Publisher's Summary

She stands out like a flame in the dark. Out of place in my orbit, she is a bright splash of color in an abyss of darkness. An innocent in a den of sin. And I, Jared Rush, am a master of corruption. 

Like my paintings - dark, carnal images that have crowned me the king of the avant-garde art world while also making me a very rich man - I don't flinch away from my baser instincts. And now, every one of those instincts is hungry for the fresh-faced beauty who made the mistake of wandering into my lair. 

I don't know her name yet, but that's inconsequential. I know who she belongs to. And while she has nothing to do with the bad blood that's been festering inside me for decades, I can't help thinking about that old, unsettled score. I'm thinking about payback. And I already have a price in mind. One that begins with her. 

When it comes to getting what I want, I always play to win. But in the end, will the cost of my vengeance be more than I can bear to lose?

Contains mature themes.

🌻a couple of parts are ridiculously sappy!🌻

Lara Adrians’s books are included in my, “automatic purchase and download “ list. My first exposure to her work was the “ Midnight Breed” series, which is much different from this series, in that, the setting is paranormal. However, all of her books tend to include a Hero with a damaged soul and a Heroine that brings her Man into the light.

This contemporary series had world of self-Made millionaires, instead of Vampires, Demons and Shifters, however, the basic themes are very similar. With that being said, this cast and this world are a bit bland, compared to the Breed series. The characters are not quite as three dimensional and the stories aren’t quite as interesting. To sum it up, this series is pretty good and The Midnight Breed series is Excellent.

In addition, the couple’s moment of “ Love Declaration “ was a bit over the top, sappy; eye rollingly so!.

The narration was good, however, something about the cadence of Maxine Mitchell’s speech has always annoyed me, a bit. She’s very talented just not one of my favorites.

Finally, as far as this series, I have to admit that this was my least favorite book. I especially disliked the way that the fact that Jarred had been seduced by a much older women, when he was only 16, was not a criminal act.(Because he’s male?) The reverse situation would have found an adult male arrested. I tried to ignore these events, but it still lingered, in the back of my mind, and dampened my enthusiasm for this book!
