Do Not Disturb by Stephanie Julian
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

GENRE: Contemporary
THEME: Mature, Romance


A seductive affair is twisted by secrets in the latest Salon Games novel from the author of Over Exposed.

To the outside world, Dane Connelly is the playboy heir of a media mogul, his life a series of one-night stands with no commitments. Only in the Salon does he satisfy his darker urges with willing partners. Life was perfect…until his best friend fell in love. Now Dane knows exactly what he’s been missing—and exactly who he wants.

Talia Driscoll enjoys creating perfection. She loves bright, glittery parties and fairy tale weddings. But she knows the illusion is short-lived. Nothing lasts forever and everyone lies to get what they want. After all, she lies about her true identity every day.

After an explosive night at the Salon, Dane is determined to sway the reluctant Talia to be his completely. But the secrets that keep them apart are at odds with the erotic passion that draws them together…

I have so been missing out! This is my first try reading the Salon Games as well as a title by Stephanie Julian. I’m happy to say I enjoyed every steamy and emotional driven moment. Since this is the fourth in the series, I would say try starting at book one, I really wanted to know more of the past of Dane, Annabelle and Jed, and I feel I would of gotten more connected to them all if I had read about their coupling. Again, this is just my opinion you can still easily dive into this book without reading the rest.

Dane Connelly has a unique connection with his best friends a fiancé Annabelle. He cares for them both as good friends but with their wedding coming up he knows its time to move on. Thus comes in Talia, Annabelle’s best friend and an event planner. The attraction sparks between Talia and Dane, they cant seem to get enough of each other but Talia doesn’t know the ménage relationship Dane shares with her friends.

I found Talia and Danes relationship refreshing, yes they sleep together quickly, but they develop this undeniable bond. Talia has a big secret and Dane is dealing his relationship with his friends. But I couldn’t get enough of their passion and the scenes in the Salon were smoking hot. But be warned there is some tension from both sides once the secrets start unraveling.

Overall there is something about Dane that just stole my heart, his dominant and sweet side just makes a girl go weak at the knees. Talia is someone he really needed, they both worked career wise and romantic wise. My only issue was with Annabelle, I wasn’t a big fan of hers, and something just hit me the wrong way with her. I want to read the first book so I can get more of her perspective. In the end its all about the power couple, I loved the writing and the romance, I look forward to reading more of the couples introduced and the Salon. If your looking for a well written plot with some twist and tension, and of course memorable smoking hot romance, this is the book for you.
