Amy's 3 star ARC Review of Paying Daddy's Debt by Alexa Riley
When Ash Carpenter imagines a schoolgirl, the image doesn't match her. She wears long skirts that are sort of frumpy. Her bulky sweaters hide her shape, and her hair is always in a messy bun. Her tennis shoes are clunky and worn, and there are runs in her thick tights. Her dark-framed glasses hide some of her face...but not all of it. Because he's caught sight of those ice-blue eyes, and they've pierced him to his core.
She walks by his office every day, and finally he's had enough. Ash decides he's tired of waiting and it's time to collect what he's owed. She'll come with him, because there's no other choice. She'll pay her daddy's debt any way Ash sees fit.
Warning: Oh, honey, this is about to get filthy. If your delicate sensibilities can't handle the dirty, then step aside for those of us who can. It's quick, but it's just the right length, if you know what I mean. *slow wink, elbow nudge, goofy snort*
So I love this lady and her stories but this one just didn't get it for me. Scared and lonely because of her father and his life not letting anyone in Jasmin is waiting to get out. However Ash has another idea for her. Seeing her walk past him every day he knows he wants her. Jasmin was very shy and upon meeting Ash boom changes her ways. This was the issue for me. I didn't feel like the character should have switched gears so quickly leaving all her aspirations behind. I also thought by the cover and title that this was more of a dark read. Not a problem that it wasn't but I felt it was somewhat misleading. The characters aren't that developed and the story isn't a deep read.
Click it up and see what you think. It's a quick read. Alexa is a great author -- this just wasn't my cup of tea. Thank you for the ARC! Review to post to Ramblings From Beneath The Sheets.
