BLOG TOUR: The Hot Lunch Series by ER Pierce


Thanks to Bewitching Book Tours for hosting this blog tour. I'm sharing my review of The Hot Lunch Omnibus today. Happy reading!

*****************************

Summary:

Eating Out

Samantha Baker isn't interested in being another notch on Ryan Fellows bedpost, but she can't deny he's got style, charisma, and prowess. When he invites her to have lunch out of the blue, she finds she can't ignore the way his eyes caress her, nor the way he seems to know exactly what she needs...

Contains references to light BDSM in the form of a spanking, and Samantha must call Ryan "Sir."

Hot or Cold

Ryan and Samantha are back, and steamier than ever...

Samantha Baker spies a present waiting on her desk when she arrives at work one morning, and her heart skips a beat as she realizes it's from Ryan. What sexual escapes does he have in store for her this time?

Can Ryan give up his rigid restraint and schedules in favor of impulse and passion?

Will Samantha be the one to make him lose control?

Table for Two

The third installment of the Hot Lunch Saga is here! Will Ryan and Samantha work out their differences, come together and find love? Or will their pasts tear them apart? The erotic romance continues...

Ryan and Samantha met at work and started a lunch time affair in Eating Out that quickly morphed into a sexy relationship in Hot or Cold. Now in Table for Two, they must decide if their past baggage is worth the risk, or whether they should go their separate ways.

After the events in Hot or Cold, Samantha finds herself alone, confused, and pissed off. Ryan is nowhere to be found, and she goes to great lengths in Table for Two to track him down and make him see reason.

Room 306

Philip Tanner has one rule: Don't mix work with pleasure.

His strict no dating at the workplace policy has always served him well, that is, until recently when a sultry brunette started haunting his every fantasy in the form of family attorney: Katie Riley.

Katie Riley has a secret crush.

Her best friend Samantha knows she's infatuated with a certain prosecutor, but she's held back her passion out of respect for her friends new relationship. However, she can't help craving the one thing she told herself not to want: Philip Tanner.

Now she's tired of ignoring her carnal desires and she's about to present him with a case he won't be able to refute.

Room 69

Philip Tanner broke his only rule and mixed business with pleasure, in the delectable form of Katie Riley, and now he has a choice to make. Should he date and woo her, or try to flush her from his system for good?

Katie Riley isn't sure she wants more than a one night stand with the sexy prosecuting District Attorney, Philip Tanner. She's afraid he may be the one man with the power to break her heart.

Will she put her case on the line in order to stake her claim?

Thoughts:

EATING OUT was sexy, but very short. It’s just one tryst, their first, and has almost no story to it at all. It’s a teaser really. HOT OR COLD is again really just the one love scene, but there is a little more to it this time. There’s some emotion and backstory that leads into the next short story. TABLE FOR TWO is longer (includes chapters) and a lot more emotional. We learn about both Sam and Ryan and what has happened to make them the way they are. There’s always been a tiny bit of kink, but this one takes it a step further with handcuffs. It’s actually quite a sweet story by the end, but I think all three should have been one story instead of breaking it up.

ROOM 306 was predictable and another teaser. There wasn’t even a love scene in this one. It’s got its cute moments, but altogether it’s short and lacking. ROOM 69 is longer (again including chapters this time) and still nothing but a tease. There’s a love scene, but it’s unsatisfying leaving the reader just as frustrated and disappointed as the characters. The next book that I assume is the conclusion, or at least the next part, of Philip and Katie’s story isn’t part of the omnibus, so I have to go get that separately when I find time.

Overall, the last two books shouldn’t even be called part of the “Hot Lunch” series because other than involving characters from the first three, there’s no lunch dates. They just seemed like a bunch of serials that could’ve been better as a larger book (or two).

Bottom Line:

The Hot Lunch Series Omnibus is a series of quickies with a dash of story and real emotion. If you’re looking for a sexy quick read, it’s worth checking out.
