I loved everything about this book, it had me hooked from the beginning. I read it straight through. It has hot scenes, and off the chart chemistry. This book is the start of a great series and I can't wait for the next book!

I have been a fan since I read the first of her spicy urban fantasy series. So when I heard she was doing something more contemporary naturally I had to read it. This novella was all kinds of cute. There were so many times I found myself saying, "Aww." I really like that in Rayna, Ms. Carver has created a real life heroine. A woman that has an issue that has been keeping her from fully living her life, but who bravely takes steps to overcome her fears. I love reading non-perfect heroines. They m ...more

This book is why Cassi Carver continues to be one of my favorite authors! I really enjoyed the story of Rayna, an erotica author who has a rather extreme case of agoraphobia, and Kyle, the man who has fallen in love with her over the internet. Their chemistry is sizzling and I could tell that their love for each other could help heal the wounds of both their pasts.

I can't wait for the next installment in this fabulous new series!

A quick, sexy novella about an agoraphobic erotica writer and a billionaire.

The premise in this novella is something I have never come across. The hero and heroine start off by online lovers! Rayna and Kyle's relationship starts when he emails her as a fan of her erotic novels, from there they start exchanging emails and eventually video chatting together. Rayna is terrified her agoraphobia will make Kyle leave her when he realizes how serious it actually is, and Kyle has not told her that he is

Rayna suffers horribly from agoraphobia and Kyle is the man with whom she has fallen in love. One problem-their relationship is long distance and they have never met each other in person.

The premise follows Rayna as her attempts to enter the outside world are fueled by Kyle’s promises of nightly forays into

Review Posted on

In If You Need Me (The Ashford Legacy #1) by Cassi Carver, Rayna Sommers is an erotic romance author with a fan base that seems to increase on a regular basis. Her readers would be flabbergasted to know that she is afraid of her own shadow from the moment she steps outside of her small Santa Barbara apartment.
