This is Maddy Turner’s lucky day. The civilized society girl just bid on sexy rogue Jake Wallace at a charity bachelor auction—and won! But Maddy knows Jake’s dirty little secret. And it should keep her from trying out her new boy toy. Too bad she can’t stop herself from indulging in raw, quite uncivilized sex all the same….

Jake Wallace is utterly bewitched by Maddy—and utterly bewildered. How can this tantalizing woman melt so rapturously under his ministrations one moment, then turn into a haughty queen the next? He’s determined to get to the bottom of Maddy’s agenda. One slow, delicious inch at a time…

I found this one in the free reads section on the Kobo website. I visit there frequently to see what little gifts Kobo is giving out. So the synopsis doesn’t really do it much justice. There is actually some romance in this one, as apposed to just sex. The plot allows for some funny scenes. I’ll give you a little extra info that the synopsis does not. Maddy attends the bachelor auction to bid on the man her step-mother has her sights set on. According to his bio, he’s basically a male prostitute. However, there was a slight mix-up, and the handsome paramedic–who, of course, is head over heels for Maddy at first sight–can’t understand Maddy’s coldness. Maddy, thinking him a prostitute, is very wary of all his charms. This kind of mix-up really lends itself to the humorous scenes that follow… and the very sexy scenes.

As in most books of this genre, there could have been a little more development in their romantic relationship, but I guess it achieved what it set out to achieve. It’s a sexy, funny and romantic story. That’s all I can ask out of a free book. The sex scenes flowed nicely. The language seemed to fit the characters and their story well.

Prude Filter: This book contains profanity, mild violence, and sexual content. 18 and up, please!
