When Lisa first met billionaire art dealer Mark, she thought she’d found the man of her dreams. Handsome, charming and successful, Mark seemed to offer her the love and security she craved. Too late, she discovered his love is obsessive and controlling, and the luxurious lifestyle he's given her has become a gilded cage.

Already desperate to escape, Lisa's need to leave becomes more urgent than ever when Mark decides to spice up their sex life, with Lisa offered up to his friends as a living sex toy. When she's thrown together with acclaimed architect Grayson Fielding, they're drawn to each other. But Lisa keeps Grayson at a distance, allowing physical intimacy but determined to resist developing feelings for him, afraid that if she lets Grayson get too close, she won't be able to walk away.

However, seeing a way to turn the situation to her advantage, Lisa offers Grayson a deal that will give them both what they want. If he accepts her startling proposal, Lisa could finally be free. But does he want her badly enough to agree to her terms? With her life rapidly spiralling out of control, it's a chance she has to take.

And you’ve brought dessert, she murmured, glancing at Lisa.

Lisa Matthews lives with her boyfriend Mark, he is very controlling. Suffering from his verbal abuse and sometimes physical she has lost a lot of weight to try and please him. One night Mark tells her that they are going to a friends for dinner and makes her promise that she will go along with whatever happens. And WOW, I didn’t see that coming, I really wanted to strangle Mark for the situation he put her in however Grayson was so great with her.
Once Grayson realizes that Lisa was not comfortable with the situation he pulled back and talked to her and they played chess.  Lisa feels a connection to him and feels safe.

Lisa has been saving money and planning on running away, her opportunity comes when Mark goes away on a business trip. She needs more money and she comes up with a plan to get more from Grayson. Will he give her the money she needs?

I loved this book! However the ending was definitely not what I expected.  I feel like there was some things left unfinished, however I see that there is a sequel coming in 2016.  Thank you Cleary James gor a great read. I look forward to the sequal.
