The ad reads: Young woman (American only) willing to engage in domination roleplay. No BDSM. Salary: $1,000,000 upon completion of contract. Length of employment: 30 consecutive nights.
Drowning in debt, Melina Wynth is going under for the third time. With a dead-end job and a disabled brother dependent on her, the ad in the paper could be the lifeline to keep her from sinking. Reeling in her courage, she casts her line.
Synjyn McGregor is a shark—a very wealthy shark from Down Under—and his bite could prove to be her undoing. But Lina is determined she isn’t going to allow him to get away. The length of employment might read thirty nights, but she suspects he is fishing for something more.
Synjyn needs a woman who will love him—mentally and physically—as never before. A woman whose touch will not only put the billionaire in his place but keep him there…begging for more. He will quickly realize Lina is made for Syn.
Review: If you are expecting this to be a typical story of a poor girl who gets swept away by a handsome rich man, be prepared to be completely overwhelmed. 30 Days of Syn is a true diamond in the rough featuring complex characters who experience the gamut of human emotion.
Just when I thought it was safe to predict what would happen next, author Charlotte Boyett-Compo provided yet another twist and turn to the storyline. The incorporation of New Zealand slang added an interesting element that gave me a real taste of the characters.
If there were a contest for broken characters, Synjyn McGregor would be among the nominees. He is a dynamic character who makes me want to smack him one minute and then hug him tightly the next. I was pleased to see that Melina retained a feisty attitude throughout the story without turning into a doormat. The cast of supporting characters is also well developed.
From an emotional standpoint, this is a story that fully engages all senses for the reader. There is plenty of laughter and tears to go around. By the time I finished the book, I felt a strong connection to these characters. The heat level is carried out throughout each encounter, moving the intensity meter well beyond the spicy mark.
Whether it is the smooth writing style or the way the author chose to spin the storyline, this is one of those unforgettable stories that will have a lasting place on my keeper shelf.
