Love or Money by Cara Addison
By Carmen D. Ferrer-Torres on July 14, 2016
Format: Kindle Edition
I enjoyed this book very entertaining. The heroine is feisty and doesn’t suffer fools. I love the protective streak she has for her children and those she holds dear. Cara Addison is a new author to me but she is awesome writer.

Karen Hrdlicka rated it ★★★★★

Cara Addison has become one of my favorite authors. Her stories are always fresh, different, and an experience to read. Ms. Addison’s stories are always well crafted and the sexual tension smoldering and hot. This book weaves the best of these and adds in intrigue and suspense creating a very enjoyable reading experience.
Love or Money is vastly different from anything I have read by this author or by anyone else.
The story revolves around Morgan Gibson: wife, mother, and business woman. Morgan’s husband is, plain and simply, an ass. Working a dead end job, he allows Morgan to give their twins not only the material things her career can buy, but also the only parental support they receive. In a loveless marriage, Morgan is unprepared for an unexpected windfall and the new life it provides. Her change in circumstances allows her to dump her crappy ex and lead a life where she can seek out the love and intimacy her life has been missing.
Morgan is a very supportive mother to her teenage twins, following their activities and being actively involved. So every move she makes after the big change in her life has her children’s best interests at heart. There are several twists and turns in this book and truly it is not only a journey of self-discovery for Morgan, but it is also a tale of two loves. While I enjoyed the part of the book about her relationship with a younger man, when she met Erik I was elated. The connections she felt with both men felt real and dynamic and I rooted for both men. However, doubt crept into my mind with both of them and until the very end I was in suspense over the outcome. As always with the ending comes a surprise, leaving the reader hopeful for the future and satisfied with their reading experience.

The Lives of Brett and Austin

Their connection was instant and the chemistry  was undeniable. Brett Tanner and Austin Campbell found something special in their chance meeting in San Diego. Over the years, we’ve seen how this couple is Going The Distance.


Take a look at what readers are saying about this steamy series…

From the first chapter, this book is SIZZLING! Brett and Austin meet in a surprising way, but they sizzle between the sheets, on the couch, at the night club, etc. I love how she inspires through her sex life with Brett through her writing and that Brett and her inspire her writing. The passion they have for each other inspires my husband and I as well.
I love Austin’s boldness and how she is so comfortable with her own sexuality. This story has some very adventurous sex scenes and two very passionate people, who want it often and anywhere they happen to be. It is a read that should require a warning that it may be too hot to read in public or you may be squirming in your seat.

★★★★★ ~Going The Distance


Austin is in marketing, but off hours, she writes erotica. Brett is in investment banking. They meet while on vacation. Within minutes, the are in bed together. When the vacation ends, they must decide if the distance between Toronto and New York is too much.

This is a solid book with wonderful characters and a well-developed plot. However, it is the sex that makes this book! It is packed full of sex scenes, and they are HOT! I admit to rereading several of them.

★★★★★ ~Going The Distance


Filled with surprising humour, this erotic romp about a couple struggling to come to terms with family has sexy scenes and great dialogue.

Austin and Brett are familiar, comfortable characters that the reader will fall instantly in love with. They are a couple very much in love too – plenty of fun, monogamous sex to be had here, with the storyline refreshingly revolving around difficulties external to their relationship, not in it.

This book has it all – exotic travel, engaging storyline, believable characterisations; Addison has subtly built a distinct world capable of pulling you in with before you even know it. It was a pleasure to grow with the characters as they matured and developed (while still enjoying a veryhealthy sex life). Anyone that loves romance with a bit of extra spice will enjoy this read – especially the happy ending.

It is worth noting that this book is a sequel, but you don’t need to have read the first to enjoy it.

★★★★★ ~The Fortuitous Pen


This is the third story in which Ms. Addison brings us Austin and Brett. It stands well alone but you really should read the series, and fall in love with them from the beginning. In this installment – Austin and Brett have been married for almost a year. Austin is recovering from a traumatic birth, and they are settling in as a new family. The scenes with baby Ella, a heartwarming and you can feel the love they have for both each other and the baby.

Then just to keep it interesting, Cara throws in a crazed stalker. That will keep you turning pages, written so well I almost believe that she may have some personal experience with one.

Ms. Addison is quickly becoming a favorite author. Her writing keeps you interested, her characters are strong and well developed and pull you into the story. Brett and Austin have there HEA, but its wonderful to see how their relationship blossoms over time. If you are looking for a steamy romance to read by the pool this summer – Unwanted Attention is more then worth the time.

★★★★★ ~Unwanted Attention


An enjoyable but heartbreaking tale of struggles, challenges, marriage, loss, grief, and love. A successful couple face struggles and challenges but can they find their HEA, or will it tear them apart?
A quick read, which is told with such heartfelt emotions that it is both believable, emotional, and realistic. Well written. Some readers may find it emotionally draining, but it is worth the time to read.

★★★★ ~The Guardian


Cara Addison writes a great heartfelt touching story. Brett and Austin are living a great life everything is perfect. Brett’s best friend is killed and he and Austin take on the responsibility of the raising the child. Brett is struggling with the death and hurting his family. I do not want to tell the book, so you need to read it for yourself to find out if the marriage survives.

★★★★★ ~The Guardian


5 Star Review for The Cay


Great Beach Read

By Karen Hrdlicka on April 9, 2016

The thing I’ve noticed about Cara Addison’s books is her female characters are always strong. I love Aemelia’s strength and the fact that she knows what she wants and goes for it. A smart business woman in a traditionally male dominated world, she manages a large fortune and plans to build her father’s dream. Duke is just as strong willed as Aemelia and together they are a passionate couple. Brought together by a night of sex, neither thought it would be a long term arrangement.
When a true relationship develops the journey becomes bumpy. His overbearing family, a fib gone wrong, and emotions that were unexpected makes for a fast paced read by Ms. Addison. The tropical setting for a large part of the book, makes it a great beach for the summer or a mental vacation by a fire in the winter. This banter between Duke and Aemelia is sexy and fun and their sex scenes are scorching. There are several unexpected events in the book, and while there are times when the reader may want to smack the characters for their actions, like real life nothing is predictable. I look forward to the next book by Ms. Addison.

heather reviewed Reflection

WOW… I read this last night and talk about a WOW read! This book incredibly hot, and just incredible all the way around. By the summary, it seems like a pretty simple story, but what Cara did with it is amazing.

The author did did an amazing job making this book more than just a sexy romp. There was depth to the characters, some wonderful internal conflict in both sides, and an amazing story.

“That was amazing,” Excerpt

An excerpt from The Cay by Cara Addison

“That was amazing,” Aemelia purred.

Duke rolled onto his side and looked into her eyes. “I agree, it was amazing,” he said softly as he brushed her hair over her shoulder.

“That’s exactly how I’m meant to be fucked,” she admitted. As soon as she said it, she wondered what possessed her to speak so candidly to the man she had met just three hours earlier. She placed her hand on his chest and closed her eyes. If she was being honest, then she might as well share everything that was on her mind. “When I felt your finger tease my ass, I was sure that you were going to fuck me there.”

Duke chuckled softly. “Would you have let me?”

“Yes,” she said candidly. She felt a twinge between her legs at the though of having his huge cock inside her ass. She definitely would have let him finish in her ass.

“I wish I would have known that.”

Duke Weston and Aemelia Davidson

Duke Weston and Aemelia Davidson

Aemelia lifted her head off the pillow and gently kissed his lips. “I asked you what you like. If you’d have asked in return, I’d have told you.”

He returned her kiss. “Fair enough. I’ve learned my lesson.” His heart pounded as her eyelids fluttered as she looked at him with eyes that were becoming hypnotic to him. “What do you like?” he finally asked.

She sighed. “Pleasure. Gratification. Indulgence. I like giving just as much as receiving.” She looked down at his cock that had softened and ran her finger over the dense, flaccid flesh. “I love sucking on a cock,” she said softly.

Duke ran his hand across her shoulder and down her arm. “I’m sorry I denied you that.” He turned her head to face him. “Perhaps we can do this again and I can make some of these wrongs, right for you.”

She gave him a long kiss. “I am not complaining. I like to know that I’ve been fucked, and you definitely delivered on that.”

“What is this?” he asked as he ran his finger over a tiny depression in the toned skin of her abdomen.

“A scar,” she said candidly as she subconsciously ran her finger over the barely visible blemish. “I had surgery as a teenager…”

What do the characters of Aemelia and Duke look like?

SOLVE THE PUZZLE to find out.

Can two friends with benefits make the leap to a life of happily ever after? Duke Weston thinks they can, when his casual relationship with Aemelia Davidson gradually turns serious. The problem is that Duke puts too much emphasis on appearances, as he tries to appease his mother and gets in too much of a hurry to walk Aemelia down the aisle.

Pushing him away, the independent and sometimes self indulgent fund manager flees Manhattan and escapes to the tiny Cay her father left for her in the Turks and Caicos. Determined to see her father’s dream of development become a reality, Aemelia reconnects with her teenage sweetheart for a secret affair. It’s an affair that lasts until Duke comes after her, determined to win her back.

Resisting him at every turn, Aemelia gives her full attention to the project inspired by her father, building luxury beach houses to surround a marina that will be home to luxury yachts and sailboats from around the world.

Can Aemelia see herself in a committed relationship with Duke? Is The Cay the place where she will finally put down roots and make Duke happy?

Greed, love, respect, and temptation must be overcome in this story of The Cay.

The Dinner Party

11-couple-making-love-oleksiy-maksymenkoEverything is ready for the dinner party.  Holly is in the bedroom, getting dressed. Guests will arrive any minute.

As Adam walks confidently into the bedroom to pick out the perfect pair of shoes he wants her to wear with the pale pink dress he bought for her, he smiles. Her skin taunts him as he pulls back her hair to kiss her neck. His beautiful devoted Holly clasps her necklace and announces, “I’m ready.”
He whispers in her ear, “one thing is missing.” As he slowly bends her over, he shows Holly the butt plug he has picked out for her to wear for him.

Pushing her thong to the side, he presses the toy against her tight little ass, making her flinch and then whimper. He know exactly how to tease her. He knows how to touch her ass to arouse her and he knows exactly how to make her come. As the toy slides in place, he gives her his instructions. “You’re to wear this toy all night, but you’re not to come. I’ll be watching you, Holly. You’re not to touch yourself. Only I can do that for you. If you can hold back, you’ll be very well rewarded for pleasing me.”
It was a treat to see her struggle with her urges as he helped his love stand back up. He gently put her thong back in place, smoothed out her dress, and then as he kisses her lips, he gave a press of his fingers against her ass to gently move the toy around until her knees buckled.

At the ring of the doorbell, he stepped back, leaving Holly trembling and desperate for a release. Adam took her hand, smiled, and lead her from their room.
At his side, she takes her first steps ever so gingerly. It’s evident, that every motion makes her heart pound and he knows from experience that her pussy is aching. With every step down the stairs he knows that she could cry out in orgasm, but she won’t give in.

Her cheeks are flushed when he opens the door to welcome guests. He watches her closely as friends arrive and they serve drinks. Every step, every move she makes is a constant reminder of his challenge for her.
At dinner, he intentionally asks Holly to pass the food, or fetch drinks, knowing that sitting down, standing up, walking…all have her quivering. She can see his smile. Knowing that the she is still on the edge and can barely make conversation with friends, makes his cock harden once more.
After appetizers, Adam gets up front the table to join her in the kitchen to help with the entree. As she spoons roasted potatoes onto the platter, his hand trails down her back to find her ass. His fingers are swirling around the edge of that toy and she can barely breath. The more subtle the motion, the more intense the pleasure. Her whimpers have turned to full out moans. When she looks up at him, begging with her eyes to let her come. He gives her a smile and nod.

Her eyes close tight. He knows what’s coming will be delightfully intense.
“No, no. Open your eyes and look at me,” he instructs.

With one hand gripping the counter and one clasped tight on his forearm, Holly looks up into his eyes and lets out a cry that immediately halts all conversation in the next room. He calls out to the guests in the next room, assuring everyone that everything is fine as Holly stands trembling, gasping for air. She’s not fine. She’s euphoric. Waves of pleasure are still washing over her like an aftershock after an earthquake.

She has earned her reward.

Finally able to focus on the food, His love finishes  plating the meal. Just as it’s about to be served, he leans in, kisses her passionately, and then starts fingering her clit through the sheer fabric of her dress. He’s not letting her leave that kitchen until once again, she’s aroused. The tension between her legs is building and she is quietly begging him to fuck her, but that’s not his plan.
Another smile. A kiss, and he picks up the vegetables, turns, and returns to the dinner table.
She now knows how this evening is going to go. He’s  going to tease and taunt her pussy all night. He’s going to watch her juggle the demands of hosting a party while all she can think about is her aching pussy.

When dinner is over, they move to more comfortable seating. He sits down on the sofa and invites her to sit next to him. Everyone is comfortable with a full drink in their hand.
As she sits, he slides his hand under her bottom. To everyone, it just looks like his arm is around her, but to Holly, she knows another round of delightful torture is in her future.
Her muscles twitch, tighten, and release as his fingers move against the toy. He can tell that she’s barely following conversation. She’s entirely focused on his fingers. When she lets out a whimper that only he can hear, he leans in and whispers in her ear, instructing her to go to the powder room down the hall.

She’s flustered and shaking when he opens the door to join her. She can immediately see the bulge in his pants and she knows that he’s rock hard and has been for awhile. His precum has soaked through his pants. The sight sends a shiver through her body, straight to her pussy.
His fingers are immediately in her hair, pulling Holly in to kiss hungrily her as he slides her skirt up over her hips. With urgency, he sets her on the vanity and tugs her thong off her hips, tearing it at the seam. He thrusts his fingers inside her pussy. It’s wet and her pussy is hot, swollen, and slippery with with her fluids. As his fingers urgently fuck her, he murmurs into her hair, “remember, you’re not to come. Not yet.”
She needs him. Desperately. She is struggling to unzip his pants, even though she can barely focus. Finally, she is able to get his pants off his hips and they fall to the floor. Her fingers are wrapped around his cock, stroking him hard and fast, causing precum to flow down his shaft to coat her hand.
With his fingers pressing against her G-spot, her entire body trembles. She needs to cum and he knows it.
With his forehead pressed against hers, he moans and then she turns the tables and tells him what’s going to happen next.

“You’re going to make me cum. Then, while I’m still in full orgasm, you’re going to fuck me hard. You’re going to slam your entire cock deep inside me.”

His voice of agreement sends her over the edge. She is coming and she’s coming hard. Her pussy is pulsating tight against his fingers and her ass is throbbing around the toy he picked for her.
Before she can recover, he’s fucking her, just as she asked. With his fingers still inside her, he slams his cock inside her pussy. The double penetration sends her into another extreme orgasm. Delirious, she pulls his fingers from her pussy to suck them into her mouth, tasting the juices that he has teased from her all night long
Neither of them last long. Hours of teasing has had them both on the edge.
Judging by her expression, the rush of hearing him …feeling him come, pleases her.

Gasping for air, their bodies finally relax. With his hand on her pussy, she knows this isn’t over.

“I want you to keep my cum and that toy inside you for the rest of the night.”

Dressed, he smooths her hair. As much as she knows they have to get back to the party, he can tell that she would prefer to stay where they are to kiss and fuck the rest of the night.
In a moment of urgency, Holly stuffs her ripped thong into his pocket as a reminder of the encounter. Smiling, Adam pressed his fingers against her ass as a reminder that she is still stuffed with his toy. Stepping out the door, he gives her ass a good smack, sending vibrations through her ass to her pussy making her ache all over again.

For the rest of the night, his  smile and knowing look is enough to make her shiver. As enjoyable as the party is, Holly is relieved when people start to go home. When the house is empty, they begin the task of tidying up. Adam intentionally makes her walk from room to room to retrieve glasses and trash, knowing how hard it is for her to keep his cum inside her with the toy teasing her with each step she takes.

Finally, Holly can only stand in front of him. If she move a muscle, she’ll explode. He  knows how aroused she am. He can see that she is trembling. Her eyes are begging him to fuck her, to take away the tension, and give her the release she desperately needs.

Adam pushes back the dishes off the island, grabs her, and pushes her down hard against the counter. In a flurry of activity, he lifts her dress. There is the sound of his pants hitting the floor seconds before he gives her bare ass a hard smack. It is everything she can do to hold back an orgasm.

“I can feel your cock between my thighs and all I can think about is having all of your nine inches inside my pussy.”

Adam must decide…how exactly, will he fuck her tonight.
