SUMMARY
When you accidentally run into the chance of a lifetime, do you embrace it, no matter what the conditions?

Eighteen-year-old native girl Dian Cinta has aspirations to save enough money for a college course—a tall order for someone who works at a coffee stand. But when she collides with billionaire Joseph van der Waals at Jakarta airport, he offers to upgrade her to a Master's degree instead, on condition that she spends a year working with him as he travels the world in his private jet. It seems like the chance of a lifetime to impoverished Dian—until she learns that Joseph prefers his employees to share his appetite for sexual experimentation.

She has only moments to choose her future before he flies from her life forever.

Reader Advisory: The mile-high club has never been this crowded before. Five men and women promised body and soul to a billionaire. It could get messy.

"I shivered as Jenna fixed her gaze upon me. This was the first time I'd witnessed people having sex… to witness this disturbing mix of pain and raw pleasure set my heart racing with both fear and excitement."

Dian Cinta is a beautiful and intelligent young woman, struggling to survive in an impoverished section of Jakarta, Indonesia. Dian's father, who works on a rubber plantation, sacrificed his savings to pay for her English language education. As her mother's eyesight fails, jeopardizing her job sewing shoes in a factory, Dian dreams of earning enough money to pay for a class in Economics to help protect her parents from destitution.

Joseph van der Waal is a man who is accustomed to having anything and anyone he desires. An international businessman who respects hard work and ambition, he is quick to recognize potential in those around him and willing to offer once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to those who show loyalty. Joseph is also a man with unusual sexual appetites and a lust for life that he expects his employees to share – and satisfy – without inhibition.

When a chance meeting brings Joseph and Dian together in the Jakarta airport, it's clear that neither will ever be the same. Drawn to her innocence and her desire to help her family escape the oppressive poverty that surrounds them, Joseph sees a chance to help Dian fulfill her wildest dreams – and her wildest fantasies.

With the help of two of Joseph's most faithful employees, Samuel and Patricia, both of whom were elevated from obscurity by his power, Dian is informed that those who agree to work for Joseph must be ready to give themselves to him and, if it pleases him, to each other, "body and soul."

Joseph offers Dian not only a chance to take a college class, but to obtain a Master's Degree, on the condition that she will learn to submit to his desires. Awed by his power and inspired by the hope of a new and exciting future, Dian agrees to his seductive terms and boards his private jet.

Once aboard his plane, Dian is immediately immersed in a series of eye-opening sexual experiences that simultaneously frighten and tantalize her. Though Joseph respects her initial reservations, Dian witnesses and participates in acts of public pleasure involving women and men, including Joseph taking, and disciplining, an eager flight attendant and becoming the fourth participant in an intense sexual tryst in Joseph's onboard bedroom – with the promise of much more passion to come.

At only 34 pages, Annie Oakfield's CHANCE OF A LIFETIME is an intensely hot tour de force that will leave most readers begging for more. Unlike many erotic short stories, which may contain 1-2 scenes of passion, Ms. Oakfield interweaves the entire second half of CHANCE OF A LIFETIME with lustful encounters.

Though the sexual content in this work is no more graphic than the acts of desire depicted in many other erotic romance stories, it is important to note that Oakfield does incorporate male-female, female-female and male-male sexual acts into her story, as well as group sexual experiences. However, the author does provide a reader advisory on the summary page for readers who are seeking a more traditional approach to erotica.

Overall, CHANCE OF A LIFETIME is well-written, thoughtfully researched and carefully edited. Furthermore, Dian's character has a legitimately engrossing backstory and, in addition to enjoying the steamy content, the reader will likely find themselves cheering for Dian to find success.

That said, the brevity of the work does limit character development significantly. Though it is clearly part of the Jet Set Billionaires series, and the supporting characters will likely be explored in later works, CHANCE OF A LIFETIME doesn't entirely feel like a standalone book. While the abrupt end to this work may drive interest in the second part of Dian's story, some readers may feel a bit caught off guard by the sudden conclusion.

Notwithstanding, CHANCE OF A LIFETIME is a fun and incredibly steamy read and bodes very well for Ms. Oakfield's other stories. I would highly recommend this sexy tale to readers looking for a pulse-pounding erotic story that contributes some creative twists to the billionaire subgenre.
