... it's book #2's couple Cole & Lori's Happily Ever After Adventure!

4.25 Stars

A Dirty Rich novel continuing where Dirty Rich Cinderella Story left off...

Get ready for a steamy honeymoon, and a heart-stopping welcome home for Cole and Lori!

The unexpected is about to happen and while Lori has faced the demons of her past, she and Cole will face those of his past now.

Lori and Cole.
We already read how they met and insta-fell for each other in the first book.
And now they're on their honeymoon in Paris.
Everything could be all happily ever after, but once we're back in New York the trouble is already waiting. Big trouble!
There've been threats against them - especially against Lori - from people connected to the victims of the 'serial killer' Lori defended. He is innocent, but those poor families need to blame someone. Now we just have to stay alive while finding the real killer! And we might have a few tiny little other 'problems' too!
Fun times!

Well, that was very adorable and verrry sexy and very exciting!
Due to my Bookalzheimer I couldn't remember what happened in their first book - but after reading my old review I was remembering enough to get started with this one!
I expected a cute little honeymoon novella - but I didn't get that at all!
Yes, we are honeymoonish in Paris for a little while in the beginning. BUT back home it's one thing after another. Mega exciting, dangerous, scary ... all the things are happening ... and I really adored reading this non-novella!

It's not just the bad guys they have to fight. Cole is so horribly scared of losing Lori! He was all alone until he met her - it's so heartbreaking...that poor guy.

This was a great 2nd book for a great couple - I wish more authors would do that! It's always sad to say good-bye to characters once a book ends. This way we'll get them again for a little while!
And we get to see some other people too - plus we'll also get a second book for 2 other couples soon! Yay!

If I had to complain about something - and I can't believe I'm going to say this ... there was a little bit too much sex-having going on. Instead of talking about his feelings Cole always just got Lori naked! LOL. It was a bit much and some of those scenes were just too long.

But I still loved reading their ever after story! ♥

DIRTY RICH CINDERELLA STORY: EVER AFTER was a very sexy & exciting happily-ever-after-erotic-lawyer-suspense story! I loved it!
Run to your nearest amazon for your own Cole - this one is MINE!!!

ARC received for an honest review

Welcome back to Lisa's world of corporate high flyers, dirty deals and even dirtier men!

I had to go back and read what Cole and Lori's first book was about, as I have terrible bookzheimer's and forgot what the deal was with them - but after a quick read through of my review I remembered!

I was expecting more of a honeymoon novella for this one, and whilst we did get that, this story was much more.

It was more drama and suspense and bad guys than I was expecting. That's not a bad thing at all, just took me by surprise a little.

I did find myself struggling a bit to get involved in this story, and I am not sure what is going on there as I always fall into a LRJ story. I also felt that this story was very slow, and too much naked time (say what?!?) - however this could just be me.

I did love getting more of Lori and Cole's story, and am looking forward to the second books for the other peeps in this series.


“You have me now. I’m not going anywhere. I promise.”
“You can’t promise that.”
“I can,” he says, his voice deep, rich, his tone absolute. “I will.”
“People die.”
“Yes, but if I die, you’ll know how much I loved you. You’ll know I’m still with you.” He cups my face. “But you don’t get to get rid of me that easily. Whatever waits for us here, there, or anywhere, we’ll get through it together. That’s what husbands and wives do.”
Warmth and calm wash over me. “Husband,” I whisper.
“Wife,” he replies, his gaze raking over my lips, and lifting. “About that zipper.”
“Take me to our hotel and I’ll show you how it works.”
“I can’t wait that long,” he counters, reaching for said zipper.
I catch his hand. “Cole,” I warn urgently. “You have to wait.”
I’ve barely finished that reprimand before his mouth is crashing down on mine and he’s kissing me, his tongue stroking my tongue. One of his hands settles at the base of my spine, molding me close, all those hard, sinewy parts of him pressed to all the soft parts of me and I moan. Another second later, and my zipper is open, and he’s pressed my hands over my head, his fingers dragging over the thin lace of my barely-there bra, teasing my nipples.
“We can’t do this here,” I whisper, and I mean it, despite the moan that rolls from my throat, as his fingers slide between my legs, heat pooling low in my belly and spreading to the touch of his fingers.
“And yet we are,” he says.
Voices sound just outside the door, and I panic. “Cole,” I hiss.
He reacts, and in an instant, his arm is around my waist and he’s pulling me into a long, narrow stall, shutting the heavy door and locking it. Women, two I think, enter the bathroom, and Cole steps back in front of me, his cheek pressing to mine as he whispers. “I’m going to make you come with them standing right there.”
My fingers curl on his chest. “No,” I silently whisper, but he swallows the protest with a deep lick of his tongue, and just like that, he’s grabbed my panties and yanked them away.
And then he’s kneeling on one knee, his lips pressing to my belly, and the effect is an adrenaline rush up and down my body. My fingers tangle in his hair and I tell myself it’s to pull him away, but his tongue flicks my belly button and I bite my lip to silence my pleasure. I know where that tongue is headed and it’s almost too much.
