Format: Paperback
This is my first Alden book and it was average. Nothing about it really stood out and made it new and different, there was nothing to set it apart from all the other erotic romances out there. In terms of erotic scenes it was average on the heat scale, nothing too wild or overly explicit just sweet and loving.

Julie is the perfect rich hotel heiress doing just what is expected of her until at her wedding she finds her new husband doing his secretary and she decides to grow a backbone. She also decides to "do" her new husband's younger brother, Chris, on her wedding night. Then she decides to go to Chris' non family owned resort for a vacation. Of course once she gets there Chris, the bad boy brother, is only too happy to help Julie out on her journey of sexual discovery. As always something happens to break them up and then we have to wait and see if they can find their happily ever after.

There is nothing wrong with this book but it is just missing that something that makes a story more than just a bunch of words. If you are just getting into erotic romance this would be a nice way to begin, for someone who is already into the genre, and reading James and Leigh, this is not likely to be what you are looking for.

Turn Up The Heat

Finding her brand-new husband in flagrante delicto with another woman wasn't part of Julie Driscoll's plan for her lavish wedding reception. Now she's a bride without a groom--but she's determined to have a wedding night with someone. Her cheating husband's gorgeous brother will do just fine. Chris Dennison is everything his brother isn't, and his hard body is the stuff the steamiest sexual fantasies are made of...

Let's Get This Party Started

Chris isn't about to turn her down. After five years of dreaming about her, the chance to touch Julie's delectably luscious body is too tempting to resist. And when she follows him to the tropical resort he's built from the ground up, she insists hot, wet, skin-to-skin pleasure is all he wants. Now he just has to convince her that he wants more...

Hot Caribbean Romance! (B+ Grade) April 5 2008
By Katie Babs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Julie Driscoll thought that marriage to her boyfriend Brian Dennison would be the best thing life has to offer. She has always done what her father has wanted and feels by marrying this near perfect man, she would have the respect and maturity of her peers, rather than be judged as the rich daddy's girl most think her to be. But even before Julie can cut her wedding cake, she catches her new husband having sex with his assistant in a utility closet and decides she is fed up being the dutiful daughter. Julie will now live on the wild side and that starts tonight with finding a man to give her pleasure and revenge against her dirt bag of a husband who was never faithful to begin with.
Chris Dennison is Brian's half-brother and has been practically in love with Julie ever since they went to college together. He is beyond sick over the fact that Julie has chosen his brother over him. Chris was a well known bad boy and considered to be a mistake by his father even though he is trying to make a name for himself and was the best man at the wedding, Chris can't hardly wait to leave and go back to work at a his resort in the Caribbean. Maybe then he can forget the lovely Julie and the fact she is lost to him forever.
Things don't go according to plan and Chris is in shock when Julie comes to him at his hotel room. She proceeds to tell him what his jerk of a brother did and wants to have one night of passion with him. Chris is not one to refuse this woman and they have a wild night together they both won't soon forget. The next morning Chris leaves and Julie is astounded by her new found feelings for Chris and quickly follows him. Even though Chris acts like what he and Julie did was a mistake, all too soon they are loving each other under the hot Caribbean sun. Chris wants forever with Julie, and Julie in turn is falling in love with this man she has always cared for but always thought of as a protector and friend. These two are not sure if they can make it work even though the passion they have is all consuming and won't die.
Talk about one hot novel! Jami Alden can sure write a sensual love story that will have you reaching for a fan. Private Party is the perfect read for any fan of scorching sex scenes and two characters who are so wonderfully written. The emotion between Chris and Julie is intense and you wish the best for them. The pages come alive and the island atmosphere is thick, especially when Julie and Chris explore their new found sexuality with each other. I was very impressed by the skill and the story Ms. Alden has come up with. I have no doubt that she will be an important author in the erotic romance genre. This is my first read by this author and it certainly won't be my last.

Hot, hot, hot! Nov. 6 2007
By Dixie Diamond - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I haven't read a sexy book in so long I definitely picked the right one. I was expecting some romance and hot sex and I got it plus all the scandal. It is one of the best books I've read. The sex scenes are so good you can't wait until the next encounter. I can't wait to buy another book from this author.

terrific heated romance Nov. 13 2007
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Before they married Brian Dennison was so nice to his fiancée Julie Driscoll that he swept her off her feet. During her wedding celebration Julie searches for her groom so they can cut the cake together. She hears some moaning from inside a broom closet; opens the door to find her new her husband, naked accompanied by his nude assistant; they obviously were doing hanky panky business. Leaving the cake uncut, Julie decides since her spouse looked elsewhere for his wedding sex so will she.

Julie selects the best man her brother-in-law Chris. He has fantasized about making love with her since he first met her five years ago. They share an incredible heat that surpasses his wildest dreams involving her. Afterward he returns to the tropical resort he is building; Julie knows a good thing and follows him.

This is a terrific heated romance starring two likable protagonists and a rat of a groom (making love with someone else on your wedding night is despicable). Readers will appreciate this torrid tale as Chris and Julie prove their room is much hotter than the tropics. Yet with all the erotic moments, Jamie Alden lightens her erotic tale with humor and some satire as ironically thanks to the cheater, Julie finds something sweeter (and saltier).

a pretty standard romance novel Feb. 24 2009
By Shello - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The description and the cover lead you to beleive this is an erotic novel but it is just a pretty standard romance with some pretty cliched story lines. Poor little rich girl has long time crush on bad-boy brother of her fiance, they get together, he's always loved her but thinks he isn't good enough for her, blah, blah, blah. The characters are decent, the sex scenes are good and it is well written but it's just not as HOT as it sets out to be. Not bad but nothing a romance reader has not read a million times.

Private Party Sept. 24 2008
By Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Julie Driscoll has based her entire life on the expectations of others. She has always done what was proper for her wealthy family image, and even found herself engaged to Brian Dennison who was determined to be the best match to seal the families together permanently. Since they were partnered in business, it only seemed fitting she marry into the Dennison family. When she discovered Brian having sex with his new assistant Vanessa right after exchanging vows with her, something snapped inside Julie. She decided then and there that she was tired of being a doormat for everyone. Stunning everyone in attendance at the reception, Julie gave a recap of Brian's actions, and fled.

Chris Dennison had always been the disappointment of his family. He refused to fit into the proper society mold, and fled to the Caribbean to start his own version of the family hotel empire. His Holley Cay resort was a huge success. He hadn't been back to the family fold in years, but couldn't stay away from Julie's wedding. Chris had loved her for years, and when she knocked on his door on her wedding night, he couldn't believe his eyes. After explaining everything, he knew she was after revenge sex, but he didn't care. Chris thought that their one incredible night together was all they would ever have until she showed up at his resort. He tried to stay away from her, but the pull between them was too strong. He at least had her until she went back to her old life under her parent's watchful eyes.

Julie knew her time with Chris was going to be short lived because he didn't allow anything long term, but she had lived with visions of him most of her life. It had started out as a girlish crush that never went away. It was about time for the new improved Julie to take over, and not let anyone dissuade her from spending time with him. When miscommunications and misunderstandings separated them, they would have to overcome personal demons to be together.

Chris and Julie both have tortured souls that lay at the feet of dismal parenting. They lived with the fallout for years both taking different paths. He fled to start his life outside the shadow of his family by opening a successful resort in the Caribbean. She did everything humanly possible to live up to her family's rigid expectations. When these two find themselves together, the chemistry between them is incredibly hot. They compliment each other very well. I haven't enjoyed other books by this author, but found this one well balanced with interesting characters, and story.
