Yes, I said it in the title. If you like Fifty Shades and the Alpha Male dominant status that seems to be sweeping us girlies off our feet the world over, then this is a great 2 hour afternoon read. I would give it 5, but it left me wanting more as I thought the end was rushed, but it is what it is. Short stories always do that to me so it's probably personal preference. I think this would have worked very well as a full novel with a bigger plot. However, for a short read it was very good.

This is a very good erotic romance. Some reviewers have likened this work to 'Fifty Shades' but I cannot agree. For one thing, *this* writing is much more mature and certainly more fluid. Incidentally, I read and reviewed the short story 'His Obsession, Her Submission' a few days ago to which this short has a very similar premise. However, Kate Grey's story is so much warmer and I found I completely bought into both hero and heroine and their individual reasons for holding back in the past. I thought it rather interesting that both of them appeared to understand the other more than each actually realised.

I agree with some other reviewers that the ending felt rushed, particularly as I was totally immersed in the story and the author had done so well to get her characters to the point at which it ended. I think that the hero, Keith, is a good prototype for the dominant or alpha male who can occasionally be fallible but above all also has a heart.

For me, this is a 4.5* to 5* read and I've veered towards the higher rating as it is an absorbing read that held my interest from start to finish. This has brought the author onto my radar and I will be looking out for more of her work.

Great story, I could really identify with the characters, who were believable. The story was romantic and not too extreme, sensual instead of graphic. I would agree with the other reviewers in that it was a little short at the end, but this didnt distract from the story, it just illustrated how involving the world is and how I wanted to hear more about them!

My review

This is the first in the erotic romance Desire trilogy by Kate Grey. The Desire Trilogy consists of three short stories consisting of By His Desire, His One Desire and Only Desire each story features different characters.

I got the first in this trilogy as a freebie e-book from Amazon.

It tells the story of Keith Logan and Sarah Harper who both secretly had a crush on each other at High School and we meet them 10 years on when Keith realises he wants her even if it's just for one week.

I enjoyed this short 20,000 word story and felt that the story was well written. I loved the relationship between Keith and Sarah and whilst it might be a little predictable it was an enjoyable way to spend an odd hour or two reading it.

Please note it's not overly erotic so don't let that put you off reading it.

I gave this an 8/10.

The reviews I read about this book are a little misleading. They focus on the improbability of the arrangement and ignore the fact that although the heroine is painfully shy she is completely in control at all times. I will agree that the arrangement is a little creepy but the arrangement is an illusion. It is a mask both the characters hide behind. The heroine is at no point in the story a victim and she agrees to the arrangement not because of financial need or desperation but because of a fierce attraction that she has never been able to admit. And our hero, at a complete loss in trying to figure out how to break through her shyness to see if she is attracted to him, decides on a pretty desperate course of action. This was a very satisfying brief read. I would have liked to see the relationship between the characters continue to develop beyond the arrangement but I enjoyed the book and would recommend it.

This is one of the better billionaire stories that have been circulating since the Fifty Shades of Grey phenomenon. It's about unrequited young love and that always makes a good read. The puppy moment was the cutest, but you will have to read it to find out.

Another high recommendation.

Woah! The sex in this book is seriously hot, Keith is a proper panty dropping dominant.. Swoon! But really?? What was the point of this? I'm glad it was free because its so short I thought I had downloaded the sample, turns out that's all there is! If the author had written a full length book, this would of been big but unfortunately this leaves you annoyed!

Very short but a nice introduction to the lead characters, typical gazzilionaire with no interest in anything romantic, untill he buys a painting of the girl he liked at school. Cue an indecent proposal involving a week at his beck and call and a rather cute puppy! Doubt il buy the other million parts but, it was nice to kill half an hour!
