Title: Business Pleasures

Author: Lia Davis

Series: Pleasures of the Heart, book 1

Genre: Erotic Contemporary

Heat level: 5 Flames



Aimee Monroe never considered dating her boss. She needs a new beginning, not a big mistake. However, when the handsome, business lawyer, Kenton McDonnell, ask her to a dinner date with a new client and his wife, she finds it hard to say no. After one incredible night with Kenton, her attempt for a fresh start is ripped away when she returns home to find her abusive ex-husband waiting for her.

Kenton has wanted Aimee since the day she walked into the interview. Now he has the chance to make her his and nothing or no one is going to stand in his way. Especially not the ex-husband newly released from prison who has revenge in his sights.


Find it on:

Excerpt 3:
When he’d first saw her in the short black dress with the red lace wrap, he couldn’t find words.  The way her long black hair hung loose around her shoulders begged him to run his fingers through the silky strands.
Pulling into a parking space, he put his Lexus in park and turned off the engine. Damn it, he felt like he was in high school again.
He stepped out of the car and rushed around to the passenger side to open her door before Aimee could. He held out his hand and smiled when she took it and allowed him to tug her to a stand. “There’s one thing I have to do before we go inside.”
She tilted her head slightly and narrowed her gaze. “What’s that?”
He lowered his head and pressed his lips to hers. She stiffened for a moment, but when he brushed his tongue against the seam of her lips, she relaxed and opened for him. Their tongues tangled in an erotic dance as their mouths moved against each other. Aimee melted against him and he wanted to take her straight to his place so he could have her all to himself. The selfish side of him didn’t want to share her with his friends tonight.
Breaking the kiss, he stared into her green gaze and smiled. “That was hotter than I expected.”
She laughed. “You have away with words, Mr. Romantic.”
The corner of his mouth lifted. “Sorry…”
She pressed a finger to his lips, stopping him from swallowing his whole foot since he’d already stuck it in his mouth. “Shush. That’s what I admire must about you. You’re honest and don’t sugarcoat things. We should go inside. The Camptons are probably here already.”
He kissed her forehead and stepped back. “You’re right, as always.”
Ms. Davis was nice enough to guest post for me! Thank you! :)

Pleasures of the Heart setting
I love picking out the settings for my stories. A lot of times I use the setting throughout the series, sometimes I have the characters visit another place. I don’t really have a method on how I choose the setting. I just go to Google maps and look up cities and states.
Pleasures of the Heart series is set in Long Beach, California. Why? No particular reason other than it’s close to the beach. I love the ocean. Plus it’s California. I’ve never been there, so I get to research the area. Maybe I’ll get to visit the area someday.
The setting of a series and/or book is the foundation for me. I use the landscape and area culture to shape the characters and the story.
What’s your favorite setting in a book you’ve read?

My Review:
 This one is short but definitely very sexy and sweet with some action and suspense thrown in. It was a complete story so I wasn't left wanting at the end.
 I adored Kenton. He is so kind and caring! I love how protective of Aimee he is. He's trying to help heal her in a way teaching her that giving up control isn't about fear. Its about trusting the person.
 Aimee is also a very strong woman. I like how she wants to fight back and take control of her own life. Not let her ex rule her for the rest of her life after what he did.
 Aimee and Kenton are a great couple. It's a great story and start to a new series.
