I know, I know, it's getting old...

I know the bragging is getting old, but people, please humor me one more time...
Destiny by Design just got an AWESOME 5 STAR review from JERR. If you just can't take it anymore, go file your nails or something...

Title: Destiny by Design
Author: Wylie Kinson
Publisher: Ellora’s Cave Publishing
Publisher URL: www.ellorascave. com
ISBN: 9781419910913
Reviewer: Mahaira Fatima
Rating: 5 Stars
Heat level: H

Ellis Strathmore, a talented novice is all set to make her presence felt at the Oak Ridges Development Competition with her innovative design within a budget. Armed with her unusual approach to decorating, she is known to drive the workers crazy as she wants everything to her specifications. Simon Callon has made his name in the construction business and he doesn’t need fancy-pants designers telling him how to do his job. Tempers clash and passion flares as paint jobs go bad and things get out of hand. Who is sabotaging the competition and their newly found love?

Ellis is so kooky and fun that you can’t help but love her to bits. The ‘room whisperer’ routine had me laughing out loud in no time as Ellis had her brainstorms. Simon is likable and more. Their relationship feels spontaneous and the heady scent of romance mingles with that of wood polish and paint. Sexual tension is high and the sex is very imaginative. The showers and painting scenes were steamy and the closet scene takes the cake. The explicit scenes are not abundant but just right to flavor the already scrumptious story. It is not as if the storyline hasn’t been used before but the humor and entertainment value set it apart. Ellis’s gay assistant, Remi is a hoot and her former boss and nemesis Cynthia Travers is deliciously conniving and realistic. We get an insight into the competition, the decorating business and a little mystery all at once, with the plot never faltering anywhere. The author has taken great care in tying up loose ends and in answering questions, proving her talent. Destiny by Design is wonderfully heart warming with a well-balanced plot that will have you cheering for the characters and their author in no time!

Thanks for the tag, Susan! I'll post it upon my return.
I guess they didn't think it would qualify because it's a novella? And an e-book?
