Author: Pam Godwin
Desperate men do desperate things.
When Decker Gabrielli hits rock bottom, he accepts a job as a hired companion at Infidelity.
Surrendering a year of his life to a woman he’s never met might be the worst idea ever. But money, prestige, and sex are powerful incentives. That is, until the job becomes more than a contractual agreement.
Hard limits are breached, panties are shredded, and rules are broken.
In the end, his secret to getting ahead is…her.
Incentive is one of those rare novellas that builds a rich, immersive story while delivering an emotional wallop. You can’t help but be wildly empathetic to these characters and their vulnerabilities.
Decker Gabrielli is out of options. No job. No money. Just days away from losing his apartment. He’s desperate. Desperate enough to sign a one-year contract with Infidelity to be the “companion” of a woman he has never met.
Famous, gorgeous, wealthy, Laynee Somerset has her reasons for hiring Infidelity to find her a “companion”. But when Decker arrives, he isn’t at all what she asked for. Too imposing, too dominant. She just hopes he will abide by her rules, her hard limits.
But for Decker, there is no other choice. The only way to Laynee’s heart is to break the rules.
Both of these characters are damaged souls with a whole host of emotional baggage they need to work through. I love how this author showed the give and take of Decker and Laynee’s emotional and sexual progress over time. Their gradual romance was both moving and downright dirty.
Sizzling chemistry, smoking hot dirty talk and wildly hot sex with a touch of the unexpected, this book was as hot as it was emotional. With the depth of a full-length novel in a novella, I high recommend this one. Carve out some time for yourself and read this standalone in one sitting. You won’t be sorry.
