The Intern Series by Brooke Cumberland

*Due to mature content such as strong language and explicit sexual context, not recommended for readers under 18.*

I have a monthly subscription to Kindle Unlimited, which is in some ways a good thing, and in other ways, a bad thing! That being said, I read these books as a part of the Kindle Unlimited! I borrowed the books from Amazon, and when I was done with them, I returned them! I am new to Kindle Unlimited, but I thought that was pretty cool!

These were the first books that I borrowed, and I will honestly say that I was not disappointed! 

The Intern: Vol 1

When the book starts, we meet Cecilia West, otherwise known as Ceci. Ceci witnessed her fathers murder years earlier and since then, she has been on a mission to find out who murdered him, and why! The murder was never solved. She thinks up this scheme to Intern for Leighton Enterprises. There’s a problem though. She’s only in high school! But her sister is in college. She gets accepted into the Internship and says she’s Casey West, her sister. This is her chance to search through files related to her fathers death!

Bentley Leighton is the ex model playboy, who’s father owns Leighton Enterprises. He wants no part of the family company right now, yet his father insists. Finding an intern is the last thing he wants to do.

The sexual tension in this book is so thick you can cut it with a knife! Ceci learns that not only is Bentley hotbut he also knows how to use his mouth. She decides to show him that she can counter that and that she knows how to use her mouth also!

I found that it took a bit to get to the hotness of the book, but when it finally gets there and Bentley and Ceci show exactly how attracted they are to each other, the book got super duper steamy!

The book is a quick read, because it’s part of a series (There are 4 books total) but man is it ever worth it! Take my advice on this one: Make sure you have Volume 2 when you finish! You will NOT want to wait! 

The Intern: Vol 2

This book picks up right where Volume 1 left off! What happened at the end of Volume 1 leaves Bentley wondering what Ceci wants & who she is. He really doesn’t want to have to deal with another Hannah. The ways that Bentley goes about getting the truth from Ceci are just HOT! My husband can do that to get the truth from me any day of the week, No objections here! Where are the first Volume was more flirty and fun, this one is just down right hot and steamy! Oh my – there were moments where I had to fan my face! Ceci breaks things off, Bentley doesn’t understand why so he makes a house call. I got super excited – Only to find out that Ceci isn’t home and Bentley meets the “real Casey West”. The end!

Ask my husband – seriously, I screamed at the end of the book! I had to go download the next installment – RIGHT THEN! Good thing we were home & not on the road 😉

The Intern: Vol 3

Bentley doesn’t tell Ceci that he knows the truth of her lies right away. In fact, he doesn’t know them! This book has some major anger in it! Bentley was absolutely PISSED because Ceci lied to him, He just KNEW she was going to be another Hannah. He removed Ceci from every aspect of his life.

Then he realizes that he can’t get the feel & taste of her off his mind. I was definitely rooting for Bentley and Ceci to work things out!

After the Internship

Dealing with the lavish lifestyle that Bentley leads is something completely new to Ceci. She has never been able to do that. The Paparazzi almost pulls them apart a couple different times. I don’t know how I would be able to handle life constantly under the camera and spotlight! With everything that I do being put out there and being made a mistake of! This is what happened to Ceci when she went home while Bentley was out of town for a couple of weeks! There weren’t many times in this series of books that I cried, but I can definitely say that I cried at the end of this book! Such a sweet ending! And what a surprise for Ceci’s Sister & mother!

I am very happy that I found these books thanks to another book blog who I follow on facebook! Her words were something along the lines of, “Are you a fan of 50 Shades of Grey? Then you definitely need to read The Intern!” Everyone knows I am a big 50 shades fan! I mean – around 9 months after I read it, Rosalie came into our lives 😉 Brooke Cumberland is going to be an author who’s books are constantly on my kindle!

If you like steam, explicit sexual references, erotica, mixed in with a good story line, I would highly suggest you read these books by Brooke Cumberland!

Vol. 1
She’s sexy, fierce, and a loud-mouthed know-it-all…and she’s completely off limits.

Cecilia isn’t your typical college student. Hell, she isn’t a college student at all, but that doesn’t stop her from applying for one of the biggest and prestigious enterprises in the Midwest.

She wants it. She takes it.
She doesn’t let anything get in her way when it comes to finding out the truth.

When Bentley Leighton, soon-to-be CEO of Leighton Enterprises, meets “Ceci,” he’s instantly impressed. He doesn’t have time to train a new intern. However, when he sees her that first day, his intentions begin to change.

He’s the boss. She’s the intern.
Nothing can happen. It’s against the company rules.

Then again, rules were made to be broken.

What starts as innocent flirting becomes raveled up into so much more—secrets, lies, deceit.

Vol. 2
My cock noticed her before I did.
She came out of nowhere.
Completely unexpected.

And I let her in...unwillingly.
But she gave me no choice.
She sledgehammered my thick walls, leaving me charmed by her knowledge, and seduced by her beauty.

I was captivated.

And was about to tumble down in a tsunami of lies.
Uncertainty riveted my core as my anger spread...she was impossible to forget.
After all, she was still my intern.


I felt all of those things for her at once. But only one would destroy us.

Vol. 3
I should’ve known.
I should’ve listened to my gut.
But I didn’t.
I listened with the wrong head.
And where did it get me?


She embodied them all.
Deceived her way into my company.
Lied about who she was.
Kept secrets from me after convincing me I could trust her.

Those walls she tore down are back up in full force.


She was no longer my intern.
She was no longer mine.

After the Internship
Sometimes happily ever after isn't quite what it seems.

Bentley and Ceci thought they had their happy ending, but not everything or everyone will be as it seems. Fortune and fame have a price, and when the past comes back to ruin their perfectly, stable family, how will they recover their once epic love story?

You thought their story was over, but it was only the beginning.
