When Emily Wayborn receives an answerphone message from her former best friend Amber, she knows something is seriously wrong. Emily hasn't spoken to Amber in years, and when Amber uses a safe word in her message that Emily recognises -- a word they always used to get out of sticky situations during their wild partying days -- she knows Amber needs her help. But when Emily tries to find her, she discovers that Amber is missing.
Determined to track her down, Emily follows a chain of clues that lead her to enigmatic billionaire Reeve Sallis. Renowned for his shady dealings and playboy reputation, Emily is convinced that Reeve knows something about Amber's disappearance. To try and discover the truth, Emily sets out to seduce him. But when she's forced to decide where her loyalty lies, how will Emily choose between saving Amber and saving her heart?
If you devoured Fifty Shades and Sylvia Day's Bared To You series, you will love the latest intoxicating, passionate and addictive novel from New York Times bestseller Laurelin Paige.
Paige (Find Me) treads the gothic side of contemporary erotic romance in this discomfiting series launch. TV actor Emily Wayborn is distressed when her former friend and mentor Amber goes missing after leaving her a strange voice mail message. Emily tracks down Amber's ex-lover, the wealthy, domineering Reeve Sallis, and she seduces him for information, suspecting he's behind Amber's disappearance but willing to take the risk. Amber looms large in Emily's mind even after a six-year separation; her possible fate and the suspicious death of Reeve's lover Missy remain a dark undercurrent throughout. Emily revels in Reeve's potential danger to her, both thrilled and tormented by her overwhelming desire for Reeve's possessive actions and sexual forcefulness, while finding it difficult to accept his intense feelings for her. Paige connects these emotional agonies with Emily's past experiences of violent abuse, which are depicted in disturbing detail. Amber's fate is ultimately overshadowed by revelations from Reeve that propel Emily toward self-discovery, forging a new level of intimacy between them. Positive comparisons to E.L. James's Fifty Shades trilogy are somewhat justified, but every unlikable aspect of those books is on display here as well.
