Some touched.

Some watched.

Some just talked to me.

They all had their vices.


I’m trailer trash in the slums of Carillon.

Until I met him, the mysterious neighbor who speaks through handwritten notes. He never shows his face, only comes and goes late at night, and I’m drawn to him like a moth to a flame.

I shouldn’t want him.

I don’t need him.

He’s my addiction. The secret I keep close to my heart.

But sometimes things aren’t what they seem, and secrets don’t stay secrets forever.

And together, we’re just two lost souls on the wrong side of heaven.

This is the first book in a duet, a well written coming of age story.

Winnie is a seventeen year old girl, an orphan when her dad died of a drug overdose and she now lives with her stepmother Tess, a stripper and a hardcore drug addict. She is trapped in a hell-hole and can’t do much until she turns eighteen. Her life feels hopeless and her way of coping is trying to be invisible to others. There are two men in her life: Trey and Jasper.

Trey is Winnie’s anchor and he was her late dad’s best friend. He has dubious connections, he is twice her age and when his best friend died he took it upon himself to take care of Winnie as much as he can when he is around. He is very protective of her and they have a very deep bond and connection.

Jasper goes to the same school with Winnie but he only got to know her when she started working at The Whip. He is a devoted and protective friend and also loves her but he knows she loves Trey more. She feels she should give Jasper a chance but her connection with Trey has been there since she was a young girl. How can he compete with Trey when they only got to know each other recently?

This coming of age story involves a damaged heroine, one who is also strong enough to survive the hardship she has experienced.  Winnie’s life is so miserable but one marvels at her resilience. She is a mature seventeen year old with goals and dreams, she is only biding her time until she comes of age and can get out of the trailer home she shares with Tess. Amidst all the put downs, the physical and emotional abuse she gets from Tess, Winnie is a fighter and one can only root for her happiness. But between Jasper and Trey, who is the better choice? Be warned that this book ends in a massive cliffhanger but don’t despair as book two comes out in April 2018. I suggest that you have a box of chocolates by your side whilst reading this as it can be quite depressing.


I’ve become a prisoner in my own body, held captive by my thoughts. Without a TV, there’s not much to do besides write, draw, and think. When I run out of paper, I get antsy, and I talk to Dad, praying he’s watching over me. Because, no matter how hard I try to block out the noise, the inside of my brain feels like a cluttered junk drawer full of odds and ends that don’t matter. A bunch of trash that’s stuck in a small space with no purpose.

Sometimes, the voices are so loud, I pace in circles until the ratty carpet fibers stop laughing at me. If I don’t, I’ll end up in the bathroom with the blade against my thigh. On days when I can’t get the chatter to stop, I run the smooth metal over my skin and watch the blood seep out.

Blood—the lifeline that unites a family.

All my family is dead or gone.

God, I hate the sight of blood. The smell. The consistency. The way it smears and stains everything it touches. But, once the blade touches my skin, I forget about Tess and how little I have. Suddenly, that little cut is all I can think about, and I love the way it silences the screaming inside my head.

For those few seconds of peace, I forget that Dad’s not coming back, that Trey is gone, and how Tess isn’t ever going to be the mother I need her to be. I’m no longer lonely and afraid. I’m the girl who looks in the mirror and likes what she sees.

I am me. Nobody else.

I’m not a good man, and I’ve never pretended to be. I don’t believe in goodness or God or any happy ending that isn’t paid for in advance.

What do I believe in? Money. Sex. Macallan 18.

They have words for men like me—playboy. Womanizer. Skirt chaser.

My brother used to be a priest, and he only has one word for me.


***Sinner is a standalone companion to Priest about Father Bell’s brother Sean. You do not have to read Priest or Midnight Mass to read Sinner.***




“Zenny,” I mumble against her lips, some valiant part of me recognizing that this is far, far beyond the kiss she asked for, and also recognizing that I’m going to come all over the inside of my Hugo Boss suit pants if she keeps it up. Even through the clothes, I can feel her heat, her shameless rolls hinting at where she goes soft and wet between her legs.

Fuck, I want to see it. I want to see her pussy. It’s suddenly all I can think about, all I can want or crave, just one glimpse, just a peek.

“I want to see your cunt,” I say hoarsely, lifting my head.

“My…cunt?” She says the word like she’s never said it out loud before.

“Yeah.” My voice is so ragged right now, so desperate, and fuck, I’ve never felt this frantic before. Like I’ll actually combust if I don’t get this one thing, this one small sight of her secret place.

She lets out a shaky breath, her hand dropping from my lapel to her skirt, which she slowly rucks up to her waist as I devour her lips once more, as I bury my face in her neck and kiss every sliver of skin exposed above her collar. I bite at her ear, at her jaw, my hand finding hers as it pulls her skirt up, so that I’m helping her do it, that we’re doing it together, this forbidden act, this forbidden revelation.

Her forbidden body.

That word, forbidden, spikes through my mind, bringing with it equal spikes of lust and fear. Because yes, it’s fucking hot that I shouldn’t be kissing her, I shouldn’t be begging to see her most secret place, my hand shouldn’t be covering hers as it slides up her thigh—but it’s also bad. Bad even for Sean Bell.

Bad, bad, bad.



3.5 Stars ~ Reviewed by Sharon Thérèse

It wouldn’t surprise me if Sinner causes a certain amount of controversy and not because of the the sexual content. Don’t get me wrong, Simone has written one steamy romance. So why do I think this full-length novel will have a ripple effect or better said, create a buzz? Sure enough, the sexual tension sizzles off the pages from start to finish; however, what slayed me and I’m sure will affect you too, is the plot. But before I go any further, I’d like to mention Tyler Bell’s brief appearance from Priest. As the author hasn’t recounted his past events in any detail, there’s no confusion for the reader so yes, Sinner can be read as a standalone. Now then, let’s get back to the story! What a blinkin’ marvellous prologue. It certainly put me in the picture regarding some of the male protagonist’s traits and what’s more, once I got to know him, I loved how he didn’t make excuses for himself.

Chapter one and I’m rolling my eyes and trying to convince myself to read on. You see, not only was this mid-thirties millionaire checking himself out, but also flashing his dimple. However, I persevered and don’t regret it for a minute. Don’t be fooled by Sean Bell ladies, there are huge things to come…no pun intended! Exemplary brother to his siblings and caring son, he’d never had a problem with his conscience in the bedroom department so why, all of a sudden, was it bothering him? Was the proposition he’d received that indecent? Were the strings attached an issue? Maybe the taboo factor had something to do with it since more sinful and more tempting, it could not be. Ahh, but all is not what it seems because under his live and let live attitude, there’s so much more depth to him than I ever thought possible.

“Are you–” “Are you…preening?”
“I am not preening,” “I’m Sean Bell, and Sean Bell does not preen.”

Zenobia Iverson, aka Zenny, knows him. He doesn’t recognise her…and this folks, is where the fun begins! She’s a real beauty, young, headstrong and courageous, her naivete adorable and guess who thought so too! I thought her plans for the future nobel, but her plans for the rightnow, wow…no wonder Sean had trouble finding his moral compass. One would think the two of them together would leave little to the imagination seeing as he’s experienced in the sexual-arts. Believe me, the mental image I perceived at the hand of the author’s penmanship left me with my mouth wide open!

“This is different. I know you trust me, you know I trust you. And now it’s time for me to show you what I would do if you were mine…” 

Soul-searching life’s purpose, learning to live with loss, forgiving oneself and accepting love on a spiritual level were just a few of topics handled with extreme sensitivity. Throughout the read, theological facts and cardinal virtues were abundant. Whether it was a simple comment or a shared opinion between Sean and Zenny, it sounded convincing but at the same time, faith’s conundrum left him in a religious quandary of sorts. Devoutness wasn’t being tested, it questioned and challenged. Here, the dialogue was foremost intellectual; especially in the matter of race. Sean showed me his concern for Zenny’s happiness which might mean unhappiness for him. Also, when the opportunity presented itself, she was curious to know if he was comparing his beliefs or the lack of them with a heartbreaking past experience. A commendable piece of work on the writer’s part I might add.

“I want to build a tower around you, and then build a castle around that tower, and then dig a moat around that castle, and then I want to guard you like a dragon. Burn anyone who tries to hurt you into ash and then scorch those ashes a second time.” 

How much is too much sex in a book? Hmm, I think it must be tricky navigating in this narrative water for any author, but those hot passionate moments are what a lot of Simone’s fans have come to expect. She’s a remarkably descriptive writer, her wordplay couldn’t be better and her scenes damn good. So, why did I get the impression that her protagonists’ sexapades were a tad excessive when all she’d done is deliver an excellent read? At times, I felt as if the plot was overshadowed by said scenes and slowed the book down. Nonetheless, it’s been awhile since I’ve highlighted so many hot passages which in my book, is a positive sign, right? I can’t possibly give you the reason why I had a little-big cry towards the end… and the epilogue, just floved it! I would definitely recommend one-clicking and ooh, don’t forget to read author’s interesting footnote. Bravo Simone!

This is a very emotional, second chance romance featuring one of the members of the rock band, Trained in Black. Although this book is the second in the Sweet Sin series it can be read as a standalone.

Meet Dean, the drummer of the band. The tragic death of his teenage son Landon still weighs him down and the only thing that gets him through life is his daughter, Leila. This guy is a strong alpha who will protect his family and the people he loves. One person who has been a blot in his life is Sam, the journalist who won’t stop digging into his past and had caused him a lot of pain.

Tatum had a meltdown on the day of her wedding to Sam and it was Dean who saved her life. The first time they met was life changing but she avoided him until the day they met again, six years later. This time around they both feel that connection, that spark. Tatum is a very strong character, what she went through with Sam moulded her into the person she is now. Having Dean in her life made her want to be there for his pain.

“ I want to touch him, soothe him, talk to him, and find out everything there is to know about him, but I also want him to light that fire and keep it burning. I also want a man who seeks deep within me with his eyes as well as scorches me up with a kiss, a look from across the table, or a touch.”

There is a lot of drama in Dean and Leila’s life. Not only does Dean have to deal with his son’s death, he also has his band mate Liam’s downward spiral. The guys of Trained in Black may not be blood brothers but they are a closed knit bunch, they will protect each other, they always cover each other’s backs. I love Leila’s close bond with her father, it was him who raised her and her brother Landon.

This book is overflowing with emotions: guilt, anger, sorrow, sexual tension and a whole lot more. I felt like the characters were so bogged down with all these feelings that they all should be in therapy. If the author wanted her readers to feel like they had their heart punched, stomped on and squeezed dry then she succeeded. After all the intense build up in the book (the showdown between Dean, Tatum and Sam) the ending was a bit of an anticlimax.  I expected an explosive ending but maybe the author wanted to give her readers a reprieve. One can only handle so much snot and tears!

Gallimore has arrived at a crossroad in life.

For five
years, January shared a long-distance love affair with French rock legend,
Etienne Marceaux. Their relationship is passionate but comfortable. Caught in

how long her career will endure, and she questions some of the decisions she’s
On a
spontaneous trip with her best friend to Provence, January encounters a chance

somewhat awkward aristocratic ways, Nigel, nevertheless, sweeps January off her
Louboutin pumps.

romp about the French countryside, January tutors her young suitor on the finer
points of BDSM, and Nigel unwittingly leads January on a deep exploration of

set of baggage.
Forced to
leave Nigel by her filming schedule, January returns to the hustle of
Hollywood, only to find her confusion mounting.
Will she
choose Etienne, who makes her body sizzle…or Nigel, whose charm and manners leave

This is the first book I’ve read from the author. A different kind of BDSM romance set in Paris, Provence and Avignon. The three main characters in this story are January, Etienne and Nigel. Not quite a love triangle although it does involve three people but not at the same time. Three complex characters and written in three parts.

January is in her mid thirties, she was born and raised in Kansas and when she was old enough to leave town she did. She made a name for herself, albeit not in a good way but her BDSM lifestyle alienated her from her family. She was involved in a scandal which almost derailed her career but she recovered well and never looked back.

Etienne is her French lover of five years, a rock star and a lot older than January. His reluctance to commit to a permanent relationship drives a wedge between them and forces her to re-evaluate her priorities in life. He might be the perfect Dom for her but she feels he isn’t capable of giving her the happy ever after she wants.

When January took a step back from Etienne, her best friend Xavier, a famous fashion designer, brought her to Provence to cheer her up. There she meets Nigel, an Englishman much younger than her. There was mutual attraction between the two and it seems like he is also a willing apprentice to her kinky lifestyle. Is Nigel just a rebound for January or is he The One? Will she give him a chance?

Although the theme of this book is BDSM, there are a lot of factors that made this story very interesting. The author successfully interlaces a quirky lifestyle in the picturesque regions of Provence and Paris and added colourful characters into the mix. Nigel is the perfect book boyfriend and makes you root for him right from the start. Etienne is such a douche bag that one wonders why January wasted five years of her life with a selfish rock star. This book is divided into three parts: the first was when January was with Etienne, the second part was when she met Nigel and the last part was when she decided to take a break from both, weigh her options and to reconnect with her family in Kansas. This book is like a travelogue of France sprinkled with BDSM erotica and lots of sex toys I have never even heard of. Some role play scenarios in this book made my inner unicorn cringe and I must have rolled my eyes too much it made me dizzy but hey, whatever floats your boat, right? A light erotica romance one will enjoy reading.




Amazon bestselling author Juliet Braddock’s first efforts in creative writing came long before she learned to put crayon to paper.  In fact, she began spinning stories in her head nearly as soon as she could form complete sentences.  As long as she can remember, she’d always created sagas about imaginary friends, family members and pop culture icons, and kept everyone around her entertained with her witty—but often very tall—tales.

For her sixth Christmas, Juliet’s mother got her a child’s typewriter to preserve all of those creative thoughts filling her head, but she quickly switched to ball point pens and notebooks when the ribbon ran dry.

Most of Juliet’s early attempts at writing romance focused on members of Duran Duran and Spandau Ballet or young leading men on Broadway.  However, as she matured as a writer, she decided that it was just as much fun to create her own romantic heroes and heroines.

At an early age, she also developed a love for big cities, and the tallest of skyscrapers were never high enough for her.  Juliet’s wanderlust would eventually lure her to New York, a city she often visited during her formative years, and her love affair with Manhattan began.  She’d promised herself that one day she would return for good.

Juliet’s passion for writing and for big cities converged, and after graduating with a degree in Journalism, she decided to set out on a journey to find her heart…just where she’d left it.

A week after her college graduation, Juliet made the big move from a small town to New York City, where she has made her home ever since.

In between building a career in communications and writing on the side, she’s indulged in international travel, theater and art.  A wine and food buff, she’s by no means a connoisseur, but she can give a few good restaurant recommendations if you’re in the city.

“There’s something so inspiring about living in a city like New York that’s so rich in culture and so very vibrant. Every neighborhood has its own story to tell,” Juliet says.  “I often do my best plotting on the subway, just observing the lives unfolding around me.  New York truly has a billion stories nestled between the skyscrapers.”

Since she initially started writing, Juliet developed a condition called Pseudotumor, and while she is legally blind, she continues to turn out her steamy, romantic stories with the help of magnifying software for the vision-impaired.

“Throughout my lifetime, I’ve been through a lot, but I never let anything stop me from doing what I love to do,” Juliet says. “Writing has been my passion since I was a child, and as long as I have stories to share with my readers, I will continue.”

A proud New Yorker, Juliet couldn’t live anywhere else—except for Paris, perhaps—and is a gushing cat-mom to a Russian Blue mix who was rescued as a kitten from the streets of Brooklyn, where they make their home.

Juliet is legally blind, and spins her sexy romances with the assistance of software for the vision-impaired.

I don’t know what love is anymore.

Well, that’s not entirely true, but I’m going to tell you a little secret: I’ve lost the spark.

You know the kind of spark I’m talking about?

Where butterflies take flight in your stomach from two hands innocently colliding. Or catching your breath when you first meet someone attractive. Yeah, that spark.

Except I haven’t felt that feeling in forever; there is nothing left inside of me.

Normally, this wouldn’t be a problem–but I’m a writer on a serious deadline, and my editor is breathing down my neck for a romantic, Nicholas Sparks type love story. No pressure, right?

That’s how I find myself flying across the country to crash a wedding in the name of research, dress and heels stuffed into my small suitcase.

It should be the easiest book research ever. Drinking some free champagne, basking in the love of two strangers, and tapping into my romantic side. That will be a breeze. I’m a pro. I can handle this.

Until I mistakenly end up in the wrong hotel room, naked as the day I was born, with the sexiest human I have ever met staring me down, wondering what I’m doing taking a shower in his bathroom. I don’t think calling it research will get me out of this pickle.

We finally get to read Beck’s story. He was blind date number two from the first book, Three Blind Dates. I loved Beck in that book but sadly he didn’t get the girl, I hope he gets her this time! This light-hearted romance can be read as a standalone but would help you connect the dots if you read the first book in this series.

So now we continue with Beck’s story. He was the one who had a painful history. Guessing from his no alcoholic drinks lifestyle one can surmise that he is a recovering alcoholic and when you read further along the book, you find out what happened to him during the last six years. His dark past shaped his future and he is determined to make himself a better person. “Every step I take is forward, never backward”. He is that special guy who is not only blessed with good looks, but he’s also a great artist, a sweet romantic and one who will pull out all the stops to get his girl.  

Rylee is the focused and determined heroine, an author who needs an inspiration. She is smart, attractive and is prone to foot-in-mouth gaffes, a hot combo that will be Beck’s downfall. “Sometimes, you have to hold on to the things that tried to tear you down, because it’s good to be reminded why you’re going to succeed.”

This is a fast paced story written in dual points of view. Although the tone in this book is light-hearted, the main characters deal with some life changing issues and consequences. It is well balanced with a lot of hilarious banter amongst the characters that will tickle your funny bone, warm your heart and set fire to your knickers. Rylee and Beck’s story is the perfect follow up to that ugly cry book you just finished reading.



Chills scream their way down my arms and legs, my nipples pucker, and just like that, with one word, all humor vanishes from our little conversation and awareness of this all-consuming man wrapped around me hits me hard.

Gathering myself, I say, “Tell me something Chris and Justine know about you.”

“Hmm.” His thumbs hook under the waistband of my shorts, playing with the lower part of my hipbones. His touch spurs on my pelvis, needing to rock, begging for him to go lower. My toes curl in my sandals and my back slightly arches, reaching for more. “Something they know about me.”

His mouth doesn’t stray from its position against my ear, and his hips start to slowly move underneath me, his legs tangling with mine. Involuntarily, one of my hands hooks the back of his neck as I hold on tightly to him, feeling like I need support from the onslaught of sensation I’m feeling.

I hear him say something, but it doesn’t register in my brain, which has turned to mush as his thumbs stray from my hipbones to right above my pubic bone.

There is no denying how turned on I am, how wet I am from his mere touch, how much—despite my reservations—I want this man.

With each stroke, my head turns farther and farther to the side until our noses are touching, Beck’s head bends forward to meet me halfway. My eyes flutter shut for a brief moment before I open them and am captured by those flecks of green and gold.

The air stills around us, our breath mixing, swirling between us, our lips so close.

One swipe of this thumb.

Another one.

I can’t breathe.

I can’t focus.

Another swipe, my head leans even closer, my tongue wetting my lips.

One more swipe . . .

My heart hammers in my chest, my skin prickling with awareness.

Beck brings his mouth even closer, only a whisper away now, and he waits.

Holding still.

His breathing feeling erratic beneath me.




And I’m gone.

I bring my mouth to his, slowly parting my lips ever so slightly, just enough to maneuver my mouth across his.

A low, provocative moan escapes Beck as one of his hands snags the back of my head and holds me in place, almost as if he lets go, I’ll disappear.

Needing more, I shift on his lap so I’m straddling him once again, my hands on his bare chest, feeling the powerful sinew that holds him together.

Our lips press and mold, mingling, taking, begging . . .


Beck’s tongue runs against my bottom lip, eliciting a moan from deep within me, lighting a fire so hot, so wild, my hands start to travel up his neck to his cheeks where I grip him, positioning his head so when I open my mouth, I can expertly dive my tongue onto his.

He groans, his lap shifting against mine now, his hard-on pressing against my wet and throbbing center. I match his rocking, using my position on his lap to take advantage of his length I can feel through his board shorts.

This is exactly what I didn’t want to happen, but God, am I happy it has. Maybe I really should live in the moment, maybe I should take advantage of the opportunity, maybe I should…

Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

I crossed the train tracks, looking both ways as if the freight ran on a thoroughfare. It was a few steps to the rows of mobile homes that defined that side of Barrington.

The playground was in a little clearing just west of the center of the trailers. My fingertips were cold, but the rest of my body thrummed and pulsed so hard that I made my own heat. I told myself I didn’t know what to expect from this meeting, but if I didn’t know what to expect, I knew what to hope, and they were pretty much the same thing.

“Catherine!” Chris wasn’t loud, but the excitement in his voice made him sound as if he were shouting.

“Chris?” I spun around, looking for him in the darkness.

And on a three-quarter turn, he crashed into me, all lips and hands, digging his fingertips into the muscles of my back as he pulled me close. I tasted the minty toothpaste in his mouth and thought he brushed his teeth for me. He kissed me as if he would never kiss me again. He kissed me as if this was the last kiss he would ever have in his life. As if he wanted to eat me alive. I’d given over my freedom and my choice to this thing with him, to this moment, to this stupid set of choices that would ruin me forever. As surely as the sun would rise, I was the designer of my own destruction.

I wanted to be destroyed by that kiss.

When Chris took my hand, I imagined I could feel the blood pulsing through the veins, the cells in his skin. I imagined that when my nerve endings vibrated at his touch, they connected to his somehow.

Everything felt new. I was discovering that my body had routes between one place and another that I never knew existed. I never knew that when a man touched my hand or kissed my nipples, I could feel it between my legs.

There was a click behind the tree line, and he stopped kissing me with a jerk. We froze long enough for him to smile.

I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed revisiting Barrington where there’s never a dull moment! And the cameo appearance of Catherine’s sister, Harper, who started the ball rolling and Taylor who had to stop it, was a real treat. White Knight can be read as a standalone; however, it wouldn’t go amiss if you read King of Code first since you’ll have a better understanding as to why the town’s inhabitants are in such a pickle. Saying that, Reiss has written this love story in such a way that with little effort and even less confusion, this second chance romance can be enjoyed on its own. Even though we’ve seen quite a few poor-boy-falls-for-rich-girl romances around of late, Reiss’ style of writing lifts this novella way above this category. No argument about it; she gave me just the right amount of angst, didn’t exaggerate the bedroom scenes but when the occasion arose…, no pun intended, her idiomatic prose kicked in and is as always, impressive.

I was delighted that one of the main features of the story became a touching name given to Catherine Barrington by the male protagonist because it was hers to wear proudly. Its significance made smile no end since it revolves around a couple of very amusing scenes. Listen guys, you can’t possibly not love her. To my mind, Reiss exerted herself with the character development of her female protagonist. You see, Catherine’s heart is a very delicate one, figuratively speaking of course. Everyone who knows her, have had to watch a series of unfortunate events occur while she’s suffered in silence. So busy trying to please and make life a better place for those involved means her feelings have been abandoned. Or have they?

Christopher Carmichael left his past behind for reasons to be divulged. I truly believe that circumstances made him stronger and the story wouldn’t have panned out as it did if Reiss had chosen another route for him. What happened was heartbreaking and I didn’t like it one bit; nonetheless, now he has the chance to ferret out the whys and wherefores of certain actions. An unusual storyline as situations are reversed in the present, what I enjoyed more was the back and forth from Christopher and Catherine’s youth to today. Observing how they’d changed over the years, how written words from the past would catch up on them, and learning forgiveness and trying to forget, pulled on my heartstrings.

I seemed to finish the book in no time and to be quite honest, would have happily carried on reading. I thought the ending was a tad rushed though, but probably because I wanted more of these two beautiful people. Other than this small detail, I couldn’t find fault in the story and highly recommend it. Bravo Reiss!

About the Author

CD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up she’s at the well hauling buckets.

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.

She’s frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn’t ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood.

If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

“Why haven’t we had sex?”

When Jesse Gunn, one of the biggest stars of World Class Wrestling, voiced that million dollar question, yet again, I was stunned. After turning him down countless times, I thought eventually he’d give up.

Unexpectedly thrown together for a work project, my mind went to places I’d never allowed. Dirty places where sweaty, naked bodies take center ring and names are rasped out in the heat of the moment.

Now, my time is spent wondering if a certain part of him could possibly live up to his last name, distracting me from my full time job – as his boss.

Can I continue to keep things professional or will I give in and tussle?

Tussle is a romcom sports romance. It tells the story of Lilah Turner who begins working at World Class Wrestling for her dad Russ. On her first day, she meets a guy called Jesse Gunn. Jesse takes an instant liking to Lilah and asks her on a date. Lilah agrees until her dad slaps on a no fraternisation policy and later discovers Jesse is a wrestler, so she turns him down.

Jump three years later and Jesse still tries his hardest to get Lilah to date him. She spurns him every turn but he’s pretty persistent. There is a definite attraction between the two and plenty of banter to boot. Lilah finds it increasingly difficult around Jesse as she secretly is attracted to him but she doesn’t want to destroy all that she’s worked for in her career. Then her dad instructs her to go on a road trip with Jesse to raise his profile. Lilah somewhat dreads having to be near Jesse and he is quite cheeky when he lets it known he is looking forward to spending more time with her. What follows is hilarity, sexual tension and possibly Jesse chipping away to melt Lilah’s heart. 

The side characters are a bonus. Ronnie who’s Jesse’s sister and a successful female wrestler, and Wyatt is Jesse’s best friend also a fellow wrestler. They play a significant role and I would like to think we may get a further story on those characters. The banter between all the characters had me laughing and I was intrigued by the connection with them all. Flawless writing by the author and great attention to detail. It’s been many years since I’ve watched wrestling, but it was written in a way that transported you right in the room, watching the show. Tussle is told in dual points of view and that’s a bonus to know what both are thinking. It was colourful being in Jesse Gunn’s mind and equally in Lilah’s as she battled with her feelings, and what she was under instruction to do.

I awarded five stars because I could not get the book out of my head and it was such an enjoyable offering. This is not your average sports romance/erotic story. The author tells this tale with building anticipation and growing chemistry. Knowledge is power, but the writing talent shows the author has a way with words. When it does eventually get to the steamy parts, well all I can say is two words, “storeroom cupboard” and leave it at that. You will have to read it to find out. Chance’s repertoire of works range from suspense to sports and I’ve read them all and he gets better and better each time. He has a talent for creating protagonists and side characters that you could read repeatedly in various stories which just goes to show that he has a talent of entertaining and enchanting you through his written word. Kudos for not just another sports book, but giving a sport that not many write about a welcome change. Sports genre in general is quite saturated; however, Mr Chance’s take on it is always refreshing and edge of seat stuff.
