Blurb from Goodreads:
Some men play to win…
Lily would do anything to save the Frazer Center for the Arts—even take on the infamous billionaire Calder Cunningham.
The Cunninghams have long held a reputation for being eccentric—and secretive. When Lily breaks onto their estate, she only wants to find and reason with Calder. The Cunningham family was the Frazer Center’s largest benefactor for years—until Calder took over the family funds and broke the pledge contract without warning. Now the Center is on the brink of closing, and she’s desperate to save the institution her father founded.
But Calder turns out to be more than she bargained for. He’s willing to consider her pleas—but for a price. Lily must indulge his whims, play along with his games—all while confined to his mysterious mansion—or she’ll never get the funds to save the Center. She must decide: play the mouse to his cat, or lose the organization she and her father spent their blood, sweat, and tears to build.
This was also one of the books I won as an ARC and it was very … let us call it saucy! Hmm… There were some intense scenes and I see that the author either knows her art or she did a lot of studying on them. Ok who am I kidding, Calder and Lily are hot together. THERE! I said it! It was never about the art ok? Pushy aren’t you? *wink* There is a very intense scene including art. I think more of us would be interested in art if it was taught to us that way hahaha!
Lily is a very headstrong character, very opinionated and she just goes out for what she believes in. Calder is this strange billionaire guy who stepped on her toes. They end up doing these little wagers, but it seems to me they just do these things because they have this intense connection. And I think it’s kinda hot to play sexy games, don’t you?
The only thing I disliked about the MC is that she goes out to save something and then ends up not talking about it after she kept insisting on it? And you hate someone you barely know? But to be fair, it is not something that really matters in the book, this is just something that was going on in my mind while reading. But then again, it fits with the whole persona of Lily
