Blog tour, giveaway & 5* review - Do Not Disturb by Stephanie Julian

Do Not Disturb Synopsis:

A seductive affair is twisted by secrets in the latest Salon Games novel from the author of Over Exposed. 

To the outside world, Dane Connelly is the playboy heir of a media mogul, his life a series of one-night stands with no commitments. Only in the Salon does he satisfy his darker urges with willing partners. Life was perfect…until his best friend fell in love. Now Dane knows exactly what he’s been missing—and exactly who he wants. 

Talia Driscoll enjoys creating perfection. She loves bright, glittery parties and fairy tale weddings. But she knows the illusion is short-lived. Nothing lasts forever and everyone lies to get what they want. After all, she lies about her true identity every day. After an explosive night at the Salon, Dane is determined to sway the reluctant Talia to be his completely. But the secrets that keep them apart are at odds with the erotic passion that draws them together…

OMG! Why have I not heard of this author or this series before?! Do Not Disturb is a captivating story with great characters and a wonderful setting.  Stephanie Julian has created a wonderful world full of fascinating characters, hunky men and deliciously kinky sex.  The sensual paradise known as The Salon is the perfect background for the fun, sexy stories that also have intriguing plot lines and plenty of raw emotion.  The author drew me into this world, and I really felt like I knew these characters.  I had no problem reading this book without reading the previous books, it works fine as a standalone, but I enjoyed this one so much that I may go back and read the others.

Dane has been the third person in his best friend Jared's relationship with Annabelle for a while now, but he's beginning to want more. And when he meets Jared and Annabelle's wedding planner, Talia, he knows who he wants 'more' with - but convincing Talia to commit to more than a one night stand won't be easy.  Talia has a troubled past and has some big secrets which stop her from getting involved with anyone, as in her eyes love only leads to pain.  

The passion and chemistry between these two is undeniable, I'm surprised my kindle didn't burst into flames! I enjoyed the scenes in the Salon, they were hot, hot, hot with a nice kinky edge.  I found this book to be very emotional too, especially regarding Talia's past which is catching up with her.  I really felt Talia's pain and wanted her to confide in Dane, and I also felt for Dane and understood his frustration when Talia continued to shut him out.  Dane was a real sweetheart - strong and dominant with a fun, caring side.  I really enjoyed this book and loved everything about it, it is a real gem - five stars! 

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.
