I rated this one a 3/5 but Katee Robert is so popular that everyone who is a fan and craves her books gives her a 5/5! (First person present tense, dual POV)
Once upon a time, I met a man who stole my heart. In my desperation to reunite with him, I have nowhere to turn but the Sea Witch. Ursa is as beautiful as she is dangerous, and the one person my father warned me never to let close. But she’s all crimson lips and pretty lies, and I’m convinced despite my fear.It’s a simple enough plan, if not for the faint of heart. An auction to sell the one thing I possess of any value—myself. The money will free Alaric and then we can finally be together.Except nothing is simple at all.Ursa is playing at games I can only begin to comprehend. And Alaric? The man I thought I loved might be just as much a villain as the woman I can’t help but be drawn to.When playing in the darkest depths of love and lust, it will be everything I can do not to drown.
I wasn’t expecting a three way situation or sub/dom since I never read the blurbs beforehand. But looking back the blurb didn’t highlight those specifically either the story was steamy, quick, easy, with flowing writing. Zurielle was willing to give everything up for the man she thought she loved. Ursa, the sea witch, has plans of her own. If you’re into calling her “Mistress” with sex rules, then this is a great choice for you.
Half consensual situations are confusing for me, when they regret it or change their mind… as spicy as it is, I don’t think it’s the book for me.
