Victoria Hart is supposed to be the enemy. She is an undercover detective who infiltrated my hotel and casino as an employee to take down my illegal enterprise. What she doesn’t know is I am fully aware of it. The operation I’m orchestrating is monumental compared to anything her mind could envision.
It’s the burning desire I feel when she’s near that I didn’t see coming. An unwavering draw to touch her, and the need to break down her walls is testing my restraint; however, nothing can stand in the way of my ultimate goal. She could destroy everything my brothers and I have worked toward to avenge our father’s death.
To keep the upper hand, it is vital to know your enemy. How deeply can I go, peeling back her intriguing layers while still concealing the truth? How much of Victoria can I claim before she’s too close … too close for me to let her go?
This novel is for a mature audience due to harsh language and descriptive sexual scenes, including aspects of BDSM. It also ends in a cliffhanger.
Yet another one of Scarlet’s books that I am in love with! Scarlet will not disappoint you in this first book of a new series!
Victoria Hart works as a detective and has been placed undercover at Hotel Submission in Vegas to try and undercover an underground prostitution ring or worse. Adrian Cassano is the hotel owner and fully aware of who Victoria is on her first day on the job. Keep your friends close and your enemies closer quickly becomes his motto with Victoria. While he should avoid her and make sure everything is on the up and up he is drawn to her. Adrian however has a whole new set of secrets that Victoria is unaware of that involve even the people closest to her.
One day, that is all the time that I needed to finish this new novel from Scarlet. The writing and the concept was fresh and new to me, and I simply couldn’t put it down without finishing the story. Adrian is the typical Alpha male, and you will fall in love with his sultry words and take charge attitude. Victoria is pretty much a bad ass and I can’t wait to see more from her. Be warned, this will end in a cliffhanger, but it’s tolerable, not a “throw your Kindle across the room bad” kind of cliffhanger. This is the first book in the series, but fear not you don’t have long to wait until the next in the series. Book 2 should be out in March! I can’t wait to see how this story unfolds!
I would like to thank Scarlet for the opportunity to read and review this new book, I can’t wait for the next!
