I loved this book. It was a fun quick read. I was able to read it within one day and start on the next book/part in the trilogy. Like the 50 Shades books it takes place in the Pacific Northwest, although it centers around Portland. As a native to the Portland/Vancouver area I thought that the authors brought more of Portland's true essence through. There were a little added quips that people who live here can appreciate. If you are looking for something hot, yummy, and filled with some added mystery than this is a good read for you. I hope that others enjoy a day of relaxation & fun as much as I have.

A great read! I could not put it down. Solid characters, good story, it was thoroughly enjoyable. I can't wait for the second book. Only problem I had was that it definitely left you hanging at the end. Other than that I would definitely recommend. I would read it again.

WOW. I really really did not want this book to end. Back in the day I would have thrown the book across the room. I can't do it now with my ebooks, Oh hell. So where do I start, Ok I actually didn't expect this book to be so intense based on the description and definately wasn't wanting a cliffhanger. But you take what you get and in this case love love it. I was so happy to see the sequel due out so soon so I can still ride the wave of feeling this book produced without a lot of time passing. The story is written differently than I expected, the beginning was humorous, then turned erotic, then the suspense started to build till the cliffhanger. I did really appreciate the excert from the 2nd book at the end because instead of standing on the cliff saying what the ??, I felt like I got a reprieve to tantalize me about what comes next.
Would I buy the next one? Hell Yeah
Do I recommend it? Already did

4.0 out of 5 stars This one will make Christian Gray blush! January 29, 2013
By Romantic reading escapes book blog  (Format:Kindle Edition)
Champagne Showers is the first installment in the Glass Towers Trilogy and has me conflicted as to how to rate my experience with this book. This is the story of Danielle Austen (formerly Dani Pyne) and the mega real estate mogul, Harrison Towers. Upon first starting Champagne Showers, I was laughing out loud with Danielle's back story of her marriage to and divorce from Bradley and his roving eye. My first thought was that this was going to be an exceptionally fun story. I haven't laughed that hard in a while. Then something changed as the story jumped to one year later in Danielle's life, and I was shaking my head wondering where did the humor go? Suddenly I found myself engulfed in such a steamy and erotic read, I had to retrieve the lawn chair from storage, don my sunglasses, and buy sunscreen. It was THAT scorching hot, and it never cooled down! I feel like I actually got a suntan from reading a book!

Danielle is an interior designer who is just starting her own design business. She was married for years to Bradley, her first and only lover. However her marriage was doomed for disaster when Bradley breaks her heart after accidentally butt dialing her while on a business trip, making his indiscretions no longer discreet. She. Hears. All. I nearly fell out of my seat and even snorted a time or two during this passage. Her reaction to this revelation really had me fist pumping the air for Danielle. She was strong and knew she deserved better than her cheating husband. She remained strong, with exception of that one weak moment for which I could have slapped her, throughout most of the book. That is until she meets Harrison Towers and accepts a job designing a few of the buildings he owns, as well as his personal Penthouse. She knows there is something familiar about Harrison Towers, but doesn't place him until a short time later.

Harrison Towers is a mega real estate mogul from Canada. He is tall, dark, and sexy with a French accent, a motorcycle, a roadster (sex mobile), and every luxury money can afford him. But there is something mysterious about Harrison and his business dealings, not to mention he is quite the dominant and overbearing force in and out of the bedroom. He is a very determined and confident man of few words. When Harrison states it, so let it be let it be done. Harrison is commitment phobic after losing his love, but he now has his eye on Danielle. When Harrison wants something, he will not be deprived of it, nor will his orders be defied. Although his relationship with Danielle begins as a business venture, it quickly escalates to something very erotic, and from there the games begin. This man is quite the commander in the bedroom. However, Danielle has already been burned by her ex-husband and has no desire to reinvest her heart in another man, but this is Harrison Towers.

"I promised myself that I wouldn't allow this. I promised myself I wouldn't care. I promised myself that I would keep my guard up and only have fun. Well, I've broken those promises."

Danielle finds it difficult to resist Harrison's advances and the way her body betrays her weakens her resolve around him even more. She is quickly finding herself compromising her professionalism when it comes to working with Harrison Towers, thus breaking busting any and all fraternizing policies that might or might not have been in place with a force so mighty, the pigs were flying, Hell was freezing over, and the cows came home! I've never blushed so much while reading a book as I have while reading Champagne Showers. I do believe that Christian Gray would be blushing if he were to read this book. I'm talking sex and self-stimulation on every page! If you don't believe me, take it straight from Danielle's dialogue....

"The next morning I awaken feeling rested and really sore. I can't remember ever having this much sex in a 24 hour span of time."

Well, Danielle, I can't ever remember reading about this much sex happening in the time span of this story! Danielle and Harrison have to be the bionic couple with the stamina of cave people! I haven't even mentioned their love for condiments! I'll never picture a chocolate sundae the same way again...ever. So just how was Harrison in the bedroom....and kitchen....and veranda....and hot tub....and bathroom...etc. etc. etc.?

"He was so raw but so in control. He was a considerate lover but he was also in it for his own pleasure and he made no apologies for it. He was honest with his desire."

Because of Harrison, Danielle - who doubted her own prowess in the bedroom after being called a cold fish - began to channel her inner sex goddess and easily kept the pace with Harrison's demands, meeting his every challenge and offering a few challenges of her own. She was different. Never before had a woman taken control from him. He was the dominant one, but he found his control shifting to Danielle easily.

The writing style of Champagne Showers is very different from other books I have read. The beginning of the story had me guffawing, but the prose and storyline shifted with a noticeable difference. By the third chapter, the story began to feel very bland and monotonous. However, I was later introduced to a mysterious element, and I became reinvested in the characters and story line.

I have wavered back and forth on my rating of this book. I can't say that I connected with the characters, and the plot felt lacking for me at first. So what made this jump to a 3.5 star read for me? Something happened in the last few chapters of my reading. The plot began to develop, the mystery began to thicken, the suspense grew, a shocking twist that I never saw coming was revealed, and the ending had me jumping to read the first chapter from the sequel, Shattered; which was generously supplied at the end of Champagne Showers. Will I read the second installment of this trilogy? You bet I will! The journey to reach that ending was so necessary, and the mystery continues into the sequel, Shattered, to be released on February 14.

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally Addicted!, January 14, 2013
This review is from: Glass Towers, Champagne Showers (Kindle Edition)
This book has a great story. Many can relate to Dani a divorced woman with trust issues. A SEXY mogul brings hope with their total great sex, and I mean hot sex they have throughout the entire book. Hope gets smashed with the twist that brings back her trust issues. Characters are great including her ex who is still part of her life. This book makes you want to drink more champagne and take a champagne shower. Book 2 cannot come out fast enough. I hated to come to the end of Glass Towers before book 2 was out.
All I can say its HOT and so ADDICTING! 

5.0 out of 5 stars OMG!!!! Loved it., January 13, 2013

 Harrison and Dani stole my heart. I fell in love with the story so much I giggled and cried and panic all at the way thur the book. More sex than any other book. Hot and heavy in many places. I can't way for the second one to come out and start it and will probably finish it in one day just like I did with Champagne Showers. Just loved.

I loved this book. I couldn't put it down!!! It's hot and sexy. There is so much sex in this book that the characters are keeping a running count of all the places and surfaces. There's mystery, suspense, scandal and pleny of misunderstandings that you don't want to put the book down. Harrison and Danielle are great characters and there are a few you will hate too. I'm desperate for Shattered to be available. So looking forward to it!!!
