That special someone is always worth the wait!
All my life I've been the quiet bookworm, the office mouse. It hasn't bothered me. Immersing myself in erotic novels has kept me wriggling on the edge of my seat at work and firmly entrenched in my own fantasy world at night.
Though one thing is bothering me—my damn virginity. If only I could find a sexy bedroom expert to introduce me to the delights of having a lover. Someone handsome and charming, who can rival the hunky alpha males in my books. I have a very vivid, very well-fed imagination—he'll have to keep up.
Then, one bitterly cold night, thanks to a devious, conniving, so-called friend, the perfect opportunity to rid myself of this pesky virginity problem comes along. Before I know it, the heroes in my novels have come alive in the person of Shane Galloway, who's pleasuring me with every trick in the book and wheedling into my heart in the hottest ways possible.
This novel can be purchased as a serial, however, this is the complete novel for you to enjoy.

Reviewed By~Sarah L. Review Copy Provided By~Publisher Hot, sweet, romantic, steamy are just a few of the words I would use to describe this story. Ashley is the quiet bookworm office mouse and when she arrives at the hotel for the weekend on a business reward, she finds out her friend has replaced her boring clothes leaving her only with a sexy red dress to wear instead. Told in first person point of view, we meet Ashley who is a saucy virgin who finally gets a chance to lose that "pesky virginity." She takes a chance by stepping out of her comfort zone and the rewards she encounters over the weekend are extensive. I enjoyed getting to know both Shane and Ashley. Shane is coming off of a divorce and seemed like he was a really sweet guy and perfect for Ashley. I do believe Shane could have handled the conflict later on in the story a bit better. As much as I enjoyed the Happily Ever After at the end (I'm not spoiling anything. It's a romance novel, the HEA is a given!), I was left with some concerns and questions on how it will all eventually work out. Overall though, it was a great story and is definitely being shelved under my favorites.
Ashley, the office bookworm, is 23 and living her non-existent love life through her romance novels. She is off to the company Christmas shindig in the Cotswolds, but thanks to her meddling friend Dawn, she is left with a totally different outfit to wear. She is also looking to cash in her V card... Enter Shane, recently divorced, and Ashley's choice to pop her cherry. I found the 'excerpts' from Ashley's favourite books a hoot to read (reminded me of the Mills & Boons books from my youth!) but this book does show that it pays to let your other half read what is on the e-reader. Copy kindly gifted but already have the paperback book.
A bouncing with joy, squirming with desire, grinning with pure pleasure book. Ashley is the quiet, diligent office worker. Still a virgin, she dreams of being swept off her feet and devoured by a handsome hero like the ones she spends her time reading about. A works party, a sexy dinner companion and a snowed in hotel - could Ashley's wildest fantasies be about to come true? This author has a very unique talent of causing physical reactions from me as I read her work. My heart rate literally races, I get butterflies in my stomach and well, I'll leave the rest to the imagination. Loved it!
