Just waiting for 'Forbidden Pleasures' now.


As it says this is a prequel to 'Forbidden Pleasures' and as such it did its job, it gave enough to entice and intrigue.
This is an interesting read the main female character Jenna is incredible, she's strong, intelligent and independent she makes no excuses for the fact that she likes sex, on her terms and rarely using the same partner more than once. She's tattooed and her hair is currently bright blue and she makes no excuses for who she is but then

Jenna Lang is a self made woman with a past. She needs the no strings attached sex, her choice, her control, her rules. Her appearance reflects her attitude, the blue hair, tattoos, and piercings all make people underestimate her. She owns her own computer tech business and she is in demand for her skills.

Rylan Archer is a self made billionaire that keeps trying to hire Jenna as his head tech. Rylan makes Jenna willing give up some of the control she needs. Can he have her changing her rules?

As usual Ms Parker didn't disappoint with the start of this new series! She is easily becoming one my favourite authors in this genre.

This is a prequel to her new Pleasures series and I cant wait for the next instalment Forbidden Pleasures to be released.

This sets you up for Jenna and Rylan and I really want to know more about Jenna's past that leads her to be so adverse to closeness - if that is even the right term for what I am trying to say. Jenna uses guys for sex and on her terms and never

What an amazing story. I am loving Jenna. People shouldn't judge who you are by what u look like and that is what happens to Jenna. We get a glimpse of what happened to Jenna. When she meets Rylan I just couldn't get enough of them together. Amazing story and can't wait to see what happens next

CLIFFHANGER: No (but left you wanting more!!)

Jenna is not your girl next door. She is far from innocent and sweet. She uses men for one purpose and one purpose only. Men are just an outlet to have an orgasm and it’s always on her terms. Jenna is always in control and never does a repeat performance. She is self-employed and is good at what she does (she’s a computer tech). Jenna is pierced, tattooed, with blue dyed hair. Not what you would say your average computer t

Bring on the next one!!

This was a quick read but boy did it get the job done. I'm hooked! I'm interested to see how things progress between Jenna and Rylan.

Jenna Lang is a brilliant freelance computer tech who is tatted up, has blue hair and keeps people at a distance. She's used to being judged because of her appearance and has some secrets that prevent her from getting close to anyone. She calls the shots, fucks with her eyes open and doesn't mix business with pleasure. Then she meets gorgeous

Broken Pleasures is the prequel to Forbidden Pleasures. Broken Pleasures gives us a glimpse into Jenna Lang’s life and touches briefly on how things were when she was younger. Rylan Archer is a self-made billionaire who seeks out Jenna’s help with a security breach at his software company. The attraction between Jenna and Rylan is electric and I can’t wait to see what happens in Forbidden Pleasures. We got a tas

This was a good start to a potentially hot series. I do hate serials, but couldnt resist this one. I love the writer's frank style. Jenna Lang is everything that a woman shouldnt be; brash, independant and forward. I'm dying to know the whole of her secrets. The bits and pieces of what we do get only fueled my curiosity. Rylan was a complete mystery. I expected him to rush in and take charge. He didn't, he let her set the pace and lead their encounters.
I can't wait to see where these two go. It

Jenna is my favorite heroine from Ms. Parker. She's strong, smart, independent and damaged. Computer geeks are a rare breed and Jenna just fits in, right along with Rylan. Brains are extremely attractive, having a snarky attitude adds sexiness. Her uniqueness is intentional and beautiful, tattoos and jewelry are meant to test people's reactions. Rylan looks past it and sees her, without challenge just understanding. But, she is damaged as is hinted through nightmares and comments. Can Rylan brin ...more

Broken and Beautiful. Scarred but Brilliant. Hiding but in plain sight Lenna Lang is in computer secutiries and writing code for your business protection is her specialty. Self employed and contracting herself out has left her exactly how she wants to be...IN CONTROL. Until she meets her next client.. Archer.
This is a serial series that will have you squirming in your seat to get to the next page! Sensual and scorching Archer can turn the ever stron willed Jenna inot a puddle of goo! And she lov

"I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads."

I am a big fan of Ms Parker's and this teaser prequel gives every indication of another super series coming our way. I could be best friends with both the main protagonists, and definitely will enjoy being a voyeur on their future encounters. Snap this up quick whilst it is free, and get set for the ride!

I have read quite a few of this author's series so far and if the prequel is any indication, Broken Pleasures is going to be another one that I love!

Jenna is a firecracker- she has plenty of secrets in her past waiting to be revealed but she comes across as an intelligent and beautiful woman who rocks blue hair and tattoos. Rylan may be a billionaire CEO but we get glimpses of a normal fairly down to earth guy inside the hot, polished exterior. When they are in the same room, you can feel the s

Wow! Introducing Jenna in this prequel was brilliantly written. With valuably hidden messages and cleverly detailed scenarios, M.S. Parker's newest series is going to be outstanding! Jenna's sexual desires, intelligence and a secretive past kept me intrigued throughout the book. Unveiling her darkest hopes and fears is going to be tough. Can she allow anyone to penetrate her walls? Will Rylan push her too far? Or win her over? Broken Pleasures 0.5 has a message and it was well received. I can't ...more

LOVE Jenna! LOVE Rylan!! Two very intelligent people that are computer whizzes and yet, so different!!! As are all of M.S. Parker's books, this one is a great book!!! Jenna is out there!! Hopefully we find out why she is the way she is with sex, as the series progresses! Most of M.S. Parker's books having me screaming NO at the very end, but this one had me laughing and saying "yeah right, good luck with that one!" Looking forward to the next book in this series!! A must read, for sure!!!

So many questions in my head after reading this prequel. M S parker gives you just enough information, to pull you into the story.
I like the character Jenna Lang . I feel as her story emerges so will my emotions. Will the sexy billionaire Rylan Archer, be able to get through her impenetrable walls. This story is only going to get hotter and darker. Just my kind of book. Cannot wait for the next book in the series!

Omg... M.S. Parker has done it again! Just when I think she could not write a better series she writes another one and I fall in love all over again! I have to say so far Jenna is my favorite heroine of all M.S.'s characters. She does not take crap from anyone and takes care of herself. I can already tell this is gonna be my favorite series by far!
