If you are into BDSM stories, you will love this one! It is not hard-core, but it plays a big part in the development of the plot.
Lucian, a dominant alpha male, who even though is burned by his ex-wife is still a considerate partner, is enticed by the vulnerability he sees in Dahlia, whom he vows to help overcome her fears. Dahlia is messed up, having gone through a really bad experience when she was younger and is trying to go through life and make something of herself. In this book, we witness her journey to freedom, to the realization that she is a deserving person, not a damaged one.
The plot has a few twists and turns, and the pace is fast; The sex scenes are sizzling hot, the characters are very well developed, and their chemistry is off the charts!
The book is a page turner. Even though it is a part of the Highest Bidder series, it is a stand alone with a happy ever after. I cannot wait to read the other two books, and also find out more about Lucian and Dahlia, as the authors have promised us.
A read I definitely recommend!
As I finished reading this book, a few thoughts jumped out about the story and its characters. First, I liked Dahlia. She was broken, but still bravely trying to find peace and functionality as she works towards her dreams. Second, I didn't like Lucian very much. Oh, he is written has hot, but he is wounded, angry, cold and in way over his head. Some of his actions are even criminal. But of course this is fiction, so there must be a HEA, no matter how unlikely it would have been in real life.
All in all, for me this fast read was just okay. However, I have already purchase the next book because I became interested in the sub-character, Isaac. I hope it will be better.
Lucian is a self made millionaire who does trust anyone except a couple of extremely close friends.
He's been taken advantage of by the closest people in his life and is cautious and doesn't let anyone
in his inner circle due to the betrayal of his family.
Dahlia is a beautiful college student and an intern at a prestigious fashion design house.
Dahlia was abused as a child and has some major issues. She looks at herself as broken.
Lucian is a Dominant and is invited to participate in an auction of submissives at his exclusive high priced
BDSM club. Meanwhile a good friend and coworker of Dahlia's also tells her about the same club and explains to her
about the auction. Lucian reads about the submissives that are being auctioned and is fixated on winning Dahlia.
He does get her and their contract is valid for one month.
From the very first they are explosive together! Their "playtime" is sexy steaming and passionate!
Highest Bidder is a fantastic book with a great storyline to accompany the D/s relationship!
I really liked the characters in the book and their personal struggles are realistic and believable because
betrayal and abuse is an everyday occurrence in society. The way Lucian and Dahlia deal with their problems
might be different than the "norm" but for them it works.
Highest Bidder is an excellent,sexy intense book!
A must read if you enjoy sexy steamy D/s relationships!
I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy.
The narration by this pair was absolutely beautiful! Each brought a depth of character that I was not expecting. Loved them separately, loved them together!
This book was so much more than I what I was expecting! I thought it would be just a hot and steamy read but it goes so much further than that. Dahlia has a painful history that can’t be ignored. Lucien as her dom recognizes there is something wrong and refuses to let it set the pace in their relationship. As a result this story delves into how this couple grow together as they work out the emotional damage that has been inflicted and rooted into Dahlia’s psyche. I loved the care and attention Lucien gave to her and her ability to finally come in from out of the darkness.
Safe from ow/om drama
