    This was a fun, interesting and sexy book Emilee has worked hard to realize her professional goals, but not having a relationship has been the trade off The book begins with Emilee finally sleeping with her current man on their fifth date Emilee s 5 date rule When he fails to satisfy her, she literally takes matters into her own hand and sends her date on his way But Ben doesn t give up that easily, and convinces Emilee to teach him how to please her The story continues, with us getting t This was a fun, interesting and sexy book Emilee has worked hard to realize her professional goals, but not having a relationship has been the trade off The book begins with Emilee finally sleeping with her current man on their fifth date Emilee s 5 date rule When he fails to satisfy her, she literally takes matters into her own hand and sends her date on his way But Ben doesn t give up that easily, and convinces Emilee to teach him how to please her The story continues, with us getting to know Emilee better, along with her friends Cher, Shan and Dee their books to come out later There were a lot of refreshing parts to this book not every guy is supersized her first real love was described as average size but he knocked her socks off and not every sexual encounter ends with the woman having multiple orgasms When Emilee s friends with benefits arrangement with Ben backfires on her, her planned trip home to South Dakota is great timing to help her heal her wounds She runs into childhood nemesis Jack Bingham and her life really turns upside down There were things I really didn t like about Emilee she could be very selfish and narcissistic, and her insults about Jack were downright mean and juvenile But I did like how she was so open with her friends and conversations with both Ben and Jack And the sex scenes were pretty hot I did like how the story ended and I m looking forward to reading Dee and Vincent s book

    I became a fan of Desiree after reading her Total Control Series and was really looking forward to reading Emilee and let me tell you it didn t disappoint I loved it It s a story of falling in love with the person you least expect and a story of true friendship with lots of hot scenes thrown in I went through lots of emotions laughing one minute and wanting to cry the next definitely worthy of five stars and can t wait for Deanna and Vincent s story next.

    This book was a fine read, nothing too spectacular about it though I felt Emilee was quite callous and that annoyed me The other thing that bothered me about the writing in general was the constant use of the next morning and a week later and the following week not sure why this annoyed me so much but as a segue into the next thought or moment it was used too often in my opinion The use of Bonor instead of erection to me was a bit juvinile as well If you can overlook some of thes This book was a fine read, nothing too spectacular about it though I felt Emilee was quite callous and that annoyed me The other thing that bothered me about the writing in general was the constant use of the next morning and a week later and the following week not sure why this annoyed me so much but as a segue into the next thought or moment it was used too often in my opinion The use of Bonor instead of erection to me was a bit juvinile as well If you can overlook some of these minor things the story is good and entertaining

    I enjoyed the book in general but it didn t have anything that made it stand out from other books Also Emilee winks a lot and I found it very awkward.
