Trapped with a billionaire in his mysterious mansion… Can she beat him at his own game?
Lily would do anything to save the Frazer Center for the Arts—even take on the infamous billionaire Calder Cunningham.
The Cunninghams have long held a reputation for being eccentric—and secretive. When Lily breaks onto their estate, she only wants to find and reason with Calder. (All right, all right, she wants to punch him in the face, too, but that’s Plan B.) The Cunningham family was the Frazer Center’s largest benefactor for years—until Calder took over the family funds and broke the pledge contract without warning. Now the Center is on the brink of closing, and she’s desperate to save the institution her father founded. Calder is willing to consider her pleas—but for a price. Lily must indulge his whims, play along with his sexual games—all while confined to his mysterious mansion—or she’ll never get the funds to save the Center. But there’s more to the arrogant billionaire than meets the eye, and the longer they play cat and mouse, the more Lily begins to question her own feelings of hatred for the man.
5 stars!l What a surprising debut by Ember Casey! I loved this very well-written and sexy story of Lily Frazer and Calder Cunningham, two of my new favorite characters. The book follows Lily as she sets out to confront Calder over what she sees as a breach of his binding promise to fund the non-profit arts center founded by her father. He has turned down her many efforts to contact him over his decision to stop funding the Frazer Center, so she decides to take matters into her own hands and confront him in person.
What I thought would be the same, predictable, girl-meets-sexy-billionaire story turned into so much more! Of course Lily finds Calder very handsome, and at first she resists her attraction to him but then as she gets to know him better, she lets herself go wild.
By my estimation, he’s the perfect specimen of a man – why no one’s tried to carve a copy of this one out of marble yet, I can’t guess.
The two are forced by circumstance to spend time alone together at Calder’s estate, and over the course of a few days, they begin a wild and passionate relationship. Lily begins falling for the gorgeous but aloof Calder. This might sound like a predictable plot but there is so much more to this delicious book!
The passionate, dominant Calder I can handle – the one who leaves bruises on my skin and shoves my shirt into my mouth to keep me silent – but I don’t know how to deal with this gentler version of him.
Ms. Casey can write! The sex scenes are HOT and the storyline is realistic and interesting and kept me turning the pages to see where she would take these characters next. I LOVED the ending (don’t worry, no real cliffhanger) and all I wanted was to keep reading more of Lily and Calder! Fantastic debut by Ember Casey. Can’t wait for Book Two, Truth or Dare coming late Summer/Fall 2013.
