In Expert Hands by Lily Harlem


Kane Ward is a successful businessman who is used to getting exactly what he wants in life. His exceptional good looks, unwavering charm and sleek sophistication mean that he's a sure hit with everyone he meets, especially the ladies. Oh, and did I mention he's also a billionaire ...what more could a girl possibly want?! 
Imogen White is a high-flying, independent woman to whom her job as bank manager means everything. She's worked so hard to achieve all that she has and cherishes it with everything. Her family, friends and career are the most important things in her life, meaning that there is very little room for a man. Each time Kane Ward, one of her most important clients, steps into her office for a meeting, she can't seem to shake the carnal thoughts which engulf her brain. 
Little does she know that Kane Ward has indeed for a very long time, been having these same thoughts, only he's decided that now is time to act!
Will she fall for his charms and allow herself to be led into the unknown and taken on a world of sexual discovery, or are their worlds just so far apart that they could never meet?

WOW, WOW, WOW!! Lily has absolutely excelled herself with this novel and it's exceptionally deep story of love, honour and most importantly, trust. The way the characters are cleverly brought together and Kanes' alternative lifestyle is slowly introduced is so well written ....it's almost like bearing witness to a private striptease. Each page you read, another layer is removed. My imagination literally went into overdrive and I found myself grabbing my phone at any given opportunity just to see what lay in store next. I really loved Imogens character - a good, strong, sexy, independent woman who knows exactly what she wants to achieve and how to achieve it, or at least she did until Kane Ward came along and blew everything out the water, introducing her to a lifestyle she'd barely even heard of, never mind experienced. As for Kane, well what can I say about him except I WANT ONE!! He gives a whole new meaning to tall, dark and handsome. There's an air of mystery which surrounds him and makes him all the more appealing. He's also a man who knows what he wants and is damn good at getting it too ...he could order me round any day! I totally fell in love with him and wanted to learn more about this intriguing character. I also thank Lily for giving a deeper understanding of the BDSM lifestyle and what it actually means to be a Dom - something I only had vague knowledge about before reading this but found really interesting.

Overall I would definitely recommend this book as it has everything needed to whet your appetite and more!

A Taste For Three by Rebecca Black


This is an absolutely great little novella from the lovely Rebecca Black ....and her first!

Cooking has always been a huge part of Ellies life and something she finds great comfort in, so when she was given the opportunity of working as a chef at E'Toile, she jumped at the chance. Nate and Jack were her best friends and her bosses - and both as hot as hell, so she tried hard to ignore the constant lucid thoughts running through her head. Besides, she had been celibate for the whole year she'd worked there and she could handle it ....or so she thought! Many a day she'd spend lusting after her bosses, watching how they moved and imagining the fun she could have with both of them. Little did she realise that both Jack and Nate were fighting similar feelings, only now they felt it was time to act on them. They approach Ellie and offer her a proposition, one which would hopefully satisfy all three of their needs, but would Ellie go for it?

I have to say that this only took me a few hours to read as I was gripped almost from the off. Rebecca has a great writing style and expertly draws the reader in. Although this is only a short novella, the characters are cleverly brought to life and you're given real understanding of their situation. I found myself really warming to Ellie and it was great having a little background knowledge to better understand her feelings. The sex scenes are sensual yet dirty which I absolutely loved. Rebecca, I applaud you on making me gasp ...it's not an easy thing to do but hey, you managed it!
Overall a great read and one that will make you squirm on the edge of your seat! I look forward to reading more from Rebecca Black with great anticipation.

I received this review copy free of charge in return for an honest review.
