Jillian Whitkins is an event planner who is ready to throw in the towel. She is managing a birthday party with a 50 Shades of Grey theme—and it’s turning into a disaster! The birthday girl is drunk, the guests are harassing her staff, and she is about to offend a real-life Christian Grey.
When did he become so formal? “Are you a vampire?” Isn’t that what Minerva called him—an emotional vampire? “You can’t cross a threshold without an invitation?”
“What was it you said earlier? ‘If I open this door, we are really going to do this.’ I need you to decide. Either invite me in or say good-night. It’s your choice, Jillian.”
Part of me wishes he would just come in and kiss me senseless and then ravish me. That’s not his style tonight. Still, I need to know a little more. “If I invite you in, what will happen?”
He raises his eyebrows and laughs, almost like a villain in an old James Bond film. “You want me to sell you on the idea of inviting me in?”
His lips curl into a sensual smile as he crosses his arms and leans against the doorframe. The pose suits him—he looks like an ad for sex. “What I want to do is explore. I want to explore your body, I want to explore what turns you on, and I want to explore what makes your eyes roll back in your head. I want to know what makes you whimper, what makes you moan, and what makes you shout my name.”
“You’re very persuasive.”
“I must be. I’ve turned myself on.” He straightens and drops his arms. “Invite me in.”
Despite every nagging doubt and fear, I hold out my hand. “Won’t you come in, Jackson?”
4 out of 5 (very good)

Well to start with you have a widower Jillian who is a event planner but this will be her last fifty shades event as she is struggling with the business so she will be jobless at the end of the night.
After throwing the event for someone she actually meets a handsome stranger but it looks as if he is kidnapping a woman so she tries to stop him and takes a picture of him suspecting that the police will want to know who he is.
Jackson is a CEO and is very held up in the past he doesn't say sorry thank you or please he is very confident in himself and he is very much a alpha male the only problem is when he keeps all of his secrets close to his chest it makes him lose his cool. He gives Jillian lessons in being the perfect sub.
I will say that this book had me hooked and the way that the author has brought Jillian and Jackson together works really well but the one thing that did confuse me was the box set is all one book there is nothing to say when book 2 starts so it baffled me.
I will give this book 4/5 and hope that I get a chance to read book 3 and review it.

Robyn Kelly is my pen name. I work for one of the top boutique event planning companies in San Francisco, and I can't risk having our clientele (or my boss) discover my passion for aggressive, sexual, alpha men.
I write the kinds of stories I like to read. I realized the top four things I love in a romance are:
The chase. I don't care how hot or rich the hero is, he's got to work for it if he wants in to my heroine's panties—for at least four chapters!
Second chances. My heroines aren't virgins. They are women who have loved and lost before.
I'm not against virgins, some of my best friends in high school were virgins. I just think they should stick with bad boys, and leave the billionaires to us experienced women.
Humor. I love a book that can get me both hot and laughing.
Happy endings. They’re so much better than cliff-hangers.
