Bidding for Keeps by K. Webster

Sorority Secrets: The virgins of Beta Kappa Nu would do anything for each other. Even auction off their most valuable asset…

Vivi Prescott loves Beta Kappa Nu. It’s her escape after a lifetime of living under her wealthy father’s overbearing thumb. She’ll do anything to help her sisters, including auction off her virginity to the highest bidder.

One tiny hitch. She’s not a virgin.

She gave that up three and a half years ago. Right there in the back of her brother’s best friend’s pickup truck. Dallas Monroe was a smug country boy with a dirty ball cap, torn jeans and a perpetual smirk. He showed her what pleasure could be, then let her go without a fight.

The mysterious, arrogant playboy who places the winning bid won’t ever know her secret. But his touch is so familiar, his mouth the one she’s been fantasizing about since forever.

Dallas is all grown up. And he was never bidding for sex… he was bidding for keeps.

For those times when size does matter. The Dirty Bits from Carina Press: quick and dirty, just the way we like it

Bidding for Keeps is the first installment in the Sorority Secrets series.

Vivi's friend's brother is hurt in a fire. The medical bills are piling up and she wants to help any way she can. Asking her father for the funds doesn't work so she decides auctioning off her virginity will work.

I am a die-hard K. Webster reader. I love the sick and twisted or the sexy and fierce but unfortunately for me, Bidding for Keeps was just too overly sweet. It is a short read that is quick and to the point.

Avid Reader☆☆☆
M/F Second Chance Romance

This is not your typical Webster book. It is a short, sweet romance where the girl and guy find each other again in a semi-sweet manner.

Vivi has a sorority sister in need. Despite her past, she's willing to put herself on the line so that her friend's brother can have a fighting chance. I think for me, this is where the story fell apart... it didn't really incorporate into the story well.

There's an auction, a date, a kidnapping, and a resolution in such a short span of time.

I did like that you were able to semi-see the past and history behind the issues. I thought that it helped the story move along. But in the end, this just was not what I expected and was also too short to really develop.

Vivi is in a sorority and when one of the sister’s brother gets burned during a rescue, the sorority sisters pull together to raise money by holding an auction to help cover some medical bills. But the auction is not your normal one, they are auctioning of some of the girls’ virginity to the highest bidder. But Vivi doesn't tell the sisters that she lost hers over three years ago to her brother’s best friend, the man who also broke her heart when he left her.

Dallas can't believe what he is reading. Vivi, the only girl he has loved, is auctioning off her virginity. Something she gave to him over three years ago. What is she thinking? He needs to stop her before something happens to her.

Can Dallas save her, or will his trick make her hate him even more? Can Vivi forgive him for leaving her all those years ago? What happens when her "date" shows up?

This is a quick read that is kind of fun and a sweet, second chance romance. If you are a K. Webster fan and are looking for a dark read, then this one is not for you. I like a sweet read once in a while and this one was just right, so read it and I hope you enjoy it too.

When Bidding for Keeps started, I thought that Vivi was just a spoilt rich girl, but I judged her too soon. She really is just trying to do a good deed by selling off her nonexistent virginity to raise money to pay medical bills for an injured fire fighter.

I also wrongly judged the story, thinking it wasn’t going to be possible to fit a second chance romance in a novella, but it actually worked really well. We got enough information to be invested in the characters without making it feel rushed. The story is a little bit sweet, a little bit romantic, and a little bit sexy.

Bidding for Keeps was a good short read. I’m a fan of novellas and this is the second Dirty Bits novella I’ve read and I will definitely be reading more of them.

I am enjoying the variety and different ways that authors have interpreted "The Dirty Bits" in this series from Carina Press. I would recommend that you give them a try – and remember the premise of all the 'good' bits in a short story and judge them on that basis. They are quick, often cheeky, forays into passion, often with a quick transition to romance. Sometimes a short, sexy story is just what you need!

This book centres around Vivi, who is planning on raising money for an animal shelter by auctioning off her virginity (which may have been given to her first love Dallas a while ago... but hey, it's for charity!). And the winning bidder? It turns out to be someone who might know that he is buying counterfeit goods, but that is not the point. As they come to terms with the past, and the possibilities of the future, the auction may have been in another good cause entirely.

Fun read, thank you, K Webster.
