Struggling artist Avery Ross is barely scraping by. Bartending at a trendy New York City restaurant for an overbearing boss and two weeks away from losing her apartment to a condo developer, she's desperate for a break. So when she's offered a temporary housesitting job, she takes it. Living at one of the poshest addresses in Manhattan is like entering a new world-one that catapults her into the orbit of billionaire Dominic Baine, the darkly handsome, arrogantly alpha resident of the building's penthouse. What begins as a powerful attraction soon explodes into a white-hot passion neither can deny. Yet as scorching as their need for each other is, Avery doesn't expect Nick's interest in her to last. Nor does she dare to dream that the desire she feels for this scarred, emotionally remote man could deepen into something real. For Avery has secrets of her own-and a past that could destroy her and shatter everything she and Nick share. Contains mature themes.

I devoured For 100 Days in just 2 days. I’m sure part of it was that I was in the right mood, but I think I would have enjoyed it any time I picked it up!

I loved the characters. Avery is a struggling artist who moved to the big city to pursue her passion and, although she paints, her bills are being paid by her job as a bartender. Working for a really shitty manager. She lucks into house sitting this amazing apartment for 3 months and, what do you know, an incredibly wealthy, sexy resident and her end up connecting. Dominic (sexy resident) has the dark thing going on. But there’s more to him than that and I loved starting to peel away at those layers.

This is an extremely sexy contemporary – I would put it in the light erotica zone. There’s some BDSM teasing, but not actual BDSM, for example. Dominic and Avery have incredible chemistry and those sexy times probably had a lot to do with how quickly I read this one. In some ways it reminded me of J.A. Huss, though Huss gets a bit sexier, IMO.

I did have a couple issues, which didn’t overall hurt the story for me though. For one, the scenario that brings Dominic and Avery together is impossible – straight out of fairy tale land. But accept the fairy tale and have fun, right? 🙂 My other issue was that Avery is lying to Dominic the entire book and when it ends she’s STILL lying. This one is a bigger issue for me – I don’t really like plots that center on a lie. And while her lie in this book felt forgivable, I worry that the continuation of lying will bother me for the next book. We’ll see, because I definitely plan to try it!

I really enjoyed the narration, too. Summer Morton’s voices were enjoyable and I will continue listening to the series. I’ll be keeping my eyes out for more books narrated by her. An A performance!

    Wow that sure is fast to finish a book in two days, especially one of that length. It’s nice when you can read a book in the right mood. Those characters who have multiple layers are always fun, especially when you get to discover the different layers of their personality. I can see why the lie plot line would be an issue, I don’t like those either. It always sits wrong with me when characters lie. I hope the lying will be resolved in the next book. Great review!

    Woot! I’m happy to see you enjoyed this one, Berls, since I have it on my shelf as well. 😉 I like the sound of it all with the exception of the lying – but we’ll see, right? Hopefully that’ll be rectified in the second book. And 2 days? That’s impressive.
    I’m currently listening to One Ride by Chelsea Camaron. I spent a lot of time in the car yesterday so I got a big chunk of it listened to. I’m enjoying it – needed something “different” and MC seemed to fit the bill.
    Why am I rambling?? I don’t know! I hope you have a wonderful day!! {{{hugs}}}

    This sounds like a lot of fun and I can see why you gobbled it down in 2 days! I don’t mind the fairy tale scenario that brings them together but I suspect I would have a problem with the lying like you do. Still, overall it sounds like a fun book – especially for the right mood.
