Mason Pryce has it all. Twenty-nine years old with a massively successful business, loving family, expensive toys and close friends. There is nothing he wants for… Except for the next exclusive ‘auction.’
Due to his “unique” desires, Mason has never had any luck keeping a real girlfriend, but it doesn't really bother him since there are other, darker ways to deal. Deep pockets make buying anything possible… Or ANYONE.
Thanks to bad decisions and self-destructive behaviors, real love seems to be the one thing Mason will never have. Or will those things finally work in his favor?
One night of trying to do too much on his own sets a series of domino-fall actions into effect that will forever change Mason’s life.
She’s standing in the room wearing a purple leather open-cup bustier, matching blindfold and nothing else. We all make our way around her to examine the possible purchase. She’s quite tall, probably pushing six feet. Her beautiful, tanned body and raven black hair are such a far removal from my usual likes. Her skin is flawless save for a small scripted tattoo on her right shoulder: I vincet. Latin most likely. I’ll have to look it up.
Victoria chimes in, “Jade comes to us today from Barbados. She has willingly agreed to her current arrangement in exchange for monetary assistance for her family’s failing business. She’s an exquisitely beautiful, young woman as you can see, along with spectacular sea-green eyes.”
The bidding begins at one hundred thousand, and I could care less. I don’t even pay attention to the escalating price. Out of sheer instinct I just keep raising my bidding flag until everyone realizes that continuing is a futile maneuver.
“Going once, going twice… SOLD! For eight hundred and fifty thousand dollars to the yellow bidder.”
