Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Craig (Divorced, Desperate and Deceived) turns her latest smalltown romance into a delightful comedy of errors. Hired by the mayor of Precious, Tex., to do a PR shoot that will draw visitors to the tiny town, photojournalist Shala Winters dodges burglars, would-be assassins, and vandals while tangling with sexy police chief Sky Gomez, who doesn't want her taking pictures of Native American rituals and turning Precious into a tourist trap. Sky doesn't believe in soul mates, though his foster father has prophetic dreams of Sky and Shala together. Shala, orphaned and divorced, is wary of men and furiously defensive of her independence. Many of Precious's standoffish, quirky, nosy residents are of Native American descent, but the culture feels like an afterthought; Craig stays focused on playfulness and sexual tension, and hits all the high notes en route to happily ever after.

From Booklist

When Mayor Johnson and the tribal council of the small town of Precious, Texas, calls on photojournalist Shala Winters to produce some positive publicity to increase their tourism, she packs up her $8,000 camera and heads straight there. Unfortunately, when she attends a Native American ceremony, her camera is confiscated by Sky Gomez, the most handsome of the dancers. Shala has to retrieve her camera, her livelihood depends on it, but Sky, who's also the sheriff, isn't the only one keeping it from her. It seems that Shala has taken a photograph of something she shouldn't have, and someone's willing to kill her to keep the picture from seeing the light of day. To top everything off, not everyone in Precious is onboard with the plan to increase tourism, and they're making sure Shala knows where they stand. Entertaining Craig shows that both love and danger can pop up when you least expect them, and her breezy style and spunky heroine won't fail to delight readers. --Shelley Mosley

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Shut Up and Kiss Me centers on the small town of Precious Texas - but for many of the characters in this largely Native American/Hispanic town - it was anything but "precious". This book started out hilarious and within the first 6 pages had me grinning from ear to ear like a mad fool at some of the antics the characters had to endure especially poor Jose, who was one of many memorable secondary characters. He seemed to be on the receiving end of the funny (or not) torture dished out by the author upon her poor unsuspecting characters. Rushing home to Precious after his father Redfoot sustains a nasty head injury, poor Jose had a car crash, fire ants making a picnic out of his family jewels and then being sprayed by a skunk and that wasn't even half of what he had to endure on his first night back in his not so precious home town (his character must have seriously pissed Craig off while she was writing this book LOL!). Hopefully Jose merits his own story in a future installment about the citizens of Precious because I can't wait to see what additional torture Craig cooks up for him.

Shala Winters just wanted to do the job she was hired to do by the Mayor of Precious; take pictures that showcase the town and prepare a marketing campaign to turn this little town into a Texas tourist attraction. She hasn't been in town a day when her very expensive Nikon camera gets confiscated at the local Indian Pow-Wow by a headdress-wearing, loincloth sporting, hard-bodied, oiled-up bare-chested Adonis who makes her girl parts tingle. So Shala may have broken the strict "NO Picture" policy by not handing over her camera (heeelllo? it's worth $8,000) before attending the ceremony, but she didn't take the flash picture she's been accused of taking.

Shala Winters was hired by the mayor of the small town of Precious, Texas to create and launch a PR campaign to draw some tourism to his struggling town, but there's no way she would've guessed that there was so little precious about Precious. Within the first twenty-four hours of being within the town's limits, Shala has had her lunch stolen and her leg amorously assaulted by a stray dog, her expensive camera stolen right out of her hands, been followed by a strange vehicle, had a whole town stonewall her, been accused of breaking the rules of a Native American ceremony, forced to dance disco in a disreputable establishment with a lecherous bar owner, pushed into a contentious disagreement with the sheriff of the town...who was the one who stole her camera and refused to give it back to her, almost assaulted by a man carrying a gun, cut her hand badly enough to need stitches, and was forced to go to a hospital, a place that had given her panic attacks since having watched her parents die in one when she was eight years old.

Shala is not having a good day.

Neither is the sheriff of the town, Sky Gomez. Everyone in town knows that his foster father had a spirit dream that pegged Shala as his soul mate even before she reached town, so Sky did what any dedicated bachelor who doesn't believe in love (let alone soul mates) would do (no matter how sexy Shala is). He avoided her like the plague. Sure, he followed her around town...no, not stalking...to keep an eye on her...that's really not stalking...because half the town was quite vocal about not wanting her there...so that definitely means it's not stalking! Then she gets eyeball to groin with him during a powwow and seems pretty enthusiastic about it with that camera of hers. That's against all sorts of his rules.

SHUT UP AND KISS ME carries on Christie Craig's marvelous sense of humor and astounding sense of pace. Her characters fall in love and trip over danger at a right good clip that keeps the reader engrossed. This time the town is aptly named Precious as it's precious enough to its residents for them to want to promote it by hiring Shala Winters to work up a publicity campaign. Little does she know she's set off a murderer intent on grabbing her camera because she's somehow taken an incriminating photo among the innocuous photos of Precious. Shala's life takes a turn for the worse when she runs afoul of the hot town sheriff Sky, who first snatches her camera because he believes she's broken a rule against photographing the tribe's sacred ceremony. While Shala and Sky dance around their attraction to each other, supporting characters are alternately interfering or causing comic mayhem of their own.

Really 3.5 stars. Not as good as some of the writer's other books, but a decent read nonetheless. The story arc for the H/h was acceptably hot and I cared about all the (many) secondary characters. But, in the end, there were too many characters and too many side storytelling diversions to make this an outstanding read. The jumping back and forth between characters' thoughts required too much work for this type of novel, and often the jumps seemed to happen just as the previous scene was about to get interesting. Sometimes the cut away worked, sometimes it felt abrupt, unexpected, and even annoying. Still, worth the Kindle price and the hours invested in reading because I did get interested in the leads and wanted to see their story play out to the HEA.
