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.

We all love our hot, sexy books and this one will not disappoint! We meet Kyrie St. Claire who seems to be shit out of luck. She loses her job, is running out of money, and seems to have more responsibilities than she knows what to do with. She is responsible for her brother, her mother, and herself—ever since her father was murdered.
“Before I went from innocent, naïve, privileged college girl to primary breadwinner for three people, one of whom didn’t even recognize me most days. Before life went completely down the drain, putting all my dreams out reach, leaving me desperate, exhausted, stressed, and frustrated.”
Kyrie is lost. Running out of options. She returns home with her box of belongs from her lost job and grabs the mail. After crying over her lonely little cup of Chobani, she eyes a mysterious envelope. Inside—a check for TEN THOUSAND FREAKIN DOLLARS!!! Holy mother of all things lucky!!! She and her best friend, Layla, run over all different scenarios of who could have sent her the money.
“I don’t see how I can not cash it. I’ll just have to hope I don’t end up owing, like, Sal the Slicer or something.”
And so begins the pattern—each month another check arrives. She is baffled. Has no clue who could be sending her this money. But she’s desperate, so she spends it. Each month that passes, she uses the money to survive. Finally, the cryptic message accompanied with each check makes sense.
“You belong to me.”
Oh shit. Oh crappety crap. Mother freakin hell.
Finally the day comes where she meets her maker. She is “collected” and must face the person who she “belongs to”.
That’s when we meet HIM.
He’s a mystery. His voice, his touch. He is just… WOW!!!
“Who—who are you? Why am I here?”
“You don’t need my name just yet. As to why you’re here? …You’re here because I own you, Kyrie.”
OMG! My stomach was all a flutter. He is just HOLY HOTNESS!!! He arouses with a single word, a single touch, a single breath. Hell, I was DYING!! The things that come out of his mouth—my God, I thought I’d die!!!
“I’ve barely touched you, barely begun to kiss you, only just learning the secrets of your body, but already you react so beautifully. Kyrie…Kyrie…you are so beautiful. Such a precious thing, and I simply cannot wait to make you sing, to make your body hum and shiver for me.”
Ok… he had me at “I’ve barely touched you…”
He has a secret from his past—one he tells her will change the way she feels once she discovers the truth. Can she get past it? Can she accept it?
