Y is for Yielding #atozchallenge #ABCofRomance @AprilA2Z


Yielding for Him

Donovan (Van) is a billionaire who has everything and he is finally serious about a woman.

Lisa is his girlfriend but wants eventually to get married. She feels that Van is the one and she will do whatever kinky thing he suggests because she is so in love with him.

Where do I begin?
Point #1 –  As a fundraiser coordinator, Lisa is known for being able to get billionaires to part with their money for charity. Van admits to himself that he does not agree with all the causes. I am not sure if that is because he is stingy or if Lisa does not really vet the charities that she works to help. Either way, not a good start for character development.

Point #2 – Lisa seemed like she was only with Van for what she could get.

She learned exactly which buttons to push to get what she wanted from him.”

Translation: She knew how to get him to agree to buy stuff by performing various kinky sex acts. He would agree to almost anything while in the throes of passion. In her latest “transaction”, it seems that if he helps monetarily with the latest fundraiser, she agrees to whatever sex act/fantasy he wants her to do

Point #3 – Van says that having a threesome would be hot and give her so much pleasure. Plus he threw in some screwed up logic about how acting out the fantasy would make their relationship stronger. To Lisa’s credit, she did hesitate a brief moment and ask some thoughtful questions, like, why wouldn’t he be jealous?

His response, “This is supposed to be fun. Hot. It not supposed to be something you analyse (sic) to death.”

 I was still scratching my head. I did not imagine that the word “yielding” mentioned in the title would mean three people in the party. I was thinking possibly light bondage, maybe. However, I am not into the group sex scene. Two people getting it on is enough for me. When I  read out the synopsis blurbs on Amazon, I choose books that match what I like to read about.

From 38% of the book to the end is a long threesome sex scene. I did not read because as you probably inferred from my comments above, threesomes are not my thing.

Should you buy? If you like threesomes, you might find this book hot. Take away the sex, and the characters were average, almost forgettable. Van was a billionaire without much depth. Lisa seemed to me to be only concerned about her personal gain and what she needed to do to get it.

  1. YIKES! In the words of Kanye West, “I ain’t saying you’re a gold digger”. (lol) Dang it, when reading new to me authors, I count on good blurbs to get an idea of the story, and it sounds like you were bamboozled. (lol) Even worse, I totally agree with you on the iffy character development, making it a total deal breaker. You give a really good review so we know what to expect and totally love it! Hugs….
