She doesn’t want wild and raunchy, just a little spice…

Stephanie Faulkner listens to her neighbor’s nightly sexcapades through her bedroom wall. What used to make her blush now has her reaching for her vibrator. But she’s had enough self-fulfillment and now wants the real thing.

He wants commitment and long-term, not a quick roll…

The only woman Parker Madison ever wanted for long-term was Stephanie...but she's off-limits. He’s tried to find a substitute but there just isn’t another woman like her. Now that she's available, if he gives her time to get over her ex-husband...will he finally get his long-desired chance?

Short-term doesn't lead to long term. Or does it…?

But when Stephanie digs up the courage to ask Parker for something a little exciting and spicy, he nervously rejects her. Still, she sets out to get what she wants—a little sexcapade of her very own. No commitment. It's just sex, right?  Parker knows he could never be satisfied with having Stephanie temporarily. But as she continues to tempt him and he finds it harder to resist, he begins to think short-term might be better than nothing at all. Unless he can convince her into more.

I’m really happy I came across Nikki’s review because I absolutely loved this novella.  It was funny (there’s a kitchen scene that damn near made me pee my pants), steamy (any scene involving the main characters hooking up had me fanning myself) and sweet (I couldn’t help but want a HEA).  Best part?  It left me wanting more.  Everything about the story worked for me.  You can’t really ask for more than that, right?

I adored both Stephanie and Parker.  They’re chemistry jumps off the page and it was fun to watch each of them struggle to get what they want.  I enjoyed how Ms. Ford slowly gave us the background behind their relationship.  Once their history is laid out you can’t help but root for a happy ending.  This one gets two thumbs up from me.  I’m looking forward to checking out the rest of this series.

Favorite Lines:
”I want something more than plain vanilla.  Nothing extreme like cherry blizzard blast, but maybe a little chocolate with syrup.  And maybe a little squirt of whipped cream.”

  2. Anytime Julie! Hope all is well on your end.

  3. Fantastic review Jen! So, is this going to be a series of Novella's or was this first one a Novella just to get you hooked?? I think I need to check this series out! :-D

  4. Thanks D! Looks like it's going to be a series of novellas. The next one drops on 2/21 and I'm definitely going to be all over it. Yes! You definitely have to check it out. If only for the kitchen scene. ;-)

  5. Jen, thanks to your review I purchased it to download to my kindle...maybe I will set a little time aside this weekend to get this Novella read and set some time aside on Monday to get the newest release read...about how long did it take you to read it?

  6. Really D? That just made my day. I think I read the whole story right before going to bed or when I woke up. Either way it's pretty easy to do in one sitting. Let me know what you thought of the story!
