Not the full book. Must buy 2 more to complete the story. Waste of time and money.
He wants something else: me, for one year.
But I don’t even know who he is…
365 days and nights doing everything he wants…except that.
“I’m not going to sleep with you,” I say categorically.
“I’m going to make you a promise,” his eyes challenge mine. “Before our time is up, you’ll beg me for it.”

I absolutely loved this book I couldn't stop reading it.i read it in 1 day and I would read it again and again
Interesting plot. Slow burn. Lots of drama. Love the characters. Book leaves off in a cliffhanger. It was a quick and easy read.
The main character is stupid and easily led, I couldn't stand to finish the 3 book grouping I purchased, and in general I feel I have a pretty high tolerance for things.
Have you ever read something hoping that if you read more it would eventually get better? That was me reading this book. It never got better. Very poorly executed and I will agree with the other reviewers that this book could have been written in one book and not a trilogy. I will not waste my time reading the others. Hope this helps.
No spoiler with review. This is a partial book with a cliff-hanger ending. A mysterious $167,699 check enabling exact payment of her student loan is received by the female protagonist. After paying her loan, Olive accepts a mysterious invitation and a "First-Class" ticket to Maui, Hawaii. Is she actually free of debt? That concept is the actual start of the story, and could have been produced within a few paragraphs, instead of stretched out artificially. At one point Olive starts to read a book by one of her favorite authors, who just happens to be Charlotte Byrd. Not only does this author blatantly gives herself a pat on the back via her female protagonist, but also has the character refer to scenes in one of her books. Had this been done with more subtlety it might have been effective, but instead comes across as self-serving, jarring, and juvenile.
Tell Me to Stop has grammatical errors, and little depth, although it does include a couple of interesting events. Overall, this is just part of a story that is artificially divided so that income can be derived from each of the subsequent parts. This is certainly less difficult than filling those additional pages with character development and story development. This segmented style is a disservice to the readers who purchase books from writers who withhold most of the story. A book, as with a story, should be complete; consisting of a beginning, a middle, and an end. Many of the partial books/parts of a series have dialogue and scenes that are stretched, sometimes almost endlessly, in order to obtain sufficient pages in which to encompass each book part. I often wonder if many of the authors who publish series digitally even possess the creative skills necessary for development of complete stories, and of characters with complexity. Certainly, producing a partial book allows the writer to kick the can down the road when it comes to providing details needed for a conclusion.
Tell Me to Stop did not provide enough to encourage this reader to want to pursue the additional parts. It suffers the similar condition of many such partial/series “books”; that of projecting as stretched and shallow. As more writers artificially divide their one story into multiple, so-called “books”, I find myself turning back to paperbacks, because those paperbacks have complete stories, and hence are more worth the cost. When purchasing digital books, I actively search for authors who, within their books, provide that for which I am paying; a complete story.
4 stars for story potential, 2 stars for author execution, averaged into a score of 3 stars
Six books? Are you kidding me? That is absolutely ridiculous. The first book was okay but I am not buying 5 more! Who even knows if that is all she has planned. I am certainly not making a life time commitment to this author!
Main character was a bit mousy, but found her spine when she finally put her foot down. The story ended right when it got good. I'd continue with the series.
