He’s about to take control of her body…and her dream.
When River set up a fundraiser to kick-start her nail polish business, she never expected someone to pay five thousand dollars just to have dinner with her. But when she meets her mysterious benefactor, he turns out to be billionaire Kane Winters—the one man from her past who she never wanted to see again.
Kane is determined to right the wrong that happened to River in college—because of him. She’s been an obsession he can’t escape…and Kane wants River more than he’s ever wanted anything. So he offers her a deal she can’t refuse: marry him and her business will be success. But River’s knight in shining armor isn’t looking for a platonic business deal. He wants their marriage to be real…in every way.
Nailed is the first novel I have read from Opal Carew and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised! This novel had me intrigued and hooked from the start. I liked how it jumped from the Past to the Present, giving us the whole story of River and Kane’s relationship.
Kane Winters has been intrigued by River since he first met her in college. What started off as a bet to ask her out turned into so much more for him. Two days of pure bliss ended drastically when River finds out Kane has deceived her in the worst possible and humiliating way.
Now years later, River is on the verge of starting up he own Nail Polish line, but with all the promoting and product launching, she realizes this is getting expensive. She starts a Kick Starter fund-raiser in hopes of earning money. What she doesn’t factor in is the blast from her past that is about to storm into her life and cause a complete uproar. Kane is motivated by guilt, lust, and love. He has a plan to help River out in starting this business venture, but she has to play by his rules and settle on his terms.
I loved how fast paced this novel is. I loved Kane and River, it was interesting to see how the two reacquired the lust and chemistry they once felt for each other and to see River actually let go of all the wrong that was done to her.
I also really enjoyed the little twist at the end of this novel. Even though I was expecting it and I did see it coming halfway through the novel, it was still a fun little scene.
Nailed is jam-packed full of sexy scenes and igniting chemistry!
Okay now onto the reason why I had to drop a star. Around the middle of the novel a couple of the scenes were a little to repetitive for me.
Overall, I really enjoyed this novel. I consumed Nailed in one sitting. I recommend this novel to anyone looking for a highly erotic read with a kick ass story line!

This novel does have a Menage scene that involves MMF…If you aren’t into that type of thing I recommend not reading the last chapter. That’s the only chapter it takes place in, the rest of the novel is all MF.
