I'm not sure if it's my misconception or the publishing house's error, but I did not consider this book to be a romance novel. There was sex abound inside, some of which was not my cup of tea, but more than enough to maintain a standing in Erotica. The problem is, the book read more on the scope of self helf from the childhood abuses that molded the heroine into the person she was, and the journey of realization that caused her to let the past go and not define herself by it (with alot of sex thrown in). The heroine's strive for success had nothing to do with "rising up from the squalor of her childhood," but more on her need for control from childhood feelings of powerlessness. The book's cover, which was HOT, was completely misleading. The hero, if you could call him that, had very little interaction with the heroine in this story. I also found it disturbing that a man who cares about a woman and knows of her sexual abuse as an adolescent, would manipulate said woman's need for control as an adult. Why did he think forcing numerous menage a trois' on her with various groups of people, male and female, was the only way for her to release her control and submit? More importantly, how could a person stuck in past feelings of helplessness be impowered by forcibly submitting to various sex acts with unknown individuals? It was distaseful to read about the heroine waking up covered in the bodily fluids of a group of faceless men she did not know. Ugh, NOT HOT!! The ending, left me wanting. The questions were not truly answered and I wanted to know what type of relationship, if any, was going to develop between the hero and heroine. I don't know if this was done purposely to coincide with the other two Odyssey books to be released, as a crossover, or if it was a true ending. Either way, the ending was anti-climatic.
The story has it all; homo-erotic domination and submission, menage a trois and f/f/f menage, anal penetration/stimulation, light voyeurism, cunnilingus and fellatio. It would've been nice if that disclaimer was given in the description of the novel, which would've helped in the decision to purchase.
I'm still a huge fan of KKT and will buy anything she writes, and I'm eagerly awaiting the release of Sream My Name.
She has such a strong desire to always be in control, she is forced to give up her control on the island, during "the auction." The one thing she desires more than anything is to be "number one." On the island all her desires will be fullfilled.
On this island adventure Chase will discover more about herself than she realizes. Chase may be forced into some situations that she may not be totally comfortable with. In doing so she will have to re-exam her life and make some tough decisions.
Not only is AUCTIONED an erotic story but it has an underlying story of a woman coming to grips with her past and striving for change to better herself. There was one part in the story...:"the auction", made me a little leary but it tied in and made sense later on. This was a nice quick read and all the Strebor Quickiez are great for summer reading.

This was erotica done well. The sex scenes were over the top. Extremely passionate, and so well written. The way Kimberly Kaye Terry puts her words together really pulls you into the story, and makes you not want to put it down. There was also an underlying story with Chase, which I don't want to give away, but it does add a certain level of deepness to this book. The only thing I didn't enjoy was that I saw the ending very early on in the book. With that being said the ending was still good, but it did end abruptly and left me wanting more. This is a quickie so it is understandable though.
Now that I've gotten that out of the way . . .. I purchased Auctioned on impulse. My Waldenbooks/Borders is going out of business and their books were 65% off, so being the booklover that I am I went into the store and lost my mind. I bought Auctioned because the cover looked hot. When I finished Auctioned, I went to Amazon to look up everything this author has written. and this is from a woman who demands that her romances have a happily ever after.
Even though this is a short story, the heroine Chase has a depth of character that I haven't found in many full-length novels. She comes off strong but not in a bitchy way. Seeing her back-story (which is beautifully layered in), I understand why she behaved in the way she did. Ms. Terry made it easy for her readers to quickly sympathize and root for the heroine. I understood why she found it impossible to not be in control. When she began to let go and put her faith in others, I nearly stood up and cheered.
Although Auctioned is an erotica novel, it's more than just sex. Auctioned is about accepting your past, learning who you are, and letting go so you can move forward to reach your full potential.
Normally, I demand that my stories have a romantic happily ever after. Auctioned did not and I was totally fine with it. Chase's journey from being a woman so afraid of losing control that she wouldn't allow herself to have an orgasm to having faith in herself and others was so compelling, I didn't miss the lack of an hero in the traditional sense of the word.
Go forth and buy. You won't be disappointed.
