Struggling artist Avery Ross is barely scraping by. Bartending at a trendy New York City restaurant for an overbearing boss and two weeks away from losing her apartment to a condo developer, she's desperate for a break. So when she's offered a temporary housesitting job, she takes it.
Living at one of the poshest addresses in Manhattan is like entering a new world - one that catapults her into the orbit of billionaire Dominic Baine, the darkly handsome, arrogantly alpha resident of the building's penthouse. What begins as a powerful attraction soon explodes into a white-hot passion neither can deny.
Yet as scorching as their need for each other is, Avery doesn't expect Nick's interest in her to last. Nor does she dare to dream that the desire she feels for this scarred, emotionally remote man could deepen into something real. For Avery has secrets of her own - and a past that could destroy her, and shatter everything she and Nick share.
Contains mature themes.

"For 100 Days is a sexy, sizzling, emotion-filled delight. It completely blew me away!" (J. Kenner, New York Times bestselling author of Release Me)
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Firstly a personal rant, there should be big red warning signs on books with cliffhanger endings because I absolutely HATE them (and I know I'm not alone)... by the time the second book is released (probably December for this) I've forgotten the plot intricacies of the previous book. And, as this is the 1st book in Lara Adrian's new 100 TRILOGY, chances are that book 3 hasn't even been written yet, and so I may have to wait for perhaps a year before the story concludes... and patience, when it comes to awesome gripping romance stories, is just not in my DNA. So, be warned - there'll be a long long wait in between books. (rant over)
Lara Adrian throws everything she's got into her very descriptive scenes and you can feel the sizzling electrifying chemistry as soon as Avery Ross and Dominic Baine meet. Avery's a struggling bar waitress, about to be evicted, has tortured haunted memories, guilty secrets and a protective shell built high all around herself and Dominic, the handsome, sexy, charismatic Billionaire, also has secrets and mysterious scars... and together these two are simply combustible. It starts off as just sex but soon morphs into much more even though neither one will say it - but it's a relationship built on hot sex, sensual lazy days, lies and secrets so you know that at some point it's all going to come tumbling down around them. And they both know they're holding back - holding back deep dark secrets, holding back the chance of a future together... and holding back on the day it'll tear them apart.
I love LA's style of writing as she draws you into each scene and the Hero was so Alpha and hot yet caring and kind that I actually felt jealous for a fictional character as Avery experienced 100 days with Dominic. But it was 100 days of pleasure built on secrets and lies and he's happily plotting his 100 Nights of Revenge (title of next book) - in his bed when Avery gets a mysterious and ominous phone call that could destroy everything. This is told from Avery's POV, it has some hot light BDSM scenes that hint of more to err come, likeable main and secondary characters and the narration was great.
Worth a credit? 100 x YES and, IMO, I know the use of my credit on a Lara Adrian book is always a wise choice for me. However, I regret the purchase - not because it wasn't interesting, sexy, romantic and thoroughly enjoyable - no, it's because of the unexpected cliffhanger ending to a Trilogy which means that it's going to be a frustratingly long long wait before the HEA finally comes into sight.... and now I'm repeating myself.... ARGHHHH!!
For 100 Days drew me right in & held me captive until the very end. Summer Morton's exceptional performance brought the author's words to life in a spellbinding manner. Riveting !!!
