I was given this ebook in exchange for an honest review. I wanted to like this book because i usually like smutty books like this but it just didnt hit with me. Theo was kind of all over the place with how he acted he would act all mysterious and sexy but then the next second would rethink everything he just did and stop what he planned to do. Then the next second he’s like i have to have you right now right here im like wait a minute weren’t you just really upset about how you couldn’t get through this..Amaya didnt really have much personality that i could connect with. Besides her wanting to help her brother which was sweet i guess but didn’t effect the story. Also there was a certain kink that happened early on that i had to skip over because its just not my preference. I mean i liked the plot idea but it just didn’t happen.

A virgin auction seemed like the only option to help her family. No strings, easy money, and thirty days. What will happen when she discovers that it's more than just a means to an end.

A full-on, steamy read for those who need a bit more spice in their romance adventures.

Auctioned to the Greek Billionaire was a super hot read. Check your realities at the door though. Story was a bit far-fetched. Virgin waitress sells herself to a hot greek billionaire who is engaged, but wants to have sex with a virgin in preparation for his upcoming wedding. A bit out of reality. But the book was super hot and the hero super sexy. Fun read.

I received a copy of AUCTIONED TO THE GREEK BILLIONAIRE from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. Thank you to the author and publisher.

FOUR STARS and here’s why:

The falling for the virgin I bought story is a familiar trope. What made this story different was that each character in this book is well written, the dialogue realistic, and the familiar plot twisted enough to keep me up all night to learn what happens next. I could not put it down. It was fast-paced and sexy.

Ahhhhh this was just such a great read. I just didn't want this book to end and I was sad to turn the last page. I'm so excited to see what's next from this author.

Here’s the thing … I have nothing good to say LOL 

•This entire story was ridiculous, silly, preposterous and so OTT that it past fiction, plowed right thru fantasy land and landed on Candyland *blink*

•So the premise/reason that Theo bought Amaya’s virginity is because the last time he bedded a virgin it did not go well and he’s supposed to be getting married soon to a virgin so he wants to bed a virgin before his wedding to his betrothed virgin to make sure he gets it right on his wedding night *blink*

•Do you want to know WHY his virgin experience did not go well? Because apparently, he has such a massive cock that he shredded her insides to hell, and she ended up in the ER *blink* so traumatized was Theo from this that the devirginizing of Amaya actually took place on a dusty and dirty floor of an empty house. So romantic, don’t you think?! *blink*

•The story wasn’t ridiculous enough with all the virgin/cock shenanigans, noooooooo, we need there to be a second layer of ridiculousness and make sure the *conflict* of the story has me screaming “oh for fuck’s sake” R.E.A.L.L.Y. loudly *blink*

Okay, that’s enough bulleting for me. I just cannot wrap my head around much of what I read. The choices that were made by the author and the publisher have me baffled.

Thank you for letting me read an advanced reader copy of Auctioned to the Greek Billionaire.  This review will contain spoilers. 

The premise of this book is similar to other books that are written with this storyline. Poor girl sells her virginity to handsome young billionaire. She has some sort of family issue, normally taking care of a sibling or paying off medical bills. He has some sort of issue with his family. He does something to upset her, she leaves, he goes after her. If described like that, I can name off about 3 books that have the same premise. 

The difference with this book?  Not a lot.  Amaya is taking care of an older brother who has autism, after the tragic death of their parents.  Theo is the billionaire who paid for one month of her time, and her virginity. Not because he is a dirty old man, but because he got drunk one night. Had consensual sex, but because his cock is so big he accidentally hurt the girl (who was a virgin and he didn’t know). And he talks about it a lot at the beginning of the book. About his cock and this weird foot fetish he started out with. 

This book was a fast read. Took about 2 hours to do so. Without to many spoilers, it hit the tropes that a lot of books like this does. Unfortunately, it wasn’t written as well. Maybe if it had been a longer book, I would have enjoyed it better. 

But if you are looking for a fast, fun, and sexy read. This one is worth reading.

Fast-paced read with plenty of steam.  Amaya decides to auction of her virginity to help care for her autistic brother.  Theo needs to learn patience before the wedding night of his arranged marriage to a virgin.  He is rather large and inadvertently hurt another previously.  He has 30 days to be with Amaya, but what will happen when sparks fly and family secrets are revealed.  Fun, entertaining and hot.  I liked it.

With a title and premise like this, I know my expectations shouldn't be high. Even with low expectations, this story still disappointed. And it wasn't just the story, it was the writing. It felt awkward, like a guy writing what he thinks would be a good romance. It didn't feel as if the author could not emote heart or heat or any sort of connection for our characters. Didn't work well for me.

Auctioned To The Greek Billionaire was my first book by Carmen Falcone. It was a good story and I liked the characters.

Auctioned to the Greek Billionaire by Carmen Falcone is book One in The Highest Bidder Series.  This is the story of Amaya Sanchez and Theo Rhodes . 
Amaya's parents have passed on and she is solely responsible for her brother's medical care which on her waitress job is become a issue.  So when she finds out about the Madame Alexa’s Virgin Auction she thinks this is the route to go to get the much needed money.  Theo father has arranged a traditional Greek marriage to a Greek Virgin for him which is more a business arrangement.  But Theo had a bad experience in the past which has left him with doubts about his large size.  So to ensure that this marriage starts off right he goes to the auction to bid someone to practice on before his wedding that should be happening in the next few months. 
There is a intimidate attraction between the two but can these two be able to walk away from what they are feeling? 
Enjoyed their story.

This is a hot and heavy book.

When a girl sells herself for the income to help her brother, and a billionaire wants to gain a bit more practice, we are thrown into this contemporary romance full of expected endings and unexpected steam!

I loved the uniqueness in the characters’ backgrounds and their motives behind what paths they follow. It was fun to see them quickly fall for one another, and the writing immediately brings us in.

I gave this one 5 out of 5 stars, and I highly recommend this one for romance readers who love intense, steamy scenes.

It is a bit of a shorter read, so it’s great for a cozy night in!

This book definitely hits its mark! It's the perfect mix of sexy and steamy. It tells the story of Amaya who is a young woman of modest means who has to auction off her virginity to the highest bidder in order to pay for the mounting debt caused by caring for her handicapped brother. The winning bidder is Theo who is looking to prove something to himself by bidding on Amaya. They both end up getting more then they bargained for. Some good and some bad. If you enjoy contemporary romance involving billionaires, then you'll love this book. I loved the characters, the storyline was wonderful and I kept rooting for them to get their HEA. Put this book and Carmen Falcone at the top of your TBR...you won't regret it!

This is my first book by this author. She is new to me and I am glad that I took the chance to discover her work. Amaya would do anything to help her brother stay safe since she is all that he has. To do so, she decides to enter an auction for her virginity. Theo is trying to save his company so when he see Amaya, he figures that they can both benefit from each other. Little does he know that by the time it is all said and done, he actually needed her more than she needed him. The attraction and chemistry between the characters were great. This story flowed wonderfully and it was steamy when it needed to be but also touching. It was a great read.

I received this ebook copy from the publisher and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I was a little intrigued by the description, but in the end it wasn’t my cup of tea.
Amaya and Theo had chemistry, but it felt robotic and instant.
I had a hard time finishing this book.

I loved the sound of this book. I’m a sucker for the virgin auction plotline. Unfortunately, the setup was really shaky, and I never quite believed in it or the romance. The connection was missing for me. Worth a try for anyone wanting a Greek billionaire and a virgin heroine with a lot of spunk.

A hot and steamy one handed read. Theo is massive in every respect. Amaya is to be his virgin trainer. From start to finish these two blaze a path through this story. Theo has to decide if what was supposed to be a temporary arrangement will need to become permanent.

I have read Carmen Falcone many times and am never disappointed!

I loved this story even more!  It's not just sex, it's romance. A beautiful story, full of emotions, touching, well written.  

Beautiful cover too!

Thank you to NetGalley and Entangled Publishing for the ARC of this book.  This is my honest review.  All opinions are my own.

He buys her at an auction for virgins.  He is from Greece. She is the caretaker of her brother who is austic. He wasn't supposed to fall in love with her but he did so good

This book was exactly what I needed to read to stifle my craving for a short and steamy read. Auctioned to the Greek Billionaire tells the story of Amaya, a young latina who--desperate for cash--sign up to auction off her virginity. Theo is a Greek Tycoone with a hefty problem that could implode his family business if word got out; but after one look at Amaya, he knows that she is the only person who can help solve his problem. However, as days turn into weeks Amaya and Theo begin to learn that when emotions are involved--nothing can stay contractual.

Absolutely enjoyed reading this romance! Falcone does a great job at giving readers a route of instant connection to both our hero and heroine from the very beginning. The chemistry between Theo and Amaya is literally off the chart and I couldn't help but swoon with my fan on high every time the two were in the same room. The character of Amaya is probably my favorite part about the entire novel as she stayed true to who she was even as she evolved as a character. Theo could be considered a close second, but that is solely because I love me a family man hunk. Like hot damn.

The only thing I had a slight issue during my time reading was that certain scene endings kept repeating themselves. Once or twice of having the same outcome is fine with me and I normally don't mind, but I felt like in this novel it repeatedly happened to the point where it slightly pulled me out of the story and I was screaming "Enough already!"

Overall however, I highly enjoyed my time reading and falling for Theo and Amaya's love story. Short, sweet, and sizzling on the steam charts, Auctioned to the Greek Billionaire, is a contemporary romance that you will want to get your hands on!
