Summary

Sex sells, and Richard is about to find out exactly how much his submission is worth.

Richard is desperate for money. With his father needing long-term care and graduate school looming, he needs a lump sum of cash, and fast. Selling himself via the Delphic Agency seems the quickest way to get ahead of his problems, but to earn the kind of money he needs Richard has to offer more than he bargained for.

Accepting a two-week contract as resident submissive to a man who switches between casual friend and relentless dominant at the drop of a paddle leaves Richard sure of only two things: one, he wants to please this man more than anything, and two, never mind the money, he never wants this to end.

But you don’t buy people from the Delphic Agency, only time. And as Richard falls repeatedly to his knees, time is running out, and Richard is no closer to knowing if the man who has awakened his inner submissive will want more of him or send him on his way.

Paid to Kneel is the first book in the Delphic Agency Series and contains dom/sub elements, plenty of steamy kink exploration, and a surprising amount of love.

"I wait at your knees, not because I'm expected to

"but it is where I feel safest". ~Unknown~ ****This review contains Spoliers***** I enjoyed this book. I was nervous at first with spanking since I have major triggers to anything containing any type of hitting. But there was only one scene that went into details then the others were just mentioned. It was very well done. I also enjoyed learning more about edging, that's a new (to me) fun kink that I would love to try. The relationship between Ash & Ricky was good in a sense but I would have liked to know more about Ash's point of view. Ash always seemed distant and then one day it was like they finally connected. It's like something was missing. I know it's a contract and paid situation but still. Also, I absolutely hated the ending!! It was rushed and actually missing information. Ricky heads to the hospital to see his dad who has dementia then finds out that Ash has paid for better care for his Dad. Sweet? Yes. But then it gets weird. Ricky is outside the hospital looking up at the sky one minute then it jumps to him driving to Ash's house. He goes up to Ash's room, strips, ends up on his lap, tells him he loves him and then it jumps to years later. Like wtaf??? Where is all the information in between?? Are we just expected to fill in the blanks of the book. Yikes, I have an imagination but I read so I don't have to think and can just escape the world. The ending seriously made me ragey. Lol no 5 star for you!!

Pure delight...review for the audiobook version🎧

What a wonderful story! Lots of heat, BDSM, all the feels and little to no angst, just the way I like it. The narration by Gavin McAllister was an absolute delight! I hope he will be the narrator for the rest of the series... I can not wait! Note: This review is for the audiobook only! After listening to and loving the first book, I read the next two books in the series. Lordy, the punctuation and grammatical errors just about drove me nuts, even though I thoroughly enjoyed the stories.

Fabulous Story & Narration🎧 A Steamy🔥Delight!

I enjoyed this book immensely, the story grabbed my attention right from the start and captivated it straight to the end. This is my first book written by Romilly King and it certainly will not be my last. I enjoyed his writing style and his way with words. He created an original story with interesting storylines. His characters are complex and well develped, they are likable, easy to relate to and connect with. I adored the two leads, Richard and Ash, I thought they were great together and for each other. Richard in need of money resorts to the oldest profession, after some research he found the best way to go about it. I could not help but admire him for why he went this route and his dedication to stick with it. Unbeknownst to him he gets more than he bargained for. I was not sure how I felt about Ash at first impression but he grew on me rather quickly. I loved how everything plays out in this book, how their relationship started to become more than just a business arrangement. Speaking of business, I also loved the premise of the Delphic Agency and the Emptor/Venditor arrangement, that you can not buy people, just time. The story is cleverly plotted, there is plenty of drama, some heartfelt and emotional moments, some hot kink and great scening. Romilly King thank you for this fabulous story and for casting the perfect narrator to bring you story to life. 🎧📚🎧 And for the fabulous narration, Gavin McAllister is a talented narrator and versatile voice artist. He brings these characters to life, giving each their own distinct voice which makes it easy to follow along. He does an awesome job portraying the characters, he grasps their personas and plays each role with perfection, sounding just as I picture them to sound. He sets the perfect tone for the story, captures the character’s emotions and projects them into his performance. He is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for the fabulous listen🎧

So hot! Loved it.

Oh, my!! I LOVED this audio! So much! I finished it with the biggest smile on my face and I wanted to re-listen to it immediately. This audio is so good, the narrator voices is amazing and how he gave life to the characters is so awesome! I loved listening to Richard and Ash. This book is one of my favorite from the series, but when I read it, I only gave it 4,5 star. But now! Now I give it 5 amazing stars! All the stars, because it was so, so good! Better than I thought it would be. And man, the narrator is really have a voice that gives you eargasms! I had to get back to some scenes and listen to them again and again, because they were that good. I hardly rewind while I'm in the book, but now I had to! And I really have a need in me to just re-listen to this right now. Richard and Ash is so good together♥ My favorite is still that Richard called Ash by his name and not Master or Sir. Ash is the most adorable dom and I loved how he handled Richard in the scenes. So hot and sensual. And with the narrator's voice - phew, I needed one or two cold showers while listening to this. Amazing audio, and can't wait to the others.

Wow!!

So I love audiobooks and quite often give them high ratings bc of the joy they bring me but this audiobook made me question my rating. Like this was one of the best I’ve ever listened to that it surpassed anything I usually give 5 stars. I’m like damn I’ve been easy with my ratings bc this deserves the highest rating ever and the 5 stars I usually use are so far beneath what this one deserves. Yup!! If a genre you like includes bdsm, this is a must buy. I can’t believe I’ve never heard of them before, so far there are 5 books in the series and I hope they all get the chance to be turned into audiobooks. Just damn, I’m blown away.

Surprisingly Good

I wasn’t sure what to expect of this story since I’m not a big fan of bdsm. I’m glad to say I was pleasantly surprised. Not only does the writer nail the bdsm aspects but also the emotions.
