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.
this book was sooooo good! but I wished at the end they were together but you won’t always get what you want! I love them together!55
I couldn’t put this book down and now onto the next one.55
I was wet from the mere words… but for her to go by through that and NOT through herself at him is quite amazing. Well written definitely deserves five stars.55
Intriguing, read in one sitting, overwhelming love, happy ending. The three supposing roles were not intrusive.55
Loved reading this book55
Dang!! That was a hot, steamy read! I want a Valentine Roth to find me! There were a lot of errors in the book but i was able to get through it ok.55
I like a good sexy read, but if I wanted to read a book specifically for sex scenes I would have bought one. The only “good” parts of this book were the actual sex scenes and the rest of it was worthless. The storyline is unbelievable, and not in a good way. I have read MANY romance novels and this is one of my least favorite reads. If the author could put as much thought and detail into the book as she does in the sex scenes I may have actually enjoyed it. I got to page 197 (NOT an easy task, but I just kept hoping it would get better!!) and just quit reading. I’m not attached to these characters AT ALL and am SO GLAD this book was free.25
DEFINITELY worth the money and the time. This is one of the best books I’ve read on this platform, and I’ve read about 20 so far. Excellent book, excellent writing, excellent story. 10/10!55
One of my favorite books55
