Once upon a recession, five friends banded together to find success. Ten years later, their exclusive fitness club, Flatiron Five, is the hottest destination in Manhattan. People flock to F5 to get fit, to get lucky, and even, to fall in love. The founding partners have been immune to F5’s spell—at least, so far…

Tyler McKay has had enough…
Going to his fourth sister’s wedding without a date will only encourage his female relations to “help” him find romance. Ty’s ready to wait for Ms. Right and is busy enough as the finance guy for F5. When he learns that the cute woman who works in his building is in the same predicament, he’s sure that fake dates are the perfect solution. She agrees, but Ty soon realizes that there’s far more to Amy than meets the eye. When she enrolls in a bondage class at F5, he finds himself taking a disguise as dangerous Matteo to keep her safe. How far will he go to win the heart of a woman he finds…simply irresistible?

Amy Thornton can’t get enough…
Amy can’t resist another romance about a hot hero and the woman who steals his heart away with naughty games. When she decides to write her own book, she knows she needs to do research. Her fake date, Tyler, is gorgeous but too nice to play naughty games—unlike Matteo, Amy’s mysterious personal instructor at F5, who plays them so well. When Amy has to choose, will she pick the nice guy or the promise of the forbidden pleasures she finds…simply irresistible?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love at First Read!!! I've had this story in my EReader TBR for awhile now and I finally got around to reading it this week. I started it on Monday and finished it on Tuesday, staying up past midnight to finish it even though work starts at 5:00 am. You heard right, work starts at 5:00 am!!! And even though I knew I was no where near the end I just had to finish it. I love the way the characters interact with each other and the other characters. Their back and forth is entertaining and endearing. For me this story was the perfect combination of tender/sweet and erotic. Steamy sex scenes that don't dominate the story but add to it. The look into the world of erotic fiction and light BDSM is an excellent example of different points of view on the topic. I feel that both POV's are given equal consideration. I only give 5 stars to books I absolutely love and this is a new favourite. I can easily see myself recommending this to fans of this genre over and over again. I am so excited to read the rest of this series. The only thing stopping me is the dilemma of ebook or print book. Because a series I LOVE deserves a place on the shelf but I want to read them NOW!!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 3.5 stars-entertaining and passionate 3.5 stars--SIMPLY IRESISTIBLE is the first instalment in Deborah Cooke’s contemporary, adult FLATIRON FIVE erotic romance series focusing on five friends-owners and proprietors of the exclusive Manhattan fitness club Flatiron Five-Tyler, Kyle, Damon, Cassie, and Theo. This is financial investor Tyler McKay, and receptionist Amy Thornton’s story line. NOTE: SIMPLY IRRESISTIBLE is an erotic, romance story line with some light BDSM scenarios including spanking and bondage that may be triggers for more sensitive readers. Told from several third person perspectives including Tyler and Amy SIMPLY IRRESISTIBLE focuses on the fake relationship between financial investor Tyler McKay, and receptionist Amy Thornton. Tyler McKay is tired of the his mother’s need to marry off her only son, and with the upcoming wedding of sister number four, Tyler needs a ‘fake girlfriend’ to ward off his mother’s matchmaking advances. Enter receptionist Amy Thornton, a ‘plain Jane’ woman whose interests include erotic romance story lines, and BDSM. When his very own F5 Fitness Club offers classes in sexual awareness, Tyler soon discovers that the ‘shy and dower’ Amy Thornton has signed up for some awareness of her own. What ensues is the building romance between Tyler and Amy, as Tyler makes Amy an offer she cannot refuse. When Tyler asks Amy to be his plus-one for his sister’s wedding, he also offers to be Amy’s plus-one for her cousin’s wedding in return. Amy Thornton is a bit of a ‘door-mat’ in that she is easily pushed around by her boss, and a cousin who demands all of Amy’s time in advance of her own wedding. Her inability to say no, and need to help didn’t do our heroine any favours. Having no knowledge about her extended family, Amy is pulled into the vortex that will become her own personal h*ll. Tyler McKay doesn’t do relationships but meeting Amy Thornton, something about our heroine tugs at Tyler’s heart including her need to discover her kinkier side. The relationship between Tyler and Amy begins as an arrangement; a fake relationship to appease Tyler’s mother, and the growing entourage of aunts and sisters who are determined to marry Tyler to the first suitable bachelorette. With no plans for anything permanent, Amy considers a relationship with someone else, someone who isn’t quite whom they appear to be. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and intense with some light BDSM scenarios. We are introduced to Tyler’s business partners at F5: Kyle, Damon, Cassie, and Theo; Amy’s best friend and book store owner Jade; Tyler’s sister Lauren whose own marriage is spiralling out of control; and an assortment of well-meaning sisters and cousins, including a ‘bridezilla’ intent on abusing Amy’s quiet nature. Kyle and Lauren’s story line is next in ADDICTED TO LOVE. SIMPLY IRRESISTIBLE is a story of family, honor, betrayal and trust. Because this is a story with a secondary premise focusing on BDSM, the issues of trust come into question. The ‘Dominant’ is deceitful with his identity, and continues to perpetuate a lie throughout most of the story, but in the end, all is forgiven rather quickly and without any emotional fall-out. The premise is entertaining; the romance is passionate; the characters are energetic and flirty but the heroine’s need to ‘save’ everyone interfered with my overall enjoyment.
