Surrendering a year of his life to a woman he’s never met might be the worst idea ever. But money, prestige, and sex are powerful incentives. That is, until the job becomes more than a contractual agreement.

Yes. Yes. Yes. Pam Godwin I adore the way you tell a story. You have a unique sexual hum that vibrates off of every page and you always gift multi-layered characters that a reader will root for. This book is no exception. Pam Godwin delivers a hero that has been through the wringer and has never been in a serious relationship and is offered a chance to get out of his financial hell by agreeing to be matched with a rich woman for one year’s time. It’s the makings of an okay story y

5 my favorite incentive stars



Decker is a proud man who has the integrity and respect that most men in lack, he is just down on his luck and on his last dime. When a too good to be true opportunity presents himself, he can't help but let his curiosity get the best of him, and once he sees who's behind the door all bets are off, because this one might be the chase to end all chases...
“I’m searching for the one I want to chase forever. The one I can’t walk away from.”

He’s a feeling I’ve never felt. An emotion without limits. An agreement that doesn’t expire. He’s the only place I want to be.


Whether it's a suspenseful dark romance or an erotically charged contemporary romance, Pam Godwin never disappoints with delivering one unputdownable read. Incentive was a deeply emotional, poignant, and absolutely, positively toe curling. It was a delicious combination of feeling and eroticism with characters that will claw their way into your heart and stay

Oh dear god, this book really surprised me. I thought there will be a less talking and more fucking in this book but it was more emotional than I expected. Still I really enjoyed it just the way it is. Story was sooooo good and well written, plus Decker is one of those panty melting heroes. You should meet him asap!

Btw I loved Decker & Laynee's chemistry so much. ;)

I was so excited to read Incentive for two reasons. The first, is I’m a huge fan of Pam Godwins. I love her writing and her books are consistently good. The second reason is that this story is set in the Infidelity world. If you’ve read Aleatha Romig’s Infidelity series, I’m sure you’re interested by now. If not, don’t worry. You won’t be lost or anything like that- this can be read as a standalone.

5 “Fight4U” stars

Note to the readers: Don’t avoid the book just because of the word “Infidelity” in the title, there is no infidelity between the main characters.



INCENTIVE is really a good work in my opinion. It has a different story to tell and the writing is really good. It is 207 pages and it flows fluently with no boring or unnecessary stuff to the story. That is why, you cannot skip a sentence or a paragraph cause every sentence counts, every information serves a purpose.

I have to admit I started this book blindly not even realising that it was set in the infidelity world from one of my favourite series by Aleatha Romig.

I know, how does that even happen with such a similar cover and title? Duh!!

So figuring out that tidbit I was a little hesitant BUT then I met Decker, the man is fucking perfect. Alpha attitude, gorgeous body and all round good guy (even if he acts bad) so of course I became suddenly intrigued.

For those that have read the Infidelity Series by Aleatha Romig Incentive will take you back into that world and have no fear, Pam Godwin wrote a thrilling story.

That Decker, the MMC, is 12 years younger than Laynee, the FMC, was truly the icing for me. I loved that even though this was a short novel, Ms Godwin did not stint on the character and plot development.

Also, this is a stand-alone and requires no prior knowledge of the original series. Highly recommend.

INCENTIVE: Spoken in ‘Dual Perspectives’ Decker and Laynee. This book is written by Pam Godwin as part of the Infidelity world, based on the Infidelity series by the best selling author Aleatha Romig.

Incentive is written in the Infidelity World, Aleatha Romig’s series. As a fan of Pam and the Infidelity World, I was very excited to see what Pam would do with the story. The best part of this book is you can read it even if you haven’t read the Infidelity books. The stories are somewhat connected but can be read as standalone.

After Decker has lost it all he does something he never thought he would do, he enters into a one-year contract with Infidelity. That means he is the hired companion to a

This story was awful. I couldn't relate to the characters , and in my opinion, there was nothing enticing about their relationship at all. I'm sorry I didn't like it at all. Perhaps some of you will but it was not my cup of tea.

I should state that I have never read the Infidelity Series by Aleatha Romig. However, I was told this book could be read as a standalone and I did not need to have prior knowledge of Aleatha’s popular series. In fact, this series has done so well, it’s sparked its own fanfiction. This is what the Infidelity World is. It’s a part of Kindle Worlds by Amazon, a special line of stories set in worlds already made popular by a specific author. Through Kindle Worlds, the original author gives A

Fuck, did this book annoy me. I’ll admit, it made me overly emotional (better said, enraged) so this is going to be a very, very subjective review/rant.

I was loving this in the beginning. I liked the hero, he seemed interesting, hot, and I could see so much potential in him. And I was downright giddy about the fact that for the first time since reading romances, it’s the heroine that has the power and the money. She’s the one buying a man for a year, not the man, as is the norm. Not to mention,

Phenomenal!

Incentive is one of those rare novellas that builds a rich, immersive story while delivering an emotional wallop. You can’t help but be wildly empathetic to these characters and their vulnerabilities.

Decker Gabrielli is out of options. No job. No money. Just days away from losing his apartment. He’s desperate. Desperate enough to sign a one-year contract with Infidelity to be the “companion” of a woman he has never met.

Famous, gorgeous, wealthy, Laynee Somerset has her reasons for

I really enjoyed this story. It is a fairly short one (only about 200+ pages), but it was very engaging from start to finish, and I was amazed with the character development in this short span. I found the MCs relationship to evolve very organically, the time jumps (fast forward

Oooh I love a Pam Godwin book, and I was not disappointed in the slightest. Dark and sexy is her game, and Incentive was both of those things, but also full of emotion, and a story that pulled at my heartstrings.

Set in the world created by author Aleatha Romig in her Infidelity series, this was such a creative and clever idea - it is part of Amazon Worlds, where authors are invited to write their own stories, set in other authors worlds. I have not read Romig's books, but after

I love Pam Godwin and I was so excited about this story. And I really liked it. It was interesting especially since I've not read the Infidelity series. (That series by Aleatha Romig is definitely getting pushed up on my TBR now though.) I liked that the hero was the one that was in desperate need of help and the heroine was the one kind of "in charge". It was a bit slower than I expected so it took me a bit to fall in love with both Laynee and Decker but I really loved the begin

Welcome to Infidelity, where the elite of the elite come to find a companion for one year. Can Decker do it? Sure, he's down on his luck when he has to close down his business and his name has been drag through the mud, but when he gets fired from his bartending job and he's about to be evicted what choice does he have? Sign his life and body away to a woman he's never met before for money or go homeless?
