“I just pray that our children ultimately learn the real joy and satisfaction you receive from having money can be very comforting, and comes when you can spend it not on yourself, but by making a real difference in someone else’s life.”

This contemporary erotic romance series is set in beautiful Richmond, Virginia. This is a work of fiction and any comparison to persons, living or dead, is completely unintentional.
WARNING: This novel contains strong sexual content and language. It is not intended for children under eighteen years of age. If you find erotica offensive, this may not be the best choice for purchase.
I have to admit I like the premise of this story told from 4 different perspectives, Lizzie, Jeremy, Jack and Victoria. We get to see their lives unfold from childhood to adulthood, from happiness to misery. Some of their decisions you will shake your head at but you will understand the reason as family pressures and expectations drive them. As such there are some likeable characters and some not so nice ones.
As I said, the premise is great but the delivery faltered. The story is told in multiple POVs which is okay but the timelines chopped and changed too, which made it jarring to read. I would've preferred a more sequential timeline just because there were 4 main characters telling the story. But when you get round that it becomes a more enjoyable read.
This is a purely adult read so be prepared for some steamy scenes and dirty talking. *winks* Overall, this is a decent read and I would read this author again.
