“As with A Million Dirty Secrets, I enjoyed this “billionaire” romance but what makes this different is that Ms. Parker does not shy away from making their relationship simple.” ~ Under the Covers

A Million Guilty Pleasures takes off shortly after A Million Dirty Secrets has ended. Noah and Lanie’s contract no longer exist and nothing is holding them back from having a real relationship. However, Lanie’s mother is sick, and now there is a threat that their Dirty Secret will be revealed. It seems so simple if they just go out with it, but there is a lot at stake. Noah and Lanie are determined to overcome this and ending their relationship is just not an option.

As with A Million Dirty Secrets, I enjoyed this “billionaire” romance but what makes this different is that Ms. Parker does not shy away from making their relationship simple. There is no tug a war of emotions; Noah and Lanie knew what they wanted and they just went for it. Yes, there were hurdles, but the emotions were laid out for you to see. I love both their honesty and the willing to work things out to be together. And as far as steam factor, there are plenty in this book. I would say, even steamier this time around. I have to put in a warning; there are toys included in their play as well as oral and anal play. Noah certainly is teaching Lanie the ropes.

I love that there are different points of views (POV). Lanie’s thoughts cracked me up. I think her fear of “Death by Cockstragulation” was pretty funny. Her referral to her “cooch” as a 3rd person was also funny, though she mentioned it a bit much. Hearing Noah’s POV was heartwarming. It was nice to hear thoughts of a billionaire actually have a conscience. David’s POV was very entertaining. That bastard really is very arrogant, and his POV just revealed how much of an A-hole he is.

Million Dollar Duet has a sexy billionaire hero and quirky heroine. It is packed with steamy scenes, and as romantic as can be. If you like to read erotic billionaire novels, this series is for you.

About C.L. Parker

C. L. Parker is a romance author who writes stories that sizzle. She’s a small-town girl with big-city dreams and enough tenacity to see them come to fruition. Having been the outgoing sort for all her life—which translates to “she just wouldn’t shut the hell up”—it’s no wonder Parker eventually turned to writing as a way to let her voice, and those of the people living inside her head, be heard. She loves hard, laughs until it hurts, and lives like there’s no tomorrow. In her world, everything truly does happen for a reason.

I am young at heart and a die hard romantic living in California.I am happily married to a man who understands my love for reading, blogging and my book boyfriends. I have two beautiful girls who are also avid readers but forbidden to any of my books.I like running, CrossFit and eat healthy but not necessarily good at it.My motto is “I have the right to choose my calories” and often, my choice of poison is a bag of Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
