Uhhh....The author needs a better editor. There were a lot of errors, which caused a lot of distractions. What's with the OOOOOO...That was annoying. I couldn't related to the characters. I found myself becoming annoyed and couldn't wait for the story to end. Jana is annoying... Sorry. I hope book 2 is better, especially since I paid for it.

I chose to read this novel because of two very convincing reasons:
1. it was a freebie on amazon
2. not one single review on or here on goodreads

Reading a book without any expectations can be very exciting...
If it turns out to be great, you feel like you discovered something precious no one else knows about.
If it turns out to be a complete waste of time, there is no one else to blame but yourself.

Who edited this? They need to be fired--immediately! Jena got on my nerves. What's with the integrity thing? Either find a new career where you don't have "to play the game" or do what needs to be done, good grief. And maybe I'm mistaken, but does a man have to be embarrassed about an erection when he is about to have sex? I swear she was always saying how Johnathen didn't look embarrassed by his hard on...ummm, no duh, that's what it's made for! I could also tell the author was British, and see ...more

I picked up this book for free, so I feel i really can't complain, i was expecting a romance, instead i got very graphic porn with no romance in it what so ever.

Good book

You people should just read this book yourselves and write your own review on this novel yourself and I really enjoyed reading this book very much so. Shelley MA

Mr Dark and Mysterious offers his hand to help me up. He’s quite gallant in fact. His wrist is olive and strong and his fingers long and masculine. His watch is of an obscurely expensive Swiss make I’ve never heard, worn elegantly relaxed, low on his wrist. The wrist has the dark suit – the white cuff – then the deep-tanned skin of a long-fingered, sinuous, male hand. I feel his power as he pulls me up. I can feel somehow that this hand is strong, yet it’s sensitive enough to hold mine with just ...more

This is the story of two passionate lovers who are totally opposite to each other but still seems to be made for each other. Johnthen Trent and Jana Kidd are poles apart and are meant to be attracted to each other.
Jana is a waitress in a posh restaurant, but she dreams of becoming a famous actress some day. She is an outgoing, self assured, beautiful young lady. John is a musician, director, a very rich and respected man in the society. He is a very handsome man and everyone wants a piece

Johnthen Trent was a good male lead to fall for, but the story was hard to work through, it has good parts and slow parts. The couple has good chemistry but by the end I had kind of lost interest. There is A LOT of detail and layers to work through and I think 3/4 of the way through I was not in the mood to work through such detailed angst when it was clear it wasn't all going to be worked out book 1. The end does give you a cliff hanger, which made me put the next book on my wishlist, but not t ...more

This is a story about a woman who wants to become an actress. Of course she ends up sleeping with a millionaire to get the roll she wants. The book is filled with erotica, however most of it is off the wall descriptive terms such is soft juices. (ever seen hard juices????) The book does need editing because the author flips between past, present and future tenses without warning and it doesn't makes sense. Overall good story line that needs polishing.

Free from amazon and it was pretty darn good. A good editor could clean it up some grammatically. There were some scenes that made me gasp at how hot they were and that gave it five stars. it seemed that it took three quarters of book to understand Jana and yet, I don't feel like I understand some of J.T's motivations toward the end, which I realize that we may in subsequent books in the series. J.T. seems too hooked too soon so I'm thinking more is revealed and angst ensues. Can't wait!

Wow. ..Johnthen. ...such a hot hot guy. where to start. This was a freebie, a bargain and a first of a Trilogy. Jana a would be actress struggling along. Meets Johnthen and wow sparks fly. He is secretive but it makes it more interesting to find out why. I could not read this quick enough. brilliant. now off to get book 2 and 3. Need a cold drink too ha ha ha phew :-)

Can't stand how often their full names are mentioned in the book. Every time Johnthen (what kind of name is that anyway?) said something that was supposed to be seductive, he ended it with "Jana Kidd", the main character's name. Speaking of Jana, it was just hard to relate to her. I got this book for free on Amazon, there's a second part to it, but I do not have any interest in it.

Great start

The writing style of this book took a little bit of getting use to however the storyline had my interest nice the beginning. This is the first part of a three book trilogy and I felt it ended at a good place. Will be continuing on to the next book.

An ok series. Read it all although admit to skimming some the hot scenes *gasp* just to get to the actual story. Progress was very slow.
Not sorry I read it but wouldn't reread.
Needs a really good edit.

an incredible story of Jana & Trent. she works as a waitress while she waits to get her big break. he is CEO of his own recording company. & together they set the city on fire. I loved the author's writing and the characters are something else.

This chick has issues. Like a boat load of them. And the internal dialogue she has is overwhelming. And we get no male character point of view. Ever.

I wish the author or editor would have correct a few things in this book. It had the potential to be a good book as it was I kept getting distracted by errors in it.

Love this book. The characters are fun and believable. I enjoyed the plot and like the author...HOWEVER she needs a better editor. I would have put 5 stars if it had some editing.

Before everyone shouts “Don’t give up your day job!” Ahem... I already did.

I left my job as an insurance clerk in June last year with all the regret of a woman wiping dog dirt from her shoe, and I have branched out into writing fiction.

Miranda is not my real name. I thought some of the more strait-laced mums at he school gate might look askance at the antics of Kara and Jana. And on
