Gone - Part One (Gone, #1) by Deborah Bladon

The first part of GONE, a three-part series from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Deborah Bladon.

Sending a half-naked picture to a stranger she met online, seems innocent and fun to Lilly Randall. After spending the past four years working towards an honors degree, she needs a distraction and flirting with a man she doesn't know can't hurt, right?

Clive Parker is the one man who holds all of Lilly's dreams in the palm of his hand. He's the CEO of one of the world's largest technology firms. When her picture ends up in his pocket, her future will never be the same again.

She wants him to see her potential. He questions her motives. Neither can deny the unexpected attraction that exists between them.

When Clive's doubts begin to push them apart, Lilly is forced to face the reality that nothing in life is guaranteed and in the blink of an eye, everything you value can be gone.

Note: This ends in a cliffhanger. Parts Two and Three will be released within the next few weeks.

Yeah, not a fan of serials, so I waited for all the books to be released before I started Gone. I’m so glad I did because oh my that cliffy.

It was good Deborah Bladon, you did good.

I like these kind of reads. It’s really simple, no fuss, no muss, great tension and steamy scenes. You want to read these books between your book hang overs or you are just bored on a rainy day and want to relax.

You have the typical Hero. He’s powerful, successful, rich and owns a company. You have the typical Heroine, she’s young, fresh, work driven and sassy. She accidently sends him *gasp* a naked photo of hers to him, thinking it was his brother! I know, completely awesome way to start the book.

Long story short, she wants to work for his company and it’s funny to read. The chemistry is great and my only complaints is the length of the book, but you are going to get that from serials. I wish there could have been a tiny more character development before it went to insta-lust, but I only so much can be develop within 137 pages.

I say, take a chance at this one.

Deborah Bladon has never read a romance hero she didn't like. Her love for romance novels began when she was old enough to board the bus, library card in hand to check out the newest Harlequin paperbacks. She's a Canadian by heart, and by passport, but you can often spot her in New York City sipping a latte and looking for inspiration for her next story. Manhattan is definitely her second home.

She cherishes her family and believes that each day is a gift for writing, for reading, and for loving.
