Sting Factor (kink): 4.5 out of 5
Was it normal for a fashion designer to ask a new model to strip so he could inspect her from head to toe to get a feel for her shape, size and sensitivities?
Bumping into her boss, causing her portfolio to fall and the drawings she’d secretly worked on during her breaks to scatter was accidental. But oh, what a welcome accident. Danea’s career dreams are realized when the man she’s drooled over and fantasized about for two years while working in administration wants to see all her sketches.
Not only does Kalem Ostarizo, the world’s top fashion designer, hire her for his design team, but wants her to model for House of Ostarizo. Danea happily signs a one-year contract for each position but is shocked when she finds out the obedience clause she agreed to involves more than just obeying the rules.
Inviting the devil by Gabriella Bradley was a fantastic story. The tone of the story was a bit confusing and very ominous. One would keep expecting the worst to happen, but it did keep you on your toes until the very end. The author did a great job with the sex scenes: They were sizzling hot.
Kalem was a very eccentric person but it was hard to tell if it was the fashion industry, the money, or his history that made him that way. The one criticism I had with him was believing anything that came out of his mouth. He came across like he was hiding something.
Danea came across as a person who knew what she wanted from life. The author tried to portray Danea as naïve but that did not work out very well in my opinion. She went from aspiring to be a fashion designer to a model. What is very dangerous is Danea signs the one year contract without truly reading it. Danea really does not put up much of a fight when they begin the makeover, including the piercings. The piercings come across as unbelievable in the regular modeling industry. It makes one wonder what they plan on having you model?
Overall, this was an enjoyable story despite the authors very ominous tone in the book. The sizzling sex scenes and the story line keeps you on your toes.
