The story is told with a lightness of touch that make it impossible not to engage with both the characters and the life that they are sharing with you.
Once you pick the book up I have to say that you will be hard pressed to put it down.
Lily is on the right side of getting out of a positively crappy relationship, she is beginning to piece her life together but the pain of the past is not quite ready to let her go and it continues to influence the future she is trying to build. Given the chance to show that she has what it takes to be more than just the assistant to the Chief Editor – she is given a shot at pitching the company to the inimitable Jonas Crane, because landing him is her ticket to moving up the corporate ladder.
While this may be all good in theory, her nerves take hold when she is face to face with this formidable man and she quickly learns that she has a lot to learn when dealing with the likes of Jonas Crane. Barely able to string two words together she is hardly likely to be able to convince him of anything let alone that he needs to sign with her publishing house.
But it is not the lack of conversational finesse that has Jonas intrigued by Lily, because during their interactions he quickly understand that this woman is something special. He isn’t too bad either! Filthy rich and devastatingly handsome, Jonas is recently single and permanently busy – his business keeps him on his toes but his teenage son keeps him in the air, spending hours flying across the country between his home and his son who lives in New York in his desperation to maintain their relationship.
There is no doubt that there is a meeting of minds between the two of them but they have a connection that is deeper than that, Jonas cottons on that Lily is not like many of the other sycophants that surrounded him, she seems happy to enjoy his company and as they chatted it was obvious that they had many things in common, things that may have appeared mundane but when you are surrounded by people that care more for your bank balance than you as a person it must have been refreshing for Jonas to feel that it was him- the man that mattered for once.
Can they find a way to form a friendship that given the right opportunities may develop into something more substantial – is that even what they want? Jonas is certain that he needs nothing more than her friendship at this time, he feels that he couldn’t possibly enter into another relationship after what he has been through and by the same tone neither can Lily, the trauma of her past is still fresh in her memory.
As they take what I can only describe as tentative steps towards being together, they have the weight of the past against them, Lily struggles with past pains, the loss of her parents and she is still the focus of attention from someone who just refuses to let go, that may not be everything she has to deal with because Jonas seems to keep much of his life fairly well guarded and is reluctant to completely let her in.
While this is only part one of their story I have to say that I found it a completely encompassing story. They gathered me up and kept me close as their story unfolded. My heart broke for Lily towards the end of the book, she had already been through so much and her pain was still apparent, I wanted so much for the two of them and I longed for Lily to revel in Jonas’s touch and to allow him to show her what it was like to be truly adored.
I am looking forward to the next part of their journey and congratulate the author on a delightfully, sensual and positively romantic tale.

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
I loved Amélie's Debut book Little wolf, and was pleased to review this one. I really enjoyed it once again, the same perfect blend of sex and story with neither dominating the other.
Lily has had such a lot happen in such a short while, and the most recent being her fiancé dumping her after she moved across country to be with him. He’s a jerk, as we see later in the book, an abusive jerk at that. Lily is strong though – at least she tries hard to be knowing that's what her parents would want. The Salome name was everything to her dad, and he seems to have had a motto including it for every eventuality! She’s finally found a job she loves after she finished her degree, and her boss asks her to do something to help the business one evening. She respects Gregor greatly and he’s been good to her, so she thinks that maybe this will help her get a promotion, and it will certainly help the business if she can pull it off. Its simply meeting with Jonas to push their firm for his book. Of course they wouldn’t normally be in the running for something like this, so the meeting isn’t quite as business kosher as it seems, more that Gregor just happens to know where Jonas will be that night, and wants Lily to talk to him – have a sort of off the cuff “accidental” meeting.
Poor Lily is a klutz... I know how she feels only too well, and while she’s mulling the best way to approach Jonas to make it look natural she drops her bag, which skims over the floor to land at Jonas feet! From then on they talk and ....before long they are in a most strange relationship. well strange for Lily, not for Jonas.
Jonas is divorced, but gets on well with his ex and sees his teenage son frequently. He’s as the description says, Dark, Dangerous and Delicious, and the tension between him and Lily is palpable. He’s not interested in another long term or permanent relationship though – his divorce has left him feeling that simply sexual companions is the most he can do. Poor Lily thinks she can do that – but she’s much too gentle of heart. They are at opposite ends of the sexual spectrum, she’s naive and gentle, looking for love, he’s been there done that and just wants a friend to accompany him and stop him feeling lonely, and to be available for some hot and steamy sex whenever he wants. When she agrees to his request they have some incredible sexual encounters, and are soon in an intense and erotic sort of liaison. It is good to have once again the sex scenes well written and varied, they feel erotic and sensual and not just “more dull sex” as we get too often. That’s one of the things I enjoyed in “"Little Wolf.
As always just when things look good the cracks appear, secrets from the past creep out, Lily starts to get emotionally involved, her outside life and the one with Jonas overlap, and his need to control everything causes tensions and lies. Suddenly everything has hit at once, Jonas and Gregor’s shared past, Lily’s past with her fiancé and reminders of her parents death, and it seems like it’s all over. I like all the people here, they feel very real, and the ex being kind for a change was refreshing. Lily needs a friend, and she could be just that the way things are going.
Stars: Five, cracking read, and I can’t wait for part two. I’m not sure if this is in two or three parts but hopefully it won’t be long til the next. .

Edit: I've asked Amelie, and this is in three parts with part two hopefully out by end of March.
