Graves Buchanan has had to climb farther and higher than any of his friends, singlehandedly becoming a billionaire in less than two decades, even with a rotten poor childhood in the streets. He likes sex the way he learned it; animal, raw and without any strings attached. But even as messed-up as he is, he cares deeply for his best friend’s baby sister, Chloe Lexington. But Chloe is an heiress, a ‘princess’, and no matter how much he wants her, Graves doesn’t think he has it in him to handle a girl like her.
But Chloe has other plans for him, and she’s not taking no for an answer. She’s been warned against Graves by her brother, Daniel, and against all of his eccentric billionaire friends, but Chloe has merely been biding her time. Now that she’s almost twenty-five, she’s determined to have the man she’s always wanted, and she’ll use anything as incentive to be claimed by him, at last.
Probably needed more development. Graves gets developed more in the sense we get to know him through his rough exterior down to his sweet heart, but also his tragic past. Chloe was a kind girl, but I never really got to know who she was.
There wasn’t much built up or tension. It was just Chloe going after Graves and then one night of (very steamy hot) sex. I think more establishment of feelings needed to be created. I wasn’t entirely convinced these two were madly in love because I didn’t get the journey to that point. It all moved from friendship to sex to relationship fairly quickly.
Not much there really. It was a very short novella so not much happens besides Graves finally giving into Chloe and a very abrupt ending. If this was a regular lengthy novel, I’d get more than I wanted out of it all. It just needed to be drawn out just a bit more.
Overall, Claimed by Him was a short, but sizzling hot novel that was very very easy to read. This book was definitely a tease that leaves you wanting way more than what you’re given. While Claimed by Him had mind-blowing orgasmic sexy times and was completely engaging, it probably needed to be longer and developed even further to truly make it amazing.
