The Vitamin D Treatment

Jed Carson is an unscrupulous New York City playboy with a dark past who is bored with his life and determined to break away from his overbearing and ruthless father. Searching for a fresh start and new pleasures, he moves to Colorado and meets Olivia Brown, an innocent young woman grieving her parents' recent death, and he wantonly seduces her and teaches her about sex. 
A custody battle, pregnancy and murder complicate their sexual relationship and bring the pair closer together, and a seemingly harmless therapy turns their lives upside down and changes them both forever. 
(Strong sexual content)


Excerpt:


“You should know, Olivia, I heard everything,” he murmurs, his voice low and silky.
Olivia glares at him, panic in her eyes.  She places the drink on the coffee table and drops to the sofa, lowering her head and covering her eyes with slender hands.  Can she be any more miserable?  Everything?  Shit!
Jed sets the drink on the side table, rises slowly and moves to the sofa.  He sits close and drapes an arm over the backrest behind her.  He cups her chin and forces her to look at him.  “There’s nothing to be ashamed of, Olivia,” he says softly, cocking his head to the side and smiling a knowing smile.
“I’m not,” she breathes, feeling that delicious pull, her belly muscles tightening.

“Good.  So have you ever had an orgasm?”
Olivia blinks.  Jeez.  She can’t believe he’s asking–mentioning–saying it out loud.  She wants to be offended by the extremely inappropriate question, but she can’t muster the emotion.  Her brain has left the building.
“Well?” he persists.
“No,” she mumbles miserably.

His eyes soften and he frees her chin.  “What about when you’re alone, Olivia?” he asks seductively, nuzzling his nose in her neck.
Jeez.  Can she be more embarrassed?  How can he sit there and calmly talk about orgasms?
Jed rises slowly and moves back to the chair.  He sits, picks up the drink, crosses a leg over a knee and rhythmically runs an index finger back and forth over his lower lip, his eyes locked on her.  Although seemingly cool on the outside, his insides are churning.  Pure lust rages within him–combustible, overwhelming desire.  Fuck.  He has never felt like this before and he knows he’s playing with fire.
Olivia peeks up at him, her green eyes guarded.  She will not admit to him that she has never had an orgasm.  Jeez.  She gulps the rest of the drink and waits for the fire to spread through her.  “I bet you can change that,” she says bravely, smiling a shy crooked smile.
Jed spits a mouthful of cognac back into the glass and his eyes widen.  “You don’t know what you’re saying, Olivia,” he warns harshly, his eyes black and impassive.
Olivia arches a brow–questioning him–daring him.

“You don’t know me, Olivia,” he smirks, continuing to rub a finger over his lower lip, his brows furrowing.
“You don’t want me?” she squeaks, her heart in her throat.
Olivia’s sweet innocence tugs at his heart and he nervously rakes a hand through his hair.  He wants her bad.  “I want you, Olivia.  But I can’t promise you anything,” he sighs.
“Can you promise me an orgasm?” she baits, her voice quivering and she can’t believe the words came out of her mouth.

Rating: 2/5

Note: If you are not 18 or above this book is NOT for you!

Olivia Brown is a 21 year old extremely talented (especially when it comes to languages) orphaned daughter of recently deceased owners of Rutherford Manson who has to take care of business and her younger brother. Enters Jed Carson who wants to settle in Colorado and buy the hotel but gets "occupied" with Olivia and throws the "Rules" out of the window. Jed Carson is a playboy and even though Olivia knows that, she can't help but be attracted to him. She is a virgin-non-virgin and Jed seems to be capable of changing that status. From day one both of them feel an intense attraction that just keeps on getting more intense.The author tells you what kind of people the characters are and you get a sense of what kind of people she wanted them to be but it was not clearly shown in the story. There is almost zero character development and at times the main characters almost become interchangeable. This is because the point of view keeps on rapidly changing and there is absolutely no distinction between the characters feelings, thoughts or even dialogues. There are many places where "big words" are used but their meanings are not applicable and definitely do not make sense. Also constant repetition is really unappealing. Fuck, Jeez, Fuck, Jeez and it goes on and on. The descriptions are so "over-hyped" and again repeatedly "flowery" that after few chapters they become unbearable. Read the following captions in the pictures and you will get what I am talking about. Also the words like "juices" and "genitals" really killed it for me. What's wrong with cum? I was just getting used to "seeds" *shuddering* but JUICES. That's too much.

I could neither relate to the characters nor sympathize with them. If the story is revised with maybe a slower pace in the beginning, better dialogues and lesser repetitions then the book will easily go from 2 to 4 or at least 3.5
The best part for me was the setting. I fell in love with Rutherford Manson, it seemed like paradise on Earth. Worse part would be how fake the characters seemed. All the sweet lovey-dovey interactions between Olivia and her brother Ben was just over-the-top and even her grief wasn't directed and depicted properly. If you don't over think while reading I am sure you are gonna enjoy the book else.....
