Review: Finn by Liz Meldon (All In #1)

Skye Summers: Museum Studies grad, yoga enthusiast, sushi fanatic, self-proclaimed cat lady…

Sugar baby hopelessly falling for her sugar daddy.

Unfortunately for Skye, internet security billionaire Cole Daniels, professional workaholic, has always been more like a best friend. When they were paired through an online sugar daddy service in Skye’s most desperate hour, Cole rescued her from financial ruin and a stress-induced breakdown. In return, she has kept the press off his back by posing as his girlfriend for the last four years.

But Skye wants more. Not money or fame, but more of him. Cole: sweet, funny, and ceaselessly charming. At times, even he seems to crave a shift in their relationship to something a little messier—before swiftly pulling right back into the friend zone.

Things take a turn for the scandalous, however, when the latest gift from her sugar daddy arrives: a new dress. He’s taking Skye to a swanky soiree that evening, and the accompanying note has a titillating aside:

PS: Wear something underneath that makes you feel sexy.

Thrilled, Skye obliges with her most daring lingerie. But when Cole’s ulterior motives for the night surface, she’s forced to swallow her disappointment and seek out her own fun—which arrives in the form of the sinfully handsome heir to a chocolate empire, Finn Rai.”

What I thought:

*Thank you to the author for sending me an ARC in exchange for an honest review*

I fell in love with Meldon’s writing earlier this year, and couldn’t resist the chance to receive an ARC of the first novella in her latest series! <3

The MC and cat person Skye is madly attracted to her sugar daddy Cole, but since their contract states that sex isn’t part of the agreement she doesn’t know what to do. Cole hasn’t shown any romantic interest in her – until he invites her to a party, last-minute, and attaches a note asking her to dress in something sexy under her dress. What’s a girl to make of that? And the party then turns out to be a sex party. What’s a girl to make of that? Did he ask her to wear something sexy underneath for his sake, or because of the party’s undress code?

Cole is his usual pre-occupied self, doesn’t respond to her flirt attempts, and abandons her for much longer than agreed during the party. Lucky for Skye, she runs into handsome Finn with the sexy British accent.

Meldon’s books are packed with believable characters who just try to make the best out of each day. That’s why I love her heroes and heroines – you may not be able to relate to having a sugar daddy or attending sex parties (or maybe you are? I don’t judge), but you can relate to her characters who are beautifully flawed and likeable, and who make mistakes when they try to do the right thing and end up having regrets anyway. Meldon’s characters are some of the most believable ones I’ve ever read, and I love how she blends the unusual with the very relatable.

You can easily get through this in one sitting. If the day job wasn’t a thing, I’d have read this in one go, too!

Please be aware that this is an erotic novella and not suitable for younger readers. There’s a lot of graphic content, so if you’re not comfortable with this genre this book isn’t for you.

Finn is out TOMORROW, friends! So if this sounds like your cuppa tea pre-order it now or make a note for tomorrow! <3
