This is my world, my kingdom. I sit on the throne and control the empire I created.

My skill? Providing illicit pleasure to thousands. If there is a fantasy to fulfil, my company will provide it.

I am the Porn Prince.

The cold hearted producer at Stone Industries who creates the hottest porn in the business.
But every ruler has an Achilles heel, and mine is chaos.

Abigail Warner is chaos.

From the moment she entered my office my world was turned upside down. She is my passion, my fantasy and everything I never wanted in life. The chaotic infuriating mess of a woman is everything I hate and avoid.

So why can’t I stop watching her.

Why do I crave her?

One taste and I know she will destroy me.

Sometimes it'll be a cover that will initially capture my attention. Other times, it can be the synopsis or an excerpt. When I first heard about Watch Me, it was two little words that sucked me in. What were those two words? Porn. Industry. It wasn't the cover, although I had seen it in passing. I admit that I hadn't read the synopsis at this point. Nope, it was those 2 words that a friend of mine said to me in an email one night. Those 2 words made me expedite it up my reading list. Then, of course, it was everything else about the book that made me rearrange my TBR a bit so I could squeeze it in. Can you blame me? Anyone who has read Watch Me probably wouldn't mind being squeezed between Lawson and Sam. Am I right?

Since Watch Me was my first Ada Frost book, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. Is it going to be dark? Light? A little of both? With the sex/porn industry, would it be over the top? To be honest, it was all of the above. The sex was hot, as to be expected. I'm not often surprised by an erotic romance, but there was one scene that I had to do a double take. Did that just happen? Okay, it did and damn... It was hot. As with any porn star romance, there is some darkness to it surrounding Lawson's background. He had a crappy childhood and a sleazeball father. The lightness comes from Abby. She's the light at the end of Lawson's tunnel. She's strong enough to stand on her own 2 feet when it would be so much easier to crumble. Nope, not our girl. She'll do it on her own or not at all. And there was Samuel. Not only does he successfully push Lawson's buttons, but he does so out of love, along with some other more selfish reasons. Like just for the sheer fun of watching his best friend fall for the spunky woman. He knows what his friend needs and he'll push until Lawson gets his head out of his ass. All three of them explore each other and the new emotions that rise to the surface.

I was ecstatic that I could sneak Watch Me in before it slipped my mind. I loved this little erotic romance. Not being able to put it down, I found myself stealing a couple minutes here and there throughout the day so I could finish it as fast as possible. It was an equal measure of fun sexy times and just plain fun. It was everything that I had hoped it would be and more. Now I'm stuck wanting to pick up more of the author's books and hoping that we'll someday get Sam's story. It felt like there might be something between him and another character. I'm not going to say who, but see if you spot the same tension I did when her name is brought up. Until then, Ada will for sure be on my list of authors to watch.

So a little bit about myself. I love to read, and create stories for others to enjoy. I've always been told I have a vivid imagination, I just lacked the confidence to pursue putting it onto the written page. But finally I embarked on making a single dream come true.

I love to read, and write. I only read romance, any in that genre really. But it has to have a beautiful happy ending, I know reality isn't like that, but I read to excape real life not re-live it. Reality is too broken and jaded without having to live through the trauma and angst in a book for it to end unhappily.

I live in Yorkshire, England with my family, and many pets. When I'm not writing I am a very busy mummy and wife. My family is my world, my purpose and I am proud to be a part of their lives.
