The rules:
No dating.
No sex outside of the game.
No disclosing the terms of the contract.
Rules were made to be broken, right?

Eight weeks ago I signed a contract.  One that seemed like a good idea at the time.  A handsome bachelor, luxury accommodations, and a chance to win a prize my family desperately needed.  There were some rules though.  Lots of them actually.  Follow the script, no dating, sex, or disclosing the terms of the deal.  After my self-imposed moratorium on men the last year, it wouldn’t be hard to live up to my end of the bargain…so I thought.  Until I realized the deal I’d made was with the devil…and I was in love with his dirty-talking brother.


Every girl needs three things
 1.  A flutter in her belly when she meets him for the first time.
 Meet Cooper
 My lips brush the top of her hand lightly, my tongue sneaking out to fleetingly touch her skin.  The brief contact stirs an ache inside me.  This woman tugs at something—more than arousal—something that makes me want to slow down time just to spend a few more minutes standing here.
“Did you just…” she stammers a bit.
“Did I just what?”
She squints at me.  “You know.”
“Do I?”
“I felt your tongue on my hand.  You…you licked me.”
I’d been dying to run my tongue along her neck all evening, although I hadn’t really meant to be so crude about it.  It just sort of …happened.  “I wouldn’t say licked, maybe just a little taste.”
“So you tasted me?”
My entire body suddenly has interest in this conversation.  “I suppose I did.  But it wasn’t nearly enough.  That brings us back to my invitation for dinner.  Tomorrow night?”
“I can’t.”
“The day after then?”
She laughs and shakes her head.  The sound makes me smile.
“Good night, Cooper.”  She pulls the driver’s side door shut and leaves me standing there…for a full five minutes after she’s gone.

2.  A best friend to talk about him to.
 Meet Sadie

“And I kissed him when we were in his office.”
“How was his office?”
“Really?  That’s what you want to know.  Not how was the kiss or aren’t you in breach of your contract?  How was his office?”
“You can tell a lot about a man by his office.”
I gulp another unladylike sip from my wine glass.  “His office was beautiful.  Sleek, overlooking the city.  It oozed power.”
“Nice.  Bet he fucks like he owns you.”
The thought of what he’s like in bed is enough to make me lose my train of thought.
“Go on,” Sadie prods.
I don’t continue immediately.
“You forgot what you were up to because you were thinking of him fucking you like he owns you, didn’t you?”  My best friend smirks knowingly.
“Shut up.”  I pause.  “Anyway, I don’t know what I’m going to do.”
“Well, him.  Obviously.”
“I wish it were that easy.”

3.  A gentleman that turns into a bossy dirty talker in the bedroom.
Cooper – behind closed doors.

“You haven’t even begun to see bossy yet.  Tonight I’m going to tell you to do things, and you’re going to do them.  When I tell you to open wider, or take my cock deeper, you’re going to listen.  You know why?  Because since the moment we met, all I’ve wanted to do is make you feel good.  Hell, I don’t even need to get off physically.  Because I’m going to get off watching you every minute.  So, yeah, I’m going to be bossy.  Now let’s put the rest of this behind us.  Do you want to be with me tonight?”
After that prelude, I nod my head fast.  I’m no fool.  Who wouldn’t?

Review of Thob

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Spoiler-free review

Did you ever think about why people go on TV shows like The Bachelor? Are they really looking for love or do they have another agenda?

Kate is a gambling woman and betting that she can win the Throb bachelor show to have enough money to help her family. The night before she's set to go back on the show set, she meets Cooper.  The problem is that this hot bachelor isn’t on the show. If Kate wants to win, she has to abide by the shows rules:

No dating.

No sex outside of the game.

No disclosing the terms of the contract.

Cooper is a dirty talking studio executive who falls for the bachelorette.  Kate is falling for Cooper, but she knows that she is on this show for a reason and she doesn't want to jeopardize her chance at winning. While she has incredible chemistry with her off-screen bachelor, she is also rocking some on-screen chemistry with the show's resident heartthrob, rock star bachelor. Lust, lies, jealousy, cat fights and sex are scripted on and off camera.  Who is going to walk away the real winner?

I loved this sexy and sweet story.  Vi always has a way of creating likable characters and engaging plot lines.  This unique made for TV romance was seriously HOT. Kate and Cooper’s reality show love story unfolded in such an enjoyable way...making me feel like I was a fly on the wall behind the scenes of this show.   I also loved the great “supporting cast" of characters including Kate’s best friend and the bachelor himself.  Once again Vi managed to fog up my Kindle screen with another smoking blistering hot book. Throb ends with a great HEA and no cliffhanger.  Go one click this one.
