An ordinary girl catapulted into an extraordinary world meets two even more extraordinary men—but what will she do when she discovers their sexy secret?

Fiona Gillespie moved to London shortly after graduating to take advantage of the opportunities the capital could offer. However, months later, she’s still living in a horrid flat and working in a grimy East End pub. The problem is, she doesn’t really know what she wants to do, career-wise. So when she happens upon an advertisement for a job at a plush Mayfair hotel, she jumps at the chance. A great deal of determination and a spot of luck land Fiona her dream role.

But working at the Totally Five Star London is just the beginning. She adores the role and flourishes, impressing her bosses and making her increasingly determined to climb the career ladder.

While her career is flying, though, her love life is non-existent. She hasn’t even thought about men, never mind met or dated one for months, so when she bumps into two gorgeous businessmen in the hotel, she’s surprised to find her head has been well and truly turned. Even more surprisingly, they flirt with her—both of them! She’s drawn to James and Logan, despite feeling that they’re way out of her league.

When a misunderstanding leads Fiona to James and Logan’s sumptuous top-floor suite, she has no idea what she’s about to uncover. Scenes of people-trafficking, drug-pushing and wild sex parties all appear in her active imagination. Yet what she actually sees is something she’d never even considered before, something that piques her interest.

After discovering their sexy secret, what will she do with this new-found knowledge?


Review: This was a really easy read story. It was fast paced, keeping me entertained from the beginning until the very end. I was also pleasantly surprised with the ending which I won’t spoil.

Fiona was tired of her dead end job decided she wanted something different and wasn’t going to wait for it to happen. She took that next step and didn’t look back once. From the very beginning I felt her desperation, the excitement of the new experience and yes the heat of the sex. HOT! HOT! HOT!

Ms. Felthouse made Fiona a character that was easy to relate to. Her experiences for the most part where things everyone goes through from time to time. Some experiences maybe not so much but still they were written on a basic simplistic level that even might excite grandma. The relationship she developed with James and Logan started out fast and although it did slow a bit it was still fast paced enough to hold my interest. I liked that they didn’t take her on any journey she wasn’t comfortable with. They even pulled her out of a place they felt she wasn’t ready for taking her home to explain things. Taking things as slow or fast as she wanted. Ms. Felthouse let us enjoy that journey opening up the possibilities of maybe something different for those ruts…without being afraid of something different.

This really was a fun story with believable characters that were easy to relate to. Ms. Felthouse also described the rooms, area steps of the relationship, the whole sexual encounter in such a way that it was done tastefully. I wasn’t put off by any of it.  I enjoyed this very well written story of Fiona’s new adventures.
