The rules:

No dating.
No sex outside of the game.
No disclosing the terms of the contract.

Rules were made to be broken, right?

Eight weeks ago I signed a contract. One that seemed like a good idea at the time. A handsome bachelor, luxury accommodations, and a chance to win a prize my family desperately needed. There were some rules though. Lots of them actually. Follow the script, no dating, sex, or disclosing the terms of the deal. After my self-imposed moratorium on men the last year, it wouldn’t be hard to live up to my end of the bargain…so I thought. Until I realized the deal I’d made was with the devil…and I was in love with his dirty-talking brother.

My review:

Throb is the newest work from author Vi Keeland, an author I adore, and introduces quite an interesting storyline that had me hooked form the very beginning.

Kate has just entered the world of reality TV…well let’s use the term “reality” a bit loosely here and say it’s more of a slightly scripted show. She had every intention of enduring the eight weeks she was contacted for and was hoping to walk away with the grand prize. A great deal of money that would help not only her, but her struggling family, get out of debt her late gambler father had left behind for them to deal with. Eight weeks was all it would take. Not a hard sacrifice, really. Except the contract she signed was very specific in that she wouldn’t be allowed to date, and of course as luck would have it, fate chooses NOW to drop Cooper into her life. Cooper, the brother of the show’s director and the one person who could ruin her chances at a stress free financial future.

Kate may give ignoring Cooper’s advances a good try, but in the end he proves too tempting to ignore and they begin a steamy fling. Hopefully she and Cooper will be able to keep this relationship on the down low because she’s pretty certain the director and Cooper don’t have the best brotherly relationship and this would surely be the end of her stint on reality tv if it got out.
I really really really enjoyed the idea behind this book. I thought it was fresh and different and I loved the whole idea of the reality TV show. Kate was a really interesting gal and had so many great facets to her personality. She was caring and loyal, kicked ass in card games, and is so damn determined to turn her poor hand in life around. Cooper was equally enjoyable and had me swooning more than a few times. He goes after what he wants in life but always appreciates the little things. He has plenty of money and power but doesn’t act like a pompous ass and I loved that about him. Together they are a fabulous couple. Their chemistry is off the charts and the little relationship quirks they develop during this story was so adorable! I also want to give a mention to Kate’s roommate and best friend. She was a freaking trip and had me laughing my are off more than once! I am hoping she gets her own book because I would love to read more of her.

Overall, this was an enjoyable read with plenty of heat and a great spin on romance. I look forward to reading more in this series and thank you, Vi, for yet another read I loved!
