Book summary: 

When Eden Carver, Iowa farm girl turned NY actress, decides to seduce the sexy cop next door, she begins to wonder if she’s bitten off more than she can chew. The last thing Officer Jay Bennett wants is to cross a line with the sweet and innocent country girl—no matter how much he’d like to help himself to a nibble. Not only are they in the friendship zone, a naïve girl like Eden doesn’t belong in his dangerous world. But when she asks him to help her rehearse lines, and things go from simmer to boil, he finds himself doing the one thing he swore he’d never do. He knows he needs to walk away from temptation, but when sweet little Eden bites back, it tilts his world on its axis. Because biting back changes everything.
     Once again I'm stepping out of my comfort zone with this book. Yes you have noticed that I neither read a lot of adult books nor review the short stories. Well as you can see just now I'm doing both. It's not that I don't like these short stories it's just I don't know how to feel about them. They're different form the novels as you can't get the full background with these. So I hope that the author, publishers and tour organizer won't mind the lack of rating here. It's not that I don't like the story or anything it's just that I don't know how to rate this.

      Back to the story now. You get to meet Eden here as one narrator and her neighbor Jay as the second one. Yes they have been friends and next-door-neighbors for three years and both of them wanted more. Only neither wanted to lose the friendship they had cause if they took step forward that could possibly ruin everything they had. But Eden is the brave one here and her friends invent the perfect plan to move things forward. I must say nice played. But the insecurity is still there and it's a big step to make.

      If I had to describe this book in few words they would be hot, fast-read and interesting. This book is perfect when you need something hot to entertain you, cause it's only 50 pages long.

Until the next time,

  1. I am the same as you, I usually don't read a lot of short stories since I like to get to know my characters. Especially erotica short stories, it always feels like they jumped into bed too soon, I like my romance to sizzle a bit longer.
    BTW I think you did a great job with your review. :)

  2. Whuh. Look at that cover Tanja! Super sexy, and this sounds like a hot little short. I love that they've been dancing around one another for so long, that makes for a lot of pent-up tension. Win:)

  3. You are like me. I don't read much adult books either, BUT, I quite like short stories and seeing as this one is hot and fast-paced, it wouldn't hurt to give it a try. Is this part of a series or a stand-alone? This definitely looks entertaining, Tanja! Nice review. :)

  5. I read adult sometimes but I really don't like it when a book is that short. If it was a compilation of short stories it would be better... but glad you liked it (:

  6. Novella's usually don't work for me unless it's part of a series, but I'd say this one would most definitely work. Hot. Sexy. Steamy. Add a cop to that and viola, a perfect evening read. I'll give it a try.

  7. I'm not one for short and steamy books since I need my steam with plenty of development and depth in-between, but I'm glad you were able to break out of your norm reading schedule and enjoy this one. Great review, Tanja! I never know how to review short stories, but you did a great job! :D
