ARC for Review 

Book Two in The Austin Series, which combines erotica, romance and humour.

Their scorching sexual chemistry brought them together, but will their combined emotional baggage tear them apart?

The charismatic and gorgeous Gabe Austin had finally broken down some of Mia Page’s walls. His charms and sexual prowess coaxed her from sex no strings, to a committed relationship, but a misunderstanding threatened everything he had worked for.

Gabe’s determined to make Mia forgive him, his ultimate goal, to possess not just her body, but her heart.

Despite their incredible sex life, Gabe’s domineering and controlling personality really pushes Mia’s buttons, while she infuriates him with her stubborn and defensive nature. Their two personalities combined create fireworks.

To complicate matters further, Mia has to face up to her deteriorating health, while best friend Lexi also has a tough choice to make. Their decisions will not only affect their lives, but could affect those of the people who care about them.

The Austin Series is six books in total, and is designed to be read in the following sequence:

New Leaves, No Strings
Baggage & Buttons
Forever & an Engine
The Honeymoon Period
Love & Loss
Infinite Love

These Two Know How To Steam It UP! 

Baggage & Buttons was the steamiest book yet!! Not only is it hot, its full of passion and love as well. I’m actually still trying to pull myself together. Definitely hawt hawt I fell in love with Gabe and Mia in the first book and the love keeps on rolling. This is not your aunt Martha’s erotica this is eyes popping out of skulls and people fainting and having heart attacks. In this installment these two lovers have some obstacles to overcome I’m happy to report that they seem to be made for each other. Yummy yummy warning!

I love this series! I really enjoy Fallowfield’s writing the way she incorporates the wit and charm with the steam and passion. I don’t think I’ve ever read a book quite so detailed that I’m 100% drawn to. All other erotica books should pick up some pointers from this series.

I am a very young hearted 44 year old female from the United Kingdom. I enjoyed writing fictional stories as a child but, like many, long working hours in my career meant that I had little time for anything else. Finding myself in the fortunate position of now being able to work from home part time, I have been able to rekindle this long lost passion for storytelling. Writing aids include chocolate, Ben & Jerrys and copious amounts of coffee, wine or cider.
