He’s neat, always on time, and a professed workaholic. I’m chaotic, always running late, and looking for more from life than just my job. Yet our mutual attraction is undeniable.

The last thing I expected after our first date was to have Simon show up at my office. The warm and funny guy I’d met was now gone, replaced by the cold and calculating man in an impeccable suit. While my professional future is in his hands, I can’t stop thinking about how his hands felt on my body.

Whatever had started between us can’t possibly happen now, but that’s easier said than done. Because the more I try not to think of his sexy smirk or delicious accent, the harder it is to stay away. And if our forbidden office kiss is any indication, his resolve is slipping too.

I’ve sworn I’d never fall for a man who puts his job first.
Too bad my heart isn’t listening.

*** Without Apology is a standalone romance for mature audiences due to steamy bedroom scenes that are in no way contained to just the bedroom.***

Without Apology is a standalone romance that is unrelated to any previous titles by Aubrey Bondurant.

Peyton is a workaholic. Would she like to settle down and pop out a few kids… without doubt, but her life revolves around her job and it leaves little time to meet the perfect man. So when she bumps into a sexy Brit in her quiet corner of Texas she jumps at the chance of a date. Simon is hot and it looks that she could have met someone that could distract her from work… little does she know.

Simon’s only commitment in his life is his work. Lots of work and very little play, along with constant travelling around the US on different projects means the only meaningful relationship he has is with his PA Emma. After a mix-up with a bottle of Champagne he meets a woman that makes him smile. After one date he decides it’s time to make time in his schedule to get to know her better. A distraction from the latest acquisition and the stress that involves… and then someone unexpected turns up to his meeting.

Will two workaholics remain professional? Or will lines be blurred in the quest to find someone special?

So Aubrey has stepped away the brilliant “Something” series to give us a completely new story. I imagine it has been a super nervous journey. A journey where she has said goodbye to characters that we have been emotionally invested in with the hope that she can create a new world with characters we will also fall in love with. I have to say I was a tad nervous when I started it. Happily though I have finished it with a smile on my face, and with the usual anticipation for Aubrey’s next book.

Without Regret is a really good read. I loved both Peyton and Simon, as well as the other characters. The story really centres on the age old problem of finding the perfect work/life balance, and we join the journey as Peyton and Simon are forced to find a way to achieve this; and at times it isn’t straight forward. As I would expect from Aubrey, there are lots of laughs along the way but Aubrey has ensured that these characters stories has meat on the bone. There is a deeper background to both of them that really comes into play in the present, and so although this is an easy read, it isn’t a fluffy hearts and flower story.

Well done Aubrey! Another great book that is a must read for both your fans and anyone looking for a new 1-click author to fangirl over. Roll on Emma’s book!

Book 1 in the Something series. This book is a standalone.

Haylee Holloway is ready to move on with her life. After the death of both her parents, she is determined to save enough money to realise her dream of following in her father’s footsteps and becoming a lawyer. Having moved to L.A to become an assistant at a successful advertising company, she has the next few years mapped out in front of her. But all well laid plans are meant to be broken… Aren’t they?

Josh Singer. Multi-millionaire. Check! Successful business man. Check! Divorced and single. Check!

When Haylee finds herself forced to step into the shoes of a supermodel, what she doesn’t expect is to be paraded in front of the hot company boss, Josh Singer. But her dedication catches Josh’s eye and he soon makes her an offer she can’t refuse, bringing her dreams of attending an Ivy League school one step closer. She just has to maintain a professional distance; easy! Or is it…

Okay, so the whole Millionaire/CEO romances used to be a real guilty pleasure of mine. I devoured them until one day I realised I was just reading the same old crap, rehashed with a different cover and a different author. So I have to tell you that it has been a long time since I have wanted to pick up a book of this type. When I was asked to review Tell Me Something, I don’t mind telling you I was more than a little hesitant. I like my books to have more than the 1 dimensional stories and characters that this genre is awash with. Let me tell you now, Aubrey Bondurant has seriously delivered with her debut novel. It really is a bloody gem of a story.

Unlike so many authors who write in this genre, she has really thought about the story she has put together. She has created two strong protagonists that have their own stories; thankfully no timid shrinking violets to put us to sleep, or the whole dominant, submissive yawn fest that quite frankly is well past its sell by date. What we have is two characters that are equal in their wants and needs and who have great depth, light and shade to them. She takes them and us on a journey, which leads them from the dullness of the past and into a brighter and happier future… well hopefully. You will need to read it yourself to find that out.

But what I loved most about this book was the way it was written. Aubrey mixes serious, sex (very hot sex), angst and light hearted humour so well; creating a book that I really struggled to put down. I am seriously gobsmacked that this is her first book. Let me say, many an accomplished writer don’t have the skills to write in such a flowing way. That takes talent, and Ms Boudurant has it in spates.

 

A brilliant romance full of great characters, sex, humour and angst. I loved it and can’t wait to turn my kindle on and read book 2, Ask Me Something. If you love your CEO/Millionaire reads or if like me you were jaded by them, give it a go… you won’t regret it!
