Title: Paying Daddy’s Debt
Author: Alexa Riley
Publication: February 8th 2017
When Ash Carpenter imagines a schoolgirl, the image doesn’t match her. She wears long skirts that are sort of frumpy. Her bulky sweaters hide her shape, and her hair is always in a messy bun. Her tennis shoes are clunky and worn, and there are runs in her thick tights. Her dark-framed glasses hide some of her face…but not all of it. Because he’s caught sight of those ice-blue eyes, and they’ve pierced him to his core.
She walks by his office every day, and finally he’s had enough. Ash decides he’s tired of waiting and it’s time to collect what he’s owed. She’ll come with him, because there’s no other choice. She’ll pay her daddy’s debt any way Ash sees fit.
Warning: Oh, honey, this is about to get filthy. If your delicate sensibilities can’t handle the dirty, then step aside for those of us who can. It’s quick, but it’s just the right length, if you know what I mean. *slow wink, elbow nudge, goofy snort*
MY RATING: 3/5
I would like to start off this review that I have read this book for the second time now.
For those who are new to Alexa Riley, here’s what you need to know and what to expect. Alexa Riley writes short novellas following cliche troupes filled with experienced (sometimes inexperienced) dominant men and virgin heroines that are waiting to be taught what to do in the bedroom. It’s erotic fiction filled with multiple sex scenes so don’t expect too much of a plot and character development.
Paying Daddy’s Debt was memorable to say the least or else why would I have gotten back to it to read for the second time? Sometimes, when I’m not in the mood for full-length novels, Alexa Riley provides me just what I need. A story filled with hot sex scenes and the explosive chemistry between two characters. It’s all so cheesy yet I love going back to it. This story is exactly what you expect. A daughter is traded in to pay off her father’s debt but before we go with our pitchforks to burn down Alexa Riley’s house, they do make sure that both parties have given consent to the newly arranged relationship. Our main hero makes sure to convince the heroine that he would never pressure her to do anything she doesn’t want to do nor will he take her out of her house without her giving permission.
I gave this book a one star rating in the past but I can see that I was overly critical, not giving it much of a chance. I changed it to three stars now but it’s definitely not perfect. It was just a little creepy that the hero stalked the heroine and she didn’t know he even existed for all the years that he stalked her but he was already “in love” with her.
I’m a fan of Alexa Riley and this was a solid trashy read.
