THE PRICE OF PLEASURE
In relationships, Calisa Harper has clear rules: no expectations, no commitments, no one gets hurt. She doesn't need a diamond ring to bring her happiness. She just needs Jared. Fine, fit, and ferocious in bed, Jared is Calisa's ideal combination of friend and lover. But the no-strings status they've shared for years is about to get very tangled.
Jared Williams is the kind of man most women long for: sexy, successful, and ready to settle down. He knows convincing the commitment-phobic Calisa that forever is nothing to fear won't be easy-especially when his ex turns up with a daughter she never told him about. In a heartbeat, Jared and Calisa's passion goes from fiery to fragile. He wants to hold on to the love they share but is terrified that their next night together could be their last . . .
About the Author
Born and raised in Southeast Michigan near Ann Arbor, Elle learned the importance of reading from her mother. It was also her mother who, later on in her life, gave Elle her first romance novel: Indigo by Beverly Jenkins. From that moment on, Elle became a fan of Ms. Jenkins for life and a lover of all things romance. An old journal she wrote back in college became her first book (which she still wants to publish one day).

This is book 2 in the Edge of Scandal series. This book can be read as a standalone novel, however, the series should be read in order for reader enjoyment and understanding. Jared AKA "Red" met Calisa when she became best friends with his twin sister in college. Now they are all family. Red and Calisa gave in to their attraction and made a "friends with benefits" arrangement and its not working out. Calisa and Red both have pasts and family from their past who have hurt them. This causes problems for them to go forward. It actually causes Calisa to never go forward. She cannot seem to let go of the past. Red has more going on in his life as it is. His twin is having a baby and moving back home. His job is very demanding as being a lawyer tends to be. His own dautgher needs to be found and brought to live with him. Through all this he is loyal and does not want to let go of the love of his life. This is such a sweet and sexy story. These characters are so in love that it almost hurts to read. I loved and appreciated the honesty between them even when it hurts to hear it. This book is just an all around good choice and a keeper for the shelf. I cannot wait to read the next installment in this series! ***This ARC was given by Netgalley.com and its publisher in exchange for an honest review only.
A little different of writing style than I typically read, but I really enjoyed it! Cali and Red had a chemistry that made you want more. More sex, more cuddles, more laughter, more talking, etc. Just more of “them”. A sexy read with lessons in being a survivor no matter what life throws at you. Calisa Harper is one tough cookie. She takes what she wants and doesn’t take any slack for it. What she wants right now is Jared Williams. Red’s twin sister, Sydney, is Cali’s best friend. They’ve known each other for years and were great friends first, and for a few years now have added benefits to their friendship. They keep it on the down low, and always say “no strings”. But Red’s life changed when he found out that he fathered a little girl with an ex. He’s trying to find out where she is, and knowing that he’s a Dad has changed his outlook on life. He wants a happily ever after … but Cali is still running scared from her past. Will Red be able to convince Cali that she can have a happy ending? And will finding his daughter help them, or end them? ** Received free in exchange for an honest review **
Reading is one of my favorite things to do. Opening a book helps me to relax, clear my mind and escape for a little while. Elle Wright was brought to my attention via a previous book that was recommended to me. I did not get a chance to read that yet but decided to try out some of her other novels. His All Night was up for request on NetGalley so I figured I would see what all the fuss was about. It is exciting to me when I discover a story that takes place in my home state. When this happens it is easier to put a picture to a location because you don't have to travel far to visit. That was a huge plus for me with this story. With His All Night, Ms. Write has written a story that is sexy but not explicitly so and addictive.
