Liliana Batchelor Series #1
Holly Blackstone
Released March 2013
Erotic Romance

Two souls meet at a dark railroad crossing… there's no hint this night will be the beginning - and end - of everything.

Lily doesn't exist any more - old Lily, anyway. That night made her different, rewrote her life, tore up everything she thought she knew and understood.

How do you go back to normal after you've met someone who has turned your life upside down? When you fear the passionate connexion but don't want to live for anything else? When those few moments were the most intense and intimate of your life and it was the barest taste of what you could have together?

How do you find the strength to not run away from something that has the power to shatter your heart?

Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language and situations that some readers may find objectionable (including spanking and bondage). Content intended for adults only.

What readers are saying:

"It took forever to find a book last night on my Kindle. To find that perfect Alpha male character. Stuart is the one."

"Really enjoying the strong alpha possessive male qualities of Stuart, Liliana is no simpering girl, their connection and the way the author visualizes that to the reader are really impressive. Did I mention it is smokin' hot?! Really pleasantly surprised with this one, reminds me at times of In Flight series among others."

Where to begin ? maybe with „wow“ …this was not what i expected … that would fit best I think.

I tried to remember how I found the books – I think it was because of the authors post in one of the groups I joined on goodreads
I read the blurb and thought – ok – that sounds interesting …
Then I bought the  3 !!! books that were available at that time on Amazon on Friday – and by Sunday night I was done … and left (like a fish without water) craving for more

Reading many of the now available “similar” story’s (just check my goodreads profile) – you easily find a pattern which they all seem to follow – but this teaser sounded different and got me interested.
At first I had a little difficulty with the writing style – most of the other books in those area are written form either HER or HIS point of view only – and this story seems to jump… pointing out his and her thinking and a kind of neutral point of view … so the first chapters took some time to get used to.

I do not want to make to many spoilers so I try to state my opinion without giving to much away.
To make a long story short …These books are really good ! They may contain many of the known elements of other storys -

the strong dominating male/ceo
the submissive female
the fact that at least one of them has binding issures
the running away / breakup thing
the strange/crazy boss/ ex-boyfriend/ex-girlfriend/ex-wife factors

But it became different in the moment when the relationship between Stuart and Lily hit the bottom of what Stuart actually wants and what he is willing to do to get it.

At the beginning I thought this is too much how could he actually expect that from her ??

But reading further and further – the story made it really believable . I could relate to what he was thinking and how Lily was feeling about it. And believe me if you would just state here now the plain cold facts of what Stuart wants you would consider it/him crazy and the whole story totally nuts ….

But the miracle itself is how Holly Blackstone made it possible that you actually move on with the persons and start to relate to their thinking and somehow it suddenly makes sense (at least to me)

And just in case – that the author might read this - I have to put a maybe minor spoiler here but I try to keep it as general as possible giving away as little as possible:

Dear Ms. Blackstone – I already loved your detailed description of the “things going on in the basement” in the 2nd book – especially as you write with such passion not only the description of the surrounding but also Stuart’s and Lily’s feeling about it – they are by far the best I have read up to now – BUT you really got me in the 3rd book when “Stuart is giving his second “PAYMENT” to Lina” ….”Lily’s “PART” in that payment” nearly killed me during reading!

Not to mention … your description of THE piercing nearly made me faint thinking about it

PLEASE hurry up … I need to read more … but please don’t make it to many remaing parts

(This review was written shortly after the 3rd book was released - in the meantime the series of books is completed)
