BOY TOY AUCTION by C.A. Harms
What was meant to be a fun evening to benefit charity, suddenly became so much more…
They were both volunteered into attending the Boy Toy Auction.
One as a contestant.
One as an attendee.
Emerson lost an internal battle the moment Nicholas stepped onto the stage.
As soon as he started moving his hips to the rhythm of the music, she was captivated. Suddenly, the timid girl became a warrior as she fought to have the highest bid.
There was no way she was leaving without him at her side.
From the moment Nic saw her, Emerson became his focal point.
The beautiful woman in the silver dress.
The one that held his stare.
He needed her to win.
He needed her.
He’d make sure this was the best money she’d ever spend.
Or the worst…depends on how you look at it.
Because sometimes, it doesn’t matter what you want, life has a way of throwing you a curve ball that you aren’t prepared for…

Review by Bubbles The Book Pimp
Uptight and in control… or rather controlled.. Emerson is the daughter of a wealthy and powerful hotel mogel..outward presentations and correct behaviour has been drilled into Emerson from a young age.
So when her best friend and wild child Gia decides they are going to a charity boy toy auction.. Emerson knows she needs to be on her best behaviour. That is until she sees boy toy number seven…homicide detective Nicholas Vaughn..she’s bidding and she’s going to win him.
As much as I could feel for Emerson and her controlled by asshole dad life…I wanted her to take a stronger control in taking back her life…for someone who was in control at work..there was little evidence of that in her personal. I did really enjoy the chemistry and banter between her and Nic… their scenes were sweet and spicy.
Nic’s character was and is a great example of an all round alpha male, caring and protective and demanding with a touch of arrogance and marshmellow that makes for a winning combination. I liked that he gave Emerson the time to decide and pick what she wanted..after laying his emotions bare to her…giving her the space for her to really make up her mind. It showed a vulnerable side to him which was enjoyable to see.
Hawt chemistry filled romance from this go to one click author. A shade darker with its subject matter but nothing to detailed or that requires trigger warnings. I’ve read and enjoyed a number of books by this author and this book was a welcome (albeit slight ) change in direction. The slightly darker theme gave an opportunity to delve in to different set of scenarios that the author explored well.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR — C.A. Harms is an avid romance and mystery reader. She’s always had a love for books, getting lost in writing and storytelling even as a young girl. She enjoys happy endings and HEA love stories.
She lives in Illinois and enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. She holds an addiction for Starbucks White Chocolate Mocha’s and KitKat when she should really be focusing on water and maybe a fruit or two to make herself feel less guilty, but that feeling quickly passes…thankfully.
She is easy going, fun, and although she may seem like one of the quiet ones at first, you just wait until she gets to know you better…that quietness changes, fast.
