Jacob Keller is a country music superstar, coming off a world tour. Little does he know an obsessed fan intends to finally make him see they are meant to be.  

Miss Whitney Blithe moved to Beaumont Falls by chance, and ends up interviewing Jake for the hometown paper. She has secrets of her own.  

When they start dating, the obsessed fan is not happy. Jacob is a dominant man, but will Whitney let him protect her? He might have to punish her enough to make her see he has her best intentions at heart.  

Publisher’s Note: While this is the second in the Kellers of Beaumont Falls series, it can be enjoyed as a standalone. This contemporary romance contains explicit themes, including power exchange. 

 

Prologue 

Beaumont Falls 

There had been no mistake, the private plane carrying Jacob Keller would be landing tonight on the little airstrip just outside of the city limits. One good thing about small towns was it was easy to get information. Everyone trusted everyone which made eavesdropping so easy. Criminally easy. Jakes tour was wrapping up. Theyd play a few local spots, but he was home. Finally. For good.  

The sounds of shoppers begging deals from the hawkers faded into the background. The constant crunch of shoes on gravel, the blur of bodies crowding the aisles all disappeared. The fan could hear nothing but Mrs. Wilson and Sam. Well, I hear Jake and Charlotte will be home soon. I reckon Charlotte missed that baby of hers a lot.  

Jake’s sister, and manager, Charlotte, and her husband Harris had welcomed a baby into their family last year. Sam replied, Yeah, Jakes been full out since this fame thing all started, and I think hes ready for a break, too. 

Mrs. Wilson smiled. So its true. Your brother is coming home tonight. You must be so happy!  

That was music to the ears. Almost as sweet as Jakes voice. The fan smiled, too. They would be together. At last.  

What were the last words the fan heard Jacob speak? Oh, yes, it was that interview he had done with that slut reporter. Yes, Im looking forward to going home, and being normal for a while. I built a big house in my favorite part of town, and I think Ive slept in it like four times. So, itll be cool to make it feel like home. Ive been dreaming about eating my mamas lasagna on the patio and having bon fires on the beach since last year.  

The fan sighed, knowing the exact beach Jake was referring to. There, when Jake had no idea someone was watching, the obsessed fan would be tucked away in the shadows. Because of Jakes celebrity, the stalker knew when he would be home, what he planned on doing during his brief stays, who he would see, where he would spend time.  

Yet, for all of the stalkers careful planning, each attempt to connect to Jake went awry. The desperation to see him grew worse with each failed attempt at an accidental meeting. Then Jake bought the lake side property. The thought of him being so close and still so far away fueled the obsession. As the construction went on, at least a few times a day the stalker drove by the massive gate to the Keller compound. It was clear Jake was planning to move home. He was putting so much money into the area.  

By this time, the compulsion to see him was all encompassing. Jake had repeatedly turned down doing an interview with the hometown paper, citing his need to be considered just a normal Beaumont citizen. As if Jake could ever just be normal.  

The stalker began studying maps of the area at the library, and soon enough had made a small path through the woods that came out directly onto Jakes private beach. The canopy of the trees provided the perfect cover. The plan was to observe him for a while, cloaked in the safety of the shadows, before approaching him. It would take a few days, maybe more, to casually run into him, but when the time was perfect Jake would finally see they were meant to be together.  

On the night of Jakes planned arrival, cloaked in secrecy by the trees and shrubbery, the watchful eyes peered out, waiting for some show of activity.  

The upstairs light offered a slight hint of the room inside. Four-poster bed with dark-wood, two-drawer bedside tables at either side, big bay window, and his tall dresser topped with pictures of the family. In the deepest corners of the stalkers mind lay a picture of the two of them finally nestled in the big plush bed 

Crouched in the bushes, masturbating, but mindful of any movement around the estate, the stalker fantasized about their first time together. Jake would be gentle at first and then would come the heady feeling of fullness as his cock plunged deep, without mercy, again and again. His handsome face would be shadowed by his Stetson, his lips drawn back and contorted in ecstasy.  

The hand cupping the throbbing genitals moved more vigorously, as the imagined moment came to completion. It wasnt long now until it would be real. The stalker smiled as the ripple of a powerful orgasm exploded, and a stifled cry disturbed the otherwise quiet night 

Then, in the brief moments following, as composure once more began to set in, Sam’s truck pulled up, with more shadows inside. One was his! It had to be. The passenger side and back door opened, and there he was, in the flesh only about fifteen meters away. Almost close enough to touch 

As the lights came on inside, the hooded eyes watched skillfully for movement. Jake went upstairs after playing with the mutts, offering a brief, but welcome glimpse of the superstar removing his shirt to reveal toned abs and rippling bi-ceps. God, he was beautiful! Another light came on, this time in the master bathroom, hinting that a shower was on his mind.  

When the lights went out, the stalker slipped back to the path that wound back to where a vehicle was parked. Soon, my love, the fan promised in the still of the night. A whisper in the wind. 


Chapter 1 

Earlier that evening… 

The lights were lowered. You could hear a proverbial pin drop in a crowd of over twenty thousand people. Tonights concert was a charity benefit put together at the last minute to help those who were left homeless after a hurricane had battered the Atlantic coast. Thousands were left with nothing, and those who were lucky enough to salvage some of their possessions were still struggling to come to terms with the sheer devastation. Some of the music industrys biggest names, many who called the eastern seaboard home, were donating their time and talents to help raise desperately needed funds. 

Jacob Keller, one of the top A-listers in the business, was on the final leg of his sold-out world tour when he received the call from Tilly Cole. He and Tilly had known each other for years. After meeting in Nashville, pounding the pavement looking for work, they struck up a friendship. They were practically neighbors: Jacob grew up in Beaumont Falls, Maine. Tilly grew up in Frenchtown, New Jersey which took the brunt of the damage from the hurricane. For her, this was as personal as a cause gets. 

Jillian Andrews had done her usual outstanding job as Jacobs PR director, shielding him from the many calls asking him to play the benefit. Jake didnt blame her. She knew how much he wanted to be home. When Tilly went around Jillian, calling Jake personally, he was more than happy to make one final stop in New York. Home would have to wait a few more hours. Saying no to Tilly had never come easy to him, and this was no exception.  

Tilly and Jake had made a pact while scrounging for work in Nashville, barely making ends meet. Whoever made it big first would give a leg up to the other. As luck would have it, RK Liberty Studios, an up and coming recording studio, had signed them both. Jakes debut album hit platinum the same year as Tillys debut went gold. Despite becoming big names in the business, their friendship never wavered. Touring together could have destroyed the friendship, but instead they grew closer. They had even done a wildly successful duet together, garnering them a shared award for the number one best-selling single Dont Forget Me. For a while, rumors even surfaced of a torrid affair between them. The public loved it! 

Jacob loved Tilly, but she wasnt his type. Tilly was the picture of a 21st century woman: strong, self-sufficient, in charge of her own destiny. Jake wanted a more traditional relationship. His future wife would be submissive to him, especially sexually. They would make their home in the small town of Beaumont Falls and raise their children together, far from the glare of the superstar spotlight. 

Radio City Music Hall was humming with excitement as Jake made his entrance. This moment never failed to make his heart skip a beat. He heard his name chanted, felt the love from his fans, and as the first chords were struck, he hit his mark and the lights came on. 

The electrifying thrill lit all his senses, sending them soaring. He felt in tune with the crowds energy, giving him a natural high unlike any other. He would miss this when he was at home on the quiet calm lake. This moment, this feeling, would never grow old. 

As the blinding lights bathed him in a brilliant hot light, he felt like a spark was lit from the inside of his body illuminating him to the crowd. The arena was small, smaller than what he had played in a while, but the energy and excitement matched that felt in a venue twice the size. His fingers struck the chords of his first song as if they had a mind of their own. The crowd erupted with the sounds of pure joy, enthusiasm, and familiarity.  

Blame it all on the whiskey, Hell it may be true 

But I aint never seen an angel, look half as good as you 

I might just be some cowboy; youd never give the chance to know 

But if you grant me just this dance, I promise Ill go slow  

The song started slow, then ratcheted into high gear, catapulting the audience into the frenzy that every artist craved. When the crowd sang the lyrics back, Jake lit up, as if it was the first time hed heard it. They loved it, and him. He took it all in, his own lyrics filling his ears, words he wrote in complete private were being sung to him by thousands, word for word. It was a very humbling experience. Sometimes it was easy to get caught up in all the hype, and forget that the songs he wrote had the power to touch so many souls 

He went from that song into his next, Lets Count Stars, and then finally Hope, a song he had written shortly after a horrible shooting at a movie theater a few years back. The lyrics really resonated with the crowd, and before the end of the song, not a dry eye was left in the house.  

To close out on a more upbeat note, Tilly returned to the stage. The spotlight lit her up as she sang the first part of their duet.  

I called last night around ten, youre usually home.  

I picked it up to call again, but just hung up the phone.  

I need to get a few more things; Id like for us to talk.  

After all this time to start over again… seems like such a loss 

 

Jakes spotlight lit him up right on cue, and he picked up where she had left off.  

I saw your call, when I got home…  

but it was late, and I just wanted to tie one on.  

I closed my eyes and almost texted,  

but thank god had the sense to know sober me would regret it, baby. 

 

Then together they sang the chorus, their voices joining in jubilant harmony. 

Now the morning light is shining through,  

the curtains that listened to me and you 

Fight and cry, and once make love,  

all those nights we shared just the two of us, 

And I still cant think of what went wrong,  

to bring down a couple who seemed to strong 

But two meant to be, will be, its true  

If ya want to talk, Im seven digits away  

from right where you left me. Dont forget me. 

The performance was so powerful that he knew rumors of a romance between them would resurface. He lifted her off her feet in a bear hug at the end, and she whispered, Thank you. He set her down, gave her a wink, and together they faced the crowd. Thunderous applause shook the rafters, as both artists basked in the overwhelming love and adoration. When at last the audience quieted, Jacob spoke. 

 To all of you here tonight who have come out to forget the pain of everything that happened to you, I hope I have made that happen even for a moment. I also want ya’ll to know that many hearts are filled with love and prayers for you.  

The crowd erupted in cheers and whistles. The guitars in the background softly strummed the chords of his and Tillys final song, as he continued speaking 

I understand it is going to be a rough go for some of you to rebuild and start over. We hope that journey you have started here tonight will give you all the strength you need to get through the difficult times ahead. This is a time to bond with your neighbors, your friends, your family. And when the test seems too hard, and you feel like youre failing, remember God doesnt give us anything we cannot overcome!  

Again, cheers exploded, as Jake spun in a circle to point to his band who had been on the road with him for the duration of the tour, Me, and the boys here, are praying for you. God bless! He bowed and waved, kissing Tilly’s hand, and exiting stage right—into the path of Charlotte who was waiting behind the curtain. 

She beamed with pride at her brother. Good job, old man! she said, using the pet name he loved to hate. He leveled her with a glare that told her he was in no mood for teasing, but she was used to him by now and refused to let it bother her.  

 Brat. Jake smiled, giving Charlotte a quick kiss on the head as they walked through the crowd.  

Theres been several requests for a brief press conference, she said, already knowing where that would get her.  

Jake cast her a dark look, a warning and reminder of the promise she had made him when he agreed to play tonight. He had anonymously cut a check for ten grand, and felt his contribution was made. The rules were clear, in and out, no other business. Charlotte had the decency to look apologetic, but she had a difficult time turning people down when it came to children 

Okay, forget the press, just give me two minutes. Its to autograph a guitar they are going to sell on eBay for the relief fund. Think of all the homeless kids tonight, she stammered on.  

Jake stopped dead, giving her the evil eye. Was she really playing the kid card? He felt like he would never get home. Assessing the intense pleading expression on his sisters face, he held his hand out for the inevitable marker that she carried for just these occasions.  

Charlottes face lit up. Shed been expecting more of an argument. Her brother was ultimately a softy, and she was adept at tugging his heartstrings. Passing him the marker without making eye contact, she pointed him in the direction that they needed to walk, and he strode off ahead of her. Flashbulbs were going off as he signed the guitar. Much Love, Jake Keller 

He smiled and waved, doing his part to advertise that he did in fact autograph the instrument. Ignoring the flash of cameras and barrage of questions, he headed for the exit where the limo would be waiting. He hurried toward a driver holding up a card—Jake Keller. Along the way, he obliged a few lucky fans who called for autographs and pictures. One even snuck a kiss, which surprised him, but he laughed it off like the pro he was. 

Charlotte trailed close behind, smiling and waving to those fans who hadnt been able to make it inside. She was happy to have played a part in their excitement, even if they didnt know who she was or the part she played in getting the famous Jake Keller here tonight. Being behind the scenes made her happy. She was insanely proud of her brothers success. 

As the doors closed, and the limo pulled out into traffic, Jake sat back and closed his eyes. He couldnt wait to collapse in his own bed, and finally be on vacation. He pictured himself walking through the door to see his pups, who had been flown home yesterday into the care of Charlottes husband Harris. He longed to sleep in the comfort of the familiar, instead of some hotel suite 

Charlotte was busy on her phone, having sensed his need for quiet. Jake felt his own phone vibrate, and reached in to see if he had messages that needed attention. Tilly had texted him, thanking him again, and there were a few from his former friend-with-benefits, Jessica. That surprised him, since the last time they had spoken was well over six months ago. It hadnt been a pleasant parting. Jess wanted to come home with him for the holidays, and despite his usual tact at handling such situations, Jake had bombed that one.  

Jess had started to develop feelings, ones that Jake didnt reciprocate and he ended up breaking it off. Truth was, Jess wasnt the type of girl he wanted to take home to his mother. She was loud, bordered on obscene, and dressed too provocatively for his family. She needed a damn good spanking, but he could just picture the field day shed have selling that story to the papers. The relationship was based on her being a blast in bed, and at times a much-needed distraction.  

Purely out of curiosity, he clicked on the message. Hey handsome... Miss you... Im at the Ritz, room 1184 if you miss me too... Classy. Not. She must have heard he was in town. He started a message declining the offer, and then deleted it. The best thing was to just let it be. If he answered it could turn ugly, and he just wanted to relax for the next hour or so before landing in Beaumont. Man, did he need to recharge. This break was long overdue. He intended to enjoy it to the fullest.

First this can definitely be a stand alone book as this is the first one in series I have read but I will try and go back and read the first book as this one kept me entertained. This book is the kind I greatly enjoy as it has many twists, turns, mystery, suspense, sexual chemistry, erotic and disciplinary spankings and of course well rounded characters. If you enjoy this type of plot line and story I highly recommend this story.

Book two of The Kellers of Beaumont Falls was a great addition to the first book of Jordan and Tegan but can read well a stand-alone story. Jake Keller has avoided his family and their business, making his way in Nashville and is a well-known country music artist. He will come back to Beaumont Falls for some rest and relaxation, to enjoy his home, and visit with his family before his next tour.

Whitney Blithe moves from Utah to the quiet, quaint town of Beaumont Falls and lands her a job with the newspaper. What a shock when the elusive Jake Keller contacts the paper himself and wants to do an interview, but only with her.

The plot will have Jake coming back to town and seeing Whitney coming into the town diner he is at and learning from some of the older men who she is and where she works. As a man who never has believed in love at first sight, even if he sings those type of songs, he is enamored with Whitney immediately. Beaumont Falls is a town they have men who believe in domestic discipline, and women who submit, he knows that is how his parent%u2019s marriage is, and it is what he wants, someday.

The interview with Whitney will have Jake holding the upper hand, throwing her off, keeping her on edge and full of unexpected surprises. Jake doesn%u2019t dress the part of his country singer act, and he shocks her with his off-the-record remarks. But when he tells her about her needing a spanking, he can see a bit of shock with interest.

The story will bring up more of his past, with his best friend in high school, Kyle, that drowned in the lake. And now he and Whitney are dealing with an overzealous stalker fan who has now targeted Whitney, and the threat is serious enough that he must move her in the private family compound and his home. The danger has Whitney going off and letting her mouth get away with her, she disobeys his order, and he can%u2019t let it pass.

When Jake learns that she hasn%u2019t been completely truthful with him about her family, that will become a hard issue that he won%u2019t let her get away with. Lies of omission are still lies. The story will take on life and death issues when the stalker attacks and Whitney refuses to listen when Jake is just trying to keep her safe.

The story has many spankings and a few sex scenes. There is plenty of mystery and suspense, with secrets, angst, acceptance, and forgiveness with an HEA ending. I look forward to more stories in this series.

I am really enjoying this new series, the Kellers from Beaumont, a lot. Jake is one hard-nosed dominant guy. He can also be very sweet, but a bit overprotective. I like him but you will also want to grit your teeth and scream at his autocratic ways. Whitney is just adorable and she is bulldozed completely by Jake. I think she should have played harder to get in the beginning just to keep Jake in his toes and if a guy ever told me to quit my job and then did it for me I would have to leave him behind. At least until he saw the error of his ways. He was one strict man with punishments that had me cringing in sympathy for Whitney but he is quite the romantic too. So you will feel a rollercoaster of emotions while reading this story but it is a good one. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this book.

Jake is the second book in the Keller's of Beaumont Falls but can be read as a standalone. The story pulled me in from the beginning with plenty of mystery and crime, as I found myself trying to figure out who the stalker was out to get Whitney. Add this to the romance and chemistry between Jake and Whitney and I could not put the book down from start to finish. The author showed an alpha male with old fashioned values in love with a woman trying to accept this way of life. There were laughs, love a lot of mystery, crime, passion, spankings given in love and plenty more. However, the ending was truly a surprise as the stalker was revealed! I highly recommend this book for a great night's read! I voluntarily received an arc copy of this book.

Jake is a country music superstar who decides to take a break from the spotlight to return home. As soon as he sees Whitney, he knows he needs to meet her.

Whitney is tasked to interview Country star Jacob Keller. From the first minute they meet, they are attracted to each other and end up dating. But there are people who are not happy that Jacob has found his significant other and there is danger along the road. Unfortunately, Whitney is very headstrong and Jacob has to discipline Whitney to show her how important her safety is to him.

Jake is the second book of The Kellers of Beaumont Falls series. There is a lot of suspense and there are also some scenes that made me laugh. The intimate scenes were spicy and there are also quite a few spankings. I liked reading the book.

This is Book 2 in a series and I have not read Book 1 but this can easily be read as a standalone, although I will almost certainly go back and read Book 1. The main characters are Jacob Keller a world famous country singer. On stage Jake is everything one would expect to see, cowboy shirts and boots with a stetson hat etc, but when he returns to his home town and his house on the lake he is just Jake an old fashioned guy who loves to visit with the locals and be with his beloved dog. Whilst out for breakfast he sees Whitney and instantly wants to meet her. His breakfast companions tell him that she is a new reporter on the town newspaper and although Jake rarely gives interviews he lets the local editor send Whitney to meet with him to interview him. The chemistry between them is instant although Whitney has trouble believing that one such him could be interested in her. The story mostly centres around how Jake and Whitney become a couple but at the same time there is a stalker who has been watching Jake, it seems for ever. Jake is very old fashioned and believes in a domestic discipline relationship and complete honesty and although Whitney is reluctant to be spanked she soon agrees although she balks at telling Jake about her own family. Everything between them is wonderful, save for Whitney having regular trips across Jakes knees because she hasn't been completely truthful or has disobeyed him, however the stalker becomes very hostile towards Whitney and soon enough Jake is restricting her to the house. The identity if the stalker is a really good twist and the back story from Jakes younger years is also interesting. All in all a reasonably entertaining read well worth the effort. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy.
JigsawGirl on 03/23/2018 02:26pm
Good romantic suspense. There were a few moments to make you chuckle, but the book mostly revolved around the mysterious stalker, and Whitney's inability to do as Jake asked.

I was pretty surprised by the identity of the stalker and the interesting twist to the story. A fast paced entertaining read.

I voluntarily read and reviewed the Advanced Reader Copy.
