Nice guys finish last. It’s a motto I live by. In my world, it pays to be the bad guy—and I’m very good at being bad. I have a thriving business built on blood, sweat and tears—literally. Illegal fights are my bread and butter, and no one interferes with that. Including an expensive-looking, blue-eyed blonde with a mouth that just won’t quit.

Babysitting Lela Morgan starts out as a favour to a “friend,” but quickly becomes more despite my cruel words and her bad attitude. But if there’s one thing I cannot afford to become in this world, it is soft. So I will fight against her charms. I will fight against her bratty behaviour and the way she pushes all my buttons.

As our relationship grows, I realise I’m in danger of losing control—and that’s never happened before. Ever. When all hell breaks loose will my bad guy rep still be intact? And more importantly, will my heart?

*This is an Enemies to Lovers, New Adult Romance.

Dark Heart blew me away! Gotta love and enemies to lovers romance, especially when the story doesn’t change course and the characters stay true to themself through and through! Absolutely LOVE Aaron and Lela!

Aaron is a no nonsense type of guy and has no patience or time for love yet alone having to put up with having Lela the brat under his roof. He tries so hard to keep that dark mantra about him but somehow Lela gets under his skin and in his mind.

Halfway through the story the intensity and suspense had me twitching in my seat- I was at the point of throwing in the towel and seeing what happened in the end lol ……. but of course that was just my mind trying to see what happens to them in the end. l totally did not follow my mind trick as the story was too good to skip around 😂

Dear heart lured me in from the beginning and bewitched be through and through! I absolutely hope to see more from Aaron and Lela.
