**About the Authors**

M. Clarke aka Mary Ting resides in Southern California with her husband and two children. She enjoys oil painting and making jewelry. Writing her first novel, Crossroads Saga, happened by chance. It was a way to grieve the death of her beloved grandmother, and inspired by a dream she once had as a young girl. When she started reading new adult novels, she fell in love with the genre. It was the reason she had to write one-Something Great. Why the pen name, M. Clarke? She tours with Magic Johnson Foundation to promote literacy and her children's chapter book- No Bullies Allowed.

*My Thoughts*

Note: This review contains NO spoilers

I've read books by both authors. I have to say that they both are amazing. Each author has their own style of writing, both delivering wonderful love stories with well developed characters and settings. Now, they have come together to write this four-part Behind the Door serial! The blending of their two styles created a hot and sensual story!

After reading Part 1, it definitely left me breathless...let alone hot and bothered...haha! Part 1 is just the beginning, it introduced our main character, Abby, to a world of pleasure she has yet to explore. Talk about stress, Abby is all tied up in knots, especially after what happened...not to mention that she works long hours.

I was also curious about this Paradise as I read Part 1. I wanted to know what was behind the door just as much as Abby wanted to know. What a sensual start to this serial. We get the introductions of the characters and settings; then "BAM", we get to the sensual part that gets the heart, aroused. Wow! By the turn of the last page, I was definitely frustrated that I have to wait for the next part to find out more of Abby's exploration of her desires. I must have more!

My rating:
