From the New York Times bestselling author of the Driven series comes a powerful romance about reaching great heights through low depths.

Who says you have to play by the rules to get what you want?

Agreeing to meet Ryker Lockhart is my first mistake. Rich, handsome, and more than intriguing, he thinks blackmail will bend me to his will.

But he’s wrong.

I may have done a few things that weren’t exactly legal, but I have my own reasons for that. The last thing I’m going to do is let some high-powered divorce attorney come into my life, have my body, and rule my heart. Not to mention ruin everything that I have carefully built in just a short amount of time.

But as much as I try to resist him, and against my better judgment, there is something about him that has me agreeing to his proposal.

I’m putting everything on the line for him. I just hope I won’t lose everything when this is all over.

Once again, I didn’t do enough research and picked up the first book in a duet, and spent most of my time being disappointed with it!

I spent a lot of time being frustrated with Vaughan. She started quite strong, holding her own against an angry Senator, but seemed to dumb up a bit, especially around Ryker.

There was a lot of back on forth between Vaughn and Ryker, hot and coldness between them. I just wanted them to get on the same wave length. At one stage, Ryker took Vaughn to the Hamptons for some alone time, only to have a party. I was like WTF?!

This book, unfortunately, was not for me. I didn't really like the characters and the way the book unfolded. I won't be going out of my way to read the next one. I do hope to try another Bromberg read in the future, just to see if it was this particular story that didn't work for me.
A couple of teasers from moments that I did enjoy through the book.

“You do know if someone throws a punch at you for rooting for the Sox, I won’t defend you.”
“I do believe those are the most romantic words I’ve ever heard.”

She’s like goddamn lightning—that’s what she is.
She strikes without warning and is going to singe every damn part of me no matter what kind of shelter I try to hide under.

New York Times Bestselling author K. Bromberg writes contemporary novels that contain a mixture of sweet, emotional, a whole lot of sexy, and a little bit of real. She likes to write strong heroines, and damaged heroes who we love to hate but can’t help to love.

A mom of three, she plots her novels in between school runs and soccer practices, more often than not with her laptop in tow.

Since publishing her first book on a whim in 2013, Kristy has sold over one and a half million copies of her books across sixteen different countries and has landed on the New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists over thirty times. Her Driven trilogy (Driven, Fueled, and Crashed) is currently being adapted for film by Passionflix with the first movie slated to release in 2018.

With her imagination always in overdrive, she is currently scheming, plotting, and swooning over her latest hero. You can find out more about him or chat with Kristy on any of her social media accounts.
