Josh has a doggie! Er...the doggie's physical appearance is pretty impressive. :)

First of all let me say something about my rating. Overall I loved Entice. It's a wonderful, witty, steamy and at times very hilarious sequel to Exquisite. Loved the snappy dialogue! I found myself smiling and laughing all the time and I was pleasantly surprised when the light-hearted and funny

I absolutely loved Exquisite, and this book comes very close to it, in fact, the first half of Entice was even better than the first book! I couldn't believe it! Just amazing  photo 279453.gif

Dr Shelly Monroe is smart and beautiful. She has a great job and wonderful friends. But she always seems to pick the wrong kind of guy. She wants someone responsible and successful, someone well put together and completely unlike her last boyfriend with his get rich quick schemes, ripped jeans, and flighty outlook on life.

5 BLISSFUL STARS!! Ella Frank brings the goods again! Exquisite was no freshman fluke, this woman can write!

Oh Josh Daniels, you are MY DREAM!! As with her first book Exquisite, Ella Frank skillfully crafted another emotional, passionate, sensual, enchanting book!! Entice is proof that once again this author has what it takes when it comes to writing contemporary romance, and the staying power to compete with the big guns!

The second delicious instalment in Ella Franks Exquisite series and its a beautiful, soulful erotic romance.

Ella Frank first burst onto our horizons with her stunning contemporary romance, Exquisite, last year and weve been waiting for some months for Shellys story. We were delighted and privileged to receive an ARC of Entice from Ella Frank and were so happy to be able to tell you all that it was so worth the wait!!

I LOVED THIS BOOK!!! Let me introduce you to my Shelly & Josh...

"I've wanted you since the moment I turned around in Mason's bar. Happy?"

"I'm horny, not happy. You're so fucking sexy that all the blood in my body is in my cock. But you already know that because you keep aiming your eyes down there to check"

This is the story about Georgia/Shelly & Josh. Yeah, I like calling her Georgia because I just like this part of her. Shelly was a little bit annoying

Ella Frank writes the kind of contemporary romance I love. First and foremost Im happy to say this book has a concrete ending! With the serialization craze often leaving the reader hanging with a mind boggling cliffhanger, its more than refreshing to get lost in a well written romance that leaves you with a happy buzz at the end. Shes a great storyteller giving both POV with banter and dialogue that make it easy to become

Entice is the second book in the exquisite story. I loved Mason in Exquisite but I love Josh, the hero of Entice more!! Call me fickle. It's a gorgeous story about two people looking for something and it's filled with DELICIOUSLY, HOT, SMOKING SEX!!!! Lovely!!!

Dr. Shelly Monroe is Lena's BFF. She's a smart woman who knows what she wants: GOOD SEX with a MAN and not just any man but one who is a suited professional who can take care of himself financially and take care of a woman in the bedroom.

5 Stars!

What if everything you think you want isn't what you actually need? This is the exact question Ella Frank poses in her second book, and follow-up to the very popular Exquisite, Entice.

Dr. Shelly Monroe is NOT a shy woman. She goes after what she wants, but lately she's found herself conflicted between the kind of man who manages to light her fire in bed and the type of man she believes to be the right candidate for a life partner. Because he's Mason Langley's best friend, as well as

If you thought Exquisite was hot, ladies, wait until you read the scorching-hot scenes in Entice. I'm talking panty-melting, leave-you-breathless scenes. Ella Frank does not disappoint.

Okay, Ill be short on this one, mostly because I really dont know what to say except that this was a great second book in this series. Not thats much of a surprise, anyway.


So, this is the story of Lenas best friend, Shelly, and Masons best friend, Josh. They both got burned by past relationships so when they meet each other they automatically think the worst about the other and don't want anything with each other.
Since they really cant deny that are completely attracted to each other, they

Ella Frank brought her "A" Game, AGAIN! Frank dazzled me in Exquisite, so much that I couldnt believe it was her debut book. If it is even possible I think I liked Entice more. She gives me what I crave most in a book. Her heroines are real, successful, strong yet flawed, and at times vulnerable. Her heroes are so sigh worthy and could write THE book on how to romance to get

I don't know what to say. This book is a roller coaster. Thanks Karen for an awesome buddy read. It was the highlight of this book and the only thing I can think of when it comes to describing this book.

It started off with a boom.

It got even better.

We highlighted like crazy.

Finally some romance.

And then - boom! Half way through we was confused. First we wanted to slap Shelly. Then we wanted to slap Josh. Then we just gave up.

5 stars for the first half and 1 star for the second half = 3 stars.

This book had it all going on in the best way for me, Steamy, Sexy, Laugh out loud funny, Great characters, full on chemistry and Fabulous story telling.

I was hooked from the get go, the writing style is like literary chocolate (and I like chocolate)! After falling in love with 'exquisite' this book most certainly did not disappoint. I for one love a series that links characters and this series does just that - I loved that I had another chance to learn more about characters from book one,

What did I think? I think that I love Josh - LOVE HIM. I was so totally in love with the first book and was so disappointed when i finished it and realised I could not delve straight into Shelly's story. Had to wait a while for it - was it worth the wait? Totally. I really loved the story. Shelly, trying to be tough. Josh is such a sweetheart. Great to catch up with Mason and Lena again and check in with Rachel. Had a big happy, sappy grin on my face through most of this. LOVED the Southern ...more

Dont make me want to keep you. Josh felt a huge grin spread across his face.

Well then, dont make me want to be kept.

Josh and Shelly know what its like to be used and burned, they both have had relationships where they gave and gave without getting anything in return. They are sick of it, Josh is ready to settle down and is looking for someone nice and sweet, while all Shelly wants is for someone to take care of her. Josh and Shelly cant help but get roped into being at the same place

In Exquisite, we meet Lenas best friend Shelly... Shelly Monroe is the perfect package. She is smart, successful, gorgeous and funny. So why is she still single? After being burned in the past and used for her money by exs, she is particular about who she dates. This causes her to date guys that are successful, and nice, and boring!

Ah, another great read from Miss Ella Frank!

The story of Dr Shelly Monroe meets construction worker Josh Daniels. These two meet up at Monday night dinner at Exquisite with Lena and Mason. He's Mason's best buddy from grade school who just moved back from CA. Sparks fly but both are quick to refuse any chance of a relationship. Josh is everything Shelly wants but avoids at all costs. That tough, bad boy mentality that'll love them and leave them. Shelly is, in Josh's opinion a Man-Eater. It's

3.5 ★★★

I loved Exquisite so I had very high hopes for Entice. I enjoy this authors writing style, story development and detail. I was really feeling this one for the first 50 plus % and then not so much.

Josh was portrayed as just a bit too sweet even though he stood firm in what he wanted, and he did want the Man-Eater Monroe. Shelly was portrayed as an alpha female; upfront and direct in what she wanted sexually. Although afraid to let herself fall for Josh even though she wanted him badly.

From the moment Josh and Shelly meet at Mason's restaurant Exquisite there is an instant attraction between them, even though neither will admit it and they drive each other crazy. Mason and Lena keep trying to set Josh and Shelly up saying they will make the perfect couple. They deny their attraction and each think they have a good reason for doing so - Shelly recently broke up with Adam who was just using her for money so she doesn't want to get into

**3.5 stars**

Looks like I'm in the minority again. So far, I'm not following the consensus when it comes to this series.

I just didn't understand Shelly. Her judgment of Josh in the beginning and of men in general didn't really sit with me. We were only given one example of her past relationships, and it just didn't seem a plausible enough reason for her to be so turned off by a blue-collar man. I also didn't buy her parents being the cause of her trust issues. For a good portion of the book,
