I received an e-ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Meeting gorgeous, rich, and urbane Nikolai Barinov outside of his bar, the most exclusive in New York, isn’t fate. It’s something darker, and much more dangerous. And although he doesn’t know if he can trust me, he can’t help falling for me. He would have been better off believing his instincts. He’s not who he pretends to be, but what he doesn’t know is, neither am I.
Piquing his interest will be the easy part. Seducing him is necessary. But discovering who we both really are might make us realize the hardest truth, our futures were never really our own to begin with.
This is a stand alone contemporary romance, with an HEA ending, and a bit of intrigue.
This book is intended for adults only, 18+, due to sexual situations and adult language.
This book took me by surprise. It was nothing like you would imagine it to be.
The beginning is a little hazy but as the story follows and things become clearer, this book is deep and dark and destructive to the soul.
Sometimes, certain things aren’t what they really seem. This book is exactly that. There is perfect amount of mystery and sex and love and unimaginable things. It is perfect.
I loved Arabella, a lawyer with a plan, and even though Nikolai was hard to for me like at first, he slowly warmed up to me. The scenes which showed the true beauty of them both were written marvelously.
An action packed book, filled with the right amount of mystery and angst and confusion and sex and desire…What more could you ask for?
Recommendation: If you love mystery and a little bit of history blend, with an unlikely romance, you’ll love this!
