    1. This is a well written romance novel with a nice balance of drama Victor and Samantha's steamy relationship was full of challenges from the very start. Both were attorneys working at the same firm, forced to work on the same case. That alone was enough to cause friction between them because they had very different motives for seeking justice for their client. Not only that, but they both had more than their fair share of baggage from the past. It wasn't until they had almost lost everything that [...]


    2. Lust on the Rocks, by Dianne Venetta, is the perfect kind of story to read on a rainy afternoon. There's more than enough drama to keep you turning pages to see what happens next. And there is a happily ever after--but the characters do grow and change, and going on their journey with them is very satisfying.Samantha Rockwell is the best friend of Dr. Jennifer Hamilton, whose story is told in Jennifer's Garden (also very much worth reading!) Sam is a high-powered attorney at a prestigious law fi [...]


    3. Samantha Rawlings is a very powerful, vivacious and successful attorney in Miami, she is one case away from making partner in the law firm. With the winning case before her, no one or nothing is going to take away her thunder . but her boss, Raul Martinez, a senior partner with the firm has other ideas. He wants her to mentor their new young attorney, Victor Marin, a transplant from Philadelphia, and to make matters worse, he wants her to utilize him on the case. Samantha has already noticed tha [...]


    4. The courtroom gets sexy in Dianne Venetta's Lust on the Rocks. Tasked with winning a major case in the hoped of earning partnership at her law firm, Samantha Rawlings is focused on her career and determined to succeed. A wrench is thrown in her well-oiled machine when a new addition to the law firm is assigned to the case, too.More frustrating than that is the fact that Sam finds herself attracted to Victor Marin. It isn't long before the two are mixing business with pleasure, only to complicate [...]


    5. Samantha Rawings is the roughest, toughest, rootin’, tootin-est, shootin’-est lawyer on South Beach and looks model-perfect while doing it. On the fast track to partner she’s not about to let the new guy take over the case that could get her the brass ring. If you’ve read Dianne Venetta’s previous book, Jennifer’s Garden, then you will recognize Sam as Jennifer’s martini drinking best friend. I thought that Sam’s characterization was one of the better parts of the book and now he [...]


    6. Blue Ribbon Rating: 3 out of 5Original Review LinkAttorney Samantha Rawlings knows that winning her current case will be the thing that gets her the coveted promotion to partner. But when her boss asks that she bring hotshot young lawyer Victor Marin in on the case, Sam is thrown for a loop. Vic is distracting…in more ways than one. His sex appeal sends Sam reeling, and his almost single-minded focus on their current case makes Sam question his motives. It looks like Vic has a personal vendett [...]


    7. Full review hereyourneedtoreadToday I am sharing a book that I received during the Blog Tour de Troops ebook tour in November, I was so excited to help support the event where over 50 authors offered books not only to each commenter but matched each book given to a commenter by sending one to a troop. Anyway needless to say I got quite a few books stockpiled on my Nook and will be reviewing them for you as I get them read.The first one is Lust On The Rocks by Dianne Venetta.She has what he needs [...]


    8. Lust On The Rocks is a top class read. it took me quite some time to read it, simply because I snuggled up in bed with it at night and savoured every delicious detail. It was brilliantly written and had a really well thought out, engaging storyline. It had a real mix of emotions throughout, which I think made it a truly enjoyable read.Sam Rawlings is a powerhouse of a woman, she is in a high profile job as a lawyer and is one case away from becoming a partner in the firm. Her boss wants her to s [...]


    9. The first thing I liked about this book was the fact that both the hero and the heroine were lawyers. It's been some time since I've read a book about a lawyer. And I enjoyed the coaching of the witnesses, seeing how they tried to figure out what the best way to question a witness was, who was better at captivating the jury, every little detail about the case.Sam Rawlings is a very interesting character. She's a very good lawyer in my opinion. She's also sarcastic, stubborn, fun, sexy. I liked t [...]


    10. Samantha is a focused career woman angling to make partner, and Vic is a man bent on revenge. They come together with a combined goal, and heat and desire soon follow. Steamy love scenes and sexy scenery abound.Thanks to the title, I expected sexy and steamy, and I was not disappointed. What I did not expect were such well-developed and interesting characters. There is nothing one-dimensional about this story.The author builds the main characters by showing us their other relationships. Vic and [...]


    11. I tried to like this book. I liked the concept of older woman, younger man. I liked that Sam wasn't portrayed as an older woman on the prowl. She's successful, about to make partner at her law firm. Vic is an associate who wants to work on Sam's current case. He has his own motives for wanting to be involved. Vic is definitely attracted to Sam and the feeling is mutual. But I didn't buy the attraction and for me the characters lacked chemistry. I saw no reason for them to be together other than [...]


    12. This was a fresh breath away from my normal reading of paranormal romance and erotic romance. Lust on the Rocks still got my engines going, but what I loved is the story that kept it all going. The "Lust" was a great asset to the story, but it's not what carried the story and kept me glued to my seat turning the pages. A strong confidant lead woman, an equally strong leading man made for a great set up for some hot sexual tension.What I really liked about this book is that I was able to connect [...]


    13. Some parts of this book were well done while others not so much. I thought the suspenseful scenes (like the near drowning episode) were very well-written. I felt the tension and the frustration of the characters. Other scenes like Vic and Sam eating lunch and flirting with each other were very dry. Though I was told by the author that the two were attracted to each other, I didn't sense the chemistry or the attraction. I thought the underlying story was good, but it felt like a book written on f [...]


    14. I won this book from First Reads and am thankful to the author for the signed copy she sent to me.This is not the type of book I usually read. I am more of a John Grisham fan than a Danielle Steele fan but thought I would give it a shot. I found that the characters were well thought out and the plot made sense. I didn't enjoy the side story about Jess, the main character's sister, but it served to provide a wedge between Sam and Vic that needed to be overcome before they could be together.I wou [...]


    15. I recieved the book from / as a gift in a prize giveaway, I read it as soon as it came through the door. Well, I must say Im not one to read this type of book but it was enthralling. The Spunky attitude of Sam gets to me, since alot of books are written by passive main characters. Even though it is not my typr of book Id usually choose to read, I think it was a great literary work.I didnt read the previous book, Jennifer's Garden, but Im sure if I did, 'Lust on the Rocks' might have made a littl [...]


    16. Check out the full review on Kritters RamblingsMy second book by Dianne Venetta and this one was very similar to the first in that it definitely had some sexy times, but there was a true story at the heart. If you are a follower, you know that I don't tend to read the books that are chock full of sexy times, it makes me very uncomfortable and isn't my type of reading. But I think Venetta writes sex scenes into a story, so I can quickly skip over them and still enjoy a story built on great charac [...]


    17. This is the kind of romance novel that I like. It has just enough drama in it that there’s more to the story than just their relationship. Read the rest of this review here: paperbacksandfrosting


    18. Good book, fast read, and fun. Only thing I don't understand was the title!? It didn't make sense to the book and on almost didn't read it because of the name! If I hadn't read Jennifer's Garden first I probably wouldn't have.



    19. Love,Love,Love Dianne's writing! This is the second book I've read by her and it's wonderful. She is talented and the characters are quite interesting, each in their own way.


    20. Good story line and I really enjoyed the character Sam. The story was predictable at the end, but it was the ending you wanted to happen.
