What is this book about?
The book is about a mother (Kayla) that has embezzled money from the company she worked for in order to provide a life saving treatment for her daughter. Her Boss Gage always had his sights set on Kayla and given that Kayla was stealing from him gave him the perfect opportunity to take advantage of the situation by making Kayla his slave.
This book was dark, short and sweet. I liked the fact that the author got straight to the point of the story by setting the stage early. The story starts out with Gage informing Kayla that he found out that she was stealing from him and he was offering her an ultimatum.
Kayla: Do I have a Choice?Gage: Of course, just as you have the option of backing out of our agreement whenever you wish. That’s the beauty of this the choice is yours”
Wow. Not only was Gage confident and sexy he was also a smug SOB. At first I hated Gage for taking advantage of Kayla. How could he do that to her I was furious. I know she stole the money but she had a good dang reason too. I thought to myself, would I do the same thing if I were in Kayla position, probably if there was a chance to save my child.
The author begins to display more of Kayla past and explores more of her pain in order to paint the picture of Kayla’s character. Her past has broken her in ways that are unexplainable and now when she feel she has overcome them she is bought back to face the issues when she submits to his Ultimatum. These old feelings are rehashed and I begin to despise Gage more.
But as the story goes on Kayla character begins to change and while that change is taking place I began to see the characters differently as they are developing.
Kayla: For a few blissful minutes, I forgot how he’d forced me there, forgot about the beating, the humiliation, for the first time in years, I Felt Alive.
I am falling head over heals in love with Gage. I’m so pathetic, I know but you can’t help it. Gage is sexy, strong and in control, that is all the qualities I need in an apha male and if that doesn’t do it for you the steamy scenes in the book will. The ending leaves you drooling and wanting to know more because the book ends after the first weekend encounter.
My Rating and Recommendation:
Overall I completely enjoyed reading the ultimatum. I rated this book 4 out 5 Purple Rant Hearts. I would recommend this book to anyone that enjoys short Dark Erotica story.
