Damien Fox lived up to his name.
Cunning, sly, and dangerous, fifty percent of Vegas’ strip clubs were his.
Whatever he wanted, money, attention, women, he got.
And now he wanted to buy my bar, no matter the cost.
I wanted him to go to hell on a first-class ticket.
He played a dirty game, and I followed his rules. I let him think he would win.
Despite our differences, it was clear to see that we were no more than two broken hearts colliding in the darkness.
Closed off, sexy, and holding a pain that would crush a lesser man, he was the ultimate sin.
One I couldn’t deny myself, even though I knew better than to trust a fox…
Damien Fox has certainly met his match with determined and decisive Dahlia Lloyd. After becoming the sole owner of ‘The Scarlet Letter’, Dahlia is plagued by Damien’s father to sell him the bar, however when his approaches fail Fox Sr. sends in his charismatic and charming son. Dahlia sees more in Damien than the influences of his father and together their connection becomes close to sinful.
I love a book with a strong female lead and Dahlia is definitely strong, both in head and heart. Dahlia has some good friends in her corner who won’t let anyone mess with their girl, unless they think it is for the best!
Damien comes across as the heartless Alpha Male who wants to dominate everything and everyone but behind the rough-tough exterior is a man who just needs a good woman.
This story did leave a few questions unanswered, namely why Fox Sr hated Lloyd Sr so much and who called the hit and why? These questions will become obvious when you read the book. Although this is a standalone, I know there is a second in the series and I’m hoping that some of the answers will be explained when I read it.
If you are after a good, contemporary romance, with some sex scenes then you will probably enjoy this book. I will be reading more from this author in future.
