Review of Access All Areas by Charlotte Phillips

The bit on the back…

After losing her elderly parents, portrait photographer Anna will do anything to avoid losing the family home – the only thing she has left of her perfect childhood.

When a friend who works at the exclusive boutique hotel, The Lavington, provides a hot tip – an A list film star is staying there with her rumoured toyboy lover – Anna comes up with a plan. A photo of them together could be the answer to all Anna’s money problems.

Unfortunately, she’s the worst paparazzi photographer on the planet and Jack, the hotel’s new head of security, back in England after globetrotting as bodyguard to the stars, isn’t about to allow a picture on his watch. No matter how cute the photographer might be…


This is the 4th book in Charlotte Phillips Do Not Disturb series. You can check out my reviews of the first 3 books in my review archives. Thank you to Harper Impulse for approving me for this title via NetGalley.

Access All Areas is about Anna and Jack. The pair couldn’t be more opposite. Anna feels ties to her family home and Jack has no intentions of every settling down. While Anna fights to save her home, Jack meets her at every turn to try and abort her mission.

One thing I really liked about the series was that although it is comprised of novellas it feels each story is a lot longer when you’re reading it. Like the others Access All Areas is set in The Lavington hotel. I like that this is the backdrop for every book in the series because it ties them all together and I love the feel of escapism from the hotel setting because escapism is exactly what I look for in reading.

The story is easy to read as the characters come up against each other. There is an instant connection of something between the readers and as it intensifies throughout the novella the relationship between the characters changes too.


Although it’s just over 100 pages long there’s a developed story, characters that are easy to imagine and read about and a bit of sexy chemistry thrown in too. Great for a weekend read or on a commute to work in the morning I can highly recommend this series for fans of Lorraine Wilson and Nikki Moore.
