F*ck and chuck. Pump and dump. Hit it and quit it. One night stand. Didn’t matter how I branded it—that’s all she had wanted it to be. That much was clear when she left me with my pants down and my dick still out.

What she hadn’t counted on was fate intervening and our worlds colliding—again.

The day I showed back up in the life of Chloe Griffins, I knew I had to have her ag

I was totally captivated by this book. SIZZLING HOT!

“Quite a mix of innocence and seduction, Chloe. Why do I have a feeling this might be a reflection of you as a whole.”

It was supposed to be a one-night stand.Two months later, they meet again. And between them it was a pretty nice the truth and dare game.
His warm breath on my neck sent a tingle of anticipation down my spine. I prayed to God I hadn’t just made a deal with the devil.

The chemistry between Max and Chloe was great. They
Loved this! What a great start to this serial! Chloe is in New York for her friends bachelorette party and has a steamy hook-up with a super hot and sexy stranger she meets at a club. Imagine her surprise when she runs into her one night stand months later. Max is all kinds of sexy and I love how he goes after what he wants. He's hot, rich and mysterious. I love the connection between these characters. Of course, being a serial, this one ends in a cliffhanger and I can't wait for Volume 2 to see ...more

I first want to say that I beta read this after it was completely finished AND it's my very first Elisabeth Grace book. I can't believe I haven't picked up one of her books before. I have a huge author crush now.

Indiscretion: Vol. 1 takes us on one hellva ride. We get inside the head's of both Max and Chloe. Max is…swooonnnn….that's all the vocabulary I can really muster up after reading this. He's charming, smart, a bit vulnerable, and 100% sex on a stick! Both aren't looking for anything serio
My opinion and has some small spoilers, but not about the ending. Just what made me not connect to the characters.

Here are my thoughts.

I was excited to read this one but I am tired of the annoying BFF that pushes her friend to have sex with a stranger. (The friend can tell by the guy's looks that he is not a serial killer?!?!) I just did not feel the connection. I mean what was it about the Chloe that had Max so taken by her? Was she that beautiful?? What made her so beautiful??? I mean he barel

I just finished reading Indiscretion two hours ago. And wow.



I don’t usually do this. As a matter of principle I don’t fangirl over novellas. I don’t squeal over books that left me hanging.

Or, I didn’t used to do that.

Honestly, though, what right does Miss Grace think she has leaving us hanging there? It was going so well. There were no words. And then poof.



Like how is a girl supposed to react after a cliffhanger like that? How? HOW?

Okay you people!

So Angela (yes Angela the developmental editor of the book) practically shoved down this book into my diaphragm. Mmmm okay maybe not shoved, pep-rallied maybe?

But thank you Anj for doing it so and thanks Lis for graciously providing me a copy!



I read it in the office and that's probably the greatest mistake I have ever made because hello? Reading about Max Richfield in the freaking office is a BIG FUCK NO.

NO people, do not make the same mistake
Hot little taster of whats to come I hope.

Fast paced read a one night stand that will end up anything but.

They hit it off in a club banged it out and didnt realise how much alike they were, well not much talking went on, cloe sneeked away after the encounter leaving hotty Max but its a small world when fates involved.

Cloe is climbing her way up real estate & Max was the son of a property billionaire.

Short read that entices you onto the next book with its edgy hair raising cliff hanger.

I have been dying to read this book, stalking the author like a total fangirl for weeks to get my greedy little paws on this series. She finally had mercy on me and let me read Vol. 1 & 2. I couldn't put it down. I devoured them both within just a few hours and loved every single word. I absolutely love Chloe and Max and I can't wait to see what happens next!!

Very quick read. I liked it, nice characters and storyline so far, but we will have to wait and see how it all ends because it´s not over yet! 1st out of 4!! Why not just make it into a one book instead of 4 short books? This is so starting to piss me off!!! SERIOUSLY!!!!!
But I want to know how this turnes out, so off to the next one...

In the first line started laughing. Chloe is in her best friends bachelorette party, Jackie, who is giving her a bad time for not having fun and letting herself get carried away by the moment and see the what's arround her. Chloe believes that her prince charming doesn't exist, In her life she has lost people that she loved the most (for different reasons), so she believes that she'll never find the right man for her to spend the rest of her life with, as Jackie found hers.

The Indiscretion Series was my introduction to Elisabeth Grace's books and as a whole I enjoyed it. I was lucky to have all four volumes on hand, so I didn't have to wait between each release. Honestly, I'm not sure I would have continued on if I hadn't had all the books in the series. I did read the first two right away and made the decision to see it through and in the end, I'm glad that I did. Volume Three was my favorite in the series, but each one held a piece of the puzzle that kept me int ...more

Gitte: I’m always hesitant when starting a serial; is there enough to get me hooked in such few pages and is my curiosity and my emotions invested enough to continue upon finishing? Well, I kind of guessed I was going to enjoy it because I love Elisabeth Grace’s writing and yes….I’m hooked and look forward to the next instalment!

Wow! that was a great start to this novella series. I love novellas, they are short, sweet and get straight to the point without all the fluff and filler. To me, if it's a good novella, I will devour it swiftly and be ready for more straight away. This was a perfect example of that.
Chloe Griffins is gorgeous yet focused entirely on her career and her sister. Her sister has always been everything to her, as she was her replacement mother for so long. Now her sister has graduated and is off to co

“Quite a mix of innocence and seduction, Chloe. Why do I have a feeling this might be a reflection of you as a whole.”

Indiscretion: Vol 1 is the first in a new serial by Elisabeth Grace. I am personally a sucker for serials and very much enjoyed this steamy fast read and cannot wait to read the next installment for Max and Chloe. This story revolves around two people who have a very good one-night (if you can call club sex one-night) stand in New York while Chloe is there for her best friend

WOW WOW WOW!! The story starts off at one of New York City's newest high-end night clubs to celebrate Chloe best friend Jackie's upcoming wedding. While looking around her eyes lock on a set of piercing blue eyes(lets just say this guy was smokin'.And not like lets cook some marshmallows over the fire kind of smokin.

3.5-4 stars. Chloe is in NYC throwing a bachelorette party for her best friend Jackie when she runs into Max. Chloe is the sort of person who takes her responsibilities seriously, which includes looking after other people instead of herself. She's shut herself off to romance, but Jackie is encouraging her to step out of her box and to simply enjoy life. So Chloe does exactly that with Max and while their encounter was brief, it was memorable for both of them and liberating for Chloe. Since it wa ...more

What a clever idea to publish a full length novel in sections. Although I’m sure others have tried this as well, I’ve never read one like this and I really enjoyed it.

In Elisabeth’s past two novels (which I loved) her writing style seemed to grow and improve with each book. With Indiscretion she blew me away- her attention to details and the descriptions she used made me feel like I was right there with the characters. Elisabeth also has the amazing talent of writing any genre and including humo

And so it begins…

Chloe Griffins is out celebrating the upcoming marriage of a friend, when she locks eyes with Max Richfield. What ensues that night is unforgettable for both of them.

”I’m stashing my underwear in my purse, in the middle of a bar, because I just engaged in anonymous sex with a stranger.”

When their paths cross again a few months later, sparks will fly again, and the heat will be brought to Bar Harbor, Maine warming even the coldest of nights.

The anticipation in this book is killer. Great build-up of characters & story line.

Max & Chloe are both very job focused. When they meet up at a club one night they have a one night stand. Neither can get the other out of their heads and as fate would have it they meet up unexpectedly two months later. Chloe tries her hardest to brush Max off but he is very persistent in his pursuit. He’s charming & fun and we start to get a glimpse into Max’s life and I can’t wait to find more about him.

I absolutely love these novella series. I am a huge follower of several of them. I hadn't heard about his until its release and I was super excited to start it.

I don't know if it is because I just came off of a string of amazing 4 and 5 star reads or what but this fell a bit flat for me.

If I was basing this book off the sexual tension and sexual intensity I would give it a mind blowing five stars. Storyline wise, however, it fell flat for me. And the ending was j

Indiscretion was a hot little detour from my regularly scheduled reading! Chloe and Max's story is a quick and easy read, funny, steamy and fast-paced. Chloe has a one-night stand (actually a hot quickie) with handsome Max at a club in New York City. They never thought they'd see each other again but they run into each other in her hometown of Bar Harbor, Maine. Elisabeth Grace has a sexy, breezy, enjoyable writing style and does the alternating POV very well. Definitely ends on a cliffhanger bu ...more

A 5 star review for Elisabeth Grace!
Without revealing too much, Chloe Griffin's a busy lady, driven to get what she wants without complications.
A one night stand may unfortunately do just that, enter Max and the deal!
A great mix of hot chemistry, steamy sex and conflict, enough of everything to keep you wanting more from Chloe and Max!
I have never read a book by volume before but have to say I'm enjoying it very much!
I loved Vol.1 can't wait to read the next!
I highly recommend this series.

First I have to say that Contemporary Romance isn't my favorite genre. Saying that, this book was so good!!! It got my attention right from the start and I couldn't put it down. It was so hot, sensual, and sexy as hell!! I just fell in love with Max Richfield and wanted to just slap Chloe. You have a man like Max paying attention to you, you need to jump! He's so passionate and considerate. He knows what he wants and goes after it. He makes me swoon! I am so excited to read the next installment! ...more

Looking for a quick sexy, fun, easy read! Look no further... Indiscretion delivers!

What a great, fun, fast read! Read it in a couple hours, really enjoyed it. It's got a feisty female, and billionaire sexy Alpha! What's not to love?
I'll be purchasing the rest of the books within this series ASAP!

Very meh and disappointing. The story's not original either. I was hoping that maybe it would be the writing that will be the saving grace of this book given the teeming amount of 5-star ratings this has received. But no, it wasn't of much help either. Tsk. Good thing this is only a few pages long. ...more
