(Synopsis) Brandon Lawless is a man on a mission: obtain the information that will clear his father’s name. He’s willing to do whatever it takes—even seduce his enemy’s personal assistant, the beautiful and innocent Carly Hendricks. But with her beguiling smile and captivating intelligence, Brandon soon realizes he doesn’t want to deceive Carly, he wants to win her over—both in the boardroom and the bedroom.
Then a twisted crime leaves Carly vulnerable and Brandon finds himself reeling. The stakes of his mission are now life or death—Carly’s life. And Brandon realizes he’s lost his heart to an amazing woman and his plan must succeed, because the stakes are no longer just revenge, but a once in a lifetime love.
Although Carly is determined to resist Brandon's charms and focus on what needs to be done, he proves impossible to ignore. She doesn't get it - doesn't understand why he finds her so special or interesting. But, she knows there's definitely something about him that compels her to help him, despite his claim that he can't love anyone or that he's too damaged by what happened to him when he was young.
Like in Ruthless, there's a lot revealed regarding what happened to their parents, and it's far more interesting than you ever imagined. The ending was incredible and fulfilling and completely shocking. I love Lexi Blake's writing and how it builds upon events in each chapter and each book. The wait for the final book will be so hard, based on the new revelations and the fact that stoic Drew will finally get the girl. I can't wait.
