Abigail Stevens, an efficient and no-nonsense editor for one of the biggest names in the romance novel industry, has a big problem. She’s been desperately in love with Anthony Tate, Mr. Romance-Writer himself, for the last four years. She’s settled for friendship and professional success for the last four years, but now the sexy writer needs something more from her and she can’t find a reason to refuse.

Tony Tate has built a career centered on his identity as America’s most romantic writer. That identity does not include a debauched temper tantrum in the aftermath of his very public break-up with his on-again, off-again girlfriend. Tony has known that Abby has had the hots for him since the moment they met, but when his Plain Jane best friend and controlling editor ends up being his only option to exorcise his demons and pent-up sexual frustration, he can’t wait to break her prim and proper shell.

As Tony and Abby push each other farther than they’ve ever gone before, the question becomes, who will break whom?


I know this book is shelved as romance, but I think it’s more contemporary erotic romance, for the relationship between Abby and Tony relied heavily on the rough sex they had. And I’m sorry to say, that’s pretty much what the book is about.

Abby is a workaholic editor for Tony the Romance Wiz. As well as being Tony’s editor, she’s his caretaker, assistant, babysitter, housekeeper and probably some other things in between. Added more recently, his fuck buddy, pardon my French. I don’t have to say how much the plot intrigued me when I first read it, about a no nonsense editor and her self involved author hitting it on, but starting from the beginning I was disappointed. For one thing, there wasn’t much romance in the story to suck me in. Read More »
