He’s about to take control of her body…and her dream.

When River set up a fundraiser to kick start her nail polish business, she never expected someone to pay five thousand dollars just to have dinner with her. But when she meets her mysterious benefactor, he turns out to be billionaire Kane Winters—the one man from her past who she never wanted to see again.

Kane is determined to right the wrong that happened to River in college—because of him. She’s been an obsession he can’t escape…and Kane wants River more than he’s ever wanted anything. So he offers her a deal she can’t refuse: marry him and her business will be success. But River’s knight in shining armor isn’t looking for a platonic business deal. He wants their marriage to be real…in every way.

My Review

I can see many people enjoying this book.


Kane and River had a short affair in college. He approached her on a dare/bet. He took her virginity. He and his friends humiliated her. Fast forward and Kane sees River as the girl who got away. And he wants to rekindle the romance. But River is still harboring resentment for how she was treated in the past.

This story would have been enjoyable if it focused on these two characters and their developing connection. But the author kept throwing in Will and shoved the menage theme down my throat. When she kept throwing in this dynamic, she threw away my interest.


Please take my rating with a grain of salt. I'm a bit old fashioned and am not a big fan of sharing or menage themes. However, I would have enjoyed it if the author took the time to develop all three characters and their feelings and made them seem real. Made their relationship seem realistic.

I also had an issue with how there was absolutely no discussion on safety in this book. No condom. No pill. No tests!

Otherwise the story was good and I did like it for the most part.

Enjoy! xo
