While we can expect AR books to be short, this one felt incomplete or rushed to me. The transitions happened really fast and I didn't have enough time to form a connection to the characters. The pace didn't really give Kennedy and Mason a chance to experience any kind of growth or development. The tale had the typical OTT possessiveness but some of Mason's assumptions and his behavior as a result didn't really sit well with me. The sexy times are good but with the aforementioned, it did take som ...more

Well...you all know I'm a fan of AR but lately I feel like their books are getting shorter and shorter and thus that the story is loosing on plot a lot! I don't know if it's just me or what but I really want the old AR books, where you got the sweetness, the smut and the plot. It didn't feel like you were reading just another short smut book where sex happens and that's that. So the way things are going now, I fear that just might happen with AR book

PLEASE NOTE SOME SPOILERS AHEAD

This book for me sounded like a Harlequin Presents (HP) story meets Alexa Riley smut.


Firstly, we have the rich entitled business God Mason, whom it seems is able to treat his employees like whores and get away with it. There is no such a thing as sexual harassment or abuse.
Just like in most HP.

Secondly, the heroine Kennedy is a poor innocent sweetheart who is just working to support her family. He grandfather is ill and she must pay his cost o

When I was a little girl, I was a sucker for fairy tales. Now I still love them, and very much enjoy erotic fairy tales. Because that's what Paid For is.

Beware! Spoilers ahead! Honestly now, can such a book go any other way?

This is one of those more sexy and wicked books from Alexa Riley. Very quick office romance with age gap, possessive hero, innocent heroine and several filthy orders. No matter what you like, it definitely turns you on.



Mason is in need of a good assistant. With the help comes his best friend, who gives advert with high salary to find someone competent. Kennedy is in need of a well-paid job. When she sees the notice decided to lie a little bit and try to get a job that would solve hers problems.

It's a great first read for me this year. I always start my reading challenge with Alexa Riley's book and I loved it!

The story is about Mason and Kennedy.

He and his business partner own Foster and Crate Company. She needed a job and applied as his assistant.

He thought she's an escort and she thought he did it with his former assistants.

There were few misunderstandings and he's been hot and cold because of that but they can't help what they feel for each other.

To be honest, doing what they did

3.5 stars. This story is cute and typical AR which I love. The one issue I had though was Mason calling Kennedy sweetie. Just doesn't sound very "alpha" male to me. He calls her that 19 times in the book. I know, I'm crazy because I counted. But the books not long and every time he did, it kinda threw me out of the story a bit. Other than that, it was good ol' AR smut.

Alexa Riley, I am discovering has various levels of smut when it comes to her novella writing, and Paid For, for me was on the higher levels of the smut-o-meter.



Mason Foster, super grumpy, excessively alpha, uber dirty, pretty much falls for Kennedy Myers from their first meeting, even though he thinks she is some

Fact One: I will drop anything and everything to read an Alexa Riley book. Fact Two: They are the only authors who can get away with their insta-love stories for me to enjoy and savor every page. Fact Three: Reading an Alexa Riley will bring a smile to anyone’s face as they make you believe in happily ever afters. And so in this over the top office romance story in Paid for, you are presented with a sexy in charge alpha male hero boss who w

Zzz... I'm so bored. Alexa Riley really disappoint me many times with every short, non-sense story. Everything they have new releases, I'm really excited but the truth was such a let down. It was like they're recycle the same formula over and over again. But I'm still read it, such a guilty pleasure!

I enjoyed this one for the most part. The storyline was ridiculous, and the heroine basically whores herself out from the minute they meet. I loved the hero though. I like a little "asshole" in my heroes and he had that in spades.

Smut-tastic!

If you're looking for a quick and easy read that's also a smutty little tale of sexy times and dirty talk, this might be for you. It’s totally OTT, but I enjoyed it well enough.

If you're looking for fleshed out characters, a believable storyline, and relationship development...this is a definite PASS.

Once again Alexa had me panting and smiling. I did get sad a little over the grandpa :(. Too cute!

However, be warned the endearment for the heroine is Sweetie! Ugh I hate that word. Makes me think of 80 year old grandmas. So each time he said it I cringed a little and read over it. "sweetie" yuck. Oh well my issues!!

Wow, just wow that was one of the hottest stories AR have created, the whole theme was extremely juicy from page one till the last page with the two sweet epilogues we have used to love.

Kennedy and Mason have an amazing chemistry, their roads crossed when Kennedy desperate decided to apply for a job which was beyond her knowledge, there will meet her boss who has wronged her situation and so things will get slightly complicated...

Typical AR that I love...Little bit of angst, some sweet and a lot of dirty. It reminded me a lot of her book Mechanic which is funny because that was the book snippet at the end. Coincidental? Maybe...but that was one of my favorites so it's all good ;)

Just because this book wasn't for me it doesn't mean it's not for you.
And you know it's AR so it's safe.
My main problem was the hero and heroine.
I can't get over the fact that the hero was an asshole for more than half of the book thinking that the heroine is a (view spoiler) He keeps being an asshole until 51% and the book ends at 71%, sure it's a misunderstanding but where's the hero that AR always writes? I al

Great read, and more intense than AR's some books: H thought h was someone she was not due to his business partner' s joke/misguding. However, it didn't prevent him from wanting her. Totally an OTT alpha male! Liked how he took over everything to remove her burdens, and gave her everthing, including a lot of hot scenes. Yes, he was rude at first, but he made up for it afterwards.

One thing I wished AR enlight us more was about Finn' s motive to lead H believe h'

“something in. I wonder what the heck he’s doing. It was almost like he was waiting for me. I don't say anything, not wanting to be rude. Maybe he lives in the building. He’s not a tall man, maybe five-eleven, which doesn’t seem so big after having Mason in my space. Mason’s more than a few inches over six foot. But what this man doesn’t have in height, he has in muscles. He looks like someone who used to wrestle, I think absently. His gray hair streaks over his once-solid black hair. If I had to guess, I’d say he’s in his early fifties. The elevator dings, and he follows me on, hitting the button for both of us. When I step out, he follows me out the building and down the street. I start walking faster, unsure what the heck is going on. “Miss Myers.” When he says my name, I stop and turn, and he almost runs into me. “I’m your security. No need to be scared of me.” “Security?” “Seems you like to wander. I’m here to make sure you don’t wander into trouble.” “I don’t wander,” I fire back. He raises his eyebrows and smiles. “Just doing my job, ma’am.” His easy smile forces me to release the tension in my shoulders. Sometimes things would get a little scary when I walked home to my old apartment. It wasn’t in the nicest neighborhood. Heck, sometimes I didn’t even feel safe in my apartment.” 0 likes
