Book 1 is
Michael McKenzie’s story.
Michael is CEO of McKenzie Holdings and has a very bad habit of placing work before all else. His wife, Viv,
had died in a car accident, with her current lover, on the way to meet with the divorce attorney’s six years ago. Michael was divorcing her because he’d discovered she’d had a stream of lovers during the course of their marriage. Since her death he’s had no wish to get involved with anyone, until Lily.
Lily, having lost her job at Oakfield Development gains employment at McKenzie Holdings thinking she’s going to work as the Assistant to Dale Roberts, but unbeknown to Lily she has been
hired to work as Michael’s assistant. Lily is shocked, and disappointed to realize that the man she’s just been flirting with in the elevator is actually her boss.
Lily and Michael are instantly drawn to each other, but he’s her boss and Lily lives with her boyfriend of seven years. David, her boyfriend, has been acting strange for about five months which has caused Lily to re-evaluate her relationship with him and it comes up short, a lot. She had decided before meeting Michael that she wanted out of her relationship with David, but she has nowhere else to go, so she stays with him for now.
Michael and Lily finally start their relationship, which involves a lot of hot loving and scarves which Lily uses on Michael. Their relationship seems to be heading towards happily ever after, until Lily makes an announcement to Michael, which has him telling her to leave his home. She does, heartbroken, and runs to his brother Lucien.
Interview with Lexi
We are so exited to have the opportunity of interviewing the lovely Lexi. Thank you for joining us.
What/who inspired you to start writing?
I’ve read so many books, and have a head
full of ideas, so last summer I decided to try putting pen to paper (or fingers to keys). I’ve had advice from Marie Force, Jennifer Foor, Emily Stow and Amanda Bennett.
What is your favourite part of your book?
Oh well, I think the scarves scene is one of my
favourite, but I have read the epilogue over and over again with Sebastian, he is so funny and I can’t wait to start on his book!
When naming your characters, do you give any thought to the actual meaning?
No. The name Lily just popped into my head one day and kinda stuck, Michael not so much. I googled names for his brothers.
Would you ever write a different genre?
I have written one chapter for a Young Adult Book titled, The Beginning which is going to be the first one in my Mythical River Series. I just need the time to write it. Writing this as Finch Buchanan.
What advice would you give aspiring writers?
OMG – I still consider myself an aspiring writer, but one thing I would say and that is - don’t ever give up.... one day you’ll succeed!!
Is any part of your books, a true reflection from your life?
I wish lol!!
What made you come up with your book titles?
I knew I wanted to write a book series about a group of brothers, were each book was about a separate brother because I’ve had enough of picking up a book only to find it has a cliff hanger ending and the following books haven’t been written.
So frustrating. So I used the online Thesaurus to look up different words and alternatives for love, romance, sex!! The next book is Rapture!
Who is your favourite character from your books and why?
Although I loved Michael, I think I have to choose Sebastian for now. After I’ve written book five I might be saying something different though.
If you could work with any fellow author who would it be and why?
I could go on here, but they would have to be NJ Walters – I totally love how she writes and love her Jamesville Series and The Legacy Series, she has some unique ideas and seems a really great person.
Who are your top five authors/books
Marie Force – Anything she writes, but my all time favourite 1.
Love at First Flight 2. Coming Home.
Jennifer Foor – The Mitchell Series
Kellie Elliott – Wanted, Saved
JR Ward – Black Dagger Brotherhood
Lara Adrian – Midnight Breeds
Thank you for taking part.
Interview with Michael
What would you have done if the lovely Lily had not left David?
She didn’t really love him, so she would have eventually gotten
the courage to leave him. I can’t think about the alternative.
If you had to name a song to describe your relationship with Lily what would it
I don’t Want to Miss A Thing - Aerosmith
What is it that drew you to Lily?
Firstly her curves, then her scent, then her personality, but the biggest turn on was
knowing she had no idea who I was – she wasn’t after my money.
Why did you act the way you did when Lily met your brothers?
They are handsome men and after what Viv did to me, and not knowing Lily that well at the time, I couldn’t control my jealousy. I’ve never been jealous before and I didn’t know how to handle it.
What was it like taking a girl to meet your parents after spending years on your
I was nervous, but I guess I was more fixated on my brothers screwing everything
up for me.
If you had one wish each, what would ya wish for. (besides each other for
A house full of little girls, just like their mother!
Have you got you ideal wedding planned?
The wedding could take place anywhere as long as Lily showed
Interview with Lily
If you had to sum up your relationship with Michael in one song
what would it be?
I Melt by Rascal Flatts
Do you think you did the right thing leaving David?
Yes, my relationship with David had practically died and it was time to move on, for both of us.
If Michael was to buy you a car what car would it be and why?
A range rover is my dream car, because they are large and luxurious.
What was it like meeting all of Michaels family?
Nerve racking, because i’d never really met parents before and his brothers were great guys and loved winding Michael up. With David i’d met his parents before him, so that didn’t count.
If your parents were here do you think they would love Michael?
My mother would have sat him down at the kitchen table with pie and cream. (((laughs))) My father would probably have asked him if he wanted to see his gun collection!, but yeah they both would love Michael.
Did you ever consider staying with David?
No, although I did care for him, my love had dwindle over the past few
Did you ever believe in love at first sight before meeting Michael?
Although I’d been attracted to David from the first time i’d seen him, with Michael it was full on attraction – I couldn’t get enough of him.
Are you looking forward to your wedding?
Yes, although I have something to tell Michael once he gets my wedding ring on my
Tell us all about it.
The wedding is taking place at his parents ranch house and Pippa, his mother is
taking care of the marquee’s and food. George is going to give me away with Michael’s four brothers standing for him. Sylvia is my maid of honor, because she’s become a good friend of mine.
My dress is fitted, made from cream silk with a cream lace overlay and yes I have
stilts to wear as well. Sylvia’s dress is off the shoulders in pale lavender and is also made of silk.
Our wedding cake is four layers and the baker managed to make scarves out of
confectioners’ sugar to place around the bottom of each layer. Pippa was with Michael and I when we collected the cake. She had wanted a sneak peak, so the baker had removed one layer from the box to show her. I’d really had to bit my lip at the look on Michael’s face. He’d gone bright red when he’d realised it was like a scarf!!!
I can honestly say I have just completed reading an excellent book. SEDUCE!
When I was asked to review this book I felt an air of anticipation and
expectation due to some of the comments I had seen about it. On numerous
occasions I have been left empty when what I am thinking will be a good read
turns out not to be. Not this time, this book not only met my expectation but
truly exceeded it.
I found myself reading until 0230 and then picking it straight back up when I
awoke. I give this book a 5/5 stars and assure you all (ladies) you will need a
cold shower ready when you see what Michael and his 4 brothers (man whores) get
up to. Don't read all the reviews and spoil it, buy the book, you will not be
disappointed. ; )
