*4.25+* A very satisfying woman-on-the-run story (forced hiding). Great hero who is jealous and possessive. There is a bit of "fighting his feelings" scenarios which is perfectly okay when his actions speak otherwise ... he..hee. I wished the suspense part was more developed, but I was pleasantly surprised with how engaged I was in the story.

This is not a dark read as the author's other books. This is pretty straightforward romantic suspense, heavier on the romance and relationship development.
In a nutshell, this is just a cheesy predictable suspense. Hence the 2 STARS.

An amazing debut novel by author Elle Christensen! When I heard that K. Webster and Elle Christensen were teaming up to write a novel, I was super excited. I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book, and I was not disappointed!!

Erased follows the story of Joss and Derek. Joss's life seems perfect, a dream come true. She has her dream job, boyfriend and protective father. Everything is perfect until one night. This one night, her entire life will change. She will find that people are not who th

This is a first for me I've never read anything other than horror really, I certainly won't be going back in a hurry! This book gripped me from page 1 I couldn't put it down. I was totally blown away by the skill of the 2 writers working together, I think I expected a bit if cheesy porn-lit and I got the total opposite I felt like I was there in the story with Slade and joss up close and personal in those clinches but don't mistake this for just a sexy book oh no!

I enjoyed this book, I a big fan of the guy/girl can't stand each other because they like each other. Almost like a cat and mouse game..Where the sexual tension between the two characters is so hot, you are dying to have them through out their rules and just get together.

I really enjoyed Jill/Joss's character. I think she was lovely and talented and strong willed. I just wish I knew more about her. It felt like something was missing.

4.5 stars!!

First, I didn't understand the cover but as the more I've read from the book, the more I understood. Though it's a bit futuristic (just like some elements in the book), it reflects the main character really well.

Erased is a collaboration between K Webster and debut author Elle Christensen and follow a young girl who is ripped from her old life and thrown into a new one, where she doesn't know anything or anyone, yet has to adapt to it.

I was gifted a copy of Erased in exchange for an honest review.

K. Webster and Elle Christensen packed a mound of sexy, fun, and thrill in to Erased.

"Life isn't all roses and glitter."

At the beginning of the story, we are introduced to Joss Parker, a young lady who has grown up privileged and always been the "good girl". She is a concert pianist, and seems to have her perfect life planned out for herself. However, she wakes up to discover that life will never be the same. We come to learn that s

I was generously given a copy of this book from the authors in exchange for an honest review.

As a result of a threat to her safety, Joss' life as a successful concert pianist has been erased and she has been given a new identity as Jill, a waitress in a bar. Bar owner, Derek Slade, has been tasked to keep her hidden and guard her life. There is animosity between the two as Jill feels imprisoned and is still in shock over loosing everything.

I absolutely loved this book! You can’t help but feel bad for poor Joss/Jill when she is ripped away from life as she knows it. You also can’t help but fall in love with damaged, sexy, dirty talking Derek Slade.

These two come from such completely different lifestyles and upbringings that I didn’t think their pairing could be pulled off, I am so happy to say I was very wrong! As Joss struggles to accept her new identity as Jill so does Slade trying to transform f

Where do I even begin to describe how well written Erased is??? You could never tell that this book is two authors writing together!! Elle Christensen and K Webster have totally raised the bar with this book. I would even say that they have mastered being able to write together and have created their own little masterpiece with Erased!!! I could not stop reading once I started.

I received this book as an ARC for an honest review. When I first got this book I was unsure how I would feel about the story. However upon reading this story it went beyond my expectations.

When we start out this book Slade is being recruited for a job. He tells the person on the other end that this is his last job and he will do this but never to call him again. Little did he know how much this last job would affect him.

The next chapter brings us to Joss and how she is waking up after remembe

I'm trying to put into words exactly how much I adored this book. Here's the thing, I'm a ridiculously picky reader. Especially when it comes to suspense and romance. I like there to be suspense but not too much where it makes me stressed out, and not too little to where it falls flat on the climax. And it has to have enough romance to entice me but not so much that I'm rolling my eyes at the cheesy. Well Erased fell perfect in each category for me. Everything about it was just perfect.

Joss is a woman who thinks she knows herself pretty well, I mean... who knows her better than herself, right? Wrong, it took her world turning upside down, being kidnapped and ultimately erased to find herself. I think her new identity gave her the freedom to do just that. It also helped that all shes known all her life has turned out to be a lie. Then men she loves beetrayed her giving her the wake up call that she can only ever trust herself.

* I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. *

This a very fast paced read on the shorter side. I devoured it in one sitting. At first I thought it would have a cliffy but it ends with a hea.

The story alternates between Joss, a.k.a. Jill, and Derek Slade. Derek is hired to protect Joss from the man trying to steal her father's top secret computer program. Joss goes undercover in Slade's bar. The two quickly fall into a love to hate each other relationship.

The synopsis of the book covers what the book is about in great detail and also gives you a good look into the storyline which had it all--twists, suspense, love, angst (betrayal) and a good plot.

The characters were very well developed.
Derek Slade is tall, muscular, hot and just the right amount of alpha in him. Is willing to do anything he needs to do to protect what he believes is his or what he want to be his.

Joss is very reserved and does as she is told. However, when she takes on the person

Joss is pretty happy with her life having her dream job, a boyfriend and a very protective father. Everything is great until suddenly it's not. She is kidnapped with every trace of her erased like she never existed. She's sent to live with someone she's never met and given a new identity because a person she has known and loved her entire life wants a password that she doesn't know! Her father has the password but will not give it up so Joss becomes Jill and moves on with her new life.

In this book you find that even the most unsuspecting people can surprise you. I like Slade aka Derek (I can't give away his other aka) lol. I love his jealousy antics & how he tries to not let them surface and tries to brush them off as something else. Slade may have a hard exterior (thanks to the help of his Uncle) & the only person that can bring his true self Derek to the surface is Joss aka Jill.

I was literally hooked right from the beginning and instantly connected with the characters, Joss/Jill and Slade/Derek.
Joss has to change her whole life to protect herself, and struggles with her identity. She is torn between Joss and Jill, and often had internal debates on who she is at that particular moment, I loved that about her. She discovers a whole new part of herself with Slade, and bec

This was an amazing combination of talent from two ladies that are so awesome. On one hand I would hate to be in Joss's (Jill's) shoes but on the other meeting an incredibly sexy alpha like Derek Slade ( Gideon ) I think would be worth it.

The synopsis provides enough picture of what this book is about - anymore than that then I would be dropping some major unwanted spoilers.

The storyline had all the right elements for me - twists, suspense, romance, angst and a decent plot.
The characters were great; Derek Slade was a hottie who had just the right amount of alpha tucked inside of him. I really enjoyed seeing Joss develop into Jill. Her new persona allowed her to reach in and pull out her sassy nature that she had buried deep dow

When Joss gets swept away from the life she once knew, she is having to start over. But she can't get too far when there are people looking for her.

Slade was in the "plan" he took Joss to a hide out spot. Where Joss finds her self as new person, with a bad ass attitude she doesn't like anyone stand in her way.

This is till one night when Slade breaks hers and she doesn't know what to do next. She has no one to talk to. Seeing so much tension between the two, you know they are going to end up toge
