His price? Pure pleasure... This is Maddy Turner's lucky day. The civilized society girl just bid on sexy rogue Jake Wallace at a charity bachelor auction and won! But Maddy knows Jake's dirty little secret. And it should keep her from trying out her new boy toy. Too bad she can't stop herself from indulging in raw, quite uncivilized sex all the same.... Jake Wallace is utterly bewitched by Maddy and utterly bewildered. How can this tantalizing woman melt so rapturously under his ministrations one moment, then turn into a haughty queen the next? He's determined to get to the bottom of Maddy's agenda. One slow, delicious inch at a time...
What I thought:
This was an enjoyable book, but I have to admit, if it wasn't free I doubt I would have given it a shot. I found out, on shelfari, this is a long series, but it looks like you don't have to read them in order.
While I liked the general story, much like the title, it was very slow going. To the point I ended up skimming through some of the slower scenes to get to a part where it started to pick up.
I liked the characters... for the most part. Almost all of them had some annoying trait, others were just flat out annoying. I could forgive most of the traits because they are human, it happens. But the misunderstanding about Jake's profession was grated by the time the truth came out.
Hey guys! I'm a big fan of reading and writing. I have been writing my own little reviews on shelfari and decided to try my own blog. I love all kinds of books, mystery, paranormal romance, urban fantasy, young adult, erotica, historical romances and just any romance book.
I own a Kindle and love browsing Amazon for free ebooks as well as getting my favorite authors and series on my portable library system. This has changed the way I read. I have gone to a couple books a month to a couple books a week.
