Vanilla on Top by C.J. Ellisson

Discover your inner bad girl, and set her free... Heather Pierce is done being a wallflower, both personally and professionally. Desperate to live a different life for one night, she attends a speed dating event. Maybe here, anonymous unless she chooses otherwise, she can become someone new. When a man way out of her league sits across from her, Heather gathers her courage and takes charge of what she wants, secretly fearing he won't desire the real person she's desperate to hide. Top acquisitions officer and international playboy Tony Carmine is about to close the biggest deal of his career. But then he meets Heather at a speed dating event…and discovers losing control may be exactly what he needs. Her blossoming sensuality occupies his every thought, consuming him with the need to possess the most intriguing lover he's ever encountered—until he walks into the boardroom and sees Heather on the other side of the negotiating table.

C.J. Ellisson lives in northern Virginia with her husband, two children, two dogs, and a fluffy black cat who makes her sneeze. Unlike most full-time authors, she's also battling chronic illness. C.J. works daily to put her Lupus into remission and continues to battle numerous bacterial infections while her immune system slowly attacks her body. She turned to writing when she could no longer work outside the home and claims the escape of penning contemporary fantasy, erotica, and erotic romance has helped save her sanity.

I couldnt even finish this book! I hate when the girl is the dom. I picture a feminine guy in this story with a girl who you never really get to know. Just not my kind of book.

HO-LY COW!!! I absolutely LOVED this book!! Heather is my hero! She is what every woman dreams of being! Not to spoil anything, but that ping pong paddle scene was HAWT!!! But the book is not just sex, even though the sex scenes will leave you breathless. This book has an excellent plot. It's about finding yourself all over again but for the better. I have read other books by C.J. Ellisson and enjoy her work immensely! I can't wait to read more!!

This book is hot hot hot! This is one of those books that draw you in and captivate you all within the first chapter. I mean who would have thought speed dating could be so much fun?!?!? Heather steps out of her comfort zone and becomes a woman Tony just can't get out of his head. Vanilla On Top switches between both Tony and Heather's POVs. C.J. did an amazing job writing this book. The characters worked well together and we're well developed. The story was also well developed. I cannot wait to read the second installment. This one blew me away!

Based on the blurb, one would assume this book would be like a certain trilogy that involves an individual named Grey. Where those books had no real direction and plot, "Vanilla on Top", actually weaves a story between the two leads where the connection is more genuine. Both leading characters are searching for something that has been missing from both their career and personal lives and through time and each other they are able to find what they are looking for. Although in the case of Heather, it was a bit of a stretch that limited acting lessons can allow her to change her persona but I guess the idea is that it was a side of her that she never got to show. All in all, I felt the connection was believable and it is told in a way that captures your attention.

Very Very Very Good! I really enjoyed this book. I feel like Heather does what almost every girl wants to do. She is shy and basically lets most people walk all over her, but then she meets Tony at speed dating. Tony is a workaholic who complains about wanting someone else to tell him what to do every once in a while. Heather takes him up on it and then some.  This story is very HOT and will leave you wanting MORE!  I recommend this book. It was a quick and enjoyable read.

While the pace of the book is fast and thrilling, CJ Ellisson managed to ingrain a good bit of anticipation and depth into her plot. The scenes are HOT! The kind that will leave you fanning yourself as the room gets inevitably warmer. As a woman, you can’t help but want to put yourself in Heather’s shoes, especially when she’s calling the shots! :-p We should be taking notes, ladies. It’s almost a manual. The interaction between the protagonists and their respective best friends felt real, allowing me as a reader to connect with them as well as find them relatable. The many facets of Tony are a treat to unwrap throughout the book and make him more than your typical lead. Overall, I am very pleased with the book and can’t wait to see what else CJ has in store for us. Perhaps Marcus and Carla hit it off? Wink wink.

This book was such an awesome read! The story line is so smooth and you just can't put it down. I started the book tonight and couldn't put it down until I had finished it. I highly recommend it as a must read.

Steamy, sweet, and more importantly, liberating, Vanilla On Top is the best erotic romance I've read in a long time. C.T. Ellisson is a fantastic writer. Fifty Shades of Grey fans need to read this and see how erotica is supposed to be done.

I personally did not like this book. The story line is boring and I found myself skipping pages to see if something exciting was coming next. I couldn't relate to the characters but I give it 3 stars because some pages were very interesting.

Easy light read, can be read in a day. Made me literally laugh out loud a few times. Predictable, but still an enjoyable read, looking forward to the other two books.

I truly enjoyed Heather and Tony little merger.... Being who she really was inside after a moment of thinking outside the box not only brought Heather a new job but love in the real form.  I guess Tony proved men can be persuaded given the right paddle boost. It not only had him aroused but brought him from a stressful environment. He was a great man and enjoyed a little power exchange. This was a nice read but I wanted Brian to get fired SO bad. LOL, the jerk.

I loved this story line. The characters had desires that they were reluctant to share with others but together they figured out how to make them a beneficial thing between them. While figuring out their sexual issues, it turned out that they started falling for each other and were quite well matched as a couple. They were both able to finally be happy both emotionally and sexually. I highly recommend this for a short but hot read for a cold night under the covers. Thanks again C.J. just another good read from a great author!!

C.J. Ellisson's Vanilla on Top is steamy, funny, serious and not quite believable. However, that did not stop me from enjoying this story of a shy kitten turning into a lion. It has strong plot development, even stronger characters and it’s all about the relationship. The characters do not whine, abuse or generally annoy each other or the reader. Heather is a wonderful main female character; Tony is great too but at times a bit over zealous. The switch back and forth from POV was interesting not distracting. Good read for an evening alone, because once you start you will want to finish.

Ohhhh wow!!!! I loved; loved; loved it!!!!! Read the book in one sitting. Such a great story to relate to; Heather is such a mixture of damsel in distress to Xena Warrior and Tony is the man of my reading dreams.... They truly captivated me and can't wait to continue with the rest of the series.
