Hidden Heart #1 by Measha Stone (Windy City Series) **Review**

Author: Measha Stone
Publisher: Blushing Books
Pages: 130
***Genre: Erotic Romance***
***Mature Audiences Only 18+***
Jessica Stanley is comfortable in her orderly life as a paralegal at a high end law firm. Having dated her fair share of liars and manipulators, Jessica views men through a pair of thick, cynical lenses. Men are good for one thing in her eyes, and one thing only. Her predictable life is thrown into a whirlwind of new experiences when she meets a dominating man at a casual dinner with friends.

Royce Bradford is a man of intent and is used to getting his way. Until he meets Jessica. She is wound tight, and he finds himself yearning to unravel her secrets and her passions. Jessica declares their relationship casual. She's tempted by his seductive tone and unusually powerful demeanor to give him that much. But for Royce, it's not enough. He wants more. Except Jessica has built a secret tomb around her heart, and it will take a lot more than sensual play times and verbal commands for him to be allowed entrance. Royce never backs down from his desires. He takes up the challenge to seek out her Hidden Heart.


When I first read the synopsis for this book series, it intrigued me. Except for "...used to getting his way". That type of talk in books and real life just annoy me. Anyway...
I knew there would be sexual content, this is an erotica series.However, reading the synopsis showed me that there would be a story line outside of the sex scenes. Which is why I was willing to read the series. Also, I think being a paralegal at a high end law firm would be pretty fun and cool! There was explicit language that I did not care for, I feel that you can write an erotica book without having to use certain words. But it's the authors prerogative. That aside, I did enjoy the story line and watching the story unfold (as well as having the opportunity to read the entire series) was such a pleasure!

Book Excerpt:
“What are you thinking about?” He finally asked.
            “Last night.” An honest answer with no probing from him.
            “The bath?” He grinned.
            “No,” She laughed. “Although, who would have guessed that your shower head could do so much more than rinse my hair. I was thinking about what happened before the bath. I think we can take it off my limit’s list.” A subtle blush.
            “Take what off your list?” A small push.
            She sighed. “Isn’t it enough that I like it? That I’m willing to do it again? Do I have to say it?” Her eyes didn’t meet his.
            “Tell me what it is that can come off the limits list, and tell me you want to do it again. Willing makes it sound like you will endure it- and I remember last night very clearly. You did more than endure it.”
            “What will you do when I get so used to your way of talking that I stop blushing?”
            “Tell me.” He wouldn’t let her veer off course.
            She pierced her lips together and let out a long breath through her nose. She had already resigned herself to obeying, but she needed a moment to realize it. “You can take anal off my list. I would like to do it again.” She shoved a forkful of eggs into her mouth. “And again.” She grinned.
