5.0 out of 5 stars Quick, Sexy Read!! August 28, 2012
By Ren
This book was given to me by the publisher for an honest review and was not purchased through Amazon.

Megan is an assistant at a finance firm. She goes out to one of her local hang outs with her friend and sees the CEO of her company there. He happens to be with a mob boss and Megan wonders if the rumors about him being mob-connected are true. She heads out, hoping that her boss doesn't spot her. Megan works late one evening and gets a call from the CEO, Christopher. He tells her to see him in her office and he accuses her of leaking a story to the press about his mob connection. Of course, Megan had nothing to do with "said story" and she tells that to Christopher. One thing leads to another and they have a steamy, passionate romp right there in his office.

Megan was telling the truth when she said she didn't leak the story about his mob connections, but that didn't stop her from doing some digging to write a new piece on the allegations. While working on the piece, she gets a text from Christopher. He comes by her apartment and they have another hot sex session. After Christopher leaves, she realizes that he saw her article on him and he deleted the entire content.

I wont go any further considering it is a short story.

I was really excited when I was contacted to review this story. I'm a huge fan of Cosmopolitan magazine and my favorite part is the stories in the back of the magazine. I read the first few chapters of this one a few months ago, but my TBR list is massive and I simply forgot to follow up on it. I have never read Fifty Shades of Grey, but I can see where there would be some similarities. Christopher is very dominant when it comes to the sex scenes in the book. He tells Megan how he wants it, and it's frickin' hot!

Good story if all you want to do is sit back and have some "me time". The plot is highly predictable and the characters are kind of bland and un-exciting very similar to the bad acting in porn. Great detail in the sex scenes but the detail stops there.

There was no real point to this story, no life shattering moments, and no final moment that makes you feel that you didn't waste your time reading this.

This book had no story line. Cosmo makes you think it was longer then a few pages and for the price so did I. One of the worst books I read. In the magazine they gave you the story except for basically the last page. Horrible!

2.0 out of 5 stars Needs Work September 15, 2012
This serialized story from Cosmopolitan is hot. Right off the bat Jessica Knoll didn't mince words and scenes and had her couple defiling office desks. Christopher Reiss, CEO of J.S. Taylor, is very reminiscent of Christian Grey and Gideon Cross. Domineering, straightforward and shameless when it comes to sex, this sexy businessman is caught in mob business that sets a conflict of interest with his lover and ex-assistant Megan Altman. An aspiring journalist whose job assignment is to expose Christopher's link to the mob and other criminal activities done by mob boss, Martin Gradiano, under the legit business banner of J.S. Taylor.

Personally I am growing weary of these stories that are obviously inspired by Fifty Shades, surely there are other types of Alpha males people can write about right? In any case, this is more of a sampler, the writing is steadfast and JKnoll can write explosive love scenes. At five chapters I was left wanting as far as this mob business is concerned as the story is not yet complete. I want to know if Christopher and Megan can get away with their planned expose and what lengths Gradiano will go through to silence them. I'd hope that JKnoll develops this mystery-crime angle with the same earnestness she exhibits in writing Megan and Christophers toe-curling scenes.

I think they shouldn't have released this "book" yet because it is so incomplete and definitely lacking in several parts. It's not an open ending but more like a gaping hole, the story was cut midway nothing was resolved. At least in short stories or novella series, a minor conflict is resolved but here everything is hanging loose like fringe. Cosmopolitan should let JKnoll finish the story first before publishing this and selling it as a novella.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cosmo's Fifty-One Shades of Blonde September 15, 2012
Cosmo's Fifty-One Shades of Blonde is a very short story coming in at around 30 pages and spilt into five chapters, I believe part of the story was originally published in the magazine and has now been released as an ebook with additional added material. Obviously the title of the story gives away the fact that this is going to have similarities to the incredibly popular Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy and I couldn't resist giving it a try. I was hoping for a short but hot read with a sexy alpha male and to some extent that is what I got but unfortunately I found myself feeling disappointed. The story is short and hot but I didn't find myself attracted to Christopher and I couldn't understand what he and Megan saw in each other.

I love a good smut scene and I have to admit that the sex in this story was quite well written but I like a bit of a plot to go along with my erotica. In this case the characters were completely one dimensional, they hardly say more than two words to each other before they're at it like rabbits, in fact from the little they do say it's quite obvious they neither trust or particularly like each other. The plot (if you can even call it that) of the young office assistant with dreams of being a journalist just happening upon her super rich boss as he has a secret meeting with a high profile mob member (in a public restaurant of all places - because that's where all famous people arrange their top secret meetings that could end their career if they are discovered!) was just beyond ridiculous.

Cosmo's Fifty-One Shades of Blonde is obviously taking the mickey out of the series it is using to attract it's readers and unfortunately I'd have to say my advice would be to spend your money elsewhere.

The only positive thing I can say about this book is that it was a quick read. A mindless, plot-less, boring, quick read.
