#NewRelease 5* #Review Calling Me Back by @louisesbay @wordsmithpublic

Join us in celebrating the release of the Calling Me Back by Louise Bay!

Calling Me
Erotic Novella Series

Is it possible for a guy to turn on a switch and realize he’s been in love with a girl that’s been under his nose for over a decade? Ashleigh Franklin can’t decide.

Ashleigh wants the fairy tale. Ever since she was a kid, her best friend’s brother, Luke, has been her fantasy Prince Charming. Now he’s trying to convince her that she’s the one he’s wanted all these years. There’s no way it’s that easy to escape the friend zone.

Single after years living with a girlfriend, Luke has finally woken up. What he’s been waiting for has been right under his nose for almost his entire life. Can he persuade her that he’s serious and won’t break her heart?

A Wonder Woman costume, a bottle of tequila and a game of truth or dare between two close friends changes everything.

REVIEW- 5 Stars
I always love Louise Bay’s novella series, and this one lives up to the rest. I was so excited to get Luke and Ashleigh’s story! I loved them as secondary characters in Jake & Haven’s books.

            I was surprised that Calling Me Back actually started with Luke and Emma still together. Luke really is oblivious to the world around him. Having his world rocked by the loss of his parents so young, has made him wary of change. He wants things to simply stay as they are.
            He’s completely blindsided by Emma’s announcement that she wants to get married. Now, let’s just hash that out for a second, it’s clear in The Lightening series that Luke and Emma practically live separate lives. Then in Calling Me Back, Luke even points out that they give each other freedom, and don’t really have a life together outside of the home they share. So, I have to say, I’m with Luke on this one. I would have been somewhat shocked too. But more than anything, I’m sitting here and thinking, how in the world could Emma possibly get the idea of marrying and having children with Luke? What kind of marriage would they have when they barely spend any time together, barely speak, don’t know each other’s friends and family, etc etc etc.
            I was actually pretty annoyed with Luke too. The fact that he even considers marrying Emma is ludicrous. But then, he’s lost to his aversion to change. Anyway, when he finally makes the right decision, it’s not long before he is clobbered over the head with the fact that Ashleigh has always been the one for him. And the hot scene that ensues….oh my, oh my.
            In the light of day, and the influence of others, Ashleigh is faced with doubts. How could Luke go from 0 to 60 in a split second? Her fear at this point is somewhat justified, but I still wasn’t happy about it. As always, I want to strangle Louise for leaving me on a cliffhanger! However, it was expected…. So, I’ll get over it.
            Loved the start of Luke and Ashleigh’s story, and I can’t wait for the rest!

About the Author:
USA Today bestselling author, Louise Bay writes sexy, contemporary romance novels – the kind she likes to read. Her books include the novels Faithful and Hopeful and the novella series’ The Empire State Series, What the Lightning Sees and Calling Me. The novels and together each series are stand-alone although there are some overlapping characters.

Ruined by romantic mini-series of the eighties, Louise loves all things romantic. There's not enough of it in real life so she disappears into the fictional worlds in books and films.

Louise loves the rain, the West Wing, London, days when she doesn’t have to wear make-up, being on her own, being with friends, elephants and champagne.

She loves to hear from readers so get in touch!
