Kate finds herself locked up in her apartment building’s laundry room. It’s the middle of the night and there’s a man with her. Which would be the great start of a horror movie, except this is real and thankfully the man isn’t that bad. Actually, he’s quite nice. Oh, and hot. He’s a neighbor she’s seen a few times, the playboy with the golden looks. And as they find ...more

As you can see by the subtle cover, this is a cute little piece of erotica. Quick and dirty (cough) story about a chubby girl who falls for her hot and amorous neighbor who she boinked in the laundry room the first night they met. Lots of angst over him having a girlfriend but still coming to her for a toss. There's also the girlfriend's father who wants a man who cheats for his rich, spoiled daughter. Gotta love a dad like that. Not as bad as I thought. I was looking for a wallbanger and found

I just loved this story!

Kate was such a great character. She was "real." I liked that the author didn't make her some skinny supermodel. She had real, deep emotion that made her a person that we all can relate to.

I was right there with her on the other side of the door, practically screaming "Don't let Jace in," at the middle of the story. I felt so bad for her. She wanted love not use.

Once I learned that Jace had his reasons, I started to like him a bit more but was wary of if he would really

No matter how great other people think this book was/is i just cant accept or get involved in the cheating scene...i dont care how down to earth, from our lives and so on Kate is. She should have cut it before it started...i cannot accept being the second woman, no matter his reasons or he should have cut it with the fiance if he wanted the heroine so bad. I like stories with women that have a bit of flesh, me being one of them, so thats why ive got this book, but honestly, half of ...more
Kapaktan anlaşılmasa da hikaye gayet güzeldi, karakterleri de aşklarını da sevdim.
I actually want to give this book 2.5 stars. It was a steamy little read, and was entertaining between novels.

Kate is doing some late-night laundry when suddenly the lights go out and a loud bang sounds. Come to find out, she has been locked in the basement laundry room with her neighbor, Jace. The door is locked from the outside. With no one hearing the commotion to come release them, they settle in for the long wait. Soon, they are both freezing from the temperature drop and the concre

Ronica’s Review

This quick and dirty short story is about a liaison that starts with Kate and Jace locked in a basement laundry room over night. And the relationship progresses, so to speak, from there. Based primarily in the apartment complex where both main characters live, this book is a fast read with naughty sex scenes and a hot-blooded relationship. Add in Jace’s daytime girlfriend and Kate’s need for a public connection, and everything heats up to a big finale.

3 Tea Cups!

I liked Emma and totally empathized with what she was going through. Some men are nearly impossible to turn away, no matter how much they hurt you, and I was so glad when she found her spine. It was hard for me to like Jace, but he finally broke through when he pulled his head out his ass.

I liked this book. It was a good short, steamy read. Would have been cool if the author would have put a bit more angst into it, but still good.

I fell for that cover. Its the only good thing about the book. The guy was a total dick that already had a girlfriend that wouldn't have sex with him unless she had a ring on her finger. So he goes to the h to slate his needs and even though she denies him she gives in each time.


So it starts off with them locked in a dark laundry room at like 3 in the morning, they talk a bit, both get cold, ends up with him holding her, he's suddenly cupping her b

I have to say the cover lured me in.

2 Stars because this book had so much potential but, I guess, was written hastily? The sex was great, okay. Very graphic and detailed which is an A+ for me but whatever detail it had was what detail it lacked for the entire plot, like, 80% of the book had Jace and Kate fucking and the 20% was a mix of basically everything.

I didn't know Jace was a professional to the point of having an assistant until the end of the book. I seriously thought he was either an a

As much as I would love to give this book a higher rating just for the highly lickable ass on the cover, I had to stick with 2 stars. The guy in this book was a total douchebag, and he did not redeem himself NEARLY enough for my liking. The girl called herself weak and pathetic and yeah, she was right on. When I got my hopes up that she had finally come to her senses and was all, "I am woman, hear me roar", that lasted a whole 5 minutes before she was back with him. Then I had high hopes that he ...more

A sweet, quick read showing the human side of us mere mortals! This was a good read but not at all what I expected - I was expecting something dark and this was light and sweet. I liked it, so it was a nice surprise on that front
The story is of two tenants in an apartment building who start an affair after ending up locked in the laundry room together. She develops feelings for him and can no share him with his girlfriend, and while he resists her attempts to push him away, he respects her wishe

Also posted @ Happily Ever After Reviews:
WOW, hot sex but other then that I really didn't like this book. He used her for his own good and didn't give a thought about what it would do to her. Made her feel like a whore - god I hate him. Even at the end when he supposedly redeemed himself. NO just no, no one should be walked all over like that and still love the person who did that too them. She was a weak heroine and I would have smacked her if she was a friend.

I struggled with this one. It was hot but as a social worker and a survivor of domestic violence I couldn't ignore all of the DV red flags that kept popping up. There's a big difference between a strong alpha character and one who uses power and control over others. Sometimes I can't shut off reality and just read to enjoy, this was one of those times.

2 1/2 stars
It was good at points and maddening at others. She should've put her foot down much sooner and been adamant. He was using her for sex, whether it evolved to more or not. If she wanted more, she should've said no much sooner. His asshole reaction should've just sent her away. In the end, I didn't like either of them and didn't believe his turn would be permanent.

Ugh. Dude is a complete scumbag who uses the doormat heroine for sex, pretty openly not having any respect for her. He is basically abusive. Being a douchebag isn't hot. Frumpiness of the heroine wasn't particularly relevant. This could not be any less my cup of tea.

Hot read... :)

Love how her characters are flawed. Much more realistic.

Though I don't condone the cheating going on. Didn't like to be the second best and second woman. But this is still a HOT read.
