I have to say I feel quite lucky to have gotten to read all 5 of these novellas back-to-back, because this is one of those series where you need to have them all lined up and ready to go!  Derek and Frankie’s story is full of crazy hot sexual tension, deception, secrets, and twists that keep you guessing and questioning at every turn, and it is a sure crowd-pleaser!

Frankie was a successful real estate agent, following in her father’s footsteps and ready to take on any challenge.  So when a huge potential client dropped in her lap, it was up to her to wow him and snag his new development property for her to fill with tenants.  Derek Block was an unexpected complication, because while he may have been a rugged and unpolished businessman, he was also an expert at both his work and women.  And the last thing Derek needed was the distraction of a relationship, but Frankie got under his skin like no other and he was powerless to resist her. 

Derek was hell-bent on revenge for his father, and with the help of his sister they were close to finally having their day.  Frankie came into his life at the worst possible time, but he also thought one night with her was all he needed to get her out of his system.  I know, crazy right?! One night with Frankie just left both of them wanting much more, and it led to probles for her career and his ultimate goal of revenge.  They had great intensity right from the start, and I loved the tension that they had as they tried to navigate through the challenges they faced. 

Each of these five episodes had their own elements of drama, steaminess, and unexpected revelations that made not getting straight to the next one virtually impossible!  The more that was revealed about Derek’s plans and the more Frankie’s past came back to haunt her, it was clear not everything was as it seemed on the surface.  I’m not about to ruin the twists for anyone else, but I will say it was an exciting read right up to the finish and gets two thumbs up from me!!


If this lobby was a woman’s body, he was taking his time with her, caressing her neck, kissing down her navel, licking between her legs.  He was making sure she was completely satisfied.  I envied the residents who would eventually get to live here. ~ Loc 225

Control…I had obviously lost that, though I didn’t understand why.  Polished men were all I knew, all I had ever been attracted to: groomed and well-dressed, pretty and sharp—even cocky and somewhat selfish.  They were certainly never burly or animalistic like Derek.  So why was he having this kind of physical effect on me? ~Loc 260

I didn’t recognize the voice that came out of me.  It was raspy, demanding, thick with desire and need.  This was what Derek did to me: he got me to beg, even when begging was so out of character; he made me want more of him, even when I didn’t think my body could take it. ~Loc 3070
