5 Stars

For fans of Fifty Shades of Grey and Bared to You comes a tempting new novel of secrets, lies, and redeeming passion.

Two million dollars secured Noah Crawford the most enticing woman he has ever known. Initiating Delaine Talbot into a sensuous world of pleasure took them both to the brink—again and again. But when Noah discovers why the beautiful innocent sold her body to the highest bidder, he’s faced with the hardest thing he ever had to do: Set her free. 

Lanie can’t believe Noah would let her go. Doesn’t he know they share a bond deeper than sex—a connection too powerful to sever? Not even a treacherous enemy out to destroy Noah or the dark secret haunting the multibillionaire can keep them apart. But first Lanie has to show him that he belongs to her, even if it means risking everything for a love that can never be bought or sold.

A Million Guilty Pleasures is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

••• Before you start to read this book you should read the first one - One Million Dirty Secrets - because book #2 starts off right where book #1 ends. •••

Noah just told Lanie to leave - that her mother needs her and that this thing between them would never work anyway. He didn't mean it of course, he just felt guilty for how he treated her. (after he bought her ☺)

  ...but then I did the unthinkable. I fell in love with her.

Fortunately Delaine doesn't believe him and she wants to confront him in his office - but just as she's about to leave, her best friend Dez shows up and tells her that her mother is back in the hospital, and that it doesn't look good.

Her mother needs a new heart as soon as possible. The surpising news, when Lanie arrives at the hospital is, that they already have a donor and her mom is already being prepped for surgery.

Noah shows up at the hospital and overhears Lanie talking to her sleeping mother. Very sweet and moving moment. ☺ They talk etc... and everything is perfect!

Well, almost.

This could be the happy ever after we were waiting for - but we're only at the very beginning of the book.

There will be lots of obstacles in the way of the new couples' happiness.

One being Noah's former best friend David.
He wants to hurt and ridicule Noah - he already took away Noah's ex girlfriend and now he wants to take away his company and Lanie too!!!


 I'm not telling you, of course ☺
I don't want to spoil your reading pleasure ☺



 The first book ended so grrrrrr - I wanted to read book #2 as soon as possible.
I was really looking forward to it.
And it didn't disappoint.
After the first 6% I was even thinking that it was WAY better than the first book - but then we got to read a few pages from David's POV - and I hated that. Well, hate is not really the right word. It needed to be in the book, because we needed to know what David was thinking and planning and what a complete ass he is. BUT - I don't like it when we read the villains POV in Romance books. In Thrillers it's ok, but in romances I only want to read what my 2 heroes think and do!
But it only happens twice - a few pages in David's POV - so that's totally ok ☺

I loved it that Noah and Lanie got back together in the beginning of the book - there weren't any supid and stubborn idiotic phases to go through!

I loved all the co-stars like Noah's assistent Polly and his cousin Lexie and even Lanie's Dad and yeah I even kind of liked David - the idiot villain of the book. (Not like-like - more like-hate - he's a perfectly hatable bad guy!)

And grrrrr all those sex scenes again!!! *WavesKindleToGetSomeAir*

Some people might say there are too many of those erotic moments in the book - but pffff - it's an erotic Romance - what did you expect!?!? I loved it!

Noah is just soooo cute and sexy and adorably in love with Lanie ♥

I really enjoyed the book!!!!





C. L. Parker is a romance author who writes stories that sizzle. She’s a small-town girl with big-city dreams and enough tenacity to see them come to fruition. Having been the outgoing sort for all her life—which translates to “she just wouldn’t shut the hell up”—it’s no wonder Parker eventually turned to writing as a way to let her voice, and those of the people living inside her head, be heard. She loves hard, laughs until it hurts, and lives like there’s no tomorrow. In her world, everything truly does happen for a reason.
