SUDDEN PLEASURES earns 4.5 Blue Ribbons at Romance Junkies! 18 Jun. 2007
By Natalie S - Published on
Format: Paperback
Ashley Kimbrough is content with her life. She is independently wealthy and owns her own business. Satisfied with how her life is headed, she doesn't expect marriage to happen to her. Plus, she has The Channel, a clandestine women's-only cable network that caters to the fantasies of its viewers; so, her sex life is exceedingly fulfilling, as well. She has no interest in meeting men for marriage, until she meets with her advisors and is told the devastating news that her inheritance is in jeopardy unless she finds a husband. Completely thrown off guard, Ashley has no idea what she is going to do or how she is going to fulfill the terms of her meddling grandfather's will. Enter Ryan Mulcahy, who has an agenda all of his own.

Businessman and workaholic, Ryan Mulcahy finds himself in a similar predicament due to his father's will. It seems that in order to inherit and be in control of the company Ryan has made successful, he must find a wife by the time he is forty or his company will be sold and his sisters will benefit from the sale. Since Ryan's business acumen is the reason why the family company has been successful, he refuses to allow his sisters to reap what he has sown. Calling upon his lawyer, Ray, Ryan and he discuss his options and it seems that Ray has a cousin whose client is in the same boat as Ryan. One phone call later and the lawyers have set up a meeting between Ryan and Ashley Kimbrough to discuss the details of their "marriage of convenience".

I remember buying and reading books written by Bertrice Small when I was in college. Every book of hers I have read contained explicit and completely steamy love scenes where there were strong heroines and even stronger heroes. SUDDEN PLEASURES, while not a historical, is no less sensual and awe inspiring. Full of emotions and unruly feelings between Ryan and Ashley, I set in for an entertaining read - I got that and more. I loved how the characters started their marriage so nonchalantly thinking they would be able to contain themselves and not find love in their lives together. Ms. Small writes every character realistically and with realistic faults.

SUDDEN PLEASURES is the third book in Ms. Small's contemporary erotica Pleasures series, I recommend wholeheartedly reading the first two installments for enjoyment; but it is not necessary to enjoy this novel to the fullest. I am still and will always remain a faithful Bertrice Small fangirl.

Sudden Pleasures 26 Aug. 2013
By Elizabeth Bennet - Published on
Format: Paperback
Ashley Kimbrough owns Lacy Nothings a successful lingerie shop in Egret Pointe. She has a very old ancestral home and is grand daughter to one of the founders of Egret Pointe. She also has a subscription to the channel and lives any fantasy she wants, nightly. Ryan Mulcahy has his own furniture restoration business and is quite successful himself. The two are brought together by their attorneys because they both must marry to keep their inheritance. Ashley has had several previous failures in the attempt to keep what she has and Ryan is just ready.

The attraction is instant and you can feel the heat coming from both but each try to play it cool.They agree to meet again under a less formal setting and Ryan drives to Egret Pointe to spend some time at Ashley's home. He is blown away and can appreciate the decor of her home and that it just increases the attraction between the two. When they finally agree to marry they do so as a business transaction with benefits and Ryan definitely has benefits. It has disaster written all over it as you see the two agreeing to having sex but making it just that. Ashley lets Ryan know early on in their marriage that shes not cut out for being just in it for sex.

Then there are Ryan's parasite sisters. I like this book its different and fun. Ryan is man worth reading about and Ashley is a woman I think would be easily envied. If nothing else, her house and hometown is reason enough now you add Ryan to the mix. Lets just say she didn't need the channel after she got Ryan he was her every fantasy.

wonderful women's erotica 17 July 2007
By Jennifer Adamson - Published on
Format: Paperback
What a wonderful book!!! You may need to read the first two books Bertrice Small has written to understand "The Channal". This is a great series with lots of explicit encounters. Great bedtime reading!!!

Much better than the last one 21 July 2007
By Eugenie - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was A LOT better than 'Forbidden Plessures' (terrible book). I think it's the best book in the 'Pleasures' series. I'm not sure how I really feel about the series. When I read these books I always feel like there is something missing. I did like Ashley and Ryan but their romance is forgettable. This book was good for a quick read but the love story is not one I'm going to remember.

Very good. Start to finish. Ashley is an example of a woman who can get it right. Racy and funny with a story line. I'm in love the Ryan. His sisters are a piece of work. Way to go girl.
