The Bridal Auction - Vivian Ward
Reading Challenge Category: Free ARC from Booksprout
Nothing could have prepared me for the highest bidder. Selling my virginity at Club Kaswell seemed crazy but when Oliver Ford bought me, nothing could have prepared me for the kind of man he is. On the outside, he looks like a handsome professional but only sick, depraved men frequent this dark underground club. Even as I exit the auction with my new owner–my soon-to-be husband––I know I have to get away from this man before he ruins me. He’s everything my parents ever warned me about but my body betrays my mind at every turn, making it impossible to resist him; just one touch from this man shocks my body to the core. I only have to pretend to be his for the next 30 days before I can leave but when the past comes knocking, he’s the only one who can save me.
Wow, this book was so much fun, but in a dark and twisted sort of way. It has such a different vibe to the other books I have read so far in the Wedding season collaboration. Its storyline is so much more real and sinister. Kendra has a really tough life and is being held not captive by her callous father but certainly isn’t able to live her best life. She sees a desperate way out of a dire and atrocious situation, so she takes it. But has she jumped from the frying pan into the fire? Has she made the biggest mistake of her life? Kendra has entered an agreement with wealthy and sexy older-man Oliver. He wants something she’s not sure whether she wants to give, but she has to learn to trust again before she can completely commit. The development of this story is fantastic and impressive; you really feel Kendra’s anguish and worry. She has an inner turmoil going on and is exactly how I would have felt in her situation. However, she couldn’t have met more perfect a man than Oliver to help her get over her terrible past and to defeat her demons. She gets the perfect Happily Ever After that she so much deserves and I finished the book with a smile on my face.
