Amazon Tour and Review for More Than Just A Pair of Pumps by Alexandra Iff

Title: More Than Just A Pair Of Pumps
Author: Alexandra Iff
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Gutsy and stubborn 24 year old Trinity Parker is more than thrilled when she lands a job in a top New York fashion store, crunching numbers in the back office. As luck would have it, it’s on her first day there that she ends up heroically foiling a robbery. Or so she thinks.
The man she thought was stealing, Dimitri DuPont, a handsome and rich distinguished gentleman, insists Trinity apologizes to him for her assumptions. In fact, he demands more.
Dimitri is a man one cannot say no to. So she doesn’t. She succumbs.
Soon, her life becomes a tangled web full of lies and deceit and Dimitri DuPont, the one person who’s been there through it all, takes her out of her comfort zone and leads her on a voyage of discovery.
Will he be the anchor that she needs or the catalyst that blows her world apart?


I was gifted a copy of More Than Just a Pair of Pumps by Alexandra Iff for an honest review and I have to say " Thank You" to the author or PA that brought this to my attention. As soon as I read the first page around 9 p.m , I found myself not wanting to put it down it was around 3 a.m. and 75% of the story that I was taken in by sleep. I picked up right were I left off in the morning and I am a very happy reader.

In this story we have  strong, stubborn, frustrating and beautiful Trinity Parker who is asked to look over the finances at a New York fashion store, she finds that the numbers don't add up and the people that she is surrounded by seem sketchy  with the business aspects. From the first day on the job Trinity never expected that the VIP customer Dimitri DuPont, who she accused of stealing would be a mental, physical, and sexual distraction to her job. Will she be able to look beyond all her feelings and gorgeousness that this man has added to her life so that she may do the job she is contracted to do?

Dimitri DuPont, he is a well known gentlemen among the ladies and businesses. He doesn't let a little embarrassing robbery accusation keep him from the one woman he wants. Trinity the new hire may have accused Dimitri of stealing but he never expected her to steal his heart and mind. I have to say that this character is sexy as hell and one that will be hard to forget. DuPont's cockiness, arrogance and sexiness may make it hard to see and think straight so when his lies seem to sneak up, it may just be to much for Trinity to handle. 

More Than Just  Pair of Pumps has a sexy fairy tale tone to it due to the characters feelings of attraction within hours, a gorgeous man and strong-minded woman, the love of a pair of heels and friends that are there when needed. The characters lies and deceits will keep you guessing til the end. This is one enjoyable 5 Star read that I found myself  not wanting to end.


“Look at me Miss Parker. I want to see your face.”
I’ve stopped breathing, and I don’t know what else to say. I hear him moving closer, sitting beside me.
“Hey,” his fingers gently pinch my chin, and slowly pull me to him. My face is bright red, I feel it burning, and the moment his dark eyes land on me, I’m pulled into the void.
“You are beautiful.”
Caught in the carnal web spinning around me, ever so slightly I move closer, and stop breathing again.
“I would love to kiss you, Miss Parker.”
“Do it.”
Inaudible words spoken in a moment of madness; my eyes close and I fall victim to his ways.
“Tell me how you want it…” held in his strong grip, he gingerly rubs our lips together. “Like this,” he nips my lower lip playfully. “Or like this,” his tongue gently glides over the corners of my lips and, as if spellbound, my mouth opens… Wanting, no, needing his kiss. “Or…” he unexpectedly inserts his tongue deep inside my mouth, taking me by surprise and expelling the remainder of doubt I had. I moan; helpless, I’m at his mercy. He’s holding my jaw firmly in his hand and he is leading this game. I…I’m just sitting here, drowning in what seems like a dream full of endorphins, I never want to wake up from.
He pulls back just as fast, and, breathing raggedly, he stays there, on the precipice of our kiss, breathing in my air.
“Please… Don’t stop…” I hear myself speak. I’ve never had a kiss like this. So alive. So possessive. So…carnal. He kisses me again with so much fervor I mold into him. My body…I feel it wants more. It moves forward, into him. His body reacts, but I feel his hands ease off, subtly pushing me away from him. Separated by only the air, although connected in so many other ways, we are both panting.
“If I don’t stop now, I’m not going to be able to stop myself.”
My pupils are dilated, my nostrils flared, I’m breathing like I’ve run a marathon.
“Dimitri…,” I lean back, trying to catch my breath.
“You are one hell of a kisser, Miss Parker.”
“I-I’m sorry. I don’t know what came over me.”
Fully absorbed by the memory of our kiss, I’m still high.
“Do you always kiss like that?”
“I don’t kiss at all. Um.. I mean… I don’t know. How did I kiss?” What is wrong with the way I kiss?
“It felt so…” he closes his eyes, knitting his eyebrows. “Perfect. It was like…Like you were hungry for me. Like you haven’t kissed anyone in years.”
“You are my first kiss in six years.”
Alexandra, a singing and dancing force not to be reckoned with, especially when she holds a microphone, is someone who imagined her life would be just like in the film 'Grease'. So she found her 'Danny', married him and right at this moment they are dancing the night away.
She is known for her love of fast cars and her pumps, which she has way too many pairs of. Correction, you can never have too many pairs of pumps!
