She’ll bare everything…except the truth.

Tina Borlenghi is a billionaire businesswoman, heiress to the Borlenghi fortune, and living la dolce vita. She’s also a magnet for men who crave fame and celebrity. So while in New York City launching a new fashion boutique, Tina is more than intrigued when sports bar owner Luke Pederson mistakes her for a sales assistant. He’s sexier than sin and only interested in her. What’s the harm in a little steamy role-playing?

Luke can’t get enough of Tina. And yet, something feels…off. Why is she so secretive? As their role-playing encounters become more erotic, Luke’s suspicions grow. The woman rocking his world is hiding something. Something big. He’s ready to play for keeps, but finding out who Tina really is may just turn the tables on everything he thought he knew about love.

4 - "You're here for a good time, not a long time." Stars!

I really enjoy Joan Kilby’s writing style. Turning the Tables was what I would class as an easy-going, low drama kind of romance, with a likeable couple that had an expected outcome. That isn’t a problem for me if I am enjoying the storyline, ...more

By Kae June 06, 2015

Loved that this book was basically about Tina and Luke. Not a ton of other characters to try and keep track of and remember. The sub characters the author did use had a place in the story and never felt like they were just fillers as so many stories often do.

Completely went into this one blind, but it was great. There's something about a sexy story involving people from opposite sides of the social spectrum, probably because when you see them fall for each other you know it's r ...more

By Riki June 09, 2015

Yes, yes, yes! This book did exactly what I have been looking for in a romance by twisting the alpha status from hero to heroine. In Turning the Tables, Tina is the alpha heroine and I absolutely loved her self-assurance and air of pure power. This is a woman who knows what she wants and has worked ...more

This was a very true to reality story. We take it for granted that the rich naturally have a life to covet, not keeping in mind that they too can be victimized by people and the media. Tina and Luke have an explosive chemistry, a chance encounter leading them to fulfilling each other's desires. Luke ...more

I really liked this book. Great storyline and super sweet, hot hero(Luke). I was not too fond of Tina. I hated that she kept lying and keeping things from Luke. She sort of ruined the story a bit for me. She seemed wishy -washy to me.
