  1. Hello Olivia,

    First off I want to say I hope everything is going ok health wise and you are recovering nicely, I know how scary some of that stuff can be! I also wanted to write you and say thanks for writing Rock Me Hard! This was my first rocker romance novel and my first book of yours (you are a great author by the way)! At first I was going to skip it because I wasn’t sure how I felt about it and I know from some other reviews there was a cliff hanger and i don’t read cliff hangers until I know all the books are out but I saw that the second book was supposed to be out in January so I did a sample read and I was hooked! I was reading it while I was at work and I couldn’t put it down and I didn’t care who saw me! Well I did care but I was so into the book that it was a second thought. But it turns out the second book isn’t out yet and I’m freaking out! I don’t know if the meeting between them goes good or bad! The way you left it I feel it could go either way! I won’t start another book until I finish a series so I’m just waiting! But are we any closer to the book being released???!! I know a couple another readers wrote you asking at at the beginning of February but it’s almost the end of February so I figured I would try and get an update if at all possible:)

    Any information is greatly appreciated and I look forward to your reply!

    Pamela:)

    • Hi Pamela!

      Thank you so much for the well-wishes! Things are getting better gradually, so I’m thankful for that.

      Aaaaggghhhh – I’m so sorry you started ROCK ME HARD and Part 2 isn’t out yet! I promise, I had every intention of having it out in January, but I wrote that in November, and then this diverticulitis thing hit right around Thanksgiving and blasted me off my feet for two months…

      I’m so sorry, but I don’t have any information to give you yet on the release date. I AM working on it, I promise, but it’s been slow going. I’ve got about 45,000 words written, but I haven’t gotten anywhere near where I want to be. I’m thinking Book 2 will be about 100,000 words (to give you a comparison, I think Book 1 was about 57,000 words), so I have a ways to go.

      I can tell you that it won’t take forever – I’m really going to try to have it out in the next couple months, but I can’t make any promises, especially if I have to have the surgery. I’m actually seeing another doctor this week, and depending on what he tells me, I might just throw in the towel and decide to have the operation. I’ll see what he says.

      If you can, please start some other books! I hate to think that you’re waiting on ROCK 2 and not able to read anything else – sorry about that, I really, truly am!

      Olivia

    • Same here Ive read all of your books and I love them. Just finished Rock Me Hard Part 1 last night and Im dying to read what happens in part 2. Good luck on your health. Pamela, you need to read about Lily and Connor those books your wont be able to put down.

  2. Omg! I could not stop reading the All He Wants series! It was Great ! I felt I was part of the story. I’m on book 5 right now just started it last nite but excited to get into it! I’d like to see this series become a movie! Thanks so much

    • Hi Janna!

      Thanks so much – I’m so glad you’re enjoying the series! (Well, I’m a little late in replying, so hopefully ‘enjoyed’ the series!) Haha – if you ever meet any movie people who want to invest, tell them I’m interested! :) Hope you enjoyed the rest of ALL THAT HE LOVES – and hopefully you enjoyed ALL THAT SHE LOVES (Connor’s Point of View Part 1) and ROCK ME HARD, too!

      Olivia

  3. Hi Olivia,

    I just finished the whole series of Lily and Connor over the last few days. I downloaded the teaser and after the first few sentences I like your style and Lily. She seems so real and I have to remind myself that she is only fictional. I even looked up the link of Charles Dance after “Still waiting.” (Which was great, by the way).
    While reading I was laughing (especially when she told Miranda that at least one person in this room knows that she is lying), crying, feeling rejected with her, hoping with and for her and I envied her for coming across Connor and not me!
    I would love to read more of Lily and Connor in the future. In the meantime I will read Connors version of the story now and I sure it will be great.
    The whole book was one of the best books I have read in a long time and will definitely be on my list of favorite books.
    Thank you, Olivia and lovely greetings from Germany, Simone

  4. So, during the summer, I read the first four books in about two days. I was so excited for the final installment to come out. In the meantime, I had my coworkers catch up on the series as well so we could all be in the same place. I knew the final installment was coming out during the holidays, so I was just biding my time. Then finally! The final book came out. Not just one book, but two. They met all my expectations. It was not rushed and it was well thought out. Of course, I read it during one evening. I absolutely loved reading this series and can’t wait for the new series to come to completion. Bravo to you, Olivia Thorne. You have definitely become one of my favorite authors, if not my favorite. :-)

    • Hi Tina!

      Awwww, thank you so much – I really appreciate that! Usually people tell me “But you have to write another book because you didn’t do X, Y, and Z” so I’m glad you were happy with the way it turned out! Although it’s official, I will be doing one more book to tie up ALL the loose ends. Just in case you were wondering. :)

      Thank you so much for telling your coworkers – you have no idea how much I appreciate that, and how much it helps. Trying to advertise and get people to take a chance on me is the toughest part of this business. Absolutely nothing compares to someone getting a book recommendation from a friend or coworker – so thank you, thank you, thank you!

      Olivia

  5. I absolutely love your books! I read all of them in an entire night. I could not put my iPad down. I was picturing it like a movie in my head as I was reading. You really have a way with words. I am waiting anxiously for the release of rock all night! I am always checking my email :) lol. Thank you for writing this series

    • Hey Samantha!

      Thank you so much – you read them all in one night?! Dang, you’re FAST! :)

      I’m so glad you pictured it as a movie – that’s exactly how I imagine it, both before I set down the first words, and as I’m typing. I’m glad that came through!

      There’s some bad news, though. I haven’t put it on the blog yet, but I’ve mentioned it on Facebook. I’ve had a bit of a health setback the past month, and will probably require surgery in late January or early February. It’s not life-threatening, it’s just a huge bummer. I was sick for all of December, so my writing output was greatly diminished, and because I just didn’t need the stress, I’ve decided to put off the deadline on Rock 2. I don’t know when it will be out right now. I’m continuing to work on it, but I know there’s no way it’s going to be out in January, and probably not in February. A lot will depend on how long it takes to recover from the surgery.

      Anyway, wish me luck – and I promise, I’ll be working to get it out as soon as I can!

      Hope you’re having a great 2014 so far!

      Olivia

  6. Just letting you know that I finished All That She Wants and loved it, Just posted my review on Smashwords. I was also wondering when the next one of Connor’s POV will be out? I love Connor & Lilly. Love this series.
    I hope you have a Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year!

    • Hi Mary!

      So glad you liked it – thanks for the review on Smashwords! I’m definitely going to do the rest of them, but I don’t have any sort of release schedule for them yet, that’s all. If you haven’t yet, definitely sign up at http://www.OliviaThorneBooks.com and make sure the automatic reply doesn’t wind up in your Spam folder. That’s how I’ll let everybody know about the next one.

      Thanks – Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you, too!

      Olivia

  7. Hi Olivia!

    First off, I have never wrote on an author’s website before. That just proves how much I LOVED your series with Lily and Connor. I had never heard of your books until a week ago, and I’ve already finished the Billionaire’s series! I have downloaded the Rock one and can’t wait to start reading it!
    I was in shock when Connor got shot!! Way to do something completely unexpected!! And the engagement scene was adorable!! I CANNOT wait until your next book comes out! I’m praying its SOON! PLEASE!
    You are an incredible author and I’m sure you have wonderful things in store for you! Congrats on all of your success! I will be sure to recommend your books to everyone!

    P.S. You should do a few more books in the billionaire’s series. I seriously don’t want them to end! Haha.

    • Hi Caitlyn!

      Thank you – I’m honored! I’m so glad you enjoyed the Billionaire series – and this might make you happy: be on the lookout in the next few days for an announcement. I’m actually going to be giving away copies of ALL THAT SHE WANTS (Connor’s View Part 1) as a thank you to my readers! It’s Part 1 rewritten from Connor’s viewpoint. Either sign up at http://www.OliviaThorneBooks.com, or check out my Facebook page or this blog for details.

      And it’s official – I’m definitely going to do the Billionaire’s Wedding, so there’s at least one more original book coming with Lily and Connor in it. :)

      Thanks again so much, Caitlyn! Hope you enjoy ROCK ME HARD (and the heroine’s name, too, even if it’s spelled a little differently)!

      Olivia

  8. I just finished Rock Me Hard. Seriously, just almost dropped my coffee when I realized the last line of the book was going to be him telling her he had been waiting a long time for that moment. I wasn’t expecting the book to end so I am dying now for the second part!! I loved the story and you did a fantastic job of building the relationship through flashbacks. I really felt the relationship grow over time and I appreciated the story not being rushed and the characters not jumping into bed right away. It will be a very very long wait until January!! Great book and can’t wait to read more!!

    • Hi Angela,

      Oh no – I hope you didn’t get burned! Sorry about that! But I’m glad you enjoyed the book – and I’m so glad you liked the gradual build-up and the flashbacks. Thank you so much for the kind words! Haha – for my readers, January seems so far away, but for me, I’m like, “HOLY CRAP, I said I would have it finished by JANUARY?!”

      Thanks so much for reading my books and for writing in!

      Olivia

  9. OMG!!! I just finished ‘Rock’ and I’m loving it!! I can’t wait for the next part. I love the backstory!! It wouldn’t be the same without it. I was so engulfed in the story that I forgot who’s book I was reading until you referenced the Dubai. Even then it took me a minute to remind myself that Connor, Lily, Kaitlyn, and Derek were all created by the same brilliant author! Your writing just keeps getting better and better! I’m a die hard fan and look forward to reading everything you deem worthy for us, your humble and grateful readers, to enjoy! Thank you and I can’t wait for the next installment!! You ROCK!!

    • Hi Korey!

      Oh my gosh, I’m blushing! Thank you so much – I’m so glad you enjoyed it!

      I really like that you enjoyed the backstory. I originally was going to write it with their college romance as just a few isolated flashback scenes, but I couldn’t quite get a handle on the romance that way… it didn’t feel nearly as intimate or real to me. Then, when I decided to focus solely on how they got together, something clicked. Also, a lot of those scenes were actually taken from my first serious college romance – the Dumbo scene, the kiss during studying for finals (even the line, “You kiss like a girl”), seeing a movie together (although it was “Benny And Joon,” not “Eastern Promises”), and the scene at the Krispy Kreme (although the real-life version wasn’t nearly that sad). Drawing from my own experience made it a lot more powerful for me – and hopefully for you, too!

      Thank you so much for all your kind words, and thanks for writing me!

      Olivia

  10. Olivia,
    WOW! Congratulations! I know you talked about wanting to quit your day job and write full time, I’m so happy that your dream came true. That is awesome! Nice way to sneak that information in there. You should be shouting it from the rooftops not sneaking it in. LOL

    Anyway great job!
    Patricia

    • Hi Patricia!

      Haha – thank you so much! For those of you reading this, I was able to give my two-weeks notice on Monday, Nov. 18th. I’ll be a full-time writer in less than two weeks – the company I work for was cool and let my last day be the day before Thanksgiving!

      So, now I can write faster and put out books sooner! Hopefully a win-win for everybody. :)

      Olivia

  11. I just finished “Rock me Hard” in 6 hours! Now I have to wait until January! I hope it comes out sooner than later, cause I am dying to know what happens! You said that your cliff hangers are like tv shows, but most are told the next week, I hate when they have the end of season cliff hanger at the end of the season cause it is months later! I hope you post some clips on your facebook page so we can have a sneak peek!!

  12. I just finished “All that he Loves.” OMG, I could not put it down when I was home! I must say I really hope you write more on Lily and Connor, as I feel like I was left hanging with Miranda and the shooting. It would be great to hear about them in a year after they are married and maybe even have Johnny and Anh hook up. Oh and of course I can’t forget Sebastian! I would definitely recommend this series to people as it really has you connect with each of the characters. Now off to read “Rock me Hard!” Thanks again for a great series and am looking forward to more of your series to come!

    • Hey Jenn!

      Thank you so much – I’m so glad you enjoyed both of them! Thanks for letting me know!

      On All That He Loves – tons of my readers have contacted me saying they loved the book overall, but were disappointed not to have everything 100% wrapped up. So I’ve decided I’m definitely going to do one last book and tie it all together. :) Might take awhile – I won’t do it until after I finish the Rock series – but I’m now completely committed. :)

      On Rock Me Hard – true, you have a point about TV shows being back-to-back every week. I promise, if I could get them out faster, I would! Although now that I’ve just handed in my resignation and will be writing full-time, I have the chance to finally do that! :) I’m even considering trying to finish ALL of the Rock series, because another thing a lot of people really hate is cliffhangers with loooong waits after them. So I’ll see what I can do.

      Thanks so much for reading the books!

      Olivia

  13. Thanks Olivia for ‘All That He Loves’. It was soooooo good. As I was reading it I kept looking at how much percentage was left in the book and I was like ‘oh no, please make it last longer’. I love how you keep the dialogue going and we don’t have to put up with pages of what is going on in the heads of everyone. In other books, by the time whoever answers the question I have forgotten what the question was and I have to go back like 10 pages to read the question again. The conversations between Connor, Lily, Sebastian and Johnny are very realistic and not just some contrived cliche stuff that you would think ‘nobody in real life would say things like that’. So realistic that one could use it to help give them the confidence in real life to handle situations that otherwise might be too intimidating for them – Fake it till you Make it :) There is such a void, a feeling of ‘oh well I better go finish that laundry now – hmmm real exciting, when you have finished the book haha, talk about withdrawal symptoms. I haven’t read “Rock Me Hard” yet cause I want something to look forward to. As soon as I read the Addams Family line I immediately thought of Patricia and thought ‘wow Olivia put her line in the book’ that is so good. Thank you Olivia for writing Connor and Lily’s story. Please, please, please continue it like you said you might do at the end of the book.

    • Hi Mary!

      Thank you so much – I’m so glad you liked it! Haha, yeah, Patricia’s line was great! That’s cool that you recognized it as soon as you saw it! And I’m so glad you enjoyed the dialogue – I think that’s really my strong point, and it’s what I enjoy writing the most. Well, besides sex scenes. :) Even Lily’s thought process is a lot like dialogue to me.

      I hope you get over the book withdrawal soon! Don’t worry – I was so surprised by the clamor of people wanting a wedding and resolution with Miranda that I’m committed to doing it now. I just have to figure out how to do it… :)

      Thanks again for reading the books!

      Olivia

  14. Olivia,
    First, WOW! I loved the new book! I have already read it twice! I am so glad that you left it open to another story. Thank you for putting it all together because otherwise I would have had heart failure with the cliffhangers. When I read the part about the Addams family I had to laugh out loud. That was too cool. Thank you for that! It made me feel awesome to see something we talked about on here show up in the book. Yes, I know you said you were putting it in there, but in the excitement of the new book I forgot about it.

    I’ll talk about Connor and Lily in the next post, but I just got through rereading Rock Me Hard, OMG!!! I stayed up until 4am reading that book and the last line about killed me! I almost posted on here then, but at that point I had been up almost 24 hours, I wasn’t sure if my grammar would be all that great, and I was a little irate. Good thing I don’t have your number or I would have been calling you and begging you for at least the next line. Just one more line! Of course then you would have been wanting to kill me. LOL.

    I absolutely love the new series! I read two “posts” on amazon last night for reviews and they said something about 80% of it being in the past. Ignore them! That last line of the book means so much more BECAUSE we know the whole back story. Anything else and it would have lessened the impact. As you can tell I am a die hard fan of your writing and I will be posting my own reviews on both books. I have watched TV shows where the first 3 minutes are the present the next 45 minutes are back in the past, then we go back to the present right before the show is over. I’m sure those people have watched those shows and not thought anything of it. So they should stop thinking about it now! If that is their only complaint, well then I guess they just needed something to complain about and that was the best they could do. Okay enough ranting over lemon suckers.

    I love Connor and Lily. I mean what woman wouldn’t want to have a billionaire fall in love with her. It’s the ultimate fairy tale. So don’t think what I’m about to say takes away from the love I have for that story. With Derek and Kaitlyn, that story takes me back to high school and my first love. His name was Kevin (kind of ironic there :-) ) and he wrote the sweetest notes. They were all on different colored paper, never the same color, and I still have them. Derek reminds me so much of him. I was the one who had to end it because I was moving and I regretted it for a long time. I can’t regret it anymore, not when I look at my husband and my kids. My kids wouldn’t be the same kids with anyone else and I love my husband and he is a terrific man. But that first love stays with you. I know he wasn’t Kaitlyn’s first love, but the principal is similar. She felt everything so much sharper, brighter and more terrifying with him. A lot of women are going to fall in love with this story and play a little harmless, mental game of what if with this book. You’re going to remind us all of “The One That Got Away”. Even if we no longer regret it. I don’t think I have ever read a book that I have had to do a reread the very next morning after stay up until 4am finishing it. And since my daughter had a sleepover I was up again by 8am!

    Okay I have to go for now, but I am nowhere near finish. LOL. So I expect I’ll probably have another post on here in a few hours. Thank you so much for two great stories. I am waiting not patiently at all for part two.

    Sincerely,
    Patricia

    P.S. If there are any spelling or grammar errors please remember 4 hours of sleep. ;-)

    • Hi Patricia!

      First off, I have to tell everyone reading this, that Patricia contributed Sebastian’s line about the Addams family and Miranda being the dog. I think I added in Sebastian’s, “…and that means you’re the bitch,” but otherwise it was all her! Thank you, Patricia – that’s one of my favorite lines in the book!

      I’m so glad you enjoyed it! Twice?! Wow, you really DID like it! Haha – you’re welcome about putting it all together. After all the emails I got about “I almost threw my Kindle across the room at the end of Part 4,” I was like, uh oh… I better not do that again… That would have been extremely cruel to make everybody wait a month or more after the end of 5 or 6, so thanks for waiting for me to put them all out at one time!

      4 AM?! And up by 8AM?!!! Oh my gosh! Sorry about that. :) Yeah, I’m kind of mean with the cliffhangers, I guess… some people have raked me over the coals about that. But seriously, I kind of see these stories as a TV show rather than books or even standalone movies – and for me, TV shows have cliffhangers to get you to come back. I guess that’s one of the main reasons I do it. Plus, if I had published Billionaire Parts 1-7 as one book, I don’t know many people who would be like, “Oh, yay, a 200,000 word romance, 40% as long as WAR AND PEACE! (War and Peace is 530,000 words, supposedly.) Yeah, I’m gonna read that.”

      Actually, if I had published Billionaire as one book, I probably would have stopped after Part 3 because… daaaamn… 200,000 words is kind of intimidating for me to write. And if I had stopped after Part 3, we would have never met Miranda, or gotten to see Sebastian, or had that “makeover” scene and her going up to Connor.

      Thank you for the backup on the “80% in the past” part. I guess I can see that reviewer’s point… she wanted a hot love story with a rock star, not a fledgling rock star… but you hit it on the head about “the last line of the book means so much more BECAUSE we know the whole back story.” I actually was going to write what will probably be the first half of Part 2, jumping right into the romance, and just kind of putting in flashbacks to their first meeting… but when I started writing it, I couldn’t get a handle on Derek. I didn’t know who he was, or why Kaitlyn would be so entranced with him. So I wrote out his entire story from his viewpoint (more like an outline, really), which is where the Killian Lee story in the club came from… and then I knew who he was. And I started adding in real-life events from my own first serious romance. The Krispy Kreme scene? That actually happened, in a different way. The Dumbo conversation? Actually happened. Going to see a movie with the guy? Actually happened, although it was a movie called FLIRTING, not EASTERN PROMISES. The conversation with the burgers in the deserted parking lot? The location actually happened, although the conversation was different. My dorm room was next to the stairwell, just like I portray in the book – except my roommate wasn’t nearly as crazy (or as interesting) as Shanna. :)

      So I’m glad that this might prompt good memories of past loves. Writing it certainly did for me. There were a lot of things wrong with my relationship with my first real boyfriend, but there were a lot of things that were really, really right. The relationship ended badly, but it’s the only one I’ve ever had (I’m not married) where I wouldn’t trade a moment away, even if I could have escaped the pain that went along with it. I have several relationships where I look back and say, “Yeah, I wish I could have never met him.” Not with that first one. Every moment was worth it.

      Thank you for letting me know how much you enjoyed them – that means a lot to me. Thank you!

      Olivia

  15. Olivia,
    Hi! I’m so glad that you’re back. I have been checking and checking… Hopefully you have all that spam stuff fixed now and won’t have to bother with it anymore.

    Question are you going to be able to get the next book up for pre-order? I don’t know if that takes a lot and if you’re able…..I just thought if possible it would be nice so all of us who have been waiting somewhat impatiently for the next book could have a little present on our kindles or iPads waiting for us in the form of your book.

    Anyway I won’t take up too much time right now. Just know that you have been really missed, sweetie, and we are sooooo excited about the book.

    Take care,
    Patricia

    • Hi Patricia,

      Thanks! Yeah, I’m trying to implement a spam solution now. It hasn’t started, but luckily the Russian and Chinese spammers are giving me a break for awhile.

      No, unfortunately, Amazon only lets gigantic indie names have pre-order pages. For right now, all I can do is send out an email to everybody and let them know via Facebook and the blog.

      Thanks so much for the kind words – hope you’re doing well!

      Olivia

  16. Ok…I’ve just finished reading books 1-4 for the fifth time….I’m on edge like I’ve had 12 cups of coffee the suspense is killing me! Please hurry with the next book :( I’ll keep reading them until it comes out. But the cliffhanger you left is gut wrenching! :(

    Waiting impatiently….:(
    Lisa

    • Hi Lisa,

      HOLY COW, you’ve read them five times?! You’ve read them more than I have, and I wrote them! That’s amazing!

      The good news is that writing is coming along pretty fast. I think I’ll finish up Part 6 in the next week, and Part 7 won’t be that long (knock on wood). Of course, I have to rewrite and edit, but I’m thinking I can get it out in November. Maybe even early November, if the writing fairies are kind to me.

      But knowing that you’re on the sixth re-read of the books, I promise, I’ll write as fast as I possibly can! Thank you so much for writing in, and thanks for being such a super-dedicated fan!

      Olivia

  17. Well, first off I just want to say that for every positive comment on this page I want to agree 200% percent. I love all the characters you have created, they are very believable – I love Lily and am so glad that you have made her a normal everyday girl, not at all like Miranda. I understand that the Lily and Connor story can’t go on forever but please drag it out as long as you can :) I would love there to be a story line about how Herr Klaus wants revenge for losing his job and wants Lily to pay and he kidnaps her demanding a ransom from Connor and how Connor goes out of his mind trying to get Lily back and how he realises that this is definitely not the same as when he paid the ransom for his father and how he really loves her etc etc. Johnny and Sebastian can all feature in the rescue in some capacity, all realising their feelings towards Lily. Sigh!! Thank you so much for deciding to write the Billionaire’s Seduction. It’s sooooooooo good.

    • Hi Mary,

      Ha – you should write that as fan fiction! That’s pretty dang good! And actually, there’s an interesting twist in your plot that is sorta, kinda similar to the way things will actually go… sorta. I don’t want to spoil the surprise, though. :)

      I’m so glad you’ve enjoyed the books – thank you so much for reading them, and for writing in!

      Olivia

      • Thanks for the compliment Olivia but I would have to leave the writing to someone else :D I am definitely not in the same league as you as a writer. You really have me ‘champing at the bit’ now waiting to read the next installment haha. Can’t wait :)

  18. First, I’d like to preface that I am only beginning to read again on a regular basis, since I have two small children. When I was looking through Amazon for a new book, I saw that the first one of your books was free, which gave me the excuse to read without knowing the author. What I didn’t realize was how engrossed I would become in the storyline. After only two days after downloading the first book, I’m now done with the 4th book. I truly enjoyed your story and I’m eager to read more!

    • Hey Amy,

      That’s awesome – I’m so glad you gave the first book a shot! Thank you – and thanks for writing in!

      Good luck with the little ‘uns – hope they give you some more time to read in the near future. :)

  19. Hi Olivia,
    I had to go back and read #4 again and just thought of something. Well Lily and Connor have just gotten back from that extremely hot scene, and Lily wants a shower. She said Connor looks great, but like most women she doesn’t think she’s at her best after a hot, sweaty bout of sex. Now most men, who are into you that is, always think a woman looks great after sex. They’ve got that whole ego thing going, “I made her look like that”. Especially if they think, or it really was, exceptional sex. So we know that the gruesome twosome, otherwise known as Mr. and Mrs. Templeton, know what they’ve been up to. As of yet Miranda hasn’t seen Lily looking just sexed up. Yeah she saw her earlier but not with the “I’ve just been f**ked” look. Now with Lily’s insecurities we can imagine that that might put a damper in her mood, as if the Adams family haven’t done that already. But considering she just took down Mrs. Templeton, I’m wondering if we’re going to get to see her take on the biotch. Ya know Miranda makes some smartass comment about how she looks and Lily says something along the lines of “I look like this because of Connor. To bad Connor never made you look like this, if he had you’d understand I’m feeling way to awesome to care about how I look right now. But he must have found it hard to compete with the stick up your ass, considering you’re getting such a charge out of that stick all on it’s own.” :-) Anyway that’s one of the scenarios that have come to mind. You made me think of those, because there is not a woman out there who would want to meet the ex-girlfriend, ex- fiancé looking less than her very best. Soooooo……..anything like that gonna happen? ;-) ? Come on any little tiny hint? There must have been some reason for her to have that look, right? Or was it just for the whole hooker comment? But since Lily now realizes that Miss.Thing has already scoped her out she’s gotta get some kind of payback somehow.

    Of course if Sebastian could witness some of it that would be great. Lily and Sebastian could be like the Dynamic Duo. I can’t wait to see more of the byplay between those two. I don’t want you to think I’m trying to write the book for you, because you are doing an extremely wonderful job. Sometimes thoughts just pop in there because I can wait to see what happens next.

    Anyway I guess this post is long enough. I didn’t want to disappoint you with a short post ;-) Didn’t want you to think I was sick or something. Of course you probably see my name up there and go “Oh God, another mini book”. LOL

    P.S. I also replied to Michelle’s post up above. I hope that was okay. Keep up the great writing! On those bad days just remember that we all love your writing and are behind you! And if you ever need a pep talk, about anything, just drop me an email anytime. I would be happy to return the favor.

    Patricia

    • Hey Patricia,

      That’s cool, reply to whomever you want! That goes for other readers, too – if you want to have conversations, by all means, go for it!

      Hahahaha – I like the term “just f**ked look.” I might even have to borrow that. :)

      That’s actually a pretty good idea you have there… maybe I’ll go back and play with it in the rewrite. I’ve actually already written the first scene where Lily and Miranda have a confrontation, and I’ve written another scene later where Sebastian comes in (later in the day, in another location) and lays a smackdown on Miranda. THAT scene in particular has some pretty good lines I think you’ll enjoy. I’m toying with how I get them all together again for one final, end-of-the-world, knock-down, drag-out fight, but I’m not sure I can do it based on where I think things are going with the plot. I don’t know… we’ll see once I get there.

      And I don’t mind suggestions! In fact, I’ve already incorporated your line “the Addams family and their little dog, too” – which is now a line said by Sebastian! Thanks, it was a good one! So, see, you’re already making an impact on how things are going!

      Olivia

      • Olivia,
        Hi! That is so cool! About Sebastian using my line. Woohoo! So I happened to see the date today and realized that it had been a while since I was on here. It’s been really busy… school started for the kids, in-laws in to visit, Friday night football games for my boys, etc. Just crazy. But I also realized that we hopefully only have around three more months to wait for the next book. I can’t wait!

        Does Lily get to see Sebastian lay the smack down on Miranda? Just wondering, you don’t have to answer that, but it would be cool.

        I hope everything is going great for you and the writing is just flowing for you! I think this post will probably be my shortest but it’s been a really long weekend and my brain is tired. I’ll probably be on here in the next day or two with a longer one. Until then happy writing!

        • Hi Patricia/Trisha!

          Sounds like fun with the football games – and hopefully the inlaws were okay, too. :)

          Yes, I can actually confirm, there is a fun scene between Sebastian and Miranda. More than that, I shouldn’t say.

          The writing’s going well, thanks! And I don’t think you’ll have to wait three months, either! How long, I’m not quite sure yet…

          Thanks for writing in!

          Olivia

  20. OH MY Gosh!!!! I love this series!!! I’m in love with Conner and Lily’s relationship!!! But I have to say, I hate cliffhangers, so please please please hurry with the 5th book!!! I can’t wait to see how this all ends. Love Love Love your writing!!!! Keep up the great work!

    • Hi Tonya,

      Thank you so much – I’m so glad you enjoyed the books! Thanks for writing in, and thank you for the wonderfully kind words!

      And I promise, I’ll write as fast as I can! :)

      Olivia

    • Hi Julisa,

      I’ve been telling everybody December 2013, but that was largely to give myself a lot of breathing room, since Part 5 will be a full-length novel and the end of the series. I think I can finish earlier – although no promises. I would rather under-promise and over-deliver than miss a deadline by a month (or two, or three…).

      But I’ll definitely let you know as soon as it’s finished – and I will promise that I’ll be writing as fast as I can! Just be sure to sign up at http://www.OliviaThorneBooks.com to get an email as soon as the book is available.

      Thanks for reading the books!

      Olivia

  21. You are amazing! I am a huge fan after this weekend… I started reading and couldn’t put it down!! I read all the books this weekend n I am already itching for books 5-6-7-8-9-10 lol well u get the point lol I don’t want their story to end!! May you have HUGE success with your books & life.

    • Hi Trudy,

      Awww – thank you so much, I really appreciate that! And I’m so glad you found my books – thank you for reading them!

      Olivia

  22. Come on, come on, come on come on, come on, come on, come on – hurry up with the next book… I am another reader who got suckered into the free book and enjoyed the inner monologue style of writing and the characters so much that I had to go and buy the other 3 straight away not realising it wasn’t a complete series …

    Having spent the last day and a half reading these books I need to know what is going to happen and I need to know now! Is Sebastian going to bitch slap that heinous beast of a mother into next week … failing that, will Lily do it… failing that I’ll gladly do it! Will Connor realise that Vincent and the vacuous socialite really do deserve each other and he had a lucky escape – he had better otherwise there may be mutiny by the readers (this is after all a romance)? Will Connor totally shaft his (and I use this word very loosely) ‘family’… I bloody well hope so – rotter’s the lot of them!

    Please do not make us wait until December… and if it is not the last book please write them all now and publish them all within days of each other!!!!

    • Hey Jade,

      Hahaha! I love your suggestions, especially Sebastian bitch-slapping Lenora! That would be EPIC.

      I promise, I’ll write it as fast as I can. And it will be huge – actually, it would normally be Parts 5, 6, and 7; that seems to be what I plotted out in my outline. 5 and 6 would have ended with even worse cliffhangers than Part 4. But I won’t make you suffer through that. :) It will all be in one complete book.

      Also, I said December partly to give myself a LOOOOOT of breathing room… but I think I can finish it before then. No promises, but I think so.

      Thanks so much for reading the books!

      Olivia

  23. I Just read all 4 of them last night.. I really like book number 4 you get to know the characters more. I couldn’t but it down. Do you have an Idea when number 5 is coming out?

    • Hey V! Thanks so much for writing in and letting me know!

      Right now, I’m aiming for Christmas 2013 for Part 5 – but that’s because it will be looooong, and the final book in the series, I think. And if I finish it earlier than that, I’ll definitely put it out earlier.

      Thanks for reading the books!

      Olivia

  24. I adore your books! If I were good at writing I would reword every compliment you have already received in the prior messages. All of the ladies have voiced everything I would have liked to say first! Unfortunately, (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it) I didn’t find your books until two days ago! They had already had the pleasure of formulating their thoughts and letting you know how much we all love your writing and characters! (but they will also have been waiting longer by the time we get to read another one!) I’m very glad I didn’t have to wait in between these installments – no longer than it took for me to log back into Amazon to purchase parts 2-4 after I finished part 1 anyway!! Thanks so much for a wonderful story – I won’t mind rereading what I have until I have the pleasure (wink, wink) of reading the next… and the next…and the next, maybe the next – who cares as long you want to keep writing their story, we will keep reading and waiting!!! Love it!!

    PS – I LOVE Patricia – I could be her best friend if she lived in my area!! My husband’s hobby is motorcycles – very hard to get his attention sometimes, but I have a few good ideas now!

    Thanks again – you have made my summer very fun!! :) :)
    Totally looking forward to my Christmas vacation!!

    • Hey Michelle!

      Hahahaha – I LOVE that I could liven up your summer vacation, and look forward to spicing up your Christmas vacation, too! See, that was totally original of you – I’m, like, ‘the vacation spicer-upper’!

      I’m so glad you found the series and that you’ve enjoyed it so much. Yes, can you imagine the poor folks who found it just after Part 2? (I published 1 & 2 at the same time, back in December 2012.) I’m glad you didn’t have to wait too long to read Parts 3 & 4. Sorry about Part 5! I promise I’ll get it out as soon as I can!

      Yes, Patricia’s great! She actually wrote me an email, and I’ve been encouraging her to try her hand at writing. Anybody reading this: if you want to know anything about writing or self-publishing, or need any encouragement, just write a comment here or drop me a line at oliviathornebooks@gmail.com if you’re shy and don’t want the whole world to see. I’d be glad to pass on what little I know about self-publishing, and encourage you in any way I can. Lord knows I’ve appreciated every single one of your kind words on this blog and elsewhere! That’s one of the hardest things starting out – feeling like you’re alone, and nobody will ever read or like what you do. That’s why everybody’s kind words have been so wonderful: because I know I’m not alone anymore.

      So thank you, Michelle, for letting me know! And thank you to everybody else, too!

      Olivia

    • Michelle,
      Thank you so much! I’ve never had someone, besides the author, comment on my post. So that’s awesome! You’re not by any chance in AL are you? Haha. We could be neighbors and not even know it! Anyway if not there’s always blog friends ;-)

      And Olivia is understating things a little. She’s has given me A LOT of wonderful information. That’s not including the little pep talks she has given me that make you feel like you could actually do it. I could actually write. So I’ve been working on it and, no longer if, but when I finish I’m going to include Olivia in the dedication. Thank you so much Olivia! I wouldn’t have gotten this far without you. I know I haven’t been on here lately but it’s just been so busy around here. Today I realize that I missed coming on here and checking out the post and I find Michelle’s post! And your return post including me! Awwww it gave me warm fuzzies! It’s like catching up with friends.

      BTW I’ve tried out a few things in the bedroom and while I have to admit my husband doesn’t pay attention for the whole conversation, because face it we’re women and love to talk, he does at least pay attention in the beginning. His birthday is next week and I just spent about $75 on an outfit from Victoria’s Secret. Not an outfit that will ever leave the house, hint hint. But I don’t expect him to have a conversation with me while I’m wearing it though, and if he can, well..then he won’t ever have to worry about talking again cause I’ll have to kill him. ;-)

      Anyway I hope you ladies have a great day! I’ve miss being on here, but I’m back now so watch out for all my reaaally long posts :-)

      Patricia

      • I just wanted to add that conversations was not meant as an euphemism for bedroom antics. Just that since I have spiced things up some in the bedroom, conversations outside of the bedroom have gotten a little better. I only lose him about halfway through now! LOL.

        ;-) Patricia

        • Patricia –

          HAHAHA! I actually thought it was a euphemism when I first read it, and I was like, “Dang, Patricia’s Hubbie, you’re losing focus half-way?!” Good to know that’s not the case, and thanks for the clarification!

          Olivia

      • Hey Patricia,

        You would put me in the dedication?! Awwwww… (blushing) And I’m so happy to hear you’re coming along with the book – that’s fantastic! People ask me about writing and I give them what advice I can, but then I ask them six months later how it’s going and they’re like, “Oh, no, I haven’t had time to sit down and start yet.” So that’s fantastic that you’re DOING it! So proud of you!

        Hahaha – hope he enjoys that Victoria’s Secret outfit! My guess is it won’t be staying on long! ;)

        Olivia

  25. I started the books yesterday and finished the 4th today! It is torture! Great booksand a great story, I feel like I know them all personally!

    • Hey Christine,

      Sorry to torture you! I hope it’s the good kind, though! So glad you enjoyed the books, and especially that the characters seem real to you – they certainly feel real to me, so I’m glad that came through!

      Thank you for reading the books and for writing in!

      Olivia

  26. OMG! I just keep screaming “Oh no!!!, It’s done!” I read all four books in two days!! I had to force myself to go to bed! (My husband thanks you “effusively” by the way) :) I’m not sure I can survive until Christmas!! No pressure, but I mean if you happen to finish early…..I love, love, love Sebastian!! (I’ve given him the voice of Roger from “American Dad!) I’m a voracious reader and I know it’s a great book when i start having sidebar conversations with the characters! (Please dont think I’m crazy)! On another note, i totally looked up Charles Dance-50 shades! You’re right! Daaaaayyyyuuuummm! Please stay encouraged n uplifted! And pleeeeaassee Hurrrryy with book #5!….no pressure tho….. :)

    • Hi Zee,

      Hahahahahaha! I about bust a gut on “Roger from ‘American Dad’”! That’s not how I hear him, but that is pretty dang awesome – and hilarious!

      That’s fantastic about your sidebar conversations with the characters! Are you kidding? I wouldn’t think you’re crazy – I mean, I talk to them all the time when I’m writing the book, so I’m just glad to know that they’re that real to you!

      The Charles Dance clip – I know, right? Not only is he hilarious, but DAAAAAAAYYYYYUUUM! That voice when he’s reading Christian… it gives me shivers. The good kind.

      I promise, if I finish Part 5 early, I’ll DEFINITELY publish it as soon as it’s ready. Thanks so much for reading the books!

      Olivia

      PS – Tell your husband he’s welcome! ;)

      • Ok, so here’s the deal! I’ve become a STALKER! I literally find myself checking this blog for updates on Book #5! It’s a sickness, seriously. every few days I look to see if you’ve decided to put us out of our misery.*sigh* Oh well, back to “lurking” for me I guess O_o

        • Zee,
          I hope you don’t mind that I replied to your post, but I totally understand. I have been checking back every day this week to see if there was anything new. I looked today to see if Olivia had posted anything new and saw the last time she posted was in August. I’m just hoping that means everything is going good in her life and she is super busy writing. Fingers crossed! I can’t wait for #5 too!

          And Olivia we do hope everything is going good in your life and in your writing.

          Patricia

          • Thanks! Everything’s going pretty well – I’m getting reaaaaaal close to the first gigantic, super-important scene in Book 6, which is one of things I’ve been wanting to write in the series since Sebastian was introduced.

            How’s that for a teaser? :)

        • Hey Zee!

          Haha – you’re a nice stalker, though! Trust me, you’ll know a couple of weeks before Book 5 comes out because I’ll be trumpeting it from the rooftops! There definitely won’t be any announcements before October 15th, though, so you can relax till then. And there might not be any announcements on October 15th, either, I was just pulling that out of the air. Make sure to check out my Facebook page, too, since I update it a lot more regularly than the blog: https://www.facebook.com/oliviathornebooks

          And make sure you sign up for the email mailing list. That will be the number one way I tell everybody. http://www.OliviaThorneBooks.com

          Thanks for writing in!

          Olivia

  27. I read all 4 books in two days and eagerly anticipating the 5th! Around Christmas? It’ll be a fantastic one then….

    Love the details in your writing and the characters….especially love how Lily isn’t some supermodel looking woman. She’s realistic enough to relate to..

    Can’t wait for the next one!!

    • Hi Therese,

      Thank you so much! I’m so glad you enjoyed them! And I’m glad you like how Lily’s not a supermodel-looking girl. I guess I wanted a chance at smokin’ hot, awesome guy, and I’m living vicariously through Lily. :)

      Thanks so much for reading the books!

      Olivia

    • Hi Nancy!

      Thank you so much – I’m so glad you enjoyed them! I’m shooting for December 2013. But it will be a full-size novel, hence the longer waiting time. Aaaaand… if the writing goes smoothly… then I’ll definitely publish it before then. I’m just trying to give myself some wiggle room. Also, if it turns into a monster (120,000+ words), I’ll probably divide it into two parts.

      Thanks for reading the series!

      Olivia

  28. Just found your books this weekend….. read all 4 of them..now I cant wait until the next one comes out!!!
    Paying 2.99 for them is nothing… they are worth it!!
    I cant wait to see what Sebastian has to say when he gets to Vegas….

    Thanks for a wonderful weekend spent with Connor, Lily, Johnny, and Sebastian!

    • Hi Lisa,

      Awwwww… thank you! I appreciate that!

      I never know exactly how a scene is going to play out – like, I had no idea what Lily was going to say to Mrs. Templeton until it actually happened – but I am hoping for a couple of awesome scenes between Lily and Sebastian. Just having them in the same room together should be incredibly fun to write.

      You’re very welcome – thank you for writing in and letting me know! And thanks for reading the series!

      Olivia

  29. Love, Love the books so PLEASE hurry with number 5. Read all 4 this weekend and now it’s killing me to not know where Lily and Connor go from here.

    • Hi Summer!

      Haha – ‘holy dysfunctional Templetons,’ now THAT’S for sure. Truer word was never spoke. Glad you’re enjoying the books, and thanks for writing in!

      Olivia

  30. Hi Loved loved LOVED the books. YES ! got the 1st one free and I was hooked and really $2.99 for the others books was GREAT Im not complaining its a great price I’m happy to pay that.
    I love the Lilly and Sebastian thing. Looking forward to them meeting. Im sure Sebastian will see Lilly for who she is and love her as we do.
    Although I thought Lilly rambled a bit in the 1st book BUT because of it I now know and see her better and understand her. I love how see sets Connor straight such a normal girl, What you see is what you get + some…. wont take Connors crap.
    I laughed and laughed loved the one liners and the referance to not having a good come backs ( I can really relate ) I’m glad Lilly did. I even shared with my hubby and he had a good laugh too!
    Connor what can I say Humm WOW loved the discriptions :-) .
    What’s with Connor pocketing her Panties? He never seems to return them! lol.
    Even though he gets Lilly into compromising situations he’s always a gentleman and protects her, stands up for her and some times stands up to her.
    Johnny well poor bugger keeps getting ditched? I loved that he scared Lilly and how easily he talks with Connor.
    The ADAMS Family + 1 humm. Please let Connor be strong!
    Any way I can’t wait for 5 6 & 7 happy to read them all. I’ve shared you on my facebook here in Aus so I hope it helps!! XXXXX

    • Hey Gresilda!

      I’m so glad you found the series and are enjoying it! And thanks about the price – I’m glad you don’t mind. I promise, after Part 2 being $2.99, I have tried to give everybody a lot more bang for their buck. (Or three bucks, I guess.)

      Haha – glad you like Lily and Sebastian! Actually, I just outlined out some scenes last night, and I really think folks will like Sebastian and Lily’s main time together. And I think I’ve figured out a way to get Lily, Miranda, and Sebastian in the same scene together, which should be FUN. I know you haven’t seen anything of Miranda yet, but it should be good. She’s not going to be like Mrs. Templeton – where Mrs. Templeton is loud, Miranda will be cool, calm, and level. But even more devastating verbally. (I hope.) A showdown with her should be fun.

      Hahahahaha! I about died laughing when you brought up the panties issue! I hadn’t even thought about that – hmmmm, I wonder what Connor’s doing with those? Maybe he’ll give them back in the next book. :)

      Yes, I wish real life were more like books, where I could write in zingers for myself. I NEVER have good comebacks. I just stand there and stutter, or my mouth falls open and nothing comes out. (Luckily, though, I haven’t encountered any people in my life as bad as the Templetons.)

      Thank you so much for telling folks about me and the books – I really, really appreciate it!

      Olivia

      • Okay I just finished All that He Requires, I have to know when book #5 comes out. I will miss Lily and Connor and of course, Sebastian until I can get my hands on book 5!

        Thanks Ms Thorne for writing a wonderful series.

        • Hi Claudia,

          You’re very welcome – and thank you for writing in! I’m so glad you’ve enjoyed the series!

          As for Part 5′s release date, I’ve been telling everybody December 2013, but that was largely to give myself a lot of breathing room, since Part 5 will be a full-length novel and the end of the series. I think I can finish earlier – although no promises. I would rather under-promise and over-deliver than miss a deadline by a month (or two, or three…).

          But I’ll definitely let you know as soon as it’s finished – and I will promise that I’ll be writing as fast as I can! Just be sure to sign up at http://www.OliviaThorneBooks.com to get an email as soon as the book is available.

          Thanks again for reading the books and for writing in!

          Olivia

  31. AMAZING BOOKS! Really, really loved them and can’t wait for the next 20 books on Connor & Lily! I read all 4 in 2 days and the only reason it took THAT long was that I needed to squeeze in some housework I had ignored while reading! Lol. Seriously love this story and can’t wait for the next book. I’m a romantic at heart what can I say. Anybth

    • Hi Tina!

      Thank you so much! Haha – I love that you would like to see 20 more installments, but I think some other readers would hunt me down and shoot me first! But as soon as I finish Part 5 and resolve what’s going on with Connor and Lily, I’ll start thinking about what could potentially happen after that…

      Well, I’m going to do my best to have Part 5 out before Christmas 2013 – but it will be a full-length novel, I think. That’s the plan – twice as long as Part 3 or 4. If it gets longer than that, I might subdivide it into two parts. Sometime in December 2013, that’s my goal – but if I finish earlier than that, I’ll definitely put it out then!

      Thanks so much for reading the books!

      Olivia

  32. Ugh!!! Major cliffhanger there! Now I really have no patience. Darn it! Great read! Love the new book, but you’re killing me. I’m just going to wish you luck and hope Lily and Connor cooperate so that you can get the story done, with it being as great as the last four books have been. I think the only way you could have made the cliffhanger any worse was if we had progressed to the point where Connor asked Lily to marry him and you ended it there. Oh shoot, pleeeease don’t take any ideas from that.!?! But it was really great seeing more of Johnny and Sebastian. I can’t wait to see the meeting between Lily and Sebastian. Of course that probably be after we get rid of the Adams Family and their little dog too! (Miranda that is). ;-) I shouldn’t say that because I liked the Adams Family, but Psycho only had a dead mom and her son.

    I’m torn, I really really want to get to the happily ever after part, but I don’t really want to see their story end. So I guess I’m up for “five. Maybe six. Seven at the most”. I won’t howl and scream at you, but maybe you could make the cliffhangers a little less heart failure like. I’m sure you’ve got a bunch of women over the world going “WHAAAAT, that’s the end, there is no more!?!?” As they scroll back and forth between the pages making sure they didn’t miss a page or ten! :-)

    Anyway, thanks so much for the great read. Now I’m going to have to go back and read it again, just to torture myself. But at least I can reread while I wait for the next one!

    • I wanted to say one thing about my comments. They were in no way a criticism. Sometimes post can be written one way and taken another. Your book was awesome and the cliffhanger did what it was supposed to, it left me hanging and wanting so much more. So when you read that humongous post (sorry LOL) just know that when I was writing it I was laughing and happy not snipping at you. And no I’m not a blog or post stalker ;-) I just really love the books, recently move to a new state, so haven’t had a chance to make new friends, and my husband is so into sports that unless I can say something good about them it’s hard to get his attention for a conversation. Any way thank you and sorry for writing so much!

      • Hey Patricia,

        Hahahaha – don’t worry, I know you like the book! You’re always super-complimentary! Believe me, I know how it is to get to the end of a story you’re really enjoying and then have it be “To Be Continued.” So I completely sympathize. I’m just glad that you’re onboard with the series and enjoy it enough to put up with that! And seriously, if I just sat down to write this and publish it as one book, I probably would have ended it with Part 3 – have them kiss, make up, and move on – and we never would have gotten to meet Connor’s parents, who I LOVE writing. They’re just such terrible people. And Miranda…I would have never written her. She’s not that great yet, but I can’t wait to give her something really evil to do. And I wouldn’t write the scenes I have in my mind between Sebastian and Lily, coming up in Part 5. So, even though the serial format does kind of suck in some aspects for readers, it actually gave me a lot more time to think and kind of let things simmer, and occasionally inspiration strikes and gives me something I wouldn’t have thought of ordinarily.

        Awww…I hope you find some cool friends, and as for your husband…maybe give him the “good parts” of the book and see if he’ll, ahem, act out Connor’s part in some of them! Seriously, I love it when readers write in, and hardly anybody ever does (hint hint to all you other readers looking at this!), so I’ve been loving your comments – thank you so much for writing in! Feel free to keep ‘em coming!

    • Hey Patricia!

      I love the “Adams Family” and “the little dog, too” bit!

      Haha – I know there’s another point that would have made a great cliffhanger – but I think people will KILL me if I use it. That’s why I’m going to try to get it all done in the next book, so I don’t get angry people coming after me! :)

      Yeah, it’s weird…I know people want to see a final resolution…and I do, too, in a way…but I really love these characters, and it will hurt when I don’t have another book to look forward to. Like saying goodbye to friends who are moving across the world, and you’re afraid you’ll never see them again.

      But that’s not an excuse for a Part 8, that’s just me getting all sentimental. And, I suppose, I COULD always bring them back for more adventures if people demand it, and if I can think of a good enough storyline to justify it.

      I’m so glad you enjoyed Part 4 – sorry it couldn’t have been longer!

      Olivia

      • Please don’t think I was doing the poor pitiful me about just moving. I’ve always been the type of person that I find that one great friend and I’m good. And thankfully I am still friends with all of them that I have made throughout my life. (Although one move to Australia and I lost contact after a few years.) I’ve never been able to have more than that one best friend because women in masses are crazy. LOL :-)

        Anyway who says you actually have to end it? I wouldn’t mind if you just kept going. Make a series out of them, but first finish the part where we get to the love. ;-) He’s a billionaire, we could keep coming back for their adventures and of course some angst and drama. Maybe see Lily kick butt at the job Connor mentioned, but not too much work, we’ll still need lots of time for play. The possibilities are endless! You could just change it from cliffhangers everytime to a complete story at a time. I mean after you get to where you are thinking you want to end it now. I’ve been reading Nora Roberts (J.D. Robb, Eve Dallas series) for over 16 years. And if she ever ends that I’m going to be crushed. Charlaine Harris just ended a series and it was almost like my best friend died. I’ve been so upset I can’t even do rereads yet. I’ll get there but right now I’m still mourning. Really not joking there.

        I’ve read a few comments about your books and I have to say I am extremely disappointed is some people. Some people cannot just take a story, let it make them laugh, cry, get a little excited (ahem), and just enjoy it. They have to find something wrong with it. Either the length, the amount of sex (as in too much, ( is there really such a thing!?!)), or not enough sex, or the book costs too much. I have paid $29.95 for a book before and would do it again it if was a story from one of the authors I read religiously. (The too much sex was a comment about Laurell K. Hamilton’s books, and really griped my butt). If they don’t like it, don’t freaking read it. Leave my authors alone! Some people just have to be able to complain about something. They are just like that and always will be. You know the saying, “You can please everyone some of the time, and some people all of the time, but you cannot please everyone all of the time”. So just set out to please yourself and those of us who love your stories will always keep coming back for more!

        The fact that the format gave you more time to think and come up with more ideas gives me hope. That means if you don’t set boundaries for yourself about this story you could possible make it into a series. I don’t really want to see a finally resolution, just a more stable one. So the sky is limit, shoot for the moon and we will follow along with you!

        On a side note it would be really cool if Johnny and Sebastian both ganged up on Connor and told him not to let Lily go. Maybe Johnny and Sebastian ask Lily to give Connor a chance or they tell her some as of yet unknown fact about Connor that opens up their relationship a little more. Yeah a little, been there done that before with other authors, but sometime billionaires need a little help seeing what’s right in front of them. Of course that would be even better after Lily puts Miranda in her place. I cracked up when she took “Mrs. Templeton” down. It’s so true that you always think of the perfect comeback later and get so upset that you couldn’t think of it when it counted!

        Oh and if you’d like, feel free to use the “Adams Family and their little dog too”. That’d be awesome! I don’t know why I said all that about the book (see over paragraph), you know where you are going and you’re doing a wonderful job of getting there. I just really love the characters. Sebastian makes me laugh, and Johnny is cool. The way that Lily can surprise him and is on his side about security is obviously something he hasn’t had before.

        Anyway sorry for my little mini book here. ;-) I couldn’t stop myself. That is until I went to check it for errors and realized that it was so long! Take care, thank you for posting back, and keep writing!

        • Hi Patricia!

          Okay, I’m glad to hear that the move is better than I thought. That’s awesome that you’ve kept so many good friends through the years and different places – here’s hoping you find that one awesome friend where you are now!

          You know, that’s not a bad suggestion about continuing the series, but as something else. I personally am so focused on finishing this next part that I haven’t considered much beyond it. A number of people have mentioned something similar…but like you said, or implied, I think that anything that comes after this would have to be a slightly different animal. Right now it’s most definitely erotic romance, with the emphasis being on “will they or won’t they stay together?” But anything after that would have to be something different. And the idea of having long, standalone novels is a good one. I’ll have to think about it…after I finish the next part(s)! But those are great points about Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb and Charlaine Harris. I’ve read a few of the Sookie books and I like them, but I have a friend who LOVES them, and like you, she’s mourning the series’ end. (Although she hasn’t been happy with the last couple.) It really is like someone died, or a long-term relationship ended.

          Haha – yeah, I have to admit, I’m a little bummed out by some of the comments, especially about price. I understand people being annoyed about the $2.99 for Part 2, but I’ve consciously tried to make Parts 3 & 4 longer and pack more into them. But I understand…there are definitely authors out there who abuse the system, who charge a lot for 20 or 30 pages, and then go on to do another 20 or 30 pages for the next book. I think those authors have poisoned the well for the rest of us. And there are also really good authors out there who are providing full-length books for 99 cents, so $2.99 looks expensive by comparison. But seriously, those 99 cent folks – I have no idea how they’re making a living (if they’re trying to). At 99 cents, an author makes 35 cents on Amazon. The main reason I charge $2.99 is because from $2.99 to $9.99, Amazon gives authors 70% royalties. If you charge $2.98, you only make 35%. So I charge the least I can and still stay in that 70% royalty bracket. I want to quit the day job and write for a living (so you and other readers can have more books, and faster!), but I can’t do that with 99 cent books. It’s economically impossible, unless I’m selling 15,000+ books a month. And I’m waaaaaay far away from that.

          Anyway, pity party time over. As long as I have far more readers who are happy than those who aren’t, then I’m okay. And so far, the vast majority of folks are really positive, cool, friendly, and supportive. I’m extremely lucky to have so many great readers – and even luckier that Amazon let me make the first part free, which let a lot of those readers find me. Amazon letting books be listed for free is pretty rare, and you have to jump through a lot of hoops – so I was incredibly fortunate that it happened.

          Haha – ohhhhh, Johnny and Sebastian will have all sorts of things to say to Connor in Part 5, believe you me. :)

          And I might just use the Addams family quote and the dog line! That sounds like something Sebastian might say…

          Thanks so much for your support and encouragement, Patricia – I really appreciate it! And to any other readers reading this, if you’ve bought the books and followed the story, thank YOU, too!

          Drop me a line anytime, Patricia! You can reach me at oliviathornebooks@gmail.com, too, if you want.

  33. It’s June 28 at 3pm and I just finished Book 4 and am officially hanging by my teeth for Book 5. Why are you wasting time reading this…..GO WRITE!!!!!
    PS: So far, great series–love the characters and seriously hope Connors’ head doesn’t get lodged too far up his arse to function now that Miranda has re-surfaced……..

    • Hi Josie!

      Haha – wow, you finished that FAST! I WILL have to write faster! I’m really glad you enjoyed it – and I haven’t figured out how to do it yet, but I really, REALLY want to write a Lily vs. Miranda scene… I have to figure out a way to get that in Part 5…

      Thanks so much for reading the books!

      Olivia

  34. I’m dying here….waiting for the new book on my Kindle. I keep checking !! I read the other 3 books in less than 2 days !! Cannot wait to see what happens !!! Thank you for the great books so far !!!

  35. I do have to confess. I have spent waaaay to much money on ebooks this month and my bank account was getting upset with me. Really upset! So as I was looking for yet another book to read I found #1 in the series for free. What could be better than that?!? I didn’t realize at the time that it was #1 though and there was more of them. So after downloading it and reading it, I realize I got sucked in. Who new that it was a marketing ploy to suck you in, so you had to go back for the rest;-) LOL When I got to the end it was a mad scramble to get the next, and I since I was already at Amazon I bought 2 and 3 together. After I read them I realized there was another one. Then I couldn’t find four and had to check your website before I could let it go and head to bed before the sun rose. I have lots of favorite authors I read, and am always looking for more. Because let’s face it, now matter how much we like the stories, you all have to have time to write them. And the longer my list of favorites authors is the more books I can read while I waiting on the writing of another one. I’ve just added another author to the list and I’ll be on the look out for all your new releases. Thanks so much for the laugh out louds (at least my husband and kids were asleep and didn’t look at me like I was crazy, I get those looks a lot when I crack up at books) and for the heartfelt and real emotions of the characters. I hope I’ve been able to make you feel at least a little bit as good as reading your stories made me feel! Thanks so much, and hurry up tomorrow!

    • Hey Patricia,

      Haha – sorry about that…I mean, I’m glad you enjoyed the books, just – sorry to add to your bank account’s woe’s. :)

      Yeah, I was incredibly lucky that Amazon let the book go to free status – authors have to jump through a LOT of hoops to get there. But it’s totally worth it. Trying to get discovered these days by new readers is brutal, so I’m so glad you picked up the first one! Thank you!

      And thank you for all the kind words – I really appreciate that! I’m glad you enjoy the humor, that’s actually my second-favorite part of writing these (after the naughty scenes, of course)!

      I just hit “Publish” on the Amazon account page, so Part 4 should be for sale in about 12 hours! (Sometime in the morning on Friday, June 28th.)

      Thanks again for reading the series and for writing in!

      Olivia

  36. Thank you so much for the great books. I read all of them in a few hours and went for number four. It’s not out yet but thankfully I only have to wait two more days. Or I guess it’s less now since it’s almost 4 in the morning. I have no patience so I guess it’s a good thing I didn’t find your writing earlier in the year. I’m going to be really tried tomorrow, but thanks for the great reading tonight. If number 4 was out now I would be staying up to read it too ;-) So I guess I’m grateful I’ll get a little sleep. But at least you know I couldn’t put them down. Thank you again!

    • Okay that was supposed to be tired not tried, so I guess I’m more tired that I thought. LOL. Anyway thank you again!

    • Hi Patricia!

      Wow – thank you so much – that’s one of the best compliments anybody can pay a writer, that they couldn’t put down the book! I’m glad, though, that you got a chance to get at least a few hours’ sleep, so maybe it’s a good thing Part 4 wasn’t out yet! My pleasure – and thank you so much for writing in and letting me know how much you’re enjoying the series!

      Olivia

  37. I can’t wait for Book 4 – All That He Requires! I read the first 3 books in a day & a half! I am so looking forward to finding out what happens with Connor & Lily. Number 4 can not get on the shelves quick enough! :-) Thank you!!

    • Thank you so much! I’m so glad you’re enjoying them – Friday, June 28th, that’s the big day! Hope you enjoy Part 4!

  38. I literally read all 3 billionaire’s seduction books in 2 days and can’t wait for book 4. Please hurry but make it wonderful!
