Publisher's Summary

A million dollars for a year of marriage...

Jasmine Lee is screwed. She can barely afford her rent, much less her father’s medical bills. She needs cash - fast - or she’s going to lose her dad. 

Enter Shepard Marlowe. The tech mogul needs a wife, and he’s willing to pay. A million dollars for a year under his beck and call. Her freedom for her father’s life. It’s a good deal. Even if the Shepard is a beast. Angry, guarded, overbearing...and more irresistible than Prince Charming. 

How is it possible she craves someone so merciless? 

His touch sets her on fire. His promises wind her tight. And when he issues dirty demands, her body begs her to obey. She can marry the bossy billionaire. But can she fall into his bed without falling in love with him?

Boring

This book was a huge yawn for me. While I’m not a fan of Lance Greenfield and can only tolerate Grace Grant reading certain kinds of books, this story was not for me. I never found myself liking either main character. They were both one dimensional to me. As always I was surprised at all the good ratings but thought I’d like this story. I found it lacked any real warmth to grab on to as Shepherd and Jasmine found their way to each other. SAVE your credit. There are way better books out there.

Was disappointing

I struggle with this book I wanted to like it but I had trouble finishing had to restart chapters sometimes. The Narrators were really amazing as always. Not my favorite book of Crystal

Great Second Chance in Love

This is the third book in the Dirty Rich Series, but this was my first Crystal Kaswell's book. Jasmine and Shepard's story is a great second chance at love. Shepard is a strong alpha man, dominant, secretive, with a dark past. Jasmine is a strong woman, loving and supportive. They share a strong and sizzling chemistry. The storyline has a great pace, filled with twists and turns, steamy light BDSM scenes, mystery and secrets. Lance Greendield and Grace Grant did a great job with the narration. I enjoyed it. Looking forward to listen to the other books in the Series. I was given a free review copy of the audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Wow and not in a good way.

I LOVE marriage for convenience romance. They are my favorite trope. This one however, was just bad. The performance of the narrators was fantastic. But the characters had no depth and the plot appeared to be half planned with an abrupt HEA. Our heroine started out saying she was going to be strong, make him work for her, but then she caved without him even putting in any effort. I can’t even say that the spice overshadowed the plot because that was just sprinkled in and it was just a lot of BJs with a couple full action scenes.
Definitely wasn’t a book for me. The development was just not there.

I struggled to care.

This was a difficult audio book to get through because of the Shep. I truly struggled and very nearly returned to get my credit back as I found I just didn't care. BUT - SPOILER ALERT - the author explained the reason behind character she created and it made perfect sense. Now I will shelve this book for a while and listen again with a more open mind.

One less star for being too soft on the criminal

I had to listen to this story a second time to be able to appreciate the hero and heroine and their relationship.

I took away one star for the story because it pissed me off that the criminal got off easy (IMO) despite the Shepperd - Jasmine HEA.

The narrators were great, no issues there.

You can have too much tea🤷🏽‍♀️

Love the story line but got tired of all the discussions about tea, who cares! Also I would have loved to hear that the child molester was caught but overall it was a good read.

Let this husband steal your heart

Wow. This story will not only grab your heart but your soul. This is not my first Crystal Kassel story . The beauty of this story shows that there is more than one way to suffer abuse.

Jasmine also has a hard time in life , her father is sick , as usual the bills are slowly eating away her money . Not only that Jasmine has one wish , that wish is to be on stage .
Shepherd and Jasmine meet up again after years apart, they at one time were a couple . Now when they meet up again Shepherd offers Jasmine a deal , the deal is to become his wife .
Grab this and see do they become one , a wedding . Does Jasmine get her wish , going up on stage .

Both narrators Lance and Grace performance was great. They did this story and Characters great. The tone for the characters were great. Strong , smooth and clear.

A steamy second-chance romance

This is supposed to be an adaptation of Beauty and the Beast and I suppose I can see it. Jasmine is forced to tolerate Shepard because she needs the money to care for her sick father. However, really, Shephard and Jasmine were high school sweethearts so there's a past there. Jasmine broke up with Shepard was an alcoholic. He's not now and he's rich and successful but he has a secret. The secret is not revealed for the majority of the book but I thought it was easy to guess. It made Shepard definitely much more sympathetic to the readers and I was looking forward to them getting their HEA. Note, this is super steamy with sub/dom themes (fanning myself) and it was overall, an enjoyable, fun book. I give it 4.5 stars.

i borrowed the ebook from KU and requested and received the audiobook for review. I really liked Lance and Grace overall. I thought that their voices for the other characters, especially those who were female/male, respectively, were a little unnatural (but still, that has to be the most difficult part of the job) and sometimes I had difficulty determining who was speaking but in general, they did a good job with telling the story.

love Crystals books but sadly this ones not for me

This is my first ever book that I just DNF! If I’m getting bored from a book I will normally will try to hang on for dear life hoping to find something that will bring the back to life but with this one I just couldn’t do it and chapter 31 was my limit. I have 3hrs and 21mins left from this audiobook but I just can’t. It’s unfair of me to go into detail and spoilt it as I may not like this particular book but others may love it but I didn’t even get any spark, sexual chemistry or intimacy between these two and it just made the sexual interactions feel wrong. I will be returning this for another book

Fantastic listen!

Do you ever get over your first love? Shep is in need of a wife, and it has to be his ex, Jasmine. Jasmine is in need of money to help with her father's medical expenses. These two enter a pact that can only lead to one thing. A second chance. But this is not your typical second chance romance. Crystal Kaswell has woven a delicious tale of love, incredible passion and redemption. Jasmine is such a force, very devoted to her father, but she her heart knows what it wants. Can she align her brain with her heart? And will it be in her best interest? You can't help but love Shep. The ultimate bad boy with issues that make you want to help him. But can he be helped? Will this second chance be wasted? It's a great listen.

Lance Greenfield and Grace Grant are amazing narrators, and they bring this story to life. I don't think there could be a better fit for Shep. Greenfield has that bad boy growl, sex appeal and just nails his personality. Grant always finds her target and Jasmine has definite strength to her, but a melting that Grant eases into. They are fantastic together.

Probably a good story

This is probably a good story but I only got to chapter 4 because I can't stand the narrators voice, or the way she reads her lines, broken. who speaks like that really.

Wow

Loved that she wouldn’t let his dark take him under. Whilst he was trying to protect her. What started out as a deal , even though they had previously loved each other, soo turned into a HEA.
Narration was awesome too.
