When Emily Wayborn goes home to visit her mom while on hiatus from her hit TV show, she receives a voicemail from her former best friend, Amber. Though the two were once notorious party girls, they haven’t spoken in years. Although the message might sound benign to anyone else, Amber uses a safe word that Emily recognizes, a word they always used to get out of sticky situations during their wild days. And what’s more chilling than the voicemail: it turns out that Amber has gone missing.
Determined to track down her friend, Emily follows a chain of clues that lead her to the enigmatic billionaire Reeve Sallis, a hotelier known for his shady dealings and play boy reputation. Now, in order to find Amber, Emily must seduce Reeve to learn his secrets and discover the whereabouts of her friend. But as she finds herself more entangled with him, she finds she’s drawn to Reeve for more than just his connection to Amber, despite her growing fear that he may be the enemy. When she’s forced to choose where her loyalty lies, how will she decide between saving Amber and saving her heart?
This is my first book by this author and WOW, what a book to start with!
Disturbing, provocative, chilling… I could go on and on, but I don’t want to spoil it for you.
What I will say is this:
Do not go into this book expecting to agree with/empathise/understand the main character’s reasons. Quite frankly, I didn’t, but I found the story woven so well that I didn’t need to understand or like either one, I just had to go along for the ride.
If you like your books dark, with a good splash of erotica, be prepared to be thrilled.
This book will grab you from the prologue and not let go.
I cannot wait for the next book in the series.
Now I need to go and have a little lie-down!
5 Spank me hard and call me a glutton stars!

NY Times & USA Today Bestselling author Laurelin Paige is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Game of Thrones and the Walking Dead, or dreaming of Michael Fassbender. She is represented by Rebecca Friedman and Friedman Literary.
