About A. R. Senault

I live in Southern California with my husband and two sons. For nearly a decade I worked as a general manager for Barnes and Noble Booksellers. After my second son was born, I got this wild idea to become a stay-at-home-mom, or the dreaded term, housewife. After all, non-working moms wake early, sip coffee, read novels, and enjoy yoga outdoors, while listening to nature. Sign me up!
One word to describe my last decade of existence is, delusional. When I began making seasoned breadcrumbs from the crust I cut off my kids’ PB&J’s, I knew it was time for a change. I did what anyone with unrealistic expectations would do. I went back to school for my Master’s degree.
I got the degree with my husband and sons hanging on my back and grasping for dear life onto my limbs. To survive it all, I began writing. Creating a flawed, yet perfectly endearing man was my escape. Realizing I could create more than one, was my salvation.
I enjoy traveling, reading, listening to music, and hiking. I’d rather go to Yosemite or the Sequoias for a family vacation than stand in line at an amusement park. I don’t mind getting dirty and I’ll often chose beer over wine, but I harbor an unhealthy appreciation for the smell of Nordstrom department stores, pricey sunglasses, a perfect martini, and designer shoes.
I now stand on the edge of the cliff with all the normal, non-delusional folks. I have reality firmly embedded in my foundation, and the whisper of insanity at my back to keep my writing germane.
I appreciate feedback and encourage readers to enter a library every so often to smell the books, while still embracing the wonderful Exploratorium of ebooks. Times-r-a-changing and we need to remain current, but there is no harm in remembering where we came from.

Very insightful. Deals with a lot more issues in one book than your standard romance or erotica novel, but manages to present them as an integral and unavoidable part of the story and not just put there for the sake of having a conflict. I guess it justifies the length of the novel. It can feel overly long at times, but it doesn't get stuck dealing with one issue and that helps a lot. I did have a bit of trouble wrapping my head around the man being more emotional than the woman, but it was a welcome change from the norm. The supporting characters were so diverse it's obviously a jump off point for a series.

The story was light hearted with sassy dialogues from the main couple , extending all the way to the other characters . All their insecurities , emotional hold up's and the root causes of it ,was well written by the author and not just as superficial fillers in the story . It's not a book with a emotionally distance man nor a confused women solving things with sex for a HEA . Yes this book is steamy but also with deep raw emotions dealing with grief , anger , forgiveness , God ..

From the first chapter I knew this was going to be in my top 10 favs! There is nothing like the combination of laughter, erotica and sadness that this book has to keep you engrossed in every word on the page. I love this book and cant wait for the sequels! I just cant say enough!

I fell in love with Claudette and the FF! The characters are so well written that you can't help but fall in love with their soul. This story is filled with wit and romance. I love that fact that she can break Dino so easily and all I can do as a reader is laugh so hard my family was asking if I was ok. This a beautiful tale of seduction and love and I can't wait for more

Without End is a brilliantly seductive novel that I was fortunate enough to have been asked to beta read. This is by far one of the best books I've read all year. I greatly appreciated that this author took the time to create characters with depth and emotion and a healthy dose of wit. This is not your run-of-the-mill bimbo in distress story. Claudette is brilliant, fun, and hilarious. Her delivery had me chuckling. Dino and the rest of the FF crew were a riot. I love them and can't wait to see what's in store for them next. You MUST read this book!

Positively one of the best books I have read all year! Fell in love with Claudette, she wad such a strong main character a good break from the damsels in distress scenarios. Her witty remarks were a hoot. The sex scenes were hot and steamy.and the ending nearly had me in tears ( very clever writing!!!) I definitely recommend reading!!

I already read the book twice, because I simply had to relive those sweet seductions of Dino that would melt any woman's heart, his loving words of poetry and Claudette's quick, funny and coward ways of trying to avoid falling and commiting to this man, the fantastic quirky dialogue, the steamingly hot scenes and the heart breaking desperation. Both times I felt their emotions through my skin and in my bones just as their fabulous and funny group of friends and family did. You are a great writer who creates a vibrant setting for your characters which comes alive for your readers. The text is well edited and it provides a smooth read with breath taking moments from beginning to end. Can't wait for the next one.

I loved this book, the story was so heartwarming and at sometimes heart wrenching but I wouldn't have it any other way. The heat and passion between Dino and Claudette is palpable so much that I found myself unable to stop reading, as the clock says 1am then 2am and I still can't put it down. I find myself wanting to know what's next, where is this going. The sexual tension and then the release is something to marvel at, the author has got me and I can't wait for the next book. I have recommend it to all my friends and I love that she has offered it for FREE. This new author is one to watch.

This was some of the best sex I have ever had while not actually having sex. Did I say some I meant the best. Typically after a while I tend to gloss over the sex in books because it gets a bit repetitive but this author took every hot thing you have ever heard of and kicked it up 100%. However as sexy as it was this was a funny, romantic love story. The characters are each amazing, absolutely impossible to replicate in real life but so fabulous. I loved that not only is Claudette not 21 or a virgin but she is older than he is and bloody accomplished. Very masterfully written from start to finish. It made me laugh out loud, seriously want to jump my husband's bones and a little sad at times. I cannot wait for the next installment!
