Title: His Dirty Demands
Author: Fiona Murphy
Release Date: March 5, 2019
Three billionaire brothers: Cesare, Enzo, and Dante Sabatini have everything except the one thing money can’t buy. Three big beautiful Alicia, Bethany, and Chloe will teach them the ABCs of love. Follow these couples as they negotiate the riskiest deal of all, falling in love.
It’s hard to believe when I get the call: an offer to work for one of the Sabatini brothers. Cesare and Dante head a real estate firm that buys, sells, and owns some of the most spectacular real estate in Chicago. Dante Sabatini is the youngest of the brothers, and even though he’s an arrogant manwhore he doesn’t come close to the a$$hole level of the oldest Sabatini, Cesare. While I work for Dante, Cesare is in the office across the hall—and too close for comfort. I’m not sure what misfiring synapse has my stomach flipping a thousand times a minute or my skin hot and tight when the man is around, but I’m doing my best to ignore it. Even if I weren’t a virgin, I’m very aware getting involved with Cesare Sabatini would be a complete disaster.
Until the moment I find out Cesare is having the same problem. Seriously? The insanely gorgeous billionaire wants me? My fat ass? Okay, not nice, but I believe in being honest in all things, and honestly I’m a plus-size woman who has become numb to insults I have heard about my weight. I’m far from numb at the idea of throwing caution to the wind and giving in to the dirty demands Cesare whispered in my ear.
Then I get a call I never thought I would have to deal with. My little sister is being blackmailed. I need twenty five thousand dollars or her future goes up in flames. I’m borrowing it, I’ll put it right back.
When Cesare finds out, he demands twenty-five days and nights of my body. Only once I’m in his home and life, twenty-five days isn’t enough—I want forever. But what does Cesare want?
~MEET THE AUTHOR~
Due to commitment issues I have lived in many different cities and my favorite is Chicago but I have managed to settle into Austin and perhaps my commitment issues are behind me.
I have enjoyed reading from a very young age and it wasn’t long before the children books bored me and I read the books my mother enjoyed Stephen King and Dean Koontz and I didn’t sleep without the light on until I was about ten.
I came across my first Harlequin by accident and it was love at first read, no one died and happy endings? It was a whole new world and I loved it.
I wrote my first story at eight and everyone died, of course. Since then I would like to think I’ve gotten better and now I’m writing the happily ever afters I first fell in love with, with some hot sex thrown in along the way.

Unfortunately, this book had several things I absolute hate in a romance book. Constant talk about the hero’s sexual past. Constant talk about how fat the heroine is, and for crying out loud she was a 29-year-old virgin!!!! Yes this is mentioned in the synopsis, but I didn’t realize she would be that old. I was expecting a much younger heroine. I was ready to throw in the towel 30 pages in. However, a quiter I am not, so I soldiered on. I will not lie, the first 60% of this book was a hot mess. Cesare was an asshole that ran hot and cold. Alicia couldn’t stop harping on how “fat” she is. No one in this company had an ounce of professionalism. Who goes around telling people an employee is a virgin??!! It just wasn’t great.
However, the last 40% was better. People got their heads out of their asses. The plot seemed to come together more. We finally get sex. Cesare gets a personality transplant. Alicia stopped taking about how “fat” she is. On another positive note, for all the talk about his sexual past none of his former conquests show up. Last, it was all wrapped up in an incredibly abrupt ending.This was heading towards a 2-Star rating, but the last 40% brought it up to 3-Stars. That said, I am on the fence about Dante’s book. He is a complete manwhore, and I am sure Bethany will be a virgin. We will see I guess.
