Daphnie's 5 Star Review


Everything from N.B. Baker had everything a fantastic book needs. Secrets, betrayal, hot romance, I love when I read a book and I am unable to guess the secret.
Wow this book was fantastic, I loved how I was not able to figure out the secret. I hate to read a book and figure out the big secret before it comes out. But N.B. Baker was able to keep you on your toes trying to figure it out.

Ella has had a hand thrown at her. Her only family was her grandparents who both passed away within a year of each other. Ella starts new in a new state with her two besties and is sweep of her feet by a new love. When we do the same thing each day sometimes we may miss what really going on around you. When you think everything in life is perfect sometime we miss the little things in front of us. . When you think your walking into a romantic night for yourself is really your man with another woman.

 Things happen for a reason and Ella got a second chance when see  bumps into Chance. I loved the characters in this story after Ella dealt with her douche of an ex she has Chance, who I just love. Chance and Ella's chemistry started out pretty quickly, but the SEX was smoking HOT.

The suspense in this story hand me sitting on the edge of my seat. I never new what twist was coming and I loved that about this book. This is one story you don't want to miss. Who wouldn't  love a good love story, HOT sex, a good laugh and a bit of a murder mystery.


N.B. Baker is Iowa born, 12 years ago she moved to Wyoming where she resides with her husband, children, their four legged children Kiera and Jade. She loves to write in the spare time she has, after working 40 hours in the financial world, playing wife, and mommy, (aka chef, doctor, house keeper, taxi driver, zoo keeper, homing device, and much more.)
N.B. Baker has always believed in the unbreakable bond between best friends; love at first sight and happily ever after.              
       “Everything” is N.B. Baker’s debut novel.


Excerpt 1

“Ella,” the soft whisper caresses my ear. I can feel the heat from his breath

float across my skin. I feel Hunter’s hard length press into my backside. I tilt my

head back so that he has better access to my neck. He plants soft kisses along the

skin just below my ear, down my neck, and across my collarbone. His hand slides

up under my shirt and cups my breast. He rolls my taught nipples between his

fingers and pulls gently. A soft moan escapes my lips, and I reach behind me and

palm his hard-on through his jeans. I can feel heat pulsing through my body as

desire starts to build between my legs. I twist around, pull his face down to mine,

and push my tongue into his mouth. I lift my hands over my head as Hunter pulls

my shirt off and throws it to the ground. I reach up and run my hands across his

muscular shoulders, over his chest, and down to grasp the button of his jeans.

He walks me backward and pushes me onto the feather-like softness of our

bed. Slowly, he pulls my pants off and slides me gently to the center of the bed.

He grabs my legs and wraps them over his shoulders. He lowers his head right

down into my pulsing heat, and the anticipation builds in my core.

He lifts his head; his dark-green eyes meet mine, and he says, “Your parents

never wanted you, and neither do I.”



 Excerpt 2

He looks deep into my eyes as I run my hands back up

his chest and push his shirt and jacket off his shoulders onto the floor. Heat

rushes through me as my eyes drink in every inch of him. Chance kisses my

neck and starts working his way across my collarbone down to where the dress

meets my shoulder. Moving it gently so that it falls down my arm, he kisses

his way to my other shoulder where he does the same thing, causing the dress

to pool around my feet. I’m standing in nothing but the garter belt, hose, and

stilettos. He runs his eyes across my body, sending yet another wave of heat

through me.

In a low, sexy-as-hell voice, Chance says, “Leave them on, baby. I want to

take them off of you.”

He turns around and heads into the bedroom. Just as quickly as he left, he’s

back out, carrying a blanket and pillows. He takes large strides to where I stand

and swoops me up into his arms. I wrap my legs around him, and he carries me

out onto the balcony. Chance throws the blanket and pillow to the ground and

lays me gently on top of them. Sitting on his knees between my legs, he leans

down over me, running his hand from my neck down to my hips, watching his

hand as it glides down my body. I lean my body into his touch.

I need to feel him consuming me completely. “Chance, please…”

He puts each of my legs over his shoulders and then lowers his face to my

core. One soft movement of his tongue against my wet flesh and I fall over the

edge. I reach down, grab a handful of his hair, and pull him up to me. “Chance,

I need you inside of me, please!”

 Excerpt 3

As I pull out of the parking lot, the music disappears and is replaced by something

that sounds like a crumpling soda can. I feel my body jerk into the window,

and what feels like a million needles hit my bare skin. A sharp pain runs the entire

length of the left side of my body. I feel warm liquid running down my face,

and every time I try to open my eyes, they burn like someone is stabbing them

with red-hot pokers. I try to move to relieve some of the pain, but I can’t; my

body is pinned down. I start to scream for someone to help me, but everything

goes dark before a single sound can leave me.




The band has started to play a slow song. Chance grabs my hand and leads me

out onto the dance floor. He stops and turns around. He takes my hands,

lifting them over my head as he runs his hand down my arms. I start swaying my

hips slowly to the music, brushing against him. I hear him let out a low growl.

He tucks his head into my neck and lets his hands continue to travel down my

sides and over my hips to the hem of my dress. There are those hundreds of hummingbirds

flying around in my stomach. I run my hands across his chest and

then lower my body to the beat of the music. My hands keep wandering down

his muscular legs and then back up until they are around his neck again. Chance

has his arm folded around my back and tugs my leg up to his hip.

I am so absorbed in him that I have forgotten that we’re in public surrounded

by a ton of people. The music stops, and there is a loud explosion of applause and

whistles. I’m beyond shocked when I realize that it’s not for the band but for the

show that Chance and I just put on.

Justin and Sarah are walking off the dance floor beside us. Justin looks down

at me with a big-brother expression on his face. “You’re lucky I don’t ground you

for that!” I can feel my face turn bright red, and all I can do is smack him.
