No guy has ever been able to get me off. It was my little secret. Until I accidentally told the whole world. Spilling something so humiliating on my social media is bad enough; I never expected anyone to actually message me about it. Especially not someone as smug and sexy as Heath "O Maker" James. He tells me he doesn't just think he can get me off - he knows it. As hot as he is, he's a total stranger. I shouldn't give him the time of day.

My name is Lily Harper. I've been a governess for eight years. Now my employer's children are grown, and my mother needs round-the-clock nursing care. My employer has a solution, but I'm not sure I can pay the price. It seems that Lady Montgomery has certain unconventional needs. In return for her help, I am to fulfill those needs.

Good If You Can Ignore The Overuse Of Euphemisms

I did enjoy the narrator quite a bit. I do understand the era and language trying to fit the time, but if a book is going to put itself in the category of erotica I think the ridiculous amount of euphemisms, and only apparently used by the female MC, took what could have been a 5 star story down at least 1 star. However I think that's generous. This young lady embraces her sexuality too quickly to avoid using the words her male counterpart uses. I was cringing. The character, Minnie, was adorable and I'd like to see more of her. Though I can't see this submissive ever being strictly with a woman after her training. She's enjoying him too much.

I've been told I have quite a gift. Hey, I don't just mean in my pants. I've got a big brain, too, and a huge heart of gold. And I like to use all my gifts to the fullest, the package included. Life is smooth sailing...until I find myself stuck between a rock and a sexy roommate, which makes for one very hard...place. Because scoring an apartment in this city is harder than finding true love. So even if I have to shack up with my buddy's smoking-hot and incredibly amazing little sister, a man's got to do what a man's got to do.

The other nannies in this city don't call him the Sexy One for nothing. My boss, the amazingly wonderful single father to the girl I take care of every day is ridiculously hot, like movie star levels with those arms, and those eyes, and that body. Not to mention the way he dotes on his little girl melts me all over. But what really makes my knees weak are the times when his gaze lingers on me. In secret. When no one else is around. I can't risk my job for a chance at something more, can I? But I don't know how to resist him much longer either.

Hi, I'm Chloe Scott. The most awkward single girl in the city. But I'm going to get it together. I am. I'm going to learn how to date like a grown up. I'm going to have an orgasm not given to myself. I'm going to fall in love and live happily ever after. Right after I get out of this interrogation room.

I wish I could take the parts of the 3 main stories I loved most and put them together into one amazing story. The sex scenes from Wrong. The plot twists of Right. And the perfect couple (and added real life anxiety issues) of Trust. I'm looking forward to more from Jana Aston.
Also I think the addition of the male narrator was complete unnecessary.

Fling is a stand-alone novella. I have a crush on my boss' best friend. At least it's not my brother's best friend. Or my best friend's brother. Or...never mind. It's all pretty cliché. And worse? My boss' best friend is his business partner. Which sort of makes him my boss, too. Okay - it's not sort of. It's definite. Gabe Laurent is off-limits. Totally off-limits. Which is fine. I make do with my imagination. He'll never know. Ever. Unless my work bestie passes me an '80s-style teen movie sex quiz during a meeting, and I fill it out. And it ends up in Gabe's hands....

My childhood was perfect. I've led a charmed life, and I'm not going to blow it now by picking the wrong guy. I've got my sights set on my brother's best friend. He's known my family for years. He's reliable and kind and handsome. Sure, he's been avoiding me since I was six. I'm a bit aggressive for him, maybe. But he's the one...right?

Another great narration. Where the 1st book lacked plot twists and was driven by outstanding sex; this story had the storyline but was devoid of the number amazing sex scenes. I did LOVE the ending though.
