The Fall - Blog Tour & Nikki's Review PLUS Excerpt of SWEET SURRENDERING by Chelsea M. Cameron


She’s his boss. He doesn’t care. This office isn’t big enough for the two of them…

When Rory Clarke ends up hiring the guy she spent one steamy night with to be her administrative assistant, she's determined to keep things professional.
Lucas Blaine has other plans for her. He wants Rory, and it’s hard to resist his stunning blue eyes, chin dimple and the way he fills out a suit. Everywhere she looks, there he is, giving her a panty-melting smile and pulling her away for the most amazing (and satisfying) sex she’s ever had in her life.

What starts off as one sexual encounter turns into multiple trysts in and out of the office and the lines she’d tried to draw so carefully are blurring. But the closer they get, the more Rory realizes that there are things about Lucas she doesn’t know, things he’s hiding from her. She’ll have to decide if she can surrender to her feelings or get out while she still can.

Sweet Surrendering (Surrender Saga #1) by Chelsea M. Cameron

A rich, pretty, executive type chick hooks up with a hot guy in a suit. He has a really killer chin dimple. You know the ones that auto-magically make a guy super fuckable? So yeah, that’s what this book is about.

Ok, I maaaay be way oversimplifying the plot of Sweet Surrendering just a bit. Sweet Surrendering is about Aurora Clarke who isn’t your typical trust fund bitch; she has worked hard for her place at her father’s software company. Rory meets Lucas Blaine when he barges into her office and basically demands an interview to be her assistant, with emphasis on ass. Lucas is pure Alpha hotness and amazingly, so is Rory. Being an alpha girl myself, I LOVED the tension and the sex in this book. It was almost like reading my own personal fantasies. I’m not a huge fan of single nipple piercings on guys, but that’s just me nitpicking. I couldn’t help but really like and strongly identify with Rory. She also has awesome, supportive and funny friends. Ya’ll will just love her roomie, Sloane; she’s such a freaking hoot.

This book reads much like a journal. Which works well for this story; it allows for a lot of humor and makes it feel very authentic and personal. It reminded me vaguely of Bridget Jones’ Diary. What’s the difference, you ask? Aside from lots of fun office sex; this is an entertaining and pretty well written book. I am not necessarily intending a burn there, just being honest. I don’t remember BJD being this easy to read, or this engaging.

This book is funny, witty and pure sexy adult fun. I highly recommend it to romance and erotica fans. It’s dirty, but not gross or overly detailed with the sexy bits. The love story is really very sweet and endearing. It’s a very believable plot and Rory’s repertoire with her girlfriends is exactly how I talk to my good friends. All my dirtybirdy girlies out there definitely pick this book up right away. I’ll be trying out a few of Chelsea’s other titles now and I’m eagerly awaiting Book 2 in this series.
4.5 out of 5 Stars

EXCERPT“I’m, I’m going to get another drink,” I said, getting up and hurrying to the bar without asking if anyone else wanted anything. I just needed to get away for a minute. Try to clear my head.
“What did you think?” a voice said behind me as a warm hand lightly touched my back to tell me that he was here.
I froze and didn’t answer, instead concentrating on trying to get one of the bartenders’ attention.
“You seemed to, ah, like it,” he said, removing his hand, but he was still close. The fact that the bar was so packed could have been responsible, but I didn’t think it was.
The bartender was completely ignoring me, and I had to get away from Lucas Blaine if it was the last thing I did, so I whirled around so fast, I nearly knocked him completely off balance and announced, “I have to pee.”
There were worse things I could have said, I suppose, but the way he smiled in response to my declaration morphed his irresistible face into something that was somehow even more irresistible.
Abort, Abort! I needed to bail, so I shoved him aside and headed for the ladies’ room. I swore I heard him chuckling behind me.
