No one knows how new members are selected to the board of Hale Banking and Holding. But there are rumors of a sordid rite of initiation.
Whispers how one woman and nine men disappear into a boardroom.
This time, that woman will be me.
The Hale family owns everything—the eighth largest bank in the world, everyone in our town, even the mortgage on my parents’ mansion. And now Royce Hale wants to own me.
He is charming. Seductive. Ruthless. But above all, he’s the prince of lies. My body may tighten with white-hot desire under his penetrating gaze, but I refuse to enjoy it.
I’ll make a deal with the devil to save my family and sell myself to the Hales. But Royce will never own my heart.

    This book series is SO FREAKING GOOD!!!! Must read. I loved it because it was different and unique, not like any book I’ve read before!
  • Good but the sequel is creepy

    By thismanmustbestopped
    This book has a dark-and-twisted vibe but nothing out of my comfort zone. However, if you can’t resist reading the sequel to a cliffhanger, avoid this book. The next book gets much much worse. The creep factor is so high that it’s more gothic or horror than romance or erotica, so I can’t recommend the series overall. I do highly recommend the Blindfold Club series by this author.

  • Absolutely

    This series is genuinely fantastic. I read an exorbitant amount of books, especially in this genre. I think this first in the series was free as a promotion but I absolutely would gladly pay full price, and have for the rest of the series. The pacing is perfect, the story is at first a bit incredulous (because, fiction) which is fine! But it develops into a complex story with believable yet intense relationship dynamics with a tension that stays consistent from book to book, through every plot twist. The drama doesn’t at all come across at as gimmicky, and as the characters navigate each move, it’s genuinely hard to know which direction things will go; when it seems obvious, I find myself, as the reader, afraid to hope it will be what I want in case it’s not, as well as wondering if maybe I really do want it to be different than I hope. I never knew who was making what move for what reason, and if what’s on the surface is really what’s going on, which just underscores the excellent story telling and keeps the pace moving. The antagonist is very well developed, a complex character that we see a few facets of with glimmers of a few others, and as the reader I’m never sure which one will turn front and center. The protagonist is not shallow, she’s smart, calculating, earnest, and you really care for her. She’s not incredibly deep but she is interesting and she is steady and consistent throughout each pace and each book. The other main character really similar in that they aren’t shallow, they’re smart & cunning, not incredibly deep or complex but steady throughout, but well written so that you’re not sure if what you’re seeing is what you’re seeing, but you hope think :) The story itself is smart, and the writing, are consistent, and do not falter. No dialogue or conflict is labored or overly written, and the sex is hot. The series is truly a pleasure to read. So glad I found it.
  • Crazy and sexy

    By steamywaplot
    Wow. People don’t like the dark part of this story but the plot sets it apart from any erotic novel I’ve read.
  • Dynamic Duo

    By aackat
    Loved the dynamic between Marist and Royce and am hoping that he turns out to be a hero and not the villain that he seems to be at the end of the Initiation.
  • Wow

    This was intense! I was shocked, horrified, and angry. The scary part is, this stuff really happens I imagine. Can’t wait to find out what happens in the next book.
  • A great escape!

    By Vbamazon
    A quick moving story with characters you’ll love then hate then wonder how you really feel. It is hard to put down and totally mesmerizing.

    Quite the thriller, I couldn’t put it down. Amazing plot, I’ve never read of that plot in another book. Twists and turns in a hardheaded no nonsense money only family.
  • Effed up, disturbing, disgusting, violating

    By My name is awesome.
    This was my 1st “dark romance” if you will and at first I loved it. But when the bomb dropped and it got into the initiation I was absolutely mortified, appalled, disgusted. It’s not sexy and scandalous it’s flat out effed up and disgusting and wrong. It gave me a major anxiety attack bc just reading it made me feel violated and unsafe and sad. I had to take a 2 hour break to control my breathing and crying. I felt like I was going to throw up and my heart wouldn’t stop pounding in fear. I just wanted to finish it and the ending (a cliffhanger) made me even more sad, violated, and uncomfortable. If you’re into really disturbing books, this is for you. But I will not be reading any more of this series. I am very disappointed, disgusted, and upset after reading this.
