For men there’s a little blue pill. And what about us? I don’t believe in self medication so luckily this uber-sexy, scorching (and I mean SCORCHING) hot novella does the trick and hits all the right spots. Ladies, get your toys, lotions, gels, towels, the whole enchilada because you’re going to need it! This was my first read by this author, but there’s no way I’m going to miss out on anything else she writes. Especially if they all have a sexy plot that will plunge you into your most secret fantasies and leave you a moaning, panting mess at the end. Fresh off a bad break up from her ex-boyfriend who accused her of being too controlling in the bedroom, Alexandra’s self confidence is non existent. She settles for watching the gorgeous hunk through his office windows in the building across the street. Her fantasies are wild and untamed. And then he catches her red handed, or red faced, I should say. Andrew is rich, handsome, known for having dated a supermodel, very confident, a dominant and he wants Alexandra. And boy does he have her. Their chemistry jumps off the pages, slaps you in the face, curls your toes, fogs up your screen … you get the idea. Once Andrew gets his first taste of her, he’s not willing to let her go, but winning her over may be a bit more difficult than simply being able to deliver screaming orgasms. Normally I’d label stories like these as “mptp” (more porn than plot), but this story had a little extra something. Not only that, but Ms Angel sure knows how to write sex scenes. They’re raw, carnal, explosive, very descriptive and the words tickle your nerves from head to toe. Don’t be surprised to find yourself breathing in time with the heroine. For those who find the progression of their “relationship” unbelievable because of how fast they’re moving in the space of a few pages, I would have to disagree. Not only have they know of each other for some time before the story begins, but Alexandra is a (successful) career woman in her early thirties and Andrew is already set in life. All he wants and needs is a woman who isn’t afraid of commitment, marriage, children. It would seem that they’re a perfect match, and it comes across. Even when faced with a problem that could tear them apart, Andrew is relentless in his pursuit of her and lays his heart on the line. Sex in public – yes. Sex on a car – oh yes. Hair pulling – yes. Anal play – yes. If you want a well-written erotic romance that you won’t soon forget, pick up this book! I highly recommend it.

Alexandra has the best job ever. What does she do? I don’t know, it was some sort of accounting type job. That’s not why it’s the best. Her office location makes it the best. Because right across the way she can see right into the office of one Mr. Buff. And Mr. Buff likes to take a shower every day and walk around with his shirt off sometimes. And lately, Mr. Buff has noticed Alexandra staring, and they’ve begun waving. And Mr Buff notices Alexandra, too. This story started off innocently enough. I laughed at the author’s choice of names, like Mr Buff and Jerk Off Jack. There are several points in the story that really made me laugh out loud. Ok, one in particular made me snort right through my nose! You can tell the author has a great sense of humor, it really comes through her writing well. “His wicked grin turned the man from handsome to outright gorgeous when he waved back. Balling and holding papers in a death grip, she dropped her gaze. All she needed was for the man to think she had some kind of sick fetish for watching him.” This story has a bit of a voyeurism aspect, obviously. It was really a fun way to introduce the two characters to each other. I found Alexandra to be funny and a bit smart mouth, which I loved. But of course, the big draw of the story for me was Mr Buff, a man we will soon come to know as Andrew. Ok, let me just say it. Andrew is hot, obviously. But a little treat I wasn’t expecting was that Andrew was also oh so very dominant. He plays the dominant, aggressive male card to perfection and it works for him. He's is definitely getting added to my list of favorite book boyfriends! “Wolfish and dark, his scrutiny caressed her flesh, marking a trail of heat. “ There were so many things in this book I could quote, it was one fabulous line after another. But lets face facts: when the action started I put my pen down and I didn’t pick it up again until the story was over. The heat in the story would have set my notepad on fire, I have no doubt about that. Holy heck! When these two get it on, they get it ON. Their chemistry was white hot fire, and I loved every minute of it. The characters were fun and engaging while the non-sex scenes were packed full of fun and drama, depending on the situation. The author’s writing has a really nice flow to it, and I am definitely an instant fan. If you are looking for a hot erotic romance, I think that you should definitely start with Mr. Buff!

No one writes erotic romance like April Angel; but her stories are also filled with lovable, enchanting and often broken characters too!  In Mr. Buff we meet Alexandra; a woman who once oozed self-confidence until the betrayal of her cheating partner, and Andrew; a man looking for forever, but unable to make the first move on a woman he believes is already taken. So have a fire extinguisher at the ready, because when they finally do let down their defenses, the chemistry between this couple is a blazing inferno, destined to consume all in its path!

An office with a sPECtacular view! Book 1 in the Sizzling Encounters series ~ Loved this story! Humor and hot encounters await you in this short story! Caution: you may end up squirming in your seat wish you were Alex, you may not want to read this at your desk during your lunch break - you may end up having to go home early ;) And now a bit about the story... Alexandra Berte is a payroll manager in high rise office building with a wall of windows. She has one of the best views, across the street she can see right into "Mr. Buff's" office. After his morning workout routine, he showers in the windowless bathroom attached to his office and emerges shirtless into his office. Alex has been watching him so long, she has often gotten caught, so she blushes and waves at him. Turns out "Mr. Buff" is Andrew Carter, a savy business man with the Midas touch. What Alex doesn't know is he has been watching her as well and has been waiting for the perfect opportunity to meet her. Give this book a try and enjoy their first in person encounter at his new club 'Come Again'. Favorite Passage: [after unwrapping potted single purple orchid, Alex opens the personalized note on Andrew's stationary] "Read It!" "One rare beauty deserves another. Andrew." Alex realized she was in big trouble. Up next in the Sizzling Encounters series is Wicked Valentine, available now!

A short but seriously erotic read, Mr. Buff is one that you do not want to miss. Alexandra is a heroine all women can relate to. How many times have we noticed that seriously hot man across a crowded train, restaurant, or even through a window and fantasized about what if? Don’t lie, you know you have. Just like you know if you ever had the opportunity to speak and he showed a corresponding interest, you’d be on him like white on rice. Alex has fantasized about the business man in the office building across from her but never had the nerve to so much as find out his name. Instead she’s nicknamed him Mr. Buff for that hard body she has the privilege of seeing first hand every morning from her office window. But she knows she doesn’t stand a chance. A man like that can have any woman he wants, so why would he settle for someone like her. Little does she know that Mr. Buff has noticed her and is more than interested in getting to know her a lot better. A chance encounter leads to an incredibly hot evening and Alex finally gets a taste of what she’s been missing. But can the high profile Mr. Buff convince her that they can have something real or will she let her insecurities end what promises to be something incredibly hot and special? Less than 100 pages, Mr. Buff will bring to mind every woman’s fantasy about the hot stranger they see every day but never have the nerve to approach. With characters and situations so real you’d think they finally really happened, I don’t see how anyone can pass this book by without picking it up. Great characters, realistic storyline and scenes hot enough to fog up your glasses Mr. Buff is a must read!

My Review: Simply put, this is one hot little erotica. I'll admit, it's not real heavy on story, but I didn't feel like it was lacking, and I am telling you...the erotic part of this erotica is good and sexy and HOT! The set-up for this book is like every girl's fantasy. Imagine....every morning you get to watch a HOT guy get dressed after his workout. What a perfect way to start the day! This is how Alex starts her work days and she's pretty pleased with the fact, especially in view of the fact that her last boyfriend was a real jerk who did a number on her self-esteem. She's not so sure she wants to hit the dating pool again, so she is happy with just enjoying her office eye-candy, having no idea who Mr. Buff truly is. On the other hand, Andrew has investigated who the sexy woman across from him is. He's been intrigued with her from day 1, but didn't want to poach on some other man's territory so he's stayed away....until he sees her alone in a club. Then things heat up really quickly, both emotionally and physically. This book does move fast, but I found it pretty believable with where both of these people are in their lives. They've played and are now ready to settle down with something real. It was an interesting set-up for the story...and overall I liked it. There were a few minor things that I could get picky about, but I enjoyed the story enough to overlook them. (short story = short review) I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.

This is an adult read for sure. I enjoyed this short story. It was very hot but also had a plot! Their eyes met from across the street and the desire built on both ends. She didn't know who he was but she referred to him as Mr. Buff and she fantasized about him all the time. One night, they meet face to face and things progress from there. I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. I honestly liked it a lot!

I loved this book. It was such a cute and sexy story. Really Hot. I like a guy that knows what he wants and goes after it even if it humbles him. I like a girl that doesn't want to be made a fool and deals with the problems but then realizes when shes made a mistake and goes for it. Good Read. Great Author. I would recommend this book.

The story was a bit shallow, but i still enjuyed it.
Mebuffy More than 1 year ago
This one was bitter sweet for me.  I like the premise and I liked the characters a lot, but the execution of the plot fell a hair short.  It feels like there’s more dominating sex than storyline, which I don’t normally have a problem with, but it made the relationship feel shallow.  It seemed more based on looks, because they didn’t appear to know each other all that well other than how well they mesh in bed for a lot of the time.  That being said, I thought the ending was adorable and the characters were ultimately endearing and romantic. While at first the connection seems a little abrupt and easy, Mr. Buff doesn’t disappoint and delivers a sexy and enjoyable story that shouldn’t be missed!

## Some of these reviews are longer than this book. Too short to develop the characters properly. What I knew of the hero I liked. He was alpha and possessive in a good way. Couldn't really form an opinion about the heroine. The first sex scene was fun but the rest was just ok. All three times he did her from behind. Not great.

The book description provides a pretty thorough summary of the story so I won't regurgitate it. Hence, here are my thoughts on Mr. Buff: This is the second work of Ms. Angel that I've read & it's no surprise that I love her voice & writing style. Alex and Andrew (Mr. Buff) were two people with an obvious and intense physical attraction to one another. Andrew was delicious and sexy as sin. Oh yes, and did I mention that he's a dominant in bed? Well, he is and you know what that means. Hot sex of course! With vivid details and descriptions the sex scenes were hot, no doubt about it. This book's effect will make your body tingle and toes curl. Be sure to have an ice cold drink ready if you're planning on reading this ;-) While I did enjoy this fun and erotic novella, the story was missing a spark for me. I felt that it needed that extra "oomph." It feel short on the plot and I couldn't really get a feel for the characters in the beginning. Not only that, but I felt that the chemistry was missing between them in the beginning although it did improve as the story progressed. Another thing was that everything that happened in the story felt a bit rushed which was another reason that brought down the rating for me. Despite that, I still thought that this was still an enjoyable, steamy, and sexy fun read. For 97 pages, Mr. Buff was a delicious read to pass the time. For erotica readers looking for a quickie with sex hot enough to burst into flames, this one will not disappoint. *Book Disclaimer: I received a review copy via the publisher, Etopia Press, in exchange for an honest review.

Mr. Buff is like a piece of chocolate, it's a delectable bit of naughtiness consumed in a moment. It's a fast read that brings together two people looking for a long-term relationship with one briefly predictable moment of drama thrown in for the sake of being dramatic. It's a satisfying read with likable characters but nothing that I haven't read before. Mr. Buff himself, Andrew, is extremely sexy and easily able to sweep a woman off her feet. After a brief game of flirty cat and mouse he and Alexandra embark on a super steamy relationship with only one small speed bump along the way that is quickly resolved. Alexandra has been burned by love before but can't help being drawn to the excitement and emotions Andrew offers. Theirs is definitely a case of lust at first sight with some naughty games binding (literally and figuratively) them together into a short story that brings readers a bit of afternoon delight. Ms. Angel has a nice writing style that allows the sexual interludes to seamlessly flow from one incident to the next with a goodly amount of sexual tension. I wish we'd had a more in-depth look into the character's heads but for a short story everything progressed as expected. I enjoyed this brief introduction to Ms. Angel's works and look forward to what she can do given a longer book length.
