Lena Matthews has been widowed for 3 years; she’s an ordinary woman really. She’s taking Tai Chi classes, where she’s not that good but has been watching another teacher from afar for a while: John Takahashi. Rumours abound about the handsome Japanese American, not all of them good; some say he might be involved in international crime… Then one day, John asks Lena out. It turns out he’s had his eye on her as well but he doesn’t do relationships; he does not fit in his schedule. Then one date turns into another, John and Lena are getting closer until she learns just what secrets her mysterious lover is hiding and she gets more excitement than she ever bargained for. What a feat! A complete story in a novella! Fast-paced, exciting story, great characters, lost of action and loads of sexiness! Can you ask for anything more!

Circle of Dishonor is a erotic novella. As a novella, the story is laying the groundwork for future stories, so I allowed for that in my rating. I did not expect the whole story and felt the novella accomplished its goal – I want to read more about him and her. People’s eyes are drawn to him when he enters a room, not just because of his looks but the aura that surrounds him. He has a southern accent that can fool people into believing he’s something he’s not. Lena was taking tai chi classes, but could not overcome her clumsiness. What could she say? She is a klutz. She was easy going but restrained. She had been watching John for weeks. She would sit at the coffee shop, pretending to look at her computer as she watched him through the window. His body is poetry in motion as he performs his tae kwan do routine. But today was different. He approached her at the coffee shop. As they talked over a cup of tea, he knew she belonged to him. I don’t know if he’s good or bad, I’m thinking he’s a good man, but a bad boy. Ya know what I mean? I guess it’s not really love at first sight, considering they have been watching each other for weeks and he really is more than he seems to be. A lot of people will find her actions totally unbelievable, but you would be surprised what happens in the real world. I love when books take place in locations I am familiar with. After being attacked, they end up staying at his beach house in the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area, right around the corner from me and places I visit often. It’s not long until they are found. I can visualize the events taking place in the house and on the beach as they struggle to survive. I figured from the cover the book would be HOT. It sure is! I grabbed the book because of the blurb. I found the novella had a lot of action, but I was hoping it would be more of the fighting kind, than the sex kind. I did find the need to read straight through to see how it would end. It took me 65 minutes. I enjoyed the read and I know erotica lovers will want this on their reading list. I received an ebook in return for an honest and unbiased review for the tour.

I enjoyed this stand-alone novella in The Circle series enough to go back and read the other books in the series. However, the story seemed rushed. I think there is enough of a back-story that this should have been a full-length novel in order to properly develop the characters and make their relationship more believable.  Good read if your looking for something short in between longer reads. I received an eARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.
