★★★★ 1/2! A Million Guilty Pleasures, book 2 of 2. The conclusion of Noah Crawford, sex-god extraordinaire’s fall into whopped!

"What started out as a woman’s desperate attempt to save her dying mother had turned into a love story for the ages. Hollywood wasn’t likely to buy the rights to our story, and we would never find our names in lights, but we were a smash hit in our own world. And that was all that mattered."


The most beautiful love story begin with a bang and end quietly in their own happily ever after. This story is no exception. It might not be life-changing or eart...more

UGH Now I remember why I gave the first book only 3 stars!! And this one is even worse!! The story ran out of steam in the first few chapters! However I kept reading as I am a glutton for punishment!

Then I decided to stop as it wasn't getting any better!

Reading their banter and the constant use of the words 'the Wonder Peen' and 'Double Agent Coochie' was as sexy as this



Though not as funny!

Reading Delaine's thoughts was so painful, I

Sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry.....

I know, I know, I know...

I was a huge defender in this series but this book... it just... well, it kinda stunk.

My four biggest issues:

#1. Tried wayyyy too hard to quirky and funny
So many times the characters were just making bad jokes in times where you actually wanted story, but half-assed humor.

#2. The Cooch
Holy hell... If I had to read "the cooch", "the wonderppen", or something of the like, I will break my Kindle. Shit just got serious. It was soooooooooo annoy...more
Nathi *Shut it and let me read*
What a Beautiful and great ending for this duet!

Here we keep up exactly where the first book left off and see how the relationship between Laine and Noah develops.
We keep getting those super hot/sexy scenes and see how the relationship between them grows deeper.
We also get more interference of the secondary characters which was great!

C.L. Parker keeps up with the sharp writing and you just can't help but love the dialogues that are a mix of sarcastic/ironic/funny without been annoying (which a l...more

This is the conclusion to the Million Dollar Duet and picks up right where the first book left off. A little backstory on our hero & heroine.........
Noah Crawford has been burned in the love department before so he is now all about no strings attached sex. He therefore seeks out a virgin for sale in an underground human trafficking club where he purchases Delanie Talbot for two million dollars. With this price he gets his prized virgin for his sexual need...more

2.5 – Could Have Been So Much Better Stars.

I stuck with this duo of books as I really enjoyed the premise of the first book “A Million Dirty Secrets. The storyline was a little different, virgin selling herself to the highest bidder in order to try and save her ailing mother. A Millionaire with a bruised heart looking for sex without all of the entanglements for a couple of years, as you would expect feelings come into play and Noah in the end gives up Lainie so that she can be with her mother.

C.L Parker, you are a goddess and I humbly bow down to you!

In this book we are transported back to Noah and Delaine's love story. Were the second book left off on a cliffhanger, this one dives right back in and all the unanswered questions are revealed. Where as the first was Delaine's story this one is Noah's. However ultimately it is both of theirs ...

This is not a book that will have you searching your soul for a deeper meaning, no this is one extremely sexy, laugh out loud, hilariously spect...more

1.5 stars

I am not sure what happened here. I was a fan of book one, A Million Dirty Secrets, but for some reason the same combination just didn’t work for me this time. I found it to be very juvenile and honestly irritating. Sigh….

The story picks up right where it left off in book one so the reader has instant gratification. Not much angst as they reconcile immediately. The “story” they give Lane’s father is farfetched and unbelievable as well. It all just felt predictable and safe.

I really like...more

Noah Crawford or "Mr Wonder Peen" has paid for his Million Dollar Baby, Delaine Talbot..... Has he got more than he bargained for in his purchase?

The smart talking, dominant hottie certainly has met his match both in and out of the bedroom.

We are treated to a story filled with witty banter and super hot sexy stuff between the sheets and just about everywhere and anywhere you can imagine.

The sex is hot! It's not vanilla and most enjoyably is both romantic and erotic. There is some back door act...more
A Million Guilty Pleasures is book two of the Million Dollar Duet. Delaine Talbot is a young woman who gives up her virginity to the highest bidder in a very hush-hush auction. An auction where the rich can apparently buy anything. Her reasons for such an act are to save the life of her mother, who needs an expensive surgery and a new heart.

Noah Crawford is the CEO of Scarlet Lotus, a multi-million dollar business whose heart was broken by his fiancee and best friend. In order to prevent future...more

A Million Guilty Pleasures


•••••••• chicago ••••••••


••• Before you start to read this book you should read the first one - A Million Dirty Secrets - because book #2 starts off right where book #1 ends. •••

Noah just told Lanie to leave - that her mother needs her and that this thing between them would never work anyway. He didn't mean it of course, he just felt guilty for how he treated her. (after he bought her ☺)
...but then I did the unthinkable. I fell in love with her.

I wasn't a huge, huge fan of book one but it ended in a way that had given me high hopes that this series would grow a little with the second installment. But, this one just wasn't working for me at all... even less than the first one which disappointed me.
The whole "Wonder Peen" and "Double Agent Coochie" thing is just too juvenile for me. Just call it what it is... arrghhhh... I know that it was supposed to be funny. But, I wasn't laughing. So there ya' go!
There was way too much sex and not...more
4 stars!

I don't know how many times this series cracked me up...It was so damn funny!

I love the story, just the right amount of everything! There's too much love scenes though and I did skip some of them... Sometimes too much is too much...

This novel is great but...the reason why it's not as satisfying as the first book is because they don't fight anymore, no more drama between them and their relationship was smooth sailing..

The author should have thought of more drama, jealousy, ex lover, etc....more
The first book was interesting and fun but this one was a letdown. The writing was still great - sassy and sexy as ever - but it was shockingly SHORT! I just don't get it. Did I miss the memo that this was going to be a novella or something?

Thank you NetGalley for my ARC because I would have been totally pissed if I had waited (excitedly) for the release next year only to end up disappointed!

A BIG THANK YOU to Random House via NetGalley for PROVIDING ME WITH THIS ARC!!

Noah is just...AMAZING. I don't even know when or how exactly he slithered his way into my heart, but he's there and he ain't going anywhere. I was so excited to get to this read, and it was amazing. Seriously a wonderfully amazing book <3
If you haven't started this series - I suggest you start now!
You will not be disappointed - guaranteed :)

I just finished this last night after re reading the first. I have to always re read the first book to keep the story flowing while going in to the next book and I'm so glad I did. I actually went back and changed my rating from a four star to a five star on the first book.
What I loved about this story was the unexpected twists and turns and the characters were fantastic! I loved Polly and Dez and I think anyone would want friends like this in their lives. The sex was beyond hot and you definit...more
2½ -3 generous stars!

My thoughts: I normally will list the good and then the bad but for this book I am going to straight talk what I think about it.

So, without further ado…

I almost gave up on this book but decided that I’m not a quitter so I practically crawled to the finish line.

At first I couldn’t remember why I gave the first book a low rating, but after briefly revisiting it and going into “A Million Guilty Pleasures” I figured out why. To be honest, some of the terms and word use were re...more

A Million Guilty Pleasures is C.L. Parker's second installment in her Million Dollar Duet -duology. I loved the first installment A Million Dirty Secrets and was superexcited about the second book. The books are very much tied together and I strongly recommend you to read the first book before reading both this book and this review.

The first book left everyone with tons of questions about what would happen between Lanie and Noah. The second book starts right a...more

Not knowing that her mom is on her death bed and only has days to live and spend with her beautiful daughter, Delaine. His love for her is stronger than his greed and he is willing to sacrific...more

I love Noah Crawford, he is an ass (sometimes) but I do love him. Kudos to the author for writing a very heartfelt book. The story maybe predictable, but it didn't discouraged me, I read it and love it. The interaction between the H/h are always amazing,funny, and sometimes frustrating. Oh well!

I received this book as a E-Arc from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review. I can safely say that I loved this book and this whole series. I find the "wonder Peen" and "agent Cooch" to be a very funny and different way for a writer to describe a person's privates. Instead of the usual same old ways most writers do. This conclusion really kind of reminded me of the movie Pretty Woman which I totally love. Very smoking hot!! I will be recommending to those that like books that are more on the...more
An enjoyable book, with loveable characters.

If you haven't read this duet publication yet, you must! It is a personal favorite!

Note that A Million Dirty Secrets & A Million Guilty Pleasures (AKA, Million Dollar Baby) predates 50 Shades (AKA Master of the Universe) as a hot and steamy Twilight Fan Fict.

This original erotic romance story is a more fun sexual romp than any other erotic fan fiction including 50 Shades, Beautiful Bastard, Wallbanger, and other recent debut eroti...more

Loved this book. Noah and Lanie overcame everything that was thrown at them to come out stronger. The love for a loving mother will make a loving daughter do anything to save her no matter the cost to herself. There aren't many people who will make that sacrifice. And when Noah realized his mistake he fixed it. Most men would have run for the hills or continued to abuse the situation. But his love for Lanie made him do the right thing. Also loved Dez's strong character and friendship to Lanie. A...more

This was en enjoyable conclusion to the story that began with A Million Dirty Secrets, and while new readers may be able to pick up what happened in the first book through the recaps thrown into the narration, I really think one must read the first book prior to this one to get the full impact of the story. I thought that the author did a great job of mixing humor with seriously steamy scenes. I liked that the point of view/ narration alternated between Noah and Lanie. I thought the story line w...more

C. L. Parker is a romance author who writes stories that sizzle. She’s a small-town girl with big-city dreams and enough tenacity to see them come to fruition. Having been the outgoing sort for all her life—which translates to “she just wouldn’t shut the hell up”—it’s no wonder Parker eventually turned to writing as a way to let her voice, and those of the people living inside her head, be heard....more
