Hey There, Delilah - Review

Hey There, Delilah… By Andria Large and M.D. Saperstein       

Hi, my name is Delilah Sampson, and I am a
self-proclaimed “frump girl.” My world came crashing down the day I walked in
on my boyfriend having sex with my boss, rendering me single and jobless. A new
job fell into my lap as the secretary of the gorgeous, rich, powerful, and
mighty cocky controlling partner at the Santino Law Firm. I spend my days
trying to please a demanding boss, keeping my lustful thoughts to myself. Until
one night, when my best friend drags me to a club, and I fall for a man whose
true identity I will never know.

See, at Club Masquerade, everyone wears a mask and
a nametag with a fake name. Also, on your nametag is a number that you are
assigned when you come into the club, which is linked to an in-house messaging
system; no one is permitted to speak, which ensures that identities are kept
secret. I meet my lover every Saturday at 9:00 pm sharp. We text and email
constantly when we are not together, and I have somehow fallen in love with

But, then there is Nick Santino. He is the partner
that I can’t keep my eyes off. Unfortunately, the only reason he hired me is
because he is not attracted to me and all of my frump glory. Fortunately, for
me, I am a kick ass secretary, so he keeps me around. Like many men in his
position, Nick is used to getting what he wants, when he wants it; all without
commitment, of course.

So when he finds a woman that he is both physically
and emotionally attracted to, he finds himself in unchartered territory – love.
And I can do nothing but be jealous from the sidelines – lusting for a man I
can’t have, and loving a man I can’t know.

Hey there, Delilah is book 1 of a Taboo Love
series, in which we tackle the boss/secretary relationship. Each book will be a
stand-alone with a HEA, but will have a few reoccurring characters.

I cup her face in my
hands and lean down, brushing my lips over hers. Just the simplest connection
and I have to stifle a moan. My heart starts pounding madly in my chest. Jesus
Christ, I'm barely touching her! She gasps softly and th
at's the end of it - I lose control. I thrust my tongue
into her mouth and kiss her like I've never kissed a woman before. The passion
and pure need are feelings that I've never encountered before. Her hands ball
up in my shirt and she kisses me back just as fervently. Oh god, I'm so hard it
is bordering on painful.


Are any of the situations or characters based on your life or events in
your life?

Andria: Definitely. I think every author pulls things from their
life and puts them into their characters. You almost have to, to make them

MD: Oh, yeah!   There is
no way around it.  You have to write what
you know. Spend some time with Andria and me, and you will think you are
listening to Delilah and Charlie.

 Are there any sexual topics that you won't write about?

Andria & MD:  Bestiality,
incest, and sex with anyone under 18.

Those are definitely off the table.

 Have you read another author’s book and wondered why didn't I come
up with that?

Andria: All the time!

MD: For sure. We all have our own brand of crazy.

Andria: Ain’t that the truth!

 What are you reading right now? 

Andria: Nothing at the moment, been too
focused on writing. Once I start on a book, if it’s good and I can’t put it
down, then the writing doesn’t get done!

MD:  I read about a book
every other day or so, so any answer I give here will be out dated in 48 hours!

What's your favorite material object that you already own?

Andria: My iPhone, I think I’d die without it, lol.

MD:  I have to go with
my iPad with more memory so I can buy more books. I just bought the new Air and
I am like a pig in shit.

 What is your favorite quote?

Andria: “A family is a family not because of gender but because
of values, like commitment, trust and love.”

MD:  “…Then in spite of
everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.”

If your life story was made into a movie a) what would the title be? b)
who would play you?

Andria: The title would probably be “The Movie about Nothing!”
and I’ve been told a couple times that I look like Kate Hudson? I don’t know, I
don’t really see it, but I’d like her to play me, she is so cute and I love her
comedic side.

MD:  “The 101 Things I
do Every Day!”  I am not sure who would
play me. Definitely someone sarcastic, quick-witted, with a sharp tongue.


 About the authors:

Andria Large Bio

Andria is married and a stay at home
mother with two crazy little girls and two psychotic cats. She doesn't go
anywhere without her precious iPhone and a purse full of animal crackers. She
used to be obsessed with the Backstreet Boys, but now is only mildly obsessed
(still goes to every concert when they are in town). She loves cartoons and
Disney movies, and can probably recite every line from Dumb and Dumber. Humor is
a must in her life; otherwise, it would be completely boring. Pepsi is her
weakness, along with anything chocolate. She can’t sing to save her life, but
she pretends she can when she is alone in her car with the music blasting so
that she can’t hear herself. And don’t mess with her family because she will
fuck you up. She loves to read Romance. Paranormal, Scottish, Military, Police,
Firefighters, Athletes, Cowboys and M/M are her favorite. She is not so much a
fan of YA, though. If you haven’t been able to tell from reading her books, she
likes - whether she is reading them or writing them - lots of hot steamy sex.
Andria loves her fans and is always willing to chat. She works hard on her
books, does not get offended easily, and has a pretty thick skin when it comes
to negativity toward her work. She welcomes constructive criticism because she
feels that is how one betters themselves, by taking that constructive criticism
and using it. Andria’s books are her art, they are pieces of her, and she can
only hope that people will like what she does. For those who don’t, she asks
that you be respectful of her art. You don’t have to like it, but you don’t
have to be mean about it either.

Saperstein Bio:
Hi! My name
is M.D. Saperstein. I am currently a stay at home mom with my two gorgeous
kids. I wasn't always a full time mom, though. After graduating from the
University of Florida - Go Gators! - I attended law school at Stetson
University. I spent the next 10 years practicing law. I also spent some time
counseling mental health patients in an out patient psychiatric hospital. But,
until having my own children, my most rewarding job by far was licensing
families to receive abused and neglected foster children.
So, that
brings us to today. In my spare time, while my children were napping, I started
editing novels for other authors. The more I edited, the more ready I felt to
write my own. I just needed a new and exciting story line. Once Hey There,
Delilah was conceived, the ball starting rolling very quickly. I hooked up with
fellow author Andria Large, and we decided to tackle it together. Best decision
I spend most
of my free time with my husband and children. But when I get some
"me" time, I love to read. Mostly romance and erotica, but I don't
discriminate - a good book is a good book, no matter the genre.

My Review:

Stars: 4.5

This was such a sexy and fun story!!!! Frumpy Girl Delilah thought she was in it for the long haul with her boyfriend of 8 years until she walks in on him in a compromising position with her boss. Needless to say she quits her job and her relationship all in the same day!

Delilah goes to work for Nick Santino as his secretary. He is gorgeous and rich and she doesn’t have the “look” of his normal secretaries but he needs something different. He needs “frumpy” Delilah so he doesn’t end up sleeping with her. Delilah on the other hand can’t help the attraction she has for Nick, the Italian Stallion.

Delilah gets persuaded by her friend Charlie to attend Club Masquerade one evening and meets a charming stranger. The funny thing about Club M… you must wear a mask and you can’t talk but communicate through a messaging system. Delilah, aka LALA (club M nickname) is drawn to this guy Nico she meets and eventually falls for him. She doesn’t know a whole lot about him though other than the texts they send back and forth and then their intimate visits on Saturdays.

Delilah is now torn between her feelings for Nick, her boss, and between Nico, her lover! But when Nick starts to seem interested in someone it makes her jealous…. Does she have a right to be though??? Technically she is seeing someone too.

This story was well written and told from alternating points of view. I loved the humor that was thrown in along with the steamy, hot sex!!!! GREAT BOOK and enjoyable read!

My Favorite excerpt:

“You still haven’t answered my question, Delilah. Who are all of these men?”

“They are my book boyfriends, Nick! Jeez, calm down.”

I take a deep breath and try to be rational. In a calm voice, I ask. “What’s a book boyfriend and how do I find them so I can kick their asses?”

She chuckles again at my expense and responds, “I don’t think you will be able to kick any of their asses, sweetheart.”

Now my hackles are rising once again. How dare she question my machismo? “What? You don’t think I can take them?” I ask, my ego bruised.

“Because they live in my Kindle, dumbass. They are fictional!” she shouts at me, knocking me down a peg or two.
