Although satisfied with her single life she has no objections to spending one hot unforgettable night with the man she could never have in high school. Or two nights — or maybe three.

4 star contemporary erotic romance

Having read the book Complicated by the same author, my interest in her writing style was piqued enough for me to try out the rest of her books released in e-book format. This story is longer and more intense than Complicated, but I loved pretty much every minute of Kent and Cali’s story.

I have discovered that this author tends to write romances concerning heroes and heroines who are a bit older than the normal twosomes that you encounter in your romance novel...more
This book has made me question my ability to judge new authors. I read two of her shorter novels in one day and was hooked.

When I started this book and read that Cali was 18, I was a little put off. Thankfully the story skips to “20 years later” which still was a little off alarming, But I told myself that I was being an ageist and that I’d be grateful for older H/H stories in a few years anyway. HOWEVER, it was super annoying when every other line was some comment about how mature she was at 3...more

A Hearts on Fire Review

--Renaissance by Zannie Adams is a steamy tale with an acquaintances to lovers theme. Cali and Kent first met when she was an eighteen year old aspiring reporter and he was a jaded, rich twenty something. The story starts with an odd albeit steamy prologue. Then jumps twenty years to present day.

I'm still questioning the need to jump a full twenty years in the future instead of lesser years in between but after reading the book, I'm more clear on the...more

A great read! Kent was a conflicted sexy man, and Cali was a nosy, big hearted but guarded woman. Their relationship was hot, tender, and cant put down good.

Zannie Adams writes, reads, caters to her chocolate-brown cocker spaniel, and watches cooking shows on television. She has lived in eight different states, had far too much graduate-level education, and generally done her best not to settle down. She has been writing novels all her life, but only recently did she begin to write erotic romances--a genre that has allowed her to explore her love of b...more

“Admit it. You just had sex,” Alice hissed.

Cali’s jaw dropped open. “That’s none of your business,” she replied in outrage, “and how the hell did you know?”

Alice shook her head “You’re glowing orgasmically. It’s disgustingly sweet. And Kent looks ridiculously relaxed and possessive.”

Brushing her best friend away and flushing a little, Cali pretended to look for her salad tongs. “Mind your own business.”

“Fine,” Alice grumbled. “Don’t tell me all the dirty details.” She paused for a beat. Then added, “It was rear entry, wasn’t it?”

Cali almost strangled on her shock and indignation. “It was not.”

Alice chuckled maliciously. “Don’t lie to me. He has that macho glint in his eyes. I’d know that look anywhere. I’m an anthropologist, remember? And mating rituals are one of my specialties.”
“Oh, I see. You’re horny.”
Kent cleared his throat. “I believe we’ve had more than one discussion about that adjective.”
“Right,” Cali corrected, frowning as she peered at the cellulite on the top of the back of her thighs. “You’re not horny. You’re lascivious.”
