Ten years before Lola Winters met him on the sidewalk in front of Hey Joe, Beau Olivier signed a contract that would deliver the first millions of his future fortune. All he wanted to do was celebrate with a beautiful woman—and no strings attached.

He entered Cat Shoppe on the Sunset Strip looking for anyone, but when he saw the kitten-eared girl on the strip club’s main s

’She stilled completely. “I’m not for sale.”
“What?” he asked, leaning forward.
“I said, there isn’t enough money in Hollywood to get me to go home with you or anyone else.”

After the explosive revelation from the second book, I am finally ready for more Beau Olivier. This novella bring you back to ten years earlier where Beau first met Lola and this is the moment where the whole revenge come into full swing

I love how sassy Lola is during their encounter. A complete opposite of how a pushover she is in the other books. While Beau well it is nice to see what state of mind he is during the whole encounter. He was on the verge to being a multi millionaire after a

This is a super short novella. It's a retelling of events from book 2 from Beau's POV.

It's included in the set, and I am not sure it's needed to go onto book 3. It read pretty flat to me and didn't reveal any new insight into Beau or his motivations that we don't really already know: he's obsessive, controlling, feels that money can buy or excuse anything, etc
It's short, your not missing anything if you don't read this.
If anything it makes the dude's obsession with her even weirder- because you see how trivial their interaction years ago really was.
I'm no stripper, but I'm sure dancers get offered $ for sex all the time- especially during private dances.
For some reason this guy can't deal because he was out celebrating a financial windfall, and this chick in a shiny bikini turns him down? Lol
So years later he masterminds the breakup of her relat

**Contains mild spoilers if you haven't read books 1 and 2 yet**

Enjoyed this novella, which is set ten years previous to the first book in the series, and told from Beau's POV.
I now get why Beau was the way he was, and why he had a point to prove with Lola - his ego was bruised from her rebuttal. So a lot more of the story has slotted into place and makes more sense to me.
This would've been better at the start of the series, but maybe that's just me!

I would listen to negative reviews. I absolutely loved this series, but this short... I can’t even call it a book. It was the length of a chapter... was not worth it.

It wasn’t worth the money or the read. It didn’t add any depth to the story. Just nada. It does absolutely nothing.

I read it after I finished all the others. And it felt pointless after concluding everything. In addition to the fact that where Beau’s coming from is completely understood and covered throughout the series. It felt re

My Rating for Addition

Because I liked the connection between the two of the books; however I don't get the "Spoiler" warning you gave about it. Nothing gave anything away about his paying Lola for staying with him for the one million dollars as the first two books had. So what the heck was the "Spoiler" supposed to be? His fake sister? How would that spoil anything for the other books. It only told how he made his millions, and about how he met Lola, and her connections to Johnny and the club. S

Explicitly Yours series is a 5 star read all the way from the first page of book 1 to the last page of book 4 (5 if you read th novella)Jessica Hawkins is an Amazing author. Her Charachters come to life when you read the books.

A temptation you can't refuse . This is a must read series . I've got the books and the Audibe set. Now I can read this over or listen when I like. Yes this series is that good . What a delicious read. You won't regret it because it will have you gripping your seat from th

It was good to read Beau's point of view and background story. He was caught by Lola the moment her saw her but by the end of the night it had all gone south for the wrong reason. By chance Beau and Lola's paths clash ten years letter and his plan comes to play. Why did he not just remind Lola of their night at Cat Shappe rather than wasting all that money and causing them pain?
I Love how Jessica wrote the books. I was hooked from the first one till the end

I loved this novella. It was nice to take a look back at where it all began for Beau and how from there things managed to get so twisted.
He thought that everyone would bow to him and that everyone would be able to be bought once he made his millions and he was right.
I'm sad that it's over, I left reading the novella until the end. I'll take time to read this series again and I look forward to reading more of Jessica's work.

The audio book is narrated by Christian Fox whose voice is super hot. He read at a good pace, in a way that immersed me in the story. He voiced the dialogue of the different characters very well. Did a great job and prompted me to search out other books narrated by him.

Jessica Hawkins hits it out of the park again with another instalment of this series. I'm loving the drama between Lola and Beau and and always excited for the next time I'm driving and can listen to their angsty saga again.

Kind of a rip off!

This little story from when the characters first met 10 years prior should have been a free addition at the end of book 4! I just felt it was another way to get money from readers!

A good prequel

This prequel gives you a little more insight to Lolas and Beaus beginning. What made their relationship so chaotic and demeaning from the beginning. A good short read.

Really enjoyed this little taster; read it after reading all four books. Loved this series. And I don't usually love many series, as sadly the writing's never consistently great as in this series. Would recommend reading all the books. ...more

Loved it. Want more of it. Its an amazing read. I live how this author writes . She pulls you into her stories with characters and all their ups and downs. Look forward to reading more of her books

Ok! Let me start with this series barely got 4 stars!! The series started off pretty good but for me went downhill from there! I barely got through this series not as great as other books by this author
This was a really quick read, but didn’t give anything new that wasn’t covered in books 1 and 2.
