Discover your inner bad girl, and set her free…
Heather Pierce is done being a wallflower, both personally and professionally. Desperate to live a different life for one night, she attends a speed dating event. Maybe here, anonymous unless she chooses otherwise, she can become someone new. When a man way out of her league sits across from her, Heather gathers her courage and takes charge of what she wants, secretly fearing he won’t desire the real person she’s desperate to hide.
Top acquisitions officer and international playboy Tony Carmine is about to close the biggest deal of his career. But then he meets Heather at a speed dating event…and discovers losing control may be exactly what he needs. Her blossoming sensuality occupies his every thought, consuming him with the need to possess the most intriguing lover he’s ever encountered—until he walks into the boardroom and sees Heather on the other side of the negotiating table.
As an avid reader and aspiring novelist, I am pretty difficult to please when it comes to issues like voice and style. I've tossed many books to the side after only a few pages. Largely due to this, I had never read an erotica novel prior to receiving Vanilla on Top by C.J. Ellison. My only other... ...more

***BUDDY READ*** Ladies, the best about reading this book was reading it with you: Soraya, Debra, Marina, Georgia, Sarah, Em & Betty :)
I loved Tony from the beginning and he is the main reason for my 4 stars!
I didn't know speed dating worked like that, dammit I should have tried before! lol
You know how there are some books out there that you can connect to because the characters embody “the girl/boy next door”? The characters are believable and likeable and you care what happens to them. Well, there are even better instances when you have a more personal connection and think, wow t... ...more
Well, if you like lotsa sex, this book delivers. The first half I was a bit worried it was typical erotica with no real plot. That improved with time.
The story of Tony and Heather who meet at a speed dating session. He's a rich successful businessman who gets pressured into going with h... ...more
‘Oh! what a tangled web we weave…’ Alright, I know you probably read that in your most sinister voice. Try it in your most seductive voice, confident and in charge, then you’ll feel the power that Heather feels when she taps into her inner bad girl.
The story isn’t really about the deception or p... ...more

A solid 4 stars from me
Well, who knew speed dating could be so much fun! I won't give the game away, but the first chapter is v.hot and the eroticsm throughout is breathtaking. You definitely get a feel for Heather and Tony's emotions.
The whole book flowed well for me, fa... ...more
This was a short but fun and sexy read. I liked the idea of adding speed dating to the story. I don't know if I've ever read a book where speed dating was involved. I wish she had more guys during the speed dating session before meeting Tony but I'm not complaining too much because we are popped... ...more
Today's review is on Vanilla on Top by C.J. Ellisson
Ellisson is no stranger to the erotic genre by any means, and Vanilla on Top is proof of that. This book is well planed, well paced, and very well written. The characters are likeable, believable, and oh so hot, without anything being taken away... ...more
Super hot and impossible to put Dow. Heather and Tony's story is one of letting go of control and realizing by doing so, they gain everything. The romance developers naturally, with realistic conflicts and obstacles. A definite read. ...more

This is my first time reading a book by C.J Ellisson and it's one i wont forget for a while and
i don't think my hubbie will either ;) and i will be certain to check out her other work.
This is a well written book that not only has sexy sex s... ...more
I am a fan of C.J. Ellisson's Vampire vacation Series and so tried this book because I like her writing. A Writer of one genre often has trouble writing in another genre, so imagine my surprise when I found out this book was just as well written and captivating as her Vampire Vacation Series!
This is not my usual genre. I so loved Ms Ellison's other series (VV Inn) that I tried this one anyway. And, am I ever glad I did! The talent this author has for
character development, for making you believe her characters are real people, is fantastic. You are drawn in, and quickly begin to care... ...more
Tired of her life and being alone, Heather takes a leap outside of her personal norm. And WOW this is a big leap! She is nervous about it initially, but could this be a part of her that has been hidden in her personality? Tony is tired of always being in charge. When Heather demands that he turns... ...more
Loved this book! C.J. Ellisson draws you in from the first Chapter and doesn’t let go until the last word on the last page.

I LOVE this book!! I'm a bit of a wallflower like Heather and she just opens up and gains confidence and is able to start going after what she WANTS. She is commanding, and Tony needs a woman like Heather, to help him relax and slow down and see what he really wants in life! I would love to be ab... ...more
What an awesome book! I LOVED it. It grabbed me from the first chapter and never let go. Heather considers herself very "vanilla"--she's been trampled on her whole life. While at a speed-dating event she decides she wants to be someone else--someone in control, someone stonger. Enter Ton... ...more
Hot, hot, hot, C.J. Elisson does it again!!! This book is one of those books you just can't put down, it has you hooked from page one. I think most women will be able to relate with Heather the main female character in the book, and who doesn't want their own Tony lol? It has just the right amoun... ...more

My grandmother once told me that all men like the chase and all women like to be pursued. This is the way of the sexes. Upon reading this story I think my old Gran was right.
As I read this story it became for me an exercise in 'The Chase' more than an awakening of a woman's sexuality and for eve... ...more
