Overview

Lovers to friends to lovers...could it get any more complicated?

One thing Carissa Brandt knows: spontaneity always gets her in trouble. Still, she's gone and jumped head first into an impulsive summer renovation project with her fingers crossed. When her contractor turns out to be a cheat, it seems her only lifeline is the proffered hand of Josh Hudson-the sexy Marine who left her aching for more than their single night together three years ago.

Josh has two hard and fast rules: never mix business with pleasure and don't look twice at women his friends have dated, much less loved. It makes life in a small town simple-or it would, if he wasn't harboring a secret with the potential to destroy his good name and the reputation of a woman he can't get out of his head.

When Carissa finds herself in a bind, Josh's integrity-both personal and professional-won't let her fail. Will working together finally extinguish the attraction lingering between them? Or will the smoldering embers of their passionate rendezvous ignite all over again and set aflame the friendships they cherish the most?

Warning: This book contains a hella-sexy, inked up hero, a spunky heroine who isn't afraid to speak her mind, smokin' hot sex, and enough swearing to make your momma blush.

A page turner from the start to the finish!  I love all the main and secondary characters in this book and can't wait to continue the series!  Carissa and Josh have an amazing story that pulls you in from the start!  Definitely a great read and recommend for everyone!

This book was sooooo boring. I cannot believe the amount of anxiety about a promise made when the male characters were young kids. Give me a break.

A very good read! Loved the main characters even though at times I was very frustrated with them. Found myself saying, Suck it up and do the right thing, Josh! more than a few times. Glad he did. No time for more review - gotta go buy the next book.

5 HOT Down-Home Stars! TITLE~ Can't Shake You (River Bend #1) AUTHOR~ Molly McLain GENRE~  New Adult-Romance-Contemporary PUBLISHED~ February 21st 2014 by Molly McLain  PURCHASED/COST~ ARC for review as part of Red Hot Obsessions MY RATING~ 5/5 MY THOUGHTS~  I chose to read this book because I received an ARC of Red Hot Obsessions for review and this book was included in it. I LOVE this book! It was an awesome read from front to back! This was a great introduction to the River Bend series. It was hot, steamy, sexy...I could go on. I immediately feel in love with the characters and the story line. Can't Shake You is very well written and author, Molly McLain did a wonderful job at making us feel like we really knew the characters. I will most definitely continue reading this series and anything else Molly McLain writes in the future!

I've read this book several times now and I still just love it. I love the relationship between the two of them and though it does get a little frustrating when Josh won't man up and tell his best friend about the two of them, it all ends up right in the end. I think it demonstrates that we all make mistakes and the longer we let those mistakes rule of lives the more we have to loose. It's a common flaw and I think the author did a good job staying true to the characters through out the book. The whole series is amazing and I highly recommend reading all of them.

Carissa can't shake Josh and I can't shake this book. I loved it. It was sweet and sexy and romantic -- a second chance at a relationship between two people who had a connection from the first moment they laid eyes on each other. As much as they fought it, Carissa and Josh's desire to be together and the connection that bound them to one another couldn't be ignored. There just wasn't anything not to like about Can't Shake You; it was a perfect read. And there really isn't anything to dislike about sexy, tattooed, noble, loyal, overprotective, self-deprecating military men (DUH). Definitely will be reading more from Molly McClain.

Sounds like this is a new author and I think she is improving. I actually read the 2nd book in this series first. The 2nd book was very engaging. This one was okay but, like some of the other readers, I found it hard to believe that two adults who are so drawn to each other could be deterred by their own fears of how their friends will react. However, I enjoyed the other aspects of this story. There are some minor typos but they didn't impact my enjoyment of the story.

Not bad Fairly well written. I liked the characters, OK story line, tension, passion some danger. Not so exciting that I want to read more of the series. I like enough details to see the scene, feel the characters, experience the passion and it wasn't quite enough for me.

Im not typically one for romance novels, but I loved this one. The character were very well developed and the story kept me on my toes. Not your typical trashy romance.

AWSOME

It was confusing how the characters were sometimes called by first names and sometimes last names only and even in the same paragraph at times. Frustrating storyline and I wanted to just shake the main characters and say wake up, get it together!
