REVIEW: Willow James' PUMPED Earns Five Hot and Heavy Stars!

REVIEW: Willow James' PUMPED earns five hot and heavy stars!Willow James (aka author Sara Humphreys) has a new series that we should be talking about. Yes, I mean her Stilettos and Seductions series that centers around a naughty lingerie (and sex toy) shop called Stilettos. PUMPED (Stilettos & Seductions Book One) is a fun read. While described as erotic (which may or may not deter some people from reading), while this book is definitely steamy, I don't find that it needs any warnings. This is, really and truly, a hot, beautiful romance with some very sexy scenes.
Don't get me wrong, PUMPED is more than a little naughty as well as entertaining, sexy, and yes, serious too. It's a novella of about 100 pages, so it's a fairly quick read that I think you'll definitely enjoy. The story opens as dedicated student Skylar, who works full-time at a lingerie (and sex toy) shop Stilettos, is watching for her daily dose of eye candy to walk by, a man who's started work at the office building across the street she calls Mr. Wall Street. Marco, the owner of Stilettos, knows of her fascination with this buttoned-down hunk and plays cupid when said hunk wanders in to Stilettos, just as she's confessing a rather embarrassing lack of "lovin'" in her life.
Griffin (aka Mr. Wall Street) takes Skylar out for a walk and a cup of coffee then makes a proposition that rocks her world. He wants to hook up with her for sex-only, a no-string, no-emotions, non- relationship relationship. At first she seems upset, but when it is apparent that he's been checking her out at the same time she was looking at him, she seems a bit more receptive to this suggestion and becomes fascinated by the opportunity.
She agrees to the bargain as she's not only attracted to him, but at the same time she doesn't want the hassle that she feels a real relationship and love would bring to her life. From the example of her BFF Jess, who keeps having her heart broken by her cheating boyfriend Scott, I can totally understand her lack of interest in and fear of falling in love with someone.
From their first naughty date in the back row of the movie theater, it's apparent that Griffin and Skylar have a connection - probably a real connection. This to me is the real part of the story. I won't share any more details, but if you love a good romance mixed in with some HOT, spicy, and ever-so-naughty action, you'll love PUMPED. I'm definitely looking forward to the next two books in this trilogy and finding out more about what will be happening at Stilettos.
In conclusion, Willow James' PUMPED, her first entry in her new Stilettos & Seductions series earns five hot and heavy stars!

From the Publisher
Stilettos & Seductions Book 1
PUMPED by Willow James
Price $2.99
Skylar Sole is focused on work, getting her degree, and dreams of the future. Men and relationships have never been at the top of her priority list. Besides, if a girl's got a good vibrator, then why risk a broken heart? The closest thing she has to a relationship is ogling the hottie from the office park who saunters by Stilettos lingerie shop every day on his way to the deli next door. Getting a glimpse of Mr. Wall Street had become the highlight of her work days and he had become the star of her fantasies. However, one Sunday afternoon, fantasy becomes reality when Mr. Wall Street shows up at Stilettos with that sexy, lopsided grin and a tantalizing proposition.
