This book was wonderful, though I’m dying to know the rest. First, before the full review, here is the description.
For fans of Fifty Shades of Grey and Bared to You comes a wickedly erotic new novel of innocence, desire, and unbridled pleasure.
Delaine Talbot has a secret. When a matter of life and death threatens to tear apart her family, Delaine makes the ultimate sacrifice. She auctions herself off at Chicago’s most exclusive erotic club. Now she belongs to Noah Crawford, a wealthy mogul who introduces her to a seductive feast of the senses, awakening desires she only dreamed about.
Noah doesn’t know why Delaine sold her body for a cool two mil. But it’s the perfect business arrangement. The inexperienced beauty will learn to satisfy his every sensual need, yet never touch his heart. Almost immediately their relationship generates heat—in more ways than one. When they fight, they take no prisoners. When they love, they show no mercy. When they’re together, they never want to leave each other’s arms. But soon, their intense, physical bond will take an unexpected turn—evolving into something neither has bargained for: the promise of a lasting love.
Praise for A Million Dirty Secrets
“Erotica is at its best in the opener to Parker’s Million Dollar Duet series. Super-sexy with snappy dialogue, this wonderful Cinderella tale begins the search for Lanie and Noah’s happily-ever-after. . . . The sequel cannot arrive fast enough.”—RT Book Reviews (4-1/2 stars)
“Smoldering sex scenes and a cliffhanger ending will have erotica fans panting for more.”—Publishers Weekly
“This book has some yummy scenes. The chemistry is absolutely there, the back and forth bantering, the punishments, and the tender moments. . . . I am looking forward to the next one for sure as we are left with a bit of a cliffhanger . . . man I hate (love love love) that!”—The Reading Cafe
“Explosive . . . with sex, lust, love and secrets . . . If I had to sum this story up in three words, they would be thrilling, dangerous and addictive. If you like E L James then you will love this new erotic duet novel from C. L. Parker.”—23 Review Street
A Million Dirty Secrets is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.
Now, first off: I think comparing this book to 50 Shades is cruel, because it is ten times better than 50. While the characters did a few things-sexually-that I didn’t particularly like (that’s personal preference, and not something against the author or the story itself, and has no effect on the rating) I really enjoyed the erotic story line. It’s nice to see an Erotica that doesn’t have anything to do with werewolves or vampires (well, except Delanie’s sexual fantasy with Noah, but you’ll have to read it to know more about that). The main character, Delanie (Lanie) Talbot is sarcastic, funny, and has an attitude. But, at the same time, she’s experiencing so many new things in her life, that she has fear, apprehension, and worry mixed in. She is reminiscent of Charley Davidson in the grave books by Darynda Jones. Speaking of Mrs. Jones, the writing in this book was obviously inspired by Darynda’s writing, but has CL Parker’s own little twist to it. There were times in the book when I thought that Lanie and Charley could have been sisters, separated at birth. Now, as for Noah… Well, I was back and forth on him for a while, but in the end I had fallen for him just as hard as everyone else had. He’s an arrogant pain in the ass with an attitude, but he’s a sweet one, with air of romance that just makes you swoon; hard. I’m looking forward to reading more Lanie and Noah.
Pick up A Million Dirty Secrets by CL Paker; you won’t be sorry.
