Their love was always in the cards.
He should have thrown her out. But when club owner Alexander Lavoie catches a mysterious blonde counting cards at his vingt-et-un table, he’s more intrigued than angry. He has to see more of this beauty—in his club, in his office, in his bed. But first he’ll have to devise a proposition she can’t turn down.
Gossip said he was an assassin.
Common sense told her to stay away. But Angelique Archer was desperate, and Lavoie’s club offered a surefire way to make quick money—until she got caught. Instead of throwing her out though, the devil offers her a deal: come work for him. Refusing him means facing starvation, but with a man so sinfully handsome and fiercely protective, keeping things professional might prove impossible.
I may be speaking too soon but Kelly Bowen might be making her way up on my HR authors list. This is my first book by her,
(I didn’t know that this was a part of a series, like always) but you can bet that I’m going to be buying more her books from now on.
The writing was fantastic and I loved our main characters, Alex and Angelique. Speaking of them, they had MAJOR CHEMISTRY!! Y’all the sexual tension between these two was killing me. Both characters had secrets and haven’t really been shown that they were worth the effort to be loved.
Even though this is a romance there is a mystery plot here also. Someone is trying to frame Angelique’s brother for murder. I didn’t expect this aspect but I was really surprised by how into it I was! I was shocked by the secrets that were revealed and who was guilty.
Overall, if you enjoy steamy romance with a hint of mystery then please pick this book up!
