A Five Star Review and Back Cover Copy!!

Title: Bonded
Author: Ann Wesley Hardin
Publisher: Red Sage Books
Publisher URL:
Reviewer: Signey E. Scott
Rating: 5 Stars
Heat level: O

Sela Wilson loves her Girl Weekends with her best friends Carla and Robin. This time, they are partaking in the seasonal Fantasy Weekend where rich women could bring their fantasies to life. That is if their fantasy hasn’t called in sick and there is no one to replace him. Daniel Bond is not used to loud mouthed, opinioned, independent women making him drool. He is definitely not prepared for Sela. Once he decides that he will be her replacement Hero for the weekend, he is a lost cause because Sela demands one hundred percent customer satisfaction. The customer is always right, right?

Bonded was one of the funniest quickies I have read in a while. Ms. Hardin wrapped me in the excitement of Fantasy Weekend and I felt as if I were experiencing Sela’s emotions. The writing was very detailed and I laughed out loud quite a few times. The characters and situations were very realistic. I could visualize Sela getting louder and louder in the lobby of the hotel waiting for her Hero to show up and then getting an inexperienced replacement that had her deciding her toy, Charlie, would be her Hero for the weekend. Sela made me laugh with her, “I know you didn’t” attitude. I admired her tenacity and drive for life and living it to its fullest.

Daniel, Daniel, Daniel. Daniel was an alpha male through and through. He thought he had everything he needed and if he didn’t, he could buy it. But the thing he needed and desired no one was brave enough to tell him about, until Sela came along and had nothing to lose nor gain from giving her opinion. Or so she thought.

The attraction they felt towards each other was instantaneous and consuming. The teasing and sex that went on would have burnt my fingerprints off if I were holding the book. I loved both of these characters because they showed that you can live a full life after love and you always need someone to tell you the truth about yourself. Pick up this book but be prepared to laugh and tingle.

And if that great review isn't enough, the back cover copy for Bonded just came in!

When Sela Wilson requested a gothic hero during Fantasy Weekend at a luxury hotel, she didn’t expect to be stuck with the worst actor ever. Daniel Bond, womanizing, billionaire hotelier, didn’t expect to have to go under cover to play the part, nor did he expect Sela to ditch him for a dildo. But soon, his offer to fulfill all her sexual fantasies has him peeking out from under his mask, and finding that only Sela can coax out the real man he is inside.

Oh, I'm still here in my little space, Ann-babes. Plugging along in the DDJ (that's Damned Day Job :P ) and living day-to-day for the time being.

I'm working on a couple of projects for EC as usual, and waiting to hear back from my editor extraordinaire on one that's currently in-house. That's all that's fit to print right now (or at least for public consumption... ;) )

Drop me an email one of these days and catch me up with All Things Ann!
