Product Description

"You can call me Sir."

Left with no option but to leave the only life she has ever known, Katherine White has packed up and moved almost three thousand kilometres for a chance at a new start, with a new job, in a new city.

When her best friend drags her to a masquerade party on only her second night in town, Kate has a chance encounter with a mysterious masked man that dominates her, pushes her limits and leaves her craving more. He tells her there is no long-term in their future, but he wants to continue to explore their sexual chemistry. The only trouble is, he wants their identities to remain a mystery.

Benjamin Hyde has been burned by love and has vowed to never let another woman stomp on his heart. His days are filled with successful business ventures, and his nights with one night stands at the club.

After reluctantly being dragged to a masquerade party by his best friend, Ben is surprised to find a girl that captivates him and he doesn't hesitate to take control.

When Ben's new assistant, Kate, arrives on Monday morning, a glimpse of a tattoo on the back of her neck throws a wrench into his perfectly sorted world. Could Kate really be the one that Ben had hooked up with?

Ben wants to pursue Kate, but she is adamant not to mix business with pleasure.
Normally he would agree, except when it comes to Kate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot sexy read! 13 August 2016
By Clare Roden (Clare & Lou's Mad About Books) - Published on Amazon.com
I was absolutely shocked at how much I loved this story, please dont be fooled like I was by the cover of this book as I thought I was going to be reading a sweet romance but after reading the blurb I thought yeah this is my kinda book.
What I found between the pages is a hot sexy erotic romance that I couldn't put down once Id turned the first page. The characters of Kate and Ben have so much sexual chemistry going on between them that I quickly got so immersed into their love story, but as it played out I could tell that it wouldn't all be plain sailing for them to get their HEA.
I especially loved the scenes of Christmas time with Ben's family and the sleigh ride in the snow so very romantic that I could picture it all in my head and would never have been able to have resisted him.
I kinda hoped that the characters Liam and Jen would maybe hook up along the way as their paths crossed a few times throughout the book but would have just been a little something extra to add to an already great story.
Im so very grateful for Erin to have let me read her book and I hope to read more from this very talented author in the future.
A brilliant well deserved 5 Stars!
4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book!!! 5 September 2015
By Melissa Mendoza - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
“Her eyes met mine, and I knew I had her. Kate’s eyes were ablaze with desire and need. I pushed her firmly against the window, capturing her lips with mine and rocking my pelvis into her. She let out a soft moan against my assaulting lips as I moved my hands to the edge of her tank top and slid them up onto her bare skin.”

4 stars!! Wow what a great book!! I really fell into this book and didn’t climb out until the last page!! Characters were well developed and the story was so good!

I don’t think I can even express how well written this book was!! I loved the characters and I loved the stories everything fell together so nicely!! i don’t want to give too much away since I’m the first review, but I will say, you need to buy this book and read it ASAP!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great debut novel 24 August 2015
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I was really surprised in what I found with the debut novel Starting Over by Erin Cristofoli. Unlike most debut novels that sometimes take a little while for me to get into, Starting over was something that had me from the beginning. This book is told in a dual point of view from the characters, and it is a story of second chances for both of them.

Kate has had some bad luck, not only in family but also in her career. She chose to move from her small town to the big city in order to get a fresh start in life. To find a little bit of happiness. She has a new job, still has her best friend Jen with her, but the last thing she expects is to meet a man that makes her feel things that she never thought was possible. A man that pushes her past all of her boundaries. But the thing is she does not know his name. All she knows him by is Sir. The only thing she really knows is that she wants him, but he does not want a relationship, only a little no strings attached fun. But can Kate change his mind?

Ben has been burnt in his love life after finding his fiancée cheating on him he vows to never give his heart to another woman. During this dark period he fund his saving grace in the form of Blue Velvet, a club that allows him to explore his dominant side. But when his friend drags him to a club for some fun one night all he thinks about is getting out of there until he literally gets run into by a stunning beauty that he stops from falling down the stairs. Little does he know this woman turns his world upside down, and makes him rethink everything that he thought he wants.

There are many twist throughout the book and it just drew me in more and more. I think the author done very well for this debut and I hope she bring out another book with the two best friends. Maybe we shall see.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 Hearts for Ben & Kate 22 August 2015
By Romance Between The Sheets - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
3.5 STARS

Please note this review may contain spoilers.

STARTING OVER is the debut novel from Erin Cristofoli and overall it was a pretty good read. It was written well and was not plagued with spelling or punctuation errors that I occasionally see in debut novels. I liked both Kate and Ben as well as their two best friends, Jen and Liam, who make the occasional small appearances throughout the book.

However, I’m sad to say that I didn’t fall in love with this book. Despite being well written, the story didn’t engage me and I found myself taking a few days to finish it. Both Kate and Ben have had bad experiences involving the opposite sex, but I felt those experiences were skimmed over and we only saw the tip of the iceberg, which made it hard for me to relate to their problems. The sex scenes (and sometimes the dialogue between Kate and Ben) felt, for lack of a better word, mechanical. They didn’t feel natural and seemed to lack emotion and passion. Maybe they didn’t lack emotion or passion, but they certainly didn’t invoke those feelings in me.

STARTING OVER is told in dual POVs, does come with a HEA and does not end in a cliffhanger. While nothing currently indicates that this is part of a series, I got the impression there might be another book on the horizon, one perhaps involving Jen and Liam as I thought I detected a spark between the two, but only time will tell. Erin has done a very good job with her first novel and she should be very proud of her accomplishment.
4.0 out of 5 stars Kate"s new journey! 31 January 2017
By Twill726 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book was a really great read for being a debut novel.. The book held my interest and kept me wanting to find out what would happen next. Kate moves from her small hometown and close to her friend, Jen, who suggested that she apply for a job near her. Kate was lucky enough to be hired and moved to start over and hopefully move on from her past.

Jen takes Kate out to have a good time and hopes that her friend hooks up and has a great night. They go to a Masquerade party where Kate meets a handsome stranger and is taken with him. Kate isn't looking for a relationship at this point and neither is the handsome stranger and tells her that. He typically doesn't see a woman more than once but can't get her out of his mind so he plans to get together with her again. Kate gives him her first name and he asks her to call him Sir. Every time after the first meet but don't reveal their identities because they wear masquerade masks.

Kate begins her new job and is attracted to her new boss Ben. He is very attracted to her as well and makes comments as such but Kate tells him she doesn't want to compromise the business/personal relationship. She wants to be able to keep her job and at the most be friends. He is also not the type of man looking to have a girlfriend and settle down after being screwed over by an ex girlfriend.

As Ben and Kate's friendship grows so does their feelings for each other but Kate is hooking up with Sir on different occasions and struggles between the two men.

I recommend you read this book to find out if Ben can get Kate to move past just being friends because his heart is starting to open up to her. How does Kate feel about Ben and will they get together? What about Sir does he end things with Kate because he doesn't do the relationship thing or do they end up together? Does anyone end up with a partner or do they end up alone? It is a really good story that you should definitely read.
