Review: I was given an ARC of this book by the Author in exchange for an honest review.
OH MY GOODNESS! I devoured this book in a matter of hours truth be told. I don't think I actually slept and just read it straight through in one sitting. It was that good. I was instantly sucked into the story spun by Kristin Flynn, and am desperately waiting for the next book in this series, which will no doubt have me just as sucked into Georgia's story.
The characters are absolutely fantastic, and even if I were a normal girl, trying to decide between the two guys vying for Georgia's attention would be a difficult decision! The characters are so well written and make me want to have them in my life. Seriously.
I do not have any complaints about this book at all, and I would greatly recommend this story to anyone who loves strongly created characters. We've all known someone like the mean girls in this story, the hot male best friend, the hot quarterback, and even the reformed mean girl.
Okay, I lied, I have one complaint...THAT CLIFF HANGER ENDING!! I want more damn it, seriously give me more. Next book please! I advise you to also check out the playlist that goes with this book, it's a really good one and definitely fits the story crafted by Kristin Flynn.

Review: I was given this book for free by the author in exchange for an honest review.
I adored this book. I am usually not a fan of women's lit, however, this book captivated me from start to finish. The heartache, the struggle, the suffering of these characters is something that will haunt me. The glimpses inside Phoebe's head after she'd been sexually assaulted by someone she trusted, cared for is haunting and moving. The guilt that Helen experiences is mesmerizing in its reality.
Reading stories that deal with this delicate subject are difficult and can often go horribly, horribly wrong. However, this is not the case with this story. Kudos for E.L. Farris' handling this subject fantastically. The fact that it is such a familiar case for Cassandra, and it begins to dredge up her own memories, and not the happy kind either makes it all the more a thrilling story. The ending of this tale of survival was not what I initially expected, and my initial reaction was...WHY IS THERE NO VERDICT?! And the reason it didn't happen was....Nope, gotta read it to find out why because this reviewer is so not telling. Sorry kiddies.
The blurb, the summary does not give this story justice, it cannot do so without giving away important information that decidedly can be classified as spoilers! I would like to thank E.L. Farris for giving me the opportunity to read and review her book. Definitely check this out, you will not regret it. (less)

Summary: Cass Jones is a plus-sized fashion designer. By accident or fate she meets heart-throb Andreas Katsakis and after one night she flees in Cinderella-esque fashion, leaving behind a signature piece of her clothing line.
Review: I was given a copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.
In this steamy Cinderella-esque story that starts with a hotel room mix-up, an expensive suite is double booked, and originally it had been booked to millionaire Andreas Katsakis and then booked for Cass Jones for the night after she pitched her plus-sized clothing line.
The mistake was discovered when Andreas arrives and after a shower climbs into bed only to find it occupied by Miss Jones. After a steamy sexual encounter Cass flees, leaving behind a signature nightgown from her collection, and leaving many questions unanswered for Andreas.
This book easily captured my attention and sucked me into the story. Toni Dare has a flare for the erotic, and her writing style is one that will keep you captivated from beginning to end.
The only complaint I have with this story is some of the time jumps are jarring and tend to pull me briefly from the story. It isn't horrible but it is noticeable. Also, it is short! I want more of the steaminess between Cass and Andreas! They are a fantastic couple and I do hope that Toni revisits them again! (less)
