Book 1 – One Night Stand Lucy has always had everything under control: her business, as well as her (non-existent) love life. And then George came along and changed everything.
Book 2 – Beautiful Stranger Claudia and Peter meet by chance at the side of the road. She’s a down-to-earth 24 year old with a dead-end job, he’s married and rich. What can possibly go wrong? Book 3 – Only a Taste Mandi is set to move back in with her conservative Punjabi parents. The last thing she needs is complications, but they turn up anyway, in the form of handsome stranger, Callum.


Call me “H.” or Hedonist if you prefer. I’m a Romance writer based in London and I’ve always been a dreamer, though it didn’t occur to me to write down the stories I kept dreaming up until 2012. You’ll not find flowery language and poetry in my work. What you will find though is believable characters, none of whom perfect, going through life and trying to find happiness. Just like the rest of us. I first started writing because I craved to see more of “my kind of books” on the shelves. In any scenario, you’ll find me rooting for the underdog. The (emotionally) scarred hero who hasn’t really had much (or any) luck in love. The shy office worker who wants to pursue the man of her dreams, but hasn’t quite mustered the courage yet. All my characters are beautifully flawed and messed up, in a way that makes them perfect for one another.


One Night Stand

One Night Stand by Hedonist Six
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Title: One Night Stand
Author: Hedonist Six

It was a quick read about a girl needing to find a distraction with a one night stand in the hopes of regaining the control she seems to have lost with everything that's been going on with her life and business. Only, she never expected that the man she chose, sight unseen, would impact her to the point where one night isn't enough to satisfy her. The Chance Encounter series are the first novels I've read by Hedonist Six and they were, if nothing else, enchanting and captivating, making sure that suspense and action are intwined with romance and eroticism. I was curious to find out what this couple would do when faced with the problems of Lucy's business and the involvement of George with this woman considering he's part of a MC.

If nothing else, Hedonist Six knows how to write scenes that leave her readers hot and bothered and wanting to read on to find out how her characters will deal and handle all the obstacles that they are faced with and in this particular situation. I was enchanted by my first novel by Hedonist Six and i can't wait to read more from her in the future.

Beautiful Stranger (Chance Encounters #2)Beautiful Stranger by Hedonist Six
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Title: Beautiful Stranger
Author: Hedonist Six

If there's one thing I try to do every time I pick up a new books, it's to go in expecting everything and nothing, and even more so with an open mind. Here I am, having expected to find a direct link between Beautiful Stranger and One Night Stand that lets me go back and revisit our couple, Lucy and George, from the first instalment, but as I read along, I realized that Beautiful Stranger is an entirely standalone novel that so far has the setting as their only common aspect. Which, I must point out, was not something that turned me off - on the contrary, it had me hooked, I kept wondering how Hedonist Six would make this second instalment as interesting, if not more so, than the first? It didn't take long to find out how. In Beautiful Stranger, we're introduced to 24 year old Claudia and in his 40s Peter, who meet when Claudia's car breaks down on the side of the road.

Considering that Peter's regular tactics of throwing money at a problem to sold it doesn't work with Claudia when she continues to maintain her independence, I enjoyed watching these two find their balance and the way that they can be together albeit their own trust issues. Hedonist Six has a way of pulling in her readers and keeping them captivated, and Beautiful Strangers is no exception.

Only a Taste (Chance Encounters #3)Only a Taste by Hedonist Six
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Title: Only A Taste
Author: Hedonist Six

Of all the books in the Chance Encounters series, Only A Taste ahs to be the most 'cutesey' of them all. Afraid of losing all the advantages that comes with living alone, Mandi has reservations about having to move back in with her parents, especially when she has such strong feelings for Callum, the man she meets the night before leaving her apartment. Unsure if one night is enough, both Callum and Mandi realize that their chemistry is different from any other they've ever felt before.

Hedonist Six managed to write a beautiful conclusion to her Chance Encounters series and it's one book that give you those small chills down your spine when you realize that some types of chemistry, love and connections are rare, but something that we all want. I was enchanted by Only A Taste as well as the relationship that grew and strengthened between Calum and Mandi. For certain Hedonist Six is one fascinating author that I'm curious to know more about in the very near future.
