*THIS BOOK CAN BE READ AS A STANDALONE* All Jessica wants - as a college graduate - is to be a good girl. She landed the job of her dreams at a museum and is trying to eliminate temptations. No more short skirts (when she can help it). No wild parties. And no men. She particularly excels at that last thing. . . Until her path crosses Parker's. Again. Jessica remembers the last time their paths crossed very well. She was left with a seriously bruised ego. She knows it would be best to avoid him altogether. But the charming Brit makes it hard for her to elude his electrifying pull. He is as irresistible as he is captivating. And enigmatic. Because underneath the sleek Armani suit and the sweet British accent that makes her crave his touch, Parker isn't the perfect gentleman everyone thinks he is. He's exactly what Jessica doesn't want, but desperately needs. A bad, bad boy. *No cliffhanger * This novel is recommended for 17] due to sexual content and mature themes.* *This is book 2 in the series. Book 1, Lost in Us, tells the story of James and Serena.* Each book in the series can be read as a STANDALONE*

Oh man! I got started on this book at work and quickly found myself enveloped in it. Found in Us is actually the second in a series but it can be read as a standalone. I haven’t read the first one and I can assure you this book tells a complete tale.

Jessica is the original California party girl who does things on her own. She finally gets the dream job she wanted in a museum in London, now she just needs to shed her party girl past. Parker is an old friend who hurts Jessica’s ego by turning her down for sex, back in her party girl days. The story starts off with happy-go-lucky Jessica in London trying to make it on her own without a boyfriend to distract her. Insert Parker who is British and almost irresistible. They run into each other again and then the sparks fly almost instantly.

They say opposites attract and that is certainly true for those two. Jessica is fun and lives on the fly. Parker is serious and has everything under control. These two both have issues in their past, and that means baggage. They are more alike then they think. We don’t get to hear all about it right away, but these two have a long history. Parker sends out his mixed signals and gets Jessica all sorts of confused. She doesn’t want to want him, but she can’t help herself. Parker is not Jessica’s type. Parker is easy to fall for. He is handsome and mysterious, oh and very wealthy. Poor Jessica. Poor Parker too, since Jessica basically comes along and distracts him from his life. I doubted these two would ever get it together, but they did and the result is smouldering.

The sex scenes in this book are pretty hot. There is no bondage or pain, but I still thought they were very cheeky. There is a bit of exhibitionism in this that make it sexy. This was such an easy read for me. I was thinking it would take me a week to finish this but I stayed up for hours after work and couldn’t wait to tell you about it. Any romance lover could enjoy this book. There is enough sex in here to makes it quite an erotic read with a great story line.


“I can’t make up my mind,” Parker says.
“About what?”
“About what I want to do with you.”
I gulp. “Don’t I get a say in this?”
He snaps his head up, chuckling. “Not really.”
“That’s not frustrating at all, you know? What are you thinking right now?”
He tugs his lower lip with his teeth. “You really want to know?”
“Yeah, I really want to know.”
He shifts his weight on the edge of the seat, and when he leans forward this time, I don’t back off. “I’m thinking I would very much like to see you come,” he says into my ear. My mind doesn’t register the full impact of his words right away. But my body does. “Anything against that, Jessica?” he whispers, his hand trailing up and down my inner thigh.
“N-no,” I say in a low voice. So low that I hope he hasn’t heard me. But he has. There’s no other explanation as to why his hand has already found its way under my dress.
“Turn around and spread your legs,” he commands.
“Parker,” I mumble, “not here . . .”
“No one can see us, and Dani won’t come back soon. Turn around.”
Despite knowing I shouldn’t, I turn around. My body no longer seems to listen to any commands of mine. I lean my back against his chest, my head resting on his shoulder, my forehead touching the base of his neck. I look into the room, trying to gauge what those in the boxes opposite us can see. But I can barely see anything in the back row of the boxes directly in front of us. There’s no reason to believe anyone could see us from there. Anyone looking from above won’t have a clear view of the back row either.
“Spread your legs,” he repeats, his tone more authoritative than before. It sends another wave of heat through me. Burying myself in his neck, I open up for him. He doesn’t touch me right away. He takes his time, trailing his fingers on the inside of my thigh, inciting a deep hunger in my core that grows with each inch of my skin he touches until I drop any pretense of shame and beg him, “Parker . . .”
When his fingers touch my intimate spot over my panties, I stiffen against him.
“You’re soaked,” he says, and I take immense pleasure in the slight tremble in his voice. Then his fingers start rubbing me slowly, and I dig my own fingers in the cushion of the chair as a spasm wracks through me.
This man will make me come.
Here, surrounded by people and plush velvet-covered seats.
