ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date May 5, 2015
After graduating from her M.B.A. program, Alice Reed is surprised when she’s recruited for the management training experience at legendary Camp Durand, owned by Durand Inc.’s young, billionaire CEO, Dylan Fall. The company usually recruits from Ivy League schools, not insignificant colleges like Alice’s.
Alice enthusiastically accepts, but she still wonders why Dylan would choose a girl from the wrong side of the tracks for the prestigious program. But after a passionate encounter one night, she discovers exactly why—Dylan wants her, and Alice can hardly resist his fierce sexual appetites, though she is amazed that she could appeal to an experienced, sophisticated man like Dylan.
As Dylan introduces her to thrilling, erotic territory, Alice discovers a delicious new part of herself. Night after night, she steals away to find ecstasy and escape in Dylan’s arms. But behind her lover’s powerfully magnetic facade, Alice senses darkness, secrets from Dylan’s past lurking in his beautiful, lonely mansion—secrets that are starting to haunt Alice. And the ghosts of the truth might tear Dylan and Alice apart forever.
REVIEW: GLIMMER is the first installment in Beth Kery’s new, contemporary, adult erotic romance series focusing on M.B.A. graduate Alice Reed and billionaire CEO of Durand Enterprises Dylan Fall.
The storyline follows Alice as she is recruited for the prestigious Camp Durand-a management trainee program for the best of the best at America’s elite business schools. Alice is all too aware that Durand Enterprises usually recruits from the Ivy League schools and her acceptance into the program comes as a bit of a surprise-Alice grew up in the slums with a drug addicted mother and she attended a lesser known college not on Durand’s radar. Alice’s application interview with Durand CEO Dylan Fall finds Alice both on the offense and defense, but there is an immediate attraction that Alice refuses to acknowledge. As the camp ‘ trainees’ begin their month long management program, Alice begins a secret affair with Dylan Fall.
The relationship between Alice and Dylan is highly sexual and erotic. Dylan likes a little bit of control and kink in the bedroom; there is some definite bondage and discipline play between our couple. But Dylan has a secret that when exposed will change the dynamics of his relationship with Alice; and change Alice’s life forever. The $ex scenes are erotic, exploratory and provocative.
There are several colorful, engaging and interesting supporting characters including a number of fellow management trainee leaders-all vying for the coveted win and a chance to work for Durand Inc.- Thad Schaefer is a young man whose romantic interest in Alice is questionable, and Brooke Seifert who has a history with Thad and several of the other management trainees. We are introduced to Alice’s Red Team camp members-at risk teens from similar backgrounds and low socio-economic status. Camp Durand teams up management trainees with underprivileged kids in an effort to determine who would best be suited at Durand Enterprises. It is a sociological experiment where teams compete against one another and in the process the management trainees vie for a position with Durand Inc. The requisite evil comes in the form of Alice’s main competition-Thad and Brooke.
GLIMMER is an intoxicating and intense storyline with an intriguing premise and exciting twist. Although the build up allowed for a few hints and clues, I realized the ‘truth’ very early on. Beth Kery writes an incredible storyline of loss, love and never giving up.
