He’s about to take control of her body…and her dream.
When River set up a fundraiser to kick start her nail polish business, she never expected someone to pay five thousand dollars just to have dinner with her. But when she meets her mysterious benefactor, he turns out to be billionaire Kane Winters—the one man from her past who she never wanted to see again.
Kane is determined to right the wrong that happened to River in college—because of him. She’s been an obsession he can’t escape…and Kane wants River more than he’s ever wanted anything. So he offers her a deal she can’t refuse: marry him and her business will be success. But River’s knight in shining armor isn’t looking for a platonic business deal. He wants their marriage to be real…in every way
Second chances, enticingly erotic, & quite a curve-ball thrown in at the end! That is Nailed in a nutshell.
Kane & River had a brief affair back in college that ended very badly. Kane has never forgotten River or the hell he put her through in college and when he discovered her Kickstarter campaign, what better way to make his apologies, than by funding it. Kane eventually gets kinda devious with his manipulation of River and their relationship, and this put me off just a bit.
I get that this book is an erotic story, and believe me when I say that the sex throughout was incredibly HOT, I just think that from where the story started and where it ended there could have been so much more in between. I didn't hate it, I actually thought it was all right, I just wished the story was a bit more developed ~ and that the curve ball in the end was more of the story line itself.
