Someone is hell-bent on sabotaging Julian King.

Julian is a hot-shot lawyer and a natural born womanizer with an unnatural addiction to the opposite sex. He also happens to be the boss's son, which makes him a natural target. With a Rolodex filled with scorned women, a brother who loathes him and the competitors he defeated on his wa

“I want you – every inch of you. I want you naked and on your knees before me, I want to stick my tongue in every orifice on your body, and I want to fuck you until you’re begging me to stop.” ~ Julian

Well, if that line doesn’t want to make you read this book, I don’t know what will. Holy smokes! Is it hot in here, or is it just me? Don’t you just love surfing Goodreads and accidentally find something you absolutely just loved? Yea, that happened to me with this book. It was just a

I can't begin to express how bad this was. This was recommended to me because of the possessive/dominant hero. Julian was possessive in spades...but that was the only thing I enjoyed! The characters were one dimensional...Julian was only a sex addict, Heaven was only ambitious. There was nothing in between. I couldn't connect with the characters and just got fed up with the book. The addition of the unknown but omnipotent stalker was just thrown in out of the blue. When the stalker's identity wa ...more

Raise your hand if you like angry, passionate sex with the enemy. Well, maybe not in real life, but in the land of Erotica, it makes for some really smokin’ hot scenes! INSUFFERABLE PROXIMITY has all that and more!

When it comes to playing the field, Julian King has the market cornered – he effortlessly reels in a lot of spectacular tail on a very regular basis. He’s a big-wig lawyer with an even bigger ego and is accustomed to getting what he wants, when he wants it.

I couldn't count how many times the hero slept with other women after meeting the heroine. I wouldn't call it as cheating because they obviously weren't together, but I'm not really interested in reading that kind of story where the hero sleeps around A LOT. DNF.

11/29/2012 Update: The author posted on Amazon that she is not doing this. That she had added a chapter and removed the epilogue because there is going to be a book 2, and that's where the epilogue belongs.

Seriously? The author is pulling the book to break it down for the 'installment plan.' Bullshit. This is starting to cause yet another 'Readers vs. Authors,' battle. Personally, I now refuse to buy any book (exceptions would include Urban Fantasy, or series with books lon

I really enjoyed this book again for the 3rd time around. I love the whole Drama-Suspense-Crime-Office Rival-HOT SEX-Dominant Alpha Male- Feisty Female Lawyer. I cannot wait to read the following book.

Some of the sex is arousing and a turn-on, but this book is not for me. Several times I was wishing it would be over.

The best part is probably the numerous sex scenes where Julian gropes her, displays her, sucks on her body parts and pleasures her with oral sex. She resists, but then she can’t resist. Most sex scenes were short with not much emotion. A small percentage of the scenes had Julian entering her. Heaven never did anything oral to Julian. The turn-on is probably the caveman who’s obses

Soooo.. although I saw a couple of similarities from FSG or This man I really enjoyed it... What?!! nooo.... I LOVE IT.!!! Especially the fighting/banter/fighting/smart ass talk they kept until the end. This woman is a true heroine..

What good story. Mixture of FSOG with the controlling Lawyer Julian who has similarities to The Lord of the manor Jesse. Heaven is a lawyer but dresses in frumpy clothing to disguise her sexuality. Julian and Heaven are constantly at loggerheads they are in competition for the offer of a partnership in Julian's fathers business. in a moment of madness Heaven uses underhand tricks to sabotage Julian's partnership chances. Julian finds out and makes her sign a 30 days contract to be at his beck an ...more

Rat Bastard

Every single one of those names fit Julian King. He is the ultimate Rat Bastard.

Julian King and Heaven Deville are both hotshot attorneys at the same law firm. They go head to head over everything and will do anything to win. When they’re both up for partner, things get even more intense.

Julian’s sexcapades are legendary. He’s a manwhore of the highest order. Anyplace, anytime, any woman, just not the same woman twice.

Heaven does everything she can to downplay

Dear Author:

I wanted to give this book 3 stars, I really did. We're not talking about a great piece of literature here, but the plot was interesting, as was the evolution of the two main characters, and the sex scenes were pretty hot. However, I simply could not get over the grammatical errors that are littered throughout this book. The words THEN and THAN are not synonyms, they are NOT IN ANY WAY interchangeable. I think a fairly accurate guess would be that the words then/than are used incorre
3.25 stars

The low star rating would be for the first 60-70% of the book. I was totally engrossed in it the whole way. However, I felt like Julian was just a controlling prick most of the time. He forced Heaven to do quite a few things that she wasn't comfortable with, and therefore I was uncomfortable reading it. I don't care that it was part of their unconventional arrangement, it just wasn't right.

But I will say that Julian made a swift turn around from sex addicted man-whore to smitten, posse
This book was fun. Granted there are caricatures versus characters (Heaven’s mother for example) I was able to just go with it. If you're looking for a fun Fifty-Shades-of-Grey-Alike pick this up.

DNF page 267 because it was bloody awful. The heroine was a tit and the hero was a giant plonker. Not sexy or hot it was however extremely annoying. all round.

5 stars!!!

Written in 3rd Person POV, and I like it that I get to know what goes on someone else's head aside from the 2 main characters.

He's a manwhore! damn! He really couldn't keep it in his pants! All he wanted was to get off, but then he changed, because of her, and I like that giving her pleasure, pleasures him..

I like the transition of the story, from mortal enemies to lovers. This is coming from a reader who HATES 3rd Person POV novels!! I couldn't help it, I know i'm not the only one wh

Really enjoyed reading this book.

I guessed who the bad guy was but the reason threw me for six.

I think my favourite character has to be the heroine's mum she was a card.

Also loved the main characters.

Funny, sexy and entertaining. But the story did drag on at times. I think the author has great potential. The characters were very vivid and strong.

3.3 stars
Let me explain the way I’m rating this book. The 3 stars is for the originality and overall of the book and the .3 stars is for the 30 days of the contract between Heaven and Julian.

First off, if you look at my updates I was right about who done it. Its always the quiet ones you have to watch out for. That person wants to ruin Julian so much they secretly tape and photograph him in some compromising positions and send the evidence to Julian’s father and boss, Ayden.

I've reread this book several times now, so I figured it was due for a revamped review. This was the very first book I ever read from this author & I'm so very glad I did. I simply love her. Her men are aggressive, possessive, sexy as sin top dogs & her women are feisty, independent, balls to the wall closet freaks -it's an explosive combination.

The book was sent to me as a gift. I gave it a chance despite of my 50-50 willingness to read it. The book was re-edited last August and so far there were only few misspelled words that I noticed, but still not acceptable if you are really serious about publishing your book. It was an erotic romance, with an original story line and interesting characters. There were some scenes and places that were very enthralling for those who are not familiar with different kinds of elaborated and over the to ...more

WOW!!!! This book was hot to say the least. I finished this book a couple of days ago but couldn't form a review until now. First things first, this book is for mature audiences. It was sooo steamy it had me fanning myself at times.

In this story we have the hansom, charming, powerful, and dominating Julian King. He comes from a family of successful attorneys and is himself one of the best attorneys around. His only drawback is that he is a complete sex addict and his libido gets in the way o
There was one night that I stayed up all night reading this book. All. Freaking. Night. I watched the sun come up while I was reading it. This book was truly riveting and captivating. First of all, when i say "enemies to lovers", I mean exactly that. THESE TWO HATE EACH OTHER! It makes the whole "contract concept" even more interesting to read. When I first saw that this was 700 pages, I really thought that it was going to be a little run-on-ish, and there were some parts that seemed a tad repet ...more

I started out really disliking this book, like hating it.
Just really despised the characters.

Julian- Disgusting. No redeeming qualities WHAT-SO-EVER
Heaven/Sevign: blah..i could never relate to her. Obviously there are admirable reasons as to why she distances herself from things that i personally enjoy and indulge in often but it took awhile to really get inside her head, even with her narrations.

Then things got interesting.

I like this book! But it turned very disappointing.

I mean (view spoiler) But the dialogues are fast and fun, and the dirty talk made the rest for me. Until (view spoiler)
Whew. What a read. This was actually a pretty good book. It was a bit long but it was worth it leading up to the end. The only thing holding this book back for me was constant changing of the POV that was sometimes in one paragraph and the ending that ended so abruptly that I thought the ebook had messed up. You do have to stretch your imagination a bit for this book but it was a decent read.

Julian and Heaven are a mighty fine alpha couple that compliment each other perfectly.
