5 Hot. Hot. Hot. Stars!

Illicit and hot. If you're looking for a quick read, with instaLUST, and a hot alpha who doesn't come off as ridiculous unless you count RIDICULOUSLY HOT, then you need to read Caress.

Nora Heat once again brings the heat with this superstar model and her bodyguard romance. Chanel's father has hired Kobe to protect her after a string of bad bodyguards, and a rise in her celebrity status. He has also FORBIDDEN him from touching her. Not allowed to look at her unless it's to

They say when you're so stressed out in life and just needed an escape, the best thing to do is read a light hearted book, but I say, read a smutty one.

Now, I have been a Shanora Williams fan. Who wasn't? With her knacks of all things taboo and scorching scenes this bitch here is all heart eyes and grabby hands. She just can write about things that's so cringing yet yummy. So, with a novella? it's another story. It's not usually my cup of tea and I do admit I am usually picky. Intrigued by t

I loved this story—it is quick, hot, intense and naughty! It is a stress free read, one guaranteed to give stress relief, and create lots of steamy heat from the reading…
This is a novella about a hot bodyguard named Kobe who is older than his charge named Channel- she is model and she is being stalked. Chanel’s dad is overprotected so he hired the best to guard his little girl…but what he didn’t take into consideration was the connection and chemistry between his little girl and the hired bodygu

Sous ce pseudonyme se cache Shanora Williams, une auteure discrète mais efficace qui a une large palette de romances à son actif. Quand elle écrit sous ce nom, c’est essentiellement des romances courtes et érotiques. J’ai un peu hésité à ouvrir celle-ci car la première du genre m’avait un peu déçue. Non pas qu’elle était ratée mais ce format court et délibérément érotique laisse peu de place à la vraie relation amoureuse que je préfère largement.

Et j’ai bien fait de me lancer dans cette histoire

4.5 Hot n Sexy Stars

I LOVED Kobe and Chanel so much. This was another great addition to this series and I can't wait for the next one:)

If you like short, sweet n sexy, low drama and just a great HOT quick read then grab these novella's because they are great.

OK, so why not 5 stars, well, although it was short, I wanted and needed more in that Epilogue for sure!

Caress (A Nora Heat Novella)
By: Shanora Williams
4 Steamy Stars

I’m really enjoying these little Novella’s that Shanora Williams has been releasing. They are quick reads, straight up smut with a side of story.

Chanel is a top model. With an over the top Dad who will do anything to protect his little girl. Even though at her age, she is old enough to make decisions on her own, Daddy will always see Chanel as his little girl, one he needs to protect.

Kobe is the #1 bodyguard around. Flawless record

My first time reading this author, and it certainly won’t be my last.

This short, sexy, steamy novella is the kind of read I’d label, “Smart-Smut”. The characters are adult, the angst and nonsense level is low, and the situation our H & h find themselves in is closer to romantic fantasy than unbelievable farce.

Yes, the timeline is short, as per any Insta love treat, but everything else about this read is far from it. It’s well written, the characters multidimensional, and it is a hawwwt as a

Nora Heat knows how to bring the "heat" in his new read! It's hot. It's sexy. It's fun. It will keep you flipping the pages especially with the added moments of suspense. You'll want to know what happens between these two, and you'll love every minute!

The chemistry between Kobe and Chanel is off the pages! Loved this book! Can't wait for the next Nora Heat novella!

Can anyone say dirty alpha bodyguard??? Thoroughly enjoyed this latest Novella from Shanora Williams (aka Nora Heat). Chanel needs a firm hand and Kobe is the perfect guy to give it to her. Perfect combination of action, laughs, Insta lust and a great HEA made this a perfect lunch break read. Definitely recommend if you're looking for a quickie.

I received an ARC of this book.

Oh my. Shanora Williams certainly turns up the dirty dial to high with this naughty novella! An unmistakable attraction formed between client and bodyguard that is wildly sexy, wildly forbidden and wonderfully tender all at the same time.

Kobe taking on the likes of Chantal as his newest contract will definitely be more than he bargained for after his year-long hiatus. But the fierce bodyguard desperately tries to do his job despite his insatiable attraction to the super-model. The chemistry betw

The Nora Heat Collection just keep getting better and better. A quick steamy read filled with SMUT! Right up my alley.

Chanel is a young starlet, rising in the ranks with her modeling career. She is growing up, but her dad still see's her as his little girl. . . one that must be protected at all costs.

Kobe. . . Kobe, Kobe, Kobe..

I love this side of shanora williams (nora heat) because shes bringing all the heat with this fun read. Kobe is all hot and dominant and his words are just filthy that your panties will melt off ..

**************************
I loved when he put his hands on me—loved when he took from me without permission. Kobe did things to me that I used to dream of. He was the kind of man I craved—assertive, possessive, dominant, his hunger for me insatiable.

Quick, hot and dirty. Shanora Williams certainly knows how to spice up things with her deliciously naughty novellas – CARESS is no different. I might miss her darker side – yeah, I crave her twisted heroes – but I find myself enjoying these smutty little books more and more. And the steaminess seriously is off the charts! Just a tiny bit more and my ereader would combust!

Kobe, fierce, protective and alpha, is trying to overcome his past by taking on a new job after being on hiatus for so long. H

This book was okay. If you into insta-love, steamy reads that I guess you will love this. I just felt like their connection was just mostly physical and I wasn't really feeling the emotional aspects as much. Kobe's secret was pretty unsettling to me as well and if I had known what it was I might not have picked up this book. If you don't want to know what is was don't click on the spoiler! (view spoiler)

Caress by Nora Heat is a short, hot, and heartwarming story about an It girl and her bodyguard.

A forbidden romance filled with so much chemistry and heat, it'll burn your socks off.

When Kobe, as the most-wanted bodyguard in the industry, gets hired by Mr. Gooding, he never knew this would serve as his turning point.

Channel pushes his buttons like no other. It doesn't help that their attraction is sky high and reciprocated by both parties. On top of that, Mr. Gooding had made Kobe understand the

Hated it

I found myself within this book after reading another of hers that I really enjoyed. This? Not so much.
*SPOILERS*
Chanel is dumb AF. Seriously. This dummy had a recent incident with a previous body guard becoming a stalker. Inks not even dry on the restraining order and she’s trying to walk outside at night by herself to the corner store. She tells her new body guard, Kobe, that he’s not to follow her. And (SHOCKINGLY) she’s accosted by said ex body guard. The most ridiculous part was t
