Compromise Me #3

Entangled Publishing

In Compromised in Paradise (Compromise Me #3) by Samanthe Beck, work consumes Arden St. Sebastian's life, but being in Maui gives her the opportunity to de-stress, especially when she meets Nick Bancroft. However, when she tricks Nick because orgasms don't come easy for her, no matter how good the guy may be, he offers her a deal -- spend six days with him and he'll give her all the orgasms she wants with her having no need to fake them. Yet, when the time comes for the pair to go their separate ways, will Nick be able to win Arden's heart, or will Arden run scared because she's been keeping her identity a secret?

This is the first book I've read by Ms. Beck, and it's a story that I absolutely loved due to the enchanting main characters that feel the need to keep their identities a secret; wonderful dialogue that made this story an absolute page turner because Nick knows how to show Arden a good time both in and out of the bedroom; and the ending that had me completely charmed by the hero's realization of what he wants. The way this story started had me liking the heroine immediately, as she's stressed and knows she needs to find a way to relieve her tenseness. Then again, with an interfering father like hers, who could blame her? Does he not have anything better to do than control every aspect of his daughter's life, even if she doesn't have the best judgment in men?

As for the dialogue, it was riveting and kept me entertained from start to finish due to the main characters back stories and the obstacles these two face on their journey to happy ever after. Neither are looking for forever love because Arden has been hurt in the past and doesn't need to go through that again and the hero lost someone special to him that has left him unwilling to take a chance on love again. Will Arden be able to convince Nick that love is worth taking a risk? Moreover, the heroine is hard-working, tenacious and I liked how she was willing to give Nick a chance to prove he has what it takes to give her what he says he will. I also liked the decision the heroine made when it came to her parents, as she couldn't continue be in the middle of their rocky relationship. While the hero, he's confident, hard-working and I liked how determined he was to win the heroine over. He's fun, loves dirty talk and definitely delivers what the heroine needs and shows her that there's no need for her to fake orgasms.

Overall, Ms. Beck has penned a fun and scorching read in this book where the chemistry and romance between this couple was intense and explosive; the secondary characters in Arden's family, especially her dad, had me smiling because of his need to meddle in her life; and the ending left me completely satisfied because Nick isn't about to let Arden get away, not when he realizes how huge his feelings are for her. However, it was the epilogue that wrapped this story up wonderfully, because of the surprise Nick has for Arden after what she manages to get at Chelsea and her brother's special event. I would recommend Compromised by Paradise if you enjoy island romances, holiday romances, the opposites attract trope or books by authors Cathryn Fox, Rebecca Brooks, Lauren Blakely and Joya Ryan.

Stressed out hotel heiress Arden St. Sebastian is in Maui for one thing and one thing only. Work. But when the hottie at the bar buys her a drink to end all frilly umbrella-and-glow stick drinks, she can’t help but accept his unspoken invitation. When they get back to her villa, however, and the sexy moment of truth arrives, she can’t…quite…get there. Again.

ER resident Nick Bancroft can handle a night of fun, anonymous sex, but he draws the line at a fake orgasm. He makes his mystery woman a deal. He’ll take care of her little stress-induced orgasm problem if she’ll spend the next six days exploring the island with him, no questions asked.

A week of island relaxation on the arm of the sexiest man she’s ever met? Arden’s game. As long as she keeps her identity secret, she’s got nothing to lose…except her heart.
