Cara Michal has had to fight every step of the way to earn her place in the glittering seven-figure world of Wall Street. Years ago her hardworking father, a small-time investment adviser, was wrongfully accused of fraud. Now Cara is at the top of her game, supporting not only herself but her mother and brother. The occasional night out dancing soothes Cara’s soul, even as a bitter need for revenge against the man who destroyed her father makes inner peace elusive.

 Then, in a moment of heat, Cara kisses a sexy stranger at a party—only later to discover that the man is Branden Duke, her new boss, an infamous operator with a wicked reputation in bed and on the Street. Branden is a man who seemingly has it all—except a woman who connects with him on a physical and emotional level. Now that he’s found Cara, he’s not sure he can let her go, even if he should.

In spite of herself, Cara is drawn to this charismatic guy. He is a challenge like none she has ever faced in her life. Their passion for each other is unquenchable, surprising them both with its ferocity. Even as Cara wonders if she can trust this man with her heart and soul, the ecstasy of their love cannot be denied. But when the past threatens the present, the two are faced with a truth from which they may never recover.

As always my thanks go first to NetGalley and Random House Bantam for providing us with a copy of this book so that we could bring you this review.

Though things aren’t easy for Cara and Branden in what they can and can not do. They are willing to fight against everything to have their happiness. Branden’s protectiveness and strong Alpha-male personality truly does show and shine in this book. Though Cara has had a pretty tough time at her life in adulthood she doesn’t let it get her down. She is strong, a fighter and a person with an amazing heart. Though the author did a pretty good job of shocking me at one point, I was slightly disappointed that I was able to figure it out once I started to see the signs. Yeah I know now you are wondering what I’m talking about… well I guess you will just have to read the book yourself to find out. 🙂

This was a fun read and it has a bit of the suspense that I’d been missing in reading. I give this book 4 expensive kisses… 

Happy Reading… Adri
