Book Review: Vanilla on Top

~~Not for Readers Under 18~~

                                     Today's review is on Vanilla on Top by C.J. Ellison

Ellisson is no stranger to the erotic genre by any means, and Vanilla on Top is proof of that. This book is well planed, well paced, and very well written. The characters are likeable, believable, and oh so hot, without anything being taken away from the realism of their daily lives.

Centered around the lives of Heather Pierce; a soft-spoken and meek woman, who her friend classifies as a "doormat", and Tony Carmine; a top notch executive in business acquisitions. And though they work in the same building, they have never met. That is until the speed-dating event they both attend.

Heather decides to "put on a new skin" and try something different, and Tony is just the man to try it out on. At work everyone depends on Tony and his decisions, so it's a welcome change when Heather take the reins. Tony in not only surprised when Heather asserts herself and takes control, he is utterly captivated and totally turned on.

After a short and gratifying exchange; at least for Heather, Tony cannot get his mind off of the "black-haired vixen" and vows that she will be his. Likewise, Heather is falling hard and fast in love with him. But when their jobs collide, their relationship may not stand a chance.

Be sure to grab that ice cream, because once you finish reading Vanilla on Top you'll definitely need it in order to cool yourself down!

An instant hit for Ellisson!

Vanilla on Top
By CJ Ellisson

Discover your inner bad girl, and set her free…

Heather Pierce is done being a wallflower, both personally and professionally. Desperate to live a different life for one night, she attends a speed dating event. Maybe here, anonymous unless she chooses otherwise, she can become someone new. When a man way out of her league sits across from her, Heather gathers her courage and takes charge of what she wants, secretly fearing he won’t desire the real person she’s desperate to hide.

Top acquisitions officer and international playboy Tony Carmine is about to close the biggest deal of his career. But then he meets Heather at a speed dating event…and discovers losing control may be exactly what he needs. Her blossoming sensuality occupies his every thought, consuming him with the need to possess the most intriguing lover he’s ever encountered—until he walks into the boardroom and sees Heather on the other side of the negotiating table.
