Final rating 2.5 stars!
The beginning and middle of the book were 4.5 - 5 star rating.
The author did a great job of developing the characters and the story-line was interesting and good.
I would definitely rate this book as erotica with some Dom/sub.
The characters were complex, funny, smart, and yet still portrayed as 'real'.
The author had me engaged and eagerly anticipating to see what was going to happen next.
...then it seems at the 85% mark - the story got rushed, and all of a sudden I'm at the epilogue thinking WTF?
Did I miss something? I can't really be sure how much times lapses from the end of the story to the epilogue (I think 2 years?). With a major question being asked in my head (a major issue that the H/h discussed, but the readers weren't privy to the outcome)
Anyone who knows me or follows my reviews knows that a sudden, rushed ending is a HUGE pet-peeve of mine.
I really HATE finishing a story (especially a contemporary romance) feeling mad and a little betrayed by the author.
I had such HIGH expectations for this story... and then the story ended.
Charlotte's husband of ten years has just left her. She's been a stay at home mom with the three children she loves and now has to figure out what to do with her life. She gets the idea of becoming a sorta high class escort to make money in order to pay her bills and feed her family. Her first client is Mitch, but Charlotte ends up getting more than she bargained for.
Mitch is the CEO of a very successful business who travels often and for months at a time. He doesn't have time to date, but would like a girlfriend to spend time with when he can. He runs an ad for this position and its Charlotte who answers the ad. The minute he sees her in the bar, he's floored by his attraction. After a drink, they go upstairs and he describes the position he'd like her to fill. He wants her under contract to be at his beck and call when he wants her. He'll pay her very well and in return, she'll see him exclusively and will agree to never developing feelings for him. Yeah, Mitch gets more than he bargained for also.
Mitch has a reason he doesn't do relationships. We learn about his reason and its really sad, but we don't get this until after he realizes he's falling for Charlotte and runs. Charlotte's been hurt before, and she's not interested in it happening again. Will these two realize what they have and fight for the other??
I adored Mitch. He did make me mad, but the man can apologize. He's really a sweetheart underneath his tough exterior. Charlotte is awesome. She's a great leading female character. Not whiney and not stupid. She's bright and funny. She has a hilarious group of friends that will make you laugh. But honestly, the funniest parts of this book are the text message conversations. Especially the ones between Charlotte ans Mitch. Priceless!
Overall it's a really great story. It's told by both Mitch and Charlotte which is fun because it always helps to get both character's POVs. Even though it is book one in the series, it's a standalone. The next book is about CiCi, Charlotte's sister and Kyle, the VP of Mitch's company.
READ THIS!!!!! its Fantastic!!!!!!!!!!
Charlotte and Mitchel (Charley and Mitch) meet in somewhat unconventional circumstances.
The story starts with us meeting Charley, who finds herself in dire straits, money wise, after her husband leaves her to bring up their 3 children alone.
She needs money and she needs it fast, and it comes in the rather attractive shape of Mitchel Colton and a very unconventional contract. From the very first meeting these two were on a collision course of lust to love, and although they fell quickly, it felt real and right for them.
However the course of true love does not run smoothly when there is a contract involved, 3 little people and secrets from the past that resurface to put a spanner in the works.
Mitch and Charley together were hot, hot, hot and the banter between them hilarious. Charley’s friends the GEG’s (Green Eyed Girls) were on another level when it came to innuendo and feisty fun banter, and I loved each and every one of them. We meet CiCi, Charley’s sister and we’ll be seeing more of her in the not too distant future.
“Cici… when did you move in here?” I ask sarcastically
“I like it here. Nobody likes me at my house,” she says almost depressingly.
Ceese… you live by yourself!” I roll my eyes and Mitch chuckles
Charley’s family were adorable, if not challenged in many ways, but you get on with it, because that’s what girls with big panties do. And that is exactly what Charley did.
The book ends perfectly for their story, although there are some unanswered questions, which will be addressed in later books in the series, so be patient, good things come to those who wait.
Jac did it again, each book she delivers just gets better and better, and I can’t wait to meet more of CiCi.
