Publisher Comments:

Gabe, Jace, and Ash: three of the wealthiest, most powerful men in the country. They’re accustomed to getting anything they want. Anything at all. For Gabe, it’s making one particular fantasy come true with a woman who was forbidden fruit. Now she’s ripe for the picking...

When Gabe Hamilton saw Mia Crestwell walk into the ballroom for his hotel’s grand opening, he knew he was going to hell for what he had planned. After all, Mia is his best friend’s little sister. Except she’s not so little anymore. And Gabe has waited a long time to act on his desires.

Gabe has starred in Mia’s fantasies more than once, ever since she was a teenager with a huge crush on her brother’s best friend. So what if Gabe’s fourteen years older? Mia knows he’s way out of her league, but her attraction has only grown stronger with time. She’s an adult now, and there’s no reason not to act on her most secret desires.

As Gabe pulls her into his provocative world, she realizes there’s a lot she doesn’t know about him or how exacting his demands can be. Their relationship is intense and obsessive, but as they cross the line from secret sexual odyssey to something deeper, their affair runs the risk of being exposed—and vulnerable to a betrayal far more intimate than either expected.

Synopsis:

A delicious twist on erotic romance, and the debut collection from a hot new author.

Three novellas. Two interlocking stories. One sizzling read.

Nice set up: one spirited woman in Kit Townsend, and two hot buddies, Ryder and Mac, who take turns giving Kit what she needs. It's the perfect no-strings triangle and while it doesn't exactly follow the rules, neither does Kit. But when love unexpectedly throws these three friends for a loop, can they still have a happy ending?

And then there's Mia Malone, a sweet Dallas girl who had big dreams for the future when she first met Texas Ranger Logan Kincaid. That fairy tale was a lifetime ago. Today, framed for drug possession, she's forced to work undercover at a strip joint where several working girls have disappeared. Then in walks Logan-her protector, savior, and lover.

Synopsis:

She has a killer on her tail and three men in her bed?

An author who knows how to please turns up the Heat in a sizzling new novel of erotic suspense?

Hutch, Cam, and Sawyer were juvenile delinquents when they formed a friendship with the wealthy but lonely Regina. She felt loved for the first time in her life?by all three. Today she?s a police officer and wary of resuming her relationship with the hot trio?until an attempt is made on her life. When they jump in to protect her, an all-new bond is formed, one riskier than ever before because now a killer looms in the shadows.

Mia Crestwell has had the biggest crush on her brother’s best friend since she was a teenager. It doesn’t matter to her that he is fourteen years older than she is. She knows he is completely out of her league but over the years her attraction has just gotten stronger. Now that she is an adult there is nothing to stop her from trying to act on her desires.

Gabe Hamilton takes one look at Mia when she walks into his hotel’s grand opening and knows he is going to go to hell for the ideas and plans going through his mind. Mia may be his best friend’s little sister but she is definitely all grown up now. Gabe is going to act on his desires since he was been waiting for a long time to do so.

As Mia moves more into Gabe’s world she finds out there is a lot more to him that she ever knew. As their secret relationship gets more intense and their emotions get deeper it puts them at risk of being exposed. It also makes them vulnerable to a betrayal more intimate than they expected. They will find out just now deep their feelings goes and if they are strong enough to survive.



This is a very hot book that is hard to put down once the reader starts it. The characters are interesting and as the story moves along the reader learns more about them and what motivates them. This one will take readers on an emotional roller coaster that will have readers reading just to see what will happen between Mia and Gabe and if they will be able to have the happy ever after that they deserve. This is the first book in a trilogy and will have readers wanting to read the next one just to see what happens with the two secondary characters that play a major role to this story line. This is another great book from this author and for readers that have not read her other books they will find themselves looking for more from this author.

I liked this story, like the character well enough to keep reading. But I had a few issues with this book.

I didn’t like the mousey little Mia in the beginning of the book, but by the end I did kinda like her. She finally grow up enough to stand up for what she wants.

Gabe while he might be dreamy, he was a bit of a......butt (to put it nice). Who the heck signs a contract to have a relationship? He is dominant, controlling and well a real pain in the butt. But in the end he learns, or will learn.

I will admit that I was a little nervous. When reviews or people refer to books with a 50 Shade of whatever compariance I normally will stay far away from that books. I am glad that I read and do plan on reading the next two books in this series.

I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. This review is my own opinion and not a paid review.
