The rules:

No dating.

No sex outside of the game.

No disclosing the terms of the contract.

Rules were made to be broken, right?


Eight weeks ago I signed a contract.  One that seemed like a good idea at the time.  A handsome bachelor, luxury accommodations, and a chance to win a prize my family desperately needed.  There were some rules though.  Lots of them actually.  Follow the script, no dating, sex, or disclosing the terms of the deal.  After my self-imposed moratorium on men the last year, it wouldn’t be hard to live up to my end of the bargain…so I thought.  Until I realized the deal I’d made was with the devil…and I was in love with his dirty-talking brother.

Every girl needs three things

 1.  A flutter in her belly when she meets him for the first time. 

 Meet Cooper

 My lips brush the top of her hand lightly, my tongue sneaking out to fleetingly touch her skin.  The brief contact stirs an ache inside me.  This woman tugs at something—more than arousal—something that makes me want to slow down time just to spend a few more minutes standing here.

“Did you just…” she stammers a bit.

“Did I just what?” 

She squints at me.  “You know.”

“Do I?”

“I felt your tongue on my hand.  You…you licked me.”

I’d been dying to run my tongue along her neck all evening, although I hadn’t really meant to be so crude about it.  It just sort of …happened.  “I wouldn’t say licked, maybe just a little taste.”

“So you tasted me?”

My entire body suddenly has interest in this conversation.  “I suppose I did.  But it wasn’t nearly enough.  That brings us back to my invitation for dinner.  Tomorrow night?”

“I can’t.”

“The day after then?”

She laughs and shakes her head.  The sound makes me smile. 

“Good night, Cooper.”  She pulls the driver’s side door shut and leaves me standing there…for a full five minutes after she’s gone.


2.  A best friend to talk about him to.

 Meet Sadie



“And I kissed him when we were in his office.”

“How was his office?”

“Really?  That’s what you want to know.  Not how was the kiss or aren’t you in breach of your contract?  How was his office?”

“You can tell a lot about a man by his office.”

I gulp another unladylike sip from my wine glass.  “His office was beautiful.  Sleek, overlooking the city.  It oozed power.”

“Nice.  Bet he fucks like he owns you.”

The thought of what he’s like in bed is enough to make me lose my train of thought. 

“Go on,” Sadie prods.

I don’t continue immediately. 

“You forgot what you were up to because you were thinking of him fucking you like he owns you, didn’t you?”  My best friend smirks knowingly.

“Shut up.”  I pause.  “Anyway, I don’t know what I’m going to do.”

“Well, him.  Obviously.”

“I wish it were that easy.”


3.  A gentleman that turns into a bossy dirty talker in the bedroom.

Cooper – behind closed doors.

“You haven’t even begun to see bossy yet.  Tonight I’m going to tell you to do things, and you’re going to do them.  When I tell you to open wider, or take my cock deeper, you’re going to listen.  You know why?  Because since the moment we met, all I’ve wanted to do is make you feel good.  Hell, I don’t even need to get off physically.  Because I’m going to get off watching you every minute.  So, yeah, I’m going to be bossy.  Now let’s put the rest of this behind us.  Do you want to be with me tonight?”

After that prelude, I nod my head fast.  I’m no fool.  Who wouldn’t?

Ok let's start off by saying I'm a huge fan of Vi Keeland and the level of FanGirl squeal the erupted from me when this ARC showed up could break glass. It was a big day for this newbie book blogger! 

Kate is a beautiful determined girl with a lot of responsibilities and decides to sign up for a reality TV show called Throb, think Bachelor but with a rock star as the dude. Hoping she will get far enough to win some prize money. She was feisty and strong which Is awesome in a book girlfriend. 

I loved the happy heart this awesome book gave me. It was exactly the kind of book I needed for the mood I was in, it's a beautiful thing when that happens. I needed Cooper Montgomery and his sweet domineering ways, the way he gives her a choice before her alphas all over her... Sigh. I loved him instantly. He knew what he wanted and he fought for her. It was such a relief he wasn't some asshole Manwhore! He was the perfect gentleman book boyfriend we all swoon over. 

Then there is Flynn (FYI - his book is next called, Beat, coming Summer 2015) I didn't like Flynn... Like AT ALL. I got a manwhore vibe off of him no matter how sweet he appeared to be. Keep in mind that I'm incredibly untrusting of all RockStars in books LOL... I've been hurt before, I don't trust any of the bastards! 

...Anyways.... ;)

This being a spoiler free zone I won't go into it too much other than it was a fantastic falling in love story. I was swept up in these two, I rooted for them, I got all hot & bothered for them. Cuz damn... The sex was hot! He was alpha without feeling like he was suffocating her. He was interested in her life not just in bending her over and ramming her hard until she can't walk the next day. Though let's be honest we all know there was some of that too. 

I liked the whole Hollywood aspect of it, as well as the scripted Reality TV stuff, I found it really interesting! I've always wondered what it was like behind the scenes. 

All in all I loved it. I thought it was smart, sexy and gave me a happy love glow when I was finished. Five Stars for sure!
