Olivia and Cain Breedlove, who are brother and sister, are shocked when they have their recently deceased Father's will revealed to them. Olivia must marry within 6 months to a respectable man or she will receive none of her inheritance. If she also fails to do this, she is basically at the mercy of her brother's goodwill and he would decide how much money she gets if he chooses so. Her brother tells her that she does not have to worry, he would take care of her and make sure she would be happy. Olivia is strong-willed and doesn't want to have to rely on her brother. She asks her brother's childhood friend Morgan to help her with a solution. She wants to find a man who is sexually right for her even though she is a virgin herself. She enlists his help in attending a brothel and become a watcher of the sexual art. When Olivia was younger, she and Morgan almost had a chance at falling in love, but her father put an end to it and told him he was never to even look at her again. Morgan never stopped loving her, and Olivia thought he didn't care for her at all. Unfortunately, Olivia's plan to win Morgan's love backfires in many ways and women at the brothel start turning up dead.
This was a hot and steamy read that also featured suspense and mystery that is sometimes forgotten about in an erotica. The story was consistent and beautifully written. It didn't come off as just a sex book, but as a romance with some witty humor written also. This book kept me on the edge of my seat and I usually don't expect suspense written into an erotica. It surprised me and was believable. Just when you think you have it figured out, the author throws in some surprises you don't see coming. When the story ended, I was sad. Not because of the way it ended, but simply because the story was over. I wanted this book to keep going because I was so wrapped up in the characters.
Simply put, I have found myself a new author. I am really surprised she hasn't been picked up by some big publishing companies. She has the talent and the skills to make it big! She was also a wonderful writer to work with in the review process. I personally can't wait to read her other books now that I have found her. This is one author I will be watching for new release's in the future.
MY RATING: FIVE FLAMES! (Woot!)
Outstanding Book! A definite favorite!
