Anything He Wants
St. Martin's Griffin / November 27, 2012 / $14.99 print, $9.99 digital
Lucy Delacourt's temp position isn't quite her dream job but it pays the bills. The highlight of her day is riding the elevator in the mornings with a handsome stranger. Tall, dark, and sexy as hell, Lucy knows he's way out of her league, but a girl can look, right?
Everything changes the day the stranger seduces her. Completely out of character, she yields without a fight, but she has no idea her wanton acts with a man whose name she doesn't know will change her life forever. Because the sexy stranger is none other than Jeremiah Hamilton, billionaire CEO of Hamilton Industries, and one taste isn't nearly enough to satisfy his need. As the billionaire pulls Lucy deeper into his world of high stakes business deals and ruthless takeovers, he demands nothing less than her complete surrender. But even as enemies seek deadly revenge against him, she’ll discover that her greatest threat is falling for her fiercely guarded boss…and yielding to her own darkest needs.
Releasing novels in serial form is not a new concept. It started in the 17th century, but was really at its height in the 19th century in England. Robert Louis Stevenson, Thomas Hardy, and Charles Dickens serialized novels during the Victorian period, as did Stephen King with The Green Mile in the 1990s. But I’m an immediate satisfaction kind of gal, so I find the serial novel to be very anxiety-inducing.
Thankfully, by the time I discovered new-to-me author Sara Fawkes and her serial erotic romance, Anything He Wants, the fifth (and final) installation was releasing so I didn’t have to wait.
