Lowdown and Lush (Lush No. 3) by Selena Laurence ~ Blog Tour and Giveaway

Lowdown and Lush
Lush No. 3
Selena Laurence
Releases November 18, 2014


Mike Owens is the devil. Sexy, snarky, and as lowdown as they come, he's one of the world's greatest guitarists and one of Portland's most notorious bad boys.

Jenny Turner is an angel. A preacher's daughter, she's a good girl with a great voice and a dream to hit it big in country music.

When these two opposites meet, the attraction is undeniable, but something's stopping the bad boy from pursuing what he desires most. Can this angel handle the truth behind her devil? Or will his secrets be too Lowdown and Lush?

Mikey, Mikey, Mikey…I just wasn’t sure what we were going to get out of Mike. I HATED Mike in L1! I hated the way he threw his friends under the bus, and Selena definitely had her work cut out for her writing Mike's character. It was a nice surprise to be able to get into Mike’s head and see his thought process, his reasoning for everything he did. I actually liked Mike in L3 and I just adored Jenny’s character. I loved Mike and Jenny together as a couple, actually probably more than any other Lush couple. "The Feels" in certain parts where great, I just wish I could have felt the emotion…the want…the need…when they were apart more. Overall, a great story! 4 stars.

I wish - for a day that’ll never come, and a dream that’ll never happen, with a woman who’ll never know just how deeply I feel about her.

Mike and Jenny are friends…strictly friends. Mike has been helping Jenny tour, helping her with her music, he believes in her musical abilities and believes she is country music’s next big star. Spending so much time together, Mike and Jenny both realize there is an intense attraction between the two of them…and they fight it tooth and nail…well, mainly Mike does.

When it’s time to record Jenny’s first album, Jenny and Mike are both in Dallas and spending more and more time together. Mike is determined to push Jenny away at every turn, and Jenny can only take so much. When circumstances beyond their control bring them closer than ever, will they give in to their attraction or is a future together just not in the cards for these two polar opposites?

“You’re the only one who could possibly fix me. You don’t know what you’ve done for me these last few months. It’s like you’re this bright light that shines in all the dark corners inside of me. I’m a better person when I’m with you.”

Lowdown and Lush gives us a peek at all of our favorite Lush characters, which I loved. We also get a peek at Mike’s past and it definitely sheds so much light on his character. Selena’s writing is always consistently good and I love the Lush series! If you haven’t read this series you should definitely give it a try, you can start with this freebie
