Sexy, addictive and just pure fun, don’t miss the next instalment in the Do Not Disturb series!

After losing her elderly parents, portrait photographer Anna will do anything to avoid losing the family home – the only thing she has left of her perfect childhood.

When a friend who works at the exclusive boutique hotel, The Lavington, provides a hot tip – an A list film star is staying there with her rumored toyboy lover – Anna comes up with a plan. A photo of them together could be the answer to all Anna’s money problems.

Unfortunately, she’s the worst paparazzi photographer on the planet and Jack, the hotel’s new head of security, back in England after globetrotting as bodyguard to the stars, isn’t about to allow a picture on his watch. No matter how cute the photographer might be…

Anna, is normally a portrait photographer, however after losing both her elderly parents in recent months, she has been left with a house she can no longer afford. Her best friend works at The Lavington Hotel, and provides her with a hot tip, for a paparazzi style photograph, of an A-List film star and her new younger lover. They believe if she can get the photo, it will solve both of their financial problems. 

When we meet Anna she is attempting to get back through a window that had slammed shut, after she stepped onto a balcony, hoping to be able to twist round a corner to get that all important shot, after a 3 hour stakeout that left her very bored.

Turns out though no matter what she tries to get the shot, new security guy Jack has her measure. Anna also has a bit of a concious, so isn't entirely comfortable trying to get the photo. 

Jack, has just left a job as bodyguard to an ageing film star, and is thinking about giving up his globe-trotting lifestyle in favour of placing roots in the UK. There is an instant almost undeniable chemistry between Jack and Anna, and its amusing watching it develop.

There is a great sense of humour in this book. The story doesn't take itself too seriously, and there is a sense of light hearted fun about the whole story. 

This was the first book I have read by Charlotte Phillips, and it certainly won't be the last. Access All Areas is an entertaining novella, full of fun and sexual chemistry.

If you have a spare hour or two, and want something to just while away an afternoon, then take a look at Access All Areas, as it provides an excellent escape. 

Thank you to Harper Impulse and Netgalley for allowing me to review this book. This is my honest opinion.. 

Access All Areas will be out on Thursday.
