Rule Number 1: Do Not Sleep with Clients
I was the best agent in the industry. More ruthless and cutthroat than any arrogant bastard you’d ever met.
The top actors in Hollywood came to me to get signed.
When I saw James Ryne, America’s Sweetheart, standing across the bar, I wanted her body like I’d never wanted anything before.
I broke rule number one.
But, after all, I was

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️! Signed (stand-alone). Scandal, deception & off-the-chart sex with hungry-mouth agent & his too young client!

“Don’t stop.”
I didn’t need an order to stay buried in her pussy. It was the only place I wanted to be right now.”

Signed (stand-alone) opens up to a night of best-sex-ever quickly derailed but Hollywood scandal for entertainment agent Brett Young and America’s sweetheart, actress James Ryne.

Story follows them during damage control of a tarnished image; so

Another DNF.

I’m still rating it, though, because I passed the 50% mark.

The beginning was good(ish) if you don’t mind annoying, immature heroines whose eyes widen when they see the hero’s BIG male reproductive organ.

I couldn't relate to the main characters. I didn’t feel their connection. It felt cheap and dirty and not in a good way. In fact, I didn’t feel anything. I wasn't even sorry for what happened to the heroine.

I decided to throw in the towel sometime after the two of them had s

Signed is the latest and greatest contemporary romance by one of my go-to authors Marni Mann. With scandal, passion, and forbidden romance, Ms. Mann offers a blockbuster hit that will captivate you with every turn of the page.

I read a new author (to me) and I loved it

Completely adored this story, it’s sweet with some angst, it captivated me from the start, and this story gives you happiness in all forms, mostly in the form of an handsome talent agent that I couldn't get enough of

I fell in love with Brett Young & James Ryne. I'm a sucker for these Hollywood stories, all the drama, the sex, the love, the lust, the lies, and of course the sexy ass men in

This is everything I hate in a book and then, some.

The heroine, James, is a celebrity, actually America's sweetheart. The hero, Brett, is an agent working for celebrities. She is 18, he is 30. When she is 18, I don't like her with a man so mature.

Despite her young age, she makes the first move in a bar. She goes home with him that night. When he leaves town, she calls him

Marni Mann has signed, sealed and delivered one of 2018’s most explosive Hollywood romance. Signed was decadent, sinful, hot, sexy, and tastefully erotic . This book had me wanting, craving, and begging more of this specific genre from Marni Mann. How could I not devour this book when it involves an older man and America’s Sweetheart who happens to be 18 years old. Yes, the angst, lust, sexual attraction, passion, intensity, and chemistry w

Well this was one sexy glamorous treat! Who doesn’t love a good Hollywood story? The glitz, the glamor, the scandal, and the major comeback? It all goes down in tinsletown. How could you not love anything like that and throw in a forbidden romance as well, and I can already hear the script being written.

It surely has been a while since my last novel by Marni Mann. I know she has been releasing new stuff but, since I am not much into dark romance, I waited until she released a new contemporary romance. And of course, she did amazingly well! I mean who does not love a good Hollywood-themed love story? I am definitely not complaining!

Signed is Marni's new standalone novel and it tells the forbidden love story between a kickass entertaiment agent and the newest America's sw

I loved it!! This book had it all; drama, suspense, sexy times, and a little bit of angst. I had so much fun reading it, I couldn’t put it down.

Brett was so sexy! So alpha yet so caring. James was so down to earth and kind. I really liked her. Together they were dynamite. The chemistry and the steam was off the charts!

This was my first book by this author but it sure won’t be my last. I can’t wait to read more of her work!

Male narrator – 1 cringeworthy Star

Story – dnf @ 65%

The story involves a 30-year-old talent agent and an 18-year-old coming of age American sweetheart actress. Between the age difference and professional relationship, the story has a great taboo vibe to it. Unfortunately, the male narrator’s voice and performance changed the vibe of this sexy taboo-esque story to creepy old, pervy

If you’re a fan of erotic novels with a hint of taboo, buy this book! It’s hot as hell and sexy AF! Level 10 flames, folks!

I think Brett has ruined me for all others! Holy hotness, this book was everything I ever wanted! Sexy, intriguing, well written, and surprising in the very best way. Marni Mann has exceeded all expectations and gained a new fan.

The age gap is what initially drew my interest and led to my late-night purchase, but the story is just fucking amazing. It’s original and some

“You’d be a fool not to take her on."

18-year-old James Rynn , leading Hollywood actress has been out of the spotlight for a fair few months after a raw break-up from her childhood co-star and boyfriend of 5 five years. She’s used to the spotlight. She’s used to stardom and scrutiny. But she’s never been under as much of it until now, newly single, still in pain but as always, striding on with a brave face, even in the face of humiliation. Showing her face for the first ti

All we’d shared was a kiss.

A fun erotic romance read with hot hot hot naughty bits. If anyone ever tries to tell you that Mari Mann doesn’t write some of the best smut, then they are liars. Of course this is truly a story about a starlet who is down and out after a scandal, and her new agent, but the plot is so much more interesting and fun than that. I didn’t expect to love the story so much. I’d label this more a contemporary erotic romance, since the story is so good!

All in all a great read.

“You’d be a fool not to take her on.”

It is no secret I am a huge fan of Marni Mann. From the first time that I read her first book many, many moons ago I just clicked with her writing style and she has become a firm favourite. The more this author writes, the more I fall in love and no matter the genre she puts her mind to, she always delivers. After a run of dark reads, Marni Mann has changed it up and delivered an extremely swoon worthy contemporary
“I’m going to fucking devour you.”

Oooh girl! Brett Young was a BEAST in Marni Mann’s latest standalone erotic romance, SIGNED! This was my very first Marni Mann romance, and I gotta say, WHAT AN INTRODUCTION it was! I loved it so hard! Brett and James’ angst-filled, sexy as sin romance is right up my alley when it comes to this genre! SIGNED hit all my buttons and then some! It flowed so quickly for me, and it made me feel EVERYTHING that these characters were feeling…I felt like I DEVOURED

You'd be a fool not to take her on
Because she's 18, nubile, beautiful, talented, Americas sweetheart-James Ryne. Her career is on the climb. Big Brand ads, endorsements, fashion houses vying for her attention. She's the proverbial Cinderella having the ball of her life .......and then the clock strikes 12 !!!
The shoe slips and her crown is gone, her glitter is gone, her carriage is gone, her Prince is gone and she's in tatters, hiding under her clothes in the back of her closet.

DNF. Stupid. James is stupid 18 year old but author also must be stupid. If someone treats you like garbage then man handles you with half assed apology when your life had imploded then two seconds later he screws you on conference table while a bunch of people wait for you is more stupid then I can waste my time on. page 76 is as far as I could go.......
