Erector Set Box Set by Desiree Holt


An accident, an unexpected meeting—and a sizzling attraction.

The first meeting between Josh McMann and Vanessa Bowen is anything but promising. He’s just finished a successful dinner with a client and she’s shrieking that someone’s stolen her brand-new car. The walking cast on her leg doesn’t help matters. Not a good way to start either a personal or business relationship…

One thing leads to another and soon her next collision is an off-the-charts one with Josh in bed. But there’s more than sex at stake here and it will take real commitment to get past the trust issues they both have.


She was the one he didn’t want to run from—but she ran first.

Alex McMann is the financial brains behind the ride to stardom of McMann Brothers Development. He and his brothers, Josh and Tyler, cut a wide swathe in commercial development. The only place he can’t seem to get satisfaction is in the bedroom.

Enter Olivia, sharp, smart and sexy, who challenges him in and out of the bedroom and turns his life upside down. For the first time, he’s the one chasing the relationship and she’s the one walking away. Alex will need a miracle to convince her to take a chance on him—permanently.


Why could he only find her when she appeared as Flame?

Tyler McMann—contractor by day, Dom by night. Jenyfer Mayhew—accountant by day, sought-after sub by night. She’s the masked Flame, the star of Finesse, an upscale private dungeon where the only numbers that count are how many strokes of the paddle a sub can take. Tyler is one of its best customers, a place where he can shuck the discipline of his work and indulge his fantasies. The chemistry between the two lights up the sky. But when he learns her real identity, he has to work hard to keep her from running and realize she can truly depend on him.

Book 1: Erected
3 stars
M/F Romance

Josh is one of three brothers who own their own design and build firm. He has just closed a deal and is feeling pretty good when he runs in to Vanessa. She is having the worst night. Her car is missing, she's got a walking cast on, and she feels frazzled.

Their relationship is a whirlwind. They fall fast, despite neither of them wanting to. Vanessa has her own hang-ups and Josh doesn't believe he will ever find someone. It was somewhat of a young adult relationship feel throughout, since both of these characters were not great at relationships.

Overall, this was a quick read and ended just as abruptly as they started.

Book 2: Hammered
4 stars
M/F Romance
Triggers: Car accident

Alex McMann is one of the brothers in a design and build firm. When he walks to a big name firm to talk about a potential new job, the last thing he expects is to be instantly attracted to one of its associates.

Olivia, or Livy as she goes by, has had a raw deal in life. She comes from a family where she was never good enough. She hasn't ever really felt love and that has made her become hardened in her heart.

Livy and Alex agree to a friends with benefits arrangement. However, both of them are fighting their feelings like crazy. They have a fast growing relationship and with all of the things they have in common, in terms of work, staying away from each other proves to be very difficult.

When Alex and Livy find the edge of their cliff, it will take both of them to figure out if they can truly make their relationship into something meaningful, rather than just a series of hookups. I enjoyed this story a little more than the first one – it felt more complete. It was fun to watch them fight their attraction and decide how they wanted their life to go.

Book 3: Nailed
5 stars
M/F BDSM Romance
Triggers: Abuse

Jenyfer, also known as Flame, is a switch at a club that Tyler frequents. She is also a very successful accountant. She is not known for being overly affectionate with her coworkers and hides that part of herself away. Flame only allows herself to let go when she's at the club.

Tyler is the final brother to get his story. His brothers don't know about his sexual preferences, but he doesn't care. It's where he goes to let off steam. With all of the traveling that he has to do to keep on top of all of their jobs, Tyler sometimes just needs his own space.

When Tyler meets Flame for the first time, there is instant chemistry. Flame is his perfect match. When she refuses to show him who she really is, it only adds to her mystery. Their relationship, while a little unconventional, is also one that is almost purely honest. They know that there is an attraction but because of past trauma, Jenyfer isn't willing to mesh her club self with her professional self... until she meets Tyler. He's the first person that she might want to show both sides of herself to.

Tyler and Jenyfer will have to navigate long stays away due to work and Jenyfer's barriers around her heart. I really liked watching these two figure out their relationship. It was refreshing and a well-rounded story.
