I enjoyed this book a lot. Julianna Lovette may not always have the highest confidence about herself but one thing she knows for sure is that she excels at her job as an interior designer.
Julianna is living on a shoestring budget while she is starting up her own interior design company. After a rough evening Julianna just wants to end, she is encountered by Nick and Steve who come to her rescue even though s I enjoyed this book a lot. After a rough evening Julianna just wants to end, she is encountered by Nick and Steve who come to her rescue even though she just wants them to go away. But they are persistent in doing the right thing to see her home safely.
Now the question is how can they keep Julianna in their life? The boys are in town because they are in the hotel business and are getting ready to finish off their new jewel the only thing is they need to secure an interior decorator and the boys know who they want.
But as much as they would love to have Julianna to themselves they do want to make sure she is the right decorator for the job. The interview scene was fantastic and not to be missed. I loved sitting back glued to the page as the fireworks went off before my very eyes.
Both men are in agreement that Julianna is not only the woman they want in their bed but the best designer for their hotel. The only thing to do is get her to sign a contract.
What I loved about this book aside from the likeable characters is that there was a fair amount of suspense and intrigue to keep the ball rolling complete with sabotage and kidnappings, along with some really wonderful smexy scenes that balance this book rather well. It was easy to get into and was hard to put down.
I would highly recommend this book to my friends or anyone remotely interested in this genre. Julianna Lovette is confident in her ability to coordinate the redecoration of a multi-million dollar hotel but in not so much in dealing with the enigmatic owners, Nick Morietti and Steve Vanguard.
She was the tall gangly goose that lived in the shadow of a shallow pampered swan of a step-sister. Julianna has developed into a beautiful person inside and out. That personal growth is conveyed thru the confidence in her work but she struggles to comprehend that she is a beautiful, sexually submissive being. Welcome to the incredibly unique and imaginative mind of author Leah Brooke. Be prepared to be drawn into the story from the first chapter and still be fully invested pages later.
Her stories are always multilayered and sexually intense. One of the hallmarks of Ms. Not just physical strength but confidence. While some characters, like Julianna, may need some convincing of their worth and ability to love, you can see those characters standing so much straighter by the end of the story.
Crescendo is a beautiful romance that lives up to its title. When the three of them finally come together as one unit I could almost imagine an opera singer hitting a high A note. There is a sinister evil that is lurking in the background for a large portion of the book but makes itself known in a huge way by the end of the book. So, will Nick and Steve be able to convince Julianna that the three of them together make the perfect family? Will the evil that is hunting Steve destroy their chance for happiness?
Okay, so you can probably guess the answers but believe me when I say you want to read this book. Leah Brooke is one of my favorite story tellers and with good reason.
Her stories never fail to entertain and keep me waiting anxiously for her next book. Pick up a copy of Crescendo and be prepared for some serious heat, heart stopping adventure and breathtaking romance. May 05, Reacherfan rated it liked it Shelves: erotic-romance. In Crescendo, she moves the action to Philadelphia, not exactly a glamorous city, though Miami is thrown into the mix for its locale.
Julianna Lovette is having a very bad day. Facing her 40th birthday, finally working up the nerve to try a dom, only to be mistreated, then having a near accident as she struggles to drive home ashamed and hurt, she gets to her parking lot only to have her blasted high heels send her sprawling onto the rain soaked ground. Suddenly two men are there. They followed her after she nearly hit a stopped car and ran a red light.
Nick Morietti and Steve Vanguard are business partners and friends. Steve and his buddies from his old military unit run security for Nick and Steve is also a partner in the newest luxury hotel, Crescendo.
Since muggers rarely arrive in a limo, Julianna finally calms a bit, but the humiliation of the night just keeps piling up. Then they insist on taking her to her sad little apartment and tending to her cuts. She ends up with the job — much to her own shock. But things start happening. Paint colors are all wrong even after she checked them when they arrived, a dozen other mistakes keep getting made.
It feels like sabotage. Nick and Steve have never been into sharing. Nick is a dom, Steve likes his women wild in bed. Nick refuses to believe it. Cescendo is a long book for a story with such a limited plot, but it reads well and the characters, though not exceptional, are well drawn.
Who is sabotaging her is obvious. It is the Nick character that carries the load in the story, the central rock for the emotional turmoil around him. I do like that there was time to develop relationships. It makes me pause just long enough to not buy as I used to. Feb 25, Judith rated it really liked it.

So the relationship between these three people has room to grow and develop. These two best friends are men who have never shared anything other than their business ventures and their life goals. Now they h First of all, I really like Leah Brooke's writing and although most of her books are about menage with some light BDSM included, the characters have life and are not "flat. Now they have both fallen in love with the same woman, a woman whose path they crossed quite by accident.
