is ready to forgive and forget, Violet is forced to choose between Cole and claiming her spot as the new and improved Princess of Country Music.

Will Violet and Cole have the courage to live for their dreams...Or their hearts?

Quotes from Live for You (Boys of the South #1)
“My phone vibrates and I glance at it.
"Good night  3."  That little heart emoticon gives me the goofiest swell of emotion in history. Hell, I think I could give Wyatt a run for his money. He’s the king of goof.
Night. I add a heart because it seems like the appropriate thing to do. Guess that makes me the king of goof’s bitch? Or is that love’s bitch?
Either way, this girl owns me.” 

"Let me change, first, since this towel offends your delicate sensibilities.  Then I'll let you take the cake holder back home with you."  Before I can turn him down again, he walks away, pauses, and shoots me a wicked grin over his shoulder.  That grin does things to parts of me that have no business coming to life . Heat skims by body.  
"I sure hate offending you."  He drops the towel exposing his very fine butt.  There are dimples on each side and at the base of his back.  "Close your mouth, darlin."  Muscle ripple and flow as he strides into his bedroom.  I snap my jaw shut.

Book Description:
Loose ends left loose for too long tend to strangle.
Cole and Violet knew it wouldn’t be easy. They knew their relationship would take work. But when the press finds out about Violet Lynn’s newest boyfriend, they start digging.  And when his past comes to light, exposing all of his family’s secrets, their relationship begins to fray.

Country Music’s Golden Boy, Jaxon Hunter, has it all, except the girl that got away. What she saw, she really didn’t. What she thought happened, he allowed her to believe for reasons so insane that no one would ever have believed him if he had confessed. But now that everything’s out in the open, he’s going to do his damndest to convince her that he’s the only one for her.

Now Violet must choose between Jaxon— her first love and the guy she thought had cheated on her—and Cole—the guy who helped her heal and love again.
 Or will one of them make the decision for her?

Quotes from Only for You 
(Boys of the South #2):
"For what it's worth, you're everything to me, Cole Morgan. Everything."....Violet Rae
"That's worth a hell of a lot, baby.".....Cole

...I fix my gaze on her sweet face, on the look in her eyes.  Love lives there, for me.  Only for me.
                                                                                                          ....Cole Morgan
