Lisa Eugene delivers a great, emotional story filled with a little bit of everything – suspense, mystery, action and steam. This one isn't my favorite book read by this author, but I liked it and enjoyed Lisa’s storytelling and engaging writing very much. If you are a fan of enemies to lovers stories, with lots of conflict and turmoil, then you should consider reading this compelling story.

➳The synopsis gives you a thrilling understanding to the sexy and smoldering story one reads in this compelling novel. However, you do not get the messages hidden behind this wonderful story and its plot. It starts off by providing the insight story of Danielle Carmichael, a 26 year old single mother of an 8 year old daughter named Emily, who has been diagnosed with autism. As a single mo ...more
This cover is OK. The man on the cover is a good representation of the hero found within. Interesting typography for the title but the composition and placement of the other text feels off.
I enjoyed this one, but I did not LOVE it. It started out really good for me but about halfway through I began to lose interest. There seemed to be just a little too much going on (Dani's ex. Chase's secret. The Thailand stuff. The Senator.) it just started to get too convoluted for me.
I liked Dani at the begi ...more

it’s me after reading this book.
Strong biracial heroine. Beautiful tough warrior. Devoted mother.
I absolutely, without any doubt, completely and undeniably adored her!
“Shit happens. I deal with it.”
Requires strong nerves and E-reader with hard-cover.
This was my second book by Lisa Eugene of course I loved her previous book "Grayson" this one unfortunately not as much.
"By appointment only" had me with mix feelings, I loved it at first the whole concept of a forbidden romance with a politician is pretty intriguing. When Chase/Danielle first meet they don't like each other and assume the wrong opinion of each other. But as they keep meeting they start to feel an attraction that soon becomes these private appointments. I have to say ...more
This was my first book by Lisa Eugene and I enjoyed it. I liked hero more than heroine. She was too much stubborn and proud for my taste. But it was a good reading.
Danielle is a single mother. Her eight-years-old daughter, Emily, is autistic. But she is a wonderful and talented girl. Dani is struggling to pay bills but she is a fantastic mother and does everything for Emmy. Emmy attends to an Academy that’s for children with special needs. The owner of this Academy is Chase Rutherford. ...more
An intense, emotional, full of twists novel!! Once again the author created a unique, yet a quite realistic story, where you can get sucked in and live the story alongside with the characters.
Besides the suspense, the mystery and the intensity.. the uncommon romance between the characters really won me, it was something fresh and different from what I'm used to reading which was evolving steadily throughout the story.
Our characters Chase and Dani have a great chemistry a ...more
I read this book in one sitting.
Ever since I got my hands on Grayson by Lisa Eugene, I knew I wouldn't miss out on reading her books in the future. She is a very talented writer that never disappoints.
Full review to come...
By Appointment Only was quite a bit different from other books I've read by Lisa Eugene. I've always been drawn to her tendency to write books with some sort of medical or psychological background. Some suspense, others angsty emotional. This book, although it has a psychological diagnosis of autism in the heroine's child, was more smutty than the other tropes I've read by her. So fans of steam over all else will gravitate more towards this book I suspect.
Our heroine, Danielle Carmich ...more
Filled with so much humor, mystery, danger, hot sex and really unexpected plot twists, it makes this a truly inspiring story of overcoming everything that stands in the way of true love!
What a fun, fresh 'Billionaire meets Cinderella-like' page turner- read!
Dani and Chase are two extremely different people in every way, on every level ... absolute opposites, and instant dislike vibes that slowly turn to lo ...more
OK, so I seem to be in the minority and that's ok but this was just not an enjoyable or a memorable read for me:( Sorry, my reading standards and preferences are set pretty high and for me they were just not met in this book and again, that's my own feelings based on my own reading issues.
This may not have been good for me BUT it may be a great read to others. I didn't relate to the characters together BUT yet I did separately if that makes sense and I didn't like some of the f ...more
OMG! This book is amazing, I actually started this book last night and what can I say, this book out beats the charm out of most romance book. Danielle has some bite and she is thrown by a lot things. She just can't seem to get her head of above ground. Her daughter's school is calling about a meltdown, her hag face of a boss is breathing down her neck to get to work or be fired, so what is Danielle to do!
Oh yes, it's go to the school to pick up her daughter and tell off the owner of the presti ...more
The first and second parts of this book were really different from one another. In a way, this worked. But in a way, I think I wanted a little more from each.
Dani took a little bit for me to like her. Chase, the same. And, by the time I had finally decided I liked them, and was engaging with the story, the reveal happened that took us into the second part of the book. I think I would have liked a little more time spent with them after w ...more
I could hardly put this one down! I was drawn right in and wonderfully carried along and wrung out in every possible good way! This is more than just a sexy read (it certainly is that, too). I loved this intriguing and intens ...more
Absolutely LOVED this!
My body shuddered with uncontrollable ecstasy, the kind that leaves you stunned and just a tiny bit scared.
Ever since her book Grayson, I've been on the lookout for anything Lisa Eugene writes. Her heroes are complicated and overflow with emotional depth. This story is another amazing read! Chase (swoon) is the brooding, sexy, older man (43) who is hiding aBIG secret. Throughout the story you see how tortured he is, and Ms. Eugene does f ...more
Chase Rutherford is a millionaire who's running for mayor of NYC and owns the special needs school that Danielle Carmichael's daughter attends. Things don't start off well for these two but she always keeps her weekly 6pm Tuesday appointment with him. It's clear that he wants her so why won't he touch her? Full of twists and turns, intrigue, suspense, lies and deceit as well as love, hot sex and friendship this well written book has it all. The sheer despair th ...more
ARC received in exchange for an honest review
Danielle is a single mother and she is unemployed because her daughters school called to say that she is causing a disturbance and needs to be fetched. Danielle's daughter is autistic and attends a special fancy school with qualified teachers, so why are they calling her to pick up her daughter.
When she arrives she finds out that the owner of the school and also running for mayor of NY Chase Rutherford (Rutherfucker, lol) is visiting and her ...more
Lisa Eugene began writing as a way to mentally escape from the hectic medical world where she has been a practicing nurse for over twenty years. She loves to incorporate her medical background into her steamy, romantic reads. Her books are fast paced, emotional roller-coasters---and her fans always enjoy the ride.
When she's not plotting her next dangerous, fast-paced, sexy adventure, you can find ...more
