When her best friend drags her to a masquerade party on only her second night in town, Kate has a chance encounter with a mysterious masked man that dominates her, pushes her limits and leaves her craving more. He tells her that there is no long-term in their future, but he wants to continue to explore their sexual chemistry. The only trouble is, he wants their identities to remain a mystery. 
Benjamin Hyde has been burned by love and has vowed to never let another woman stomp on his heart. His days are filled with successful business ventures and his nights with one night stands at the club.

Ben wants to pursue Kate, but she is adamant not to mix business with pleasure. 

Normally Ben would agree, except when it comes to Kate.


~*~TSC REVIEW ~*~

4 STARS

This is the debut novel for Erin, and for a first book, it’s very good.

Kate and Ben have both been badly burned in the past. They both have trouble trusting people.

Kate is sweet and a little bit unsure of herself. She’s in a new city with a new job and the only soul she knows is her best friend Jen. Until she meets her new boss, who quickly becomes her other closest friend. Despite her attraction to him, she’s sworn off men.

Ben is smart, charming and very successful. He’s built a business from the ground up at a young age. He is attracted to Kate immediately, but vows remain her friend only. As far as she knows!

The appeal of this story is the mystery of Sir, and the draw of the forbidden. Who doesn’t want to have an erotic encounter with a sexy stranger? And believe me, they are erotic.

Overall, this is a very sweet, feel good romantic story about learning to trust and love again. Ben and Kate are so good for each other. I think that Erin has a good future in the indie world, and look forward to her next book – which I hope will be about Jen, because she seems like a wild card!

Letting out a yelp, I closed my eyes and tried to prepare myself for the fall, but nothing happened. Instead, I peeked through squinted eyes to find myself plastered to the chest I had run into, feeling a strong arm wrapped around my waist. My hands were splayed across the man’s pec, and I couldn’t help but flex my fingers slightly, feeling the muscle beneath the shirt. Wow.

 “Are you all right?” a rich, gravelly voice above me asked. I blinked and realized just how close I was to the perfect stranger, and tried to add some distance, but his hand remained firmly on my hip.

 “Yes, thanks to you… just a little unsteady.” I looked up and found myself stunned, looking into the eyes of the man who had been watching me dance.




Erin was born and raised in Ontario, Canada, where she resides with her husband and two kids. She is a stay-at-home mom and has long dreamed of having a published book of her own. Starting Over is her debut romance novel. When she isn’t writing, Erin​ has a love of most forms of art – painting, photography and crocheting.
