Bought (The Highest Bidder Book 1) by Lauren Landish and Willow Winters

This is the first book in The Highest Bidder series which is also a standalone.

Everything has a price … and I’m willing to pay.

I trust no one. I thrive with control and I’ve learned to be ruthless and cold-hearted. I’m not interested in love, but I still have desires.

That’s where Dahlia comes in. She’s never been a submissive before and I’m eager to train her. When I saw her on stage at the auction, dressed in gold, I knew I had to have her.

She was meant to be a distraction. Nothing more.

One lie changed everything. A lie she told to hide how broken she really is.

I own her for now. She’s mine for an entire month.
But a month isn’t long enough for what I want to do with her. I don’t care what the contract says. I bought her and now she’s mine.

I loved reading this book. The characters were great and I enjoyed the story.

Lucian was a fantastic character. I loved watching his emotions develop as his relationship with Dahlia grew. He is such a considerate Dom, always trying to give her what she needs. I enjoyed watching them slowly open up and seeing him trying to help her with what happened.

Dahlia is a good character. She has trauma from her past which she hides from Lucian. Neither of them expected to develop feelings, but they did.

They were a good match and the spark between them was on fire. It was nice watching them grow into something real. I just wish we got to see more of them together without the contract. I felt the situation with Lucian’s ex-wife was left unresolved as well.

Overall, I really enjoyed reading this book and I absolutely loved reading Lucian and Daliah together. Lucian was amazing. I would definitely recommend this book.

My rating: 5/5*
