Take one workaholic woman. Mix with letter to self, detailing fantasies about wild, unbridled sex. Add one dangerously seductive man—and indulge in the delicious, sensual results!

When Violet Summerlin receives her old letter, she's intrigued—but too busy to worry about it. It's taking all she's got to battle her lust for her sexy client Dominick Burns.

Then Dominick invites her to Miami for a working holiday. And Violet knows she won't be able to withstand his sensual attack for long.

She doesn't.

The man seems to know just how to please her. Every slow stroke, every breath-stealing adventure takes her to new heights of sexual ecstasy. But mixing business and pleasure can be a dicey combination. Especially when Violet discovers Dominick's been hiding something from her…

Mix one extreme sports athlete and one self-assured concierge. Add a spicy letter to self for flavor and send on a weekend trip to Miami. What have you got? No Peeking by Stephanie Bond.

I love Ms. Bond’s quirky, yet intelligent characters. They draw you into the story and only let gone once they’ve said their piece. Very well written and funny.
Violet Summerlin works as a personal shopper, fact checker and all around go-to person for uber-hunk Dominick Burns. The extreme sports athlete wants a woman who’ll spark his desire and keep him in line. When he accidentally gets the very personal letter Violet wrote to herself in college, he decides he’s the man to fulfill her every naughty desire.

I liked that the characters were relatable. You could see them as people you knew and pal around with. My favorite character was the Pekinese guard dog, Winslow. He reminded me of my own animal and the bond between human and animal. Very touching.

Even when the story ended, I wasn’t ready to part with the characters. I only wished Violet would’ve gotten past her fears and nabbed Dominick on her terms, but still the way the story worked itself out was great.

If you want a sexy read with steamy love scenes and passionate characters, then grab a copy of No Peeking. You’ll love it. I give this book 4 ½ books.
