Author: Eme Strife
Two very different people.
One scandalous proposition.
I breathe out deeply, shuddering on exhale.
I can’t believe I’m about to do this…
My hand visibly trembles as I try to grip the stupid felt pen, shaking as I bring its pointed tip to the immaculate paper to sign on the line.
From the corner of my eye, I catch Dr. Frost staring at me, his own eyes intent and unwavering, and he’s eerily silent. I can’t even begin to imagine what he’s thinking. I probably don’t even want to know.
I really just need to get this over with before I panic and change my mind again.
I hold my breath as my eyes flutter closed. I feel my hand move on its own accord, gripping the pen tightly.
All it takes is two seconds.
And then it’s done.
I reluctantly open my eyes again and look down at my signature; a mesh of cursive letters sitting on the long dotted line – physical proof that I, Ramona Georgette Gallo, have agreed to the unthinkable.
The deal is sealed.
And there’s no backing out.
What a way to end a book? Four was good but this one, well, sexual tension galore when you get Ramona and Dex in a room together. Anybody have a match to spark this fire because surely its time it burned?
Start as you mean to go on Dr Frost with your idea of business. His condition on keeping quiet about what she was up to at that party becoming quite clear. My theory that he could be looking for a new sub gets stronger with each book and now this contract deal where she would be his for a determined amount of time for a large sum of money is on the table things are about to get interesting. Ramona may have told him no but the countdown has only just begun. 30 days to decide if she is going to sign and be his. Her reaction to him is so strong whenever he is near that its clear she wants him already. In a way you have a feeling she already is, she just needs to say yes. She may want him but the fact that he is married plays a big part in her holding back, well that and selling herself that is. Though the more she goes over the contract and reads what he would want to do to her the more she gets turned on. To the point where she feels she wants to submit to him the more dominating he acts. He wants her and it seems willing to do whatever it takes to get her. Seeing her at the party and finding that she wanted to work for Rainbow escorts is just a means to an end with getting her and giving her what she desperately needs in the process, and not just money.
Not as much interaction between them with this one as it’s more to do with the countdown she faces and her inner monologues. (Really wish we could get into Dex’s head too, now that would be interesting.) The debts of her grandmother and her medical bills are only getting higher but when her grandmother gets ill things are starting to sway more to yes than no. Though is the need for money just an excuse to say yes? She also seems to be getting attention elsewhere from the school hottie Jamie and Trixie’s brother Drake. She can’t seem to figure out if they are playing a game or bet of some kind as can’t see why they would be interested. Or more to the point from the moment she met Dr Frost she no longer ‘sees’ other guys.
With how book one started you know the answer to whether she signs on the dotted line or not but its the getting there that’s fun. Hold on to your hats because I think we are soon about to see Dr Frost’s true dominating side in the bedroom. Well fingers crossed anyway because I’m not sure how much longer I can wait. Mr. dark, domineering, mysterious, sexy man that he is needs to come out and play. She’s about to submit to your will so lets see where you take it from here.
