He kissed me. And not just any kiss. He kissed me like he owned me, as if he bought me last night and my orgasm was the payment. His tongue didn't explore my mouth instead it taunted me, gliding in and out between my lips in a rhythm that reminded me of hot sex. He shifted his hand to the back of my head and trapped me to him. My bag and its contents dropped to the floor. ...more

This is the second book I’ve read from Kenya Wright. The first one, Flirting with Chaos, was “a little” better than this one. My issue is, I really want to find a relatable, non-cliche, non-stereotypical new adult novels with black or asian protagonists. I’ve read a couple decent ones with Latina protagonists.

This book seemed promising at first. Jasmine grew up in a bad neighborhood but went to Harvard on a full scholarship. She’s a people pleaser and it begins with her in a weird interview fo

Wow!!!! 5 Intriguing Stars!!!

I love books that are weird, different and interesting. Those are the kind of books that will hook me into the story and keep me wanting more. This book delivered on all of those categories. I can't wait to see what's going to happen next!!
This was a 4.5 star read for me. I was absolutely pleasantly surprised about how much I loved this one. You just never really know when you pick something up for 99 pennies if you're going to find a gem or a lump of coal...

Chase is your typical uber-rich, super hot, confident, alpha male. He gets what he wants when he wants it and up until he meets Jasmine no one has ever stood in his way or questioned him. This book starts off in hilarious form. I was reading it going wait is this really h
Jasmine doesn’t know what to think when the interview for her dream job comes with invasive questions that can only logically end in lawsuits. Chase Stone is a billionaire on a mission to claim her as his latest acquisition. Let the games begin.

The Good:
1. This was hot, dirty, and fun.

2. Chase is a stalkerific hero who surprised me throughout this book when his machinations reveal themselves.

3. I found it very realistic that a beautiful, young billionaire would think nothing of setting up poly
Not for me. The drama, the ugliness, the stereotypes, the psychotic behaviour. No.

Plus, there are irritating some grammatical errors.

There are lots of ladies reading this book. Chase and Jasmine's story is a totally riveting, fascinating story about love. I liked both characters. Chase is learning a very hard lesson in what it means to truly only love one person and only want to be with that one person. My heart really did go out to him on this painful love journey that he had to walk through. There is murder, betrayal, lies aborted love, twists and turns in this story. Their story so had me on edge that I stayed up until 5am ...more

Jasmine Montgomery is a Harvard University graduate who came from the hood. She's a pretty girl with high hopes for herself and is called for the job of a lifetime, to be the executive assistant to Chase Stone. Chase is, or could have been, the boss from hell, but he had ulterior motives ... Getting Jasmine in bed. She is soon presented with the opportunity to join his unique arrangement. Chase is engaged and has 2 other girlfriends, and he's loo

Pretty good but you need the next book...
Rating: 3 Stars

This was just OK. The story of Jasmine (Harvard Graduate from the hood) and Chase (Billionaire executive). Basically the hero sees/encounters the heroine in the past, and wants her. He wants her so bad he steers her choices (really his choices) to his office to interview for a dream job at his company. Chase lives with 3 other women and wants Jasmine to join the party. This was my first book of this nature and I was intrigued by the story-line, so I consumed the book. However, it

I was not expecting this at all, from page 1 I was completely hooked. I just could not believe what was happening.

I am a little speechless and its taking me a second to pull it together because wow just wow.

(Exhale) okay here we go...

This book was great, it was also hella crazy at the same time, it was a hell of an arrangement for sure and I am sitting with my head just running thinking "Who did it!" every time I think I have an answer I second guess myself grrr. I am going to read

Loved this. So emotional, loved the writing style. Jasmine and her friends were great, funny, interesting and strong. Chase was sexy, and a total d**k at times. He obviously had never been in love. For what ever reason he decided to play it safe and get engaged to a childhood friend, Dawn , whom was a piece of work by the way. Then to stop him cheating they set up a harem of women with rules and regulations and their own special days... Man heaven... yet it seemed to drive the women crazy. A few ...more

I have to say that this was quite challenging for me to read.

It started with controversy,

developed in more controversy (view spoiler) ,

that's where things started to make me itchy and kind of yucky (is that a word? don't know but I
felt sticky and unclean),

i felt annoyed by the male (I still can't quite place him into the right drawer, f*ck, I can't even describe him in several words, he's appealing and yet at the same time he's NOT in a disturbing manner

The most annoying-alpha character ever ! argh!!
This is my 2nd book by Kenya Wright and again it was a very surprising plot.
Must be her style: to shock,catch you off guard.
Warning: sequel to come :(
All I can say about this book is that it started my addiction to Kenya Wright's books, and that it is seriously freaky...

This was definitely a worthwhile read produced by an author who has been underestimated.

Giving this one: 4.5 stars.
5 Stars for this bwwm ir romance. Hero has harem and he wants to indoctrinate Heroine in his club. She ain't going for it! Love you KW!
Jan 28, 2014 rated it it was ok
It was simply ok. The writing, overall, was good. The plot was okay, I guess if you're into the menage trois/love triangle conflicts in books. None of the conflicts raised in the book gets resolved at the end because this is book one of an apparent series.

2.5 stars...

**contains minor spoilers**

Within the first few pages I was sure I was going to check out of this book. For instance, when Chase told not asked, but told Jasmine to change her hair, essentially to get a weave because she wore her hair natural. Nope. Then Jasmine falling under the poor black girl from the hood whose brothers are all incarcerated, mother is a recovering alcoholic raising her grandchildren trope. There are young black women who have grown up in

This interview could make or break Jasmine. She needs this job her family needs her to get this job, with most of her family in jail. Her mother is raising her nieces and nephews and the bills are piling up. Being Executive Assistant to Chase Stone, Billionaire. What she didnt expect were all the intrusive procedures, the make over, the inappropriate questions and the 6 figure pay. When she takes on the job she doesnt fully understand the job requirements because along with being his personal as ...more

An Arrangement of Love hits the spot, as a book lover it takes a lot of my to get engrossed in a book i will read it until I'm done (even if that involves using sleep time to make it happen). I am book on this series, once i hit 89% and realize theres no way its finished soon i knew i wasn't going to like the end, and i was right…because it goes into book two.

Jasmine has your stereotypical background, black girl from the projects, doesn't know her father, tons of siblings in jail and supporting

An Arrangement of Love is nothing like I expected it to be. Reading the blurb I expected this Alpha male billionaire that gets what he wants all the time challenging the both book and street smart young girl right out of Ivy league, but what goes on in this book will take you on a roller coaster of emotions and situations that will enthrall you from the very beginning. When you first meet Jasmine for the first time, you can tell she is a take-no-bullshit type of girl that has worked hard to get ...more

"An Arrangement of Love" by Kenya Wright was a very good read of a interracial, erotica, suspenseful and mystery urban read. I will say when I first started reading I had different thoughts of what I thought this read was about but as I dove into the novel I can only say what I found was a complete surprise. Leaving me only to say in the end ... wow that was some good read of Chase

“I love how you think my orders are suggestions.”

Are you for real??

I’m a modern chick, and I hate to be told what to do. But yeah I admit I liked that quote.

To be honest I didn’t know if I should take a chance on this book. “Arrangement” romances have always intrigued me, but on the other hand I don’t care for polygamous relationships — at all. It honestly bothers me. (I am a believer in monogamy. I also can’t handle the gender bias in these relationships. One man with dozens of women, but the

Ok so for as many things in this book as I found hard to believe right out of the gate (When has ANYONE ever asked you how many sexual partners you've had in you lifetime on a JOB INTERVIEW?!?!?) I still sipped this kool aid faster than I ever did "The Fanfiction We Do Not Speak Of" because even at its worst, this book is still incredibly sexy, entertaining, and sensual while not being COMPLETELY contradictory to the lifestyle its exploring like some books do *Cough* 50ShadesofGray *Cough*.

Is it love that I'm feeling for this book?

I would have taken away a star for a few words missing here or there or a few words misspelled. But they were so few and far between that I felt it wasn't necessary.
How much did I love this book? I finished it in two days! I only finish books by Sherrilynn Kenyon and my other favorite authors in that amount of time.
Yes this book is along the same lines of 50 shades of grey and the crossword series, but after that similarity it takes a full 180. Jasmine

What do you do when you know someone is more bad for you that good? When you can't help yourself and try to allow yourself just a taste?

Jasmine... She wasn't completely blined by the candy in the wrapping. Jasmine had an idea, but didn't realize once opened it would devour her completely. She got caught up in the taste. It shot straight to her heart unexpectedly. Caught up in a sugar high the walls started to cave in and the suffering/insecurity began.

Chase... With 3 Queens already in the game.

Let me start off by saying this was the first book I have read by this author, but it will not be the last. Kenya Wright did a fantastic job with this one. This read has the right balance of love, conflict, suspense, heat and craziness. I love that! The story is well told with excellent twists and turns. It is captivating and intriguing. The author tells the story of a 4 way love affair of a man who wants to have the best of the three women in his life, but falls hard for one. I was pulled into ...more
