The rules:

No dating.
No sex outside of the game.
No disclosing the terms of the contract.

Rules were made to be broken, right?

Eight weeks ago I signed a contract. One that seemed like a good idea at the time. A handsome bachelor, luxury accommodations, and a chance to win a prize my family desperately needed. There were some rules though. Lots of them actually. Follow the script, no dating, sex, or disclosing the terms of the deal. After my self-imposed moratorium on men the last year, it wouldn’t be hard to live up to my end of the bargain... so I thought. Until I realized the deal I’d made was with the devil... and I was in love with his dirty-talking brother.

I have been meaning to read a book by Vi Keeland for ages and I finally took the plunge and began with Throb. The blurb had me hooked and I was intrigued as to how Kate got herself into this situation… and whether they would all get through it all ok. It was an amusing and sizzling read, all around the set of a TV Reality show, a cross between the Bachelor and Survivor.  

Cooper was the first character I met, and I thought he was going to be one of those rich, high strung, demanding guys… running his own business and not treating women real well. But then he had to slum in and go play poker with friends of his fathers’. That there changed my opinion of him! He really is down to earth, despite the façade he has erected. It’s at this match he first meets Kate and realises that he may be looking for a woman to be more permanent in his life.

Kate was a fun girl to read about! She is a really sweet girl, who has a fantastic poker face! She wants to do right by her family, and that is why she is determined to win the show she signed up for. But once she meets Cooper, and her feelings develop, she is torn with what her heart wants and what she needs to do for her mother and brother. There is no denying the chemistry between Kate and Cooper and how he is relentless in pursuing her.

There were a few other characters introduced that make this story interesting. Cooper’s brother Miles is a big jerk, but brings a fair bit of spice to the story. I loved Flynn! He is such a nice guy and tried hard to win Kate! And then there is Sadie… she was quite the amusing character!

I really enjoyed the romance in Throb. Cooper knew what he wanted and was willing to do whatever he could to get Kate. Their connection strengthened along the way, and hurdles, like the show, always kept them wondering if it would all end. I quite enjoyed my first Vi Keeland read and will definitely keep her work in my sights in the future! 

“This is staking my claim. I’ll send you back to him tomorrow if that’s what you want. But you won’t be able to sit without thinking of me for a week. Every time your sexy ass touches down, you’ll be reminded of what it feels like with me buried deep inside you. Your bones will ache from the relentless pounding I plan to deliver.”
