    Do you, like me, read contemporary romance novels and wish for more of the raunchy stuff? Well, hold onto your hats ladies and gents, because Ms. Derrick certainly delivers with her debut novel Finding Love's Wings.With a fantastic storyline, a stunning backdrop and lovable characters that are a breath of fresh air- not to mention, highly individual and unique; what more could you want in a romance?So let me tell you about the wonderful main characters...Cami is a fiery pocket rocket who dresses to kill with a unique style all of her own. Long raven hair with electric blue highlights, amazingly detailed tattoos and a set of intriguing surface piercings; combined with a strong alluring personality, she is a knock out on the surface, but a lost and lonely girl on the inside, mourning the death of her estranged father.Tristan is the Hollywood heartthrob we all drool over, with his amazing body, good looks, and a killer tattoo that I would love to see close up! But he too knows the pain of loss and is struggling with the emotions that betrayal brings.Put these two together and you get this little thing called chemistry, baby! Not all authors have the ability to nail it in writing, but Woooooooo! do these two sexy tattooed and pierced individuals have it?! You can all but see the sparks flying off the page! But Finding Loves Wings isn't just about the awesome love scenes, the story itself keeps you reading. It's like you're a fly on the wall of a messy Hollywood "Love Scandal", where you get all the dirty details that the glam mags just speculate on! Score!!!For a debut novel, I believe Ms.Derrick has delivered a fantastic story. If you love a good romance with a very modern feel; lots of juicy tidbits, some drama and a lot of lovin', then definitely give Finding Love's Wings a try.

    Received this book for an honest review.Cameron is a college graduate with a degree in PR and Business but she doesn't know what to do with her life. Her parents shipped her off to England when she was six years old to attend school and she never had a relationship with her parents. Her mother died when she was sixteen and her father died a year ago. When her father died, he had a stipulation in his will that she become CEO of his prestigious PR firm or it be sold off to the lowest bidder with the profits going to charity. To save the company Cami is a "non active" CEO but Trinity and Vincent believe she is more than capable of partaking an active role in running the company. What's holding her back ? Cami is afraid her father has set her up to fail. Her lack of unconditional love in her life has left her vulnerable.Tristan is a handsome successful actor but doesn't like all that comes along with the hype of Hollywood. He never knew his father and his love for his mother is something to be cherished. When she died he felt lost and alone. Like part of him was missing. Struggling on his own in college to make ends meet he auditions for an extra for a movie. After his audition he is asked to study some lines and return the next day. He is given the lead role in a top movie. Hence, he was thrown into a life that he never thought he would have. He begins to date his co-star Layla thinking he was filling the loneliness void that his mother left behind. Five years later, he realizes Layla was using him for own gain.Cami leaves her home in Phoenix to escape the betrayal of her boyfriend after she finds him in bed with another woman. She ends up Ina remote island to think about her life and try to get some perspective as to what direction she needs her life to go.Tristan escapes Los Angeles after discovering Layla has been cheating on him and expects him to help her out of her mess. Tristan believes the only way to help Layla is for her to hit rock bottom and begin to put her life back together....without him.When Cami and Tristan end up at the same remote island sparks fly between them the moment they meet. A whirlwind romance blossoms with no paparazzi or interference from the outside. Will Cami and Tristan be able to put the hurt their last relationships had on them behind them and take a chance on love together ? Will they be ale to handle the pressures and the press that's around them from Tristan's fallout ?Thank you for allowing me to read this book. I look forward to reading more about Cami and Tristan and see their love bloom. This is NOT a cliffhanger but it will continue. The book ends in an appropriate place.

    I have to start off by saying how much I love the cover for this book. It is just so gorgeous and magical. If only the story was everything the cover is, however I was left feeling quite disappointed. The first half of the book was pretty much about Cami and Tristian getting to know each other, but it quickly became monotonous and I found myself becoming easily distracted. I didn’t connect with the characters as much as I would have liked to, but having said that, I must admit that I did like Cami. I loved her feistiness and the fact that she was also vulnerable and a bit broken made her feel real. I tried to like Tristian, and at the beginning I really did, but after a while I found him to be a little irritating. Every time he was with Cami he acted like teenage boy with raging hormones. I mean, it might be flattering to have a guy get so turned on by you that he has no control over certain body parts, but if it happened every single time he was near me I’d wonder what was wrong with him. Things seemed to move along too fast, and by that I mean how lovey dovey and cutesy Tristian and Cami became after one night of flirting on the beach. They were too comfortable with each other and it just didn’t feel right. And then came the showering of gifts that probably was meant to be a kind, from-the-heart-gesture but it felt more like he was trying to buy her, as ridiculous as it sounds given the fact that she had more than enough of her own money. The sexual tension was hot and sensual, but with Tristian constantly uttering the words, “Not here, not now”, it just didn’t heat up the pages enough for me. On the upside, I was fascinated by Cami’s corset piercing. I’d never heard of anything like it before this book and I immediately Googled for pictures. If only I was still young and foolish enough, I would have run out to my nearest parlor to have it done. It looks beautiful.I really wish I had enjoyed this book more.

    I was given a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.First off. I need a cold shower and a stiff drink. Oh and some Tristan please! Gahhh that's a girl's dream come true!This was my kind of romance; two beautifully tattooed and pierced characters coming together. In more ways than one, wink wink. :)Cami has been on her own practically all of her life. Her parents sent her away to another country when she was young. She grew up without any idea of what love is or how to feel it.Tristan is a successful actor who's pictures are plastered in every teen girls bedroom. Though, he lives to act, he hates the publicity that accompanies him wherever he goes. They both need an escape from the drama of their lives and unknowingly find the answers to all of their problems in each other. Oh boy I loved this story and there better be more or I'll cry! Steamy, steamy sex scenes that were so well written I was practically watching it unfold in my brain!

    I stop dead in my tracks and stare at the woman sitting at the table. Her black hair is up in a ponytail that trails down her back and over one shoulder. The other shoulder is exposed and shows off a tattoo of blue, purple, and silver tones. It looks like a puzzle made of hearts and stars. But what really catches my attention is sprouting from the center of her shoulder blades. Done in some of the brightest ink I've ever seen: black and purple wingsI was instantly drawn in to this story by the way Zoey Derrick so thoroughly paints her characters. I’m not just talking about physically but, their personalities as well. Tristan and Cami are so secure with their outward appearances but, on the inside their emotional insecurities stand firm. Just reading about them made me think of all the times I see people that are secure in their own skin. I wonder are they putting on a show to hide what they are feeling on the inside, is being confident worth brushing aside the emotional insecurities? For Cami, Tristan makes her realize that she wants more from herself and from her life.I met Reed at a bar about six months ago, and we hit it off pretty well. Really well, in fact. We ended up in bed together that same night. We've been seeing each other casually since then, but it's strange: we very rarely ever go out; it's usually just he and I in bed together. I'm not sure that we can be considered a couple, but we've been exclusive to one another since we met.Cami was a complicated character. One I definitely related to. Throughout her life she only knows love through a dollar sign. Her parents didn’t want much to do with her. Instead of being the parents that shower their children with affection, they throw money at her and send her to boarding school overseas. Because Cami only knows love through money, she doesn’t know what real love feels like. She uses sex as a method to feel loved even if it’s an empty love. That is until she meets Tristan. A man she has always had a weird connection with even though they had never met.Something about this gorgeous girl screams to me that I can't just bed her. She's better than that. She deserves far better than me fantasizing about her on a darkened beach.Tristan, has been on the front of magazines, billboards, and has his private life thrown all over the media. He is currently about to be thrown into a whirlwind after breaking up with his longtime girlfriend. In order to escape and heal, he bails to a remote place where no one can find him. Tristan isn’t looking for anything except for peace and quiet. When he finds Cami, the woman with piercings and tattoos, with a confidence unlike any other, he instantly knows he wants her. He doesn’t want to just sleep with her, he wants to be with her and show her she is worthy of love."I'm trying to tell you that I really like you, Cami. More than I should, given that I hardly know you." He smiles at me, a tentative smile. "I really want to get to know you, for you and not just for your body."I truly fell in love with these two characters. They both had obstacles that they needed to overcome before they could completely give themselves to the other. I loved that they took all of their demons and emotions and put them on display with beautiful tattoos. Cami had one of the most elaborate pieces of art on her back that I was blown away by the detail Zoey Derrick put into it. Tristan’s was just as beautiful, but for me his was powerful for the reason behind getting it. Zoey Derrick’s writing is promising. There is always that one moment when I read a book and I just know that this author is going to go places. The idea of the story, the way she describes her characters, the conversations she writes and adding edge to her characters, really makes Zoey’s book stand out to me. I am really looking forward to reading more of her stories and watching her come into her writing.Favorite Quote:"Tristan, I—" She is fighting for the words. "I don't know love. I don't know what it feels like to love another or be loved by someone. I'm scared."Interview with Cami and Tristanhttp://thesubclubbooks.com/?p=14189

    Rating 4 out of 5Finding Love’s Wings was beautiful. The story, the characters, the emotions, the words; they were all beautiful. I sat down to read this and I really didn’t know what to expect. This is Zoey Derrick’s debut novel and I never read reviews of a book when provided with a copy and asked for an honest review. I don’t want to be influenced or jaded or have my review shadowed by other reviews in my head. So, I set out to read this book and at 28% I was texting Danielle:“HOLY SHIT! THIS BOOK IS AMAZING! I’m only at 28% and I am addicted and panting! I can’t believe she asked us to review her book. Zoey Derrick is going to be huge!”Yep, that’s what I said and I’ll stand by it. The heroine, Cami, is so easy to love and yet she doesn’t know what to do with love because of her upbringing (or lack thereof as the case may be). In the opening chapters, you can really feel her loneliness. I felt crushed for her after Reed’s infidelity, but thankfully, her character is not some young, naïve woman who sits and wallows. Cami runs. She runs to a tropical paradise to hide and not lick her wounds as most women would do, but to gather her thoughts and make a plan. She knows that she is a damaged and understands why, but her inner strength keeps her going. Just the kind of girl I could look up to.And then there is Tristan Michaels who is also running from the effects of a loved one’s infidelity. He is supremo book boyfriend material. Being a Hollywood heartthrob, he is obviously yummy, but just like Cami, “I can’t help myself. When it comes to tattoos, I’m a sucker every single time.” But Tristan wasn’t just some tattooed yumsicle. He was an absolute doll and the things he does when wooing Cami are just heart and panty melting sweet! He is such a good man that he was willing to take some of the heat off of the dirty slut whose actions hurt his heart and possibly his career. Who does that?I loved that this book is not the typical “poor girl meets rich boy and he saves her from the big, bad world” storyline. These characters were strong, intelligent, and aware of what they are facing. They were on equal financial terms and had some equally hurtful baggage. But despite the fact that they came to Tarah to hide, they can’t hide from or deny the pull that’s between them. Zoey writes each scene with awareness and sensuality. From a small caress to the dirty deed, Zoey writes with a flaming pen that heats up your core and had me reading faster to see where things were going to go.And then there is the body art in this book! I was Googling “corset piercing” and drooling over the results. Both Cami and Tristan are walking canvases of art with multiple piercings and tattoos between them and their body art plays a big role in the characters’ attempts to open up and share their stories. Hell, I’m jealous of Cami’s whole sense of style.But I digress. This book is a wonderful blend of engaging characters with undeniable chemistry. It was a solid 4 because there were some editing issues and the ending felt a little rushed. Could there be more of Tristan and Cami coming in the future? Regardless, I will definitely read future work from Zoey Derrick. I think she has a promising future in the book world. Thanks Zoey for the opportunity to provide an honest review in exchange for a copy of your book. Well done! Find more reviews at rawbbooks.wordpress.com

    My Rant:Finding loves wings completely shocked the hell out of me. When the author released chapter one to the book I read it and was like OMG did Zoey go full throttle and start of the book like that (wink, wink). Um folk, yes she did. Zoey kicks off the story with bang, you don’t get to work into the story and you are not eased into it either.She completely put the drama in your face and you have to deal with it and boy is it quite the scene. It left me feeling so many emotions because you weren’t sure how Cami was going to react because she was second-guessing her actions as well. Cami was contemplating should she go, should she stay or cause a scene. Her emotions were all over the place but I commend her on making the decision to go away quietly to sort out her feelings. Cami is exposed to us completely in the beginning of the story so you begin to quickly make a connection with her.Cami had a lot going on for herself she was career driven witty and smart. I loved her character because she also was strong but unique. Cami wasn’t just the average girl on the block, which is why Tristan was attracted to her. The author drew out emotions through Cami and you completely connect with her hurt and struggle to deal the loss of her father and her loneliness.Tristan stole my heart away. He was sexy, smart in his bad boyish ways that seem to bring out the bad girl emotions in me. But as a successful celerity in the lime light he has his own issues with trust and dealing with the exposure celebrity-ism brought because the paparazzi just could not stay out of his business to let him just deal with his own issues. But when Tristan collides with Cami the books begins to take you on a world wind of events.Tristan and Cami both had issues they had to overcome but when they got together they completely raised the heat index to at least 99.9 degrees. Not only are you drooling over him you completely fall in love with this man. He is perfect. I loved him completely love him. His tattoos piercings and his ability put it down in and out of the bedroom. Lol.This book was quite the page-turner for me I couldn’t seem to put it down. I was drawn into the book by the authors writing style and her creativity of her characters. The character were unique, which was a pleasant surprise because some times when you read book you feel like your reading the same story just written by a different author but you don’t get that from Finding Loves Wings. The way the characters process their feelings, their personalities just screamed individualism. The author just poured her creativity into this story, which completely amazed me and entrapped me into this love story between Cami and Tristan that before I knew what was happening I began to sprout wings, yes I found loves wings.My Recommendation: I rated this book 4 out of 5 purple rant heart and would recommend this story to anyone that loves a good contemporary story with soaring romance.

This is my honest opinion about this book and I did not receive any monetary compensation for writing this review nor was I obligated to write a positive one.

    Cami’s life just kinda hit a road block, well a speed bump. She walked in her on boyfriend well bed mate. Sleeping with an other woman when he knows shes on her way. To make things worse she was pretty turned on by that. Confused and embarrassed she leaves without a word. Quickly she books a flight out of the country. Well she does make a pit stop at her office in Los Angeles. Her parents left her a PR Firm. She for the most part ignores it. Upset by the way her parents chose to “raise” her. Sending her to England for boarding school. Her mother passed away when she was just a teenager. After which she convinced her father to bring her back to the states to continue her education. Though they are on the same continent the relationship was way past gone. So classic daddy issues which she blames for her cold heart and sexual promiscuity.Tristan is the IT man in Hollywood. On every billboard, magazine and ad. She girlfriend just dropped a bomb on him. She was caught in an Orgy with half the staff of her last film and all on camera. Shes freaking balls and wants his help to get out of the mess she created. Oh did I forget to mention she got herself pregnant during the orgy. Yeah. After this little tidbit of information he decides its time for a personal vacation out of the country.Cami has always had a crush on Tristan. Unbeknownst to Cami her PR firm reps Tristan. She kinda learns that visiting her office. And shes kind of awestruck by just a photo. So she heads to a remote island to heal and get her mind right when she encounters Tristan. Basically they are both highly attracted to each other but decide to take things slow. Just a few things that bother me at this point. Right away they start calling each other baby and babygirl and that just makes me want to bang my head against a cactus. Its a peeve of mine so please take that with a grain of salt unless you peeve the same way than high fucking five!Slowly or quickly depending on how you look at it they open up to each other and start to really develop something real. And there was a nice amount of steamy as well. There were some obvious that would NEVER happen moments in the story but hello its fiction not non fiction so I deal. Also at times I had a hard time following who my narrator was but really it didnt take to long.. Ahhh and I would be remiss if I didnt say I did notice some holes in the story. Bare in mind ive been doing some critical reading lately. With all that being said I did enjoy the book and would love to read more from Derrick.

    Omg I looooove this book. I love Tristan! I love the body art and piercings. I love the chemistry. I just love everything about it. Zoey Derrick, you have a fan! I am ready for book 2…like now!What happened?Cameron Enders and Tristan Michaels both are trying to flee their lives for similar reasons. They both want to clear their heads without anyone finding them. Somehow they both decide to head to the remote island of Tarah.Tristan is trying to escape a very public scandal surrounding his ex-girlfriend Layla, while Cami is trying to move forward with her life. In the wake of her ex-boyfriend’s infidelity she’s determined to disappear for a while. She’s grown weary of meaningless relationships. She wants more out of life but is unsure that she knows the first thing about love…until she meets Tristan.Unbeknownst to Cami, Tristan first spots her in the first class lounge at LAX and he’s instantly drawn to her tattoo. He sees the wings on her back as a sign and is determined to know who they belong to. Hoping they’re on the same flight, he carefully watches her, until he is swarmed by fans and paparazzi. He loses sight of her, but somehow they end up in the same hotel.Tristan isn’t the only one who is smitten. Cami has known who Tristan Michaels is for years. She’s seen his face plastered on billboards and magazines and something about him has always been soothing to her. She finds comfort in his eyes before ever meeting him. She’s always felt a pull but could never describe it, then suddenly, he’s thrust into her life and they’re both falling hard and fast.Though both have been broken down by their pasts. Somehow they find solace in one another.What I loved?TristanCamiTristanTristanOh wait, did I say that already?What else, Tristan! Lol that’s not a typo just me expressing my undying love for him! He is so hot! Oh and Tyson, yeah, I like him too!Zoey Derrick is truly gifted when it comes to her descriptive writing. The intimate encounters will make you blush! If you’re a fan of body art and piercings like I am, you will definitely appreciate this book. This book had my full attention and I finished it in less than 24 hours! The main characters were lovable and their courtship was rather sensual. This was a fun summer read.What I hated?Listen here Zoey, I want the next book and I want it now. lol

    What an impeccably written whirlwind. With this novel Derrick picks you up from the first page and keeps you captivated right to the very end. This is a brilliantly written, extremely vivid novel. Derrick knows how to use descriptions to her benefit. She brings everything to light in such a stark and captivating way that you cannot help but picture it. She writes a very vivid love story that is highlighted with sexual encounters. These scenes are also vividly and tactfully written. They further the storyline rather than simply stopping the story for a racy moment. Everything adds to the feeling of love and connectedness that one feels while reading this.I love how Derrick develops her story. There is so much more to this novel than just boy meets girl, yet at the same time it’s your whirlwind romance novel. This novel definitely has a few ‘holy hell’, ‘wtf’, and ‘I definitely didn’t see that coming’ moments that all add greatly to this captivating story. You fall in love with the idea of the story just as much as you do with the characters themselves.I appreciate the fact that Derrick brings body art to the forefront through this novel without prejudice. Although it is an integral part of both main characters, she also doesn’t let it take over the novel. This is not the only thing that she uses to give us glimpses into the lives and psyche of the main characters but it is one that you cannot miss. Throughout, Derrick has creates some well-rounded characters, none of which are perfect and all of which are loveable in their own way. This includes the supporting cast of characters. Overall, this is a light, flirtatious novel that packs a punch. Derrick keeps you captivated throughout and leaves you simultaneously satiated and wanting more. My final thoughts? Bring on the sequel.Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    **I received a copy in exchange for an honest review**What do you do after finding out that you lover is cheating on you? You run as far as you can get and go on a vacation to Tarah!!Cami a non active CEO of an international entertainment firm is on her way to the airport when she comes across a billboard from Tristan Michaels, the hottest star at the moment. For the last 5 years he is her fantasy guy, fit, muscled and eyes that seem to see right into her soul. After a quick business in LA she will be heading to Honolulu and a connect flight to Tahiti, with no intention to staying there the locals told her about the island of Tarah, a very small and private island, this is what she needs. But everywhere she turns, Tristan Michaels image is splashed all over. At downtown LA, Tristan Michaels is arguing with his girlfriend Layla at the red carpet. Layla decides that this is the perfect time to tell him about pictures that have been taken of her sleeping with the producer of her current project and which now have been leaked to a magazine. On top of that she tells him that she is pregnant from who she has no clue. Since they had no sexual contact for a time ago he is sure that he is not the father. This is the last bomb that has him running to ... Tarah.Is this faith?? Two people finding each other at the same hotel, her fantasy guy and she his mystery lady with the fairy wings, the attraction to each other is undeniable. I loved reading “Finding love's wings” it was easy and quick to read. For once both characters are wealthy, strong and have both a lot of tats and piercings. The love scenes are intense, hot and sexy from the start to finish, can’t wait for the sequel.

    Finding Love’s Wings is a scorching hot contemporary romance, that is equal parts naughty and nice! Cameron Enders has just caught her cheating boyfriend and she is escaping to Tahiti to recover. Tristan Michaels is a hot Hollywood actor, who is fleeing his crazy ex-girlfriend before her scandal hits the fan! These two meet at a resort in Tahiti and their attraction is intense and immediate! These two are opposites in upbringing, but are kindred souls at heart. This novel taught me a lot about tattoos and body piercings! Both characters are well inked and pierced! *fanning face*. The author is great with her characters, but I was sometimes lost on who was talking. The book in written in first person and they sometimes use the same nickname for each other! Minor issue! The novel is a quick read and I wondered at the end, is there going to be a sequel? Congratulations on a refreshing new novel! This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review.

    I received ARC for my honest opinion. the passion, love making was just breath taking.This story was great I could feel the emotions that cami felt not to feel love.some say there is no such think as love at first sight but for cmi that love was already building every time she say his picture. What are the odd that when her cheating boyfriend or sex friend cheats on her a d she sees it with her own eyes. Sends her on a trip of love like she has never experienced before. After a week and getting to know Hollywood most eligible bachelor Tristan, she finds that with him she feels things that she never though she could. After there first night of passion that lasted all night she feels even more connected to this man. There is no shortage of drama when his ex Layla needs help but its to late for Tristan to help. He is done. You will enjoy this story. Can't wait for book two.

    **I received a copy in exchange for an honest review**-3.5 Stars- I really enjoyed this book. I rarely give out 5 stars because I reserve 5 star ratings for my absolute favorites. So 3.5 stars from me means I think this story was definitely worth reading. I really enjoyed that the main characters both had tattoos & piercings not just one or the other like many stories. I also liked that although the hero was rich & famous, the heroine was also rich, so it was the typical normal girl meets billionaire we are seeing these days. Overall it was a sexy, enjoyable read.

    This was a quick, easy to read hot little romance. I absolutely loved the descriptions of the tattoos and other body art and how each character feels about them, why they got them, etc. I liked that both characters are coming at one another with similar issues, baggage, and financial status. While she has more than Tristan, it isn't a rich lover poor lover story, which can get old. I don't care if the "escape to a tropical island and fall in love with someone within a week" is used often. What matters is if it's used well! And this was an enjoyable, modern romance that fit that bill nicely!

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this novel. It was one of those books that are so involving, I stayed up late a few nights because I didn't want to stop reading. I loved the fact that these characters were pierced and tattooed. Not very many romances have their main characters, especially the female, all "tatted " up and it was a nice change. As for the story itself, it was sweet and sexy, with some very intense love scenes and a storyline that kept my attention from start to finish. Overall I would recommend this read to those who enjoy romance and erotica.

    I received an ARC copy in exchange for an honest review.WOW, this book was HOT! I especially liked that Cami was all tatted up and pierced. Not just Tristan. I think it makes the characters even hotter! I really liked this book, it had a great story line, and I loved most of the characters. (Layla being the only one I didn't like). Zoey did an excellent job building each character so that you felt like you were reading about someone that was real ( someone being famous that is). I liked this book and can't wait to see what comes next!

    Cami flees to the island of Tarah after finding her boyfriend in bed with another woman. Tristan a very famous actor comes to the island after finding out his girlfriend had an orgy with 7 other men. Both have their own problems to deal with but their attraction to each other is undeniable.An ok story but a plot I've seen before. There were small inconsistencies throughout, but overall the story flowed well. The book ended at a good point leaving room for the next in the series.

    I am completely in love with the characters in this book ALL of them not just Cami and Tristian. Cami runs off to get away from her love life and reality to figure out what direction she wants to go and Trstian runs off to get away from life in general but upon finding each other both their lives take a different direction. I will be buying the next book that continues their story. I would recommend this book to all my romance reading friends.

    *5 Star Review* BOOK THREEFinding Love’s WingsBy: Zoey Derrick http://amzn.to/1tcPh3hMeet Cameron Enders. She’s covered in incredible tattoos and several body piercings. She’s smart, clever, beautiful and we dare say a bit cold. She has a degree in public relations and from the outside looking in, she seems to have it all. She looks great on paper. Truth is, she doesn’t really know what to do with her life. She’s resentful about her childhood, for even as a young adult, she can’t stop thinking about how her self-serving parents shipped her off to boarding school in England, at a very young age. She was at an age when she really needed them. Her mother died shortly thereafter and her father died about a year ago. She felt incredibly alone. Her father however, left her with one big surprise. Cami must take over as the CEO of their PR firm, Bold. If she does not, the company will be sold at auction to the highest bidder and profits from the sale would be donated to charity. Cami reluctantly decides to take on the ominous role as CEO, although through a loophole, she can remain as the “non-active” CEO and still keep the company intact. Many at the firm believe she is ready to take on this new challenge, but Cami isn’t as secure in those thoughts. She is sure that her father is setting her up for failure, again. Tristan Michaels is a very handsome actor that doesn’t particularly care for all the attention he gains by doing what he what he loves most, and that’s acting. His father passed away when he was a young child and he never had the chance to know him. His mother did everything in her power to make sure Tristan had the life and lifestyle he deserved. Then sadly, his mother passed away. Tristan had never felt so alone. He plunged into acting and auditioned to be an extra in a movie. Through a fantastic twist of fate (or rather face in his case) he got the lead role instead. He begins dating his beautiful costar Layla trying to fill a huge void of love and caring, in his life. Five years later, he realizes he was being used. Layla blatantly participated in a sex tape that had been leaked to the press and all hell was about to break loose. She was always doing things that he found he had to do damage control for her reputation. The embarrassment and the betrayal are almost too much for Tristan to bear. He has to get away.Cami leaves her home in Phoenix to escape the betrayal of her own boyfriend who has cheated on her, yet again. She flies to a remote island to pull herself together without the distractions and persuasions of the rest of the world. Meanwhile Tristan is fleeing his life in LA while he waits for the fallout of Layla’s scandal to pass. He too flies out to a remote island to avoid the press and just to be free to be himself for a while. Fortunately fate brings them together in this luxurious place. They can’t bank on the press or public relations specialists to sugar coat them to others as they are presented. They can’t rely on anything or anyone else to reveal their character. Only they can. To Tristan, Cami is an “angel” and she’s not like the others. No, far from it. She’s authentic and unafraid and Tristan likes that, a lot. Tristan is Cami’s long time celebrity crush! She’s excited but she must play it cool and not be all caught up in his fame, like anyone else would be. Sparks begin to fly immediately between them and this makes for a very steamy filled book. Thank goodness!We enjoyed this book so much. They are unique characters and we kept playing this as a movie in our heads. The song “Can’t Buy Me Love” kept sounding in our minds tii, for with all that these two had, it wasn’t what they really needed. Will Cami and Tristan be able to put their past behind them and find love in each other? Will they be able to trust each other so much, put down their walls and let the love in? We’ll be reading the sequel to this!

    Finding her boyfriend with another woman was the last straw for Cami, and she was ready to leave it all behind and get away for awhile. Turns out someone else had that same idea, and it was the Hollywood hottie Tristan Michaels that Cami had always lusted over from afar. He was battling his own relationship demons, and hiding from the media storm was his only plan until he saw the unique beauty at the bar. Other than her boyfriend being a cheating jerk and some trust issues stemming from her neglectful parents, Cami pretty much has a dream life. She’s filthy rich, but it hasn’t gone to her head because she lives a normal life to the point that her wealth isn’t even a factor. She loves her job, even though it means her firm is representing the guy she’s finding herself more and more drawn to. Tristan, meanwhile, isn’t all that torn up about the breakup of his relationship thanks to his cheating girlfriend. He just doesn’t want to be in the media circus as everything comes out. Some time away on the beautiful island of Tarah is just what the doctor ordered for both of them to hide and heal at the same time, and the more time they spend together, the more it becomes obvious they would both want more than just a secret getaway together. We get quite a few teasers before things really ignite for these two, so be prepared for plenty of mirror-fogging steamy scenes! While the plot was interesting and I really enjoyed Cami’s feistiness, it felt like this was the ultimate fantasy story without the real bones to back it up. Cami breaks up with her cheating ex and suddenly she’s in the arms of her dream celebrity and he’s completely smitten, then we later find out that she’s literally one of the world’s richest people because of a trust fund and smart investing….it was just too much of her getting everything she ever wanted for me to believe, really. There was also a very strong insta-love/lust factor, and the dramatic moments wrapped up too quickly and perfectly, so I just struggled to love this like I’d hoped. It was different, for sure, and Cami was a unique personality (her corset piercing was a nice touch), so for readers looking to step outside the norm this could be a good grab. Quotes:She’s standing there with her arms wrapped around herself, almost like she’s cold. My heart sinks. She looks so alone. I want to walk back to her and embrace her, hold her. ~Loc 1200She looks at me and smiles a brilliantly white smile. “I do love a challenge, Tristan.” “Not a challenge.” I smile and lean in to whisper in her ear. “I want to be buried deep inside of you, in every imaginable position. But not here. Not now. And not tonight.” I pull back and add in a normal tone of voice, “Besides. Dinner’s ready.” ~Loc 2097Looking around, I notice that the flowers are now scattered all throughout my sitting room. I look at Tyson, and he is shaking his head back and forth. “He is completely smitten with you, isn’t he?” A genuine smile spreads wide across his lips. ~Loc 2347Find this and more of my reviews at:http://www.autumnreview.com/search/la...

    See, I liked this couple until they announced their allegiance to the Baltimore Ravens and hatred of my beloved Steelers! I should give this a 1 rating just for that alone! Alas, that may be frowned upon, so I'll say that this otherwise kick ass book is well worth picking up. After catching her boyfriend getting down and dirty with another chick, Cameron Enders decides a break is in order. She leaves Phoenix and heads for the exclusive and private island of Tarah, the very island where the man she's been lusting over for years has also decided to hide. Tristan Michaels is Hollywood royalty, but if anyone knew just how much of a two bit lying whore his girlfriend is, they might have a different opinion! In an effort to get his head on straight, he's holed up in a private penthouse on Tarah. When he meets the beautiful woman with the fairy wings inked on her back, he's immediately enchanted. Cami and Tristan find a magical love in Tarah that neither expected but both embrace. FINDING LOVE'S WINGS is the first book in the Love's Wings Series as well as the overall "world" that includes the 69 Bottles spinoff series (which I loved). Having read the 69 Bottles books first and being introduced to Cami and Tristan there, I wasn't exactly sure what to expect in their own story. I was pleasantly surprised by just how much I loved this couple together! Cami and her "wealthy but shuffled off to boarding school" childhood contradicts Tristan's hardworking and adoring mother, setting them both up with interesting backgrounds. I could relate to Cami's PR world personally, and I appreciated that Tristan wasn't the stereotypical Hollywood playboy that is tamed. Their chemistry was immediate and undeniable, and the sex scenes were off the charts erotic, if quite on the vanilla side (a surprise from Ms. Derrick!). Other than the terribly rude Steelers dis, the only other thing that drove me a little batty was keeping the "T" names and nicknames straight, particularly when they're all mentioned close together. Tristan became Trey, Travis became Trav and Tyson became Ty. At least I think that's how it went, I got confused when they were all together at the end. Other than that, this was a terrific start to the Love's Wings Series and I'm stoked to read more about this couple in the follow up, Chasing Love's Wings. Bottom Line: You'll fall in love with both Cami and Tristan and their mutual appreciation of tattoos and piercings! - See more at: http://erotic.theromancereviews.com/v... - See more at: http://erotic.theromancereviews.com/v...
