"A worthy addition to a sexy series." -- Publishers Weekly

Scandal. Wealth. Power. Seduction. Welcome to the world of the O'Malleys.

Ex-cop Charlotte Finch used to think there was a clear line between right and wrong. Then her fellow officers betrayed her, and the world is no longer so black and white. Especially when it's Aiden O'Malley, one of the most dangerous men in Boston, who offers her a chance for justice. The only catch: she'll have to pretend to be his fiancée for his plan to work.

Aiden can't afford to let anyone see the man behind the mask. To run the O'Malley empire, he has to be cool and controlled at all times. But the moment he meets Charlie, they're playing with fire. Her slightest touch is enough to send him over the edge. At first their "engagement" was a way to eliminate his enemies. Now he'll do whatever it takes to keep her safe-- even if he has to destroy his own family to do it.


“Come on.” Aidan stepped back and took her hand. “I have something to show you.”
He led the way up the back stairs and through a door she hadn’t explored yet. Charlie’s breath caught in her throat at the sight of candles flickering on a table laid out with a bottle of wine, two glasses, and a whole spread of Chinese takeout.
She let go of his hand and wandered over to peer into the boxes. “How did you know that crispy pork belly was my favorite?” Just like that, the pieces clicked together. She snapped her fingers. “You had your sister feel me out?” She’d thought Kiera had been asking about her favorite food so they could pick a local place next time they ventured out of the house. “Shady. Very shady.”
“I am a mob boss, after all.” He came around the table and poured them both a glass of wine. “I have it on good authority that this cab pairs well with Chinese takeout.”
“How classy of you.” It was like stepping into another realm of existence as she sat down and accepted the glass of wine while he filled two plates. When Aiden had said that he wanted a dinner date with her, she’d assumed that meant dressing to the nines and going out somewhere fancy. She said as much.
He snorted. “Eating out always serves a purpose. Either you’re making a point, or ensuring you’re seen by someone specific, or conducting a business meeting. We’ve been making points and playing parts since we met. I’d like to try something new—having a relaxing conversation. Just me and you, Aiden and Charlie, not the leader of the O’Malley clan and the former-cop-turned-fake-fiancée.”
“Do you think that’s even possible?” Such a short time together, and it was clear they both had a boatload of issues. It was easy enough to ignore when they were banging each other’s brains out or pretending to be something they weren’t, but holding down a conversation without those masks in place? She wasn’t sure it was a good idea.

Because I already like him.


Y'all, I can not tell you how long I have been waiting for this book. Since the beginning. THE BEGINNING. I figured that Aiden was playing the bad guy way too hard; I was so convinced that he was up to something. I was practically salivating at the end of the last book with the beginning of Aiden and Charlotte's first interaction. Before we get started, I want to thank the lovely people from Forever for my ARC copy. In exchange for my ARC copy, I give you my honest review. Let's get started.

We first start off with a time lapse. It's been some time since A & C first interacted. We learn a bit more about C and the chain of events that lead up to her being propositioned by Aiden. I really felt bad for her. Charlotte wanted to be just like her dad and earn his approval by doing the same kind of work. I felt that their relationship was already too strained before the incident and too forceful after the fact. It was obvious that her father was too unyielding with the laws, even with his own daughter. Despite her previously stellar work on the police force, no one gives a damn about her now. Except for Aiden, but it's not roses and kittens with this guy. He needs her as a piece in his game of destroying the Russians. He tells Charlotte what he needs from her from the get-go and offers her a chance to get her own brand of justice. If I was in her position, I would take the chance too. 

Despite his cold, and disinterested demeanor at times, Aiden's blood runs hot and even hotter around Charlotte. Despite his claims of using her just as a pawn, he wastes no time getting physical with Charlotte. Things are moving steadily alongas planned, until lo and behold, a spector from the past comes and messes up Aiden's meticulous plans for power. I must admit I saw this coming, but I couldn't have guessed who it would be. Side note, now that Aiden's book is complete, I am anxiously waiting for Kiera's book.
