I'm in hiding.

As a bestselling BDSM author, I know all too well the danger of letting people get too close.

I've spent my entire life keeping people at arm’s length, until her. Kiki Smith is simply supposed to be my new cover designer, but before I know it, she starts breaking down the walls I've worked so hard to erect.

She's unlike any woman I've ever met and before I’m

5 Stars - 3 Flames

My My My! If you're an avid reader and maybe even stalk, I mean follow, a few Authors, you're going to LOVE this book. This could be a true story for all I know (looks over at the author with a grin - yep, I'm gonna start rumors).

Kiki is a virgin mother. Totally weird, right? Yep, but that's her story to tell you. She's also a very well known book cover graphic designer for authors. Between juggling her career and a five year old daughter, her libido has finally caught up to

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.
This is a quick little read but packed full of hotness, secrets and some laughter.
Kiki is a graphic designer who designs book covers for authors. she has a great career and a wonder family. However, because of her small family she is guarded, protective, and not willing to put her heart out there again. really she has the greatest friend a girl could want. Chaz is her BFF and he only wants the best for Kiki. He had me cracking up in this story

Whew! For such a short read, On A Whim packed a hell of a sexy punch. Bo Layden. B. Vesper. He's both. He's a best-selling BDSM author. He's a cover model. But no one knows he's both, thanks to some stalker fans in his past who harassed him. And he's never been tempted to tell anyone his secret until he meets Kiki, his new cover designer and the woman he's intrigued by before he ever meets her in person.

I loved On A Whim. Kiki and Bo are seriously sexy together from their very first interaction.

OMG! I absolutely loved this story! Author falling in love with his cover designer what more could you want! Oh yeah, hot kinky sex to go along with it! Bo and Kiki are absolutely wonderful. Being new characters in JM's world, they don't disappoint. They are hot, sexy and all the above! This was an amazing story! And I can't wait to read what is in store for us next!


I voluntarily agreed to read this book and this is my honest review!

On a Whim may is a quick read with a heat level that's off the charts.
Model/writer meets cover designer and sparks fly.
I love, love, LOVED this novella from beginning to end.
The author packs quite a story into such a small package, I was glued to the pages and wished I had more when I got to the last page!
Fast paced, well written and sexy as hell? Yes please.

A solid 4.5⭐️

I’m not sure I’m a fan of novellas as I don’t feel like we get a whole lot of time to get invested in a storyline and this one just seemed to be about nothing more than sex.

While it was a HOT read, I was left wanting that little bit more. The storyline seemed far too predictable to me but overall I did enjoy the book.

Oh holy hotness! Yes please! This is a fun but HAWT read. Kiki is a virgin mother who is a graphic designer. (you’ll have to read the book to find out why *haha*) and she is contacted by B. Vesper to design new covers. She fangirls so hard! While Kiki is working with B’s model, Bo, things start to get flirty and then really hot. Neither of them seem to be able to control themselves but they both have secrets. Some are a little more severe than others. As it is a novella it is a pretty short read ...more

Got to love a story that is based in our beloved book world! This is a story of author and cover artist falling for each other. I loved that we got new characters from JM and I feel in love with them all! If you love JM, this won't disappoint. And if you have yet to read her, get ready to fall in love with her and her writing!

I loved this book, to me its a refreshing new view of romance. The main character is a Romance author who is male and book cover designer who is female. I know there have been many male romance writers but this is the first time I've read a romance about one!

I found the book to be refreshing, entertaining, and as an avid reader of JM Walkers I always love the depths of her characters. Even the side characters grasp my interest and I would love to read more about Kiki's world and friends. J.M. Wa

A perfect, sexy quick read

Kiki is a cover designer, a single mom and an almost 30 year old virgin.
Bo is a BDSM author looking to reinvent himself by redoing all of his covers. When he looks for someone new, he stumbles upon Kiki.
Since trust isn't something that comes easily to either one, masks get put on to hide their true selves and their true feelings.
Professionalism is always hard when feelings become involved.
But when those masks need to come off, where does that leave a cover model, an

Yummy!

Another quick HAF read by this author! Bo has had his fingers burned, as an author he has been screwed over by a cover designer and needs a new one.
Kiki's details get emailed to him by a friend and they start chatting via messenger. There appears to be a spark between them and once they actually meet.....Flames!!!
Be still my heart!!

A whole lot of HOT in a little book! I loved this story, because it seemed very realistic! Kind of reminds me of a book signing I went to! Kiki and B start out very professional, they just worked well together, then Bo the cover model steps in and the heat turns up! An Amped up quick read you don't want to miss!

Hot & sweet!

This is the first book I’ve read by JM Walker and it definitely won’t be the last.
I loved the premise of the book and devoured in a only a few hours.
Kiki & Bo were entertaining. Seeing them meet, flirt, and finally fall in love was awesome!

For a quick read it was hot and sexy as all hell!! JM Walker sure knows what she's doing when it comes to writing this little number.
Indie author falls in love with a cover designer and cover designer falls hard for the indie author what more could you want!

So much more than 5 stars! Could not stop reading

In true JM Walker fashion she nailed this one! The chemistry between the two was off the charts, surprised my kindle didn't explode. If you enjoyed Torn or Parker Reed series you will love this smoker!

A fun read about a graphics designer with trust issues who creates book covers for authors. Author B. Vesper & his cover model Bo are about to go on there first signing but there is one problem. Author B. Vesper has a secret that is difficult to reveal due to his past trust issues. When B. Vesper (Bo) becomes a client of single mom Kiki a whirlwind of desire explodes between these two. A cheery, sinfully delicious, packed with humour, & a bit risqué story that keeps you captivated until the end. ...more
