I am the woman men pay thousands of dollars to sleep with. I do what I love and what I'm so very good at.

Then he walks in and drops $30,000. He wants to talk. And kiss. And take me home.

In a single night, this man turns everything upside-down and has me breaking every rule I've lived by to keep men at a distance. I'm about to learn some lessons the hard way.

Don't tease him

This story is about Payton, the best friend of the heroine of the first book. That tale ended with a hint that something major and life-changing happened to Payton and now we have her story.

She worked in a private BDSM club in Chicago (ironically the first two books only showed plain sex in this club).

One day a guy named Dominic came in and paid $30,000 just to talk to her. Talk led to kiss which led to mutual interest which let to some interesting discovery by Payton which let to her losing h

Three Hard Lessons is the second book in the blindfold series and features Payton, Evelyn’s best friend. We got to meet Payton briefly in Three Simple Rules and know she is anti-love and anti-commitment. She loves sex and she loves her job but isn’t looking for more.

Dominic is only in town for a few days before returning to Japan. After his friend cancels their plans he decides to check out the Blindfold Club at his friend's recommendation. That night Dom drops $30,000 for a kiss and companions

While I really liked Dom awkward blushes and all, I've got to admit I'm not a big Payton fan. Was the book insanely sexy? Yes. Incredibly so. Yet I found myself wishing the h was someone else because there were things I just really didn't like about her. I'm not talking about her profession because I'm not going to judge anyone but her personality just grated. I did admit to seeing some growth in her as she fell more for Dom but by then, the impression I had made it harder for me to enjoy it. Do ...more
I don't know if this book deserves completely for five stars, but it definitely made that I'm a fan of Nikki Sloane.

I'd forgotten I'd read this series until it recently appeared in my GR feed.

I have never hated a heroine more. Like ever. Like I'm creating a new shelf for her. I'd like to go with: bitches-i-hate. But I'm a refined chick so I'm sure I'll eventually come up with something classy ;)

I read it cuz I had all three books in the series on my phone over a vacation. AND NOTHING ELSE...and no wifi. I was so pissed. Ugh.

This h instigated a threesome with the H/h of the first book in such a skanky way. I'm
2 HARD stars!

So this book is about Peyton; Evelyn's best friend. I really liked the first book about Evelyn and Logan. But I'm a bit disappointed with the second book because... too much 'meaningless' sex. And it isn't sexy at all. Honestly, I was intrigued with some chapters and curious about what will happen next.

Peyton is a professional high-class escort. She's wild, adventurous and proud of her job. Peyton love sex and never have problem with it. Dominic is her 'last' client and he's the one

5 Naughty but Fun Lessons

Three Hard Lessons is a standalone and is part of the Blindfold Club series. This is Payton’s and Dominic’s story. I seriously have mad love for this author and this series. Every time I pick up a book, it’s a five star read for me. She writes steamy and hot hot hot books.

Payton is Evelyn’s best friend. If you haven’t read the first book, you should (although you can read them out of order) but Payton’s personality is wild and big. I was on the fence with Payton’s story

Heather / Obsessed With Myshelf
Dirty, sinful and downright filthy. Oh, I loved it. Every boundary pushing word of it. Three Hard Lessons is more than just sex – although there is a lot of sex. This book pushes limits while building love.

It also turned me the fuck on.

Payton makes no apologies for who she is: a woman who loves sex & who gets paid to have it. She works at the Blindfold Club, a high class illegal brothel of sorts, and while she loves her job she’s hasn’t quite been feeling satisfied. When Dominic walks into t

Well, I really don't know where to start. Since Payton was introduced in the first book, I immediately checked if she'd got a book for herself and when I saw the second book was about her, I was literally doing mental somersaults! 😋

This book was really really hot just as the first one. Every page contains different level of sexiness and it totally goes up on the scale by each turn. 😅

I really loved the plot, Payton and Dominic and the dynamic between them and I believe their story deserved five s

Hot Damn!!!!

This series keeps getting steamier. I was #TeamPayton from book 1. That woman owned her shit and she's here to prove how she owns it.

Then there's Dom. He comes off a little odd and inexperienced but he's pure sex. That man can make you come without touching you. Really. Ask Payton.

If you're looking for new characters, none of those whinny females and overly stressed alphas, some sizzling sexy times, more than 3 people involved (@.@) or looking for a fun new read, this is the series
4.5 stars!

I really, really like this author. She writes good stories, great sex, and excellent heroes while also pushing boundaries to keep the reader guessing. There’s little doubt this has cost her readers, as a good chunk of the people that prefer this genre are quite picky about what they consider acceptable. I have a massive amount of respect for Nikki Sloane’s ability to not give one single fuck. One of her books was even banned from Amazon, and she still never changed. So, with my gushing

Book One was Smoken, Book Two Lit the pages on FIRE!

Payton isn’t my favorite character but that is ok because the man oh the man that finds her is exactly who she needs.

I mean holy hell, shyish and possessive yes please he was everything Payton didn’t know she needed and so so much more.

There are a few scenes in this book you are going to blush and blush HARD because they are sexy as all get out.
You wouldn’t think it would be that way because of how many people are in the scene but it works

Oh Nikki how I love your books and how I love how you delver such hot intense crazy love in each one of them. Three Hard Lessons is just another addicting read filled with sex, love, heartache and a journey you don’t want to miss out on!
From page one I couldn’t put this one down, I was sucked in so bad I am not sure I moved from my spot till almost half way through! LOL

Payton and Dominic’s story is AWESOME! After their first interaction at the club, where Payton works, life will forever change
Gretchen  (About That Story)
So, this was hot. Like, hot HOT! Holy wow hot. It was also a really great story with likable characters and I totally enjoyed it.

Besides being hot, this story was also fun and playful and had a really nice build. I thought it was a great read! While there is intensity from the sex I felt myself drawn to these characters. Dominic was so sweet and seemed almost timid but oh man, he comes out of his shell and demanding Dominic is awesome! I liked Payton a lot too and this journey she went on with
So if I loved Three Simple Rules. I ADORED Three Hard Lessons. I always enjoy storylines where the heroine has a bit more experience. Payton's a prostitute so she's quite experienced. But Dom, because of extenuating circumstances, has spent the last year with his hand and lots of porn! He's ummmm just a little, rusty. But omg is Dom A-dorable. He blushes like a school girl but still manages to burn things up between the sheets. He knows Payton has him dead to rights with the whole sex thing but ...more
I was very kindly provided with an ARC of Three Hard Lessons to read and review by the author.

I say this every time I read a book by this author but by golly is the woman a genius. Once again she has produced something that has cemented her even further into my all time favourite author spot and stolen my all time favourite book spot. This can easily be read as a standalone but as the previous book in the series, Three Simple Rules, is so fabulous and will give you a greater insight into Payton

Whoa. If you are looking for a super hot read with kink AND story, The Blindfold Club books by Nikki Sloane totally fit the bill. I really loved Three Simple Rules (see my review) which ended on a bit of a cliffy that was resolved in this one. The thing is, I didn’t really like Payton very much in the first book, and Three Hard Lessons is Payton’s book, so there

I received this book as an arc. It has been on my to be read list ever since I read the first book. I really loved this book. Way hotter than the first in the series, but with just as much heart. You really don't get much of a chance to meet and get it know Payton in Three Simple Rules, so it was so much fun to get inside her head in Theee Hard Lessons. She comes across as tough and independent but you quickly see and identify with her vulnerable side. Dominic is just awesome. He seems to be con ...more

The book started ok, I downloaded it because of the interesting cliffhanger from the prequel. There is chemistry between Dominic and Payton, and she goes with him to Tokyo.
The author describes the first few weeks there well with sightseeing and the different culture in regard to shopping, eating and traffic, but then there is only sex. One scene after the next and although she tries to vary it with a Japanese Dom/Sub it gets boring. No description of their travel to Mount Fiji, or a detailed na

I tried to rate 4 stars, but this was so fun reading, so light, when I realized I was almost done!
Just like the first book, I would say that there are too many sex scenes, though they are very intense and insane!
What a hot read!
Dominic and Payton are so meant to be together! <3

Nikki did it again and so quickly. As people began to get over their heavy breathing and repeated flashback of how hot book one of this series is she gives us book two and it is a glorious. It begins were book one ended and tells us the story of our favorite call girl/bestie/ménage coordinator, Payton. We loved her in book one and cherish her in book two.

The flow of the book was so smooth and there is never a dull moment and even Payton is always doing something in this book. It just so happens

Three Hard Lessons is the second book in this series. You can certainly read it as a standalone, but I highly recommend reading Three Simple Rules first. Not just because it was awesome, but because you will also be introduced to Payton and get a feel for her character before reading her story.

Payton works in a sex club. She is content with her lifestyle and very much enjoys her occupation. After sharing a short time with a client that pays a ridiculous amount of money to be with her, Payton sta

I'm actually in shock right now and will be for some time now but I'm just going to come out with it ... I just DNF this book! And it may not sound like a big deal to others but to me its major seeing how much excitement I had for this book.

I could not for the life of me connect with the main characters, I tried so hard I really did but they just got on my bad side and I didn't feel the chemistry between both MCs it was all over the place for me.

If you read the first book, you are probably like me and wanted MORE about Payton.

I loved how it played out - the random connection of friends and how they are brought together. Going with him - crazy but what else could she do?!

My only teeny tiny gripe was the large amount of sex in this good book - I enjoyed erotic novels but it felt scene after scene. I felt the end one wasn't needed. She didn't need to go to that room ...

I am so curious about Joseph. Where is that story going
