From the Author

Author Interview with Roxy Sloane:

Is Jackson Ford just another alpha billionaire, or is Explicit different somehow?

I like Alphas and I like billionaires in love, and Jackson Ford is of course an alpha and very rich, but I also wanted to write an office romance with a lot of tension. I wanted to explore the enemies to lovers story line, with a ton of hate sex and then some super hot make-up sex. I think the fun of contemporary romance novels is in mixing an arrogant playboy with an everyday work environment. Ellie is obsessed with him, but it is both personal and professional. 

Are you more like Jackson Ford or Ellie Parker?

Of course I'm both and I'm neither. I'd like to write a New York Times Best Seller like Jackson, but I write contemporary romance kindle books, not thrillers. Of course, I relate to him as a writer and I understand the pressure of trying to turn out great work. While I try to produce the best contemporary romance kindle books, I'm not as confident or arrogant as Jackson. I think my personality has lots of Ellie in it too, but I'm married so I don't have the 'obsession romance' that she does. Plus I don't think I could keep my cool as well as she does, although I'd certainly try.

You're known for your contemporary romance and sex series like The Seduction and The Submission, why a stand alone contemporary romance novel this time?

I love reading and writing contemporary romance series, but it's a commitment (for both readers and writers).  With so many contemporary romance kindle books and kindle unlimited books to choose from, I wanted people to be able to sample my writing without feeling like they had to commit to a whole contemporary romance series. And I also wanted to try the challenge of a different form.

I don't even know where to start with this review. My feelings are all over the place. Let's start with how much I LOVED THIS FREAKING BOOK!!!! Everything. Every. Darn. Thing. Roxy Sloane knocked this one off the map!! Hands down. Her best book yet. I was completely sucked in right from the beginning. The storyline. The characters. The sexy, hot, steamy, eroticism, sensualism, dirty talking all alpha Jackson Ford. Good god that man did things to me. I just want to shout from the rooftops for EVERYONE TO READ THIS BOOK!!!!
So the story is what completely held my attention. Besides all the sexy times, there was an amazing story!!! Ellie Parker. She's everything I love in a character. Strong. Confident. Independent. And can hold her own. She's an editor. And recently acquired Jackson Ford as her new client/author. He happens to be a HUGE DEAL in the book world. And is also known to be difficult to work with. Which we learn firsthand while reading. But Ellie is the perfect match for him. And eventually they learn to work with each other.
Jackson says what he wants. And does what he wants. From that first email exchange between them, I knew I was going to love him. But I also hated him. Briefly. Because Jesus Christ on a holy cracker, he made me yell out loud. And I never do that. I don't do spoilers, but you will know what I'm talking about when you get to that moment. But Ellie doesn't shrivel away. Again, her confidence shines through. She's one bada** lady!! Because I would of had to leave the country lol!!! With everything that she has gone through, will she be strong enough to handle Jackson. To not just be his partner at work, but at life??? You will have to read to find out!!! No spoilers here!!!
What I love in books, are great supporting characters.

This wasn't an easy one for me to finish. Jackson is a famous best selling writer and Ellie is his new editor. Sparks fly between them immediately. He is temperamental and alpha. She is supposedly a strong woman, works as an editor, takes care of her mom with Alzheimer's, and is sexually aware. Very sexually aware. Yet, she puts up with way too much from Jackson. I'm not going to spoil the book, but he gets upset without talking to her and does something that should be totally unforgivable. The story is written well, but it's hard to like or recommend a book when the main love interest is a moody, borderline abusive jerk.

I am not new to Roxy Sloane's books, as I have been reading her for over a year now. I can tell you however, in the past year that I have been reading her books I am blown away even more and more with every release! Explicit was no exception!

In Explicit we meet Jackson and Ellie. She has just been assigned as editor to the ever so famous and very attractive and sucessful author Jackson. The two have a rocky start, full of so much sexual tension and very suggestive, very Explicit dialogue that their beginning just blew me away! He is a very guarded and strong personality and pushes her from day one to be honest and open with him. Ellie wants to be open with him, but at the same time keep their working relationship professional and not jeapordize her career. She is taking care of her sick mother and can't afford to blow her working relationship with Jackson or her firm.

What neither of them could have ever predicted is what precisely happens when her boss sends her to check in with Jackson on the most recen pages for his latest novel. Can the two find a way to work together, despite all the sexual tension between each other? Or will getting snowed in be the tipping point for their relationship.

This book was so well written and had me pulled in from the first page. Roxy captures you with the immediate attraction between the two, but develops it even further through their pasts. Each has a story to tell and these two work so well together both physically and emotionally. It is so full of passion and emotion, Explicit will draw you in from the first page as well. I'm so glad this was a full length novel I got to read it all at once. Now I can only dream of a sequel too it so I get more Jackson/Ellie

It was an interesting read and the characters were fleshed out well. The optimistic ingenue editor and the life hardened, gruff writer embarking on a professional journey that turns deeply personal. It's heartfelt and erotic, at times a bit coarse and inelegant... much like life and relationship off the page. I was present with the characters and didn't know if a HEA was likely given the personalities and lives of Ellie and Jackson but as I "got to know them" I hoped for the best. When it's all said and done I'm still not sure of what I ended up with here. I know I'm in the minority with a two-star review, which is fine, because for me, I just couldn't get past the betrayal. I won't spoil this for anyone, but how there's any room for forgiveness is beyond me. I'm still mad about the pain, humiliation, and degradation and it didn't even happen to me! Maybe that says more about me than it does the characters but I expect the type of behavior in the book from a YA novel, not one featuring supposed adults. I could see it was headed in the direction it went, but I can't find a way back from the level it got to. There wasn't enough to warrant a second chance and no reason to find anything redeeming about the betrayer. I would have believed it had they stayed apart. At least then there would have been a moral. But the easy forgiveness doesn't mesh well with the character as written early on and "I'm sorry, I love you" seems too little too late.
