¡Ay Dios mío! What a steamy, sexy way to welcome in the New Year! This quickie can work as a prologue to Private Property and it got me interested in adding that book to my TBR... until I read Auntee's review. Ay ay ay mamacita.
4 stars – Contemporary/Erotic Romance

This is a fun, sexy ten page quickie/freebie read about a woman who starts the New Year off with a literal bang, when she finally bangs her hot Latin boss! It’s a prequel to Private Property, which I definitely plan to read now that I’ve gotten a taste of the author’s writing style.
This is a really short story but does give a little bit of background on characters that we meet in Private Property. If it was longer I probably would have got into it more and rated it higher but can't justify going higher than 3 stars due to the low word count.

I loved this introduction to Jodi and Mark who feature in the novel Private Property that comes after this prequel short story! It gives a nice background to the two characters and the sexual attraction between them comes through loud and clear as they embark on a new aspect of their relationship. The sex scenes between them are sizzling! Readers will definitely want to pick up the continuation to their story. 5 steamy stars!

This is a short a saucy prequel to Private Property that gives us a tiny glimpse of the intense heat and chemistry that Mark and Jodi have. They've wanted each other, but this New Years Eve they are about to take their relationship to a whole new level. Trust me when I say you don't want to miss out on this one!

Very short prequel to Private Property where we'll get more on Jodi and Mark's story. Definitely a good snippet to get you interested in the series. Short available on Leah Braemel's website as a freebie.

A sexy sizzling tale about Jodi's seduction of her boss in a celebration worthy of a New Year bang. It's a prequel to a longer work called Private Property, and based on this teaser, it is going into my TBR list.

Leah's books always leave you wanting this prequel to Private Property. Love the Hauberk series. I really like the fact that Jodi is a strong heroine and Mark loves that about her. Like in the story..." It's time you get back up on the horse and Mark's the perfect stallion to ride."

This was an okay story. It was a cute way to bring in the New Year. It's something I'll have to try next year for my New Year Eve. The dialog in here is a bit hokey and eye rolling. That's really what made this more of a 2.5 star for me. I can't quite say it is a 3 star.
Wow, for like twelve pages, that is realllllllly hot. Definitely has piqued my interest for the series. Very nice short!!!!
