When Deacon Starkis sets his sights on the gorgeous young model gracing the pages of his glossy catalogue, he knows he has to have her. One problem. She’s not available. But that won’t stop Deacon. He’s a man used to getting what he wants and he wants Mia.

Mia is stunned when she receives an email from the elusive billionaire who owns the lingerie company she models for. He tells her he’s intrigued. He’s not the only one. But she knows she’d be a fool to throw away an eight year relationship for a brief affair with the head honcho. He doesn’t do relationships and she doesn’t do casual sex. It seems they’re at an impasse. 

Who will come out on top in this battle of wills? The dominant one or the woman intent on teaching him the meaning of submission?

Roxy's Review
MMMMM... Deacon Starkis, what every woman wants in a sexy Greek god of a man.
As a man who is accustomed to getting what he wants,
he has his sites set on
one, sexy model,
Mia Barnes.

Mia is, unfortunately for Deacon,
not single and living with her boyfriend, Drew.

Deacon is patient and even sweet as he woos
Mia away from Drew.
Though Mia wants to tell herself that Drew's
laziness is the reason for their breakup,
she's not 100% sure Deacon had no influence on her decision,
after months of emails, texts and gifts from her billionaire boss.
Though Deacon has yet to meet his sexy cover model,
Mia, in person,
she is always on his mind and he is getting antsy 
about getting her in his arms.
A wonderful game of chase between these two as Mia tries to hide her feelings for her boss and hot pursuer.
I loved how these two interact and the sweet, shyness of Mia's personality with the dominant God that is Deacon was scorching.
A fantastic start to this series, I'm more than looking forward to the next installment.
Damon and El???
Yes, please!!!

4.5 BadAssDirtyScorchingStars!!

When one door closes, another one opens. I closed the door to my business for the last time in 2011, which left me with a decision. What now? Find another location and move my nutrition business, go to work for someone else, or take a chance on my dream? I chose the latter and I’ve never looked back! 

I’ve always loved reading and writing, but it wasn’t until I jumped in with both feet and decided writing would be my career, instead of just a hobby, that my muse woke up from her deep slumber. It was like someone flipped a switch inside my head and stories just came pouring out. At the end of the day, I would often look at the keyboard and wonder, ‘Who the heck wrote that? ‘Cause I’m pretty sure it wasn’t me!’

I don’t write books. I tell stories, or rather, I allow my characters to tell their stories through me. I’m not a plotter, never have been, never will be. Why? Because I have no idea how the story will evolve and it’s not my place to manipulate it. My job is to get to know these characters, figure out what makes them tick, then follow their journey wherever it takes me.

When I’m not writing, I’m daydreaming. Thankfully, I have an understanding husband and son who know I’ll re-join the land of the living just as soon as my muse decides it’s quitting time. I don’t work for myself. I work for her. She’s the boss. And I’m okay with that.
