A Million Dirty Secrets (Million Dollar Duet 1) - C.L. Parker

The Book
Release Date: 27 August 2013

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.

A Million Dirty Secrets is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

My Opinion  3 STARS
**Provided by Netgalley and Random House Publishing Group - Bantam Dell for an honest review**

Im not sure if I liked this book or if I disliked it.

The premise is good.  Girl sells her virgin self to the highest bidder at auction and promises to live with them for two years.  Once bought her cherry is popped, she falls in love yadda yadda.

The problem, even though there is a decent story line behind it is that I didn't find Noah to be much of the alpha male that was expected.  Also Delaine falls flat as the strong heroine and comes across as weak and whinny.

There are LOTS of sex scenes that are steamy hot, but having been compared to Fifty Shades and Bared to you, there wasn't really any kink involved, just lots of blurb about them 'doing it' in various places etc.

This is a 'meh' book.  Yes I would like to read the next book in the series just to see what happens next,  but its certainly not one that I would want to read again.

The author also had an interesting use of words for example using coochie to express the name of her nether regions.  Words that are no longer seem fashionable but slightly childish.

This a book to get from the library not buy as although the story is good you will still sigh at having paid for it.
