Pay for Play by Victoria Ashley and Hilary Storm
Narrated by Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross
Standalone, first in a series of interrelated standalones. Erotic Romance.
Holy cow, thank goodness for the hot flashes, because I needed that fan close by when I read Pay for Play (Alphachat.com #1) by Victoria Ashley and Hilary Storm. This book was so crazy hot, but it also had a story I truly enjoyed. Note: I am writing this review nearly 3 weeks after finishing so I may be less detailed than usual.
Lynx is a hot as hell alpha businessman. He owns a bar, but his business that has really taken off is alphachat.com. It’s a live video porn service where women call in to watch men get off. And they pay hundreds of dollars per call.
Rebel is a graphic designer who spends her life working in front of the computer instead of living. She is just starting a new part-time job as a bartender to get herself away from the computer. Her horny friend sets her up with an alphachat account just to get her thinking of sex. After she comes home from her first day of work all hot and bothered because her new boss is dangerously sexy, she decides to check out the website. Imagine her surprise when she finds out the gorgeously sexy naked guy on the other side of the computer is her boss!
“How the hell am I supposed to work for someone that has this much power over not just me, but my body?”
Lynx actually had a house built especially so these guys that work for him can all live there together, so the side characters are just more hot and sexy men! The storyline revolves around the guys and alphachat almost as much as the romance, but that was just fine with me.
Despite what Lynx does for a living, you never doubted what he felt for Rebel right away.
“You have my head all fucked up with thoughts of you and you don’t have the slightest clue what you’re doing to me.
I like you Rebel. I could give a shit I’m your boss. I don’t care for rules, much.
But Rebel, on the other hand, had all sorts of doubts (wouldn’t you if you knew that women paid thousands just to see your man’s dick?) so she does a few stupid moves out of miscommunication and jealousy. The book was 5 stars for the first half, but she fought the relationship for a bit too long for my taste, and the second half just seemed a little too over-the-top, but I was still totally enjoying it.
- One of the hottest books this year.
- Lots of humor and banter.
- I really liked Rebel.
- Lynx was a total alpha, and made it clear how much he wanted her.
- Good set up for future books.
- Loved the narration.
- It was a little over-the-top silly.
- The piercing party. Um, can they jerk on camera and fuck non-stop right after that?
- She fought her feelings for too long and fucked up big time.
His voice was perfect. Deep and sexy. She was young and cool and normal sounding. This was one of my favorite duos.
The Down & Dirty:
Rating: 4.25 stars, 5 Heat, 5 narration
