Gloria's Secret (Gloria Book 1) by Nelle L'Amour

Gloria Long is the beautiful, self-made CEO of Gloria's Secret, the world's largest retailer of lingerie. While her global emporium is famed for selling erotic fantasies, Gloria's emotional scars inhibit her own sexual desires. Her powerful defenses melt when she meets Jaime Zander, the devastatingly gorgeous advertising guru, who is determined to win not only her account but also her heart by awakening her sexuality--both in the boardroom and the bedroom.

A man who has never heard the word "no," Jaime takes his creativity to the limit to make Gloria fall apart and fall for him. But major obstacles stand in the way--Gloria's Secret's ruthless Chairman, who covets Gloria and is out to destroy Jaime, as well as his manipulative sexpot daughter, who wants both Gloria's job and her hot, new love. Complicating matters further, Gloria harbors a dark, horrific secret, that when exposed, will shatter both her empire and her life. Will she be able to have it all or will the walls come tumbling down?

This full-length adult novel concludes with the suspenseful and steamy sequel, Gloria's Revenge, but for those who want more of Jaime and Gloria, their passionate love story continues in Gloria's Forever.

Wow...very good, very erotic, very sexy, very intriguing and very mysterious! Absolutely loved Gloria and Jaime's characters, they are perfect together. I love how confidant but at the same time vulnerable Jaime is, that makes him so much more sexy. I normally dislike when authors end their books on a cliffhanger just to sell the next book in line but Ms. L'Amour did a good job of keeping the reader engaged not only through the fabulous sex but the mysterious Boris element, I think readers can't help but want to purchase the next book, if only to read more on wildly sexy Jaime! There were a few grammatical errors which only serves to confuse the reader. Also the similarities between the fictional Gloria's Secret and the real life Victoria's Secret was a bit cheesy, even the whole 'Angels' thing. I didn't like that part, the author should have been more original, though the BDSM and sexual toys was a nice touch. The whole comparison to Fifty Shades was also lost on me, everyone I know hated those books... SR

BUY THIS BOOK IMMEDIATELY! Nelle is one of my most favorite authors. I fell in love with her and her writing after reading her Seduced by the Park Avenue Billionaire series. (If you haven't read that yet, buy that one too!) She is an incredible story teller and this book is no exception. I was fortunate enough to Beta read this for Nelle and trust me when I say you will not be disappointed. Gloria and Jamie have an instant chemistry that carries thru the whole book. I don't want to give anything away, just know that you are going to love it! :-)

Nelle L'Amour got me again. She has given me 2 wonderful characters that allowed me to completely escape into their world. Gloria is a self-sufficient, successful female that runs her own multi-billion dollar business. As she looks to start a new product line she seeks out a new advertising company believing "Jamie", as a woman, would understand the lingerie/sex toy industry and how to sell this to women. However Jamie is full of surprises when he shows up as a man, the same man she encountered in an elevator that same morning. The push/pull between Gloria and Jamie is fabulous with these 2 strong willed/independent personalities. When they do finally give in, we, the readers get to enjoy the pantie melting sex scenes. The story does end with a big question which has me wondering what will happen next. Anxiously awaiting part 2!

I'm enjoying this book very much! A must read! Looking forward to Gloria's Revenge!

4.5 stars!! I love that Gloria conquered a horrific past to become a woman on top of an empire. Along comes Jaime and he seems very controlling and like he has an ulterior motive, but Gloria just can’t resist him. He calms her and makes her forget all of the crazy things happening around her. Make sure you read Gloria’s Revenge too! ~Kendra with For the Love of Books Blog
