When she was in her cat form, Callie loved being petted. However, she was no way close to being a people person. People always did something to piss her off and Callie always had a comeback waiting in the wings. Ripping people to shreds with her words was Callie’s favorite hobby. She knew her mouth was going to get her in a sticky situation one day, but Callie never expected to like it.

Things really got interesting when the queen of the bar that Callie hangs out issues a challenge; anyone who can still Callie’s tongue wins a romp in bed with her for the night.

For months, Eli had been in the bar watching and wanting Callie. She had a fierceness that Eli found irresistible. One night with her would never be enough for him. All Eli had to do was convince Callie that he is the man who can deliver everything she wants and needs, no matter what she says.

Callie and Eli burn up the pages when they get together in the latest addition to the Bedtime Series Shut Up! Eli was supposed to be the one doing the taming but Callie definitely brought him to heel, as well. As tough as Callie seems on the outside, she is no different than every other woman, once you get past her wall. We all have coping strategies and Callie’s just happens to be her mouth. If Callie were a real person, she would either be your best friend or your worst enemy. Not many men would take the time to dig deeper and get into Callie’s heart and I’m glad that Eli was that man. He was more than I originally thought.

Marteeka Karland gives Eli a clever back story that has me dying to know more about his past. This story has a perfect balance of humor and heat that will leave readers wanting more.
