“Adrian simply does billionaires better.”
~ Under the Covers

Lara Adrian is one of my favorite authors so when I learned that she was going to be writing Contemporary and more specifically, Erotic Romance, I knew I had to see what this new series is about. FOR 100 DAYS follows your typical billionaire trope, but I thought the way Adrian set up the story was interesting. The heroine Avery is having a string of bad luck. Not only has she lost her spot in a gallery, but she also doesn’t have a place to stay in New York anymore.

But then one of the bar’s loyal patrons where she works at informs her that she needs a house sitter and she wants Avery to be the one to do it. For Avery, it’s a gift from the heavens so she takes the job, not expecting much but the five grand the woman hiring her is willing to pay.

But on the first night, Avery bumps into Nick Baine, a gorgeous and intense man who lures her in with his eyes. They don’t really talk all that much before they are getting hot and heavy, and this is the part that I was a little disappointed with. Adrian spends a lot of time in the beginning building the backstory for Avery that I thought she would take her time with building the romance as well. Avery seems quite careful with the rest of her life before she becomes reckless and jumps into bed with Nick. I was hoping for a big more burn between the two before jumping straight into the sex.

I really liked Nick. He’s dark and mysterious. And very, very intense. For me, I think Avery is the one that carries this book. Adrian spends a lot of time making readers sympathetic to her character so I definitely felt closer to her than the hero. Especially as she intentionally keeps Nick in the dark.

There are twists that I want to say that I expect from a Lara Adrian book and I say that because with any Adrian book you read, you know there’s going to be a complex storyline. Adrian simply does billionaires better.

I also have to take a moment and say how much I enjoyed the actual writing of this book. From the very first page, you can tell that you’re reading an extremely polished book. I normally hate first person narrative, especially one done in present tense, but Adrian makes me enjoy it. I loved being in Avery’s head and I will definitely be reading the next book in the series.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

Hmm….always disappointed when a primary character is not fully developed but I think I’ll take a chance! Thanks!

I did think both are well developed, especially Avery. But Nick just falls under your typical billionaire. Something I’ve seen a lot of already.
