    One of THE BEST books I've EVER read!

    One of THE BEST books I've EVER read! If I were stranded on a desert island and could have one book with me, it would be this one. Not a cliché to be found, smart and realistic characters, excellent word choices, SMOKING HOTNESS, a steady pace and a very happy ending. I am Roni's newest biggest fan!!! Lane is perfect. A total alpha, but he's perfectly content with letting Elle have control...except in certain situations, sexual and otherwise, then I saw his true alpha-ness (and holy moly, you WILL dump your current book boyfriend for Lane). He sees past Elle's hard outer shell and coaxes a different Elle to the surface, in spite of the times she hurt him over the time they were together. Elle certainly earned her nickname of Ice Queen, and I enjoyed reading how Lane helped her take a very different look at things she ordinarily would have dismissed with her iciness. But, while she struggled with the realization that yeah, maybe she should be a little nicer, she stayed true to herself when a choice arose that she simply could not choose the higher road (and I don't blame her one bit...I couldn't have either). An erotic romance for sure (heavy on the "erotic" AND the "romance"), every single moment of this book was incredibly tasteful and full of equal parts emotional and physical. I seriously cannot say enough positive things about this book, and I will ABSOLUTELY, without a shadow of a doubt, read ANYTHING Roni writes!!!! (I received a copy of this book in consideration of an honest review)

    Good Read

    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."
