About the Author

All my life I’ve been dreaming up stories.
When I wasn’t creating imaginary scenarios, I had my nose stuck in books, and there was one thing I loved more than the escapism—the fact a story can touch me so deeply. I knew early on this was something I wanted to do for others.
Fast forward a few years and the dream almost got lost, but I still couldn’t shake it completely. Now I write sizzling romance with the hope of making my readers’ hearts race like they are falling in love for the first time.

In this novella that is short yet steamy we learn that sex is never simple and that once the heart becomes involved things get even more complicated. For Shey, who's ignored and judged by her mother and overburdened by her boss, life has become endlessly unsatisfying and has made her long to take control to make it better. This need for control is especially apparent in matters of sex where she wants nothing more than a steamy interlude with no sloppy emotions involved. Once she sees the sexy and charming Calvin though it's hard to keep her feelings out of their time together. Calvin is still recovering from a messy divorce and wants no emotions to get in the way of his one-night stands. At least that's what he wants until he lays eyes on Shey. He then throws his plans away, convincing her to engage in a friends with benefits relationship, and undertakes a sensual and super steamy journey to win her over and show her how much fun giving up control can mean. These two are electric together and their sexual interludes are hot and freeing, along with a bit of kink. These two people are emotionally scarred by their pasts and to reach their HEA they must put their pasts behind them. There's a playful and exciting chemistry between them and though the story moves at an almost too brisk pace I still found their evolving relationship satisfying. I enjoyed the overall storyline and how much punch was packed into this short story and look forward to the next installment in this series.

4 1/2 Star Adventure in Falling in Love! Shey Lopez grew up in her mother’s shadow, feeling unwanted, and constantly a failure in her mother’s eye. One thing her mother drilled into her head was that a man will ruin her life if she allows it. Shey has no intention of letting any man take control and ruin her life, her career, or her future. Calvin Jones has been raked over the coals by an ex-wife. Left with nothing, no money, no possessions, and no respect, he’s determined to never let any woman get so close as to burn him again. Each with their own ideas about why a relationship is bad for them, they come together. Eyes meeting across a lobby, libidos set on fire by each other and the looks that each rake over each other but neither willing to give to the other. Calvin attempts his usual seduction techniques on Shey and fails at every turn. She’s too smart for him. Shey attempts to resist his persistence with the declaration that she’s on to him, doesn’t fall for lines, and doesn’t do one-night stands. But soon, they both find themselves in uncharted waters, they break their own rules, they agree to disagree, and they give in to their bodies’ needs and desires. But the thrill doesn’t wane and soon they each find there is something more happening between them, which makes them both run in opposite directions. WHAT’S A GIRL TO DO?, book one of the Indecent Proposals Trilogy by Aimée Duffy is an adventure in falling in love. From the first moments their eyes meet, to their surprise that they are falling in love, learning to trust, and willing to sacrifice for each other, straight to the end with declarations of love, Shey and Calvin suck us in and keep us turning the pages. This trilogy is labeled erotic romance and yes, it’s sexy, steamy, and might not be for everyone but mild in comparison to some that make you sweat while reading. WHAT’S A GIRL TO DO? by Aimée Duffy is a romance built on mutual desire born from an agreement to have sex for sex’s sake and nothing more, but where the body desires, so sometimes does the heart. It’s erotic but not over the top, it’s romantic and definitely over the top, and a delightful read that will have you begging for more. I highly recommend reading this fabulous start to a new series coming to us from the UK. ***eARC provided by author in exchange for an honest and unscripted review.
