Publisher's Summary

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.

What a pleasant surprise!

I'm shocked! I really, really liked this story, it was entertaining, a little racy but definitely not over the top. I loved the main female character and I love Sean Crisden's narration much more so than Lucy Malone, he actually could have done the whole audio in my opinion. You won't be disappointed go ahead spend your credit!

Got to watch out for the quiet wallflowers

Any additional comments?

Got to watch out for the quiet wallflowers a - once lit they can go Bang. I enjoyed this hot sexy story. Heather took charge. Nice to have the female dominating for a change in a story. Loved the double narration by Sean Crisden and Lucy Malone. Really suited this book and they sounded great. I will be grabbing the second book in this series once released.

Vanilla Dominatrix

Heather has always let men run over her. That is until she meets Tony. He brings out a new side of her that she thinks never existed, or maybe it just took meeting the right man.

This is a light, sexy listen. It's perfect for killing a few hours listening to a love story with some kinky thrown in. I didn't mind using my credit on it. I would recommend it for a fun listen.

I think I love tony too!

I liked the minimal amount of drama!
I didn't dislike anything. I couldn't stop listening until it was finished in a little over a day. These two are easily a pair of my favorite couples. I can't wait to continue their story! Excited to see where Ellison takes them!

there was beauty in it's simplicity

Something about this story just sucked me in. I wish the sequel was available but alas I will read it hearing Sean Crisden's voice and Lucy Malone's as well. Is there a Sean Crisden fan club so I can sign up? IJS

Double Vanilla for me please!

Spicy, hot, and seductive. CJ Ellison has a way with heat and desire. If you love spice in your life, you will love this story

The narrators made the story work

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The story was very VERY VANILLA. It was cute and quirky love story. The narrators got me through this story.. They are very talented and made it work, even though the story line really was weak.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

There were two, first that Heather decider to do something a bit different to make herself more attractive to men......and so it worked. ( but she worried about it) second that Tony really cared for Heather, SPOILER.....even giving up his job to give her a chance to improve her job.

Could you see Vanilla on Top being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No

Any additional comments?

Not really, I don't understand all the great reviews this got, maybe because of the narrators. But if I had read the book and not listened I never would have finished the story.

Well written, sexy and quick!

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yes - it was an enjoyable story and the chemistry between the two characters was super hot.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

It was a little quick...might have developed the characters and the relationship a little more.

What aspect of Sean Crisden and Lucy Malone ’s performance would you have changed?

They felt a little robotic at times...a little stiff, hard to get into the flow of what they were reading about.

Do you think Vanilla on Top needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

It would be nice - in fact...it is the start to two different series - Heather and Tony's next book is called Vanilla Twist and Avoiding Mr. Right is the second book in the Walk on the Wild Side series.

Any additional comments?

It's a great erotica, with minimal angst - a light-n-steamy read if you will.

Like listening to my old nerdy parents flirt....

Would you try another book from C. J. Ellisson and/or Sean Crisden and Lucy Malone ?

Not likely

What could C. J. Ellisson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Not write it at all

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrators were the WORST part! This book may have actually been a good book but the narrators made me want to slit my own wrists!

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Nope....(Popping the p)

Any additional comments?

I couldnt even finish the story, I tried, I really really tried but decided I would rather chew glass...
