I’m happy to be taking part in the Vanilla Twist blog tour. 😉 You can check out my review and make sure you check out all the other stops. There’s a lot going on to celebrate. Including a RAFFLECOPTER drawing, so be sure to click on the link to enter!
Heather thinks she has it all—an interesting lover, a dream job, and a new wardrobe to match her take-charge attitude. But everyone has a past, and when Heather confronts hers at work she’ll be hard-pressed to hold onto her newfound confidence and resolve. Does she trust Tony enough to let him help her or will she tackle the issue on her own?
Still intrigued by the young woman and the multiple layers she presents to the world, Tony begins to change his life, too—for what he hopes is the better. He quit his high-powered career to find peace in a less stressful day-to-day existence. Desire for Heather still invades his every waking moment, and when trouble threatens their sexual explorations he makes the hardest choice of his life. One he may soon regret.
This is the third installment in C.J. Ellisson’s Walk on the Wild Side series. I inadvertently skipped the second book, Avoiding Mr. Right, but that’s okay. I can go back and play catch up because Vanilla Twist goes back to Heather and Tony, so I felt like I wasn’t missing a thing – at least where they were concerned.
Vanilla Twist once again proves that C.J. Ellisson can keep me turning pages whether she’s writing PNR or contemporary. Her characters are interesting and fun, the situations and story line keep me intrigued and the heat is just right. 😉
Heather and Tony’s relationship was just getting off the ground by the end of Vanilla on Top and it was nice to see that it was still going strong. They were still in the ‘getting to know’ you phase, but they definitely had a connection that neither one of them had experienced before. It was fresh, exciting and fun…. and then the real world came crashing in.
I’ll leave it at that, because I don’t want to spoil anything. A lot happens in Vanilla Twist that helps readers get to know the characters a lot better, and not just Tony and Heather. The story wasn’t just about the situation that Tony and Heather found themselves in, it was more about the way that they eventually handled it. The supporting characters were more than just filler. The conversations and interactions between them all gave readers a better understanding of where they were all coming from. (I especially liked getting to know Tony’s brothers.)
Vanilla Twist was a great addition to the Walk on the Wild Side series and I can’t wait to see what C.J. Ellisson has in store for these characters next. I’m pretty sure that there is more to Heather and Tony’s story, but I wouldn’t mind getting to know some of the other characters better to.
