A Deal With Benefits

A Deal With Benefits
Susanna Carr
Ashley made a deal with the devil to keep her island home. She's not making the monthly payments and was hoping that one more celebrity guest at her remote resort home would give her enough cash to make the payments. But when her mortgage is purchased and she receives an eviction notice, she goes to the office of the new owner to plead for her home. She is in for the surprise of her life when she sees the man behind the desk.

I really hate writing these types of reviews. I was pretty sure I'd read some things by this author previously and enjoyed them. But this book was not my style. The cover was too cheesy. The story was stilted and unbelievable. Both characters were not endearing or relate-able. The male character was egotistical, rude, and a real jerk. The female character was weak and emotional. I just couldn't wrap my head around this story ever happening. But it wasn't enough out there to be a fantasy. I know that there are a lot of people who will enjoy the angst and drama, the sex (quite a bit of that) and the emotions. Sadly, I just wasn't one of them.

I received this book free of charge from Goodreads in exchange for my honest review.
