No one knows how new members are selected to the board of Hale Banking and Holding. But there are rumors of a sordid rite of initiation.

Whispers how one woman and nine men disappear into a boardroom.

This time, that woman will be me.

The Hale family owns everything—the eighth largest bank in the world, everyone in our town, even the mortgage on my parents' mansion. And now Royce Hale wants to own me.

He is charming. Seductive. Ruthless. But above all, he's the prince of lies. My body may tighten with white-hot desire under his penetrating gaze, but I refuse to enjoy it.

I'll make a deal with the devil to save my family and sell myself to the Hales. But Royce will never own my heart.

This book is so good, it's unpredictable and you never really know what is for sure. I can't wait for the next book .

I was hooked, finished this book in a few hours. The characters are twisted and well-rounded, and I loved every minute of this story except for the end. Very well done.

This was a wonderful start to this series. The plot is engaging and intriguing and the characters are layered and complex. Marist and Royce will quickly capture your interest. The storyline will keep you right on the razor's edge and have you filled with anticipation or dread (depending on the situation). Drama, secrets, raw emotion, steam and some big, mind blowing twists will put your own emotions through the wringer as you read as quickly and as often as you can. Try to prepare for the cliffhanger because O.M.G!!!! Part two can not be released soon enough for me!

OM Freaking GOD!!!! I can’t believe she did that!! Nikki how could you leave us just hanging like that??? This book? It was beyond what I was expecting and having been written by Nikki Sloane you know it’s gonna be something! But, this. The Initiation was… out of this world. I loved it. Every decedent, filthy sexy minute of it. Or, well most of it. Macalister Hale was a creepy, dirty old man whom I want to hurt, very, very badly. Thankfully he wasn’t the male lead here, that award fell to his oldest son Royce. Royce and Marist were the perfect pairing in this edgy, angsty, hot story. They both come from wealthy families, but whilst Royce’s is at the top of the pecking order, Marist’s family is hiding a secret, one she ends up baring the brunt of. Machinations, lies and betrayals abound in this book and just when you think they have reached the worst and the end is nigh, so you can relax your way to a happy ending! That happens! I can’t tell you what, that is but I will say I was on the edge of my seat for the last 10% of the story, praying for a different outcome from what seemed to be zooming down the barrel of a ‘novel’s’ shotgun at me. I’m stunned and shocked, utterly shocked, in fact. I don’t want this ending. I can’t take it. Royce seemed so, so… genuine when he was with Marist, but he warned her. He warned us all!!! I just wanna curl up and cry it out. So, that’s what I’m going to do, and pray the next book gets here soon and maybe, just maybe puts me out of my misery.
