Lust is a dangerous thing. It can make you believe things that are not real. It can seduce your mind and lead it blindfolded to the cliff that will be its demise.
What would you do if you could leave your life? Wake up one day and be someone else?
I signed the contract. I left Candace Tapers and her slutty, strip club life behind, abandoned every part of that life with one hesitant swipe of my pen.
The agreement was clear:
2. Photo ops
3. No romance
"I need a wife. I am not signing up for romance, or affection, or a full time job. I will not love you. I will have no use for you other than sex and photo ops."
Sex with Nathan was easy. More than easy. Panty-melting, can-never-get-enough HOT. I had begun to think that I could live this new life, showered in luxuries, orgasms, and diamonds.
Then I started tripping over secrets.
Disclaimer: The Dumont Diaries contains a strong alpha male, super hot explicit sex, and twists and turns that might cause unnatural heart palpitations. This book does not contain BDSM elements.
*The Dumont Diaries was originally released, and is still available as a four-part miniseries. This book combines the four pieces of the miniseries into one, full-length novel
Things didn't turn out as Candance had hoped. Her event planner degree is going to waste as she works at the Crystal Palace to keep afloat. Then she is whisked away, but a client. He needs her to act as his wife in all matters. Bear in mind there will be no romance, just the title of wife and sex. In return, he will pay the bills for her father's care and keep her in fashionable clothing. This is appearance only, plus sex.
Candy takes the offer. It's the best offer she's had before, not only that he'll take care of her father and has been kindly to her. How bad could it be? Bad. But then Candy realizes she has an ace up her sleeve. She needs to take care of herself now. Needs to figure things out for the future. Because there is no future with Mr. Dumont. At least not for her and him.
I liked the book, It did feel rushed in a few places. Like the ending. It was done and over so quickly I'm not sure I read it all. It was a blur of words and actions and then DONE! Maybe it's because I enjoyed it, that it just read so fast.
