Thoroughly Whipped By Tillie Cole

    4 stars

    I know Tillie Cole can do heartfelt and emotional, and I know Tillie Cole can do dark and gritty, but with Thoroughly Whipped, we see that Tillie Cole can also do funny and steamy!

    Faith Parisi is such a character. She's a writer for a sex advice column and has a good life. Then stuffy and stuck up Harry Sinclair comes back to the US and he's now her boss. She and Harry have a history and it doesn't show-case either of them in the best light.

    Oh the enemies to lovers troupe- how I love thee! Add in a work place romance and I'm in heaven. I loved Harry and Faith's romance, and watching them get to that point was the best part. I also liked that I was surprised a bit by a few things that went down (not so much the what, but more the how). It's always fun to have a little unpredictability in a story.

    I honestly love reading a book and thinking this can't be going where I think it's going... and low and behold, it is! I had such a good time reading this. I needed a read where I didn't have to take things too seriously and this hit the spot. I love when authors branch out and write something that's not their norm. It takes a lot for me to five-star love a rom-com, as I usually love the super emotional books best, but this book was a fantastic departure from Tillie's typical.

    If you're looking for a book that's sure to make you laugh out loud, that is sexy, and a whole lot of fun, pick up Thoroughly Whipped! Tillie Cole ***4.5. STARS***

    Why haven't I ever read Tillie Cole before? I must have been living under a rock. I feel so left She is one talented storyteller. If her other books are as good as this book then I am diving in.

    This was a great lighthearted read. I guess it could be classified a rom com because I definitely laughed my ass off. Faith Parisi works for a magazine and writes a sex advice column. Harry Sinclair is the heir to the publishing company and is Faith's new boss. Harry is English, staid and stuffy and he and Faith do not hit it off initially...In fact Faith insults him to his face. Faith has zero filters and gives zero f****. She will say anything and that led to some actual laugh out loud moments while reading. I loved her.

    Together they were like oil and water and just hated one another so it was so interesting to see how their relationship developed. Throw in an exclusive sex club, light BDSM, awesome secondary characters and you have a recipe for a great read. It almost has a fairy tale feeling/vibe about it and it is refreshing change of pace.

    I can't wait to re-read this one. I could not give it a five star rating because there were some proofreading errors (and I am such a But overall this was top notch writing and I highly recommend.

    Thoroughly bland story with some BDSM thrown in. Then there’s the absolutely zero chemistry between our heroine, Faith, and the pretentious hero, Viscount-call-me-Lord-soon-to-be-Duke Sinclair. 🙄🙄

    I need a drink.

    MY REVIEW AND OTHERS: can also be found on my blog:

    'THROUGHLY WHIPPED:' Is a light hearted full length, stand-alone contemporary romance novel by Author Tillie Cole.

    I've read Tillie's dark books, her sweet romances, her tear jerker, so it's only fitting that I jumped on this one!! Like seriously you have to ask yourself what can't this author write!?!

    Tillie Cole is another one of my unicorn authors, whatever she puts down on paper I will read! And this book is exactly what the Doctor ordered! This was so much fun to read, I snort laughed so many times I just about blew my nose off my face!

    With these trying dark times this lighthearted read is definitely a must read! Go on and one click this one you won't regret it!!

    I adored our heroine, her goofiness, her clumsiness, her unfiltered mouth is what made me love her the most, add in the toffee nosed stuck up Harry and all the feels these two wrung out of me I was completely in my happy place!!

    Tillie Cole Ok, this is really hard for me.. I have been battling what to rate this book as I have never rated any of Tillie’s stories below a four star. The thing is that even though the writing was just fine, and there were some laugh out loud moments... this was just an ok read for me.

    The first part of the story didn’t grab my attention at all. At times I felt like I was reading two separate stories at times as well. The scenes at “Nox” just didn’t capture my attention at all, and the feel that the setting in the club was so different than what was going on elsewhere.

    When Faith and Harry’s scenes became more prominent, I for sure enjoyed the story more. If I am being honest, I was way more interested in them than what was happening with Maître.

    All in all, it ended up just an ok read for me. I never did become enraptured, nor fully invested in the over all book.

    Thanks Steph for buddy reading this with me!❤️ Tillie Cole

    I, Faith Parisi, love my life. I have the best job—resident sex-advice diva for Visage magazine—I have the best friends, and I live in the best city in the world. Things are pretty damn fabulous. That is, until Henry “Harry” Sinclair III comes crashing back into my world like a bad case of herpes.

    I hate the way Harry’s lip curls in contempt whenever he sees me. I hate his bright blue eyes and those inexplicably offensive dimples. I hate his stuffy English accent and the stick that’s permanently jammed up his aristocratic ass. More than anything, I hate that he’s now my boss.

    But my professional prospects start to look up when a chance at writing Visage’s big summer feature falls into my lap. Success won’t be easy. I’ll need to let go of all my inhibitions—not that I have that many of those—and jump, stiletto heels first, into a hedonistic new world. An exclusive, secretive world, filled with leather, latex, and Manhattan’s elite.

    Pulling this off will take every ounce of daring I have, and every ounce of focus. I can’t afford to get distracted by anything, least of all my new boss, his arrogant mouth, or the way the ice between us seems to be slowly melting away. Thoroughly Whipped

    3.5 stars

    The cover alone had me convinced to read this book. I didn't even care about the blurb.
    This book had some great laugh out loud moments and honestly it's just what I was in the mood for.

    I love our main character, Faith Parisi. She was not afraid to speak what was on her mind and it made for some funny moments. She was fiercely loyal and confident.

    Harry on the other hand was kind and compassionate. At first, he came across as grumpy, serious and a little mean but Faith looked underneath all that and fell in love with him.

    I also liked the little side romance the author added in this book involving one of her best friends.

    The beginning just felt a little slow to me. The conversation between Faith and Harry doesn't actually start until a few chapters in. I couldn't get into the story till our main characters actually started interacting with each other. I was feeling detached from the story in the begining. But the story picks up and gets better.
    Also, some things that happened in the book were fairly obvious and anyone would have guessed it.

    All in all, this was a funny and low angst book with a lot of steam that I would recommend for a light read. Tillie Cole ★4.5★

    Love didn't come easy to me at first.

    Thoroughly Whipped is a contemporary romantic comedy full of spicey text, a complex plot, and an opposites attract (to the extreme)! With laugh out loud dialogue the entire read, Ms. Cole has crafted a hilarious Romantic Comedy with light BDSM and loveable characters. Faith Parisi is a sex columnist working hard to make her name in the news industry. Despite her crass and spunky demeanor, she has somehow stolen the attention of her conservative and clean-cut boss Henry “Harry” Sinclair III. When the demands of her job and the pulls of her heart begin to clash, only Faith can decide which direction she will go. Either choice could change the track of her life forever.

    You brought me back to life.
    Told in Faith's POV, Thoroughly Whipped is a laugh out loud hilarious read. Faith is a strong-willed woman who is clearly comfortable with her sexuality and yet, she is clumsy and awkward when it comes to walking down the street. The strong contrast between her and Harry was so liberating to witness. I could not tear my eyes away as the two learned to navigate the rough waters of living up to the world's expectations and finding the right direction to go together. Tillie Cole has always been one of my favorite authors due to her gifted writing style. She never fails to capture the heart and soul of every character she creates and introduces them flawlessly to the world (with passion and unapologetic truth). Faith and Harry were no different. This was the first time I have read a Rom-Com from Ms. Cole and I truly hope that she will write more of this style. It was light and swoony and just what the doctor ordered to put a smile on my face!
    We were from two different worlds.
    Overall, Thoroughly Whipped will appeal to Romantic Comedy fans who enjoy strong characters in the opposites attract trope. Although there were some elements of BDSM, I feel that anyone and everyone that enjoys a good laugh would enjoy this read. I look forward to more Tillie Cole goodness to come!

    Tillie Cole Goodreads otra vez borrando mis reseñas? Esta vez fui precavida.


    Perdóname la vida Tillie Cole pero NO ME GUSTÓ
    Y eso que no venía con tantas expectativas

    Y le voy a dar 2,5 estrellas porque Tillie y Harry que es lo MEJOR del libro es bien cute, sexy, blue eyes, BRITISH you know, muy mi tipo.
    Y por si fuera poco futuro DUQUE ya sea en el siglo XIX O XXI a mí me llaman como como miel a las abejas.
    Y básicamente es todo lo que me gustó o sea HARRY es que el hombre era frío y arrogante pero con un corazón blandito.

    Y lo que no me gustó, la historia, la protagonista y no ayudó que fuera contado todo por ella.
    Yo soy muy picky para la comedia en los libros, soy más de sarcasmo, humor negro o ácido y no tanto de situaciones o cosas tontas o con una protagonistas que es torpe, sin filtro y que nunca se calla a mí me desespera tal vez en pequeñas dosis y sea uno de los recursos pero no el único recurso de comedia lo compro, pero Faith lo llevó al extremo era OVER THE TOP yo así de no sé cómo Harry se puede fijar en esta mujer tan vulgar.

    Y luego la historia con lo del club de sexo y BSDM fue innecesario.
    Tampoco me gustó que la protagonista tuviera sus escenas de sexo con su amo y que se enamorara de él y a la semana siguiente cuando convive con Harry ya dice que está enamorada y yo espérame dude ¿Qué no estabas enamorada del otro?

    Sigo prefiriendo a Tillie en el Dark Romance.

    Tillie Cole has always been one of my all-time favorite authors. Her stories have either been dark or incredibly angsty. This is the first time she’s delved into the Romantic Comedy genre and I think she nailed it 100%!! I laughed out loud so much while reading this book! From beginning to end, I flat out ADORED Faith and Harry’s scorching hot and insanely hilarious enemies-to-lovers romance. ”THOROUGHLY WHIPPED” was a cross between ”Fifty Shades of Grey”, “Beautiful Bastard”, and “The Unidentified Red Head”. Did you ever enjoy reading a book so much that you wished more than anything that you could live the life of the Heroine in the story? I wanted to be Faith Parisi and as I got closer to the end, I wished that I could spend more time in her world with Harry Sinclair.

    Faith is the type of Heroine I always love to read about. She’s ridiculously funny, curses like a truck driver, a total klutz, and forever finding herself in the most embarrassing circumstances. There isn’t anything I didn’t love about her. Harry is a beautiful and pompous British bastard. He’s standoffish and a total snob, but you can tell he's a complex character with many layers. The anticipation of getting to know this mysterious man made for numerous hours of thrilling reading.

    I normally start my reviews with a favorite quote, and I did have quite a few to choose from. I chose not to in order to avoid possibly revealing any spoilers. I had such a good time reading this book and I hope that you all do as well. Tillie, if you read this review—please, please, please, don’t let this be your last romantic comedy. You have such a gift to be able to write so many different types of stories. I’d also love it if this wasn’t the last we’ve heard from Faith and Harry.

    Here are my overall ratings:
    Hero: 5++++
    Heroine: 5++++++
    Plot: 5++++
    Angst: 4
    Steam: 5++++
    Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5++++
