Review For: 'By The Hour' bt Roni Loren
By the Hour: A Pleasure Principle Novel (The Pleasure Principle Series) (Volume 2) - Roni Loren

3.5 Stars
'By The Hour' bt Roni Loren is book Two in the "Pleasure Principle" series. This is the story of Dr. Elle McCray and Lane Cannon. I have not yet read the previous book so for me this was a standalone book.
Elle is now a divorced women trying to get over the hurt of being betrayed by her husband and someone else who she was close too. Elle has found herself to be a uptight snobbish person with a chip on her shoulder. Lane is completely different from Elle in that he isn't taking live so serious. Lane used to be a paid escort and now is working as a Sex Therapist and going to college. He is also younger than Elle by a few years. Elle used to look down on Lane but they slowly got to know one another and agreed to be sex buddies. But that lead to their feelings growing into more than they had planned.
This was a great book for second chances at finding love!
"My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

Loving You Easy (Loving on the Edge #9) by Roni Loren
Loving You Easy (A Loving on the Edge Novel) - Roni Loren

IT specialist Cora Benning has figured out the key to her formerly disastrous love life—make it virtual. In the online world of Hayven, she’s free of her geek girl image and can indulge her most private fantasies with a sexy, mysterious master without anyone in her life discovering her secrets. Until her information is hacked and she finds herself working to fix the breach under two very powerful men—one who seems all too familiar...
Best friends and business partners Ren Muroya and Hayes Fox were once revered dominants. Then Hayes was wrongfully sent to prison and everything changed. Ren wants to get back to who they were. Hayes can’t risk it. But when they discover the new IT specialist is their online fascination, and that she’s never felt a dominant’s touch, the temptation to turn virtual into reality becomes all too great.









I have spent the last several days trying to come up with a way of describing this book. Its kept me from being able to write a decent review and honestly I'm still not totally sure where I land with it. I mean I didn't really care about the whodunnit aspect of the story because this was such a character driven story.

Warning this is a trio 3-way m/m/f relationship romance so if you aren't into that kind of thing this may not be the book for you. There is a lot of heavy angsty broken hero story brought in for the m/m romance end of the story and the complication of adding Cora in to the whole relationship which is further complicated because she's into the BDSM fetish which really doesn't have much grounds in this book despite the fact both R and H were world renown Doms (having controlling over masculine / dominant men with some play in bed does not equal real BDSM) that being said the sex is still hot so add some extra kinkiness and you got a good chaser to go with your shot of bourbon.

Cora wants a man who can take charge and gets two for the price of one.

There is a lot of that trying to take on reality verses fantasy which Cora has spent a lot of her time doing and gets caught up in when she begins her relationship with Ren and Hayes.

There is a lot I felt was a little bit off and others I didn't think got enough development but I personally had to set aside most of the extra scenes and focus solely on the sex instead simply because that's mostly the basis for this relationship when it boils down to the end.

Wanderlust by Roni Loren
Wanderlust - Roni Loren

Restaurant critic Aubrey Bordelon is never at a loss for words to describe her meals in the fancy restaurants of New Orleans. But after her magazine’s high-profile music reporter falls ill, she finds herself out of her element and in a sea of screaming fans awaiting Wanderlust’s lead singer, Lex Logan. The sound of his voice gives her goosebumps, and the stage presence of the hard-bodied rock star takes her breath away. So when he pulls her onstage for a sexy stunt, she knows she’s in real trouble.
Lex doesn’t want to pretend that the sparks on stage between him and Aubrey never happened, but it certainly makes the fact that she’s writing a story on his band all the more dangerous. The last thing he needs is some nosy reporter revealing their problems to the world. But the sexy Southern belle doesn’t give up easily, and soon he’s wondering if the best way to chase her off the story is to coax her into his bed…











My Review:

I wasn't sure whether to rate this book two or three stars but I had a hard time understanding and relating to the characters and the reasons for why they acted the way they did. Wanderlust has a lot of potential but I couldn't personally get into it.









My Rating:

Roni Loren is the Master!
Off the Clock: A Pleasure Principle novel - Roni Loren

Holy hotness! Off the Clock was off the charts steamy and sexy. Seriously...this book should come with a label warning readers that it may go up in flames in their hands!

'Marin was here trying to help other people with their sex lives and hers was nonexistent. Maybe she should be the one in therapy.'

So in Off the Clock (Pleasure Principle #1) by Roni Loren, Doctor Marin Rush has a new job that looks to make her all kinds of uncomfortable. Instead of being a researcher--which is her comfort zone--she's now going to be a therapist at a high-end institute called The Grove. Her chosen field of study, you ask? Sex. Yep. The woman who hasn't had sex in so long it's laughable is now going to be a sex therapist.

'She'd been on the shelf for so goddamned long. And now this gorgeous, intelligent man was saying he wanted to sleep with her and she couldn't act on it. She had to be responsible. Practical. Do the right thing.
She was so fucking tired of doing the right thing.'

Marin knows she's probably setting herself up for disaster but she would do anything to help her younger brother Nate go to the art school of his choice. And this good-paying job will insure that future. One thing she didn't plan on was coming face-to-face with the man who takes residence in her fantasies: Dr. Donovan West. And not only will she have to see him on a daily basis, but he's been deemed her mentor. Their steamy past threatens to take over Marin's training, forcing her and Donovan to find a way to balance their unrelenting chemistry and their professional ambitions.

He released her hands and stepped back but kept her pinned beneath that white-hot gaze. "So if you ever need me...off the clock, you just have to ask. And if you want me to go to hell and steer clear, that's all you've got to say, too. It's your call."

Roni Loren does such a fantastic job with this story. Equal parts Contemporary Romance and Erotica, it was clear from the very beginning that the attraction between our hero and heroine was going to be nothing short of amazing. And, oh boy, was it ever. I adored both Marin and Donovan. They were highly intelligent and tenacious. I think what I loved most about them is that they were survivors. They had gone through horrible tragedies in their past and fought to come out the other side. That strength and spirit that Donovan and Marin each had inside them, I think, is what drew them together. Well, aside from their serious case of insta-lust, of course.

Now this book deals with some issues that may be a trigger for some readers, such as depression, sexual issues, murder, suicide. And while there are some pretty dark scenes to get through, it doesn't overshadow the romance and friendships that happened here. This was a great introduction into what we might expect for storylines in the future as there were several supporting characters that made a great impression, as well as the many different types of therapy The Grove offers.

I should also mention that, this being an erotic story, there is a bit of BDSM as well. It is not the focus of Donovan and Marin's relationship but it is there in the background. That being said, the love scenes were incredibly hot and so very well done. Obviously Roni Loren is a master at her craft. But Off the Clock stepped it up even more in my eyes. If this is only the beginning of the series, I can't imagine what deliciously naughty things are in store for us next!

Review: Off the Clock by Roni Loren
Off the Clock: A Pleasure Principle novel - Roni Loren



It’s rare to read a book that is incredibly smart, supremely sexy, and wonderfully human, but Off the Clock is all those things and more. Roni Loren’s first Pleasure Principle novel is a complex, interesting, emotional, decadently erotic romance that will both satisfy you and leave you begging for more.

It’s pure chance that Marin Rush meets Donovan West late one night in the psychology building her freshman year of college. What follows is the most stimulating – intellectually and otherwise – week of her life. I love that Ms. Loren shows how Donovan and Marin meet. Getting to know their younger, sweeter selves is crucial to their story. Already when we meet Marin she has been shouldering far more responsibility than an eighteen year old should have. With everything she’s been through in her home life, it’s a miracle that she isn’t hardened, but is rather a bright, eager, utterly charming young woman. As for Donovan, he too has known pain, and bears psychological scars because of it. It’s easy to see why Marin is drawn to him; even as a young man Donovan is compelling. He’s sensual, slightly nerdy, and is genuinely open and excited about his studies. Their attraction to one another is undeniable, and it’s easy to be swept up in their late-night meetings. Then Marin’s world comes crashing down around her, ending her time with Donovan before they can truly begin something.

Though Donovan and Marin’s first week together sets the stage, the vast majority ofOff the Clock takes place nine years later. Marin has just taken a job as a sex therapist at The Grove, an exclusive, experimental therapy institute. Marin has never wanted to do clinical work, but she needs the job and the money to help her brother with his college tuition. What she doesn’t expect to learn is that her new mentor is none other than her college one-night stand. When Marin and Donovan meet again, their attraction reignites in an instant. But they aren’t the people they once were, and their lives and jobs make things even more complicated now. Though they initially think the past should stay in the past, it soon becomes clear that Marin’s sexual inexperience is a detriment to her work. The assignments Donovan gives her to make her more comfortable with her job are not only X-rated, they’re far more fun when done with a partner, which is when Off the Clock really heats up. Marin and Donovan have incredible chemistry and the sexual tension between them makes the pages of the book practically smolder. When they give into temptation for some off-the-clock fun, Ms. Loren’s talent for penning wickedly erotic scenarios becomes clear.

The heat Donovan and Marin generate is undeniable, but it’s the characters themselves who are the heart and soul of the book. Donovan has become cynical since Marin first met him. He doesn’t believe in the idea of soulmates, closes himself off from others, and is as talented a therapist as he is a terrible prospect for a partner. I loved peeling back the layers to Donovan’s character, and with each new aspect of his life I saw, my heart broke more for him. He’s a smart man, skilled and giving in his profession, and has an undeniable sex appeal. But underneath is a man who needs help, and perhaps because of their initial connection only Marin sees the true him. As for Marin, she’s a brilliant mix of intelligence, courage, determination, and vulnerability. Unlike Donovan, she has faced her past and acknowledges her fears, making her an incredibly strong heroine, one who doesn’t back down from anyone. Because she’s had to take so much on her shoulders from such a young age, she’s sexually inexperienced. That doesn’t mean she’s clueless; far from it. What she lacks is practical knowledge, so to speak, and her erotic discoveries are both sexy and entertaining.

Off the Clock is undeniably erotic, but that’s not enough to make it a stellar read in my mind. What takes this story to the next level is the intellectual and emotional connections Marin and Donovan have. They are each other’s equal in every way, and watching them become friends and colleagues is every bit as entertaining as seeing them become lovers. I was invested in Off the Clock because the hero and heroine are such multi-faceted, flawed, human characters. Marin and Donovan grow as characters and as a couple over the course of the book and the result is a refreshingly open, emotional, memorable romance. Add in a cast of endearing, fascinating secondary characters that make the world of The Grove come alive and you have one heck of a story. I absolutely loved Off the Clock and I cannot wait for the next Pleasure Principle tale!
