So, Katie Douglas got busy again under her dark nom de plume, Aria Adams. She’s given us fire, the sea, and now we’re about to get Bred.
Khloe is on a mission. She has to go fix what her stepfather has screwed up and rescue her sister. It turns out that her stepfather owes some very bad people a lot of money. So, instead of, you know, trying to come up with a reasonable way to get it so he could pay those people off, he decided to sell off 14 year old Latifah for her organs. If he signs a contract with Caden for Latifah’s kidney, then Caden will pay off the asshole’s creditors. But, Khloe has other plans. She pushes her way into the building so she can rescue her sister. Not only that, but she also works on beating up the guard. I thought it was pretty damn funny.
Caden has other plans too. He wants to have an heir. While he may be rich and powerful, that’s not something he can do himself. He needs to have someone with a working uterus help him with that. He’s thought about using surrogates, but he hasn’t seen one he liked. When he sees Khloe and her spirit, he knows that she’s the right one for him. He doesn’t want to have a relationship with her, he just wants to breed her. And, of course, for her to obey him and to punish her when she breaks the rules.
This is a short and filthy read. When Katie puts her Aria hat on, she writes some doozies, and this definitely is one. I love Khloe for a lot of reasons. She has a lot of fight in her. She’s not willing to do down easy. She is strong. She’s also mouthy, stubborn, and doesn’t necessarily know when to shut up or stop. Those can be good things, but they can also be bad things. Caden has his own code that he sticks to and has his own reasons for doing the things he does and the way in which he does them. He’s not a nice guy and many of the things he does or wants to do to Khloe aren’t all that nice either.
Because it is short, I don’t have a lot to say down here, because pretty much anything that I could say would be more of a spoiler than I like to post. The one thing I will say is that I really like Khloe’s way of handling long-term problems.
OK, that’s all I have to say about this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!
