Seduce Me
Austin Singles #1
By Kelly Elliott
Releasing November 6th, 2018

What happens when you’re forced to seduce the one person you vowed never to love? 

You get screwed … in more than one way. 

I walked out of Tucker Middleton’s bedroom seven years ago, leaving him hurt and angry. Now I need his help; the only way I can get it, is to make him think I want him back. 

The only problem is we have silently vowed to hate one another for the rest of our lives. In order to get Tucker to help me—I have to seduce him

Easy right? 

Hell yes! I’m the CEO of CMI Consulting. If I set my mind to something, I make it happen. Charleston Monroe is playing me for a fool. If she believes for one second I’m going to let her walk into my life to help her save the very job that ripped her away from me, she’s got another thing coming. 

She thinks she can seduce me, and I let her believe she can. After all, I’m getting what I’ve always wanted.

In Seduce Me (Austin Singles #1) by Kelly Elliott, Charleston 'Charlie' Monroe needs to marry if she's to be CEO of her family's company, otherwise the position will go to someone else. So, she decides to seduce Tucker Middleton, the man she hasn't been able to get out of her head for the past seven years. Yet, the more time they spend together, the more Charlie wants their relationship to be more than a game of seduction. But when she discovers that Tucker mightn't be as invested in their relationship as she is and that he could be looking for revenge because of what happened between them in the past, will she walk away from Tucker for good or will she fight for their second chance at happy ever after?

What a highly entertaining, fast-paced, emotionally-animating read Ms. Elliott has delivered in this first book of her Austin Singles series where every obstacle this couple faced to be together kept surprising me and had me reading quickly, determined to discover whether they'd get their happy ever after; and the dialogue was compelling because the hero and heroine are constantly at odds. Yet, the moments when they're getting along are delightful and had me smiling because Tucker can be quite charming when he wants to be. 

The way this story started had me immediately hooked, as the heroine comes off a little mean, but she doesn't mean to be. She's trying to make her dad proud and she doesn't have time for distractions. Yet, Tucker is the man she'd want if she had time for men. However, it was from the moment the hero and heroine come face-to-face again years later where this story really takes off because Tucker is still bitter after the way things went down between them in the past. Will he be able to push past his bitterness to convince Charlie to take a chance on him?

As for the dialogue, it was intense due to the main characters back stories and the obstacles these two face together, which just kept getting more and more interesting and had thinking will-they-or-won't-they get their happy ever after, as each obstacle became more and more impossible to overcome, especially since emotions run high and loyalty and trust are put to the test when tragedy strikes. Moreover, the main characters are incredible and very interesting and I loved their growing relationship. Charlie and Tucker don't make things easy for each other because it's hard for Tucker to forgive what Charlie did in the past.

With the main characters, the heroine is resilient, courageous, a total ball-buster when she wants to be and finds it hard to show emotion, so I loved the moments when she broke down because she needed those moments to grieve for everything she's lost. Yet, I couldn't help but feel sorry for her when it comes to her friends. How could they be so harsh when it seems she's not the one at fault when things go awry in this couple's growing relationship? While the hero, he's confident, cocky, hard-working and I liked that he was willing to give the heroine another chance, even though it seems that Tucker might be using her just as much as the heroine is determined to seduce him. Is he looking for revenge because of the past? Furthermore, I couldn't help but be affected by things that happen in the hero's life that send him into a tailspin. The guilt he feels over what transpired had me sympathizing with the hero. How is he supposed to move forward after everything that happens?

Overall, Ms. Elliott has delivered a superb and well-written tale in this book where emotions run high; the chemistry between this couple was off the charts; the romance was heavy and hot and full of passion; and the ending had me liking the heroine's determination to prove to the hero that nothing can tear them apart. Besides, what she does shows how much she trusts him. Yet, it was the final chapter that wrapped this story up perfectly, because of how far Tucker and Charlie have come in their relationship and the fact that they have so much to look forward to for their future. I would recommend Seduce Me by Kelly Elliott, if you enjoy the enemy to lovers trope, second chance romances or books by authors Corinne Michaels, Adriana Locke, Kristy Bromberg and Vi Keeland.


Rolling over, I pulled the covers over my head and moaned. 

“Oh shit,” I whispered. Even my whispered words hurt my head. I hadn’t drunk like that in a long time. Note to self: Give up alcohol. Except wine. Wait. No. Never ever give up wine. With my head still buried, I tried to think back to last night. The last thing I remembered was talking to that guy . . . Brad. No Billy. Bobby? Brady? Who cares? I need aspirin. I pushed the covers over my head and went to get out of bed. I froze when I saw the sheets. Oh. My. God. These aren’t my sheets. Turning, I looked at the bed. This isn’t my bed. Glancing down, I gasped. I’m not wearing any clothes. 

Covering my mouth, I jumped up. “I didn’t. Oh God, please tell me I didn’t. Terri! I’m going to kill her.” Frantically looking around, I saw my purse on the chair in the corner. Rushing over to it, I dug through it until I found my phone. 

As I waited for that whore to answer her phone, I mumbled, “She broke the number one girlfriend code. Don’t let your friend leave with a guy when they’re drunk!” 

“Hey, girl! So? Did you get laid like you wanted? Please tell me yes ’cause this would make a great story.” 

My heart jumped to my throat as a small sound came from my lips. “Wh-what? Why? How could you? You let me go off with him? What if he had killed me!”

She laughed. “Hardly. But then again, you do drive him up a wall, and he has mentioned snuffing you out a time or two.” 

My finger and thumb went to the bridge of my nose. “What are you talking about?” 

Terri muffled the phone, then laughed. “Hello? Terri! I’m at a strange man’s house, I don’t remember anything, and I’m naked.” 

“Wait. You’re naked?” 


“Oh, wow. Shit just got really interesting. Where’s Tucker?” 

Tucker? How in the hell would I know where Tucker was? “I don’t know! I don’t care. Terri. I don’t know where I am. He could come back any minute, and I’m standing here naked. Oh my God. Do you think I had sex with him?” 

“Do you feel like you had sex?” 

Stopping, I jumped around a bit. “No. I’d be sore if I did, right? Fuck if I know, it’s been so long.” 

Terri sighed. “It really has been that long. You’ve done forgotten how it feels, huh?” 

“Aww, hell, Mr. Pootie!” 

“I’m sure he’s fine. Let’s get back to what happened between you and Tucker last night.” I shook my head as I glanced around the room for my clothes. 

Dropping to my knees, I looked under the bed. “Why are we talking about Tucker? I have bigger problems.” Then I heard a male voice clear his throat. “Oh God,” I whispered. “He’s in the room, Terri. I’m naked! I can’t find my clothes.” 

Terri laughed. “Okay, well, have fun. Tell Tucker I said hey.” 

My brows furrowed, and I was about to say something when the line went dead. It was then I felt the change in the room, and everything from last night came crashing back into my poor brain, causing my head to pound harder. Slowly lifting up, I peered over the bed, only to find Tucker leaning up against the doorjamb. He wore a shit-eating grin on his face, and fuck me, he looked so gorgeous. Oh no. I swallowed hard. “Um . . . I can’t, um. Well, it appears I am . . . you see, I can’t find my, ahh . . . the dress I had on.” Jesus. Why do I act like an idiot around him? Why! 

“Your clothes had throw up on them. They’re almost dry.” 

My stomach dropped. “Did we . . . ?” H

e smiled. Full on dimples and all. God, I want him. Even in my current hungover condition, I’ve never wanted this man more than right now. Wait. No. I don’t! Yes . . . yes, you do. Crap. What if I already had him? And I don’t remember. I’m going to be so pissed off if we had sex and I don’t remember it. “No, we didn’t sleep together, and for the record, you got yourself undressed.” 

Relaxing, I let out the breath I didn’t realize I held in.
