4 'smuttylicious' stars

Timber Towers has a refreshing premise - is a real estate romance. When I first heard about this series, I thought it sounds boring. I mean real estate is as boring as banking. Unless you add in murder ala Dexter style, I don't know what can make me excited. But oh lordy, this book is freaking hot and it got all my juices flowing. Eck! Sorry for TMI. 

I have to give it to the author for her ability to make real estate sounds so goddamn sexy with phrases like,

If this lobby was a woman's body, he was taking his time with her, caressing her neck, kissing down her navel, licking between her legs.

When it comes to architecture, I crave texture, scent, a visual flavor so unique it makes my mouth water.

I think I finally found another dirty talker in town that can go against Jameson Kane. They both can talk dirty to me and I will spontaneously combust right there.

"When I tie you up and lick every inch of your body, things like whether I'm wearing flannel or a ten thousand dollar suit aren't going to matter. You won't be aware of anything other than my tongue. I promise."

"Do you want my attention? Do you want me to worship your sweet little cunt?"

Yes, please!!

It was so inappropriate. So dirty. So damn freaking hot. Frankie doesn't stood a chance with him. All the poor woman can do is to melt into a pile of goo.

I let out half a gasp, half a sigh, and something of a moan at the end of it all.


Do not read this in public, or you might caught blushing all over.

Now what about story? What is the deal with Timber Towers? There is a minor revenge subplot with Derek seeking vengeance. But hold your horses before you thinking that is one big convoluted plot because it isn't. To me, the plot serve as Derek's motivation and distraction to me from all the sex, but it isn't as strong as I hope it will be. 

Overall, if you are looking for a super hot read that will left you panting for more without all the drama and angst, this is your book.
