The rules:

No dating.
No sex outside of the game.
No disclosing the terms of the contract.

Rules were made to be broken, right?

Eight weeks ago I signed a contract. One that seemed like a good idea at the time. A handsome bachelor, luxury accommodations, and a chance to win a prize my family desperately needed. There were some rules though. Lots of them actually. Follow the script, no dating, sex, or disclosing the terms of the deal. After my self-imposed moratorium on men the last year, it wouldn’t be hard to live up to my end of the bargain…so I thought.Until I realized the deal I’d made was with the devil…and I was in love with his dirty-talking brother

My Review

Vi Keeland’s new book is a complete flirty, fun and sexy read that I enjoyed cover-to-cover.

Throb is that perfect escape from reality right into the world of … reality?

Meet Kate a young woman who is in need of some money, well a lot of money. Money for school as well as to help her family.  So what does Kate do? 

Whatever it takes and lucky for her she stumbles upon the perfect opportunity. 
One that will change her life more than she could have even dreamed.

This is a hard one to review folks, as I don’t want to give anything away. 
So it’s a short and sweet one this time.

OMG! What a fun and unique story line! I have never read a book with this kind of plot or setting and I have to say it was such a refreshing and fun change.

Throb is such a smooth read that I pretty much read it in one sitting.

I loved the quasi-love triangle-almost type of tale Keeland spins and found myself torn in parts where I couldn’t decide which guy I liked more….

Bahahahahaaha! Yeah, right as soon a Cooper came on to the page I was like YES! I was totally smitten with his bossy sexy alpha tendencies, controlling ways, dirty mouth and the best of all his determination to get the girl. Gah! Loved me some Cooper.

Now Kate and Cooper were amazing together, full of chemistry, passion and bloody hot sex. 
Holy shit, are theses two sexy!

Yes, yes the resident rocker known as dickhead had some game giving him some points but to nowhere near that of Coop. 

Throb was an unexpected read that gave me everything I love as a reader…hot sex, hot men and oh, did I say hot alpha men?  Along with enough angst, ups and downs to keep me wheeled in. 
As always Keeland delivers!

Every girl needs three things
1.  A flutter in her belly when she meets him for the first time.
Meet Cooper
My lips brush the top of her hand lightly, my tongue sneaking out to fleetingly touch her skin.  The brief contact stirs an ache inside me.  This woman tugs at something—more than arousal—something that makes me want to slow down time just to spend a few more minutes standing here.
“Did you just…” she stammers a bit.
“Did I just what?”
She squints at me.  “You know.”
“Do I?”
“I felt your tongue on my hand.  You…you licked me.”
I’d been dying to run my tongue along her neck all evening, although I hadn’t really meant to be so crude about it.  It just sort of …happened.  “I wouldn’t say licked, maybe just a little taste.”
“So you tasted me?”
My entire body suddenly has interest in this conversation.  “I suppose I did.  But it wasn’t nearly enough.  That brings us back to my invitation for dinner.  Tomorrow night?”
“I can’t.”
“The day after then?”
She laughs and shakes her head.  The sound makes me smile.
“Good night, Cooper.”  She pulls the driver’s side door shut and leaves me standing there…for a full five minutes after she’s gone.
2.  A best friend to talk about him to.
Meet Sadie
“And I kissed him when we were in his office.”
“How was his office?”
“Really?  That’s what you want to know.  Not how was the kiss or aren’t you in breach of your contract?  How was his office?”
“You can tell a lot about a man by his office.”
I gulp another unladylike sip from my wine glass.  “His office was beautiful.  Sleek, overlooking the city.  It oozed power.”
“Nice.  Bet he fucks like he owns you.”
The thought of what he’s like in bed is enough to make me lose my train of thought.
“Go on,” Sadie prods.
I don’t continue immediately.
“You forgot what you were up to because you were thinking of him fucking you like he owns you, didn’t you?”  My best friend smirks knowingly.
“Shut up.”  I pause.  “Anyway, I don’t know what I’m going to do.”
“Well, him.  Obviously.”
“I wish it were that easy.”
3.  A gentleman that turns into a bossy dirty talker in the bedroom.
Cooper – behind closed doors.

“You haven’t even begun to see bossy yet.  Tonight I’m going to tell you to do things, and you’re going to do them.  When I tell you to open wider, or take my cock deeper, you’re going to listen.  You know why?  Because since the moment we met, all I’ve wanted to do is make you feel good.  Hell, I don’t even need to get off physically.  Because I’m going to get off watching you every minute.  So, yeah, I’m going to be bossy.  Now let’s put the rest of this behind us.  Do you want to be with me tonight?”
After that prelude, I nod my head fast.  I’m no fool.  Who wouldn’t?
