Melissa Jones wishes she hadn’t listened to her girlfriends when they insisted that she relax and take a vacation in Miami. Surrounded by hot, tanned models, she feels like the least attractive female in South Beach. She can’t wait to leave…

Until she meets Jack. Instantly at ease with this tall, gorgeous stranger, she wants him to be more than just a holiday fling. She’ll stop at nothing to see him again after a misunderstanding separates them right before she leaves Miami.

Melissa doesn’t know that back in New York, Jack is a member of the Alpha Club, an x-rated members-only society frequented by billionaires and celebrities…

Is smart, sensible Melissa ready for his world?

My Thoughts

I always wonder if i’m doing myself an injustice when i read novella series – instead of tracking down the entire story – or waiting at least until all are out.  In this case, i think that since this is a new author to me, i was willing to make the sacrifice and pick up book 1 to see if it’s worth it.

What we get here is a prelude or slight intro into things to come.  We meet our leading lady Melissa on the last night of her week long vacation with a co-worker that she’s really not that close with.  Her friend Jessa is the type that turns heads and is out for a new man every night in the hopes of landing someone rich.  While Mel thinks that is a nice idea, it’s not her real motivation.

It’s on this last night that Mel’s sitting in a club biding her time when Jack walks up to her and things start to look up.  He’s attractive, and has a way of making her feel like his lines aren’t really chat-up lines at all.  They quickly find themselves tangled up in each other, but it’s the next morning when Jessa comes back, that Jack ends up leaving without so much as a good bye that makes Mel wonder if things will go back to the ho hum.

After discovering a card that has just a number on it with nothing else, she takes a chance and dials, and this is when things start to get juicy.

I guess now i owe it to myself to continue the journey – so it’s on to book 2.  enjoy this little snippet – it’s 44 pages, so maybe a 30 minute read at most!
