For 100 Days Synopsis:
Pleasure has a price . . .
Just when everything in my life is falling apart, I find a chance to turn it around--to step into someone else's glittering world, if only for a little while. I become someone new, no longer the woman defined by an ugly past, but a woman freer and bolder than myself. A woman who isn't afraid to explore every passion, even at its darkest, with a mysterious and seductive man who believes my mask is real.
Handsome and commanding, enigmatic and irresistible, billionaire Dominic Baine is an obsession I cannot afford and should not risk. He ushers me into consuming new pleasures and addicting new desires, until the line between my real life and the fantasy one I've stolen with him begins to blur.
I know I cannot keep my truth from him. I know my past will not stay buried forever. But before I can make it right, everything comes crashing down. I have deceived this powerful, dangerous man . . . and now there is a price to be paid.

This is the first book I read from Lara Adrian that wasn’t part of the “Breed” series, and I can say that I really liked it! It’s a step up on the heat level from her more mainstream PNR.
This is the 1st novel of the “100” trilogy, and it ends in a bit of a cliff-hanger(be warned). It’s the love story of Avery and Dominc(Nick). Avery is a painter that supports herself as a bartender. She’s had rough life, and the hits keep coming. She has problems with the art gallery that curates her work, and to make everything been better she’s getting evicted. Her luck changes when a customer asks her to housesit her apartment and she crashes into Dominic in the lobby.
We don’t get that much background about either of them, till the end of the book where we get all of Avery’s story. We get hints that help a bit with understanding her choices, but that’s not always enough. Avery is though and I like her, but her pride and fear really kick her ass. She (almost) never takes chances and she prefers to tell lies rather than to opt for communication, I can never understand why this is such a big thing in Romancelandia(but it’s a discussion for another time).
Everything we know about Dominic it’s from Avery’s POV. He’s mysterious, driven, brilliant and really hot(it’s shallow, but I don’t care!). The only difference between him and other billionaires is that he’s not an workaholic, he takes time off and delegates. Everything else is kind of the same, but don’t get me wrong, I really liked that.
The only thing besides the lack of communication and the accent on sex that I didn’t like was the introduction of some secondary/minor characters that didn’t really have a part to play in the story. I’m sure the author will do something with them till the end of the trilogy, but I think she could have found a better way of involving them in the plot.
All in all Ms Adrian has written a very nice start to this contemporary trilogy of hers, and I’ll definitely read the next books.
