Brief encounters in the bar, seductions in the pool or a menage in the elevator - this haven for the hedonistic promises as much heat, steam, lust and excitement as those who pass through it can handle. Conferences end with a bang; a gym instructor offers extremely personal training; illicit liaisons abound and flourish in the luxuriously appointed rooms. The daring sexual ...more

I not quite sure how to describe my thoughts on this book. It was well written, and the author has a great writing style. However, I wasn't sure abut how well it flowed. The main character Sophie has an infatuation with her manager Chase and whilst she does end up happily with another man, I didn't feel that Sophie's feelings for Chase were resolved, or what indeed Chase thought of Sophie. I also thought the relationship between Sophie and Lloyd seemed quite rushed and their wasn't much of a le

This tightly themed short story collection captivated me immediately. The basic premise of the book is one of the sexiest things I can imagine: a woman who likes to hang out at the bar of a posh hotel and pick up men gets hired to work at the hotel's reception desk, offering the opportunity to continue her extracurricular exploits after hours! This setup, introduced in the first story, could hardly have been more appealing to me. I was hooked—and the rest of the book certainly lived up to its pr ...more

Saucy, steamy British erotica, told with a wonderfully witty, humorous voice. Linked stories follow the protagonist as her sex life takes off and evolves around a key location, a classy city hotel. I'm watching out for more naughty fun from Justine Elyot.

Interesting twist at the end of this one. Entertaining, black lace.

I am glad to see that I was not the only person who could not get on with this book.
It seemed too disjointed and for this reason I gave up on it very few pages into the book.

I absolutely loved this book! It was so much fun. Justine Elyot is a hoot and she makes you laugh.

One of the things that's so different about this story is that while it's a series of sexy escapades that happen at a fancy hotel, it's mostly about Sophie Martin, the receptionist. Sophie is definitely a free spirit, willing to embrace her naughty side, and she gets into all kinds of intriguing scenarios. I actually got quite caught up in Sophie's story, wondering what would happen to her and her

So...you're going to look at the cover of On Demand and think, That is a HOT cover.

Don't stop there. TREAT YOURSELF AND BUY THIS BOOK. I promise you, On Demand more than lives up to the promise of the glossy gorgeousness on the outside. You haven't met a heroine quite like Sophie. And trust me, not only are you going to love her, but you're going to feel exactly like she does when you come nose-to-book with The Manager.

Hm. This is a very explicit and very dirty book, consisting of a series of short stories tied together by recurring main character and fellow employees at the hotel where the stories are set. I felt detached from the main character - the scenes are told in a distant first person, descriptions cool, so it was hard to feel much compassion or much of anything really. There is a HEA, of sorts for the main character. I don’t know that I would classify it as a romance though.

Bought from kobo.

This will appeal to a wide audience of erotica readers.

There is a little bit of all types of kink and pairings.

I highly recommend reading it. There is a clear storyline and always a dash of humour. Have fun!

Found this book to be a fairly easy read. Sophie was a girl that was definitely very sure of herself and knew how to get what she wanted. I loved the way this book ended. It was nice to read that she was able to be happy with this one guy but still be able to have fun as well.

Struggled through to the end but it was hard work. It was disjointed, lacked flow and no sense of time across the short stories that made up the novel. Definitely not my favourite in the genre

I am Justine Elyot. I love to write erotica and erotic romance. Elements you are likely to find in my work include: moustachioed melodrama villains, whips, wisecracks, knights in tarnished armour, damsels under duress, lovers, leather, aquiline features, references to popular songs. I massively overuse qualifiers like ‘really’, ‘quite’, ‘actually’ etc. and can’t resist the temptation to substitute ...more
