First I have to say, that I wouldn’t give these books a 5, but more 3.5 points. It is good, but not that good. It is a Cinderella romance with a twist. Characters are full of them self (at least rich ones), sometimes funny and interesting. Iris (main characters) is a walking depressed mess (at least half of the time) Story is never boring. Always is something happening, you get to know secret by secret and you think that you would kill yourself for a life like that. And secrets never ends…maybe little too much of them. Erotic scenes are not that bad, little more hard at some point, but it gets you to drool a little.
In the end, you will like it or hate it, but I think is worth of reading. It does reminds me little of 50 shades of grey. (without BDSM stuff)

Summary of book one:
Attorney Iris Snowe drinks too much, eats too much, and spends too much. Her sex life has been as spectacularly unsuccessful as her law practice, so she spends her evenings in her tiny apartment watching bad TV, talking to her cat, and rescuing pit bulls.
And her name might be Iris, but it should be Jade. As in jaded, which is how she feels about romance and men in general.
So, when a gorgeous and sexy stranger appears in her law office on Monday morning, after a one-night stand the previous Saturday, she doesn’t think that he is coming to see her because he is interested. She just figures that she left something behind in the room and he is enough of a gentleman to deliver it to her.
How wrong she is.
As it turns out, Ryan Gallagher not only looks like a Ralph Lauren model come to life, but is also fabulously wealthy, as he is the son of a prominent billionaire.
In other words, light years out of Iris’ league.
And completely into her, in more ways than one.
And so begins the erotic Cinderella romance of her life, with a man who truly loves her. And oh, if it could just be that simple. But, of course, it’s not -the fairy tale is fractured, as it is marred by obsession, jealousy, and dark secrets that Ryan has desperately sought to conceal and repress. It turns out that, behind those magnificent green eyes, lies the memories of a past that nobody should ever have to experience. Nobody.
But when his past becomes his present, his secrets come to light.
And one of those secrets just might be deadly…
