VANILLA TWIST (Walk on the Wild Side #3) by CJ Ellisson

ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date February 9, 2014

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.


REVIEW: VANILLA TWIST is the third instalment in CJ Ellisson’s A Walk on the Wild Side contemporary, adult, erotic romance series. This is Heather Pierce and Tony Carmine’s second storyline. We were first introduced to our couple in the first book-Vanilla on Top-a story where Heather stepped out of her comfort zone to find the man who was her perfect match-both inside and outside of the bedroom.

Vanilla Twist furthers Heather and Tony’s relationship but a relationship that is threatened by Tony’s past and Heather’s ex. Tony’s history of womanizing and short-lived relationships plays a role in his friendships with family and pals but it is one recent relationship in particular that may push away the woman that he loves. As Heather’s photography business begins to flourish her corporate life will force her to make a decision about both her future and her past.

CJ Ellisson writes a storyline where two people must face the possibility of a different future then the one they had originally intended. The sex is sensual, arousing and inventive; but it is the maturity with which both Tony and Heather handle a potentially difficult situation that brings our couple together for a HEA.

Andy Shea refuses to become another lover the feisty blonde dumps. It’ll take a patient man with a strong hand to unlock Carla’s sexual awareness and win her heart. He’s up for the challenge to convince her he’s the one—and eager to prove this number cruncher won’t make a boring bedmate.
