Blog Tour: Out of the Blue by Carina Adams

*This book is #2 in the 'Bama Boys series. While it can be read as a standalone, it is a continuation of book #1 and is meant to be read after Forever Red.*

Putting others needs before his own was all Mike Carson had ever done.

First, it was the friends he loved more than family. Then it was his country. By nineteen, he was a father, a husband and fighting in a war not many people believed in. After an accident ended his career and his life fell apart, he filled his days keeping screaming fans from reaching the most famous country rock star in the world. And, pining after a woman who would never love him.
Then, everything changed.

He thought he could handle anything that was thrown his way. He thought running my security detail would be the easiest job he’d ever had. He thought he’d be able to keep me safe without getting attached.

He was wrong.

They call me reckless, selfish, and slutty. In reality, I’ve just stopped caring what everyone else thinks. I’m determined to have some fun, to live life my way, and to make Mike realize that being a little selfish isn't the worst thing in the world.

I think we both have our work cut out for us.

5 star Review by Jen Skewes

When I read Forever Red I completely fell in love with Nate Kelly.  But there was also the man behind the scenes that I could not over look or forget about.  He is the man that everyone loved, the man that everyone wanted to see happy, and the man that we all wanted a story for.  He is Mike Carson, and my God did I fall in love with him.  

I think anyone who read Forever Red wanted Mike’s story just as badly as I did.  When I first read the blurb for Out of the Blue I wondered who his love interest could possibly be. And then Carina sent me the first few chapters to beta read and when I found out who it was all I could say was “No Freakin Way!”  And by the end of the book I can sit here and tell you that Carina Adams is pure genius.  I was completely shocked by who his interest was but my God was she the perfect choice.  If you fell in love with Nate and Lia then just wait until you read Mike Carson and his girl’s story because they will knock your socks off.  These two are just made for each other. 

There is a part of me that wants to keep it a secret so you can be pleasantly surprised just as I was. But I know with all the reviews out there it won't be possible.  But I may just keep you guessing a bit longer. Lol. 

At the end of Forever Red, Ms. Adams gave us an epilogue that was powerful and at the same time shocking.  It broke my heart to see how much pain Mike was in.  I knew he loved Lia and that they had a special relationship. But I never thought he felt that way about her.  As much as she belongs with Nate a part of me wished he got his girl.   So seeing how much he loves her I could not imagine how he could ever get past that and find happiness himself. But Ms. Adams gave him an amazing and beautiful woman who he loves in ways that he never loved Lia. And over time he sees that maybe everything isn't always as it seems.  

Mike left his job as Nate Kelly's security guard because seeing the woman he loved, married and in love with someone else was just too painful for him. But when Lia comes knocking on his door begging him to return to work because they need,  he can't say no.  But this time around it's not Nate that he will be working for.  He will be guarding and protecting Molly Ray.  He's known Molly for a few years since working for Nate.  They're friends and Molly is a really awesome girl. But never in a million years did he think that he would fall for her.  Yes!!!! Molly Ray and Mike Carson!!  See, total shock!! Ok back to the story. Mike's job is to protect Molly but along the way they become so much more.  But Molls has a past and so does Mike.  With their pasts coming back to haunt the both of them, the rumors flying around, and the paparazzi everywhere, can these two even make it together. And what happens when the tour ends, will that be the end of their relationship as well? will have to read for yourself. 

I cannot begin to tell you how much I loved Mikey and Mols. These two have a connection that is amazing and honestly I really have no words for it.  They are sexy and adorably cute together.  Mike is in a word perfect.  He is sexy, controlling in a way that makes him even sexier but he also has one of the biggest hearts EVER!!!! He will do anything to protect his family and those he loves.  Protecting Molly was a job but to be honest it was so much more for him.  He protected her because he cared.  I thought I loved Nate Kelly but man I think may love Mikey more.  He is that special! 

And Molly...well I have one big girl crush on her. She has been through a lot in her life.  And while she is spunky and feisty there is also a part of her that doesn’t always stick up for herself.  But with a man like Mike by her side and two best friends such as Nate and Lia she will get through what life has decided to throw her way.  

I loved watching these two fall for each other.  They both felt it, the connection that they had but I think they were also both scared and it took a little longer to admit what was really going on.  But I felt it.  I felt them falling for each other.  I felt the love, the connection, and the emotions that they felt.  I was on this journey with them and experienced all of the emotions with them. 

I don’t think anyone would ever expect Mikey and Mols to end up together but Ms. Adams gave us such an amazingly beautiful story that when it was all over you just knew that there is no other perfect match for Mike Carson than Molly Ray. When he called her kid I just melted.  When she called him Mikey, a huge smile stretched across my face (sigh).  Words cannot express how much I loved these two.  They are right up there with Lia and Nate.  

Once again Carina Adams has blown me away.  It is her words that made me feel everything with these characters.  I was hooked from the very first page until the very last.  And to be honest I did not want to let go of these characters.  I was so sad to see this story end.  It stayed with me for days. This is one of those books that I can go back and read over and over again.  As I write this review I have a smile on my face just thinking of Mike and Molly.  

I have been a fan of Carina’s since the very beginning.  I fell in love with her writing and her characters since reading her debut novel (Always Been Mine).  I think she has grown so much as a writer and each book just gets better and better.  I look forward to anything that this woman writes.  I am so excited for Noah’s story and looking forward to more time with this family that I feel like I am a part of.  Another amazing job Ms. Adams!! 

Forever Red

“We are going to get in that porn star shower and use it for what it was designed for.”
I glanced over his shoulder, trying to see said shower, but the curtain was pulled. Mike’s fingers, racing back up my legs, pulled my gaze away. When two fingers snuck under my lace panties and yanked, tearing them straight from my body, I jerked my eyes back to him. He merely raised a brow.
“You’re going to wash my hair?”
My bra was his next victim, and it went sailing over his head and across the room behind him. “Such a smartass.” His thumb traced my bottom lip. “I’m going to wash every single part of you, Miss Molly. But I’m going to get you very dirty first.”
He stepped back, putting just a smidge of distance between us before yanking his own shirt over his head and then dropping his jeans. The man had gone commando. Good Lord, he was trying to kill me.
I longed to run my fingertips down the deep ridge between his pecs, tracing the bumps of his six pack, then over his hard flat stomach. From there, I could walk my fingers to his hips and back, enjoying the shallow grooves that formed a v, leading straight to…
I completely lost my train of thought when I realized that he was once again bare. Bald. I did what I could to keep up with my ladyscaping while I was on tour, but the bus wasn’t really the best location to maintain a close shave, and there were no places along our tour route that I trusted for a drop-in wax. How in the hell did he find the time to keep himself hair free?
Unable to keep the thought to myself, I asked him. Instead of responding, he raised an eyebrow and watched me for a minute before he tipped his head back and laughed.
I waited until he’d composed himself a little. “What in the hell is so funny?”
He only grinned. “Only you.” He shook his head, still smiling. “I’m standing here, buck ass naked, looking like this”—he glanced down at his body while motioning to the part of his anatomy that was pointing at me—“and the only thing you notice is that I shaved.”
I settled my hands on my hips and narrowed my eyes at him, ready with a snappy comeback when I realized that his eyes were glued to my chest. I dropped my eyes, remembering too late that I was just as naked as he was and the girls were pushed out because of the way I was standing. I moved my eyes back to his face, rolling them when I saw that his were still glued to my boobs.
I gave them a little shimmy, just a little shake, making him groan. The entire situation was so absurd, a scene from someone else’s life—not mine—that I started to laugh. Within seconds, he’d joined me, and we were two naked morons cackling in a hotel bathroom until tears burned my eyes.

Carina Adams has been writing and creating characters for as long as she can remember, allowing her to fall in love with the next man of her dreams with every new story.
Thankfully, fate stepped in and granted her the ultimate wish - a life full of men. Carina lives in a picturesque New England town with her husband, the man who ruined the thought of all others, and two amazing sons who always keep her on her toes.

Carina received her MBA in May, but would much rather play with her imaginary friends (the voices in her head) than work her 8 to 5. When she isn’t trying to juggle being a working mom with karate and football practices, surprising her children with her sci-fi movie knowledge, or writing, you can find her with her nose pressed against her kindle, laughing with friends, or living life vicariously as her Derby Girl persona, Writers Block.

Carina is the author the of Bastards MC series and best selling Forever Red. She is currently writing Out of The Blue, the follow up to Forever Red. She loves to hear feedback from her readers, no matter what type. You can email her
