It's her choice to play his game. If she says yes, there will be more on the line than just her pleasure.

Zoey Parker has a three-step plan for revenge. First, gain entrance to the ultra-exclusive, upscale sex club, Phoenix. Second, act out her wildest fantasy in front of powerful old rivals, proving that they didn't break her. Third, disappear and never return. The only kink in her plan? Rhys Harrington, the owner of Phoenix and the one man she needs to stay away from...

Rhys' high-end clients pay extravagant amounts to watch his stars indulge their desires. Rhys' only rule? Watch, don't touch. But one look at Zoey and Rhys decides to participate in the show himself. And when an undeniable passion ignites between them, Rhys knows he wants more. Except Zoey is determined to run... and he is determined to find out why.

When Rhys discovers Zoey's secret, he shocks her by offering his protection... and a no-strings-attached relationship. But Zoey knows there will be more on the line than just her pleasure. Because Rhys' sizzling touch doesn't only capture her body, it also commands her heart.


Steamy and delightful! With the first book in her brand new Phoenix series Stacey Kennedy brings on the heat with an emotional story line when a plot for revenge turns into more than was bargained for. I loved this story and look forward to more to come in the series!

Zoey Parker takes matters into her own hands in a vary unorthodox way in order to seek revenge on a wrong done to her that changed her life forever. Her secrets come back to bite her when her subterfuge is uncovered and a powerful man is unhappy that he was used … until he learns her story and then it’s game over.

Rhys Harrington is a powerful and accomplished man, but he doesn’t like secrets. When he learns what propelled Zoey to hide her true intentions, he sets out to help her find comfort in the life and passion she has to give, even if it’s only short term.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys an emotional read with dark currents below the surface and lots of passionate give and take. Looking forward to the next in the series!

Can the leading man win his costume designer’s heart—or will
their happily ever after crash and burn
like something straight out of a Hollywood tragedy?

Chase Wright
Hollywood’s golden boy.
Way hotter than he has any right to be.
And more cocky than all movie stars-combined.

He was just the impatient ass she was supposed to sew into the superhero costume. Getting to know him was never part of her plan. Starting to like him wasn’t, either. Giving him way too much of herself? Potential disaster. Especially when his next role crashes against her deep-seated vulnerabilities.

Melody Hunte
Daughter of rock royalty.
Assistant costume designer extraordinaire.
Possibly the woman of his dreams … before he ruined everything.

All he wanted was to be taken seriously as an actor—to be seen as more than a pretty-boy “movie star.” The audition was forgotten before it even ended. It didn’t mean anything. But as it turns out, Melody does mean something. She’s everything. She’s golden. Now all he has to do is fix the giant mess he made before he loses her for good.


Love when she least expected it! With book 3 in her much loved The Hunte Family series Arell Rivers delights her readers with Melody’s story. She’s Braxton’s daughter and we’ve always known she would be special and getting to know her and her love of creation is so much fun. I really enjoy this family.

Melody is a strong and independent character. She doesn’t want to use her father’s stardom to get a leg up in anything, so she’s happy to turn her back on things she doesn’t earn all on her own. Meeting Chase and discovering he’s more than just the boy next door turned super star is life changing.

Chase is fun to get to know. He’s lived his jetsetting lifestyle perfectly happily for awhile but when Melody comes onto his radar and makes him enjoy slowing down and appreciating the little things again it’s awe inspiring.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who loves the background of a famous family and seeing each offspring go forth and find their forever love.
