The first time it happened, it seemed like an impossible miracle. Bills were piling up, adding up to more money than I could ever make. Mom's hospital bills. My baby brother's tuition. My tuition. Rent. Electricity. All of it on my shoulders. And I had just lost my job. There was no hope, no money in my account, no work to be found. And then, just when I thought all hope was lost, I found an envelope in the mail. No return address. My name on the front, my address. Inside was a check, made out to me, in the amount of ten thousand dollars. Enough to pay the bills and leave me some left over to live on until I found a job. Enough to let me focus on classes. There was no name on the check, just "VRI Inc.," and a post office box address for somewhere in the city. No hint of identity or reason for the check or anything. No mention of repayment, interest, nothing…except a single word, on the notes line: "You." Just those three letters.
If you receive a mysterious check, for enough money to erase all your worries, would you cash it?
The next month, I received another check, again from VRI Incorporated. It too contained a single word: "belong."
A third check, the next month. This time, two words. Four letters. "To me."
The checks kept coming. The notes stopped. Ten thousand dollars, every month. A girl gets used to that, real quick. It let me pay the bills without going into debt. Let me keep my baby brother in school and Mom's hospice care paid for. How do you turn down what seems like free money, when you're desperate? You don't. I didn't.
And then, after a year, there was a knock on my door. A sleek black limousine sat on the curb in front of my house. A driver stood in front of me, and he spoke six words: "It's time to pay your debt."
Would you have gotten in?
It turns out $120,000 doesn't come free.
Sacrifice: an act of giving up something valued for the sake of something else regarded as more important or worthy.
No other options. No hope. No one to turn to. What would you do? Is life a game? The gauntlet has been thrown in the form of twelve $10,000 checks. Do you play?
“You don’t need my name just yet. As to why you’re here?”
“You’re here because I own you, Kyrie.”
“Alpha” pulls Kyrie into a world unlike any she has known as he presents her with an offer not to be refused. Kyrie learns through trust anything is possible. “Alpha’s” calculated movements lend the perfect mix of wickedly seductive and intensely hot.
“Say it Kyrie. I want to hear you say it. I go crazy when you say dirty things to me, baby. You make me wild when you tell me what you want from me.”
Aside from the hot factor at the core this is a beautiful love story. Trust and undying devotion pave the way for both Kyrie and “Alpha” as they play a wick game of cat and mouse. Will the new mystery man in Kyrie’s life prove to be her knight in shining armor or will the pressure of “Alpha’s” demands break the fragile walls Kyrie created out of necessity?
Jasinda always offers a well written and thought provoking story. You want to purchase this one for the hot alpha male and four mysterious words…you belong to me, however, pull back the layers and you will be pleasantly surprised with what you find. In our darkest moments we find our greatest strengths. These two characters offer a full range of emotions and in true Wilder fashion you will find yourself interwoven into their stories. Can you buy love? Some say it don’t cost a thing but $120,000 is a great starting point.
