Description from Amazon.com:
Struggling artist Avery Ross is barely scraping by. Bartending at a trendy New York City restaurant for an overbearing boss and two weeks away from losing her apartment to a condo developer, she’s desperate for a break. So when she’s offered a temporary housesitting job, she takes it. Living at one of the poshest addresses in Manhattan is like entering a new world–one that catapults her into the orbit of billionaire Dominic Baine, the darkly handsome, arrogantly alpha resident of the building’s penthouse. What begins as a powerful attraction soon explodes into a white-hot passion neither can deny. Yet as scorching as their need for each other is, Avery doesn’t expect Nick’s interest in her to last. Nor does she dare to dream that the desire she feels for this scarred, emotionally remote man could deepen into something real. For Avery has secrets of her own–and a past that could destroy her . . . and shatter everything she and Nick share.
FOR 100 DAYS is the first novel in a passionate new contemporary romance trilogy from New York Times and #1 international bestselling author Lara Adrian. Coming later in 2016: FOR 100 NIGHTS and FOR 100 REASONS.
Whew! If you want a lusty novel, then here you go. Lara Adrian has given us a young woman, Avery, damaged by a past she holds secret and a early 30ish billionaire, Nick, who falls instantly in lust with Avery. The sizzle is mutual. We slowly learn about Avery’s background but by the end of the book Nick is still somewhat a mystery. We may learn what that is in the next book of this trilogy. Side Character Tasha is Avery’s best friend and co-worker. I enjoyed the counterpoint of Tasha’s normal family life as opposed to Avery’s passionate affair.
I have always been a huge fan of Lara Adrian’s Midnight Breed Series of Paranormal romance novels so it was a no brainer for me that I would enjoy reading this book although it is far from the vampire genre. She brings her shrewd ability to tell a story that is both compelling and hot-as-hell. These characters are likable and flawed. Nick is everything a girl could want and Avery is every guys dream but I was still more drawn to Tasha. I’m hoping for more of her in the series as it unfolds.
Yes, a recommendation from me but be aware that the amount of sex is over the top.
I received this book free for review from the publisher.
