A Little Bit
(A Mustang Prairie Romance)
by N.D. Jackson
After losing her birth parents and her adopted parents Alexis Mabry is used to being alone. So after a year of horrible dates with everyone from sugar baby wannabes to cross dressers, she decides to stop dating altogether and focus on what matters most: her business and her friends in Mustang Prairie.
When she meets a handsome stranger on a trip to California she starts to wonder if its time to get back in the game.
Baxter Thompsen spent the last decade building his empire to the exclusion of everything but sex. Now tired of
the socialites and starlets, he wants someone real. When he does she only wants a vacation fling and it’s up to Baxter to show her that lust is great, but love is the real prize.
Is it lust or are Baxter and Alex more than a little bit in love?
This is book 2 in the Mustang
Prairie series. Each book can be read as a stand alone but you’ll see many of the same characters throughout each story and meet new residents from one book to the next!
Before we go to far I really want to thank N. D. Jackson for such a KICK ASS heroine! Thank you!!
Phew, got that out of my system, so let’s get to crackin’.
A Little Bit in Love is a great showcase of a woman who is not only capable of taking care of her self, but determined to do so. Alexis doesn’t need a man – but deep down she wants one. So she suffers through horrible – yet hilarious dates – trying to find some sort of spark with someone. Taking a much needed break from business, Alexis goes to California to visit her friend Shelly and mmm, mmm, mmm, yumminess ensues.
Baxter is friends with Noel (Shelly’s fiance) and ends up being cast in the latest version of Shelly & Noel’s “Love Connection” with an introduction to Alexis. Ladies, Baxter is yummy, nom-able, holy hotness. No. Joke. He feels a connection with Alexis (as she does with him) and they agree to see what happens in the short time Alexis is in town.
At one point I was using my Jedi Mind Powers to try as make Alexis do what I wanted her to do. And guess what?! IT WORKED!! I did a happy dance 🙂
It was great to have two characters that you could really root for while you watched them come together, struggle with circumstance, and grow as a couple but also as individuals. The initial spark was amazing, too. You immediately love this couple and want them to make it, but when sh*t hits the fan, you get upset right along with the character. And don’t read into this. BOTH Baxter and Alexis do things that create conflict, I am not hating on my man Bax. And what fun is a romance novel without conflict? Not much. Not much at all.
On a side note, normally I do not discuss formatting. It’s an ARC, sh*t isn’t always perfect. But in this case I think it’s important. Even with some flaws in the formatting (which i was in the second version where fixed so don’t worry you book will be perfect!) I could not stop reading this book. That says a lot. It took me a few chapters to get the flow, but once I did I sucked this book down like it was nobody’s business.
So do the clickity-oneclick and grab A Little Bit In Love right now!

Hey I’m Natasha and I love stories. I love to read them, to watch them and most of all I love to write them. I find people endlessly fascinating and frustrating, which makes for the most interesting stories!I also love politics and true crime so in addition to writing romance, I also write political satire. It has been my dream to make a living as a writer since I was a kid and got lost in Judy Blume, The Babysitter’s Club and Sweet Valley High (is my age showing?!?!). When I’m not writing I can be found engaging in one-sided conversations with Rachel Maddow, singing very loudly very badly and trying out new cuisines from around the world.
I love to laugh, I gave my husband a sappy pet name and I think answers to most of life’s dilemma’s can be found in an episode of Dawson’s Creek.
My first series, Mustang Prairie, is small town romance because I feel they offer a variety of fun characters whose lives are interconnected. It is based loosely on my college town, which was the smallest town I’ve ever lived in…Go Panthers!
Currently I’m living in Germany so I can see Europe but by the time my next book comes out…who knows where I’ll be!!!!
