Boys of Bishop, book #3

Perfect for readers of Susan Mallery and Rachel Gibson, Between the Sheets is Molly O’Keefe’s final book in the Boys of Bishop trilogy, featuring a sizzling romance between a sexy motorcycle bad boy and the girl next door who can’t resist him.

After years of running, Wyatt Svenson has now parked himself in Bishop, Arkansas, trying to do the right thing and parent a son he didn’t even know he had until recently. Over six feet tall and packed with muscles and power, Ty likes to get his hands dirty, fixing his motorcycle at night and keeping his mind away from the mistakes he’s made. Then his pretty neighbor shows up on his driveway, doesn’t bother to introduce herself, and complains about the noise. First impression? She should loosen up. Funny that she turns out to be his son’s elementary school art teacher—and the only one willing to help his troubled boy. Ty needs her. In more ways than one.

Though Shelby Monroe is safe in her structured life, she is drawn to Ty’s bad-boy edge and rugged sexuality. What if she just lets it all go: her worries about her mother, her fear of heartbreak, and her tight self control? What if she grabs Ty and takes a ride on the wild side? “What if” becomes reality—intense, exhilarating . . . and addictive. But Ty wants more than a secret affair. He wants it all with Shelby. But will she take a chance and open her heart? Ty is determined to convince Shelby to take the biggest risk of her life: on him.


Songs for Shelby
Shelby is a tough one. She has a giant ocean of love to give but no courage at hand to give it.  The whole book was born listening to Sweet Lorraine by Patty Griffin, and I urge you to hunt that song down  and listen to it. Here are my favorite lyrics:
Sweet Lorraine – Patty Griffin
In the battle of time in the battle of will
It’s only your hope and your heart that gets killed
And it gets harder and harder lorraine, to believe in magic
When what came before you is so very tragic
Lorraine, sweet Lorraine
Lorraine, sweet Lorraine
Readers first meet Shelby in WILD CHILD and in the book she engages in some pretty dangerous and wild behavior in an effort to FEEL SOMETHING. ANYTHING.  So that someone will SEE her. And frankly, I’ve been trying NOT to use a thousand Springsteen songs, but this one is just too perfect, about a heartbroken, lonely man who steals cars, trying to get caught – but never does. 
Stolen Car – Bruce Springsteen
And I’m driving a stolen car
On a pitch black night
And I’m telling myself I’m gonna be alright
But I ride by night and I travel in fear
That in this darkness I will disappear
Shelby and Ty start a relationship that Shelby insists is only physical and she’s blunt and cold, but her real feelings – her terrible loneliness and craving for Ty is just so plain. And this song…holy cow…this is SUCH a song!!

Stay With Me – Sam Smith
Why am I so emotional?
No, it’s not a good look, gain some self-control
And deep down I know this never works
But you can lay with me so it doesn’t hurt
Shelby admits to her feelings far later than Ty but when she does, I feel like she’s fierce. And once they’re together, Ty and his son Casey, she’s like this  Mama Bear.  Finally, all this love has a place to go and it’s amazing. 

What I Wouldn’t Do – Serena Ryder
I’ll carry the weight
I’ll do anything for you
My bones may break
but I’ll never be untrue
Woah-oh-oh Woah
Woah-oh-oh Woah
Woah-oh-oh Woah
Oh what I wouldn’t do
Oh what I wouldn’t do
