Like most college graduates, Natalie Harlow is swimming in debt. Her post-graduate job can barely afford her the chance to move out of her parents' apartment, or make any headway on her $700 a month student loan.

So when her glamorous, dresses-like-she-isn't-hurting-for-money co-worker Quinn offers her the opportunity to make a lot of money for just one night of work - a "

“A man like me will ruin a girl like you.”

“I know...So ruin me.”

Candidate Four is a hot kinky little number that delivered on that one night of pure carnal pleasure. It was a shortie of a read that didn't hold anything back, giving us a glimpse of the person they are without it being all about the sex. There is something to be said about secrets and mystery, where you can be anyone you want with no care or thought about your actions or what becomes of tomorrow. Perfect in

I had been wanting to read this book since I heard of the author. She made the book free for this weekend and I grabbed up my copy. This book is considered erotica, but I really think that it is just hot. The sex is described beautifully.
Natalie is an overworked recent college graduate. She is trying to figure out how to pay everything and her student loans that are hanging over her head. She is still living at home because the $700 a month in student loans to pay back take much of here hard ear

**4.5 stars**
I really enjoyed this book! Candidate Four is about Natalie who is struggling to find out a way to handle her student loan debt, while working a low paying job and living with her parents. Her friend gives her the idea of becoming a candidate and Natalie gives it a try not knowing (fully) what to expect.

This book is steamy! I kind of feel like it's an erotic romance novel version of The Selection by Kiera Cass (minus the class break down). It was interesting and I honestly wanted to

This was a good master slave quick read. Natalie Harlow is swimming in debt. Natalie has just graduated college and she has a job that she can barely pay her bills. Her co-worker Quinn offers her the opportunity to make a lot of money for just one night of work a "job" that is as secretive as it is lucrative Natalie is hesitant, but curious to find out what it is. Quinn is part of an elite group of girls that take care of men's needs. They are taken to a private location and bidden upon for ...more

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Natalie has the same problem most of us have, a lot of debt and adequate enough paying job to pay it off. Natalie also has a friend in Quinn who gives her an opportunity to make some extra money towards paying off her loans. Natalie goes into this opportunity knowing what is expected but leaves with a sense of curiosity more than anything else. Gentleman twelve is sexy as hell and not in any way what Natalie was expecting. They ...more

I really enjoyed it!
Quick, hot and enthralling.
It bothered me that there's no mention of protection between the two main characters...
I'm not really a fan of strangers performing unprotected sex, expecially in the context these two characters meet.
That said...I want to know more!
I'll get my hands on "Sinful Reunion" as soon as possible and I'll definitely read more of Crystal Cierlak's work.

Girl goes to college and then can't get a job.
Girl has enormous student loan debt.
Roommate always has money and nice things.
In comes a secret job and she is now a "Candidate" in an auction

This is a must read, it keeps you wondering through the whole thing.
Loved it and will be buying the rest of the series.

This book had just enough of the components that it takes to make a great book, for me personally. Well written with believable characters, Crystal Cierlak has done a great job with the first of this series.
Natalie is up to her eyeballs in debt and an office colleague has a way to fix that but will Natalie want to? She does and it opens her eyes well as her financial future.
Really great read just wished it had been longer....on to Sinful Reunion!
Going once, going twice, sold to the highest bidder. I did not know what to expect but I really enjoyed the first installment to this series.
