Overview

Naked, bound and in chains, at the mercy of the man who purchased her-body and soul-for the next 30 days.
Carly Abrams, at a financial dead-end, has gathered her courage, exaggerated her experience and signed on as a submissive sex slave at an exclusive BDSM auction house.
Adam Wise is gorgeous, filthy rich, sexually dominant and used to getting exactly what he wants. He has a fully-equipped dungeon and water bondage chamber in his home, all of it waiting for the woman who will submit to his darkest sadistic fantasies. With no interest in the emotional complications of romance, bidding on a highly trained sex slave strikes him as the perfect solution.
From the moment they sign the contract, Adam subjects Carly to sexual torture and BDSM scenes that push every boundary-physical, mental and emotional-leaving her at once terrified and longing for more. Neither counts on the emotional impact and deep sense of connection such a relationship entails, even if Carly is just a sub for hire. Each day takes the pair deeper into a dark and sensual journey. In the struggle of wills and the tangling of hearts that ensues, both Adam and Carly must find the strength to face their secret fears and the courage to seize that most elusive and dangerous of dreams-love.

Manic Depot - Alex JouJou
4.5 Stars - The Auction has a very Pretty Woman flavor mixed in with more intense BDSM scenes... Ms. Thompson...does harsher BDSM sublimely and when it is infused (but not overwhelmed) with romance it creates such a wonderful balance it is quite a joy to read. �If you enjoy kink with your romance and can handle a little pain, this one is sure to please!

I greatly enjoyed this story. Great combination of romance and erotica. More BDSM scenes would have been nice but, since the main part of the story covers less thsn a week...

My Rating: 3½ stars The thought of being sold as a slave at a BDSM auction house is very arousing. Not knowing who’ll buy me. Not knowing what he’ll do to me once I sign the contract. *shudders with delight* Okay, in real life I would never have the courage to do such a thing, so it’s fun to explore the fantasy in fiction, like in Claire Thompson’s latest BDSM romance, THE AUCTION. Carly Abrams is thirty-two, single and broke. She finds a golden opportunity to make a lot of cash fast by becoming a sex slave at a BDSM auction house. She knows the only way to get hired is to lie about her lack of BDSM experience. Carly knows she’s a masochist who gets off on erotic pain, but a submissive? Who can say. She can at least fake it for a month, or so she thinks. Adam Wise is a rich, successful sadist dominant looking for kinky sex minus the emotional commitment. Women are only after his money, so why not just pay someone to be his slave? A trained sex slave from the trusted Erotica Auctions would be ideal. He’s thrilled to be Carly’s winning bidder, though the experience doesn’t turn out quite like he expected. I liked how Adam and Carly’s Master/slave relationship played out. I think they both learned important lessons, especially that you can’t buy true submission, and you can’t take emotion out of such an intense experience. I felt like with both Adam and Carly that I was missing important pieces of their back stories. I’m still in the dark about how Carly ended up in her poor financial situation and why Adam was so afraid of opening his heart to someone. I think the perfect opportunity presented itself for them to talk about it, but it just wasn’t taken. I have to say that I liked the secondary characters James and Amy as much as Adam and Carly! In their early sixties, James and Amy have been married forever and have been Master and slave for just as long. It was clear that they still adored each other after all those years and knew how to make a power exchange relationship work. Luckily for Adam, they were good friends willing to give advice and “tough love” when he needed it. Ms. Thompson always delivers hot and edgy BDSM scenes, in particular the S&M part. Whoa! I loved it all, even the water bondage, which to me is both terrifying and exciting. I’d recommend THE AUCTION to fans of erotic romance who prefer hardcore BDSM play.
