A Military Men Novella

September 3rd 2013


They say you never forget your first time, but there's nothing Blue Butler and Kasper Pennington would rather forget than their brief but fiery teenage love affair. Yeah, it was hot while it lasted, but then he went off to join the Marines, leaving Blue in New Orleans. She's tried to block him from her mind for good, but nothing can really erase the feeling she had when she was with him.

And now he's got the nerve to return—leaner, meaner, and strong enough to pull her into his arms and kiss her senseless. Blue's a successful businesswoman now, with no time to figure out what went wrong all those years ago. But Kasper knows she's the one woman for him … and now he's got to prove it to her all over again.


The thing about novellas is that I always want MORE. Blue By You is yet another novella that I tortured myself with.

I L O V E Rachel Gibson, and I feel like Blue By You is one of her best! Set in swampy hot Louisiana, there’s so much history crammed into these six chapters, I’m positively swooning. I’d love for this to be a full length and in an audio book, recorded by someone with a rich, deep Creole lilt to her voice.

I’m also sad that this is a Novella because I could have handled a LOT more Kasper. I mean… a lot. He sounds delicious and swarthy and so not good for anyone. Those are the best kind, the ones that aren’t good for you.

I am going to uselessly and futilely hope that we’ll see Blue and Kasper in a full length novel at some point!
