Forty-something divorcée Cate Roberts was always a pushover when it came to her little sister, but agreeing to pose for the cover of Zoe’s romance novel might be taking it too far. Especially when she’s confronted with the male lead, Bo Gaddis. It’s a good thing that Bo is gay, and much too young for her, because Cate could easily see herself falling for the embodiment of ...more

After reading a short blurb for one of Ms Alanna Coca's novels and then wandering over to her website to discover she also writes under the name of Olivia Brynn, I experienced a few moments of indecision, not sure which of her e-books to pop into my shopping cart: one of the mainstream romances written as Alanna Coca, or one of the erotic novels penned as Olivia Brynn.

The storyline for Cover Story tipped the scales: an attractive middle-aged lady with a son in college reluctantly agrees to pose

Recommends it for: Fans of contemporary erotic romance
You know those book covers with the really hot looking guys and the beautiful women? Have you ever fantasized about being that woman? Well, Cate Roberts gets to live out that fantasy when her younger sister Zoe talks her into posing for the cover of her new book – Four Seasons - as Cassandra, the heroine. Bo Gaddis, the current romance novel cover heartthrob is going to be posing as Lucas, the hero of the story.

Cover Story is a tastefully written and incredibly hot story that has you turning th

Hot! A lot of authors struggle to make a cougar story sexy (older woman, younger man). A lot of the time the female lead just has too many issues.

All women have issues with how they look when faced with a hunk of a man. Cate is no different in that regard. What's different with her compared to a lot of other books in the same genre, is that when Bo tells her she's sexy, she believes him and gets over her issues quickly. Which makes for a very pleasant read.

My one tiff with this one, is that it's

At request of her sister, 42 year old Cate agrees to a photoshoot for a erotic romance cover with the much younger Bo.
Olivia Brynn dives right in the story without much prelude, which captures you from the very start and won't let you put the book down. The sparks are flying between Cate and Bo and watching her insecurity mingle with his confidence will keep you tied to the book until you finish it.
The only drawback is that it is rather short, but definitely worth it.

A short story, very well written. Sex is very explicit and hot. I wanted to be Cate. Loved the original cover too.
Review coming shortly.

Olivia's Goodreads account is pretty slim. Look for Alanna Coca's Account ( see what she's reading. To keep Goodreads reader-oriented, Olivia does not leave ratings on books she's read, nor does she comment on reviews, but she appreciates each and every reader who invests time in her work.

Olivia Brynn is the very saucy alter ego of romance author Alanna Coca
