For 100 Days

For 100 Days is the first book in Lara Adrian's newest trilogy. The entire trilogy follows Avery Ross and Dominik Bane and the books are definitely not stand alone stories. I have been a fan of Ms. Adrian's for years, so I was really excited when I read about this story. Unfortunately for me, the book fell flat. I wasn't really invested in the story until abut 75% of the way through and I found myself putting the book down to do other things. That is very unusual for me. Normally once I start a book you don't see me until it's done. Now, despite saying that, this wasn't a bad story, it just didn't grip me the way that many books have in the past. Going into this book I didn't realize two things that may have made me reconsider reading it. Those two thing are that the story ends in a cliffhanger and that the book is told in first person from one character's perspective. I'm not a fan of either of those things. I can deal with first person if I must, but it makes for a better story (at least to me) when I get both characters perspectives. The fact that this story ended in a cliffhanger with serious tension between the two main characters does make me want to read more, but I will proceed with the rest of this series with caution. I give this book 3 stars because to me it was only okay. I will continue with the rest of this series, but not necessarily as soon as the books come out.

Just when everything in my life is falling apart, I find a chance to turn it around--to step into someone else's glittering world, if only for a little while. I become someone new, no longer the woman defined by an ugly past, but a woman freer and bolder than myself. A woman who isn't afraid to explore every passion, even at its darkest, with a mysterious and seductive man who believes my mask is real.

Handsome and commanding, enigmatic and irresistible, billionaire Dominic Baine is an obsession I cannot afford and should not risk. He ushers me into consuming new pleasures and addicting new desires, until the line between my real life and the fantasy one I've stolen with him begins to blur.

I know I cannot keep my truth from him. I know my past will not stay buried forever. But before I can make it right, everything comes crashing down. I have deceived this powerful, dangerous man . . . and now there is a price to be paid.
