~Review: Beyond the Velvet Rope (Club Babylon #1) by Tiffany Ashley~

Scoring a gig at Miami’s Club Babylon is a fantasy come true for New York promoter Thandie Shaw. The hottest club on the strip is a magnet for major South Beach movers and shakers. And Thandie’s about to meet the biggest player of them all.

Babylon owner Elliot Richards is macho, arrogant, sexist—everything Thandie doesn’t want in a boss or lover. Elliot is also the most erotic man who’s ever wanted to take her to bed. But Thandie’s no fool. Even as he tries to seduce her into a world of intense and shocking passion, she knows it’s too good to last…especially after she uncovers Elliot’s explosive secrets.

Thandie’s going down a dangerous road, and she’s risking a lot more than her career. Torn between doubt and desire, will she have to pay the ultimate price?

Darkly sensual and deeply moving, Beyond the Velvet Rope takes you into a world of uncontrollable desire and unexpected consequences.

Overall Rating:  5 Rockin’ ★★★★★
“Elliot had a certain appeal that was enchanting.  And yet as strongly as he captivated her, he frightened her.  She was leery of him, not daring to get too close and yet…she was fascinated all the same.  Like a moth to a flame.”

“If she showed the slightest bit of weakness, there would be blood in the water.  Elliot would attack like the shark he was.  There was a high chance she would not come out unscathed next time.”

WOW!  I loved, loved, loved this book!  Beyond the Velvet Rope is the first book in Tiffany Ashley’s Club Babylon series.  I was bewitched and enslaved from the moment I started reading.

Thandie Shaw is a New York club promoter whose world is turned upside down when she accepts a job in Miami for a new club, Babylon.  Thandie is a beautiful, bright, strong, vivacious young woman, who owns her own business.  Not in the need of any man, she is thrown off balance from the moment she meets the infamous Elliot Richards.  He captivates her being and she will definitely never be the same.

Elliot Richards is one of Miami’s most prominent businessmen.  He has made his fortune through hard work and dedication, with only room for playtime with countless women throughout the years.  Elliot is a player, in every sense of the word.  However, little did he suspect that hiring on the perfect public relations promoter would change his life completely.  

This book was hot, sexy, erotic and totally romantic. I literally didn’t want it to end. There were several, “I didn’t see that coming” moments that took me for a tailspin. I was completely enchanted and engaged with the characters from the very beginning. Everything about the book was amazing.  Want to know how the story ends? Will the steamy couple be together in the end? Can they integrate their tumultuous lives and begin a life together? READ THIS BOOK. It’s a must read! 

I’m sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for the next story in the series. Maybe it’ll be Nico’s adventure or even Matrix’s story. I can’t wait!!!  

Excellent job, Tiffany!  “So you say”…Grēta
