This was a 4.5 star read for me. I was absolutely pleasantly surprised about how much I loved this one. You just never really know when you pick something up for 99 pennies if you’re going to find a gem or a lump of coal…
Chase is your typical uber-rich, super hot, confident, alpha male. He gets what he wants when he wants it and up until he meets Jasmine no one has ever stood in his way or questioned him. This book starts off in hilarious form. I was reading it going wait is this really happening. Jasmine shows up for a very strange job interview but she needs a good job to help take care of her family and to make good of her Harvard education that she worked so hard to attain. When Chase starts talking indecent proposals a starting salary of almost 200k a year makes it hard to turn down, however, Jasmine is not willing to be bought.
We meet some really cool side characters in this one. It is different from a great deal of your typical trilogy billionaire types of romances in the arrangement that Chase is currently involved in. Jasmine finds it very difficult to resist Chase, but knows that his current lifestyle is not one that she can submit too easily. Drama, craziness, and heat that burns off the pages ensue and what we end up with is definitely going to be added to my favorites list of this year. I highly recommend this one if you like your stories with some interesting twists, a little gritty, and super hot. Also, while Chase had the BIGGEST ego ever, I found something soft and vulnerable about him as well. And let’s be honest while we all love an asshole one with feelings is always far more pleasurable…
“Vivian coined the term for Vibrator, Ice Cream, and Book test. Basically, if I would rather spend the night at home with my vibrator, a pint of Ben and Jerry’s Chunky Monkey ice cream, and a steamy romance novel, then he’d failed the V.I.B. test.”
“I love women–your bodies, your scents, the feel of your skin, the sound of your moans, and the luscious taste of all of you, each with your own distinct flavors.”
“He paused and tossed me a weird grin. ‘I love how you think my orders are suggestions.’ ‘I worry that you think your delusions of grandeur are reality.'”
