From USA Today bestselling author K Webster comes a brand new forbidden romance that’s going to leave you speechless.
Money can buy anything. And anyone.
As the head of the Constantine family, I’m used to people bowing to my will. Cruel, rigid, unyielding—I’m all those things.
When I discover the one woman who doesn’t wither under my gaze, but instead smiles right back at me, I’m intrigued. Ash Elliott needs cash, and I make her trade in crudeness and degradation for it.
I crave her tears, her moans, her submission. I pay for each one. And every time, she comes back for more.
When she challenges me with an offer of her own, I have to decide if I’m willing to give her far more than cold hard cash. But love can have deadly consequences when it comes from a Constantine. At the stroke of midnight, that choice may be lost for both of us.
Series: Cinderella #1
My Rating: ★★★
I must admit, I’m not a huge reader of fairy tales re-written, actually, this might be the first, but seriously, everything that promises to be smutty smut smut, I’m all over it like white on rice. So obviously I loved it for that.
Having said that, I’m not sure how to feel about this book now that I’ve finished it. But I can tell you I was absolutely turned on. Having said, sexual humiliation is not my jam. I’m more of an exhibitionist. But I’m not going to lie and pretend that the way it was written here didn’t do anything to me, because it did. I loved it.
In this Cinderella story, instead of evil sisters, there are triplets step-brothers that even I was afraid of. The last chapter when she was getting ready to go to Winston’s birthday party, I speed-read the scene because I was afraid to see what they will do to her.
Anyway, the story had a lot going on in it; age-gap romance, broody asshole hero and sassy heroin and SOME CRAZY ASS KINK. So if any of this speaks to you, then it’s definitely a must read. I’m guessing you’re wondering why I’m rating it 3* then. Well, honestly, I didn’t feel the chemistry between the couple. While the Winston is claiming to be feeling a chink in his mack-daddy-amour ways and supposedly catching feelings for Ash, I just don’t buy it. I didn’t feel it, he certainly didn’t come across as though he felt it. Similarly, Ash is certainly feeling smitten but again she comes across as just having daddy issues and not necessarily adult-kind of loving. But make no mistake, I will be reading book 2. The story certainly has me hooked that I can’t wait to find out what happens next.
