Cute little short.

Yvette is suffering from depression after her prominent attorney husband, divorces him. She meets Ryan, a hot twenty-five-year-old dominant, who wants her more than anything. And she is hesitant?

Advice to Yvette, young, hot man who wants to rock your world, shows up by your side, you let him in. Thankfully she did.

I really enjoyed this one. This book was a real page turner and I couldn't put it down. This is my first read, were the female is older than the male. And let me tell you, there was nothing young about, Mr. Ryan Knightbridge....

- Mr. Ryan Knightbridge: (25) - Hot damn! He just drips sexy confident alpha dominance (with a side of sweet gentleman) *Sigh* He has had his eye on, Yvette, ever since the black and white masquerade ball. And now that she is single, he is going to make her his!

Great hot little read 3.5 stars.

Yvette Sava is at the end of a terrible year, her divorce was high profile and she's taken to hiding herself away but then a slip on the ice lands her in the arms of Ryan Knightsbridge. A strong powerful dom who recognises a submissive when he sees one, but this isn't the first meeting of these two and this time Ryan isn't taking no for an answer.

I let this book stay on my to-read list for far too long. So I finally read it and I'm glad I did. Why did I wait so long? Silly me, I thought a freebie wouldn't hold my interest and it is a relatively short book so how good could it be? Well, I have to say that I shouldn't have waited so long and I wholeheartedly agree with the book's high ratings. For me it was between 4-5 stars.

The book is short, but it is not short on quality or sexual heat. It is about an older woman (not that old!) and you

** I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.**

I loved Yvette's story. 'Holiday Ties' is another great read by the talented Miss Elizabeth SaFleur. I immediately liked Yvette from the moment she was introduced in 'Lovely'. Ryan is young, but wise beyond his years when it comes to Yvette and being a Dom. I loved the hot and steamy scenes. I liked how he brought out a different side to the ever sophisticated sub. I can't wait to read more in this series. A great add to

Holiday Ties is an extremely hot, very enjoyable erotic romance novella with BDSM themes. What sets this one apart from many dominant/submissive stories -- besides great writing -- is that the dominant in this case is younger than his would be submissive. It creates an interesting dynamic and a different type of conflict for the characters.

Yvette Sava is trying to pull her life together after a messy and scandalous divorce. She's determined to suppress her submissive nature, so she's never a doo

It's been a year since Yvette's divorce and she hasn't been living. She has withdrawn into her shell. A chance encounter with a younger man she had met at a party in the midst of her divorce. She finds herself drawn out of her shell by the handsome man's attention and though her fears want to hold her back, she finds herself letting this dominating man take her in hand.

She promises to give him a weekend, surrendering to all his desires. Ryan delights in her submissiveness, she is everything he w

This was a great Sunday morning treat for me to read. 3/4 Stars, but probably would have been more if it was a full length story.

There's a great story building here and it was a great way to get you hooked. I know I will be putting Lovely on my TBR list for January.

Yvette is an intriguing character to me. I have lots of questions about her past, her marriage and what she was doing at the party where Ryan first propositioned her? And what about Ryan... So confident and sure, yet so young!! It cer

This is a new author that I've come across and the 2nd novella of hers that I've read. It was a sweet love story with all the allure and excitement of the terribly hot alpha male going after what he wants and not taking no for an answer. The lengths Ryan goes to in showing Yvette that they are right together melts your heart. Winter wonderlands and snowball fights do it to me every time. The best part -- it's free right now and will lead you on to her other works - Lovely and Untouchable. So ...more

Yvette is a divorced socialite.Her entire life is built about what others think about her. Ironically she judges Ryan. Who is twenty-five to her thirty-one? She thinks he is too young, and she points it out repeatedly. It's clear that she is a bitter divorcee. She is not a submissive in any sense of the word, she toys with it for sexual gratification. Play acting in the heat of the moment. Ryan tries to hard to dominate her, and just doesn't quite pull it off. Maybe because it suffers from novel

I read a lot of books in this genre and how refreshing to read a book where the writer can actually WRITE!!! I have no idea on the two star review what possible could have been offensive or difficult to read. You know what you are getting yourself into reading this genre. That being said, this author puts a different spin on things and kept me engaged the whole story. I couldn't wait to see what happens and holy hotness is right. I can hardly wait to see what this author has coming in the ...more

This hot little read was fantastic!! Holy hot-stuff! Bite those pearls baby!! Talk about elite doms--Ryan is one hell of a fire-ball and thankfully can handle Yvette's hot-tempered strong willed but vulnerable heart. It made for a great read and I can't wait for more!

Yvette is a newly divorced Washington socialite. Ryan is a junior legislative staffer. A chance meeting during a snow storm tumbles them into bed together. Yvette shows some resistance to a new romance. She's concerned about her reputation. He wins her over somehow. And that's about it.

I don't write a lot of 2-star reviews. Usually when I do, it's because there was something difficult or offensive about the book and some kind of redeeming feature in the form of a character or writing style that

This is a quick, sexy story about Ryan and Yvette. She needs some change in her life and a new Dom might help. Enter Ryan who knows her better than she realizes. It's a quick story so there is no in depth story line but enough hot passionate scenes to enjoy the story.

“Her response confirmed he was right. Vanilla sex wouldn’t be her preference. Yes, he was a sexual dominant. But, unlike most of his fellow masters, he could do without the formalities of D/s and slip into “regular” sex if that was what his woman required in the moment.” 3 likes
