I received a complimentary copy of this book through Rock Star PR in exchange for an honest review.
I See. I want. I conquer. I keep.
I don’t read stories involving arrogant billionaires. However, when I discovered that Meghan March would be penning this one I decided to take the plunge. I was first introduced to her work when I read Beneath the Mask and since then I have tried to read as much of her books as I possibly can.
The first thing that got my attention was the opening lines of the blurb. I was curious to find out more the person who spoke these words. I wanted to know if he was as arrogant and obnoxious as he sounded. While reading, I discovered that he was a true reflection of his words. Creighton is the kind of man that you will love to hate. He is rich, powerful and arrogant. He likes to be in control in the boardroom and the bedroom. He had no interest in being involved in a committed relationship. He is what one would call a man whore. However, after spending one night in the arms of Holly Wix, he was willing to break his rules.
Holly is an up and coming country music star. She was new to the music industry and did not understand how cut throat it could be. As a result, she found herself locked into an ironclad contract that was designed to control her every move. The terms of the contract were proving to be destructive to her career. In a fit of rebellion, she went looking for a night of hot and unencumbered sex. It was at this point that she crossed paths with Creighton Karas. When he made her an offer that would help her to escape a situation that her music producers were enforcing on her she jumped on it. The question that is likely to pop up at this point is, did she make the right choice or is it a case of jumping from the frying pan straight into the fire?
It is my belief that this is a great start to the Dirty Billionaire trilogy. I was drawn into the story from the first line.
COUNTRY STAR JC HUGHES CAUGHT BETWEEN A COCK AND A HARD PLACE How is he going to explain this one away to girlfriend Holly Wix and his fans?
I had difficulty putting this one down. I had to know how what was going to happen, even if it meant I had to give up some of my precious sleep time. The pacing was well balanced. The story, although not unique, was riveting. What I liked about this story was that the focus was not just about the sex. It had depth and meaning. It focuses on characters that have strengths and flaws. I enjoyed the banter between the protagonists. The chemistry between them was sizzling and off the charts.
Creighton had the personality of an ass. You probably figured it out from reading the blurb. Being a billionaire does no mean you get to treat people like possessions. This is how he wants to treat Holly. He expected her to put his needs above hers. However, Holly was not willing to accept those terms. When it came to her career, she was not willing to relinquish control. I believe this trait made her a perfect match for Creighton. After awhile I found myself liking Creighton. It would appear that his behaving like as an ass may be a façade. He demonstrated that he had feelings especially where Holly was concerned.
This story contains explicit sex scenes, as such, it is suitable for mature readers only. If you can’t tolerate intense sex scenes, especially those that will take you out your comfort zone, then you may want to forego this series. However, if you are the type of reader whose philosophy is the dirtier the better, then you will enjoy reading this series.
Overall, I enjoyed this installment and I am eagerly awaiting the next book in the series. I can’t wait to find out what next is going to happen in the lives of Holly and Creighton.
