Review by Jackie: Tell Me Something & Ask Me Something by Aubrey Bondurant

The sexual tension is palpable; the erotic path they’re on is inevitable. 

Haylee Holloway has experienced more grief than a twenty-two year old should have to endure. When she moves to LA for a fresh start and takes a job as an assistant for an advertising company the last thing she expects is to have to step in last minute during a photo shoot as the model. Her bikini line and weight are suddenly open topics of discussion, and a client’s million dollar campaign is hanging in the balance. To cap it off, the multi-millionaire, gorgeous owner of the company shows up and takes charge. 

Josh Singer, the owner of Gamble Advertising is private, intense, and hard to read. His voice is sexy, his eyes are smoldering and when he learns of Haylee’s goal to save money for law school, he makes her an offer she can’t refuse: To move to New York City and work for him directly as his assistant. Haylee’s dilemma: how does she travel the world with a hot boss whose voice alone conjures up an erotic fantasy and not completely make a fool of herself? Frustrated with Josh’s mixed signals, Haylee finally puts it all on the line. Blurring both their professional and personal lives can they keep things temporary as planned or will they both realize some things weren’t meant to end? 

Full Length Standalone book with no cliffhanger.

I was given this book for a honest review
I love finding new authors and Aubrey Bondurant is something special, I was hooked from page one. This is the first book in The Something Series but to be honest it could be read as a standalone.
Haylee Holloway is 22 years old and has not had a great life she has moved to start a new life and is working as a assistant for a advertising company, the last thing she expects is to be asked to save the day on a shoot and step up as a model.  Not that the money won't be handy it will help to boost her law school funds.
Josh Singer is the handsome owner of the advertising agency and is at the shoot where Haylee saves the day, and is so impressed he makes her a offer she can't refuse to be his personal assistant until  school starts in the fall. 
Josh was treated badly by his ex wife and does not want a relationship that is until he spotted Haylee. Can he move on and trust again.....
Haylee only wanted to save enough money to help get her through law school but she fell hook line and sinker for her boss........
Both of these characters are easy to love as are the secondary characters in the book but Josh found a special place in my heart he can be vulnerable as well as in control, he knows what he wants and that's Haylee. There are twists and turns in this story and at times you think will they make it. I guess you need to read this book to find out ........
I am so pleased I was given the chance to read this book and I'm looking forward to the rest of the series.


How do you ask the question, when you know the answer may change everything?

Sasha Brooks has been focused on one thing her entire life: her career. Newly promoted as the vice president in a New York advertising company, she has beauty, brains, and one hell of a fierce reputation. But she also has a secret that she keeps carefully guarded.

Brian Carpenter is finding out that managing his newest VP isn't without its challenges, but when it comes to Sasha, he'd expect nothing less.
His easygoing personality and Southern charm are the yang to her yin and the calm to her storm.

Over the last eight years of their friendship, the flirtations, innuendos, and chemistry have almost led to more, but Sasha has convinced herself they're better off just friends.
Until the moment she thinks he's with someone else.

Is she too late to admit her feelings?
Gathering the courage to ask the question, Sasha discovers she isn't the only one keeping secrets.

You think you know someone....

Book 2 in The Something series and this is Sasha Brooks ( Sasha-B-Fierce) and Brian Carpenter's story.
Sasha has always wanted and focused on having a great career and to all her colleges  she is composed and calm l but that is the face she wants them to see, on the inside is a person who fights her anxiety disorder and insecurities on a daily basis.
Brian Carpenter is her boss they worked together until she got promoted to VP of the New York branch of there advertising company. Brian has loved Sasha from afar for the last eight years but he wants more than friendship and he works out a plan to get a friends with benefits package with her. 
Will Sasha be able to let go of the control, will she let Brian see the side she hides so successfully .......
One of the things I loved about this story was how  the characters made mistakes but didn't always admit to these mistakes making them more real to me, I loved how Aubrey included the anxiety disorder and how well this book was written. The characters have chemistry and you can't help falling for them, the sex scenes are  pantie wetting  hot but most of all I loved the development of Brian and Sasha as they overcame the issues that come with having a secret affair with your boss ..... 
Can't wait for book 3

Hi, my name is Aubrey and I'm a working mom who loves to read, write and travel. 

If you were to describe my writing style, I'd say it's "Adult Contemporary Erotic Romantic Comedy". How's that for a mouthful? Picture chick-lit with the sex scenes or "smutty chick lit" and there you have it! :-)

When I'm not working full time, or spending time with my family I'm on my keyboard typing away on my next story. I only wish there were more hours of the day!

I'm a former member of the military and passionate about veteran charities and giving back to the community. I love a big drooly dog, a fantastic margarita, and football. 

The "Something Series" will consist of five books. The first one, Tell Me Something came out in June 2015. The second book, Ask Me Something came out in November 2015. Bet Me Something will be out in 2016.
