I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

This is a good book to start a serial. I haven’t been introduced to Marni Mann before. I have to say that I quite enjoyed reading this novella. Yes, there were things that weren’t as enjoyable. However, overall, it was a good read that makes any reader excited for the next installment.

This novella begins the story of Frankie and Derek. Together, they are so hot. I wish that there was more in the story’s length for me to reall get to know the. However, since this is only the first episode, I am sure that I will get to know them better in the coming installments. I am looking forward to reading episode two which is expected to come out next month.



“Why don’t you come in?”

I was startled again by the sound of him, of his deep, alluring tone. I didn’t realize I was still hovering in the doorway. Closing most of the gap between us, I moved to one of the chairs.

I hooked my bag onto the back of it, his fingers slicing through the air as they reached for mine.

“Call me Derek.” He enclosed my hand with a pressing strength that I assumed was lightened for my benefit.

Though his stare remained on my face, I wasn’t able to keep mine on his. I needed a break, a second to get myself under control.


I had obviously lost that, though I didn’t understand why. Polished men were all I knew, all I had ever been attracted to: groomed and well-dressed, pretty and sharp, even cocky and somewhat selfish. They were certainly never burly or animalistic like Derek. So why was he having this kind of physical effect on me?



Best-selling Author Marni Mann knew she was going to be a writer since middle school. While other girls her age were daydreaming about teenage pop stars, Mann was fantasizing about penning her first novel. She crafts sexy, titillating stories that weave together her love of darkness, mystery, passion, and human emotion. A New Englander at heart, she now lives in Sarasota, Florida with her husband and their two dogs who subsequently have been characters in her books. When she’s not nose deep in her laptop working on her next novel, she’s scouring for chocolate, sipping wine, traveling to new locations, and devouring fabulous books.
