Summary

No one knows how new members are selected to the board of Hale Banking and Holding. But there are rumors of a sordid rite of initiation.

Whispers how one woman and nine men disappear into a boardroom.

This time, that woman will be me.

The Hale family owns everything - the eighth largest bank in the world, everyone in our town, even the mortgage on my parents’ mansion. And now Royce Hale wants to own me.

He is charming. Seductive. Ruthless. But above all, he’s the prince of lies. My body may tighten with white-hot desire under his penetrating gaze, but I refuse to enjoy it.

I’ll make a deal with the devil to save my family and sell myself to the Hales. But Royce will never own my heart.

My first Nikki Sloan

I think I started out with a good one for my first Nikki Sloan book. Savannah Peachwood is an awesome narrator and had me captivated throughout the entire book. Downside is that there is a cliffhanger and I hope it is not a long wait until the next book comes out. I don't usually go into a series without being able to go straight into the next if it is a good book, which this was so there's that slight disappointment that I have to wait. But other than that this had everything I like in a romance book. I will be looking for more of her books.

Sexy and Thoughtul. Get over the cliffhanger.

Oh. My. God!! I'm not sure why I waited to read/listen to this but it was so decadent.

The Initiation by Nikki Sloane is book one of the Filthy Rich Americans. This is a series that has to be read in order.

At first I was wondering how in the heck Marist was going to get swept up in this filthy rich world. But I was completely sucked in from the first moments. Royce seems to be the son trying to please everyone but stay true to himself.

This book is so sensual and hot. I'd expect nothing less from Nikki Sloane. She sets a scene and makes the reader feel as if they are immersed in that scene.

Saavannah Peachwood is the narrator and she embodies all of the characters brilliantly. Her voice is smooth like nectar.

I've seen reviews negative about the cliffhanger. Get over it. The cliffhanger is necessary for the flow of the series.

Nikki Sloane has once again written a sexy and thoughtful book. What would you do if you needed to help save your family?? How far would you go??

if your over 16 dont bother

unsure what the actual story was if there was supposed to be one? this was one of the most unrealistic books i have ever tried to complete. i could not i last for a bit of book 2 just in case i was missing something but no nothing. if you are over 16 dont bother there are much better books.

Dark, Sexy and Mysterious - an addicting audiobook!

This audiobook CONSUMED me, I have been wanting to dive into this trilogy since it released and am so happy I did the audio! Savannah‘s voice made for the perfect for Marist Northcott, fierce yet vulnerable, she nailed the power that was required of her to be part of the insane and decadent world of wealthiest men in the country.⁣

“I was the queen, and their desire made them my subjects.”⁣

This book is dark, sexy, sinful and mysterious, a twisted tale of the wealthy elite and the scandalous traditions they force upon those who they deem worthy. This book definitely took me out of my comfort zone, several scenes had me clutching my pearls and blushing. I love a hot romance book and this story takes it up a notch! There’s this anticipation that builds of what actually happens during initiation, my mind creating and imagining a lot of crazy situations and the story did not disappoint. I am utterly addicted to this world now and am patiently waiting for the next two books to be released on audio! ⁣

“Royce was Hades, the king of the underworld. He’d come to carry me down into his dark world, make me his unwilling bride and his queen.”⁣

Marist is the Northcott sister that everyone ignores, while beautiful in her own right, her quirky and non conventional style has left her out of the limelight. Yet when family secrets are revealed, she is the only one who can save their name and status, even if the cost is her freedom. I loved her resilience, she commanded the men around her even if she had no true power over her fate. Thrust into an arranged relationship with Royce Hale, an arrogant man with a chip on his shoulder, she fights hard to remain true to herself. Royce is a man who takes what he wants, yet in private he is warmhearted and his true feelings for Marist had me fighting for their love. The passion and heat created by their love/hate relationship is so dang sexy and leads to some intense sex scenes, oh boy is Royce an unforgettable man! Book one ends with a doozy of a cliffhanger, so consider me addicted!

addicted stoey

Savannah Peachwood did a good job as the narrator of this book. I can feel the emotions of all characters going through. I couldn't wait for the next series.
