Review to come with my tour stop on 10/5:

**FULL REVIEW**

“Why does he want to work with me? Why does my stomach twist up like a pretzel every time those stormy green eyes of his lock on mine? Why does the thought of working with him make me smile?”

The thought of working with the smokin’ hot Daemon Scott makes me smile…but this is Kelly’s story. Kelly needs to have a little spice in her life; her BOB just isn’t cutting it, and neither was her last boyfriend. Working at a prestigious Interior Des

This book is basically interchangeable with any of the other dominant billionaire books out there. There was nothing new and exciting. It is a decent book, several spelling and grammar errors (since for sense more than once) and ended on a cliffhanger. Where are these successful, dreadfully handsome men that fall for a woman at first sight? I haven't met any in my neck of the woods, but I digress. This book is neither spectacular nor miserable. It falls somewhere in the middle for me. I

Wow!!!! C Shell has done it again.... This book was HOTTTTTT! I loved the chemistry Kelly and Daemon had .... I could feel the emotions and the passion that they shared was off the chart!!!!

Unfortunately the spelling and grammar mistakes distracted too much from the story. Too many obvious mistakes that should have been picked up in a re-read. Some things didn't make sense and I had to look back to try and understand what the author was trying to say.

This story has great potential with a little bit more editing.

She has an idea. Mine you, not a very original one, but an idea nonetheless.

This could have easily fallen to the pattern of your usual romance novels, but them it's like the author just gave up and broke off the series. Just when I began to actually see the usual cliches of a story breaking free, she goes and mess it all up with a conflict that isn't even a conflict and a really nosy boss that I have no clue as to her intentions. Like why then and what do you get out of bringing that to her? o.O

In a world full of sexy and steamy romances it is very rare to find one that stands out of the crowd and grabs your attention from beginning to end. Well, you know what? Anonymously Yours did that for me. What a read! This has sex, lots of mind blowing sex, and passion but it also has something else. Heart. This is a book with a plot. A strong female lead character who knows what she wants and goes after it without having anybody dictate what she needs or wants. Daemon is the ultimate alpha- dom ...more

Passion, Hot, Sexy, Alpha Male… You like all of these things you will love Anonymously Yours. I like Kelly because she had the courage to leave a relationship she had been in for a long time and took a leap of faith to find herself in the world without her boyfriend. What she wasn’t expecting was to find everything she wanted in a new client of hers. Especially when what made her want him wasn’t what she thought would attract her to a man.

4.5 BIG Stars!!!

Kelly Dawson wanted more than she had with her longtime boyfriend, Gary. Deciding that holding onto their relationship wasn’t fair to either of them she decides to let him go. She wants what she has heard her friends talk about. She wanted passion.
Daemon Scott is a major playboy, who loves ‘em and leaves ‘em. That is until he meets Kelly. He is determined to make her his. After Kelly runs from him the first time, Daemon seeks out the help of her best friend.

**JUST BOOKED received an ARC for an honest review**

A modern day erotic Cinderella story with a twist…

Anonymously Yours is a romance novel about Kelly Dawson discovering sometimes love changes. Thomas Hardy once said, “Time changes everything except something within us which is always surprised by change.” Kelly finds that her love and sexuality has flat lined with Gary, she cannot phantom why because he is tall has an athletic built, wavy brown hair, and dark brown eyes.

Anonymously Yours is a very fast-paced, hot and sexy read.

Kelly fights with what she wants to do when it comes to Daemon. Her head is telling her one thing, her heart wants to protect itself and her “inner hussy” is just chomping at the bit to get very close to Daemon. I l

This was a quick read for me. I enjoyed the storyline, even though this is an insta-love story, which I’m not a huge fan of.

I found Kelly, the main character, endearing. She was sweet, sassy, and determined. She is confident at work, but needs a little help in her social life. Cue the best friends, Sasha and Tony. Sasha is quirky and flat out fun. I loved her no fuss, don’t mess with me attitude. She pushes Kelly into trying things and gives her unwavering support. Tony is great as well. He is h

I really enjoyed reading this book. The story begins with Kelly Dawson and her realization of being in an unhappy relationship with her longtime boyfriend, Gary. Their relationship has become so distant that they were practically leading separate lives – she wasn’t aware of who his friends are and vice versa. Plus there was no chemistry between the two. As a matter of fact, the opening scene of the book described exactly the lack of chemistry between Gary and Kelly.

Kelly Dawson is a interior designer. She broke up with her boyfriend 6 months ago because she wanted more than he could give her. To feel more passion.

Daemon Scott is a hot, confident, dominant, successful man known for his reputation as a playboy.

They met at a meeting awkwardly. He was impressed with her so now she is the head of the project.

He wants her more than a one night stand with her. He wants her to be just his.

With just touch, he made her feel alive. He is a danger for her heart becaus

Short yet steamy! Those are the words I would use to best describe "Anonymously Yours" by C. Shell. At only roughly 117 pages, C. Shell packs love, lust, drama, friendship and heartache in each wonderful page.

"Anonymously Yours" is the story of Kelly Dawson, a struggling young woman who has recently left a dead end relationship with her high school boyfriend. She has a job she loves but is missing the companionship of having a person in her life. Her best friends, Tony and Sasha, ar

Solid 4 stars...This book definitely grabs your interest
from the beginning. I found myself laughing at her description of what sex is like with Gary. I know most women can relate to her in some way. Your rooting for Kelly to find that one guy that can make her feel whole and something in bed.
Daemon, is arrogant from the start and you wonder how he could be anything but a playboy. Fortunately all it takes is Kelly to settle him down so he says. I wanted their relationship to work from the day

Anonymously Yours, good book.
Good concept and definitely good flow, where I can easily catch up with the story.
It's short but I love how in that length have it all., the drama and the hotness!
The characters are also good and they are easy to love. Daemon reminded me of Christian, a bit.. lol
On how the story ended, it was good but I was kind of . I'm excited on what will happen next between Daemon and Kelly!! Gah, it's killing me!! Can't wait!!

Kelly is a brave strong woman- Leaving the only man she's known wanting more out of her love life is defiantly a hard brave decision. She was suppose to let loose but has failed and now spends most of her nights lonely. When Daemon bursts in her life the sparks start flying with just a look. Kelly finally takes the plunge with Daemon just to have it ripped apart.
Lots of hot steamy juicy sex. Ending is a cliff hanger folks!
The story is so good it's worth the cliff hanger.

I really enjoyed this book. I had a hard time putting it down. I really like the main characters Kelly and Daemon. The chemistry that they have is HOT. I enjoyed the secondary characters also. Kelly's best friends Tony and Sasha and Daemon's brother Trey.

This was just a really fun read. I am excited to find out how it ends in Only Yours.

I'm mad about the ending!!!!! I can't wait for the sequel!!!!!! See how conflicted I am...I'm started to sound like the heroine in this story. I felt it was too short and fast-paced but other than those two factors this book was enjoyable

Lexi Cubbins
It was a little too fast-paced for my liking, but the funny and witty inner thoughts of the heroine and the chemistry made up for it. Now I'm just dying to know what was Daemon's ulterior motive or if he had any.

Romance books are my obsession. One that includes a bad boy or an alpha male who knows what he wants is my own personal version of heaven.
