I’m silent. I’m trained. I’m lethal.

My hand skimming down your thigh, my gaze a weapon—I know more ways to kill you than please you.

But you’re not paying for my aim. You’re paying for my control. Bringing you a breath away from ecstasy, watching you beg as I hold back your release, I’ll show you exactly what you’ve been missing. Your hunger is my currency and five thousand is my price. I only have one rule—no repeats, because I’m not for keeps. I’m for sale.

One slow grind and I’ll give you exactly what you paid for.

Grind is the third book in the Thrust series by author Sybil Bartel. I have not read the other books in this series and had no issues following along.  This is a insta-love romance, which occurs over a couple of days.  So, you will need to buckle your seat belts for Dane, a very possessive alpha male!

At times within the story, I needed to suspend reality.  I think the fact that Irina was abused by her “husband” was the only factor that bugged me.  I don’t know of any woman who went through what she did and able to fall in love with a stranger in a couple of days. But, don’t get me wrong… I completely enjoyed Dane’s possessiveness and alpha male qualities.  There was a lot of action, drama, angst, and some very steamy scenes!
