Publisher's Summary

On my 18th birthday my father, the senator, gives me the gift he thinks every little girl dreams of.

The man of my dreams, and the wedding to match.

Stefan Zoric is heir to an elite worldwide modeling agency. Practically a prince.

My arrangement is simple, as far as sham marriages go.

I give him my virginity, behave as the perfect wife and he'll pay for the college degree my father found irrelevant.

But I don't want to be the perfect wife.

I want him to want me the way I want him.

I want him to confide in me.

But Stefan has secrets that he holds close, dangerous secrets.

And soon I'm wondering what kind of devil have I made a deal with?

Enjoyed it but cliffhanger warning

I enjoyed this book for the most part but I wish it would at least let you know if the other books are out yet and give you informed about when the next book comes out

Not sure what to think....

Has this story held my interest...yes. However, I am just a little upset. Had I known that you would have to wait for another book to come out to get more of the story I would have NEVER used a credit. I read nothing showing this story would be in multiple parts. I would really like to know the conclusion of this story, however, I will not keep watch for the next book. If I see it when it comes out, fine. If not, that’s ok too!

Boring PG13

Where do I start. The narrator Sebastian York has about 4 chapters and the rest was Elena Wolfe. So if you like Sebastian York get another book. This book to long to get to anywhere. The only reason I listened to this book was because it was in the romance package. I am glad I didn’t buy it. 😔

I can’t stand a weak woman...UGH

This story could have been so much better. I hate that the main character was written so utterly pathetic, weak-willed, and with no kind of backbone at all...it literally made no sense to me. When I was 18 I knew ZERO 18yr olds that just rolled over and accepted how they were treated by their parents or significant others. The main lead had zero fight in her, and basically did whatever she was told (i.e. just shut up, sit there and look pretty). I’m sorry but when most young ladies reach 18 that’s when we are REALLY feeling ourselves, and like to believe that we are adults and are capable of making our own choices and decisions; but clearly not this character she is like a child and incapable of handling her own life. That is such a terrible way to write a woman (young or old) in 2019. Side note...I do love the two narrators, always have, always will.

Another book that isn’t a full book, but it’s more than a novella.

The story is not riveting but it is entertaining. Took me a while to finish as I wasn’t drawn in as I have been with the buttons series or 50 shades.

It’s also not dark like those two stories so likely harder to draw the reader in as far.

My real dislike of this book is it seemed to simply drag on and on. It was like the author was trying to stretch the book out to more than one book, rather than having a book that need more than one volume to be told. I could tell you all about the book in one line. Nothing surprising! I knew what was coming at every spot, it was predictable and just blah. But entertaining enough, if you find yourself waiting on the next great novel to fall out of some authors mind. That’s where I often find myself. And this was something to listen to/read while waiting.

Romance

This girl has no backbone. She just let them push her around. Did not like that Stefan treats her like a whore for God's sake he got a fing vergin. He is a grade a a-hole who doesn't deserve her. I won't be purchasing the other books in this series. All the men in this story are ass holes.

Overall enjoyable listen

First off, when I read or listen to a book, I do it for my own enjoyment. It's my time to suspend reality and get distracted from every day life. I don't analyze the characters too much and realize it's fiction. This one, however, had me doing just that -- analyzing. Without giving away spoilers, I had a really hard time with the fact that an 18-year-old young woman would be experiencing the things she did. She's 18!!! Please!!
Truth be told, I purchased this audiobook because it was narrated by Elena Wolfe and Sebastian York. As always, they can add to a story and make it enjoyable. They are simply the best.
When the next book in the series comes out in a couple of months, I'll get it. I hate cliffhangers, but I also hate not tying up loose ends.
Overall, it was a decent listen. If you don't analyze too much, it can be enjoyable.

painful slow...

Narration was amazing as always with these 2 but the story was painfully slow. 90% of it was her incredibly immature inner monologue.

This is book 1 and book 2 i have not read book 3 y

the narration is excellent i love Elena Wolfe and i like Sebastian York. The writing i am not sure about Book 1 first couple of chapters were good and i was getting prepared to listen to a fantastic story then it was repetitive, boring and not until the last chapter did anything happen. Then you go to book two expecting something intense to occur but this girl is 18 years old and you need to remember this when reading. i do believe that this is a young adult book as some of the things this 18 year old does and says, the way she thinks is very annoying. I came very close to returning this audible and the only reason i will finish book 2 and start book 3 is that i have nothing to listen to. If anyone can recommend a well written and well narrated book that is not for young adults please let me know.

It's quite a deal!

What happens when you turn 18 and find out your parents have arranged for you to be married? Victoria finds herself in this position at her birthday party, meets her soon to be husband Stefan and makes a deal that he will pay for her college. But is it worth the education? This story had me sucked in, wanting to find out what made these characters tick. Tori is innocent and naive, yet she holds a self confidence that lets her deal with anything Stefan hands her. Stefan is the one that I am most interested in finding out about. Older than Tori, he makes this deal to be able to take over the family business. But there seems to be more to him than meets the eye. He has secrets I want to know. I am enjoying these two as they very slowly get to know each other. Their passions for each other are high, but I am not sure it's going to be enough to keep their marriage in tact. And the cliffhanger just makes you go and load up book 2! It's a great start to this series.

Elena Wolfe and Sebastian York are such a great team, there is nothing I can say that will tell you how really amazing they are. This book features more of Tori's story, and Wolfe provides every emotion an eighteen year old could have. She adds some ferocity to her as the story moves on that I love, letting us know she is maturing. York has a couple of chapters, and you can tell by his narration that he is holding back. I can't wait to see what these two bring next.
