ONE WEEK is all it will take...
A week in Las Vegas and she will feel better about herself. At least that is what Dacotah Miller is hoping will be the case.
Left at the altar, heartbroken and ashamed, Dacotah takes the opportunity offered by her girlfriends - the chance to get away. The opportunity to escape her mundane life in the middle of nowhere Wisconsin.
But what Dacotah doesn't know is that lurking in Las Vegas is the chance of a lifetime, a dream come true, in the form of Derek Hunter.
Derek, in town on business, can't seem to focus on his purpose once Dacotah walks into his field of vision. She beautiful and just what he needs to cure his desire for a good woman in his bed. Only she presents a challenge to him unlike anything he's ever experienced before.
Dacotah will be wrapped up in a whirlwind of unexpected events that will force her to make a decision, life changing choice. Does she get on the plane back to boring Wisconsin and wonder what might have been?
Or will she step on board a private jet that promises to take her on a journey she will never forget?

“Why do you call me Orion?” he asks, genuine curiosity in his voice and I can see that he’s trying to turn an extremely tense situation into something more personal.
“I won’t laugh,” he says, his voice is soft, but I can see a light in his eyes that tells me that might not be the case.
I decide that I have nothing to lose at this point and go for it. “When I first saw you, in the mall, you reminded me of a hunter. Focused and driven to find its prey. Which you’ve only further proven by your actions since then.” I give him a half smile.
“Okay, so where does Orion come from?”
“Orion, the star constellation is also known as The Hunter.”As I suspected, he starts to laugh, but there is a nervous energy ringing louder than his laugh. He sobers quickly and stares at me, intensity in his eyes, just like the hunter I’ve deemed him to be. “You’re right, I am a hunter, in many ways. I have my sight on my prey and I am so close to having her in my grasp.”

I really enjoyed this story, what better way to get over a cheating d-bag ex than a fun-filled week in Vegas with your best friends? And if you happen to catch the eye of seriously hot man-candy, that just makes better. And when said man-candy makes you an offer you can't refuse, just go for it. And during your time with man-candy you learn he's a billionaire? You literally hit the jackpot.
This had a Pretty Woman-ish type vibe in the story (minus the hooker aspect), but with added kink and D/s thrown in. It was easy to understand Dacotah's feelings of being overwhelmed by everything that happened, I would be too if I'm experiencing things I'd only read about, but I'm learning this stuff in only a week.
There were some things in this book that were brought up but were explained: what happened that Derek doesn't like to be touched during sex? I was also confused as to what exactly occurred when Dacotah found Derek's play room. She freaked (obviously), but their interactions leading up to the room discovery and what happened right after I had to go back and re-read just to make sure I didn't skip something and damned if I can figure out what caused the rift between them. And the end of the book when Derek is on the phone with his PA, the PA tells Derek that she found what he was looking for and that provided it's received, it will arrive the next morning, but we never find out what the item is; he also discusses his plan of action, but again, we don't know the plan.
Overall a good story and I'm glad I got the chance to read this.
