For fans of Fifty Shades of Grey and Bared to You comes a wickedly erotic new novel of innocence, desire, and unbridled pleasure.
Delaine Talbot has a secret. When a matter of life and death threatens to tear apart her family, Delaine makes the ultimate sacrifice. She auctions herself off at Chicago’s most exclusive erotic club. Now she belongs to Noah Crawford, a wealthy mogul who introduces her to a seductive feast of the senses, awakening desires she only dreamed about.  
Noah doesn’t know why Delaine sold her body for a cool two mil. But it’s the perfect business arrangement. The inexperienced beauty will learn to satisfy his every sensual need, yet never touch his heart. Almost immediately their relationship generates heat—in more ways than one. When they fight, they take no prisoners. When they love, they show no mercy. When they’re together, they never want to leave each other’s arms. But soon, their intense, physical bond will take an unexpected turn—evolving into something neither has bargained for: the promise of a lasting love.

Cover:  A pretty simple cover.

I had no idea what to read.  So I picked up A Million Dirty Secrets thinking it would be a quick, easy read.  And it was.
It's being compared to Fifty Shades and Pretty Woman.  
I think it would like to think it's like that, but unfortunately it didn't quite reach that level.
I did enjoy the story, but some of the writing really irritated me.  I think the author tried to inject a little too much humour, and it just came off as silly and immature.
E.g, 'The wonder peen' and 'Double agent cooch'.
I did you not.
I thought Ana in Fifty Shades referring to her 'Inner Goddess' got irritating.
Not as much as this though.  Come on, who would say that?!?!  No one, that's who.
Also, there were so many pop culture references, trying to compare itself to them, Pretty Woman, Indiana Jones, etc, etc.
But, something kept me reading.
The cliff hanger ending would definitely make me want to pick up the conclusion, because I do definitely want to see how it ends.
2/5 stars.

Read from November 16 to 18, 2014
