Synopsis:

Cassandra Carlson is working on her five-year plan. A professional dancer, she moved to Los Angeles after college to work at her best friend’s Hollywood dance studio. She decides she can put up with the glitterati for the time being until she saves enough to open her own studio back home in Cincinnati.

When soon-to-be A-list British actor, Christopher Edwards, comes to her for dance lessons for his new film, the attraction is instantaneous and intense. Both are young, available and beautiful, but while she finds Hollywood garish and superficial, he’s on the brink of realizing his life’s ambition with no inclination for a serious relationship. Or so he thinks.

Just when their white-hot desire can no longer be denied, a jealous actress targets Cassandra in an insidious scheme, and a powerful studio head poses a formidable threat to them both. Cassandra puts herself in jeopardy in order to protect Christopher, but will she lose him in the process?

Review:

Closed Set was a little different then what I was expecting. I was thinking more along the lines of a sweet romance; dance teacher meets and falls in love with up and coming big time actor. However what I got was something a little different.

When I started the story it was ended in the direction of a sweet romance. Then things slowly start to heat up pretty quickly. Cassandra, our virgin dance teacher, seemed to really rush to the sex with Chris. She came across in some of the scenes as more experienced then she should have been.

Chris seemed nice enough, and then does wrong by Cassie not once, twice but three times. He clearly had some issues. Why she should stay with him is beyond me. But they did get a sort of happy ever after so that was nice.

I love romantic fiction. Any kind of romantic fiction, whether it be historical, contemporary, fantasy, erotic – you name it. What’s not to love about a swoon-worthy hero and a spunky heroine plagued by all sorts of conflicts keeping them apart, until it all works out and they live happily ever after? For the most part.My first book, Closed Set, was published in June 2014. I am currently working on my second book. It definitely has a very swoon-worthy hero and an unforgettable heroine. Stay tuned for more info!

Favorite Male Characters in Fiction Post by Julia Harlow

We all love a solid alpha male character. A man who is dominant without dominating. Who’s confident and controlled. Witty and intelligent. Passionate, driven, composed. He must be comfortable with himself. And of course tall and physically fit. Oh, and very successful and a good listener. This is fiction, after all.

So here are my top 10 favorite male characters. If you haven’t met them, you should!

1. Jamie Frazer – Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
2. Gideon Cross – Bared to You by Sylvia Day
3. Braden Carmichael – On Dublin Street by Samantha Young
4. Ted Beaudine – Call Me Irresistible by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
5. Cal Morrisey – Bet Me by Jennifer Crusie
6. Travis Maddox – Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire
7. Kenny Traveler – Lady Be Good by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
8. Phin Tucker – Welcome to Temptation by Jennifer Crusie
9. Gabriel Emerson – Gabriel’s Inferno by Sylvain Reynard
10. Christian Grey – Fifty Shades of Grey by E. L. James

Maybe this time around I might read a few more. Ha I can see that happening. Since I only read 2 on my summer list, maybe I might get to read 3 and I’ll be one up on my total. I will be bring some forward from my summer list, just to see if I will read them this time around.

So without further delay, below is a list of books I hope to read this autumn.
