If you receive a mysterious check, for enough money to erase all your worries, would you cash it?
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?
It turns out $120,000 doesn't come free.
Loved it. And yes, I felt like I had a little 50 shades or Crossfire series flashbacks, but that was only because he is a billionaire who has to have control. That is where the similarities end. This story takes on a very unique start, very mysterious. Who in their right mind would get on a plane blindfolded to go who knows where? Talk about taking a leap! And that's where it gets even more interesting. Roth is a man who knows exactly what he wants and how to get it. Their "game" is sensual and hot enough to set the pages on fire. Along with probably one of the most sexual scenes I have ever read, there are secrets that leave you saying, "I didn't see that coming". Great storyline, awesome chemistry between them that really draws you in and keeps you reading page after smoking page. My only complaint (hence the 1 star drop), is that some of the scenes, even though totally hot, the "dirty talk" crosses over into vulgar for me personally. I am no prude and enjoy passionate dirty talk, but it sometimes seemed a little crass and not sexy at all. That being said, I have already pre-ordered the next one!
