Review: Pay for Play ( #1) by Victoria Ashley & Hilary Storm

Monday, September 5
Pay for Play by Victoria Ashley and Hilary Storm
My rating: – That’s all the info you need to get off in the privacy of your own home, car or hell… even in a public fucking library.

Whatever gets you wet.

I never expected a million-dollar business to come out of touching myself on camera, but when you add in nine of your best guys, the women become hungry and the money begins flowing faster than you can spend it.

You want to see me take my shirt off, I’ll strip it off nice and slow, making you sweat in anticipation.

You want to see me touch my dick, I’ll stroke every hard inch of it, getting you off before you can even feel it creeping up on you.

Your money.

Your Alpha.

Your demand.

Now I just hope playing for her on camera will pay off enough for me to claim her outside of the computer screen.


As a story this is a borderline 2 stars for me. As smut, it's probably a 4-5!

What I loved:

- The raunch was strong in this one. If you just skipped to every happy little smut section of this book, it would be a damned good read. That's what I would do if I read it again.
- I loved the premise - online peep shows for women. Is that a thing? I mean, if it costs $500 for 15 minutes like it does in this book, it'll be a hellllls no from me, but it's an awesome idea.
- Lynx. I really love a hero that sounds legitimately arrogant, condescending, confident, and hot. This guy ticked all the boxes.
- I love the thought of this many hot guys living in one house. Yum.

What I didn’t love:

- Character development. In my opinion, there was none. I felt like I was being told how to feel about the heroine - I read that she didn't take any shit, that she was no pushover, etc, but she demonstrated that she was the epitome of a doormat countless times.
- I'm not a fan of hot & cold heroines - the ones that are all in for the sex, then run away and feel guilty and say it's not happening again, rinse, repeat, rinse, repeat. We all know it's happening again. The book depends on it.
- The moral issue the couple struggle with is that he's her boss. It doesn't stop them from doing the do ever - not on the first day, not ever after that - so I'm frustrated that the author even made this a plot obstacle.
- The story was shallow. Jealousy, misunderstandings, trust issues, the heroine blowing hot and cold (did I just make a joke?) and a whole steaming pile of insta-lust and golden vagina syndrome that I didn't understand.


Read it for the dirty hotness you'll enjoy it. Read it for the romance story and I'll hope you have a better time of it than I did!
