Synopsis:

Hi, my name is Delilah Sampson, and I am a self-proclaimed “frump girl.” My world came crashing down the day I walked in on my boyfriend having sex with my boss, rendering me single and jobless. A new job fell into my lap as the secretary of the gorgeous, rich, powerful, and mighty cocky controlling partner at the Santino Law Firm. I spend my days trying to please a demanding boss, keeping my lustful thoughts to myself. Until one night, when my best friend drags me to a club, and I fall for a man whose true identity I will never know.

See, at Club Masquerade, everyone wears a mask and a nametag with a fake name. Also, on your nametag is a number that you are assigned when you come into the club, which is linked to an in-house messaging system; no one is permitted to speak, which ensures that identities are kept secret. I meet my lover every Saturday at 9:00 pm sharp. We text and email constantly when we are not together, and I have somehow fallen in love with him.

But, then there is Nick Santino. He is the partner that I can’t keep my eyes off. Unfortunately, the only reason he hired me is because he is not attracted to me and all of my frump glory.

Fortunately, for me, I am a kick ass secretary, so he keeps me around. Like many men in his position, Nick is used to getting what he wants, when he wants it; all without commitment, of course.

So when he finds a woman that he is both physically and emotionally attracted to, he finds himself in unchartered territory – love. And I can do nothing but be jealous from the sidelines – lusting for a man I can’t have, and loving a man I can’t know.

Hey there, Delilah is book 1 of a Taboo Love series, in which we tackle the boss/secretary relationship. Each book will be a stand-alone with a HEA, but will have a few reoccurring characters.

Excerpt:

I cup her face in my hands and lean down, brushing my lips over hers. Just the simplest connection and I have to stifle a moan.

My heart starts pounding madly in my chest. Jesus Christ, I’m barely touching her! She gasps softly and that’s the end of it – I lose control. I thrust my tongue into her mouth and kiss her like I’ve never kissed a woman before. The passion and pure need are feelings that I’ve never encountered before. Her hands ball up in my shirt and she kisses me back just as fervently. Oh god, I’m so hard it is bordering on painful.

I’m just about to pull back because I swear I’m going to cum in my pants when she goes and sucks on my tongue. I’ve never had a woman do this to me before, but she’s got my tongue and she’s swirling her tongue around mine, just like she would probably do to my dick if it was in her mouth. Fuck! I’ve got to get out of here!

She is driving me insane, and if she wants to make it out of here without me fucking her brains out on the dance floor, then I need to go! As soon as she lets my tongue go, I pull back. We are both panting like crazy, as we stare at each other for a moment.

My Review:

**Spoilers May Be Present **

I want to thank the authors firstly for providing me with an ARC copy of this book to read and review for this blog tour 🙂 Much Loveage ❤

This is the first book to of read by M.D Saperstein and Andria Large and I loved it, can’t wait for future books to come out.

Delilah….AKA Frump girl. Such an honest, witty, intelligent girl, who isn’t materialistic *waheyyy*

She like most women in today’s society has self-esteem issues, issues with her image, due to the constant nagging/bullying in her younger years.

The author divulged awesomely in the aspects of going through low self esteem issues and ways of trying to see the “real” you not the image that has been drilled into you making you feel less worthy than you are!

FAN FRICKING TASTIC LADIES!

Nick…..H to the O to the T Boss man! Definitely wouldn’t say no to this god of a bloke!

He is sexy, funny, and ultimately, a real gentleman at heart.

“Can you give me a chance to make it up to you? To prove that you can trust me again?” I beg.

Yes, this is me, Nick Santino – high powered, always in control, non-committing, (former) ladies’ man – now officially begging for a woman’s attention.

I always say this but I just LOVE it when author’s write in different P.O.V’s, you get a better understanding of what’s going on, and what the character’s are truly feeling and going through, emotionally and physically 🙂

This has soo much laughter in, the banter and witty remarks between Delilah and Nick are so cute, and heart-warming.
They get to know one another on a personal level before forming any sort of relationship.

Yes she’s his secretary, and yes he’s her boss, but hey, you can’t mess with cupid!

Ohh did I mention, the seriously H.O.T sex scenes that are in this book, hell to the Yes!

You should read just based on this fact!

I lean in close to her face and whisper, “All of you orgasms are mine. 

I am the only one who is allowed to make you come; no touching yourself whilst I’m not around.”

I loved the idea of club M! Masks and all, no speaking, messaging a form of communication 😉 *Katchingggg*

I loved her best friend Charlie to…..Hmmm I’m thinking that in book 2 Charlie & Calvin are going to hook up *hint hint*

Either way I can’t wait to get my hands on it 🙂

About The Author’s

Andria Large Bio

Andria is married and a stay at home mother with two crazy little girls and two psychotic cats. She doesn’t go anywhere without her precious iPhone and a purse full of animal crackers. She used to be obsessed with the Backstreet Boys, but now is only mildly obsessed (still goes to every concert when they are in town). She loves cartoons and Disney movies, and can probably recite every line from Dumb and Dumber. Humor is a must in her life; otherwise, it would be completely boring. Pepsi is her weakness, along with anything chocolate. She can’t sing to save her life, but she pretends she can when she is alone in her car with the music blasting so that she can’t hear herself. And don’t mess with her family because she will fuck you up. She loves to read Romance. Paranormal, Scottish, Military, Police, Firefighters, Athletes, Cowboys and M/M are her favorite. She is not so much a fan of YA, though. If you haven’t been able to tell from reading her books, she likes – whether she is reading them or writing them – lots of hot steamy sex. Andria loves her fans and is always willing to chat. She works hard on her books, does not get offended easily, and has a pretty thick skin when it comes to negativity toward her work. She welcomes constructive criticism because she feels that is how one betters themselves, by taking that constructive criticism and using it. Andria’s books are her art, they are pieces of her, and she can only hope that people will like what she does. For those who don’t, she asks that you be respectful of her art. You don’t have to like it, but you don’t have to be mean about it either.

M.D. Saperstein Bio

Hi! My name is M.D. Saperstein. I am currently a stay at home mom with my two gorgeous kids. I wasn’t always a full time mom, though. After graduating from the University of Florida – Go Gators! – I attended law school at Stetson University. I spent the next 10 years practicing law. I also spent some time counseling mental health patients in an out patient psychiatric hospital. But, until having my own children, my most rewarding job by far was licensing families to receive abused and neglected foster children.

So, that brings us to today. In my spare time, while my children were napping, I started editing novels for other authors. The more I edited, the more ready I felt to write my own. I just needed a new and exciting story line. Once Hey There, Delilah was conceived, the ball starting rolling very quickly. I hooked up with fellow author Andria Large, and we decided to tackle it together. Best decision ever!

I spend most of my free time with my husband and children. But when I get some “me” time, I love to read. Mostly romance and erotica, but I don’t discriminate – a good book is a good book, no matter the genre.

Excerpt:

Wow,” Natalia breathed as they reached the top of the peak. She closed her eyes as the cool breeze ghosted against her face.

Pine and oak fragranced the air, causing a smile to slide across her face. Opening her eyes, she surveyed the landscape.

Trees spread out for as far as the eye could see. The sun hung low, filling the sky with an orange pink hue. She spun around relishing in the fresh scent and the complete seclusion the trees offered. Crickets chirped and she could hear wildlife scuttling about. “This is amazing,” she said, focusing her gaze on Gene.

“My father worked hard on the landscape back home, but I don’t think it will ever be this secluded.”

“It is nice at your ranch,” Natalia commented. “I grew up in the city anything outside the city limits is rustic to me.”

“And you weren’t around any other wolves?” Gene questioned.

“No. My mother taught me what she knew. Which was not much. Her only experience was with my father, Luis.”

“I meant what I told you. I want to help you – teach you are ways.”

Natalia moved to the edge of the hill and stared down over the edge. Taking the chance and trusting him was about as appealing as jumping to the rocks and brush below. Still, she wanted to believe him.

“How do you do it?”

Swallowing she held her breath as he came to stand next to her.

“What?”

“The partial shift. How do you do it?”

Natalia turned to look at him quirking her brow up as he came to stand in front of her. His heels touched the edge of the cliff and she blinked surprised how vulnerable he was allowing himself to be.

Her breath caught in her throat as he placed his hands on her shoulders, his chocolate eyes meeting hers. Her pulse spiked and a shiver ran up her spine as anticipation rolled through her.

“Close your eyes,” he said quietly.

Her eyes widened, heart accelerated and she fought the urge to lean into him. The innocent touch seemed anything but to her.

“You need to focus, close your eyes,” he urged, seemingly oblivious to her discomfort and arousal.

Clearing her throat, she closed her eyes, needing to escape his gaze.

“Now, think about your wolf. Your sight specifically. Imagine you are running. The wildlife and trees are whirling by you as you survey your surroundings. Everything is clearer, sharper.

Inhale the pine and oak, the dirt and leaves.”

Natalia forced her breathing to even out, letting his voice guide her as she imagined what he was saying. Warm puffs of air hit her face as he spoke. She let his voice soothe her until she found herself lost in his words.

“Open your eyes, Talia,” Gene said softly.

Fingers grazed her cheeks and gently cupped her face. Startled, she opened her eyes, gasping at their close proximity.

Blinking, she stepped back taking him in. His face appeared clearer, stubble poked out from his pores. Gene’s brown eyes stared at her allowing her to see her goldish eyes reflecting off of them. Turning away from him, she took in the leaves noticing the fine lines of each of them and the tiny insects that gathered on the trunk of a tree.

“All you have to do is focus. How do you feel?” Gene asked.

“Good,” Natalia beamed. In fact, she felt better than she had in weeks.

“If you follow the same mindset when you transition I think it will help. The important thing to remember is you are still in control even if you are the wolf. Embrace who you are don’t fear it.”

“I’m not afraid of-“

“Yes, you are. You’re afraid of what we are because you don’t want to be like Juarez. You can be the wolf and still be yourself,” Gene said. He took a step to the side. “The wolf doesn’t make us do anything we wouldn’t already do. It’s just like with humans there are humans that are just evil. The same rule applies to wolves. There are wolves that are just bad too.

On the flip side, there are good humans and wolves. It’s what we do that defines us not what we are.”

Gene sighed as he looked over the edge of the cliff. “I’m heading back. The house is a quarter of a mile that way,” Gene said pointing as he turned in the direction they’d come. “You should try shifting.”

Natalia nodded waiting until she heard the dirt and gravel crunching beneath his feet to turn around. He’d helped her.

Swallowing, she watched as he disappeared into the trees.

Satisfied she was alone, she undressed and prepared to transition.
