I enjoyed this BDSM story with great characters, romance and intrigue. Kimani was a 25 year old black free lance journalist from Stanford that wanted to do an expose on an auction where women were auctioned for a week. Her roommate had done it and came back with bruises. She was promised a full time position if she got the expose. She was auctioned and won by a man that bought a young virgin also. It didn't go like she planned, but she lucked out. There wasn't much BDSM, but there is a cliffhanger and it looks like more to come. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy.

Ben and Jason were cousin's and if weren't for the fact that Jake was Jason's friend and former college roommate, and Ben's father wanted Jake's business connections, Ben would have called it a night. He just really didn't like the guy with his smug expressions and continually spouting off how much everything cost. Hell, Ben could afford everything Jake kept going on about and more but he never felt the need to brag about it. Now they're talking about going to the Scarlet auction that only happens once a month at midnight. Ben was given a choice, bring a woman from the auction or come stag. Period.

Kimani Taylor had finally made it though all the preliminaries, almost having backed out several times. Signing all the legal documents in front of four different attorneys, being asked when she lost her virginity, how many sexual partners she's had, the physical exam and then the interview with the woman asking about her sexual preferences. When she agreed to be engaged in hardcore BDSM she wasn't worried. Her plan was to get bid on, get to know the "buyer" and the other participants of the Scarlet Auction, pull out before any sex actually happened, then write the scoop that would land her a job with the San Francisco Tribune. Given she was only a year out of journalism school, she needed an edge worthy of being noticed.

What a bizarre set of circumstances. Is your interest piqued about the auction, the week at the cabin, even the research for the story. The buildup in this book will keep your interest piqued. Go in knowing there is a cliff hanger.

His For A Week Bought is a very different genre than Em Brown’s Erotic BDSM Historical stories. Bought is a contemporary BDSM story of Kimani a 25 year old bright but inexperienced free-lance journalist with a degree from Stanford. When her roommate arrives bruised and clearly abused, Kimani learns of sex auction where women were auctioned for a week in exchange for a significant sum of money after the entrants pay a significant processing fee. Kimani does not see the risks and has no concept of the potential personal danger entering such an enterprise on her own with no backup to do an inside story. Kimani is in over her head in so many ways. Her lack of real world experience does not prepare her for the potential dangers of researching such an expose. Lucky for Kimani that no one in the story is really tech savvy or the broach with the hidden spy camera secured to her choker could lead to a path that could be horrific to say the least when Jake could or would transition from abusive to perhaps gruesome horror.
We have in this story the giant disconnect between a woman who has signed up for willing sexual interaction and exhibits none of the indicators of being sexy, alluring, responsive, and attractive to men who want nothing more than to have a woman as a sex toy. In men’s eyes, women that practice this behavior serve the pure purpose of providing satisfaction and showcasing their sexual being. Once auctioned, Kimani is separated from her mobile phone, driven hundreds of miles from her familiar turf and completely isolated. Ben is a true alpha and thwarts Jake’s crude, crass, and blunts some of his abusive behavior at every step. We really see vast cultural differences between the principal men assembled ostensibly for business. Kimani asks Ben to use his mobile phone and she sends a text message to her editor. With Ben’s resources and potential business and political risks, he questions who was this woman, who did she call, and WHY? The second half of this book should be most interesting.

This is one of those teaser novellas, with the first book being free and ending on a cliffhanger. I don't feel compelled to pay for future books. The plot is interesting: a journalist who willingly enlists herself in a sex slave auction so that she can write a story about it. But she's so stupid. She thinks she will be treated well and allowed to keep her cell phone even after knowing that her roommate was savagely beaten in this scenario? And of course, along comes Ben, the Master with the heart of gold. The other men in the sex slave cabin are fairly despicable; the women seem to know what they signed up for, however. Nothing happens in the book, as you're supposed to be enticed into buying the next book. Not for me.

Jake, Jason, and Derek are off to an auction at The Scarlet Auction. They were going away to Jake's cabin for a week and they all were going to bid on someone to take. Kimani goes to the Scarlet Auction she is a journalist and she was hoping to get bid on get to know the person and then get the story. Kimani and another girl were taken and whisked away and then put in a dark basement without food and facilities by Jake. He was cruel and was good at throwing racial slj urs at Kimani. Ben arrives at the cabin to find both girls on their knees one was naked the other dressed. Ben took a look at Kimani and saw the bruise to the face that Jake had done while she was captivity in the basement. Since Ben didn't go to the auction he told Jake he would pay two hundred thousand dollars to buy her. What he liked about her that she had fire in her eyes and wasn't afraid to say what was on her mind. She borrowed Ben's phone and proceeded to send a text to her boss and accidentally left the text on his phone. He knew something was going on and he wants to find all of her secrets and submission. Ben went a long a little with Jake because he was trying to get a new. Jake takes them all out on the boat with him But, none of the girls could wear clothing. Kimani asked Ben for his cellphone again so she went into the bathroom to talk Ben over hears part of the conversation wondering why she mentioned his uncle.
This book is a cliffhanger which I don't like. That is why I gave it 3 stars. Trigger Points: physical abuse racial slurs

Another incredible offering from Em Brown!
This is a contemporary BDSM romance, not a BDSM historical that I have come to know and love from Em Brown but that’s okay because this is a completely wonderful story. A little dark and a little unnerving at times but in definite Em Brown fashion, it is still an enticing and enthralling and compelling story that I just couldn’t put it down. The characters come from different worlds and are thrust together for a week, the two main characters are attracted to each other but very unexpectedly so and so the story unfolds in unexpected ways. It kept me on my toes.
Just one thing, this is a cliffhanger so be warned that this story doesn’t wind up in a tidy, little neat bow at the end. I am in the edge of my seat waiting for the second book!

I have read many of Ms Brown's historical romances, but this is my first modern story by her. This seems a very crowded genre to write in but I found her choice of characters interesting; an African American heroine and an Asian hero. The characters, back story and locations are well written. The dialogue for the most part seems realistic and not stilted. The story is just getting started but I found the characters and storyline engaging enough that I really want to know what happens to Kimani and Ben going forward.

I hate a story with no end, if I want to read the finish I have to buy another book, not my idea of a good read.

This book had me all over the place with my emotions. Between wanting to literally shake some common sense into some of the female characters, wanting to castrate some of the Male characters , and just being completely hot and bothered from Ben's actions. This was truly a story that covered all the bases. I was so very disappointed that it ended right when it was really getting started. Oh well, guess I'll have to read book 2.
