Pleasure has a price . . .

Just when everything in my life is falling apart, I find a chance to turn it around--to step into someone else's glittering world, if only for a little while. I become someone new, no longer the woman defined by an ugly past, but a woman freer and bolder than myself. A woman who isn't afraid to explore every passion, even at its darkest, with a mysterious and seductive man who believes my mask is real.
Handsome and commanding, enigmatic and irresistible, billionaire Dominic Baine is an obsession I cannot afford and should not risk. He ushers me into consuming new pleasures and addicting new desires, until the line between my real life and the fantasy one I've stolen with him begins to blur.

I know I cannot keep my truth from him. I know my past will not stay buried forever. But before I can make it right, everything comes crashing down. I have deceived this powerful, dangerous man... and now there is a price to be paid.

Back when I was in my vampire obsessed stage, Lara Adrian was one of my go-to authors. I'm a huge fan of her Midnight Breed series and followed her religiously. After I moved on to sample other genres, I lost track of her books-until I saw this new offering pop up. The fact that it wasn't in the paranormal genre was an immediate draw.

My first mistake was not realizing this wasn't a standalone. That's completely my own fault for being so unobservant when I signed up, it was right there clear as day. My personal preference is that I prefer to avoid trilogies with one couple. Many times the story tends to get too stretched thin in my opinion which causes my interest to wane after book two. My second surprise about this book was that it has a light BDSM feel to it, which was not explained in the synopsis. This I tend to avoid as well. This wasn't technically BDSM, but this book was more of an introduction to this into their relationship, very gradually. The following books will have heavier notes of it.

Besides being a past fan of this author the synopsis pulled me in. Deceptions, mysterious pasts, and a woman's erotic exploration with a powerful and forbidding sounded intriguing. Avery is your average, struggling girl trying to make ends meet. She's about to get evicted from her run-down apartment when she gets the offer of a lifetime, to housesit a model's million dollar apartment. She grasps on to the opportunity with both hands. She gets to live in the lap of luxury and she gets paid thousands for it. What sane person would refuse that? When she meets aloof and charismatic billionaire, Dominic Baine who lives in the same building, she begins a treacherous game of seductive pleasure. What was once meant to be one night, turns into much more.

I let the ecstasy sweep me away trusting I can because Nick's hold on me is firm and steady. My safe mooring, no matter where he takes me.

Avery is an artist, but so far her inability to open up and show real raw emotion is holding her back. She's hiding a world of hurt and secret shame from her past and she won't allow anyone to see inside the pain that she carries. To me, she seemed repressed, not very assertive, and too mild mannered. I was never able to really connect to the heroine or her personality, she was quite the push-over with the hero from the very beginning. I would have liked to have seen her stand firm and speak her mind more rather than give a weak defiance followed by an immediate surrender to his wants.

Her secret past was very fascinating to me, there are only hints throughout the book regarding what she survived, but it's not fully revealed until the tail end of the book.

I know where the bodies of my secrets are buried, but no matter how far I've fun from them, they still hold me in their icy grasp.

I had some clue, but I never guessed the full extent of what she had survived. Dominic's past is a mystery that has yet to fully unravel and I'd be interested to see what he's hiding under that tough exterior. The next book promises to have more revelations, and a deeper exploration of Nick's dominating side. If you like dominating billionaire erotica with hints of mystery this could be the perfect fit for you. I think the writing was intelligent and well thought out, my main issues were personal preferences and won't be a problem for many other readers. Though this is a trilogy, there is not a cliffhanger at the end of this first installment, so if you're thinking of reading this, there's no need to wait for the full series to be released.
