Sometimes love can be cruel. Not that Roxane has fallen in love but the one man she found interesting has crossed from her personal life into her professional one which makes life complicated.

Parker Williams doesn’t take no for an answer, not that Roxane would deny him anyway.
He has his own set of rules that must be followed while hers are being crossed through like a to-do list.

When a person falls in love, it’s supposed to be easy but it’s much more complex than either realized it could be.
Roxane’s control is slipping along with every opinion she had about love. This time, it feels different. This time, it finally feels right.

Slowly she realizes how much is at stake, but she is only concerned about losing one thing—her heart.


Oh my word Parker Williams is back with a sexy vengeance. 
I have been waiting so very impatiently for Vol. 2 to finally grace my Kindle.

And man, oh man was it worth the wait! God I am so loving this series big time.

We catch back up with Rox and Parker and immediately the sparks, witty banter, humor and sexual tension is ever present. From the first page I was sucked back into the single life of Roxanne VanBuren and her crazy world where she has so many rules in place for dating which she tries in vein to follow in hopes of never falling in love again. 

The same world that was quickly thrown off kilter by the sexy alpha yumminess that is Parker Williams in Volume 1. Gawd that man is just- fark! 

Deciding she can no longer deny her attraction to Parker, Rox begins to let her guard down around him and I'm soooo flipping excited! I have been rooting hard for her to give Parker a chance. While failing repeatedly at maintaining her dating rules where Parker is concerned we start to see the tough as nails man-eater begin to crumble at the hands of the sexy being that is Parker Williams. Despite both trying to follow their rules, which they both happen to keep breaking for each other we see Parker and Rox connect. Not only do they connect but they fall hard despite all of their stupid notions, attempts rules and best of all trying to figure out what the hell is happening between them. But thank goodness for us while they work on figuring their sexy relationship we are treated to one hell of a hot read. 

Lyra delivers with one hell of an instalment and I have to say she nailed it with Volume 2. 
Holy hell, this is one sexy assed read!

Parker is a relentless man who is used to getting what he wants, and this man clearly wants the reluctant at love Roxanne VanBuren. I absolutely loved how Ms. Control herself didn't stand a chance with this alpha and I fucking loved every minute of watching her slowly loose her resolve, her fight and basically cave. I so loved watching her walls crumble and her heart opening up to the possibilities of a life with Parker.

With a ton of sexual tension and a shit load of build up this book was HOT even thought it seems like it took forever for the sex to finally happen, there were heaps of hot dirty lines,  along with a ton of close encounters to help build the anticipation. And fuck me, when it finally does come to all out sex, it was sizzling.

Rox and Parker are perfect! Gah, I LOVE these two!!!!! There finally where I want them to be despite a shit phone call that had be almost breaking my Ipad, but thank Mrs. Parish for not torturing us for too long.


Thank fuck for empty apartments and new neighbour’s, ones who know just how to smooth things over!

"Are you fucking kidding me, Rox?" Stacey screamed into the phone. There was music blaring in the background, and I heard the clicking of a camera lens and loud flashes. I could only imagine how many umbrellas were set up for the shoot. She was at her next spread for Cover Girl, but decided to stop the presses just for me.
"I wish I were," I said, remembering his lips on my thighs and the taste of him in my mouth. "He’s intoxicating." My words seemed to drift away into the open space of the car as I accelerated onto the 610 Loop.
"Oh my god," she said. "The airiness in your tone, the pauses between your sentences—you fucking liiiiiiiiike him, don’t you?"
I couldn’t admit that, not right now. It was too soon, way too soon. Actually, only hours after the incident, as I now termed it. I couldn’t even tell Stacey what exactly had happened, just that something had happened. Her imagination was dirty, so I’m sure she could figure it out with just a few hints. Honestly, if I even said a peep about it, or about how Parker Williams made me feel, she would be declaring her victory. I might as well just hand her the crown.
The incident had shifted everything I once thought I believed, and everything I had tried to avoid. I couldn’t deny that when I closed my eyes, his face was the one I saw. Those piercing blue eyes were burned into my retinas. I knew the smile permanently attached to my lips existed for one reason. Or if one wanted to get technical, it was the messy brown hair, blue eyes, and that sexy voice that almost made my knees go weak.
Oh my god.
Was I having a revelation?
Yes, I was having a revelation. Maybe I wasn’t in control of how I felt anymore? But that couldn't be. Not after being with someone only once. The chase was over, wasn't it? Fuuuuucccckkkkkk me! The heart was trying to control me, but I couldn’t let it. Even the heart had weaknesses. Love was the equivalent of stabbing a dagger into a heart and twisting. Okay, maybe it wasn't that dramatic, but it felt like it to me.
"No. Of course not," I said after a long pause. I was lost in my thoughts, and Stacey, being the way she was, noticed.
"I wish I could see your face right now, because I know you’re lying. I know you are trying to feed me lies, Roxane VanBuren, and I’m not having it. I want every single dirty little detail of what happened, and not just, ‘we moved to second base,’ got it?"
A man’s voice yelled in the background about how models should get off their damn phones and actually work today.
"I’ve got to go. Darrell is being such a douche. I swear his glitter panties are in a knot right now … but this isn’t over."
More yells followed, and she said her goodbyes after cursing loudly that it was an emergency and people needed to shut the hell up.
My heart raced at the thought of what was happening to me. I had to deny this at all costs. I couldn’t be in like. I had never fallen for someone so soon. No way. And if I started admitting it, even to myself, it would be trouble.
I knew it sounded so silly to be in like, but it was the first step to love. All I could think of was that stupid childhood chant that we all sang to agitate people who were in like. Roxy and Parker sitting in a tree … next thing there would k-i-s-s-i-n-g, love, then a baby in a baby carriage. Hell no. No. There were no babies in my future.

After failing miserably at love, Roxane VanBuren swears off men but not before her determined best friend shows her all the advantages of being single. After a wild weekend full of sex, old-flames, and secrets, Roxane is desperate to forget it ever happened. 
But she learns it isn't that easy.
Since becoming the President of VanBuren Investments, she knows how important it is for her professional and personal life to remain separate from one another. If the two were to mix, the rumors could possibly ruin her reputation, which is bad for her and bad for business. To avoid that, Roxane allows rules to define and guide her every move. Unfortunately for her, Parker Williams is determined to break them all, one at a time.


OMG!! Eeeppp! Squeee!! YAY!!!

I love love love the serial novella and was soooooo super excited to find Single by Lyra Parish. Thanks to a trusted book friend who just knew I would love it, my newest serial fascination was born.

If you have haven’t taken the plunge yet into the Single world you need too.

Volume 1 was a perfect foundation for things to come. I was immediately curious and so captivated by the story that I read Volume 1 way to fast, which now leaves me waiting very impatiently for the next installment.

But it’s this anticipation that makes me love the serial genre so fucking much! I kill my self with the wait, conjuring all kinds of outcomes in my mind. Then the day comes where the next volume is out and I get reunited with the characters I've fallen in love with, able to finally see what the hell will happen next.

Lyra’s Single is witty, laced with laugh out loud moments and holy cheese and rice some 
hot hot 
HOT sex!

Internet dating has rules. Rules that need to be followed in order to be successful at it. Rules that help you stay focused. Focused on not falling and not committing. According to Rox anyway.

These are her rules…
1. Always use a fake name
2. Always use the same fake name
3. Never bring s man to your home
4. Always use protection
5. No cuddling


Meet Roxanne VanBuren, considered to be a serial Internet dater. She follows her rules and enjoys it for the most part. Since loosing her fianc√© years ago and working long hours she has basically sworn off love and commitment, needing only sex. Internet dating was her oyster, it’s fast and for the most part effective. Well… that is until she met up with him. The one who essentially ruins it all.

Omg! I loved this book instantly. The humour and wit just slapped me in the face within the first few pages! Roxanne/ Katie's retelling of her encounter with Alex was so fucking hot as I read I was like yes! Then suddenly I bust out into laughter. I knew from that point on that Lyra had me hooked into her literary creation!

After deciding to break form on-line sex matches Roxanne decided to put her trust in her bestie who helps her explore a few alternatives. After a crazy weekend of sexual explanation and a romp with a past lover she needs a change. Meeting a sexy bartender just might be that change.

Enter Parker.

Enter Hotness.

Enter HOLY fucking sexual tension.

Enter HOLY fucking window scene! *fanning my self


Gah…she fucking ends it!

I cannot wait for Volume 2!!!!!
