Hawthorne wipes away my tears with his fingers. “We care for you, Lindsay. All of us. You need to understand that. Let us give you the happy ending you deserve.” He smiles. “Because you’re our happy ending, too. We need you as much as you need us. Maybe even more.”

Review

I can’t believe that this is the last book in the series. I so want more. But what a way to end it. I think I was was on the edge of my seat most of the time just waiting for something bad to happen. You can just sense that the worst is going to happen. And then when it did happen and I started the next chapter, I was like ‘nooooooo’. I think I cried a little. I’m too emotionally invested in this series I think. In a good way that is.

Lindsay’s relationship with Slade, Romeo and Hawthorne takes a very real turn in this book. It was very interesting to read. Everybody has really grown on me and I think Hawthorne may just be way favourite. He may have been a bit of a dick at the start of the series, but he really does put 110% in when he wants to.

Loved the ending; it was really well done by the author.

To shamelessly desire something is to expose oneself to the possibility of denial and heartbreak.

Review

Yes! The secrets just keep on coming. And they don’t disappoint at all. It this installment we finally get to discover the big secret that Lindsay has been keeping to herself, the trump card so to speak. So didn’t think it was that, but it makes sense why she was keeping it to herself. Now that her bosses know there willing to do anything to protect her. These gentlemen are really starting to grow on me.

Lindsay is finally back at work and going through each of her lessons with her bosses. I will never look at a wooden ruler the same after reading this.

We also learn more about Slade, Romeo and Hawthorne’s past relationship and how each of them are dealing with the loss in their own ways. I’m really feeling for them. They went through something that was really hard but have managed to pull through to the other side together. How? I will never know.

But that ending! It really threw me and now I must find out what happens next.

Synopsis

Lindsay has never been so alone in her life.

After a private investigator exposes her, she’s on the run once more. Her bottomless bag of tricks is empty, and she’s filling it to the brim with regrets and mistakes.

As danger builds, Lindsay can’t stop thinking about her dominant bosses. Maybe Romeo, Hawthorne, and Slade could save her.

Maybe… if they could find her.

Being submissive doesn’t mean being a doormat. It doesn’t mean you’re lazy in bed or that you have low self-esteem

Review

Just when I thought I had it all figured out with Lindsay’s past, the author goes and throws more secrets and mysteries into the plot. I can’t take it anymore, yet I keep coming back for more. It is just that good.

Lindsay has finally returned to her home town, yet it doesn’t feel like home to her because she left ‘home’ behind in the form of her three sexy bosses. However she thinks that they were only using her because they haven’t tried to find her and make contact with her. One mistake on Lindsay’s part soon leads to Slade, Romeo and Hawthorne turning up to her hotel room and demanding answers. Ya finally we get some more of the truth. It seems I’ve been waiting forever for this. But it was worth the wait.

So glad that the guys demanded Lindsay except their help, but in doing so she has to earn their trust. This is going to be one of the hardest things she has even had to do in her life so far.

The secrets that each of the bosses reveal at the end to gain her trust. Didn’t see that coming at all.

And let’s not forget the sex. Still as hot as ever.

However I still want to know what she’s keeping deep down for everyone and what the 3 gentlemen have on her grandfather. Everyone still seems to have one last card up their sleeve that they don’t want to play just yet. So annoying.

Synopsis

Working for Romeo, Hawthorne, and Slade is a challenge, but the dominant men give Lindsay exactly what she needs. Even though Hawthorne continues to drive her insane, she’s happy with her new life.

But when a stranger with a gun steps out of the shadows, Lindsay realizes that happy is dangerous.

Happy will get her killed.

A woman with Lindsay’s past doesn’t have the luxury of waiting for a knight on a white horse. She’ll have to settle for an arrogant, condescending billionaire… one whose goal has always been to get rid of her.

Desperate women don’t get easy choices.

The truth is that I was falling for them. For Slade, yeah. That was obvious even to me. And for Romeo. How could I not? Even Hawthorne was growing on me. Under different circumstances, if we hadn’t gotten off to such an awful start…

Review

Now this is what I’m talking about. The mystery and suspense is really starting to add up and I’m getting hooked with every book of this series that I read. It’s an addiction.

Lindsay’s past has finally started to catch up with her, now that she is enjoying life and working for her new bosses. Life seems to be finally going good and then something happens one night late at the office and suddenly she wants to run again. However she seems to be in two minds about. Lindsay really wants to tell her bosses about her past because they could help her, but doesn’t want to trouble them. I really wish she would tell them, because then I would know her secret too.

And let’s not forgot the hot bosses. Each one of them is slowly starting to grow on me and each for different reasons. While together they all have some VERY HOT office sex, the more time Lindsay spends with Slade, Romeo and Hawthorne individually, the more their character personal traits are revealed. Hawthorne is really starting to come through and want he does in this book is a real eye-opener.

So glad I have the next book ready to go.

Synopsis

The skills that keep Lindsay alive are turning into liabilities. She needs to keep covering her tracks, which leads to lying to her bosses in order to hide her true identity.

Hawthorne, Romeo and Slade are powerful men who have zero tolerance for what they perceive as disrespect. They spell it out clearly: no more lies. As much as Lindsay wants to walk away, she knows the three men give her something no one else can.

When someone from her previous life recognizes her, her bosses demand to know who she really is and what she’s running from.
Is a half-truth a truth? Or is it just another lie?

Review

The mystery of Cleo’s past is really starting to get very interesting. A little more of it was revealed in this story but still not enough to really understand what drives her. I’m intrigued to find out more.

Hawthorne, Romeo and Slade are really starting to show more of their characterful traits. While they appeared to act as one single minded group in the first book, they are slowly starting to show individual traits. I’m liking this even more. I would like to know more about their past too. This seems like a very interesting story.

The ending was so cute and so unexpected from Hawthorne. I like surprises.

Synopsis

To stay alive, Lindsay has always relied on her looks and her wits. It’s not always enough, and underneath her carefully polished exterior is a desperate woman who will do anything to survive.

When she’s called to account for her misuse of the company credit card, she hopes to flirt her way out of trouble. Instead she finds herself faced with a gorgeous stranger who is immune to her manipulation, and she’s shocked by the punishment he deals out.
No one in the office can tell her who the stranger is, and when she encounters him again weeks later, things take another unexpected turn… times three. Three handsome, rich businessmen. In their arms, she almost feels safe.

But she knows the truth: safe is an illusion, and staying alive is all that matters.

This BDSM romance contains explicit sexual content and graphic language that may be objectionable to some readers. Includes sexual dominance and submission, spanking, multiple partner, menage, and many other delights. For adults only.

He turns around to stare at the bookcase behind him, and I see proof that he’s got excellent thrusting potential. His ass is drool-worthy. Firm.

Review

I have never read anything by thing author before, yet I have downloaded a few free books of hers so I thought I would give one of them a try.

While at the start I was a little unsure about this story and where it would end up going (it’s 6 books long, so there has to be some plot right?), it did start to pick up towards the middle of the book. From there I just couldn’t put it down.

Yes some of the sex scenes are a little confronting but knowing this was an erotic office romance going into this I was expecting something. But what I got was something a little different and for that I’m unsure if it was helping the story line or not.

The men are all strong ‘manly’ business men and know what they want and go after it. While are main character Lindsay comes across as strong but shes’ hiding a secret of some sort. And I would like to find out what it is. So I guess I’ll be reading the rest of the books to find out this hidden mystery.
