Overview

"I think you would be right for a position with quite specific requirements that would be hard to fill otherwise."

After a vicious fight with her stepbrother and guardian, Natalie storms out of the family McMansion, never imagining that would be the last time she'd be allowed in the house. A string of truly rotten decisions follows, until she finds herself suspended from school, friendless, broke, and camping out at the convenience store where she works. Worst of all, her college applications are due!

Thanks to a helpful teacher and her own stupendous brilliance she manages to get into her top choice college. Unfortunately, dealing with the financial aid forms proves to be too much for her supersmarts and she is about to lose her spot because she cannot get the money together to pay the deposit.

Enter Gareth Boyd, an old family friend with an indecent proposal that will pay for everything-if she can meet his price.

This book is about a girl named Natalie who finds herself homeless at 18 after her stepbrother throws her out due to outrageous and inappropriate behavior. She finds herself living in the back of a mini-mart on a downward spiral. Due to the efforts of 3 people she is stopped from hitting rock bottom. One of those people happens to be one of her teachers who encourages her to apply to college. She finds herself accepted to Brown an Ivy League school. Needless to say she can't afford it and she has to pay soon. Enter Gareth who happens to be an old family friend that she happened to have a crush on. He convinces her to sign a contract that will find her interacting with a friend of hers and that gives Gareth complete control over her life and everything in it. In exchange for signing he will make sure she has the money for school. Natalie finds it hard to comply with the rules set in place and fights against them. Enter Jamie the friend that the contract is for. Natalie is essentially a sex toy for Jamie. After some events go down Daniel is introduced. Of the three men Daniel is the only one who keeps things platonic as he recognizes that is what she really needs. I found myself struggling to finish this book. For the first part of the book it was painful reading Natalie's emotions as they were up and down as well as all over the place. I wanted to stop reading after the first few chapters but continued on to see how it continued. The story line/plot left a lot to be desired as it was a little all over the place. It didn't really smooth out until almost towards the end and by then I was left with to many questions left unanswered. I received and Advanced Reading Copy from NetGalley in return for an honest review.

A fast paced steamy read that had me hooked from beginning to end. Natalie is a down on her luck 18 year old ready to head off to college but lacking the funds to do so until she receives an offer from an old family friend. The story is drama filled with plenty of suspense and the sex is steamy. The characters have plenty of depth and I couldn’t wait to find out what happened next. Great Read!

College Bound by Lilia Ford is an erotic novel. Natalie is having a rough time. She is just eighteen but still in high school. Her mother died when she was younger and her father quickly remarried. Unfortunately for Natalie, her father put most of his possessions in his new wife's name so when they both passed away everything went to her stepbrother and now guardian, Stephen. When Natalie started acting out with inappropriate sexual behavior he threatened boarding school or she would be cut off without a dime. Natalie decided to leave her home. She ended up working at a local mini-mart and living on a cat in the backroom. Gareth, who has been giving her sandwiches and a place to shower, offers Natalie a proposition in return for college tuition. Natalie agrees to Gareth outrageous proposition and she embarks on her new life. There is a lot of foul language in this book as well as bondage, gagging, and spanking. The first half of the book is very upsetting or discomforting to read but you keep reading because you want to find out what happens with Natalie. College Bound has very erotic sex scenes but you will find some of it disturbing yet erotic. I would give College Bound 3.5 stars out of 5. Happy Reading! I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
