So excited to be on Heidi McLaughlin’s FINDING MY FOREVER Blog Tour. Check out my review for what I consider to be the best in the series so far!!! And, as a special treat– Jimmy of 4225 West Stopped by. OMG!!!
Everywhere I look, my friends are settling down – marriage, children, white picket fences; but not me. Marriage isn’t in the cards for me. I’m a ladies man.
A rock star.
I was born and raised in the industry.
I love everything about my life, especially the attention from the women that my status brings me.
Women find me. I don’t chase. I know what they want and they know I’ll deliver.
But after one look, one touch, one night…
Now I’m the one doing the chasing.
I need to find a way to show her that I’m serious, that I can change.
I need to find a way to show her that I can love her fully, and only her.
I need to find a way to show her that she’s my forever.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
can’t wait for y’all to read this!!!!
I’m going to start of by saying I think that Heidi McLaughlin is one very underrated contemporary romance author.
With each story she writes, the bar is raised higher. She brings a story that has the reader become more and more invested.
I have always loved the aspects of family and loyalty in the Beaumont books. And as Heidi writes about each of the guys of 4225 West, those elements become more layered and solidified.
Jimmy is no exception. His smart mouth and loose ways find focus and reason in FINDING MY FOREVER. And I would be lying if i didn’t say his British ‘charm’ didn’t make me all hot and flustered. Jimmy’s rockstar persona is only part of the allure. Behind all the music, the women, the slang and quips, Jimmy wants what every heart wants– to give it to someone else.
Heidi McLaughlin does a fabulous job of keeping the other members of 4225 West in the story and building their stories to keep us in the loop (so to speak) without overshadowing the main story. Ultimately they are interwoven with each other because of the whole family and loyalty aspect.
Many times, i find myself getting bored with series by the third book. With the Beaumont Series, I never want them to end. Finding My Forever had a beautiful balance of angst, suspense, love, schmexy and good heart mojo. Although the Beaumont Series is about these gorgeous rock boys, the stories do not rely on the rock god hottie facto to carry the books. That’s what ames these books worth reading. They are feel good books that go beyond the tattoos, drums, guitars and groupies.
And as I said before Heidi is extremely underrated. I hope that you will take the time to discover her stories and see her love for writing in them. Not to mention Liam, Harrison and Jimmy are so delish in every way!!!
OMG! OMG! OMG! Jimmy stopped by Flirty and Dirty. Ok my fan girl moment is over. Maybe.
Hey Jimmy! So excited you stopped by. Um, so I just wanna stare at you for a moment
k? *whispers– omg flirty and dirty crew, he is seriously lady boner hot*
You can stare at me AS MUCH AS YOU WANT. I can take my shirt off if you’d prefer?
Ladies, I’m not sure if I can continue this interview. If Jimmy takes his shirt off, I’m pretty sure I’ll be rendered speechless.
1. So how are you enjoying hanging out in Beaumont with the boys? I know you are more of a big city guy.
Beaumont is cool. It’s pretty laid back and the scenery is very inviting if you know what I mean.
2. How is it with all the kids and domestication in the band now? Did you ever think Liam and Harrison would settle down like they have? Do you think this kind of life is for you?
Nah, I never thought Liam would find a wife, but he did. And Harrison never really had a girlfriend before so for him to have the hots for Katelyn is perfect. The kids are fun to have around. I like the twins a lot and I’m getting to know Noah. I’ve known Quinn for some time now. You never know that kind of life with a wife and two kids might be for me some day.
3. You are an extremely talented musician. Why don’t we get to see more of your talent? I’m sure Liam would love to let the fans in on what you’re hiding.
4225 West is Liam and Harrison’s band. They started it after playing in a bar before they signed with their agent. I came on board a few years later and to be honest I don’t mind my place in the band. I’m happy to play with them.
Maybe you can play for us sometime. I’ve heard you and you truly are amazing!
I’d play for you anytime, D
*whispers* ladies don’t tell Harrison but I think I’m in love. *winks*
4. I know you can’t give away any secrets, the big boss (Heidi) will cut both of us but I’m wondering if you an tell us what it is about ‘her’ that is different from all the rest? Cuz lets face it, women would pay you to sleep with them.
Ah, my Sweet Lips. It’s more like why not her? Her smile, the way she smells, the way she looks at me just makes me weak in the knees. I get a hard on when she walks passed. I even get one when she gives me a dirty look. But it’s the way she looks at me when she wants me. I know she’ll be screaming my name in a matter of seconds.
She is one lucky lady. I’m glad you found each other. I’m really happy for both of you.
5. Do you have any desire to go back to the UK?
Yeah definitely, I’ll go back. I have to give someone special a tour.
Now let’s do a few fun and random things…
Bangers and mash
I knew it. LOL
Favorite position. Wait I need to get some cold water and a towel LOL
I like my girl to be on top so I can watch her gorgeous tits bounce up and down.
*whimpers and blushes*
Favorite music other than your own.
Oh I pretty much like a bit of everything, really. JT, Emenim, maybe some P!nk. Music has to be sexy and inviting. I want to be able to make love to my woman with something playing in the back ground.
And when you come to Flirty and Dirty there is always one question you have to answer. *let’s see how his answers compare to his band mate Harrison* You ready Jimmy?
Yeah… *cheeky grin and devilish eye*
One flirty thing about you and one dirty thing about you.
I can undress you with my eyes and let me just say, ladies, you’re looking mighty fine. I think, D, that you have that one spot, right about… oh yeah you know you want me to touch you.
Dammit Jimmy! i don’t think the water can get cold enough. *sticks tongue out at him*
As for dirty… My bird says I do this thing with my tongue…
Thanks so much for coming Jimmy. You know you’re welcome to anytime. *winks*
Oh I’m not done yet. I’m just beginning with you and Nic!
