Summary

She crashed his party and became his prize…

According to one annoying Drex Callum, Chris is a “nosy reporter.” And maybe she is. She’s heard of the super secretive event known as the Seduction Party, and she won’t be content until she finds a way in. The last thing she expects to find is that Drex is the host. She’ll never get an invitation from her nemesis—unless she finds a way to get one herself. And breaking into his house is nothing if it means getting the scoop. But what she gets instead is an eye-full of the man himself, half-naked and more than she’d ever dreamed he could be in all her teenage fantasies.

Drex has been fantasizing about Chris forever, and now that she’s a grown woman, he still has a hard time treating her like one. So when she shows up at the Seduction Party—on the auction chair!—he’s got no other choice but to teach that nosey woman a lesson. He never dreamed sex could be like this, with Chris in his room, tied to a bed, asking him for stuff that blows his mind…

But when things turn ugly, it becomes clear that someone wants the nosey reporter dead. And Drex will have his hands full trying to keep his prize safe… 

~Short Review~

At A Glance
This is a fun, sexy, short read. It’s not the best ever written or paced, but it did it’s job: being sexy and naughty.

The Good
I think many of you know I like to change it up sometimes. So when I saw this book, I knew it was going to be a simple erotic read. I don’t read erotica often, but it’s a nice change of pace sometimes.

Party Crasher had lovable characters and a little bit of suspense. I really liked how Christine and Drex had known each other for years and only just started to admit their true feelings…and desires. For such a short amount of time, I came to admire Drex because he was an alpha but in a soft soft of way. He’s not overbearing at all. And Christine is strong and independent but with a bit of a submissive attitude to keep things interesting in bed. I even loved the side characters and would be happy to see them have their own story.

The plot was simple but exciting I loved how there was just enough action every so often to keep things from getting stagnant with just sex. And speaking of the sex, it was H. O. T. April does not hold back during the sex scenes.

The Bad
The plot and storyline were predictable. And, as I usually feel with novellas, this story would have been better as a full length novel. The pacing was too fast sometimes to fully enjoy.

The Snuggly
As I said, this is a very sexual book. Expect rough language and blush worthy sex scenes. Despite the erotica genre, the couple actually had a real connection that I quite enjoyed watching grow.

Final Thoughts
Party Crasher wasn’t perfect by a long shot, but it has all the right elements for a really good erotica. If you are looking for a quick, naughty read, Party Crasher will not disappoint. Recommended to erotica readers.

Quotes
I’m going to f*** you for all the times I’ve wanted to but didn’t. F*** you until I am the only man your body recognizes.”

She moaned as his words turned into images of their twined bodies in her head.

He licked the shell of her ear, twirling his wicked tongue in circles. “Do you want me to? Want me to f*** you until you can’t see straight.
