EXCERPT FROM AMAZON:
The Red Diary, an erotic tale from rising romance star Toni Blake, takes readers on a sensual adventure in a story of seductive retribution.
Lauren Ash keeps a private journal filled with her deepest, most intimate sexual fantasies... When house painter Nick Armstrong finds it, he plans to use the red-hot content to break Lauren’s heart—a proper revenge for the wrongs his family suffered at the hands of Lauren’s father so many years ago.
Racy and fun, intimate and touching, The Red Diary features rich, compelling characters and a suspenseful, passionate escapade that you won’t want to put down.
Wow! This story was spicy and I like it! I was given this book through Avon as part of the Avon Addict program. I was not compensated for my review.
Lauren Ash comes from money but she works hard for her dad's company. She is the good girl that everyone thinks is bad. Since she is the type that needs to be in love to have sex, she keeps a journal of all of her fantasies. These are not for the faint of heart but since she is the only one that will ever read them she completely bares her soul in her journal.
Nick Armstrong has worked hard to provide for his sister and brother ever since Lauren's dad destroyed his family by buying his father's half of their joint company. Nick never forgot how far they fell or the consequences of his father's drinking.
When he takes on a painting job at Lauren's house he figures it is the perfect way to extract some revenge. He never expected to find anything like her red diary and can't resist reading it. What he reads is hot and he never expected something like that from the little heiress. Nick digs deep and decides to use her fantasies against her. He doesn't realize that the person he thought she was is just a mirage for people to see.
This story carries passion to the brink and back again. I was mesmerized by the emotions that were brought to the forefront and touched by the pain that Nick felt at his father's confession. How do you ever recover from knowing that your father wanted to destroy you?
This is my first book with this author and I can tell you that it will not be my last.
