    A fantastic contemporary romance that will "turn you on"

    I really loved this novella, it was just what I was craving.a great straightforward contemporary romance, just a man and a woman and their story of love.

    Max is from a large and protective family who is learning to spread her wings, assert her independence, and discovering that learning to say "no" to her family allows her the freedom to find herself. Ryan, on the other hand hasn't had the best experience with his family growing up, and has been happy living life as a military man.at least before he discovered he had a brother that needed him, and is now having to learn all about being part of a family along with the obligations and commitments that go with it.

    Max and Ryan have great chemistry from the moment they meet. One of the things that I loved about their story is that there was a real progression to their relationship. Even though they were immediately attracted to each other the reader gets to experience how their relationship progresses from mere attraction to a lasting type of love. Max meets her brother, Ryan meets her family and friends....my point here is: They get to know each other as they fall in love. Discovering why and how the characters fall in love with each other as it happens to them is one of the reasons why I love reading romance.

    The only criticism I have for this story is that at one point Max considers ending her relationship with Ryan because he has become to overprotective and overbearing after a series of increasing malicious threats and vandalism to her car and property. But this deliberation occurs immediately following a party with Ryan and her friends, where they were all having a good time. End of the chapter. Then at the beginning of the very next chapter she's thinking of breaking it off. And while it wasn't completely unexpected that her character would rebel against Ryan's increasing protectiveness, I mean he's an ex-military man, who run's a security consulting firm, and who has come to have strong feelings for Max. She's trying out freedom for the first time. It's only natural that he would feel the way he does, and for her to feel the way she does. It was such an abrupt shift.from party, to possible breakup without a transition that I had to stop and turn back a page just to make sure that I hadn't missed something. I wish that there would have been at least one scene where Max either expressed her thoughts internally about Ryan's increasingly overbearing and overprotective nature as he reacts to the danger surrounding her, or a scene wear Ryan completely overreacted to something that happened, prompting Max to consider ending their love affair. That being said, other than this one drawback I thought Turn It On was pretty close to perfection.

    Turn it On by Vivian Arend is the perfect short story if you are looking for a quick, yet tremendously satisfying romance fix. Her stories are guaranteed to be red hot and steamy romances that have emotion, sigh-worthy moments that in fact may leave you breathless, and characters that you'll grow to love. Despite its short length it doesn't feel like a novella, but a full length novel because of the evolution of Maxine and Ryan's love story. It's amazing to me that she can work such magic in so few words. It's a little gem that I loved, and worth every single penny. I can't wait to see what she will have in store for us in the 2nd book in the Turner Twins series.

    Loved

    I loved this book. I read book two first and it made sense. I'm sure they were mislabeled. This should have been book two.

    Wonderful story

    It was a great read. I enjoyed the other book in this series also. The mystery was only part of the story that kept it interesting for me; it was a great backstory. The love story was great!
