*REVIEW* ~ 30 Days to Syn, by Charlotte Boyett-Compo ~

30DaystoSyn_3Sizzling and Emotional!

Contemporary Erotic Romance

The ad reads: Young woman (American only) willing to engage in domination roleplay. No BDSM. Salary: $1,000,000 upon completion of contract. Length of employment: 30 consecutive nights.

Drowning in debt, Melina Wynth is going under for the third time. With a dead-end job and a disabled brother dependent on her, the ad in the paper could be the lifeline to keep her from sinking. Reeling in her courage, she casts her line.  Synjyn McGregor is a shark—a very wealthy shark from Down Under—and his bite could prove to be her undoing. But Lina is determined she isn’t going to allow him to get away. The length of employment might read thirty nights, but she suspects he is fishing for something more.

Synjyn needs a woman who will love him—mentally and physically—as never before. A woman whose touch will not only put the billionaire in his place but keep him there…begging for more. He will quickly realize Lina is made for Syn.

A Romantica® contemporary erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave.

My Review

Do yourself a favour and download this now! This erotic contemporary romance is by far one of my Top Reads for 2014. It packs one helluva punch: a tortured alpha male; a sassy and selfless heroine; panty drenching sexual tension and sizzling love making scenes; drama; emotion and humour; and super supporting characters.

Synjyn McGregor is now on my list of favourite book boyfriends alongside the likes of Karen Marie Moning’s Barrons and JR Ward’s Wrath. He has one of THE most heart breaking back stories imaginable, explaining his take on life and relationships. An out and out dominant on the surface and a seemingly impossible man to work for, underneath he is all heart to those whom he cares for. His actions towards Lina at the start of the novel were far from endearing, but I quickly warmed to him as I began to understand this scarred man who so badly needs the one thing he has rejected – love. Not only that but I ADORED his special brand of dominance!

Lina is a selfless, sassy and adorable heroine. I admired her reasons for entering into the contract with Syn and loved that she was no pushover. She stands up to him and as she spends more time with him she realises that there is more to him than meets the eye. There are many fireworks between the pair, but they are so well matched, physically and emotionally and are just wonderful for each other. The love making scenes are sublime and had me glued to my Kindle! As the 30 days came to a close I was on the edge of my seat wondering if Syn would let Lina go and if Lina would take the money and run. Their relationship is not only complicated by the contract and Syn’s backstory, but also by characters from Syn’s past and present, who do not have his best interests at heart. There were a number of times when I was literally reduced to tears as I felt the intensity of their emotions.

The supporting characters have their own distinct personalities and quirks and play key roles in the development of the plot. Indeed, the banter between the American Lina and Syn, a New Zealander, had me in stitches as did the repartee between Syn and his trusted employees, fellow New Zealanders, who are also his lifelong friends. Please note that the book does contain scenes of violence and references to past abuse, which contrast with the world of wealth and decadence in which Syn moves.

30 Days to Syn is a sizzling dramatic read with great plot twists and turns, involving passion, violence and heart rending scenes. I recommend it to lovers of erotic contemporary romance who love alpha males, strong heroines and unforgettable sexy and intense scenes of power play.
