From young heartbreak to a virginity auction, from the chance meeting to the happily ever after, twenty-one exclusive stories explore first love in all its forms. This set includes almost 200,000 words of steamy encounters and sweet romance.
Worldbuilding: This story takes place in one huge mansion and then the next. There isn’t much setting description except for that Rose ends up in Jaxon’s house.
Characters: The main characters in this story are Rose Jonathan and Jaxon Caldwell. Rose is a shy good working girl who takes care of her sick bother, all while trying to better herself. But desperate times calls for desperate measures and selling her virginity seems to be the only way she can make some good money. But she has no idea that she has caught somebody’s eye long ago. Nor does she know that she is walking into something that has been orchestrated by one man since the very beginning.
Plot: The whole story is about how Rose is selling her virginity to the highest bidder, because being a secretary while finishing college and caring for her ailing brother doesn’t pay the bills all that well. But when Rose meets the man who is going to take her virginity she is in for a very big shock.
Writing: This short story is told in third person points of view of Rose and Jaxon. It is a standalone short story that ends in a happily for now way.
Curb Appeal: I love this cover but I’m not really sure it represents this story all that well. The blurb gives the gist of the story but leaves a lot out as well! I like that it gives more information than the other stories in the anthology, but also that it doesn’t give everything away!
Utlimately: I liked this short story. I wished that it had a more developed ending like it did with the beginning because the ending was a little too abrupt for my tastes. All in all, if you end up picking this anthology up I would recommend giving this story a chance!
I couldn't have said that better myself! Reading is huge passion of mine. And I'm glad that books not only expand my world view but that they bring the wonderful people who created them into my life. You can always find me with a book and an eclectic mix of music on. I am a HEA junkie extraordinaire! I am a Beta reader, who loves helping authors bring their characters to life. As well as an avid romance reader (every and anything ;D) turned aspiring author.
