I, Faith Parisi, love my life. I have the best job—resident sex-advice diva for Visage magazine—I have the best friends, and I live in the best city in the world. Things are pretty damn fabulous. That is, until Henry “Harry” Sinclair III comes crashing back into my world like a bad case of herpes.

I hate the way Harry’s lip curls in contempt whenever he sees me. I hate his

***4.5. STARS***

Why haven't I ever read Tillie Cole before? I must have been living under a rock. I feel so left She is one talented storyteller. If her other books are as good as this book then I am diving in.

This was a great lighthearted read. I guess it could be classified a rom com because I definitely laughed my ass off. Faith Parisi works for a magazine and writes a sex advice column. Harry Sinclair is the heir to the publishing company and is Faith's new boss. Harry is English,

I know Tillie Cole can do heartfelt and emotional, and I know Tillie Cole can do dark and gritty, but with Thoroughly Whipped, we see that Tillie Cole can also do funny and steamy!

Faith Parisi is such a character. She's a writer for a sex advice column and has a good life. Then stuffy and stuck up Harry Sinclair comes back to the US and he's now her boss. She and Harry have a history and it doesn't show-case either of them in the best light.

Thoroughly bland story with some BDSM thrown in. Then there’s the absolutely zero chemistry between our heroine, Faith, and the pretentious hero, Viscount-call-me-Lord-soon-to-be-Duke Sinclair. 🙄🙄

MY REVIEW AND OTHERS: can also be found on my blog:
'THROUGHLY WHIPPED:' Is a light hearted full length, stand-alone contemporary romance novel by Author Tillie Cole.

I've read Tillie's dark books, her sweet romances, her tear jerker, so it's only fitting that I jumped on this one!! Like seriously you have to ask yourself what can't this author write!?!

Tillie Cole is another one of my unicorn authors, whatever she puts down on paper I will read!
Ok, this is really hard for me.. I have been battling what to rate this book as I have never rated any of Tillie’s stories below a four star. The thing is that even though the writing was just fine, and there were some laugh out loud moments... this was just an ok read for me.

The first part of the story didn’t grab my attention at all. At times I felt like I was reading two separate stories at times as well. The scenes at “Nox” just didn’t capture my attention at all, and the feel that the setti

"Love didn't come easy to me at first."

Thoroughly Whipped is a contemporary romantic comedy full of spicey text, a complex plot, and an opposites attract (to the extreme)! With laugh out loud dialogue the entire read, Ms. Cole has crafted a hilarious Romantic Comedy with light BDSM and loveable characters. Faith Parisi is a sex columnist working hard to make her name in the news industry. Despite her crass and spunky demeanor, she has somehow stolen the attention of her conservative and

The cover alone had me convinced to read this book. I didn't even care about the blurb.
This book had some great laugh out loud moments and honestly it's just what I was in the mood for.

I love our main character, Faith Parisi. She was not afraid to speak what was on her mind and it made for some funny moments. She was fiercely loyal and confident.

Harry on the other hand was kind and compassionate. At first, he came across as grumpy, serious and a little mean but Faith looked underneath

This is different from what we have used from Tillie yet I enjoyed it a lot! It was a fun read and super sexy! Faith and Harry's story has the perfect dose of humor , sexy moments and great dialogues!

I loved this side of Tillie and hope we can see more books like this! It’s refreshing, fast paced and I love the writing! I adore Faith and Harry together. They have great banter and I find them hot!!

It’s a great read you should definitely read it!

Tillie Cole has always been one of my all-time favorite authors. Her stories have either been dark or incredibly angsty. This is the first time she’s delved into the Romantic Comedy genre and I think she nailed it 100%!! I laughed out loud so much while reading this book! From beginning to end, I flat out ADORED Faith and Harry’s scorching hot and insanely hilarious enemies-to-lovers romance. ”THOROUGHLY WHIPPED” was a cross between

2 disappointing stars :/

Well . . . . . . that was disappointing. . . . .

This was my first Tillie Cole novel and to say I was disappointed is an understatement :( I think I read a different book from everyone else because by the time I made it to the end of Thoroughly Whipped I was just annoyed and exasperated! Which is such a shame because I went into this one expecting to really like it!

What was the biggest problems for me?

1. The chemistry - or lack thereof - between Faith and Harry! Yeah

Thoroughly Whipped is a light and fun contemporary romance, much different than what most readers are used to from Tillie Cole. Faith Parisi was a sassy and very lovable character, I absolutely loved her personality and the relationship she had with her friends and parents. The story starts when Henry “Harry” Sinclair III becomes the new CEO of the company Faith works for. She already met him years ago when she interned for the compan

I'm not a huge fan of Rom-Com but I really enjoyed this book.

I was so excited for this new release by Tillie Cole!!!
But as the story was progressing I couldn’t connect either with the characters or with the plot.
The first four chapters were very interesting. When the sex club and Maitre Auguste were added to the plot, my interest went downhill... It just felt out of place for me...
Although the story had potential and a lot of readers will enjoy it, I dnf @ 27% 😔

I think I am getting too old to deal with heroine’s with too much sex on the mind. I think I will stick to her darker books from now on because at least I didn’t find them annoying.

When Tillie announced this book I was curious. I got use to read her heart wrecking and dark romance books. And although I usually don't go for RomCom, sometimes we all need to read something to make us laugh. And that is what I was expecting from THOROUGHLY WHIPPED, a good laugh. But I literally just finished reading and I'm feeling so much more. I did laugh and I also fell completely in love with both characters.  

I gotta confess, it took me sometime to get into the story. I loved Fai

Tillie Cole's writing range is unmatched. She's going from rom-com (Thoroughly Whipped) to dark romance (Hades Hangmen series) to YA coming of age stories (A Thousand Boy Kisses) and it she's pulling it off. She's so versatile and that's great.

I was a bit hesitant to read Thoroughly Whipped, cuz rom-com is not my favorite. The humor can be a hit and right down your alley but more often then not it's a super miss and you just want to bang your head against the wall. While Harry with h

4 1/2 "I choose you."Stars!

This was the funniest, dirtiest, sweetest story I have read in a while. I adored both Harry and Faith. I adore their story. I liked just about everything about this book. If you are looking for something that's mostly just light and fun with some serious heat between the sheets, I highly recommend this one. When I got to "Fin", I had a silly goofy smile on my face. In short, this story made me happy. I needed that. Happy reading!

To each their own but this? This ain't it........

I'm not going to do a thorough review because it's just not worth it so quickly

H/h go from enemies to lovers
Some very bland and boring BDSM added with a couple who had ZERO chemistry
h starts hooking up with the master of the club while knowing the H but obviously not knowing they are one and the same person
The h was no stranger to hookups and random ONS
The humor was just as bland as everything else and the jokes of the frat boy type

this is such an unpopular opinion here, but this book was really a mess, the plot is so messy that I can't even put It on words because it's going to be confusing af, but im going to try
this book is about a girl who hates her boss and ends up having sex with him in a club in which she doesn't recognize is him, everything good so far, they barely speak and the first 20%-40% of the books are weird sex scenes.

Ok so this book is a nice read. Its funny and enjoyable, however the plot was really bad- LIKE LEGIT THE WORST- From Tillie, I expected better. Without spoiling the book I will say that the plot is nothing new, the female lead is dumb and annoying and the male lead is just stupid for what he does, (view spoiler)

I’ll admit I went into this a little blind. I knew it was a romantic comedy, with an enemies to lovers trope. I started the book and was immediately worried this might be a Fifty Shades of Grey book, which I didn’t like mostly because of the bad characters and writing. But, I am happy to say the character development and writing in this one was simply wonderful. The characters were so easy to love. Faith was someone you could imagine as your best friend.

Our characters were fun and well thought out and likable.
The story was believable in a way that allowed the whole royalty thing to be a plot point and not an annoying third character and the dirty bits was just enough to keep things interesting.

"As I woke up this morning, I was the happiest I have ever been in my life. Having you in my arms, you knowing everything there is to know about me, was freedom. True freedom. No masks, no disguises, just us. To me, that is perfection."

I knew Tillie Cole was trying to write a light and funny story, but I was honestly surprised by how much fun I had while reading "Thoroughly Whipped". This book reminded me of my teenage years when I used to spend all my free time reading and watching rom-com

It's a hilarious enemies-to-lovers, office romance between a stuffy British Boss and his American employee. The story is in a different tone from an otherwise Dark & Twisted writer, Tillie Cole and her English humor comes out in full force

I love Tillie Cole.

I love her versatility as an author.

We’ve been treated to dark reads, emotional tear jerkers and even Young Adult. So it didn’t surprise me when I saw this was to be a Rom-Com. For some reason I didn’t bother to read the blurb for this; I went straight in blind. (I think I was blindsided by the brilliant cover!).

Faith, our Heroine, was a really fun, outspoken character. She’s remarkably clumsy and had a habit of putting her foot in her mouth at
