Taffi came from an abusive home and comes to the big city but it doesn't take long for her to fall into trouble. Enter Sullivan who is there to help her but he has his own 'Arrangement' for her. This was one really hot read! The ...more

Ack! Cliffy but good story overall!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I love delicious little books that are quick to spice things up and yet leave you wanting more. This May-September romance is part of a series so you will have no HEA or closure at all in this part.

Loaded with hot scenes sparked by jealously, control, and a spicy, demanding and successful businessman named Sullivan, you start to see the submission he requires from Taffi. While it should frighten her away, she loves the attention... until she re

Sorry to say that this one fell flat for me. The premise was good...older man, younger girl.. he helps her out of a tough situations and they have sex and develop ..etc...

However the Hero only wants this to be an "arrangement", no commitment.

Sorry but i just don't like being in the mind of an 18 year old girl talking about "the only man i ever loved" blah, blah. It just didn't ring true for me.

But this one has been in my kindle for ages, and i finally got to it..dont think ill be reading book

Taffi hasn't had the best upbringing as she was brought up in a trailer park and has worked for everything she has, her mom is a pushover, and her mother's boyfriend is an alcoholic. Taffi has had enough so at 18 she ups and leaves and takes a bus anywhere that is home. She had big dreams and wanted to make something of herself and thought that the big city would be great. That was until she arrived and one thing follows another, and it spirals down fast, and she ends up on her first day alone i

I had great pleasure of reading this erotic romance book and if you love older Billionaire men with a little fifty shades, you MUST read this book. It is a page turner and one you won't want to put down.

I was engrossed in it the whole time, from beginning to end and let me tell you, I wanted more.

Taffy is one you can relate to coming from a poor, broken family who just wanted something for herself. To be loved and to be worth something.

Sullivan comes along totally captivated by her beauty. He

This review is based on the ARC provided by the author and/or the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.

3.5

This is a very erotic contemporary romance. BDSM is the main theme for this story. The H in the story made sure the h needed him for the things he could do for her. He had the control by what he could provide. Their story doesn't end in this book, so get ready to do a little stalking of your own till the author gets #2 done. (Read it, stalking is ALLOWED!!)

This book is very similar to Fifty Shades to Grey, so if you are a fan of this, this is the book for you. Hot Dirty Talking Alpha Male, handcuffs, BDSM the works, Sullivan is much older than Taffi which some people may not like but if y

I really didn't have high expectations. As a 61 year old male, the hook for me was the age difference, with my fiancée 25 years younger than me , I hoped to find a story that showed this dynamic in realistic terms. Taffi, the main character came from the same type of home situation as my fiancée. Although I am not wealthy, like Cooper Sullivan, I have been able provide her a life she didn't expect to live.

This story is well written, realistic, and captured my interest. It was not a maudlin roma

This was my first read by Jenna Fox. This story flowed well. I enjoyed the presentation of the characters and their backstories.

The story of Taffeta Watkins and Sullivan Cooper is a spring/autumn pairing. Fox writes an intriguing story of domination and submission, where each of the parties has distinct reasons for the choices they make.

In book one of this series, naïve Taffi escapes an abusive and dead end home life and strikes out for big city life on her own, having secured what she thinks i

When young Taffy meets Sullivan, the sparks fly and the results are explosive! Taffy is attractive and relatable. Sullivan is sexy, dark and everything you want in a dom.

When a dominating man walks into your life just when you needed him most, what would you do? Would you take him up on his offer? I know that I would but it is only a book. Ms. Jenna Fox sure knows how to write. Her writing flows and you become a part of the characters.
This book ripped my heart out. Why oh why would he do such a thing at the end.

This book was a train wreck that you couldn't look away from. The age of the heroine (18) bothered me a little bit & the age of the anti hero was never mentioned. All that was said is he was a much older man. It was very Pretty Womanish meets 50 Shades. I actually didn't like the anti-hero. I thought he was a dick & I wasn't a fan of him being into an 18yo. If he was in his 20's I wouldn't have an issue with it but, if he's "much older" I doubt he's in his 20's. I wasn't a fan of the sto ...more

I couldn't believe that it ended in a cliffhanger! Seriously! Oh my goodness, knowing that Sullivan had studied Taffi long before he approaches her had me wondering just how far he'll go to keep her by his side all the while pushing her limits. She's far from being a virgin and although she doesn't have much experience (her only time being in the back of a car that was all about his pleasure and not hers), I loved how she still took the r

Taffi escapes from her abusive family and runs to the big city, only to find more trouble. Sullivan is more than happy to help her with an Arrangement of his own. This is a fast paced read with a great story and plenty of steam. I really liked it and am looking forward to reading more in the series.

This is the first book by this author I have read and was a tad disappointed.

 I unfortunately didn't feel any connection at all to the characters. I found some similarities between this book and others out there and to me that was abit frusterating. 
I found that Taffeta was rather immature and that could be due to her age. I found Sullivan who claimed himself as a controlling man to not have that appeal that so many other dominant men have that we drool over in books.

This book did take me a bit to get into and was slightly different than what I was expecting however I thoroughly enjoyed it once I got into it. This is the first book I have read by Jenna and it won’t be the last. This book has some light stalking, D/s, spanking, and more so if those aren’t your cup of tea I would suggest you skip this book. Taffi Watkins hasn’t had the best childhood and life isn’t getting any easier. She is 18 and leaving home she lives in a trailer with her mother and drunk ...more

I love the older billionaire, younger, eager to please woman trope. Add to the mix all the kinky and the cliffhanger? well, for me it's all there needs to be.
I loved Sullivan Cooper. Love his domineering, sexy ways and the fact that he's a billionaire just adds to the mix. Taffi had it rough, and in trying to better her situation she ends up in jail. Well, I guess that was what Fate had in store, because Coop could come in and save the day...

This is a must read sexy story!

Sullivan is an older man who gets what he wants. Who doe he want? Taffi.

Taffi is a young naïve woman who gets into trouble that seems like there's no way out - until Sullivan gets involved.

Her freedom comes at a price. A price she's willing to pay. First get her GED. Education is required. Next comes The Arrangement.

This is a sexy hot read I'd recommend to anyone looking for an erotic story with a twist (and a cliffhanger). But never fear, Book 2, Bound Forever, is
