All three books from the Poker Loser Trilogy in one bundle!
Forced Bet - Allison, a snobby rich girl who has been raised to be a miniature version of her snobby rich parents, has a secret: she wishes for all the experiences that her lifestyle has kept her from having. Especially the sexual ones. When she drunkenly admits this secret to roguish, lower class, scholarship student Todd, several years older than her and much more experienced with life and sex, she finds herself caught up in a whirlwind of fantasy.
It all starts with a game of strip poker, and when competitive Allison finds herself with the losing hand she recklessly bets her own body for the night... and Todd uses the opportunity to videotape their activities and blackmail her with it, just the way she had told him she wished someone would. No longer constrained by her need to be the good daughter, "forced" into debauchery, every Friday night Todd takes her on a different "date," fulfilling one of the fantasies that she never dared admit to before.
As Allison learns about passion and sex, she finds herself starting to learn about falling in love too. But does Todd love her back? Or is he just enjoying the game?
Back in the Game - At the end of Forced Bet Allison realized that she was in love with the man who took her virginity and filled her request to be blackmailed into fulfilling her myriad of sexual fantasies and dark desires, only to have him tell her that he was going to Turkey to work. Unaware that Todd purposefully didn't tell her that he shared her feelings, because he didn't want her to wait for him if he was unable to make himself into the man he felt she deserved and that her parents would approve of, Allison is now struggling with hidden heartbreak and the knowledge that she needs to move on from the man who stole her heart. Her new boyfriend's name is Roger and he's everything the old Allison would have wanted - sweet, generous, caring, of equal social standing, and there's even a hint of something authoritative and darkly sexy in the back of his eyes.
As she struggles with her own emotions, her parent's expectations and her social statuses' strictures, Allison is taking steps for her own independence and life through her job and her new apartment with her friend Diana. Unwilling to continue living life under her parents terms, she tries to make herself into the kind of woman she thinks a man like Todd would want even as she does her best to remove him from her heart.
Winning Hand - Allison and Todd are finally together - but at what cost? Her parents are not only refuse to have anything to do with her, they're still trying to interfere in her life by trying to convince her ex-boyfriend to get back together with her. It's not a situation that Allison wants to deal with, although at least Roger knows well enough that he and Allison don't belong together. Still, now that she's moved in with Todd, can she ever reconcile with her parents? And how will the estrangement effect one big question that Todd wants to ask her?
This series has a HEA, but it's also a bit of a dark romance. There's blackmail, spanking, BDSM, dubious consent, voyeurism/exhibitionism, some group sex in the first book, and not a hole left untouched. Enjoy.
