No one knows how new members are selected to the board of Hale Banking and Holding. But there are rumors of a sordid rite of initiation.
Whispers how one woman and nine men disappear into a boardroom.
This time, that woman will be me.
The Hale family owns everything—the eighth largest bank in the world, everyone in our town, even the mortgage on my parents’ mansion. And now Royce Hale wants to own me.
He is charming. Seductive. Ruthless. But above all, he’s the prince of lies. My body may tighten with white-hot desire under his penetrating gaze, but I refuse to enjoy it.
I’ll make a deal with the devil to save my family and sell myself to the Hales. But Royce will never own my heart.
Good but the sequel is creepy
This book has a dark-and-twisted vibe but nothing out of my comfort zone.
However, if you can’t resist reading the sequel to a cliffhanger, avoid this book.
The next book gets much much worse. The creep factor is so high that it’s more gothic or horror than romance or erotica, so I can’t recommend the series overall.
I do highly recommend the Blindfold Club series by this author.
Not for me
I usually like Nikki Sloan’s books. However, this was too unsettling for me. I’m giving it a 3 because it was well written and kept me on edge. It was kind of like a movie you don’t want to watch anymore, but do anyway. I’m just not watching the sequels.
This book series is SO FREAKING GOOD!!!! Must read. I loved it because it was different and unique, not like any book I’ve read before!
