Delaine Talbot has a secret. When a matter of life and death threatens to tear apart her family, Delaine makes the ultimate sacrifice. She auctions herself off at Chicago’s most exclusive erotic club. Now she belongs to Noah Crawford, a wealthy mogul who introduces her to a seductive feast of the senses, awakening desires she only dreamed about.
Noah doesn’t know why Delaine sold her body for a cool two mil. But it’s the perfect business arrangement. The inexperienced beauty will learn to satisfy his every sensual need, yet never touch his heart. Almost immediately their relationship generates heat—in more ways than one. When they fight, they take no prisoners. When they love, they show no mercy. When they’re together, they never want to leave each other’s arms. But soon, their intense, physical bond will take an unexpected turn—evolving into something neither has bargained for: the promise of a lasting love.
Delaine’s mother is terminally ill and can’t be treated as they can’t afford it. So she decides to sell herself to the highest bidder, hoping to make enough for the transplant her mum so desperately needs. Noah Crawford is the highest bidder, what is supposed to be a none emotional arrangement doesn’t turn out so.
Delaine is I think the most selfless person I know. To sell herself to a complete stranger to save her mother from dying has got to be one of the most heart breaking yet bravest things I’ve ever read (and that’s a lot). I mean, she’s a virgin right? Surely she would never do it unless she believes there’s no other way. Just wow, I totally love her! And her attitude? Hahaha she made me laugh my socks off so many times, especially her speech to Lexi at the ball, even I said a “Ribbit” ( you’ll have to read it to get the joke ;)). I just loved her, she’s totally amazing.
Noah Crawford. I hated that I loved him. It’s unexplainable. One minute I was all OMG he’s amazing and the next I wanted to slap him silly! How bloody clueless can one man be? His mood swings were giving me whiplash, I get the reasons behind it but rather than keeping Lanie in the dark he should have just told her instead of making her feel like sh*t.
The story was genius, I loved it! A selfless woman and an arrogant, selfish man. I laughed and humphed, wanted to commit violence and applaud. A great story, I can’t wait to read A Million Guilty Pleasures (book 2 of which I already have, thank god).
