I read Something Borrowed by this author and really enjoyed Elle's sarcastic humour, the only reason I didn't love the book was Elle was a Domme and hot sexy Jackson begging to come was just too much for me.

But this book I couldn't resist, Elle's sarcasm vs Jackson's mother, I know who my money's on.

Knowing Elle from the previous book I have to say this wasn't quite the book I expected. I assumed it would start with Valeraine arriving and it would be her and Elle at each other with Jackson

Title: ➳Something Else
Author: ➳Eve Dangerfield

➦Once you get past the Australian slang, Great sequel for Something Borrowed.

➦Now 2 years later we find Elle & Jackson living together, as you might remember in Something Borrowed Elle dominating presence in the bedroom with Jackson. But she also had anger issues

➦Lets just say that Elle anger issues were under control in this book. But Elle dominating presence in the bedroom with Jackson had grew stronger, until mommy dearest came to visit.

It's definitely worth checking out Something...

In Eve Dangerfield's Acknowledgements, she thanks her readers for taking a risk on her books that push against romance readers boundaries (or something like that). Well, I'd like to thank her back, for pushing me past my boundaries and helping me enjoy it.

Something Else takes us on a little trip to catch up with Elle and Jackson from Something Borrowed. Both Elle and Jackson are still blissfully in love and now living happily together. But...there

This broke my heart. I was in the mood for something angsty with a definite HEA and this absolutely delivered. I found the conflict believable and heartbreaking an in some parts very close to home (I am not having the easiest time with my in-laws at the moment), but thought it was manageable enough that I didn't want the relationship to crash and burn.

Stripped of all her other roles, the woman in the mirror was primal, powerful, and yeah, beautiful.

Eve Dangerfield is an author I would say "Hell, yeah!" or more like "Yasssssss!" without knowing what I'm getting myself into. So seriously speaking, this book is like a treat as much as a surprise for me.

Something Else is the sequel to Something Borrowed. So better read that one first before diving into this because, seriously, you wouldn't appreciate nor enjoy this book if you

Something Else is dessert for everyone who read Something Borrowed and wanted more of Elle and Jackson. If you haven't read Something Borrowed, but angry heroines laying down sexytimes rules to heroes are your jam, what are you waiting for? No, really. It is fun. It is sexy. Most importantly, it is refreshing. You will not regret it. GO READ IT. Ill wait here. With dessert.

My god. Picture the worst mother in law you can think of then double it.. then add a dash of annoying haughty bitch.. then you have Jackson's mum.

This little short nugget was centered around Elle and Jackson after their hate-love affair from Something Borrowed it's two years into their relationship now and the monster in law is staying with them.

This novella is the continuation of Elle and Jackson's story, a few years later from Something Borrowed. They are a happy couple, living together and in love. But the storm will hit the paradise. Jackson really loves Elle. He wants more, but he is afraid to show her...He knows her too well.

Great sequel for Something Borrowed. Elle and Jackson have been together two years and everything is wonderful. Then Jacksons sly drama queen mother comes visit

As always I loved this authors writing style, its very fluent and well written, almost like I was there. It was great visit Elle and Jackson and see that they really got their HEA after the difficulties (ie the mother!)

A deliciously ragey, sexy treat for fans of Elle and Jackson from Something Borrowed. This was the maniacally mad, funny and tender epilogue of all epilogues, answering that question for the ages: Can you have a HEA when you effing hate his mother?

The author was a new discovery for me last year and this year, I have also discovered that no one writes rage and control issues quite like Eve Dangerfield. I would read a whole series by her about ragey, touchy, bossy, unapologetic women who just

Eeeeek! I loved this! Something Else is the follow on to Something Borrowed and gives us a glimpse into Ellie and Jackson's future.

It's a quick read, but still has that heat and intensity that Eve Dangerfield is so good at bringing! She certainly has a knack for writing this genre, because daaaaaaaamn!

Now, aside from the super sexy times, there's also a bit of drama, and that drama is in the form of Jackson's mother. Man, she is a piece of work, that's for sure. Having come for a visit, she ends

LOOOOVE. The novel that first gave me Elle and Jackson really made me love the couple because of their love-hate relationship that only escalated at her bff's wedding week, and Elle was a refreshing heroine to read about when it came to her slight anger issues and dominating presence in the bedroom. She was hysterical in Something Borrowed, and Something Else- despite being less than half the size of the novel -only seemed to

Well I love this author and her work. She really does push some boundaries and for that I will always be a fan,

Something ele gives us a great well written wonderful story that gets us all caught up with Elle and Jackson.

Yes I love Elle from the very beginning in Something Borrowed and I love her even more on this one. Jackson and her are fabulous together. This book brings on the MIL from hell and gives Elle a run for her money but you have to read this to find out what happens.

A Short and Sweet quick read that picks up after Something Borrowed. Jackson and Elle are more in love than ever and are now living together. But when Jackson's mother comes to stay she proves to be the Mother in Law from hell. It starts to put their relationship under strain, and they have to fight hard for their relationship.

A quick Sultry and Sexy read with plenty of evil mother in law moments, this woman is really the mother in law from hell. A very enjoyable read.

Sexy, steamy, hot.....and then the Mother-In-Law arrives

I love Elle and Jackson in SOMETHING BORROWED. So, when given the chance to read another story with these two wonderful characters, there was simply no way i was going to turn that one down. SOMETHING ELSE lived up to all of my expectations, it was humorous, witty, sexy, tearful, but above all it was another brilliant piece of writing from Ms Dangerfield.

SOMETHING ELSE is a short novel that brings in the dramas of the mother-in-law from

Loved! Jackson and Elle's love story in Something Borrowed was quite the "trip" (destination wedding trip LOL) and this follow-up novella was "CRAZY"! Great writing Eve Dangerfield .

Elle and Jackson are hosting Jackson's mother and she has completely overstayed her welcome. Elle's strength is highlighted in her amazing ability to keep her mouth shut and not slap the living day lights out of the woman. Anyone who has ever had to deal with a mother-in-law who clearly didn't think you were good

After reading Something Borrowed, the beginning of Elle and Jackson's story, I couldn't wait to climb back on the saddle and experience their brand of kink once again in Something Else. It wasn't long until Eve Dangerfield had me wrapped up in their teacher/student fantasy and their angst with Jackson's mother.

Elle Sahlstrom has me just as fascinated with her strong domme persona and her fragile inner beauty as she did in Something Borrowed. I

I am soo happy Jackson and Elle got a novella. I fell in love with them and their umconventional love in Something Borrowed.
This novella picks up years after their best friends wedding and brings new challenges ahead, one in the form of an evil french monster in law.

I've said it before and i will say it again, i freaking love the heroines that Eve writes. They kick ass!! This novella was short and sweet, just perfect.

I recommend you to read Something Borrowed before you read this Novella.

Jackson and Ellie are made for one another and this book only improves on that!

Remember Elle and that gorgeous Frenchman Jackson from Something Borrowed? This is a delicious little novella follow on showing their lives two years later living together when the mother in law visits.

Omg. I'm, so glad the mother in law is fictional, she is possibly the worst mother in law I've ever read about ( brilliantly written, I adore a great antagonist to hate and Eve delivers this perfectly ) she has a somewhat redeeming at the end ( you have to squint to see it ) What kind of mother

This takes place in the time from the end of and Epilogue to Something Borrowed,so it makes sense to have read it before this novella,so you have an idea of who Elle and Jackson are-and the nature of their relationship.I did enjoy this much like I did with the previous book,there was still DUAL POV,some hot scenes between both character's,which resulted in an amusing 'caught in the act',with Jackson's mother-who has outstayed her welcome in their home.The frustrations that Elle has,along with ...more

I would recommend reading Something Borrowed first before this .

Elle and Jackson like to role play. His mom is staying with him and that interferes with his life. Elle doesn't like it. Elle been called crazy all her life, she likes to be in charge.

This was a short read. The only thing is while reading I noticed words that needed spaces between them and got in touch with Eve about it. Overall a quick read!

Eve Dangerfield has loved romance novels since she first started swiping her grandmothers paperbacks. Now she writes her own sexy tales about complex women and gorgeous-but-slightly-tortured men. Her work has been described as the defibrillator contemporary romance needs right now, and not by herself, or even her mum, but OTHER PEOPLE.
