Let me introduce you to Mr. Dimitri DuPont. Confident. Cocky. Bilingual. Seductive. Mysterious. And supposedly not the man for Ms. Trinity Parker, a summer hire at the high end boutique Voleur on Fifth Avenue in New York City.

Trinity has been brought into Voleur to look into the company books and see why the store is not as profitable as it has been in the past. She is efficient, professional and determined in her role at the company. Trinity is not looking to make friends there but rat

I LOVE this new book of Alexandra's More Than Just A Pair Of Pumps. Trinity and Dimitri met in unusual way. Their attraction for each other is undeniable. This story is beautiful, emotional and thrilling.

Trinity works in a company that needs to rescue from being down. She also encounter workers that are sneaky and secrets to keep her job unsuccessful. Dimitri is very private and women are flirting with him wherever he goes. Their relationship is not smooth as some people are against them. I fou

I was given an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. Honest is what you will always get from me: good, bad or in-between.

From the beginning, Dimitri DuPont is a mystery. You never know exactly what to think of him. Yes, he comes from a rich family. He dresses nice and has that rich air about him that says he demands respect. When Trinity doesn't "bow" at his feet, he is intrigued; not only because of her beauty, but because she isn't impressed by his money and standing in society.

This is my first book to read by Alexandra Iff. For me this book had me confused at some points and scratching my head at other parts. While the storyline is full of potiential, to me this one fell flat unlike the beautiful Pair of Pumps.

Trinity Parker is a young 24 yr old who has been hired to check out the 'books' of a successful store in NYC. Taking on this job would ensure that she would be able to return to school and finally obtain her degree. Although when she walked in on the first day,

Mortified she attempts to extricate herself from the situation, not wanting to have anything to do with Mr Dupont despite her strong attraction. Dmitri refuses to let the incident pass wanting it to be more than just an accidental encounter. But Dmitri has a secret that can blow everything out of the wa ...more

I was entranced with this book, because I was so confused. Usually being confused is not a good thing, but in this case it is. This book is not a book that you know how it is going to end. I had to keep reading it, so I could find out what was really happening. Trinity is a college student that has been hired to crunch the numbers of a store to see why they are not making the profit that they should be. Demitri is a sexy rich VIP customer of the store, or is he? Things definitely heat up between ...more

I loved this story. It had angst, romance, humour, friendship and a really hot, alpha male.

Trinity Parker is a young woman who takes a job as at high end store called Voleur, in 5th avenue. Her job is to go through their books and help them figure out why they aren’t making as much money as they used to.

On her first day, she meets a mysterious man who, despite her denial, she’s drawn to but she doesn’t understand why.

What’s not to like about this book! You get a compelling storyline, romance, suspense, drama, mystery, and a few laughs.

Trinity Parker was hired to find out why Velour is not showing the profit that’s expected, despite the business volume. On her first day, she thinks she’s on to something. She’s pretty sure she’s going to apprehend a shoplifter, but to her surprise, the only thing in his pocket is a handful of condoms. She’s embarrassed and turned off by her assumption of this man.

Title: More Than A Pair of Pumps
Author: Alexandra Iff

4 unexpected stars



I’ve always enjoyed Alexandra Iff’s novels – she has that ability to take something we all have and make it bigger and oh so seductive. We all own shoes; we need them for just about everything we do, but when it comes to heels, we women have a tendency to do our research before buying the perfect one that will enhance just about all our greatest assets. So it’s no wonder that when Alexandra Iff creates the store Voleur, sh

Romance, Hot Alpha, Humor

I really enjoyed reading this book. It had a different storyline than what I'm used to reading.

The moment I go through that door frame feels like an eternity in itself. He is so near; I sense his breath on my neck; my first notion is of something hard digging into my lower back.

I won an ARC at the author's pre-release party for my honest opinion. I LOVED it. First, I love the cover and the title. It gave me something to think about while I read it--where does the title tie in? The first person character is 24 year old Trinity (great name) Parker who has come to NYC for a summer job reviewing the books of an exclusive retail store that has been losing money (or at least not showing a profit as expected). On her first day, she suspects two men who have been looking at Ro ...more

I absolutely loved this book. It was a little slow in the beginning but picked up quickly. Dimitri and Trinity are both strong characters with equally strong personalities. I loved that! That is a quality really hard to find. Drama, suspense and humor made this book even better (especially the humor and Trinity's comments). I love Alexandra's erotica but branching out with this book makes me love her even more. I totally fell in love with Dimitri DuPont mysterious man that he is. This is a must ...more

Trinity has been hired by Voleur to find out why such a large and reputable
company is not making as much money as there other stores.

First day on the job and Trinity meets hot, mysterious Dimitri, a player
from the start. Wrongly accusing him of stealing and embarrassing herself by
doing so, Trinity has just come to find out that Dimitri is a very valuable
customer and one that won't let her get away. When she discovers where the

First time reader of Alexandra. I loved this book as I like
the story line about two individuals who had a pretty rough childhood.
Trinity was hired by Voleur to find out why the company is not profiting. Dimitri is a confident and somewhat arrogant of a playboy who Trinity tries to fight her attraction towards him. They met in Voleur as she accused him of theft and was so embarrassed when she checks for the supposed stolen item in his pocket. Long pack

Love it, Love it, Love it!
Just the right amount of humor added to the adventure and mystery make this a five star read!
The main characters Tiffany and yummy Dimitri, steam up the pages of this romance. This book is a bit different from other books I have read by the author. There is a more vanilla relationship but no less chemistry.
I enjoyed the mystery aspect of the book that kept me intrigued throughout the story. The flow is excellent and I found it easy to read and enjoy.

I received this book for an honest review yesterday. I finished this book in a matters of hours as I devoured this story, I love have trinity is the "Nerdy girl"... the dynamic between trinity and DImitri was spectacular and I was up until 2 am reading this... I am slightly disappointed that it was a cliffhanger but I will be waiting in suspense to find out if Dimitri can find and claim Trinty as he should have...

Alexandra does it again. What a great love story with lots of twist and turns. Trinity meets a hot mysterious Dimitri. Thought out the whole story you wonder what does Dimitri do for a living at one time I thought I had it figured out but with the twists and turns boy was I wrong. This is a must read and can't wait for the next in this series!!!!

Twists and turns throughout! The excitement starts the moment Trinity starts working at Voluer to audit their books. Something funky is going on with their books and money and she's been hired to find out what. The mystery that surrounds everything Voleur is amazing and the ride to it's conclusion is wild! So recommend this wild and wonderful story.

I was gifted a copy of More Than Just a Pair of Pumps by Alexandra Iff for an honest review and I have to say " Thank You" to the author or PA that brought this to my attention. As soon as I read the first page around 9 p.m , I found myself not wanting to put it down it was around 3 a.m. and 75% of the story that I was taken in by sleep.

I loved Trinity and Dimitri's first meeting, I laughed so hard. I felt bad for her but at the same time I loved it. This story has tons of twists and turns but I was never disappointed. The characters are well developed and seem to jump off the page. I felt that at times the story seemed rushed and I would have liked smoother transitions.

This book had me laughing at some points. There were moments when I was so embarrassed for the heroine-Trinity-that I literally cringed and thought, please tell me no one does this in real life. She started out in my opinion as a pompous judgmental character. There were so many of her actions that had me sitting here with my eyebrows furrowed and a hand on my head scratching it thinking...are people really this dumb? Dimitri was hot at times and some of his actions were definitely hot, but I did ...more
