Amelia is at rock bottom. She is losing her home because it was sold to a developer and has lost her job but there is a silver lining whereby she is moving to Florida and reconnecting with an old friend. Things are looking up when she meets an attractive man on the beach. Jamie is a slightly jaded billionaire who needs something in his life. When his friend invites him to go to a masquerade with an auction, Jamie acquiesces and attends. Unbeknownst to him, Amelia is attending the same event at the prodding of her friend. Jamie is immediately attracted to the masked woman and bids on her. Amelia is surprised when she sees Jamie at her hotel room. After an amazing night, Amelia asks Jamie out only to be rebuffed. After being unable to get her out of his mind, Jamie starts back peddling to get Amelia to give him a second chance. However, things do not go as expected and they wind up under arrest. Will Jamie be able to cover up his indiscretion? Will Jamie and Amelia get their happily ever after? This is one well written story but it feels as if more could have been added to give the storyline more depth. I look forward to reading more from this author.
I volunteered to read an arc of this book.
I love Charlotte Byrd, especially her Auctioned to Him series, so was excited to claim an ARC of Bought. I knew if it was anything like Auctioned to Him, I would love it. Bought is the story of Amelia and Jamie and involves an auction. Even though I found it to be different from Auctioned to Him, I still loved it. Amelia is a down on her luck girl who lost her mom to illness, got fired and was sorta evicted so she has moved to Florida in search of many things. Jamie is a billionaire, hedge fund guy who also seems in search of something, but not too sure of what it or who it is, until he meets Amelia. Amelia’s friend, who she is staying with, gets a secretive invite to a masquerade auction and gets Amelia to go along and even though she’s hesitant, she winds up joining the fun and sells herself along with her virginity. Jamie wins her at the auction and even though they get down and dirty, you can tell it should develop into more. I found the beach scene to be a bit unrealistic, but since it’s romance and sexy scenes, it didn’t matter or take away from my enjoyment of this book. I felt like the ending was a bit rushed or incomplete, but again, I enjoyed reading it and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it; I'd give it a 4.5 if i could.
It is written in dual POV which gives the readers both thoughts and feelings of the main characters. I would have liked that Jamie had more chapters where he was the headcharacters.
The story starts of very slow and with a very long intro. It almost gets boring.
When the characters meets there is instant attraction and connection. Amelia has to auction herself off at a mascarade auction to get money for payment. Jamie buys her. They have great chemistry and some hot scenes. I think it is a bit weird that he not sees she is a virgin when doing the act. I also think it is a bit weird that they shower after they have been to bed. With all that sand I would have done it before.
The story is fast-paced and has heartbreak, regret, passion, drama and paparazzi in it. Some twist that gives it the four star review.
A very sweet story with humor, sighs, lust and love. I can only recommend this if you like to read romances with a twist.
I received a free copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.
