Falling For Sharde (Taking Chances, #1) Reviews
Falling for Sharde, Marilyn Lee, Self Published, December 2010After nine years spent in love with her boss, Jefferson Calder, Sharde Donovan is tired of being treated like one of the boys. During a long weekend at a remote cabin, she seduces him.Upon their return to the city, Sharde is dismayed by Jefferson’s assertion that he wants nothing more than friendship with benefits. In an effort to make him admit he wants more, she does the unthinkable—starts to date his chief business rival.Clayton Frazier, the handsome owner of Fra-tech has never made any secret of his interest in Sharde. After outbidding Jefferson to secure a lucrative government contract, he now has his sights set on Sharde—just as circumstances forces Jefferson to realize how much she means to him.Sharde has been working for and with Jefferson for nine years, and in that time she has watched him give his heart to two women who both cheated on him. Neither woman loved him the way that she does but he just didn't seem to see her as anything more than a buddy. Well that is about to change. She goes away for the weekend with him to his cabin with seduction on her mind. Her plan is successful and upon their return she is sure that things will become more serious.Unfortunately Jefferson just wants to be friends with benefits and keep things casual. During a conversation both say some things that they wish they could take back and Jefferson leaves Sharde only to end up picking up a woman in a bar and taking her home. When Sharde calls to tell Jefferson that she understands his reluctance to rush into another serious relationship the woman answers. Hurt that he could leave her and go straight to bed with another woman Sharde turns in her resignation. When Jefferson finds the resignation he tries to explain that while he did pick that woman up he did not sleep with her, too hurt to forgive Sharde tells him to go and leaves her job. It's not until Sharde is gone that Jefferson realizes exactly how he feels about her, but now it might just be to late because there is another man that wants her.This book was a classic example of how women usually attach more emotion to sex then men. Now I know not all women do...there are some Samantha's out there but for the most part we do. This was a very well written story and I found myself very much invested in the characters and what happen with not just them but the secondary character's as well. I swear if Darbi doesn't get a book I am going to cry!!! I give this book 5 chocolate dipped strawberries, and a LARGE glass of ice water on the side because this book is scorching!
I just started reading this book.. im literally on page 2.. so bare with me.. but the first few lines.. what an attention Grabber!Wow... i loved this book man... and im all ready and deared up to read "Nice Girls Do".. the sequel to this book.. All i have to say is Clay Clay Clay.. One thing about this author.. she writes in a way that you fall in love with the characters or you have a passion against them.. .. you feel like you know them.. Its not just a story.. its someones story.. and its always great!------------------------------------------------------------This book was a good read however.. i didnt like one of the characters... Don't get me wrong.. I looovveeddd the story and i was addicted from page 1 to the end.I wasn't feeling one person in particular. But i won't say who. You have to see how you feel about each character for yourselfYou are probably wondering why I didnt like a character. Well the character for the story was fine. It was just the way they acted that upset me. I cant say what without giving away who and the story. *smiles*But there is one that i loved and one that i didnt care fo so much. But the thing is.. you needed the characters to be who they were and the way they were in order for the story to unfold the way it did.This book was hot from start to finish... and i mean hot. This story was so real, it felt like this really happened. Sometimes I wonder... did it? *giggles*I think if that character was any different the story would be too. And i like the story the way it is.So .. I love the book and the cover so Kudos to Marilyn Lee for another Job well down.This book was so believable she had me falling for a character in the book.. Bet you cant guess who!!Find this book on amazon.com in printGood PriceGood ReadGo get yours..
I loved this book, it was an excellent read. Marilyn Lee is one of my favorite authors and I have yet to read anything bad from her. Love her stories but this one is one of my favorites!Well worth the read.
Even with Jefferson the bonehead, I really enjoyed this book.
Really liked it
This is the second book by this author I've read. I'm glad I've discovered her works.This is a story of a woman in love with her boss. Sarde-the h, makes a play to seduce her boss and succeeds. He's coming out of two bad relationships and wants nothing but a sexual relationship. Queue the drama of two star crossed lovers who instead of talking waste a lot of time on misunderstanding.I enjoyed this book save for I'm not a fan of women chasing men, which I felt Sarde did too much of. As an aside, in both books I've read from this author anal sex features quite a lot. I'm not a prude but it just seems weird in a romance novel - though on reflection I guess this is more erotic romance.
Nul, vulgaire, creux, bête, ennuyeux.
it was ok, alot of ups and downs.
