Eve White is about to be sold to the highest bidder.
Desperate to escape a life she didn’t choose, she’s sent away from her foster home one fateful night to be sold as another man’s property. Determined to survive by any means necessary, she makes it her goal to cash-in on her circumstances and run, because Eve’s only focus is her boys. The foster brothers she grew up protecting are her only concern—sheltering them and herself, the best that she can. But a half a million dollars for two years of her time paid by a sweet, silent, dashing man is one wild card Eve didn’t see coming.
Asher Strong has spent his life with one solitary focus: her.
Haunted by a single night from his past, Asher has made it his life’s work to right the wrongs, but from the moment he lays eyes on the raven-haired beauty, everything changes. He becomes obsessed with protecting her, showering her in the love she never had as a child, and welcoming her into his home and his life forever. It isn’t long before the sexual tension between them ignites into a blaze that they are powerless to contain, until one more fateful night threatens to shatter it all.
Eve White is orphaned at age 6 and ends up in the foster system with Momma Judy and 3 foster brothers. Now that she has turned 18, Momma Judy is going to sell her to a stranger for money.
Asher Strong has made it his life’s mission to find and protect her. He wants to right the wrongs from a night many years ago.
Eve’s goal is to take the opportunity of the sale to get away from the abusive Momma Judy with hopes of being able to someday help her brothers too. Will she survive her new life under the control of some stranger?
I enjoyed the story of Eve and Asher. It was a pretty quick read and I felt their connection. There was a bit of mystery surrounding how Asher knew Eve and why he was drawn to her. At times I did have to go back and re-read to follow the flow as there were some choppy spots. I was happy to find an HEA with an epilogue. I can’t wait for more from Ms. Cole.

“You were lovely tonight, Allie.” The man in charge from earlier reached for my palm and placed a soft kiss on the knuckle.
“I’d like to introduce you to Asher Strong. He’s quite enthusiastic about spending time with you.” The man’s eyes twinkled as they watched me turn to Mr. Strong.
I swallowed the fear and looked him directly in the eye, extending a hand. “I’m afraid we weren’t properly introduced earlier. Lovely to meet you.” I said the wordswith a saccharine bite.
Asher’s eyes flared for an instant as they dipped from
my full, painted red lips, then back to my eyes. His gaze narrowed for a minute before he extended his hand and took mine. His touch was softer than I’d imagined. His eyes cut across the room and said so much behind the dark and intimidating gaze, but his hand was gentle, his touch respectful. He immediately removed his tux jacket and wrapped it around me, buttoning it up. His eyes quickly touched upon my bare cleavage, and his nostrils flared. “Grab me a scarf,” he ordered. The next thing I knew, one was draped across my chest, hiding every piece of exposed flesh.
My heart sped to a gallop when he raised my hand and placed a kiss at the top of my knuckles. “It’s a pleasure,” he murmured against my skin and sent flames all along my milky white flesh.
