BOOK 1 Synopsis:
I step on the dark stage, the cheap plastic of my platforms cutting into the top of my toes, every step bringing a pinch of pain. I keep my eyes down, following the flecks of silver on the unforgiving stage, waiting, exhaling a breath in controlled anticipation, my abs tightening. Then, the lights come on and I have almost three minutes to forget.
Welcome to my life, a drained bank account and six nights a week spinning around a greasy strip club pole. When salvation comes in the form of six feet of drop-dead-gorgeous, complete with a limo and a thick wad of cash, my stilettos run happily out the door to freedom. They say that money doesn’t buy happiness. But it does buy escape. Happiness is an overrated fairytale.
To Have (Dumont Diaries Book 1) EXCERPT:
He leans forward and kisses me, and I suddenly don’t need the image of dollar bills to distract my mind. Everything floods the moment his lips touch mine.
Soft, sweet lips. Not what I expect from this commanding man. He brushes my lips softly, my lips parting for him, immediately wanting more. A groan slips from my mouth before I have a chance to capture it. His hands move up through my hair, gripping and pulling its strands. He tastes me, spreading my lips gently with his and dipping his tongue inside. I respond eagerly, my body taking over my mind, shoving it aside forcefully as a wave of arousal hits me. His touch turns harder, his mouth more demanding and he moves me backward, my heels skittering over tile, 'til the edge of the table is against me.
His hands grip my ass, squeezing it roughly, one hand on each cheek and lifts me easily, setting me on the table, the surface cool against my skin.
“Lay down,” he bites out against my mouth, taking one, last, torturous sweep with his tongue before he pulls off, stepping back and watching me.
I grip the glass top, sliding backward until my elbows are resting on the glass. I watch him, watch as he unbuttons his sleeves. He breathes hard, his eyes glued to mine and walks towards me, stopping a foot from the table.

My Review of the complete series:
Love these books! SO glad I was given the chance to read all 4 at once. You all mostly on the other hand will be left with a nice CF with this one. And the next. And the one after that. But it is all good, no matter what little bit you get to read, even if its a chapter at a time, its a well worth the wait read.
I read this start to finish in about an hour. I could not put it down. For a mini-series it sure packs a huge punch. A real treat with twists I never saw coming.
Our lovers for this journey are Candace and Mr.Dumont. Or Dear Nathan as we come to know him. Theirs is a story that rips at your and throws you in some major tizzies through the course of reading, but in the ned its all worth the outcome you find. As another reviews so wonderfully put there are some parts of the story that you are on your seat hoping that the story goes one way, when its already going another, but in the end Alessandra knows exactly what needs to happen and hands it to use. Little. By. Little. Its wonderful torture but its one of those reads you wont soon forget.
The characters were wonderful and truly multidimensional. You got to know the different sides of them and I can say with all honesty they are fantastically written. Candy is so diverse and entertaining, I couldn't get enough of her. She's sarcastic and sticks to who she is, even when she can't be. She goes with the flow and its entertaining. Her reactions to different situations were interesting and real.
Nathan. *Swoon* I really enjoyed him as a character and getting to get the small glimpses into who he really is. It was a journey to get to know him, but totally worth the wait. I Loathed him, I Loved him, I wanted to strangle him. You know the drill.
Its a quick read that hooks you quite literally on the first page. 1 click is up guys, you wont regret this read in the least.
