When a contract is not a contract

Control. Submission. Power.

Amy Mendoza knew she'd never have a Cinderella story. She walked away from the ashes of her childhood on her own, and signed her first porn contract the day she turned eighteen. The money's been good, but it's time to walk away again before the life drags her down. When a mysterious stranger offers her an unusual contract—sexual companion to a recently relapsed rock star—she accepts.

Amy quickly and gratefully falls into an easy rhythm of control and submission—but it's not her client who keeps her up at night. Emanuel, lead guitarist and the man who hired her, occupies her thoughts—and soon, her bed. Their connection is intense, and although Amy knows sleeping with Emanuel isn't what she's there for—isn't what she's being paid for—what's between them is too strong to ignore. But there's more to Emanuel than Amy knows, and submitting to him might come at too high a price…

The premise of this novel was interesting and kept me reading to the end to find out what happened.  However, this reader feels that so much more could have been made of this book and the characters in general.  It would have been nice to have had more back story on the two male main characters as I am sure this would be an interesting read, unless this is the subject of another book.

This reader also feels that more could have been made of each sexual encounter.  The transition in some of these scenes made for a clunky read.  It was difficult to work out what was happening and how the characters went from one place to the next in the space of just one sentence.

There is a sort of HEA and this reader, in particular would like to know what happened next.

Full Disclosure: ARC received from Netgalley for an honest review.

I rated this 3 stars on Netgalley and 'It was OK' on Amazon (3 stars) and Goodreads (2 stars).
