A sexy page turner with delicious characters in the bratty rich girl and the older alpha detective. This is a continuation of the series based on the Astor family. Uber rich folks with a penance for opposites. Dad Landry was first up in a fabulous age gap romance that introduced the family which included not only hot dad but his three children and a crazy ex wife. The kids have morphed from not so nice rich brats into commanding adults and that includes the youngest and only daughter Lucinda who is the star of this story. She’s grown up and changed her ways mostly due to tragic events in her life. One event has her meeting the hot detective Savage Chenault. What a sexy beast! Alpha, fierce, hardened and 30 years older than Lucinda. Their attraction is hot right from the start but it takes a year or so and some stalking before the two meet up again. Lucinda is in a terrible position that includes danger, manipulation and blackmail. She reaches out to the sexy detective for help and he delivers. A not so fake marriage turns up the heat between the two when they join forces to take down Lucinda’s enemy. Their relationship is the stuff of her dreams as the hunky Savage dominates Lucinda in a panty melting way. It’s hot, hot, hot! The danger ramps up when a tie between Lucinda’s problems and Savage’s case is found with an intriguing BDSM element. Lucinda’s horrible mother is in the mix too. It’s a nasty cast of evil characters when the action turns deadly and lives are at risk. The romance is sizzling and the suspense has a few surprises with our couple in peril. The author took some liberties with the business elements of the story and a few other things but they didn’t really affect my enjoyment of the story. Overall this was a fast paced romance suspense that kept my attention with a hot couple caught in a fake marriage that turns into more. I like this Astor family and their rich people drama. This is a wonderful addition to the sexy series and I look forward to the next installment.
