Ahhhh....This book.

I would call this novel a hybrid of chick lit, erotica and romance, and it tries to nail the key points of all three genres, but does not do any of them 100% successfully.

What it had going for it - The writing is solid, the editing well done, and that cover, well, lets just say that was the main reason I wanted to read this book, it looked sexy, it looked fun. Unfortunately what lets this book down is the story and the characters.

My favorite thing about blogging?? Getting review requests from an author you didn't know about and falling in love with their writing. As a blogger we take chances when agreeing to review a book from an author we've never read before. And when that turns into finding a new author to's the best feeling ever.

I Loved this book!

Haylee Holloway is planning to enter law school in the fall. The last years have been tough. Her dad died a few years ago and she lost her mom recently. Her parents' deaths, so close together triggered some dark places for Haylee, but she's ambitious and is determined to follow her dreams. She's been assisting Warren Carlyle (a real sleeze) as his general "go for" as a means to make money. When one of the models shows up late and with a major attitude things

“Josh Singer was attracted to me. And I’d just agreed to move to New York to work for him.”

Following the deaths of both of her parents, twenty-two-year-old Stanford graduate Haylee Holloway was starting over in LA as an assistant in an advertising agency while she saved money to attend law school. Still grieving the loss of her father five years earlier followed by her mother just a year before, this is a young woman very much immersed in grief; she’s functioning and coping, but she’s really o

Haylee and Josh sucked me in right from the beginning. The opening scene which is the catalyst to their first meeting and subsequent new working arrangements was cute and light-hearted.

Josh is rather refreshing in that he didn’t always fit the typical contemporary romance hero mold. He’s both in control and vulnerable at the same time. He has his flaws, but they make him seem real. His character comes with a few twists/reveals, one rather unique, that were intriguing to read as they un

Tell Me Something is the first book in the Something series by Aubrey Bondurant and is a great read! This is the second book I have read by Aubrey and her style of writing flows easily and the storyline kept me hooked and wanting to know more about this made for each other couple. The secondary characters were just as entertaining and had me laughing and crying right along with them.

Great read! The author's style of writing flows and the storyline kept me wanting to know more about the couple and the strong secondary characters that have me looking forward to future reads.

I really enjoyed this book. Both of the main characters were very strong and I loved them, insecurities and all, they were just perfect together. There were also some wonderful supporting characters and I shall look forward to reading their stories as they are published. I had not read this author before but I would definitely read her again.

Aubrey Bondurant wrote a fantastic story with Tell Me Something (Something Series Book 1). I loved Haylee and Josh (Mr. Singer). While they each battled with their own personal issues they decided to give in to the sexual tension (not before josh called his friend and lawyer Mark though). The whole story is great and it made me cry quite a few times and I did laugh out loud a few times as well. There’s something about a mouth, witty woman who does stuff to get a reaction out of a man that I love ...more

Sweet and intense, you could never go wrong with that. I liked the story eventhough there's a few "but" in them.
1. But where the plot has gone after all their many sexual encounters?
2. But their endless issue with trust has been going on in circles up until the end.
3. But it feels like the author lacked a smooth sailing ending come the few last chapters.
But, there's a good "but" too
1. But Josh is my kind of alpha male through and through.
2. But the epilogue is something you will look forward to

Tell me is the first book in the Something series, by Aubrey Bondurant. I hadn’t read any of this authors work before and I am really glad that I have, because this book is really excellent. It seduced me from the beginning and held me captivated, the whole way through. It is a contemporary/ Office romance.

I had a good time reading this story. I’d say it was a mixture of That Man series meets the Cross Fire series.

While both main characters were likable and their chemistry together was good, they had quite a few immature attitudes that drove me close to violence a couple of times.

Haylee is saving up for law school. Josh is the CEO of a company with lots of interests, one of which is an advertisement firm where Haylee is employed as a PA. When the model they had contracted for a photo shoo

I came upon this book by chance. The author posed a question here on Goodreads, and to answer it adequately, I needed to know something about the book. Going to Amazon, I read the free sample and was intrigued enough to buy it. I’m glad I did. Romance isn’t a genre I’m that familiar with, so I don’t feel I can write a review that will convey much to readers who are. But I do think the author deserves a note of thanks for writing this book, so that’s what this is.

Haylee Holloway saw this job as a means to help her save for law school, yet she never imagined how much this one job would change her life.

After what his ex-wife did to him, Josh Singer has realized he doesn't want to do a relationship ever again. But when he lays eyes on Haylee, he knows he has to get her in his life, even if it means bribing her to come work for him.

As Haylee and Josh start a whirlwind romance, I couldn't help but feel for Haylee because, as hard as she tried to not let her

TELL ME SOMETHING a very hot, sensual read. It will suck you in and not let you go until the book is done. The characters and story line are very well-developed. When Haylee's star model decides that she wants more money and that she can only do an hour of photo shots, when she is scheduled for four hours. They tell her she is in breach of contract and the model leaves. Haylee then has to step in as the model. This gets the atten

Attention all romance readers!!

If you want the kind of read that leaves you with that mushy feeling for days, put down whatever you're doing and read this story.
It's been a while since I can say a romance novel has left me with this kind of impression. I want to gush, I want to OMG I loved it when... but I will restrain myself so as not to ruin the story for you all. All I can say is read it. You won't be disappointed.
I can't wait for the next instalment.

this is the first book for this author that I have read and I have to say that I am highly impressed with her writing from begging to end. The story is captivating and refreshing at the same time as it is intriguing. How the story of Haylee and Josh began to where the story ended will captivate even the coldest of hearts. Loved their story.
