Review: Nailed by Opal Carew

He’s about to take control of her body…and her dream.

When River set up a fundraiser to kick start her nail polish business, she never expected someone to pay five thousand dollars just to have dinner with her. But when she meets her mysterious benefactor, he turns out to be billionaire Kane Winters—the one man from her past who she never wanted to see again.

Kane is determined to right the wrong that happened to River in college—because of him. She’s been an obsession he can’t escape…and Kane wants River more than he’s ever wanted anything. So he offers her a deal she can’t refuse: marry him and her business will be success. But River’s knight in shining armor isn’t looking for a platonic business deal. He wants their marriage to be real…in every way.

Nailed is a romance for second chances at love. River sets up a fundraiser program to jumpstart her new nail polish business. She had a supporter pay a whopping five thousand just for a dinner with her-among other items. When she meets with this person, it turns out to be the man that broke her heart back in college.

Kane is now a self-made billionaire and he is determined to give River what he thinks will make up for a bad choice he made back in college. He’s been obsessed with her ever since, but she wants nothing to do with him. He ends up offering her a deal with her company that she can not refuse-marry him and she will want for nothing and she will see her company succeed. Kane isn’t looking for a marriage of convenience. He wants River to be his wife in every sense of the word.

River has always been that quirky girl who beat to her own drummer. Kane was the proverbial rich frat boy. I didn’t like how he manipulated her in college. When the crap hit the fan, he didn’t stand up to his friends and lost River. She ended up dropping out of college. Kane becomes obsessed with her-but never appeared to really try and find her. When his best friend, Will, finds the fundraiser, it sets a plan in motion to win her back. He still feels really guilty-and I get that-but to give her that contract was over the top. I didn’t feel this was very realistic. River felt railroaded into doing it. That being said I did enjoy how their romance between them was moving along and loved how they were falling for each other. I wasn’t really expecting the left turn the author made by adding Will in the mix. I think it would have been easier to accept if Will had been integrated much earlier. It seemed to be almost an afterthought. Now I really love me some menage storylines and the scene with the three of them was scorch the sheets hot, it was just a little to late in the story for me to really embrace.

Opal Carew is always coming up with something new and enjoyable. You can count on her to give you sexy and fun reads. This fit the bill!
