“Pretty Woman meets Indecent Proposal in Explicitly Yours, a seductive series that’ll leave your heart racing.”—Louise Bay, USA Today Bestselling Author
Lola Winters doesn’t think she can escape her life as a waitress—until she receives a shocking proposition from a sexy stranger. Wealthy businessman Beau Olivier wants Lola for a night, and in order to get her, he’s willing to make her dreams come true.
But Beau’s conditions are explicit. From sunset to sunrise, Lola must submit all of herself to him—body, mind, and soul. Because nothing is more important to Beau than maintaining control...especially over his possessions.
Sometimes, though, things don’t go according to plan. What if one night isn't enough? What if come sunrise, Beau isn’t ready to say goodbye?
Indecent proposal indeed
This was a good start to the series. Lola and Johnny have been together for 9 years. They manage a failing bar that is rich in rock n roll history. There is talk that the bar will be sold. Leaving their futures in the balance. What will they do if the bar gets sold? In comes Beau. He's rich and has walked into their bar and has taken a liking to Lola. This is where things get interesting. Beau offers to give them money to buy the bar. Only if he gets one night with Lola.
This is the first book in a series. It does continue with the same characters. So you don't get a resolution to the story on this book.
This was my first book by this Author and it definitely won't be my last.
A proposition for one night with Lola.
Night Fever was about Beau, a founding partner with Bolt Ventures, who was instantly captivated by Lola. Lola was a waitress at a popular historical bar that her and her boyfriend Johnny worked at. Lola and Johnny had been working side by side for eight years. The popular landmark bar suffered a decline in business causing the owner to shut it down or sell it.
The premise of the story was about the proposal Beau made with Lola. The story focused on the contractual arrangement illustrating how money could change their lives.
Beau was a business man who managed the arrangement with the same formalities as any other contract. Beau hoped to eliminate any ideas of betrayal by creating a contract where the grey lines of cheating could be dismissed. Beau wanted Lola to focus solely on him and in order to achieve complete submission he had to distract her with his carnal needs of seduction.
With a contract, rules, and money all players conducted this as a business arrangement from a paper perspective. Once the night began Beau was in charge.
I found the sex typical for this type of arrangement. The connection between Beau and Lola was carnal and sinful. Their arrangement was treated in the same manner as an affair. Time was limited therefore the time spent was carefully calculated.
We were reminded constantly that Lola loved Johnny. Lola's feelings and emotions were expressed leaving you to question Johnny's feelings. Lola's concern to make Johnny's dreams come true showed how unselfish she was.
Originally I was not keen on reading another story about a proposition of sex for money. Jessica made it appealing and interesting with her attention to conduct this as business with benefits.
“I’ll eat you slowly with attention to every bite. I’ll drink you like fine wine, savoring your taste, inhaling your scent, letting you own me for as long as you’re in my mouth". Favorite quote from story.
A sexy, fun, and edgy must read!
