Blog Tour: Hartstring by L.L.Collins

Tanner Hart, the All-American bad boy bass guitarist of Jaded Regret, has one motto— play women’s bodies like he does the strings of his guitar— hard, in tune, and giving it his all until the show is over. The only strings he wants attached to him are the ones he plays on the stage.

He has quite the reputation, even with his own band, and he likes it that way. It keeps the truth of who he really is locked deep inside. But there's so much more to him than anyone really knows…

Now that he’s successful, he can afford to find out what really happened to the only girl who’s ever held his heart. The only thing is…will he really want to know the truth?

When Mackenzie ‘Mac’ Shepard finds herself in a situation she’s been in too many times before, she expects to do what she’s always done— cover it up, accept the apologies, and move on. She knows trying to get out is futile. What she doesn’t expect is for the world famous Tanner Hart to burst into her life like a knight in sexy armor.

When their lives collide and hearts get involved, can Tanner keep his hartstrings from being tangled up in his past, or can he make a new kind of music... with his heart?

Dont do it Tanner. Youll regret it! My subconscious screamed at me, but I was too far gone. I dont want to take care of you because of my past. It may have started off that way. I couldnt bear to leave you in that situation knowing what I knew. But now—” I cleared my throat and moved my hand so it rested on her cheek. My thumb moved back and forth on her smooth skin, and the air changed between us. She knew it, and I knew it.

Its not like that anymore.My voice was hoarse and unlike me. She opened her mouth but then closed it again. The questions hung between us, heavy and foreboding.

Tanner.Her voice was barely audible. The two syllables of my name falling from her lips ignited a hunger in me.

I crashed my lips to hers, and she whimpered. I held her head delicately in my hands as my tongue pushed at her lips. She opened willingly and the second her warm tongue touched mine, I was gone. I tilted my head to deepen the kiss, and she met me match for match. Her hands came up and touched my face, and we both opened our eyes. The kiss intensified, but we kept our gaze locked on each other. Her small moans fueled me. I tried to be gentle because of her injury, but Id never wanted something more in my life.

She tasted like fucking heaven and felt better. Neither of us went any further, but we kissed for so long I never wanted it to end. Mac shifted so she was on my lap and we pulled apart, both of us breathing heavily. I knew I had to stop before I went too far. I was well known for that for a reason. After weeks of dormancy, he was awake and ready.

I wanted her to say something. Anything. I felt like an idiot like she would go running for the hills at my advances. Did I misread her? No. She kissed me back. The whole time.

Mac.I was the one to break the silence. Are you mad at me?

Her eyes twinkled with amusement. Mad? Are you serious?

Ill say Im sorry if you want me to, but Im not sorry. Not at all. I think I wanted to do that for a very long time.

Mac reached for my face and ran her fingers along my cheeks, down my jaw and stopped at my lips. Is this really happening?
