The woman's killing me.

I'm not the kind of man who would normally even consider blurring the lines between landlord and tenant or boss and employee, but Summer is a walking temptation. Neurotic and obsessive when it comes to work details, sure, but a damn cute temptation nevertheless.

She's been a good tenant and an even better worker. Plus, she doesn't simper or throw hers

2.5 eye-rolling stars.

Naive 30-year-old virgin...commencing eye-roll now.

My eyes started to hurt after awhile.

Summer is just SO innocent that she WHOOPS forgets to put pants on and goes running around her apartment building and knocking on her boss's door at two in the morning.

Seriously? I actually laughed out loud when I read that. It was within the first few pages too, but I kept on going.

Honestly, Summer is so naive. HOW did this woman grow up in a male dominated field, pushing her way t
I did enjoy this short and sweet story. It was a billionaire boss/employee storyline which I like.
-no cheating
-no ow/om drama whatsoever - no mention of the hero's past
-a little to much dancing around each other for my liking (over 50%)
-a few steamy scenes
-lackluster epilogue that was only a few months out, so just a HFN ending
-a mention of a couple characters that may be future heroes?? The one I'm worried about is a single dad who lost his wife (high school sweetheart) I probably will shy aw

**3.5 Stars**

This was quickly shaping up to be at least a 4-4.5 stars read for me, but two mental sentences ruined it, and both were in the same intimate scene. While I know the heroine being a virgin was an integral part of the story, and I understand why that had to be the case, we did not need to be reminded the Hero was not. Two lines, two unnecessary - or could've been written differently lines. Nutshelling here - One thinking how she gave him the best hand job he'd ever had and the other s

3 1/2 to 4 stars

Some parts of this book were fun and hilarious.

That being said, there were some aspects that I found unrealistic and/or that had me sighing out loud and shaking my head with the silliness.

Thankfully, the things that I enjoyed about this tale helped me to get past some of that.

For the most part, I found Jason and Summer's interactions rather sweet and funny, and I wasn't taking the whole thing too seriously.

The best way to describe this book is that it feels like a cute, comedic

3.5 stars

I really did enjoy this, I just didn't feel the OTT insta-lust/love in the beginning like the rest of the book made it seem like it was. It was a little disproportionate. It would have been a full 4 stars if it had that element in the first few chapters.
No way this woman is 30 (and a virgin, btw). The way she behaves and talks, her impossible naïveté when she has spent so much time working with blokes on a construction site?
Just doesn't make sense. So: she can build a whole house from the ground up, still lusts madly after the hero and is a tomboy virgin. Eek.
Then we have dirty talk and, my pet hate, the word "cum for ejaculate/semen. He commands "come" and she does. Like a good dog. Ah- no.
If you like a rough and tumble sex romp, this one's

I absolutely loved Show Me Yours by Sasha Burke. It was a quick, fun, and so very sexy read that had me laughing out loud. Usually quick reads do not give you a lot of character background, however, I loved this story and the characters and really felt a connection to them.

Jason hired Summer to lead a major construction project because he believed in her abilities. She was strong, dependable, and very knowledgeable, but she was also petite, beautiful and quite the temptress, without even realiz

I liked the lack of drama in this one and usually I like drama. The characters were both more on the mature side compared to a lot of romance novels, which sometimes drives me nuts. It was also short and sweet which makes for a nice easy fast read. One thing that got me was the whole virgin thing at what was she 30? That seems a little farfetch'd in my opinion. Summer and Jason were both likable enough characters even if Summer seemed a tad crazy sometimes. Their story was easy to read and kept ...more
Swoon worthy hero; funny, quirky heroine.

Show Me Yours is all about Jason and Summer, how they deal/avoid each other all while he is the boss and she is a contractor.

Oh and did I mention Jason is a millionaire?? I absolutely loved this book!!!

If you are looking for a hot hero, a heroine who can hold her own, this is the book to read!!!

Totally Charmed

What a fun, fun romance! And, what a very nice surprise. The author created a charmingly nerdy heroine who is a bit socially clueless, but she is not TSTL. She is actually very likeable and capable. The hero is gruff but loveable. The dialogue is delightful, and I was utterly charmed by this whole story.

Show Me Yours is Sasha Burke's debut book! And i LOVED it!! It was a quick, sexy, fun read. So many laugh at loud moments! Another thing I LOVED is that usually with such short, quick books, you don't get all the depth of the characters, However that's not true with Show Me Yours. I felt the author gave us FANTASTIC insight to all the characters.

I LOVED the story of Jason and Summer. Their chemistry is HOT! And the sexual tension, SCORCHING!!

I LOVED Summer's character. She's, sexy, funny, qu

I need my sleep, or I am kind of meanie … very short after no sleep the hubby knows that. let the woman sleep. duh! many moments are pure laughter. I will be checking more out from Sasha soon enough.

a great quick read. Loved the laid back vibe. loved Summer, she's a hard worker, yeah maybe a little much but it's her character, just like Jason he's strong hard working, but both are fighting a temptation they aren't sure they should act on. Loved this story and the characters, looking forward to the next one. ...more

First off I will say that the title of this book on my kindle/Amazon is 'Bare Ass in Love' which was free at the time of purchase, I say this because I probably wouldn't have downloaded it if 'Hot Billionaire Landlord' was in the title... then again, maybe I'll put 'Bare Ass' on my not-to-read list as well

So... onto the review...

I've read my fair share of smut and some of it has been good... unfortunately this one is what I class as an eye roller

I've been on a dry spell with romcoms lately and while this one isn't necessarily listed as that, my dry spell is broken. There were so many laugh out loud moments in Show Me Yours. Jason and Summer's inner dialogue is as hilarious and witty as their conversations. This couple has such great chemistry and when things heat up between this pair, it is scorching hot. This debut by Sasha Burke is very well-written with a fast pace and great flow. It's sweet, sexy, funny, romantic, low on angst, and ...more

Very nice! This was my first book by this author but I'm very impressed and can't wait to read more. I admit I was a little apprehensive when the description mentioned "insta-love" which I don't have a problem with at all but have not had a good experience with lately. Sometimes you just want a quick read but often a quick read can also mean sexy but not well-written. I didn't have that experience with Show Me Yours. Can't wait to read more by Sasha Burke! ...more
I really enjoyed this book. It was such a sweet, and at times hot romance between the most unlikely of people. I loved that the author gave me something different then just the standard billionaire and virgin romance. There was a decent back story and the characters felt well developed. I was so happy to see them together and get their happy ending.

It's a man's world and Summer is determined to get her piece of the pie. Jason presents the best of both worlds, if she can find the courage to put her heart and career on the line. Burke is great at writing strong heroines. She holds nothing back. From temptation to vulnerability, she puts it all on the line. ...more

An Awesome Read!

I loved reading Bare Ass in Love(Hard, Fast, and Forever Book 1), all about Summer Davis a Construction Manager & Jason Steele the CEO of Steele Developments International. Jason hires Summer because she’s the best person for the job, to manage his new Senior Retirement Community and take it from conception to reality. She’s feisty, neurotic & obsessive just like me, and I love everything about her, but she works for me and I don’t want to blur the lines, but if she wakes me up o

This is my first time reading any of Sasha’s books, and can’t wait to read more.

I loved this book from start to finish.

I love the characters and the story.

A short sweet read. Just would have loved a bit more storyline outside of the bedroom.

Possessive and protective alpha heroes have long been Sasha’s biggest weakness.
