Review – Dirty Tricks

She wanted revenge. He wanted her.

Cat was desperate, but pretending to be a ghost to stop the
renovation on the neighbouring manor house was a new low even for her. All she
needed to do, though, was slow down the renovation and figure out a way to make
the owner pay for stealing her family home years before. Simple.

Everything was perfect until a new guy arrived on site,
turning her plans for revenge upside down, and her body to a puddle of lusty
mush. But when she finds out the secret he’s been keeping, will their
attraction be strong enough to hold them together? Or will family ties tear
them apart?

Warning: this story contains a large, orange cat called Elvis, a fake ghost called Cat, a sizzling hot romance, and it just may cause you to crack a smile.

Allyson’s Review
Dirty Tricks was a Fun read. Cat’s family manor was sold years ago to a vulture, breaking her grandmother’s heart. She felt her grandmother was treated wrongly and swears to get revenge. What better way to do that, than when the manor was being renovated, making everybody think it was haunted. Cat was funny, caring, and kind with a quick temper.
She didn’t expect Jay to come head the project. Jay was fun, smart, sexy, hardworking, strong, protective, loyal. The sparks between them were incredibly strong. Only problem was they were both hiding things. This was great touching read, that I highly recommend.

Interview ~ Abi Aiken ~ His Go-To Girl

Beverly and Tamara: Abi, welcome to SSLY. Thanks so much for joining us today. So first why don’t you tell us a little about yourself?

Hi there! I’m Abi Aiken. I live in Brisbane, the capital city of Queensland. That’s in Australia, by the way! I write sweet and funny romantic erotica and I’m loving the journey so far. I love the beach far more than I should with my pale skin, and I’m a sucker for spicy food!

Tamara: What do you HAVE to have when you are writing?

Coffee and solitude. I love people, but that’s the trouble. If I have anyone around me I usually stop writing and start talking! And coffee needs no explanation! LOL!

Beverly: When did you start to write, who influenced you?

I’ve only recently taken the plunge into what might loosely be called professional writing. So I guess in the last few years it’s been people like Tobsha Learner, Krissy Kneen and Linda Jaivin who’ve influenced me the most. They’re all at least partly Australian (Tobsha seems to be much more a citizen of the world!) and while they write in different styles, they have such strong voices and use super-creative ways to arouse.

Tamara: Who would you choose as your “book boyfriend/girlfriend”? From what book? Author?

Can I cheat a bit and choose one of each? I only recently read Grave Sight by Charlaine Harris and I fell for both Harper Connelly and her step-brother, Tolliver Lang. If I could have them both, please? One at a time, of course. I don’t want to make them feel weird or anything! You can organise that, right?

Beverly: 😉 Oh sure! Let me get right on that! What is the kinkiest thing you’ve ever done? Or would like to? What? We are all about the love!

Kinkiest thing ever done? Well, I’m interested in far more things than I’ve actually tried! But a quickie in a single bed while another couple was in the room would probably count! As for what I’d like to do, well…If I could have Jensen Ackles and Jennifer Lawrence wrestling over the right to make love to me I’d be well set! And of course, as the referee I would reluctantly have to call it a draw and let them share the spoils! I’m sure they’ll each have plenty of boo-boos for me to kiss better!

Tamara: LOL! I’m sure! What dream or goals have you yet to realize?

Travel to the USA! That would be the real biggie. I’ve been a few places but never the US. So many exciting cities and such amazing natural wonders.

Beverly: What is your “guilty pleasure”?

I have such a sweet tooth, and anything caramel will tie me up and force me to devour it!

Beverly: MMM, caramel coffee, caramel sundaes, oh I totally agree! What was your most embarrassing moment or the craziest thing you’ve done? C’mon dish!

I let somebody talk me into taking a parachute jump from 10,000 feet! It was a few years ago now but I can still feel the rush. So awesome, and exhilarating, and I shall never do it again!

Tamara: LOL! If you were a color what would you be and why?

I’d be burnt orange. I’ve always loved the orange shades for their brightness (and for the absurdly fresh sweetness of the fruit itself). Burnt orange has all that but has a dark tang about it as well. It’s both sexier and more earthy.

Beverly: Good Lord! Now I have the craving to peel and slowly eat…er…sorry…How do you know you’re in love?

When I’ll put aside anything—even writing!—to spend time doing nothing with them…that’s being in love, to me.

Tamara and Beverly: Okay. We are SSLY so we have to ask. Who loves you?

At the moment, my mum and my dog!

Now for some quick fun questions:
Boxers or briefs? Briefs.
Tall, dark and handsome or Blond and buff? Oh, definitely tall, dark and handsome. (And maybe a little touch of grey at the temples. I do like my men a little seasoned!)
Hairy chest or smooth? Hairy (but not TOO hairy!)
Chocolate or Vanilla? Vanilla!
Kinky or Sweet? There’s a difference? 😉 Then I’ll take sweet!
Fast or slow? Slooooooow……….
Public or private? Ooh…oh, if I absolutely HAVE to choose, then private.
Top or bottom? Oh, you make it so hard to choose! I guess top. We’re talking about bunk beds, right? 😉

Well, fellow coffee addict *Tamara pours more* Let’s hear about His Go-To Girl!
