Torn One will break her trust – One will break her heart – One will kill for her.

“Blown away, floored and left speechless. Torn is a story of love, one that will toy with your heart and emotions-to the max. This one will chew you up and spit you out raw. True to its title, you will be torn, gutted and slayed. 5 ‘Best. I. Ever. Had.’ Stars” – Read & Share Book Reviews.

When Sky’s parents moved from San Francisco to Boulder City in Nevada, she thought her life was over, until she met the Hudson boys. Two years older than her, tattooed bad boy Nate was confident, cocky, good looking, and a straight talker. He was the unattainable guy that all the girls wanted, but the one their fathers warned them to steer clear of. Josh had all of his brother’s looks, but he was the sweet charmer your mother would beg you to marry. Their cousin Billy lacked the brothers’ good looks, so relied on his quick wit to attract the girls.

When all three of them set their sights on Sky, they became competitive, and cracks in their close bond began to form.

Torn between her loyalty to all three, and feelings for one, Sky was faced with a dilemma.

When she made her decision, she had no idea that her choice would set them all on a path that would tear the group apart.

Torn is a standalone new adult erotic romance novel, which is heavy on the angst. A box of tissues is likely to be required. Out on 31st August 2016.

My Review ~ 5 stars

Love, Passion and Sacrifice!

Oh my goodness! Torn, by CJ Fallowfield is one hell of a ride! The author played my affections like the proverbial violin throughout.

When Sky Torres moves with her parents from San Franscisco to Boulder City Nevada, nothing prepares her or the three Hudson boys (brothers Nate and Josh and cousin Billy) for the emotional s***storm that prevails and determines the course of their lives. All three want Sky as their one and only girl, yet there can only be one victor.

At first Sky attempts to maintain a friendship with all three. She has only just started her University course and is inexperienced when it comes to the opposite sex, so she sees no reason to rush things. Above all she does not want to threaten the tight family and friendship ties the boys have. Yet her own hormones and those of the Hudson males have other ideas and as the hot Nevada sun beats down on them, passions ignite and Sky is compelled to make her choice: should she choose bad boy Nate, to whom she is wildly attracted, his handsome and steady younger brother Josh or cousin Billy, the joker?

No one ever claimed that falling in love can be easy and the impact of Sky’s choice on the group is far more life-changing than the norm. Prepare to be blown away, not only by the hugely erotic love-making scenes of raw sexuality that this novel contains, but also by the emotional angst that ensues! I will not reveal more, except to say that Torn is a heart-stopping read with a truly awesome plot. At times I was too overcome with emotions to continue reading, but (and I’m so glad I did so) continue I did. I have read a number of CJ Fallowfield’s books and I love her characterisations, humour and devilish plot twists. In Torn she excels herself once again!

So, get your tissues ready, your favourite soft toy to commiserate with and blanket (to hide under when the going gets tough) and prepare for your emotions to be to be teased, tortured and torn apart!

I recommend Torn to readers of erotic-romance/young-adult romance – it will be a read that you will not forget any time soon!

*Review* ~ All That Glisters, by C. J. Fallowfield

Humorous Erotic Romance
Adult/18+ read

All that glisters


The spin off to the best-selling humorous erotic romance standalone, The Temptress.

Hunter Donovan. He was everything I openly loathed, but everything I secretly desired.

Cocky, arrogant, and crude. When Hunter wanted something, he pursued, relentlessly, until he got it. And right now, I was his prey. The trouble was, I didn’t want to be added to his endless list of conquests.

Gorgeous, masculine, with a body made for sin. The most perfect specimen of male I’d ever set eyes on, and he knew it. The trouble was, I saw the pain he was trying to hide, and I wanted to heal him.

He wanted my body, but I wanted his heart.

Coco Barella. She was everything I openly desired, but everything I’d convinced myself I didn’t need.

Beautiful, sexy, and sassy, all of the qualities that I wanted in my bed. Compassionate, loving, and perfect, all of the qualities I didn’t need in my life.

I needed to pull her to me, but at the same time I wanted to push her away.

When the sexual magnetism between two people is so hot, that it can scorch everything around it to ash, who will emerge from the flames victorious?

A standalone erotic romance novel, which contains adult content and is only suitable for the over 18’s

My Review – 5 stars

Simply Scrumptious!

All That Glisters is a beautiful and scrumptious erotic romance by C. J. Fallowfield. I laughed, I cried and I lived the lives of the wonderful characters as the author spun a rollercoaster tale of passion and desire between two seemingly mismatched individuals.

The read pairs man-whore Hunter Donovan with Coco Barella, a woman who does not under any circumstances do casual affairs or one night stands. Indeed, she is hanging out for Mr Right, marriage and a perfect HEA. Her new boss Hunter is just so wrong for her on all accounts. Yet from the very moment these two meet the sparks fly and the sexual tension is off the Richter scale!

C. J. Fallowfield is an absolute genius when it comes to both creating sexual tension and passionate, love-making scenes, executing both with equal aplomb.  One minute I was enjoying a real belly laugh from the sparkling dialogue and the next my heart was breaking as I questioned if Hunter and Coco could ever get together as the chasm between them was both too wide and too deep for them ever to breach it.

And Hunter, the male lead – just like the heroine Coco, I was torn between wanting to slap his arrogant face, offering him the comfort I suspected he deserved or submitting to his charms and jumping his bones! The book left me guessing throughout: Hunter’s character is so mercurial and complex and although Coco is a strong woman she has her own past to cope with.

The smexy and entertaining plot is anything but predictable! Indeed, it is beautifully crafted, with exceptionally well-drawn characters and plenty of action in and out of the bedroom, transporting the reader from London to Paris, New York and beyond.

All That Glisters can be read as a standalone but it also includes characters from the Temptress (click on the title for review): Lulu and Luc and Coco’s BFF the uber sexy and unforgettable Dom.

**REVIEW** ~ The Temptress, C. J.Fallowfield

Contemporary Erotic Romance

Adult/18+ Read

The temptress


There’s just something about a French accent, something that conjures images of romance, sex and passion. There’s a reason French is called ‘the language of love.’

Lulu McQueen runs an exclusive honeytrap agency, to test the fidelity of rich men for their suspicious partners. While her business flourishes and her track record in the field remains unbroken, earning her the nickname of The Temptress, her personal life isn’t so successful.

A trip to Paris, years ago, led to the most erotic encounter of her life with Luc, a charismatic, dominant, irresistible Frenchman. For one night she experienced bliss on a scale she’d never encountered and fled in the morning, ashamed of herself, but her Parisian one night stand was burned into her memories and no one since had compared.

With no one available on short notice, Lulu steps in to lure Mrs. Le Grand’s rich husband, for an extortionately high fee. Lulu’s in for the shock of her life when she finds her mark at the hotel bar. Luc Le Grand still has a face and body to make Adonis weep. He exudes confidence, masculinity and raw sex appeal.

The question now isn’t whether Lulu can tempt him, but whether she can resist him, retain her reputation and secure her fee, or whether she’ll fall under Mr. Le Grand’s spell. Again.

My Review 

Powerful, Emotional and Darn Sexy! Five Stars *****

The Temptress is the first book that I have read by C.J. Fallowfield and it is one powerful and emotional read with some sizzling scenes! An erotic romance it contains one hot French Dom, a sassy heroine who is very much his match and an adversary I wanted to punch! It also has a fab cast of supporting characters and witty and sometimes laugh-out-loud dialogue.

The heroine Lulu makes her living in a most unusual way, heading up an entrapment agency, spying on and gathering evidence for partners who believe that their other half is straying. Once I got my head around the concept of the business and the moral dilemma it creates, I began to enjoy the often humorous scenes, combining state of the art surveillance equipment and disguises with good old fashioned feminine wiles and seduction techniques. It was a bit like James Bond meets Mata Hari! Lulu runs a tight ship and my respect for this beautiful yet vulnerable heroine grew as the novel progressed.

The scenes between the hero and the heroine are darn hot and I was frantically fanning myself after their first fateful encounter! Luc, the French Dom, really made this book for me. Like Lulu I just melted at the sound of his accent and I adored his romantic side and his determination to win his woman against the odds. Both Lulu and Luc have a number of issues to face after an absence of six years and not just the fact that Luc is now married. There are  many tear-jerker moments and a handkerchief is essential, although I must say that I particularly loved how they dealt with their adversary and the seemingly impossible situation they were in.

Recommended for fans of erotic romance who are after a read that is both sizzling and humorous!
