Sexual Intensity: hot
I have no idea why she auctioned off her virginity for a cool mill. Regardless, I'm now the proud new owner of a perfectly intact hymen. A lot of good that will do me. I have certain tastes, certain sexual proclivities. My cock is a bit more discriminatory than most. And training a virgin takes finesse and patience - both of which I lack. Sophie Evans has been backed into a corner. With her sister's life hanging in the balance, the only choice is to claw her way out, even if that means selling her virginity to the highest bidder at an exclusive erotic club.
When Colton Drake takes her home, she quickly learns nothing is as it seems with this beautifully troubled man. Being with him poses challenges she never expected, and pushes her to want things she never anticipated. A sinfully seductive erotic romance where everything has a price and the cost of love is the highest of all from New York Times & USA Today bestselling author, Kendall Ryan.My Review:
Ooh, the set-up for this story was so good...so forbidden and intriguing especially given the way that things worked out between Colton and Sophie.
She...needs money to pay for her twin sister's experimental cancer treatment. She's still a virgin so she auctions off herself to become someone's love slave for 6 months.
He...has an interesting back story that's slowly revealed, but I loved Colton so much. He could have been a real jerk, but no matter how he tries to hide it...he's a good guy.
Although the story is set up to be really sexually spicy, this installment isn't as much as you would think. Honestly, I liked that about the story. Despite their beginnings, their relationship develops very slowly and honestly. I loved that so much. It made the story even more intriguing.
Warning: this book ends in a cliffhanger. If you're paying attention, it's not that much of a shock (at least it wasn't to me). The good news is that this is a very short story, so you can immediately grab the next book and read on. In fact this very easily could have been released as a single full-length novel.
