Grind by Sybil Bartel
Publication date: June 27th 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
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.
Dane’s story is slightly different than that of Alex or Jared. Yes, there’s the sex for money, but as an aside, rather than the primary job. What difference does that make? Probably (ultimately) very little to be honest. But it does set the scene for Dane and his more reserved approach.
Whilst in a lot of ways, I enjoyed this more than the previous books, given the added storyline involving Irena’s husband, I think that it’s precisely because Dane is so buttoned up, that the connection with Irena and his reaction to her seems a little jarring. Not, I hasten to add, to the point of detracting from my overall enjoyment. No, this is still a hot piece of action right on these virtual pages. But it was just enough to jog me from being wrapped up in the story completely.
That said, the writing style is polished, the narrative well paced and the characters three dimensional. All in all, a satisfying conclusion to the trilogy.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

Sybil Bartel grew up in Northern California with her head in a book and her feet in the sand. She dreamt of becoming a painter but the heady scent of libraries with their shelves full of books drew her into the world of storytelling. She loves the New Adult genre, but any story about a love so desperately wrong and impossibly beautiful makes her swoon.
Sybil now resides in Southern Florida and while she doesn’t get to read as much as she likes, she still buries her toes in the sand. If she isn’t writing or fighting to contain the banana plantation in her backyard, you can find her spending time with her handsomely tattooed husband, her brilliantly practical son and a mischievous miniature boxer…
Here are ten things you probably really want to know about Sybil.
She grew up a faculty brat. She can swear like a sailor. She loves men in uniform. She hates being told what to do. She can do your taxes (but don’t ask). The Bird Market in Hong Kong freaks her out. Her favorite word is desperate…or dirty, or both—she can’t decide. She has a thing for muscle cars. But never reply on her for driving directions, ever. And she has a new book boyfriend every week—don’t tell her husband.
