Have you ever dreamt of meeting a gorgeous hot man who also happens to be the regional manager of a chain of book shops? Yeah, that's my dream too (although please don't tell Mr Keeper Shelf) you could of course just settle meanwhile and read Provoke Me instead.

Kelly Crossman works at the Book Nook and has been lusting after her boss Spencer for three years she's even listed him as number 10 on her list of men she wants to have sex with. However, her list has gone missing and turns up on Spencer's desk... and yes, he's annoyed that he's last on her list.

A chance meeting at Kink the local raunchy club turns into a one night stand which turns into more but Spencer is married to the book store and his position in the company which leads to inevitable heart ache all round.

The steam factor in Provoke Me is exceptionally high Cari Quinn's erotic romance certainly delivers and is guaranteed to make you squirm (in a good way). So much so that the blurb actually warns readers that Kelly and Spencer test the whole "the more the merrier" theory so be warned! I loved all the naughtiness but I also loved Spencer and Kelly's characters and their story. Spencer is bossy and demanding (and he looooves books) but he warns Kelly that he's not misunderstood, he doesn't need saving or loving and that he is just playing along with her but you know there's much more to their relationship than that. Kelly has had a crush on Spencer for such a long time but she's not the type of woman to just have a casual relationship, she does really get Spencer and really falls for him.

If you're looking for steam with a bit of a story then Provoke Me is well worth checking out.

    1. Hehe that was exactly my reaction too!

  2. Thank you so much for the great review! I loved 50 Shades too so it's an honor you chose to read Provoke Me after the trilogy. Kelly and Spencer's adventures aren't finished - they should have another book out next year. :)

    1. Ooohhhh fantastic I'll be adding that to my "must buy" list, thanks Cari:)

  3. Oooh Spencer. I love this man.
    Glad you loved it. That man makes me ache.
