The first time it happened, it seemed like an impossible miracle. Bills were piling up, adding up to more money than I could ever make. Mom's hospital bills. My baby brother's tuition. My tuition. Rent. Electricity. All of it on my shoulders. And I had just lost my job. There was no hope, no money in my account, no work to be found. And then, just when I thought all hope was lost, I found an envelope in the mail. No return address. My name on the front, my address. Inside was a check, made out to me, in the amount of ten thousand dollars. Enough to pay the bills and leave me some left over to live on until I found a job. Enough to let me focus on classes. There was no name on the check, just "VRI Inc.," and a post office box address for somewhere in the city. No hint of identity or reason for the check or anything. No mention of repayment, interest, nothing... except a single word, on the notes line: "You." Just those three letters. If you receive a mysterious check, for enough money to erase all your worries, would you cash it?. I did.. The next month, I received another check, again from VRI Incorporated. It too contained a single word: "belong." . A third check, the next month. This time, two words. Four letters. "To me.". The checks kept coming. The notes stopped. Ten thousand dollars, every month. A girl gets used to that, real quick. It let me pay the bills without going into debt. Let me keep my baby brother in school and Mom's hospice care paid for. How do you turn down what seems like free money, when you're desperate? You don't. I didn't.. And then, after a year, there was a knock on my door. A sleek black limousine sat on the curb in front of my house. A driver stood in front of me, and he spoke six words: "It's time to pay your debt.". Would you have gotten in?. I did. . It turns out $120,000 doesn't come free.… (mere)

Over the past few months I have seen this title available at my local library and I kept overlooking it not sure if I would like it since I tend to be picky about erotic romance especially if it has kink in it. However I decided to just grab this up especially since I was in the mood for a mouthwatering alpha male and boy I was pleasantly surprised. Now I know that this book is not for everyone, and after seeing some mixed reviews on it before reading it is what made me hesitate on reading it for so long however I am thrilled that I took a chance on this one. It was delicious, hot as sin and romantically poignant at times. I love the sweet and tender moments that happen between Roth and Kyrie. The sex scenes are spicy and hot and so wonderfully done. The beginning of the story is more of a build up of sorts....building trust and communication. They slowly learn each other, and I was impressed with the way their relationship grows. Its not what you expect and I like a story that isn't predictable. Had a fun time with Alpha and can't wait for Beta and continue this pair's story. ( )

I have not read books from this author before and I was happily surprised! This book touched me. The sex scenes were hot, don't get me wrong. I love the emotion that this story evoked. It was heart wrenching. I cannot wait to read more of this series.

Synopsis:


The first time it happened, it seemed like an impossible miracle. Bills were piling up, adding up to more money than I could ever make. Mom's hospital bills. My baby brother's tuition. My tuition. Rent. Electricity. All of it on my shoulders. And I had just lost my job. There was no hope, no money in my account, no work to be found. And then, just when I thought all hope was lost, I found an envelope in the mail. No return address. My name on the front, my address. Inside was a check, made out to me, in the amount of ten thousand dollars. Enough to pay the bills and leave me some left over to live on until I found a job. Enough to let me focus on classes. There was no name on the check, just "VRI Inc.," and a post office box address for somewhere in the city. No hint of identity or reason for the check or anything. No mention of repayment, interest, nothing…except a single word, on the notes line: "You." Just those three letters.

If you receive a mysterious check, for enough money to erase all your worries, would you cash it?

I did.

The next month, I received another check, again from VRI Incorporated. It too contained a single word: "belong."

A third check, the next month. This time, two words. Four letters. "To me."

The checks kept coming. The notes stopped. Ten thousand dollars, every month. A girl gets used to that, real quick. It let me pay the bills without going into debt. Let me keep my baby brother in school and Mom's hospice care paid for. How do you turn down what seems like free money, when you're desperate? You don't. I didn't.

And then, after a year, there was a knock on my door. A sleek black limousine sat on the curb in front of my house. A driver stood in front of me, and he spoke six words: "It's time to pay your debt."

Would you have gotten in?

I did.

It turns out $120,000 doesn't come free.

I am not sure what I expected with this book, but it wasn’t what I got!
Let me start with the first part of the book. The build-up to Kyrie being “collected” for her debt is pretty good. It gets you wondering. Your interest has been piqued. Once she is taken, the book turns a little.
Mr. Roth is a private man. He doesn’t do public appearances. He is a man of many “talents”. His empire has built on legal and not-so-legal ventures over the years. He has a connection to Kyrie that he is not ready for her to know. The idea of blind-folding her is a bit extreme, but fits his personality.
Kyrie has to earn getting the blindfold off. Both parties need to be able to trust one another before this happens. I expected her to have the blindfold on for much longer than she did. Then again, it would have made the book drag.
Once Mr. Roth lets the secret out about how he and Kyrie are connected, she does what anyone would do… she flees. I was actually expecting the secret to be held for much longer than it had. I still think it should have. I almost wanted her to find out herself.
I am not going to discuss what happens after Kyrie flees from Mr. Roth; that would be giving too much away.
If you like hot, steamy sex and lots of it, this is the book for you. It is not lacking in this department at all!
Overall, even though I expected things to play out differently than they did, this book is so well-written, one cannot help but to like it, if not love it! The main reason for 4-stars instead of 5-stars is because of the sex. Well, not the sex itself, but the amount of sex. I wanted to see a little more of a mental connection than just the sexual connection between these two characters.

Based on the synopsis (and title, as this was not a supernatural book), this is so not what I was expecting. Just another porn book I had to skim through before realizing there was no real plot. ( )

I really enjoyed reading your book. This deserves a lot of audience. Why don't you publish it in N0velStar?
