Add to Goodreads:
Money can buy anything. And anyone. As the head of the Constantine family, I’m used to people bowing to my will. Cruel, rigid, unyielding—I’m all those things. When I discover the one woman who doesn’t wither under my gaze, but instead smiles right back at me, I’m intrigued.
Ash Elliott needs cash, and I make her trade in crudeness and degradation for it. I crave her tears, her moans. I pay for each one. And every time, she comes back for more. When she challenges me with an offer of her own, I have to decide if I’m willing to give her far more than cold hard cash.
But love can have deadly consequences when it comes from a Constantine. At the stroke of midnight, that choice may be lost for both of us.
MY REVIEW:Smoking hot! Holy moly, I was not expecting this! I should’ve know with this author and the word dark that it would be on another level. Don’t let that deceptively sweet cover fool you because there’s not much sweet in this story other than the sweet young thing that the villainous Winston corrupts with his dark, disturbing predilections. He’s one cold hearted villain in this story. And H.O.T. with his business acumen and good looks and dirty talking and dirtier play. I love the inside his head bits where we get to know exactly what he’s thinking. Winston is the ruler of all things Constantine, the family that rules NYC. It’s all about family, legacy and blood. When an encounter between the CEO and the barely legal Ash turns into a dominating thrill for both, a relationship is born. A relationship about control, humiliation and expectations. I love Win and Ash! He turns her into a submissive for money when she’s desperate to pay for college without depending on her nasty stepmother. Here’s the Cinderella part that’s so much fun. Along with stepmonster there’s the evil Terror Triplets, three nasty stepbrothers. Ugh, they’re so bad! Plus, there’s the blood feud with the Constantine’s nemesis, the Morellis. Awful Italians! Everything going pretty good until the fateful night of the ball. Such a cliffhanger that’s left me jonesing for the next part an so many questions. What happens to Ash? What will Winston think and do? Winston and Ash’s bad habit may be their undoing. This is a fantastic, darkly delicious retelling of a twisted take on Cinderella that will flame your panties and melt your heart as the youngster Ash melts that cold heart of villain Winston. Absolutely fabulous! A must read!
