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?
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.
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.
