Book Review : 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?








A really great steamy romance!I loved the chemistry between Trinity and Dmitri!
Trinity has just been hired by Voleur to look at the accounts and find out why the profits have been low, despite the sales being high.On her first day she comes across two men perusing the accessories section and ring on watches, and after an incident , she ends up mistakenly accusing them of stealing watches. And this is how she meets Dmitri DuPont.
Dmitri usually gets whatever he wants, but he is intrigued by Trinity, who doesn't want to give him the time of the day.And he isn't one to give up easily.
Trinity doesn't believe in relationships and doesn't want to be in one.But, the attraction between them is hard to resist, especially with Dmitri determined to pursue her.There is also something fishy happening in Voleur at the meantime, and it seems like Dmitri and his friend might be involved?
What will Trinity end up deciding?

Trinity was a different heroine.Confident and intelligent at times, but also vulnerable and soft at others.She has never felt an attraction before like this one.I loved how Dmitri brought her out of her shell and encouraged her.Her past and childhood have greatly affected her way of thinking and life.But she doesn't let that stop her.She is determined to rise up above her circumstances.Dmitri has his own secrets.I loved how he was dominant,caring and intelligent too.
There is quite the mystery in this book and it had me guessing.
By the end, things moved so quickly that it was a rapid change in pace and had me confused for a while!There is still a lot to be discovered and I'm guessing we'll have another book!I have my suspicions and I believe that the title has a lot of to do with the events and certain things that happen in the story.
Let's see if I am Right! ;)


“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!
