∞ It’s a Release Day Blitz – Reasonable Doubt 3 – Whitney G. ∞

Another book released today that everyone needs to get now! This is another series that I am utterly in love with and I can’t wait to find out how it ends because based on the two other books, it didn’t look like it was going to end well.


Reasonable Doubt 3 – [kindle edition] $2.99

I hate him…
I hate that I fell in love with him, I hate that he didn’t love me back, and I hate the fact that I just made a life-altering decision just so I could get the hell away from him.

He’d always said that he was unchangeable, heartless, and cold…

I really should’ve believed him…

☛ ☛ **NEW BOOK RELEASE TODAY: On the Record – K.A Linde** ☚ ☚

It’s a great day for new releases and I have another one for you.  This book is also part of a series.  The first book  Off the Record (The Record Series Book 1) – [kindle edition] $3.99 (also on Kindle Unlimited), came out what felt like an eternity ago (April 2014…really not that long ago).  I don’t even think that I had this review site up and running yet.  I do remember that I really liked the book.  A lot.  And I do remember that it ended on a cliff hanger, so I am beyond pleased that there is more story to tell and that it’s finally out to tell.

Read on for the synopsis of book 2 in the The Record Series: On the Record

On the Record (The Record Series Book 2) – [kindle edition] $3.99

For political reporter Liz Dougherty, election day—a day of looking toward the future and saying goodbye to the past—seems like a fitting time to start a new relationship. But feelings for her former flame still linger…

The sexy second book in USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde’s Record series decides whether it’s better to pick up the pieces and move on…or to pick up right where you left off.

 

 

 

I think it’s time for me to organize my reading list over at goodreads, because it I have a ton of books to get to.

☞ **Ella James is back with another Erotic Fairy Tale: Beast!!** ☜

I’m so excited about this series and now that it’s here I think that everyone should give book one a read.  The first book was utterly outstanding!  I didn’t think that I was going to like Richardo/Cal/Beast or whatever he is going by.  The fact of the matter is that he is so good at being bad.  The ante is definitely upped towards the end of part 1, so be patient if you’re wondering what the fuck is going on.  I’m hoping to get to book two within the next day or so and then we have to wait over a little under two weeks for the third installment.

Below are the links to the Amazon page where you can purchase the books.  Do yourself a favor and get them now! Book 3 is also available for pre-order. So do it!

Making Over Maris – Sabrina York ***Highly recommended read!!*** #BookReview #Review #ContempRomance

Making Over Maris: 3 (Wired) – [kindle edition] $5.78

Wired Series, Book Three

When über-nerd Jack asks Sara to make him more attractive to women, she
can’t say no–even though it’s an impossible task. He’s shaggy and doughy
and hopelessly inappropriate. He has no style or emotional intelligence
but he’s a good person. And a great friend. What Sara never expects?
Beneath all that fur and geekiness is a steamy hunk just waiting to
emerge.

Jack takes Sara’s regimen very seriously, working out and losing weight
until he feels like a new

man. He even complies with her command to shave his beard–because Jack
didn’t ask Sara to make him over so he would be attractive to other women.
He only wants to be attractive to her. They go on a series of fake dates,
each hotter and more sinful than the last. It’s not long before Sara
discovers Jack’s secret desire to be dominated and what began as an
arrangement becomes something amazing–something that could be real.

Inside Scoop: Our hero appreciates Femdom–with the right woman. Our hero
doesn’t appreciate perfect strangers grabbing his junk. Ask nicely first,
ladies!

This book was simply marvelous. I loved it from the first line to the last. I wish I could give it 10 stars, because I don’t think that I’ve enjoyed a book this much in quite a while. The story is funny and the dialogue between all of the characters is marvelous.

Oh boy! Oh, boy, oh boy, oh boy. I’d been holding on to this book on my Wish List on Amazon for quite sometime. I had a few hesitations about picking it up because of the price tag; $5.78 for a 200 page book. But, there was is a book challenge at stake, and I jumped at the chance to get it. Price tag be damned! I shouldn’t have held back. I should have gotten the book the first that I came across it, because this my friends is a marvelous story of a Geek and the love of his life. I don’t want to spoil this story for anyone because I think that everyone should read this story. If I could lend it to everyone I would. If I could have strategically highlighted every line on every page. I would. It’s that good. It’s page after page of entertaining humorous, affectionate, comical, love and romance.

I loved it from the first line to the last. The characters are absolutely hilarious. Sara who is coming off a bad “break-up” isn’t so jaded that she comes across as bitter, angry or insecure. She’s got gumption! She knows what she wants and she knows how to go about getting it.

If a guy was drop-dead gorgeous but didn’t have a romantic side, he was only good for a fuck

Generally in my reading I’m not drawn to FemDom, so I’ll be honest when I tell you that I didn’t even realize that she was a Domme until the words began to appear in the book. I guess I completely missed that part when I was reading the synopsis! It didn’t change anything for me. In fact, it was perfect. The way that she exudes her power over Jack. WOW! I could have read a lot more of that. Seriously, way, way more.

And Jack, dear sweet loveable Jack

“What the hell is that?” She gaped at the rumpled, well-worn paper.
“It’s my flowchart.”

Jack is quite easily one of my favorite book boyfriends. The only thing going against him for me and I must remember that he is not real, was that he was submissive. Had he been a Dom, I think I would have been even more immersed in the story, forever lost in a fictitious man. He’s adorable, beyond adorable. What’s beyond adorable? I don’t even know I don’t have the words, but whatever that word is, he is that.
It wasn’t even ridiculous for me to read this…

He came. Exploded. Erupted. Bliss cascaded as jet after jet of burning cum flooded from him. And all the while, she whipped his cock. Whipped it into a frenzy. It was fucking sublime.

…as I usually find it to be, because I could just imagine it. Jet after jet, sure! Why not?! Is there more? I’d welcome that too. Seriously, I’ve not ever been so enamored or engrossed. It could be that he was so oblivious to ever hint or clue that Sara threw his way. Or that it was almost like reading about a real guy (in many ways, dare I say, a little like my husband, GASP!). He was sublime and he made me want more. I need more. I know that there won’t be more, but one can always hope.

Jack and Sara’s is a story that I could read over and over again and probably enjoy it the more times that I read it. The story is simple the plot equally so and its simplicity is what makes it so enjoyable. There’s nothing overly complex happening here. They just each want what they want and you get to enjoy the ride as they get there. If you’re not rooting for these two page after page, I’m sorry there is something wrong with you.

Simply put, I would highly, highly and did I say highly recommend this book. It most definitely is a book that I would read again and again. This is, without a doubt a must read!

The book is the third in a three part series, but can be read as a standalone. I’m actually pretty glad it is part of a set, the other characters were just as entertaining as Sara and Jack. While I may not get to them immediately, they are on my Wish List and I can’t wait to squeeze in sometime to get around to them. Whenever that maybe.

Oh and my absolute final word on this book;  that book cover!  That book cover is what started it all.  Anyone know who the model is?

Embracing the Billionaire – Bec Linden #BookReview #LoveStory #Review


The Billionaire’s Embrace (The Silver Cross Club Book 2) – [kindle edition] $3.99
When Regan and Carter met, she was a cocktail waitress at the exclusive Silver Cross Club, and he was a wealthy client.

Now that they’re officially dating, Regan is having difficulty adjusting to their new roles. Carter is perfect in every way — maybe too perfect. Regan fears that he’ll never be able to understand her humble background.

When a family tragedy calls Regan home to California, her burgeoning relationship with Carter is thrown into crisis.

Confronted with the past she worked so hard to leave behind, Regan must decide between succumbing to her fears and moving forward into an unknown future…

Please note that this work is an erotic romance with explicit content and is intended for an adult audience.

**Spoilerish review**

I’m writing this particular note while half way through this story which so far has just pissed me the fuck off. First of all, as half pinoy, I am insulted. My mother is a Filipino and while I was raised in a mixed house hold, I know enough about the culture and its people to know that the bullshit mother, cousin and leading lady in this story really put a negative spin on a nation of some of the most amazing people in the entire world.

I was going to start off by editing out the top comment, but decided that I didn’t want to do that because it embraces completely how I was feeling about the book when I thought that I wouldn’t be able to finish it. But, I was able to finish it and I’m ready to give you my thoughts.

First thought, I stored 40 quotes half of which I left notes on. This is based on me going back and looking at my stored quotes on the Kindle Amazon site. Wonderful feature by the way. Quotes are usually handy when I’m trying to remember what I think are relevant and important aspects to a story that I want to share. With this book though, I was just getting so annoyed and frustrated with Reagan Cabatu that I just wanted to vent about her. So here goes.

Let’s back up just a little bit here first, book one Serving the Billionaire had the makings of being a sweet romantic story of two people finding each other, albeit in a fairly unique manner and developing and nurturing that love. Book 2 was, I thought, going to expand upon that. It didn’t. I give you no illusions, this book is down-right depressing roughly 65% of the time. That seems high right? I’m basing that % on where I was located in the book. What bothered me most that this girl, was her overwhelming negative outlook on everything.

I knew the job wouldn’t last—I would mess up eventually, and get fired, or they would go out of business, or the building would burn down in a fire…

And this continues throughout most of the first half of the book.

Dreams were dangerous. They gave you big ideas; they made you think that your life could be bigger, more meaningful, than was actually possible. I had spent my entire life deliberately tamping down my dreams, like useless soil underfoot.

I didn’t know how much I could take of her. She was so fucking depressing. She had not one ray of sunshine in her life. The man that she clearly cared about a great deal wasn’t enough to bring her out of her funk. I didn’t even know why I was bothering or why she was. It seem like she could ever come out of it.
I was completely put off by some of the sequence of events. She has a trip back home at one point and while it’s supposed to be significant, it further proved that she had no idea of who she was. She even has this weird encounter with an ex and it just left me feeling awkward and annoyed.

We were fooling ourselves, of course. Too much time had passed. We had lost our old intimacy, and would never get it back. But it was nice to pretend for a while

By this point, I was ready to leave Reagan in the dust. Fuck it. But then we get to hear from Carter.

Initially Carter’s story doesn’t start out any better, but with an encounter with Sadie, Reagan’s best friend, the tide finally turns and the story shifts from bleak sadness to, a more uplifting love story. Like I thought we were initially going to be reading.

One of my favorite things about Carter is the pet names he has for Reagan. He would be what I imagine a Daddy dom to be like. He calls Reagan his Little Girl and for the first time it didn’t feel creepy or weird. His endearment towards her was heartfelt and genuine. This whole book should have been his story. I rooted for him so much. I just wanted him to be so happy and it felt like the author wanted it for him too

I wanted to go outside and call her, listen to her voice on the other end of the line, and tell her that I loved her and never wanted to be apart.

He was also charming and funny, which just endears you to him more.

“Nice place,” she said, looking around as I led her into the living room. “Not as over-the-top as I expected.” “What did you have in mind?” I asked. “Oil paintings of myself all over the wall? Gold-plated marble statues of nude women?”

“You just don’t understand the struggle of the white man,” I told her

I would love to hear more about Carter (and Reagan). I wish the story had been told differently. I had never anticipated such negativity from Reagan so it was disarming and disappointing. This could have been a 4.5 story. Instead it gets an iffy 3.5. If you can get past a severely depressed woman, then you’re golden. Read it and relish in its simplicity. If you can’t, well, then pass on this. Or skip to Carters story, though for $1.99, well that I’ll leave you to ponder.

Serving The Billionaire – Bec Linder (series) #BookReview #Review


Serving the Billionaire (The Silver Cross Club Book 1) – $0.00/FREE
Regan takes the job because she’s desperate. She just got fired, she’s down to her last hundred bucks, and she hasn’t spoken to her parents in years. She’s out of options, and serving drinks at an upscale gentlemen’s club sounds easy enough.

At the Silver Cross Club, she’s exposed to a world of wealth and hedonism that she’s never experienced. And the clients tip well — so well that she’s willing to ignore the debauchery that goes on in the back rooms.

Then she meets billionaire Carter Sutton.

Scion of a powerful family, and a regular client at the club, he’s rich, handsome, and incredibly charismatic. Regan finds herself being drawn into his orbit.

But their undeniable chemistry can’t prepare Regan for Carter’s sexual desires. He’s used to getting what he wants, and Regan has only two options: resist, or surrender completely…

This 38,000-word novella is an erotic romance with explicit content and is intended for an adult audience.

 

Aah, billionaire romances and they’re Pretty Woman premises, how I miss you so much!

Yeah, so this isn’t quite Pretty Woman, but the concept is pretty much the same.  Down on her luck girl, while not a prostitute, gets a job at a high-end gentleman’s club and ends up meeting a billionaire, who would like nothing more to change her entire world.

This is such a simple story and that’s one of the reasons that I like it so much.  It’s not trying particularly hard, it’s just upbeat, miracles can happen type storytelling.  So far no great tragedies, some tasteful humiliation and a sex scene, that has the chance to lead to so much more in book 2.   The characters are both likable.  Reagan is submissive and sassy.  It’s a great combination, there’s nothing more boring for me than a woman who just complies.  Reagan is written as a woman who expects more of herself all the while learning and accepting things of herself that she never knew until she meets Carter

I enjoyed reading about the attraction that these characters have towards each other

I had the impression, walking toward him, that he was reeling me in like a fish on a line, drawing me toward him with the force of his blue gaze.

and I like that it remains throughout the entire book.  There are times when male characters in stories like this, where they are just unapologetic assholes.  While it’s okay sometimes, it’s refreshing when an asshole admits that he’s wrong and wants to be a better version of himself for the woman he is drawn to.   Carter does that so well in this story and I can not wait to see what else he is going to do for Reagan in the next book.

One of the major themes of the relationship that I am enjoying a great deal with these two is the humiliation aspect of there sexual escapades.

I liked the implicit humiliation of the situation: him cool and in control, sitting down, fully dressed; and me exposed, subservient, taking off my clothes for a man I knew almost nothing about.

In really simple terms, it’s pretty fucking hot when Carter pushes Reagan to do things.  I’m hoping beyond hope that there is more of that in the next book.  Humiliation in a story as a whole is something I enjoy.  There is just something so incredibly naughty about debasing yourself willingly to someone.  And to have power and control taken away trusting in that other person.  Well, I just can’t get enough of it.   I’ve read books in the past where you feel uncomfortable for the female character as she is subjected to the debauched needs of her partner, but here,  I couldn’t have cheered Carter on more.  I wouldn’t have minded if someone walked in on them as they where in flagrante.

You may be wondering why I gave it such an average rating then, well here it is.  It needs to be re-edited and while it may be harsh of me to give it an average rating because of something like that, the simple thing is, this book would be a lot better if it had been edited better.  Some scenes lose their potency for me because I read it as I see it and then I have to re-read as it’s intended.  If I didn’t have to do that, well this would probably have gotten a solid 4.    That said, while I debated spending the $4 on the next book, I’m just going to do it.  I really like Carter and I need more…

——————————-

 

Grace Street (Chapter 8, #1)

Warning: This is neither a conventional romance nor a traditional love story. There are no hearts and flowers on the pages of this book. The heroine doesn’t always make wise choices and though I’ve tried to make her strong, she’s often times weak in the face of the fierce hero. The hero is not a knight in a shining armor. He’s broken and frequently cruel, and what every woman in the real world should avoid. What’s contained in this book isn’t real – it’s fiction; dark, depraved and decadent make-believe. Contains detailed sexual encounters, profanity, uncomfortable situation, and erotic elements including voyeurism, oral and anal. INTENDED FOR READERS 18+.

Obsession, possession, resilience, insanity…

Seeking solitude and reprieve from her past failed relationships, Elsa begins her life anew in Richmond, hoping to find the change that she so desperately needs. Things are looking up for her, a new job, new friends… a fresh start.

But Victor has different plans for her. From the moment he heard her voice and set his eyes on Elsa, she became next on his to-do list; his Chapter 8. A well-known and respected criminal profiler, his mind is as dark as the people he hunts down. It takes one to know one, after all. Under the guise of making his subjects stronger, he intends to break Elsa down using everything in his arsenal, including pleasure, pain, humiliation, and things unspeakable. Everyone is fair game in his book and he discriminates against no one when he chooses his test subjects.

Lonely, still on the mend from a bad break-up and longing for sexual attention, Elsa consents to an odd proposition, unaware of Victor’s plans. However, she can’t be broken so easily and what he puts her through only fuels the fire burning within her, a flame that begins to blaze out of control as she becomes obsessed with everything about Victor and peeling back his cruel layers in search of the real man hiding beneath his heartless facade.

In Victor’s world, there is no such thing as happily ever after and Chapter 8 proves to be an infuriating challenger when she flips the tables on his selfish and twisted game, a game they both may end up losing their hearts and minds over.

 

I’ve been thoroughly impressed with all of her books so far and I just know that she has more amazing things to come.  Everyone should give her a shot, she is a really gifted writer!

Red & Wolfe: (Erotic Retelling) Part 4 – Ella James


Red & Wolfe Part 4: An Erotic Fairy Tale – [kindle edition] $2.99

Return to Rabbit Island for the heart-pounding conclusion to Red and Wolfe’s story.

Don’t forget your extra panties – but this time, you might also want to bring your gun.

 

 

 

 

*Contains spoiler-ish type detail*

Okay, first of all, best $3 I’ve spent. I mean it!

Secondly; I love James Wolfe, I wish he was real. I wish I was Red and I was stuck on Rabbit Island, doing what rabbit’s do. This was such a good ending to the series. I was a little nervous about how it was going to end, but I was far from disappointed.

So let’s start here, I am strong advocate of a filthy mouthed alpha male character, James Wolfe aka Race embodies that to the core. Every time he said anything to Red, I was having a panty melting moment. He is up there as my number one (okay top 3) book boyfriends.

She has the nerve to look up at me impertinently, the naughty little cunt.

I know a lot of people aren’t fond of the “C” word, but I personally find it rather fabulous. It just sounds so naughty, taboo almost and every time he thought it or said it I would get so giddy, excited even, because everything about his character is exactly that. James Wolfe is deliciously dark, if we ended up knowing nothing about him, I think that I would have been okay with that. I didn’t need to know everything about him, other than he was hungry and desperate for Red.

You’re asking for a thorough fucking, Red. My cock, your pussy. Now

And speaking of Red, have I told you how much I enjoy her? She’s still spunky as ever in book 4. And while the whole owning her submissiveness was still up in the air for me even through the end, I’m just going to believe that she knew that, that was what Wolfe needed from her. I loved that Red had the spunky confidence to go up against Wolfe (sexually). She always challenged him, which I really liked. She wasn’t about to let someone she cared about so deeply just not take notice

I want you, Race. I have no idea why. Maybe I’m crazy. But when I think of leaving right now, I feel like I’d never stop looking back. So you want to fuck me?” I step toward the bedroom and curl my finger at him. “Come fuck me”.

One of the hardest things I struggle with when I read short stories like these is that, well, they’re short. Especially when you’re bringing together characters that you’re getting in this story. It feels like it’s a hard thing to balance the romance with the heat, but Ella James does a really fine job, in this last book. I worried that there would be heat than affection, but it’s the small moments that she throws in that makes it a really sweet love story of sorts

I reach Gertrude’s office last, and there he is—sitting in her rickety old desk chair, sleeping with my picture in his hand, as if he’s waiting just for me

I loved that there was a HEA, one that was believable too, considering the entire story as a whole. Ella has another fairy re-telling coming out sometime in August (Beast) and I am really looking forward to that.

I definitely recommend this story if you like face paced dirty reads it’s worth every penny in my opinion.

Naughty Bits – Books 1-4 – Joey W. Hill #BookReview #Review #potentialspoilers

This review spans all four books since I think that it’s best to review it all at once, rather than book by book. , so there may be spoilers

Naughty Bits Part I: The Lingerie Shop – [kindle edition] $2.99

When finance executive Madison inherits a lingerie shop called Naughty Bits, she decides to leave behind her staid career and explore her every forbidden desire… Madison is a control freak with one wish—to lose control. Her hidden submissive cravings have led to a string of disastrous relationships. So when she inherits her sister’s North Carolina lingerie shop, Naughty Bits, she jumps at the opportunity to dump her boring finance career and bad history and try her luck down South. But before Madison can settle in, she catches the attention of the owner of the neighboring hardware store. Sexually dominant Logan Scott can see the hunger for command in Madison’s eyes and is anxious to help unleash her submissive desires. He presents her with three very tempting gifts—handcuffs, erotic cards, and an open invitation to join him at a submissive’s training session. Faced with the realization that she can’t sell fantasies to her lingerie customers without embracing her own, Madison accepts Logan’s offer. Now, she’s about to discover just how far her desire can take her…

Naughty Bits Part II: The Training Session – [kindle edition] $2.99

But when her fantasy brings her face-to-face with her true feelings for Logan, she’ll have to figure out if she’s ready to trust her heart as well as her body to him forever…

I don’t know what I was expecting when I started reading this. I really thought that it would be a mild introductory BDSM novel. It’s not. Actually it’s not even close. This is what I’ve imagined a good BDSM novel should be about with romance at the forefront. Two people needing each other, not just because they are broken, but because they really do need each other in the simplest and purest form.

We start with a woman who comes to take over her sisters lingerie (and so much more) shop.   Madison, is not unlike many other women, career driven, focused on herself and not really sure of what or who she is.   Her sister who is no longer around was the opposite; knew what she was, who she was and always trying to help her baby sister find herself.  Throughout the story she’s a constant voice to Madison, not literally, though.  Alice, Madison’s sister is a critical piece throughout. I loved hearing about her and learning about the relationship that they shared and there were moments when JW Hill would allow you a small glimpse into their relationship, allowing you to feel that connection that they had.  I would at times be upset that we would never get to learn more about Alice, but understanding at the sometime that we’ve learned all we need to. Understanding that what’s important is how she brings the two main characters people together.

Madison is really well developed throughout the series and I was happy that she wasn’t ever stuck. She evolved, had her own sense of self in a reasonable amount of time as the story carried on.  She was a woman trying to find her own path after spending so long trying to walk away from it. It was really wonderful seeing her own every aspect of herself.  It never felt as though she was giving up a part of herself, rather she was gifting it to someone who was deserving of.

Logan, I don’t even know what to say about Logan. He was utterly wonderful. He’s not your conventional leading male. In fact outside of his role as a Dom no matter how handsome he was described to be, I felt like he was plain, that slightly boring looking guy next door that you don’t really look at, until you look at him. I don’t even mean that in a bad way, I mean it in the best of ways. I vision him to be strong, rugged and manly, not overly handsome, but it was never about how he looked but rather the power and confidence that he exuded. Logan is what I imagine a true dominant to be like. He always, always put Madison first, even when it didn’t seem like he was doing so. My favorite part of him was that, he was like a conductor, he knew every way to get the best out of her, knew when to push her, knew when to make her think differently even when he saw her pulling back. I know that I’ve read books before and gushed about how wonderful a guy is, but Logan? He felt real. He wasn’t perfect, but his confidence? That confidence that a true Dom has. The one that pulls in a submissive like a magnet, that was where Logan was perfect.  He also said the most wonderful things to Madison, in the most normal of ways.  They weren’t over the top lush lines, they we’re poetic truths.

I don’t know about those shit-for-brains men you’ve been with, Madison, and I wish I could have spared you the pain they caused you, but I won’t regret a minute of it if it brought you to me as the person you are

There are only a couple of other characters in this story, ones that are important to the story; Troy, a whole lot of fun and in the same boat as Madison, though for completely different reasons and his partner Shale.

This is one of those series that sings, each line, each sequence, building and coordinating to a beautiful finish. I’m so sad that this I’ve wrapped it up, but in a way glad, because yes there could be more, but sometimes you have to end on that high. This accomplished it and so much more. I’ll definitely be on the prowl for more Joey W. Hill books, because if this is an indication of her writing, she certainly has a fan in me!

Call Series Boxset – Emma Hart #Sale #99¢

Every morning I get emails about books on sale. I’m at a point, where I am getting about 5 various emails, from different vendors. I look forward to them each day, a little ray of sunshine, I like to think of them as. This morning I was notified of the following series on sale for only 99¢!  I was ready to jump in and buy it when I realized that I might already have them all, except for one of the books (His Call). It’s a good thing, I checked, because that is in fact accurate. While, there is no value in me picking up this great deal, it doesn’t mean that you should miss it.


Call Series Boxset – [Kindle Edition] 99¢

Length: 631 pages (estimated)

A limited-time boxset edition of the highly-addictive and sexy CALL SERIES, including a brand new bonus novella, HIS CALL, only available digitally in this box set. Also includes the prologue and first three chapters of WILD TEMPTATION, the first in an even sexier spin-off series.

LATE CALL:
 She’s a high class call girl. He’s taking over his father’s business.
Seven years ago, they fell in love in Paris.
They walked away at the end of the summer, never imagining they’d meet again.
Now he’s her client.

We fell in love the way you jump from a cliff. Hard and fast with a reckless sense of abandon. The six weeks we spent together changed my life, but at seventeen, I was naive. I was a dreamer. A believer.
 Now I’m twenty-four and cynical. I don’t believe in love. There’s no place for such emotions as a high class escort. The only things I’m allowed to feel are physical – and that’s why it’s so damn hard when the client of a last minute job turns out to be the man I left in France seven years ago. When he buys me for six weeks at triple my rate, my agent makes it clear I have no choice but to take the job despite our previous relationship. And my heart makes it very clear I have to stay firmly on top of the cliff this time.
Because for six weeks, I once again belong to Aaron Stone.

FINAL CALL:

We crashed and burned like a falling plane. Hard and fast with an inevitable explosion. Another few weeks together changed my life the way the first did. At twenty-four, I became naïve again. I became a dreamer again. A believer. And walking away hurts just as much as it did seven years ago.

But over doesn’t have to mean over-at least in Aaron Stone’s mind. His pursuit is relentless, his determination unwavering. He’ll go to any lengths to keep me and prove that I belong to him. Unfortunately, love isn’t easy, and whether or not I forgive him is irrelevant to his past catching up with us. Once again, our relationship is haunted by a secret, one that could destroy everything, and the secret is born from the need to protect the other…

But the tables have turned, because the secret is mine.

HIS CALL:

20,000 words. Ten scenes. Seven you thought you knew. Three you never did…

In this CALL series novella, get inside Aaron Stone’s head for the very first time. Experience some of your favorite scenes from both Late Call and Final Call, and enjoy three new bonus scenes.
