Boys of Bishop, book #2
Perfect for readers of Susan Elizabeth Phillips and Rachel Gibson, Molly O’Keefe’s second novel in her exciting new series—The Boys of Bishop—features an irresistible romance and unforgettable characters in a page-turning story that delivers equal parts emotion and humor . . . with a little edge to boot.
As the daughter of a wealthy politician, Ashley Montgomery has had enough of her parents’ expectations for her future and is going her own way, volunteering to work at a refugee camp in Africa. But her act of charity turns dangerous when she takes a boat trip and is abducted by Somali pirates. Enter Brody Baxter, who was a bodyguard for the Montgomery family ten years ago and doesn’t think twice about coming to Ashley’s rescue. Handsome and tough, Brody has always done what needed to be done. So he swoops in, saves Ashley, and brings her to a place where she can rest and recuperate without the glare of the press and her demanding family: Brody’s small hometown of Bishop, Arkansas. But Ashley soon realizes that she’s not the only one in need of healing.
Holed up with Ashley in a tiny apartment over his brother’s bar in Bishop, Brody is tempted and torn in ways he never anticipated. Beautiful Ashley, vibrant despite her ordeal, fearless enough to love him beyond his wall of self-punishment, is now determined to save him. But with a little faith and a lot of love, they just may find happiness in each others’ arms.

Alright ladies, I bring you the very hot and dashing Brody Baxter from Molly O’Keefe’s Never Been Kissed. Let’s find out all about him, shall we!
Hi Brody, I’m really excited to have you here at The La La Land of Books.
Me: Why don’t you start by telling me a bit about yourself.
Brody: I’m a carpenter in Bishop, Arkansas. Before that I was a bodyguard and before that a Marine. You, know you should really ask Ashley some of this stuff. She’s the talker.
Me: What makes you tick as a person?
Brody: These days, it’s taking care of my family. My Dad, my brother. Ashley. I’ve got some employees now…I just want to do right by the people in my life.
Me: What are your best and worst qualities?
Brody: How in the world would I know?
Me: Fine, what would Ashley say were your best and worst qualities.
Brody: Well, I suppose I can be stubborn.
Me: Is that the best or the worst quality?
Brody: Can’t it be both? Without stubborn the hard stuff doesn’t get done.
Me: You’ve been through a lot in your life. What gave you the strength to overcome all the difficulties and come out strong?
Brody: Wow. You’re not pulling any punches with these questions. There isn’t much of a choice, is there? When life goes sour, you’ve got to keep marching. Eventually, something will change. In my case, it was Ashley.
Me: What do you look for in a girl? Actually, scratch that. What should I do to snatch you right from under Ashley’s nose?
Brody: Sorry, but that’s an impossibility. Ashley is everything. But one of the things that I really like about her is she’s funny. Sometimes she doesn’t know it. She makes me laugh all the time.
Me: What was it like, fighting pirates, saving Ashley, being her white knight?
Brody: All in a day’s work?
Me: Is that…are you joking with me?
Brody: I really don’t understand why people don’t think I’m funny. I’m very funny. In all honesty, the pirate stuff was easy. I just got her out of there. It was the way afterward, she pushed and shoved and manipulated me into being brave enough to go after her – that stuff was way harder.
Me: What makes you and Ashley tick as a couple?
Brody: She’s got the big ideas and I help her get them done. She’s the most loving and genuine person I’ve ever met and every day I am grateful that she cracked me wide open.
Me: You tried really hard to push Ashley away. And yet she never left you. Why do you think that is?
Brody: Because that smile hides a back bone of steel inches thick.
Me: What do you think are Ashley’s best and worst qualities?
Brody: She can give of herself until there’s nothing left. Learning how to say no, is kind of a problem. She’s stubborn.
Me: Tell me a secret not even Ashley knows. I swear I’ll be mum.
Brody: Oh, man, you’ve got to PROMISE… once when I was a kid, I dared Sean, my brother to sneak into the porn section of the video store. But Sean is a terrible sneak so he went in and then quickly got caught. The guy that runs the video section was about to call our Mom, who would have KILLED US. So, I started stealing movies, shoving them up under my shirt, being real conspicuous. The guy put down the phone, Sean made a run for it, I dropped the movies and ran after him. The guy chased for a little bit, but then stopped. He never called my mom, and we never went into the video store again.
That’s pretty tame as far as secrets go…
That’s all your getting.
Alright ladies and gents, that was Brody Baxter for you. I had a real fun time with him. I hope you did too. Make sure you read Never Been Kissed to find out more about him.
