I have to say despite the fact that I have loved all of Loraine's books I was a little unsure of this one before I read it because it is not what I normally read. However I am so glad that I was proved wrong on this book. Corporate Ties Is amazing. It has a great leading female who knows how to take control of a situation which is one thing that Loraine is known for and one of my favorite things about her books. It has romance and mystery and will keep you sitting on the edge of your seat. I did ...more

Amazing! I don't normally go for romance books but this was truly a suspense filled book right from the very first page. The characters were believable and the attention to every detail in the story had me enjoying this book till the very last second! The plot unlike most other romances had substance and intrigue and and kept me gaping till the very end! If you didn't already know this was Elizabeth Loraine's first time writing a romance you wouldn't believe it. Nothing about the story, the char ...more

An incredibly emotional, palpable, riveting, and somewhat erotic read that I devoured within one evening after purchasing it.

Well done!!

E.L. Loraine did a great job with Corporate Ties. Olivia is a smart, no-nonsense character that I liked from the first page. This book is a steamy romance plus a great mystery, topped off with lovely characters.

I only give it four stars because I noticed a few typos/errors. Otherwise it was a great read, E.L. Loraine is a brilliant author.

This is the first book I read of E.L. Loraine. From the first page to the final page I was kept intrigued with the story. I couldn't put it down. I always felt that I needed to know what happens.

Olivia, what a woman. She is gorgeous and smart as hell. But she never let her looks get to her or allowed them to make her career. While working for Dolby she was given a task of trying to get a contract with a man named Matasuki. While going through his files she became suspicious and asked her new nei

I don't even know where to start, Corporate Ties was so good! The suspense of everything was killing me, like finding out which guy will she pick in the end or who was really killing these people and so much more. I want give too much away but this book was intense and full of drama, never a dull moment. AND oh so hot!!! My favorite character would have to be Adam Stein although he was kind of an ass at times, my heart went out to him. Tyson was kind of a jerk and then we have Brian who is just ...more

I was gifted this ebook by the author to read in exchange for an honest review. I have to admit that this book totally surprised me and I was drawn in by the intrigue and mystery of the plot. Liv was a very strong woman with beauty and brains to boot. She had many male admirers and the one I swooned over was Brian. The author wrote her characters so as to connect with the reader and man were the sex scenes steamy hot! It's been awhile since I've read a romance/mystery and I forgot how much I rac ...more

This book is part of a series but it can be read as a standalone. Olivia is a very good character. I like how smart, driven and successful that she is. She has a drive to get to the top and she is doing everything she can to get there. I love a strong female lead in a time when so many books portray females as weak. The problem is she may have stumbled upon something way higher than she is and people are dying. When she reaches out to get information from a friend about a new client things go fr ...more

I was given this book from the author for an honest review...and this is as honest as I can get.
E.L. Loraine is also the author of the Royal Blood Chronicles also. She is an amazing writer. This new book of hers proves that she can write some amazing stories!
The first few chapters set the tone for this book. There is sex, murder and intrigue that just wants to keep you reading. Then she introduces the main character, Olivia.
Olivia is a no nonsense type of women. She knows what she wants and know

I have to say I really enjoyed the storyline in this book. All the way through it had you wondering who was bad. You will wondering what Liv is up to the whole time. You might even get your heart broken and have it repaired again. It is a wonderful ride throughout.

The only issue I had and the reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because there were many times the scene seemed to change and you didn't realize it was. I had to re-read the sentences to figure out where I was.

I received this free through goodreads. This book was not my normal reading material, and yet I was still very impressed with this book. It was sizzling from start to finish, and allowed for an easy connection between reader and characters. It draws you in with great humor, and soulful characters, all the while holding you with page-turning imagery. I did however find the plot felt a bit rushed to me, and this took away from the story itself. I did enjoy this quick read.

This was an interesting read for me. I normally love these types of books but this one just didn't pull me in all the way. Giving it 3 starts seemed too harsh though.

The one thing I did enjoy the most was such a strong female lead character. Olivia made the story for me and the background of a mostly male dominated work world.

I enjoyed it!Some minor editing and head hopping, but didn't interrupt the flow too much. I enjoyed Olivia's character. Fun, quick read.
