    Maddie is one long tease of a novella. It’s a story of seduction, as Maddie meets a mystery man at the Corked and Tapped bar on the night she’s running her company party. One of the gimmicks Maddie used to encourage coworkers to get to know new people at their firm was to have them dress in related costumes for this party and then have to find one another and talk. One of her coworkers turned the tables on Maddie, as her mystery man at the bar is dressed as the Phantom of the Opera to match her Maddie is one long tease of a novella.

One of her coworkers turned the tables on Maddie, as her mystery man at the bar is dressed as the Phantom of the Opera to match her Christine costume.This story is told entirely from Maddie’s point of view, and you’re immersed in her growing simmer of longing for her unknown admirer. The plot revolves around her attraction to him and her lack of awareness of who he is. And that led to the part of this story that bothered me. Maddie essentially goes off with this man for a one-night stand—he hasn’t promised her anything more—and she really doesn’t know who he is. Maddie not knowing him is the crux of the plot, but it still was a bit disturbing that she went to this anonymous man’s hotel room without any backup plan. (He says he knows her and a friend, only confirms the friend’s name after Maddie has said it—nothing here builds confidence that he is who he says he is.) I would have expected Maddie to set up a safety call, let a friend know what she was doing, or something else defensive. But this book is one long, slow burn of intense attraction, and in that sense it’s easy to be swept away by the feelings that practically lift off the page. I just wish some practical protections had been wrapped around Maddie’s actions to give her a strong foundation on which to explore her unknown passion.

    Who is that masked man??There isn’t a woman alive who doesn’t remember with clarity her first love. Some of us are lucky enough to have married our first love, while others use that love to measure each man, each lover against that first love. Whoever and however, that love shapes us, sometimes in ways we don’t even understand until later in life. And that is the premise of author Becca Jameson’s newest addition to her Tapped and Corked series.

Some of us are lucky enough to have married our first love, while others use that love to measure each man, each lover against that first love. Whoever and however, that love shapes us, sometimes in ways we don’t even understand until later in life. And that is the premise of author Becca Jameson’s newest addition to her Tapped and Corked series. MADDIE ‘s intensity is so great; I spend the time reading it on electrified pins and needles. The last two novellas have mentioned Maddie and her efforts at matchmaking, so I was excited to read her story! As have each of the titles included in this Corked and Tapped Series, MADDIE is well written with exciting non-stop action and enough suspense to keep me glued to the pages until I reached the end of this incredible and emotional romance. MADDIE is my favorite so far, but then I’ve said something similar about each of the novellas in this Tapped and Corked series. Each story is unique, delightful, titillating, and swoon-worthy, so get your copy of MADDIE today! I volunteered to read an early copy of MADDIE and this is my honest, voluntary review. Totally worth the time and cost of admission, MADDIE should be your next romance purchase! Happy pages! 😉

The only reason she is going to agree to anything is because he definitely knows Clara and although she can't remember he says he knows her too.I love the way he keeps the mystery going right up to the extremely hot scenes.I laughed, sniffled and had to hydrate from the heat coming off the pages.I can't wait to see what Becca comes up with for the next book in this series.

    Sweet, sexy, and yowzers... I love it when the matchmaker gets matched and doesn't realize it is happening until it is too late. Maddie has been setting up couples for the company party, she needs her match right. Dressed as Christine from Phantom of the Opera she just happens to run into someone dressed up as the Phantom. What are the chances? Is it fate or something else at work? Her Phantom is a mystery so I will not spoil it in this review.

She doesn't know who he is , but he claims to know her and that she does know him. The steam in this book is off the hook and just knowing that they know each other and he is taking all precautions to keep his identity hidden is a huge turn on. Hooked does not even begin to describe what this short story did to me. How about devoured? I did not want to put it down.

While out in the bar she sees her costume partner, the Phantom of the Oprah to her Christine, and flirts with him every chance she gets. She decides to through caution to the wind especially with the fact he knows her and her Clara. She was feeling such a desire for him that she went with him to his hotel for a big surprise she was not expecting. To find out what the surprise is and the passion between these two I believe as a reader you should find out. I highly recommend this book.I was given an advanced reader copy of this book for my honest review.

    I'm loving this series of short standalone reads. You don't have to put in hours & hours to get through the story & each story is just so fun. In this read, Maddie, who organised the costume party that featured in other books, finds her 'matched character' not in the costume party, but in the normal public area. Now, this would have given me a few stalker vibes, but Maddie is insanely attracted to this guy, even though she can't see his face & doesn't know who he is.

    What made you choose to dress as Christine from Phantom? Trisha asked. Maddie had intended for the party to serve as an icebreaker for the employees at Jacoby. You didn’t even assign yourself a match and you are the coordinator. Are you sure it’s just a coincidence that there is a phantom at the main bar here at Corked & Tapped? This is the very basic beginning to a wonderfully written suspenseful romantic mystery erotic thriller. I loved this and I voluntarily leave this review.

    This has been such a great series! I can’t wait to go back and read them all again when it’s finished! I love that we finally get to hear Maddie’s story. As she’s dressed at Christine her Phantom shows up in the main bar at Corked and Tapped during her office Halloween party. Maddie did such a bang up job matchmaking that I was very excited to read her story! Highly recommended!

    The matchmaker meets her match. The Halloween event that Maddie planned for her company has been a rousing success especially in the romance department. The only one without a match is Maddie or so she thought. A mystery Phantom seems to know all about her yet reveals nothing of himself. Dare she take take a walk on the wild side with this intriguing man?

    Maddie's story was wonderful. After all she did arrange the party and accomplished a couple of matches. When she discovers the Phantom in the bar things heat up big time! This was another fast and steamy story in this series and it was great! I am voluntarily reviewing an arc.
